Black Lives Matter activist ABUSES construction workers protesting in Melbourne

Melbourne protesters question why counter-terror police weren’t deployed last year during the Black Lives Matter protests.

I asked an indigenous woman berating the crowd, who answered, “because this is Aboriginal land, alright c**nt”.

However, an Aboriginal man in the crowd disagreed, saying, “the country itself is all of our land. It’s not just one of us. It’s all of us. It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white Asian. We’re all Australians.”

He says he didn’t join BLM protests because it was “a bit of stupidity there”. However, he’s fighting for construction workers because they are “essential”.

“Tradies lives are bloody essential to us. If not for them; we wouldn’t have these buildings, the roads, we wouldn’t even have our houses”, he added.

Melbourne protests continue.

Nicki Minaj ‘anti-vax’ saga proves COVID jab refusal isn’t ‘black and white’

(LifeSiteNews) — Pop culture icon Nicki Minaj made international headlines last week when she posted a comment to Twitter encouraging fans not to be “bullied” into getting a COVID shot.

The 38-year-old Trinidad-born rapper urged followers to “pray on it” and “make sure you’re comfortable” with the decision to take or refuse the experimental drug. For herself, Minaj said she was doing her own research before she decided whether to get the jab.

The obviously “irresponsible” comments advocating personal autonomy and due diligence set off a firestorm of frenzied media attention.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid expressed the views of many in the mainstream press when she slammed Minaj for her tweet in a now-viral segment. During her diatribe, Reid trotted out old accusations that Minaj and others who question the shots are killing people by encouraging them to make their own medical decisions.

Never one to pass up using the race card, Reid added that she was “so sad” that a woman of color would steer people in “our community” away from getting the shot, and jeered when Minaj retweeted a clip of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson (a far-right “white supremacist,” of course) backing the pop star’s message.

Minaj refused to back down, defending herself for standing on the same side as Carlson on at least this one issue, while throwing the race card back at Reid.

But the primary takeaway from the Nicki Minaj dust-up is not so much what Minaj said, or the spicy back-and-forths traded with Reid via Twitter.

The real story is that the media and the political establishment have once again shown their hand.

The point is that in today’s culture, race is just a stand-in for politics, and vaccine acceptance versus refusal is not “black and white.”

It’s not about race, it’s about ideology

In going after Minaj for recommending that people make their own decisions about whether or not to get the COVID jab, the establishment media proved once again that the culture war has nothing to do with race and everything to do with ideology.

Social media was abuzz with the Nicki Minaj story throughout all of last week, with conservatives quick to point out the seeming hypocrisy of the leftist media.

After all, Reid and other corporate media pundits would normally fawn over the political opinions of a mixed-race female rap-star. Popular culture and racial politics are firmly entrenched territory for the left.

But instead, Reid attacked Minaj for daring to express an opinion contrary to the prevailing leftist narrative on COVID that requires everyone, regardless of risk factors, age, or natural immunity, to “get vaccinated,” with no questions asked.

Unknowingly, Reid stirred up a hornet’s nest.

As it turns out, Minaj, whose Instagram account boasts 1.57 million followers, is not the stereotypical “anti-vaxxer” that talking heads in the political and media establishment love to hate.

And she’s not alone.

CNN, MSNBC, and the corporate media as a whole take delight in pigeon-holing those opposed to their mass vaccination strategy as uniformly white, Christian, Trump-supporting rural Americans.

These are the “deplorables,” to quote Hillary Clinton; they, who so foolishly resist government intrusion into every aspect of their private lives, are “stupid” and should be “shunned,” CNN’s Don Lemon tells us.

Unfortunately for the establishment, it’s not nearly so simple.

By percentage, black Americans continue to be less likely to get the jab than white Americans. But you don’t hear CNN saying that black Americans are “stupid” or advocating that they be ostracized from society.

Regardless of race, politics, or socioeconomic bracket, many Americans feel that everyone should be able to make up their own minds about the medical procedures they do or do not undergo, and should not be subjected to public shaming for it.

It’s an American value that is widely shared among racial and economic groups, but not, incidentally, by members of the ruling class.

‘The black face of white supremacy’

While the left extols race as a defining characteristic of one’s personhood, a slew of recent examples have made clear that race is only important if it exists in conjunction with political ideology.

To have the “wrong” political perspective is to lose even one’s racial identity.

