Virginia's Incoming Lt. Governor Winsome Sears Shares Her Story
"I've got so much to ask you and I know we have a limited amount of time together, but I first of all, just an amazed that the messenger in this case wins some Sears has a story. And where you came from and the history of how you do you mind for people who they love the way you speak and they love the message you have for America, they love what you're going to do for the Commonwealth of Virginia. But for the benefit of people who don't know your life story, would you mind sort of taking us through your journey? Very quickly, I had said before that my story starts with my father, but it actually starts with my grandfather who came to America back in the 30s as a fruit picker because some extra money so that he could help his family. So he came pick some fruit and went back to Jamaica. And he did that a few times and then my father came in 1963 from Jamaica after, you know, he could prove who background check who he is, who he said he was, and everything else that he had to do and then he was allowed into the country. That was August 11th of 1963, just 17 days before Martin Luther King Jr. gave his I have a dream speech. And so I asked my father, why would you come then? You know, it was a bad time for us and because this is where the jobs were. And I said, yeah, but you came at the height of the civil rights movement. He said, this is where opportunities were. He came with, took any job he could find, but himself through school started as American dreamer. Now he's comfortably retired, and by the way, this house that he's in. It's the second one he's built since retirement. I said to him, it's too big for you. You know what? He said, leave me alone. It's my money. Imagine that. Leave me alone. It's my money. I
COINTELPRO: The Counterintelligence Program of the FBI
"COINTELPRO was a series of FBI projects that were covert and honestly illegal projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation. Aimed at surveilling infiltrating discrediting and disrupting domestic American political organizations. COINTELPRO went from 1956 to 1971. And some of their targets were the Nation of Islam was Martin Luther King Jr.'s organization, the southern pastor leadership conference or whatever the name was. And the only reason we ever learned about COINTELPRO. The only reason we were able ever able to get to the bottom of pros, operations. Was not because of some cross examination from Congress, was not because of a lawsuit. It was about something that I don't support, which was breaking and entering into a federal building. So during the famous Muhammad Ali Frazier fight, which was one of the most watched sporting events to date, on March 8th, 1971, a group of activists broke into the small two man office at the Federal Bureau of Investigation in media, Pennsylvania. They stole more than 1000 FBI documents that revealed years of systematic wiretapping, infiltration and media manipulation designed to suppress dissent. The citizens commissioned to investigate the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As the group called itself, forced its way in at night with a crowbar while much of the country was watching the Muhammad Ali Frazier fight. When agents arrived for work the next morning, they found the cabinets virtually empty virtually emptied, within a few weeks the documents began to show up, mailed anonymously in Manila envelopes with no return address newsrooms of major American newspapers. From that point forward after 1971, COINTELPRO was sunsetted and the government, the federal government's effort to wiretap an infiltrate American political organizations seemingly

MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart Degrades Winsome Sears' Victory, Citing Race
"Go ahead They elected winsome seers as lieutenant governor She will be the first African American woman to be elected statewide in Virginia history It's The Wall Street Journal Nice try But invoking the name of lieutenant governor elect winsome Sears doesn't prove my assertion wrong about the role of race in the Virginia governor's election Not in the least Look voting for someone black does not grant absolution from racism It's not because people voted for somebody who's black They voted for somebody despite her race That's the point Martin Luther King Not Derek bell Are you too stupid to understand He obsessed with your racist hate to get it People go to the polls white racist go to the polls and say I'm going to vote for a black person a pro I'm not a white racist Just listen to how pathetic And how irrational this clown
Mark Meadows Joins Charlie to Talk Through the Politics of the Day
"Nothing will make people see that Donald Trump actually acted in their best interest as much as Joe Biden doing as poorly as he's done. Who would have imagined in fact the president Trump mentioned this the other day. He says, Mark, can you imagine it was going to be this bad this quickly? And the answer is, no, and I had a very low expectation. You know, it's hard to be below last on an expectation. But I had a very low bar for what they were going to do. Here's the other thing that I think that we start to see. The left has lurked so much. You get to see this each and every day on college campuses and in the public square. They've learned so far to the left that all of a sudden people they want to fight on their behalf. You know, when you look at CRT in the schools and telling parents, they're domestic terrorists. I mean, at this point, you've got unaffiliated voters and what I would say moderate to conservative Democrats if there's such a thing as a conservative Democrat left, they are all of a sudden saying, you know what, at least Donald Trump was willing to fight for me and I need somebody that's willing to fight. And the critical race theory is one key component. We have got to, we've got to understand that you don't judge people by the color of their skin. It's by the content of their character to quote Martin Luther King
How Critical Race Theory Is Drenched in Marxist Principles
"There was a group of legitimate marxists that left Germany came to America. They found a safe haven here. They believed in economic Marxism, so they believed in their own personal opinion, the abolition of private property, the rights of the workers, all these sorts of things, and ushering in a utopia, the destruction of the American family, and they realized that bringing Marx has been communism to America has proven to be rather difficult. And so a specific thinker, if you could call them that, but he was pretty smart, strong about everything. Herbert Marcus came, and he had a disciple by the name of Angela Davis, who is a black woman communist who lives in California still. She's 77 years old, and they believe that race is the most important thing. They believe that all power dynamics are not economic. It's not about character. It's not about who you are. It's about the color of your skin. That everything around you is racist and that we must do everything we possibly can to try to organize society try to upheave the white supremacist colonialist imperialistic misogynistic bigoted culture and try to usher in some sort of indigenous people, people of color type revolt. This is where you started to get terms like people of color, minority ethnic groups, soon after you've got affirmative action, admission standards in college, all these sorts of things that came through kind of post that era. And then in the 1980s, 1990s, there was kind of a cooling off period where the predominant viewpoint I was born in 1993 was that, hey, we're not going to care about skin color. We're going to care about the content of people's character. Martin Luther King said that famously in his address at the speech of the Washington mall, and that was something that was repeated many, many times, which is, hey, it's not good. In fact, it's racist to care about people's skin color to organize them based on ethnocentric tribes. Instead, we are all made of the image of God. We are complex human beings and your skin colors, the most immaterial part of you. In fact, that is a sloppy, lazy and dare I say divisive way to actually try and say, this is the most important way to even think about your fellow human

Two years trae There's more coverage apples southbound doughnuts. There's a lot of dunkin's yeah there's a lot of dunkin donuts and and so so. The lion share those churches are in california. Ten thousand percent growth harvest crusades greg. Laurie but but in sixty eight we had the fifth largest gdp and it was a state of the future a trait but he avoids politics because the kids are burned out on it. I am grateful to chuck for my verse by verse. You know systematic study of the scriptures. I do not resent that. I i am who i am because he did what he did. But we miss something. Because we didn't engage in the public square the matthew sixteen we avoided that and now california no longer has a fifth largest gdp. We have the six maybe seven.

Why the Civil Rights Movement Was a Bad Thing for Black People
"What are some of the hot topics we you said you wanted to talk about. Pride month prior month so black people only get twenty eight days but Lgbtq pride month is it's now the month of june and june teeth which is in june cuts into pride month. So it's fundamentally homophobic uh-huh need to talk about that so i'm gonna say something that's groundbreaking and is going to offend. A lot of people are right. The civil rights movement was the worst thing to happen to this nation into the black community. Why because the civil rights movement pivoted this. lgbtq narrative and it's also pivoting. Pedophilia push as a form of sexuality. Follow me for a second. we're gonna have to. This is crazy. But i'm gonna be real with you. People don't tune out. Could this always ends well. But you gotta hang in is heavy so now which helped understand the segregation was not an all of the united states of america. Right it was only in the south correct right so let's talk about. Harriet tubman for a second. I'm as an example slave in maryland. She traveled a hundred miles north to philadelphia. The moment she touched philadelphia. She was a free woman right. So this tells you in the north. Obviously since i found it fathers there was no slavery. It always was in the south. Okay jim crow laws and all of this stuff. This success always in the south. Now you may have. Had the north people like marco mex and all of these people talk about it and take on the culture in a sense of the depravity of what was happening but that wasn't there portion right so now martin luther king comes in. He says listen. We want to have the same abilities in the same access to what white people have but we had it. We have built our own schools. We had owned businesses. Our homes solid right so now. Civil rights comes in Jfk dies and the newborn johnson steps in and he says listen. I understand your struggle. we're going gonna make it equal for everybody but we also do a warm poverty. We're going to give you guys welfare
Reach for Your Dreams
"Scary to me. How our culture got so wrapped up into smart goals specific and measurable and attainable or realistic. Time bound you know just very awesome left brain goal thinking stuff but i think the problem is are. We have this culture now where we're dominated by by these very realistic goals and we're dominated by spreadsheets and checklists and all these great left brain things that maybe are supposed to help us accomplish things and yet we have an entire culture now or setting too small of goals you know where the moonshot dreams and ideas you know. Where's the walking putting the person on the moon dreams whereas the build a big business and empire that takes over the world dreams. Where's the things that says. I'm going to serve millions of people dreams. Those aren't realistic. It was not a smart goal for columbus to sail across the ocean. It was not a smart goal for for martin luther king to say let's march on washington. It was not a smart goal for us to say. Hey let's put a man into orbit or let's put a man and a woman into a container to metal container and fine across the sky. These were not smart goals. There was nothing at all attainable or realistic or even necessarily timely about those types of things. They were impossible dreams and we have to fire those up in our lives again. If we're ever to experience the zest there is no sexiness. Enjoy in being smart goal person like come on yes we have to at some point bring a gold down to earth and and measure it out and think through it. That's where people automatically go. They're scared to think about a goal. That's measurable not just in terms of. Can i get it done. Miserable in terms of their life destiny their their mission. They're scared to think that level that is ambitious and full of fire and dreams and hopes. So i'm i'm here to tell you set some dumb goals. Okay let me let me tell you about a dumb goal. Adum goal the d. Let's let's make us up okay. The d. stands for dream driven. Let's start there. Let's start way up here. What would be the ideal. The perfect the magical thing that's even beyond maybe even your immediate comprehension to think way outside the box.

