Denver Coffee Shop Vandalized After Joke Offends Nonwhite Area Residents

From the press reports I’ve read you’d never know there’s a racial conflict element in this story, but there is.

Whites, Asians, and others who succeed in life earn money to buy historic properties in run-down neighborhoods.

That’s gentrification.

Nonwhites, especially blacks, don’t like it and call it out as racist against them.

CBS Local Denver

DENVER, Colo. (CBS4) — A coffee shop in Denver’s River North neighborhood was vandalized after posting a controversial sign.

The sign that was displayed outside the”ink! Coffee” shop at 2851 Larimer Street stated “Happily gentrifying the neighborhood since 2014.”

CBS4 received multiple calls, emails and messages about the sign in the days before the vandalism occurred.

Gentrification is a sensitive issue for many long-time residents struggling to stay in their homes as the cost to rent continues to rise.

When we asked people on Facebook what they thought about the sign, we got comments from one end of the spectrum to the other.

“Pretty insensitive, but it’s not the end of the world. Not gonna get all worked up about it,” one person wrote.

“At least they are not in denial about it,” another said.

“Very poor taste,” someone else commented.

“Free speech. Everyone has a threshold where they are offended or take it stride,” another wrote. “Sadly though, if you know the definition of gentrification, that is exactly what has happened to Denver, and the surrounding areas.”

You can join the conversation here.

On Wednesday, the coffee shop issued a public apology on Twitter. It did not go over well with many people.

It’s not that simple. Y’all need to be shut down. Gentrification isn’t and never has been a joke. It literally displaces people, changes their lives often in the worst ways. Destroys communities and cultures that accompany them. I could go on… pic.twitter.com/fdhcY3z0jD

Of course not, your sense of entitlement to displace the poor, for your mediocre coffee, was just soooo blinding.

“Joke”? So, somebody at your company thought this was funny? And at least one other person had to agree and approve that, so they thought it was funny? That’s not funny

This is the “I’m sorry you feel that way” of corporate apologies

DOES THE WRITING ON THE WALL ACTUALLY SAY “WHITE COFFEE?” I ASSUME THAT’S THE WORK OF VANDALS.

The founder of ink! Coffee later issued the following statement:

“I have been following the comments on social media and listening to our customers, and I want you to know that I hear you. I have used the last 24 hours to listen to your perspectives, and to better educate myself on gentrification. I am embarrassed to say that I did not fully appreciate the very real and troubling issue of gentrification, and I want to sincerely apologize to those who understand firsthand the hardship and cultural consequences that gentrification has caused in the Five Points neighborhood, throughout the City and County of Denver and in communities throughout our state.

“When our advertising firm presented this campaign to us, I interpreted it as taking pride in being part of a dynamic, evolving community that is inclusive of people of all races, ethnicities, religions and gender identities. I recognize now that we had a blind spot to other legitimate interpretations. I sincerely apologize – absolutely and unequivocally. Over the coming weeks and months, I will continue to educate myself and my colleagues about this issue, and we will find ways to demonstrate the depths of our contrition by taking meaningful steps to support our local community and its residents.”

What a weak spine the owner of the coffee shop has. That apology may be politically correct, but it stinks.

If the Nogs don’t want the shop around, all they have to do is to begin patronizing it in large numbers. The presence of large numbers of blacks always drives whites away. The employees would also be likely to quit since blacks don’t tip.

Diversity is great, say liberals. Until THEY have to live with it.

GQ: It’s Your ‘Civic Duty’ to Ruin Thanksgiving for Your Trump-Supporting Family Members

Surprise!

The GQ writer suggesting that YOU ruin your family’s thanksgiving is Jewish.

What’s wrong with these people? Are they so unhappy that they’re determined that everyone else on the planet join them in their misery?

There’s no need to answer. We know the score.

Fox News Insider

A piece in GQ Magazine calls on readers to make Thanksgiving Day “hell” for any relatives who support President Donald Trump.

“It’s time to ruin your Trump-supporting family’s Thanksgiving—for America!” Joe Berkowitz wrote.

“If you’re headed home to a household that still thinks a sex-offending game show host in rapid cognitive decline was the best choice for a president, it is your civic duty to filibuster Thanksgiving,” he argued.

He offered several suggestions for how to ruin Thanksgiving dinner, including not showing up, showing up and being a jerk and going “scorched earth.”

Berkowitz wrote that this isn’t just about spite, but potentially “chipping away” at Trump’s base.

“If your family is unmoved after a ruined Thanksgiving, though, that’s fine too. After all, next year’s Thanksgiving falls just after the 2018 midterms, and if your true believer parents still feel the way they do now, you might ruin their holiday in another way,” he concluded.

