Kaep Loves Protesting on Live TV, but Here’s the 1 Photo He Wants Kept Secret

When former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the anti-American trend of sitting or taking a knee while the national anthem was played, he insisted he was using his platform to raise awareness and start a broader dialogue regarding perceived racial inequalities in America and police brutality.

Other players who have joined the protest trend have echoed those sentiments, and while some of them may truly believe it and think they aren’t being disrespectful or un-American, the reality is that many Americans do indeed find their actions to be quite disrespectful and offensive.

And in Kaepernick’s case, just a wee bit hypocritical.

You see, while the bi-racial Kaepernick rails against the perceived oppression of minorities in America by a “white supremacist” system, he himself doesn’t appear to have been all that “oppressed” and held back from opportunity by “white people,” but was in fact raised and presented with a multitude of opportunity by white people, namely his adoptive white mother and father.

Falwell Praises Trump For ‘Bold Truthful’ Words On Charlottesville

President Donald Trump received a ringing endorsement Wednesday from one evangelical supporter who is not turning his back on the president.

“Finally a leader in WH. Jobs returning, N Korea backing down, bold truthful stmt about #charlottesville tragedy. So proud of @realdonaldtrump,” Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. tweeted.

On Tuesday, Trump said both sides in the Charlottesville violence were to blame for letting unrest get out of hand. Falwell is not the only major evangelical figure to support Trump.

On Sunday, when many voices were condemning Trump for blaming both sides in his response to Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Rev. Franklin Graham stood by him.

“Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in #Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd,” Graham wrote on his Facebook page.

“What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions? How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue? And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame President Donald J. Trump for everything,” he wrote.

Graham said that the division taking place furthers the ends of Satan.

“Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other. My prayer is that our nation will come together. We are stronger together, and our answers lie in turning to God,” he wrote.

Some clergy backed Trump’s comments Monday condemning neo-Nazis.

“I condemn the forces of white nationalism, white supremacy and anti-Semitism that divide our country today, and I also condemn those who seek to politicize it all for their political gain,” said minister Samuel Rodriguez, who took part in Trump’s inauguration.

“Unless, we bridge this senseless and partisan divide there will be more horrors to come. It’s on each of us to be a part of solution and it begins with turning our political swords into plowshares. We must begin to work together to heal our nation,” he said.

Democrats are quick to cry ‘RACISM!’ at every turn. But what does history say about that?

> They lost the Election because of RACISM!

> If you critique Obama’s policies, it’s RACISM!

> If you believe that enforcing the Rule of Law is right, it’s RACISM!

> If you believe that we should secure our borders, it’s RACISM!

> If you think that police officers should be permitted to use force when their lives are in danger, it’s RACISM!

> If you believe that inner-cities should have school choice, it’s RACISM!

> If you’re a Republican, it’s RACISM!

The Democrats haven’t changed much, as you can see.

Here’s a ‘Quick’n’Dirty’ History lesson:

– The 1857 Dred Scott case at Supreme Court, where 9 Democrat Justices determined that Scott was not a citizen, but property. Chief Justice Roger Taney said that slaves were, ‘so far inferior … that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit.’democrats-not-republicans

– Dec. 6, 1865. Republicans pushed through the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery. Southern Democrats respond by passing ‘Black Codes’ and ‘Jim Crow Laws’ to essentially re-enslave blacks, institutionalize racism, and deny blacks the right to own firearms. These laws were soundly criticized by Republicans.democrats-not-republicans

– May 10, 1866. Republicans pass the 14th Amendment, extending state citizenship rights to former slaves. 100 % of Democrats opposed it.democrats-not-republicans

– Jan. 8, 1867. Republicans in give freed slaves voting rights in DC, overturning Democrat President Andrew Jackson’s veto. Republicans continue to expand and protect voting rights to freed slaves, again overturning the veto of President Jackson. The impeachment process of Andrew Jackson begins at the initiative of Republicans in 1868.republicans-not-democrats

– Feb. 3, 1870. The 15th Amendment passed, granting voting rights to all men regardless of race. 97% of Democrats opposed it.democrats-not-republicans

– Once the 15th Amendment was passed, Democrats used the KKK and lynchings to intimidate and persecute blacks.democrats-not-republicans

– May 31, 1870. Republican President Grant passed the Enforcement Act imposing harsh penalties for depriving any citizen of their civil rights.republicans-not-democrats

– Feb. 28, 1871. Republicans pass another Enforcement Act granting federal protection for black voters.republicans-not-democrats

– April 20, 1871. Republicans pass the Ku Klux Klan Act, outlawing Democrat-affiliated groups that oppressed blacks.republicans-not-democrats

Democrat President Woodrow Wilson segregated the US Navydemocrats-not-republicans

– During WWII, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower decided to arm African Americans. As a result, in 1952 and 1956, a majority of blacks voted for President Eisenhower.republicans-not-democrats

– 1957 and 1959, President Eisenhower proposed civil rights bills to enforce the 15th Amendment. Hillary’s mentor, Klansman Sen. Robert Byrd and Gov. George Wallace opposed.democrats-not-republicans

One parting thought:

Here’s what the former president of the United States had to say when he eulogized his mentor, an Arkansas senator:

We come to celebrate and give thanks for the remarkable life of J. William Fulbright, a life that changed our country and our world forever and for the better. . . . In the work he did, the words he spoke and the life he lived, Bill Fulbright stood against the 20th century’s most destructive forces and fought to advance its brightest hopes.

