Police stay home, Atlanta mayor surprised

Why would the Atlanta police show up for the job in the present circumstances? Why not just let the city burn?

Hours after a fired police officer was charged with felony murder for fatally shooting a man in the back, Atlanta police officers are not responding to calls in three of the department’s six zones, multiple sources within the Atlanta Police Department told CNN on Wednesday evening.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard earlier in the day announced 11 charges against Garrett Rolfe, who was fired after he shot Rayshard Brooks twice in the back on Friday night. A third shot hit a car with three people inside.

The police department said an unusual number of officers working the late shift had called out sick. The mayor said the city would be OK.

“There’s a lot happening in our cities and our police officers are receiving the brunt of it, quite frankly,” Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. She said the city has committed to the officers through a big pay raise, and “we expect that our officers will keep their commitment to our communities.”

She said she thinks morale is down tenfold. “We do have enough officers to cover us through the night,” she said. “Our streets won’t be any less safe because of the number of officers who called out. But it is just my hope again that our officers will remember the commitment that they made when they held up their hand and they were sworn in as police officers.”

The mayor didn’t say how many officers had called out.

Reports on Twitter actually claimed that officers were not responding to calls in all six zones. It must be all the racism and white supremacy in Atlanta government that is to blame. And, of course, those dratted Boogaloos.

Financial support

The good news is that Patreon clearly has plenty of cash to throw around these days.

We’re enraged and saddened by the persistent racism that permeates our society — but our feelings won’t fix the problem. As a company and a community, Patreon has a platform with the power to drive change, and if we fail to leverage that platform, we become part of the problem.

To help in the fight against racism and police brutality, we’re donating $50,000 to Black Lives Matter and other organizations on the front line. We’re also going to increase our financial support to creators of color on Patreon through internal employee programs, and invest to boost diversity among our own ranks, so our team looks more like the community we serve. You can learn more in this blog post from Jack, our CEO.

If they’re financially supporting American Indians, perhaps I should consider opening a Patreon account.

But… but… equality!

If you don’t see color because equality, you won’t see any historical statues much longer either:

Protesters in Portland, Ore., Sunday evening tore down a statue of Thomas Jefferson outside a high school that was named after him, according to a report.

The tear-down came about during a march organized by Rose City Justice to protest police brutality – one of many demonstrations in weeks following the death of George Floyd while in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department.

The group had gathered outside Jefferson High School in Northeast Portland before marching to the park, Fox 12 reported. By the time they returned, a statue of Thomas Jefferson, the third U.S. president, had been pulled from its pedestal by a smaller group.

Earlier in the day, the statue’s pedestal had been defaced with graffiti that labeled Jefferson as a slave owner. Jefferson had more than 600 slaves, despite publicly speaking out on the institution and writing the words “all men are created equal” in the Declaration of Independence.

“There’s an interesting piece of history up here… Mr. Thomas is all beside himself,” the march’s organizer said before the statue was torn down. “We’re taking this city back. One school at a time. One racist statue at a time.”

Please to enjoy your equalitarian, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural utopia sans history while it lasts.

The warlords are coming. And they are smarter than you are, because they know better than to believe in any of the rhetorical nonsense that you do.

Cereal is racist

Coco Pops has been a much-loved breakfast staple for decades with one of the most recognisable mascots in TV advertising. 

But Coco the Monkey has come under suspicion from disgraced former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya, who has written to Kellogg’s asking why they chose that animal to represent the chocolate-flavoured cereal when Rice Krispies uses ‘three white boys’.

Ms Onasanya, who was jailed for three months in January 2019 after she was convicted of lying to police about a speeding ticket, says that there is little difference between Coco Pops and sister brand Rice Krispies beyond their colour and flavour. 

The former Peterborough MP revealed she has emailed Kellogg’s UK office for clarification on why Rice Krispies have ‘three white boys’ as a mascot whereas chocolate-flavoured Coco Pops is represented by a monkey. 

I wonder what these lunatics are going to do when they find out that some morning racists are actually “browning” their toast. Kellogg’s, of course, didn’t hesitate to cuck on command.

