” Alex Poucher, a heavily involved member of Anonymous, sat down with Frank Ancona, Imperial Wizard of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan this Sunday. The two groups- Anonymous and the KKK- have had a feud over the last month regarding how to respond to action in Ferguson. Following the release of a controversial flyer by the KKK, Anonymous members took over the KKK’s national Twitter account. While Mr Poucher and Mr Ancona did not discuss the hacking situation, they sat down and spoke to better understand each-other and mitigate some of the tension between both groups.
The conversation lasted about 20 minutes, but News2share is currently releasing these highlights as a representation of their exchange.

” Last Saturday in Gouda, Holland, the police arrested as many as 90 people, the majority of whom were protesting against “Black Pete”, part of a traditional pre-Christmas children’s street party.
We don’t normally associate a Santa Claus celebration with police arrests, so this requires a little explanation.
Black Pete (Zwarte Piet in Dutch) is a blackface character in Dutch and Belgian folklore. He is the clownish helper of St Nicholas (Sinterklaas) in delivering presents to children.
In the Netherlands, the Sinterklaas festival lasts for weeks culminating on Saint Nicholas Day, 5 December, and starting with the arrival of St Nicholas in a Dutch city by boat with hundreds of jolly Black Petes, amusing kids and giving them treats.
It’s great fun and a merry occasion for the Dutch, and considered by both children and adults as the highlight of the year.
This year it was the medieval city of Gouda that kicked off the festivities on 15 November, with the event broadcast live on Dutch national television.
Thousands of parents and children gathered in the city’s market square.
Traditionally the crowds — men, women and kids — as well as the actors portraying the Black Petes coming off the ships, are white people with their faces painted black, frizzy hair, golden earrings, large red lips and gaudy medieval costumes.
It’s this that has been for some time the subject of acrimonious attacks from self-styled “anti-racism” activists. They claim that Zwarte Piet is a racist stereotype, a throwback to the colonial era in a now diverse, multicultural Holland, a country that must be tolerant of everything except, it seems, its past, culture, traditions, and identity.
Leftist politicians have called for Black Pete to be abolished.
The criticisms have polarized the Netherlands. The overwhelming majority of the nation wants Black Pete to carry on as usual, as revealed by a poll showing that more than 90% of the Dutch reject the idea that Zwarte Piet is racist and would not change his appearance.
Over 2 million people — in a country whose total population is less than 17 million — signed a Facebook petition last year, calling for Black Pete’s appearance to remain the same.
While the Facebook page “The Dutch ‘Black Pete’ tradition is racism” has a risible number of 198 “Likes”, the Facebook page “Pietitie” in Pete’s support has 2,012,438 “Likes”. It says: “Don’t let the Netherlands’ most beautiful tradition disappear.”
The latter FB page is Holland’s most popular ever.
The Dutch say Black Pete is harmless fun, an integral part of their culture that is now under fire from outsiders. As Dutchman Marco put it: “This is how I celebrate, how my grandmother and grandfather and parents celebrated, and I don’t think it’s racist.”
Holland’s anti-immigration, anti-Islam Freedom Party, led by one of the most popular politicians in Europe, Geert Wilders, has proposed legislation that would enshrine Zwarte Piet’s black colour in law. They want to protect Pete and with him Dutch culture, threatened to be “damaged from on high”.
Belgium has a similar tradition and faces similar problems.
Self-described human rights activist Maria Hengeveld, who writes for the Africa is a Country website, claimed: “In general, attacks on Zwarte Piet are widely interpreted as attacks on (white) Dutchness and threats to (white) children’s right to jovially celebrate their ‘cultural heritage'”. She went on to point out that politicians, lawmakers and big businesses “are sensitive to public feeling” on the issue. For example, Albert Heijn, Holland’s largest supermarket chain, went back on its promise to ban Black Pete from its stores after an enormous public uproar.
Even the country’s Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who may sense a danger in displeasing his electorate, has backed Black Pete.
Attempted meddling from the UN was revoked:
The [Facebook] page, attracting over a million likes in just one day, followed a letter from the UN’s human rights body announcing an investigation and warning the Dutch that the [Black Pete] character is a “racist stereotype”. “
” When I first heard about this story on Twitter and mentioned it, I was immediately shouted down by some left side tweeters who claimed that this was a “set-up” or a “mistake” or a report which had been “debunked” already. However, I’ve yet to find a single, reputable news outlet which is backing down on it, including not only NBC News and Reuters, but Talking Points Memo. (And if anyone was going to pull the plug, it would have been the latter.)
