Famous High School May Be Renamed After George Floyd

The Bible advises that you will know a tree by its fruit. This principle is especially applicable to ideology. A rotten tree produces rotten fruit. A rotten ideology produces lunacy like this:

An Alexandria, Virginia, school board might rename one of the country’s most well-known high schools after George Floyd.

George Floyd was a career criminal said to have robbed a pregnant woman at gunpoint. His only claim to fame was that his death was exploited as a pretext to riot after he died, evidently of a fentanyl overdose, while in police custody. A society that holds up violent criminals as role models has doomed itself to failure.

T.C. Williams High School, the subject of the movie “Remember the Titans,” will be renamed because its namesake, Thomas Chambliss Williams, held segregationist views.

Anyone who ever held views inconsistent with up-to-the-moment woke dogma is to be canceled, regardless of their accomplishments. “Liberalism” is a zero-tolerance ideology.

The Alexandria City School Board voted to rename the school as part of the ever-escalating War on History. What they will rename it to remains undetermined.

Among the 50 possible names for T.C. Williams are “George Floyd Memorial High School,” “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School,” “Kamala Harris High School,” and “Diversity High School.”

Diversity High is good. They could make another movie about the school: a prequel to PCU.

A document on the school board’s website notes that it did not include feedback from students and parents who suggested keeping the names as they are, “due to the fact that the Alexandria City School Board has already voted to change the names.”

Alexandria’s Matthew Maury Elementary School is getting a name change too, its namesake —an oceanographer who lived in the 19th century — having recently been found guilty of political incorrectness. Possible new names include “Black Lives Matter Elementary School.” Nothing gets schoolchildren off on the right foot like naming their school after an explicitly antifamily organization founded by avowed Marxists that caused $billions in damages with hundreds of riots.

Antifa/BLM Own NYC Streets, Attack Journalist

Meanwhile, as our liberal overlords exploit the insurrection at the Capitol last Wednesday as a pretext to crush free speech, Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue to enjoy a free hand to dominate public spaces, and not only in dystopian Portland. Yesterday they flexed their muscle in New York City:

A large group of Antifa and Black Lives Matter demonstrators wearing black bloc and carrying shields marched in the streets of Manhattan on Sunday. …

The marchers chanted, “Whose mother-f**king streets? Our mother-f**king streets” …

Here’s how they treat interlopers on their MF’ing streets:

Social-media journalist Tara Szczepanski reported being assaulted by some from the rally. She reported having an egg smashed on the back of her head.

In the video she tweeted, she is assaulted by at least two of the men. One sprayed her with a chemical string and another appeared to strike her with a skateboard.

The mob identified her as “a f**king Nazi” and accused her of supporting the President of the USA. Anyone who fails to embrace Antifa/BLM ideology is a Nazi and will be treated accordingly.

Szczepanski rushed to nearby NYPD police officers and appears to be assaulted again — in view of the cops. She said they “they told me to stay 6 feet from them and let me be attacked.”

What else would you expect in Bill de Blasio’s New York?

Let’s watch some of Szczepanski’s video, since the MSM doesn’t cover stuff like this:

Our progressive future opens before us like the gates of hell.

2020: A Great Year for Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles

2020 was annus horribilis for most of us, but it was a great year for Black Lives Matter, especially in Los Angeles, which this radical movement is rapidly transforming into another Detroit:

Daily Wire sums up some of BLM-LA’s deleterious accomplishments:

Media and Hollywood celebrities amplified BLM-LA’s signal, and organizers channeled that momentum toward successful grassroots efforts to oust D.A. [Jackie] Lacey…

Lacie was replaced by demented pro-criminal DA George Gascon.

More wins for the bad guys:

L.A. City Council agreed to slash the [LAPD]’s budget by $150 million. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti first announced the idea after BLM-LA led a massive demonstration outside of his residence on June 2.

Intimidation works in the sort of country this is becoming. At least it does on people who are sympathetic to the intimidators.

The L.A. Board of Education quickly followed suit, reducing the L.A. School Police Department’s budget by 35%, which equated to a $25 million cut. BLM-LA had spent more than five years organizing students, parents, and teachers against the district’s police force, which is tasked with protecting more than 600,000 students enrolled in the nation’s second-largest public education system.

