Sunday News Roundup: The Democrat-Sponsored Riots Will Continue Until You Take A Knee

What if they wrote a Tweet and nobody knew what it meant? – Well, you’d get a Tweet like this one from Breitbart this morning: “The Seattle Storm and New York Liberty, walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem prior to their game on Saturday.”

That was the first thing I saw when I got online this morning, and I have to admit to being baffled. What in the world is a Seattle Storm and a New York Liberty? Turns out that those are two teams in the WNBA, a league I honestly thought had folded years ago.

From the Breitbart piece:

The Seattle Storm and New York Liberty, walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem prior to their game on Saturday.

In addition, there was a 26-second moment of silence in honor of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville police.

Each player also wore Taylor’s name on the back of their jerseys.

“We are dedicating this season to Breonna Taylor, an outstanding EMT who was murdered over 130 days ago in her home,” Liberty player Layshia Clarendon announced before tip-off. “Breonna Taylor was dedicated and committed to uplifting everyone around here. We are also dedicating this season to ‘Say Her Name” campaign, a campaign committed to saying the names and fighting for justice of black women – black women are so often forgotten in this fight for justice, who don’t have people marching in the streets for them. We will say her name. Sandra Bland. Atatiana Jefferson. Dominique Remy Fells. Breonna Taylor. We will be a voice for the voiceless.”

[End]

So, a really good cause but a really dumb way to draw attention to it. The great news for the WNBA is that no one watches their games anyway, so walking off the court won’t cost them in the TV ratings.

The “peaceful protests” continued around the country on Saturday. – In Austin, Texas, a chubby, pasty-white 30-something doofus who was carrying an AK-47 was shot and killed when he reportedly aimed his rifle at a passing motorist. Turned out the motorist – who is cooperating with local police – was carrying, too. The BLM protester’s last words to a TV interviewer were “people who hate us” are “too big of p-ssies to actually do anything about it.” Guess not. Life comes at you fast, foks.

In Seattle, the “peaceful protesters” from the BLM/Antifa terrorist complex managed to burn a large warehouse building and injure 21 police officers. That finally prompted despicable Marxist Mayor Jenny Durkan to declare a riot.

From a report by KIRO Channel 7:

During a media briefing with Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, she said Saturday’s protest was not a peaceful demonstration at all [Gee, you think?], and many people were put at risk. She described the path that rioters took.

What started with thousands of people gathering peacefully Saturday afternoon in Capitol Hill in solidarity with the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests in Portland changed later in the day.

The group met at Seattle Central College at East Pine Street and Broadway at around 1 p.m. before starting their march and loudly making their message heard to defund SPD.

Things shifted at about 4 p.m.

During the march, Seattle police said about a dozen people devolved into a rampage of destruction as they marched past the King County Youth Detention Center at 12th Avenue and Alder Street, targeting the site.

Some rioters carried sledgehammers and began shattering workers’ car windows in the parking lot.

At one point, a rioter grabbed a flagger’s stop sign and used it as a weapon.

[End]

So, just a bunch of peaceful kids having peaceful fun in peaceful Seattle, right, New York Times?

Meanwhile, the fun continued in Portland, Oregon for the 59th straight day. Here’s how terrific journalist Andy Ngo captured the peaceful action:

Oh, so much peace, so much fun, so much beautiful bonding, right, CNN?

But never fear! Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has her priorities right where you’d expect them to be!

From a report at Breitbart:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot deployed dozens of police officers on Thursday to form a human barricade around the block where she lives. This was the same day she ordered the removal of a Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park in the overnight hours.

The local CBS affiliate reported on the scene in Chicago, where the Trump administration is sending federal police to help quell the ongoing violence, as shooting deaths occur on a daily basis:

About 1,000 protesters gathered in Logan Square Thursday night calling for racial justice and police reform. The protesters were gathered at Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, close to where Mayor Lori Lightfoot lives, as of 9:15 p.m.

The group included representatives of Black Lives Matter and Good Kids Mad City, and they are also calling for the defunding of police. 