So spoke President William J. Clinton in 1995 of a man was among the 99 Democrats in Congress to sign the “Southern Manifesto” in 1956. (Two Republicans also signed it.) The Southern Manifesto declared the signatories’ opposition to the Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education and their commitment to segregation forever. Fulbright was also among those who filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964. That filibuster continued for 83 days…democrats-not-republicans

…What is unforgivable is the way Democrats are still using race to foment hatred. Remember what happened to Trent Lott when he uttered a few dumb words about former segregationist Strom Thurmond? He didn’t get the kind of pass Bill Clinton did when praising Fulbright. Earlier this month, Hillary Clinton told a mostly black audience that “what is happening is a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, poor people and young people from one end of our country to another. . . . Today Republicans are systematically and deliberately trying to stop millions of American citizens from voting.” Leftist Propagandist

She was presumably referring to voter-ID laws, which, by the way, 51 percent of black Americans support.

Racism has an ugly past in the Democratic party. The accusation of racism has an ugly present.

Cal State University Brings Back Segregation


waving flagBy Tad Cronn September 7, 2016

“Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” — Matthew 7:15-16

Consider this the fruit of Progressivism.

California State University Los Angeles, one of the most liberal campuses in one of the most liberal towns in the most liberal university system in the most liberal state, is instituting racially segregated student housing.

Sixty-two years after the Supreme Court unanimously ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal,” and therefore a violation of the 14th Amendment, Progressives are taking huge steps toward rolling back one of the signature victories of the Civil Rights Movement.

Back in 1963, liberals were still fighting against equal rights for black Americans when Democratic Gov. George Wallace stood in a doorway of the University of Alabama — after having declared in his campaign, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” — and tried to block the entrance of students Viviane Malone and James Hood.

George Wallace
FILE – In this June 11, 1963 file photo, Democratic Gov. George Wallace blocks the entrance to the University of Alabama as he turned back a federal officer attempting to enroll two black students at the university campus in Tuscaloosa, Ala. (Library of Congress)

Now, liberals are still standing in the door at Cal State L.A., but this time it’s the door to segregated housing, they’re holding it open and inviting duped young black people to segregate themselves and prove they are not worthy to mingle with non-black students.More Evidence

Oh sure, the liberals behind this grossly offensive, retrograde scheme to take us back to the Progressive Golden Age when whites were whites and blacks sat in the back of the bus have a smooth-talking sales pitch.

But the real joke is black students asked for this themselves.

The Black Student Union gave a list of demands to the university that included a $30 million black student endowment, an anti-discrimination policy that would require “cultural competency training,” compulsory “ethnic studies courses” and segregated housing. The special snowflakes did this because of alleged frequent racist “attacks,” such as racially insensitive remarks and microaggressions by faculty and students.

Many critics over the years have noticed how liberals, while talking a great game about equality, always pursue policies that work to “keep blacks on the plantation,” that is, keep them dependent and Democratic.d-slaves-new-600-ci-1

Liberalism in colleges has apparently worked such a number on the brains of young black people that they have been talked into throwing away something their parents and grandparents worked so hard to achieve, and thinking it’s their own genius idea.

The giveaway is that the university hasn’t complied with all the black students’ demands, but they’ve given them the segregated housing, sold as an affordable “safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other.”

Yeah, the university’s all over that one, probably using public funds to do it, too.

The Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community, according to one university spokesman, will “focus on academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory.” Inclusive and non-discriminatory except, you know, for the whole racial segregation thing.

Cal State L.A. isn’t the only institute of higher learning trying to turn back the clocks, either. Last month, it was revealed that a community college in Illinois was providing “blacks-only” sections of a mandatory freshman class.

Racially segregated housing is also available at UC Berkeley (of course), UC Davis and the University of Connecticut, according to The College Fix.

President George W. Bush, in a speech to the NAACP, once talked about the soft bigotry of low expectations. That’s the code the Left lives by, the unspoken (except at cocktail parties) belief that blacks can’t support themselves, rule themselves or make it in the world without the Nanny State.

Black_Lives_Matter_Sign_Minneapolis_ProtestWhen black Americans first began going to the same schools as whites, it was with hope and courage to be able to seize the future and assume their place as proud Americans and pillars of society.

How sad and soiled that dream has become as successive generations have regressed into voluntary slavery through acceptance of cradle-to-grave coddling and the open expression of the racism that has always been implied by the Left’s socialist views.

