Yelp to list businesses accused of racism

For those who don’t know, Yelp is a site that collects ratings about all manner of services – from restaurants, plumbers, electricians to hair salons. One can even search exclusively for black-owned businesses.

Yelp has now decided to add a function which alerts consumers of businesses accused of ‘racism.’

It wrote:

At Yelp, we value diversity, inclusion and belonging, both internally and on our platform, which means we have a zero tolerance policy to racism….Communities have always turned to Yelp in reaction to current events at the local level. As the nation reckons with issues of systemic racism, we’ve seen in the last few months that there is a clear need to warn consumers about businesses associated with egregious, racially-charged actions to help people make more informed spending decisions….Now, when a business gains public attention for reports of racist conduct, such as using racist language or symbols, Yelp will place a new Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert on their Yelp page to inform users, along with a link to a news article where they can learn more about the incident.

What if Yelp incorrectly accuses a corporation/business of racism based on a false claim?

Remember what happened to Oberlin College?

The whole issue started when a student from Oberlin College was caught shoplifting two bottles of wine from Gibson’s Bakery while trying to buy another with fake ID. Allyn Gibson, son of the owner chased down the shoplifter but was attacked by his accomplices. The perpetrators claimed racial profiling by the store.

Oberlin College’s Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo, joined in student protests calling Gibsons a “racist establishment.” It was then that Oberlein ended all business with the bakery (which had been an ongoing supplier to the college since 1885). Flyers were printed and the store attacked.

Several faculty staff joined the protestors who tried to shut down Gibsons despite the college president Carmen Twillie Ambar suggesting they were on private time and only representing their First Amendment rights, not representing the school.

After a police investigation turned over nothing to suggest racism on any level, Oberlin resumed its contract with Gibson’s but refused to publicly retract the accusations.

Gibson sued for defamation and won US$25 million. The three perpetrators admitted they’d made it all up and that the shop owner had a right to charge them for their crime. 

We will have no sympathy if Yelp falls into this woke trap and gets sued for falsely accusing innocent businesses.

Capitalism wins again. NBA to take wokeness off court in 2021

As ratings have plummeted since these overpaid social justice warriors took to ramming politics down paying fans’ throats, the NBA has decided it will take its woke messages off the court next season.

In what must have been the most predictable outcome imaginable, money has finally spoken. The question is whether the fans will come back?!

As we often say, people who support particular causes are willing participants right up to the point they are mercilessly shamed for not expressing outwardly in a manner the apparatchiks demand.

How soon until NFL, MLB and NHL follow suit? #GetWokeGoBroke

Former White House tenant blames Current tenant for divisiveness

What a surprise that former FLOTUS Michelle Obama decided to go straight for the race card. She blamed Trump and his goons for fanning the flames during the mostly peaceful BLM protests.

So peaceful that VP candidate Kamala Harris went out of her way to sponsor and endorse the Minnesota Freedom Fund to post bail for these peaceful felons, including those charged with sexually assaulting an 8-yo child.

We’re surprised that the peaceful protests only caused $2bn in damages. That is in insurance losses. Not economic losses to those cities which will be multiples of that due to businesses vacating guaranteeing job losses with it.

Of course these mostly peaceful protests Michelle Obama talks about have garnered so much grass roots community support thanks to activities like:

trashing a young Hispanic kid’s birthday party,

harassing neighborhoods in the middle of the night,

threatening diners,

kicking innocent people in the head,

shooting cops or

attacking innocent mothers with kids in cars.

We could go on. Suffice to say that the community at large was right behind peaceful protest and police reform immediately after the death of George Floyd. They didn’t buy into looting, rioting and surrendering civil liberties. That is the point the BLM/Antifa thugs lost support they had on a platter. They squandered the opportunity.

Amazing how the actions of a few cops under the direction of a six-decade Democrat-controlled city are somehow Trump’s fault. Then again everything is his fault, including the divisive actions of the previous tenants at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Never in the history of the presidency, have the former tenants acted so divisively to encourage the landlords to evict the current resident. Talk about fanning the flames. Maybe she needs a quiet chat with her husband over the actions of his administration to illegally spy on the opposition candidate in 2016

Joe Biden gaffes on monolithic grocery shelf stacker community

Media free pass #217 for Joe Biden.

The reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home was because some black woman was able to stock the grocery shelf.”

Yet another #YouAintBlack, “superpredator“, “poor kids are just as smart as white kids” or “unlike the African-American community with notable exceptions the Latino community is very diverse” from Biden.

And the media call Trump the racist when he has denounced white supremacy countless times by name.

An amazing synopsis:

A friend shared this and if I knew the original writer, I would absolutely give them credit. Warning- it’s long, but pretty darn accurate. Thanks Jon Jon.

We could not have said this any better:

“If you can’t stand Trump, and cannot possibly fathom why anyone would ever vote for him, let me fill you in.

It’s not that we love Donald Trump so much. It’s that we can’t stand YOU!

