Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington, DC, on Monday harassed diners seated on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and allegedly demanded they raise their fists, according to videos posted on social media. A video showed one black female protester who entered the patio space of Mezcalero Cocina Mexicana on 14th Street NW and confronted a young white couple. A video posted by RawsMedia on Twitter captioned: “Protesters says people who don’t raise there fist is a white supremacist.” The protester can be heard screaming at the couple, “Is that why you don’t want to do it?” Two other diners are seen with their fists raised. Cowbells and shouting can also be heard, as the crowd heckled the couple. One protester yelled, “White supremacy!” at the couple. A staff member at the restaurant confirmed on Tuesday that about 200 protesters came to their restaurant on 14th Street the day before. The incident was a part of a protest in D.C. in support of Jacob Blake, a black man in Wisconsin who scuffled with police before he was seen reaching into his car and then fired upon by police. He is reportedly in stable condition. The shooting, however, has fueled already ongoing protests around the country by BLM and other associated groups. Protesters in recent weeks have been increasingly targeting restaurant-goers, who now with COVID-19 restrictions, are sitting on patios accessible from the sidewalk. Over the weekend, BLM protesters targeted Washington diners in other parts of Northwest DC, with one case leading to a physical confrontation. Metropolitan police arrived shortly after the confrontation, and followed the protesters as they moved on to other restaurants. Protesters also targeted diners in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Republican National Convention is being held this week.
What a bunch of uncivil losers and thugs.. To see the video of this, click on the text above. These diners had every right to a peaceful dinner that they paid for. Just imagine if this had happened to you. They should have called their waiter or owner of the restaurant and asked them to intervene. And, if they didn’t, they should have called the police and filed charges against these losers…and asked for a refund for the dinner from the restaurant. Hopefully the police there have seen this video and are taking action. God forbid this sorta things happens to you, stand up and don’t take this crap. We all need to push back against this mob mentality and not just take it. We shouldn’t have to be assaulted each time there is some (usually perfectly justified) police shooting some place, and BLM, Antifa, and other domestic terrorists use it as an excuse to attack everyone else. Oh, and shame on those gutless other patrons who raised their fists just so they wouldn’t get yelled at by that obnoxious female and her mob. I’m so over this crap..
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reported that there have been nearly five million first time gun buyers thus far in 2020. On August 24, 2020, NSSF contrasted the number of National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks from January 1, 2020, through July, 2020, with the number of checks from January 1, 2019, through July 2019. After adjusting for checks that were tied to concealed carry permits or other ends, other than sales, they ascertained that the number of checks for sales was 12.1 million. NSSF then surveyed retailers and found that “40 percent of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm.” Forty percent of 12.1 million is 4,840,000, or nearly five million sales. NSSF senior vice president of general counsel Larry Keane commented on the new gun buyers, saying: This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community. These first-time buyers represent a group of people who, until now, were agnostic regarding firearm ownership. “That’s rapidly changing, and these Americans are taking hold of their God-given right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves and their loved ones,” Keane said.
This is great news! Good for these folks exercising their 2nd Amendment rights to protect themselves and their families from all the craziness going on out there. For more, click on the text above.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) approved a resolution repudiating the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the purported “anti-hate” organization that has become a vehicle for smearing conservatives and critics of radical leftism. The resolution commits the RNC to officially “Refuting the legitimacy of the Southern Poverty Law Center to identify hate groups.” The SPLC bills itself as an expert on “hate groups,” maintaining a “hate map” that tracks them around the country. However, the SPLC has repeatedly added mainstream conservative organizations to its list, smearing their reputation and allowing violent far-left criminals to locate and target them. The RNC resolution notes that the SPLC’s smears “puts conservative groups or voices at risk of attack.” Conservatives and critics of progressivism that have been smeared by the SPLC include the Family Research Council (which is currently part of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom), the Alliance Defending Freedom, White House speechwriter Stephen Miller, One America News reporter Jack Posobiec, moderate Muslim Maajid Nawaz, and Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Nawaz successfully sued the SPLC for falsely labeling him an “anti-Muslim extremist” in 2018, winning a $3.3 million settlement from the organization. In 2012, far-left radical Floyd Corkins used the SPLC’s “hate map” to locate the offices of the Family Research Council. He proceeded to the FRC’s offices with a loaded pistol, and opened fire on the office’s security staff before being stopped by an armed guard. He later told authorities that he planned to kill “as many people as he could” at the FRC, and explained that his crime was politically motivated — he had seen the FRC on the SPLC’s list of “anti-gay” organizations. Court records submitted by the FBI confirmed that Corkins, a former far-left activist, had indeed checked the SPLC website prior to his attack: ” Corkins left and returned the next day, Friday, August 10th, to pick up the pistol. The selection and surveillance of the FRC and other targets. Consistent with his statement to the FBI, a subsequent search of Corkins’s family computer revealed that on the afternoon of Sunday, August 12th, Corkins used the computer to visit the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Website, as well as the Websites for the FRC and the second organization on his handwritten list.” Despite the fact that the SPLC has lost defamation lawsuits and has served as an inspiration for acts of domestic terror, major corporations continue to rely on it to identify “hate groups” and “hate speech.” In 2018, the Daily Caller revealed that Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter all work with the discredited far-left organization.