BLM also went after the LA County Sheriff’s Department, with the ballot proposal Measure J:

Its passage requires at least 10% of the county’s general fund be appropriated to community programs and alternatives to incarceration, but Sheriff Alex Villanueva and police unions said it would defund public safety. LASD operates the nation’s largest jail system.

Leftists have already managed to largely empty neighboring Orange County Sheriff’s Department jails onto the streets.

Despite Garcetti’s willingness to cave to outrageous demands by BLM terrorists, BLM-LA’s lead community organizer Melina Abdullah claims that her organization blocked him from a Biden cabinet position. If so, this may be the first good thing ever to come of Black Lives Matter.

She also noted a series of Black LA Demands related to the COVID-19 pandemic as another important achievement from 2020, along with the formation of BLM Grassroots, which was established to aid local chapters’ organizational needs.

Alarmingly, BLM racists aren’t the only ones to racialize the coronavirus response.

Lastly, Abdullah recognized BLM-LA’s annual Black Xmas campaign, which asks allies to refrain from spending money with white corporations from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day.

Christmas is the season for hating white people. Racial animosity hasn’t been this explicit since they closed down Auschwitz. Yet it is those brave enough to oppose Black Lives Matter who get whacked with the “RACIST!” club.

UK BLM Types to Compile Registry of Racists

So many people warrant cancelation for being “racists,” the “antiracists” are compiling lists:

A UK activist who calls herself the “Black Panther of Oxford” wants to create a “race offenders” registry that would bar alleged racists from getting work or living near communities of color.

Sasha Johnson, 26, divulged the agenda for the Taking the Initiative Party, a political group in the UK that’s inspired by Black Lives Matter.

Say anything leftist militants don’t like and you may find yourself unemployable. “Microaggressions” — imaginary slights that militants take offense at in the absence of any actual slights — are grounds for cancelation.

Yells Johnson:

“A lot of racism happens at work and places of education in a micro-aggressive way,” she added. “If you exhibit an element of bias at work, you should probably receive a warning first [before later being added to the register] so people know in future that you hold these views.”

How gracious of her to issue a warning, so that people can save themselves if they promptly calibrate their attitudes to her liking.

Johnson has other demands, including “reparations” in the form of race-based tax breaks.

“Reparations can take the form of tax-free periods, which would give time to build back up economic stability in black communities,” said Johnson. “We have to remember that the Jewish community received reparations for the Holocaust, and no one speaks about forgetting the Holocaust.”

If you think the Holocaust was bad, imagine being an immigrant from Africa or the Caribbean forced to endure the imaginary racism of Britain’s extravagantly generous welfare state.

Johnson’s Black Lives Matter compadres have major influence in the Democrat Party. Local Democrat officials enabled them as they terrorized the public with hundreds of riots in the course of the year, with the Democrat-controlled media cheering them on.

What if useful idiots end up putting people like this in control? If 2020 could happen, anything is possible. Imagine what they would do with registries of race offenders then. Comparisons to the Holocaust might become appropriate.

Britain has been importing lots of Sasha Johnsons.

BLM Booers Face Reeducation or Ban

Not only are athletes required to genuflect to Black Lives Matter rioters or face media castigation, fans are required to refrain from disapproving. Punishments for fans who boo displays of reverence for this violent hard left movement include banning and reeducation.

The Atlantic Ocean is not wide enough to protect England from compulsory BLM worship. From the Daily Mail:

Cambridge United have handed a stadium ban to fans who booed players taking a knee before their home game against Colchester.

Other fans have been asked to undertake education around discrimination and equality before they are allowed back into the Abbey Stadium.

Summit News interprets:

In other words, fans will have to sit through patronizing lectures about “diversity” and Black Lives Matter and feign agreement or face a stadium ban.

Why might British fans not want games hijacked by BLM supporters for propaganda purposes? Are they racists? Probably not; there are plenty of better reasons:

Over the summer, BLM rioters desecrated war memorials, set fire to the Union Jack flag, vandalized the Winston Churchill monument and violently attacked police.

Their political agenda also openly espouses a marxist agenda to destroy capitalism and completely subvert western civilization.

