Hollywood Shuns Black Actors to Appeal to China Market: BLM Says Nothing

A very interesting piece at Axios today by writer Bethany Allen Ebrahimian, detailing how how Hollywood, in its zeal to appeal to the Chinese market since 2012, has systematically discriminated against Black and other dark-skinned actors in favor of those with fairer skin:

Note that she says that an academic study “has found” that what its authors call “colorism” has been taking place since China’s communist government began allowing more U.S. films to come into its gigantic market. Note what she doesn’t say in this tweet: That this study was published way back in 2017.

Here’s an excerpt from her piece at Axios:

Details: The study, published in October 2017, examined more than 3,000 films from between 2009 and 2015 and found that films made after 2012 demonstrated an 8% increase in the number of “very light-skinned” actors in starring roles.

  • The 8% shift meant that “for 1 of every 3 films in this category, the film went from having 2 out of 3 as very light-skinned actors, to having 3 out of 3 very light-skinned actors.”
  • The study’s co-authors called this phenomenon a “light-skin shift.”

The light-skin shift only occurred in film genres that the Chinese government typically permits into the Chinese market, such as action movies and big summer blockbusters. U.S. studios increasingly create these films from start to finish with the Chinese market in mind.

  • Film categories that aren’t typically created with the Chinese market in mind, such as horror and comedy, did not show this “light-skin shift.”
  • It also didn’t occur among voice actors for animated films, which are popular in China and thus are otherwise often shaped by the Chinese market.

[End]

Got all of that? Here are several really damning conclusions to be drawn from this:

  • Hollywood is fine with racism so long as it is racism that creates profits for its studios. This should come as no surprise to anyone, since anyone who has studied Hollywood history knows it has been an utterly and unabashedly racist institution and community since its beginning. After all, Hollywood’s first blockbuster film was D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation,” a film that glorified none other than the Ku Klux Klan.
  • Hollywood studios are so committed to this racist practice that they have fine-tuned it to exist only in the genres of films that appeal to the Chinese market.
  • And here’s the biggest damning conclusion to draw: Black Lives Matter and its supporters in the Democrat Party do not care about this blatantly racist, anti-Black practice coming out of the leftist Hollywood community.

Think about it: This study has been out in the public domain for three long years now. Have you seen anyone from BLM condemning Hollywood as a result? Have you seen a single Democrat speaking out against this rank racism being employed by their Hollywood benefactors?

Even more to the point given the events of this past summer: Why haven’t the Marxist leaders of BLM gone to Hollywood to stage a riot over this? We all know the answer, don’t we?

Here is a graphic illustration of how this Hollywood racism works:

Note how the Black actor and even the dark-skinned Chewbacca are either minimized or disappeared altogether from the poster used in China.

In this excerpt, the author of the 2017 study, Manuel Hermosilla, performs some mental gymnastics to try to distinguish this practice that he calls “colorism” from the rank, smelly racism it truly is:

While it’s tempting to place the light-skin shift within the context of racism in Hollywood, Hermosilla warned against that.

  • “Colorism does not equate to racism,” he and his co-authors wrote. “There may be significant variation in skin tones within races, and colorism may manifest within individuals of the same race.”

Look at that poster again and tell me what the practical effect of “colorism” actually is. Again, the Black actor is singled out for minimization, and the dark-skinned Wookie is eliminated altogether. No doubt Disney would have re-cast the role played by the Black actor altogether for a separate Chinese version of the film if the studio honchos thought they could get away with it.

That isn’t racism? My goodness.

Hollywood always has been and remains a blatantly racist community, and nobody at Black Lives Matter or in the Democrat Party cares.

That’s the truth.

That is all.

A True Public Service: Black Lives Matter Calls for Hollywood Strike

All of a sudden, Black Lives Matter is doing all sorts of public services. – Think about it: The NBA is literally destroying itself in support of the openly-Marxist BLM terrorist group. Major League Baseball is going down that same road. The spoiled college football players at both the University of Texas and Oklahoma University walked out on their practices on Thursday. And who can doubt for a second that the NFL will trod down this road to hari-kari when its season convenes in a couple of weeks?

