So, Trump Has The Feds Beating Up White Folks Now??!!

 

 

 

White folks in Portland Oregon are exclaiming, “This is not a dictatorship!” But apparently, Trump is paying them no mind because Trump has stated that he is going to send federal troops to states Trump says are “out-of-control thanks to Democratic leadership.”

‘This is not a dictatorship!’: Portland pushes back harder against Trump, federal agents

“My sense is they chose Portland because if they had rolled this out in, say, Minneapolis, it would mean to come in direct confrontation with many more Black activists,” said Joe Lowndes, a professor of political science at the University of Oregon. “With Portland, it’s a whiter city and they can demonize Antifa or the idea of anarchist looters and kind of take race out of it in a direct way, and make it seem more sympathetic.’’

If anything, activists said, the president’s show of force seemed to give protesters an injection of energy and enthusiasm, with many returning after weeks of shrinking protests.

“People are legit afraid for their rights,” Gow, a nurse, told USA TODAY. “They are coming for our rights. They are exercising martial law.”

According to what I have read, Portland, Oregon only has about 40,000 Black folks living there and so 40,000 Black folks are not out on the streets of Portland, daily getting beaten up, pelted with non-lethal bullets and other projectiles and getting gassed and arrested. And do you remember awhile back I put up a blog titled,

Hold Up! Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?

A new report by American Transparency, a nonpartisan watchdog that compiles data on public expenditures, indicates the militarization of ordinary American life goes well beyond law enforcement and regular citizens.

67 federal agencies during the fiscal years 2006 to 2014 amassed stockpiles of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment to the tune of $1.48 billion.

The Department of Veterans Affairs, which spent $11.7 million on military equipment.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Small Business Administration (SBA), Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many other agencies purchased guns, ammo, and military-style equipment.”

Overall, American Transparency estimates there are more than 200,000 non-military federal officers and security personnel not attached to the Pentagon, which is a force larger than the Marine Corps, with its 180,000 personnel.

“The recent growth of the federal arsenal begs the questions: Just who are the feds planning to battle?” the author of the report, Adam Andrzejewski, wrote for Forbes.

Yeah, it begs the question, “Just who are the feds planning to battle?” And as you can see “Hold Up! Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?” was originally published in 2016 and not even 5 years later, the feds are on the streets of Portland, Oregon in unmarked vehicles while dressed in camouflage, pulling people off the streets and throwing them into unmarked vans and hauling them off.

One would think this was Nazi Germany, but then, Amerikkka did give the Nazis free rides over to this shithole and for what purpose? I’ll let you decide. Meanwhile, there is a hue and cry from multiple mayors demanding that Trump cease and desist with his threats of sending federal troops to their cities.

US mayors demand stop to federal policing with ‘no oversight’ in Portland

Fifteen mayors of major US cities have sent a letter to US federal law enforcement officials demanding a stop to the sending of federal forces to cities and the removal of federal officers from Portland, Oregon.

Also, there have been multiple lawsuits filed in essence stating that what Trump is doing is illegal. Even a retired US Army Lieutenant weighed in and stated that “What kind of bullshit is this?” Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré questioned the deployment of unmarked and armed federal troops at protests in Portland, Oregon by the Trump administration. “They were wearing military uniforms. That uniform represents the cloth of our nation — for people who don’t draw overtime, who serve around the world at the direction of the national command authority — and it’s not to be used as an instrument of protest suppression.”

Not to mention that there has been outrage expressed over the severe beat down that a Navy veteran was subjected to at the hands of those federal troops of Trump’s. Navy veteran, 53-year old Christopher David decided to join the protests and while he was speaking with federal agents, he was beaten and sprayed with pepper gas. Christopher David had this to say of the incident, ” “What they were doing was unconstitutional,” said David, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a Navy veteran. ”Sometimes I worry that people take the oath of office or the oath to the Constitution, and it’s just a set of words that mean nothing. They really don’t feel in their heart the weight of those words.”

Well, Christopher David, to that I say, the ‘man’ who sent those federal troops in to beat and gas you was a draft dodger and Amerikkkans went to the polls and voted for that draft dodger, who has in turn sent federal troops to beat and gas white folks who have, in his opinion, gotten out-of-line and need to be reined in. Why should anyone in Amerikkka be surprised at this? When white Amerikkkans decided to vote for a lying, egotistical, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist, bigoted, draft-dodging asshole for president, what did they expect would happen? Exactly what is happening. But for some strange reason, whites thought that they would be immune to getting gassed and beaten and arrested by federal troops. Well, I guess Trump sure showed you. And on top of that, many of the protesters in Portland, Oregon went home and told their mommies that those big ole, mean ole federal troops were gassing and beating them.

 

 

The white mommies showed up at the protest with their yellow shirts on the very next day only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets.

I seriously hope the world is watching this shitshow. Nancy Pelosi has been wailing and moaning over how the Hong Kong protesters have been treated by the authorities over there and yet, the streets of this shithole, that lauds itself as democratic and with freedom of speech and assembly and some more shit, is looking like a warzone.

US double standards on domestic riots and Hong Kong turmoil mocked on Chinese internet

“Beautiful landscape” and “America Spring” became hot words used online in China to mock the double standards and hypocrisy of the Trump administration and some US Congress members, as well as US media outlets, for being critical and tough toward their domestic massive nationwide demonstrations but encouraging violent activities in Hong Kong.

Chinese experts noted that if US politicians understood that if they encourage violence in another country, their words might backfire on them one day, they would probably “think twice” before commenting again on the Hong Kong turmoil in the future.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in June 2019 called the Hong Kong citywide protests “a beautiful sight to behold” but her words were deployed back against her sarcastically online over the weekend by Chinese net users commenting on nationwide riots across the US.

At a press conference on October 24, 2019, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Hua Chunying said that “I would like to say this to Ms Pelosi: Please keep the ‘beautiful sight’ to yourselves because we want nothing of it.”

Some Chinese internet users called Hua a “prophet” on the Chinese internet’s social media networks.

“We didn’t expect that US politicians can enjoy this kind of ‘beautiful sight’ at home so soon,” was one typical comment.

Apparently, Amerikkkan lawmakers can interfere in what is going down in another area of the globe insofar as protests are concerned, but when those protests take place on Amerikkkan soil by Amerikkkans, then “put that insurrection down right now, goddamn it!” seems to be the call from all and sundry. So, what the Chinese is saying is “Look to your own collapsing house of cards before telling us what to do about ours.”

Nancy Pelosi can just shut the fuck up and Joe Biden as well because both would be doing the same thing if the Democrats were at the helm of this stinking, sinking Titanic. Whites are out on the streets because they’ve got no jobs either since COVID-19 has come along and put paid to that shit. It is not just American descendants of slavery who are hurting in this fucked up economy. And while the Democrats and Republicans fight over what’s to be included in another “too little too late” stimulus package, COVID-19 has ramped up, unlike what was originally thought in that during the summer months, COVID-19 would be a no-show. Well, COVID-19 sure showed up and in spades if the lamestream media is to be believed. So much for waiting until cold weather sets in for a resurgence in COVID-19 cases. Who the hell is going to be left to vote because between Trump’s federal troops busting heads and COVID-19, there is already talk of not enough poll volunteers for the upcoming November election. So it would do those shits in congress good to focus on the shit that’s going down in this shithole instead of worrying about what some protesters are being subjected to in Hong Kong since the protesters here in this shithole are getting the same treatment that Nancy Pelosi bemoaned over in Hong Kong. “Mind Amerikkka’s business, Pelosi since Amerikkka is eyeball deep in shit and that cannot be denied!”

 

“World, are you watching this shit?!” I sure hope so! This shit over here is a prime example of “the pot calling the kettle, black.” Hypocrisy has always reigned supreme in this racist shithole and it always will regardless of what party is at the helm of this lopsided, sinking Titanic. Donald Trump’s claim is that he is merely protecting federal buildings when he sends in federal troops. Does that shithead not understand that those federal buildings were built using the tax dollars of the very Amerikkkans who are protesting on the doorstep of those ‘federal’ buildings? His presidential salary is being paid for by our tax dollars. Every single member of the House and Senate is being paid by our tax dollars. We have every right to do what we please with those buildings because we damn well paid for them. Federal buildings, my ass. Those are the peoples buildings. What Trump is doing is illegal, but when has that ever stopped him? And since no one has the balls to haul his lunatic ass off to an asylum, he is going to continue to make sure that more lives are lost thanks to his stupidity in his response to COVID-19 and in sending in federal troops from every agency from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other agencies listed under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. So, Portland’s residents are now listed as either terrorists or they need to be deported; which one is it? I could not make this shit up if I tried.

