#Portland -

I wanted to talk about something that I noticed from the community hall, a message really to other out-of-towners.

Yeah, I'm technically an outsider. Who has been watching for *months* now. . . 1/
Something that folks brought up is how streamers don't show the "other stuff." The mutual aid. The workshops. The bloc groups. The speakers.

There is DAMN good reason for that, that is rather unique to Portland, but I see it actually starting up in other cities. 2/
So if you're an out-of-towner looking at #Portland and you're for #BlackLivesMatter, listen up.

The reason the streamers don't show that "other stuff" is because of @/MrAndyNgo.

If you don't know him, he's an alt-right extremist who calls himself a journalist... 3/

I want to talk about "Black Lives Matter" and the evolution of its meaning within various subgroups, but I have not had my coffee yet.
OK...

I have come to hold the opinion that the term "Black Lives Matter" has become as dangerous as it is useful, mainly because it has been coopted by the very folks - Black & white - who ostracized the organization for both valid and invalid reasons.

Perpetrating frauds. Image
On its face, BLM makes perfect sense, it's a more passive way to say "Black Power". Its genius in protest terms is the statement's uncanny ability to draw racists into open debate, where bigotry always loses (because we matter).

White privilege is thus exposed for all to see.

[3/22] E dov'è il problema nel RT della locandina di una manifestazione anti-nazi?
Boh.
Insomma si stava per passare oltre quando s'è pensato: e raccontiamo cosa è successo sabato a San Francisco e chi è il nuovo beniamino di Totolo, il "conservatore" Philip Anderson >

LAPD rally today at the LAPD Academy— hello Proud Boy. LAPD breaks up #fight between a Proud Boy and BLM. Proud Boy assumes BLM is all fatherless and finds that hilarious (noted at the end of video)

Clearly Proud Boys are not “okay” with homosexuals. At LAPD rally today, Proud Body makes homophobic statement and tells me to go home because I’m a “little girl”

पेरिस: शिक्षक अभिव्यक्ति की "आज़ादी" पर बच्चों को चार्ली हेब्दो का उदाहरण देकर समझा रहा था,उसने कक्षा के मुस्लिम बच्चों को बाहर जाने के लिए कहा था।
एक को छोड़ बाकी सब निकल गए,लेकिन जो एकमात्र था उसने घर जाकर बताया,बस फिर क्या शाम होते ही,गला काट दिया शिक्षक का।
अल्लाह हु अकबर।
के नारे लगाता हुआ कातिल जब,भाग रहा था तो पुलिस की गोली से मारा गया।
उसे आतंकवादी घोषित कर दिया गया है,लेकिन भारत में कुछ लोग आज भी अफ़ज़ल और बुरहान की मौत का शोक मना रहें है।
कश्मीर,JNU, AMU,Jamia,Congress और लिबेरलों की घिग्गी बंधी हुई है।
एक शिक्षक की आतंकी हत्या पर मौन।
हमारे प्यारे बॉलीवुड के "सुपरस्टार" और "आइटम गर्लस" में से अभी तक किसी ने "प्लेकार्ड" नही उठाया है।
बिकाऊ मीडिया ने भी बस दो मिनेट चला दिया और अपने एजेंडे पेलने में लगे हुए है।
#BlackLivesMatter वालों ने भी आंदोलन नहीं छेड़ा है, #TeachersLivesMatter चला देते तो क्या हो जाता?

Today, armed activists led by "Boogaloo Boy" Mike Dunn marched to the Newport News, VA Police Station to defy a local law banning open carry on gov't property (for which Dunn was arrested last week).

The police chief offered chocolate milk and a sound system as a peace offering.
Police Chief Steve R. Drew spoke to the "Boogaloo Boys" et al.

He confirmed that he returned Mike Dunn his handgun today.

He sent his condolences to the family of Duncan Lemp, and said he wants to treat the rally "with the upmost respect" and asked the same from them.
A big sigh came out of @JaPharii757 from #BlackLivesMatter @BLM757 before his speech.

He noted the difference in how police treat unarmed Black Lives Matter activists versus an armed rally like this one.

He says "this showing of force is absolutely beautiful."

“She cofounded Black Lives Matter seven years ago along with Melina Abdullah, also of Los Angeles, following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida.” latimes.com/entertainment-…
Weird article! The next paragraph is the standard story: “The verdict prompted Oakland activist Alicia Garza to post on Facebook, “Our lives matter.” Cullors then turned the expression into a hashtag: #BlackLivesMatter, and New York activist Opal Tometi built a digital platform.”
Variety seems to tell the usual story

It's 2020 and obviously a large part of you are still dumb as dirt. Let me explain something to you, skinhead as a culture is not about your race. Never has been and never will be. If it was it would have never been able to get off the ground as a movement. Quit disrespectin'
I actually know a few of these guys personally and have for years.
Lujan and Marty and Duane were the first black skinheads in Chicago. Ask them what they think of Chicago now.

