Hooray, Boston! Antiracists outnumber racists

NPR.org (updated at 4:53 pm ET); Wisdom Quarterly
Counterprotesters assemble at Statehouse before planned "free speech" rally by conservative organizers begins on adjacent Boston Common, on Saturday (Michael Dwyer/AP).


 
C'mon, Boston, make Hitler and me proud.
A small number of right-wing "Free Speech Rally" [estimated 100] demonstrators disbanded early from Boston Common after they were confronted by thousands [estimated 10,000 to 20,000] of counter-protesters shouting anti-Nazi and anti-KKK slogans.
Hitler dead (or whisked to Argentina)
Deborah Becker, a reporter with member station WBUR in Boston, said that "a few dozen" rally attendees were escorted from Parkman Bandstand by police and placed into police vehicles "for their own safety."
 
"The counter-demonstrators cheered as the group was escorted out of the area in police wagons," reports WGBH's Phillip Martin.
 
"I didn't realize how unplanned of an event it was going to be," Samson Racioppi, a Libertarian candidate for Congress who was expected to speak at the rally, was quoted by WCVB-TV as saying. "I really think it was supposed to be a good event by the organizers, but it kinda fell apart."
The conservative activists had insisted they have no connection to last week's violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, which drew white nationalists and sparked violent clashes and a deadly vehicle attack.

But that did not satisfy those who opposed their message. Many of them handed out stickers showing the face of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville when a man who attended the white nationalist rally allegedly rammed his car into a crowd of counter-demonstrators.
 
Earlier, a speaker who addressed the crowd condemned what many see as President Trump's tepid response to events last week in Charlottesville.
"If you don't condemn it, you condone it," the speaker said. Demonstrators also chanted "black lives matter" and "our streets."
 
On Saturday afternoon, Trump tweeted his response to the rally, commending law enforcement officers on a job well done and protesters on speaking out against bigotry.
Some at the rally carried signs — among them: "Alt-Right Delete" and "The only thing we hate in Boston is the Yankees."
Martin says: "Boston police waded into the crowd at times before the march began to confiscate sticks and poles that were used to hold placards, one which read: 'Death to Nazis, impeach Trump, this land is our land too.'"
 
Chris Hood, an 18-year-old Boston resident who planned to join the Free Speech rally, was quoted by The Associated Press as saying: "The point of this is to have political speech from across the spectrum, conservative, libertarian, centrist."
"This is not about Nazis. If there were Nazis here, I'd be protesting against them," Hood said.
 
Some 500 officers, both uniformed and undercover, were to be deployed to maintain order, according to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, a Democrat, both had warned that extremist unrest in the city would not be tolerated.
 
Speaking with member station WBUR in Boston, an organizer of the self-described free speech rally insisted that the message from the demonstrators "is one that [is] anti-hate and pro-peace."
 
"I think we've taken pretty much every precaution, not only with [Boston police], but with the other organizers, to make sure our message is clear," John Medler, of the Boston Free Speech Coalition, said ahead of Saturday's rally.
 
WBUR reported Friday that a "free speech" rally in Boston in May drew not only more mainstream conservative activists, but also some of the same groups that caused violence in Charlottesville:
"On May 13, a group of veterans, ex-police, Tea Party Republicans, and young people affiliated with the self-described 'alt-right' — a conservative faction that mixes racism, white nationalism, anti-Semitism, and populism — gathered around the Common's historic Parkman Bandstand.
"Organizers claimed that they were honoring their First Amendment right to assemble and express radical viewpoints. But the event felt more like a small, right-wing rally than a celebration of the Constitution."
For Saturday's rally, police banned signs on sticks and backpacks, although many were seen among the counter-protesters. The Boston Globe writes:
"Boston officials said Friday that they will shut down the Saturday event if there are signs of violence.
"'The courts have made it abundantly clear that they have the right to gather, no matter how repugnant their views are,' said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. 'They don't have the right to create unsafe conditions. ...They must respect our city.'"
"He urged the public not to confront members of hate groups who show up Saturday and advised residents and tourists to avoid the Common during the rally." More

Violent tiki Nazi cries as cops close in (video)

Pat Macpherson, Pfc. Sandoval (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly; AMJ; Breakfast Club; SNL, Parade.com
Future racist recruit(?) draws heart on sidewalk in Charlottesville after Nazis visit.


I reject this crybaby. (Mr. Hitler Campbell)
I’m terrified: Neo-Nazi Christopher Cantwell (Radical Agenda Radio) blubbers like a baby in a video reporting that he’s wanted by police in Charlottesville, Virginia.

