‘Every white person has a little Hitler in them’?

October 22nd, 2014
And here I thought it was indigestion...

Muhammed Akil resigned this week.

Gone is his $120,000 job as the mayor's Chief of Staff.

Akil quit after reports surfaced that the black American once claimed that all white people "have a little Hitler in them.”

Akil will keep his $85,000 annual paycheck as systems analyst position.

Akil works for Jersey City, NJ.

Mayor Steven Fulop's chief of staff, Muhammed Akil, has decided to resign a week after news broke that 20-years-ago he made racially inflammatory remarks in a speech at a conference in Chicago.

As Chasing previously reported, Akil's comments included: "all white people have a little Hitler in them,” as well as referring to the Pope as the "anti-Christ''. Akil also repeatedly used homophobic slurs.

However, while Akil may have stepped down from his $120,000 a year job as the Mayor's chief of staff, he will stay on the city's payroll as a systems analyst with the health department, making about $85,000 a year.

Mayor Fulop was not available for comment on Akil's resignation, but previously he was quick to defend his staffer after his comments were originally made public.

“…As the grandson of holocaust survivors myself they are offensive, however, I also know people change and grow over time and the comments made 20 years ago is not consistent nor reflective of the person I have known for the last 10 years,” Mayor Fulop said weeks ago.

Bristol Palin describes birthday brawl on police recording

October 22nd, 2014
Matthew McKenna says he has a video of a brawl at his birthday party that involved Sarah Palin's family.

He refuses to share it, however.

McKenna blamed the fight on people being 'drunk and stupid.'

However, in an audio police recording Bristol Palin is heard giving her account of the story.


Bristol Palin describes being dragged through the grass and called a series of obscenities during a massive brawl last month in recordings of Anchorage police interviews that CNN obtained through a public records request.

She said she jumped into a fight after "some old lady" pushed her sister, Willow Palin, because "oh f---in' hell no, no one's gonna touch my sister."

When she tried to find the woman, though, she said a man who others identified as Korey Klingenmeyer, the owner of the house where the party took place, knocked her down.

"A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet in my dress -- in my thong dress in front of everybody -- (and says) 'Come on you c---, get the f--- out of here. Come on you s---, get the f--- out of here," she said.

No charges were filed as a result of the September brawl.

Other people interviewed by police described the Palins as instigators in a brawl that also reportedly included Track Palin and his father, Todd, fighting several men.

They said Bristol Palin punched Klingenmeyer several times before he restrained her.

Klingenmeyer said he'd approached Todd Palin to say that "your daughter's out of line" and that he should get the situation under control. That didn't happen.

"I told 'em all to get the hell out of here and go home," he said.

He said the altercation with Bristol Palin started after she insisted she was going to beat another woman up.

"I said 'this is my house, we're not having this,'" Klingenmeyer said. "She freakin' goes, 'I'll kick your a--.'"

He said Bristol Palin punched him several times, and then he grabbed her fist, made a motion that isn't described verbally, and then she "fell down."

Sarah Palin can apparently be heard in the background during some of the interviews. At one point, she complained that her children were being "made to feel like the bad guys."

Michelle Obama, “folks like us”.

Quote:

Speaking to the cheering crowd of more than 2,000 in Minneapolis, the first lady said voters need to re-elect Democrats such as Dayton and Franken to continue on that path. She said Republicans are counting on diminished turnout of young and minority voters — like in the 2010 midterms that were disastrous for Democrats — to take back the Senate and governor’s offices.
“People were shocked when Barack won because they were counting on folks like us to stay home,” Mrs. Obama said. “It’s up to us to get out and vote. Only we can prove them wrong.”

