Earl Shay
Here's what happened in VA. People protesting the removal of our Confederate Monuments (American History) got a permit to protest at 10:00. Now, let's not forget they had to take it to top Va State District Court to get their 1st Amendment right acknowledged and permit from the City & State!
Early yesterday morning Antifa members as well as BLM were being flown and bused in from around the country. (We all know who paid their way there)
At 8:45am Va Governor & Charlottesville Mayor, who didn't want the Confederate Monument protesters there to begin with, sends police in to cancel a protest that hadn't even started. They forced the protesters out in the streets to a waiting mob of Antifa-fa and BLM. The police were given orders to stand down and let the protesters be attacked.
This was a set up by the Virginia governor to take away protesters 1st amendment rights.
It doesn't matter what the protesters had to say. They had a right to say it.

Re: “Ally Miller Chickens Out: Under Fire for 'White Pride' Comments, Supervisor Skips Today's Board Meeting

THIS IS THE AD SOLICITING FOR PEOPLE WHO WILL WEAR BLACK LIVES MATTER AND KKK SHIRTS TO BE BUSED INTO CHARLOTTE, VIRGINIA. SOMEONE, PLEASE TELL THE CEOs WHO LEFT TRUMP THEY'VE BEEN DUPED. DUPED!!!!
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS A CONTRIVED SOROS SUPPORTED INCIDENT LEFTISTS ARE GOING NUTS TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICAN HISTORY REMEMBER THESE TRAITORS WERE BURNING OUR AMERICAN FLAG.
Why Was This 'Crowd Hire' Company Recruiting $25 An Hour 'Political Activists' I...


Until Soros is extradited to the countries that have a warrant on him this turmoil will not end. Good morning friends .Today in the aftermath of Charlottesvile patriots need to understand that Charlottesville was an agent provocateur incident incited by ANTIFA...This is a front group largely organized by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn of Weather underground infamy and funded by SOROs ANTIFA militants were bussed in primed to attack wearing helmets ,body armor and armed with clubs and brass knuckles .. As you watch news footage look for the ones dressed in black wielding clubs ..these are the ANTIFA terrorists This event was a replay of Ayers and Dohrn's 1968 " A Day of Rage " action in Chicago. (Google for more back ground )
The C' Ville event was planned to coincide with a parallel demonstration by KKK and others to provoke violence and to smear President Trump. as a racist . The left media is pushing this propaganda line .
Notice that Hillary swamp rat Gov. MCCauliffe's statement wholly ignored any reference to ANTIFA's role in inciting violence and instead focused exclusively on the KKK and white "supremacists " The KKK ,David Duke and others protesting the removal of Lee's statue were wittingly or unwittingly the "useful idiots" and pawns of those like Ayers Soros and other anti American communists and fascists who orchestrated the ANTIFA attack to advance the left agenda to bring down President Trump
As President Trump has said ...the single most important value to remember as we fight through this turmoil and sedition is that whatever is our race ,gender or creed WE ARE AMERICANS FIRST .

Skinny, oh, come on. Lighten up. I mean, you guys are having a protest sponsored by a yoga studio to protest "racism"? It's beyond self-parody.

So faux-clever, Nathan, but I don't do yoga. Never been inside a yoga studio in my life, not that there's anything wrong with it. And not that it has anything whatsoever to do with cultural appropriation. (WTF??)

In the absence of any logically or morally defensible position, is that the best you can do? Incredibly stoopid broadsides at yoga? Wow.

Maybe you should go post at Breitbart, where the intellectual and moral vacuity is more your speed...

Skinnyman, maybe you could start your quest to destroy "white supremacy" by ending your white colonization and cultural appropriation of the sacred, east Indian religious practice of yoga.

A person with any "pride" would show up for work and defend her indefensible position. She should be docked a days pay.

Re: “Ally Miller Chickens Out: Under Fire for 'White Pride' Comments, Supervisor Skips Today's Board Meeting

Correction on the electoral analysis: REPUBLICAN voters in northwest Tucson--the ones who elected and then re-elected Ally Miller despite her unhinged antics and toxic politics--are LAME.

When will Republicans take responsibility for their party's predominant role in perpetuating racism, bigotry and discrimination? For 50 years the GOP has been blowing the racist dog whistle. Is it any surprise that a racist scumbag like Tchump now leads them? Not at all--those Nazis in Charlottesville are his base, and he knows it, which is why he plays to them like Nero fiddling for Rome.

Instead, we get apologists like Ally Miller and Nathan K, who never passes up a chance to weigh in on the side of white supremacy.

Tell you what, Nathan--I'm a white man, and here's one interest of mine that I guarantee you don't share. I want to destroy white supremacy, as soon as possible and by any means necessary, before it kills tens of millions of people again like it did in the past century.

All good people need to show up to the Board of Supes meeting on Sept. 5 and hold Ms. Miller and her apologists accountable, and keep showing up until she summons the courage (if she has any) to face the music.

You talk in coded language. Why don't you step up to the plate and tell us what exactly are the "common interests" we white people share? You know, because we're all the same...

Re: “Paul Durham for City Council

Yes, Peabo, we judge candidates by how well they represent us. At a candidate forum, people showed their approval for Felicia Chew's position by applauding. They did not show approval for the positions of Tom or Paul. How is that "personality politics"? I think it's just plain politics.

If you don't want to vote for Felicia, then vote for Tom. Paul is the worst of the three, and the Weekly completely messed up here, like when they endorsed all the bonds that the people ended up defeating.

Serena, you are not entitled to define or deconstruct a white person's identity. You don't get to tell someone, "you're not entitled to white identity", any more than you are entitled to tell a trans woman that she's not actually a woman, or a light skinned black person that they are not really black.

If you don't like Ally Miller you can get rid of her thru the election process. It doesn't do a bit of good just verbally trashing a person who has no empathy for other human beings or even a hint that there is a soul in that callous hollow facade. Miller will probably get re-elected because the voters in Pima county are LAME.

Re: “Ally Miller Chickens Out: Under Fire for 'White Pride' Comments, Supervisor Skips Today's Board Meeting

"It is all about making us feel like we need to apologize"
We DO need to apologize, for our own transgressions and our own racism and we need to be instrumental in dismantling institutional racism.
Honestly, once this country truly apologizes and makes amends for the racism that has gone down things will change.
But until then Ally, you are perpetuating the problem.
Put your big girl panties on, get some skin and take a look at your own s***.

Re: “Ally Miller Chickens Out: Under Fire for 'White Pride' Comments, Supervisor Skips Today's Board Meeting

She didn't say she was proud to be Irish. She didn't say she was proud to be Danish, or Swedish, or even German. She said "white." "White Pride" is solely associated with white supremacy and has nothing to do with pride in heritage. And don't fire back at me about tribal pride, because it isn't like slave ships kept family tree charts for posterity.

Ally Miller, you screwed up. If you can't show up to work, even if it means you have to acknowledge where you went wrong and eat your well deserved helping of crow before getting back down to business, it is time to resign.

Re: “The Skinny

Anyone who wants to stop white,black,brown or yellow protesters is missing the point. All protesters are free to do so with the proper permit. And the "unite the right" March was constitutional protected people. Wake up before we all lose these rights.

Re: “The Skinny

She has a right to say what she wants. It's amazing how many people throw the racist word around. Is it racist to be free of feelings of " white guilt"? Do I have to apologize for being of European decent? You people are so narrow minded. The hate talk that is on here is just as appalling as a white nationalist march. Grow up hater.
