17 cops in Philly are suspended and may be fired.  72 (SEVENTY-TWO) placed on administrative leave.

Isolated case?

Don't believe it.  There's more coming....

QUOTE

In June, an online database known as the Plain View Project shared thousands of Facebook posts by about 328 active-duty law enforcement officers in Philadelphia and St. Louis, where 60 officers were removed from street duty.

Here's a case from a couple years ago in Louisiana in Davey Duke's home Parish.

Keep in mind the huge ruckus that #ErraticTrump and his cult members (GOP) made about emails/texts between 2 or 3 FBI folks and then claimed that the entire FBI leadership was biased against him and could not and did not treat him fairly.  They allege that #Loser45 was targeted for NO good reason and that a hoax was created and a witch hunt ensued.

The same folks will say that Black and Brown folks have NO BASIS for concluding that HUNDREDS of Border officers and HUNDREDS of cops in Philly will not treat US FAIRLY, even though they were engaged in racist and misogynistic comments or were silent in the face of them.

NAH,  :nono2: that dog don't hunt!!!!

The same people - almost to a person - are those who find it impossible to believe that the Exonerated Five (CP5) were intimidated by cops, lied to by cops and coerced by cops to give confessions, which
1) did not accurately describe the crime,
2) identified "other attackers" they did not know and
3) contradicted each other
.....while at the same time,
1) the crime scene showed the presence of only ONE attacker, not a group
2) there was NO physical evidence or DNA to connect them to the crime.

Wait 'til the social media posts of the NYPD are released!!!

Overall, 42 percent of the 1,923 total former bundlers for Clinton and Obama — a group tracked by the Center for Responsive Politics — have given at least one donation to a candidate this cycle. Harris, who had the most support from this group of any candidate during the first quarter, collected donations from 70 new major donors during the second quarter for a total of 246.

And Buttigieg, the previously little-known mayor who has caught fire with big-money supporters, brought in donations from 224 of the fundraisers — helping him raise $24.9 million last quarter, the most of any Democratic contender.

There’s also overlap among the candidates giving to Biden, Buttigieg and Harris: 129 of the fundraisers gave money to at least two of the three, and 21 donated to all three of them.

After this top tier of candidates, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker is the Democrat who received donations from the most bundlers. Booker has raised money from 152 fundraisers so far during this election cycle. While 39 of the bundlers donated to Warren, seven have given to Sanders’ campaign so far.

Per Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC reporting, Limbaugh said on his show concern for deficits "has been bogus as long as it's been around."

Of course, Limbaugh ranted and raved about deficits every time there was a Democrat President or Congress.

Another charlatan confesses!!!!

And y04 and Olds..t, Mr. and Mrs. Gullible, BELIEVED he was sincere in that BOGUS concern.

Paul Krugman in the NY Times...

QUOTE

In 1981 Lee Atwater, the famed Republican political operative, explained to an interviewer how his party had learned to exploit racial antagonism using dog whistles. “You start out in 1954 by saying ‘n----r, n----r, n----r.’” But by the late 1960s, “that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, ‘forced busing,’ ‘states’ rights,’ and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.”

Well, the dog whistle days are over. Republicans are pretty much back to saying “n----r, n----r, n----r.”

As everyone knows, on Sunday Donald Trump attacked four progressive members of Congress, saying that they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” As it happens, three of the four were born in the U.S., and the fourth is a duly naturalized citizen. All are, however, women of color.

Sorry, there’s no way to both sides this, or claim that Trump didn’t say what he said. This is racism, plain and simple — nothing abstract about it. And Trump obviously isn’t worried that it will backfire.

This should be a moment of truth for anyone who describes Trump as a “populist” or asserts that his support is based on “economic anxiety.” He’s not a populist, he’s a white supremacist. His support rests not on economic anxiety, but on racism.
[...]
...this isn’t just about Trump; it’s about his whole party.

The strongest evidence that #Loser45's statements were RACIST is that he has NEVER told a white critic or opponent to go back where they came from.

Not to England, Scotland, Italy or Europe in general.

But he started his political life questioning the birthplace of a Black man, launched his campaign calling Mexicans rapists, then criticized a Mexican judge's capabilities because... he is Mexican.

And now he tells Black and Brown Members of Congress to go back to countries where they "came from" - Cincinatti, the Bronx, etc.

The fFar fRight fWing and the GOP embrace white identity politics and white (racist) nationalism.

Evidence?  Over a hundred million dollars donated to the #ErraticTrump re-election.

There are many varieties of Black Conservatives and, of course, there are conservative Blacks..

