WKMG / Graham Media Bullshit: News 6 hosts Real Talk town hall on equality in schools

WKMG Channel 6, Orlando’s ultra-left and thus lowest-rated newscast, continues to stir the pot and race-bait in the run up to the November 3rd elections.

https://www.clickorlando.com/news/local/2020/08/27/news-6-hosts-real-talk-town-hall-on-equality-in-schools/

There is a noticeable absence in comments from both the regular leftist and conservative contributors, suggesting censorship and shadow banning has gone into overdrive.

Are even the leftists done with WKMG’s racist nonsense and thus being suppressed?

In the past, even leftist commenters have complained about being “content disabled” by Viafoura, WKMG’s Toronto-based “moderator,” that they have just given up even trying to comment. Which may well me the idea.

Bill Cosby’s Pound Cake Speech

In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school , because behind every drawn shade was an eye.

And before your mother got off the bus and into the house, she knew exactly where you had gone, who had gone into the house. Parents don’t know that today.

I’m talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was two? Where were you when he was 12? Where were you when he was 18? And how come you didn’t know he had a pistol?

These are not…these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake. 

And then we all run out. We’re outraged. “Oh, the cops. They shouldn’t have shot him!”

What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?

Brown vs. the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem. We’ve got to take the neighborhood back! 

We’ve got to go in there. It’s right around the corner! They’re standing on the corner. It can’t speak English! It doesn’t want to speak English! It’s that…I can’t even talk the way these people talk. 

“Why you ain’t where you is goin’ why is…”

I don’t know who these people are. And…and I blame the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. This is all in the house!

Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads! 

You can’t land a plane with, “Why you ain’t where are…(scat)…” 

You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth. 

Why can’t you hit the streets? Why can’t you clean it out yourself? It’s out time now, Ladies and Gentlemen. It is our time. And I have good news for you. It’s not about money. It’s about you doing something that ordinarily we’d do: Get in somebody else’s business!

It’s time for you to not accept this language that these people are speaking, which will take them nowhere.

What the hell good is Brown vs the Board of Education if nobody wants it? I mean, this is the future. And all of these people who lined up and done whatever, they gotta be wondering, “What the hell happened?”

Brown vs. The Board of Education. These people who marched and were hit in the face with rocks and were punched in the face to get an education. And we got these knuckleheads walking around, don’t wanna learn English. 

When you go to the church, looked at the stained glass panes of Jesus. Look at ‘em. Is Jesus smiling? Not in one picture. So tell your friends. Let’s try and do something. Let’s make Jesus smile. Let’s start parenting. 

Thank you. Thank you. 

Remember when corporate media was telling us corona virus was nothing to worry about? Before the switch was flipped?

https://www.clickorlando.com/entertainment/2020/03/02/media-faces-challenges-in-covering-coronavirus-outbreak/

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Covering the coronavirus story requires careful navigation and constant attention.

News organizations trying to responsibly report on the growing health crisis are confronted with the task of conveying its seriousness without provoking panic, keeping up with a torrent of information while much remains a mystery and continually advising readers and viewers how to stay safe.

The coronavirus has sickened thousands, quarantined millions and sent financial markets reeling — all while some cultural critics say the story is overblown.

“It’s hard to tell people to put something into context and to calm down when the actions being taken in many cases are very strong or unprecedented,” said Glen Nowak, director of the Grady College Center for Health and Risk Communication at the University of Georgia.

“I keep reminding the viewers that still, based on two very large studies, the vast majority of people who get this infection are not going to get sick,” said Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s medical correspondent. “They’re going to have a mild illness, if any, and they’re going to recover. This tends to be very reassuring to people. But I don’t want to minimize this. We’re dealing with something that is growing and becoming a legitimate pandemic.”

“Pandemic” — defined by Webster’s as an outbreak that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population — is one of the scary-sounding words and phrases that some journalists take care about using.

Fahey said the AP avoids calling it a “deadly” disease because, for most people, it isn’t. Dr. John Torres, medical correspondent at NBC News, edits out phrases like “horrific” or “catastrophic.”

Images, too, merit careful consideration. Pictures of people wearing face masks often illustrate stories, despite evidence that the masks matter little in transmission of the virus, Nowak said.

Sensational headlines can grab attention yet also unnecessarily frighten. An Atlantic magazine article last week was headlined “You’re Likely to Get the Coronavirus.”

Sensationalism actually tends to decline in these situations, said Peter Sandman, a consultant and expert in risk communication.

“Reporters love to sensationalize trivia or rare risks — think flesh-eating bacteria — to give their audience a vicarious thrill,” Sandman said. “But when risks get serious and widespread, media coverage gets sober.”

