    A woman dining outdoors who was harassed by protesters in Washington, D.C., wrote an op-ed saying she didn’t like being bullied for not raising her first, but that she still supports the Black Lives Matter movement. Lauren Victor, a photographer and urban planner, has since taken part in Black Lives Matter demonstrations since the incident, according to an opinion piece she wrote for The Washington Post on Friday. “I wholeheartedly support the Black Lives Matter movement,” Victor wrote. “I also support an individual’s choice to participate in a protest, or not.” “In retrospect, I would have done the same thing...

    Italian Woman, Kidnapped by Muslim Terrorists, Converts to Islam and Returns to Rome JUN 6, 2020 10:00 AM BY HUGH FITZGERALD When Silvia Romano was freed from her 18-month captivity in the hands of al-Shebaab, after the payment of a large ransom by the Italian government to her captors, she arrived in Rome to be welcomed as a returning hero. The Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister were both at the airport to greet her. There was one loud dissenting voice, from a member of Parliament, Alessandro Pagano, who derided Romano as a “neo-terrorist.” This horrified many of the Great...

    MONTREAL -- On Sunday night, afIt's clearly not good for business, says a manager of Steve’s Music, a Montreal institution. But don’t get him wrong, he says: it was all worth it. “Without any questions whatsoever, it's a noble demonstration and it's clearly far overdue,” says Lenny Lanteigne. It was “unfortunate that a few hooligans turned it into a free-for-all,” he says. “It is awful. But next to what some people are going through, this is nothing.” The store’s insurance company is currently reviewing the damage, and Lanteigne isn’t sure yet how it’ll all turn out financially, he said.

    White privilege is often described through the lens of Peggy McIntosh’s groundbreaking essay “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.” Originally published in 1988, the essay helps readers recognize white privilege by making its effects personal and tangible. For many, white privilege was an invisible force that white people needed to recognize. It was being able to walk into a store and find that the main displays of shampoo and panty hose were catered toward your hair type and skin tone. It was being able to turn on the television and see people of your race widely represented. It was being...
  • Did Bill de Blasio Just Become the Most Hated Man in America?

    As the riots and destruction across America continued for the fifth day after protests originally over the death of George Floyd devolved into looting and destruction in Minneapolis, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio despicably attempted to score political points by blaming President Donald Trump for the “atmosphere” of “tension and hatred and division” behind the protests. Yet he managed to alienate the anti-Trump left a few hours later by refusing to condemn police who drove a cruiser into a crowd of protesters. “I’ve not seen the specific words coming out of the White House or actions but I can...

    ...Good news for looters, you can find some overpriced junk with Teigen's name on it at Target....Maybe if Target stopped doing business with radical lefty celebs who help looters and rioters, its stores would be less likely to be looted. But Vladimir knew what he was talking about. Corporate America can't and won't stop following the lead of the radical lefties...Keep doubling down on social justice and eventually you'll run out of stores. When you make America a target, you also make yourself a target.
  • We learned that in Minnesota the National Guard, State Police, and the local Police turned and ran and left the citizens to defend for themselves. So I have a couple of questions for our “Protect and Serve” authorities. (Vanity)

    1. What determines the point at which you will turn and run and abandon the citizens you have sworn to protect and serve? 2. Can you draft a policy which gives the citizens a clear understanding of when you will turn and run? This is vital to the community because they need as much notice as possible to arm, organize, and deploy to have a chance to overcome the threat. 3. Hypothetically, suppose a crowd of thousands of thugs approaches a community and you turn and run and abandon your citizens. The next day, thousands of bodies of thugs are...

    Just four days after George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, and the video sparked protests across the country, Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz welcomed in a few dozen African American community leaders to talk at One Government Center. Mayor Kapszukiewicz acknowledged that Toledo is 652 miles away from Minneapolis, where the incident happened that resulted in Floyd's death. But he said the video made him sick to his stomach and he made a long-term commitment to opening up communication, and having difficult conversations like he had. In front of the Safety Building after the meeting, the mayor...

    The Bangladeshi-Indian restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, in Minneapolis' 3rd Precinct was burned to the ground during riots that ravaged the city Thursday night into Friday morning. The restaurant sat in the epicenter of where America's riots began following the death of George Floyd. In fact, 18-year-old Hafsa Islam, the restaurant owner's daughter, saw Floyd being arrested while she was making a Door Dash delivery. She learned later in the day that Floyd had died. Hafsa was originally upset with the fact that her family's business – and main source of income – was lost until she heard her father say, "Let...

    We knew from recent rallies and riots that it’s highly likely the groups behind today’s riots are Domestic terrorists, revolutionary communists, US based radical Islamist organizations and others related to the Democrat Party. Today we have more proof this is the case. We reported a few days ago that Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s daughter tweeted out support for the protestors: Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter Isra Hirsi, retweeted a list of supplies for “comrades” who are rioting in Minneapolis. Isra Hirsi is the co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike and her Twitter bio says she ‘hates capitalism.’ Isra Hirsi...

    Nearly 100 mayors across the United States are begging President Trump to import as many refugees to the country as possible in order to “bring cultural vibrancy and diversity” to American communities.In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month, about 88 mayors — from Denver, Colorado to Columbia, South Carolina — urged Trump to end his latest executive order that gives American communities more veto power over whether they want refugees resettled in their communities.The mayors said that more refugees are needed to bring about “cultural vibrancy and diversity” to their often small towns, though they admit refugees are an initial...

But despite a week of mainstream media not even asking why the man was being deported, it has finally emerged that the Afghan Muslim migrant had been convicted of a "violent assault" on a Swedish citizen, among other crimes, and had been rejected for asylum in the nation. The young woman live streamed the whole incident and it was viewed nearly 5 million times on Facebook...

    "Well, the supermen marched us, without food, water or sleep to Limberg, a distance of about sixty miles, I think, where we were loaded and locked up, sixty men to each small, unventilated, unheated box car. There were no sanitary accommodations -- the floors were covered with fresh cow dung. There wasn't room for all of us to lie down. Half slept while the other half stood. We spent several days, including Christmas, on that Limberg siding. On Christmas eve the Royal Air Force bombed and strafed our unmarked train. They killed about one-hundred-and-fifty of us.

    To some, they might seem an unlikely twosome: a former president and former first lady from two different administrations, different political parties, different generations and different upbringings. But George W. Bush tells PEOPLE that he feels a real fondness for Michelle Obama. “She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,” says Bush, in an interview to launch his first art book and new exhibit, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors, a collection of his paintings of post-9/11 war veterans.

    In the mid-1970s, America was introduced to “Stockholm Syndrome” when 19 year old Berkeley student and heiress Patty Hearst was transformed from kidnap victim to domestic terrorist by identifying with her captors. Stockholm Syndrome is trauma-induced mental enslavement to the person or group causing the trauma, and Hearst has ever since been its poster child. Her identity hijacked, she joined her Simbionese Liberation Army kidnappers and eventually went to jail for crimes she committed voluntarily in that false persona. In the unfolding spectacle of the Milo Yiannopoulos pederasty scandal, America is being introduced to a far more potent and common...

    Two days after President Donald Trump was eviscerated by both the mainstream media and Swedish officials for his comments indicating Sweden was having a problem with its generous refugee policies, riots erupted in the country. Mr. Trump was largely mocked for the comments he made at a Florida rally over the weekend, where he used Sweden has an example to justify his extreme vetting policy. “We’ve got to keep our country safe,” Mr. Trump said at the rally. “You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden....
