The ‘Agitator’ Involved in Saturday’s Murder in Denver, Jacob Kelly, Is a Leader in Antifa-BLM Denver

A guy in a Black Guns Matter shirt was out stirring up trouble after the event with the Trump supporters in Denver was over. He started screaming and trying to get others into a fight:
The man’s name is Jacob Kelly. He’s one of the leaders of the Denver area Antifa-Black Lives Matter (BLM) insurgents. This is the guy that was starting all of the fights. As you can see, the Denver Post photographer we mentioned last night, Helen Richardson, is always right next to him capturing the action. He was involved in multiple previous assaults and was arrested several times by the Denver PD.

Portland mayor Ted Wheeler easily is among the worst mayors in the US. Indeed, he's internationally famous for letting Portland burn. With a 63% disapproval rating, his chance of reelection may be quite slim. Still, his kooky antifa challenger Sarah Iannarone makes him look like a solid choice by comparison. Regardless, both seem to agree that white nationalism is the fundamental problem. 🤯

Note that there are occasional conservative demonstrations in Portland. The participants get branded as "white nationalists". Whatever one wants to call them — and calling them white nationalists is a disingenuous tactic — they are not the ones that have been burning down and vandalizing Portland for well over 100 days. Ted Wheeler has done nothing to stop it, and Iannarone is cheering it on.

After Tearing Down Statues of Lincoln & Roosevelt, Leftists Unveil 'Statue' That's A Giant Pile Of Trash

This is the same thing that leftists intend to do with the remnants of our so-called democracy — replace it with a giant pile of trash. The Proud Boys cleaned up the "Nightmare Elk." Fixing the Republic poses a larger challenge.

A reminder that Dr. King didn't want people to be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The Civil Rights Legend Who Opposed Critical Race Theory
Wed, 10/14/2020 - 23:25

By Steve Klinsky of RealClearPolitics, chairman of the American Investment Council, and founder and CEO of New Mountain Capital; he worked with Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker in the education reform movement, and knew him as a co-author and friend,

Critical race theory, or CRT, is in the news these days but many people still may not know what it really means. They think CRT is part of the Rev. Martin Luther King's civil rights efforts. In truth, it is directly opposed to the central concept and vision he most stood for. One of the last and greatest civil rights leaders of our time -- and one of King's closest friends and advisers -- did understand CRT, and explicitly rejected it.

Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker (pictured, at right) was a legend in the American civil rights movement. Executive director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in the critical years of 1960-1964, he was a co-founder of CORE (the Congress of Racial Equality), chief of staff to King, and King's "field general" in the organized resistance against notorious Birmingham safety commissioner "Bull" Connor. Walker compiled and named King's "The Letter From Birmingham Jail." He was with King for the march on Washington that produced the "I have a dream" speech, and in Oslo for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Afterward, Dr. Walker came north to New York City to serve as minister of the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem. He was one of the nation's most respected ministers until his death in 2018. In his book "David and Goliath," Malcolm Gladwell dedicated a chapter to Dr. Walker and his work in Birmingham. The cover of Ebony magazine called Walker "The Man Behind Martin Luther King." In short, no one may have known King's thoughts better or been closer to them than Dr. Walker.

Even as he aged, Dr. Walker never backed down from the passionate pursuit of civil rights for all. Later in his life, he was chairman of the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network and a supporter of reparations for African Americans. I got to know him soon after Amadou Diallo had been horribly gunned down in New York City in 1999. We joined together to form New York's first and longest-surviving charter school, now named the Sisulu-Walker Charter School of Harlem. We stayed friends from that time until he died.

In 2015, Dr. Walker and I co-authored an essay about education reform and race relations, where we wrote:

"Today, too many ‘remedies’ -- such as Critical Race Theory, the increasingly fashionable post-Marxist/postmodernist approach that analyzes society as institutional group power structures rather than on a spiritual or one-to-one human level -- are taking us in the wrong direction: separating even elementary school children into explicit racial groups, and emphasizing differences instead of similarities.