The kneeling began when NFL benchwarmer Colin Kaepernick segued from a fading sports career to a lucrative job as a professional moonbat by kneeling in disrespect for the flag when the national anthem was played. This evolved into a gesture of obeisance to Black Lives Matter in American sports during the height of the movement’s rioting, as Marxists used intimidation to advance their political agenda by looting and burning down businesses and destroying statues of the Founding Fathers.

Why do British soccer players feel compelled to kneel to these thugs? Why are fans not permitted to show understandable disgust? Big League Politics explains:

Black Lives Matter hasn’t proved as impactful in other English-speaking nations such as Britain- a largely homogeneous country- but the progressive cultural elite has increasingly sought to implement its ideals as a state religion, comparable to their practice in the United States.

Liberal race-based ideology has evolved into a mandatory global religion, and blaspheming its sacred rituals is not to be tolerated.

Eric Garcetti: Money Taken From Police Must Go to Moonbattery

When urban progressives defund the police despite soaring crime rates, at least taxpayers get some of their money back, right? Just kidding of course. Not only do characters like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti keep the money, they insist that it be put toward a destructive purpose:

Garcetti vetoed a plan backed by black and Latino members of the City Council to redistribute money cut from the police Tuesday because he said it was too focused on everyday needs and not on the “call of history.”

The “call of history” means pernicious moonbattery.

The plan, which was originally passed 13-2, included funding to trim trees, improve parks, and repair sidewalks in poor neighborhoods.

No dice; too constructive. If Garcetti wanted to help minority neighborhoods, he would see to it that they are policed sufficiently.

A little background:

In June, as the city was under curfew and the National Guard was on the streets, Garcetti acceded to a demand by Black Lives Matter activists to defund the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) by $150 million, more than 10% of the budget.

The terrorists did not have to twist his arm very hard.

The funding was to be redistributed to “communities of color.”

This is known as “racial justice” or more accurately as “racial spoils.”

The move led to a collapse in morale within the police department, and coincided with a surge in homicides in Los Angeles.

You can’t make a leftist omelet without breaking eggs. If you want a pretext for a gun grab, breaking eggs may be the objective.

How to waste the money in a way that would suit Garcetti? A giant golden statue of fentanyl casualty George Floyd? No good; not local enough. Better to make it a statue of Floyd’s fellow career criminal Deonte Murray, who was arrested for seriously wounding two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies in an attempted assassination on September 12, presumably as part of the mostly peaceful protesting that had led to the police being defunded.

Coronabucks Flow to Antifa, Black Lives Matter

To compensate for the economically crushing coronavirus restrictions, we get free money from the government, compliments of whoever gets stuck holding the bag on the national debt (likely us, through hyperinflation). This free money comprises a looting spree. As usual, the looted money flows in the direction of those favored by the liberal ruling class — Marxist terrorists and black supremacist race rioters, for example:

Apparently, the State of Oregon wants more antifa and Black Lives Matter rioting. At [a] time when violent rioters were setting fires, looting, and terrorizing the people of Portland, they were rewarded with U.S. CARES Act COVID relief funds.

US Women’s Soccer Team Showcases Anti-American Agitprop Abroad

Over the past months, information has seeped through the MSM information blockade, allowing people to become aware that in addition to being anti-American, Black Lives Matter is a violent Marxist movement founded upon brazen lies. The media-induced euphoric support ginned up in the wake of a career criminal dying of a drug overdose has faded. Nonetheless, Black Lives Matter mania lives on in the sports world:

[T]he United States women’s soccer team protested the national anthem and made a social justice statement with “Black Lives Matter” uniforms prior to a game on Friday.

Ahead of their game with the Netherlands’ national team, the American women walked out of the locker room wearing jackets emblazoned with “Black Lives Matter.” During the playing of the American national anthem, nearly every member of the team knelt, according to ESPN, a sign of protest against America.

The very slogan “Black Lives Matter” is a protest against America — an affirmation that per leftist propagandists, America is an awful country because it is mean to blacks. Ironically, sports are conspicuous for showcasing the opportunities available to blacks only in the USA.

