Disinformation in the 2020 Presidential Election: Latest Updates
The Truth About ‘The Truth About’ Memes

Sept. 24, 2020, 5:04 p.m. ET1 hour ago
By Kevin Roose

This week, protests erupted around the nation after a Louisville grand jury did not charge any police officers in the killing of Breonna Taylor. And on social media, false and exaggerated claims about Ms. Taylor began recirculating, using a years-old format that was popularized years ago by far-right YouTube personalities. …

This playbook is not new. Years ago, Stefan Molyneux, a right-wing podcaster and YouTube personality, got millions of views with a series of videos claiming to tell “the truth about” various prominent news stories, including the killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed Black man whose killing by police in Ferguson, Mo., set off the original Black Lives Matter protests.

Michael Brown was unarmed only because he didn’t quite manage to steal the policeman’s gun.

The “Truth About” format, which promised a kind of secret knowledge to viewers, was appealing to those who distrusted the mainstream media and wanted to hear an alternative explanation for police violence.

In other words, it appealed to bad people.

And it was ultimately mimicked by other right-wing influencers, including the far-right conspiracy theorist Paul Joseph Watson, whose videos include “The Truth About Black Lives Matter,” “The Truth About Oprah” and “The Truth About Modern Art.”

How dare somebody question Black Lives Matter, Oprah, or Modern Art.

Most “Truth About” treatments of police killings follow a standard format. In each case, an influencer calls into question the mainstream media’s framing of the episode, and barrages the audience with details about the victims’ pasts and the circumstances of their deaths in an attempt to prove that, while they may not have deserved to die, they were far from innocent. …

Like Mr. Molyneux’s videos half a decade ago, the “Truth About Breonna Taylor” content going viral on social media this week contains a mixture of truths, half-truths, exaggerations, red herrings and outright falsehoods. …

Mr. Tatum also claims that Ms. Taylor was “knee deep in criminal/drug dealing activities” with her ex-boyfriend. This claim is exaggerated at best. Ms. Taylor’s ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, was a convicted drug dealer and had been in and out of jail during the four years that they dated, but it’s unclear if Ms. Taylor was involved in his criminal activity. In 2016, she was interrogated alongside him by police officers after she rented a car, lent it to Mr. Glover and he in turn handed the keys to another suspected drug dealer, who was found dead in the car hours later.

Don’t you just hate when that happens to you? Who hasn’t rented a car that winds up with a dead body in the trunk? It’s so annoying when the cops ask a lot of impertinent questions about random corpses in your rent-a-car.

But police then concluded that Ms. Taylor had no foreknowledge of how the rental car would be used, and she had no criminal convictions of her own.

Also, Angela Davis was completely innocent when the shotgun she bought earlier in the week was used by her boyfriend’s 17-year-old brother to kidnap a judge and blow his head off. What? Are we supposed to not honor, respect, and pay lots of money to hear the speeches of Dr. Davis just because of a decapitated judge?

But the right-wing misinformation is more ambitious, in that it seeks to reframe the Black Lives Matter movement entirely, drawing attention away from police officers’ actions and onto the personal lives of Ms. Taylor and other victims of police shootings. In this, it is similar to Mr. Molyneux’s videos, which sought to justify the killings of unarmed Black men by painting them as criminals whose actions played a role in their own deaths.

They are Black, people! That means they have no responsibility for their crimes.

“This is a case that comes down to personal responsibility,” Ms. Owens said of Ms. Taylor’s killing, in a video posted Wednesday that got more than a million views on Facebook.

More white supremacists dogwhistling the r-word “responsibility” again.

    Like the way that NBC deliberately doctored the broadcast of George Zimmerman’s 911 call before Trayvon Martin assaulted him?

    It is even worse. Zimmerman called the neighborhood watch number as he was meant to do. The always truth telling media claimed it was a 911 call to racistally make the 100% White Hispanic Peruvian look worse. He was also walking back to his truck and away from young Martin Obama when Trayvon Hussein decided not to head home and away from Harvey Zimmerman but turned back to seek him out to initiate an attack. The court heard all the details and as in the rodney king case rejected the show trial result media wanted. #burnyourmalibuhomesinsupportof blacklives matter.

  4. Stefan Molyneux was purged from Twitter and YouTube where he made his entire living. Now his videos on bitchute get a fraction of the views and he’s pretty much irrelevant. The NYT bringing him up shows that they’re either rubbing it in (I’m sure they celebrated and had a role in his demise) or his videos still have tons of sway that the NYT hasn’t properly done damage control on, hence the article.

