David Horowitz: Anatomy of a Lynching/The political uses of race.

by David Horowitz

Editor/Writer’s note: Anti-white racism and generalized ignorance so permeate our media elites and elected officials today that some common sense reminders are in order. Lynching – named after a Judge Lynch – was a form of Alice-in-Wonderland Frontier Justice: first comes the verdict and the punishment, then the trial.

Although a repugnant racial dimension eventually entered into its practice it was carried out against criminals — white as well as black — whose victims lynch mobs feared would not get justice in the courts. One third of all lynch victims were white. Impatience with due process is endemic to the progressive Left, the #MeToo mobs, the Destroy-Brett-Kavanaugh-Feminists and the Remove-President-Trump-Democrats. Why hold Star Chamber impeachment “inquiries” where the president has no rights if their purpose is really to inquire rather than what it obviously is — to convict and punish?
Below we are reprinting a Frontpage article by David Horowitz about how he learned the truth about the most famous lynching of all, and discovered what its real political agendas were. We are also linking a talk he gave on “progressive racism” which is in effect the lynching mentality of our time.

According to President Obama racism is “part of the DNA” of America, transmitted through the generations from its origins right to the present.  This statement is perhaps the most malicious libel ever uttered by an American president against his own country. It is true that racism became one of the rationales for slavery, an institution America inherited from the British Empire before abolishing it. But slavery existed in Africa for a thousand years before a white person ever set foot there, and for 3,000 years in all societies. It is what peoples of all races and ethnicities imposed on their enemies when they conquered them. Moreover, for 3,000 years no one declared slavery to be immoral – not Aristotle, not Moses, not Jesus, not the African slavers – until white Protestant Christians in England did so towards the end of the 18th Century. At that time, in Britain’s North American colonies a white slave owner named Thomas Jefferson wrote into the birth certificate of a new nation the proposition that liberty is a God-given right, which government cannot take away – and equality too. Within little more than a generation, and at the cost of 350,000 Union lives, slavery was abolished in America, and then rapidly throughout the Western hemisphere.

In other words, every black person alive in this country today owes his or her freedom to America – to the Americans who conceived this nation in liberty and gave their lives to make it so. That is the true DNA of America: liberty, not racism. An unappreciated effect of Obama’s libel is to persuade large numbers of black Americans that it is true, and thus to alienate them from their own country and make them feel like outsiders in a land whose heritage they are a part of. Black people are as American as any race or ethnicity who came or were brought to these shores. They arrived in 1619, before the Mayflower and have been an essential part of America’s culture and history ever since.

Sometimes it takes years to ingest so crucial a fact. Sometimes, even a lifetime is insufficient as President Obama has shown. Even then, the knowledge can be lost through the ignorance or prejudice of the next generations. In the 1960s radicals rallied around the slogan, “You can’t trust anyone over 30,” which was an expression of youthful arrogance and poor judgment. Because youth lack real world experience, the slogan “Be cautious about the conclusions of anyone under 30” would have been a more reasonable counsel.

When I was eleven years old, a book came into our progressive household titled We Charge Genocide. It was published by an organization calling itself the Civil Rights Congress and was a book-length petition calling on the United Nations to condemn the United States for conducting genocide against American Negroes (as they were then referred to). The frontispiece to the book featured a photograph of a lynching that took place in Indiana in August 1930. It was, in fact, the most famous photograph of a lynching, one that was the direct inspiration for Strange Fruit, Billie Holliday’s elegy for the victims. The photograph shows two black men hanging from the limbs of a tree surrounded by a crowd of whites. One man facing the camera points at the hanging bodies with a ghoulish grin.  Everybody who has seen any picture of a lynching has probably seen this photograph.

The image is horrifying but it took me more than 10 years before I had read enough to understand that lynching was actually not devised for black people. To be sure, as practiced, there was a racial dimension to lynching, and an evil one.  But in its origins lynching had no racial dimension. It was just frontier justice – “Let’s not waste time with trials and get on with the punishment.” In the course of my reading I also learned that a third of all known lynching victims – more than a thousand – were white. This tells us two important things: First, that lynching wasn’t just a practice against black people, and second that the victims were punished because they had allegedly committed crimes worthy of hanging. In other words, most lynchings were not about mobs of white racists grabbing black people and stringing them up because of their skin color. They were extra-judicial hangings to punish people for serious crimes of which they had been accused. This is not to say that racial prejudice was not an important factor, as evident in the fact that two-thirds of the lynching victims were black. There were probably prejudicial aspects to the cases where whites were targeted as well, though less obvious and fewer. That is why we provide due process to all as a constitutional right. In any case, the photograph of one lynching or many is not evidence of genocide.

The two men hanged in the famous photograph in We Charge Genocide were named Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith. A third man with them, James Cameron, who was sixteen and also black was not lynched. The three had been arrested, after being accused of murdering a young white factory worker and raping his girlfriend. A mob 2,000 strong had broken into the jail where they were being held, and taken the three men out, and then hanged Shipp and Smith from the tree.
I learned these facts by accident nearly fifty years after I first saw the photograph. I had tuned into a National Public Radio program on which James Cameron, who was then an old man, was being interviewed about what had taken place. According to Cameron, Shipp and Smith had actually committed the murder they were accused of. As for the rape, the white woman who was the alleged victim said afterwards that she had not been raped. So the rape charge was spurious. But the murder charge was not. This does not make the lynching right, but it does call into question whether there was a racial dimension to this incident after all.

