Coulter: Great Moments in Racism — the Dash Cam Tapes

If you were watching MSNBC last Sunday, you may have seen Imani Perry, professor of African-American studies at Princeton University, and wondered, as I did, Why do I know that name? Professor Perry’s delightfully original point was that we need to “think in serious contemplative ways about the depth of American inequality.” So perhaps we know her from her incisive commentary! I certainly haven’t heard anyone talk about American inequality. It really made me think. But then I suddenly realized it’s that Imani Perry! The one who nearly destroyed a policeman’s life by falsely accusing him of racism! Back in February 2016, Perry launched a series of tweets, alleging the following: — She was “arrested in Princeton Township for a single parking ticket three years ago.” — She was cuffed — FOR A PARKING TICKET — and not allowed to make a phone call “so that someone would know where I was.” — “I was afraid,” she wrote. “Many women who look like me have a much more frightening end to such arrests.” Oh my gosh, she could have been killed! — She was “working to move from being shaken to renewing my commitment to the struggle against racism & carcerality.” Naturally, her story became instant international news. The president of Princeton leapt to her defense, firing off a letter to the chief of police, demanding an investigation. (I know Perry is a professor, but you’d think that, by now, more people would say, Let’s wait for the facts.) Perry attributed the universal acceptance of her story to her “small build” and her association with “elite universities” such as Princeton. Just a thought, but it might also be because she’s black. The Princeton police spent several days investigating before finally releasing the dashcam footage. I’m hoping they dragged it out to allow public outrage to reach maximum velocity. Perry wasn’t arrested “for a single parking ticket three years ago.” After being stopped for going 67 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, officers ran her name and discovered her license had been suspended. She was arrested for driving with a suspended license. The officer was almost comically polite to the professor. He gently explained to Perry that because of her suspended license, “What you’re going to have to do is come with us, it’s $130, so if you have that money we’ll be able to post and we’ll be able to get you right back out.” He offered to drop her at the university, saying, “You really shouldn’t be driving because of your suspended license.” He informed her that police are required to cuff anyone being transported to the station and assured her that no one would have to know. As for not being allowed to make a phone call, he clearly told her that once they got to the station, “You can make as many phone calls and texts as you want.” A policeman was kind to her, so Perry turned around and accused him of racism, secure in the knowledge that no one would dare challenge whatever she said. It would have been firing offense for him, but not for her. She is still gainfully employed as a Princeton professor — and a sought-after guest on MSNBC and NPR! (It must be because of her “small build.”) There are dozens of these cases. Tweet me your favorites! Here’s another, from one of our blessed immigrants, Minati Roychoudhuri, professor at Capital Community College in Connecticut. (Really! That’s not one of my proposed new names for Yale, currently named for a slave trader.) In 2015, Roychoudhuri (B.A., M.A., Utkal University, India) wrote a letter to the commissioner of public safety, as well as “the Senator and Legislator of my constituency” (she teaches English), claiming a policeman had racially profiled her. Her letter said: “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me. Further, the officer had checked ‘Hispanic’ in the race category in the infraction ticket.” The professor also noted that, “I teach about diversity and the negative impact of racial profiling, I have now become a target of the same insidious behavior! It is easy to connect the dots with the nationwide racial profiling which has led to serious consequences.” (It’s such a boon to have immigrants teaching about the horrors of “racial profiling” in America because we can’t get anyone to do that!) Then police released the dashcam footage. Below are relevant portions from the transcript. I didn’t include the part where the officer asked Roychoudhuri if she spoke English because he never did that. It was a bald-faced lie. Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today? Roychoudhuri: No. Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration. … Officer: Ma’am. So I wrote you the infraction for that improper lane change that you did. Roychoudhuri: Please, you know, I probably crossed over there, and that’s why I did it. … Obviously I did that. … My (record) is absolutely clean. Officer: OK. So I wrote you an infraction for that improper lane change that you did. Roychoudhuri: OK. Officer: The answer date is on the front of it and the instructions are on the back of it. Roychoudhuri: Wait, what? Officer: It’s a mail-in infraction. All you have to do is mail in, either a check or money order, and mail it in. Roychoudhuri: OK. Officer: All right. Roychoudhuri: Thank you. Guess who’s still teaching at Capital Community College and paid by Connecticut taxpayers? Our sacramental immigrant! (NOTE TO MSNBC: Roychoudhuri would make another excellent guest to discuss racism in America.) After the 2014 killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri — a justified killing according to everyone, including Obama’s Department of Justice — the big demand was that police be required to wear bodycams. OOPS! That was a miscalculation. Turns out body cameras are the best thing that ever happened to cops. Which reminds me: The public has still not seen the bodycam footage from the officers arresting George Floyd, explaining how he ended up on the ground. Maybe we should wait for the facts.