    His “Truth about…” videos were probably the best part of his channel. Not all were great and he loved to lean on mommy issues for historical figures but a few were essential views if you could sit there long enough. It’s worth watching the videos about Trayvon, Michael Brown, and Joseph McCarthy. Probably not much new information for the average iSteve commenter but it pushed me in the right direction, especially the McCarthy video.

    Have you noticed how overtly slanted "The News" has now become? Even rather minor stories are filled with editorial statements that no old-time newspaper editor would have allowed.

    As James Corbett says "The News is socially constructed". Outside of hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other natural disasters, traffic jams, and garden variety crimes like bank robberies, there is no "News"- there is only propaganda. There is such a thing as truth. But "The News" is not necessarily it. And it's not as if there was some halcyon past where 'The News' wasn't propaganda. There never has been.

  7. Ambitious right-wing misinformation leads Blacks astray, so that they have to be told off by their liberal superiors:

    CNN ‘pundit’ spins heads by unleashing RACIST slur against Kentucky AG over Breonna Taylor verdict, DELETES tweets after backlash

    Author and liberal journalist Sophia A. Nelson has set off a firestorm of accusations after calling black Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron multiple slurs, which she says she’s allowed to say because she’s mixed race.

    “Uncle Tom. Step & fetch, Negro. The end,” Nelson tweeted in reaction to Cameron’s announcement that a former cop involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor would not be facing murder charges, but rather three counts of “wanton endangerment.” It’s a decision that has set off violent protests in Louisville, Kentucky and several other major cities.

    Nelson, a frequent guest on CNN and writer for the Daily Beast, doubled down on the tweet on Thursday by reposting it to her followers.

  9. This isn’t about Taylor. It is about out of control cops who have been waging war upon the American people for decades. When these government thugs fired their weapons they were shooting at someone who was not armed and was not a threat. All three of them should be facing charges.

    No illegal items were found in Taylor’s apartment. One independent witness said the cops “announced”. All other witnesses said they didn’t. But that doesn’t matter. There was no reason to kick a door open in the middle of the night. If you kick a door open in the night, then you better expect to be shot, because that will be the reaction of any man. Only a criminal kicks open a door while the residents are sleeping. These cops should have knocked on the door before dark and then stood outside the door until it was opened. Anything else belongs in North Korea or Iran, not the United States of America.

    Steve, your comments about the body in the trunk were disgusting. Do you have any evidence Taylor knew what was going to happen? Did the cops arrest her? Did the cops have any evidence she had any knowledge about the murder?

    Cops are trained liars. Cops lie as a part of doing their jobs. Trusting the word of a cop about anything makes you a fool.

    So one of the cops shot himself, and then lied about it? That's your theory.

    Way back in the day I remember they interviewed an alternate juror who was dismissed from the O.J. trial for some reason. He said he had been inclined to vote for acquittal because "there was so much evidence against him" that it had to be a frame job.

    Cops aren't like this in Europe. They aren't like this in the vast majority of Canada either (maybe except Toronto?). Have you ever asked yourself if the reason why they have been trained to knock down the door in the middle of the night is because more often than not a 65 IQ violent mongrel is on the other side and will shoot through the door if they announce themselves politely? Why is it that some people can't understand that ultra violent 65 IQ thug criminals create a more violent police response and police culture? When your job goes from arresting the mischievous teens throwing toilet paper and the occasional domestic violence dispute to having to deal day in day out with inner city soulless dead-behind-the-eyes psycopathically violent black youths who will kill you without regret the second they get the chance, the job starts to only attract the personality types willing to do that, who tend to be more inclined to violence and less to mercy. It's a cycle. Cause and effect. No ultra violent negroes = no need for a militarized police and knocking down the door as if it were North Korea.

    I've got no use, no sympathy for criminals. Execute or exile them, be they street thugs or Supreme Court justices who wish to cast aside republican government and impose their political preferences.

    However, i will say it is ridiculous, arrogant and unacceptable that these cops--doing a late night drug raid!--did not have body cameras on (and for that matter were in plain clothes).

    The latest word seems to be that the cops did knock, and Ms. Taylor--most unwisely--was standing next to the guy shooting at the cops. The cops were simply poor shots--missing him completely and hitting her several times. But the entire interaction should have been available to the public. Actually put out there in all these incidents right away before the Soros-BLM-Democrat-media complex crafts their narrative.

