    Only black reporters allowed in Georgia mayoral race event



    SAVANNAH, Ga. | Race was front and center on Wednesday night during a meeting coordinated to garner support for just one black candidate in Savannah’s mayoral election.

    With signs stating “Black press only” on the doors of the church where the meeting was held, white reporters were barred from entry, while black reporters for at least two television stations were permitted inside.

    The event was coordinated by the Rev. Clarence Teddy Williams, owner of the consulting firm, The Trigon Group, who declined to discuss the entry policy.

    Former Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson declined to comment before going inside, as did Chatham County Commissioner Chester Ellis.

    “This is not my idea,” Ellis said.

    Savannah Alderman Estella Shabazz, who also attended, said that she had once owned a newspaper and she was a member of the black press, but she declined to comment on the policy barring white reporters from going inside.

    While notes were allowed, photos, video and audio recordings were prohibited during the event, according to Stephen Moody, an African-American reporter with WJCL, who was allowed entry. Another reporter from WSAV who attended the meeting was told she could stay because she was black, Moody said.

    Shirley James, the African-American publisher of the black-owned Savannah Tribune, was also seen going into the meeting.

    Savannah Alderman Van Johnson, who is one of three African-Americans who have stated their intention to run for mayor, said afterwards that during the meeting he had talked about his vision for an inclusive and progressive Savannah. With regards to the discriminatory policy at the door, Johnson said he believed people have the right to assemble and determine the rules of their assembly.

    “It’s not my meeting,” Johnson said. “I was asked to come and give a statement, so I came and I gave a statement. What I said in there, I’ll say out here.”

    Louis Wilson, who said he is going to run for mayor again after an unsuccessful run in 2015, also spoke during the meeting about his priorities. Afterwards, Wilson also declined to discuss the press restriction.

    “I didn’t plan the meeting so I can’t comment on that part,” he said. “I came to say what I had to say.”

    Former state senator and representative Regina Thomas, who has announced her own campaign, did not attend the meeting. In an interview earlier this week, Thomas said she believes she can win, even if there is another black candidate.

    “I’m encouraged every day by people of all persuasions,” Thomas said.

    Meeting attendees were given a handout reporting the ethnic composition of Savannah’s population, as well as a vote breakdown for the 2015 election, when incumbent Jackson was defeated in a run-off by current Mayor Eddie DeLoach.

    Also distributed was an editorial in the black-owned Savannah Herald titled “United We Win, Divided We Lose” that was written by former Mayor Otis Johnson. In the piece, Johnson called on the black population to organize itself to increase its influence over what happens in the community, starting with the mayor and council.

    “If we come together and decide what we want and who we believe will work best for us to get it, then we have a chance to advance,” he said.

    Reparations Shakedown

    Indicting white Americans for "America’s original sin.”

    April 8, 2019
    David Horowitz
    120


    In 2008, the election of Barack Obama was universally hailed as an historic breakthrough event - the first African American presidency in American history. Great expectations were raised for what was then billed as the beginning of a new “post-racial era.” A decade later these expectations have not been fulfilled, and – worse – have been frustrated by the spread of “identity politics” – the most tribalistic, color - conscious and divisive attitude to dominate the public square since the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965 outlawed discrimination on the basis of skin color.

    An early sign of trouble in the new racial paradise was Obama’s designation of Al Sharpton - the nation’s second most notorious racial demagogue - as his “chief adviser” on race. As racial tensions in the nation’s streets intensified, this designation was fleshed out by over 80 Sharpton visits to the Oval Office, by far more than anyone else’s. It was further reflected in the White House’s embrace of extremist groups like Black Lives Matter and in the not-so-subtle White House covers for violent attacks on local law enforcement.

    With Obama’s exit from office in 2016, the fury and violence of Ferguson and other beleaguered cities have faded, but the spirit of racial division remains and flourishes in the menu of Democratic demands. It was most recently manifest in a new Democratic ritual as the 2020 roster of Democratic presidential hopefuls has made a pilgrimage to Sharpton’s National Action Network conference to kiss the kingmaker’s ring and sign on to his list of outrageous demands. Most prominent among these is reparations for slavery to be paid by people who were never slave owners to people who were never slaves, 154 years after the fact.