This is awesome, folks. As I’ve written previously, what all of this virtue-signaling, anti-American nonsense is mainly accomplishing is convincing ordinary Americans who have invested weeks of their lives each year in watching sporting events that there are other things to do in their lives. It turns out that formerly rabid sports fans like me can get along just fine without any of these games to entertain us.

On Friday, the co-founding Marxist of BLM proposed to do an even bigger public service for our country. Apparently too dimwitted to be aware that most of Hollywood has already essentially been on strike for six months now, since the advent of our country’s insane response to the viral gift from China, BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors demanded that all of Hollywood go on strike over the apparently justified police shooting of Jacob Blake.

From a piece at DailyWire:

Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, has called upon all of Hollywood to strike in response to the Jacob Blake shooting.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Cullors said that Hollywood could be a tremendous help to the Black Lives Matter movement if all of the unions, which have been severely hurt by the pandemic, would halt work to push for change.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 13: Patrisse Cullors attends the Frieze Project Artist Patrisse Cullors x Summit x Cultured Magazine Dinner at The West Hollywood EDITION on February 13, 2020 in West Hollywood, California.

“I think it’s time for talent, writers, executives, the guild and SAG to show up for Black lives as well,” Cullors said. “Join this strike. Now is the time and our movement is really looking to unions to step in in a particular way and say ‘We’re going to hold back on allowing for the exploitation and the degradation of Black communities to continue under our watch.’ I think Hollywood can really show up in this moment.”

Cullors said that the strike will focus on getting President Trump out of office and forcing the Democratic Party to deliver on their promises to the black community.

“People are tired of having to say the same thing over and over again, and not seeing the change that we deserve from either party, frankly,” she said. “I think the work that we’re up against right now is to ensure that we can get Trump out of office, but also ensure that we can get the Democratic Party to truly create policies that will make sure that Black people are protected from vigilantes and from police torture.”

[End]

As a reminder, Jacob Blake is a career criminal with a record as long as your arm. The police were called on him by fellow Black people. He resisted arrest and was lunging for a knife he keeps under the front seat of his car when he was shot.

It is over this apparently justified police shooting that the lovely Ms. Cullors demands that all of Hollywood go on strike.

What a fantastic idea! Think about it: A strike by Hollywood would mean that thousands of pedophiles, rapists and sex abusers would be out of work! It would mean a hiatus on the production awful sitcoms and tedious, cut and past police dramas. It would mean a pause on all of the post-apocalyptic junk science put out by Netflix. It would mean another big hit on the bottom line of the evil Disney Corporation, not to mention AT&T and Viacom.

And it would also provide an opportunity for millions of TV-and-movie-addicted Americans to suddenly realize that life goes on without all of that stuff.

It is a simple, unarguable fact that anything that is bad for Hollywood is absolutely great for America. So, go for it, Patrisse! Where can I sign up to help?

Another Day, Another Riot – This Time in Kenosha, Wisconsin

Another day, another riot. – A new riot broke out in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Sunday after police shot a black man multiple times in the back as he was resisting arrest. Sound familiar? Video of the incident pretty clearly shows the man was unarmed, at least while he was outside his car, and the police officers on the scene appeared to warn him repeatedly as he opened the driver’s side door of his car and bent down to reach for something on the floor of the vehicle.

Naturally, craven Democrats like Texas’s Julian Castro weighed into the situation to try to grab some political advantage:

Tragically, the man was shot in front of his screaming children. The man, Jacob Blake, is currently in serious condition at a local hospital.

The airwaves today will no doubt be filled with scripted testimonies from friends and family about what a great, God-fearing man Mr. Blake is. As is frequently the case, the truth about Mr. Blake is another matter:

But hey, the Democrats and media managed to turn George Floyd into a saint who deserved 5 funerals over a span of 9 days, and most Americans bought it even though Floyd had a rap sheet as long as your arm and was a serial woman abuser. How hard can it be to give Mr. Blake the same treatment?