Thus a black man, who rose from poverty in South Central Los Angeles to prominence and acclaim as an influential political commentator and broadcaster, is attacked by the corporate media as “the black face of white supremacy” when he chooses to run as the Republican candidate for California governor.

Larry Elder’s skin color and success story ought to have made him the darling of the left, if people of color attaining power is really what they care about.

But the Los Angeles Times’ ridiculous headline proves the point once again that the culture war has nothing to do with race and everything to do with ideology.

As Joe Biden so articulately pointed out during his basement campaign last year, “If you have a problem figuring out who you’re voting for, you ain’t black.”

For the left, it seems blackness is not so much a skin color as a status bestowed upon those black Americans who fall in line with the prevailing agenda.

Blacks who espouse conservative values are manifestly not “black,” because they refuse to identify as victims who can only be helped by the benevolent oligarchic political establishment that alone can grant them power.

And indeed, to align with the ideologies of the left is to hold political power, often paradoxically through the claim of victimhood.

Contrary to the ravings of the L.A. Times, Elder is obviously not a white supremacist. But he does seem to believe in the supremacy of the American values of free markets, free speech, and freedom of religion. 

Elder ran on a ticket that promoted the view that being free to make one’s own personal medical decisions is superior to being forced by government and business entities to muzzle oneself in public and inject an experimental concoction into one’s body.

But as the Nicki Minaj story indicates, the left’s stranglehold on specific demographic groups may be starting to weaken.

As the ideology falters, the left is losing its grip on institutional power

The Nicki Minaj saga, together with the bitter smackdown of Larry Elder in his bid for the governorship of California, reveals what happens when the prevailing ideological narrative is interrupted, and proves that race and celebrity are only ever significant factors when it is politically convenient for the establishment.

That’s why the race-baiting corporate media was forced to disavow Elder, an obvious success story, for his politics.

Meanwhile, left-wing media, which has long made use of its death grip on Hollywood and the entertainment industry to cudgel Americans into some of its most pernicious sexual and political ideologies, have been put on the back foot with the Nicki Minaj story, forced to decry the “troubling intersection of entertainment and politics,” at least where the pop star is concerned.

The flare-up and ensuing Twitter war between Reid and Minaj was not an isolated incident, and signals that the leftist establishment is increasingly out of touch with its own base.

The leftist establishment, attempting to strong-arm its traditional voter block of minority Americans to align themselves with all of its pet projects and ambitions, is losing support as it pursues its manic no-holds-barred totalitarian scheme to vaccinate 100% of the country and apparently the world.

In the wake of increasing vaccine mandates, Biden’s already cratering approval ratings have nosedived, suffering a 12-point drop among black voters this month fueled by a 17-point drop among unvaccinated black voters.

It turns out that many Americans of all races and backgrounds share a common value: making their own decisions about their personal health, and maintaining a very rational distrust of government intrusion.

It may be that black Americans are beginning to push back against the radical bureaucrats who decry “systemic racism” while insisting that the government has the right to control the movements and bodily autonomy of black people.

The awakening of people like Minaj, whose fan base is undoubtedly diverse and likely not overly conservative, is bad news for Democrats. But what is bad news for the left is good news for everyone interested in freedom and a return to a rational and representative system of government.

While the establishment has amassed more power than arguably ever before using the excuse of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are emerging indicators that it is actually beginning to lose its grip.

Holding onto the fraying ends of a badly woven narrative of systemic racism, public health, and climate change, the ruling class has lost the plot in increasingly transparent ways.

And as the power structures of the system erode, old partnerships are also beginning to collapse.

Converging interests have made for some uncomfortable developments for the left

In New York City this week, members of the local Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter, a radical leftist organization committed to abolishing the nuclear family and toppling capitalism, is now protesting the city’s vaccine passport scheme, arguing (rightfully) that it disproportionately affects black New Yorkers.

It’s a notable development, as BLM has been ideologically aligned with the same political left that has treated vaccination as a sacrament of the secular public health religion and pushed for increasing mandates throughout the country.

“Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated,” said Chivona Newsome, an organizer with Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, during a protest at a New York Italian restaurant, where several women became involved in a physical altercation over showing proof of vaccination earlier this week.

“So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?” Newsome wanted to know.

“We’re putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social distance practice,” the BLM leader said. “Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat. That is a promise. The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism.”

Meanwhile, on the continent of Australia, which since March 2020 has evidently gone back to its historical roots and become a prison colony again, contractors protesting the harsh and totalitarian lockdown policies were accused of being “white supremacists” and “neo-Nazis” for fighting the liberty-crushing COVID protocols supported and implemented by leftist elites.

