    Frankly in my opinion...ANYBODY...who is openly Anti-American beit Antifa, BLM politician or common folks...should be permanently exiled from here.
    I also get so tired of candy-asses having a meltdown because somebody called a spade a spade and chooses NOT to be politically correct or follow in line with the liberal left or Democrat(Demon-Rat) thinking.
    Those that want a communist type rule simply move to one of those countries.
    Leave us the hell alone.

    Cuba is just a quick swim in the Gulf away. Why don't they just go there and be happy?

    The left have trouble in this country adopting the 'defund the police' slogan because the Coalition government under David Cameron did just that ten years ago, and the left have been banging on about it ever since (as a part of their wider opposition to the spending cuts of the Cameron era). Whenever the subject of law and order, and any increases in crime, comes up, it is always mentioned as a cause. It is not really a cause of any crime and disorder, because although the numbers of police did reduce slightly, the number of serving police is still historically a high number:

    There are also a raft of responsibilities that the police used to have that they have off-loaded onto other organizations and support staff (community support officers, office workers, councils, private enforcement and security firms, and the Crown Prosecution Service) that they used to be responsible for (like parking enforcement, prisoner transport, and prosecutions), and so the effective number of police available for dealing with the crimes that they have supposedly organized themselves to focus on is very high.

    But anyway, since 2010, the left have argued for a restoration of police funding and staffing to pre-2010 levels. I rather hope they get their wish, if only for it to be demonstrated that the issue of police funding is a red herring and is not tied to the level of crime and disorder. Rather, it is that the police do not believe in policing and the judiciary does not punish wrongdoing.

    The police were captured by the left many years ago, and have been working toward leftist aims ever since, having abandoned their primary mission of preventing crime, being mainly reactive in nature, but even still in many cases do not even bother to intercede during the commission of crimes or to apprehend wrongdoers. The police act most enthusiastically to enforce the left wing speech codes that are in force in this country, and prefer to patrol Twitter, rather than 'the beat'. They also react strongly to any perceived challenge to their authority, such as against someone who uses force to defend themselves from harm by others.

    The news-political complex is about the most evil thing I can think of.

    This needs to be shut down and stopped immediately...

    This BLM Co-Founder and Pro-Communist China Group Are Partnering Up. Here’s Why.

    The threat of foreign interference in our domestic affairs is a serious matter, whether the suspects are rivals such as Russia or friendlies such as Mexico. This is especially the case if a foreign power were abetting unrest that aims to topple our constitutional order.

    Well, the scenario described above is happening, though not with Russia or the far right, but with China and the leftist disturbances upending America and seeking to transform it.

    Yet, there has not been a peep from the media or Congress about China’s support of the riots.

    Go to the website for the Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, and click on the “Donate” button. It will ask you to send your money to an obscure organization, the Chinese Progressive Association, explaining that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.”

    Screenshot_20200915-145213.jpg

    History of Chinese Progressive Association

    The CPA was founded in San Francisco in 1972 during the heady days of the Marxist-oriented Asian American Movement, and today it also has a very active chapter in Boston. From its start, it has been a promoter of the People’s Republic of China.

    According to an authoritative 2009 Stanford University paper tracing its early days to the present, and which can be found on Marxist.org, “The CPA began as a Leftist, pro-People’s Republic of China organization, promoting awareness of mainland China’s revolutionary thought and workers’ rights, and dedicated to self-determination, community control, and ‘serving the people.’”
    The CPA, continued the paper, “worked with other pro-PRC groups within the U.S. and San Francisco Bay Area … Support for the PRC was based on the inspiration the members drew from what they saw as a successful grassroots model that presented a viable alternative to Western capitalism.”

    One of the ways it did this was by holding “film screenings that were open to the public, sometimes showing Chinese films as well to facilitate understanding of the country’s revolutionary ideas. … CPA also took the lead with groups such as the U.S.-China People’s Friendship Organization to celebrate China’s National Day on Oct. 1”.

    To this day, the CPA continues to be a partner of the PRC in the United States. Three years ago, the Boston chapter teamed up with China’s Consulate General in New York to offer Chinese nationals the opportunity to renew their passports, getting praise from China’s official mouthpiece, China Daily.