But there is a special set of traits for 'Trump Conservative Blacks' which is as fascinating as it is usually sad.

Back in 2004, this scholar addressed the topic:

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00064246.2004.11413241

Meanwhile, we see the examination of white resentment and white identity politics in many analyses.  This is one:

The Disturbing, Surprisingly Complex Relationship Between White Identity Politics and Racism

QUOTE

In her new book, “White Identity Politics,” the Duke political scientist Ashley Jardina examines the increasing relevance of white identity in America. Drawing on data from American National Election Studies surveys and her own research, Jardina finds that about thirty to forty per cent of white Americans say that white identity is important to them, and she adds an interesting twist—that this group only partly overlaps with the group of white Americans who hold racist views. According to Jardina’s analysis, about thirty-eight per cent of white people who highly value their white identity are at or below the mean level of racial resentment, while forty-four per cent of white people who say their racial identity is less important are at or above that level. “For those invested in racial equality, this outcome should be of little comfort,” Jardina writes, of white Americans asserting their identity, with or without explicit racial resentment.
UNQUOTE

I will add my comment re: her assertion:
Quote
Jardina finds that about thirty to forty per cent of white Americans say that white identity is important to them, and she adds an interesting twist—that this group only partly overlaps with the group of white Americans who hold racist views.

I suspect that what's really going on here is that those who express the importance of white identity (to them) are simply not expressing strongly their held racist views.

Nonetheless the oft-expressed anti-Black attitudes of Trump Black Conservative(s) on this site are the flip side of the white so-called supremacist coin.

In future posts we will explore the minds of white people via the research and work of WHITE SCHOLARS, especially.

We'll start with the work of Dr. DeAngelo on WHITE FRAGILITY, which explains WHY and HOW many white people react/withdraw from any challenging comments/information on racism or even race.  We've previously discussed her work her.

You saw the video, right?

The young couple with kids 'surrounded' like they were accused of killing nine people in a church or something...  The cops were called re: a suspected shop lifting from a freaking DOLLAR STORE!!!

https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/News/video/mayor-phoenix-slams-police-officers-inappropriate-unprofessional-actions-63745607

But, HEY!, we had uchi's assurances that police in Arizona were cool with Black people!!  So,...nothing to worry about.

Email from Color of Change
Phoenix police officers threatened to murder Iesha, a pregnant Black woman, and her family as they sat in their car. The offense? Her 4-year-old baby allegedly walked out of a store with a 99 cent doll.1

Within seconds of arriving on the scene and the viral video starts recording, an officer is heard shouting “I'm gonna f***ing put a cap [bullet] right in your f***ing head”2 at Iesha Harper, the scared Black mother, her fiancé Dravon Ames and their 2 kids. Before the family even has a chance to react and respond, officers are shouting that they're going to kill them. These vicious, violent cops have no place in policing Black people or any communities for that matter. The Phoenix police chief Jeri Williams and the Maricopa County District Attorney Bill Montgomery should immediately fire and file assault charges against all police officers present for their overly-aggressive use of force and threatening to kill them. If we can get these Phoenix officers fired from the force and charged, they won't have another opportunity to abuse, threaten, and harass other Black people as police officers.

UNQUOTE

Even if they were shoplifting, NONE of that was called for.

I am certain that uchi believes that white people in the exact circumstances are treated the same way.

Let America Be America Again
by Langston Hughes - 1902-1967


Let America be America again.
Let it be the dream it used to be.
Let it be the pioneer on the plain
Seeking a home where he himself is free.

(America never was America to me.)

Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed—
Let it be that great strong land of love
Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme
That any man be crushed by one above.

(It never was America to me.)

O, let my land be a land where Liberty
Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath,
But opportunity is real, and life is free,
Equality is in the air we breathe.

(There's never been equality for me,
Nor freedom in this "homeland of the free.")

Say, who are you that mumbles in the dark?
And who are you that draws your veil across the stars?

I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart,
I am the Negro bearing slavery's scars.
I am the red man driven from the land,
I am the immigrant clutching the hope I seek—
And finding only the same old stupid plan
Of dog eat dog, of mighty crush the weak.

I am the young man, full of strength and hope,
Tangled in that ancient endless chain
Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land!
Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of satisfying need!
Of work the men! Of take the pay!
Of owning everything for one's own greed!

I am the farmer, bondsman to the soil.
I am the worker sold to the machine.
I am the Negro, servant to you all.
I am the people, humble, hungry, mean—
Hungry yet today despite the dream.
Beaten yet today—O, Pioneers!
I am the man who never got ahead,
The poorest worker bartered through the years.