Live footage of the event, however, showed a diverse crowd, giving the lie to the media narrative that only one political ideology or racial group opposes the notion of living in what Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has called a “biomedical security state.”

‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction’

Minaj and Elder, diverse working-class Australians, and even the Black Lives Matter protesters fighting the vaccine passport scheme in New York prove that the west is not enduring a “racial reckoning,” as we were told after the death of George Floyd last year, but an ideological reckoning.

People of all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds are being forced to take sides on fundamental beliefs and values, not immutable biological characteristics.

We must choose either to get involved in the political process and make our voices heard to defend freedom and self-government, or else put on our masks, take our shots, and submit to the oligarchy of unelected bureaucrats that is overtaking the democracies of the west at breakneck speed.

Nowhere is this more necessary than in the United States, the proverbial City on the Hill.

As observed by many who have fled communist oppression in their home countries to seek freedom in the United States, if America falls, where else is there to go?

Former President Ronald Reagan said it best in a 1987 speech, observing that “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

“We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream,” Reagan said. “It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.”

In an admonition never more appropriate than it is today, Reagan warned that if we fail to defend our freedom, we may be consigned to “spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Black America Is ‘Being Stabbed in the Back’ by Joe Biden

Controversial left-wing activist the Rev. Al Sharpton has joined a chorus of people from across the political spectrum who are decrying President Joe Biden over broken campaign promises and chaotic policy.

Facing multiple crises both foreign and domestic, Biden is entrenched against conservative and independent Americans who perhaps hoped his calls for unity following the 2020 election would bring the country together.

Instead of pursuing unity, Biden has catered to the far left of his party as the country has faced destabilization at home and abroad. Aside from the border crisis, the country left Afghanistan last month with the stinging feeling of defeat.

In addition to those crises, prices for basic commodities are up for Americans of all stripes.

Biden is also facing hurdles with Democrats in Congress over the price of a $3.5 trillion spending proposal and he spent part of Friday threatening his country’s own border patrol agents:

Trump’s Surgeon General Says He Tried to Refinance His Mortgage, But Biden Admin Pulled a Dirty Move to Stop It from Happening

If Biden was under the impression he still had the blind support of every loyal Democratic black voter, Sharpton on Thursday let it be known publicly that they, too, intend to hold the president to account.

Do you think Biden will finish his term?

Sharpton actually accused Biden of double-crossing minority voters who supported him last November in large numbers.

“[Biden] said on election night: Black America, you had my back, I’ll have yours,” Sharpton told The Washington Post on Thursday . “Well, we’re being stabbed in the back, Mr. President. We need you to stop the stabbing — from Haiti to Harlem.”

Sharpton, who visited the epicenter of a humanitarian crisis in Del Rio, Texas, on Thursday to call for an end to deportations of Haitian migrants, told the Post Biden could rectify his betrayal of black America by offering those Haitians residency.

The Post reported Sharpton said Biden faces a “defining moment,” and still has the opportunity to “rise to the occasion.”

Biden Issues Haunting Threat to Border Agents Who Defended Border on Horseback: ‘Those People Will Pay’

That, Sharpton said, or the president could turn the knife and let down “those that helped you get there.”

Sharpton actually took to social media Thursday to unleash on the Biden administration to his 666,000 Twitter followers in a message directed at the Department of Homeland Security.

“The treatment of Haitians in Texas is unacceptable and a moral outrage,” Sharpton wrote. “DHS must meet immediately. This must be stopped!!!”

The controversial political figure spoke briefly in Del Rio on Thursday, but his remarks — at least at one point — were drowned out by hecklers.

Sharpton and those hecklers do share some overlapping anger.

Biden, during the 2020 campaign, was accused of taking black votes for granted, and at times appeared as though he thought he was entitled to them.

Sharpton appears to have something in common with a majority of the country right now, according to polling: He has a bone to pick with the White House.

This Fall Black Theater Takes New York City

As in-person theater stages a careful but eager re-entrance following eighteen months of lockdown, the season seems pretty diverse. There are buzzy imports from London (The Lehmann Trilogy, Six); a gender-flipped revival of a Broadway classic (Company); and a splashy new musical about a global icon (Diana). But what about real diversity? Black-authored shows about Black subjects that could bring in new audiences? This season delivers. We’re highlighting a few works opening on Broadway and Off this fall — all different — but each exploring inequity and structural racism in American society and theater. (It’s not even a complete list for this fall; there’s the already opened Pass Over, as well as Chicken and Biscuits and Clyde’s.) The shows are listed in order of the year the story is set. As a movement Black Lives Matter may have arisen in recent years, but the theatrical conversation around systemic racism has been going on much longer.