    The reparations demand is pure racism: Recipients will be paid on the basis of their skin color even if, like Kamala Harris, their ancestors were actually slave owners. It will be paid by people who had no historical connection whatsoever to slavery, and it will be paid by the very government that sacrificed 350,000 mainly white (and Christian) lives to abolish slavery and lead the world in doing so.

    The real agenda of the reparations movement is clear. It is to indict white Americans for what Cory Booker and other leftist demagogues call “America’s original sin.” It is part of the Left’s assault on the Christian founders of America – an assault justified by a completely bogus version of history. Black Africans were not enslaved by white Christians. They were bought at slave auctions in Ghana and Benin where they had already been enslaved by Black Africans. It was the Christian crusader William Wilberforce who – for the first time in 3,000 years - declared slavery immoral and launched a campaign to end it. It was another white Christian, Thomas Jefferson (whose statue is a current target of leftwing ignoramuses, who wrote into America’s birth certificate that all men are created equal and have a God-given right to liberty. Within fifteen years of the Declaration most of the northern states had freed their slaves. It took less than a generation to complete the process, but at the horrendous cost of 350,000 Union lives.

    The reparations campaign is a campaign to bury the fact that white Americans freed Black slaves who were originally put in chains by Black Africans and Muslims, and that the white Christian males who created this country are responsible for ending slavery and creating the most inclusive, tolerant and equal society on earth. It is a campaign to make Americans ashamed of their country, so that its enemies can more easily destroy it. Americans whose forbears declared their independence in 1776 and created a new nation conceived in liberty can be proud of their record on slavery. It’s demagogues like Sharpton and Harris and every other 2020 presidential hopeful in the Democratic Party who should rightfully be ashamed.

    Democrats Call for ‘Counter-Insurgency’ Against Whiteness

    Gregory Hood
    American Renaissance
    April 12, 2019

    Congressional hearings were a day of infamy.

    Democrats want a “counter-insurgency” against white advocacy. Republicans want to prove they aren’t racist. White nationalists are a serious threat to this country—and they mustn’t be allowed to speak for themselves.

    These were the messages from this week’s chilling hearings on “white nationalism” in the House of Representatives. The propaganda was crude, and the statistics from the ADL were embarrassingly deceitful.

    Corporate media made statements more outrageous than those from Democrats. “How pro-Trump Republicans became white nationalist apologists—and Hitler revisionists,” said Haaretz on Twitter, promoting an article accusing the GOP of “worshiping” fascism. Newsweek gave birth to this fantastic headline: “Donald Trump Jr. praises Candace Owens [of Turning Point USA] for her defense of Hitler comments.”

    Congressman Tom McClintock was alone in making a principled defense of the First Amendment. He condemned the effort “to set up government or corporate officials to decide what speech is acceptable and what is not.” Otherwise, congressmen, tech executives, and most witnesses took it for granted that big business and the government must restrict speech, allegedly to prevent violence. Congressmen David Cicilline, Joe Neguse, Jamie Raskin, and Congresswoman Karen Bass all cited the Anti-Defamation League’s phony statistics to justify censorship. Not one Republican disputed them.

    Others cited a dubious “rise in hate crimes.” Candace Owens was the only witness to point out this is a fluke of changed data-gathering. Elizabeth Nolan Brown at Reason has made the same case.

    The hearings were not about “data” or history. They were about blame. Several witnesses and congressmen said the president was partially responsible for the rise of white nationalism because he won’t condemn it. Yet one of the witnesses read out loud Donald Trump’s uncompromising condemnation of neo-Nazism: He said “they should be condemned totally.” The Democrats ignored it.