Inquiry from a black conservative

Or at least, what used to be considered a black conservative before conservatism died its final death yesterday at the Supreme Court:

I am subscribed to your youtube account and I’ve been on your blog site occasionally. But honestly I became aware of you through other people or movements (Owen, Milo, comicsgate, the aftermath of the 2016 election, etc etc) When I occasionally read your blog posts or watched a darkstream specifically about or involving the aforementioned groups of people, I would be inclined to agree with your position. Now by chance I watched your latest darkstream  “Conservatism is dead” because I also thought that morning when the supreme court ruling came down that conservatism was dead. I would be considered a black consertive by some though I am a registered liberterian because of neocons.

I felt pessimistic about the future and so the title for your video really caught my attention. Now as you can probably tell from the subject of this email, the topic of that video isn’t specifically what I want to talk about. When you go to the point of conservatives lying about race I admit I raised an eyebrow, I could understand an argument regarding lying about culture but race made me wince. To be honest I didn’t get I guess you could say triggered until you started to argue from a Biblical standpoint. I was tempted to think alright this guy is just an ass just unsubscribe, but I wanted to take a step back and understand the entirety of your argument.

In the video you were talking to your audience, people who have been following you for some time so there was no need for a detailed argument. I understand that you were essentially summarizing viewpoints you’ve already expanded upon elsewhere, likely many times.  But I thought to myself there feels like a more nuanced layer of thought to be found here. I tried to look through your blog posts and I found again that you are touching on the subject with the understanding that your audience is familiar with the core content of your argument. Despite some interesting reads I grew tired after about a year of posts. Your video library is quite substantial and I don’t believe any of your books specifically target this position. So if you don’t mind me asking in a very entitled way, could you point me to where you discuss in detail your vibrancy position.

If possible I’d especially like to to see how you conclude

1) The biblical language of a nation/tribe is specific to race, (From my understanding you in ancient worlds you belonged to any tribe your father was from) and how you come to apply that perspective to the modern state of living.

2) That race or genetics will always overcome culture.

3) Judging someone by the content of their character is a lie. What bothered me about this argument is how I am supposed to intellectually accept your argument under the condition that I don’t judge you by you, but by your race, which I should theoretically believe I can’t harmonize with in the same country.

4) You can intellectually avoid an angle of pure racial superiority under that position

Finally I do not know if you have a solution to the vibrancy problem but if you do I’d like to see it. I find that even if I were to be convinced of your position and (honestly I suppose I’d have to take it in a Malcom X separatism type of way) I have no inclination to leave the United States and there is no logical reason to believe Africans would welcome a mass of African Americans as a native son as any persons of slavic descent would be welcomed in Eastern Europe after generations of separation from the “motherland”.

I don’t know that I’ve ever addressed the matter in comprehensive detail, given that it is of little interest to me due to its complete obviousness, but I can certainly answer the specific questions:

  1. The Biblical language incorporates race because it is specific to nations and tribes, and both nations and tribes are subsets of race. Logic dictates, by the transitive law, that any language that applies to the distinctions of tribes or nations must also apply to the broader sets of races. Furthermore, in a sense of the word that is much older than the “racist” context, race literally means nation. Examples: the German race, the Japanese race, the American race.
  2. Genetics will always overcome culture over time because genetics cannot be educated or easily altered and remain virtually identical from generation to generation. This is why the so-called “destruction of the Black family” so beloved of conservatives is actually an observable disproof of the false conservative perspective on race since the cause of this “destruction” is not the Great Society or the welfare state, it is simply a people returning to their preferred cultural model now that they are no longer being forced, by the constant threat of racial violence, to live according to the oppressive culture norms of their enslavers. Africa wins again.
  3. You can’t judge me at all. You don’t have the right or the necessary information. And vice-versa: I can’t judge you. But what we both can and will inevitably do is make decisions based on the probabilities that are derived from personal experience and relevant statistical knowledge we possess. That’s all that anyone can ever do. Don’t confuse rhetoric for reality.
  4. First, there is no objective “pure racial superiority” in the general sense. Second, there is average racial superiority in every single honest comparison of two or more races. There is no contradiction there, it simply means that the average superiority of one race versus another completely depends upon the metric selected, be it subjective or objective. What likely triggers you is the fact that the metrics you appear to have chosen tend to indicate your perception of the inferiority of your own race. But why permit yourself to be triggered in this way? I am not bothered by the fact that the average IQ of the American Indian is estimated to be around 87 because I am not average. Neither it appears, are you.