    Body camera technology is dirt cheap now and allows both the police force and the public to check and critique police behavior and ensure the job is being done as the public wishes. The cops make a decent salary and have comfy public sector pensions. You want this job, which gives you license to interfere in the lives of citizens. Turn camera on and stand behind what you do. Period. End of story, no excuses.

    As a city cat from Chicago, I find it is almost impossible to explain to outsiders that there is sometimes some overlap with cops and perps, that the good guys and the bad guys can be the same guys.
    I saved my own life when police came through my back door at 1614 W. Waveland and held me at gunpoint. I kept my hands up and suggested that they pull my wallet out themselves and match it to some mail that was sitting on my table. I experienced many other roustings working all neighborhoods at all hours, and came to think of cops as a natural predatory part of the urban jungle. I was surprised when some lawyer friends told me that these were civil rights violations. I’m for law and order, but down in the city I always said “There are two sides to the law. Both wrong.”

    One independent witness said the cops “announced”. All other witnesses said they didn’t.
     
    No witnesses testified that the cops didn’t announce. Their testimony was that they didn’t hear an announcement; not surprising at nearly 1:00 am when most would have been in bed.

    An interesting sidelight: for months we were told that Ms. Taylor was a nurse. Now we find out that she aspired to become a nurse; she was actually a medical technician. Big difference. In many states nurses must be fingerprinted and pass a criminal background check. I wonder whether that might have been a factor that was holding her back.
  10. This kind of disinfo really works. My neighbor, a real SJW, told me the other day that if George Floyd had been white the officer who kneeled on his neck would have been arrested and prosecuted. “You can’t deny that!” she said.

    This is a variation on the Mainly Peaceful Protests theme we've been getting all summer, with 3,000 demonstrations happening but actual riots taking place "in only 220 locations," or whatever the official numbers were.

    In this case, we're told it is an outrageous lie to imply Ms. Taylor was knee-deep in crime, when a more nuanced examination of the matter would demonstrate conclusively that she was in no deeper than her ankles, or OK, maybe her mid-calves.

    My only quibble with your point is that it's not "sloppy" journalism as in "They were just too lazy to do the leg work and interview people, etc."

    It's deliberate, on occasion carefully crafted, propaganda. It's usually not terribly sophisticated, it certainly isn't in this particular piece of "journalism," but they actually work pretty hard to jam the square peg of their liberal Narrative into the round hole of reality.

    Will they? YouTube has been completely corporatized. Anything you search, the only things that will show up are videos from big, 'approved' mainstream channels. Gone are the days of the wild free for all. I can't even find 9/11 videos anymore that aren't from CNN, ABC etc.

    Reddit is also constantly becoming more and more censored. So is Twitter, where 'wrongthink' trends are suppressed. Same with Google search results. Try typing "Derbyshire's Talk", it's nothing but articles condemning it and no links to UNZ.

    People can't find alternatives if they're nowhere to be found. Everyone who found their way here or 4chan or Voat or wherever (not equating these but they're all on the naughty list) did so via one of the mainstream sites.

    Thug adjacent chick loves the thug. Get lots of thug. Then gets shot when thug shoots it out with cops. The end.

    No illegal items were found in Taylor's apartment. One independent witness said the cops "announced". All other witnesses said they didn't. But that doesn't matter. There was no reason to kick a door open in the middle of the night. If you kick a door open in the night, then you better expect to be shot, because that will be the reaction of any man. Only a criminal kicks open a door while the residents are sleeping. These cops should have knocked on the door before dark and then stood outside the door until it was opened. Anything else belongs in North Korea or Iran, not the United States of America.

    Steve, your comments about the body in the trunk were disgusting. Do you have any evidence Taylor knew what was going to happen? Did the cops arrest her? Did the cops have any evidence she had any knowledge about the murder?

    So one of the cops shot himself, and then lied about it? That’s your theory.

    Way back in the day I remember they interviewed an alternate juror who was dismissed from the O.J. trial for some reason. He said he had been inclined to vote for acquittal because “there was so much evidence against him” that it had to be a frame job.

    Ambitious right-wing misinformation leads Blacks astray, so that they have to be told off by their liberal superiors:

    CNN ‘pundit’ spins heads by unleashing RACIST slur against Kentucky AG over Breonna Taylor verdict, DELETES tweets after backlash

    Author and liberal journalist Sophia A. Nelson has set off a firestorm of accusations after calling black Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron multiple slurs, which she says she’s allowed to say because she’s mixed race.