Why didn’t the lynch mob hang James Cameron, who was also black and who was accused of the same crime? The answer is that Cameron claimed he didn’t want to participate in the robbery and murder, and stayed in the car. It is possible that he would have been hanged by the lynch mob anyway but the reason he wasn’t was this:  A member of the lynch mob, a white man, stood up for him and affirmed his innocence. Afterwards, Cameron was tried in court and convicted of being an accessory to the crime before the fact. He served four years in prison, and then spent the rest of his life fighting for civil rights, founding three chapters of the NAACP in Indiana. In 1991, the State of Indiana pardoned him. One can find all this out on Wikipedia, if one just looks up “Marion Indiana lynching.”

We Charge Genocide featured the photograph of this lynching as a symbol of America’s racism – of its genocidal white racism. But once the facts are known, this claim is shown to be an unscrupulous misrepresentation of a troubled but more complicated reality. Other facts complicate it more. The genocide petition was presented to the U.N. in December 1951. But at this time a great civil rights revolution in America had already begun, in large part because Americans had just defeated an enemy dedicated to the idea of a “master race.” The conscience of a nation had been awakened, and racial barriers had begun to fall. In 1947 the military was integrated along with the civil service, and Jackie Robinson became the first black athlete allowed to participate in America’s national sport. It was only a couple of years before Brown v. Board of Education integrated the nation’s school systems, and only a few more before segregation and racial discrimination were banned by the Civil Rights Acts.

So why the charge of genocide – a campaign to exterminate an entire people – since it is obviously a malicious libel? It took me 40 years to put together all the facts to arrive at the answer: The Civil Rights Congress, the organization responsible for the petition, was a Communist Party front, and thus the genocide campaign was designed by people who wanted to create a “Soviet America” and help Russia – America’s mortal enemy – to win the Cold War. The extent of Moscow’s control of the American Communist Party was something that the world only learned as a result of the opening of the Soviet archives after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

At the same time the We Charge Genocide petition was being put together, Moscow was conducting a series of arrests in its East European satellites, followed by purge trials and executions many of whose targets were Jews. In Czechoslovakia these purges climaxed in a show trial of the top leaders of the Czech Communist Party who were accused of being part of a “Trotskyite-Titoite-Zionist conspiracy.” Of the thirteen Czech leaders hanged, eleven were Jews, which prompted an international outcry in which the Kremlin was accused of anti-Semitism, a charge it was desperate to counteract. In other words, the “We Charge Genocide” campaign was not about black Americans at all. It was about using blacks as a battering ram against the United States as part of a Kremlin effort to neutralize the bad publicity Moscow was getting for its purges of Jews in Eastern Europe, which then spread to the Soviet Union itself.

The use of blacks as a battering ram against opponents of the left is a progressive tradition that lives on today in the Democratic Party, and the latest version of the Civil Rights Congress is the heavily funded organization called Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter is officially endorsed by the Democratic Party and Democratic funders like George Soros have raised tens of millions of dollars to create a professional army to support its divisive mission. A month before the 2016 elections 100 of Black Lives Matter activists gathered at the University of California Irvine to attack the Los Angeles police department with this chant: “LAPD what you say? How many people have you killed today? LAPD you can’t hide. We charge you with genocide.”

The protest was one of hundreds in the last couple of years conducted across the nation to attack police departments for an alleged “genocidal” war against blacks. There is no factual basis for this charge. According to the Washington Post, for example, police shootings make up 12% of all white and Hispanic homicide deaths, which is three times the proportion of black deaths resulting from police shootings. According to FBI data, over the last 10 years 40% of cop killers have been black, while police officers are killed by blacks at a rate 2.5 times higher  than the rate at which blacks are killed by police.

Equally preposterous is Black Lives Matter’s claim – echoed by many Democrats – that America is a “white supremacist” nation. This is a racist claim, implicating all whites, and particularly absurd since America – now completing the two terms of a black presidency – is perhaps the most tolerant nation on earth. Since the 1990s, America has had two black Secretaries of State, a black Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, three black heads of the National Security Council, and thousands of black elected officials at state and municipal levels. Major American cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia and Baltimore are run by blacks, and many more are governed by black mayors, black police chiefs, black judges, non-white majority city councils and black superintendents of schools. How ironic that more than half a century after the end of segregation and the passage of the Civil Rights Acts, after the integration of America’s military and schools and popular culture, this racist incitement should be the emblem of a movement for “social justice.”

Jesse Lee Peterson: LATEST DEMOCRAT TO EXPLOIT THE POOR

Jesse Lee Peterson slams blacks who elect politicians based on race

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh may be going to prison.

The 69-year-old liberal black Democrat is under investigation and facing corruption allegations after she received hundreds of thousands of dollars for her self-published “Healthy Holly” children’s books from major health care companies with deep ties to the city of Baltimore.

Agents from the Baltimore FBI office and the IRS executed search warrants on Catherine Pugh’s homes, city hall, her lawyer’s office, and six other locations.

As reported by the Baltimore Sun, the University of Maryland Medical System spent $500,000 for 100,000 copies of Pugh’s “Healthy Holly” book series in a no-bid arrangement while she sat on the system’s board of directors. The University of Maryland Medical System is a private nonprofit that operates 13 hospitals and 150 other health facilities in Maryland.

That wasn’t all. Pugh also had a similar deal with healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente between 2015 and 2018 while the company was trying to negotiate a contract with the city’s spending panel to provide coverage to city employees. Afterwards, the panel approved a $48 million contract. The Baltimore Sun reported the mayor did not recuse herself from the vote despite the apparent conflict of interest.