This NeoNazi  -- who was one of the “Unite the Right” Charlottesville marchers interviewed by VICE -- released a weepy, rambling video of himself discussing the fact that a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

 
America, resist! No to Trump fascism!
“I called the Charlottesville Police Department,” Cantwell cries, “and said, ‘I have been told there’s a warrant out for my arrest. They said they wouldn’t confirm it but that I could find this out if I wanted to go to a local magistrate or something like that.”

“With everything that’s happening, I don’t think it’s very wise for me to go anywhere,” he continued. “There’s a state of emergency; the National Guard is here!”


Violent Nazi white supremacist cries after realizing he'll be arrested. Starts at Min. 1:20.

The Breakfast Club tells it like it is.
One problem we have in Los Angeles is that the local good station, Pacifica (KPFK 90.7 FM), has a big embarrassing blowhard, Gary Squiggly, inflating himself five days a week. He's tedious and now we find he lacks originality. On Friday (8/18/17) he did a very funny compare/contrast of violent US Nazi Christopher Cantwell bragging about his readiness and constant preparation for violence and his cowering, apologetic, I'll-say-anything-to-stay-out-of-trouble attitude when he hears the police have a warrant out for his arrest for his violent participation and hate crimes in Charllottesville. It was a rare good show for Squiggly, who recently returned to the station to act like a Big Man ("What's crackalacking, my peoples, my peoples?"). It turns out he probably stole the idea and copied lots of other sources, like the previous day's episode of the Breakfast Club (video above). What an [black] and a hack, our own embarrassing black Rush Limbaugh.

Our furher is not a racist. He can't be!
Christian Picciolini [peach-uh-leen-ee] is a former skinhead -- made famous recently by appearing on NPR denouncing US racism, Nazism, fascism, and Trump -- who was a leader of a neo-Nazi white supremacist group. In this stunning interview, he shares:
  • How he broke free to become a former white supremacist
  • Pres. Trump's racist comments on violence in Charlottesville
  • Don't call me Peckerwood! I'm alt-right
  • Why white supremacist violence is the leading threat to the average American
  • How white evangelical churches are silent after defending white supremacy and racism for years.

Secrets of the Pineal Gland (video)

Collective Awakening; Graham Hancock; Dhr. Seven, CC Liu (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly


Collective AwakeningAncient traditions knew of the pineal gland (shaped like a pine cone behind the forehead acting as a third eye). It's shrouded in mystery and the subject of lore in many cultures. These cultures knew that the pineal plays a role in our spiritual development and communication with spirit beings. But in an increasingly toxic world, many of us are losing the innate gifts of an open and active pineal.

Racist white cop beats black driver (video)

RT; Associated Press (ap.org); Pfc. Sandoval, Pat Macpherson (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

Taken from video provided by Euclid Police Dept., racist cop Michael Amiott punches citizen m Richard Hubbard in Ohio. Dashcam video of stop shows white cop with a history of disciplinary issues repeatedly punching a black man and hitting his head on pavement. This reveals lies on official report by police (Euclid Police Dept. via AP).

.
Fair Americans oppose racist Americans.
The initial statement [official lies] from police in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid said black driver Richard Hubbard III, who was pulled over on "suspicion" of having a suspended driver's license, had refused Officer Michael Amiott's orders to "face away" after getting out of his car Aug. 12 and then began resisting.

But the video obtained this week in a public records request appears to show Amiott not giving Hubbard a chance to comply, Hubbard's attorney said Friday.
 
"Your own two eyes and common sense can lead to only one reasonable conclusion as to the propriety of the level of force used for a basic traffic stop and whether or not my client had a chance to comply," attorney Christopher McNeal said.
.

The dashcam video shows Amiott opening the car door and Hubbard getting out. Within a second of Amiott ordering him to "face away," the video shows the officer grabbing Hubbard's arms and wrestling him to the ground in the middle of a street as Hubbard's girlfriend jumps out of the car and rushes over.
 
The video shows Amiott bashing Hubbard's head against the pavement several times and then punching him in the head more than a dozen times as Hubbard tries to defend himself.