FINALLY!!! Here at The Daily Buzz we’ve been calling out Morris Dees (the founder of the SPLC) and the rest of that nauseating bunch for years, and we’re thrilled to see the RNC finally agreeing and calling the SPLC out for who they are. The SPLC has been a darling among Democrat politicians and the dominantly liberal mainstream media. They are regularly referred to by the liberal media (i.e. CNN, MSNBC, PBS/NPR, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc.) as an authority on so-called “hate groups.” The SPLC goes after groups like the FRC in Colorado Springs where that shooting took place because they’re a Christian pro-life group. To the SPLC that should grounds to call them a “hate group.” And yet, they don’t list the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) as a hate group, because they’re a self-admitted socialist/communist group, and black racist. To the SPLC, that’s ok…and they get a pass. The SPLC are such hypocrites!! Check out the official NBPP web site here, https://www.cbpm.org/nbpp.html and you be the judge of whether or not they should be called a “hate group.” We sure do! SPLC is nothing more than a far-left/liberal, anti-Christian, anti-conservative, politically correct, political advocacy organization. We’re glad to see the RNC finally step up and go on the record and call them out. Excellent!!! 🙂
In a new book about her grandfather, Dwight D, Eisenhower, titled “How Ike Led: The Principles Behind Eisenhower’s Biggest Decisions,” Susan Eisenhower writes admiringly about Ike’s pursuit of what she calls “the middle way.” In a decision that still infects elements of the Republican Party today, Susan Eisenhower says Ike’s pursuit of compromise and centrism led to his decision to nominate Democrats as well as Republicans to the Supreme Court. She quotes Ike’s attorney general, Herbert Brownell: “The President believed and acted upon the belief that the Supreme Court’s membership should represent divergent ideological points of view.” She says he believed this approach would “foster public confidence in the court…” Ike could not have foreseen future battles over all federal courts and how his successors would mostly nominate judges who fit their ideological views of the Constitution, Roe vs. Wade being the most egregious of many such examples. Our 34th president gave the Supreme Court two of its most liberal members, Justices William Brennan and Earl Warren. Ike would later come to lament those appointments, saying, “I made two mistakes and both of them are sitting on the Supreme Court.” Ike had success with the middle way as supreme allied commander during World War II when his advisers and heads of Allied nations agreed on a common goal, the defeat of Nazi Germany and Japan. Unfortunately, his noble sentiment works less well in politics because Democrats do not reciprocate. The purpose of politics is to win and to demonstrate one party’s ideas and policies are superior to those of the other party. If politics is only about being liked and praised, especially by one’s ideological adversaries, the party that adopts such a philosophy is doomed to perpetual defeat and to not have its positions — if it has them — taken seriously. Democrats have been known since the Great Depression as the party of government, luring more and more voters by dispensing free stuff and promising to take care of them. Government has replaced individual responsibility and accountability. We now subsidize bad individual decisions and failure and penalize those who have succeeded by playing by what used to be called “the rules.” For many, government has become an addiction with Democrats serving as “dealers.” Republicans have had only marginal success in countering this because they don’t seem to be able to come up with a set of unified policies and goals. Instead, the GOP has become like a protein shake dieters drink because it contains fewer calories. In too many cases, Republican positions resemble “Democrat-lite.” The growing debt is only one example. Republicans seek only to manage it, not reduce it. Susan Eisenhower quotes from a letter Ike wrote to a California friend in 1954: “I developed a practice which, so far as I know, I have never violated. The practice is to avoid public mention of any name unless it can be done with favorable intent and connotation; reserve all criticism for the private conference; speak only good in public.” In this, Ike demonstrated his good character, but that didn’t stop Democrats from criticizing him about everything from the rounds of golf he played to allegations by Harry Truman and others that he was in the pocket of “reactionaries,” which translated into today’s parlance means “extreme right-wingers.” There’s a cliche about sports: “It’s not whether you win or lose; it’s how you play the game.” In politics it’s about winning, and if you don’t win how you played the game won’t matter. Texas politician Jim Hightower wrote a book titled “There’s Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos.” Modern Republicans might learn from that Texas liberal.
Indeed.. And well said, Cal. Veteran columnist Cal Thomas is responsible for that outstanding, and timely, piece. He’s exactly right! Politics really is a contact sport. And, Democrats historically are much better at it than Republicans because they will do whatever it takes to win; even cheat, lie, and worse. Republicans tend to “take the higher road,” and then lose…like John McCain, Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush (second term), and on and on. Politics is about ideas, and battling it out in those arena of ideas. And, the GOP for too long has always tried to take that “higher road” so as not to offend, or worse, to be called “racist, sexist,” and so on. I had a boss at Ft. Carson, CO once who said, “it isn’t about winning or losing. It’s about winning.” Exactly.. While we should never lie, cheat or do anything illegal or amoral, we shouldn’t just lay down on the railroad tracks and get run over like a bunch of suckers. Trump is the first GOP President I can remember who gets that, and actually fights back. He’s the honey badger that doesn’t care…and it’s refreshing to see. Thanks Cal! 🙂
