Interesting to see how many will commit crimes when they don't think they will be caught. We teach small children to do what's right even when no one is looking. It's tragic to see people burn down their own neighborhoods. Really, don't get me started on this.
Violent protest? Rioting?How much of it is fueled by everyone on all sides are dressed as if they are carrying out a bank robbery.
The Democratic Socialists of America (AOC's organization) is blaming the Jews for the murder of George Floyd.https://www.algemeiner.com/2020/05/28/outrage-after-far-left-pro-bds-group-blames-israel-for-us-police-violence/Biden recently appointed AOC as one of his campaign surrogates.

Right. Tear gas is some brand new concoction the IDF tests on 'palestinians'. These Democrat Socialists are ignoramuses. Imagine the intellectual level of their audience. Their leader must be Major Stupid. Their previous commander, General Knowledge, is MIA. I'd like a "progressive" Jew to explain how these Democrat Socialists aren't pushing antisemitism. It's getting harder and harder, isn't it? They are poised to push the antisemitic pedal to the metal.
Edward Smith: not surprising in the least. There's always an agenda with these thugs.
Jerusalem police shot and killed a "special needs autistic man," Riots are expected at the Al-Aqsa Mosque which reopens on Sunday, just in time, amazingly.https://www.timesofisrael.com/police-shoot-dead-unarmed-east-jerusalem-man-they-say-carried-suspicious-object/
"Ali Khamenei reacts to George Floyd protests, tweets 'Black Lives Matter'"A human, for his black skin, has no reassurance to live in society, if indeed, a police officer can beat him to death because of his colored skin," Khamenei said."https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/ali-khamenei-reacts-to-george-floyd-protests-tweets-black-lives-matter-629677Obviously, American blacks would be far better off living in humanitarian Iran (non-gay blacks that is.)
MLK would likely roll in his grave as the progeny of Ayers and friends seek to tear down America. Have the feeling this will backfire and allow good people to join against the poison that progressivism spews.Have the feeling that, fortunately, these partyers in the streets, who could care about Floyd, are less tough (though more visious and amoral) than those who took to the streets in the past, who at least had actual social justice in mind, even when the movement was violent.
Hope you are right Oldschool. Have seen these things since the 60's nothing ever changes. A lot of people figure peaceful protest changes nothing. That's nonsense of course when you look at how much better things are since the 50's 60's. The truth is that even if we were all one color and religion and wealth level, there would still be inequality and violence.
Meanwhile, America returns successfully to space. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

“We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region,” Frey tweeted Saturday.Asked if he was aware of reports that white supremacists had been involved in the looting, Walz said that based on his “suspicions and what I've seen on this, yes." He went on to raise the possibility that drug cartels were getting involved, too, according to NBC.https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-blames-antifa-riots-minnesota-officials-point-fingers-white-supremacists-dueling-claimsNot surprised to see this reaction, considering. How often is it parroted? Hope to see the evidence. What is obvious is the hate America-capitalism crowd that we see assembled, wreaking havoc for sport.
I didn't see many people who possibly be described as white supremacists walking out these stores with bounty tucked under the arms. These looters just couldn't have been locals, no, no, a thousand times no. Yeah sure, they ALL came from somewhere else.
Nifty new spacesuits.
Really? I thought the spacesuits were hilarious. My wife gets angry every time I mention it. To me, it looks like something from low budget '60's TV. Not manly enough IMO. Or maybe put some lifts on the boots, like the guys in ABBA. :0)I did enjoy liftoff though. Very cool. Crew Dragon. The amazing Mr. Musk.
Flash Gordan. Remember him?What a campy name.
I remember the moon landing as if it was yesterday. The school principal called the whole school to an unscheduled assembly. He sent us all home to watch it on TV. He asked those with TVs at home to leave their names and addresses if their families were prepared to take kids who did not.He asked as to reflect on the fact the whole thing was being filmed and broadcast as it happened and to contrast that with earlier momentous historical events such as Columbus sailing to the Americas or Da Gama circumnavigating the globe.
What about Magellan?Yes, the moon landing was just fantastic. We had riots then, too! But I was like 14 so who gives a shit. I was heavily into rockets at that age, as you can understand.
Yeah. Forgot about him. Probably because "Vasgo Pyjama" was a much cooler name.
