      Congrats okay on #1 🙂

      Thanks Nerdy for front-paging our President’s tweets. As our President tweets, so does the world read and heed.

      The gods work in interesting ways.

      It’s horrible that it comes at such painful and extreme cost, but these ugly racial episodes have put the spotlight where it needs to be and when.

      How much longer would the cesspool that was the Ferguson Police Department have operated in terrorizing the black citizens of that community if not for the exposure brought about by Mike Brown’s murder?

      When the murders of Tamir Rice and Eric Garner, among a number of others, were being held up as examples of pervasive police brutality against boys and men of color, the luck of a witness in the right place at the right time caught the murdering cop who tried to frame Walter Scott after shooting him in the back, making denial and defense impossible.

      When the McKinney thug cop was exposed by having his words and actions recorded and subsequently resigned, it brought an ‘educator’s racism out for all to see – now she’s no longer there to inflict her prejudice on students whose race she hates and fears.

      And now, hard as his fellow confederates and the sympathetic MSM might try to negate, a racist terrorist has given us a written manifesto of the foundation of his twisted views (sounding very familiar to the McKinney teacher) and murderous intent, making denial of what he’s done look crazy, and finally causing the groundswell that may get the Confederate flag removed from the SC statehouse. As a bonus, the Conservative Citizens Council was called out as a catalyst, and the GOP is twisting and turning itself in knots as it tries to pander to the racist foundation of the party.

      Would that these episodes come to an abrupt end. But short of that, the consequences have been much needed and far too long coming.

      It is fair to say that most white people had been so acculturated to view black people as different from them that they did not perceive the existence of slavery in America as a problem, and when exposed to slaves, they barely noticed the pain that they experienced. These whites compartmentalized their lives and experiences, putting themselves and other whites into one sphere and enslaved people or even free black people into another. It did not even occur to them that emotions experienced in the white sphere could also be experienced by the enslaved people.

        Having segregation and slavery enshrine into law…even the so-called founding fathers either had slaves or gave into slavery to get an agreement done….so this debasement of people of color is interwoven into the very fabric of America…this is why these issues continue..because the GOP… RW entertainment complex and their ilk could not stoke these flames if it was not there in the beginning…

        a racist legacy passed down from father to son …from mother to dauughter..

        Lots and lots of folks have been telling her all kinds of things since her original tweet … I could then start to just sit back and watch. She exposed herself, but nothing will change in her heart. She’ll just get older.

      ” This is an issue for the people of SC, not outsiders.”

      The old fallback. Used for slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, lynching, the Civil Rights Movement and anytime someone brings up taking the flag down. We’ll get around to it but we don’t take kindly to abolitionists, carpetbaggers, commies and the typical outside agitator telling us what to do.

      I’m surprised she didn’t blame Thaddeus Stevens.

        The only good part is that she put herself out there and people are stepping on her. Like a cockroach when you turn on the light.

    Black conservatives Horace Cooper( I call him Uncle Tom) says Obama could have shown leadership and united us on this South Carolina shooting. They just have to fine some way to blame Obama for something.

    After the Discovery of Dylann Roof’s Website, the Council of Conservative Citizens Is Running Scared.

    Following the exposure of Roof’s “manifesto” (and “manifesto” is too grandiose a term for what’s really just a racist rant), the Council of Conservative Citizens apparently took down their entire website; if you go to topconservativenews.com or conservative-headlines.com (the deceptively innocuous-sounding names for their hate site) you see nothing but a blank white screen at the moment. But Google’s cache still has a copy of their post trying to distance themselves from Dylann Roof — with hundreds of evil, racist comments.

    And now we’ve learned (via @MelioraMed) that one of the CCC’s main spokesmen on Twitter, Kyle Rogers (@kylerogers76), an overt racist with nearly 40,000 followers, has also deleted his Twitter account. If you click that link to his username you’ll see: “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”

    Excellent, the roaches are running back to their filthy gutters. Just make sure they stay there instead of polluting the public sphere.

      One of the commenters at LGF referenced this event
      http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/case-docket/berhanu-v-metzger

      Fighting WAR
      In 1988, Tom and John Metzger sent their best White Aryan Resistance (WAR) recruiter to organize a Portland skinhead gang. After being trained in WAR’s methods, the gang killed an Ethiopian student. Tom Metzger praised the skinheads for doing their “civic duty.”

      Center attorneys filed a civil suit, Berhanu v. Metzger, asserting the Metzgers and WAR were as responsible for the killing as the Portland skinheads. In October 1990, a jury agreed and awarded $12.5 million in damages to the family of the victim, Mulugeta Seraw.

        Yup. I hope the families will sue the ass off these racists and bankrupt them.

      • June 21, 2015 at 2:38 am

        I remember that well. I was living in the Portland, Or area where it happened. It drove Tom Metzger into bankruptcy and set back the whole skinhead movement.

          I had not heard of this either. It gives me chills that they could be that organized as to send people out to start hate groups in other areas of the country.

      They will only resurface…

      We have to remain diligent…we can not fall asleep or think that if they are defeated that is the end of it…it will never end….hence we must always remain on point and defend our civil and human rights….and pass on this legacy of diligence and action awareness to our children and grandchildren

        They will never operate outside a protected racist state now that they know they can get sued. That was 1988 before the courts were stacked with corrupt GOP racist judges and SCOTUS corporatist who would never let that happen. So much of the DOJ’s power to destroy these groups and dirty cops to bring them to justice has been watered down by these so-called judges thanks to 30yrs of the GOP. Voting matters folks.

    After the Discovery of Dylann Roof’s Website, the Council of Conservative Citizens Is Running Scared

    By Charles Johnson

    Tweet

    Share0As we noted in our previous article about the discovery of Dylann Storm Roof’s website, Roof credited the white supremacist group called the Council of Conservative Citizens with “awakening” him to “black on white crime,” and inspiring him to start out on the murderous racist path that led him to the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

    Following the exposure of Roof’s “manifesto” (and “manifesto” is too grandiose a term for what’s really just a racist rant), the Council of Conservative Citizens apparently took down their entire website; if you go to topconservativenews.com or conservative-headlines.com (the deceptively innocuous-sounding names for their hate site) you see nothing but a blank white screen at the moment.

    Here’s what his profile page looked like a few days ago, from Google’s cache:

    If you have not read the report on lynching in America by the Equal Justice Initiative, bookmark it. The massacre in Mother Emmanuel Church is a modern day lynching. The deep wound of racism still festers.

    This is the behavior and words that encourage people like Roof

    “You know the great thing about the state of Iowa is, I’m pretty sure you all define gun control the same way we do in Texas — hitting what you aim at,” Cruz said at a town hall meeting Friday in Red Oak.

      He is a evil racists sicko, and this is why the Republicans like Jeb Bush refuse to say that the killings were racially motivated, because folks like that fire fighter are part of the Republican voters. And I wouldn’t want anyone like that to vote for me, so it says alot about Jeb Bush and those Republicans politicians.

    If I am not mistaken, the flag SC appears to be so in love with is actually the Battle Flag of Northern Virginia and has nothing to do with SC.

    It is NOT the Confederate States of America flag at all. I won’t call them ignorant idiots until I can verify it, but I think I am correct.

  19. June 21, 2015 at 6:11 am

    Expression of sympathy is not enough, you hear that Democrats and Republicans. Because some of the cowards on the left is just as much the problem as all the cowards on the right. But everyone claim to be so sorry.

    On December 20, 1860, South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union and within two months, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas followed. On February 4, 1861 the Confederate States of America were organized, and a few days later on February 9, a provisional government was formed with President Jefferson Davis at its helm.