Agreed..  Thanks to conservative firebrand Ann Coulter for the common-sense smack upside the head.

Opinion/Analysis: Democrats exploit cities — They’ve ruled for decades but guess who they blame for problems?

There are many tragic ironies unfolding since even before the death of George Floyd. As we see sincere people demonstrating for change in this country regarding how people of color are treated within policing and the justice system, Democrats and left-wing leadership see this righteous activism as an opportunity to reinforce the status quo. I say this as a former community organizer for the left a great deal of my adult life. Whenever there was an issue on which people could be “organized” the goal was always to increase that rage and concern in order to access as many people as possible. For the Democrats, marches based on outrage and people gathering to protest are the most effective means with which to gather names and to expand political influence. The horrible irony is the passion of these well-meaning citizens is being exploited by the Democrats and their “social justice” handmaidens to actually maintain the political status quo. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, millions and millions of corporate dollars are pouring into the Democratic and left-wing establishment “social justice” organizations. Once again, the good intention is to help spur “change” in the inner city and for people of color in this country after watching, for decades, nothing improve for people in cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Baltimore and Detroit. Voter registration efforts are a focus of the Black Lives Matter organization, the NAACP, and other Democratic-allied organizations. The message seems to be that the more you vote if you are a person of color in an urban area, the more your voice will be heard and the better your life will become. But how has that been working out? Is the suffering endured by people living in cities run by Democrats somehow going to change by voting in more of the same? The arterial message with Democratic crisis voter registration is that it is Republicans who are evil and at fault. All of this is Donald Trump’s fault, and voting in more Democrats like Joe Biden, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Keith Ellison is going to, somehow, improve everyone’s lot in life. But that, of course, is a lie. The cities suffering with the most economic and social injustice are cities that have been controlled by the Democratic establishment for years, and in most cases, for decades. Chicago has been controlled by Democratic mayors for 89 years. Detroit for 58 years. Baltimore for 53 years. Washington, D.C., for 53 years. Minneapolis, with George Floyd’s killing the spark of the latest demand for change, has been controlled by Democrats for 42 years. Los Angeles for 19 years. And New York, in the latest round of disastrous governance, has suffered under Bill de Blasio for six years. The messaging from both the Democrats and the media is that Donald Trump, the guy who’s been in office for three years, is the source of all the injustice — or so say the people in charge for half a century or longer. It’s not surprising that those responsible for the continuing decline of America’s great urban areas would like their constituents to look elsewhere to blame. The attempt to deflect and accuse others for the continuing decline of urban America has been generally successful. After all, why else would cities like Chicago and Minneapolis and Baltimore keep voting in their tormentors? One tactic is to promote extremes accusing others for the disasters, issuing slogans like “Defund the Police” so real policy solutions won’t be discussed. The emotional reaction also keeps local constituencies from looking at their local failed and culpable leadership that is directly responsible for the untenable situation. This circus is made possible in large part because Democrats are very good at deflection, theater and stunts, and their compliant media loves covering it. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., a city facing many economic and social problems, and led by Democratic mayors for over half a century, decided to paint a massive “Black Lives Matter” banner on the street leading to the White House. When it comes to stunts, that’s a good one. It is the ultimate in what I term “Patronizing Mayhem,” where politicians give the impression of acting on a problem with one hand while maintaining the pain with the other. Many community activists are beginning to recognize and admit that, despite (or because) of decades of Democratic leadership and involvement of so-called social justice organizations, the lives of people of color have not gotten better in the inner city. And even some of the deflected blame may not be the core of the problem. According to The Washington Post, there were 15 fatal shootings of unarmed black men by police in 2019. Even one is too many, but the messaging has been that the police are responsible for a “genocide” of African-Americans in this country. There has been massive suffering and death in the black communities in this country, that is true. But the question remains, why? The Chicago Sun-Times reported the grim news of what that great American city still endures. “From 7 p.m. Friday, May 29, through 11 p.m. Sunday, May 31, 25 people were killed in the city, with another 85 wounded by gunfire …” The newspaper tells us this was the most violent day in 60 years in that city, and it wasn’t due to police shootings. “‘If immediate action isn’t taken to address systemic racism, poverty and ‘black folks being shot down and killed out here like dogs,’ [Rev. Michael] Pfleger said the last weekend in May will merely serve as a ‘coming attraction of what’s going to happen next.’” Is it finally becoming undeniable that if Chicagoans want to genuinely address the systemic problems of their city, they will have to look directly at the Democratic leadership they have relied upon for 83 years — the same Democratic leadership at the city and state level controlling the social policies destroying lives. For those living in the inner city, the corporations that are sending millions to groups like the ACLU, Black Lives Matter and the NAACP, among others, are doing so with the intent to improve peoples’ lives. The past, however, indicates they are instead funding efforts invested in the political status quo keeping people trapped in cities where generations of lives have been lost to self-obsessed politicians and a political party that sees the suffering of people as a political necessity.

