Blacklash: Anger At Democrats For Cringe Kneeling In African Garb
“Don’t treat Africans like we’re children.”
Black social media users hit out at Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic lawmakers Monday for again turning the death of George Floyd into a PR stunt.
Pelosi and a host of other Democrats got down on their knees and in an even more bizarre act, wore traditional African Kente garb while doing so.

It was all conveniently in the middle of a press briefing announcing a new ‘police reform’ bill that promises to ban chokeholds, set up a national database to track police ‘misconduct’, as well as prohibit certain no-knock warrants and a host of other measures.
There is very little chance of the bill going beyond the House.
But good show:

Chuck Schumer took some light reading with him:

Eight minutes IS a long time:
Watch from the very start of video, the woman behind Pelosi can't stay off her phone even for a few moments. Proves this is all a show! Nothing but symbolism over substance.
Right from the liberal playbook! https://t.co/ute7RO16md

Of course, putting on an African scarf and getting on your knees might be a white liberal elitist’s idea of showing “solidarity”, but to most, including black people it was just plain cringe:
“Don’t treat Africans like we’re children,” urged Author Obianuju Ekeocha, accusing Democrats of appropriating the garb as part of a desperate “show of non-racism.”
“These fabrics and these colorful things that we have within our culture and tradition, they all mean something to us. I know you look at us and you say, ‘Oh, Africans are so cute in all of your colorful dresses.’ Well, some of those dresses and patterns and colors and fabrics actually do mean something to us.” she added.
Imagine the pant-shitting that would unfold if Trump did this…
How is it not "cultural appropriation" for Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, & Jerrold Nadler to show up to the Capitol wearing West African "Kente Cloth"
Can you imagine if a Republican showed up in this for a publicity stunt?

Others noted that the more discerning black Democrats chose not to partake in the charade.
I am not sure what’s funnier, those ridiculous politicians wearing kente cloth or Cory Booker smartly opting out of that absurd performance.

This systemic racism will never end unless the DEMONRATS STOP talking & treating BLACK PEOPLE like CHILDREN.
They'll continue to hate white people until the Dems & leftist media start talking about crime & gangs in real terms Instead of pretending it isn't prevalent among their

If anyone can’t understand why Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and them dressed up like they’re trying to sneak into Wakanda is disrespectful and appropriative you have a great deal to learn. https://t.co/DGsKHCZNQT

Video: Shrieky Purple Haired Democrat Makes A Complete Fool Of Herself At FBI Whistleblower Hearing
Tries to identify FBI whistleblower as J6 Insurgency supporter by attributing someone else’s Twitter account to him… fails spectacularly
A Democrat made a complete fool of herself at yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee government weaponisation hearing in the House by attempting to pin some random person’s retweet on an FBI whistleblower as evidence that he supported a January 6th insurgency.
Sporting sprigs of purple dyed hair and waving around air quotes, shrieky Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez of California attempted to go all Perry Mason by uncovering former FBI agent Marcus Allen as a dangerous MAGA extremist sympathiser.
The problem was that her entire case rested on a retweet claiming ‘Nancy Pelosi staged January 6. Retweet if you agree,’ by someone with the same name, that isn’t the same Marcus Allen.
Sanchez took about 4 minutes to set up her devastating take down of Allen as a legitimate witness, asking him several poorly worded questions about whether he believes FBI agents should be impartial and apolitical.
Sanchez intended to get Allen to agree that obviously this should be the case and then hit him with the revelation that he retweeted a MAGA crackpot QAnon statement, or something.
When it came to the big unveil, Sanchez asked “Is your account @MarcusA97050645?” to which the former agent replied “That is absolutely not my account.”
Should’ve checked if there is more than one Marcus Allen… in the world.
Sanchez ridiculously carried on anyway, demanding that Allen answer for the tweet, as someone in the background quipped that the owner of the random Marcus Allen account “could be the football player.”
Allen hilariously repeatedly told Sanchez that the Twitter account in question is not his.
Two can play at this game…
Earlier, Allen had testified to the subcommittee that he was punished for forwarding information to his superiors that “questioned the official narrative of the events of January 6.”
“Despite my history of unblemished service to the United States, the FBI suspended my security clearance, accusing me of actually being disloyal to my country,” Allen said.
He added, “This outrageous and insulting accusation is based on unsubstantiated accusations that I hold ‘conspiratorial views’ regarding the events of January 6, 2021 and that I allegedly sympathize with criminal conduct. I do not. I was not in Washington DC on January 6, played no part in the events of January 6, and I condemn all criminal activity that occurred.”

Toronto ‘Anti-Capitalist’ Pay-When-You-Can Cafe Shuts Down After Just One Year
A Toronto cafe for anti-capitalists, “The Anarchist,” is permanently shuttering after just 12 months in business after following a “pay-when-you-can” business model.
The Anarchist describes itself as an “anti-capitalist, anti-colonial cafe, shop and radical community space on stolen land.”
“Unfortunately, the lack of generational wealth/seed capital from ethically bankrupt sources left me unable to weather the quiet winter season, or to grow in the ways needed to be sustainable longer-term,” the owner, Gabriel Sims-Fewer wrote last week.
The Anarchist, which opened for business in March of 2022, went viral last year, with internet users mocking the leftist cafe for charging high prices for its “speciality” coffee as well as selling “radical” art, books, clothing, jewellery, tote bags, and stickers. –Breitbart
“Fuck the rich. Fuck the police. Fuck the state. Fuck the colonial death camp we call “Canada”,” Gabriel wrote.
“It’s been an amazing experience, connecting with so many great community members, sparking desperately needed debate, raising the blood pressure of Conservatives (that includes you, “anarcho-capitalists” and “Libertarians”), fulfilling the dream of most service workers by not having to tolerate the presence of professional class-traitors (pigs and military), and experimenting with living and working in ways that don’t enthusiastically embrace the pure misanthropy of Capitalism,” he continued.