Other charities and businesses in Baltimore also reportedly paid tens of thousands of dollars for “Healthy Holly” books. Mayor Pugh reportedly earned some $800,000 from sales! The arrangement was supposed to distribute books to low-income daycare centers and school libraries, but there’s little evidence to show the books were delivered to classrooms. Pugh was getting paid, but it wasn’t for the children’s book.

Now, outraged Baltimore residents and city council members are demanding accountability and answers from the mayor. The Baltimore City Council (made up of Democrats) is united in calling for Catherine Pugh step down as mayor. Gov. Larry Hogan (a Republican) is also demanding that the embattled mayor resign.

“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership,” Gov. Hogan said in a statement. “Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead.”

So far, Catherine Pugh has refused to step down, and she has gone into hiding. In fact, the mayor has been on paid leave since April 1, citing a case of pneumonia.

Liberal black Democrats like Catherine Pugh assume power by campaigning on themes like “reform” and “economic opportunity” for depressed inner-city communities, but ultimately they are seeking power and wealth for themselves. They don’t care about their constituents. These power-hungry black Democrats use their race and gender to get into office; and once elected, they use their position to steal and get rich.

If Catherine Pugh were white, she would be in jail right now! It is impossible for a white politician to commit the fraud Mayor Catherine Pugh is alleged to have perpetrated for years and still be free. I’m sure the only reason we are hearing about Pugh’s corruption is because it’s so egregious and blatant.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

There is a long list of Democrat mayors and politicians convicted of corruption, theft and fraud. Two of the most notorious black Democrats are Ray Nagin of New Orleans and Kwame Kilpatrick of Detroit.

Black Democrats have a sense of entitlement. Black female Democrats are especially shameless and feel unassailable because they have been getting away with using their race and gender to do outrageous things, including blatant crimes. And when these no-good liberal Democrats are caught or questioned about their illegal and immoral activities, they immediately blame “racism” to quash and silence disapproval from the law and whites.

The last three mayors of Baltimore have all been liberal black female Democrats, and they have all been dreadful.

This is the second time in a decade that a Baltimore mayor has faced corruption allegations.

Mayor Shelia Dixon was forced to resign in 2010 after she was found guilty of embezzlement and theft.

Then there’s Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the disgraced former mayor of Baltimore who sided with rioters against police after the death of drug dealer Freddie Gray in 2015. Rawlings-Blake and the incompetent State Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby falsely led the public to believe that Gray was murdered by police. Blake and Mosby allowed Black Lives Matter activists to riot and loot businesses in the city. At the height of the riots, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told police to give black people room to destroy! In the end, charges were dropped against the police officers in the Freddie Gray case, but Rawlings-Blake and Mosby were never held accountable for what they did to the city. What a shame!

Most black Democrats are corrupt, and they seek political power in order to enrich themselves. It’s not “racism” that has destroyed our inner cities – it’s the Democrats, especially corrupt black Democrats.

It’s time for blacks to stop electing politicians based on race and elect their representatives based on merit and character. That is the only way to ensure real change and end the corruption in these Democrat controlled hell-holes.

Jesse Lee Peterson: WHY CHRISTIANS ARE LOSING THEIR COUNTRY

Jesse Lee Peterson blasts left for attacking people for telling truth

by Jesse Lee Peterson

America is a Christian nation, but that fact has been under attack by the children of the lie. The left has pushed immorality to the point we have so-called “same-sex marriage” and “transgender” nonsense trampling the rights of Christians. “People of color” and “women” join the attack on freedom of speech and our rights to self-defense. Good people are accused of “hate speech,” punished for telling the truth in public – or even in private!

Christians, men and especially white people are under attack. Christians are forced to bake “gay cakes” for homosexuals pretending to get “married.” Men are falsely accused of “sexual harassment,” “sexual assault” or of being “child molesters” – and they’re not allowed to say the women are lying! Children are abused by women, even killed in the womb, and the man can’t do anything to protect his children. White people are called “racist” just for loving their country, for telling the truth about “people of color,” or for standing up for white people.

A decade ago, the fallen messiah Barack Obama claimed America is “no longer a Christian nation.” He pushed homosexuality and transgender madness, and took up for Muslims at every opportunity. He was the first “feminist” president, and loved abortion.

Obama attacked whites and police, making blacks feel justified in their anger and false victimhood. He brought Black Lives Matter to the White House – a group worse than the KKK, founded by black lesbians, homosexuals and white “social justice warriors.” They killed the souls of black people by pushing anger, and their attacks on police resulted in an increase in murders around the country.

You cannot be a Christian and support the Democrat Party. After Obama, they’ve only grown more radical, electing far-left Muslims, homosexuals, and women – in order to attack a real men, President Trump. Donald Trump represents everything they hate – the goodness of America. The straight, white, conservative, Christian man of power built this country. But leftists don’t want America to be made great again, so they go after all males, white people, and Christians in order to take down Trump.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

This week, they went after Democrat Joe Biden – Obama’s vice president. They accused him of sexual harassment with no proof. For years, Biden openly kissed and tried to flatter women and little girls in front of cameras – never trying to hide it. But now people impulsively judge him as “creepy,” watching suggestively edited videos that play on the imagination and people’s anti-male brainwashing. In the old days, men warned you to believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

But Biden as a hated “white male” is not welcome in the Democrat Party. They want a woman or a “person of color” to run for president.

Men have been trained by women to show affection, to worship women, make them feel special – but only with “consent.” Meanwhile, women throw themselves on men, hug and kiss men without permission, sexually assault them, and even rape men and young boys. Even Christians join in on this double-standard, in which every man is a suspected “rapist” or “child molester.” At our recent Men’s Forum at my nonprofit BOND, a home contractor said he wears a camera on himself all day to prevent being accused!

