The propaganda “news site” The Daily Wire, which is headed by suspected white supremacist Ben Shapiro, has finally admitted to printing fake stories under the guise of “doing satire. ”

The Daily Wire has already been added to a Blacklist of “news sites” that are considered fake and unreliably bias. (Read the list in it’s entirety here)

This week the Daily Wire published another fake story with a deliberately misleading headline that read: “Outraged Celebrities Apologize After Finding Out Obama Said Almost Exactly What Ben Carson Did About Slaves–Oh Wait”

The bogus article proceeded to attribute fake quotes to producer Tariq Nasheed, rapper Ice-T, and others:

“Almost immediately following the Free Beacon story, the celebrities and commentators who castigated Dr. Ben Carson took to social media to apologize.

Tariq Nasheed said: “Wow. I guess I should have thought about it more before I called Carson a c**n. I’m truly sorry.” ICE-T offered a similar apology, writing: “I hate eating crow, but admitting fault is the right thing to do. It was very foolish of me to call Ben Carson a dumbf***. So sorry!”

At the very end of this fake news, click baiting article, the writer Frank Camp attempted to put a disclaimer at the very end of the false story that stated:

“Oh wait–none of that happened. No retractions; no apologies; no mention that Carson’s language directly mirrored Obama’s.”

Ice-T called out the fake article and the writer on twitter:

When Tariq Nasheed called out the phony article on social media, the writer Frank Camp claimed it was satire:

Screen-Shot-2017-03-10-at-10.54.45-PM.png

And the head of the fake news Daily Wire website Ben Shapiro took to twitter to insult and antagonize Tariq Nasheed for pointing out their cowardly, yellow journalism:

Screen-Shot-2017-03-10-at-10.56.35-PM.png

According to Tariq Nasheed, this isn’t the first time the Daily Wire has printed false stories about him. Here is a past Daily Wire article about Nasheed, which made false claims about his Castro comments, and here is another bogus Daily Wire article that claimed Nasheed was “crazy” and that he “went nuts” over the shooting of an immigrant.

Here is yet another fake news article from the Daily Wire where they falsely claim Nasheed is a “Black Lives Matter advocate”, when Nasheed has repeatedly stated that he has nothing to do with BLM whatsoever.

This type of deceptive, racialized propaganda coming from these fake news sites like the Daily Wire is indicative of the “alternative facts” mantra of the current Trump presidency. And it has no place in the fight for truth and justice.


You are so dumb lol Do you really not understand what satire is? Like, how old are you?

I imagine you're missed in the white supremacist jerkoff thread, best scurry back there little boy. lol

Ahh, I guess you didn't understand what I was doing there, chief. I was just cut and pasting like someone else around here, to show what kind of website The Daily Wire is.

You've obviously been jerking off way too much, your little brain has gone to mush. Now cowboy, go on back and keep posting your bullshit, your circle jerkers are probably lonely with out you. lol lol lol Also, I thought it was the thing to do around here, just keep cut and pasting long boring posts lol lol

While the council’s budget committee voted on a variety of amendments related to police funding, activists marched from a King County juvenile detention facility to City Hall. One reporter on scene captured demonstrators chanting, “Bad boys. Bad boys. Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when we defund you?”

Seattle’s vote comes on the heels of other local governments, including the Washington D.C. Council, passing legislation to dismantle or cut the budgets of police departments.

A Stay-at-Home Mom on Her Reasons for Leaving Portland
NR Interview 3 hrs ago

While covering events (see here and here) in Portland, Ore., National Review writer Luther Abel sat down with Joanna — a college-educated, stay-at-home mom and now Trump voter — who feels it is no longer safe or healthy to live there. They discussed the change that has happened in the city politically, the ineffective governance, and the continued degradation of the city she and her family love.


LA: What's happening in Portland now?

