Three People Arrested After Confederate Monument Protests Get Explosive

Published

on

A protest over a Confederate monument at UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus turned violent after an hour or so of peaceful protesting from both those in favor and against having the monument removed.

Police were forced to deploy pepper spray as the crowds got rowdier and rowdier, eventually leading to the arrests of three individuals.

“It was unclear which side the cops used it on, and also why exactly the pepper spray was used,” the College Fix reports. “Attempts afterward to confirm why the pepper spray was used and who it was used on were unsuccessful as two officers both told The College Fix they didn’t know and offered no further comment.”

The News & Observer posted a video of police trying to keep order that reportedly shows the “police wielding pepper spray” (warning: graphic language):

Here’s a video clip of the shenanigans unfolding in real time:

Chapel Hill police released the following statement about the incident:

Among the chants from the group protesting the monument that can be heard on the Campus Fix video are “No Cops, No KKK, No Fascist USA,” “Who Do You Protect? Who Do You Serve?,” “Cops and Klan Go Hand In Hand,” and “F*** Your Flag,” in response to the pro-Conferedacy group’s Confederate flag.

The protest against “Silent Sam” was actually toppled two weeks ago as police were told to stand down and more or less just let it happen. The demonstration was actually advertised as a “dance party and speakout.”

Obviously it was a lot more than that.

It’s become quite clear over the last several years that liberals are growing increasingly more physically hostile, caring little about anyone’s safety. They want to force their agenda on others, and anyone who won’t go along with things gets a beat down. It’s thug politics.

Let’s hope these young folks wake up to reality and stop pulling this crazy crap before more folks end up seriously injured or worse.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

on

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
