  1. The Chicago Black Lives Matter organizer who justified looting as “reparation” has doubled down — insisting this week that even calling someone a criminal is “based on racism.” Ariel Atkins told WBEZ that her group “100 percent” supports the violent looters who trashed chunks of the Windy City Monday, again repeating her claim that it is “reparations.” “The whole idea of criminality is based on racism anyway,” she told the NPR station. “Because criminality is punishing people for things that they have needed to do to survive or just the way that society has affected them with white supremacist BS,” she said. “I will support the looters till the end of the day. If that’s what they need to do in order to eat, then that’s what you’ve got to do to eat,” she said of those who even tried to smash their way into a Ronald McDonald House caring for sick children and their families. Atkins dismissed the idea that civil rights had “ever gotten wins” from “peaceful protests.” “Winning has come through revolts. Winning has come through riots,” she said. ... Atkins had no sympathy for the businesses damaged in the spree, which included a small convenience store likely to go out of business after being looted twice in months. “The fact that anybody gives a s–t about these businesses over what is happening in this city right now and the pain that people are in and the suffering that is taking place, I don’t care,” she admitted.
  2. Portland protesters, rioters target police with lasers and fireworks outside federal courthouse Portland protesters and rioters returned to a federal courthouse late Wednesday into early Thursday morning, launching fireworks toward police, shining lasers into officers’ eyes and splashing at least one cop with paint, authorities said Thursday morning. Several hundreds of people in the Oregon city gathered near the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse, the neighboring Multnomah County Justice Center and a nearby police precinct station after nights of demonstrations elsewhere, including a different precinct and the offices of Portland Police Association. The group set off commercial-grade fireworks in the direction of the fence protecting the courthouse shortly after 10:30 p.m. Police ordered them over the loudspeaker to “stop launching fireworks and starting fires,” according to a press release. nstead, some members of the group allegedly responded by shining lasers into the faces of officers making the announcements. Others blocked traffic and started at least one small fire in front of a nearby precinct, authorities said. Police declared an unlawful assembly shortly after 11:30 p.m., but the events continued to escalate. “A large explosive and other fireworks were thrown towards officers, along with fist sized rocks, bottles, and cans of paint,” police said. By midnight, police reclassified the unlawful assembly as a riot, at which point the group allegedly moved back toward the area of the courthouse. “They threw eggs and continued to launch commercial grade fireworks towards officers,” police said. The crowd had dissipated by roughly 2:30 a.m. but not before someone vandalized a police car parked in the area. Over the course of the night, officers used tear gas to break up the crowd. Several people were arrested and multiple police officers were hurt, including one who suffered a severe hand injury. Associated Press Sounds like the Russians?
  3. Americans are doing a fabulous job on their own. U.S. Intel repportedly leaked the view that the Russians impacted the 2016 election. The U.S. Government under Obama disagreed. So we must try to access the weight to be given the unofficial reports of an officially questionable source.
  4. But your source is questionable. The "issue" was whether Ariel Atkins spoke for Black lives matter given that media you find "conservative" identified her as such. Turns out media that are clearly left-wing AND Black Lives Matter itself identify her as speaking for Black Lives Matter. Ariel Atkins is a Russian agent provocateur? She's been at it for years. Sleeper agent?
  5. Our Lodge sent a group to the Lakota Reservation annually to be taught dancing, drumming, and singing. They did ask us not to do the Ghost Dance, and we complied at once.
  6. The latest hurt feeling over "cultural appropriation, is female non-Asians using makeup to make their eyes look elongated - slanted. The "fox-eye" trend The Stanford Forum out on la la land decries such "Unapologetic cultural appropriation" CNN: "The 'fox eye' beauty trend continues to spread online. But critics insist it's racist" Mexican food fairs at colleges are similarly denounced - for the food and the music. Can Italian use of noodles, invented in China, be far behind? "Marcelled" hair, Reverend Sharpton? Cornrows on White females? White women claiming to be Black so they can be elected head of NAACP chapters?("I identify as Black.") The "0" - invented in India? Curry? Scotch made outside Scotland? Use of "Thursday" - named for the God Thor - for the fifth day of the week ? Woden'sday?
  7. Angela Davis, activists reignited the intergenerational fight for Black lives at NAARPR conference One of the speakers at the conference, Ariel Atkins, 28, a lead organizer for Black Lives Matter Chicago, recalled her first encounter with Chapman and CAARPR. It happened about three years ago following the election of President Donald Trump. She was among several young organizers invited to attend CAARPR meetings. From TheTribe
  8. Black Lives Matter Statement - Chicago Chapter "'The mayor clearly has not learned anything since May, and she would be wise to understand that the people will keep rising up until the [Chicago Police Department] is abolished and our Black communities are fully invested in,' the group said in a statement."