As is always the case, the best way for anyone – black, white, brown or anything else – to avoid being shot by the police is to avoid resisting arrest. Apparently, the police weren’t even attempting to arrest Blake – they were only trying to question him. Official statistics show that well over 90% of Black people who are shot by police were shot while resisting arrest and/or brandishing a firearm. Corrupt politicians like Mr. Castro and their despicable toadies in the news media only increase the frequency of these tragic incidents and put many more lives in danger by attempting to justify that behavior.

This ongoing campaign by the Democrats and media leads directly to this:

Truly, nothing says “social justice” like burning a used car dealership to the ground.

Was this shooting justified? We don’t know yet. Would it have happened had Mr. Blake simply cooperated with the police? We do know the answer to that question, don’t we?

That is all.

Goodyear’s Racial Discrimination Story Just got Even Worse

Just when you think a story about leftist activism can’t possibly get any worse, it inevitably proves you wrong. – That is certainly the case with yesterday’s story about Goodyear, and its efforts to indoctrinate its employees by endorsing the propaganda of the openly-Marxist Black Lives Matter domestic terrorist group.

For those who may have missed it, here is the central aspect of that story:

But that consideration of ever buying from Goodyear ended this morning when news broke about a new attire policy the company has adopted for its employees. Check out this graphic:

So, it’s perfectly fine for Goodyear employees to wear clothing endorsing BLM, an openly-Marxist domestic terrorist group funded by front groups for George Soros and the Democrat Party. But it is not ok for those same employees to wear attire endorsing law enforcement or their desire to make America great again. You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks.

[End]

As I noted in that post yesterday, Goodyear management responded to the story by issuing a mealy-mouthed statement denying the slide had been distributed by the company’s corporate office, but not denying that it in fact reflects formal company policy. In other words, exactly what you would expect from a company that is guilty of the accusation.

This morning, the story got even worse for the company. Check out this clip that was aired by OANN:

That is a leaked recording of an actual internal Goodyear training seminar. In the recording you clearly hear the speaker – who is without any question at all communicating company policy – openly telling people that the company outright endorses race-based discrimination, telling the employees that wearing “black lives matter or LGBTQ pride on their face coverings, shirts or wristbands…will be deemed appropriate…However, if any associate wears all, blue or white lives matter shirts or face coverings, that will be not appropriate.”

Get it? Black lives good, white lives bad.

Not only is this policy advocating actual race-based discrimination reprehensible, it is also very likely completely illegal under U.S. law. The company could probably get away with denying the right to wear shirts or other clothing displaying slogans like “blue lives matter” and “all lives matter,” but directly punishing employees for for “white lives matter” stuff could truly be a bridge too far.

All of which explains why the only intelligent policy for a company to adopt is a policy against any sloganeering in the workplace. But at Goodyear, it is obvious that the temptation for management to engage in politically-correct virtue signaling was too strong to resist.

Let the lawsuits begin.

That is all.

William Barr Takes off the Gloves Regarding BLM

This is a big, big deal, folks. During an interview with Mark Levin aired Sunday night on Fox News, Attorney General William Barr took the gloves completely off regarding the Black Lives Matter domestic terrorist group that, along with Antifa, serves as the insurrectionist arm of the Democrat Party.

Some of Mr. Barr’s quotes appear below. Read them carefully and you will see the U.S. Attorney General speaking with perfectly clear eyes about the true nature of BLM, which is indistinguishable from its fellow Democrat-sponsored terrorist group, Antifa, as I have been pointing out to readers here for weeks now:

The United States is grappling with a new form of “urban guerrilla warfare” driven by the left’s “lust for power,” Attorney General William Barr told “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday.

Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization —  which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group —  is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”

“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.

Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”

“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”

[End]

Now, watch as Barr links Antifa/BLM directly to their sponsors in the communist Democrat Party:

The group’s radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party’s far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. “The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.

It began the day Trump won in 2016, “and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance,” Barr told Levin.  “They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it’s because of the desire for power that the left wants.”

Power has become a “secular religion of the left,”  Barr asserted. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us…and it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory. And it outrages them.”

[End]

Man, it’s like he’s been reading Today’s Campaign Update or something.

I mentioned this in the Monday News Roundup, but it deserves special focus: These comments and more that Mr. Barr made during his interview with Levin are not normal. They are not the ordinary, scripted talking points you see attorneys general roll out in the normal course of their daily business. AGs are normally careful not to offend the opposition party in congress, especially when it controls a majority of the House of Representatives and thus the DOJ budget.

Barr’s remarks here are essentially a notice to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden’s elder-abusing handlers that the gloves are now off. No more playing by the Marquess of Queensbury rules in which one punch is politely exchanged for another. Barr’s rhetoric signals that he’s now going into cage match mode.

It is also important to note the implications of Barr’s truth-telling about BLM as it relates the pro sports and entertainment industry. Barr’s equation of BLM with Antifa is a de facto declaration that he considers BLM a domestic terrorist organization, as he does Antifa.

This would be the very same BLM group whose logo now appears on NBA uniforms and courts; the same BLM group whose logo appears on Major League Baseball uniform jerseys; the same BLM group whose logos will appear on NFL uniforms this fall unless something changes. It is the very same BLM group to which everyone in Hollywood and the news media has genuflected and declared their undying fealty.

This is a big, big deal. Let’s hope we don’t see any “clarifying statements” from DOJ today trying to walk any of it back. BLM/Antifa and their communist Democrat sponsors are direct threats to our nation’s survival, and it is impossible to defeat an enemy unless you can first properly identify them with clear, focused eyes.

That is all.

Democrat Mayors are the Lynchpins for America’s Marxist Insurgency

Hey, there’s one good thing happening in New York City. – For three days running now, anti-Marxist protesters in New York City have poured paint on the “Black Lives Matter” script that nitwit Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered painted on 5th Avenue in front of the Trump Tower Building.

Here is how that went on Saturday:

The first key to defeating an enemy is to understand and acknowledge his true nature.

For those who have been living under a rock for the last six weeks and may have missed it, Black Lives Matter is a radical Marxist organization whose goal is the destruction of the American Republic and the installation of a brutal, Venezuela-style socialist regime. Black Lives Matter is in fact indistinguishable from Antifa: A domestic terrorist organization funded by George Soros front groups and sponsored by the Democrat Party, just as the Ku Klux Klan was funded and sponsored by the Democrat Party for more than a century.

The woman in this video was arrested for telling the truth about BLM and Mayor de Blasio, who is himself a committed Marxist. Once you understand that about de Blasio, every action he has taken over the past months – the defunding of the police, the rampant releasing of violent prisoners from the city’s jails, the refusal to allow law enforcement to deal effectively with riots and looting and the burning of vast swaths of the city by Antifa/BLM – makes perfect sense.

America today is facing a Marxist insurgency by led by the Democrat Party, and the Democrat mayors who run the big cities are that movement’s lynchpins.

Here’s Mayor de Blasio in his younger days, when he used his real name, Warren Wilhelm.

Warren Wilhelm : Family tree by Tim DOWLING - Geneanet

Other Democrat mayors around the country are also integrally involved in leading this insurgency. The Mayor of Seattle, the reprehensible Jenny Durkan, is no different than de Blasio. Once you understand her true nature and goals, her active support of the illegal occupation of six square blocks of her city for a month – the CHAZ/CHOP – makes perfect sense.

On way to long-term changes, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan quietly ...