There is only one solution to what you describe as the vibrancy problem, and it is the Biblical one as well as the one that has been forced upon many of my people: to each nation and tribe their own land, their own laws, and their own culture. Anything else means war, sooner or later, as each group seeks to impose their own cultural preferences on the other. Remove Proximity from the war equation and there will be peace between the various races, nations, and tribes.

But since we live in a fallen world there will always be those who seek to impose themselves and their ways on others, which means there will always be war. And because we live in a time when Proximity is virtually ubiquitous, we live in a time of war.

The inevitable divide

How can anyone possibly expect there to be any sort of sustainable, civilized society with regular occurrences such as these?

Atlanta police chief Erika Shields has stepped down after newly released surveillance footage showing the details of the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks failed to quell public outrage over ‘unjustified’ use of lethal force.

“I do not believe this was a justified use of deadly force and have called for the immediate termination of the officer,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said at a Saturday afternoon press conference, accepting Shields’ resignation.

Meanwhile, newly-release surveillance footage of the incident appears to back claims by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation that Brooks grabbed a taser from an officer and aimed it back at police chasing him, at which point he was shot.

The Atlanta officer who fatally shot black man Rayshard Brooks has been terminated, while his partner has been placed on administrative duty, the city’s police revealed to media.

A CNN camera crew was assaulted and prevented from filming outside a Wendy’s in Atlanta – the scene of the fatal police shooting of Rayshard Brooks. The building was torched by protesters amid a new wave of unrest in the city.

The restaurant employees called the police because they didn’t dare confront a single black man themselves.

Instead of complying with the responding officers, the African violently resisted, stole one officer’s weapon, tried to run, and was shot when he aimed the taser at the officer.

Now the African is dead, the officer is out of work, and the restaurant has been burned to the ground. Everyone would have been much better off if the various parties hadn’t been permitted to interact in the first place?

Unity is not the answer. Unity is the problem.

The cops are quitting

A 27-year veteran police commander explains why he is abandoning the profession:

Doctors kill 250,000 people a year. They call them “medical mistakes” because society understands that they do a very difficult job under high stress and they must make the best possible decision in the moment.

Law enforcement is tasked with the same and we are highly successful. Despite the most violent society we have ever seen, less than 1,000 suspects are killed a year. 96{574700e7d57f0a5242f51645fa25e9fe0fd372296e9a798489edc6652e3f512a} are attacking us with weapons and all but a few others are attacking us with their cars or their fists and more and more with simulated guns so Benjamin Crump (an American civil rights attorney) can help their family win the lottery.

I’ve seen cops risk their own lives when they shouldn’t have… just to keep from taking one.

They never get the credit that other professions get.

Cowards are all around us. From chiefs to sheriffs to politicians, no one has our back.

Now, the little we have, we are told they are going to defund us or even abolish us. Citizens with a political agenda will reign over us and all you have to do is wake up and put on a uniform to be a racist.

This weekend I received death threats for just doing my job. It would have been outrageous a decade ago and made national news.

Now, it’s just a Monday.

There will be more threats, more accusations of racism and more lies told about us.

I used to talk cops out of leaving the job. Now I’m encouraging them.

It’s over America. You finally did it.

You aren’t going to have to abolish the police, we won’t be around for it.

On the one hand, it’s impossible to blame the man. Everything that he says is true. On the other hand, he leaves out a lot of the changes that have taken place over the course of the last 40 years. It must be admitted that many U.S. police forces helped bring the present situation about, as since the 1980s they were methodically corrupted. The combination of police unions, qualified immunity, militarization, asset seizures, affirmative action, and an unwillingness to convict genuinely bad cops resulted in a transformation from public servants keeping the peace to Law Enforcement Officers.

