Politics: Conservatives Love Kanye West’s Repping ‘Make America Great Again’ While Wanting Taylor Swift To ‘Shush’ Again (Video)


(Click here to watch on Facebook.)

Nope. Not gonna let Taylor finish… again.

How interesting… and predictable. Talking heads on the right want famous folks to ‘shut up’ and dribble, sing or whatever… unless they dribble the rhetoric they want to hear.

How dare Kanye West say President George W. Bush does care about Black people back in the day. Oh, wait. He’s spitting some of that ‘free thinking’ Make America Great Again (MAGA)? Ahhh, he’s a refreshing right-wing converted icon now.

(Hmmm… remember wifey Kim Kardashian West was just up at the White House months ago. Let’s see how all this plays out. Gotta find five years of reality TV footage for that “Who’s House? Trump’s House!” show premiering after the 2020 elections. Ha!)

And Taylor Swift. She is out of line with the right. Speaking out of turn, so according to the right-wing pundits, it is time for her to go back to singing and stay out of politics like a good girl.

Here’s The Breakdown.

Anti-Kaepernick Car Ranter’s Argument Is Wrong… Loud And Wrong (Video)

Getting the feeling, from this clip, that Graham Allen is the guy who should sit and pose for the picture in the urban dictionary next to ‘loud and wrong.’ When your argument’s base premise is FALSE and the fallen soldier you use as anecdotal support for your argument believed the OPPOSITE of what you argue… “That’s When Ya LOST” (word to Souls Of Mischief)!

In his latest VIRAL car rant Graham Allen tries to use Pat Tillman as a counter to Colin Kaepernick. Hasan Piker explains why this shameless “patriotsploitation” is a slap in the face to Tillman’s legacy and against his family’s wishes.

All Black People Have To Do Is Comply To Survive A Police Encounter, Right? Wrong! (Video)

This is why we kneel. Point. Blank. Period. Francis nails it here. Enough with this shite already!

History/Activism: James Baldwin Called It Long Ago. But America Has Still Not Learned (Video)

Those who do not remember their history are doomed to repeat it. Only thing is, for minorities (read: Black people) in America, there is WAY more ‘doom’ at stake.

…what America still refuses to learn from history. Here are the lessons still unlearned from James Baldwin.
Francis Maxwell

We keep thinking that this Administration, this social reality, this America, is something ‘new’… but nah… Baldwin saw this in his day, over and over, and would have probably seen it all coming.

You Must Learn: What Is Democratic Socialism? (Video)

KRS said it: YOU MUST LEARN. At least for yourself, and not fall victim to others’ spin on taboo words like ‘socialism’ (because propaganda). ‘To stay on course means to ROLL WITH FORCE!’ So. Don’t come for Ana. At least not on Democratic Socialism. You will get schooled, which is good; but that slick dissing they try will fail.

Ana went on HLN and schooled a Conservative pundit on what Democratic Socialism really is.

Activism: Matthew Charles Does Decades Of Fed Time, Turns His Life Around, And Now Has Return To Prison. Meanwhile… (Video)

Damn. America’s justice system is broken. You may not need more proof, but maybe someone around you does. Press play and walk away. Get coffee or something. But stay mad, stay woke, stay engaged and stay ready.

Black Man Who Spent 20 Years In Jail & Turned His Life Around, Is Being Sent Back. Meanwhile A Child Rapist Get’s House Arrest. This Really Is America.

Speak English For What? ‘Real’ Americans Should Be Speaking Natives’ Tongues, Or Spanish (Video)

So the cops can harass you for NOT bothering anyone, just because you (NOT speaking to them) are conversing in a language they do not understand? I’m asking… And above, someone answers.

Agree or agree to disagree, no motherf**king body can motherf**king tell you what language you must use to speak to each other; or use speaking an ‘unacceptable’ language to profile you. Plus, English does not have a strong an argument for being the ‘rightful’ language of ‘real’ Americans. Watch.