1) URGENT TREAD. SHARE IT!

This thread is to show video's and articles that I have been saving since before the 4th of July showing everything I've learned so far. Any #Patriot, #MAGA, #Trump2020 supporter who has PROOF to add to this tread. You're more than welcome. Go Time.
2) Joe Biden is a lying POS and it's been known for a very long time. This is the blatant lies he told in his first bid for Presidency.
3) That's why @realDonaldTrump attacked him about his education in the first debate. Trump was well aware of his lies, manipulations, and plagiarism. In fact, it was so well known that the legendary #JohnnyCarson mocked him over his copy of someone else's speech.

The reaction to @icecube's efforts to DELIVER is exactly why I criticize my community the way I do. I'm not a self hating black man, nor a "alt right" proxy. I'm not even a Republican. I'm just a black man who understands what we've done hasn't worked.
Ice Cube reached out to both parties. One told him we'll get around to you AFTER the election. The Trump campaign said let's talk NOW. The crowd loved Cube when he was offering to bail out looters. Now, he's an "Uncle Tom." Cube is a businessman. His detractors are useful idiots.
That man did not go out and tell black people to vote for Trump. He negotiated a DEAL. A deal he doesn't need for himself. A deal the very people "canceling" him now need. Y'all are ruled by emotion. Our community is dominated by feminine energy. Results of the MATRIARCHY.

I have been meaning to get started with @OrchidProtocol.

But it does bother me that they have a #BlackLivesMatter button on their website.

VPNs are the type of organization where any kind of political influence is extremely poisonous. Image
Will they reveal your IP address if you say something that black lives matter considers bad? Will they keep logs and check them for racism? Will they install client updates to do so at some future time?

Perhaps a little paranoid.
But there is a signalling thing here. VPNs 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 that they're not supposed to be political organizations. And yet they still chose to do it?

It's like a candidate turning up to an interview with an open bottle of beer. What is he signalling?

2/ Keep in mind how they are all Pushing for Depopulation like Chanting Sickophantic Acolytes especially Charles Schwab of WEF, who is 100% Against Breakthrough CleanEnergy & it's innovators & Sounds EXACTLY like Hitler in merely a toned down speech of such, not sure you noticed.
3/ Keep in mind that their "OneWorld" campaign is Campaigning for ONLY ONE CHILD among the Developing countries. Imagine, some foreign Nazi Dictators trying to order you to only have one child like as if they have anything to do with your country a continent away & Invest nothing

NCGOP ties to NC Sons of Confederate Veterans & white supremacy agenda go deep.

Deeper than just confed flags & white power shouts at #NCGOP rallies.
Deeper than a couple dozen campaign donations.

Really deep.

1/45

#NCpol #BlackLivesMatter
Been a long fall for NC GOP to being a foremost US white supremacy political party.

In 1870, it was #NCpol Republican Constable Wyatt Outlaw that took reasonable, non-lethal action against KKK.

Today's #NCGOP mocks Outlaw's subsequent lynching.
2/

We all know 19th century KKK were Dems, Repubs freed slaves.

We know bc GOP always tells us. Forest did it. So did Hawthorne.

Bc they don't have much else to say about race in polite company.

Bc today #NCGOP is a white supremacy party, #ncpol.

'The only way real change will happen is when there is an eight-figure problem when the agencies are on the verge of losing business, or when clients are willing to fire agencies for failing to diversify their workforce.' Anonymous to @seb_joseph @Digiday digiday.com/media/real-cha…
I've said for years the only thing that will make holding companies/agencies embrace diversity is total fucking disaster. 'One creative strategist has decided to sue an agency network for racial discrimination and wants others to do the same.' @Digiday digiday.com/media/real-cha…

If you were shocked by this video, if you shared it, if you learned something from it, even if you're only watching it for the first time now...

🚨 WE NEED YOUR HELP 🚨
ICE is trying to deport 100+ African immigrants TONIGHT.
Sharing these injustices is not enough.

🧵👇🏾
After using torture to force many of them to sign their own deportation orders, ICE is using fake documents to conduct a mass deportation of Black immigrants in the next 24 hours.

Most of them Cameroonian.

In case you didn't know: The violent conflict that erupted in the northwest & southwest regions of Cameroon in 2016 has killed thousands and displaced more than 679,000 so far.

Returning these folks in mass is a death sentence. Many will be killed by their own gov't upon return.