Football in America — How We (Don’t) Talk About Race

October 22nd, 2014
Football in America -- How We (Don't) Talk About RaceÂ*|Â*Rick Ayers

Quote:

The football scandals have not played out. They may just be heating up. What fascinates and dismays me is the way we talk about race in America through sports chatter. We are a society that is deathly afraid of having race conversations seriously and straight-up so we suppress and filter them through metaphorical moments -- the OJ trial, the Donald Sterling dreck, the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson crimes.
There is an interesting truth about cultural production: theater (and film) involves constructed people (fictional characters) doing real things (acting out a drama); while sports involves real people (being themselves) doing constructed things (playing a game according to rules). There is excitement in either case. As with the Greeks before us, as with the Mayans, as with all cultures, these cultural productions were and are ways to discuss and work out questions and issues of the society. It is one big Kabuki play, carefully choreographed and endlessly fascinating.
When sports figures do something egregious, though it is no more egregious than actions that are happening all over the country every day, it becomes an occasion for hand-wringing and public discussion, at least indirect discussion. There are some excellent bloggers who are forwarding the domestic violence and child abuse reflections, from Gloria Ladson-Billings to Dave Zirin. Yes, blame the NFL. Yes, blame us all. But I think the moment calls for us to consider some more fundamental cultural framing of sports. What I particularly want to focus on is how I think many white people in the US regard African-American men in sport.
Let's be clear: America was founded on stolen land and built with stolen black labor. The reality of slavery is inscribed into the very center of our identity. And the violence of this history is not over. It is ongoing in the police actions such as we saw in Ferguson; it is present in hunger and poverty and atrocious health disparities based on race; it is evident in our schools and our prisons. White supremacist ideology goes back to the beginning, here expressed by Shakespeare in The Tempest, as the island boss Prospero describes his captive Caliban as a slave, a semi-devil, a monster, but also reminds his daughter that, "we cannot miss him; he does make our fire, fetch in our wood, and serves in offices that profit us."
Black labor was key to white profit. And so was fear of black strength, sexuality, and aggression. From The Tempest to Birth of a Nation, from lynchings to school closings and suspension rates, white America felt it had to control and repress the perceived savage, the dangerous and frightening black male body. Indeed, George Zimmerman's impulse to shoot a black teenager who appeared to be walking in a neighborhood where he didn't "belong" is just a graphic expression of this fear. White violence is always justified by a fear of black violence -- or even fear of one day facing black retribution.
But then we have football. What is so curious here is that the very thing white America fears, the very thing that leads us to lock up a record number of black men, the very nightmare that lurks in our subconscious -- the strong, aggressive black man -- is put on the football field for our entertainment. The powerful message to African-American men about what they may not do -- to act out, to be aggressive, to transgress -- is lavishly rewarded inside of arena.
The Romans compelled their captives to fight to the death in coliseums for the pleasure of the ruling class. Understand it: those whose means of violence against the Roman state had been seized had to act out a deadly spectacle clashing with one another. To the death. We gather each Sunday to cheer and bark and howl at another violent spectacle. A huge number of white men in America act out their male egos by posturing and drinking and throwing things at the football stadium or in front of the TV.
And yet these African-American men, offered diminished pathways to success and given dreams of a career in the NFL, are idolized and feared. They are handled very carefully by the (white) men who are making billions off of the game. And it starts well before the pros. You see this process in college and even in high school and younger.
Jessica Luther writes about the ways universities profit from football while covering up sexual and other crimes. And then the fans shake their heads, express pious outrage, when that training bleeds off of the football field.
The football players will play their role for us, they will entertain us even if they die of head injuries that result from the staged violence. But we blame them. And let ourselves off scot-free.

White guy kills cop during no-knock raid… found to be self-defense… Mother Jones gets all mopey.

Two SWAT Raids. Two Officers Dead. One Defendant Is Black, One White. Guess What Happened. | Mother Jones

Quote:

One Friday last May, the sun had not yet risen when a SWAT team ignited a flash-bang grenade outside Marvin Guy's apartment in Killeen, Texas. Officers were trying to climb in through a window when Guy, who had a criminal record and was suspected of possessing cocaine, opened fire. Four officers were hit; one of them was killed.
Five months earlier, 100 miles away, a SWAT officer was shot during a predawn no-knock raid on another house. In that case, too, police threw a flash-bang grenade and tried to enter the residence. Henry "Hank" Magee, according to his attorney, grabbed his gun to protect himself and his pregnant girlfriend. "As soon as the door was kicked in, he shot at the people coming through the door," says his attorney, Dick DeGuerin. With his legally owned semi-automatic .308 rifle, Magee killed one of the officers.
The cases are remarkably similar, except for one thing: Guy is black, Magee white. And while Magee was found to have acted in self-defense, prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Guy. He remains in jail while he awaits trial.