"Babe, stop!" Hubbard's girlfriend implores, kneeling on the road and screaming as Officer Amiott illegally punches him repeatedly. More



Racist police commit unprosecuted felonies?
This is what I meant when I said don't be nice.
Dashcam video of a white officer with a history of disciplinary issues assaulting and repeatedly punching a black man shows a different sequence of events than how Ohio police had initially written in an official police report about the incident. Euclid police initially said 25-year-old Richard Hubbard III refused orders and resisted arrest after an Aug. 12, 2017 traffic stop. But the video shows Officer Michael Amiott immediately wrestling Hubbard to the ground after Hubbard gets out of the car and is told to face away. Officer Amiott has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation [but as a white officer beating a black man is likely to receive only high fives and back slaps of approval in the police station locker room].

Meditation and Veganism: Connection?

Russell Simmons (vegkitchen.com); Crystal Quintero, Amber Larson (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly
Vegan desserts are easy to make and taste better than the old junk food versions (WQ).

Making the Connection
Meditation Made Simple
I used to get down with the best of them. I’ve often said that back in the day I’d eat [animal corpse] ribs, flanks, chitlins, buffalo wings, pig’s feet...probably even an elephant’s ass [saucy rectum] if you had put it on a plate in front of me.

I never spent a moment considering what sort of damage that food was wreaking on me because I had grown up listening to the world instead of my body.
Vegan foods are healthy and taste great!
And the world told me that greasy, fatty meats should make me happy and content. So that’s what I believed, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Until I woke up.
 
I use the term “wake up” because I believe that eating meat actually represents unconscious behavior. We all know in our hearts that eating meat is wrong -- bad for what it does to our bodies and terrible for the suffering it creates for the animals that are killed on our behalf.

Vegan for Everything (veganstreet.com)
When the Bible spoke of giving man [humans] “dominion” over the animals, the intention wasn’t to cosign an industrial farming industry that slaughters more than ten billion land animals in the United States each year alone.

[That] farming industry is one of the biggest contributors to global warming. I suspect the damage eating meat is causing is why Albert Einstein once said, “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

Man meditatingYet, often until we learn how to be still through a tool like meditation, we can’t hear that truth in our hearts because we’re so distracted by the noise of those who would have us believe eating meat is okay.

I can say without reservation that I would have never become a vegan if I hadn’t started meditating first.

Without meditation, I would have continued to be a sheep, a follower who kept engaging in harmful acts because everyone else was doing it, too.
 
Meditation gave me both the clarity to see that I didn’t like harming animals and then the confidence... More

When the US gov't confiscated all the gold

Pat Macpherson, Seth Auberon (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly


Executive Order 6102 was a United States presidential executive order signed on April 5, 1933 that took everyone's gold away by force.

Did FDR really confiscate Americans' gold in 1933? Did Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt confiscate gold from U.S. citizens in 1933? Is that gold held in Fort Knox, a currently empty gold vault?

Far Right (Nazi, White Racist) Rallies Planned

"March on Google" aimed at Venice Beach, 8 other locations amid planned far right rallies 
We're  keeping our white privilege.
Major cities across the country are bracing for a wave of far right rallies in the coming days. The largest scheduled rally is the “March on Google,” which will take place in nine major US cities Saturday.

The aim is to protest the firing of Google employee James Damore over a controversial memo he wrote about the company’s diversity policies. Damore has said he doesn’t support the “alt-right,” and will “likely not” participate.
 
The website for the “March on Google” said the event “condemns and disavows violence, hatred, and bigotry and all groups that espouse it such as White Nationalists, KKK, Antifa, and NeoNazis.”

Pres. Trump's Nuremberg-style rallies may have inspired American Nazis (AP).
 
“Is this an “Alt-Right” event? The answer is no. This is an event for First Amendment supporters from across the country, from all backgrounds, ethnicity, and walks of life. We will not tolerate any incendiary actions, messages, remarks, or gestures that go against the respectful, ‘open basket’ spirit of the event,” the site states.
 
The “March on Google” rallies are scheduled to take place at these Google locations around the country:
  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Venice Beach
  • Mountain View
  • New York
  • Pittsburgh
  • Seattle
  • Washington, D.C.
The Los Angeles-area event was set to take place near Google’s Venice Beach offices at 340 Main St. The event’s website says the protesters will meet at 350 Main St. and are expected to demonstrate from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. 

It was unclear how many people were expected to attend. Some alt-right organizations are scheduled to lead more localized demonstrations. More
  • Boston is preparing for a rally from alt-right group Boston Free Speech on Saturday. The city mayor has said the city won’t tolerate racism, bigotry, and violence.
  • San Francisco is preparing for two rallies August 26 and August 27. Mayor Edwin Lee said the city can’t condone a rally that incites hate. “I ask that when they chant of hate, San Francisco chants of love. When they talk of despair, San Francisco talks about hope.”
