  • Federal courthouse closing next week in anticipation of Breonna Taylor decision (Louisville KY)

    09/18/2020 6:22:19 PM PDT · by Severa · 7 replies ^ | Sept 18, 2020 |
    The federal courthouse in Louisville will be closed all next week. The reason, we're told, is due to the pending announcement on a decision in the Breonna Taylor case. Officials at the Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse and Customhouse confirmed it Friday afternoon. They said any proceeding scheduled for next week will either be continued or conducted by video conference at the discretion of the judge. WLKY reached out to the mayor's office about the courthouse and timing on a decision. We were told, "We have not been told when an announcement from the AG is coming, but we believe we...

    Three people are now facing criminal charges for harassing diners at a restaurant in Pittsburgh during a Black Lives Matter protest over Labor Day weekend. Misdemeanor charges were filed against Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24, on Monday. It's unclear whether they've been taken into custody. A viral video showed the trio and other protesters screaming 'f*** the white people' and yelling other obscenities at diners outside the Sienna Mercato restaurant on Penn Avenue on September 5.
  • Straight Outta Marxism: BLM Protesters Take Over Grocery Store to Protest Lack of 'Access' to Grocery Stores

    At some point, people will get sick of this. Black Lives Matter activists occupied a Trader Joe’s in Seattle this week, claiming to be protesting “lack of access to grocery stores” and explaining to patrons “how capitalism exploits the working class.” That “capitalism” line is straight from Marxism. BLM founders do admit to being “trained Marxists.” Their training is trickling down. Yes, Karen*, it has. Socialism and communism exploit the working class and everyone else under their bootheel. Free speech, free press, and freedom of religion tend to die under socialism and communism. Gulags and concentration camps for punishing wrongthink...

    Independent journalist Jacob Engels the publisher of the Central Florida Post was out having dinner tonight in Washington DC when Black Lives Matter came marching by. Black Lives Matter protesters were out on the streets of Washington DC harassing people.

Our City!” and other violent and anti-law enforcement chants. I rushed down to record and...

    Protesters vandalized the home of San Jose's mayor Friday in a demonstration against the Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake. They marched to the mayor’s home, then ran off after spraypainting the house. Mayor Sam Liccardo and a number of neighbors scrubbed the graffiti off later Friday. Around 150 protesters marched near San Jose City Hall in a Black Lives Matter demonstration earlier in the day, calling to defund the San Jose Police, according to the San Jose Spotlight. By nightfall, a smaller group of 30 or 40 protesters had veered off to march toward Liccardo’s home.

    ...Let’s stop and think about what is really being said about Trump’s culpability in the riots and violence. The looters, vandals, arsonists, thugs, and, in some cases, murderers, are not responsible for their actions because they’re reacting to Trump’s “rhetoric,” his “provocations,” and his tweets. This excuse—Trump made me mad so I can be violent—should be dismissed as ridiculous. It reminds us of what an abusive husband says to justify beating his wife. If only Trump would apologize and learn to adopt leftist policies, then there could be peace. But he insists upon charting an offensive and non-conforming political agenda....

Listed demands from a BLM affiliate in Louisville include racial quotas for staff and ownership of business suppliers, donations to organizations run by non-whites, and adjustment to dress codes.

    The Louisville cadre of Black Lives Matter activists sent a letter to many downtown businesses demanding they “diversify” their employees. But at least one Cuban-American business owner objected to the threatening tone of the letter and posted his displeasure on Facebook. Fernando Martinez owns a restaurant group with several Hispanic eateries. He accused BLM of using “mafia tactics” and explained his position. “There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in a public Facebook post. “… All good people need...

    Businesses and non-profits in the East Market District of downtown Louisville, also referred to as NuLu (New Louisville), have received letters from left-wing activists demanding that they give in to a list of racial reparations or face having their businesses get negative reviews online. The activists “sent out a three-page contract to NuLu businesses following Friday’s protest where LMPD says 76 protesters were arrested and charged with obstructing a highway and disorderly conduct,” WAVE 3 News reported. “Some also picked up assault charges, accused of throwing bottles at police officers.” WDRB News reported that the “demands came with a deadline...
  • The Tragic Tale of Nini’s Deli, “Canceled” by BLM/Antifa in June

    07/28/2020 2:58:46 PM PDT · by splash73 · 7 replies
    The Nini’s Deli incident—mentioned briefly in a post here earlier this month—was a particularly malicious act perpetrated by the jack-booted thought police that is BLM/Antifa. Surprisingly, it didn’t seem to get much coverage on either side. Apparently the restaurant was started by 2 Cuban immigrant brothers & had been a local favorite for years. The chaos began in the early aftermath of the George Floyd incident, when BLM/Antifa started requesting (requiring) Chicago businesses to release statements in favor of BLM. The Nini’s mgmt. politely replied with a statement to the effect of “All Lives Matter,” supporting the police, & professing...

He also promised that the NFAC would return to Louisville. "Four weeks from today, we gonna come back here, and we should have an answer," he said....

    One of the things that has distinguished the present radical leftists from a lot of the leftists is that they no longer have any limits. Once upon a time it was understood even among folks on the left that it was wrong to go to protest at someone’s home. Not anymore. These radical leftists have made it a part of their cannon to force local politicians to do what they want. We’ve seen that in places like Seattle where they’ve marched on the homes of the mayor and members of the city council. Marching on the mayor’s home had the...