Ditto Chicago’s freakshow mayor Lori Lightfoot. Once you understand her true nature and goals, which are aimed at sowing chaos and destroying the foundations of law and order and individual liberty, then her looking the other way as mostly-black neighborhoods are shot up every weekend by roving gangs of thugs makes perfect sense. As does her refusal to allow her law enforcement officers to properly deal with riots and defend themselves from the Marxist rioters, which ended up getting 18 officers seriously injured on Friday.

Sounding a 'Distress Signal,' Lightfoot Warns Chicago is Falling ...

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey also belongs in this literal murderer’s row of despicable Marxist Democrat mayors. He is, after all, the limp-wristed simpleton who ordered his city’s police to stand down as the Democrat-sponsored rioters turned Ilahn Omar’s congressional district into a burned-out shell that now closely resembles her home country of Somalia.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey responds after being booed out of ...

Add to this list the Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, who has spent the week outrageously lying about the activities of federal law enforcement officers acting in his city to prevent of the federal courthouse and other federal property from being destroyed by the Antifa/BLM rioters there.

Here’s a shot of Wheeler posing with his ideological role model:

Mayor Ted Wheeler on Twitter: "Mayors, city leaders, state ...

National Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (who else?) and their corrupt toadies in the national news media have now decided to turn Wheeler’s lies about the federal LEOs operating in his city into a new utterly false narrative. Adding fuel to that fire is the Oregon Attorney General, another Soros-funded flunky named Ellen Rosenblum (pictured below) who yesterday filed a lawsuit to try to get an Obama-appointed federal judge to order the federal LEOs to stand down, presumably so that the BLM/Antifa thugs will be free to burn the federal buildings to the ground.

Oregon Attorney General Seeks More Funding For Elder Abuse Cases ...

I’ve talked a lot about the destruction being done to our country by Democrat governors as they use the Wuhan Virus as an excuse to willingly destroy their states’ economies and school systems in order to influence the November elections. But the mayors pictured here – and many others across the country – may actually present an even bigger threat to the nation’s survival for the simple fact that they control the police departments in their respective cities. What better way to sow the chaos that Democrats now hope will lead to an outright communist revolution in America than by refusing to allow the police to do their jobs?

Remember the faces pictured in this piece, because they are the literal faces of evil in our time.

Marxist Democrats are Convinced That This is Their Moment

They’re coming for your churches… – As we have repeatedly pointed out, Marxist movements are always anti-Christian and anti-Jewish endeavors.  The current Marxist movement being mounted in America today by the Soros-funded Antifa/Black Lives Matter/Democrat Party alliance is also allied with Islam, which only makes it even more focused on its fervor to destroy other major religious symbols and institutions.

Last weekend, this anti-religious fervor resulted in the highly-suspicious burning of three Christian churches across the country, including a 250 year-old Spanish mission in California. That campaign has continued this week with the desecration of Catholic symbols in various cities in the U.S. and Canada.

From a report by the Daily Caller:

A Catholic church in New Haven, Connecticut, has reported vandalism as attacks on churches continue throughout the U.S.

Pastor John Paul Walker of St. Mary’s Parish, which consists of both St. Mary’s Catholic Church and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, announced in a Thursday Facebook post that St. Joseph’s Church was vandalized sometime between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday.

The Archdiocese of Hartford also shared a Facebook post confirming that “a person or group of persons had painted anarchist and satanic symbols on the doors of St. Joseph Church in New Haven.”(RELATED: Statue Of Jesus Vandalized At Catholic Church In Canada)

“This follows an apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces throughout the nation, as evidenced by incidents in Chattanooga, Queens, Boston, Sacramento, and Ocala,” the pastor wrote on Facebook. “The underlying motive of these sacrilegious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.”

News of the vandalism comes after Fr. Wilbert Chin Jon of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary confirmed to the Daily Caller Thursday that vandals spray painted and used marker or chalk to deface a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at Sacred Heart Church in Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday around 1:30 a.m.