    Eva Paterson of the Equal Justice Society was among those who repeated the lie that the president will not condemn white nationalism. She also said he called Mexicans rapists, which is not true. She claimed Donald Trump had “recently called asylum seekers animals.” She was referring to a viral tweet that made this claim. The president was talking about MS-13, not asylum seekers.

    Miss Paterson also called for a “joint law enforcement-civilian task force” and “an organized counter-insurgency strategy” against white nationalism. Her claim that there are no “lone wolves” and that there is instead “an organized white nationalist group around the world that is being connected” is like Cold War talk about a “monolithic Communist conspiracy.”

    The sole definition of “white nationalism” came from Eileen Hershenov, who called it “one of the many euphemisms for white supremacy.” The “core ideology” is “fear of the imminent genocide of the white race,” supposedly because of mass immigration and orchestrated by Jews. Miss Hershenov obviously intended to suggest that any opposition to mass immigration is “white nationalist” and “white supremacist.” Still, it’s interesting that even according to a hostile source, “white nationalism” isn’t about ruling or hurting other people, but resisting dispossession.


    Eileen Hershenov

    The focus on emotion rather than data was typified by including as a witness Dr. Muhammad Abu-Salha, the father of two Muslim women killed by a white man, Craig Hicks. Dr. Abu-Salha’s loss was terrible; several women representatives began crying when they questioned him.

    However, it’s unknown whether Mr. Hicks acted on race or religion at all. He was reportedly infuriated by a long-standing parking dispute. The ADL did not even mention the case in its 2015 “Murder and Extremism Report.”

    If brutal murders that cross racial lines are reason for congressional hearings, whites have been on the receiving end for decades. Anti-white statements from journalists, academics, and politicians as well as insulting portrayals in the media certainly contributed to some of these killings.

    The murderer of Brittney Watts said he did it to “spread the message of making white people mend,” and is just one of countless examples. Yet there will be no hearings on anti-white messages in the media or universities, nor about open incitement to violence against whites on the internet . No Democrat congresswomen will cry for the cameras over the victims. Instead, to cite black columnist Leonard Pitts’s response to the “Knoxville Horror” murders, all we get is “cry me a river.”

    Testimony over the FBI’s investigation of “black identity extremism” also reflects a double standard. This term was in a leaked FBI report to describe black groups that appear to be targeting police. Witness Kristen Clarke argued the movement is “not a real threat.” “It harkens back to the dark days of our federal government abusing its power to go after civil rights activists during the heyday of the civil rights movement,” she said.

    This is ironic, coming from someone who, along with many others, called for censorship, surveillance, and repression against dissidents.

    Representative Karen Bass, without naming him, alluded to Rakem Balogun (legal name Christopher Daniels), a supposed “black identity extremist” and political organizer who was arrested by the police on gun charges. Despite (or perhaps because of) extreme Facebook comments, such as mocking murdered police officers, Mr. Balogun has gotten largely positive press. There are sympathetic portrayals in The Guardian, New York Magazine, and Vice, among others. Mr. Balogun may indeed have been targeted for his political views.

    However, many of those defending him are urging even more harsh treatment for white advocates. Vice wrote a story cheering when Facebook and other social media companies banned Faith Goldy, but Facebook still has a support page for Mr. Balogun.

    Miss Goldy was specifically condemned by several congressmen. David Cicilline complained Facebook did not act quickly enough to remove her and demanded details on “proactive steps” the company could use to “identify leaders like Faith Goldy and preemptively remove them.” In response, Neil Potts of Facebook assured Congress that “there’ll be no praise, support or representation of her on our platform going forward.” She is to be a non-person, apparently. Congresswoman Madeleine Dean also complained about Faith Goldy and expressed her “disappointment” that Facebook was so slow to act.



    Congressman Hank Johnson, who supported a black ethnostate in college, said “many white nationalists have used misinformation propaganda to radicalize social media users. . . .