Exactly!  And, well said, Tammy.  Tammy Bruce is the author of that outstanding piece.  Tammy is president of Independent Women’s Voice, is a radio talk-show host, and a New York Times best-selling author.  Excellent!     🙂

Antifa: The truth behind the mask

As protests for the killing of George Floyd and the unfair treatment of African Americans by the hands of police officers took place across the nation, a lot of attention has turned to Antifa, an anti-fascist group that has remerged. Just last week President Trump called the group a terrorist organization on Twitter saying, “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.” During a press conference at the White House, the president went on to say, “Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.” Attorney General William Barr echoed Trump’s comments on Antifa and said the Department of Justice will treat violence from individuals associated with Antifa as domestic terrorism. “Such senseless acts of anarchy are not exercises of First Amendment rights. They are crimes designed to terrify fellow citizens and intimidate communities. There are groups that exploit the opportunity to engage in such crimes as looting. We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity,” Barr said in a press conference. In December of 2019, Fox News spoke to Andy Ngo, a conservative journalist who was assaulted by Antifa multiple times, including on June 29, 2018, when members of the group punched him in the head and pelted him with milkshakes and other objects. “The city has had by this point, years of protests [that] turned into riots and they still have not learned from any of the mistakes of the past,” Ngo told Fox News. “They have not evolved and changed the policing tactics. Over and over its always what is now a mantra for them that they will not go in to intervene because it could incite the mob.” Fox News also spoke to Gabriel Nadales on Oct. 15, 2019. Nadales is a former Anfita member who told us there are a lot of different groups within Antifa itself. “You’ll find a lot of the members may do it for animal rights or for anti-capitalism, pro socialism. Personally, when I was in Antifa, a lot of the activism I did was for animal rights,” said Nadales. “But once they come together in the Black Bloc and behind the black mask, they kind of forget all that. They go for that common goal of silencing whatever their opposition at the moment is and oftentimes, we’ve seen them silence people simply for political disagreements.”