    “Uncle Tom. Step & fetch, Negro. The end,” Nelson tweeted in reaction to Cameron’s announcement that a former cop involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor would not be facing murder charges, but rather three counts of “wanton endangerment.” It’s a decision that has set off violent protests in Louisville, Kentucky and several other major cities.

    Nelson, a frequent guest on CNN and writer for the Daily Beast, doubled down on the tweet on Thursday by reposting it to her followers.

    It’s deliberate, on occasion carefully crafted, propaganda. It’s usually not terribly sophisticated, it certainly isn’t in this particular piece of “journalism,” but they actually work pretty hard to jam the square peg of their liberal Narrative into the round hole of reality.

    Will they? YouTube has been completely corporatized. Anything you search, the only things that will show up are videos from big, ‘approved’ mainstream channels. Gone are the days of the wild free for all. I can’t even find 9/11 videos anymore that aren’t from CNN, ABC etc.

    Reddit is also constantly becoming more and more censored. So is Twitter, where ‘wrongthink’ trends are suppressed. Same with Google search results. Try typing “Derbyshire’s Talk”, it’s nothing but articles condemning it and no links to UNZ.

    People can’t find alternatives if they’re nowhere to be found. Everyone who found their way here or 4chan or Voat or wherever (not equating these but they’re all on the naughty list) did so via one of the mainstream sites. A renegade comment with a link here and there, a private message, a trip down the rabbit hole that went too deep. But if they cut off every connection, no one new will find their way to Wonderland.

    Without Evidence, Right-Wing Commentators Link Soros to U-Haul Rental

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/24/technology/without-evidence-right-wing-commentators-link-soros-to-u-haul-rental.html

    The title starts with “Without evidence,” but towards the end of the piece we see:

    … a woman identified by right-wing activists as the U-Haul’s renter works for a bail organization in Kentucky, which also employs someone who previously worked as a Soros Justice Fellow, a legal grant given out by Mr. Soros’s philanthropic organization, Open Society Foundations.

    But there is no indication of Mr. Soros’s involvement in the Louisville protests, and the claim is implausible even on its face.

    This is evidence. It may be weak, but it’s evidence.

    The guy really, really wants to accuse people of anti-semitism, but he stops at accusing them of “hidden hand” delusions, a dog whistle.

    But my main objection to the piece is that his lede is a minor side show. The real news here is that a U-Haul full of protest signs quickly materialized at the scene after the grand jury result was announced. Who rented that? Isn’t it an indication that there is some prepping involved by some of the protesters? Who made and paid for the signs? Is that too tough of an investigative story for the Times to handle?

    So he trivialized the U-Haul not by ignoring it or putting somewhere in the back third like most NYT pieces. Rather, he shouts it loud up front as though there is nothing unusual about it and immediately dives into his unburied lede about Soros and crypto-anti-semites. It’s a “throw it against the wall hard enough that it sticks … and then falls off the wall” tactic.

    I want to read more of Roose’s stuff. I’m beginning to suspect he might be an unwoke sleeper agent. Or else he’s an innovative propaganda genius who has discovered important new mind control techniques.

    In this case, we’re told it is an outrageous lie to imply Ms. Taylor was knee-deep in crime, when a more nuanced examination of the matter would demonstrate conclusively that she was in no deeper than her ankles, or OK, maybe her mid-calves.

    Cops aren’t like this in Europe. They aren’t like this in the vast majority of Canada either (maybe except Toronto?). Have you ever asked yourself if the reason why they have been trained to knock down the door in the middle of the night is because more often than not a 65 IQ violent mongrel is on the other side and will shoot through the door if they announce themselves politely? Why is it that some people can’t understand that ultra violent 65 IQ thug criminals create a more violent police response and police culture? When your job goes from arresting the mischievous teens throwing toilet paper and the occasional domestic violence dispute to having to deal day in day out with inner city soulless dead-behind-the-eyes psycopathically violent black youths who will kill you without regret the second they get the chance, the job starts to only attract the personality types willing to do that, who tend to be more inclined to violence and less to mercy. It’s a cycle. Cause and effect. No ultra violent negroes = no need for a militarized police and knocking down the door as if it were North Korea.