    How is YouTube working to stop the spread of far-right conspiracies intent on skewing users’ conception of fact and fiction?” Alexandria Walen of Google/YouTube replied that for content “on the borderline,” certain features are removed and it can’t be recommended to users (this frequently happens to AmRen videos). Thus, the world’s dominant media corporation admits it is deliberately suppressing certain political messages. Hank Johnson even complained that there is no way to prevent people someone from using the messaging service “WhatApp” to spread “hate speech.”

    With the notable exception of Congressman McClintock, the Republicans at the hearing were cowards. They repeatedly tried to change the subject and complain about Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s alleged anti-Semitism. Otherwise, they joined in the hysteria over “white nationalism.”

    Republican Congressman Don Collins thanked the chairman “for the opportunity for us to once again condemn white nationalism” and cited his party’s sanctions against Congressman Steve King. “American values share nothing ideologically with white nationalism,” he added. Eva Paterson of the Equal Justice Society refuted this in her opening statement, when she claimed the “Founding Fathers knowingly and consciously embraced slavery and white supremacy,” though she did not address Congressman Collins directly.

    Republican Congressman Guy Reschenthaler boasted that the first time he ever spoke on the floor of the House was “to condemn white nationalism and white supremacy,” something of which he was “very proud.” He also bragged that the Republican Party stripped Steve King of all committee seats. Democrat Val Demings replied that “it took them [Republicans] over a decade to take any action against one of their own who had a reputation of making disparaging remarks.”

    During the height of the McCarthy era, Communists could speak for themselves before Congress. “White nationalists” had no voice. Black conservative Candace Owens, who repeatedly accused the Democrats of exploiting blacks, was the closest thing whites got. Based on phony statistics, half-truths, and outright lies, elected officials in a supposedly free country openly demanded the use of corporate power to censor ideas.

    This was a show trial against the entire concept of white identity. If such a hearing were held in Russia or China, Americans would call it a farce to justify persecuting an unwanted group. This is what we face today in our own country. This was a day of shame—not for white advocates, but for Congress and for America.

    Candace Owens at White Nationalism Hearing: Biggest Scandal Is Democrats Keeping Minorities ‘Perpetual Victims’

    PENNY STARR



    Candace Owens, the communications director with Turning Point USA, said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday that the topic of the hearings — white nationalism — wasn’t the true issue and that the biggest scandal is the Democrat Party’s fear-mongering to “brown people” and keeping minorities “perpetual victims.”

    Owens, who said in her opening remarks that she is a Democrat who supports President Donald Trump, said Democrat policies have harmed blacks.

    “The biggest scandal in American politics is that Democrats have been conning minorities into believing we are perpetual victims all but ensuring our failure,” Owens said.

    Owens also said the hearing was more about the 2020 election than white nationalism, which she pointed out was much worse in the United States than during the lifetime of her grandfather, who was with her at the hearing.

    “He grew up in an America where words like racism and white nationalism held real meaning under the Democrats Jim Crow laws,” Owens said.

    “The hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate crimes,” Owens said. “It’s about fear mongering, power and control.”

    “It’s a preview of the Democrats’ 2020 strategy,” Owens said.

    “Reparations and white nationalism,” Owens said. “That is the Democrats’ preview.”

    Later in her remarks, Owens said she has suffered continuous mocking and hatred from Democrats because she is a conservative, including many calling her the N-word and “Uncle Tom.”

    She said she came to her conservatism by studying history without the filter Democrats have put on racism in the United States, including the Party’s opposition to ending slavery and its involvement in the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacy.

    The committee, led now by the Democrat majority, wrote about the hearing on its website:
    This hearing will examine hate crimes, the impact white nationalist groups have on American communities and the spread of white identity ideology,” the committee’s website states. “The hearing will also foster ideas about what social media companies can do to stem white nationalist propaganda and hate speech online.”

    Communities of color and religious minorities have long been subject to discrimination and have been targeted by groups who affiliate with ideologies of hate,” the website states. “White identity groups have a long history of oppressing racial and religious minorities and promote individual expressions of violence with the aim of preserving white racial and political hegemony.”