Is it too much to ask that when you are explicitly representing the United States abroad, you refrain from ostentatious displays of anti-American ideology?

If they keep it up with the moonbat politics, athletes may surpass journalists to become the least respected profession in America. In contrast to the NFL, NBA, and MLB, at least women’s soccer players don’t aggravate the insult by getting paid hundreds of times more than the allegedly racist working stiffs who fund their frivolous activities.

Decency and human rights. From a Marxist movement.

Pope Francis: BLM Riots Good, Anti–COVID Tyranny Protests Bad

In a sane world, the Pope would side with the good guys. But moonbattery deranges everything it touches; not even the papacy is exempted. That’s why Pope Francis denounces protesters against tyranny inflicted in the name of COVID hysteria, while praising destructive race riots driven by Marxists.

AFO reports:

Pope Francis took aim Monday at protests against coronavirus restrictions, contrasting them with the “healthy indignation” seen in the global demonstrations against racism after the death of George Floyd.

That “healthy indignation” produced hundreds of riots and $billions in property damage. Dozens of people have been killed. No evidence has been produced that the drug-induced demise of George Floyd had anything to do with racism.

“Some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions — as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom!” he wrote in a new book [entitled Let Us Dream].

As if. Yet restrictions against looting Target or setting fire to police stations can be righteously ignored, because “healthy indignation.”

Risibly cluelessness regarding current events, Francis stumbles into comedy gold as he spews invective at those who protest against COVID-19 tyranny:

“You’ll never find such people protesting the death of George Floyd, or joining a demonstration because there are shantytowns where children lack water or education, or because there are whole families who have lost their income,” he said.

He added: “On such matters they would never protest; they are incapable of moving outside of their own little world of interests.”

If Francis would move outside his own little world of moonbattery, it might occur to him that whole families have lost their income precisely because of the excessive coronavirus restrictions he wants us to accept passively, even as he tacitly gives a thumbs-up to throwing Molotov cocktails through store windows in the name of George Floyd.

The good news is that even Francis is alarmed by the common practice of desecrating and/or destroying statues of great historical figures at mostly peaceful George Floyd riots. He must realize the crocodile might not eat him last if iconoclasm gets out of hand.

Colin Kaepernick Calls for Release of Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal

To get a clear idea where the Black Lives Matter movement is coming from, look to Colin Kaepernick, a washed-up athlete who started the fad of kneeling disrespectfully during the national anthem because America is “racist.”

This appalling practice spread throughout sports at the peak of Black Lives Matter rioting. Rather than stand for their country, absurdly overpaid athletes chose to kneel to Marxist race rioters.

Kaepernick personifies the BLM mentality. He surprises no one when he denounces America. He surprised no one on Monday when he championed former Black Panther and convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal:

Kaepernick called upon the Philadelphia district attorney’s office to release Abu-Jamal, claiming that he was framed after falling prey to police brutality.

No serious person believes that Abu-Jamal is innocent. Five witnesses saw him assassinate Officer Daniel Faulkner. The trial was an open-and-shut case that he turned into a circus, winning the hearts of leftists.

Abu-Jamal murdered Faulkner in 1981. He was sentenced to death. That he is still alive is itself a crime.

Kaepernick doesn’t speak only for himself:

Kaepernick emphasized that the Black Lives Matter movement demands that Abu-Jamal be released from prison so that his legacy matters.

This legacy is on display every time a police officer is ambushed.

Savagery and murder. That’s what the athletes genuflect before. That’s what the Democrat Party obsequiously embraces. That’s what Nike glorifies by choosing Kaepernick to represent it.

Peaceful Protesters Call for Death to Fascism and Liberalism

By now we are used to aggressive advocacy of tyranny, chaos, and violence in abscesses of leftism like Portland, Seattle, and New York. But it isn’t just the coasts; spawned by academia and avidly nurtured by the media, the disease has metastasized throughout the country. This mob demanding “death to fascism and the liberalism that enables it” menaced Denver:

CTPost reports that eight moonbats were arrested at this “small protest” Wednesday night. Charges include possession of a prohibited weapon and assaulting a police officer. Police confiscated a handgun, a knife, bear spray, and a hammer.