CNN’s Gupta has talked about people needing to consider “social distancing” if pockets of infection build in the United States. He has revealed on the air that his own house is stocked with supplies in case his family has to remain home for any period of time.

“People could be frightened by that,” Gupta conceded. “It’s not the intent. It’s in the way that you convey these things.”

The virus produces a seemingly endless supply of stories that stretch beyond the medical: Wall Street’s tumble, school and business closings, concert cancellations. The makers of Corona beer denied reports that the similarity of its name to the virus was hurting business. Italians are shying away from traditional kisses on the cheek. Churchgoers are nervous about handshake greetings of peace.

As is inevitable in divided times, the coronavirus has become a political issue in the United States, where commentators are weighing in on how President Donald Trump is reacting to the crisis. On Fox News, Donald Trump Jr. said of the Democrats: “For them to try to take a pandemic, and hope it comes here and kills millions of people so they can end Donald Trump’s streak of winning, is a new level of sickness.”

CNN’s Gupta said he tries to be wary of what politicians say about the coronavirus.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis needs to put an end to the destructive corona virus hoax NOW!

Why are we still dealing with this in Florida?

What was going on inside of DeSantis’s head when he decided that throwing millions of Floridians out of work, to be left to the mercy of an inadequate, and ultimately collapsed, unemployment system was a good idea?

Prior to March 15, we were told not to panic, not to wear a mask, “go to Chinatown” and everything would be fine. Then, “somebody” flipped the switch and caused this economic disaster. And DeSantis went right along with it.


The CDC has finally admitted that only six per cent of purported corona virus deaths were, in fact, a result of the virus itself. In a recent interview on Orlando’s Fox 35,the Orange County medical examiner admitted “97 to 98 per cent” of corona virus deaths had underlying causes such as heart disease and advanced age. The Associated Press tried to pass off the death of Annie Glenn, widow of late Keating Five senator John Glenn, as a COVID death “at age 100.”


Putting aside all of that, there is NOTHING, ZERO the government can do to stop nature. Government is lousy at everything. It is lousy at delivering mail, it is lousy at running trains, it is lousy at running public housing, it is lousy at running hospitals. And in Florida, it is certainly lousy at running unemployment compensation. Had “COVID” been left to run its course, as the CDC did in the case of SARS (another corona virus outbreak) in Toronto in 2003, it would have been forgotten about within two months. There were no masks in Toronto, no shutdowns, no lockdowns. Public transit, schools, restaurants, hotels, stores, salons, businesses of all sizes remained OPEN. The only people who were quarantined were those who were exposed. Sick people got treated.


We were soothed into this lockdown with the promise that it was “two weeks to slow the spread.” We were promised a $1,200 “stimulus.” Then politicians started talking about weekly unemployment supplements going to the end of July (JULY?!!!) and REGULAR monthly payments of the $1,200. Rush Limbaugh said everything would be done “two weeks at a time.” 



At the first sign that this was obviously political, DeSantis should have stepped in and put a stop to this crap. 


With regard to the face diapers, the very fact that a “mask” was any piece of cloth you can wrap around your face should have been a red alert that this was a hoax. Does anybody stop to ask how a “mask” is offering any protection when your glasses or sunglasses are fogging up in our tropical climate when you exhale?


The state legislature must be recalled and action must be taken to end this charade once and for all. This is clearly political. It has nothing to do with any public health concern, and everything to do with sabotaging President Trump and interfering with the election. 
Governor DeSantis must sign an executive order outlawing the mask orders, ending “social distancing,” re-opening the state IN FULL and ordering the suspension of the requirement to obtain a conceal carry permit until further notice due to the continued Soros-sponsored violence across the nation. The state house and senate must then back that action up with legislation which would forbid anything like this from ever happening again. 


We have millions of people across Florida who have been unemployed since March and are still unemployed or, at best under-employed. We can’t do anything about Democrat states such as New York sabotaging our economy by forbidding their citizens from traveling to Florida, but it is about time DeSantis showed leadership for once by stating that Florida is fully open for business, we are all getting back to work, there is no danger and all are welcome once again.
This NEVER should have been done. Governor DeSantis was a weak, pathetic RINO for allowing it to happen. It must end NOW!


WKMG ClickOrlando Bullshit: News 6 hosts Real Talk town hall on equality in schools

https://www.clickorlando.com/news/local/2020/08/27/news-6-hosts-real-talk-town-hall-on-equality-in-schools/

Many Central Florida students returning to the classroom this semester will have to come to grips with the fact that their learning experience may not be the same as some of their peers.

Racial disparities show up in several ways in the academic setting, whether it be Black students receiving harsher punishments than that white counterparts, being less likely to be recommended for gifted programs or in some cases, they can be the victims of microaggressions that put a spotlight on their educator’s implicit bias.

