Colin Kaepernicks decision to not stand for the national anthem has inspired two Oakland City Council members to remain seated for the pledge of allegiance.
Desley Brooks and Rebecca Kaplan are the latest Oaklanders to follow Kaepernick in protesting oppression of minorities.
On March 21, 2009, Lovelle Mixon, a convicted felon wanted on a no-bail warrant for a parole violation, fatally shot four Oakland, California police officers. Mixon initially shot and killed two Oakland police officers during a traffic stop. After escaping on foot to the nearby apartment of his sister, Mixon then killed two police SWAT team officers attempting to apprehend him. Mixon was then killed as officers returned fire.
The killings made it one of the worst days for law enforcement in California history
Let me guess... they’re, uh, “Amish,” right?
These America haters are making me sick. Ship them all off to Catalina where they can start their own country.
Come election time vote them out
“Let me guess... theyre, uh, Amish, right?”
No, a Black and a Jew!
In what part of the world are “minorities” treated better than they are in the territory once known as “the United States of America”?
If there is such a place, these “mistreated minorities” should be evacuating from this territory, in a SELF-DEPORTATION, and heading for that Nirvana where they shall in all ways be treated “fairly”.
Catalina is not NEARLY big enough to house all the “Americans in name only”.
This is where it begins. A group, or race, or culture decides to overthrow the “State” through this. it may seem small, but we created this country starting with small protests. So the end of this nation is coming sooner then we thought. Maybe the next generation, maybe this generation. Either way, our values, freedoms and our culture that exists now is being challenged by a culture that is less intelligent and has far less value on life and freedoms. This new culture seeks to impose it’s values over yours, believes it can take from others anything of value and have no consequences, and demands that you bow down to them and submit to their demands.
This planet is doomed. Thank you, Democrats. After you lost the Civil War, your set out of a mission to destroy the US. And your hate is going to change the world into a cesspool
United we stand, divided we fall. If they aren’t for us, they are against us.
“Mixon was then killed as officers returned fire.”
Undoubtedly an oppressed minority.
Yet they will ask, no, DEMAND, that the government they hate send them lots of our money. Typical ungrateful third-worlders.
“oppression of minorities” huh?
Not even in quotes, so I guess that’s a “Fact” to the writer
Do we have enough real Americans in Oakland to vote them off. I doubt it. America is saturated with communists minded rotten people that it is highly unlikely they will be removed. America is in trouble, real trouble.
They gonna give the money they got from the US since they’re no longer part of it?
The JAF POWER ALLIANCE. JAF = Jew African.
I was vaguely astonished that this earlier effort hadn't really spread. I'm vaguely astonished that the Pledge of Allegiance even takes place in Oakland anymore; I'd be less astonished if there were some city law banning it.
For Colin Kaepernick:
Time to kick some council members out.
January can’t come soon enough.
Kaplan isn’t an ‘Amish’ name.
Minorities oppressing minorities in Oakland. Kinda hard to pick a side
Ex-Black Panther leader says Oakland councilwoman assaulted her
A former head of the Black Panther Party has filed a police report and a claim against the city of Oakland alleging that she was assaulted by Councilwoman Desley Brooks at a popular downtown restaurant.
Elaine Brown, 72, is seeking monetary relief from the city, saying she suffered physical and emotional harm from the assault on Oct. 30 at 126 Broadway, which is the Everett and Jones Barbeque restaurant.
City Council member Desley Brooks assaulted me in a dispute arising from city business, Brown wrote in a one-page complaint released by the city.
According to the claim, Brown sought medical attention and wants more than $10,000 from the city. Persons who intend to file civil lawsuits against the city must first file claims.