Trouble in Mind at the American Airlines Theatre (Oct 29–Jan 9)

Originally performed Off Broadway in 1955, actor and playwright Alice Childress’ exposé of racism in theater finally arrives on Broadway. Set in the mid-’50s, this backstage drama centers on a group of actors rehearsing a new play by a white writer about sharecroppers in the South. Veteran performer Wiletta Mayer (the incandescent LaChanze) is excited to finally make her Broadway debut, but how much dignity will she surrender to an overbearing white director and the acting conventions of the stage? Produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company and directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, the play was way ahead of its times in charting micro-aggressions in the theater world, and the hypocrisies of white liberals. 

Caroline, or Change Roundabout Theatre Company

Caroline, or Change at Studio 54 (Oct 8-Jan 9) 

While the creative team behind this 2003 musical — book writer Tony Kushner and composer Jeanine Tesori — are white, this groundbreaking work deserves a place on this list. Set in 1963 right around the time of JFK’s assassination, the story follows a Black maid in Louisiana who works for a Jewish family that has relocated from the north. Caroline (the acclaimed Sharon D. Clarke in this revival) develops a wry, maternal-like bond with Noah, the Gellmans’ eight-year-old son, until money found in dirty clothes bound for washing — the “change” of the title — tears them apart. A sung-through work of intense beauty and complexity, the piece shows a strong Black woman who is not a cardboard saint or avenging angel; she’s angry and tired but won’t let the world’s injustice warp her soul. Tesori embraces blues, R&B, and art song — it’s one of the best scores of the past 20 years. Set at the height of the Civil Rights Era (a vandalized Confederate statue figures in), Caroline is heartbreaking and a call to allyship. 

Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 at Signature Theatre Company (Oct 12–Nov 14)  

The title alone may give you a clue as to the subject: the L.A. riots that followed the not guilty verdict in the trial of cops who savagely beat Rodney King. To create this fast-moving panorama of the five days of looting, burning, shooting, and its aftermath, Smith spoke to 350 residents of the Los Angeles area. She impersonated about four dozen of them — with astonishing precision and accuracy — in her solo docudrama, which premiered in 1994 at the Public Theater. Now Smith remounts her iconic exploration with director Taibi Magar for an ensemble cast of five actors: Elena Hurst, Wesley T. Jones, Francis Jue, Karl Kenzler, and Tiffany Rachelle Stewart. If you weren’t around in the ’90s to witness the riots, just imagine what might have happened in Minneapolis had the murder of George Floyd gone unpunished. 

Cullud Wattah at the Public Theater (Nov 2–Dec 5) 

The year is 2016 and the tap water in Flint, Michigan is undrinkable. The electrifying young playwright Erika Dickerson-Despenza sets her “Afro-surrealist” drama 936 days into the Flint Water Crisis, as an embattled family seeks justice from both General Motors and the city government, fighting for their very survival. BLM is often cited in cases of police violence, but here, Dickerson-Despenza dramatizes a social travesty where the white power structure (and infrastructure) literally acted as if Black lives were worthless. (In 2017, a Michigan Civil Rights Commission report concluded that decades of systemic racism allowed the lead contamination of the water.) Using a fluid and poetic approach, the author blends ideas of poison, contamination and filtering.  

Playwright Erika Dickerson-Despenza Erika Dickerson-Despenza

Thoughts of a Colored Man at the John Golden Theatre (opens Oct 31) 

After regional runs in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. two years ago, this new play — written by Keenan Scott II and directed by Steve H. Broadnax III — takes its Broadway bow. Thoughts, set on a single day in Brooklyn, lets us eavesdrop on the inner lives of seven Black men mulling over joys and sorrows, as well as their gentrifying community. Scott employs a range of rhetorical styles suited to each character — spoken word, slam poetry, rapping — creating a kind of Under Milk Wood for BK. In the allegorical conception of the piece, characters represent major human traits: Wisdom, Depression, Passion and so forth. (In case you’re worried this world has too much testosterone, there are two women in the cast!)

