  2. News about the POC Brooklyn lawyer bombers. From the WSJ: “Magistrate Judge Steven M. Gold set a $250,000 bond with home detention for Ms. Rahman and Mr. Mattis, neither of whom have prior criminal records. Each bond will be insured by several family members, friends and colleagues of both Ms. Rahman and Mr. Mattis.

    “One night of behavior is not a basis on which to reject someone’s ability to make rational decisions,” Judge Gold said Monday, ruling that their families’ financial well-being should be an adequate deterrent.”

    So one night with a DUI or pissing into a bush is enough to screw the life of a white dude, but throwing firebombs should not be held against highly-educated PoCs?

    OK, the Story is police violence.

    The Reality is black violence and anarcho-terror.

    Solution. Prog cities disband all police. Libs must stop relying on police for protection since blacks are angels.

    From what we see on the news, big cities seem to have mostly implemented your solution already.

  5. The wizard of Poz.

  6. Many, maybe even most, of these protests remain nonviolent, it should be noted. They operate on a philosophy pioneered by Mahatma Gandhi and adopted by Martin Luther King Jr. in the US: peacefully and publicly register one’s discontent with injustices and allow the response of the state, usually militant and sometimes violent, to speak for itself.

    Mendacious newspeak.

  7. I am so glad that Twitter is monitoring for violence and calls for criminality. Remember when the racist frog meme was banned?

    The theme song from The Purge.

    You know, perhaps promoting an utterly nihilistic pop culture, at times an openly satanic one, where the only values are narcissism and materialism was a bad idea. Educating the youth to despise the white majority and to see all American history prior to the election of President Obama as essentially evil might have some negative consequences. Just a thought.

    Radio stations and TV channels have changed their programmes to mark “Blackout Tuesday”, reflecting on George Floyd’s death in police custody.

    BBC Radio 1Xtra is hosting a series of discussions and debates in support of the black community, with song choices that reflect black pride and identity.

    Many record labels and music stars have gone quiet to observe the initiative.

    MTV will go silent for eight minutes – the length of time a white police officer knelt on Mr Floyd’s neck.

    The gesture will be replicated on other channels including VH1 and Comedy Central, while 4 Music will pause its output once an hour throughout the day.

    There will also be moments of reflection on BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2, while commercial radio stations including Kiss, Magic and Absolute Radio are observing a social media blackout “to show that racism of any kind cannot be tolerated”.

    ITV daytime show This Morning briefly went dark, showing a black screen with the words “Black Lives Matter”.

    There was MTV, which was great in the 1980s, then VH-1, as MTV went all ghetto, then VH-1 hasn't been heard from since I last watched cable TV 20 years back. Once in a while, Martha Quinn will appear in a dream of mine ... she doesn't look any older ... from that angle...

  20. The current riots may eventually end, but the murder rate by blacks of other blacks and other races will remain extreme.

  21. Anon[115] • Disclaimer says:

    There is no outsized police violence when interacting with any one race, per number of interactions had.

    The crime rate determines the number of interactions.

    This is only a story insomuch as the press give the illusion that a single event is extraordinary.

    Criminals are violent. Police interacting with them are violent. The response isn’t the problem.

    The press is the problem, and the single reason for these riots.

    I think that US clandestine services became US the press some time ago and never let go.

    It follows that this is likely top-down political and social manipulation of the US populace.

  22. I wonder if these guys will continue to buy the media’s narrative:

  24. This chick got cancelled (literally, as in she got fired from her sponsorship) for tweeting in favor of Floyd protests and BLM. Why? Because some black chick she used to work with years ago didn’t like her.

    On Monday, Ware, who appeared on “Glee” with the 33-year-old singer-actress during Season 6, blasted Michele for making her life a “living hell” while they worked together after Michele tweeted her support for George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.

    “LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET,” Ware, 28, tweeted in response. “I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF TOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD ‘S–T IN MY WIG!’ AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD…”

    “HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind. We are disheartened and disappointed to learn of the recent claims concerning Lea Michele,” the company tweeted. “We take this very seriously, and have terminated our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately.”

    The funny thing is that Lea wasn’t even accused of racism. The black chick just doesn’t like her. https://pagesix.com/2020/06/02/hellofresh-cuts-ties-with-lea-michele-after-racism-accusations/

    Being “Pampered Pets” is no longer good enough. They need to see you ruined.

  26. The funny thing is that it is the Left that has by far the most to lose in all of this. They are basically protesting against themselves. Minneapolis has a Democratic (DFL) governor, a black Muslim Democratic Attorney General, a Democratic mayor, and 13 of its 13 city council members are Democrats or Green Party. If people have a problem with how Minneapolis cops treat suspects then they maybe need to take it up with their fellow Democrats in state or local office.

    If the police are not allowed to do their jobs then the cities will return to the hellhole status they had in the 70s and their newly regained status as the center of fun and culture will be lost again, and a whole lot of liberals (and blacks) will move back out to the suburbs. Most of the people whose lives will be severely disrupted (or taken) are Democrats.

    I suspect that won’t happen, because the Left regards the cities as too important to give up. So they will let the rioters blow off steam and pretend they are listening. And the rioters will pretend their complaints aren’t really about just wanting to get away with whatever the hell they want. And we will do all this again in another four years or so (or in five months, if Trump wins reelection).