  37. I wonder what the key to understanding someone like Kevin Roose is. Fragments of his life that I have gleaned: He grew up in a small liberal university town in Ohio. His family were nominally Quakers but their religion seems to have been more about liberal politics. He encountered rich people when he went to university and it was a shock but he learned to fit in. At 19 he somehow got a grant to attend evangelical “Liberty University” undercover, and was later hired by the New York Times to cover Wall Street. The Times reported his marriage to a Jewish lawyer from the Bay Area. He covered all kinds of tech stories, but his current specialty seems to be, investigating the mechanisms of thoughtcrime on the Internet. He wrote the non-story “Making of a Youtube Radical” which came out just in time to justify one of Youtube’s major purges. That story featured one Caleb Cain, and you can see the two of them appearing together in a PBS interview (I haven’t sat through it, but Cain is introduced with the caption “Radicalized by Alt-Right Videos”).

    I guess the reason he interests me, is that what he’s doing, so epitomizes the transformation of journalists into propagandists – and I wonder about his psychology. He’s tracking these “Truth About” responses to mass media stories, but is curiously unmoved by what is actually said in them. It makes me think that, e.g. in China there must be censors who specialize in tracking various forms of forbidden narrative, who face a similar challenge – they must become expert in the logic of the dissidents, without actually acknowledging any truth in what they say. It seems that Roose learned a similar doublethink early, during his infiltration of Liberty University. One wonders, did he just spontaneously have an aptitude for it, or was he encouraged in this direction by a mentor? It would be interesting to know who funded that first book of his.

Lanchester's equations (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lanchester%27s_laws ) say that the three had 9x the combat power of the one, and, as they had armor, their target area was smaller. Surprise and the police need to go through a "fatal funnel" didn't offset the raider's advantage in firepower but apparently the police picked the wrong target to shoot at and hit Breonna Taylor.
    Also, just as a guess, at least one of the police emptied his magazine, hence the "reckless endangerment" charge against one of the police.

    Hard to say what lessons can be drawn from this. Maybe that even "knock" raids are hazardous if run a zero dark thirty?

    It has been obvious for years that armed police raids without establishing communication before entering a domestic area were hazardous to all concerned, including the raiders, and would eventually draw an armed response from the general public. I suspect that this is just the first incident of a growing number. There was a reason for having to present a warrant before entering a dwelling, and we can see the reason here.
    I should add that the practice of "home invasion" contributes to the hazard of police raids to all concerned.

    Just one more part of the general deterioration, I guess. The government's money is gone, the money won't come back, and you ain't seen nothing yet.

    His "Truth about..." videos were probably the best part of his channel. Not all were great and he loved to lean on mommy issues for historical figures but a few were essential views if you could sit there long enough. It's worth watching the videos about Trayvon, Michael Brown, and Joseph McCarthy.

    Have you noticed how overtly slanted “The News” has now become? Even rather minor stories are filled with editorial statements that no old-time newspaper editor would have allowed.

    As James Corbett says “The News is socially constructed”. Outside of hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other natural disasters, traffic jams, and garden variety crimes like bank robberies, there is no “News”- there is only propaganda. There is such a thing as truth. But “The News” is not necessarily it. And it’s not as if there was some halcyon past where ‘The News’ wasn’t propaganda. There never has been.

  52. They call “the Truth About…” a meme in the headline. It’s not a meme, far as I’m aware. Then they call it a format further down. Which is it: a meme or a format?

    What the NYT is getting at is that it’s “clickbait.” But is it? I don’t watch these videos often, but when I’ve seen similar ones, either they make an effort to present some previously unknown thing they at least think is true, or they don’t. When they don’t, I’m fairly certain it’s not overwhelmingly from a right-wing source.

    In any case, NYT is in no position to call out misleading titles.

    No illegal items were found in Taylor's apartment. One independent witness said the cops "announced". All other witnesses said they didn't. But that doesn't matter. There was no reason to kick a door open in the middle of the night. If you kick a door open in the night, then you better expect to be shot, because that will be the reaction of any man.

Anything else belongs in North Korea or Iran, not the United States of America.

    Body worn cameras are not always the perfect way to keep them honest. I've had cases where they have refused to turn them on in the first place. I've had cases where they are allowed to review the video before drafting a police report to fit their dishonest narrative. I've had cases where they chop up the video to exclude the beatings of innocents. I've had cases where the video was never booked into evidence or otherwise disclosed until the day before trial.