The city of Chicago recently elected a black lesbian for mayor. She’s pretending she will end the corruption in the city. But she herself is morally corrupt – she has no values. She’ll go after the Christians, white people and men, and only further destroy the city.

There are homosexuals who are stuck in that lifestyle but know it’s wrong. But this new mayor-elect, Lori Lightfoot, is promoting wrong as right. Similarly, Pete Buttigieg, a homosexual millennial mayorof South Bend, Indiana, is trying to run for president. The corrupt liberal media love him for being shamelessly homosexual. The former mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, is a lesbian with a pretend “wife.” Females on the Supreme Court and in Congress have conducted so-called same-sex “weddings.”

In Ireland, they have a homosexual prime minister who brought his gay “partner” to America for an official event with Vice President Mike Pence. This man, Leo Varadkar, gave a slap in the face to Christians, speaking against “discrimination.” The radical homosexuals are allowed to discriminate against Christians, but not the other way around. There is no freedom.

Christians have lost their countries because Christians are no longer any different from the world. They believe that they can be born again of God and continue to sin. The men are controlled by women – they kiss up to women in their personal lives and in politics. The whites are afraid to tell the truth to the people of color. The Christians have anger in their hearts, playing God – there’s no love in anger, but only fear, doubt, worry and insecurity. Christian parents are sacrificing their children to corrupt schools where kids come out liberal, turning away from God.

If you want your country to be right, you have to be right. As Christ said, you must become perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect.

Jesse Lee Peterson: The Real Enemies of the People

by Jesse Lee Peterson

For the past 28 years, I’ve worked to wake up people across America and the world. Most are in a fallen state and don’t know it. Fathers are weak or absent, mothers are angry, and children disconnected from fathers and disconnected from God.

You will never know God unless you love your fellow man, beginning with your father.

Because men are weak, women have gone out of control. Together they’ve created excuses, a false religion in which “nobody’s perfect,” accepting wrong as right. Children grow up lost, and in some cases reject Christianity entirely.

Christ called out hypocrites who refused to enter the Kingdom of Heaven themselves – and sought to prevent others from doing so. This same hypocrisy goes on today in the world, with failing parents, deceptive false authority, “experts” and phony preachers. It’s especially ridiculous among “black leaders” and other liberals. But whites and “conservative” Christians are not innocent, which is why our country has sunken to the depths it has. Until Trump, the country was nearly swallowed up by evil. He’s standing against the madness, and now evil is desperate.

Everyone can see how insane the liberals, especially “black leaders,” have become. Many of them pretend to believe in God, but vote for the party of violence, lies, hate and abortion. The Democratic Party is evil, and anyone who votes for Democrats supports evil. When asked why, they point to Republican so-called “racism,” “sexism” or some other made-up “-ism.” They bring false accusations against Trump, and attack straight, white, conservative, Christian men – especially those of power. Liberals tout their phony compassion toward the “poor,” “minorities,” “women” and “children” – but only when the cause favors wrongdoing. They push injustice and call it “justice.”

We’ve all seen how extreme and evil the media is – CNN, New York Times, Washington Post and other leftwing outlets. They hate President Trump, a simple, strong white man who tells the truth and loves America. But they loved Obama, the feminist president who never stopped lying since he ran for president, who hates America. These liberals fanned the flames of the Black Lives Matter riots and cop-killings, but called the agitators “mostly peaceful.” The media support the violent communist Antifa thugs, uncritically calling them “anti-racist” or “anti-fascist.”

The media and liberals manipulate language to seduce blind people. They support illegal aliens, calling them “undocumented immigrants.” They welcome third-world Democrat-leaning Muslims as “refugees.” But they call the murder of white South African natives “fake news.” They support radical homosexuals pushing so-called “marriage equality” or “LGBTQ rights” (both phony, deceptive, destructive ideas). They paint pro-abortion radicals as “pro-choice” for “reproductive rights,” and downplay the ongoing holocaust of unborn children. But they call pro-lifers “anti-abortion rights” (as though being against killing babies in the womb is negative or oppressive).

They call whites “neo-Nazis,” men “rapists,” and non-leftists “far-right.” To them, a non-liberal who defends himself is “violent” and anyone who tells the truth is a “bigot.”

They’re no longer journalists, but activists – joining forces with the Democrats against America – truly the enemy of the people, as Trump said.

The mainstream media still cite the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a credible source. The SPLC is a far-left “nonprofit” organization pretending to track “hate” – primarily attacking outspoken whites and Christians. They inspired a terror attack on Family Research Council by putting them on their “hate map” for being “anti-gay.”

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

The SPLC recently labeled Proud Boys as a “hate group.” Proud Boys are a fraternity headed by talk show host Gavin McInnes, founded to promote pride in Western Civilization. Proud Boys typically show up to protect Trump supporters and free speech advocates at rallies. The media call the Proud Boys “violent” for getting into fights with Antifa’s “masked protestors.” The left don’t care that Antifa vandalizes property and attack people at events – including law enforcement and anyone with a camera.

Neither the SPLC, the liberal media, nor the Democratic Party has any authority on what constitutes “hate.” They themselves are full of lies and hatred. They have no love.

People who lack love don’t have real power – or truth. They only have intimidation and seduction. Unfortunately, many who want what’s right have been intimidated and seduced by the children of the lie. I’ve watched conservatives kiss up to women, blacks and “minorities” as though they deserve special treatment – afraid of being called “racist” or “sexist.” I’ve also witnessed many young people frustrated by this hypocrisy and injustice, taking the opposite extreme. They openly hate and blame women, Jews and even Baby Boomers. In anger, people get into the knowledge of good and evil, and Satan leads them by their intellect into darkness.