Orlando’s most liberal, and thus lowest-rated television newsroom continues to stir the pot and foment a race war as Joe Biden and the Democrats collapse in support. And, “microaggressions?” Seriously?

They have adopted the Associated Press’s demand to capitalize the “b” in “black” while keeping the “w” in “white” lower case. Just to remind everybody how virtuous they really are.

With regard to blacks “being less likely to be recommended for gifted programs…” they might start by adopting standard American English, not ghetto ebonics.  Unfortunately, with the “mayor” of Orange County, Jerry Demings, and his congress critter wife, Val, held up as role models, it’s a tough sell given their own challenges with the English language.

Both these incidents happened in Orange County, where federally reported civil rights data from 2015, the most recent year available, shows that 53% of students who were expelled were Black , even though Black students only make up 26.5% of the district’s population.

Other statistics from that report include: Black students received 48.7% of in-school suspensions, 52.9% of out-of-school suspensions and 44% of referrals to law enforcement; Black  students missed 39,819 days of school due to being suspended compared to the 6,731 days white students missed and 53% of students who were expelled were Black.


Your humble correspondent recommends black parents, or even the youts themselves, turn off the gangster rap for just a moment and check out Bill Cosby’s Pound Cake speeches.

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/adamserwer/bill-cosby-pound-for-pound

But these people, the ones up here in the balcony fought so hard. Looking at the incarcerated, these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! And then we all run out and are outraged, ‘The cops shouldn’t have shot him.’ What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand? I wanted a piece of pound cake just as bad as anybody else, and I looked at it and I had no money. And something called parenting said, ‘If you get caught with it you’re going to embarrass your mother.’ Not ‘You’re going to get your butt kicked.’ No. ‘You’re going to embarrass your family.’

In the neighborhood that most of us grew up in, parenting is not going on. In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school because every drawn shade was an eye. And before your mother got off the bus and to the house, she knew exactly where you had gone, who had gone into the house, and where you got on whatever you had on and where you got it from. Parents don’t know that today.

When you want to clear your neighborhood out, first thing you do is go get the black Muslims, bean pies and all. And your neighborhood is then clear.

The police can’t do it.

I’m telling you Christians, what’s wrong with you? Why can’t you hit the streets? Why can’t you clean it out yourselves?

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a damned thing about Africa. With names like Shaniqua, Shaligua, Mohammed and all that crap and all of them are in jail.

 

It is worth noting that Cosby “got into trouble” with decades-old allegations not long after making those speeches.

Whether you believe or disbelieve the legal charges, he was absolutely correct about the subject matter of black personal responsibility.


 

Keep in mind that the numbers provided by the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Data Collection do not provide explanations as to why students were disciplined.

Well, you know, that’s kind of an important detail, isn’t it?

It isn’t a highly-publicized fact, but the only reason that Trayvon Martin was up in the Orlando area (Sanford) and not back home in Miami is because he was kicked out of school.

Those numbers show that on average across Orange County for the 2018-2019 academic year, the graduation rate for Black students was 71%, 81.5% for white students, 78.7% for Hispanic or Latino students, 97.9% for Asian students and 97.7% for biracial students.

This is not unique to Orlando or to Florida. This is a national problem. The education system is owned lock, stock and barrel by the teacher unions. It’s about time Florida, Texas or even Kansas broke up that monopoly and gave education back to the people. Put real people with real life experience in the classrooms.

Who would be better suited to handle a class full of gangbangers in training? A 20-something girl who just graduated from teacher college or a 25-year Marine combat veteran who has seen it all and done it all?

And on that subject, it’s time to un-retire the Board of Education.

The Board of Education

In a recent Instagram post, Educators for Justice described some of the ways anti-Blackness shows up in the classroom. That includes educators acting more patient with white students, telling Black students they aren’t going to succeed in life and ignoring students of color when they say they’re being discriminated against.

Another reason to get real people in the classroom. Businessmen who have succeeded in life and are ill-inclined to hear the insufferable “racism” crutch.

That same post, embedded above, also provided solutions to make classrooms more equal. Some of those remedies are as simple as providing black and brown shades in art supplies so students feel their skin tones are being represented, teaching students about Black authors and scientists who they can look up to and setting high expectations for Black students and encouraging them to meet those expectations.

So why don’t the school districts hire  authors and scientists to come into the classroom and impart their experience on a part-time basis?

As of September 1, 2020, 661 people have been killed by police. 242 of them white, only 123 of them black.

A&E as much as admitted a problem existed with black crime when it canceled its highly-rated “Live PD.” Most episodes of The First 48 feature black and hispanic murder victims and suspects. They also prominently feature black and hispanic detectives working to solve the case.