  65. Ms. Taylor’s problem – as with many black victims of shootings – is not that she herself was a criminal but that people in her life that she spent lots of time with were, and you eventually become collateral damage. The media goes out of its way not to highlight the poor life choices/associations behind a lot of the misfortune that befalls somewhat sympathetic black characters but it’s not hard to see if you pay a bit of attention. A very high percentage of black women have dads/brothers/boyfriends who engage in criminal activity and everyone knows the saying about the company you keep.

    Alana Samuels at The Atlantic is my favorite on this – she wrote a bunch of stories about the oppression of this or that policy and would center her story around some black woman who it later turns out in the piece didn’t finish high school and has 6 kids and no man in the house. Even the attempted sainting of various blacks killed at the hands of police as far a I know has yet to turn one up who cannot be connected to criminal activity directly or one step removed like Taylor.

    In this case, we're told it is an outrageous lie to imply Ms. Taylor was knee-deep in crime, when a more nuanced examination of the matter would demonstrate conclusively that she was in no deeper than her ankles, or OK, maybe her mid-calves.

    Without Evidence, Right-Wing Commentators Link Soros to U-Haul Rental

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/24/technology/without-evidence-right-wing-commentators-link-soros-to-u-haul-rental.html

    The title starts with "Without evidence," but towards the end of the piece we see:

    ... a woman identified by right-wing activists as the U-Haul’s renter works for a bail organization in Kentucky, which also employs someone who previously worked as a Soros Justice Fellow, a legal grant given out by Mr. Soros’s philanthropic organization, Open Society Foundations.

    But there is no indication of Mr. Soros’s involvement in the Louisville protests, and the claim is implausible even on its face.
     
    This is evidence. It may be weak, but it's evidence.

    The guy really, really wants to accuse people of anti-semitism, but he stops at accusing them of "hidden hand" delusions, a dog whistle.

    But my main objection to the piece is that his lede is a minor side show. The real news here is that a U-Haul full of protest signs quickly materialized at the scene after the grand jury result was announced. Who rented that? Isn't it an indication that there is some prepping involved by some of the protesters? Who made and paid for the signs? Is that too tough of an investigative story for the Times to handle?

    So he trivialized the U-Haul not by ignoring it or putting somewhere in the back third like most NYT pieces. Rather, he shouts it loud up front as though there is nothing unusual about it and immediately dives into his unburied lede about Soros and crypto-anti-semites. It's a "throw it against the wall hard enough that it sticks ... and then falls off the wall" tactic.

    I want to read more of Roose's stuff. I'm beginning to suspect he might be an unwoke sleeper agent. Or else he's an innovative propaganda genius who has discovered important new mind control techniques.

    It is even worse. Zimmerman called the neighborhood watch number as he was meant to do. The always truth telling media claimed it was a 911 call to racistally make the 100% White Hispanic Peruvian look worse. He was also walking back to his truck and away from young Martin Obama when Trayvon Hussein decided not to head home and away from Harvey Zimmerman but turned back to seek him out to initiate an attack. The court heard all the details and as in the rodney king case rejected the show trial result media wanted. #burnyourmalibuhomesinsupportof blacklives matter.

  75. I’ve enjoyed Stefan Molyneux’s videos, but I’ve sometimes thought his “Truth About….” series could’ve been more appropriately titled “Some Other Important Things to Consider About….” (or something like that.) Now and then, he could draw slightly simplistic conclusions about that which he was discussing, yet many of the points he would bring up were often very salient and insightful (but usually not included in the standard media/historical narrative for the sake of political correctness.) I found his segments more illuminating than encapsulating. I still try to follow him on Bitchute.

    Try to watch this clip where MSNBC contributor and Professor Jason Johnson proclaims that the police may shoot him in his home on live television during his interview with MSNBC! Dr. Johnson points out that the violence and rioting in Louisville is not BLM, but Trump supporting White Supremacists!!!

    This is an outrageous lie and blood libel. Notice the Intellectual has a Marvel Black Panther figurine on the shelf behind him.

    Well in theory the Justice Department is supposed to be independent. But in practice that's difficult when the President has the power to appoint and to fire any Attorney General, FBI director, etc. It seems bizarre that Congress doesn't have to approve the firing of any official that requires their consent to get the job in the first place. Comey is a slimebag but he had to be approved by Congress so why did Trump just get to fire him on a whim? Plus, since there's always an "acting" official in all of these positions, should the officially appointed and confirmed official be fired or die, and this "acting" official can also be fired at whim by the President, it's not clear what meaningful role Congress plays at all besides theoretically being able to remove the president from office for allegedly interfering too much with the DOJ.

