Video Podcast – The Remarkably bad George Floyd Incident

by: Brent Smith

There’s absolutely nothing good about this whole mess in Minneapolis. I mean nothing.

Floyd apparently paid for a meal at a local restaurant with a counterfeit $20 bill.
We’ll likely never find out whether he knew the 20 was fake.

Maybe he did. So what?

By now, everyone has seen the video. Two cops handcuff Floyd at, I guess his vehicle. Then they lead him over to the police SUV. Floyd trips on the curb and falls to the pavement. The cops drag him to the driver’s side of their SUV and one cop nonchalantly puts his knee on the back of Floyds neck. You can here Floyd begging for his life. He wasn’t struggling – nothing.

And again – over what? A petty property crime?

Bad deal man. So I’ll give my thoughts at the end.

Then come the riots, vandalism, destruction of property, burning of buildings and looting. Throwing crap at other cops. read more

A Force Fed Call to Prayer

A good portion of America is still hopelessly stuck at home. Maybe you’re a single Mom or Dad, already going crazy, with maybe a house full of children who would normally be in school. You love your family – your children, but honestly, this stay at home thing is wearing a bit thin.

And I forgot to mention – you’re a leftist and an atheist – maybe living in say … Minneapolis.

And then, imagine if you will, this begins.

At 5:15 in the morning, as you and your entire family are sound asleep, you are abruptly awakened by the droning of a Christian Minister and the shriek of a Church choir. And for 3 to 5 minutes, 5 times a day, every day – at sunrise (pre-dawn) midday, afternoon, sunset, and night, this goes on.

You have to endure shouting and singing about how great God is.

How is this happening? I’m trapped at home having to endure this day in and day out.

You’re an atheist! Heck, even the sight of a religious symbol like a cross displayed in a public place gives you the heebie geebies! And now your local government officials – the Mayor and city council – leftists just like you, or so you thought, have given special permission to these bible thumpers to broadcast their myopic message, via loudspeakers, all over the city? read more

President Donald Trump’s campaign is threatening a lawsuit after Minneapolis city leaders charged it $530,000 for security at an event scheduled for Thursday—26 times the amount it billed former president Barack Obama for a 2009 rally.

Mayor Jacob Frey said in September that Trump’s behavior is “reprehensible” and that his “message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” according to the Star Tribune. The Trump campaign accused Frey of “abusing the power of his office” and “conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security.” read more

Somali Immigrants Make Demands of Amazon

Despite being THE online powerhouse and a great place to find virtually anything, Amazon is apparently not the best place to work, at least for some.

I’m sure many of us have read and heard multiple accounts of employees anonymously complaining of working conditions and “unreasonable” production demands.

But it seems none more than the Muslim community.

Adherent Muslims are required to pray five times a day, every day. If anyone is interested, the five prayers are as follows:

Fajr – the dawn prayer.
Dhuhr – the noon prayer.
Asr – the afternoon prayer.
Maghrib – the sunset prayer.
Isha’a – the night prayer.

According to Vox.com, Amazon warehouse workers get two 15-minute breaks and one 30-minute break each shift, per federal regulation. Considering how often Muslims must pray, this doesn’t give them anytime to do anything else. So they have to make a choice. Or do they? read more

Minnesota’s Somali Problem

from Creeping Sharia:

Minnesota’s “Little Mogadishu” celebrated at Reason.com

Not all that many years ago, the worst things you could say about Minneapolis were that it was very cold in the winter and, for an American city of its size, it was somewhat dull. On the plus side, this traditionally Scandinavian-American burg was a model of safety and cleanliness.

Well, that’s ancient history. Minneapolis is now the world’s #2 capital of Somali Muslims. (#1 is Mogadishu.) In the Somali community, unemployment and welfare dependency rates are high. The city is a major recruiting center for ISIS. At least a couple of ISIS recruits have used taxpayer-funded student loans to fly to the Middle East to become jihadists; many other local Somalis are suspected of wiring welfare cash to terrorist groups. Violent crime is epidemic: as recently as December 13, a Somali Muslim immigrant stabbed a Minneapolis woman no fewer than fourteen times on her way home from work. read more