Yet I'm the one who dreamt our basic dream
In the Old World while still a serf of kings,
Who dreamt a dream so strong, so brave, so true,
That even yet its mighty daring sings
In every brick and stone, in every furrow turned
That's made America the land it has become.
O, I'm the man who sailed those early seas
In search of what I meant to be my home—
For I'm the one who left dark Ireland's shore,
And Poland's plain, and England's grassy lea,
And torn from Black Africa's strand I came
To build a "homeland of the free."

The free?

Who said the free? Not me?
Surely not me? The millions on relief today?
The millions shot down when we strike?
The millions who have nothing for our pay?
For all the dreams we've dreamed
And all the songs we've sung
And all the hopes we've held
And all the flags we've hung,
The millions who have nothing for our pay—
Except the dream that's almost dead today.

O, let America be America again—
The land that never has been yet—
And yet must be—the land where every man is free.
The land that's mine—the poor man's, Indian's, Negro's, ME—
Who made America,
Whose sweat and blood, whose faith and pain,
Whose hand at the foundry, whose plow in the rain,
Must bring back our mighty dream again.

Sure, call me any ugly name you choose—
The steel of freedom does not stain.
From those who live like leeches on the people's lives,
We must take back our land again,
America!

O, yes,
I say it plain,
America never was America to me,
And yet I swear this oath—
America will be!

Out of the rack and ruin of our gangster death,
The rape and rot of graft, and stealth, and lies,
We, the people, must redeem
The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers.
The mountains and the endless plain—
All, all the stretch of these great green states—
And make America again!

From Lincoln's First Annual Message:


Labor is prior to and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed.
Labor is the superior of capital and deserves much the higher consideration.


Abraham Lincoln, from his first speech as an Illinois state legislator, 1837
These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert, to fleece the people.

LINCOLN AND THE SOCIALIST ROOTS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

QUOTE
Although both Republicans and Democrats pretend that socialism is a foreign idea antithetical to the “American Way,” Nichols argues that socialism has a long, proud history in America. He writes about Tom Paine who admired early socialists, Horace Greeley who employed Karl Marx as a correspondent for the New York Tribune, and Helen Keller who was an avowed socialist. But one fascinating chapter, reprinted in full at the International Socialist Review, reveals that Republican president Abraham Lincoln had not only immersed himself in the ideas of European Utopian Socialists, and German Communists, but spoke about them publicly.

Lincoln was an avid reader of newspapers, especially of the New York Tribune, which was the great Republican paper of the day. It took a strong stand against slavery in the south. But it also had forceful opinions on the relationship between Labor and Capital, arguing that “Labor needs not to combat but to command Capital.” Greeley wanted to “expose the crimes whereby wealth is amassed and luxury enjoyed.”  Nichols writes:
Greeley welcomed the disapproval of those who championed free markets over the interests of the working class, a class he recognized as including both the oppressed slaves of the south and the degraded industrial laborers of the north.
[...]
What Lincoln, a Republican, can teach us is not to shy away from socialist analysis or naming class warfare as the single most important issue in the United States today—because it is.

1, What Kamala Harris was talking about re: bussing.  (He's thinking, why not take the train or a limo to school.)

2. What "Western Liberalism" is.

3. His butthole from a hole in the ground.

And he thinks dirty streets in big cities started TWO YEARS AGO ( guess to make him look bad!!!) and he's "thinking seriously" about doing some things about it, like the other important things he's thinking, you know, about doing.

It's NO wonder an idiot like Olds..t likes him.

QUOTE FROM A PROSECUTOR

...Cohn (Trump's lawyer in a housing discrimination case) turns around and sues us for $100 million. This was my first appearance as a lawyer in court. Cohn spoke for two hours, then the judge ruled from the bench that you can’t sue the government for prosecuting you. The next week we took the depositions. My boss took Fred’s, and I got to take Donald’s. He was exactly the way he is today. He said to me at one point during a coffee break, “You know, you don’t want to live with them either.”

How the Pentagon paid a British PR firm
$500 million for top secret Iraq propaganda


Pentagon funded fake terror videos...

QUOTE

The Pentagon gave a controversial UK PR firm over half a billion dollars to run a top secret propaganda programme in Iraq, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism can reveal.

Bell Pottinger’s output included short TV segments made in the style of Arabic news networks and fake insurgent videos which could be used to track the people who watched them, according to a former employee.
[...]
The firm’s output was signed off by former General David Petraeus – then commander of the coalition forces in Iraq – and on occasion by the White House, Wells said.