[End]

The efforts by Democrat governors like Gavin Newsom, Phil Murphy and Gretchen Whitmer to continue their illegal discrimination against religious freedom only encourages this kind of activity by marginalizing and de-humanizing Christians and Jews, just as Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong did during the 20th century. The timid response by leaders of those faiths seen thus far only encourages the thugs to double down.

At some point, America’s Christians and Jews will either have to engage in massive civil disobedience or this highly organized and coordinated campaign to marginalize them will only continue to grow.

The same is likely true for the rest of the law-abiding, civilized population as well. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the Marxist Democrats believe this year is their moment to truly transform the country permanently. Everything we are being subjected to by these Democrat governors and mayors related to COVID-19 is all about population control, the destruction of free enterprise, the destruction of wealth, the destruction of real learning in our society, the destruction of social norms and the subjugation of disfavored parts of the population.

Sadly, thanks to the constant peddling of panic porn by the corrupt news media, more and more Republican governors and Mayors are helping them along. Whether they do so knowingly or unwittingly doesn’t matter: Every new lockdown order, every new shutting down of specific classes of businesses, every new limitation on the number of people who can attend church or Synagogue on the Sabbath, every new ordered destruction of thousands of jobs pushes our nation closer and closer to the critical mass needed to elect a new wave of Marxist Democrat true believers with the same mindset of AOC and Ilhan Omar into office.

Every closing of a school and every pretense that “distance learning” can somehow be equally effective as attendance in a classroom and collaboration with friends and fellow students also aids the Marxist cause. A crucial goal of this “revolution” is to destroy any and all sense of community among the people. It is far more easy to control a massive population of frightened and isolated subjects than a community of men and women dedicated to a common cause.

As flawed as our public schools are, that sense of community first develops among the children as they go about learning together, playing sports together, joining clubs together and marching in bands and singing in choirs together. This is why pretty much every other free nation on the face of the earth is moving rapidly to reopening their schools this fall.

The almost rabid focus by the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media on shutting our schools down in the face of all available science arrayed in favor of opening them tells you all you need to know on this subject. Remember: These are the very same Democrats/corrupt journalists who screamed to high heaven when President Trump cancelled U.S. participation in the fraudulent money grab that is the Paris Climate Accord. They told us the world would end when Trump pulled us out of another international consensus – the Iran deal.

We have a global consensus now – backed by all available science and data – that reopening the schools is the thing to do, and now these exact same people contend that America should be alone and isolated and ignore the science on this specific subject.

Think logically about this. There is only one possible reason why they are doing this.

At some point, if these evil Marxists do not relent, freedom loving Americans will either be forced to engage in massive civil disobedience or see our freedoms perish forever. That is the path the Marxist Democrats and their corrupt media toadies are taking us down, willingly and with malice aforethought.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Sessions’ Last Stand, Biden/Bottoms 2020, and Fauci is a Menace

Today is Beauregard’s last stand. – Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the former do-nothing Attorney General who allowed Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to run the Department of Justice for two solid years, makes his last stand today in Alabama. He trails opponent Tommy Tuberville by a wide margin in the polling leading into today’s GOP primary runoff election to determine which Republican gets to run Democrat Doug Jones out of the U.S. Senate.

In typical blunt fashion, President Donald Trump made his preference in this election known on Twitter yesterday.:

Just a reminder that everything that happened with the Soviet-style Mueller Special Counsel operation stemmed from Jeff Sessions’ own mendacity. This man is one of our country’s worst disasters, and fully deserves the electoral humiliation coming to him today at the hands of Alabama’s voters.

Speaking of our nation’s worst human disasters… – The leftist nitwits at the Dan Abrams operation “Mediaite” got a case of the vapors yesterday after a senior White House staffer shared a mean cartoon targeting Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man who has done more to destroy our nation’s economy and school system than any person alive.

From the piece at Mediaite:

White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino publicly blasted White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci Sunday on Facebook.

Scavino posted a cartoon by conservative illustrator Ben Garrison which showed Fauci as a faucet flushing the economy down a sink, with labels including “Indefinite lockdown!” and “Shut up and obey!”