And we will do whatever it takes — even if that means electing a rude, obnoxious, unpredictable, narcissist (your words not ours) to the office of President of the United States — because the thing we find more dangerous to this nation than Donald Trump is YOU.

How is that possible you might ask? Well, you have done everything in your power to destroy our country. From tearing down the police, to tearing down our history, to tearing down our borders.

From systematically destroying our schools and brainwashing our kids into believing socialism is the answer to anything (despite being an unmitigated failure everywhere), while demonizing religion and faith, and glorifying abortion, violence, and thug culture.

From calling us racists every time we expect everyone of any skin color to follow our laws equally to gaslighting us about 52 genders, polyamory, grown men in dresses sharing public locker rooms with little girls, and normalize the sexualization of young children, you simultaneously ridicule us for having the audacity to wish someone a “Merry Christmas” or hang a flag on the 4th of July, stand for the national anthem, or (horror of horrors) don a MAGA hat in public.

So much for your “tolerance.” Do you see why we think you are hypocrites?

We’re also not interested in the fact that you think you can unilaterally decide that 250 years of the right-to-bear-arms against a tyrannical or ineffective government should be abolished because you can’t get the violence in the cities you manage under control. That free-speech should be tossed out the window, and that those who disagree with your opinions are fair game for public harassment or doxing. That spoiled children with nose-rings and tats who still live off their parent’s dime should be allowed to destroy cities and peoples’ livelihoods without repercussions.

That chaos, and lawlessness, and disrespect for authority should be the norm. This is your agenda. And you wonder why we find you more dangerous than Donald Trump?

Your narrative is a constant drone of oppressor/oppressed race-baiting intended to divide the country in as many ways as you possibly can. You love to sell “victim-hood” to people of color every chance you get because it’s such an easy sell, compared to actually teaching people to stand on their own two feet and take personal responsibility for their own lives and their own communities and their own futures. But you won’t do that, you will never do that, because then you will lose control over people of color. They might actually start thinking for themselves, God forbid!

This is why we will vote for Donald Trump.

Not because he is the most charming character on the block.

Not because he is the most polite politician to have ever graced the oval office.

Not because he is the most palatable choice, or because we love his moral character or because the man never lies, but because we are sick to death of you and all of the destructive crap you are doing to this once beautiful and relatively safe country.

Your ineffective and completely dysfunctional liberal “leadership”(?) has literally destroyed our most beautiful cities, our public education system, and done it’s damndest to rip faith out of people’s lives.

However bad Donald Trump may be, and he is far from perfect, every day we look at you and feel that no matter what Donald Trump says or does there is no possible way he could be any worse for our country than you people are.

We are sick to death of your stupid, destructive, ignorant, and intolerant behavior and beliefs — parading as “wokeness.” We are beyond sick of your hypocrisy and B.S.

We are fed up with your disrespectful divisiveness and constant unrelenting harping and whining and complaining (while you live in the most privileged nation in the world), while making literally zero contributions of anything positive to our society.

Your entire focus is on ripping things down, never ever building anything up. Think about that as there is something fundamentally very wrong in the psychology of people who choose destruction as their primary modus operandi.

When Donald J Trump is reelected, don’t blame us, look in the mirror and blame yourselves. Because you are the ones that are responsible for the rise of Donald Trump. You are the ones who have created this “monster” that you so despise, by your very actions. By your refusal to respect your fellow Americans, and the things that are important to us.

You have made fun of the “fly-over states,” the people who “cling to their guns and religion,” the middle class factory workers and coal miners and underprivileged rural populations that you dismissively call “yahoos” and “deplorables.”

You have mocked our faith and our religion.

You have mocked our values and our patriotism.

You have trampled our flag and insulted our veterans and treated our first responders with contempt and hatred.

You have made environmentalism your religion, while trashing every city you have taken responsibility for.

You scream from the rooftops about “global warming” and a “green new deal” while allowing tens of thousands of homeless people to cover your streets in literal sh!t and garbage and needles and plastic waste without doing a single thing to help them or solve the environmental crisis your failed social policies are creating.

But we’re supposed to put YOU in charge of the environment while gutting our entire economy to institute this plan when you can’t even clean up a single city??

You complain — endlessly — yet have failed to solve a single social problem anywhere. In fact, all you have done is create more of them.

We’ve had enough. We are tired of quietly sitting by and being the “silent” majority. So don’t be surprised when the day comes when we finally respond. And trust me it’s coming, sooner than you might think. And also trust me when I say it won’t be pretty. Get ready.

When Donald Trump is reelected it will be because you and your “comrades” have chosen to trash the police, harass law-abiding citizens, and go on rampages destroying public property that we have all paid for and you have zero respect for.

When Donald Trump is reelected it will be because we are sick of your complete and utter nonsense and destruction. How does it feel to know that half of this country finds you FAR more despicable than Donald J. Trump, the man you consider to be the anti-Christ? Let that sink in.

We consider you to be more despicable, more dangerous, more stupid, and more narcissistic than Donald Trump. Maybe allow yourself a few seconds of self-reflection to let that sink in. This election isn’t about Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden. This is about Donald Trump vs YOU.