 

Georgia state trooper tells protesters in viral video: ‘I only kneel for … God’

A law enforcement officer in Georgia is going viral after he said he “has much respect” for Black Lives Matter protesters after the death of George Floyd — but he only kneels “for one person.” Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler was allegedly asked to kneel during a demonstration in Hartwell while a bystander was recording. “If I didn’t have any respect, I wouldn’t [be here],” Saddler explained. “I was supposed to be out of town this weekend with my wife. I took off today, this weekend, but I’m out here to make sure y’all are safe.” He added, “Don’t go there with respect, OK? I have much respect, but I only kneel for one person.” Someone in the crowd replied: “And that’s God,” which the trooper confirmed: “God.” “God Bless him!” Ryan Fournier, founder and co-chairman of Students for Trump, wrote in a tweet. Others praised him in the original post as “one of the best in the business.” The state trooper’s comments come as many police officers have been urged to take a knee in solidarity with protesters as some are pushing to “defund the police.”

Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler is definitely a role model.  To see the video in question, click on the video.  Great job, Sergeant!      🙂

 

Trey Gowdy: ‘Defunding the police is the single dumbest idea I’ve ever heard’

Former House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy told “Sunday Morning Futures” that “defunding the police is the single dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.” “Who is going to process crime scenes, arrest bad people?” Gowdy, a former South Carolina Congessman, asked during an exclusive interview with host Maria Bartiromo. “Who is going to enforce any law, child sex abuse, homicide? Who is going to do it if it’s not the police?” Gowdy made the comments after a recent push to weaken law enforcement in the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody. Days after Floyd, who is black, died after a white officer knelt on his neck, Black Lives Matter announced a “call for a national defunding of police,” and notable Democratic voices as well as celebrities have echoed the sentiment. Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, who appeared with Gowdy on “Sunday Morning Futures,” agreed, saying defunding police is “a ridiculous idea.” “It is not an idea whose time has come. It should never come,” Scott said. “The nation requires law and order. We need order in our streets and the easiest way to have that is to have a strong presence of character-driven law enforcement officers.” Scott then brought up the fact that he recently reintroduced the Walter Scott Notification Act, which requires states to report deadly shootings by law enforcement officers. Walter Scott was a black motorist who died in 2015 after running from a white police officer during a traffic stop and then struggling with the officer who ran after him. The officer testified that Scott grabbed his Taser and he then shot him, firing “until the threat was stopped,” which is what he said he was trained to do. “One of the reasons why I proposed … [the] Walter Scott Notification Act [was] to get law enforcement agencies to report the data on the use of force that leads to death,” Sen. Scott explained on Sunday. “Without that actual information in an aggregate value, we don’t really know what’s going on.” He went on to note that “fewer than 45 percent of agencies actually report their information to the FBI so I think it would help all of us to get a clear picture of what’s going on within the law enforcement community.” “Within communities of color, the issues with law enforcement are much broader than who shoots whom,” Gowdy said. “I mean that’s incredibly important, but it’s arrest rates, it’s sentencing disparities, it’s access to bond, it’s access to diversion programs.” The calls to defund police departments come as uniformed law enforcement officers across the nation suffered injuries during George Floyd protests that turned violent in some cities, with officers being pelted with bricks and bottles. A police officer in Las Vegas was shot in the head, while police in New York and New Jersey were injured by bricks and rocks. In Los Angeles, one officer suffered a fractured skull and officers in other cities suffered injuries in hit-and-run incidents.

For those who are unaware, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) happens to be black.  Given what’s going on, it’s worth noting.  Hopefully we’ll get to a point where such things are irrelevant.  Thanks to both Sen. Scott, and former Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) from the great state of South Carolina for their wise input.  Trey is 100% spot on when he says that defunding the police “is the single dumbest idea” either of us has ever heard.  It’s the latest crazy notion put forth by the extreme liberal left, and championed by America haters like AOC and her ilk.  Giving in to this mob mentality would be a disaster for any community that would endorse such lunacy.  Imagine someone is breaking into your home, or you’re having a domestic violence issue, and so you rightfully call 911…only to hear a recording that says, “sorry.  We’ve been defunded.”  Yeah…it’s THAT crazy.

