Testimony emerging from the grand jury investigating the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri seems to confirm the police officer’s claims of self-defense. The official coroner’s report reputedly points to a struggle over the police officer’s gun. But more facts need to be known over the controversial encounter that inflamed protests in the majority black town against the majority white police force.

Lack of hard facts did not deter Religious Left activists Jim Wallis and Cornel West from demonstrating and seeking their own arrests in Ferguson last week as part of a “weekend of resistance” ending with a carefully choreographed “Moral Monday” protest. They even confronted police officers to demand their “repentance” for Brown’s “murder” while kindly offering to take their confessions.

After “much confessing, praying, and singing” in a Ferguson church, Wallis and West, with about 200 others, “marched to the Ferguson police station that has been the headquarters for much brutality against the young black people in their community,” as Wallis recounted.

Demonstrators drew a white chalk outline of a body in front of police headquarters as a “memorial to Mike Brown and so many other young black men who have been shot and killed, their names read in a painful but powerful liturgy as we silently prayed,” in protest against the “kind of police violence that is undeniably racial in its implementation.” According to Wallis, “we repented those losses and pledged to hold police accountable for moving in new directions.”

Then Wallis and fellow activist clergy got more personal, confronting individual policemen blocking their path to join them in “repentance,” prompting Wallis to recall, “In all my previous arrests for peace or justice, I had never asked a police officer to join in repentance.” Evidently Wallis’s exchange with his targeted policeman was cordial, as he tells it, although he doesn’t say whether the officer repented on Wallis’s terms.

After their “repentance” demands, Wallis, West et al. moved forward to provoke arrest, which they successfully achieved, as Wallis is an old hand at getting arrested across over 40 years of protests. “Arrests were not made until protesters started bumping police officers’ shields and eventually forcing through the police skirmish line,” a police spokesman told The New York Times.

“As faith leaders we were, of course, treated very well,” Wallis admitted, but adding grimly, “In sharp contrast to the ways young black men are often treated in those same facilities.” But Ferguson “must now be transformed from a moment to a movement,” momentously declared Wallis, who specializes in generating movements. “Racial policing is a sin — against our brothers and sisters, against genuine American democracy, and finally against God,” Wallis explained. “Quite simply, this American sin must be repented of and turned around,” and the “American faith community cannot rest until that repentance is done.”

I say pull out all white law enforcement and let them police themselves.

Do you think it would help if they had more black cops? Or is there a problem with finding enough who can pass the tests, mentally, and honestly as well as physically?

This is not about COP's, this isn't even about race... its about power and revolution. It is about fundamentally changing a nation too embrace a whole new set of moral and ethical values... its about agitation and revolution... about taering down our Republic so it can be rebuilt in a new image.

Many of the groups protesting are not simply Black Activist groups ... an investigation of there pasts will reveal deep ties with the Communist Party or its affiliate socialist organizations... we are seeing the typical use of agitation used by Marxist to foment revolution... divide and conquer... spread heat and call for violence... create victims so you can create conflict and crisis... etc, etc, 

This man apparently has not read the Bible in regard to sin. No where in the Bible does it say that an innocent man who tried to protect his life commits sin for protecting his life. As for the alleged racial sins that black supremist leaders talk about, The Bible is silent. Even the rebuke of Aaron and Miriam because he had a Cushite wife (Cushites are of the E3b genetic phenotype and are native to Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Egypt and North Africa and are not black sub saharan black Africans) It was not a rebuke to Miriam and Aaron because of racism as the distortionist contend, but because they sought to displace the divinely appointed authority of Moses.  Solomon did not meet the queen of Sheba in a sexual liaison as many suppose, and Menelek is only a myth. Sheba or Saba has been uncovered by archaeologists in Yemen which is again a Caucasoid E3b phenotype known to us today as Yemen.

All the myths that corrupt clergy men and politically correct social engineers have tried to perpetuate about unifying and hybridizing the races are damnable lies. The Bible tells us plainly in I Cor 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples. (Greek-Typoi) : and they are written for our admonition upon whom the ends of the earth are come.

This means that the examples of Old Testament heroes and villains as well as the nation of Israel were a example and type of comparison of what is godly and what is wicked and destructive.

There are numerous passages of scripture that show that God did divide the genetic races of men, that he did expect the sons of Israel to maintain their cultural, religious and genetic identity and beware of the Nokrim which are genetically unrelated alien peoples. Even when Israelites did intermarry with related peoples, they were not members of the congregation of Israel until the 3rd generation or grand children. The Tower of Babel was condemned by God and Nimrod was condemned with it because he sought to create a hybrid one world order. God confounded that as he will confound the UN and Cultural Marxist social engineers.

No doubt all races of men are equally the creation of God and all are loved of him. People who have received Christ are united in a spiritual union despite race or nationality. But what the gospel did not say was that the nations were to be abolished, and humanity genetically hybridized. God did not make all men genetically equal. The Sub Saharan African has a genetic power three times as powerful as the R1b and I and J haplogroups of Europe and Caucasoid peoples of the Mideast, in effect that power snuffs out anything that breeds with that genetic type. Those who claim Christianity and condone global hybridization are in effect claiming that God made a mistake when he created the races. Beware, this belief is not Christian. The Christian God does not make mistakes.

Black supremist clergy men believe that it is a righteous thing that they breed out the white race and turn them into blacks, but racial extermination whether by bullets or by genetic engineering is still genocide, and genocide my friends is murder pure and simple. Men like Al Sharpton are the wolves in sheep's clothing that Christ warned us about. Those wolves do not have the right to define their version of what they view as the American sin. Murder is in their hearts, and this should be obvious to all rational people. We do not have much time. Satan is on the prowl, a great civilization, a great people, and ultimately the Christian faith is on the table. Spiritual brothers of any race are still brothers in Christ, and if Christ's love abides in you, then the extermination of any people should be an abomination.

 

As long as the $$$$$ keep coming in these so called religious people will keep up the racism.   Rev AL.. where are you.   Or are you too busy counting the loot.

Don't forget, they can make money of this scandal and the picture doesn't look to favorable, so they will keep on with the beat.

ALERT ALERT

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
