From the NYT’s news section:

Two Crises Convulse a Nation: A Pandemic and Police Violence
Emotions were already raw over the toll of a pandemic that has killed more than 100,000 people across the country and cost millions of jobs.

29m ago

You might think the politicized pillaging going on at a high-end retailer near you might at least constitute a third crisis, but, sorry …

From the NYT’s opinion section:

The Nation’s Largest Police Force Is Treating Us as an Enemy
The N.Y.P.D. strikes back harshly at demonstrators in a weekend of protests.

3h ago

Also from the NYT’s opinion section:

Anti-Lockdown Rebels Don’t Get to Choose Their Own Constitution
Protesters in Michigan who sought to intimidate the governor and the Legislature with a show of arms aren’t just misreading the Second Amendment.

By Greg Weiner
Mr. Weiner is a political scientist and was a senior Senate aide to Bob Kerrey, Democrat of Nebraska.

    Wren,

    It sure looks like it. Floyd may have been caught passing the counterfeit $20 because he was out of work at the El Nuevo Rodeo Club. ENR was probably an intelligence front or asset.

    Chauvin worked there, too.

    Chauvin and Floyd knew each other - they both worked at ENR.

    Is it vaguely possible Chauvin deliberately killed Floyd to protect an ongoing federal intelligence operation involving counterfeit bills, one that Floyd was about to blow because of his own stupidity for passing fake $20’s?

    I don’t know, but if Chauvin was connected to an ongoing federal intel op at ENR, then that would explain the bizarre decision in 2006 by the Minneapolis DA’s office not to investigate Chauvin after a questionable shooting incident.

    Of course, the Minneapolis DA’s office at that time was headed by future Senator (and potential Biden VP), Amy Klobuchar.

    Did Amy Klobuchar move up the political ladder because she played ball with a federal intel agency in 2006?

    Again, I don’t know, but I guarantee the mainstream media (Steve’s “legacy media”) will never, ever ask the questions.

    They don’t want to know.

  3. As long as you can keep straight in your head, who are the designated Good Guys and who are the designated Bad Guys, you’ll never even be vaguely troubled by this sort of thing.

People willfully violating the social distancing orders during political protests? Or in some churches? I don’t know nothing about that. But occasionally you throw in a snide comment targeting the idiots who you hope are too stupid to understand and take offense.

    Filed under “I didn’t know that”: The lyrics to “Yellow Rose of Texas”:

    There’s a yellow girl in Texas
    That I’m going down to see
    No other darkies know her
    No darkey, only me
    :
    :
    [Chorus]
    She’s the sweetest girl of color
    That this darkey ever knew

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Yellow_Rose_of_Texas_(song)

    John McWhorter referred to one of his daughters as being “high yellow” in a recent BloggingHeads podcasts, and I looked that us and eventually ended up at the Yellow Rose of Texas page in Wikipedia.

    “The Yellow Rose of Texas”, which originally referred to Emily West Morgan, a “mulatto” indentured servant apocryphally associated with the Battle of San Jacinto.

    Re “high yellow”:

    High yellow … is a term used to describe a light-skinned person of white and black ancestry…. The term was in common use in the United States at the end of the 19th century and the early decades of the 20th century …. It is now considered offensive and outdated.

    Except that blacks can apparently use it under the “N-word” principle.

    “High” is usually considered a reference to a social class system in which skin color (and associated ancestries) is a major factor, placing those of lighter skin (with more European ancestry) at the top and those of darker skin at the bottom.

    Post-Civil War Washington D.C. social life was dominated by light-skinned ‘high yellow’ families, some pale enough to ‘pass for white,’ who shunned and despised darker African-Americans…. the colored woman used bleach lotions and Mrs. Walker’s “Anti-Kink” or the equivalent to straighten hair.

    Who was Mrs. Walker? A rich black entrepreneur, died 1919, who made her fortune from black women’s hair products that she developed and marketed.