“Sorry, Dr. Faucet! At least you know if I’m going to disagree with a colleague, such as yourself, it’s done publicly — and not cowardly, behind journalists with leaks,” Scavino commented. “See you tomorrow!”

[End]

Looks like a pretty accurate cartoon. Mediaite’s only upset because cartoonist Ben Garrison captured the reality of Fauci and all the damage he has done and continues to do to our society so succinctly. The man is a menace to our very survival.

In case you missed it, Fauci complained to one eager reporter the other day that he has not briefed the President in “at least two months.” This is what we know in the real world as great and reassuring news. Given that Fauci has yet to be right about anything at all related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like a peachy idea to keep him the hell away from the President so that policy decisions might be made on actually accurate information coming from others.

If Mr. Trump never speaks to this little menace again, America will be a much safer place.

She’s a leader with real leadership who is leading by exercising leadership with leading. She leads the entire nation by leading with leadership, and leads with more leadership than all those other non-leading leader losers hoping to become Joe Biden’s running mate. – Here is Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ argument for why she should become Joe Biden’s running mate:

Biden/Bottoms 2020! It will be the greatest bumper sticker ever!

Oh, please, please, please let this happen.

News you will not see reported on CNN or the New York Times, part 99,353:

This is what Fredo Cuomo and Jake Tapper refer to as a “civil rights group,” folks. You could never make this stuff up.

A sports journalist piece everyone should read. – Sports journalist Jason Whitlock, who famously called out the NFL and Black Lives Matter last week, published a terrific op-ed at OutKick.com yesterday. It’s a piece every American should read.

Here’s an excerpt:

It’s the media’s addiction to Twitter. We now crowdsource our ethics, standards and guiding principles. The Twitter mob is America’s ombudsman.

Journalism is dead. It’s been sick for a long time. The widespread usage of the internet placed journalism on life support in the 1990s. Facebook and Twitter pulled the plug.

Big Tech killed the greatest human experiment, the United States of America. You can’t sustain freedom and fairness with mob crowdsourced ethics and standards.  By definition, a mob is disorderly, riotous and lawless. A mob is unconcerned with truth.

The theory driving the importance of a “a free press” is that journalists will deliver truthful information to the public and the public will make good decisions based on that information.

Feed the public social media-friendly, clickbait narrative lies disguised as racial-justice truth and you provoke the kind of unrest currently sweeping this nation. Media black lies matter. They agitate old wounds, sow discord and distrust, undermine patriotism and prevent us from addressing real problems.

The annual murder of thousands of black men is a legitimate problem. Social media has us fixated on the annual murder of a half dozen. Black lies matter, especially when they’re used to conceal a political agenda detached from the advancement of freedom.

Journalists should not be political partisans.

[End]

As I keep telling you, the death of journalism threatens to become the death of our country if we do not find some way to hold the corporate, clickbait-focused media giants accountable for their intentional spreading of rank falsehoods. My one disagreement with Whitlock here is that he puts the main focus of his blame on social media, where these thousands of corrupt journalists manifest their outrageous biases every day.

But social media is just a facilitator here, a convenient platform. The truth is that the death of real journalism in our country took hold in our nation’s universities during the 1960s and 1970s with the new focus on “advocacy journalism” replacing the former focus on hard work, proper sourcing and the telling of the objective truth.

The central problem here is that for the last half century students in journalism schools all over the country have been brainwashed to believe that there is actually no such thing as objective truth. Once you lose the concept of truth, then all journalists feel justified in becoming fiction writers and reporters as they intentionally slant the “news” to favor their own personal pet causes.

Fundamentally, this is how a blatantly Marxist, domestic terrorist organization like Black Lives Matter gets turned into a “civil rights group” in the eyes of the entirety of the American media establishment.