I am warning you, if you want to overcome evil, you cannot go with blame. People who blame are defeated – victims, pathetic losers and beta males. If you don’t forgive, God won’t forgive you, and you’ll be overtaken by evil.

President Trump is defeating his enemies because he deals with challenges perfectly, telling the truth with no fear or anger. Let’s have faith and do the same.

 

Jesse Lee Peterson: HERE’S THE ANTIDOTE TO ST. LOUIS RIOTS AND RAGE

HERE’S THE ANTIDOTE TO ST. LOUIS RIOTS AND RAGE- Jesse Lee Peterson exposes ‘real enemy’ of black Americans

by Jesse Lee Peterson

The more you give in to angry people, the worse they get. Case in point: black protesters in St. Louis, Missouri. Violent Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with police after ex-St. Louis cop Jason Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of drug dealer Anthony Lamar-Smith.

Smith was attempting to flee from police when he slammed his vehicle into a police cruiser and took off, causing a dangerous high-speed chase. Stockley, who is white, claimed he shot the suspect, who is black, in self-defense because he thought Smith was reaching for a gun.

According to St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson, the prosecutors failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Officer Stockley did not act in self-defense. Smith was out on parole for convictions of drug distribution, theft and illegal gun possession at the time of the shooting.

But facts don’t matter to angry blacks. The acquittal of Stockley gave Black Lives Matter license to riot and assault police. What began as a protest march erupted with a wild mob tearing through downtown St. Louis and through the city’s affluent areas. Protesters said they wanted whites to feel the pain.

Protesters burned American flags, damaged police cruisers and destroyed businesses. At least 10 officers were assaulted with bricks and bottles; 23 suspects were arrested. The violence caused local businesses to cancel major venues. Protesters also temporarily shut down a major mall in St. Louis. They chanted, “You kill one of us, we kill your economy,” and they carried Black Lives Matters signs.

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, a liberal Democrat, said in a statement that she is “appalled” by what happened to Smith and she is “sobered by this outcome.” She wrote, “I will continue my work to create a more equitable community.”

Her attempt to pacify the mob failed. Late in the evening, approximately 1,000 protesters descended on the mayor’s home, breaking windows and splattering red paint on it. Police eventually used tear gas to disperse the mob.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

The head of the St. Louis City NAACP, Adolphus M. Pruitt, asked President Trump and the Justice Department to immediately review Stockley’s acquittal. The NAACP said the community has lost faith in local authorities to fairly handle such cases.

Republican Gov. Eric Greitens was highly critical during his 2016 campaign of how former liberal Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon allowed the Ferguson protests to devolve into full-on riots after Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot 18-year-old thug Michael Brown in self-defense.

In advance of the Stockley acquittal, Gov. Greitens reportedly met with Anthony Lamar-Smith’s fiancée, black state lawmakers, black St. Louis ministers and law enforcement in the hopes of projecting a message that peaceful protest would be tolerated but violence wouldn’t. Greitens, a decorated former Navy SEAL, wisely put the National Guard on standby, and some troops were deployed to guard “critical infrastructure.”

Even though the Republican governor was pro-active in reaching out to black leaders, they did nothing to help calm the situation. Why? Because these people don’t want peace. They identify more with Black Lives Matter than they do with decent whites and police. They don’t want a solution; they want revenge against whites.

The NAACP and so-called black “leaders” have inflamed racial tensions for years by falsely screaming “racism” any time a white officer is involved in the shooting of a black suspect. They never tell the truth about dangerous criminals like Anthony Lamar-Smith, Michael Brown, and other black thugs who caused their own deaths. They get power and wealth by promoting racial division, and they will never hold the thugs accountable.

Meanwhile, there’s a major debate on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA – Obama’s back-door plan to give 900,000 “Dreamers” (illegal aliens) amnesty. The so-called “Dreamers” are demanding amnesty now. If Republicans give in, amnesty will have a devastating impact on black employment, schools and on their quality of life. Yet the NAACP, Urban League and the Congressional Black Caucus support amnesty! With the exception of a few black conservatives, no one in the black community is sounding the alarm about this looming catastrophe.

Blacks are oblivious; they’re busy defending spoiled and privileged SJW idiots Colin Kaepernick and ESPN commentator Jemele Hill.

Liberal politicians are welcoming illegal aliens and fighting President Trump’s effort to secure the border and deport them. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti want “sanctuary cities” to protect illegals regardless of their criminal history while ignoring their black constituents. The public schools in Chicago are war zones. Drugs and crime are out of control, and there are no black men with courage to stop the destruction.

As a result, blacks are fleeing Chicago and Los Angeles in droves. New Census data show Chicago’s Hispanic population surged by 17,000 in a one-year period, making Hispanics the second-largest ethnic group in the city. Meanwhile, the black population is shrinking, with 42,000 moving out due to violence and lack of jobs.

The rage in the black community is palpable, but it’s misdirected. Instead of blaming cops, whites and President Trump, blacks need to get their act together and drop their rage, which is blinding them from seeing the real enemy and how Democrats are exploiting them.

Chilling Peek Inside John McCain’s Wicked Heart- Jesse Lee Peterson exposes senator who ‘fooled public, pretended to be Republican’

by Jesse Lee Peterson

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9

Sen. John McCain is at it again!

