Memphis Activists Attempt To Dig Up Confederate General's Grave

Memphis activists target Confederate monuments after failed attempt to dig up general’s grave

Social justice warriors in Memphis, Tennessee are staging a rally to pressure city officials into removing Confederate statues in the community, the latest stunt aimed at snubbing out the region’s forefathers.

Organizers for the group that calls itself “Take Em Down 901” are advertising the protest at Bruce Elementary School on Bellevue Boulevard for 6 p.m. Tuesday “to discuss action steps to remove Confederate statues in Memphis,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
The group is led by Tami Sawyer, “a political leader, speaker, writer & activist for Social Justice and Educational Equity.”
Sawyer told WMC last week that she’s leading a boycott of the city’s famed 4th Bluff Park until the city removes statue of Jefferson Davis, and her group is urging the public to avoid scheduled summer events like “Downtown Yoga in the Park” and an art show until they get their way.
“Having the statutes (sic) is another thing that says black people don’t matter in Memphis,” she said.
The meeting on Tuesday is centered on promoting the boycott, though even those who support the cause don’t seem to think it’s the brightest idea.
“It has to be something more than just boycotting the parks because not everyone is going to follow that,” Memphis resident Neely Jones said. “As beautifully as the statue is decorated. I’m an artist and can appreciate that, it’s still standing for something that the entire country said we are not having it.”
The organized boycott comes after many of the same activists took it upon themselves to attempt to dig up the grave of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest last summer.
“We are going to bring the back hoe, the tractors and the men with the equipment to raise Bedford Forrest from the soil of Memphis,” Isaac Richmond, a failed congressional candidate and head of the “Commission on Religion and Racism” told awaiting TV crews as he shoved chunks of grass and soil from Forrest’s grave site.
Richmond told CBS 3 that digging up Forrest, who died 138 years ago, would fix the city’s alleged problems with racism.
“If he’s gone, some of this racism and race-hate might be gone,” Richmond said, shovel in hand. “We got a fresh shovel full, and we hope that everybody else will follow suit and dig him up.”
They didn’t.
Instead, the city’s social justice warriors pressured the city council into voting to remove Forrest’s body somewhere more to their liking.
The city council also voted last year to remove Forrest’s statue in Health Sciences Park, though the move was blocked by the Tennessee Historical Commission, which must give approval to locals to remove monuments erected to honor military figures.
The city has not pursued efforts to remove the Jefferson Davis statue, according to WMC.
And while Sawyer, Richmond and their supporters are plotting further actions to press the issue, the Sons of Confederate Veterans are defending the honor of their ancestors and calling out the “historical terrorists” for the attempts to erase history.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans issued a statement to WMC that states Memphis “does not need to become the laughing stock of the country again as has the city of New Orleans,” which is also embroiled in a controversy surrounding Confederate symbols in the city.

“Those who tear down historic monuments are no better than Nazis or ISIS,” the statement read. “They are historical terrorists. The TearDownMemphis or TakeEmDown group bears the same characteristics.

“Our historical monuments, especially including the two largest Confederate monuments, are a tribute to those honored city residents of our nation’s past. They certainly do not signify white supremacy or anything of the sort. Both Jefferson Davis and N.B. Forrest are veterans of the United States military and of the Confederate States.”

The group also vowed to take actions of their own if the city’s social justice crusaders continue to push the issue.

“The Sons of Confederate Veterans vehemently opposes the removal or destruction of any memorial, monument or grave site and will stand against such actions, including to the extent of taking legal action,” the statement read.

Black Lives Matter Vows to Destroy the “Nuclear Family”

In favor of communitarian ‘collective care’

August 29, 2016 620 Comments

http://www.infowars.com/black-lives-matter-vows-to-destroy-the-nuclear-family/

“We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable,” states BlackLivesMatter.com on its “guiding principles” page.

The notion of collective communities being responsible for children and not parents is an idea that has been pushed by the leftist establishment before, most notably during a piece for MSNBC by Melissa Harris-Perry in which she said the notion that kids belonging to their parents was outdated.

The pledge once again serves as a reminder that the BLM movement – funded by billionaire white elitist George Soros – is a Marxist front to sabotage western values

Instead of encouraging strong parenting in the black community, which has been ravaged by the scourge of single parent households and illegitimacy, BLM is telling them that the traditional nuclear family is a bad thing and that they should relinquish control of their children.

Diminishing the power held by parents to bring up their own children as they see fit also plays into attempts by the federal government to eviscerate parental rights.

As we reported earlier this year, the feds are seeking to create a new bureaucracy that would intervene in family life and could even see state-appointed monitors conduct routine home visits to assess a child’s well-being.

The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) outlined a plan that will see families treated as “equal partners” in the raising of children, opening the door for government intrusion at all levels.