Violent or Peaceful Protest? — Levine Lowdown

Violent protest or peaceful protest? This question has been challenged for centuries, and still, people argue and disagree over the most effective way to protest. The recent black lives matter protests around the world following the death of George Floyd highlighted the tension between two sides of protestors. As one side destroyed all objects in […]

via Violent or Peaceful Protest? — Levine Lowdown

First of all, I did what I said I’d never do; I got into it with another blogger on their blog. But in this instance, I must have been too weak to help myself because I have had it with foreigners who sit somewhere in another country and have the nerve to pretend as though they know of our experience here in Amerikkka.

The author of this particular blog lives in Australia. And I should have known right off the bat, that any white Australian speaking on protests going on in the U.S. would take exception because in all reality, the Aborigines should be protesting to get those Botany Bay Penal Colony convict rejects from out of their country.

The whites are always going to go on and on about how peaceful protesting is the means to an end; yeah, our end. Just ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., how well that peaceful protesting worked out for him. He was felled by an assassin’s bullet thanks to Dr. King peacefully protesting which seemed to have lit a spark in the whites who had him murdered for going about things all peaceful like.

Here is my first comment on the article in question:

During the Civil Rights Movement, peaceful protesters were met with violence from ‘the state’, meaning the federal government and on the local level. You don’t remember seeing pictures of hoses and dogs being sicced on peaceful Black protesters? Those people were then jailed for their peaceful protesting. So, why is it okay for the federal government to act violently towards peaceful protesters, but yet, you seem to take umbrage with protesters who turn violent since ‘peaceful’ protesting doesn’t work either? So why don’t you ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., how well peaceful protesting worked out for him. It was ‘peaceful protesting’ that got him an assassin’s bullet.

We have tried it both ways and neither works. The fact of the matter is that American descendants of slavery are damned if we do and damned if we don’t.

I lived in Minneapolis, MN for over a decade and I can tell you that what burned down was NOT owned by American descendants of slavery. Where the majority of the riots occurred is an area known to have a high concentration of immigrants from Mexico, Asia and Africa. One or two stores may have been owned by American descendants of slavery and I know this for a fact because I was in Minneapolis just as recently as this past November. And so I get so sick and tired of people going on and on about how Black people are burning down their own neighborhoods. We don’t own any neighborhoods. We don’t own multiple stores; grocery stores, banks, department stores, etc., and I am sure that you know this.

Until whites want to tear down the system of white supremacy from which they benefit, nothing that Black people do, be it peacefully or non-peacefully is going to make a bit of difference. And I do believe you know this already.

To which the blog’s author responded with:

Yes, MLK was assassinated. But, it was his peaceful protesting that resulting in 4 legislative changes and the introduction of the civil rights act in 1968. Malcom X was not responsible for any legislative change.

I’m not saying that the businesses that were destroyed were necessarily owned by African Americans. However, many African Americans died during the protest not by the police, some businesses were destroyed as you have noted. This whole process is about reconciliation, we in Australia are going through the exact same thing. It’s about reconciling with those who were first, violence is contrary to the action of reconciliation.

You sound defeated. I find that disappointing. We have just witnessed 4 straight weeks of MILLIONS of people around the world leaving their normal life behind to fight for equality. People have abandoned their social media image which society asks them to create, and instead have turned to activism. We have witnessed the power of people to charge more police officers. This is a time of hope that needs to be sustained, I don’t think we should be defeated.

And of course, I took it from there!

Again, I have to disagree with you. Nothing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and crew did, amounted to anything. The Supreme Court gutted key provisions of the Voting Rights Act which is what Dr. King fought so hard for; Black people to have the right to vote and an end to Jim Crow. Many Black people are being denied the right to vote. You haven’t heard of gerrymandering? And Jim Crow never ended, it just morphed into a different way of keeping Black people from entering certain areas of town and certain restaurants, etc. Whites started building ‘gated communities’ and now we have gentrification. And so AGAIN, nothing was accomplished. I am in the states and so I know, first hand what is going down and what has been going down for my over 40 years on this planet.

And the only reason MILLIONS of people are somewhere protesting or whatever they want to call it is not because of some ‘awakening’ but because they are unemployed thanks to COVID-19, have been on lockdown for months and have had it. This was just the perfect storm of mess that coincided. You give people too much credit where none is due. I’m a realist. I see the reality of the situation while you want to believe in ‘hope and change’. We thought we had that with Barack Obama and that got us what? Donald Trump! I rest my case.

Now, I thought that we were finished, but apparently not because the author of the blog responded with this:

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I will never completely understand your oppression and struggles but I will continue to listen and try to learn. I am interested however in your statement that MLK didn’t do anything. Who do you think was responsible for the civil rights act 1968?

I disagree with you on this point completely. You are saying that millions of people were protesting just because they are sick of being in their homes? That explains nothing. That doesn’t explain the emotion on these people’s faces. That doesn’t explain the passion that led some to violence. That doesn’t explain the images of people joining together as one. Sure, maybe a few just wanted to get outside, but this was a huge movement of people joining together. I’m a realist aswell. I don’t think this is all going to fix itself in 5, 10 or 20 years. But, I am an optimistic realist, I think over time change can occur. Barack Obama wasn’t successful because he didn’t have full control of America’s politics. If Joe Biden also has support in the Senate, powerful change can always occur if it is supported by appropriate services.

Apparently, I could not let that stand and so replied:

You seriously lack knowledge of America’s political system. For his first two years in office, Barack Obama could have gotten much completed since both the Senate and the House were in the hands of the Democrats. Nothing got done. It was only after that control had shifted to the Republicans is when Obama claimed to have been stalled when attempting to get anything done.

And just what did the Civil Rights Act of 1968 accomplish? Because when you look at where Black people are today, that Act did nothing. Black people are the poster children for the faces of poverty, gentrification, homelessness, mass incarceration, income inequality, illiteracy, victims of police brutality and the list of the like is endless. An Act does nothing when the same mindset is still there and the same mindset of the whites in 1968 is still very much in evidence today.

And I know that you did not go there with regards to Joe Biden when he is mostly responsible for why American descendants of slavery are overly represented in prisons all across America due to his 1994 Crime Bill. He’s been on an ‘apology tour’ about that. You seriously need to educate yourself before speaking on issues here in America.

And we still weren’t through! His response was:

I’m disappointed this discussion had to go down this route. I thought we were debating some really interesting points and it was very insightful. However, I will not continue if we go down the persona attack route because that has no purpose.

Regardless, sorry I did not know that the first 2 years of Obama’s Presidency he had control of both the Senate and the House. I made the mistake of assuming his second term was the same as his first term. What do you think needs to be done as the first step and then possibly subsequent steps?

I wasn’t talking about the effectiveness of the act, but rather the role of MLK in creating the act. As I’ve said, legislation is only effective when it is supported by services that ensure accountability, enforcement and education.

I do know about the 1994 Crime Bill. I have researched it heavily and understand Biden’s negative impact. My point was that the two options are Trump or Biden. Clearly Trump isn’t going to achieve anything in this area other than take us backwards. If Biden can pass legislation there is a chance change could occur due to his very progressive agenda.

And even then, I could not let him get away with that!

Biden doesn’t have ANY agenda. The man is senile. If you even look at any of his political ads, the man is actually stumbling over his words. His nickname is “Slow Joe.” No one takes him seriously. He is NOT the person to beat Trump. With Joe Biden as the only alternative, Trump is a shoe-in. That is a fact. The Democrats don’t care about winning this election because they stand for exactly what Trump stands for. There is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. There is no longer any illusion of that.

Have you never stopped to wonder why Black Americans fare so poorly regardless of whether a Democrat or a Republican is at the helm? It is because there is no difference between them. Biden is not progressive and the only reason he was picked as the choice for the Democrats is based off of Biden’s position as Obama’s VP. That is all the Democrats are throwing at Trump. Someone who mumbles, is incoherent, has been groping females for decades and was Obama’s VP. Only older voters are even thinking about Biden as most of the rest of us are sighing and throwing our hands up because there is nothing to vote for.

Most of us are already preparing for the FACT that Trump is going to get re-elected. He has nothing standing in his way. And in fact, if you want to give anyone credit for what’s going down today, give it to Trump. He has made so many whites unhappy since they are also unemployed, hungry and broke, that they are expressing that anger towards Trump. But make no mistake, Trump’s base is still solidly behind him since racism is alive and kicking in Amerikkka and always will be.

Folks, we have got so many Monday morning quarterbacks, it’s ridiculous. How is someone over in Australia going to tell Black people what we need to do in so far as how we go about protesting especially when their shit reeks to the stars and back? Those descendants of convict rejects are sitting somewhere on their pasty asses talking about how peaceful our asses should be when they did not ‘peacefully’ take the land away from the Aborigines and quite frankly, to this very day, treat those people like shit! But yet, this piece of shit Botany Bay Penal Colony reject wants to get all offended when I push back on his attempts to tell us what to do here in Amerikkka. I don’t give a fuck about being polite when someone is speaking on a subject they obviously have no knowledge of whatsoever.