Sen. McCain recently wrote a scathing column for the Washington Post attacking President Donald Trump as “poorly informed” and “impulsive.” McCain stated, “We are not his subordinates. … we don’t answer to him.”

The Arizona senator also called for compromise on a litany of important items, including on Trump’s campaign promise to build a “big, beautiful wall.” McCain wrote that “a literal wall might not be the most effective means” to secure the border. Instead, he wants a “comprehensive” bill Democrats can get behind.

John McCain is losing it! Or, perhaps this is the real McCain finally coming out. During his 30 years in the Senate, McCain has fooled the public and pretended to be a conservative Republican. The fake news media have depicted him as a “maverick” who isn’t afraid to stand up to his own party. But McCain has always been a RINO, and he is not an honorable man. The election of President Trump is exposing his true nature and lack of character.

McCain, 81, is a Navy veteran who spent five-and-a-half years as a prisoner of war in the Vietnam War, and he has never gotten over Donald Trump mocking him as “not a war hero” during the 2016 campaign. He needs to get over his anger before he passes from this earth.

What do YOU think? What is your opinion of Sen. John McCain? Sound off in the WND Poll!

With the encouragement of President Trump, millions of Americans wished McCain well and prayed for his recovery after he was diagnosed with brain cancer in late July, only to be betrayed by him when he joined with liberal Republicans to defeat the GOP’s “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. McCain’s vote against the bill delivered a major setback for Republicans. The vote also robbed Trump of his first major legislative victory.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he had been in constant contact with McCain leading up to the betrayal vote.

McCain has also attacked Trump over the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. He condemned the president for his statement, even though Trump’s initial statement disavowing hate and violence “on many sides” was spot on. That didn’t stop McCain.

He tweeted: “There’s no moral equivalency between racists and Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry. The president of the United States should say so.”

According to McCain, the true Americans are Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the people who started and escalated the violence.

McCain also had the audacity to attack Trump for pardoning legendary Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio – who is beloved by the people of Arizona. Everyone knows the investigation into Sheriff Joe was a political witch hunt by Obama cronies in the Department of Justice. They wanted to make an example of the sheriff for supporting Trump and for enforcing immigration laws. McCain knows this, but his judgment is clouded by his anger toward Trump.

McCain is the consummate compromiser. According to the Arizona Republic, McCain reportedly spoke to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer about joining forces again to pass the “Gang of Eight” bill – an awful, far-reaching 2013 bill that offered amnesty and citizenship to illegal aliens.

McCain was nowhere to be found while conservatives organized under the tea-party banner to fight Barack Obama’s out-of-control spending and attack on the Constitution. McCain referred to tea-party supporters as “hobbits”!

With his unrelenting attack against Trump, McCain is revealing himself, and he doesn’t even realize it.

We have a great president who is working hard to make “America Great Again,” and this cowardly RINO is fighting against him and against the good people in this country. Arizonans, I blame you, because you had a chance to get rid of this man, but you voted for him over and over again.

I recall when John McCain spoke in Southern California in 2008 during his presidential run against Obama. I thought he was a good guy. I voted for him because he presented himself as a conservative who loved his country and the military – I didn’t know he was a RINO!

McCain is not the only RINO being exposed. Many others have been unmasked.

Despite his boyish smile and talk of “conservatism,” I don’t trust House Speaker Paul Ryan. He is too quick to condemn the president – like he did with his recent remarks slamming Trump over his Charlottesville statement. Ryan appeared at a CNN forum and said Trump’s initial statement was “wrong,” and, “It was not only morally ambiguous, it was equivocating.”

And Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said, “[The] president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.”

We the people must be aware and remain vigilant so, when we vote in 2018 and beyond, we elect real conservatives. We need to stand back and pay attention to what’s going on so we are not deceived. The betrayal by John McCain and other RINOs is an opportunity to wake up and change so we don’t repeat the same mistakes.

Civil War Coming to America?

Civil War Coming to America?“The complicity of the left to destroy America knows no limits.”

by Bill Lockwood

Communists have threatened to bring Civil War to America for decades. Now it seems they are on the brink of doing so. The black community, after enjoying a black president, are more hate-filled than ever. They are stirred and agitated. Everything offends them. On another front, student activists rage in the streets. Civil unrest and open threats against the President of the United States are the order of the day. Civility be hanged.

A state Democratic Senator from Missouri, Maria Chappell-Nadal posted on Facebook “I hope Trump is assassinated!” in response to what she believed was an improper response by President Trump to violence in Charlottesville, VA. She refuses to resign.

Communist Van Jones, who by orientation belongs to a world-view which designs violent revolution for America and who is therefore a center-piece for CNN, dramatized tears that President Trump did not follow the liberal script and blame only “right-wingers” for what occurred in Charlottesville. Agitation is the name of the game.

Ever the pink supporters, Hollywood actors also stoked the fires among the ignorant and simple-minded. Rob Reiner, for example, tweeted: “Let’s be clear. The hatred we’re seeing in Virginia lies at the feet of Donald Trump. Stoked during the campaign his silence condones this.” Reiner is just one of many communist sympathizers in Hollywood.

Aided and abetted by the Mainstream Media, this is all pressure from above.

Pressure from below is also building. As reported by Andrew West (Constitution.com, Aug. 22) the boiler plates are being turned up as the Antifa movement “prepares for an all out assault on America” in November.

 Alt-left agitators are planning to stage mass riots in major cities on November 4 during which they hope to instigate a ‘civil war’ that will lead to the ‘regime change’ of the Trump administration.

Demonstrations are planned for cities across the country, including New York City, Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.”