Felon Charged with Murdering Retired Police Captain David Dorn in Riots

A convicted felon has been charged with murdering St. Louis, Missouri, 77-year-old retired police captain David Dorn during riots in the city last week. The St. Louis Police Department announced Sunday that 24-year-old convicted felon Stephan Cannon has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, armed criminal action, and unlawfully possessing a firearm after he allegedly murdered Dorn. On June 2, according to police, Dorn was guarding Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry in St. Louis while riots, fires, and looting broke out. Surveillance footage, police said, shows Dorn arriving at the pawn shop, which had already been looted by Cannon and other men. That is when Cannon can allegedly be seen on the footage approaching the corner of the pawn shop with a gun, and it is at this time that Dorn was shot, killed, and left on the sidewalk bleeding. While searching Cannon’s residence, St. Louis police officers recovered a TV that had been looted from the pawn shop that night. Cannon is currently being held without bail. Dorn had served nearly 40 years with the St. Louis Police Department before retiring in 2007. Dorn also served as police chief in the small town of Moline Acres, Missouri.

This is a story we’ve been keeping an eye on the last couple of days.  And, we’re happy to report this piece of garbage is finally in jail and being held without bail, as well he should.  Hopefully the others who were accomplices and also looted, and then stood by and did nothing but videotape “Cap” bleeding out for FaceBook will be rounded up as well, and charged.  Of course, we’ll continue to keep an eye on this story.  For more, click on the text above.

St. Louis police release surveillance video of 7 ‘persons of interest’ in death of retired officer David Dorn

Surveillance footage capturing a group of men breaking into a pawn shop around the same time of the killing of a retired police captain attempting to prevent looting was released by St. Louis authorities Friday. The video shows seven “persons of interest” running into Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry on Tuesday during a night of widespread looting and rioting following a mostly peaceful protest over the death of George Floyd. The men all have their faces covered — six with masks and one with another covering. One man takes off his mask and puts his left hand to his mouth. Authorities believe he may have cut himself. At least two of the men were armed with handguns. The video runs from 2:13 a.m. to 2:17 a.m. David Dorn, 77, was found dead from a gunshot to the torso around 2:30 a.m. Prior to working security at the pawn shop, he served as a police captain with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and a police chief in nearby Moline Acres. He retired in 2014 after more than 40 years in law enforcement. “They called him ‘Cap.’ That was the Cap. That was the Cap, everybody knows that was him,” Dorn’s son, Brian Powell, told Fox2Now, adding that “police work ran through his veins.” Investigators said Dorn was killed responding to a burglar alarm at the shop. He often checked on the store, which is owned by a friend. “David Dorn was exercising law enforcement training that he learned here,” St Louis Police Chief John Hayden said. His death occurred during a night in the city that saw looting and property damage following protests over the May 25 death of Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn. Dorn was found on a sidewalk in front of the shop. A Facebook Live video captured some of his last moments. Powell said if Dorn was still alive, he would have shown empathy toward his attacker. “My dad, he is a forgiving soul. So he would have forgiven that person and try to talk to them because he was real big on trying to talk to youth and mentoring young people as well,” he said. “He was trying to get them on the straight and narrow and everything.” President Trump weighed in on Dorn’s death earlier this week, saying he was “viciously shot and killed by despicable looters” and that “we honor our police officers, perhaps more than ever before.” Anyone with information about the fatal shooting is asked to contact St. Louis homicide detectives. A $45,000 reward is being offered by Crime Stoppers for information leading to an arrest.

Or you can reach the St. Louis PD Homicide Div directly by calling:  (314) 444-5371.  For more info, and/or to see the video of these “persons of interest,” click on the text above.  These are pieces of garbage; total scum. If you have any info that’ll lead to an arrest of these maggots, you could get up to $45K.  Normally we don’t do the crime beat thing here at The Daily Buzz.  But, I’m originally from St. Louis, and this one hits close to home.  So, we’ll make an exception here. I’m disgusted by this and we need to find these animals and arrest them.  We can’t have thugs and bullies like this on the street.  “Cap” was the father of 5 and the grandfather of 10.  He was a good man who served his community and was loved.  What happened to him cannot stand.  We’ll, of course, keep an eye on this developing story.