And I don’t even know what he meant by this!

However, I will not continue if we go down the persona attack route because that has no purpose.

How in the hell did I personally attack him? The TRUTH attacked him? Because that’s the only thing I threw at him. Not once did I cuss, throw a fit or even flip out and yet, I still get, “the persona attack route.” What the hell? Dude couldn’t handle what was coming at him, that is quite obvious and so then resorted to lying about ‘personal attacks’. For the love of !! That’s a white person for you! When they can’t best you, they claim you’ve ‘personally attacked’ them, WITH WORDS! For the love of !!!!!

As I have already stated, we have tried IT.ALL. And nothing has worked for us; not peaceful protesting, not violent protesting and this is because the system of white supremacy is going to make sure that ANY protests are going to be met with violence from the government. But it seems that according to some piece of shit over in Australia, the violence displayed by the government is nothing next to some burned out taco trucks and a fire in Target. We should just continue to love dying at the hands of the KKK that makes up police departments all across Amerikkka because some piece of shit in Australia believes everything would be okay if only we peacefully protest and vote in Joe Biden as the next president. Seriously???!!!

It is quite obviously time for me to go back to reading fluff and nonsense. The next book, that I’m getting out now, is Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

But first, this is for ‘Australian dude’.

That THUG In The White House Has The Unmitigated Gall To Call Those Protesting The Death Of George Floyd, Thugs! Seriously??!!!

The draft-dodger-in-chief and the world’s number one THUG had the audacity to take to Twitter and post this!

There would be NO need for a “memory of George Floyd” if those THUGS in blue uniforms had not killed the man for no goddamn reason other than the fact that the system of white supremacy upholds that shit and Donald ‘THUG’ Trump embodies that vicious and brutal system of white supremacy and so how dare his depraved, racist ass speak on who are thugs when there could be no greater thug on this planet than this entire piece of shit, racist shithole called, Amerikkka!

I am fed the fuck up with whites telling us that we have to go about remembering our dead, PEACEFULLY! Of course the whites want our asses to be peaceful because that way they can continue to operate their fucking businesses and the same with those immigrants whom they allowed to come here and climb on top of us because make no mistake, the business owner of Cup Foods that called the Klan on George Floyd was NOT an American descendant of slavery, but was in fact someone whom the whites had welcomed over here from elsewhere. Since there is mosque located on the ground floor of Cup Foods, more than likely, the owner of Cup Foods is probably from the Middle East somewhere and they hate our guts as well. They don’t even associate with American descendants of slavery.

I just looked up the owner of Cup Foods and voila! I was right. The owner is Mahmod Abumayaleh, who stated that many times customers come in with counterfeit money and don’t even know it’s counterfeit. He stated that if he had been in his convenience store at the time George Floyd was in there, the police would not have been called. And so I guess that it just wasn’t George Floyd’s lucky day in that Mahmod Abumayaleh was not there to tell the clerk that there was no need for police involvement, however, that is cold comfort to George Floyd since he is cold and lying on a coroner’s slab in the morgue having an autopsy performed on him so that more lies can come out as to how he died. I am pretty sure that we are going to be told that George Floyd was already dead BEFORE Officer Klan Chauvin even placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck. I mean, they’ve told countless lies already as to what occurred, in that George Floyd resisted arrest and had to be manhandled. Well, another store owner handed over a video that shows just the opposite of the kops’ lies.

And even with knowing that the kops have already begun with the lies, people who look like George Floyd should just continue to march, peacefully through the streets at allotted times and on allotted days until the white man tells them, that’s enough? Seriously??!!! They’d better not ground capitalism to a halt especially since Donald Trump just ordered the reopening of this vile shithole that coronavirus had put on lockdown.

So what??!! A goddamn AutoZone was burned to the ground. So what??!! A new apartment building was burned to the ground; those damn buildings are insured and so the rebuilding can start right away. There is no ‘rebuilding’ of George Floyd. There is no amount of insurance that can bring George Floyd back to life. And how BIG of the owner of Cup Foods to state that he “has offered to pay for Floyd’s funeral expenses.”

But as of yet, no charges have been filed against ANY of the THUGS IN BLUE UNIFORMS that took the life of George Floyd. I see, Donald Trump did NOT call those THUGS exactly what they are, GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED THUGS, and he won’t. We are to sit back and twiddle our thumbs and wait on the slow ass process of the criminal injustice system to do not a goddamn thing! The criminal injustice system is quick to dish out punishment and death to us, but when their no account asses have been found to do some filthy, dirty ass, horrendous shit, we are to sit and wait for the slow ass cogs of the law to start turning. To hell with that shit!

I have posted blog after blog after blog after blog about what American descendants of slavery have to go through in Minneapolis, MN. Every single group of immigrants, even illegal ones crawls over here and climbs right on top of us, just as they do everywhere else in this shithole built by our ancestors while we suffer abject poverty, homelessness, hunger and get shot dead or choked to death by dirty ass racist kops every goddamn day! Enough is a fucking nough!

AGAIN, as long as American descendants of slavery just accept our plight and accept us getting murdered, daily and accept having whites call the kops on us because they refuse to leash their dog or because they don’t like us having a barbecue or because they don’t want to see us taking a nap in the common area of a college dorm that we are paying tuition at or because they don’t like to see us in the pool or because they don’t like to see us doing our job of inspecting homes for fire codes and the goddamn list of the like is endless, everything is cool. But the minute we start fucking shit up, that’s when thugs like Trump get to talking about shooting us down like animals because some goddamn no account businesses are getting fucked up! TO.HELL.WITH.THOSE.GODDAMN.BUSINESSES.PERIOD. I wish the fuck I was in Minneapolis because damn it if I would take the shit lying down. Fuck you whites who sit back on your asses and watch this shit go down and look the other way or talk about how ‘violent’ the protesters are when you say nothing about how depraved, blood thirsty and racist you and those who look like you are. You are those kops that did that to George Floyd and so fuck each and every single one of you! I’m not beholden to any of you motherfuckers for shit!

I am glad Metro Transit had to shut the bus service and the light rail down. I am damn glad that 24 Target stores had to close their goddamn doors. I am glad that shit is happening because the only thing that gets the attention of the whites is when their shit is affected; when their fucking businesses are dealt with. And the infuriated protesters have been dealing with that shit!

Over four hundred years of rage is raging on the streets of cities in states all across this fucked up country and I just wish that shit would continue into perpetuity because that is what needs to happen. Damn some goddamn peaceful protesting shit! Does it look like we get any goddamn peace from you filthy ass, debased, savage, vicious, murdering white devils? Hell fucking no! And so why should we continue to march down the goddamn street doing the same thing we’ve been doing for countless decades? Ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., what peaceful protesting gets you. Oh, he can’t answer you because the government, backed by THUGS like Trump had him assassinated. You could not get more ‘peaceful’ and ‘dreamlike’ than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and still you lousy, motherfucking whites killed him and yet you expect us to continue in that vein? Not bloody likely, as you’ve seen for the last few days. Like I stated before, I just wish the protesters would continue despite Trump’s vile threats. And if a Black person had stated what Trump did, their fucking tweet would have long since disappeared and don’t we ALL fucking know this. Double fucking standards much? I’m damned tired of the shit we have to face every single day over something that is not our fault. We did NOT drag our asses over here. We did NOT immigrate here. That shit is not on us or our ancestors and you pasty assed motherfucking whites know who that shit is on, but yet you blame us, day in and day out for what YOUR goddamn worthless, lazy, rotten ass ancestors put into play. We are fucking tired of being recorded dying on the mean streets of this shithole and told to “go about effecting change, PEACEFULLY!” Shove that shit up your pasty assholes, whites! It’s about time you got a taste of your own goddamn foul ass medicine!

 

AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN!

We dance this dance again,
so move over Eric Garner.
A new video is in town;
another Black man is a goner.

March again and protest.
Where is justice? Where is peace?
There is no hint of either.
Sit down! This shit won’t cease!

Paste another face on a shirt.
Go out and scream your pain.
Blow dust off an old poster.
Let your tears blend with the rain.

Yes, here we go again.
The same writing is on the wall.
Nothing much has changed.
Black lives matter to none at all.

You really can’t see the truth?
Seriously, must you be so dense,
to think that you can change
what has never made any sense?

Our bodies don’t mean shit
to the ones you protest to.
We’ve never, ever mattered
and you know that this is true.

But still, you beg them to care.
You plead to be left alone.
They’ll walk with you for a day
And then, you are on your own.

