Angela Rye: We have to get to the heart of the problem here. The heart of the problem is the way many of us were taught American history. American history is not all glorious. I love John to death, I couldn’t disagree more about George Washington. George Washington was a slave owner. We need to call slave owners out for what they are. Whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not. He wasn’t protecting my freedom. I wasn’t someone–my ancestors weren’t deemed human beings to him. To me, I don’t care if it’s a George Washington statue or a Thomas Jefferson statue or a Robert E. Lee statue, they all need to come down.

Behind the torch: Massachusetts resident identified in viral photo taken at white nationalist rally in Charlottesville -- Those who knew him say Colligan was reserved, friendly, funny; even politically progressive. One person knew him as a canvasser for progressive causes like reproductive rights as recently as 2016. … Another woman who lived in Boston, and preferred not to be named, said she met Colligan when he was canvassing around the city. To her, the mustached man seemed like a genuine forward-thinker who spoke to people about women's reproductive rights, environmental rights, and impoverished children in the global south. "I always saw him as a very left-leaning and progressive person," she said. "We would talk and share our frustrations about people who would waste their time and energy being anti-choice and homophobic and racist." …
Chilling CCTV from inside a Las Ramblas tobacconist captures the moment shoppers saw the Barcelona terror attack take place. The footage shows shoppers inside the tobacconist browsing for a few moments, before they realise something is happening outside. A few who are curious move towards the window to see what is going on, but people then start to panic. Seconds later, they would have seen the van careering down the street, ploughing into dozens of victims.

A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters.
The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow for the groups to ignite into exactly what happened.
“We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“
“The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”
At no point is the car that plowed into the crowd of protesters perused by police – there is not a police car in sight leading into the area, or out.
Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was on the scene in Charlottesville and he backs up the police officer’s claims.
“I can say, having been in Emancipation Park from early on that morning, that what I saw with my own two eyes confirms what this law enforcement source told us. At least from all visible appearances. We saw people coming out of that park who had head-wounds, who were bleeding from the head, people walking into that park with bats, with sticks — you saw what they were wearing — helmets, body armor, they had come — and this pertains to both sides — they had come to do damage.. you cannot help but notice from that video that police had been more pro-active, they could have potentially calmed this thing down to some degree.”

An Australian senator provoked an angry backlash from lawmakers by wearing a burqa in Parliament on Thursday as part of her campaign for a national ban on Islamic face covers. Pauline Hanson, leader of the anti-Muslim, anti-immigration One Nation minor party, sat wearing the black head-to-ankle garment for more than 10 minutes before taking it off as she rose to explain that she wanted such outfits banned on national security grounds. “There has been a large majority of Australians (who) wish to see the banning of the burqa,” said Hanson, an outspoken fan of US President Donald Trump, as senators objected. Attorney-General George Brandis drew applause when he said his government would not ban the burqa, and chastised Hanson for what he described as a stunt that offended Australia’s Muslim minority. “To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garb"