“The answer is to go deeper than race, deeper than wealth, deeper than ethnic identity, deeper than gender. To teach ourselves to comprehend each person, not as a symbol of a group, but as a unique and special individual within a common context of shared humanity. To go to that fundamental place where we are all simply mortal creatures, seeking to create order, beauty, family, and connection to the world that -- on its own -- seems to bend too often towards randomness and entropy."

Before publishing this essay, I questioned Dr. Walker to make sure he really wanted to be on record with this opposition to CRT. I was worried this might put him in a bad way with other civil rights leaders. But he had never backed down in his life, and he reiterated that this was his position.

In hindsight, I believe that Dr. Walker was not so much against anything, as for something. He was for what Dr. King was for, and for what so many well intended people are for who may misunderstand the difference between CRT and traditional (i.e., King-style) civil rights.

Dr. Walker was for a fundamental respect for all people, without regard to their ethnic group or religion or the color of their skin. Dr. Walker's civil rights views tie back to religious values, to humanism, to rationalism, to the Enlightenment. The roots of CRT are planted in entirely different intellectual soil. It begins with "blocs" (with each person assigned to an identity or economic bloc, as in Marxism). Human-to-human interactions are replaced with bloc-to-bloc interactions.

As Dr. Walker tried to make clear, thinking in terms of blocs of people, rather than of people as individuals, leads to a whole set of insidious results. How can two people bind together in friendship if they are members of power blocs that are presumed to be inherently opposed? How can a person prove his innocence if he is branded as inevitably a part of a guilty group? Why should an individual strive to succeed by individual merit if group dynamics are presumed to be overwhelming and inescapable? How can we ever find peace among the races and religions if we won't look to each other, person by person, based on actual facts and actual intentions?

The saddest thing is to see well-intentioned people, trying to achieve Martin Luther King's dream by employing CRT methods that are the opposite of King's dream. King asked for everyone to be judged by the content of their own individual character, not by their inescapable genetic links to post-Marxist style analytical power groups. Supporters of civil rights should follow the example of Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker, and not allow the two incompatible definitions of civil rights -- King's and CRT's -- to be confused with one another.

I've never been a sports enthusiast but since the BLM fiasco, its become an interesting topic. Jason Whitlock gives an insightful description of whats happening in the NBA and how their viewership has plummeted. Patriotism has always been apart of the these national sports leagues and with the BLM, anti American push, they're losing their fans. Money from China is the cause and may be our sports teams new audience, forget Americans. He thinks its good for people to see the influence China is having on our businesses and national spirit. So, does this mean China is pushing the BLM? You don't get the money without it.

Only 5,500,000 million watched the NBA play off this year compared to 18,000,000 last year

The Cabal is behind BLM. I don't think it's in China interest to push the same agenda.

Remember:

(Joe) Are they really suggesting that this whole radical leftist ideology is going to go to an extreme in Western society?

A: Like the Nazis, they will try.

And when the Nazis took over Germany they intented to take over the world. If this ideology wins, China and other nations might be in big trouble.

American Imperialism is already as bad as it is. Woke Imperialism might be way worse. See how Leftist are already aggressively destroying and taking over the West. When they are done with us they might turn to the rest of the World.

Think 3/5/7 years ahead... The World will certainly be a different place. Even unrecognisable. Take a look at how things developed in the last 4 years alone. 2021 and the years after that are going to be mental.

I look at the various predictions of the of every kind of channelings, astrology, visions, and general conventional analysis, that we should be ready for the, let's call it "emergency state" from now to the end of 2013, and 2014 seem to some kind of breakthrough that has to be some kind of the short time of peace before the transition to the 4th Density/"Return of the Christ".

So the nearest time (2021) probably will be the most tensioned in the term of social unrest, wars etc, and the first year of the completely new order of the social system, so now is the good moment to the think about your plans, like career or something, because it will make no sense in the very new future.