WKMG, its parent Graham Media (formerly The Washington Post) would be well advised to simmer down the race war they are trying to foment. It is a conflict they are not going to win. Unfortunately, here in Orlando, most crime happens in the “black” neighborhoods. Channel 6 does not report a lot of drive-by shootings in Doctor Philips and Winter Park. Pretending otherwise does not help anybody.

Graham Media’s WKMG-TV (Orlando) Too Cowardly to Ban; Resorts to Shadow Banning

I thought something was strange this past week when I wasn’t getting the usual hate mail in response to my comments on the ultra-leftist former Washington Post TV station, WKMG Channel In Orlando. Even more strange, my comments were not generating any votes, up or down.

 

Screen Shot 2020-09-01 at 4.02.53 PM

I tried an experiment today. I cleared my cache and my cookies and went through stories (“stories” being the operative word in corporate media) where I had left comments. They were not there. I signed back in and scrolled down through the same stories and, sure enough, there they were as if nothing was amiss.

My screen name was Pierre Poutine.

WKMG (named for late Washington Post publisherette Katharine Meyer Graham) uses Viafoura, the heavy-handed liberal censor, as its “moderator.” Viafoura is based in Toronto.

A common theme of my comments has been calling out the overblown corona virus hype. Using their own “case numbers” as well as purported deaths, I often point out that this amounts to a recovery and survival rate of better than 98 (closer to 99) per cent.

Screen Shot 2020-09-01 at 4.10.01 PM

 

When they run stories about those impacted by unemployment, those facing hunger and eviction, I would often point out that perhaps it wasn’t a good idea to shut down the entire state of Florida, the United States, and the world for that matter for a disease with such a low mortality rate.

WKMG is also very sensitive about race. They have deleted comments from myself and others questioning the trend in corporate media to capitalize the “b” in black, while keeping the “w” in white lower case.

They ban the use of the term “gentle giant” when used in the context of the latest murders in The Happiest Place On Earth.

In a damning indictment of Joe Biden, WKMG has even banned directly quoting some of Biden’s more memorable lines. “You ain’t black” and “Are you a junkie?” among other quotes, have been deleted.

YouAintBlackJoeBiden

JoeBidenAreYouAJunkie

When President Trump’s brother Robert died, WKMG kept comments up which cheered the death of Mr. Trump and which lamented that it was the “wrong Trump.”

It is generally WKMG’s practice to put comments up immediately, unless they include a trigger word, and then get around to removing the comments which offend their liberal sensibilities later.

Because of this, it is clear that they remove many comments with a conservative point of view, while keeping liberal comments up no matter how obnoxious.

When WKMG “upgraded” its comment system, it promised that the new system would be a “safe space.”

Screen Shot 2020-09-01 at 4.31.58 PM

In a story about rioting across the country, I mentioned, and linked to, a video posted by their “sister” station in Detroit, WDIV. The name of the video was “1975 Detroit Crime Special.” I described how the show chronicled the decline of Detroit from the race riots of 1967 to its airing in 1975. According to the show, by 1970, Detroit was done. WKMG removed the comment.

I have also taken great delight in posting Graham Holding Corporation’s (GHC) stock price updates. It has lost nearly half its value in the past year.

Screen Shot 2020-09-01 at 5.16.45 PM

In a story about McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets (of all things), I noticed at the bottom that the story originated at “CNN Newsource.” I commented, among other things, “”CNN Newsource.” And they wonder why we call them fake news. They actually opened a division that does – guess what? – FAKE NEWS!.”

Screen Shot 2020-09-01 at 4.42.19 PM

 

The comment was “contend disabled” later in the day. It now shows as if it is still up as usual. However, in reality, the comment was removed later that day.

WKMG is particularly sensitive about “fake news” and being accused of liberal bias. When conservatives post comments, WKMG tends to allow ad-hominem liberal attacks to remain up while similar conservative comments would be removed.

I have often commented what WKMG and corporate media in general plan to do once President Trump is re-elected and their advertisers finally conclude that if these companies can’t even tell us whom to vote for and what public positions to take, how can they possibly sell us their prescription drugs, hamburgers, shoes, cars, etc.

WKMG has ben just as hostile to President Trump as the rest of corporate media when it comes to Hydroxychloroquine. I often point out a nearly-seven decade old off-patent and cheaply available drug does not buy two minute ad blocks and shower media with billions of dollars annually. Of course, such comments are routinely “disabled.”

I know you're lying

As the “COVID” hoax continues to fall apart and the media sees its credibility crumbling (even more so than before), and as President Trump threatens to not only be re-elected, but to have his Trifecta returned thanks to Trump Democrats, the legacy liberal media is increasingly desperate and will discredit, ridicule, lie and outright censor opposing opinions.