So if on the morning of November 4 (or more likely January 19, by the time the Supreme Court will weigh in on the mail-in ballot fiasco that we are headed towards), and Donald J. Trump is reelected?

The only people you have to blame is the left-wing media drones and yourselves. You did this. Yep you.”

Kamala Harris sponsored fund bails out man charged with sexually assaulting 8-yo

As the media were too preoccupied praising Kamala Harris for making ‘Timberland boots cool again” – after they lambasted Melania Trump for wearing them several years ago – journalists overlooked the fact that the Minnesota Freedom Fund she openly endorsed bailed out Timothy Wayne Columbus.

He faces up to 30 years in prison for allegedly sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl in 2015. He was released from a Minneapolis jail in early July on $75,000 bail, according to jail records.

In August, MFF paid $350,000 in cash to release twice-convicted rapist Christopher Boswell from jail. Boswell currently faces charges of kidnapping and sexual assault as well.

The fund bailed out Lionel Timms from jail in late July on a third-degree felony assault charge for allegedly assaulting a person on a bus. Timms was arrested again while out on bail for allegedly assaulting a bar manager, who was left with a traumatic brain injury.

MFF Interim Executive Director Greg Lewin released a statement in response to Timms’ second offence saying his arrest while out on bail was a “failure of the criminal justice system.

Deshaun Jermain Boyd was released from jail on $70,000 bail in July after being charged with 1st-degree aggravated robbery. He stomped on the head of a man with a cane and robbed him.

Do we need to go any further to show up a system where a potential president proudly paints criminals as victims?

Minny City Council panics as crime surges

Who ever would have guessed?? How could the Minneapolis City Council predict that calls to defund the police would lead to a 55%YoY surge in arson? Or murder, carjackings, robberies or assaults???

These woke Democrats thought “reimagining the police” would just work. What happened to the army of social workers who had the skills to reason with an irate 350lb armed narcotics dealer chasing up accounts receivable from his financially constrained customers?

Minny City Council President Lisa Bender, who led the charge in the initial calls to defund the MPD, complained that the law enforcement officers were being defiant by not answering the calls of constituents.

As we pointed out in June, Lisa Bender tweeted,

If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?

So no Lisa, three months later they want more police.

“Policy wonk” council member Phillipe Cunningham said,

What I am sort of flabbergasted by right now is colleagues, who a very short time ago were calling for abolition, are now suggesting we should be putting more resources and funding into MPD.”

Who knew?!

Sheriffs give Oregon Gov Brown two words. One of them was “off”

This is what happens when cops push back on the very politicians who have advocated to hobble them. Basically politicians can’t have it both ways.

So encouraging to see this pushback so soon after the mayor of Nisswa was arrested by his own police department.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (Democrat) has finally decided she needs to do something to combat the lawlessness in Portland after 90 days of unrest. We thought it virtually impossible to be more incompetent than Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and her acceptance of the “summer of love” in CHAZ. Brown has outdone her.

To her surprise, both the Washington County and Clackamas County sheriffs have refused to send deputies to help the Portland PD to quell the violence.

It is not that they don’t want to help their fellow brothers and sisters in law enforcement. They see Brown’s policies as too high risk. The Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police offered more context with,

Unfortunately, due to the lack of support for public safety operations, the associated liability to agencies who would be assisting in Portland and the lack of accountability for those arrested committing criminal acts, we cannot dedicate our limited resources away from the communities we serve.

When local and state Democrat leaders have slammed police officers for months as racists and sought to defund departments while tying the hands of police officers to not to get involved in quelling the riots, forgive them for pushing back when the tables turn.

Gov Brown has been among the most despotic governors during lockdown. She even called child protective services on a hair salon owner for reopening her store to help feed the families of her staff. The owner also risked having her lease terminated.

You reap what you sow.

For what?

For what exactly was this guy’s crime? Clearly, thugs think there are no repercussions for their violence. With the spate of activist DAs is it any wonder?

#Trump2020

Yo Joe, only 80 days late, mate!

Could it be that the Dems realize that Americans are getting fed up with all of the rioting, looting and shooting?

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden came out last night with,

Burning down communities is not protest, it’s needless violence. Violence that endangers lives. Violence that guts businesses and shutters businesses that serve the community. That’s wrong.”

Why didn’t the DNC feature strong condemnation of the violence with its list of speakers? Instead his party promoted a convicted murderer and kidnapper who served 27 years but labeled her one of “America’s most impactful leaders” and a non-binary mermaid queen-king who wants to abolish the police, prisons and ICE?

Jeez Joe, only 80 days late pal! You think Americans have forgotten Speaker Pelosi’s, “People will do what they will do!” gaffe?

Only one party has condemned the rioting from the get go. Only one party has thrown its weight behind the police, so much so that the unions are endorsing Trump en masse.

We’ve said before, this is not a coronavirus election. Anyone can see that rioters don’t play by the harsh lockdown rules and people are fed up about their physical, societal and economic safety not some virus that has a 99.96% recovery rate.