    At the time of her death, she was considered the wealthiest African-American businesswoman and wealthiest self-made black woman in America

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madam_C._J._Walker

    [MORE]

    Walker later built a factory, hair salon, and beauty school to train her sales agents, and added a laboratory to help with research. Many of her company’s employees, including those in key management and staff positions, were women.

    To increase her company’s sales force, Walker trained other women to become “beauty culturists” using “The Walker System”, her method of grooming that was designed to promote hair growth and to condition the scalp through the use of her products. Walker’s system included a shampoo, a pomade stated to help hair grow, strenuous brushing, and applying iron combs to hair. This method claimed to make lackluster and brittle hair become soft and luxurious.

    By 1917, the company claimed to have trained nearly 20,000 women. Dressed in a characteristic uniform of white shirts and black skirts and carrying black satchels, they visited houses around the United States and in the Caribbean offering Walker’s hair pomade and other products packaged in tin containers carrying her image. Walker understood the power of advertising and brand awareness.

    In addition to training in sales and grooming, Walker showed other black women how to budget, build their own businesses, and encouraged them to become financially independent.

  10. The first writer, at least, has got it wrong. These Infotainment phases are to be run sequentially. The Pandemic Panic-Fest has about run its course. We talked about masks; we talked about wipes; we talked about washing hands. With all the back and forth on that, Americans are getting confused and sick of it all, and have been tuning out. That’s no good.

    We tried the racial thing with the Brunswick-2 Badwhites, but it didn’t stick so long. We really nailed it in Minneapolis, after a lot of hard work. This ought to give us 2 or 3 good months of solid reader- and viewership.

    Mission Accomplished, Bitchez!

    https://forward.com/opinion/447723/my-fellow-jews-get-in-the-fight/

    How can we use our influence and support to further the cause of justice? To answer this question, we must first reckon with the plight of the black community in America and the scale of the injustice and the grim statistics. Black Americans are three times more likely to be killed by police than White Americans. Over the past few years, more than 12 cases have received national attention. The criminal justice system and the “war on drugs” has disproportionately harmed black communities and has brought four decades of mass incarceration upon the nation. Black Americans make up only 13% of the U.S. population, yet they make up 33% of the nation’s prison population and are imprisoned five times the rate as white Americans.

    In 2018, more black Americans were uninsured compared to white Americans, 9.7% compared to 5.4% among whites and reported higher [rates of discrimination] (https://www.commonwealthfund.org/publications/newsletter-article/2018/sep/focus-reducing-racial-disparities-health-care-confronting%5D, when seeking medical care. Those same inequities and pre-existing conditions are also part of the reason the black community is disproportionately harmed by COVID-19. In 2016, the average income of white American households was $171,000, which is 10 times more than black American household’s income of $17,100.

    Here are some ideas for what the Jewish community can do to reduce racial inequality and systematic injustice:

    We can speak out against racism and killings of black citizens by police and others. The Jewish community has an important role to play with law enforcement, as we have built relationships with them in securing our own community. We can heal the divide between law enforcement and the black community. At the same time, we can hold law enforcement accountable for the necessary cultural and systemic change.

    We can recommit to building a just society by ending racism and racist policies and supporting equal opportunity for all people regardless of their race, religion or color of their skin. We must recognize that these disparities exist along racial lines and not pretend to be colorblind.

    We must build and strengthen trusted relationships. Jewish and black communities need to have a deeper understanding of each other’s histories, traumas, and hopes for the future. While the Jewish community is impacted by growing anti-Semitism, the black community is harmed by bigotry and racism. Our shared history in fighting in the Civil Rights era can inspire a new generation of joint activism against it. While this was more than 60 years ago, it can energize us and provide a blueprint on how we can collaborate on today’s challenges.

    We must also advocate on issues of priority to the black community. We can play an important role in finding a solution to mass incarceration and several disparities in or criminal justice system. Philanthropies should invest in Jewish advocacy and anti-discrimination work.

    We must nurture relationships with emerging leaders of both communities and prioritize the voices of Black Jewish leaders. We must acknowledge that there are Jewish people of all races and make sure that Jews of Color feel fully supported within the Jewish community. Black Jews may feel less welcome in spaces with increased police presence.