The protest began at the actual Logan Square at Milwaukee and Kedzie avenues. It grew considerably as it moved through the neighborhood.

Honestly, every time you think Democrat politicians cannot possibly become more depraved, despicable and demented, they go and prove you wrong.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    The WNBA is, quite literally, the exclusive province of the LGBTQ crowd. They are a money-losing sexual appendage of the woke NBA, which subsidizes them. As such, they are a political vehicle rather than an actual sports league.

    And I say that as someone who would actually watch a true women’s professional basketball league, if it existed. Because of physical limitations, the women’s game has to rely much more on teamwork, passing and movement, elements that have long since passed out of the dunk–and-chuck men’s game.

    1. Gregg - July 26, 2020

      When the WNBA first came out, I mean into existence, the first mega all sports radio station WFAN 660 AM out of NYC didn’t even report the scores as they did with virtually every other sport. And there were no calls about it into the hosts that I can recall. In other words, even back then the WNBA was a nonentity, even for the the woke (I’m sure they were as most all sports ‘reporters’ are the same as their MSM (D) counterparts) libs who ran and still run WFAN.

      The WNBA is as relevant as the Lingerie Football League in 2009, now called the Legends Football League (2013) whatever that means. Wonder if the NFL is subsidizing that?

      1. phineas gage - July 27, 2020

        WFAN was the background of my life when I was a graduate student in Connecticut in the early 1980’s, It was entirely unique at the time, and the on-air personalities were at once idiosyncratic, funny, and well-informed. It is but a sad shell of itself now.

  2. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

    Judging by the video, the Austin BLM ‘protest’ was almost entirely white millennials. They are soft and ignorant–useful tools and street fodder of the Left–as anyone with half a brain would know that you do not threaten people with guns in Texas, whether it is liberal Austin or not.

    This is how it is going to go as these asshats attempt to spread out of the Democrat cities. A few more of these deaths and they’ll be returning to their parent’s basements in their upscale suburban neighborhoods.

    1. Silas - July 26, 2020

      I was right, he thought he’d respawn, just like when he played Call Of Duty. His last words were ironic. What struck was he said “people who hate us”. Sad thing is I really don’t hate any of them.
      I hate what they’re doing and what they represent, but I don’t knao any of them therefore I can’t really hate them.

      I pretty much think they’re undereducated fools. Blind to truth and reality. Full of emotions and ideas that will, in the end, be their undoing.

      1. Bookdoc - July 26, 2020

        I feel no sympathy. I will admit they will get me to kneel-I can get a steadier shot that way.

    2. Blackie The Kat - July 26, 2020

      I’m not convinced they’re smart enough to know when to ‘call it A day’…………

  3. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

    Lightfoot is not only a Marxist, but–like DeBlasio–she is a stupid Marxist. These buffoons can do a great deal of damage, but are doomed to a short existence before they are spit out of the bottom of the movement and ground under its treads.

    The smarter ones know how to play the political game with skill, and therefore are far more dangerous. Obama is merely the most obvious example.

    1. Gregg - July 26, 2020

      You mean the former and now current “behind the scenes community agitator” didn’t think far enough ahead to create the Sol Alinsky or Bill Ayers memorial school of leftist riot training? He really is quite the lazy ‘leader’, but to be fair, I suppose he didn’t feel the need since so many schools are Marxist learning institutions. Learning is not training.

      The main problem most of these wusses are going to find out is you have to have training and a real plan to ultimately win with anything in life; what you want simply doesn’t happen just because you want it to happen no matter how loud you yell, shout or scream. And resorting to violence, especially when you don’t even really know what your cause is can only result in the failure of your cause.

      Sooner or later, the patriots in this country are going to also ‘get woke’ and push back in a big way, and it won’t be pretty or work out well for you brats. More important, now that masks and face covering in many places are mandated, no one is going to know or care to know who is going to start resisting your cause. And since you all have made the police your number one enemy, how many cops do you think are going to work real hard to come to your assistance? Police, are human, and like everyone else in government service can slow walk responses (especially since the mayors are telling them to stand down anyway) and investigations as well or better than anyone else. Remember the sixties saying: So you hate the cops (pigs), next time you need help, call a hippie). History repeating itself.