If I could say one thing to today’s young people entering college, I would say, take a look in the mirror. See that handsome young man or beautiful young lady (because we’re all handsome or beautiful in our way) staring back at you? If you learn nothing else at college, learn this: That person in the mirror is NOT the person Progressives want to be in charge of your life. This is:

hillary-squish

A wealthy, corrupt, lying, mentally ill, old white woman who sees you merely as a means to her enrichment and greater power. And she’s just one of many.

Think about it.

WOW: What Hillary Just Said at NAACP Meeting About Cops Will Have You FUMING


waving flagPosted on July 19, 2016

The Hilldebeest is not letting up on the false narrative that cops are involved in systemic racism. Her words will have you fuming with rage. Quite unbelievable.

By Jerome Woehrle

With the fervor of a left-wing ideologue, Hillary Clinton accused America’s police of racism in a speech today to the NAACP, saying that “We need to recognize our privilege,” and end the “systemic racism” that exists in the criminal justice system.

Clinton falsely argued that racism pervades police shootings, saying, “let’s admit it, there is clear evidence that African-Americans are disproportionately killed in police incidents compared to any other group.” Most police shooting victims are white, but it is true that 26% of those shot by police in 2015 were black, compared to 13% of the population. But that higher rate simply reflects the higher crime rate in the black community, and the fact that black suspects are disproportionately likely to pose a risk to police. As the Daily Wire notes, “Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. This is according to FBI data, which also found that 40 percent of cop killers are black.” Moreover, a “police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person.” This is backed up even by a recent study by a liberal-leaning black Harvard economics professor, Roland G. Fryer. That study, “‘analyzing more than 1,000 officer-involved shootings across the country, reports that there is zero evidence of racial bias in police shootings.”Epidemic of racism

Indeed, as the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald notes in the Wall Street Journal, a “‘deadly force’ lab study at Washington State University by researcher Lois James found that participants were biased in favor of black suspects, over white or Hispanic ones, in simulated threat scenarios. The research, published in 2014 in the Journal of Experimental Criminology, confirmed what Ms. James had found previously in studying active police officers, military personnel and the general public.” Nor are white officers more likely to shoot blacks than black and Hispanic officers are. As Mac Donaldnotes, “In 2015 a Justice Department analysis of the Philadelphia Police Department found that white police officers were less likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot unarmed black suspects.” And the risk of violent crime comes disproportionately from blacks. More than half of all murders in America are committed by blacks, who are just 13% of the population. (See FBI, “2014 Uniform Crime Reports: Crime in the United States,” Table 43A, Arrests by Race, 2014.)

Clinton also accused the police of racism in stops and searches, saying that “African-American men are far more likely to be stopped and searched by police.” But as a black lawyer and member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Peter Kirsanow, noted in 2015, the fact that a higher percentage of blacks are stopped by police than whites does not show racial discrimination, since “several studies over the last 20 years (including data adduced before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights) show that black drivers commit various types of traffic offenses – including speeding, driving under suspension, DUI, and running red lights and stop signs – more often than drivers of other races.” While there are individual cases of cops racially-profiling black motorists, most police do not engage in such racial profiling, and the fact that a higher percentage of black motorists are stopped reflects a higher black crime rate, not racial profiling.

Clinton also falsely insinuated that racist school officials were colluding with racist police to put black students in jail, saying that we must “dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline that starts in school and diverts too many African-American kids out of school and into the criminal justice system.” This reflects a misconception, widespread on the Left, that there is institutional racism in school suspensions, which supposedly results in blacks being suspended at a higher rate even though blacks allegedly do not behave worse on average than whites.More Evidence

5 Devastating Facts About Black-on-Black Crime


waving flagby Jerome Hudson, 28 Nov 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/28/5-devastating-facts-black-black-crime/

Where were these Black Lives Matter protesters after the slaying of Chicago’s little Tyshawn Lee, the 9-year-old lured into an alley and shot to death by a black man seeking gang-related vengeance against his father?

Did little Tyshawn’s murder at the hands of a black gangster–an all too common occurrence in Chicago–not warrant wall-to-wall news coverage or Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson-style calls for “justice”?

No.

Why?

Because the ugly truth behind #BlackLivesMatter is that black people killing other black people does nothing to advance its political power in the same way that one white cop killing a black criminal can.  Despite the media’s overindulgence on white cops killing blacks, there is still a far-larger amount of black bodies being sent to morgues by black killers. Here’s five devastating facts, liberals can’t deny, that prove it.qmeme_1468070305588_874

FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.

According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.

In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster. Thusly….qmeme_1468071197158_427

FACT 3. Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks committed half of homicides in the United States for nearly 30 years.

DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides. In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent. There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes? Given this rate, it’s no wonder that there aren’t more assistances where cops kill black criminals.

FACT 4. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.

There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

Chicago’s death toll from 2001November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.Epidemic of racism

FACT 5. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.