It is clear that WKMG is only running a comment site for the purpose of having its liberal bias validated.

With a population of over 2-million, Orlando’s broadcast television stations all have dismal viewership. However, WKMG is consistently the most dismal when it comes to its 6am and 6pm newscasts. A measly 11,000 people regularly tune into its morning newscast, while even fewer, 8,400 tune in for the evening news. This is less than half of its number one competitors. Obviously, Orlandoans have a distinct distaste for corporate media’s presstitutes and whorespondents, and even more so for Channel 6.

 

Screen Shot 2020-09-01 at 5.04.25 PM

With all corporate media continuing full-steam-ahead with the COVID hoax and having anchors and reporters perform their shows from their living rooms in the name of “social distancing,” it is unlikely their credibility or their ratings  are going to improve any time soon.

Mask Hoax

Associated Press admits “light” and “disinfectant” DO WORK to combat the Corona Virus

Subways sparkle, but does cleaning decrease COVID-19 risk?

Mass transit systems around the world have taken unprecedented — and expensive — steps to curb the spread of the coronavirus, including New York shutting down its subways overnight and testing powerful ultraviolet lamps to disinfect seats, poles and floors.

The cleaning measures produced something commuters have not seen in a while, or possibly ever: thousands of freshly scrubbed cars that look, feel and even smell clean. But experts say those steps solve only part of the problem, and transit officials are studying more advanced methods that might someday automatically disinfect transit systems around the clock.

The Moscow Metro and a public bus company in Shanghai have experimented with germ-killing ultraviolet light. Agencies in Hungary and the Czech Republic have tried using ozone gas as a disinfectant. The public transit system in Dallas tested a “dry fogging” system, and Hong Kong used a robot that sprays a hydrogen peroxide solution, according to a survey by international engineering and professional services firm WSP.

In Chicago, rail cars are cleaned every day before starting service and are prowled at night by crews wearing backpack-style electrostatic sprayers that cover all interior surfaces with disinfectant.

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A man photographed fleeing smoke and debris as the south tower of the World Trade Center crumbled just a block away on Sept. 11, 2001, has died from coronavirus, his family said.

The Palm Beach Post reported that Stephen Cooper, an electrical engineer from New York who lived part-time in the Delray Beach, Florida area, died March 28 at Delray Medical Center due to COVID-19. He was 78.

The censor took issue with:

“Stephen Cooper, an electrical engineer from New York who lived part-time in the Delray Beach, Florida area, died March 28 at Delray Medical Center due to COVID-19. He was 78.”

Well, first of all he was 78.

Secondly, the idol of the left, The Guardian, has reported over 10,000 people (many of them firemen and police officers) became sick from exposure to the asbestos and other toxic substances that came. pouring down in Manhattan on September 11, 2001. Over 1,000 have died.

Corporate media reported Annie Glenn, widow of astronaut and Keating Five senator John Glenn, died at the age of 101 “of Corona Virus.” I mean…come on…really?

This is merely following the CDC’s own “guidelines” to report every person who dies with the Corona Virus, Influenza or Pneumonia inside their body as dying OF that disease.

A lot of people are going to be unhappy when the cops up in Minneapolis are acquitted when the medical examiner reports George Floyd died of COVID.

Sanford, Florida: Gentle Giant, 17, Slain Whilst Car Shopping In Homeowner’s Gated Driveway

Letters To The Beast brings more terrible, sad, tragic news of the passing of yet another Gentle Giant. Seventeen-year-old Adrien Green was cut down in his prime on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 in Sanford, Florida. Green was minding his own business, merely attempting to break into a car and retrieve articles he really, really, really wanted. The car was parked inside the gates of a home on Garrison Drive.

 

While most comments on Orlando’s WKMG Channel 6 were supportive of the homeowner, one commenter, Kinkyjinx took umbrage: Reply to @Jack Hammer: and you are what is wrong with this society. Applauding a childs death when you don’t even know a thing about him and just assuming he is a low-life. This kid was the HS quarterback, bet you didn’t care to even know a thing about him. He is someone’s child. And NOBODY deserves to die over something so stupid as trying to steal a car, that is not a death sentence. Hopefully, someone shoots you in the back.

Your humble correspondent’s attempt to correct Kinkyjinx was memory-holed by WKMG: Reply to @Kinkyjinkx: A 17 year old is not a child. Next thing, you’ll be telling us this Gentle Giant was only looking for a bag of Skittles.

BTW, Welcome to Florida. Messing with someone else or his property IS a death sentence. This ain’t New York.