You see, we are here on sufferance,
and have overstayed no welcome,
that was never extended to us.
We’re just an object for their venom.

Now, protest all day long.
Take it to the streets.
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
with those who wear the sheets.

Give it another month or two,
and you’ll be doing this yet again;
the very definition of crazy,
expecting justice from white men.

We Is Dead Meat To Them!

Alton Sterling, he bit the dust,
down in ole Baton Rouge.
He weren’t looking for no whores
of the like in “Moulin Rouge.”

I hear he was selling CDs,
trying to become a businessman.
But just like Eric Garner,
he needed another plan.

And now, another gentle giant
was felled by the slave patrol.
You have got to understand
that the white man is in control.

So, pick up your protest sign,
and get to marching down the street.
I know your shoes are worn out
as is your tired and aching feet.

But this is how you effect change,
like they did in Dr. King’s day.
Just ask him how that worked.
Damn! He can’t talk no way!

Dr. King was all peaceful like
as he took to the streets of hell.
He said, “I gots me a dream
and they shot him dead as well.

Oh, but things is different now.
They let you riot and go berserk
but then they say, “Alright, you’re done!”
And around your neck, that chain, they jerk!

We’re all Massa’s boys and girls.
We sing and we dance for him.
But if we got no talent at all,
then we is dead meat to them.

I wrote those two poems in 2015 and 2016 and yet they still apply today. Tell me, what the fuck has changed? But yeah! We are supposed to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up about the continuation of this shit! I don’t blame the protesters for going the fuck off. I just wish I was there with them. I wish the shit that they are doing, they’d NEVER stop doing it, but alas, my wish is in vain because this has ALL happened so many times before and it will happen again.

And as usual, when Black people go the fuck off and with GOOD GODDAMN REASON, we are always labeled, “THUGS” by the white establishment. This is what ‘our’ so called, ‘president’ thinks of American descendants of slavery. But when white males go on killing sprees, they are merely labeled, “mentally ill.” And if the Muslims get to fucking shit up because they get goddamn tired of the shit done to them by the whites, they are labeled, “terrorists!” Oh, the hypocrisy and double standards are glaringly obvious. The biggest THUGS and criminals and terrorists on this goddamn planet are WHITES and you fuckers are indeed, insane, but your insanity, you gladly embrace; fucking deranged sociopaths!

“Go rot in hell Trump! and take ALL white motherfuckers with you!”

 

 

 

 

 

HA! The White House Is Over Run With Coronavirus! I Am Literally Laughing My Ass Off!

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳 To hell with Mother’s Day since I don’t celebrate that shit anyway. Although I am a mother, ain’t a damn thing for me to celebrate as it relates to Mother’s Day and damn it if I’ll be a hypocrite and laud my mother on this day. I lauded the hell out of her on her damn birthday last year. But as usual, I digress.

‘Scary to Go to Work’: White House Races to Contain Virus in Its Ranks

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is racing to contain an outbreak of Covid-19 inside the White House, as some senior officials believe that the disease is already spreading rapidly through the warren of cramped offices that make up the three floors of the West Wing.

The concern about an outbreak of the virus at the White House — and the swift testing and contact tracing being done to contain it — underscores the broader challenge for Americans as Mr. Trump urges them to begin returning to their own workplaces despite warnings from public health officials that the virus continues to ravage communities across the country.

Most restaurants, offices and retail stores do not have the ability to regularly test all their employees and quickly track down and quarantine the contacts of anyone who gets infected. At the White House, all employees are being tested at least weekly, officials said, and a handful of top aides who regularly interact with the president are being tested daily, they said.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳 Now, let me get this straight, the Trump Administration that has been tasked with keeping Amerikkka safe during this coronavirus pandemic finds itself to be the next HOTSPOT??!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳

This could not happen to a more deserving bunch of racist, bigoted, corrupt, criminal pond scum, scum sucking bottom feeders! “CORONAVIRUS, THANK YOU!” “All hail CORONAVIRUS!”🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, this happens. Coronavirus takes up residence in the West Wing of the White House. Isn’t that where Donald Trump spends most of his time sitting up on Twitter?

Trump’s valet has coronavirus!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳 But…but…Trump did NOT want to wear a mask. In fact, he insists on not wearing a mask and so we know that his valet was not laying out a mask for Trump’s daily wear. He also insisted that Amerikkka needed to reopen for Amerikkka’s own good of course, meaning for the good of his Wall Street buddies and of course for the good of his many businesses since CAPITALISM must not be allowed to die. CAPITALISM is why health care ‘professionals’ are exclaiming over a lack of PPE. CAPITALISM is why a host of hospitals are laying off hundreds of employees during a pandemic claiming serious loss of revenue from elective surgeries that have not been taking place because who in their right mind wants to head to a hospital now what with coronavirus flowing through the air ducts and hastening the departure of the coronavirus infected?

So, Amerikkka, now that the White House is a breeding ground for coronavirus, you can feel much safer knowing that your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump has given you the green light to sit up in restaurants, head to the beaches, get on a plane with flight attendants who want you to know that they are coronavirus infected, also go to the mall, get your hair cut, get your nails done. Do every damn thing you want to do because as you can see, EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL! But for some strange reason, I cannot stop laughing! I will give it a rest on the laughing emojis but do know that as I type this, tears are streaming down my face from laughing and I am pretty sure that even after I proof read this more than a dozen times, there will be errors, but no matter, you will get the gist of this blog; THE WHITE HOUSE IS A HOT SPOT FOR CORONAVIRUS OTHERWISE KNOWN AS COVID-19!

Amerikkkans can all sleep better in their beds tonight since we know that everything is under control. Donald Trump has his hand on a handle that contains coronavirus. Things are going so well at the White House that even Trump’s ‘go to guy’, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has had to quarantine himself. Dr. Fauci said that he, too, had begun a “modified quarantine” after what he called a “low risk” contact with an infected staff member. And even Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is in quarantine as is Dr. Stephen Hahn, the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. DAAAYUM!!! These are the experts that are organizing task forces and recommending when a reopening of Amerikkka should occur as in RIGHT NOW. They ARE ALL IN QUARANTINE and so what does that say for the rest of this shithole? We don’t have to wait until Winter for the next wave, the next wave is almost upon us! Three cheers for CORONAVIRUS!!! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!

How did Trump’s expert on infectious diseases get himself into a position of having to go into a “modified quarantine?” Did he not know what ‘social distancing’ meant? So while Trump’s White House is scrambling to contain Its own coronavirus outbreak, the economy under Trump’s guidance is looking…well…read it for yourself.

Layoffs start turning from temporary to permanent across America

In an American economy negotiating a downturn that is already being likened to the 1930s Great Depression, with data on May 8 expected to show more than 20 million Americans lost their jobs in April.

Emerging from the stacks of layoff notices filed by businesses in California, Florida, and New York, where service industries have been hammered by lockdown orders, as well as politically important swing states such as Michigan and Ohio, where key industries such as steel and autos already faced headwinds going into 2020. Plenty of layoffs that just a month ago were labeled “temporary” are now tagged “indefinite” or “permanent.”

But the really ‘good’ news is that the lamestream media continues with the lies stating that the ‘recession’ is starting to bottom out even as coronavirus cases are on the rise. WHAT.THE.HELL. They are still trying to spin the hell out of shit to try and turn it into cotton candy! I ain’t buying it! But hey! For all of you Trumpsters out there, continue to buy the bullshit. Go on out and do your thing. Go to the mall. Go get your hair cut. Hell! Go on a cruise since I hear tell that Carnival Cruise Lines is about to get back up and running. So get back on that petri dish and when no country wants to accept yet another coronvirus filled ship, you can sail the oceans for longer than you want. But hey! If you’re bored…and I know that most whites are, then there you go! Carnival Cruise Lines wants you to book your next cruise that’s leaving ports in August. By then, they expect that you’ll be ready to drop dead at sea and have a sea burial because that’s exactly what is going to happen. The captain can officiate and then someone will have to officiate over his coronavirus death because make no mistake, those who work on those cruise ships are from countries that don’t even know what the word, ‘hygiene’ means. And you were thinking that the only worries you had were norovirus related. Well add coronavirus to norovirus and your ass is indeed, grass.

This bears repeating!

Most restaurants, offices and retail stores do not have the ability to regularly test all their employees and quickly track down and quarantine the contacts of anyone who gets infected. At the White House, all employees are being tested at least weekly, officials said, and a handful of top aides who regularly interact with the president are being tested daily, they said.