Meanwhile, CNN and MSNBC pretend that conservatives gathering to call for an honest vote count are the dangerous ones.

The mostly peaceful Denver protesters overturned a dumpster and set the contents on fire, broke windows, and of course defaced property with graffiti.

Even if hardly harmless, the monster is still a baby. But monsters grow quickly if no one prevents it.

People like this end up in power, even in great countries. The results are invariably nightmarish.

Democrats who kids themselves that they can help Kamala Harris to power, though she openly supports and enables these maniacs, will be in for a rude awakening if this goes as far as it did in France in 1789, Russia in 1917, or China in 1949. If history is any guide, millions will die. Many of the liberals who helped create the fever swamp of festering moonbattery that spawned Black Lives Matter and Antifa will be among them.

Black Lives Matter Tries Assassination

Looks like Black Lives Matter violence has made the natural progression from rioting, vandalism, and public beatings to attempted assassinations.

From the New York Post:

Enrique Tarrio told the Gateway Pundit that he was slashed in the stomach, while “multiple other members” were injured, including a man stabbed in the neck and a woman with them stabbed in the back.

Enrique Tarrio is chairman of Proud Boys International and Florida state director of Latinos for Trump. The Proud Boys are the anti–Black Lives Matter: race-neutral instead of racist and pro-American instead of anti-American.

The group said they were heading home after watching the election at a DC bar when they were jumped and knifed just blocks from the White House.

As noted earlier, Black Lives Matter/Antifa established a substantial presence in this area on Tuesday for the purpose of election intimidation.

After the attackers fled, Bevelyn Beatty — a black woman who previously dumped paint over the Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower — was seen holding her lower back, saying, “They stabbed me.”

No good deed goes unpunished with Black Lives Matter in control of the streets.

“She’s bleeding really badly!” gasped the videographer, Jen Loh, a former vice president of Latinos For Trump. …

Loh told Storyful that the attackers appeared to target Beatty. “If it wasn’t for the three or four Proud Boys that were there, she would have been stabbed and really brutally beaten had they not saved her from the attack,” Loh told the agency.

If liberal establishment journalists are compelled to acknowledge this event, it will no doubt be twisted into confirmation that the Proud Boys really are racist, just like Joe Biden says.

The injuries were serious but not life-threatening. Competence does not come naturally to BLM/Antifa types. But given practice, their assassin skills will improve.

DC police spokesman Lt. Ralph Neal initially told local media that the suspects were members of Black Lives Matter…

After BLM unsurprisingly denied this, the DCPD backtracked and said it could not confirm the assailants were affiliated with BLM, as if there were a registry of official members somewhere, and their names may or may not be on it. Given that DC’s anti-American mayor Muriel Bowser painted a two-blocks-long BLACK LIVES MATTER mural on 16th Street leading to the White House, it can be assumed that political pressure played a role.

Kamala Harris’s “heroes of our time” try assassination.

Moonbats Express Reverence for Elections at WWI Memorial

Elections are useful as far as they go. Thanks to the brainwashing enabled by leftist control of the media, schools, and entertainment, they can go a long way. But at a certain point, you have to dispense with the window dressing and seize power by force. Ask the Black Lives Matter/Antifa brownshirts who descended on the White House yesterday. Ask whoever did this in Kansas City:

Politics of Intimidation Outside the White House

To leftists, elections are only a means to an end. If voting doesn’t work, they supplement it with intimidation. Yesterday, Democrats’ brownshirts descended on the White House in a show of force:

Cops clashed with BLM and Antifa protesters in ugly scenes outside the White House – as some declared they would stay for weeks if President Trump is re-elected.

They concentrated at Black Lives Matter Plaza, a block away from the White House. A police van had its tires slashed.

[A] group of about 50 police officers were surrounded by civilians who demanded that they “let go” a man who had just been arrested in Lafayette Square, The Sun observed.

As demonstrators closed in on law enforcement and demanded to know why the man had been detained, it became clear cops were heavily outnumbered.

Several crowd members appeared to be carrying weapons, including bats and sticks.

The officers clung onto each other, then backed away, changing direction several times until the crowds following them dropped off.

Police appeared to then retreat into a nearby hotel.

When civilization retreats, the radicalized Democrats win.
