As Western civilization recedes across the United States, the rising tide of color asserts their control.

First order of business: respect for law and order must be retired.

For good. [Controversial Artwork Removed From State Capitol, NBC Connecticut, 2-19-2019]:

What some say is artwork supporting police at the Capitol has been removed over concerns that it could actually represent opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement.

A handmade wooden plaque was donated weeks ago by a member of the Capitol Police. The office of Legislative Management said they decided to hang it in the police memorial in the concourse that connects the Legislative Office Building to the Capitol building. The thin blue line is recognized by some as a symbol of support for law enforcement.

But others view it as a symbol of opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement, and it was seen during a Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017.

“In the context of history behind it a lot of my members expressed a lot of concerns especially in this building,” said Rep. Brandon McGee, (D) chairman of the Black & Puerto Rican Caucus.

“We are not anti- you know – police we support our men in blue but we also know that given the history around black people, people of color with respect to this particular issue. I just think it was necessary to share our concerns with our leadership,” McGee explained.

The plaque was taken down Tuesday morning. The Fraternal Order of Police, who represent thousands of officers throughout the state, said its removal is an attack on police officers and that they would like to see it placed back on the wall.

“I’m saddened and disappointed that in times the times were in now that something like this could actually happen,” said John Krupinsky, president of the Connecticut State Fraternal Order Of Police.

Artwork in the concourse is usually put through a vetting process, but the Office of Legislative Management said they felt the piece was appropriate to hang without vetting in a corner that is specifically reserved for the police memorial, and that they also made the call to take it down. They said the piece itself is now in a storage room waiting to be returned to its owner.

In Connecticut, Black Lives Matter. Brown Lives Matter. But to those ascending into the halls of power, Police Lives Don’t Matter.

    When the shit hits the fan, payroll, pensions and health benefits will carry the day with the police. Wonder what shape CT’s public pensions are in.

  2. I do not support BLM. I support law and order. I do not support the thin blue line.

  3. A democrat, as usual, leads the charge

  4. I seem to recall that BLM was initiated by a cabal of black lesbians. The movement is as much anti-hetero and anti-patriarchy as it is anti-white. If there’s one thing people are terrified to buck, it’s the gay Mafia. (Witness our useless president announcing replacing even more American workers with immigrants… with the loathsome Tim Cook at his elbow.)

  5. Yawn. The police today are so cucked and compromised that I have nothing but contempt for them. And, for decades they have been treating decent white Americans like criminal negroes all so that they can not be accused of being ‘rayciss’. The hell with them. Buy guns like I did, carry said guns, and protect yourself. They are more interested in their pensions than their sworn duties.

    • Agree: Augustus
  6. What are they afraid of: White women protesting negroes who die because they pull a gun on an officer, or they don’t follow directions? If the negroes would follow the law, maybe they would live longer!

    Nobody cares about black lives except the far left who uses them as agitators. Most white people, and black people, don’t care about these animals. I celebrate when these thugs bite the bullet.

    The left and negroes thought a white supremist killed a little black girl in Houston, and that got FULL media coverage until it was found out that two brothers did the deed. Then the coverage faded away like a smelly fart.

    I can’t stand them and would pay them to move back to Africa. White people will not be free until the negro is gone.

    The cumulative effect of decades of cultural Marxism, or secular leftism or liberal progressive and mass immigration is finally plowing across the country in a giant disingenuous retarded avalanche of contempt. There’s no stopping this.
    Hold on kids, America may blow sooner than we think. I think we have until the 2020 election. After that, minority majority America will start falling apart. God help us.

    Someone needs to make a Star Wars fan movie where the stormtroopers are hanging around the “Mos Eisley Best Donuts” shop all day (as Princess Amygdala has issued a problematic order from the clownish house of fat representatives) as outside various aliens have a good day, Han Solo gets his starbike stolen, then gets shot and Luke’s extended family is having trouble of the non-imperial kind.

  9. Trevor H. says:

    Pity our nation’s police officers.
    They actually know what’s up.

  10. Rich says:

    Now I wonder if the Connecticut GOP is smart enough to tie this to the democrats before the next election? If there’s one thing the people of Connecticut like, the overwhelming majority, it’s Law and Order. They live an old style suburban American lifestyle up there, mostly secure from the Negro cancer the rest of us endure and they want their kids to be able to play in the yard. Trouble is, the repubs up in Connecticut are scared to death someone might say “racist” within 10 feet of them.

    So much for law and order. They should have just told this “movement” that we are keeping the plaque in place. Blacks are going to whine and moan no matter what. Stand up for yourselves and keep nice things.
    Why even humor these low IQ blacks?