What are we discussing? The FBI has nabbed two individuals heading for Ferguson who were allegedly engaged in straw purchases of guns, as well as explosives.
Federal law enforcement officials say two men arrested Friday, now held on gun charges, are suspected of trying to acquire pipe bombs with the intent of using them during protests in Ferguson, Missouri…
Court documents say the two men, Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis, were arrested after they made false statements while trying to buy two pistols at a sporting goods store in Hazelwood, Missouri. They currently face only the firearms charges, though officials say other charges are pending.
The story gets even more convoluted. “

” The early signs are that Loretta Lynch may share some of the same troubling views as outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, which makes it even more important that the Senate do a thorough review and vetting of her nomination by President Obama to be the new attorney general.
This is particularly true for those who understand how important the rule of law is to our constitutional system, something that Eric Holder has damaged during his tenure.
Lynch, who is the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York (which includes Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Nassau and Suffolk Counties), has made it clear that she would continue Holder’s war on election integrity.
In a speech at the Long Beach Martin Luther King Center in New York in January, Lynch claimed that efforts to improve the integrity of the election process were an attempt “to take back” what Martin Luther King, Jr. had fought for and that state legislatures were trying to “reverse” the gains made in voting. Lynch made it clear she approved of the Justice Department’s lawsuits against states such as North Carolina to stop voter ID laws and changes in early voting and same-day registration rules, saying such suits “will continue.”
In her speech, Lynch apparently did not realize the irony of standing in front of a picture of Nelson Mandela while making this false claim against voter ID laws, given that South Africa has a much stricter voter ID requirement that was supported by Mandela. Members of the Senate owe it to voters to question Lynch intensely on this issue and should be troubled at the prospects of anyone who would continue Eric Holder’s policy of going after states for trying to protect the integrity of the election process. “
Here’s an idea , how about we get an Attorney General that works for everyone and not just one race …
” Last week, an elderly African-American man was walking through a wealthy neighborhood just outside of Washington D.C when he was confronted by two African-American Washington Metro Police.
Without any reason, the officers stopped the man and began to question him. The man had allegedly expressed some dissatisfaction with how he was being singled out, and the officers then ordered him to get on the ground.
Jody Westby, a white, female attorney and CEO of a company called Global Cyber Risk LLC, witnessed the altercation while working from her home office. She immediately ran out to confront the police, and asked her housekeeper to record the developing situation. “
” The Greene County special grand jury called to examine the case of the police shooting of John Crawford III did not return an indictment in the case. The jury was in session for two days, heard the testimonies of 18 witnesses and heard and saw hours of audio and video evidence relating to the shooting of Crawford in the Beavercreek Wal-Mart.
“ They decided that the police officers, and the police officer in particular that fired the shots, was justified in doing what he did,” special prosecuting attorney Mark Piepmeier said. Piepmeier presented the evidence to the grand jury while it was seated.
The official report returned by the grand jury stated that no indictment was found in the investigation of Sean Williams, one of the officers involved in the shooting. The grand jury considered the charges of murder, reckless homicide and negligent homicide and returned no indictment in the case.
Seven or more of the nine grand jurors would have had to have been convinced that there was probable cause that a crime had occurred in relation to the incident for an indictment to have been returned. The actual vote tally of the grand jury is kept secret.”

” James Golden, better known to Rush Limbaugh’s listeners as call screener “Bo Snerdly,” sat down with Ginni Thomas for a thirty minute interview for the Daily Caller.
Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, spent the first half of the interview talking about black America and the second half talking about Golden’s experiences working for 26 years with Limbaugh.
The comments Golden made about the black community and its experience, much of it drawn from his own personal life growing up in Jamaica, Queens, NY, was incredibly interesting. And it will certainly be controversial.
Here are 5 key quotes from the interview:
- “What liberalism has done to the black communities, it’s not a monolithic community, is horrific.”
- “Most black people live their lives as conservatives; a lot of them vote liberal because that’s the way their families vote, that’s what they grew up voting. And because they believe the press hype, and by the way Republicans haven’t helped. The last batch of Republicans in DC haven’t help with the branding.” “
” One adult and six more teenagers have been arrested in connection with an attack of three people at a Kroger in Memphis, Tennessee on Saturday.
According to our affiliate, WREG, 19-year-old Raheem Richardson was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated riot. A 15-year-old was charged with aggravated riot, and acting in concert: to wit aggravated assault. Another 16-year-old was also charged with aggravated riot, and acting in concert: to wit aggravated assault. Also, a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old were also charged with aggravated riot. “
” There’s a wonderful book, A Confederacy of Dunces, the title of which refers to an epigraph from Jonathan Swift‘s essay, “Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting“: “When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.” I was reminded of it this week when the confederacy of dunces both here and in Great Britain seems to have linked arms against the genius of Western civilization and the long-suffering middle class which has for so long sustained it.