    That moron at Forward doesn't even know the difference between wealth and income.

    The fundamental problem is that liberals (Jewish or otherwise) are convinced that all disparities between whites and blacks are due to discrimination. It's basically a religious belief at this point. No amount of evidence can persuade these zealots.

    Speaking of liberal Jews, the following could be iSteve material. The ADL announced that it's supporting Harvard over Asians. Partly it's because the ADL is just a branch of the Democratic party at this point. But I suspect that part of it is that they don't think many of their kids can compete with Asians. Can't get much more hypocritical than that!

    In a civil democracy the police work for us to protect us from criminals. We are loyal to the police and they are loyal to us. When a question arises whether a policeman has himself committed a crime, we take a deep breath, ask all the right questions, listen to many sides of the case, and render as just and wise a judgement as we are able. We have formal procedures, courts, to make this possible. When the verdict comes down we accept it, whether with satisfaction or with reservation.

To answer this question, we must first reckon with the plight of the black community in America and the scale of the injustice and the grim statistics. Black Americans are three times more likely to be killed by police than White Americans. Over the past few years, more than 12 cases have received national attention. The criminal justice system and the “war on drugs” has disproportionately harmed black communities and has brought four decades of mass incarceration upon the nation. Black Americans make up only 13% of the U.S. population, yet they make up 33% of the nation’s prison population and are imprisoned five times the rate as white Americans.

    In 2018, more black Americans were uninsured compared to white Americans, 9.7% compared to 5.4% among whites and reported higher [rates of discrimination] [https://www.commonwealthfund.org/publications/newsletter-article/2018/sep/focus-reducing-racial-disparities-health-care-confronting], when seeking medical care. Those same inequities and pre-existing conditions are also part of the reason the black community is disproportionately harmed by COVID-19. In 2016, the average income of white American households was $171,000, which is 10 times more than black American household’s income of $17,100.

    Here are some ideas for what the Jewish community can do to reduce racial inequality and systematic injustice:

    We can speak out against racism and killings of black citizens by police and others. The Jewish community has an important role to play with law enforcement, as we have built relationships with them in securing our own community. We can heal the divide between law enforcement and the black community. At the same time, we can hold law enforcement accountable for the necessary cultural and systemic change.



    We can recommit to building a just society by ending racism and racist policies and supporting equal opportunity for all people regardless of their race, religion or color of their skin. We must recognize that these disparities exist along racial lines and not pretend to be colorblind.

    We must build and strengthen trusted relationships. Jewish and black communities need to have a deeper understanding of each other’s histories, traumas, and hopes for the future. While the Jewish community is impacted by growing anti-Semitism, the black community is harmed by bigotry and racism. Our shared history in fighting in the Civil Rights era can inspire a new generation of joint activism against it. While this was more than 60 years ago, it can energize us and provide a blueprint on how we can collaborate on today’s challenges.

    We must also advocate on issues of priority to the black community. We can play an important role in finding a solution to mass incarceration and several disparities in or criminal justice system. Philanthropies should invest in Jewish advocacy and anti-discrimination work.

    We must nurture relationships with emerging leaders of both communities and prioritize the voices of Black Jewish leaders. We must acknowledge that there are Jewish people of all races and make sure that Jews of Color feel fully supported within the Jewish community. Black Jews may feel less welcome in spaces with increased police presence.

    That moron at Forward doesn’t even know the difference between wealth and income.

    The fundamental problem is that liberals (Jewish or otherwise) are convinced that all disparities between whites and blacks are due to discrimination. It’s basically a religious belief at this point. No amount of evidence can persuade these zealots.

    Speaking of liberal Jews, the following could be iSteve material. The ADL announced that it’s supporting Harvard over Asians. Partly it’s because the ADL is just a branch of the Democratic party at this point. But I suspect that part of it is that they don’t think many of their kids can compete with Asians. Can’t get much more hypocritical than that!

