Six F-1 drivers take a stand against hypocrisy

Before the Austrian F-1 GP, Max Verstappen, Antonio Giovinazzi, Daniil Kvyat, Carlo Sainz, Charles Leclerc and Kimi Raikkonen chose to stand while 14 other drivers took the knee in support of BLM.

Good to see that some sports stars aren’t prepared to be shamed into political stunts especially one driven (no pun intended) by one of the biggest hypocrites in the paddock, who drives for a manufacturer with a history of slavery.

As we pointed out last week, Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo perfectly summed up the fear of being cancelled for not speaking up.

Here’s betting all 14 kneelers haven’t even read the reprehensible Marxist manifesto of #BLM movement they knelt for.

We can’t wait for the next woke cause. It will probably be surrounding climate change. Just think of how mothers dropping their kids off to soccer practice in a second hand SUVs will be chastised by these F-1 kneelers as they whiz around tracks in 5mpg race cars. Never mind that they came to the circuit in helicopters after landing at a nearby airport on private jets post spending half the season in coronavirus lockdown on 300ft super yachts with bikini clad supermodels.

Americans should be more afraid of Doctors than the Police

Americans should be far more petrified of their surgeons than of the police. Of the 50,000,000 engagements by police each year in America, only 0.002% result in deaths at the hands of cops. Americans are 254x more likely to die from medical errors than from rogue law enforcement officers.

Civilian assaults of police officers total c.48,000 per annum. Note c.9,700 or those involve deadly weapons (guns, knives, swords, axe, motor vehicles, shovels, bats, pipes). 13,700 officers that receive injuries require medical treatment.

Note that of the 990 people killed by police per annum, 250 are black, a majority of them armed. Therefore blacks have a 0.00064% chance of death at the hands of the police. In other words, 99.9994% chance of not being killed by law enforcement. So the narrative that they are all trigger happy lunatics is patently false.

2,600 blacks are killed by other blacks according to FBI data. That is a 0.0064% chance. Or 99.994% chance of dying at the hands of another black perpetrator. Blacks are 55x more likely to be murdered by another black than a white perpetrator. These are just facts.

A great movie worth streaming is ‘Uncle Tom‘ which beats down the narrative portrayed in the media of the black minority.

AOC admits why Dems picked Joe Biden

AOC

Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) in response to Republican Senator Ted Cruz’s tweet that the ‘Democrats support “riots”, “vandals” and “anarchists“‘ by tweeting it being exactly why they “nominated…Joe Biden.”

She has yet to respond to Cruz’ follow up tweet here.

Senate Democrats refuse to condemn mob violence

True colours. This isn’t even a bill. Republican Senator Mike Lee lambasted Senate Democrats for not condemning mob violence in a proposal for a non-binding resolution. The reason was that they refused was because the Democrats wanted President Trump specifically noted despite the fact that the resolution spoke of “all elected officials.

As Senator Lee said, “People are being shot! Businesses are being looted. Innocent Americans are being attacked and threatened. Lives are being ruined. Communities are burning!…the woke ideology depends on federal money…the mob hates America on America’s dime…it’s time to cut off their allowance…the American people would be very interested to know who stands for them.”

For as horrible many on the left think President Trump is, if these are the standards of the opposition party, do Americans see them as a platform for any voter to aspire to?

Trump flips the bird at the self-loathing left

Just brilliant. Instead of cowering to the mob with political correctness, Trump announces he is building a national garden full of statues celebrating American heroes. Love really will “Trump” hate.

Liberal heads must be exploding. Basically the message to these self-loathing lefties pulling down monuments – I’m going to build a bigger memorial which unites America by displaying the country’s exceptionalism.

The softest part of any true patriotic American is a pride in its achievements, devotion to country and flag.

No doubt the left will criticize the people chosen to be erected on the basis of identity politics which in a sense shows that they really do like monuments after all.

Trump – master of the troll.