Key players in the confederacy are perpetually offended feminists who find patriarchal tyranny lurking behind every pronoun and university library stack. This week we learned to our horror that in Rotherham, England over a 16-year period 1,400 children – mostly white girls — were raped by multiple Pakistani Moslem men and they were beaten, raped, abducted, drugged, threatened into compliance, and trafficked around Northern England. Worse, the situation was widely known to the police, the city council members, and countless child welfare workers, all of whom refused to do anything to bring the miscreants to justice and stop the abuse. The story has legs and reports are already coming in of similar stories in other towns and cities in England and elsewhere in Europe.
If you searched the usual feminist websites for the story as it broke you’d not have heard of it. Why? Quite obviously because “feminists” in the US and UK are like the old line Communists’ “useful idiot” pawns, set off to do battle with make-believe opponents on the basis of lies while their allies do far worse to them. The bureaucrats in Rotherham were, we are told, afraid to act because the pervasive worldview of multiculturalism has so paralyzed their brains that they feared being called “racists” if they took action to protect the girls.
To be sure, as Ciaran, the author of the above-linked piece, notes, “multiculturalism is a Moral Autoimmune disorder”:
A month or so ago I introduced the concept of Moral Autoimmune Disorders (MAIDs), a social strategy employed by free riders to turn cooperators’ altruistic punishment defense against themselves. In short, the free riders fool the cooperators into identifying their own group or even themselves as free riders, inducing them to direct their punishments upon themselves rather than the free riders. This gives the free riders free reign to exploit the assets and resources of the cooperators.
The Rotherham rape case provides a vivid example of just how effectively a MAIDs attack can be in suppressing a population’s instincts to self defense. When the political leaders on the left created the cult of multiculturalism to secure their own political advantage, and implemented both the carrot of “diversity” and the stick of “racism” to enforce it, they cast the native population of England as the moral transgressors, and fooled the English into seeing themselves as the free riders. So strong is the instinct to punish free riders in the English population that they not only refused to protect themselves, but they punished anyone who attempted to do so. “
” This is a REAL hate crime. A white couple is innocently walking around Springfield, Missouri, which is located roughly three and a half hours from Ferguson, when suddenly they are attacked by four black thugs.
They are slammed against the wall. They are slammed on the ground. They are hit. They are kicked over and over again. And it is all caught on camera. The attack is disturbing to watch.The thugs, I cannot call them men, run off, then you see police chasing after them.
Not a word from Al Sharpton as he is back to battling it out with the teleprompter on MSNBC. Not an outcry from Eric Holder or Barack Obama that these thugs should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is utter silence as the police search for these perpetrators.”
Welcome to Obama’s “post racial” America
” A white teacher said he routinely overhears vulgar and racist comments from students at an all-black high school. I blame the black youths’ negative mindset on blacks in the civil rights exploitation business and white liberals with their stomach-turning bigotry of lowered expectations.
We see snooty, arrogant, superior intellectual-sounding white liberal pundits and hosts all over TV touting their absurd narrative that blacks have a right to be angry in racist America and must be coddled. These liberal celebs followed certain steps and behaviors to achieve success. And yet, they claim that expecting blacks to follow the same road map to success is racist. Blacks should be repulsed by this liberal narrative, which implies that we are inferior. I want to scream, “How dare you lower the bar for me? I be as smart as any white person!” Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
I have witnessed the same racist mindset in a white liberal couple who are longtime friends. They have had financial highs and lows in their efforts to run various businesses. They work hard and will take any job to pay their bills. Applying for government welfare is not on their radar. They employed horrible black employees, always making excuses for them, giving them a pass because they were black. I was amazed that they could not see the racism at the root of their low expectations, disguised as compassion.
At every turn, liberals send the message that blacks are lesser Americans. Liberals say it is hateful for conservatives/Republicans to expect blacks to speak English correctly, show an ID to vote, refrain from murdering each other, and stop dropping out of school. White liberals say asking blacks to refrain from having babies out of wedlock is culturally insensitive and imposes morality on them. Libs ignore the truth that fatherless households contribute to gang membership, black-on-black violence, and poverty. Do you see the pattern? White liberals insinuate that urban blacks are poor uncouth savages. Therefore, a 6’4” 290-pound black thug should be given a pass for robbing a convenience store, assaulting the clerk, and attacking a police officer while on his way to Grandma’s house.”