    • Agree: Augustus
  12. Time to doxx the people who made this decision and make a declaration that they and their families will be denied police protection until the plaque is replaced and an apology issued.

    Also, security cameras should be aimed at the plaque to prevent any un-official removals or vandalism from occurring without full documentation.

  13. Any time the population of White created cities drop below 77% White (non-hispanic) they are on a downward spiral of violence, filth, crime, decay, noise, and all other things degenerate. You just have to look at the correlation of demographics and decay…
    Demographics is destiny

  14. Its only a matter of time before the Stars and Stripes is removed all across the country to be replaced by one that looks like it should be flying in Africa. It will have a large pyramid at the center, With the symbols of black power at each point, a basketball, a handgun and a bucket of KFC.

    They deserve nothing, but I too would gladly give them “reparations” money as long as every one of them also gets repatriated back to Africa. permanently. No return here. Not even to visit.

    Anytime they flap their lips about getting slabery cuckbucks, we need to broach to topic of back to Africa as a condition. Reframe the debate.

    Getting rid of them would pay for itself inside of six months.

  17. This is all a modern day Uncle Remus tale: Brer Rabbit [BLM] feigns offense and guilt ridden Brer Bear [Government] bends over backwards. Meanwhile back in the briar patch Brer Rabbit and his cronies laugh their cottontails off at the gullibility of dull-witted Brer Bear. What a bunch of buffoons.

  18. USA 1943 says:

    Affirmative Action was supposed to be a De Facto Reparation, The Activist’s asking for Money if given to them will be asking for more, after most are back in poverty after wasting it on Blunts, Video games and flashy jewelery or cars, and many on illegal drugs, it has to go that way as the ones with brains and good sense are vilified, called sell outs etc, remember the saying if you give an inch they will want a mile, a better way for reparations is to go really hard on crime until the Black Neighborhoods are as safe as the White neighborhoods, and offer a free ticket to whatever countries will take them, also with the TransAtlantic slave trade, the West African Nations were selling slaves most of whom were prisoners of tribal wars, and were sold for guns, cigarettes and alcohol, since these African Nations sold them shouldn’t they have to pay reparations? Nigeria is an oil rich country.

    I frequently do business in Waterbury, Hartford, and New Haven. The locals think nothing of relieving themselves against any wall at any time of the day. Would the Black and P.R. caucus please come by and collect this artwork as well?

  23. Bullshit wedge issue tailor-made for manipulating the yobs.

    Cop is a safe job. Here are the top dangerous jobs. Not a cop amongst ’em.

    The 10 Deadliest Jobs: Deaths per 100,000

    1. Logging workers: 128.8
    2. Fishers and related fishing workers: 117
    3. Aircraft pilot and flight engineers: 53.4
    4. Roofers: 40.5
    5. Structural iron and steel workers: 37
    6. Refuse and recyclable material collectors: 27.1
    7. Electrical power-line installers and repairers: 23
    8. Drivers/sales workers and truck drivers: 22.1
    9. Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers: 21.3
    10. Construction laborers: 17.4

    To put the risk of policing in perspective: fisherman and loggers are 10 times more likely to be killed on the job than a police officer, a farmer is 2 times more likely to die on the job, according to national figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A logging worker is eight times more likely than a police officer to die on the job, and a garbage man is three times more likely to die while working.

    Don’t be taken in by silly wedge issues. They are just meant to make a fool out of you.

  24. TwistTie says:

    Blacks whine , Whitey jumps.
    All the comments that are saying the police suck…. bet y’all are perps who interact with police on a regular basis. The way our leaders have bowed to BRA , yes police are just zookeepers waiting for the day they collect their pension and leave the ghetto nightmare behind. Stay safe officers!!

  25. The truth will out.

    Readers on here pretend like they are somehow different from normal old-people conservatives. But then bring up cops and suddenly they show their true colors. Just the usual old-fashioned war-mongering, vote in favor of billionaires, vote against their own interests, suck up to their owners, support anything that makes their lives worse because it’s a “principal” or something, troglodyte right-wing conservative from ancient times.

  26. @obwandiyag

    Shut up, Ol’ Windy Bag.  Only cops have to deal with the deliberate predation of various criminal classes and organized societal hostility.  That takes a much greater toll on the soul than mere hazards of falling trees and strange stuff in garbage.

    The “Thin Blue Line” flag is a violation of flag etiquette.

  28. Anon[403] • Disclaimer says:

    Actually, cops have things associated with their jobs most folks don’t think of.

    Cops go to work and then they are generally called to places where bad things have happened.

    Often, the people of some areas need more service while strangely showing far less respect than others where cops spend less time working hard.

    Cops often experience needless violence against themselves and others.