Utah National Guard confirms they were kicked out of DC hotel, mayor claims budget issue

The Utah National Guard confirmed Friday that 200 service members are being kicked out of hotels in the nation’s capital as D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser clashes with President Trump over the handling of the George Floyd protests in the city. Bowser, who wants all non-D.C. troops out of the city, blamed the National Guard relocation on a budget issue and said the city will not pay for the accommodations — amid days of protests over racial injustice, some of which have been violent. “Last night, we were informed that our service members would be relocated from their hotel rooms,” the Utah National Guard said in a statement Friday. Maj. Jaime Thomas told Fox News they identified another hotel and will relocate Friday. “It has been heartbreaking for our Utah National Guard service members to witness the pain, suffering, and frustration in our communities across the nation,” the National Guard added. “The Utah National Guard has been supporting civil authorities with our top priority of protecting lives as well as preserving property and critical infrastructure in our nation’s capital.” The District of Columbia’s National Guard said it is working to resolve the matter after hundreds of soldiers had been staying at a Marriott hotel near downtown Washington since being activated on Monday. On Friday, Bowser said the removals were over a budget issue, saying D.C. residents would not cover the hotel bills. “This is overbilling,” she said. Pressed on the matter, the mayor said they did not “evict anybody from a private hotel” but said the city will not pay for National Guard housing. She said they have no desire to see soldiers on the street but said the armory or the home state of the National Guard should pay for their arrangements. “If they are going to use rooms we reserved, they have to pay for them,” she said. “At no time did we intend or would we would be able to effect evicting any guardsman from any hotel,” Bowser added. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah – who broke the news Thursday about the removals “Fox News @ Night” – has slammed Bowser as an “ungrateful mayor” over the situation. Bowser said Friday she hasn’t had a chance to talk to Lee. In a new statement Friday afternoon, Lee said: “Evicting Utah National Guard personnel from their hotels after a late-night shift risking their lives to protect Washington is a shameful, petty, discrediting decision by Mayor Bowser.” Lee, who has worked in all three branches of the federal government, said on Fox News he’s “never seen a situation like this.” “I find this very strange,” Lee said. “They [the soldiers] came here at the request of their country and now, in the middle of it, in the middle of a deployment, in the middle of their fourth consecutive all-nighter, they’re being told they’re not welcome there. That is unpatriotic; that is unacceptable.” The senator explained these young soldiers – with 10 hours notice – left their homes to protect the White House and other properties. He said many soldiers work overnight and will have to collect their belongings at 10 a.m. and find another place to stay. President Trump slammed Bowser over the issue on Friday. He tweeted: “The incompetent Mayor of Washington, D.C., @MayorBowser, who’s budget is totally out of control and is constantly coming back to us for “handouts”, is now fighting with the National Guard, who saved her from great embarrassment over the last number of nights. If she doesn’t treat these men and women well, then we’ll bring in a different group of men and women!” Heavily armed federal officers in tactical gear have been on the district’s streets for days, after demonstrators set fires, broke store windows and stole items from the shelves and left police officers injured. The Trump administration has made an effort to show the use of force in Washington. Hours before a 7 p.m. curfew on Tuesday, cars were being stopped at military checkpoints downtown, and a cavalry of armored military vehicles could be seen driving through the district. Bowser said the administration had floated the idea of taking over the Metropolitan Police Department, a proposal she strongly rejected. She threatened to take legal action if the federal government attempted to do so. Trump announced from the White House on Monday that if “a city or a state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”