I gotta admit: I am down with ‘The Breakdown’ that Francis Maxwell delivers above and how he delivered that sh!t. Straight RAW! And I think I heard some ‘French’ in his rant, too (hahaa).

TYT’s Francis Maxwell Speaks On The NFL’s Disgraceful Ban On Kneeling (Video)

… regardless, let’s just cut through the sh!te, shall we?

We got a whiff and posted on the NFL’s kneel ban days ago. Now NFL Commish Roger Goodell puts it all the way out there… No longer speculation, the ban is out there. Watch TYT’s Francis Maxwell speak on it, and make a helluva good point: The League is FULL of Black players whose interests are repped by this LAWFUL, PEACEFUL protest. Goodell and the NFL owner cadre are essentially telling them to bow down, by insisting that they either stand for the anthem or stay off the playing field until they learn to ‘act right’… or get hit in the pockets.

NFL Bans Kneeling. So Much For Free Speech, Right?

President Trump More Compassioniate Toward Pundit Tomi Lahren Than To People Victimized By School Shootings (Video)

Y’all ever check out a video or three from uber-Conservative cute-but-ugly-talking ‘girl gone viral’ Tomi Lahren. Well, she’s usually the one calling out the wrongdoers and the waah-waah crybabies on The Left (Progressives, Liberals, Democrats, folks who disagree with her views). But here she is in the ‘victim’ role… again. Charlemagne Tha God might have found cause to make a case ‘for’ her a while back, but check out The Breakdown that Hasan Piker puts on her… and The President.

Our wetboy president Donald J. Trump showed more compassion to Tomi Lahren getting water thrown at her than victims of school shootings and the waffle house hero. Hasan Piker breaks down why Conservatives who spread hate speech whine about oppression at the first sight of backlash.
– The Breakdown

Oh, and Piker points and fires off on some other hot topics, like the NFL’s stand against #TakeAKnee (we posted on here).

The Police Don’t REALLY Treat Black People Differently. Do They? (Video)

You know the answer. But to have [even more] solid evidence of such, laid out in the form of a solid argument… Sure the affirmation is depressing, but at least you know you are signifying (not just ‘theorizing’). So, here you go. Share and discuss.

Santa Fe School Shooter is armed, yet apprehended peacefully, so why can’t police exercise that self-control with Black people?

Hasan Piker Claps Back At Laura Ingram Telling Lebron James To ‘Shut Up And Dribble’ (Video)

Bwaaaahahaaa! Hasan Piker SMOKED Laura Ingram for her #ShutUpAndDribble dribble rant. Wonder if she has seen this… Might make her dribble, with her mouth wide open, leaking from the cheeks.

Laura Ingraham’s viral racist rant against LeBron James is the perfect example of how idiotic and hypocritical White Supremacy is.

Blue Lives Matter, No Matter What… Except For This Officer Who The Cause Abandoned (Video)

I will let the Francis tell you about the angles. The facts: (1) Officer Mohamed Noor used deadly violence, (2) it was unjustified, (3) Noor should be punished just like all the other wrongful shooters should have been, BUT (4) there has been no support in this particular situation from those aligned with #BlueLivesMatter

We are now left with the big ‘why’ questions. Chief among them, why is the only time we the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ mantra is invoked is in juxtaposition to ‘Black Lives Matter’ …The mantra has provided cover for other cops’ bad shoots, so why not Noor’s? Could there be another color to consider other than ‘blue’ or can unquestioned faith in officers’ in-the-moment decision-making all of a sudden be questioned when the cop’s chosen faith is not ‘ideal?’

Get ’em Francis!

Study Shows That People Think Black Men Are Scary (Video)

This is crazy. But then you realize that SOMETHING has been serving to ‘justify’ the frequent escalation to violence and murder against Black men (by radical racists, out of control cops, even Black assailants). Maybe research studies, leading to thoughtful discussion, can start us down the path to treating Black Lives like the really Matter.

