Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday refused to condemn Black Lives Matter protesters who demanded white folks “give up their homes,” instead saying there is a need to “establish just policies and address the core issues of brutality in order for us to come together.”
The Democratic socialist made her remarks Saturday during a stop at the Woodside Houses, a NYCHA housing complex in Queens, where she greeted residents and spoke to locals and reporters.
“Since this is happening in Seattle, I don’t have as close of a view on what’s happening. Of course I represent New York’s 14th Congressional District, so I don’t know the details of the protests that are going on, but I think what’s really important is that we make sure people are safe and it’s important for us to enact legislation and policy that actually addresses the core reasons behind why all of this kind of disruption is happening,” AOC said, adding, “until we do that, this is going to keep occurring, whether we want it to or not.”
And just to be clear, they want this keep happening.
Yesterday, a Dallas judge took away Jeffrey Younger’s say in his son James’ medical, psychological, and psychiatric care, giving that power to James’ mother, who wants to “transition” him into a “girl.” After receiving national attention in October 2019, the bitter parental dispute had ultimately resulted in both parents getting a say in decisions regardingJamesand his twin, Jude; this ruling effectively reverses that.
James Younger’s mother,Dr. Anne Georgulas,will now be able to enroll the eight-year-old in school as a “girl” named “Luna” and subject him to transgender medical procedures.
They’re starting to mandate that your boys have their balls removed.
My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).
This was written by Kamala Harris’ father. Heals-Up Harris’ great-grandparents were slaveowners. That is going to be awkward when she starts spouting off about reparations.
Talking about Kanye today got me thinking about the black community and some of the positive changes that I see happening within it. I don’t browse YouTube very much, so take this with a grain of salt, but this guy is my favorite Youtuber who hasn’t been kicked off the platform. Barricade Garage is the name of his channel. He does some pretty awesome comedy sketches that are intelligent and red-pill.
If there is one thing I have learned from watching Big Bear, it is that comedy has an amazing ability to disarm people’s biases and entrenched ways of thinking. It is the ultimate persuasive art and peak rhetoric. Hopefully more individuals such as this can disarm more people with comedy, particularly in the black community.
Finance executives, confident the ticket has what it takes to topple President Donald Trump, raved about her experience in government, as well as her fundraising prowess.
“I think it’s great,” said Marc Lasry, the CEO of investment firm Avenue Capital Group. “She’s going to help Joe immensely. He picked the perfect partner.” Lasry is also a part owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.
Blair Effron, the co-founder of Centerview Partners, texted “GREAT CHOICE” to CNBC. Citigroup’s Ray McGuire sent a similar message.
When she ran for president last year, Harris saw contributions from executives in a wide range of industries, including film, TV, real estate and finance, according to data from the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Her campaign finished raising close to $40 million.
With a smarter constituency, the Democrats would need to worry that someone would notice that the authors of the wealth gap are celebrating their candidates, but lucky for Creepy Joe and Horrible Harris, they’re all idiots. Not that it will matter. These losers have no chance of winning. Many are commenting that these two are the Dems’ sacrificial lamb to be offered up to the God-Emperor.
If the Dems were serious about trying to take on Donald Trump, they would not have chosen the epitome of hellmouth Washington insider.
And the Heels Up Harris memes are going to be great. Willie Brown’s side bitch has ascended the throne.
I bet your Woodstock attending parents never thought free love would turn into this.
Notice how many times this heathen uses the word “liberated”. That’s a word that is commonly tossed around on both the Left and the Right. On the Left, it means to remove systematic oppression, however vaguely those systems are defined. On the right, liberation, more commonly referred to as freedom, pertains to individual autonomy. What many people fail to realize is that both movements lead to the same inevitable end. (Why Liberalism Failed by Patrick Deneed is a good in-depth exploration of how classic and neo-liberalism are joined at the hip.)
Despite the flowery language, when people long for freedom, they rarely intend the noble desires to be free from tyranny or sin. Rather, they mean the exact opposite. They desire freedom from moral constraint.
In the above video you see what happens when people are liberated. They animate their passions and become parodies of human beings.
I mean, it’s not nearly as morally compelling as the usual Storm & QAnon narrative, but it is not suffering from a lack of evidence. I guess as long as heads roll I don’t care about how it all goes down.
I have always found Kanye West to a refreshing voice. No one can accuse him of being unoriginal. He is his own man and that reputation will always belong to him.
I didn’t know what to make of his public conversion to Christianity a few years back. It is often difficult to discern any logical reason for why Ye does what he does. I guess you could say I was skeptical. Now, I am far less so. Someone has impacted him in a powerful way and I think that someone is God.
Kanye’s genius, outside of musical production, has always laid in his brutal honesty and uncanny takes. It has a prophetic type quality to it. And if there is one thing that African-Americans need now more than ever, it is a prophet.