One of the newspapers was running a competition on what would be the first words.My entry?"Hey! It really is made of cheese."
Was watching a new comedy series called Space Force. In it, they return to the Moon and the Capt is a black female. She has been advised to make up memorable first words for her first steps on the moon. She gets lots of advice (funny) and settles on "It's good to be back on the moon." When the time comes she slips up and says," It's good to be black on the moon." Funny.
"CNN's Van Jones on Friday accused all white people of being racist, saying, "Even the most liberal, well-intentioned white person has a virus in his or her brain that can be activated at an instant.""https://disrn.com/news/cnns-van-jones-even-the-most-well-intentioned-white-person-has-a-virus-in-his-or-her-brainHear that? It's useless. So why bother? That's where I'm at right now. I won't suddenly become racist because of it but I will expend no energy on any of it because, obviously, I am hopeless.
Jones shows he has the virus himself, and that it's not restricted to whites, but all humans are carriers. Perhaps he should (but won't) tend to his own sickness. That said, his guilt trip on liberals is quite effective and intimidating.
Even with the awful history of anti-black racism this is a bit much. A black man was elected president twice, and white people didn't riot for even one hour. The murder of 99.5 percent of black people in America has nothing whatsoever to do with the police at all. When this current imbroglio runs its course there will inevitably be figures calling for an honest conversation about race. There won't be one. There will be a conversation based on the narrative instead that's meant to deepen it. I can remember Alan Dershowitz talking about the absolute frothing at the mouth hatred from college students and activists he has received defending Israel. This is the power of the false narrative (brainwashing) and the power it has over people. They are taught and encouraged in insidious ways to become emotionally invested in the narrative. When someone comes along and tries to wake the woke from their dreamy slumber, then that person become "the enemy." That person is a threat to their deeply emotional psychological investment and subservience to a story which doesn't comport to reality. This is cognitive warfare. I originally wrote paragraphs more than you are seeing. I went over the 4,096 word limit allowed so I just deleted most of my original post. I am too exhausted to re-edit everything now. There. I've said too much, I haven't said enough. That's me in the corner. :0)
Jeff, if you have more to say, and would like to have it posted as an article, just send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post it under your name.
For this one, I already deleted. And I suppose I could write an article right here at IT. Mike invited me to do so many moons ago. I just never think I have the time. Maybe it's a discipline problem - I like writing stream of consciousness and then the subsequent embarrassment. But thank you for another alternative. Maybe I will take you up on it.
anytime man, just send to email and Ill cut and paste
LOL celebrities and political types are helping bail out protesters who some are claiming are white supremacists. Twitter guy Neontaster calls this narrative whiplash. LOLhttps://twitter.com/neontaster/status/1266785498611290112
If you think that's obnoxious, just wait for the next awards show on TV. I'm going to borrow from Van Jones himself and call it a "guilty liberal whitelash."Just wait for the COVID-19 spike from the protests and riots. Will it be reported on honestly?
Indirectly related to the breakdown of society is covid. Restrictions and coercive measures on the law abiding while others burn down police stations and loot Macys without much objection, even some praise.Greenfield and Thornton put it into a larger context, and it is as corrosive as the violence by the Weathermen inspired actors that push toward a totalitarian state.https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/06/emperors-new-mask-daniel-greenfield/https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/05/progressive-brights-are-pretty-dim-bruce-thornton/
blacks are 13% of the population of and 50% of the homocides. Of course cops are gonna be prejudiced.
agreed. I'm tired of America being a country where 13% of the population dictates the lives of the 87%. In South Africa that was apartheid, and here it's "Progress."
Ashish needs treatment for his dyslexia.
"The chairman of a House Oversight subcommittee on Tuesday demanded that the Secret Service provide an explanation of its role in using tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse protesters outside the White House to clear the way for President Trump to hold a photo op outside a damaged church. "This comes a day after Trump was forced into a bunker because of the freaking "protesters." Democrats....if they only had a brain.
The rioters held an arson op in the church which has welcomed every president since James Madison I am told. They also damaged war memorials. Looting and arson ops were also held in Los Angeles as Jewish business and Synagogues were attacked. Synagogues were spray paint with pro PLO slogans. A Jewish owned pharmacy was looted and all the narcotics were stolen - in an effort to fight systemic racism, of course.