    This isn't about Taylor. It is about out of control cops who have been waging war upon the American people for decades. When these government thugs fired their weapons they were shooting at someone who was not armed and was not a threat. All three of them should be facing charges.

    No illegal items were found in Taylor's apartment. One independent witness said the cops "announced". All other witnesses said they didn't. But that doesn't matter. There was no reason to kick a door open in the middle of the night. If you kick a door open in the night, then you better expect to be shot, because that will be the reaction of any man. Only a criminal kicks open a door while the residents are sleeping. These cops should have knocked on the door before dark and then stood outside the door until it was opened. Anything else belongs in North Korea or Iran, not the United States of America.

    Steve, your comments about the body in the trunk were disgusting. Do you have any evidence Taylor knew what was going to happen? Did the cops arrest her? Did the cops have any evidence she had any knowledge about the murder?

    Cops are trained liars. Cops lie as a part of doing their jobs. Trusting the word of a cop about anything makes you a fool.

    One independent witness said the cops “announced”. All other witnesses said they didn’t.

    No witnesses testified that the cops didn’t announce. Their testimony was that they didn’t hear an announcement; not surprising at nearly 1:00 am when most would have been in bed.

    An interesting sidelight: for months we were told that Ms. Taylor was a nurse. Now we find out that she aspired to become a nurse; she was actually a medical technician. Big difference. In many states nurses must be fingerprinted and pass a criminal background check. I wonder whether that might have been a factor that was holding her back.

    Breonna Taylor is the first and only black victim of the cops EVER, that I recall, who actually had a job. It's not her fault she dated ands was sleeping with a drug dealer. Becky and Kim Kardashian and other white sluts have aggressively and successfully cornered the market on black males with jobs/money, leaving Breonna a dating pool of active criminals. So because racism. And white bitches. QED

    Yes, it’s simply because of the color of their skin. Same thing as being kicked out of 109 countries, all for no reason other than irrational hatred based on stereotypes.

    Remove the crime rate and welfare state and the usury and the feminism and imagine what would’ve been.

  83. It looks like the body of Fernandez Bowman was not actually found in the trunk of Breonna Taylor’s car but in the driver’s seat. He was apparently killed while driving it, after it had been lent to him by her bf, Jamarcus Glover.

    “Police say Bowman had been shot in his car while he was driving. The car came to rest after hitting a telephone pole, a fence and a home. ”

    See: https://www.wdrb.com/news/crime-reports/police-arrest-man-accused-of-murdering-victim-in-car-in/article_ba4952b9-fc2c-590b-a219-cfd149dd6fbb.html

    and

    “An August 2020 feature on Taylor’s life in The New York Times explained that Taylor began dating Glover in 2016. In December of that year, Glover asked her to rent a car for him to use. That month, a man named Fernandez Bowman aka Rambo, was found dead inside of the car. He had been shot eight times. Glover told investigators that he gave Bowman the keys because Bowman needed to “run an errand.” Also found in the car were three baggies of an illegal substance. WLKY reported in 2017 that the baggies contained marijuana, pills, meth and heroin as well as a 9mm gun.”

  84. If a life is worth $400,000 (a typical number used by USEPA in evaluating the benefits of its proposed regulations), then I think alternatives to no-knock raids should be considered. The situation is similar to hostage negotiations. You telephone the subject or bullhorn him/her, and you negotiate a surrender. This no doubt would have saved Breonna Taylor’s life, worth ca. $396,000, and in such circumstances can save police lives too, worth ca. $307,500.55.

  88. BTW, the negro “found dead” in her rental car, Fernandez Bowman-street name “Rambo”- had good reason to be dead–he had been shot eight times.

  89. Funny how the MSM Narrative never mentions the very recent Tuttle murders in Houston by two black (Black!) narcotics police detectives. Just a bit over a year ago.

    This is just one of the links you’ll find (also on Wikipedia) https://abcnews.go.com/US/houston-cop-charged-murder-botched-drug-raid-suspected/story?id=69255130

    The two black narc cops lied about drugs in their warrant. Both now fired and facing murder charges. Tuttles, asleep at home at night (no knock warrant) both white (White!).

    There still has been no disclosure of what the actual motive for this murder was. Racism? Looks like it. No heroin found (specified as bought there by still unknown -i.e. fake – informant).

    There was a small commie group protest at the police station, got some local publicity. Not advertised so no one but them knew about it. Amazingly, no BLM protests, antifa riots, whites burning and looting downtown Houston, attacking cops. No media other than local.