Joanna: Portland has become an absolute out of control mess of progressive politics. Woke progressivism has accelerated and is amplified everywhere. And it was tolerable for a long time because Portland had so much else to offer. But that's not the case anymore. Something significant has changed, though it's hard to blame it on just one thing. The cost of living keeps rising. There are homeless tents everywhere. The ongoing lockdowns have been devastating. The ongoing protests, destruction, and violence have stripped the city of its beautiful downtown. And it's reached a point where you feel you have to pick a side. In the past, even six months or a year ago, it wasn't easy, but it was tolerable because you could just keep things to yourself if you disagreed. But right now, by not being forthcoming with either promoting Black Lives Matter, or being openly sympathetic to rioters, it's viewed as if you don't care about black lives. And don't even think about questioning the motives of the Black Lives Matter movement. Full disclosure, I'm a Republican and a Trump supporter. Looking back, 2016 was the year things started to change for me. The city has never gotten over the election of Donald Trump, and I've often described it as turning point for Portland. It feels like the city was knocked upside down. Being a Republican was not a problem per se, prior to 2016.

LA: Was it okay to be an outspoken Republican or only a quiet Republican?

Joanna: I think a little bit of both. I remember talking about McCain or Romney and that was fine. I was just outnumbered, but it wasn't as if people had animus towards them. But in 2016, especially when Trump became the nominee, I had a lot of social groups, whether it was other mothers, neighbors, or people at the park. My kids were really young then so I sought out a lot of these groups and it just became very apparent, very early through comments, such as my neighbor saying, "If Trump wins, we're going to move to India" or just horrible comments about Trump or conservatism in general. It was a difficult time for me. Eventually it got to the point where I had to just come right out and express that I was actually going to vote for Trump. You see, people here just naturally assume everyone is liberal. And I didn't start out as a Trump supporter, but fairly quickly I came to support him because of the way I felt the Republican Party tried to oust him. That's when I knew the "swamp" was real and plagued both parties.

And so things really turned for the worse in 2016. I started noticing, throughout the neighborhood, a massive movement. Resistance to everything without an understanding of the issues themselves, the underlying data, what was really happening, it just felt so surface oriented, emotionally driven, and a repeat of media talking points. Yard signs popped up everywhere and are still on proud display. I don't even feel I can have a conversation with the vast majority of my friends and close family right now. I did recently have a conversation about race and when asked about the violence and destruction downtown, the sentiment expressed was that protests and movements that turn violent are necessary — at times — for real change to occur. Roughly speaking, I don't disagree with that logic to a certain extent, but I always feel strongly that I'm not going to condemn one thing if I don't want to apply the same principle to myself. And there could be a time when I feel liberty and freedom is at such risk that there might be protests and movements that resort to violence or destruction. Not that I condone that, but I could understand why it would finally get to that point. In this case, I think that if people really cared about black lives, they would start to look at what areas we could address legislatively and locally to improve things. Whether it's access to education, whether it's a look at the nuclear family. I could go down the list, but nobody out there wants to have these conversations. The only solution I'm hearing is to defund the police, and I can't think of a worse solution to the problem.

This is the net effect that allowing all the riots in places like Portland will have. That woman probably would have voted Biden or at least not Trump, but here we are because a lot of people look at what's going on there and say, "Well, I don't want this and obviously my state and local governments, police department, and city council aren't willing to do anything about it." I hate the method of sending DHS agents in (I'm anti pretty much all federal forms of law enforcement and feel that that should be handled by state/local departments) but the state and local powers sat on their hands and refused to protect the innocents.

Covid would have definitely put a Trump reelection in doubt, but all his campaign will have to do is show videos of the cities burning and say, "This is what the Democrats want/have allowed" and that'll definitely get him closer to winning. neutral

Portland mayor condemns rioters for 'attempting to commit murder'

The mayor said violent protesters will be used as "props" for President Trump's reelection campaign



Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside.

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder," Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell.

"Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are," he said. "You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

A riot was declared Wednesday evening when agitators descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke a glass door with a 2x4, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers, according to FOX 12 in Portland.

Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers.

RIOTERS VANDALIZE, SET FI...CE: POLICE

The front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside, police said, according to FOX 12.

Officers used tear gas to disperse the rioters and at least eight people were arrested. A federal court order bars police from using tear gas unless a riot is declared.



“I believe that city staff could have died last night,” Wheeler said. “I cannot and I will not tolerate that. This is not peaceful protests. This is not advocacy to advance reforms.”

Rioters also vandalized and broke into Portland’s P...sociation Tuesday night.

Wheeler also urged peaceful protesters to avoid gatherings that could turn destructive or violent, according to Oregon Live.