NFL turning the playing field into a political football

The NFL is making all the missteps to destroy the franchise. It thinks that introducing segregation will solve for racism.

The NFL is planning to play “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” dubbed the “Black national anthem,” ahead of “Star Spangled Banner‘ before all Week 1 games. Watch this become ahead of every game.

Why don’t Hispanics or other minorities that were victims of police brutality get their anthem played too? What about the trans community? Are they any less worthy?

According to ESPN, the NFL is also considering “listing the names of victims on uniforms through decals on helmets or patches on jerseys” and will likely “produce educational programs about the victims.”

What if some of those victims were armed and shooting at police? Will they be honoured? Will their true histories be taught or airbrushed as defenseless martyrs?

Before the NFL starts virtue signaling how “with the times” it is, do fans want to be lectured to by a league where 713 different players between 2000-2014 have been arrested for the following shocking list of charges – rape, murders, shootings, animal cruelty, prostitution rings, assault, robbery, illegal gun possession, DUI and resisting arrest.

Maybe list the names of those 713 players on uniforms for their crimes first.

There isn’t a soul on the planet who isn’t aware of what is going on. For the overwhelming majority of those who condemn racism, why do the left think drumming ever more sanctimonious activism is necessary? If the belief is such tokenism will swing racists, this identity politics based tribalism will force the exact opposite outcome of that intended. Shaming doesn’t work, especially if wrapped in hypocrisy.

NYC Mayor lowers the bar

Is this the standard? Please tell us that Democrats like NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio are setting the bar in the moral high ground stakes. Didn’t Michelle Obama say “when they go low, we go high“?

After De Blasio announced he was lopping $1 billion from the NYPD budget he is apparently commissioning a “Black Lives Matter” mural on 5th Ave outside Trump Tower. Is that how taxpayers want their money spent?

We remind Mayor DeBlasio that DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was smashed by BLM for “appeasing white liberals” when she painted the same mural and renamed the square.

We guess the NYPD still remember the BLM chants of “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon.”

Liberal logic.

We say the Democrats are making perfect examples of their hollow virtue signaling and pathetic identity politics laced stunts by the day.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer forgetting George Floyd’s name while trying to honour him and wearing African Kente scarves without understanding the meaning, allowing CHAZ until it hit Seattle Mayor Durkan’s home (literally), tweets about Mt Rushmore, having Congresswoman Ilhan Omar chant “abolish the police” etc. Now DeBlasio. Unhinged.

CHAZ gets the CHOP. Democrat Mayor acts after her $7m mansion threatened

Jen

Liberal logic at its finest. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) has finally sent in the police to clear out the “summer of love” after her own $7.6m mansion was threatened. This tweet captured it all. Good videos of the action here.

We wonder whether CHAZ should take their grievances to the UN Security Council and ask for sanctions on the US for invading a peaceful sovereign nation. After all, #AllNationsMatter.

Funny how politicians start to act when things begin to personally impact them.

Michigan Governor to make racially motivated 911 calls a hate crime

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer gives a coronavirus update from Lansing on Monday, April 6, 2020.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer says she wants to make racially motivated 911 calls hate crimes. It is already against the law to make false police or 911 calls. So why the need for such legislation?

Will that law apply if a white burglar breaks into the home of a person of colour? Will the coloured occupants be guilty of a hate crime if they call to say the white criminal is endangering their lives?

Or is this just a cynical ploy to ensure the recall petition (to oust Whitmer) – which requires 1,062,647 valid signatures in a 60-day window over the next 180 days to qualify for the statewide ballot – fails? Hmmm.

Where is BLM?

Where is #BlackLivesMatter? Six children have been killed just in the last week to gun violence in Chicago. BLM has been silent. Don’t all black lives matter?

On South Michigan Ave near 116th St, a shrine has been erected in memory of Chicago children killed by gunfire. 100s are inscribed in stones.

We posted a video of Nestride Yumga who pointed out the movement’s hypocrisy here.

Truly tragic. Where is the mainstream media reporting on this?