Planned Parenthood Is the Definition of White Supremacy
"You know, we hear a lot of people these days expressed concerns about something called White supremacist. Um Well, let me tell you something about that. As far as I'm concerned, Planned Parenthood is white supremacist. Um, if we want to read American society The vestiges of racism against people of color in this country, the best thing that can happen in this country. As for the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe versus Wade, For states to outlaw abortion. And for Planned Parenthood to be put out of business. None other than Dr Martin Luther King's own niece, Dr Alveda King. Has stated the Planned Parenthood has achieved what the KKK the Klan never could have dreamed of the deliberate killing of millions of black babies. I mean, I don't know if you ever noticed, but Planned Parenthood offices tend to be in minority neighborhoods. Don't know if you are aware of this, but Margaret Singer who started Planned Parenthood 100 years ago. Was a racist. And recently just in the last few months. The current head of Planned Parenthood said. Look, we're done trying to Um Remember the exact words but done trying to deal with the racist past of our founder. Anyway. This needs to stop
Sebastian Gorka Says It's Time for Civil Disobedience
"We should revisit the term resistance because for the last four years. It was either joke. Stupid pussycat hats and insane. Media figures promoting violence and terrorist acts. Oh not just media. i mean it was. What's her face. Maxine waters as well right telling people to harass an abuse members of the trump administration wherever they saw them was actually elected members of the democrat. Party all it was cowan's and punks like miles. Taylor and alexander vincent. I mean truly pathetic.

And so so my not the insane. The colt of violence of people like madonna and depth and mortars but time in the great tradition of the reverend martin luther king for some widespread nationwide civil disobedience those fascists in the white house whether it's f- ouchi or the senile man who calls himself president they want to inject you with an experimental vaccine.

Don't Call People out -- Call Them In
"First of all thank you all for listening to me. I come to y'all because most black women don't go the klu klux klan rallies on purpose. I did because it was my job. I've monitored hate groups. But i really wanted to find out how people could hate strangers so much. Mostly i wanted to work for peace and justice but fortunately for me my mentor at the time was the legendary civil rights leader. Reverend ct period. Who'd been an aide to dr martin luther king and see ts to say when you ask people to give up hate the you need to be there for them when they do now the time. Ct set those words. I started muttering under my breath. Because you can't curse out a preacher you know. But if i didn't make any sistemi to me because if the clan hated black folks al's all right with hating them back sounded okay to me but then something happened. It became my job to help people who were leaving hate groups and then once i got the norm i couldn't hate him anymore and then i got confused. I'm a survivor. A racial violence rape and incest. And i needed to find another moral compass for my life's work and the conference had this schiff from hate to love and so that improbable journey is why i'm here to talk to you today. Because i really really want to build a culture and a world that invites people in instead of pushing them out is called a calling in culture
"martin luther king" Discussed on Kottke Ride Home
"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism <unk> believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.