Wow..  Absolutely stunning..   Mayor Bowser (D) is a disgusting, petty, ungrateful, bitch….and that’s being nice.  Shame on her for putting these poor Utah Guard troops through all of this.   As an update, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have secured hotel alternative accommodations in Washington, D.C. for these fine Guard troops from Utah and South Carolina.  So, we’re happy to report they’ll be ok.  That being said..  This Mayor needs to be called out for her politically-motivated stunt.  Billing issue, my ass.  She spent today renaming a street across from the White House to “Black Lives Matter” Blvd.  Yeah..no joke.  So, somehow she found the funding, and had a sign made up and everything…because that fit her political agenda.  BUT, taking care of heroes who left their families on a moment’s notice, and flew from their home state to protect the White House, monuments, and have been washing profane graffiti …were kicked to the curb because she doesn’t like the military.  What a nauseating piece of you-know-what.  Kudos to Sens. Lee and Graham for stepping up and making those Guard members are being taken care of.

Gutfeld on conflating protesters with rioters

As New York City burned, Gov. Andy Cuomo said this Tuesday on Twitter: “There are those who want to intentionally blur the lines between peaceful, legitimate protesters and looters. The president is among them. They want you to watch the videos of the looting – not the video of Mr. Floyd being murdered. Don’t fall for it.” So, a governor whose citizens and taxpayers are under attack, claims the biggest problem is witnessing the attack. The mayhem. The looting. Attacks on cops. Because that “blurs the lines between peaceful protests and looters.” I supposed he would prefer him joking around with his brother Chris on CNN again and again. So, who is blurring the lines between protesters and looters? It’s not me. It’s people like him. Because every time you mention the rioters, they accuse you of smearing protesters. We do understand the difference. Does he? Do you remember when you condemned actions of jihadists, and suddenly they accused you of Islamophobia? That when you criticized beheadings that was the same as calling all Muslims “extremists?” That idiotic response revealed who does the blurring. And it’s that blurring that hurts the protest movement. But by exposing the violent mob, you protect the future of legitimate protest. Not doing it, forever links it to destruction and death, while saying or implying that black grievance only matters if it’s expressed violently. That’s nuts. If that’s what you’re saying, Andy, you’re the one sowing discord. You’re the one who left us hanging – sacrificing citizens to the mob – just so we don’t blur any of your precious lines.

Agreed..  Thanks Greg.  That was another “Gregologue,” from yesterday’s (June 4th, 2020) “The Five.”  To watch it, click on the text above.

Gutfeld on the murder of Mr. Dorn

David Dorn spent his last moments on Earth bleeding to death on a sidewalk in front of a looted shop early Tuesday. He was a retired police captain in St. Louis and he was protecting a store. Dorn was 77. His death was shown on Facebook Live. He was a black man. A family man. A good man. Black lives matter. But not to looters, rioters and agitators. Shall we blame this on systemic racism? Who shot David Dorn? Who knows? A stranger? Maybe Seth Rogan or Patton Oswalt already bailed him out. Dorn’s son, Brian Powell said of his father’s death: “It was senseless – over TVs, over stuff that’s replaceable. They’re forgetting the real message for the protest and the positiveness that’s supposed to come out of it and we get this negative light that’s shown on a situation that really needed light to be brought to it.” Dorn’s daughter-in-law, Vanessa Powell, said: “I just hope that the person that did this that they come forth or whatever because this is just so senseless, and I’m just I’m tired of it, I’m tired.” The fact is, fealty to the mob begets only more of the mob. Redefining bloodlust as justified leads to death. And not just David Dorn’s, but a country’s too. A day ago was Blackout Tuesday, when virtue-signalers set their Instagrams to all black to support the protests going on around the country. What an analogy for the media. The media blacks the violence to hide their culpability. Which protects incompetent leaders, criminals and an army of cowardly journalists. Their job: keep the chaos on endless repeat. -Maybe David Dorn’s death can change things. Maybe we can protest loudly in his name and loudly demand action. It’s time, because there’s no Superman coming to save the day for us. There’s no one but us. On CNN, Chris Cuomo said: “Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because I can show you that outraged citizens are the ones who have America what she is and led to any major milestones. Be honest, this is not a tranquil time.” No thanks to Chris Cuomo. As cities are ravaged, he says protests don’t have to be peaceful.