The police chose the wrong side and served the elite against the people. Now they stand in the way of the elite’s plans for what passes for society, so they are being cast aside and cannot reasonably expect any substantive support from the white Americans whose interests they have systematically betrayed for at least the last four decades.

All in all, it strikes me as an excellent time to launch a private security corporation.

Seriously, don’t apologize

Unauthorized author James Delingpole gets it:

If Black Lives Matter are the good guys, how come they are so censorious, aggressive, bullying, closed-minded and intolerant of free speech?

Toby Young’s Free Speech Union is highlighting the terrifying case studies of journalists and academics in the U.S. and the UK who have been recently been cancelled merely for showing scepticism or insufficient crusading zeal on the issue of Black Lives Matter…. None of these men said or did anything that could reasonably construed as ‘racist.’ Indeed, in several cases, they paid obeisance to the Black Lives Matter movement by offering up grovelling pieties on the awfulness of racism. But it made no difference for the simple reason that it never does. They don’t want your contrition: they want your destruction.

As Vox Day puts it in his SJW Attack Survival Guide, the third rule is ‘Do Not Apologise’.

Normal people seek apologies because they want to know that you feel bad about what you have done and that you will at least attempt to avoid doing it again in the future. When SJWs push you for an apology after pointing-and-shrieking at you, what they are seeking is a confession to bolster their indictment. They are like the police down at the station with a suspect in the interrogation room, badgering him to confess to the crime. And like all too many police these days, the SJWs don’t really care if you did it or not, they’re just looking for a confession that they can take to the prosecutor.

The other lesson for us all is that unless you work for an avowedly, aggressively and unapologetically conservative employer — ideally yourself — your freedom of speech is effectively at an end because your employer will cave at the merest hint of a complaint from the radical left.

The answer, of course, is that Black Lives Matter are not the good guys. They are, in fact, the tools of the very, very bad guys.

Chicago is in the best of hands

How dare the racist media question the fine way Chicago’s democratically elected leaders are governing the City with Broad Shoulders?

As unrest swept the city Sunday, aldermen pleaded with Mayor Lori Lightfoot to help them protect their communities from roving bands of criminals clashing with police and looting businesses.

WTTW News obtained a recording of an online conference call held by the mayor’s office to brief all 50 aldermen on the city’s response to the unrest touched off by the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.

While one alderman wept, others grew angry with the mayor, demanding to know what her strategy was to stop the violence that began in earnest late Saturday.

Mayor Lightfoot is a brave and stunning woman of color, and there is absolutely no reason besides racism to believe she cannot run the city as well as any white man, in fact, she can run it better because she understands the 400-year plight of the 887,608 Black Americans in her city.

She certainly can’t do any worse than the Jewish guy who was parachuted into Minneapolis to become the next Senator from Minnesota. At least Chicago hasn’t actually burned down yet.

A police-free Minneapolis

This should prove to be more than a little amusing:

Minneapolis City Council members have announced their intention to make radical changes in the city’s police department in the wake of violent protests that were sparked by the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who died in police custody.

Nine of the council’s 12 members appeared at a rally in a city park Sunday afternoon and vowed to end policing as the city currently knows it.

The council members ended up standing before hundreds of people on a grassy hill and pledged to begin the process of taking apart the Police Department in its current form.
Council Member Jeremiah Ellison promised that the council would ‘dismantle’ the department.
At another protest on Saturday, Rep. Ilhan Omar declared ‘it’s time to disband the Minneapolis Police Department. I will never cosign on funding a police department that continues to brutalize us and I will never stop saying, not only do we need dis-invest police but we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,’ she said.

Of course, they may not have any police willing to work there much longer anyhow. One friend was speaking to a longtime officer today and it appears that a significant percentage of the MPD is now eligible for retirement and is increasingly inclined to take it.

He mentioned he had been on the force for nearly 30 years and had concerns about others that are “retirement-eligible” resigning – some have already in light of the recent events and almost 20{105b5945f2a7891a3dd860d3a09046b26c32f8a07d097b566642738deee8841e} of the force is currently eligible. 

At some point, it is going to occur to the general population that the ever-present problem is not the police.