    Last year, the CPA sponsored the raising of the PRC’s flag for the first time ever over Boston’s City Hall to honor the takeover of China by the Chinese Communist Party, just as the Stanford paper says has been its practice from the beginning, but this time drawing protesters. The event was organized, again, with the Chinese Consulate. Consul General Sun Guoxiang was on hand to say that, “The common interests are far more important than differences between U.S. and China.”

    CPA co-founder Lydia Lowe also spoke at the event, reminding her audience that “McCarthyism is behind us. The Cold War is behind us.” In an essay

    she authored with other people on the Marxist revolutionary site LeftRoots last year, Lowe, however, sounded as though she wanted to start another Cold War, writing that she wanted Asians to play a role in creating a “revolutionary strategy” that would achieve a “fundamentally different society.”
    And CPA drew praise from China’s mouthpiece China Daily just a few weeks ago, for taking part again in Black Lives Matter demonstrations in San Francisco.

    Black Lives Matter Opposes Capitalism

    It is clear, then, that CPA works with China’s communist government, pushes its agenda here in the United States, and is regularly praised by China’s state-owned mouthpieces. It is clear, too, from, this perspective, why the CPA would sponsor a new enterprise by BLM founder Alicia Garza: they espouse the same desire for world communism.

    Garza sits atop a worldwide revolutionary empire, starting with the Black Lives Matter Global Network she founded, which now has 15 chapters in the U.S. and several more all over Canada, Australia, and Europe. As Foreign Affairs wrote in its September/October issue, “Today, BLM has a global network of dozens of chapters. This number will likely grow exponentially in the coming years.”



    Garza is also behind the Movement for Black Lives, with its 50 domestic organizations. In July she said, “We helped to also pull together an ecosystem that was much broader than the organization that we founded, and that ecosystem is called the Movement for Black Lives and it is taking the world by storm.”

    Movement for Black Lives is unabashedly anti-capitalist, saying on its website, “we are anti-capitalist. We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.”

    So is Garza, and she means to use her international platform to end world capitalism. In 2015, she told an important gathering of global Marxists, “It’s not possible for a world to emerge where black lives matter if it’s under capitalism, and it’s not possible to abolish capitalism without a struggle against national oppression.”

    There, she portrayed BLM as an offshoot of the Black Liberation Movement, the Marxist pan-Africanist Movement. “BLM, BLM,” she said coyly.

    Last year, Garza told a roomful of Maine progressives, “We’re talking about changing how we’ve organized this country, so that we actually can achieve the justice that we are fighting for. I believe we all have work to do to keep dismantling the organizing principle of this society, which creates inequities for everyone.”

    The Role of Black Futures Lab

    Two years ago, Garza created the Black Futures Lab, the organization that the Chinese Progressive Association funds, as yet another asset in the vast Garza empire. By the looks of it, it acts as a sort of a lobbying arm of this empire.

    As Colorlines put it when it was launched on Sept. 26, 2018, Black Futures Lab “seeks to engage advocacy organizations and legislators to advance local-, state- and federal-level policies that make Black communities stronger. It will also craft strategies that harness Black political power to bring those policies to fruition.”

    “Today, we are launching the Black Futures Lab as a way to mobilize around our needs, hopes, and dreams,” Garza told Colorlines in an emailed statement. “For too long, people have spoken for us and perpetuated false representations of the issues that drive our votes.”

    This legislative clout adds to the organizing muscle that The Black Lives Matters Global Network and Movement for Black Lives organizations already bring.

    As I wrote at City Journal last month, the BLM organizations have been the nerve center of this year’s protests: “They have been laying the groundwork for years, carefully cultivating a network of groups that could organize protests when the moment came and amplify the message through social media.”

    Communist China has put its vast propaganda apparatus to work in support of the mayhem that has wreaked havoc in American cities this year. China is, after all, a rival of the United States, and would see weakening of U.S. society and the country in general as advantageous.

    The involvement of an outfit as closely associated with the Chinese government in the funding of one of Garza’s ventures is something else entirely, however.

    Maybe journalists and congressmen have not seen it till now (I myself hadn’t until Jenny Nguyen, a graduate of The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program, alerted me to it).

    But now they have.