What to Send Up When It Goes Down at Playwrights Horizons (Sept 24–Oct 17) 

We could put a date on this cathartic piece written by Aleshea Harris and directed by Whitney White — if Black people weren’t being shot every day by police. A fusion of ritual, protest, exorcism, and funeral rite, What to Send Up When It Goes Down has been presented before, most recently this summer at BAM, but until there’s justice, it will exist in past, present, and future. A seven-member ensemble welcomes the audience and makes clear the event they’re about to share is for the healing and reflection of Black audiences. White spectators are welcome — as witnesses to a tragedy in which they are complicit. Playwrights Horizons presents this re-mount of the interactive work, updated with the pictures and names of victims of racist violence.

Former Louisiana Cop Charged After Beating Black Man With Flashlight

A former Louisiana State Police officer was charged after beating a black man with a flashlight 18 times, the Associated Press reported on Friday.

Jacob Brown, 31, was indicted by a grand jury for beating Aaron Larry Bowman, 46, who sustained a gash to his head, broken ribs and a broken jaw after the 2019 traffic stop, according to the Associated Press. Brown was charged on one count of deprivation of rights under color of law, a civil rights violation.

Brown “engaged in excessive and unjustifiable actions and failed to report the use of force to his supervisors,” State Police Spokesperson Capt. Nick Manale said, the AP reported.

“Any instance of unjustifiable use of force jeopardizes public safety and is a danger to our communities,” Manale said, according to the AP. “These actions are inexcusable and have no place in professional public safety services.”

Bowman was forcibly removed from his car by deputies before Brown arrived on the scene, the AP reported. Brown said he hit Bowman 18 times in 24 seconds for “pain compliance” to place him in handcuffs after he allegedly hit a deputy.

Body camera footage doesn’t show Bowman hitting anyone, and he denied the accusation, according to the AP. Bowman faces charges including the traffic violation, battery of a police officer and resisting an officer. (RELATED: Panel Investigates Police Unit For Potentially Targeting Black Drivers In Violent Arrests: Report)

Brown failed to report his use of force and mislabeled his body camera footage of the incident, the AP reported. The department didn’t look into the incident until Bowman filed a lawsuit over a year later.

Federal prosecutors are investigating other Louisiana State Police officials who hit and stunned another black man, Ronald Greene, who died in police custody in 2019, the AP reported. The AP obtained body camera footage of both incidents that occurred within 20 miles and three weeks of each other.

Louisiana State Police officers and their supervisors disregarded and attempted to hide evidence of police abuse, according to the AP.

“The department has previously acknowledged that it has open and ongoing criminal investigations into incidents involving the Louisiana State Police that resulted in death or bodily injury to arrestees,” the Department of Justice said in a statement, the AP reported. “Those investigations remain ongoing.”

Police arrest black university employee for racist graffiti featuring N-word, swastika on school building

Authorities have arrested a black former Emory University employee after he was accused of writing the N-word and drawing swastikas on the exterior of the university’s autism center in August.

The university in Atlanta, Georgia, is said to have repeatedly dodged questions about the former employee’s race in the weeks following the incident.

What are the details?

Emory University’s Police Department arrested former part-time employee Roy Lee Gordon and charged him with second-degree burglary in connection to an Aug. 9 incident.

In a news release, officials noted that Gordon is reportedly the same person who allegedly wrote the N-word and drew swastikas at the Emory Autism Center.

According to a report from the College Fix, Emory officials knew the man’s identity since early August, but did not inform the campus community of his race.

“Asked for a mugshot and information on what Gordon is accused of stealing, and what his possible motivation was for allegedly committing these acts, Emory spokesperson Gana Ahn told The College Fix on Thursday that, ‘Unfortunately, we are unable to share any additional details beyond what is in the statement,'” the outlet reported.

“Emory is unable to share personnel information and can’t speculate his intentions,” Ahn told the College Fix in the statement.

On Wednesday, Emory announced that it continues to condemn “acts of racism and antisemitism.”

In a report, Edwin Gonzalez, one of the officers who responded to the Aug. 9 incident, wrote, “Upon my arrival, I met with REDACTED, the campus groups supervisor. REDACTED informed me that the glass door to the rear entrance of the facility was shattered. REDACTED believed that the door was damaged over the weekend. REDACTED also told me that the cleaning crew had access to the building over the weekend.”

According to the report, an unnamed university staffer “inspected the second and third floors of the facility and discovered that the building had been vandalized, with swastikas and the (N) word written in the hallways and office space near room 324.”