    When cops get PTSD they generally can’t get treatment as it would take them off work, a job they likely love and have the courage to do while most do not.

    If proper mental health is of officer concern, paperwork from private counseling sessions about work related pressures can be used against them in divorce proceedings.

    Compare and contrast these issues to the trials and tribulations of other workers who are more industrial/agricultural workers.

    Usually AFTER the bad things have happened to secure the perimeter and draw the chalk lines around the victims.

    Boo HOO . … Have you noticed police & fire are always “exempt” from those glorious “Right to Slave/Work” laws that destroy Civilian’s collective bargaining? Why do the Police not DEMAND their “R to W? BECAUSE “right to work” IS A FRAUD.

    They get best pay, benefits, pensions, after mostly 20 years . ….
    If you can’t handle the job HONESTLY – — QUIT

    Not too many Whites hanging out there, right? Most Whites in Connecticut live in very segregated areas.

    Please, do not censor art. You may not like it. You may even hate it. But we should have free expression, otherwise we are like the Russian people under Stalin, who censored both art and music. We are better than that. Please rehang the artwork. Thank you.

    You can’t read apparently. COP IS NOT AN UNSAFE JOB. That is what we in the intelligent world call a “fact.” I know you don’t know this, but you can’t argue with facts. But you obviously don’t know what facts are because you try to argue with them. And fail of course, because facts can’t be argued with.

    If the stars and stripes flag is changed to reflect something more likely to show the BRA reality, flag poles will also have to change. I suggest that those eagle stands be replaced by staffs with an African goat head.

  37. @Archie Bunker

    Mostly, police face housewives and soccer moms. They face commuters speeding against local ordinances and treat them like criminal savages.

    Small town cops with nothing to do and lots of time to do it will always over react in almost any situation. I got pulled over on my way to a computer job and the small town cop called for backup who arrived and stood outside his car with his hand on his pistol butt while the first douche bag wrote me a ticket for 39 in a 25 across from a side-street golf course in the town next to mine.

    The “us and them” mentality of the cops does nothing in their favor. Basically, if he/she is talking to you, then you’re a criminal in their mind.

    It all stems from the lowering of standards to allow in blacks and others who were not able to pass the ‘racist/sexist’ written and physical test that was used to weed out those who shouldn’t have the job. Now, you’re welcome to it. Over-paid bullies with badges, most of them. Biggest gang around.

    I’m afraid you’re right. A friend who was doing a tour in an Air National Guard security police squadron told me of a unit member who was a policeman in his regular job, and that guy said that whenever he pulled someone over or stopped anyone for any reason, he was thinking of different ways to kill them. It would be unwise to give him the slightest justification.

    Apparently this attitude wasn’t limited to one individual.

    There may be good ones but don’t risk your life trying to distinguish between the good and the bad. Avoid them if at all possible.

    Folks, WTSHTF, we’re on our own.

    The average danger for cops is likely lowered by the many Mayberry RFD jurisdictions.

  40. Not it isn’t. You people can’t take the truth.

    Cop is a safe job in New York City. The stats prove it.

  41. @obwandiyag

    This article lists police officer as the 15th most dangerous job:

    So, yes, there are more dangerous jobs, but it’s an exaggeration to call it a “safe” job.

  42. Piglet says:

    Like many other things, the danger in any job is “location, location, location.” Being a policeman in my neighborhood wouldn’t be too dangerous because I live in a safe area. If this were duh hood, full of “vibrancy” (aka “infested,” “cursed,” etc.), it would be an entirely different story.

    I remember reading an article a few years ago that stated about two-thirds of police deaths were due to auto accidents. Those on patrol in cars expose themselves to more automobile mishaps than people who work in offices, etc. Being involved in a high speed chase can easily get you killed. Certainly orcs aren’t the only danger one may face.

    For anyone who thinks the job is safe, how would you like to be a cop in duh hood so you could confirm your belief?

  43. @Cloudbuster

    Note that the article cites stats dating back to 2012, ignoring:

    1.  The founding of anti-police incitement group Black Lives Matter around 2013.
    2.  The assassination of 2 NYC police officers by Blacktivist Ismaaiyl Brinsley in 2014.
    3.  The assassination of 5 Dallas police officers by Blacktivist Micah Xavier Johnson in 2016.

    The job of cop got a lot more dangerous in the last few years, but Ol’ Windy Bag will never admit it.  He cleaves to the tenets of Dinduism, and the dindu always dindu nuffin.

  44. @Jim in Jersey

    My experience, both with trucking and my own vehicle, if you are polite, provide the documents they ask for, no problems, even granting a break. I sure there are exceptions, sorry you’ve had negative experiences