But watch out, because here comes Keith Ellison. Minnesota's Governor, who, BTW, has done such a fantastic job of quelling the riots (not), has appointed the state's AG, Keith Ellison, one time defender of Louis Farrakhan, to prosecute the case against the cop(s) who killed George Floyd. The Dem clown car gets less and less funny. The Democrats: "Working on race relations for over 200 years!"I'm thinking that could be their official slogan. It's got that PLO/Ed Said type obscurantist ring to it.
Adults don't protest during pandemicsAdults know that protests in these situations ALWAYS lead to violence, rioting and looting.America (and others) need more adults.
From https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/06/yet-another-week-trump-failing-be-actual-authoritarian/612829/ :But as the week went on, the sense of crisis seemed to lift: The protests became more peaceful, and the troops and law enforcement in D.C. receded into the background. A lot of the credit for the shift has to go to the protesters themselves. In the first few days of the demonstrations, looting and violence were genuine problems in some cities. But soon protesters imposed order organically, remaining peaceful and working to stop those among them who were trying to provoke trouble.
Is there a silent majority that can hold off this attempt at anarchy where police are eliminated? Are Democrats in jeopardy of losing NY and CA and other places as they look the other way?What are the solutions the protestors, as compared to the rioters and looters, demand? The fact is that racism continues to decline in America. Antifa and BLM somehow rises, however, among the Millenial generation, largely indoctrinated to to believe these new fascist movements represent something good. They tell us how we screwed things up and they have a better way. If this is any example, the prospects are bleak. They will replace the Declaration of Independence with darkness. And once the Constitution is gone, the replacement will live by tyranny of the majority.
In a discussion with a progressive friend, George Soros came up. He's a right wing conspiracy according to the mainstream media. Some even say to criticize Soros is antisemitic. That's true, for antisemites, but Soros is an antisemite himself.Anyway, this comment in 2016 by Caroline Glick speaks to Soros. It could have been written today.https://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Our-World-Soross-campaign-of-global-chaos-464770The difference between now and the 60's is that only the latter is based on civil rights of the individual and belief in the Constitution and liberal values secured by the Bill of Rights. Now, these values are gone.Repressive tolerance has reached a fever pitch. The Cultural Revolution is upon us. Will ignorant liberals, swayed by manipulation and virtue signalling, come to their senses or before it is too late to repair?
Glick again hits it out of the park:https://www.israelhayom.com/2020/06/05/the-great-threat-to-america-and-to-american-jewry/The progressive Jew must pretend that antisemitism of progressives is not widespread. In fact, it is growing. What will they do when, foreseeably, they will be the targets and asked to choose, just like BLM is now doing to people based on woke dogma lacking scientific basis. Truth over facts.
Speak of the devil. Kudos to the Fox anchor for immediately speaking out.https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1269359115614093312
She is a keen observer. Our civilizations is in trouble. I think these people have had their way long enough. The lessons of WWII have been lost, not to mention the holocaust. Racism and police shootings of black people have been doing nothing but declining. You can cite the stats to the progressive crowd all day long, and you will not put the slightest dent in their noggins. Facts don't matter to the "science" crowd. Oh, did I mention that they're fascistic and racist? It is possible for people and even entire communities to believe something with all their heart and it not be true. There is a big hard push right now to scramble our brains with intersectionality, the mistaken belief that one's identity trumps facts. It's no more reliable than reading the bumps on people's heads or throwing "witches" in the lake to see if they float, i.e., a terrible organizing principle for a civilization and one that will sink it. Don't look now, but our mass media is embracing it. There is a whole generation which has now been brainwashed into believing this pathetic and dangerous nonsense. BDS wants to destroy Israel. The progressive left, wants to destroy the United States (little Satan, big Satan). It has been working to destabilize this country for at least a generation. All that hard work is now paying off by creating a public discourse that is their kind of stupid.
Yes, of course, advocating burning down the diamond district should tell every progressive Jew, and BTW they are a bunch of neurotic nitwits (a short conversation with one will convince you), how deeply antisemitic their friends are. "I'm as liberal as the next guy. The trouble is, the next guy is a progressive." -JeffwithaJ
Wokeism is Satanism. Trump is our only hope.
Many see it just the opposite way. I'd ask them why, but they now have the power to ruin people's live for such impertinence.
It's like the entire liberal establishment and its following have been replaced by the pods.