      Glad to see the penny finally dropped and mayor Dingbat finally called a riot a RIOT. Even jerks like her eventually have to face reality and tell the NYT to go to hell when it is her butt that is in the firing line. The woke NYT can be safe 3,000 miles away in their offices and cubicles, but things get a little more dicey when there are a couple thousand anarchists in your face every day (“Hunt for Red October” reference there).

  4. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

    As an epidemiological matter, I pretty much agree with this assessment:

    https://twitter.com/MLevitt_NP2013/status/1287036738565738496

    Despite the media propaganda, the spike in positive cases, with greatly increased testing, is actually reflecting a population on the verge of herd immunity.

    But of course the hysteria will be maintained right through the election, at which point it will vanish as if a switch has been flipped (which will in fact be true for the robotic Left).

  5. iratenate - July 26, 2020

    Two ways this will end. First is for everyone to submit to the mob. Second is to start dropping these people in their tracks. For the record, I’m in favor of the latter.

    1. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

      See post below. That is giving the propaganda war victory to the Left.

      They must not only be defeated, but deligitimized.

      1. Gregg - July 26, 2020

        Phineas, I love your comments, but I don’t understand why you seem to be so concerned about creating a martyr. The left already has one in George Floyd. We agree the four students dying at Kent State ended the college riots. The left got their martyrs, so what? The riots were stopped; the left’s martyr’s didn’t help McGovern against ‘law and order’ Nixon in the subsequent election.

        I understand the politics of today where blue ‘tolerance’ for operations like “Occupy Wall Street” which was designed to ensure ‘the One’s’ second term against the Muttster, and now this to beat President Trump. I get it that Trump, in today’s world, can’t go in and bust a few hundred heads and get some deaths attributed to him before the election. But I see no problem in regular citizens protecting their property or person especially when the police can’t or won’t be allowed to do their job. If a couple dozen of these punks assume room temperature in the process, so what? We both see a CW in the offing if things don’t change, and people die in CWs.

        To paraphrase Stalin: a single death is a terrible thing, a million deaths is a statistic. A single martyr like Floyd is a rallying cry, but who will remember the names of X numbers of deaths from numerous cities? What will be remembered is that peace will again break out in America.

        One has to break some heads to make an omelet, and the longer this crap continues, the bigger that omelet will have to be.

        1. phineas gage - July 27, 2020

          Point taken, and I do amend my earlier comment to Nate. An incident involving organized federal forces is problematic. Individual self-defense is entirely justified and proper. I did not mean to conflate the two.

          1. Gregg - July 27, 2020

            Thanks and you are right about WFAN. I tuned it in the last time I was in their range (2013 and 2016) and it is a joke – especially the arrogant know-it-all Francesca.

          2. phineas gage - July 27, 2020

            He and Russo were one of the all-time personality pairings. Each was intolerable on their own, yet together they meshed and created probably the best sports talk show ever.

  6. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

    Of course the NYT is direct communication with them:

    https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2020/07/25/the-left-is-trying-to-build-a-phony-narrative-about-portland-watch-as-it-takes-shape/

    The NYT is among the leaders of Antifa/BLM.

  7. jack johnson - July 26, 2020

    Just like the China Flu, these riots will miraculously end in November if Biden wins the election. If Trump wins they will both continue. The question is how long are we going to stand for it.

    1. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

      No, they will end either way. After the election they have no further political value.

      Remember, it is now all about the panicked female vote.

      1. Jumper Bones - July 26, 2020

        Is there such a thing as an UN-panicked femaie vote? I’m guessing there never was…

      2. Jonesy - July 26, 2020

        The virus fear porn will likely end if Trump gets reelected. That is totally political. I don’t agree that the riots will end at the same time. It is partially political. But the rest of it is wanton violence and violent transformation of the country. It will take time or force, or both to end the rioting. And a healthy dose of voting these Dems out.

  8. njlamer - July 26, 2020

    We’re not taking a knee. We will be taking back our country. With Deadly Force if necessary.