Holtz steve spurrier and we know how that one so saving finished thirteen seventeen with the dolphins from oh five six before taking the alabama job the turned out to be pretty good for him and do whole finished with a three and ten record with the new york jets in nineteen seventy six interesting story. I read an ringer about college coaches going and getting an opportunity to coaching approach. It was like midway through the season with the jets. Wholesome like you know what man this this shifting from me. i'm a. I'm a college coach was born coach. College in the sooner the season is over a first chance i get. I'm getting the hell out of here. Then later on he was like you know what i'm gonna give it another shot because i've learned from my mistakes and now i know that i should have treated these guys like. Oh i don't know men. Is it a college kids and you know up. Give these guys a little bit more input into what we're doing but by that time his reputation in the nfl has been so tarnished that He was done with that. And of course. These spurrier was my washington snyder skins. He coached that team. From o-3 returning the coach south carolina. He just twelve and twenty signed him. Five years seventy five years thirty five million dollar contract and he couldn't wait to get out of that. Get on that gig. So i'll talk about that a little bit later on so we'll see but none of these guys has been asked successful. Spurrier holtz will save but other than saving holtz burger. I mean they hadn't had these success willing championships as urban meyer. Did but it's it's an interesting. It's an interesting experiment as a little flavor to jacksonville as a little flavor to next season's. Nfl schedule in season. So the wouldn't red flag about meyer.

You don't change your especially when you're fifty six and you have that type of winning and success now you can sit there and convince yourself that you know what i understand that. I'm not gonna have the success that i did in college. I understand. i'm not going to be willing. Eighty five percent a much football game. I understand that. I won't be having the ability to go ahead and do the recruiting and bringing the players that i really wanted to bring in. I know that. I know that there's a hard salary cap in the nfl. While i can spend fruitfully as much as i wanted to in college like a us Some perks shall we say to bring in some recruit from college. Even though that might be bending the rules of the ncaa just the bit so You know all of those things. Come into play. And like i said it's easy to say that now but when you jacksonville and your one is six. And he's a seems to be no end in sight is meyer. Who again will want close games. Go fucking nuts mentally and all that type of jerry west complex in terms of being able to handle stress. Is he going to be able to go ahead and continue to do what he's doing. He stepped down from ohio state. In december of twenty eight team the last time he's actually coached to game. He stepped down from the gig particularly because of health issues. He's been most of that season of pain on the sideline because of assist which caused him aggressive headaches throughout the year and then you have to suspend him for first three games of the twenty eighteen season for how before he handled multiple accounts of domestic violence involving assistant coach. Zac smith the guy was like well. You know he was a great guy. Who is father blah blah blah on loyalty and then the other guys upbeat numbers wife really. You're going to go down that route. I mean you late in columbus anymore where you'll have sycophants sitting there. S okay michigan. Beats of women by us. You know going to be flying in the nfl especially the way. They're cracking down on this stuff right now correctly. So so all of these things man. He's to let them be dealing with.

So even some of these guys are record is seventy four fifty eight. That could never do that. Shit seventy four fifty eight you doing. Well hell if you singing over five hundred damn good. So if he's going to be talking about losing his mind something like that. This is going to work your reminder. So how long does he. How long does he plan on coaching here. Eventually he's going to run ragged the men's fifty six years old. Eventually he's going to Know the personality he is. He's not built their vehicle meeting in an nfl coaching job. Seventy four fifty eight. Continue to a louis been if you're not mentally strong enough to deal with this kind of nonsense and how urban meyer is fifty six now. How long can he coach. How long does he want to coach. I mean we see guys like pete carroll and bill bella. Check bruce arians. They're all over sixty-five seem to be doing well. Carol is going to be seventy guy.

Won a bowling green young man at that time for seventeen seasons. He's taking a couple of years off and he's only fifty six years old. I mean he's still relatively a young guy who got into coaching. A wonder can. Shall we say for being a successful. As he was at the age that he was the worst record he's ever had in his coaching career. Is that florida. Two thousand and seven were physically. He shut down because the losing four and two thousand seven and then eight and five in twenty ten. I believe what year it was. I think it might have been t-boz last year. I think where he said he was going to retire. The pressure with too much of which is getting too much for them. These the the responsibilities a winning all the time so for my or maybe the fact that you know what. Jacksonville is not expected this catego- sixteen and win the championship. In the first couple of years maybe they'll take some of the Anxiety off of them but then again if you're sitting there three and eight three and eight. It's still going to be three and eight.