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Cali) continues to speak her mind and give a voice to the voiceless when it comes to the Trump administration’s toxic and divisive politics. Waters recently presided over a stage at Essence Festival in New Orleans and explained to the predominantly black crowd why she feels Trump isn’t fit for the presidency, reports The Huffington Post.
Waters also called out members of his cabinet for not being competent enough for their respective job titles. Auntie Maxine—as she is endearingly dubbed by the public—professed she feels POTUS should be impeached and pointed out that Ben Carson, the Housing and Urban Development secretary, isn’t qualified for his position either.
“He needs to go back to the hospital, back to the operating room,” she said of the retired neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate. “If he thinks, when he comes before [the House Committee on Financial Services], where I am the ranking member… and thinks that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his a** apart.”
The incident occurred just after midnight in Beihai City in south China.
Raheem Kassam, Breitbart London editor and frequent host of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, talked with Alex Marlow about his new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, on Tuesday’s edition of the show.
Kassam said that writing the book involved “a lot of old-school stuff: planning and getting on buses in foreign countries, and talking to people in different languages and trying to get your head around something that wasn’t a massive established paper trail already.”
“Funnily enough, the Swedish government doesn’t want to release their rape statistics and crime statistics,” he explained. “It doesn’t suit them very well to do so. You’ve got to do a lot of pushing, a lot of pressuring, a lot of translating, a hell of a lot of digging.”
Kassam said his journey took him from cities like Molenbeek in Europe to the United States. For example, one passage in No Go Zones discusses his discoveries at the Arab-American Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
“These places are open to the public, and yet you never hear about quite exactly what’s going on there,” he said. “What I found going on at the Arab-American Museum in the United States in 2017 was U.S. corporations sponsoring anti-U.S. government and anti-Israeli propaganda for public consumption. This is supposed to be a museum, and actually, what they were doing was propagandizing. There’s a lot of unique reporting in the book.”
Marlow praised Kassam’s groundbreaking work in documenting the untold story of “ghettoization of immigrants, particularly Muslim immigrants, throughout the Western world right now.” He further noted that Kassam has been called a liar for uncovering evidence that large groups of immigrants are not assimilating to their Western host societies.
“When you dig into their response – and I’ve had some of this already – when you push back against them, you find out exactly where they’re coming from,” said Kassam. “They end up in a position of saying, ‘Well, why should they assimilate anyway?’ If you get all of the nonsense arguments out of the way, that these places don’t exist and so and so forth, they end up at this position that is really the argument that we’re having nowadays. The truth is that the left doesn’t want to preserve history. It doesn’t want to preserve identity.”
“Look at what we saw over the course of the last couple of weeks with the statues being pulled down,” he continued. “Yesterday, I think, even, another Confederate statue was pulled down somewhere else in America. It seems reminiscent of countries that have been liberated from tyrants, are now being played out in America, now being appropriated by the political left for their little childish tantrums.”
The passer-by had a defiant message for the terrorists after the attack which killed 13 and injured more than 100
CNN commentator Symone Sanders accused President Trump of being a “white supremacist” Thursday night for his defense of Confederate statues and monuments.
“For a long time I never actually thought Donald Trump was a racist,” claimed Sanders, who was previously the national press secretary for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.
“Today when the president was tweeting again about culture and tripling down on these statues, something just clicked in my brain. It made me think that not only is Donald Trump a white supremacist sympathizer, I think he identifies with this notion of white supremacy, this notion of preservation of white culture,” she said. “And does that make him white supremacist? Yeah. Does that essentially make him a racist? I absolutely believe so.”
“And I have been hesitant to say that because I think words matter and they’re really important. I don’t like to throw the word racist around. I don’t like to throw lots of different kinds of words like that around,” Sanders claimed. “Today I’m at the point, much like the guest you just had, the President of the United States is a racist. We have put a white supremacist in the White House.”
The Associated Press, it’s worth noting, defines “white supremacy” as “The racist belief that whites are superior to justify political, economic and social suppression of nonwhite people and other minority groups.”
A car has hit pedestrians in the coastal town of Cambrils, some 100km from Barcelona, injuring at least six people. Five suspected terrorists were killed during a shootout with police, authorities said, adding that the attackers wore fake bomb belts.
“We have killed the alleged perpetrators,” Catalan police announced on Twitter. “We work on the hypothesis that the events of Cambrils respond to a terrorist attack.”
Authorities are now working to determine if the alleged terrorists wore explosive belts, police tweeted.
In few minutes we are going to make several controlled explosions in #Cambrils. If you hear detonations DO NOT be alarmed, are controlled!
A stabbing spree in Turku, south-west Finland, has left two people dead and six injured. Police have increased security across the country as they hunt what they described as "potentially several perpetrators". A body lying in the middle of the street in central Turku has been covered with a white cover, with several other bloodied victims treated on the ground. Another victim later died of their injuries in hospital, where several victims are being treated. One witness said a woman was stabbed while pushing her one-year-old baby in a pram. He described her as lying “immobile” in the street after the incident. Several of the injured are believed to be foreign visitors to the city, located around 100 miles west of the Finnish capital of Helsinki. No children were among those hurt. Police are hunting for "several possible perpetrators". They later said they had a single concrete suspect, a young male in custody. They brought down the attacker by shooting him a single time in the leg. Officials said they were currently unsure if the event is related to terrorism.

The same media that seems all too focused on the Charlottesville terrorist attack at the hands of a white supremacist, was completely and still is completely silent about the systematic attacks on Trump supporters throughout the entire country at the hands of left-wing terrorist groups such as Antifa and black lives matter.
Here is proof that the Charlottesville terrorist attack is nothing new in this country when it comes to politically motivated attacks against those you disagree with.
It is actually Trump supporters who have been the victims of more terrorist attacks at the hands of left-wing groups than the opposite. But the media loves to ignore what happens when Trump supporters are the ones being attacked.
