HOUSTON POLICE VIDEO: Help cops catch the guy who assaulted & robbed mom while unloading groceries

7/2/2020

Why should we, after seeing such online, have sympathy for the kind of people who would do such a thing to a defenseless woman bringing in her groceries. People can shout all they want, but this just makes sane people more determined to be unsympathetic. Wake up people — take a look at yourselves. Those of you who yell the most should take it on themselves to find a way to stop such actions. You don’t want hate, then stop your people from being hateful.

New York Times: Cancel Mount Rushmore! Not Woke Enough: Indigenous Land, KKK Ties, Slave Owner Presidents

The New York Times has set its sights on Mount Rushmore as protesters demand the removal of historic monuments in the name of racial justice, citing its location on “Indigenous land,” the sculptor’s purported ties to white supremacy, and two of its subjects’ slave ownership.

“Mount Rushmore was built on land that belonged to the Lakota tribe and sculpted by a man who had strong bonds with the Ku Klux Klan. It features the faces of 2 U.S. presidents who were slaveholders,” the New York Times wrote, linking to a news article detailing complaints against American landmark:

The Times piece lists three broad grievances with Mount Rushmore, beginning with the sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, who was previously involved in “an enormous bas-relief at Stone Mountain in Georgia that memorialized Confederate leaders.”

“It was eventually completed without him, but Mr. Borglum formed strong bonds with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan and participated in their meetings, in part to secure funding for the Stone Mountain project,” the Times wrote, adding that Borglum “also espoused white supremacist and anti-Semitic ideas, according to excerpts from his letters included in ‘Great White Fathers,’ a book by the writer John Taliaferro about the history of Mount Rushmore.”

It is not just the sculptor critics take issue with but the faces featured in the landmark located in South Dakota’s Black Hills. Their grievances even extend to Abraham Lincoln, signer of the Emancipation Proclamation:

Critics of the monument have also taken issue with the men whose faces were etched into the granite. Mr. Borglum chose Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt, he said, because they embodied “the founding, expansion, preservation and unification of the United States.”

But each of these titans of American history has a complicated legacy. Washington and Jefferson were slaveholders. Roosevelt actively sought to Christianize and uproot Native Americans as the United States expanded, Professor Smith said. “He was a racist,” he added.

[…]

And although Lincoln was behind the Emancipation Proclamation — a move some have characterized as reluctant and late — he has been criticized for his response to the so-called Minnesota Uprising, in which more than 300 Native Americans were sentenced to death by a military court after being accused of attacking white settlers in 1862.

The Times piece also laments the location of the landmark, writing that it is “built on land that had belonged to the Lakota tribe.” It goes on to quote Nick Tilsen, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe and leader of the Indigenous activist group NDN Collective, who stated that Mount Rushmore “needs to be closed as a national monument, and the land itself needs to be returned to the Indigenous people.”

Biden Says He Will Reverse Trump’s Tax Cuts

By John Carney – 7/1/2020

Joe Biden told Wall Street donors to his campaign that he planned to reverse most of President Donald Trump’s tax cuts.

“I’m going to get rid of the bulk of Trump’s $2 trillion tax cut,” Biden said during a fundraising conference call, Fox Business Network reported. “And a lot of you may not like that but I’m going to close loopholes like capital gains and stepped-up basis.”

The former vice president said he would raise the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent, which he estimated would raise taxes by $1.3 trillion over the next decade, FBN reported.

Biden said the tax cuts were “irresponsible, sugar-high tax cuts.” He claimed, without evidence, that cutting taxes made it “harder to foot the bill” for pandemic relief. In fact, interest rates have declined while government spending on pandemic relief programs has skyrocketed.

“We have to think as big as the challenge we face. But this is America, there is nothing we cannot do if we do it together,” Biden said, according to CNBC. “But I think the country is ready.”

The event raised at least $2 million, CNBC reported.

Black Lives Matter Rioters Unleash Terror Rampage on Catholic Prayer Group in St. Louis

These thugs need to be stopped

By Shane Trejo – 6/29/2020

A group of Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters terrorized a peaceful Catholic prayer group in St. Louis on Saturday.

“Yesterday, while praying for peace and unity in our city and the protection of the Saint Louis statue, Black Lives Matter protesters started to harass, berate, and assault the Catholics that were peacefully praying. We did nothing in retaliation,” Conor Martin wrote in a Twitter post documenting the violence from the left-wing thugs.

“We allowed them to spit on us, call us names, put their fingers in our faces, push us, and antagonize, but we did not retaliate. We continued to peacefully pray,” he added in a subsequent tweet.

There were pictures captured of the violent display by the BLM terrorists who showed up to demonstrate their hatred of Christianity and white people with violence.

Martin announced that he will be pressing charges against the thugs and hopes they are punished for the violent assault they committed against the peaceful Catholics.

He is calling for the government to take action before the BLM terror group assaults more Christians and white people, and the violence becomes deadly.

Big League Politics has reported for weeks as BLM has waged war on America, instituting their regime of racial dominance with help from leftist oligarchs, the fake news media, the Democrat Party, and weak cowards in the Republican Party.

They are now setting their sights to Christianity, as the racist hate group disdains all portrayals of Jesus Christ that are too white. Faux-black race huckster Shaun King even issued a call to arms for black supremacy terrorists to target white Jesus for desecration.

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” King wrote in a Twitter post. “They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.”

King later doubled down with a subsequent tweet referring to “murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends” as “racist propaganda.”

As a result of his racist call for the overthrow of civilization and rape of Christianity, King has reportedly received death threats from Americans who are sick and tired of his communist agitating.

“These were men and women, in a private group that they had no idea I’d ever see, using their real names and identities, openly plotting to kill me and organizing each other to execute it,” King wrote.

Violence begets violence, and the silent majority – if it truly can awaken – may make cheerleaders for BLM terrorism severely regret their decisions.

Four children were among the weekend’s victims, including a 1-year-old boy fatally shot in Englewood, a 10-year-old girl killed in Logan Square and a 17-year-old boy killed in Humboldt Park.

Four children were among 65 people shot across Chicago this weekend, 18 of them fatally. Three of the children were killed.

The weekend gun violence brought Chicago past 300 homicides so far this year, the benchmark that Supt. David Brown challenged the police department to stay under in April. Last year, the city didn’t break 300 homicides until early August, according to Sun-Times data.

Three children killed

A 10-year-old girl was fatally shot Saturday night when a stray bullet hit her inside a Logan Square home on the Northwest Side.

Lina Nunez was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead hours later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire but believed it was fireworks. Police said the shots may have come from a group of males who began firing at another group in the block.

Earlier that afternoon, a 1-year-old boy was killed and his mother was wounded in Englewood on the South Side.

The woman and her child were driving home from a laundromat just after 2 p.m. when a gunman pulled up alongside them in another vehicle and opened fire near 60th and Halsted streets, according to police. The child was struck once in the chest, while his mother, 22, was grazed on the head. She drove them to St. Bernard Hospital, where the child died. The mother was later taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center for treatment and her condition was stabilized.