 

Screenshot_20200505-195607

WKMG, and its censor Viafoura, who also provide memory holing for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, took exception to your correspondent’s attempt to eulogize Mr. Green: Another Gentle Giant.

Having been unable to contact Mr. Green’s mother or father, WKMG quoted his great aunt. Lillian Wright as saying, “We just want right done, justice done, and we will seem (sic) that justice will be done. We need justice on this case because we feel it. Our family was in an uproar this morning — 17 years old,”

It is unknown whether Mr. Green may have been a recent arrival from New York, Chicago, California or some other place where criminals are encouraged to ply their trade while property owners can only watch, lest they be incarcerated instead.

It is also unclear whether the home is owned by George Zimmerman.

Letters To The Beast reminds all young members of the criminal community that committing violent crimes against people and engaging in acts of theft, or even attempting to do so (as in young Mr. Green’s case), is ill-advised in Florida. Or any other Southern state for that matter.

Letters To The Beast will supply any pictures of Mr. Green in sports garb, or of himself when he was 12, as they become available.

Sanford man fatally shoots 17-year-old during burglary attempt in possible stand your ground case, officials say

Case has been turned over to Seminole County State Attorney’s Office

The Sanford Police Department and Seminole County State Attorney’s Office are investigating the deadly shooting of a 17-year-old burglary suspect Tuesday.

Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith addressed members of the media Tuesday afternoon to explain the details of the early morning incident. He said the teen, identified as Adrein Green, was burglarizing cars on the driveway of a gated home on Garrison Drive around 1:12 a.m. when the homeowner opened fire from his front door.

Smith played the 911 calls during the news conference during which the homeowner explains his wife woke him up as she was feeding their infant and heard noises outside of their residence. The caller tells dispatch he believed someone was breaking into his home and grabbed his firearm when he went to investigate.

“(The) man indicated that he was in fear of his life but mostly for his newborn child and his wife who were in the home,” (Seminole County Assistant State Attorney Dan) Faggard said. “We have to find there is probable cause to believe that the individual did not act in self-defense or justifiably. That’s a very high standard. Currently, we’re not able to make that determination and therefore he was not arrested this morning.”

Smith said officers found a large rock and a car battery near the passenger side of the homeowner’s vehicle. He explained marks on windows and the side of the vehicle are indicative of someone attempting to break in. Smith says this evidence leads officers to believe Green had intended to burglarize the vehicle.

Associated Press Bullshit: Michigan militia puts armed protest in the spotlight

Michigan militia puts armed protest in the spotlight

 

Gun-carrying protesters have been a common sight at some demonstrations calling for coronavirus-related restrictions to be lifted. But an armed militia’s involvement in an angry protest in the Michigan statehouse Thursday marked an escalation that drew condemnation and shone a spotlight on the practice of bringing weapons to protest.

The “American Patriot Rally” started on the statehouse steps, where members of the Michigan Liberty Militia stood guard with weapons and tactical gear, their faces partially covered. They later moved inside the Capitol along with several hundred protesters, who demanded to be let onto the House floor, which is prohibited. Some protesters with guns — which are allowed in the statehouse — went to the Senate gallery, where a senator said some armed men shouted at her, and some senators wore bulletproof vests.

“Their faces partially covered.” Yeah, we call those “masks.” You know the things that corporate media has been shaming, bullying and outright forcing many people into wearing? The things that “Doctor” Scarf Lady have been telling us how to make? Clicking on the link details how protesters were allowed into the capitol buildings with their guns, and screen by state police in the process. It also details how masks were required by law. So, in the process of “partially covering their faces,” the protesters were complying with Michigan law, ill-advised as it may be.

For some observers, the images of armed men in tactical gear at a state Capitol were an unsettling symbol of rising tensions in a nation grappling with crisis. Others saw evidence of racial bias in the way the protesters were treated by police.

Those “observers” would be the liberal corporate news media who go into a full blown panic when power is threatened or in any way challenged.

For some politicians, there was fresh evidence of the risk of aligning with a movement with clear ties to far-right groups.

Prominent Michigan Republicans on Friday criticized the showing, with the GOP leader of the state Senate referring to some protesters as “a bunch of jackasses” who “used intimidation and the threat of physical harm to stir up fear and feed rancor.”

Regardless of philosophy, nothing unites politicians more than the spectacle of their club being invaded by the peasants demanding redress of their grievances. While the “prominent Republicans” are not named, conservative Americans’ exasperation with RINOs is what got Donald Trump nominated, then elected, in the first place.

For decades, corporate media has tried to shame conservatives into going along with liberal policies by quoting support from the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Marco Rubio, John Boehner, and other completely useless RINOs masquerading as conservative Republicans.