“The vending machines on the second floor near room 215 were also vandalized,” the report continued. “I continued canvassing the building and discovered additional graffiti and swastikas throughout the property near rooms 220, 329, 318, 308 and 304. … I took photos of the graffiti and other damage and attached them to this report. I did not see any sign of forced entry into the offices. I did not see any fingerprints or burglar tool marks.”

The College Fix report concluded, “The arrest warrant for Gordon was issued August 20. The vast majority of arrest warrants include a suspect’s race, but officials refused to provide The College Fix a copy of this public document. Because of this, The College Fix first raised the possibility that the incident was indeed a hate-crime hoax on August 2.”

What else?

Emory Police Chief Cheryl D. Elliott in a statement told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “This case was a priority for our entire department, including our security systems team. I’m proud of the work from the team and our law enforcement partners to recognize the sensitivity of this case to our community and bring a resolution.”

In a statement, university leaders told WAGA-TV, “These acts of racism and antisemitism are painful for all of us at the EAC and in the Emory community. They will not be tolerated and every effort will be made to bring the perpetrators to justice. Our priority remains the wellbeing and safety of our faculty, staff, learners, patients and their families, and upholding our values and Emory’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Black Lives Matter leader promises ‘uprising’ against ‘racist’ vaccine mandates

A Black Lives Matter leader is railing against New York vaccine mandates and has promised an “uprising” against mandatory vaccinations and vaccine passports.

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio (D) signed a vaccine mandate order on Aug. 17, requiring everyone over the age of 12 to present proof that they are vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to enter indoor restaurants, bars, nightclubs, gyms, movie theaters, concert venues, museums, and event spaces.

According to the New York City Department of Health, only 38% of black New Yorkers are vaccinated, compared to 49% of whites, 51% of Hispanics, 76% of Asians, and 78% of Native Americans.

Hawk Newsome, the co-founder and chairman of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, argues that the vaccine mandates are racist.

“I think, in a perfect world, [vaccine requirements] should be business by business. But it could be a slippery slope, so the mandate should be removed completely,” Newsome told the Washington Examiner. “It’s not gonna be white men in suits on Wall Street who are gonna get stopped. There’s such hypocrisy in this thing.”

“It’s black people who have a natural distrust of the vaccine,” Newsome said, citing the Tuskeegee Syphilis Study.

“We are not anti-vaxxers. Some of us are vaccinated,” Newsome said of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York. “It’s an individual’s choice. No one should be forced to put something in their body.”

Newsome, a Baptist, is especially bothered that the vaccine mandates do not allow for religious exemptions.

“How dare they remove religious exemptions? It’s the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen,” Newsome said. “Now the government has decided your God doesn’t matter? I love God.”

“It fits a narrative to say crazy Trumpsters are the only ones who don’t want to take the vaccine,” Newsome said of the media coverage of those who are vaccine-hesitant.

Newsome said he wasn’t aligning with conservatives who are against vaccine mandates because he says the GOP is built on the oppression of black people. But he also said he is wary of liberals.

“I’m a follower of Malcolm X,” Newsome said. “Malcolm X didn’t trust the Republicans, but he also didn’t trust the Democrats.”

Newsome told the New York Times that restaurants “are using vaccine mandates to enforce their racist beliefs and excluding black patrons.” He was referring to an incident at Carmine’s restaurant in New York City, where three black women from Texas got into a physical altercation with the staff at the Italian restaurant over COVID-19 vaccination cards.

The women allege that a hostess – an Asian woman – used a racial slur, but no proof has been presented yet. Security video shows one of the women attack the restaurant employee.

“Three women brutally attacked our hostess without provocation, got arrested and charged for their misconduct, and then, over the last several days, had their lawyer falsely and grossly misrepresent their acts of wanton violence in a cynical attempt to try to excuse the inexcusable,” Jeffrey Bank, the owner of Carmine’s, said.

Black Lives Matter of Greater New York organized a protest outside of Carmine’s on Monday, where they chanted, “Carmine’s is racist!”

“Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated,” Newsome said during the BLM protest. “So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?”

Chivona Newsome, a fellow co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, was much more militant about the vaccine passports. She threatened an “uprising” to the likes seen across the country following the George Floyd murder.

“We’re putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social distance practice,” Chivona Newsome declared at the protest. “Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat. That is a promise.”

“The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism,” she proclaimed.