That means that those restaurants, retail stores, offices, hair salons, barber shops and other businesses that have reopened do NOT have the ability to test their employees for coronavirus and we ALL know that we have been told that many coronavirus infected people are asymptomatic. And yet, the White House is now testing ALL employees WEEKLY while a handful of top aides who regularly interact with Trump are tested daily. But even still, the White House is a breeding ground for coronavirus while restaurants, offices, malls and barbershops are ‘coronavirus free zones’??? Go on in and spin the wheel, throw the dice and hope that those employees at restaurants, retail stores, barbershops, nail salons and hair salons are not infected because you won’t know for certain since there are no available tests for them. You’ll just have to take them at face value that they are not just asymptomatic. How’s your luck? Those at the White House already know that their luck has run out even though they had the ability to get tested at anytime. And yet, they are, in their own words, “scared to go to work.” But Trump wants Amerikkka to return to work even as those in his own Administration are scared to go to work. Ain’t that some shit? Indeed it is, but Amerikkkans love shit from their elected racists and so you go do as you are told, “Get back to work!”

Trump has it on good authority that he’ll have coronavirus in no time flat; his valet says so. LMAO!!

The news on ALL fronts is GREAT, ain’t it??!! I mean, Trump’s White House is full of coronavirus since Trump claimed that the virus was just a hoax bandied about by the media and the Democrats to lose him the election. His own team of experts are in quarantine due to having come into contact with coronavirus infected White House staff and while all of that was going down, Trump was busy touting the reopening of Amerikkka! All’s well that ends well! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳

What The Hell Is Wrong With Republican Governors? Now South Dakota Is Set To Become The Next Coronavirus Hotspot

Now, we have all heard the mainstream media and even Donald Trump pretend to lament the number of cases of coronavirus deaths of American descendants of slavery, but who the hell do you think lives in South Dakota? Newsflash, there are only 1.7% of American descendants of slavery living in South Dakota according to the 2012 census, 86.2% of South Dakotans are White and so the latest news out of South Dakota does not bode well for this majority ‘white’ state.

South Dakota’s governor resisted ordering people to stay home. Now it has one of the nation’s largest coronavirus hot spots.

As governors across the country fell into line in recent weeks, South Dakota’s top elected leader stood firm: There would be no statewide order to stay home.

Such edicts to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, Gov. Kristi L. Noem said disparagingly, reflected a “herd mentality.” It was up to individuals — not government — to decide whether “to exercise their right to work, to worship and to play. Or to even stay at home.”

And besides, the first-term Republican told reporters at a briefing this month, “South Dakota is not New York City.”

So I suppose coronavirus was just going to remain in New York because it was having such a good time in the ‘city that never sleeps’ and so why bother venturing to South Dakota since what did South Dakota have to offer a virus? More people to infect, perchance? Because what this stupid republican governor failed to consider is that South Dakota is home to a Smithfield meat packing plant and now South Dakota is also home to one of the largest single coronavirus clusters anywhere in the United States, with more than 300 workers at a giant ­pork-processing plant falling ill. Workers had been begging for protective gear and were not receiving them and so of course, coronavirus raged through the pork processing plant and now that so many workers have tested positive for COVID-19, Smithfield has had to shut the meat packing plant down until further notice claiming that this will have a major disruption of ‘meat’ distribution to America’s grocery stores. Good! You don’t need that shit anyway. It does nothing FOR your immune system and does every type of damage. May that plant remain shuttered forever.

And of course, guess who mainly worked at that facility, immigrants; legal and otherwise. It is easier to be an illegal in South Dakota because the weather is so atrocious, who in their right mind is going to continuously seek out illegals and return them to their country? Smithfield meat packing plant has long used illegal immigrants at its facilities. The claim is that no Amerikkkans want those jobs and so illegals earn poverty wages and cannot complain too loudly about working conditions, hence why when there were calls for protective masks and gloves from the workers, none were distributed even though those workers were working elbow to elbow in an already unsanitary environment. What could go wrong?

The governor claims that she has been in consultation with Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and has been assured by him that she is doing the right thing since Kushner has instructed Crazy Kristi to see to it that those in the medical field dose their coronavirus patients with a drug[Hydroxychloroquine] that Trump has touted as the ‘cure’ for coronavirus despite a lack of scientific evidence proving its efficacy and even doctors have stated that the drug should not be used since it has the potential to cause heart problems. That pasty looking robot, Jared Kushner is the very last thing that should be giving advice on how to hang drapes, much less on what steps to take to reign in a pandemic that no one has a clue as to how to contain, especially since every single step that the Trump Administration has taken has been too little, too late, wrong and inadequate to say the least.

Crazy Kristi, as this governor should be called, is going to have the deaths of too many on her hands because of her foolish and partisan politics in attempting to kiss Trump’s ass and placate him by keeping her state ‘open’ as opposed to locked down.

Unfortunately for those immigrants who have contracted coronavirus, they are at the mercy of the merciless. Of course South Dakotans would elect a republican because South Dakota is intensely racist from one end to the other and would have it no other way and since those immigrants more than likely are unable to vote and even if they did, they are outnumbered by racists, they would not be able to elect a governor that has more than two brain cells connected and working. It is quite obvious that even during a pandemic, racism still rules the day and so Crazy Kristi will kiss Trump’s racist fat pasty ass while also ensuring that her state’s residents contract coronavirus and die. Don’t even think about asking for help from neighboring states or even states as far away as New York when the need arises and believe me, it most definitely will especially since South Dakota has already been declared the next coronavirus hot spot to emerge.

Crazy Kristi’s refusal to issue a ‘stay at home’ order is putting numerous people at risk. And the mayors of different South Dakota cities are trying to lock their cities down, but without assistance from the governor, they can only do so much. South Dakota is relatively a rural state and rural states are known for their lack of expansive medical institutions and so when the shit hits the fan, having one hospital in a 100 mile radius that only has one isolation room and two ventilators is not going to be a great set up when dealing with a pandemic. What will Jared Kushner’s advice be to Crazy Kristi once the bodies start piling up, as they most certainly will? Who will take responsibility for the deaths of thousands of South Dakotans? Or will Crazy Kristi and Jared Kushner merely shrug and claim “No responsibility” as Trump did for his lackadaisical response to this virus in the first place? North Dakotans are about to find out.

Flight Attendants Say, “Yoo Hoo! We Are Spreading Coronavirus!”

All flights need to be grounded. As long as flights are taking off, the spread of coronavirus will continue because inside those cabins, there is no fresh air. Everyone is breathing the same air and so airplanes are causing coronavirus to spread, exponentially, and not only just among the plane’s crew, but also among the plane’s passengers. What is going to happen when pilots start falling ill? Planes are not going to be able to take off then. And if flight attendants are falling ill, so will pilots because they are in close contact with one another. Has no one thought of that?

“We’re Definitely Spreading It”: Flight Attendants Fear They Are Losing The Fight Against Coronavirus

In interviews and emails with TIME, more than a dozen flight attendants describe a continuing shortage of basic protection and a confounding lack of guidance over how to do their jobs without spreading the disease. Their gravest concern: that after weeks of working without proper supplies, they have been exposed to thousands of cases and in turn become primary transmitters to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who continue to fly every day. “It’s awful, because we know we’re definitely spreading it, seat to seat, city to city, person to person, hotel to hotel,” one Atlanta-based flight attendant who has been in the job for 15 years tells TIME.

That is just horrible! AGAIN, all flights should be grounded, but because capitalism, somehow, must never completely grind to a halt, the spread of coronavirus continues, unabated. This shows you just how concerned this country’s ‘leadership’ is about getting a handle on coronavirus.

And as if that is not bad enough, this next story shines a glaring light on the need for the airline industry to be grounded.

As coronavirus cases grow, hospitals adopt a system to rank patients for treatment
With the peak of Covid-19 infections still ahead and medical supplies still scarce, hospitals and physicians are gearing up for a nearly impossible challenge: deciding who gets a life-saving ventilator and who doesn’t.

The demand for ventilators has skyrocketed in intensive care units across the country as coronavirus patients have flooded in. Typically, adult patients will stay in the ICU — and on a ventilator — for only three to four days, as one Connecticut doctor explained, but Covid-19 patients need them for up to two or three weeks, dramatically increasing demand.

What people don’t seem to understand is that the coronavirus is not the only problem, the problem is that sick people who need ventilators won’t get them because the coronavirus has made the shortage of ventilators, worse. People who ordinarily would need to be on ventilators and who do not have coronavirus will find themselves left without them and so others who would have otherwise lived, will die due to a lack of ventilators. And those ‘hospital ships’ that were supposed to relieve overcrowded hospitals, well, they aren’t doing the job. Due to governmental red tape, those hospital ships are nowhere near capacity when it comes to taking over as backup facilities for hospital patients who don’t have coronavirus.

