Democrat mayor issues senseless apology

Mayor Paul Bodeur has tweeted out an apology to residents in Melrose, Massachusetts for a police officer who wrote “All Lives Matter” on a traffic sign.

Melrose Police Chief Michael L. Lyle, said he will be investigating the action. His public statement is so pathetic. Do residents want time wasted on rubbish like this? Demanding signs get approved by the boss?

It is amazing that Democrat mayors are actually wasting time over something so trivial and making grandiose apologies to residents who probably didn’t pay it any mind, much less took any offence, while launching needless investigations into hate speech to pillory an officer who only sought “inclusion”. Which begs the question why traffic signs are being used for propaganda instead of road safety?

Welcome to 2020 and the Democratic Party platform – segregation. Good to see it is staying true to its roots that are wedded in identity politics. Perhaps the mayor should suggest the police chief put up “ACAB – All Cops Are Bad” to be in step with the cancel culture and appease the mob to promote progressivism.

It is really getting too stupid. Perhaps the sign should read, “Mayor, drink cement and harden up!” We’re sure Melrose residents would see much more value in that.

NYC mayor helps paint BLM outside Trump Tower while gun crime soars

As shootings in NYC skyrocket triple digit percentages and NYPD officers quit at records levels, hard-left Democrat NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio decided to join in the divisive fun of painting “Black Lives Matter” outside Trump Tower with Rev Al Sharpton.

Did the mayor forget the BLM chants of “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon” or “What do we want? Dead cops!! When do we want them? Now!” when their supporters referred to the NYPD?

Apart from lacking originality, perhaps the mayor might have considered calling DC Mayor Muriel Bowser who would have told him she was heavily criticized by BLM leaders for “appeasing white liberals” with her virtue signaling mural outside the White House.

We remind readers of the Marxist roots of the Black Lives Matter organization which has outsourced its donation administration to a group which has a convicted terrorist as a board member.

DeBlasio is no stranger to sick stunts. Early last year he bathed skyscrapers in pink lights to celebrate late term abortion legislation. According to a NYC Health Department report released in May 2018, between 2012 and 2016 black mothers terminated 136,426 pregnancies and gave birth to 118,127 babies. Shouldn’t all black lives matter? Compare that to the 11 blacks shot and killed by the NYPD in 2019, all of them in possession of a deadly weapon.

We wonder if DeBlasio would like to explain how he thinks he will advance the fortunes of the black community by stunts that alienate other groups and policies that all but guarantee to make them less safe.

As we keep saying, the more that liberals allow their derangement to be exposed to sunlight, the more the ranks of the silent majority will swell to reject the antisocial behavior the left champions in November. Keep up the good work.

JK Rowling’s beautiful forehand winner

JKR

JK Rowling’s beautiful return of service to Jennifer Finney Boylan for her display of utter cowardice in capitulating to the cancel culture mob. Game, set & match.

Liberal artists cave to the cancel culture days after co-signing a letter condemning it

Remember those brave maverick left-leaning artists who co-signed JK Rowling’s letter to decry the cancel culture we wrote about yesterday?

Several days later, several have withdrawn their support after surrendering to the threat of being cancelled themselves.

Author Jennifer Finney Boylan tweeted, “I did not know who else had signed that letter…I thought I was endorsing a well-meaning, if vague, message against internet shaming. I did know Chomsky, Steinem, and Atwood were in, and I thought, good company.

Historian Kerri Greenidge also tweeted, “I do not endorse this @Harpers letter. I am in contact with Harpers about a retraction.

So let us get this right. The very people who co-signed a letter highlighting the anxiety of cancel culture over the anxiety that they might be cancelled for being anxious about cancel culture due to guilt-by-association just proved the point way better than JK Rowling’s letter ever could.

So much for free speech. Cancel culture is alive and well.