” Chris Lollie, of St. Paul, Minnesota was tased infront of his children as he went to pick them up from school on January 31. He claims he was racially profiled as all he was doing was sitting down waiting to pick up his children when he was approached by the police, seemingly for no reason.
He was charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process but all charges were dismissed on July 31.
Lollie filmed the entire encounter, but his phone was taken by the officers as evidence. After charges were dropped his phone was returned and he promptly uploaded the video of him being attacked to YouTube. “
” It’s a blog post by Prof. Nick Johnson of Fordham Law. He discusses Otis McDonald and Shaneen Allen (who faces a mandatory three year jail term for having driven into NJ with a firearm for which she had a PA permit to carry concealed).
” So another rhetorical question: Why have the nominal champions of civil rights ignored Otis McDonald and the self-defense interests of the sober, mature members of the Black community he represented?
The search for answers highlights priorities wildly out of whack. Compare the relative non-acknowledgment of Otis McDonald with the broad consternation over how Black criminals are treated. Michelle Alexander’s acclaimed book calling the state of Black incarceration the “new Jim Crow” illustrates this….
A final question, and this one is not rhetorical: Will the people who invoke the power and rhetoric of civil rights to condemn the disparate treatment of heroin and crack dealers, come to the rescue of a law-abiding Black woman whose crime was misunderstanding the multilayered bureaucracies that restrict the federally-guaranteed constitutional right to arms? “

” Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it? “
Harry Reid Just Told Asian Americans They’re Not ‘Smarter Than Anybody Else.’ He Does Stuff Like This A Lot
” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says things from time to time that are at best impolitic and at worst pretty offensive.The term for both of these things in today’s political vernacular is “gaffe.”
Such is the case again with the above remarks from Reid, made in front of the Asian Chamber of Commerce and helpfully clipped Friday by the GOP opposition research group America Rising.
” The Asian population is so productive,” Reid told the group. “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are.”
He added after his remarks that he has problems “keeping my Wongs straight.” (Rimshot.) The remarks are already being given the g-word treatment. And, yes, they are certainly questionable.
Update 12:45 p.m.: Reid has now apologized, saying in a statement: “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing.”
But Reid has also made a career out of saying such odd things — so much so that few tend to notice stuff like this. He’s like Joe Biden; he’s almost built up a gaffe immunity by committing so many small-ish gaffes.
It’s hard to argue Reid (and Biden, for that matter) doesn’t pay a price — given his unpopularity back home and nationally — but he has yet to ruin his career. Here’s a sampling of some of Reid’s greatest gaffes:
1) “Negro dialect”
2) Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in 10 years
3) The hottest senator
4) Those smelly tourists
Washington Post has more on Reid’s bid to out-gaffe “Crazy Joe” , and you can find further details on Reid and his history of stupid comments below …
” Well-heeled West Villagers will be in for a rude surprise when they open the latest copy of their local newspaper and see the headline, “The N—-r in the White House” — except without the dashes.
The shocking headline in the WestView News is a reference to President Obama and sits at the top of Page 15 above an opinion piece that criticizes what it calls the anti-black “racism” of far-right voters.”

” Mo Asumang, who’s the daughter of a black Ghanaian father and a white German mother, talks to the BBC about her new documentary The Aryans in which she peacefully confronts racists about what makes them tick.
There are some real zingers in this short piece, especially when she confronts a Ku Klux Klan member about his garb.
Filmmaker Mo Asumang embarks on a journey into the abyss of political evil and finds out that the Aryans originally come from an area which now belongs to Iran. ‘The Aryans’ is a personal journey into the madness of racism: Mo Asumang meets German neo-Nazis, America’s most notorious racist Tom Metzger and members of the Ku Klux Klan in the Midwest. When she encounters the true Aryans in Iran, she realizes that they are friendly and cosmopolitan people who lay no claims to being members of a superior race.
What I like about Mo’s interview style is her gentle approach. She’s not confrontational. It’s almost like the KKK members are ashamed or feel shameful of what they’re doing when they speak to her. That’s a unique talent!”

” MSNBC tried its hand at cultural commentary on Monday with a Cinco de Mayo segment featuring a stereotypical portrayal of a stumbling Mexican by a reporter pretending to guzzle tequila straight from the bottle.
As a visual reading “Mexican Heritage Celebration” appeared on screen, Way Too Early host Thomas Roberts explained the historical background of the holiday. As he spoke, a sombrero-clad Louis Burgdorf wandered around the newsroom shaking a maraca.
” It’s also an excuse to drink tequila on a Monday morning at work for Louis,” Roberts said, adding “you have to drink the whole thing and eat the worm.” “