This is almost a perfect tsunami of failures, outrageous failures in the so-called, richest country on the planet with the most military bases of any other country, with the most bloated military budget of all other countries combined and yet in a crisis, the military is useless. In fact, the military is so useless, a warship docked in Guam is loaded down with coronavirus cases and the captain of the ship was fired simply because he was a ‘good’ captain who was trying to save the lives of his crew when he sent a letter to navy officials asking them to let his men go into isolation on Guam. His letter went unanswered until it was published by the media and that is when his crew was allowed to leave the ‘death ship’ and go into quarantine. So in other words, the captain was fired for trying to save the lives of his crew and we are to believe that those same degenerate shits that had no problem ignoring the fact that sailors were contracting a deadly contagion and were collapsing, to give a shit about the rest of US? Seriously? This is why the response to coronavirus has been so negligible, because those worthless shits don’t give a damn about us. The only thing they’ve tried to do is to mitigate the fallout for the corporate world; Wall Street. That stimulus bill is not helping average Americans who are being adversely impacted by all of this. Just read what flight attendants have to say about how they are treated during this pandemic. They are afraid to speak out for fear of reprisal; for fear of losing their job. They can’t even tell people that they have coronavirus even as they assist the disabled and elderly on board planes. They are helping to cause the very population that has been touted as the face of coronavirus to breathe their last because they are breathing coronavirus onto the elderly and the disabled. And the government and the airline industry is very much aware of that, but has the shit ceased? Hell no!

Americans are more terrified of losing their jobs than they are of losing their lives since they will continue to go into work knowing that they stand a greater chance of contracting this killer contagion. Everything should have ground to a halt. That is why China was able to get a handle on its coronavirus cases, but because we live in a country that puts profits over people and always will, we will continue to see cases of coronavirus grow, not wane. Americans have become so conditioned to head to work despite all hell, that they are willing to sacrifice not only themselves to a contagion, but their families and their fellow Americans and yet, many will hail themselves as heroes for continuing to report to work to move asses around the country who should stay put and not continue to spread this virus to all and sundry. What sense does that make? None! We are a nation of insane, idiotic, mindless worker drones! That is quite obvious. What is so great about that?

Why is Amazon still open despite the fact that it no longer has ESSENTIAL items to sell? Warehouse workers are falling ill with coronavirus and yet are still expected to stand on the warehouse floor and fill orders for nail polish, toys and games. Those are non essential items. No one in America gives a damn about anyone else because if they did, the uproar to shut all of this shit down would be deafening, but is it? Hell no! And the reason why is because ‘stuck at home American’s still want fun and games delivered to their door and damn the consequences. That’s how we roll!

What I am glad about is the fact that the rest of the world is watching this total lunacy go down and has finally gotten clued in as to how deranged Americans are and are realizing that our ways are not to be emulated. They are realizing that the countries that this shithole has vilified are not the bad guys; this fucking shithole is. Countries that have been sanctioned by this shithole are finally receiving help from other countries despite being sanctioned by this hellhole. No country on this planet should follow in the footsteps of this one and if coronavirus has done nothing else, it has shown this fucked up country for what it really is; a dumb, stupid schoolyard bully that uses its military might to get what it wants from all others and when it has to stand alone and figure shit out, it blames others instead of standing up and admitting to its faults. And we have many. And don’t a goddamn one of you Americans doubt that shit. “American exceptionalism” is clearly a myth. What is so exceptional about being #1 in coronavirus cases? I rest my fucking case!

As Usual, Black People Have To Show How It’s Done By Walking Off The Job At Amazon

White folks want to always drone on and on about how they take the initiative in order to get things done. Oh you take the initiative alright when it comes to fucking up our lives while we have to take the initiative to fight against you for our right to even exist in this shithole called, Amerikkka. But it is mostly Black people who are having to fight for their right to exist while working at Amazon warehouses where they are expected to fulfill NON-ESSENTIAL orders with many of their co-workers falling ill with coronavirus.

Michigan Amazon workers walk off the job as 3rd coronavirus case confirmed at facility

 

Amazon workers at the distribution center in Romulus, Michigan, walked off their jobs Wednesday at noon in response to the company’s failure to protect the health of its employees amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Recently, two positive cases of coronavirus have been found at the DTW1 fulfillment center and a third was confirmed early Wednesday morning.

Mario Crippen, a leader of the walkout and a worker at the DTW1 fulfillment center, took to the microphone and said the company should not continue to sell non-essential items. However, many essential items are out of stock.

So let me get this straight, Amazon is not making those workers continue to put themselves and their families at risk by working to sell ‘essential’ items, they are keeping those workers on the warehouse floor to send lazy ass motherfuckers some stupid shit that could wait. More than likely those workers’ lives are on the line over sending out nail polish, games, toys and other shit of the like for the ‘shelter in place’ crowd to entertain themselves and their little hellions. I would walk the fuck out too!

How in the world can Amazon state that it is doing everything possible to make sure that its employees are protected and working in a safe environment when not one, not two, but three employees all working at the same facility have tested positive for COVID-19? Spouting useless rhetoric from a form letter does nothing when the health and safety of workers are meaningless to employers as is the case with Amazon.

And AGAIN, I reiterate as I’ve done multiple times, I have NEVER in my life ordered a goddamn thing from Amazon and I never will. I don’t give a damn if I have to go around butt ass naked, never will I encourage the flagrant abuse and contempt for those who must work in an Amazon warehouse by purchasing a goddamn thing from Amazon. But apparently, the rest of this world is filled with brain dead, lazy ass motherfuckers who could care less about anyone so long as their fucking games, toys, nail polish and other stupid shit is heading out of Amazon warehouses and if they contain coronavirus, shut the fuck up! You asked for this shit and now you’re going to get it because it is quite obvious that Amazon doesn’t give a fuck about its customers because those sick employees ‘laid hands’ on those products that are coming to your door via a delivery driver who has touched a package that also probably contains coronavirus and so the spread of this contagion continues.

When will you stupid dumb fucks ever wake up from your hypnotic stupor and get with the program that Amazon workers are not going to be the only ones impacted? When you order shit, that shit you order has the potential to be carrying an extremely lethal contagion and despite what those in the medical field are recommending, I have seen plenty of people touch shit and then touch their faces. Sometimes, it is just a reflex action since some people have been doing that for too damn long and can’t stop now.

But as usual, I digress, there is picture after picture of American descendants of slaves taking the initiative to try and take care of their health and those of their loved ones by refusing to put themselves and their families at risk despite the obvious financial consequences they face. While the whites are running for the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts, Black people are expected to still stand somewhere in a warehouse next to the coronavirus sick just so that they can send out your fucking games and toys for your brats, is that about right? I would ask how do you whites sleep at night, but I know how you can sleep at night. In order for something like this to keep you up, you must first have to have a conscience, a heart, empathy, compassion, a moral compass and humanity and those are ALL the things you whites lack, down to the last one of you. And so what can I expect but what I see from you since I know that you are the most cold sludged (you don’t have blood) parasites ever to slither and crawl across this planet and that is why I don’t have a problem calling you debased rejects from who the hell knows where whatever I damn well please since nothing I could say could hurt your feelings because you must first have feelings in order for them to be hurt and you have none!

Black folks otherwise known as American descendants of slaves, I beg of you to stand in solidarity with one another through these tough times. I know how  tough it is. I know that things are bad for us. Hell! They’ve always been bad for us because just like I read earlier today, “when Amerikkka catches a cold, we catch pneumonia.” That shit is so goddamn true, it ain’t even funny. Please, I beseech you to hang in there. Hold tight to one another, help whenever you can and like everything else that’s been thrown at us, we have managed to get through it. We have always been the face of poverty, strife, suffering, homelessness, hunger, incarceration, drug addiction because the whites would have it no other way, but also remember that through it all, we are still here. Though many of us have fallen, many who paved the way for us to be here today, suffered hell on earth as well. We can but continue to struggle on in the face of hatred from an insane enemy the world will never have firsthand knowledge of as we do. This world’s people only get a taste of the sheer hell that these rabid beasts called, whites’ visit on us. We get the shit, up close and personal.

Finally, though we flounder and some of us will fall there will also be those of us who survive just like we always do and so stand proudly on that strike line. Refuse to be the face of coronavirus, if you can help it. Just like one of you said in the video, you are not the Red Cross, you are not a hero and so therefore, you are not obligated to stand somewhere on a warehouse floor and contract a killer virus just so that you can send some damn nail polish and toys to some parasite that wants you dead anyway. You are not expendable. You are not going to endanger your health and safety and that of your family members for multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos’ ass and those filthy ass whites and some dumb Black folks that helped him get to that status. He nor they are risking their lives on warehouse floors to get non-essential items out and neither should you. Tell them ALL to “Go straight to hell!” Those motherfuckers can just do without, we have to. And fuck all y’all motherfuckers out there that love all up and down on some damn Amazon and act like nothing existed before that goddamn bullshit. You’re all pathetic worms for jumping on the goddamn Amazon bandwagon. Too bad, logic and thought left the building and its place, we now have, apathy, complacency and laziness. More’s the goddamn pity.

