Racist-In-Chief Trump Tweets: WHEN THE LOOTING STARTS, THE SHOOTING STARTS; Police Precinct Breached; CNN Crew ARRESTED Comments (0)

It's not a good idea to go to sleep anymore in the U.S. — you never know if you're going to wake up to the same country. And we haven't.

Calling people thugs is part of why this is all happening.

Unrest in Minnesota over the George-floyd-boyculturein-broad-daylight murder of George Floyd has inspired Trump to tweet that the people reacting to systemic racism and oppression are the THUGS, and to promise armed military intervention — and more state-sanctioned murders.

How can anyone think looting and unrest are the problem when black people are being targeted and willfully murdered for no reason at all, for non-violent offenses, and in Floyd's case, Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman has already telegraphed the ending to the story, saying:

My job in the end is to prove he violated a criminal statute. And there is other evidence that does not support a criminal charge. We need to wade through all of that evidence and come to a meaningful decision and we are doing that to the best of our ability.

He later said he misspoke about other evidence. Too late.

CNN's Omar Jimenez, a man of color, and his crew were — outrageously — arrested by Minnesota state police for covering the rioting in the city. An American reporter has been arrested by police. This is what happens in a dictatorship. There can be no doubt that there is a connection between the fact that it was CNN's staff being arrested and Trump's continual braying that CNN is “fake news” and “the enemy of the people.” This is a breath away from Tiananmen Square.

CNN is calling for the immediate release of its employees:

Gov. Tim Walz, a Democrat, has reportedly apologized to CNN's Jeff Zucker, and is working to have the CNN crew released. The problem is that we are in an increasingly police-controlled state, regardless of who is at the top of the food chain. They're acting more and more on their own.

Meanwhile:

Derek Chauvin, the cop who murdered Floyd with a knee on his neck had been the subject of over a dozen police-conduct complaints — with no punishment. Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng were immediately fired after Floyd's death.

Floyd and his killer, Chauvin, both worked security for the same club, El Nuevo Rodeo on Lake Street in Minneapolis. Chauvin worked outside and Floyd and other security guards worked inside.

Thao brutally beat an unarmed, handcuffed man during an arrest six years ago.

The protests of Floyd's murder have spread across the U.S., and are threatening to snowball as prosecutors weakly have requested patience as the case is examined.

√ HUNDREDS of cops are protecting ... the home of murderer Derek Chauvin.

√ Armed rednecks are out there in Minneapolis protecting — what else? — the stores. The stores.

BIG Night For Dems — We Took Virginia & New Jersey Governorships; 1st Trans State Legislator Elected! Comments (0)

35ez2d2X_400x400The two most overall impactful political news items of the evening have to be Ralph Northam's (pictured, left) big win over Republican flunkie Ed Gillespie for the governorship of Virginia, followed by Phil Murphy creaming Chris Christie's Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno for the governorship of New Jersey.

But there is such a thing as optics — the thinking man's karma — and nobody had a better-looking win than fabulous Danica Roem.

51lOr0fYHkLParents tend to think the world revolves around their precious progeny, which can lead to whacky things like Evangelicals Kurt and Michaela Jaros demanding a Chicago library remove from its shelves a gay-positive book because their 3-year-old toddler allegedly stumbled across it.

This Day in June (Magination Press) teaches kids about Pride, and has the American Psychological Association's seal of approval.