“If you are a nonviolent demonstrator and you don’t want to be part of intentional violence, please stay away from these areas,” Wheeler said. “Our community must say that this violence is not Portland, that these actions do not reflect our values and these crimes are distracting from reform, not advancing.”

Across from City Hall, a protest encampment is a 'reminder' of need for police reform
James Queally 1 hr ago

James Butler was tired of watching protests against racial injustice end abruptly each night as Los Angeles police ordered demonstrators to go home.





© Provided by The LA Times Jason Morales, 34, of Pacoima is living with a group of people in Grand Park with the shared goal of promoting Black unity. (Brian van der Brug / Los Angeles Times)

The 22-year-old founder of Black Future Project, one of many new activist groups that sprang up in the city amid waves of demonstrations following the death of George Floyd, was among thousands of marchers who took to the streets earlier this summer calling for wholesale change to a criminal justice system he feels routinely brutalizes Black and brown people.

But as city and county officials ramped up efforts to slow protests that had at times been marked by violence and vandalism, calling in the National Guard and instituting curfews, Butler began to grow frustrated.

"You can't say 'defund the police' and then be going home when they tell you to go home," he said.

Instead, Butler and a few other demonstrators decided to make their home the protest. On June 9, they erected a camp in Grand Park that two months later has grown into both an outdoor activist community and a visible reminder to anyone walking through downtown L.A. that even if protest crowds have shrunk since early summer, the push for change is far from over.

"You gotta catch the bus, you come out to Civic Center, no matter what you do, you will see this, and you'll think, why are they there? Why are they still there?" said Ben Jenkins, 29, who cooks most of the meals at the camp.

Butler's group parted ways in early July, and the camp is now under the banner of another new organization, Black Unity L.A.

Protest occupations have launched in several U.S. cities this summer, aimed at reclaiming public spaces as demonstrations of how communities without police might work.



© (Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times) Syd plants tomatoes in the community garden at the Black Unity L.A. encampment. (Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times)Results have been mixed. Seattle's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, which spanned several blocks, was cleared out in early July after three weeks following a pair of shootings that left two young Black men dead. Last month, a protest encampment that had sprung up across from New York City Hall in Manhattan was shut down after its initial organizers began to cede ground to homeless people, as graffiti and vandalism in the area drew the ire of residents and police unions.

The Los Angeles encampment — which sits near City Hall, LAPD headquarters and the county's largest courthouse — has drawn few objections by comparison, as the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically reduced downtown foot traffic.

Jenkins said about 30 people are directly involved with the community now; nearly half of them spend their nights sleeping downtown in a sprawl of tents that sit behind a circle of small barricades directly across from City Hall. Beyond the tents, the demonstrators have set up a kitchen where Jenkins fixes as many quick meals as he can from whatever food the group can scrounge. Donations have stocked a library with a range of books from Stephen King bestsellers to tomes on art history.

A garden sits toward the back of the area, with herbs and vegetables ready to sprout in planters marked by the names of Black men and women killed by police across the country, including Floyd and Breonna Taylor. At the edge of the garden, a hut made almost entirely of fallen palm fronds is a nod to the Indigenous Tongva people who once called Los Angeles home.

...
Morales said he learned about de-escalation tactics while inside the camp and has used those skills to help mitigate disputes among occupants.

"There's been things that have happened at the park, obviously, but we're not going to call the police for help," said Butler. "We'd rather deal with it internally."

Butler said he intended to combine education and activism when founding the camp. In mid-June, the group held a viewing of Ava DuVernay's documentary "13th," which focuses on the disproportionate incarceration of Black people in the U.S. Black Future Project had previously used the site as a staging ground for protests, and more recent events under Black Unity have focused on teaching people how to render first aid during protests.
...

For all the talk of community, though, apparent ideological differences split the two activist groups. Members of Black Future Project claimed a violent clash led them to leave the park July 9. The current occupiers say the breakup was driven by a dispute over how to run the camp.

Jenkins said continued acts of police violence have proved the need for the site. Nine days after the encampment was founded, he noted, a sheriff's deputy in Gardena fatally shot 18-year-old Andres Guardado in the back five times. Sheriff's officials said Guardado was armed with a weapon and are investigating, but the incident has spurred ongoing protests and calls to prosecute the deputy who opened fire.

"Our main focus is to stay here, planted, and be a constant reminder," Jenkins said. "Injustice is here, and nothing's been done about it."