You’ll never guess who the BLM fundraising arm has as its vice-chair…

As the kneeling for Black Lives Matter continues at sporting events across the globe, why not let one of the BLM founders, Alicia Garza, enrich our understanding of the Marxist group some more.  Garza has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, aka Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Shakur assassinated a New Jersey state trooper and now lives in exile in Cuba. She was also involved in bombings and several executions of cops in New Jersey, New York and San Francisco.

It gets worse.

Susan Rosenberg, the vice-chair for the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the administration of the donations made to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist who was sentenced to 58 years for weapons and explosives charges while a member of the May 19th Communist Organization. She spent 16 years in prison before President Bill Clinton commuted her sentence on his last day. Among other things, Rosenberg was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison in 1979.

Why does the mainstream media keep portraying the BLM organization as a clean, wholesome and noble organization with good intentions when it has such reprehensible beliefs and practices utter hypocrisy when it comes to ALL black lives?

Trudeau before the ethics commissioner again?

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau looks like he will be under fire again from the ethics commissioner for the third time since being in office. This time for members of his family raking in large speaking fees from the WE Charity which the government has been providing some funding to for certain programs.

WE Charity had made the claim that it had “never paid an honorarium” to the PM’s mother, Margaret Trudeau.

CBC reported,

The PM’s mother and brother have both been paid to appear at WE Charity events. Margaret Trudeau collected $250,000 in speaking fees at 28 events, while Alexandre received about $32,000 for speaking at 8.

It noted,

Prime Minister Trudeau and his government have been under fire since announcing on June 25 they were awarding a $19.5 million sole-source contract to WE Charity to administer the Canada Student Service Grant, a $912 million program offering grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 to post-secondary students in return for supervised volunteer hours.”

Nothing to see here. Maybe Trudeau’s family forget to mention the payments to him at the dinner table.

NYPD Blues – 411% surge in cops quitting the force

It seems that NYPD officers are quitting in force after Mayor Bill DeBlasio said he’d cut $1 billion off its budget.

Yesterday the NYPD claimed that 179 cops filed for retirement between June 29 and Monday, a 411% increase over the 35 who quit during the same time period in 2019.

One NYPD cop said, “There’s just droves and droves of people retiring. But there’s no surprise here, who the hell wants to stay on this job?…Why would you want to stay on this job when people don’t appreciate what you do?”

Between June 29 and July 5, NYC saw 74 shooting incidents with 101 victims versus 26 shootings with 33 victims during that time last year. Meanwhile, 18 people were murdered in NYC last week — 6 more than the same period last year.

Defund the police? Seems like De Blasio will have to Defend the NYPD soon before he has a crimewave on his hands.

Democratic politician pens his own hate crime hoax in Oregon

You have to love it when the very systemic racism we’re told is so rife in America caused a Democratic political candidate, Jonathan Lopez, to pen and post a letter to himself and take his claim of a hate crime to the police because he couldn’t find it in reality.

His letter said,

Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county…we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f–king Mexicans in the area!

Lopez took to social media to peddle his hate hoax by uploading the letter and claiming he “holds no resentment for whomever wrote this…just simply heartbroken for the lack of knowledge, education, and respect missing…I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life.”

Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston expressed his dismay after the conclusion of the investigation with the following comment:

The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today…Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.”

After Lopez admitted his crime he tried to downplay it by saying that things had spiraled out of control. Really? Who knew?

Is this why Democrats want to defund the police so they don’t have the resources to catch out hoaxes?

His case will be forwarded to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office for initiating a false report, a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Welcome to 2020 where the real racists are the very people claiming they’re the victims.

Obama vs Obama

Larry Elder puts together a wonderful montage on Obama vs Obama.

Elder argues that “Commencement Speaker Obama” had a positive view of race relations, and he said race didn’t hold him back when it came to running for president. However, “Political Obama” said racism is “part of our DNA,” and he seemed to treat racial conflict as a way of encouraging black people to vote for the Democratic Party. Which is correct?