This poem is for MY Black folks out there and you know who you are!

When You Get Tired….!

 

When you get tired of dying before your eighteenth birthday
 and when you’re tired of hearing that you’re worthless anyway,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the fire in your soul
 will burn through your body that is four hundred years old.

When you get tired of police brutality and the injustice of gentrification,
 and when you get tired of the school-to-prison pipeline of no education,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the marching on tired feet
 will not be enough to quench the thirst for liberation and you won’t accept defeat.

When you get tired of the National Guard getting called out to stop you
 and when they fire the shots at your tired, worn-out body, though that’s nothing new,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you must heed the words of Malcolm X.
For no man can continue to surrender to ropes tightened around innocent necks.

And when you get tired of mass incarceration because of the color of your skin
 and when the cops are on your ass from sun up to sun down, yet again,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you will listen to the anger in your heart.
For no Black man, woman or child can resist the revolution and you must take part.

And when the smoke has cleared and so many lie dead or wounded from the fight
 and when you think that what you did was all for nothing and that good is never right,
 that protest sign that you put down, shove it up the white man’s ass and turn around
And torch everything in sight; every white man’s asset, burn it to the ground!

When you get tired, my Black brothers and sisters, you will realize that protest signs, marches and hands raised in the air is not enough. When you get tired of hearing that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to be revered for his non-violent stance of supplicating himself to his enemy and encouraged you to do likewise, you will then realize your only course of action and you will take it. The white man knows this and that is why he is hell-bent on incarcerating you off the streets; that is why he is hell-bent on donning that blue or brown uniform, once he sheds his white sheet, and commences to riddle you with hundreds of bullets. He knows what’s coming. You don’t. Not yet. But you will. Yes, that’s right. He already knows what his fate is and who is going to seal it, but you don’t. Not yet. But you will. And when you do, it is game over for him and he knows that!

I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence. –


I wrote that poem, as you can see, in 2015 and today, the whole world is in the grips of a pandemic. Take this time to act because as confusion reigns and the government is trying to lock us all down, either our rights will never be regained from this,(the few we have) or we will forage a new path because a new path is what is needed. Look around you, the time is ripe. In multiple states, there are calls for rent strikes. In multiple states, there are calls for strikes, walk-outs, sit-outs and the momentum is building. People are sick of this shit! This is exactly what we needed to happen. Corporations get bailed out to the tune of billions while millions of mostly Black low wage workers are being handed a measly $1,200 if and when the IRS gets around to it. Also, those who are seniors/veterans/disabled are being told that they will have to file a tax return since many of them are so low income, there has been no need for them  to ever file a tax return. The military is fucked up to the point whereas the pentagon is refusing to admit to how many soldiers are actually down with coronavirus. In some states, the doors of jails are opening to release prisoners due to the spread of coronavirus.

Soon kkkops will be falling down with coronavirus. First responders are coming down with this. Even in this dead ass burg, it was announced that a firefighter has coronavirus. Pretty soon, homes and businesses on fire will be burning the fuck up because there’ll be no one to put them out. So, in other words, strike while the iron is hot! The uber rich ain’t circling the damn oceans in their super yachts for nothing or they are sitting in so-called luxury underground bunkers trying to wait this shit out. One goddamn flaming hypocritical piece of filthy shit billionaire had the gonads to post a pic of himself sailing on his yacht talking about, “What a way to escape the coronavirus.” The outcry over that was so damn loud, the filthy fucker took the pic down. They are laughing at us over the fact that they can just escape in their yachts and bunkers and mansions in the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts and leave us all to continue plodding along enriching their pockets as we risk contracting this virus while their shit gets bailed out. Fuck that!

If we fail to take this golden opportunity, we will never forage a new path because believe me, if they ever get a handle on this coronavirus, the shit is still not going to return to ‘normal’ because since the government thinks it has effectively locked us all down, (for our own good according to them) do you seriously think that they won’t up the ante if and when this virus is under control? Exactly!

 

I Guess Former Governor Of Alaska, Sarah Palin, Is Vindicated Since It Would Appear That Her Infamous ‘Death Panels’ Are Here!

 

Since coronavirus reared its viral head in the U.S. months ago, and is causing havoc, pandemonium, bedlam and chaos, hospitals, by virtue of the federal government not providing enough funding for ALL who are going to need medical care, are going to start deciding who gets treatment and who merely receives palliative care.

It’s no different from New York: ‘Urban centers nationwide gird for catastrophic virus outbreak

Underscoring the precarious situation in Detroit, the Henry Ford Health System drafted a grim letter to patients and their families explaining the hospital’s calculations if it doesn’t have enough equipment to treat everyone.

“Some patients will be extremely sick and very unlikely to survive their illnesses even with critical treatment,” the letter explained. “Treating these patients would take away resources for patients who might survive.”

Among those who would not be eligible were those suffering severe heart, lung, kidney or liver failure, as well as those with terminal cancer. They would get palliative care, the letter said.

For those of you who don’t know what palliative care is, it is merely keeping the dying as comfortable as possible as they breathe their last.

And so, we have come to the dreaded Sarah Palin ‘death panels’; the making of decisions on who receives treatment based on their condition and if their condition is already fucked up, those patients will receive NO care if they are hospitalized with coronavirus.

Remember this little gem from what we all assumed was dizzy ass herself, Sarah Palin? She doesn’t sound so dizzy now, does she? Those ‘death panels’ of hers were considered to be a myth, but they are a ‘myth’ no more, at least in Detroit.

Death panel” is a political term that originated during the 2009 debate about federal health care legislation to cover the uninsured in the United States.[1] Sarah Palin, former Republican Governor of Alaska, coined the term when she charged that proposed legislation would create a “death panel” of bureaucrats who would decide whether Americans—such as her elderly parents, or children with Down syndrome—were “worthy of medical care”.[2] Palin’s claim has been referred to as the “death panel myth”,[3] as nothing in any proposed legislation would have led to individuals being judged to see if they were worthy of health care.[4]

Let me focus on the last sentence for a minute. “Palin’s claim has been referred to as the “death panel myth,” as nothing in any proposed legislation would have led to individuals being judged to see if they were worthy of health care.

Hmmmm..Now let’s read what’s coming out of the Henry Ford Health System again, shall we?

“Some patients will be extremely sick and very unlikely to survive their illnesses even with critical treatment,” the letter explained. “Treating these patients would take away resources for patients who might survive.” Among those who would not be eligible [to receive care for their coronavirus symptoms would be those who] were  suffering severe heart, lung, kidney or liver failure, as well as those with terminal cancer. They would get palliative care, the letter said.

Now after reading the above in italics, what would you call what is about to go down? An act of kindness? Weeding out the wheat from the chaff? Making sure that only the strong survive? “Death panels” by ‘virtue’ of a hospital’s decision as to who is too sick to receive care for their coronavirus symptoms thanks to a dearth of needed medical supplies? It would appear that ‘death panels’ wins, hands down and the other questions, get in line.

According to the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, these drastic measures must be taken since the federal government has been derelict in its duty to provide hospitals with the essential equipment they need to meet the needs of ALL sick patients regardless of their condition upon admission during this pandemic. In other words, only the strong will survive. Those who are weak as in immunocompromised or with other underlying health conditions will be allowed to die without receiving any necessary care whatsoever in attempts to cure them of coronavirus.

So to those of you out there who have any of the medical conditions that I have mentioned, remain indoors and away from any contact with persons who have been out and about and who have not heeded ‘shelter in place’ orders as you will be the first ones to be allowed to die without any attempts at any pretense of treating your coronavirus symptoms if you come down with coronavirus. This shit is serious and no amount of pretending that it isn’t is going to make this shit go away.

This government and capitalism, and that includes corporate big heads that control and run this shithole and our dependence on that which we should never have become dependent on, is going to cause the demise of millions. There will not be enough N95 masks, surgical masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes or other PPE (personal protection equipment) or ventilators to go around, despite what lying Donald Trump says to the contrary. Hospitals everywhere in Amerikkka are rationing those as I type this and there is no containment of this virus in sight. In fact, quite the opposite. So this pandemic is going to get worse, not better!

Read this and weep(some more)!

Spread of coronavirus accelerates in U.S. jails, prisons

Inmates have no access to gloves or proper masks and have only cold water to wash their hands, said Sean Hernandez, an inmate at Riker’s Island jail system who was convicted of attempted murder and has served eight years. He said inmates watched on Thursday as a guard coughed, her cheeks turned red and she collapsed to the ground.

