When the elected president suddenly has very little power compared to the UNELECTED tech companies and MSM… laws need to change, the left has basically installed their own unremovable government to overlay the existing one..
“Keeping the white menace under control.”
Inciting the mob to target more American monuments.
CNN has compiled a list of “unforgivable” statues and place names, leading some to accuse the network of inciting the mob to tear them down.
Since the riots in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, numerous statues and monuments across the country have been defaced and torn down.
In one case, a statue fell on top of a protester in Portsmouth, Virginia, leaving him in a coma and in Albuquerque yesterday, a mob tearing down a statue turned on and attacked an armed man, leading to a protester being shot as the man tried to defend himself from a vicious attack.
Apparently, America hasn’t experienced enough violent chaos recently given the network’s decision to publish an article listing a number of “unforgivable” statues, effectively painting a target on them.
In an article entitled ‘Honoring the unforgivable – The horrific acts behind the names on America’s infamous monuments and tributes’, CNN’s Eliott C. McLaughlin asserts, “If historical figures embraced hate or violence, it doesn’t matter that they were great singers, innovators or wartime strategists, nor that they had changes of heart later in life.”
He then goes on to list a number of ‘offensive’ monuments or sites named after ‘racist’ historical figures, clearly hinting that they should be changed or removed.
The list includes;
– A memorial to George Preston Marshall on the grounds of Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium.
– Fort Benning.
– A bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest stands at the Tennessee State Capitol.
– A statue of conquistador Don Juan de Oñate which stands outside the Albuquerque Museum.
– Dozens of buildings, several roads and a bridge in West Virginia that bear the name of Sen. Robert Byrd.
– The Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama.
– Yale’s Calhoun College.
Other monuments listed in the article have already been removed, suggesting the rest should follow suit.
And CNN still claims to be an impartial news network, not an activist outlet, which is what it has clearly become.
Don’t expect much media coverage of this.

US bracing for continued demonstrations, race riots
JUNE 15, 2020
Demonstrations against police brutality and calling for racial equality are planned to continue Monday, three weeks after the death in police custody of George Floyd in Minnesota and days after police shot dead Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta.
Monday’s demonstrations include a march on the Georgia state capitol and protesters gathering in Lafayette Park, across the from the White House, where two weeks ago law enforcement forcefully cleared a peaceful crowd shortly before President Donald Trump walked through the area for a photo opportunity at a nearby church.
Also Monday, the U.N. Human Rights Council agreed to hold an urgent debate on Wednesday “on the current racially inspired human rights violations, systematic racism, police brutality and violence against peaceful protesters.”
Sunday brought protests in numerous cities, including Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami.
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said on CBS television’s “Face the Nation” Sunday she hopes officers can move back into a section of the city taken over by peaceful protesters without resorting to “something that devolves into a force situation.”
Protesters have peacefully occupied a four-block part of the city which they’ve named “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” Organizers say they want a neighborhood without police. A huge “Black Lives Matter” mural covers the area’s main thoroughfare.
U.S. President Donald Trump has called the occupiers “ugly anarchists” and said the city should “take back” the zone.
But Mayor Jenny Durkan last week likened the zone to “a block party atmosphere” and no threat to the public but said it will be restored to the city at some time.
Anti-racism marches inspired by George Floyd’s death continued all weekend in some large European cities.
Demonstrators in Berlin formed a 9-kilometer long chain that began at the Brandenburg Gate.
In Paris, it was the police who protested what they say are unfair accusations of racism and brutality.
Shortly after 15,000 people demonstrated in the French capital, about 50 officers and their police cars surrounded the Arc de Triomphe.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Sunday “racist thuggery” has no place in British streets after right-wing extremists attacked protesters against racism. About 100 people were arrested.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan blamed the violence solely on the rightwingers and he thanked police for doing a “fantastic job” in restoring order.
Also Sunday, hundreds marched through Tokyo, holding banners reading “Black Lives Matter.”
Thousands also demonstrated Sunday in New Zealand and took a knee for a moment of silence for George Floyd in front of the U.S. consulate.

I don’t even care for celebrity culture. It’s bad enough they kept saying “We’re all in this together” while they sit back in their multi million dollar mansion, but now they pull this?!