President Donald Trump, who has been criticized in the past for condoning extremist views, called the protesters “very good people” and urged Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to “make a deal.”

A stealth attempt at race baiting here. But keep reading. It gets better.

Michigan has been the epicenter of the political showdown over how to contain the spread of the deadly virus without decimating the economy. About a quarter of the state’s workforce has filed for unemployment and nearly 4,000 people have died.

The Centers for Disease Control Company has instructed hospitals to state “COVID-19” as cause of death even for people that died WITH the virus, not of it. A person who clearly died after suffering heart attack or a catastrophic injuries sustained in a car wreck didn’t actually die of those injuries. No. Now, he or shoe died of “COVID-19.” The hospital now gets $13,000 from the federal government and the hospital bills are covered as well.

Rally organizer Ryan Kelley said the event was intended to pressure Republicans to reject Whitmer’s plan to continue restrictions on work and travel. He called the protest a “huge win,” noting the Republican-controlled Senate refused to extend Whitmer’s coronavirus emergency declaration — though she said Friday her stay-at-home order remains in effect.

So those Republicans, whom the typist praised just a few paragraphs earlier, rejected the Governor’s efforts nonetheless. And the governor is now clearly acting outside the law.

Kelley, a 38-year-old real estate broker, said he and other organizers are not part of a formal group but represent people who have been harmed by the stay-home order. He said he invited the Michigan Liberty Militia, which is listed as an anti-government group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, to serve as “security.” He suggested anyone who had a problem with their presence should read the Constitution and “live life without fear.”

Now we’re getting to the good part. A growing mass movement of people coming together because of government tyranny. People that, unlike leftists, were too busy working at their jobs in the past. Until governmentS (plural) pulled the rug out from underneath them.

And now, as if on cue, bring in the disgraced and discredited “Southern Poverty Law Center,” a liberal law firm founded by former Klan lawyer and George Wallace campaign worker Morris Dees.

Morris Dees – Wikipedia

Southern Poverty Law Center is a scam, not an arbiter of justice

The Unlabelling of an ‘Anti-Muslim Extremist’; The Southern Poverty Law Center misstepped by including Maajid Nawaz on a 2016 list. But in trying to correct that mistake, it just made a new one.

Dees, of course, was fired by the SPLC for racism and sexual harassment.

Gun-carrying protesters outside state capitols are a regular occurrence in many states, especially in Republican-leaning ones. But rarely do such protests converge at the same time around the country like they have during the coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s take this one-by-one. If “gun-carrying protesters outside state capitols are a regular occurrence…” Then, what’s the problem? And if these are a “regular occurrence in many states, especially in Republican-leaning ones..” Then there must be many states which are Republican leaning. And if protests are occurring in them, many of us must be governed against our will and our consent.”

“But rarely do such protests converge at the same time around the country like they have during the coronavirus pandemic.” It’s amazing how throwing tens of millions of people out of work based on questionable medical advice which has proved to be wrong, presuming to strip us of our God-given rights, ordering us locked down in our homes, making us endure a failed unemployment system where NOBODY is getting paid will cause some people to start having bad thoughts about our ruling masters.

In Wisconsin, about a dozen men, several wearing camouflage, carried what appeared to be assault rifles and other long guns and stood around a makeshift guillotine at a protest attended by about 1,500 people. In Arizona, a group of men armed with rifles were among hundreds of protesters who demonstrated at the Capitol last month demanding Republican Gov. Doug Ducey lift his stay-home order. Many in the crowd also carried holstered pistols.

Oooh. They were wearing scary cloths. And they, maybe, might have been carrying what sort of looks like, (SCREAM!) “ASSAULT RIFLES and other long guns…” Then again, they could have all been carrying Markmen .177s and Daisys.

“…stood around a makeshift guillotine at a protest attended by about 1,500 people” So…this wasn’t a REAL guillotine? It didn’t actually REALLY cut anybody’s head off? So if Marie Antoinette were standing nearby, perhaps eating $20-a-pint gourmet ice cream out of a $40,000 freezer, she would be safe?

How about leftist protests where they “appear to be burning” conservative public figures? Do you get as worked up about that, A.P.? How about Anti-F.A. protesters – wearing masks of course – swinging what appear to be bike locks and smashing what appear to be store windows and looting what appears to be merchandise and attacking what appear to be elderly people? What’s your take on that, Corporate Media?

Gun groups have been involved in organizing several of these protests — which drew activists from a range of conservative causes. Gun rights advocates believe the restrictions on some businesses and closure of government offices are a threat to their right to own a gun, said Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, a group that bills itself as the “no compromise” gun lobby.