The brainwashing will continue until every one of us submits.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: No Justice in St. Louis, A Recall Drive Targets Durkan, and Trump Sends Dems a Blunt Message

The only “justice” available in St. Louis is the kind paid for by George Soros. – The St. Louis couple who brandished a pistol and rifle to protect their homes from a group of about 300 aggressive BLM Marxists who had broken down the gate to invade their community had their home invaded again on Friday. This time the invasion – and confiscation of their guns – was conducted by police acting on the orders of Obama-funded city prosecutor Kimberly Gardner:

So, a group of potentially violent rioters can destroy the legally-placed entrance to a gated community and invade private property (the streets in the neighborhood are owned by the HOA) and this “circuit attorney” will do nothing. But anyone who brandishes a permitted firearm as a means of protecting their own home will be subject to search and seizure and potential prosecution.

This is absolutely outrageous, and another instance where we see the U.S. Department of Justice doing nothing to intervene. William Barr, where are you?

The only real justice being executed in the United States right now appears to be whatever comes from the President’s desk. – Corrupt Marxist Minnesota Governor Tim Walz found that out the hard way late Friday evening, as his despicable request for a federal government bailout to repair the riot damage done to Minneapolis was outright denied by the Trump Administration.

From a story at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd’s death.

Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a “major disaster” for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd’s May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz.

The governor’s spokesman, Teddy Tschann, confirmed late Friday that the request for federal aid was denied.

“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” Tschann said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”

Oh, darn. Oh, heck. Oh, that nasty old Donald Trump.

Thank God for Donald Trump and his clear-eyed view of this world. These riots were Democrat Party riots. BLM and Antifa, the two domestic terrorist groups that organized and managed the riots, are nothing but Democrat Party armed support groups, just as the Ku Klux Klan was for more than a century in this country. These Democrat Party riots were enabled and urged on by Democrat mayors and Democrat governors and simply do not in any way merit the intervention of the U.S. taxpayer to help to pay for the damage they caused.

This Trump ruling was a big middle finger to Gov. Walz, and it sends a very important signal to the Democrat Party and its armed terrorists: You break it, you buy it.

It is the only proper signal to send.

News you won’t see reported on CNN or MSNBC. – A Washington state judge approved a petition effort to recall despicable Democrat/Marxist Mayor Jenny Durkan, the feckless nitwit who facilitated the June riots in her city that led to the illegal establishment of the infamous CHAZ/CHOP area.

From a story at the Washington Times:

A King County Superior Court judge has approved a petition for an election to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

The Seattle Times reports the ruling Friday on charges filed by a group of five people last month comes after weeks of local protests against racism and police brutality – sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Once any recall petition is approved, signatures are needed to qualify for a special election ballot. The petitioners must, within 180 days, collect valid signatures from a number of voters equal to 25% of the votes cast in the last election. In this case, signatures from more than 50,000 Seattle voters would be needed.

The Durkan petitioners’ recall effort accuses the mayor of “endanger(ing) the peace and safety of the community” by allowing police to “leak false information about fabricated crimes and threats to the media” and issuing a citywide curfew without sufficient notice to the public. The petitioners also accused Durkan of restricting certain property rights in downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill, the neighborhood where many of the protests took place.

In a response Saturday, Durkan’s chief of staff, Stephanie Formas, said the mayor “consistently has acted to protect the City’s public health and safety and to respect the constitutional rights to peaceful protesters.”

[End]

The statement by Durkan’s chief of staff is an outright lie. Durkan willingly facilitated the actions of the rioters every step of the way, including ordering her police to stand down as the domestic terrorists seized control of the 3rd precinct police building and a city hall annex. She only relented and allowed the police to do their jobs after the rioters broke into her own gated community and vandalized her home.

Seattle Mayor Durkan's 'Summer of Love' - Ricochet

No Mayor in U.S. history – with the possible exceptions of Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot – has more richly deserved to be booted out of office than Durkan. If this recall effort fails, then any thinking person still living in Seattle with the means to do so should flee the area, because all hope for avoiding an inevitable descent into utter chaos will be lost.

Good luck and Godspeed.

That is all.