Now is the good plan to be, for instance, engage in the forum like this and similar things of real importance. In particular, some of us can't have a connection to the internet because of various reasons or they allow for only government and mainstream media. And because of that, it would be good for everyone on this forum to work a lot at this nearest time, being creative and share a lot, because it can be not possible, even, in the near future. And it will be good for all things, why? Because it can make things pass faster, and make things softer, at least for some, because of the balancing energy of the STO kind. And good if it would be on the forum like that because, it makes things public around the world.

But, coming to the predictions. The arising of the open and total one-world government regime will provoke earth changes, plagues (2021-2023), and when the human (or psychopaths rather) decisions will intensify in more bad things in particular in 2021 (or maybe even in this year November-December, it's possible), the earth changes will be put it out, step by step, cleaning this s***, from the 2021 and with the highest intensification in 2013.

2014 can be the first year after the fall of the total government, which does not mean that it will be calm, but the wars on the Earth and other at least finish, and peace will come. And... 2015 first year of the "new reality", 4th Density? Who knows :-) What then with 3D Earth, I do not have an imagination for it, but Cassiopaeans one time said that Earth would hardly be recognizable regarding how currently looks...

Of course, as always, years and predictions based on precise years aren't too much objective, time is selective etc. but what that what I have written can be close enough. We will see.

It looks like Warner Bros. is putting themselves out of business as well. Vast numbers tuning out just like the sports teams is my guess. They haven't caught on that BLM isn't very popular. This doesn't bode well for Hollywood. Ok, does China have investments in Hollywood? And what about the name Hollywood?

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors lands Warner Bros. TV production deal​

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has signed an overall production deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to create original programming that raises Black voices on streaming services and traditional TV channels.

The multiyear agreement, announced Thursday, represents Cullors’ first overall production deal with a Hollywood studio. Building on her political activism, the Los Angeles native plans to work with the studio to develop scripted dramas and comedies, docuseries and animated programming for children, young adults and families.

“Black voices, especially Black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling,” Cullors said in a statement. “Our perspective and amplification is necessary and vital to helping shape a new narrative for our families and communities.”

Warner Bros. said it would collaborate with Cullors in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to provide more opportunities for Black producers, writers and other talent.
The pact underscores how major Hollywood studios have scrambled this year to be more proactive in seeking diverse voices to work in front of and behind the camera. The George Floyd protests over the summer jolted Hollywood executives, who have said they recognize they must do a better job hiring and promoting people of color.

In July, the CBS Television Studios entered into a multiyear agreement with the NAACP to develop and produce documentaries and scripted and unscripted content. CBS said its goal was to tell “inclusive stories that increase the visibility and impact of Black artists in a growing media landscape.”

Warner Bros. declined to disclose financial terms of its deal with Cullors.

Cullors has advocated for antiracist policies and criminal justice reform for more than two decades. In recent years, she has become an increasingly influential voice for reform. She cofounded Black Lives Matter seven years ago along with Melina Abdullah, also of Los Angeles, following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida.

The verdict prompted Oakland activist Alicia Garza to post on Facebook, “Our lives matter.” Cullors then turned the expression into a hashtag: #BlackLivesMatter, and New York activist Opal Tometi built a digital platform.

Cullors serves as executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network and is founder of the L.A.-based organization Dignity and Power Now. She is the author of the bestselling 2018 book “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir.” In addition, she is faculty director of a graduate-level social and environmental arts program that she began developing last year at Arizona’s Prescott College.

The artist and activist also has experience in television as a former staff writer at Freeform series “Good Trouble,” as well as an actor on the show.

“As a longtime community organizer and social justice activist, I believe that my work
behind the camera will be an extension of the work I’ve been doing for the last twenty years,” Cullors said in Thursday’s statement. “I look forward to amplifying the talent and voices of other Black creatives through my work.”