Hammond said he routinely gets messages and emails from people around the country, complaining that authorities are making it impossible to exercise their Second Amendment rights. In some cases, that has meant orders closing gun shops or gun ranges or offices shutting down that process permits.

Well, if the gun stores and pawn shops are being ordered closed, and offices where state background checks and permitting are required (which, thank heavens, doesn’t include us here in Florida), and the act of buying weapons and ammunition legally is made impossible because those stores and offices are deemed “non-essential,” that does present a problem, doesn’t it?

But Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, a gun-control group, considers these protests organized by the ultra-right and not necessarily reflective of most gun owners.

Your humble correspondent was wondering when they were going to get around to telling us what Michael Bloomberg thought. Notice how the typist refers to these protests as “ultra-right,” though an opposing label (ie “far-left,” “ultra-left” or “alt-left”) has never been applied by corporate media to the myriad of protests since Donald Trump became President.

While it’s legal to openly carry firearms inside some state capitols, Watts called it “dangerous to normalize this.

As the government crack down on us continues, get used to it honey. It’s only going to get worse (for your side) from here on in.

Armed intimidation has no place in our political debate.” 

What do you call your police enforcers?

She said those carrying guns at protests are almost always white men, and are “a vocal minority of the country” that opposes the stay-at-home orders.

Ohh, not only wearing scary clothes, they were WHITE, too.  And, of course, this is just a MINORITY of gun owners. The rest of you are good, reasonable, compromising people. You go along with what we say. It’s just a few of you kooks. Some of our best friends are gun owners!

Alt Right Group Holds Rally In Portland, Oregon

An overwhelming majority of Americans support stay-at-home orders and other efforts to slow the spread of the virus, according to a recent survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

In other polling news, Hillary Clinton has a 98 per cent chance of being elected President on November 8, 2016. Liberal polling firms paid by liberal media push-polling liberal respondents are certain of it.

The visual of heavily armed protesters, mostly white men, occupying a government building to a measured response by law enforcement is a particularly jarring one for many African Americans.

As we didn’t get the point earlier, it’s those pesky white folk again. The protesters got off easy because the Michigan State Police didn’t kill everybody in sight.

But now, here comes the good part. “particularly jarring…for many African Americans.” (No mention, of course, of how it appeared to Americans born in the United States.”

It draws a stark contrast to the images that emerged from Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, when crowds of unarmed, mostly black men, women and children took to the streets in protest after a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown. Then, National Guardsmen mounted on military vehicles shot tear gas indiscriminately to disperse the crowds, further flaring tensions between the predominantly black community and law enforcement.

Ferguson

Oh, look. They brought the gentle giant who was mowed down whilst his hands were up back to life.  Were the National Guard and Missouri state police before or after the locals attacked other people, burned down homes, business, cars, smashed windows and broke into homes and businesses and looted everything in sight?

Ferguson2

“Systemically, blackness is treated like a more dangerous weapon than a white man’s gun ever will, while whiteness is the greatest shield of safety,” said Brittany Packnett, a prominent national activist who protested in Ferguson.

Had the militia protesters in Michigan behaved the way the “hands up” rioters in Missouri did, the response from the Michigan State Police likely would not have been as “measured.”

The Michigan demonstrators, she added, “are what happens when people of racial privilege confuse oppression with inconvenience. No one is treading on their rights. We’re all just trying to live.”

No, honey. The Michigan demonstrations are what happens when good people gather together peacefully to demand redress of their grievances, make their statements, and then leave and go home. Had the protesters been black, or any other race, the result would not have been any different. The A.P. typists failed to mention if any of the Michigan State Police officers were black.

 

Of course, it’s equally possible that the very presence of guns amongst the Michigan, Wisconsin and Arizona protesters is what helped keep them safe from a police riot in the first place.

Trump, meanwhile, suggested it was Whitmer who should be moved to action.

“The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire,” the president tweeted Friday. “These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.”

Whitmer should take the advice of another Democrat…

In reading the Associated Press’s tale of the Michigan Protests, one might almost get the idea the Michigan State Police weren’t ready to kick off a civil war with the American people, by whom police are outnumbered 300 to 1.  They probably decided, since everybody was behaving themselves and acting within the law, better to save that honor for California, Illinois or New York.

Associated Press reporters David Eggert and Mike Householder in Lansing, Michigan, Lisa Marie Pane in Boise, Idaho, Aaron Morrison in New York and Thomas Beaumont in Des Moines contributed to this report.

A word to our ruling masters: If we all got back to work, those of us who actually do the work wouldn’t have the time nor the inclination to go out and protest the loss of our livelihoods. Maybe government throwing millions of us out of work wasn’t exactly the wisest course of action. Especially when we own hundreds of millions of guns.