  48. Emotions were already raw over the toll of a pandemic that has killed more than 100,000 people across the country and cost millions of jobs…

    …and not only allowed, but encouraged people to wear masks in public. A boon for rioters and looters.

  49. Did y’all catch that part where it’s claimed that the average White household income is ten times higher than the average Black household income? Uhh, yeah, I’m comfortable betting my entire $171,000 that that should read ‘accumulated household wealth’. I’m suddenly optimistic about the unemployment rate, as I can envision millions of Americans being put to work as editors for sloppy leftist hacks. Also, those numbers on the rates of the uninsured sound very fishy. Let’s assume they’re correct for argument’s sake. It would mean that while Whites have an insurance rate of 95%, Blacks are ‘only’ insured at a 90% rate. That’s like a guy being resentful of another guy with a 14 inch penis because he only has a measly 12 incher.. 14 inch… 12 inch… who cares, both guys would get hired to appear in a gangbang video alongside gonzo legend Floyd the Landlord.

    The minuscule number of men with such appendages would mostly be happy to have them shrunk down to more manageable size. At a certain point the organ is simply not usable for its designed purpose. Even slightly smaller ones limit it’s use only on women with cavernous passages.

    Excess length is manageable but excess thickness less so.

    There’s also the problems of accommodating the outsize member in daily life, it dropping in the toilet water, and such men usually losing potency earlier in life.

    There is definitely a “sweet spot” of being visually fairly impressive while still fitting any normal female passage, bigger than average but not insanely so. And smaller than average can be a real issue.

    This vid is instructive because it reveals some basic Antifa tactics. Not that different from muggers or pickpockets, really.

    The target or mark is engaged by multiple people who get him moving. When he falls another person darts in from the side, possibly from across the street, to kick him in the head. An action that arguably is attempted murder, but that doesn’t matter in Portland anymore. As soon as the second kick is delivered, the kicker runs right away.

    This “dart in, attack, run away” tactic is common. A group surrounds some Enemy of the People and seemingly out of nowhere a teenager or woman darts in with a can of bear spray, hitting the Enemy full in the face, then quickly retreats. Or an Enemy of the People is foolishly trying to reason with an Antifa man, and a smaller person darts in to grab a wallet / backpack / camera then run away.

    Blindsiding is popular – distract someone to the front, then hit them in the head from the side or back with a skateboard. See the vid from Dallas for an example, where a foolish man came out with a sword and got badly beaten, possibly killed. The skateboard wielder came in from the left side of the screen, dealt a blow and ran right off while others kicked him. This is pretty common.

    Situational awareness is critical in any place where Antifa are operating, and people would be well advised to walk in groups of at least two, so that 360 degree visuals can be maintained.

    These are not just random kids / young people, they have been recruited and given some street thug training. There are cult-like aspects to Antifa, which points to leaders and organizers that we don’t generally see. Perhaps they are visible in wider angle shots of street demos.

    OT: Conspiracy theory? Is this like the Boston Bomber case? The officer and Floyd both worked for an intelligence agency? WTH is going on here?

    Wren,

    It sure looks like it. Floyd may have been caught passing the counterfeit $20 because he was out of work at the El Nuevo Rodeo Club. ENR was probably an intelligence front or asset.

    Chauvin worked there, too.

    Chauvin and Floyd knew each other – they both worked at ENR.

    Is it vaguely possible Chauvin deliberately killed Floyd to protect an ongoing federal intelligence operation involving counterfeit bills, one that Floyd was about to blow because of his own stupidity for passing fake $20’s?

    I don’t know, but if Chauvin was connected to an ongoing federal intel op at ENR, then that would explain the bizarre decision in 2006 by the Minneapolis DA’s office not to investigate Chauvin after a questionable shooting incident.

    Of course, the Minneapolis DA’s office at that time was headed by future Senator (and potential Biden VP), Amy Klobuchar.

    Did Amy Klobuchar move up the political ladder because she played ball with a federal intel agency in 2006?

    Again, I don’t know, but I guarantee the mainstream media (Steve’s “legacy media”) will never, ever ask the questions.

    They don’t want to know.