    Later, the Houston Hearst Pravda rag did a series about how worthless these veteran narcs were in actually stopping drugs. All their prior convictions now on appeal due to misconduct.

    Yet still no riots. “No Justice, No Peace!” only applies when white cops (White!) kill blacks (Blacks!). Tuttles shot back (no announcement of who invaders were during raid) but two cops seriously wounded by other cops shooting wildly. Were it not for that, probably would have been hushed up.

    Of course, White Lives Don’t Matter. So Silence = Death. Make sure your kids get the Talk, uncensored.

    Turns out the warrant authorized no-knock, but the police knocked anyway (https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/local/breonna-taylor/2020/09/23/minute-by-minute-timeline-breonna-taylor-shooting/3467112001/ ). Didn’t help. The boyfriend took a shooter’s stance and tried for a first shot victory over the three raiders, whom he may or may not have known were police. His first shot hit one of the three, but he still lost– one pistol against three armored opponents. Lanchester’s equations (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lanchester%27s_laws ) say that the three had 9x the combat power of the one, and, as they had armor, their target area was smaller. Surprise and the police need to go through a “fatal funnel” didn’t offset the raider’s advantage in firepower but apparently the police picked the wrong target to shoot at and hit Breonna Taylor.
    Also, just as a guess, at least one of the police emptied his magazine, hence the “reckless endangerment” charge against one of the police.

    Hard to say what lessons can be drawn from this. Maybe that even “knock” raids are hazardous if run a zero dark thirty?

    It has been obvious for years that armed police raids without establishing communication before entering a domestic area were hazardous to all concerned, including the raiders, and would eventually draw an armed response from the general public. I suspect that this is just the first incident of a growing number. There was a reason for having to present a warrant before entering a dwelling, and we can see the reason here.
    I should add that the practice of “home invasion” contributes to the hazard of police raids to all concerned.

    Just one more part of the general deterioration, I guess. The government’s money is gone, the money won’t come back, and you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    The made a mistake doing the raid at 12 am when a home invasion would seem a realistic outcome at that time and lighting was dim. The cops busted a pedophile at work by doing the warrant on his place during the day when he wasn't home and finding some pictures he shouldn't have had. They could have done this while she was at work and if they found crack, picked her up minimizing the possibility of conflict. Of course the real anger in the black community can't be expressed: "how dare these white folks snoop around in some brother's crack business. That ain't none of them white folk's darn business." The true anger behind all of this stuff is white society forcing it's norms on the 'hood.

  94. Taylor was suspected of running the supply house for 3 nearby drug houses (known in the past as crack houses):

    On Jan. 2, a pole camera installed at South 24th Street and Elliott Avenue captured footage of a white Chevrolet Impala registered to Taylor pull up in front of 2424 Elliott Ave. The camera footage showed Glover exiting from the passenger side.

    A red Dodge Charger that police say was used by both Glover and Adrian Walker, a co-defendant, made “frequent trips” between Elliott Avenue and Springfield Drive, where Taylor lived, according to “physical and electronic surveillance,” Jaynes wrote.

    On Jan. 16, Glover was photographed by police entering Taylor’s apartment and left with a “suspected USPS package.” He then drove to 2605 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd., which Jaynes described in the search warrant affidavit as a “known drug house.”

    She lived in a part of town that had a lot of drug activity, hadn’t worked in 2 years, they picked up some jailhouse chatter naming her, had a man discovered murdered in her rented car, had attracted attention from her neighbors.

    There was ample reason to obtain a search warrant.

    The police knocked 3 times, announced they were police. Instead of hiding somewhere, she stood with her pistol-packing thug bf.

    This is an arranged story of a pack of lies.

  95. Well Blacks may not be heroes as much in less liberal areas. Recently in Orange County a homeless black guy was shoot by the deputy sheriff and only 80 people protest. Years ago when a white homeless dude was beaten by the cops in Fullerton 200 people protest the decision that let the cops off. One of the cops in the white homeless case in OC years ago was Latino.

  96. The Breona Taylor case is a shinning example of the saying “If you lie with dogs don’t be surprised if you get fleas” or “If you hang around with chickens, you’ll never soar with the eagles.” People of good character also don’t date drug dealers. The fact she had an affirmative action job that seemingly made here seem respectable brings into question just how many of these middle class blacks really are “the nice ones” and how extensive the thug lifestyle permeates the black community?
