This is why we can't have nice things:Portand Rose Parade canceled amidst threats of ANTIFA violence

This shit is getting out of hand.

It's only a matter of time before someone is killed.

Portland rose parade canceled after ‘antifascists’ threaten GOP marchers

For 10 years, the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association has kicked off the city of Portland’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade meant to attract crowds to its diverse neighborhood.

Set to march in the parade’s 67th spot this year was the Multnomah County Republican Party, a fact that so outraged two self-described antifascist groups in the deep blue Oregon city that they pledged to protest and disrupt the April 29 event.

Then came an anonymous and ominous email, according to parade organizers, that instructed them to cancel the GOP group’s registration — or else.

“You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely,” the anonymous email said, referring to the violent riots that hit Portland after the 2016 presidential election, reported the Oregonian. “This is nonnegotiable.”

The email said that 200 people would “rush into the parade” and “drag and push” those marching with the Republican Party

Where were the police during the Berkeley riot?

https://twitter.com/shane_bauer/status/853369990757572609/video/1

There are dozens of videos posted of the event. How many instances can you find of the
cops conducting any meaningful and effective actions to break up the fights or disperse people...
even when the ANTIFA people were throwing M-80's, rocks and debris into the crowd?

For that matter, what plans did they have to even keep the two groups separated from
one another?

Seriously... temporary safety/snow fencing and plastic posts that could be knocked over by
a fart, that's your plan?

Shit storm brewing in Berkeley tomorrow

This will not end well for either side...


DEFEND THE BAY! BLOC PARTY & COOKOUT

The "Alt-Right" is coming back to Berkeley...

But we will gladly escort them back out! Let's come together to enjoy music, food, speakers, and each other's company while we drown out the embarrassing attempts of racists and nationalists to display their hate-fueled support for Trump. Let's fill MLK park with our resilient bodies before these bigots can even show their faces, prevent their rally, and send the message that we aren't down with the hate — all while enjoying dope beats and delicious BBQ. ??
We gonna cook the fash out of Berkeley!

WHAT TO BRING:
#1 YOUR CREW ?? - Do not come alone! It is crucial to bring your friends so that you can have each other's backs if something were to go down. Even though our goal is to shut down the pro-Trump rally before it can even happen, there is a pattern of fascists and Trump supporters coming armed to rallies and attacking anti-racists, especially targetting Black, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming people.*

#2 A MASK?? - Masking up or otherwise concealing your identity helps protect you from the alt-right and the state. There is a risk of the alt-right doxxing individuals for the purposes of online harassment campaigns which can lead to off-line consequences. You also want to assure the state does not identify you so they cannot target you for repression later on. Consider bringing an extra mask in case someone else might need one!

#3 FOOD (if you can)?? - Bring food to share if you can, but no worries if you can't!

*In the last year, emboldened by Trump's hate campaign, we have seen an intense rise in white supremacist activity and targetted attacks. From burning Black churches to vandalizing Mosques, there is no limit to how low these bigots will stoop. And we have seen the horrors they commit when confronted in the streets. From the shooting of a GDC member in Seattle at a Milo Yiannopoulos protest to the 7 people (almost all of whom were Black or Trans) stabbed by neo-nazis on June 26th, 2016 at the state's capital — Trump supporters and the far-right aren't hesitant to commit heinous acts of violence. After all, they have the support of the white-supremacist State and the badged goons! So while we're out there enjoying ourselves, let's remember to be careful, keep our eyes peeled and have each other's backs.

Berkeley fears repeat of violence at planned pro-Trump rally

The Berkeley farmers’ market has been open for business every Saturday for 30 years, save the time gale-force winds shut it down. But it will be closed Saturday, as organizers fear the fallout from a second pro-President Trump rally in as many months near the market’s home.

The people who run the Ecology Center Farmers’ Market next to Civic Center Park decided this week not to set up their stalls Saturday because of concerns of more violence from the rally, which is set to start at noon in the park near Berkeley City Hall, said Martin Bourque, the market’s executive director.

The closure was the clearest sign of concern among businesses and residents about a rally being organized by a loose collective of far-right groups. One of them, Oath Keepers, which says it will provide security, has been categorized as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Is Bill Maher defending pedophilia here?

Or, can only men be pedophiles?

Mary Kay Letourneau, the teacher from Seattle, who is in jail, because she is in love. That's how I view it. I admit that it's unorthodox, she's 35, the boy is 14. He was younger when they started. But the big story this week...



Have I?



...OK. But she is pregnant again. That was the story this week. This is the second child by this boy, so, basically, they are having a family, and they are keeping the mother in jail, because she won't conform to what society feels should be the perfect American family.



How can a woman rape a man?





I'm completely defending not the woman only, but the boy, as well.



Oh, I would have been able to take care of her. So it's better than she's in jail?



In most of societies in human history, 14-year-olds were fathers.



Define love? If we could, we would have. But we can't. It's something that happens between two people. And these are the two people.

"Trash Dove" a new racist, alt-right symbol?

Are people really falling for this?






First it was Pepe, now this. I honestly had never even or heard of this latest meme until a few days ago (I don't
have a FaceBook or Twitter account, so maybe that's why I'm late to the party).


A purple dove has been flooding Facebook feeds, here is what it means

IF YOU are one who enjoys reading the comments on Facebook posts, chances are you have come across a headbanging purple bird.

The meaning of the purple bird is very confusing with the meme going from innocent sticker to a right-wing symbol used by fascists and Neo-Nazis.

Originating from Florida artist and Adobe creative resident Syd Weller, the “Trash Dove” is part of a sticker set featuring a large-eyed purple pigeon in various situations — most notably the bird vigorously thrashing its head up and down.

The sticker suddenly went viral after being featured alongside a dancing cat on a Facebook page with millions of follower

But now the symbol has moved past light trolling and is considered to be an alt-right meme used to spread neo-Nazi propaganda.

A campaign dubbed “Operation Nazi Bird” from 4chan’s /pol/ message board — the epicentre of far-right extremist activity — was responsible for the shift.

The campaign called for the alt-right to use the bird to clog up the comment section of prominent leftist Facebook pages.

Users are also being encouraged to start photoshopping Trash Dove into images of Nazi propaganda, with users quick to comply.

Maybe I was wrong...

What if Trump were to be found genuinely mentally unstable?

By that I mean clinically diagnosed by doctors and/or mental health professionals?

I know some will claim 'what makes you think he isn't currently mentally unstable?'

I'm thinking more like a complete nervous breakdown, partial or full blown Alzheimers, odd, eccentric Howard Hughs type behavior, etc.

Impeachment only allows for "Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High crimes and Misdemeanors".

Is there any mechanism or procedure to have him removed from office?