A glance at the Revolutionary Communist (revcom.us) website show the featured diatribe by Andy Zee in which revolutionary action is advocated for Antifa sympathizers.

What Exactly is Antifa?

Antifa is short for “anti-fascist.” It is an anti-government, anti-capitalist, anarchist movement which aligns with communism. Their protests purposefully foment violence. According to researcher Jerome Corsi, its roots trace back to the Weimar Republic in Germany and owes its birth to the Communist Party’s opposition to the Nazi fascist movement of post-World War I Germany.

Corsi points the reader to Jonah Goldberg’s 2008 excellent book, Liberal Fascism. Goldberg explains that communists and fascists are closely related. They are “historical competitors for the same constituents.” The Antifa movement is a return to the communist paramilitary riot tactics that “developed to fight the Brownshirts of the Weimar Republic.”

Noteworthy it is that Antifa has been declared a terrorist organization by the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security (June 12, 2017). The New Jersey authorities point out that Antifa is a subset of the anarchist movement “with the goal of rubbing raw social and class tensions in order to de-legitimize the U.S. Constitution.” Its goal is the establishment of a communist state in America.

Damning evidence it is that the mainstream media and the entire establishment, including the likes of Condoleeza Rice, focused entirely on the so-called “right” of the Charlottesville, VA violence—totally and purposefully ignoring the Antifa movement that was involved.

Revcom.us

In keeping with the communist pedigree of Antifa, the Revcom.us website writer Andy Zee recommends books authored by the chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, Bob Avakian. Avakian’s books are   The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy… And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer and The Coming Civil War.

Avakian is further lionized by West as the “architect of the new synthesis of communism.” In keeping with this, revcom.us calls agitators to “Take to the streets and Public Squares” on November 4! They promise this will continue “day after day and night after night” until “our DEMAND is met.”

What is their demand? Because of such things as “immigrants living in terror;” “Muslims and refugees demonized and banned and cast out;” “women … denied the basic right to control their own reproduction;” “LGBTQ people stigmatized, ostracized and denied civil rights recently won;” and “the whole planet in peril from a regime that denies global warming and shreds all environmental protections”—a “qualitative change” in America is necessary. Says revcom.us: “This nightmare must end: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”

In part, stirred by these same type of communist threats, the mayor of Phoenix, AZ, Greg Stanton, a Democrat, is pleading for Trump to “stay away” from the capital of Arizona.

The complicity of the left to destroy America knows no limits. One cannot even begin to imagine the Mayor of any town in the United States pleading with Barack Obama to “stay away” from their city during or after his presidency due to opposition from the right. Every journalist and public official would have publicly gagged on television at such an idea while calling for the head of any person who so recommended. “We must have free speech!”

All of this causes one to realize why it was the Democratic Party which so hated the now defunct House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) which operated between 1938 to 1975. It continually exposed public leaders who held “anti-American” views. Its demise allowed communism to grow unimpeded with no exposure until it has verily taken over the entire Left in America, which not only calls for street revolution, but now tweets for open assassination of our president.

Jesse Lee Peterson: I’m black – and I support Confederate monuments 100 percent

I’m Black – and I support Confederate Monuments 100 Percent- Jesse Lee Peterson calls on Americans to ‘speak up, fight back without hate’

by Jesse Lee Peterson

In the wake of the Charlottesville, Virginia, tragedy, which began in part as a rally to protect a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, the left has seized the crisis to smear President Donald Trump. The president is being unfairly accused of sympathizing with white supremacists. His supporters are being lumped in with neo-Nazis, and left-wing thugs recently shut down a “free-speech” rally in Boston.

Using the violence in Charlottesville as an excuse, leftists are also desecrating and tearing down Confederate monuments. Gutless Democratic and Republican politicians have been intimidated into removing dozens of Confederate monuments and statues across the country. The Baltimore City Council and mayor had four Confederate monuments removed overnight under the cover of darkness. Cowards!

Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters pulled down and destroyed a statue of a Confederate soldier in front of the Durham County Courthouse in Durham, North Carolina, which had stood since 1924. Publicity hound and opportunist Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., announced that he plans on introducing a bill to remove Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol building.

Not to be outdone, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called for the removal of the statues, markers and other monuments that celebrate Civil War-era figures from public grounds, describing them as “reprehensible.”
Nancy Pelosi walks past the statue of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate leaders at the Capitol daily, yet she has never called for their removal. Why now? Because she wants to use it as wedge issue to anger blacks and cause them to turn out to vote for Democrats in 2018.

President Trump rightfully condemned these actions. He tweeted: “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. … You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!”

Sure enough, in a PBS interview with Charlie Rose, race hustler Al Sharpton called for the federal government to cease maintaining the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. Sharpton said, because Jefferson owned slaves, his monument shouldn’t be cared for with taxpayer funds. The only problem is that Sharpton doesn’t pay his taxes; he owes millions to the IRS. Shut up and pay your taxes, Al!

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood

The left is overreaching. According to an NPR/PBS/Marist Poll, 62 percent of Americans said statues honoring leaders of the Confederacy should remain; 27 percent said they should be removed and 11 percent were unsure. I’m heartbroken to see these historical monuments being destroyed and taken down.

I grew up on a plantation in Alabama. My grandfather ran the plantation, and my family worked and lived there. I always say that I’m not African-American – I’m 100 percent American! These monuments are a reminder of how far we have come as a nation. They are a reminder that we have reconciled with the past. Erasing history is a slippery slope, and we cannot allow the left to continue doing this.