New Report: Whites Actually Way More Likely to Be Shot By Police…

When they’re not busy “peacefully” rioting… do you ever hear Black Lives Matter mention these statistics?

PragerU has an educational video for everything. In this video, they ask the question “Are cops racist?”

Or more specifically, is it common for blacks to be unfairly shot by police? Judging by most media coverage and SJW responses, you’d think so (see Chaos in Milwaukee After Police Shoot Armed Suspect. Because #BlackLivesMatter and Blue Lives Matter? Hillary Specifically SNUBS National Police Union). But as it turns out, the numbers state otherwise…

 

A recent deadly force study by Washington State University researcher Lois James found that police officers were less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white or Hispanic ones… Harvard economics professor, Roland Fryer… found that blacks were 24% less likely than whites to be shot by officers even though the suspects were armed or violent [in Houston].

When they’re not busy “peacefully” rioting… do you ever hear Black Lives Matter mention those statistics? Yeah, that’s not a thing. Just like “systemic” police racism isn’t a thing. For a group that claims to care so much about blacks (oft times exclusively), they don’t seem to care about the statistics regarding the deaths of black people…

House-shrug

See, statistics bring to light the fact that the inner cities have been destroyed by leftist policies (watch Detroit Real Time Ride-Along). Thus when it comes to hyper liberal SJWs, numbers aren’t as effective as, say, a hashtag. Don’t judge. Math is hard, you bigot.

But even if they’re ignored, the facts remain. Meanwhile, racism? Not so much.

Clearly this isn’t to say that there are no instances of racism ever. PragerU is simply pointing out the fact that blacks aren’t unfairly targeted. They make a compelling argument, considering they did actual research and stuff. I know, I know. I can already hear Shaun King’s culturally-appropriated cornrows simmering with anger. Worry not, we have even more “racist” facts below…

All Charges Dropped Against Baltimore Police in Freddie Gray Trial

VOA News

Prosecutors in the eastern U.S. state of Maryland have dropped all remaining charges against Baltimore city police officers awaiting trial in the death of Freddie Gray, bringing a high-profile case that caught national attention to an abrupt end.

Gray, an African American, suffered severe spinal cord injuries in April 2015 while handcuffed and unrestrained in the back of a police van.

His death added fuel to the Black Lives Matter movement and sparked riots in Baltimore and large protests throughout the country.

At a hearing Wednesday that was to start the trial for officer Garrett Miller, prosecutor Michael Schatzow told Judge Barry Williams the state was dropping all charges against the officers yet to go to trial.

Three of the six officers charged in the case have been acquitted.

State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said shortly after the charges were dropped that there was “a reluctance” and an “obvious bias” among some police investigators.

“We do not believe Freddie Gray killed himself,” she added, speaking in front of a mural of Gray in the neighborhood where he was arrested. “We stand by the medical examiner’s determination that Freddie Gray’s death was a homicide,” she said in the midst of shouts of support.

Gene Ryan, president of the Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police, said “Justice has been done” and added that remarks Mosby made about the police investigators were “outrageous.”

Gray’s mother, Gloria Darden, told reporters the officers were not truthful during the investigation. “I know they lied, and they killed him.”

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued a statement from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. “I recognize the emotional nature of this case. The eyes of the nation, indeed the world, have been on Baltimore for a very long time and I thank the citizens of our city for their patience during these trials.”

Prosecutors maintained Gray was illegally arrested after he fled from an officer and that the six officers failed to buckle Gray into a seat belt or call for medical help when he asked for it.  All of the officers, three white and three black, pleaded not guilty.

Mosby brought charges of second degree murder, manslaughter, reckless endangerment and assault after receiving findings from the police department’s investigation.

Although the six Baltimore police officers have been cleared of criminal charges, Baltimore’s police commissioner has asked for an internal affairs review by outside agencies that could determine whether the officers can return to street duty.

The Gray case was one in a series of high-profile deaths of African American suspects at the hands of U.S. police that renewed a national debate about excessive police force against minorities.

The Justice Department began investigating allegations of widespread abuse and unlawful arrests by Baltimore police after Gray’s death. The results of that investigation have not been disclosed.

Whites Ordered to Back of Crowd at Black DNC March

“White people to the back, black people to the front!”

The organizer of a “Black DNC Resistance March” in Philadelphia Tuesday demanded white supporters and “white media” move to back of the crowd.

“White media get to the back!” the speaker demands. “Black media come to the front!”

“Wasn’t it wrong when Rosa Parks was sent to the back for the color of her skin?” one woman can be heard saying.

The organizer then handed out signs with the names of black shooting victims to those standing in the front of the crowd.

According to NBC reporter Shaquille Brewster, the group reportedly plans to march on City Hall in protest of the Democratic Party’s failure to focus on issues facing the black community.

At one point during the rally alleged members of the media were even forced out after they were accused of being undercover FBI agents.