As of Friday, at least 80 staff and 103 inmates at jails across New York City had tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. The virus appears to be spreading quickly through a jail system famous for its overcrowded cell blocks. Since Sunday, jails have reported 104 staff and 146 inmates with confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Now couple that with the fact that this shithole incarcerates more people than any other nation in the world, and there is your recipe for further disaster. According to the article, as of 2017, there are nearly 2.3 million mostly American descendants of slaves behind bars. What is being done to protect inmates, especially since the article also states that since some jails are letting prisoners go, they are not testing them to see if they are being released all eaten up with coronavirus? What do you think is going to happen when those prisoners are released and are standing next to you in a grocery store or in a drug store or in the few remaining businesses that are open since they have been deemed, “essential?” They are not going to just take coronavirus home to their loved ones, they are going to deposit coronavirus on buses and light rails, subways and any other means of public transportation that is still up and running. And since we ALL need food, they are going to be standing beside you and behind you in the grocery store check-out because we all know that symptoms of the virus don’t tend to show up overnight.

Folks, the writing is on the wall. You are going to be holed up for quite some time because the U.S. has put in place the “Perfect Storm” for pandemics to ravage this country, unabated since private sector businesses run this shithole and the private sector is all about profits over people. That’s capitalism for you. Every single public sector entity that was formed to aid and assist in times of horrific crises were de-funded by damn near every single Republican Administration. At least Obama created and funded an agency tasked to act in times of a pandemic crisis and along comes Donald Trump to de-fund and eliminate it right before a pandemic struck. You see, Donald Trump is a ‘private sector business’ kinda guy. Ain’t it just wonderful to have THAT in charge? This is why Sarah Palin’s ‘death panels’ are REAL. This is why there will be a rationing of care which will lead to health care workers deciding who is too sick to make it and so just let them die already. Never mind the fact that there may have been a sliver of a chance that some poor schmuck would have made it, we won’t ever know because the decision is not in our hands. Your grandmother’s life is going to become a roll of the dice. Is she a viable candidate to survive the virus with her underlying health conditions? Yes? No? Make her as comfortable as you can while she lies on that stretcher and breathes her last; palliative care. This is what we as a society has come to. We are why we have come to this and so don’t now turn around and say that you weren’t warned because even dizzy ass Sarah Palin called it when she said that ‘they’ would create a “death panel” of bureaucrats [aka health care workers in this instance] who would decide whether Americans—such as her elderly parents, or children with Down syndrome—were “worthy of medical care”.[2]

Sound familiar? Yeah, it does! Sarah Palin may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but “even a broken clock is right twice a day.”

It Took Coronavirus To Get Water Turned On For Poor Black Residents Of Detroit While Rich Whites Party

In one of my older posts, I highlighted the glaring differences in Amerikkka and how there are two Amerikkkas; one for those of us who are descendants of people who were dragged to these shores and one for those who are descendants of those who dragged us to these shores. And so this is a continuation of that blog.

Her water was shut off because of unpaid bills. Then the coronavirus hit.

DETROIT — The cold winter months were grueling for Valaria Griffin. The city of Detroit shut off her water late last fall because of unpaid bills and a broken plumbing valve that she couldn’t afford to fix. Griffin, 55, was forced to rely on donated bottled water to drink, cook and bathe. She used space heaters to warm her home; without running water, the boiler didn’t work.

But now that we have been told to wash our hands and then wash our hands some more, the City of Detroit announced a water restart plan on March 9 to cover the cost of water restoration, limit residents’ payments to $25 a month and defer old water debts until the health crisis is over. The city, the state and the local plumbers’ union are covering the cost of home repairs needed to restore water.

Valaria Griffin owns her home and was working up until she was laid off from her job of 31 years for an insurance company in 2016 and due to her age, has been having a difficult time finding work. Unfortunately, paying bills does not end when a job does because if it did, Valaria Griffin would not be in the position she is in today; unable to get necessary plumbing work done and an inability to keep the water on. Ms. Griffin goes on to say, “You wouldn’t believe this is happening in a country that’s touted as a leader of the free world.”

Unfortunately Ms. Griffin, many of us who look like you can believe it because it is happening to too many of us who look like you. We are the face of poverty and it is ALL done by design. While mostly white spring breakers were busy drinking and partying while stating that “If I get corona, I get corona,” millions of Black Amerikkkans were just trying to survive amidst a pandemic that we take seriously because we have to. We don’t have the money to call up realtors in the Hamptons and head for ‘greener’ pastures. We don’t have the money to call up realtors and head for the desert or the mountains. Whites are taking to running to their second homes or are renting homes where they believe they can hide away from the coronavirus while Black Amerikkkans must stay put, wait it out and hope for the best in third world like conditions. Ever the hopeful ones whites are that we sicken and die by the millions from this virus while they attempt to escape via parties and by distancing themselves.

And according to members of congress and the White House, people only need sit back and wait for their BIGLY, HUGELY, GIGANTIC BAILOUT in the form of $1,200 stimulus checks to be mailed out or direct deposited within a couple of weeks even though the IRS has said, “Not so fast!” You see, thanks to budget cuts, and you all know about the budget cuts that have been going around faster than the coronavirus, what with the entire agency that was supposed to kick in if a pandemic struck having its budget cut so bad that those cuts eliminated the agency in its entirety, budget cuts have also negatively impacted the IRS which has been hobbled. The IRS will most likely not get around to sending out those much needed checks for months, to those of you who have been slated to receive them, that is. You see the technology used by the IRS is from the 1960s and coupled with fewer employees thanks to budget cuts, a tax season underway and now stimulus checks to process…uh…you’re going to be waiting.

Meanwhile, millions of Amerikkkans have also filed or tried to file for unemployment to the point whereas even that call center is sporadically operating, but somehow, this is ALL good news to Wall Street. Stocks are on the rebound even though the unemployment numbers are shooting up faster than the price of stock in Purell.

And I wouldn’t look to the military to be of much use because as coronavirus spreads among the different branches of the military, the military is trying to withhold infection data. Word is that, this data would be a ‘national security threat’ since our ‘enemies’ would know if they could kick our asses over here if they were to be made aware of just how many U.S. military personnel were out on sick leave. Even the Pentagon has not escaped the ravages of coronavirus and so there ya go.

So even as Ms. Griffin struggles to wash her hands without water seeing as how she can find no water in the stores and her water is still shut off awaiting repairs, wealthy whites are finding ways to encourage other wealthy whites to keep their chin up during this time of crisis in that they cannot leave their homes and head to Country Clubs, golf courses, spas, Starbucks, gyms, upscale restaurants, Disney World and Disneyland or shop til they drop at the few remaining brick and mortar stores. Whites are going so far as to re-hang Christmas decorations to keep their spirits up while they engage in drinking spirits since, apparently, liquor stores have been deemed, ‘necessary’ entities that need to remain open. Not to mention, whites and their neighbors in their gated communities are posting pictures on their windows to send messages of ‘rainbows’ at the end of this coronavirus crisis and that skiing in Aspen is merely postponed.

And this is just unbelievable!

For the love of !!!!!

While poor Ms. Griffin in Detroit has to deal with this!

Ms. Griffin, this may be cold comfort to you, but no amount of fake money that congress and the White House throws at this virus situation is going to make a difference in the outcome in that nothing will ever be the same, and that will include those who are white as well. They can post videos of their parties, their arrogance in claiming that they “ain’t scared of no corona.” They can try hiding out at the Hamptons and in the mountains and deserts, but they cannot escape their fate. This virus is not just going to impact us. Their asses are impacted as well and that is going to continue because there was no protocol whatsoever in place to deal with this pandemic and that is becoming crystal clear. Even a blind, deaf mute that’s been planted knows that as well. Trump and the Republicans as well as the Democrats could give a rat’s ass about the plight of millions of Amerikkkans, that much should be clearly understood since all they intend to do is throw a few measly dollars at some Amerikkkans while propping up the airlines, the cruise lines, the hospitality industry and the Asians. Oh yes, they are also attempting to prop up the Asians who claim to have lost out on business at Asian restaurants, but if you’re Black and own a business, forget about it!

For all you filthy, debased whites out there, know this, your ass is grass. I don’t give a damn about your picture postings or your Christmas decorations and neither does this virus. Your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump wants you to take your depraved asses and sit them up in churches on Easter Sunday. Please…please…do as he says and just sit back and wait for the shit to hit the fan. If you think that this shit is a pandemic now, go sit your ass up in church on Easter Sunday and believe in and pray to YOUR bullshit god that everything is gonna be alright and back to ‘YOUR normal’ in no time flat, I wish you would! And then come on back up in here and leave me a comment to let me know how ‘well’ you’re faring. I’ll be more than happy to post your comment so that others can know just how great things are for you. Yeah! Do me that favor, why doncha!