If you remove every Confederate monument in the land, it won’t help black Americans one iota because blacks are not suffering due to “racism”; they are suffering because of the lack of moral character and the breakdown of the black family.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley made an awful mistake when she agreed to remove the Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina statehouse grounds in 2015. The flag wasn’t harming anyone. Blacks in the South have grown up with these images, and they’re part of our history. We don’t think twice about them. But white politicians are fearful of being labeled “racist,” so they cave in to crazy leftist demands. Democrats are taking down Confederate monuments because they want to erase and run away from their party’s history.

Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, was a Democrat. As Joseph Farah points out in his column (“Why Democrats want you to forget about the Confederacy“), white Democrats ran the South during the Civil War, through the Jim Crow days of segregation and right up until the early 1960s. Not a single Democrat in that era ever suggested destroying statues of Confederate heroes, taking down Confederate flags or toppling monuments memorializing the Confederacy!

This battle will not be won with anger. In my recent column, “Charlottesville, I tried to warn you,” I appealed to white Americans to drop their anger so they can speak up and fight back against the left in the right way. But young whites who have not had good parents – especially good fathers – are starting to fight back with anger, and now the media and the government are focused on them. It’s a trap.

President Trump was right – the hate is on both sides. Decent Americans should fight back against the attack on our history and on our freedoms, but don’t fight back with anger or it will come back on you. The government creates and encourages many of these problems, but when you get mad and take the wrong action, they pass laws to take away your freedoms.

So speak up and fight back without hate, and you will win!

Defacing Confederate Monuments: The Latest Communist Destruction of American Culture

Defacing Confederate Monuments: The Latest Communist Destruction of American Culture- This is not about slavery.”

by Bill Lockwood

It is happening in Charlottesville, VA; Durham, NC; Baltimore, MD; Jacksonville, FL; Gainesville, FL; Lexington, KY; Brooklyn, NY; Hollywood, CA; New Orleans, LA; Wilmington, NC—the list goes on. Statues honoring Confederate soldiers are being toppled and defaced. In a similar vein, earlier this year at Pepperdine University a statue of Christopher Columbus was removed in the wake of protests.

This is not about slavery. No one honors slavery in any form in America. This is about destroying the culture of America. To do that history must be revoked. Violent protests are therefore being organized, funded and implemented by hardcore leftists, communist, socialist, and anarchist groups. They are not spontaneous.

The World Workers Party (WWP), which helped organize the Durham, NC anarchy, proudly states on its website that participating mobsters are “freedom fighters.” The WWP describes itself as “a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist party dedicated to organizing and fighting for socialist revolution in the United States and around the world.” Other groups at the rally included members of the Triangle People’s Assembly, Industrial Workers of the World and the Democratic Socialists of America, reported The Herald Sun. It is the culture of America that is being toppled.

If this was about slavery we would be seeing mosques picketed and destroyed while stacks of Korans would be burning in the streets. Islam sanctions and encourages slavery. Mohammed himself, the founder of Islam, was a slave owner, slave wholesaler, slave retailer, slave torturer and sex slave user. Enshrined for all time in the Koran is the command from Allah that each Muslim man may have up to four wives plus “those whom his right hand may posses” (4:3). These commands are being carried out in Islamic countries.

On the subject of slavery in America it is worth noting that Muslim slave traders sold America every slave that came to our shores, yet Islam has never acknowledged this fact nor apologized.

If this was about slavery America would quit honoring the Native American or Indian culture of yesteryear. Indian tribes throughout America regularly captured, bought, sold, and used slaves from enemy tribes as well as the whites. Slavery was a part of their culture.

Perhaps Pepperdine president Andrew Benton, who quickly ceded to a small minority demand to remove the Columbus statue, should have considered this fact. Instead, he participated in mourning the “painful human tragedy” that Columbus supposedly represented by bringing the terrible “white man” to these shores.

Even socialism itself is a system of slavery. On the Socialist Alternative website the placard “Health Care for People, Not Profit” is displayed in prominent fashion. If I am a health-care provider their goal is for me to “serve” for free the public needs—in spite of years of personal training and financing to earn my credentials. What is this? Forced labor is slavery. This boldly requires the government arm to force my service. Let Bernie Sanders wrestle with this—for socialist organizations are calling upon him to assist them in their “struggle” for a socialist America.

Most disconcerting in all of this is the complete capitulation jelly-spined political leaders have demonstrated. Jim Gray, the mayor of Lexington, hurries himself to cleanse that city of Kentucky of Confederate memorials. We must please the revolutionaries.

Spineless and ill-informed Governor Cooper of NC tells that “My first responsibility as governor is to protect North Carolinians and keep them safe. The likelihood of protestors being injured or worse as they may try to topple any one of the hundreds of monuments in our state concerns me. And the potential for those same white supremacist elements we saw in Charlottesville to swarm the site, weapons in hand, in retaliation is a threat to public safety.”

Cooper was referring to the Durham incident where leftist Antifa and communist Black Lives Matter agitators clashed with white nationalists. But Durham only focused on white nationalists in the incident.

All of this reminds one of the Universities during the 1960’s. Once again, fomented by communist and socialist organizations, student hippie brigades lawlessly took over administration buildings on various campuses to demand a hearing with the authorities. Instead of forcibly expelling these thugs, school presidents and superintendents sheepishly sat down in the halls with Marxist protestors to pow-wow about their discontent.

Surrendering to this lawlessness which is bent on erasing American culture means feeding the Left enough oxygen to complete the destruction of our way of life. Mobs are organizing across the United States which behave more like ignorant juvenile delinquents than reasonable adults. They are coming to a town near you.