Historically, police serving warrants were required to knock on a door, announce their presence, and wait for an answer. But in SWAT raids, this is often no longer the case. Police aren't required to announce themselves if they believe the circumstances present a threat of physical violence, or if they believe evidence would be destroyed. According to a study by the American Civil Liberties Union, no-knock warrants are used in around 60 percent of drug searches.
Like Guy, Magee was initially charged with capital murder, which is punishable by death. But before Magee's trial, a grand jury found there was not enough evidence for him to stand trial on that charge. "In essence it was a ruling in self-defense," DeGuerin said. Guy has been through the grand jury process as well, his attorney said, but in his case, the grand jury allowed prosecutors to move ahead with capital murder charges. So while Magee awaits trial for felony possession of marijuana, Guy awaits potential execution.
Both defendants had previous encounters with the law: Magee had been arrested twice for driving while intoxicated and twice for possessing marijuana. Guy had previous charges of bank robbery, theft, burglary, and "felony in possession of a firearm," and had done time in prison. Guy's arrests warrant shows that police suspected him of possessing cocaine after receiving a tip from an informant who said he was selling. The search of his apartment turned up an "orange glass pipe," but no drugs. Magee, however, did have drugs—"more than 4 oz but less than 5 lbs" of marijuana, according to the district attorney.
When SWAT teams were created, they were not intended for drug raids. They were set up in the late 1960s for extreme scenarios like active shooters and hostage situations. Yet 85 percent of SWAT deployments today are for "choice-driven raids on people's private residences," Peter Kraska, an Eastern Kentucky University researcher who studies tactical policing, testified in a recent Senate hearing. The ACLU study found that 62 percent of SWAT deployments today are for doing drug raids. The study also found that in around half of SWAT deployments for drug offenses, no contraband is found at all.
The study also showed that 71 percent of today's SWAT raids affect people of color, even though white people are more likely to be involved in the types of scenarios SWAT teams were created for, like active shooter and hostage situations.
Magee was found to have acted in self-defense by shooting at unannounced intruders before dawn. Whether the same standard will apply to Guy remains to be seen. His trial is scheduled for next June.

Salon Warns Of ‘White Menaces To Society’

October 22nd, 2014
Salon Warns Of 'White Menaces To Society' | The Daily Caller

Quote:

Liberal news outlet Salon has done it again, with a piece warning readers of “white menaces to society,” and in particular, their “license to kill.”
Rutgers Professor Brittany Cooper argues this in her most recent piece, “White menaces to society: Keene State and the danger of young drunk white men.” The professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies was last seen claiming the crimes of half-Asian Elliot Rodgers were the result of “white guy killer syndrome“.
After a recent drunken riot at a pumpkin festival attended by students at Keene State University, Cooper got to the real problem leading to the riot: all those white people. “These violent white college kids were so unruly that the police had to come in riot gear and bring out tear gas, to quell the riots. One white female student reported feeling very unsafe. Why are these white kids so mad that they are terrorizing residents and destroying property? Should we be concerned about the fact that they seemed to really enjoy it? Is that sociopathic?”
“…How does it feel to be white? Does it feel like freedom? Freedom to piss on people and property with impunity? Freedom to burn **** up and live to tell about it? Freedom to threaten old people and wake up the next morning and chalk it up to drunkenness? License to kill?” she continued.
The fact that white people are free to riot will no doubt come as a surprise to the more than 80 people who have been arrested in the course of the Keene police investigation.