  9. That is concerning. Biased sources are a curse. But even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then. Even CNN - last year. The NBC outlet in Chicago calls her a BLM organizer. Listen: https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/black-lives-matter-holds-rally-supporting-individuals-arrested-in-chicago-looting-monday/2320365/ Is NBC "strongly biased toward conservative causes." Not that I have noticed. Black Lives Matters Chicago, on its FaceBook site, calls her "our own." Is BLM Chicago "strongly biased towards conservative causes" ? Black Lives Matter Chicago: October 23, 2019 : Our own Ariel Atkins speaking to the need to FREEZE police budget ! With Chicago Teachers Union & United Working Families Oh there's more = lots more. This from Insight Into Diversity - not a notable conservative outlet: On Aug. 1, hundreds of students from various Chicago universities and colleges joined together for a protest to demand their schools divest from the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and reform their own campus police forces. The protest, Solidarity Street: Abolish CPD Block Party, was organized by Chicago students and activists to draw attention to issues of racism surrounding campus policing. Protestors also made speeches demanding universities stop cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, redirect police funding into mental health support and healthcare resources for students, and lower tuition and housing costs if classes are held online in the fall. According to The Daily Northwestern, a student publication not known for conservatism, students from all the major schools in the Chicago area attended, including the University of Chicago, DePaul University, Northwestern University, University of Illinois at Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, Columbia College Chicago, Roosevelt University, and Northeastern Illinois University. The crowd of student protestors met at Millennium Park, where they were addressed by Tynetta Muhammad, a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a member of Black Youth Project 100, a national organization that describes itself as being comprised of “Black youth activists creating justice and freedom for all Black people.” Muhammad was joined by other speakers, including Ariel Atkins from Black Lives Matter Chicago, who spoke about her own experience with police brutality when protesting against the CPD. Atkins stated that at previous protests she attended, she was tear gassed and watched police beat fellow protestors. Ariel Atkins represented Black Lives Matter Chicago at a rally of Parole Illinois, demanding defunding of the Cook County Sheriff's Department and closing the jail. And here she is: "Black Lives Matter Chicago activist blasted Lightfoot for caring, she said, more about police funding and luxury developers than improving impoverished schools. 'That’s not my mayor! That’s not my gay, black woman leader!' Atkins said. 'We need to shut this jail down, we need to shut these prisons down. .... And we need to get that witch out of office because she’s not for us.'" Not especially conservative. People's' World, the organ of the Communist Party: "Ariel Atkins, an active member of both the Black Lives Matters-Chicago chapter and the Chicago Alliance, was present at Monday’s protest and said that there were lots of emotions from local residents who felt as though their voices were not being centered. “People were frustrated,” said Atkins. “This is a community of black folks that are not often heard, so when a hundred-something people show up that have never set foot in these places, it creates a lot of tension.” But perhaps even Communists have gone "conservative" in the face of the current events. Stalin would certainly never have tolerated the mass rioting and looting. Want more? Please ask.
  10. I love fajitas. Offended? Tough.
  11. Are X people allowed to imitate Y people? Pick your definitions of "X" and "Y."
  12. August 10, 2020 Black Lives Matter holds rally in Chicago to support those arrested after looting, unrest “That is reparations,” a BLM organizer said. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance" Black Lives Matter Chicago issued a statement obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times that read, “The mayor clearly has not learned anything since May, and she would be wise to understand that the people will keep rising up until the [Chicago Police Department] is abolished and our Black communities are fully invested in,” the group said in a statement.
  13. Chicago looting triggers over 100 arrests, 13 officers hurt as mayor warns criminals: 'We are coming for you' "We are not going to let our city be taken over by criminals and vigilantes,' Mayor Lightfoot said" after City taken over by criminals. "CPD became aware of several social media posts encouraging looting downtown," [Police Superintendent] Brown said, and the department dispatched roughly 400 officers to the region. Brown also said a security guard and a civilian are now in critical condition at a local hospital after being hit with gunfire during the looting overnight, and he said that five guns in total have been recovered. The unrest began Sunday afternoon after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. While being pursued by police, the man, who was on foot, “turned and fired shots” at officers before being struck himself and taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. A crowd that had gathered at the scene then faced off against police and started hurling objects at officers after getting agitated over a false rumor that the suspect – who is 20-years-old – was a child, investigators add. Brown says the suspect previously has been arrested four times for charges including burglary, child endangerment and domestic battery. NO PEACE, NO JUSTICE.
  14. Feet have the ultimate power. Ask Landers, Frary and Clark, in its time the largest consumer metal products company in the World - that knew better than the customers what the customer wanted. Turns out the customers have all the power.
