The discussions began with a conference call in July, followed by a closed-door meeting last month inside the mayor’s office. CNBC reports that Black Lives Matter activists claimed Buttigieg “brushed off their concerns about police violence in the city he has led since 2012.”

“He seemed to have already taken a side,” said Dr. Melina Abdullah, lead organizer with Black Lives Matter’s Los Angeles chapter, who participated in the phone conversation. “It did seem that he was prioritizing who he thought was important, and it didn’t seem to be black people.”

“I remember he felt very rushed, as if he wanted to check it off a box as something that he did,” Abdullah told CNBC.

According to the outlet, Buttigieg’s presidential campaign would not comment on the talks “and denied repeated requests to make the candidate available for an interview.”

Reports from CNBC say the meeting between Buttigieg and BLM folks each lasted roughly thirty minutes in length, were absolutely intended to be kept private, and had not been reported about previously.

Ever since the June death of Eric Logan, a 54-year-old black man shot and killed by Sgt. Ryan O’Neill, a white South Bend police officer, Buttigieg’s relationships with local law enforcement and the black community have both deteriorated.

The claim is that O’Neill acted in self-defense, as authorities have stated that Logan was approaching O’Neill with a knife. The body cam for the police officer was not activated before the incident took place.

Buttigieg has recently hired a black management director to help undo some of the damage he’s done to his relationship with this very important demographic, which is much needed, seeing as he’s only polling at 2 percent with registered black voters.

Virginia Democrats Take A Step Back From Gun Control Plan After Receiving Major Backlash From Gun Owners

Published

Democrats in the state of Virginia have discovered that a great many folks who make up their constituency are supporters of the Second Amendment right to bear arms after they received massive backlash from gun owners after unveiling their gun control plan. Now, in light of the all the criticism, Democrats in the state have decided to take a step back from the proposal. Check out the details from TheBlaze: Democrats will assume control of the Virginia General Assembly next year, and lawmakers quickly began submitting gun control bills that previously had little-to-no chance of passage. Gun-rights advocates statewide responded by forming “sanctuary” counties in which enforcement of new gun control laws would be de-emphasized or neglected altogether. Monday, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said they were adding a “grandfather clause” into the proposed assault weapon ban, which would allow gun owners to keep weapons under the policy that were already legally owned — as long as they register them. “I’m not going to lock up a large part of Virginia,” Saslaw told the Virginia Mercury, acknowledging that a grandfather clause would “make sense.” Gun-rights activists in Virginia are not letting their guard down after what seems like a victory, being well aware of the fact that the left will keep pushing for further restrictions on the Second Amendment. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said, “We’ve been down this compromise road and their version of a compromise is they never give up anything. We are expected to give up something every time and we’re not doing it anymore. I think gun owners are tired of this and they’re gonna stand up and fight this stuff.”

President Trump Set To Create New Executive Order To Protect Jews On College Campuses

President Trump has decided to take action against the rampant anti-Semitism that is rising up on college campuses across the country by signing an executive order designed to protect Jews on college campuses. The order will redefine Jews as more than a religious class, making them a nationality or ethnic group according to a new report that has been published by the Washington Post. Here are more details from TheBlaze: The updated classification will have a significant impact, allowing the government to consider anti-Semitic discrimination a violation of the Civil Rights Act. Specifically, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and national origin. “There’s been a lot of unclarity surrounding the application of Title VI to Jewishness, basically, because of a question of about whether Jewishness is primarily a religion — in which case Title VI would not apply to anti-Semitic discrimination — or whether it’s a race or national origin. This EO will clarify that Title VI applies to anti-Semitism,” an administration official told reporters Tuesday, according to the Post. The New York Times reported that Trump decided to take action because Congress has long stalled bipartisan legislation meant to combat the problem. “Today’s executive order will have a real, positive impact in protecting Jewish college students from anti-Semitism,” Republican Jewish Coalition national chairman Norm Coleman told the Washington Free Beacon. The Post went on to report that the executive order mandates that the Department of Education use the definition of anti-Semitism created by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. That particular definition includes a bit that calls out folks who consider the existence of a State of Israel to be a racist endeavor, something that critics of the executive order have said will stifle the free speech of Palestinian activists who might desire…