A study found that both White and Black people often view Black men as older, bigger, and stronger than they actually are. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, and Jordan Chariton, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why.

Dinosaur Tail Found Preserved In Amber (Video)

A dinosaur tail was found recently preserved in amber. So, wow, does this mean Jurassic Park will be opening soon for real?? Soft tissue for DNA extraction. Maybe they even find a mosquito tucked in there with the tail, too.

The tail of a 99-million-year-old dinosaur, including bones, soft tissue, and even feathers, has been found preserved in amber, according to a report published today in the journal Current Biology.

Feathers? Well, yeah, feathers. They have been found in amber, and evidence for feathered dinosaurs is captured in fossil impressions. This is the first time that scientists are able to clearly associate well-preserved feathers with a dinosaur.

Cenk Uygur Speaks On How Muhammad Ali Should Truly Be Remembered (Video)

Muhammad Ali… He was a strong, proud Black man and he didn’t mind telling you…
Cenk Uygur

Powerful! Cenk Uygur gives us 5 minutes of RAW commentary to set (or keep) perspectives straight on the legacy of Ali. Don’t let all the soft, lofty words now being spoken about The Greatest in this time of mourning make you think Ali was whitewashed or weak (or even worried about being ‘liked’) in any way at any time in his life.

Muhammad Ali has been described as transcending race, but that takes away from his powerful stance on being a Black man. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, delivers his Final Judgment on Muhammad Ali’s legacy.

It is important that for all the ways that Ali should be remembered – winning fighter, charismatic public figure, ambassador for peace and justice – we must NEVER forget that Ali was NOT living to win approval from the majority. As much a warrior out of the ring as in, he spoke harshly on injustices perpetuated by America and the White majority in the U.S. and abroad; refusing to be part of or tacitly endorse it in any way.

Good to keep that straight.

Ashley Williams Feels Hilary Clinton Owes Us An Apology. She Wrote A Sign About It. Wanna See It? (Video)

Ashley Williams. Pretty bold. Plus, the topic (the framing of young Black people as ‘super-predators’ as then President Bill Clinton, ultimately signed a ‘Three Strikes” crime bill that locked thousands of them up) deserves national attention that it was not getting until this fundraiser protest move.

Hillary Clinton was at a fundraiser in South Carolina when a Black Lives Matter protester interrupted her speech. She held up a banner that had a pretty devastating quote from the candidate.

Cenk Uygur does make a good strategy point in his critique: If only Ashley could have gotten an answer from Former Secretary Clinton #WhichHilary #BlackLivesMatter

So…why’d she do it? Cenk talked about it. Watch the video straight from Ashley after the jump.

Muslim Counter-Protest Strategy: Kindness Conquers Hate And Fear (Video)

So, another dope clip from AJ+ shows up in my Facebook feed: This time about a one-woman Anti-Muslim protest outside a mosque in Ohio. Police were on hand, and it could have gone badly but… well, I won’t spoil the clip. However, what I will do is embed The Young Turks commentary on the clip above. Sure, they have a boldly liberal slant on almost all things; but I always admire the way they come with a combination level-headed delivery and passion in their interpretation. Same here. The original clip, which I’m betting you will love, appears after the jump. But TYT head honcho Cenk and analyst Ana above… They will make you think. Good stuff!

One of the anti-Muslim rallies that happened in the country didn’t have the best turnout. A protest in Ohio only attracted one demonstrator. She was greeted by Muslim protestors who wanted to educate her on their religion. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

Mobile Showers Show Compassion For The Homeless And Common Sense (Video)

I ran across a great AJ+ mini-documentary shared in my Facebook stream and went hunting for embed code on YouTube to post here. Found it… after running across this The Young Turks commentary on it. See TYTs Ana Kasparian and Ben Mankiewicz talking about how Bathrooms On Wheels this applied common sense can help meet a need AND restore human dignity; and calling San Francisco’s (California, USA) government and people on their bullsh!t along the way.

See the full AJ+ video after the jump.