    1. Bookdoc - July 26, 2020

      As I mentioned, I will take a knee-I present a smaller target and I can get a steadier shot.

  9. Bluto - July 26, 2020

    Lori Lightfoot should have “An Appeasement A Day” program where she can tear down some piece of history each day to feed the anarchists’ dream of total authoritarian control.

  10. Robert Miller - July 26, 2020

    When are we going to stop all this BS and start using live ammo?? This is a war, they are all commies that are trying to overthrow this Government?

  11. brian - July 26, 2020

    With regard to the communist cowards using lasers and commercial grade fireworks. These are weapons being yielded as weapons. They are no different than pointing a gun and shooting at a person, and should be treated as such.

    The fed should announce clearly, that anyone, pointing a laser or shooting a firework at any officer or person will be treated as someone with a deadly weapon. While lasers may not be deadly they will blind a person, seriously injuring them. They should announce that anyone acting with intent to injure and kill will have a bullet delivered to their brain pan by the guy on the roof.

    Willing to bet a couple pasty antifa goons developing lead poison will end the use of weapons quickly. Its war… come to a protest with weapons and expect to be shot, period. Demonstrate all you like, but when you pull a weapon, expect to be treated as a combatant, not a ‘protestor’

    Its a war…

  12. Chump Change - July 26, 2020

    I neither bow nor take a knee for any man or man-made cause. I only humble myself before the one who taught me humility and how to subjugate my pride, anger, lust, envy and hate…Christ and the Holy Trinity.

  13. Sam-I-Am - July 26, 2020

    Never take a knee here, I will shoot first.

  14. Morris Shafer - July 26, 2020

    The poor downtrodden frauleins playing human flea circus basketball for peanuts.
    Oh wait, maybe not.
    Take a knee for commiecrat s-hole dumps? Let them burn to the ground for all I care.
    Time to harden your heart for what is coming.
    Did Lizard Lightfoot try a gun free zone sign there in MAGA country?

  15. alonzo1956 - July 26, 2020

    You have a wealth of expertise in the oil and gas industries David, so I would like your opinion on an issue. Which will we hit first, peak oil or peak stupid? I’m hoping for peak stupid, although it isn’t looking very good at the moment. On a different note, the road ahead is already bumpy and likely to get much worse. May peace be with all of us over the next few months as the need for solidarity increases daily. Lets not do anything rash or stupid and wait to respond adequately after the first REAL volley is tossed. We may very well need to have each others backs not too far down the road.

  16. Mr deplorable - July 26, 2020

    I’ll take a knee for a groin shot, so they can never breed.

  17. Silas - July 26, 2020

    To all here advocating we start shooting. Phineas is right. We’d be giving the socialists the justification they so dearly crave. As with the now room temperature blm tool, we need to be aware of our surroundings, armed for self defense and use deadly force only when needed.
    He got killed for threatening somebody who was rightfully in fear of their life. Let’s all bear that in mind.

    1. Silas - July 26, 2020

      Correction, I just read the blm tool actually fired 5 shots at the driver before the driver returned fire with 3 shots. Supposedly the driver showed Rambo he had a firearm as well and that’s when Rambo decided to shoot.

      As with all these stories, it takes time for all the facts to surface.

    1. Silas - July 26, 2020

      As I have been saying from the beginning, all I’s dotted, all T’s crossed. This is for a kill shot and we will only get one chance at it. The finger can’t even go near the trigger until the crosshairs are dead center.

  19. Silas - July 26, 2020

    This is a wake up call

    https://thenationalpulse.com/news/cspan-airs-threat-of-bloodshed-to-trump-supporters-federal-troops/

    Be aware of your surroundings, armed for self defense and use deadly force only when needed.

    1. phineas gage - July 26, 2020

      As the article states, the most salient question is–since all these programs have a caller delay function–did C-SPAN intentionally decide to let that call air live?

      1. Silas - July 26, 2020

        In live media such as this, nothing is an “accident”. The kill switch is used all the time by one of the talk show hosts is Portland. There is a person whose only job is to use the 10 second delay for just that purpose.