Kimberly Bernard, the co-founder of the Black Women’s March, also slammed the Democratic mayor and governor for the vaccine passports.

“We are serving notice on the mayor, on the governor, on the restaurant industry that we will not allow for you to use this pandemic, vaccination cards, and masks as another reason to be racist, to put us in prison — because there’s enough of us in there,” Bernard said.

FDA Official Advocates for Nazi-Style Registration and Blow Darting of Unvaccinated Black Americans – RedState

On Tuesday, Project Veritas dropped an undercover video featuring an HHS nurse recording her fellow staff expressing doubt about the COVID-19 vaccines and how it may be affecting people even more negatively than the virus.

(READ: Bombshell Project Veritas Video Shows Medical Expert Saying the Vaccine Is “Full of S**t”)

On Wednesday evening, the undercover organization released another video, this time showing an FDA official advocating repeatedly to blowdart the unvaccinated, including those who refuse to get the vaccine in the African-American community. He also expressed his wish to create a registration very similar to Nazi Germany’s registration of Jewish people, even acknowledging its similarities.

Taylor Lee, the FDA official in question, works as an economist within the administration. Lee believes we should treat the vaccine like the census and that officials should go door to door to find those under the unvaccinated registry and force them to be stabbed with needles.

“Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond,” said Lee. “So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations]. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money. But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany.”

“Nazi Germany…I mean, think about it like the Jewish Star [for unvaccinated Americans],” he added.

In the video, Lee lists off a number of leftist fantasies, such as herding all the unvaccinated into Texas and allowing the rest of the country to deal with the pandemic.

The biggest admission from Lee isn’t his personal biases and bigotry against those he disagrees with, but Lee also claims that the FDA is staffed “scientific advisors” that are really just political appointees.

“There are political appointees [at the FDA] that are generally scientific advisors or are appointed by the president or the commission…They’re being paid based on if the other people are staying in power,” he said.

“Unfortunately, everyone ends up playing politics, but I don’t think that the career scientists are — I think that it’s the people that they’re unfortunately having to report to because these political appointees are being put in place and that’s part of like — the Senate confirms the people to then just pick their people.”

Firstly, it’s upsetting that we have people like Lee who are fine with Nazi-style governing working within our government. More importantly, this may cause people to question whether or not the FDA is pushing through vaccines on well-researched and methodical study or just doing so because the politicians who appointed them wanted them to do so in order to check off agenda milestones.

Based on what we saw in the last Project Veritas video, it would appear that the potential side effects of the vaccine are going unreported and questions are hanging in the air about it. This will likely cause people to question the recent FDA approval of the vaccine, especially given the swiftness through which it was approved.

POLL: Biden’s Approval Among Black Voters Dips After Vaccine Mandate

President Joe Biden’s approval rating among black voters is on the decline after he implemented a vaccine mandate for private companies, according to a new Morning Consult poll released Wednesday.

Among those polled, 71% of black voters approve of Biden’s job performance overall, a five point decrease since he mandated the vaccine. His disapproval rating jumped seven points to 24%, the poll found.

When broken down among those who are and aren’t vaccinated, however, Biden’s approval rating among unvaccinated black voters dropped 17 points when compared with before the rollout. (RELATED: Former FDA Chief Says Biden Went Too Far With Vaccine Mandate And Made Jabs ‘Overtly Political’)

The president also lost nine points since August amongst those polled when looking at approval ratings for his handling of the coronavirus, which now sits at 61% according to the poll.

The poll was conducted between Sep. 18-20 among 1,000 black voters with a +/- three point margin of error. Among those who were unvaccinated, the margin of error was +/- four points.

Biden announced in early September his administration was developing a rule requiring employers with 100 or more employees to either force their employees to be vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. The requirement is set to affect more than 80 million workers in the private sector and violating the rule could land employers thousands in fines.

Whites make up 60% of Americans who are fully vaccinated. Black Americans make up 10% of those who are fully vaccinated, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The data was gathered from 182,387,840 fully vaccinated individuals. Race/ethnicity was available for approximately 116,000,000 fully vaccinated Americans.

Some cities, such as New York City, are requiring individuals provide proof of vaccination to eat indoors and partake in indoor activities. A group of Black Lives Matter members held a protest outside a popular New York City restaurant Monday after three black women allegedly assaulted a hostess who asked for proof of vaccination. The protesters claimed the vaccine passports disproportionately affect black people.
