    President Trump concluded his Friday night Mount Rushmore speech by announcing the signing of an executive order creating a “National Garden of American Heroes” in which the statues of those anarchists would consign to the ash heap of history would reside to remind future generations of how we became who and what we are, to remind us of the struggle against tyranny and injustice. Trump righteously stood before the visages of the likes of Thomas Jefferson, the maligned slave-owner who helped create a nation and a process that would end slavery. He stood before the face of Abraham Lincoln, the...

    As protests erupted in Los Angeles in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, some of the demonstrations were led by Asian Americans looking to the past to inform their activism. The young activists recalled the 1992 Los Angeles uprising, which was sparked after a jury acquitted three Los Angeles police officers of use of excessive force for brutally beating Rodney King and failed to reach a verdict for a fourth officer, as well as the killing of Latasha Harlins, a 15-year-old Black girl who was shot by a Korean convenience store owner who said...
  • If America Is So Racist, Why Are There So Many Race Hoaxes?

    American Greatness ^ | 7/7/20 | Dennis Prager
    As I wrote nearly three years ago: "Perhaps the second greatest libel — and certainly the most widespread — is that America is a racist country that oppresses its minorities and women. We can call it the American Libel." (The greatest libel was the infamous blood libel, the fabricated charge spread in Europe for hundreds of years by Christian anti-Semites that Jews kill Christian children to use their blood to bake matzos — unleavened bread — for Passover.) But if America is so racist, why are there so many race hoaxes? Virtually every time we read about a swastika painted...

    A White woman accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail at a police car in late May during a George Floyd protest in Brooklyn claims she was given the device by a Black protester, New York prosecutors say. But investigators said the woman got the bottle for the Molotov cocktail from a friend in upstate New York, according to court filings from the US District Court, Eastern District of New York.

    The Washington Post opinion editor who said white women are lucky black people aren't looking for revenge has hit back at criticism saying America's 'patriarchal society' has created the notion that white women must be protected from black people. Karen Attiah, 34, wrote on Twitter that 'America is a racist *and* patriarchal society' and that the 'toxic ideas of white masculinity' must be broken down to end racism. She later tweeted about the nickname 'Karen' being retired for 'dangerous white women' after revealing some of the threatening emails and texts she has received since her first controversial tweet.

    Meghan Markle ditched best friend Jessica Mulroney in the midst of a race row in order to appear 'woke', people close to the Canadian stylist have claimed. Mulroney fears she may never work again after black blogger Sasha Exeter said she was threatened during an argument over Black Lives Matter, which saw Mulroney lose jobs with Canadian broadcaster CTV and Good Morning America. The 40-year-old's agents are now in talks with Hollywood executives about reviving her career, but fear the Duchess of Sussex's absence may be the nail in the coffin.

    Mayors of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Georgia and Tacoma, Washington spoke about how their experience as black women helped them lead their communities.

    Moroccan-born Said Mechaout has been sentenced to a maximum 30 years behind bars over a year after he murdered Italian man Stefano Leo in Turin because he was “white” and “happy”. The murder took place on February 23rd on the banks of the river Po in Turin but it wasn’t until around a month later that 27-year-old Mechaout, a naturalised Italian citizen born in Morocco, confessed to the killing. Italian prosecutors Ciro Santoriello and Enzo Bucarelli both pushed for the maximum sentence of 30 years in the case after remarking that Mechaout showed little to no remorse following the murder....

    Calls have been made to 'cancel Hamilton' just days after the Broadway musical's streaming debut on Disney+, after a renewed focus on it's lead character, Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The show, created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, portrays Hamilton as a 'young, scrappy, and hungry' immigrant and someone who was passionate about the abolition of slavery. However, in light of recent Black Lives Matter protests, the story has now come under greater scrutiny - with some pointing out that Hamilton was a slave trader.

    A reader sends in this YouTube of a highly contentious Zoom meeting this week of the New York City Community Education Council for Manhattan District 2. It’s a public body, so it’s got to be visible to the public. What a spectacular ****show [ed] of Social Justice Warrior insanity! They’re all lefties who seem to hate each other. I’ve cued it up to a couple of exquisite moments of knife-fighting. Look: In this segment, a Latino board member lays into Broshi and Goldberg, two Jewish progressives on the board, accusing them of not caring about black and Latino kids, of...

Officers came under attack with bottles after they tried to clear a 'block party' in Havelock Close, White City.

    Princeton has dropped Woodrow Wilson’s name from its school of public policy due to the racism of the 28th U.S. president. However, Princeton hasn’t come to grips with a more fundamental problem — the name of the college itself. A woke graduate informs us that Princeton, both the town and the school, takes its name from King William III, the Prince of Orange. The famous Nassau Hall, which is still in use, also honors the Prince of Orange, a descendant of the house of Nassau. So does “Old Nassau,” the school’s theme song. In addition, orange and black, the colors...

    The murder of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer forced many communities to reckon with their role in anti-Black racism. The conversation became more real for members of the Arab and non-Black Muslim communities in the U.S. when they learned that it was an employee at Cup Foods — a convenience store owned by a Palestinian American Muslim man — who called Minneapolis police on Floyd over a suspected counterfeit $20 bill.

    The National Football League announced it will play what is known as the Black national anthem before every Week 1 game, ESPN reported exclusively. The sports network also reports that the league is considering a plan to add the names of victims of police brutality to the uniforms of players “through decals on helmets or patches on jerseys.” “The NFL also may produce educational programs about victims,” ESPN reported. I didn’t know there were two national anthems— a white and black national anthem. No matter. The NFL can screw itself.https://t.co/KUnUdEsHIH — Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) July 2, 2020 It is...