        Damn straight skippy it was intentional.

  20. Silas - July 26, 2020

    Little big for concealed carry, but I think it might be a good option.

    https://fnamerica.com/products/pistols/fn-five-seven/

    1. brian - July 26, 2020

      There are a lot of good conceal carries now. You can get an entry for as low as $200 and still be a very good functional, dependable, fire arm. But don’t just go out and buy something without taking a class in safety and handling. Antifa/blm are the dim clowns… not us.

      If in doubt the people in the shops will help you choose whats best for you and your intended option. Do you want a conceal carry for every day carry (EDC) or home defense?? If you plan for a conceal carry you also need to KNOW your local laws, BE prepared to draw and fire and know when to draw and fire. I think the NRA has insurance and lawyers to defend any person carrying, wise to look into it.

      Its a war and the left IS escalating it… be prepared, be safe.

      1. Silas - July 26, 2020

        Like a lot of folks my age, I was raised around firearms. Working on my concealed carry right now. The Oregon State Sheriffs Association has an online class, which is what I’m using. I have already have a home defense pistol. A Remington RP45. 230 grain hollowpoints in a 15 round clip. Technically 14 with one in the chamber, but hey! Who’s counting?

        Until we get the wife hers, I told her hold it wtih both hands, aim for the chest and shoot. If the gun don’t kill them , they’ll shit themselves when it goes off. 😀

        1. brian - July 26, 2020

          LOL… Thats like throwing a brick at someone. These thugs are generally cowards and a report from a cannon will fill their Depends instantly.

          I have a Walther p99 I bought when they first came out. Still love the gun and I like best the double action. I don’t have to remember thumbing a safety off, just aim and pull the trigger.

          Good that you are taking your safety seriously, stay safe my friend.

    2. Paul Abbott - July 27, 2020

      Bought my wife a Taurus PT-111 Millennium G2 for Christmas and she has been very happy with it, not a bad pistol for $199.

  21. Jay Jay Whitcraft - July 26, 2020

    Guess the riots will be going on for many years. I am not kneeling. Jay.

  22. brian - July 26, 2020

    Heres an article, very short, stating teacher and union demands….

    https://www.thecollegefix.com/left-wing-teacher-coalition-issues-demands-police-free-schools-no-charter-or-voucher-programs/?utm_source=whatfinger

    NOTICE – includes police-free schools, moratoriums on new charter/voucher programs

    Can’t have money going to better educational options because that would seriously hamper the marxist indoctrination process. Plus they don’t want standardized testing either because that would highlight just how bad they are at teaching anything.

    If people are wanting to put their kids back into this system… give your head a shake. They hate you, hate what you stand for, hate your kids and work to prevent YOUR kids from ever achieving anything but welfare.

    This bears repeating which boarwild posted earlier…

    https://www.tysknews.com/Depts/New_World_Order/comgoals.htm

    The communists have been openly staing their intensions. This document was read into the Congressional Record back in 63. Read it to see what they plan for your kids in schools.

    its war

    1. Gregg - July 26, 2020

      So the ‘teachers’ want police free schools? Then when the next deranged school shooter kills another dozen kids and TEACHERS and gets away, we can sue the NRA, Trump, and the gun maker and pass even more gun control laws.

      Now there is a real solid plan.

      Hey “good” teachers, hey “good” cops you all had better figure it out real quick that your corrupt bought and paid off unions and their bosses, the Dem politicians, are NOT your friends and are not working in your best interest. The same with the a**holes in the school boards who are too busy firing teachers for saying things like Trump is the president, to actually do anything that will actually improve the schools and your working conditions.

      Where was his tenure protection? Seems like tenure only protects bad teachers. Every teacher in that school should have walked off the job that day. How is it you ‘teachers’ all get big ones when you strike in solidarity for ever more money that your community can’t afford, but can’t find it in your gut to do the right thing and stand up for one of your brethren who was fired for not being PC enough?

      Get your act together or achieve the creditability of the mainstream media and the contempt most everyone has for congress. Noble profession my…