According to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, 58 percent of people are dreading having to talk politics around the dinner table. Just 31 percent said they were eager to discuss the latest news with family and friends, while 11 percent are unsure.

GQ isn’t the only publication associating President Trump with conflict. Politico claims that Trump ruined Thanksgiving for everyone in a ridiculous article.

But a new study by economists Keith Chen of UCLA and Ryne Rohla of Washington State University seems to have proved at least one point conclusively: Trump really did ruin Thanksgiving.

With the help of data-tracking service SafeGraph, Chen and Rohla traced the movements of more than 10 million Americans across the past two Thanksgiving holidays. They focused specifically on people who traveled from Republican-leaning areas to Democratic-leaning areas and vice versa, and found that politically divided families spent on average 20 to 30 minutes less time around the dinner table in 2016 than they did in 2015. That added up to a loss of 62 million person-hours of Thanksgiving time across the country—and specifically, the authors estimated, a loss of “27 million person-hours of cross-partisan Thanksgiving discourse.”

Only one candidate, however, could inflame tensions on both sides by the sheer mention of his name alone. With emotions running the gamut from elation to dread in the first few weeks after his shocking victory, Trump seems to have given many people a reason to avoid breaking bread with their political opposites.

Obviously, the only solution to all of this division is to break up the United States into smaller political units. I haven’t given it much thought but the city-state form of political organization might work for me.

Otherwise, I suppose that if you’re alt-right, alt-light, or even tradtional conservative, you’ll just have to bite your tongue and let liberals destroy what’s left of the country.

Charlottesville Mayor (((Mike Signer))) Under Fire by the Local Citizenry

JEWISH DEMOCRAT MAYOR OF CHARLOTTESVILLE, MIKE SIGNER.

Mayor Mike Signer wanted violence at the August 12 Unite the Right rally in his city. He got it.

Now, he’s ducking responsibility, blaming the bad stuff on his black police chief.

It’s encouraging that the locals aren’t buying Signers line of nonsense.

NBC29

Community members say Mike Signer may be more concerned about his image than accepting responsibility for the city’s failures during the Unite the Right rally on Saturday, August 12.

NBC29 spoke with elected officials, people inside City Hall, and others about the mayor: They all said Signer’s lengthy Facebook post on Thursday, his handling of Monday’s chaotic City Council meeting, and other events were “absolutely improper.”

Former Blue Ribbon Commission on Race, Monuments, and Public Spaces Chair Don Gathers, attorney Jeffrey E. Fogel, and others are concerned about the mayor’s finger pointing.

“Even things he may not be directly responsible for, he’s the mayor of this town and he needs to take ownership for it,” Gathers said.

“It was all about him. It was all about, ‘I’m not responsible for anything and don’t ever look at me,’” said. Fogel.

Both men were at Monday’s public meeting, where things got heated and out of hand: “It was like, how could you possibly? And of course, he is responsible for drawing the agenda. None of the other councilors have that responsibility,” said the attorney.

Gathers said just seeing the mayor walk out of that council meeting leaves a sour taste in everyone’s mouth.

Signer’s Facebook statement placed blame for the city’s lack of preparedness to the Unite the Right rally at Emancipation Park squarely on City Manager Maurice Jones and Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas:

The Police Chief reports to the City Manager, who has total operational authority over operations like the ones on August 12. The Mayor and Council have no operational role.

POLICE CHIEF AL THOMAS.

CITY MANAGER MAURICE JONES.

That message went out roughly 30 minutes before a closed session of the Charlottesville City Council. Some councilors said they were unaware of the mayor’s post going into that meeting.

“What people feel like leadership looks like doesn’t involve photo ops or sound bites, and it certainly doesn’t involve throwing some of your town administrators under the bus,” Gathers said.

“This Facebook was merely to put out there to say, ‘I’m not responsible for anything, I’m just the mayor. We have no operational control of the city.’ Now that’s a ridiculous statement on his part,” said Fogel.

Former Charlottesville City Councilor Dede Smith, who was unseated by Signer, said she’s disappointed with what she’s seeing: “Now in this latest tragedy to see the level of self-promotion that is going on, I think it is time to reflect and question whether or not this is a good fit,” she said.

Smith and others say it’s time for healing, reviewing and moving forward as one.

“It’s such a time for leadership, and we’re just not seeing it,” said the former councilor.

NBC29 reached out to Mayor Signer for comment, and have not heard back.

Wow! A Jewish mayor is trying to shift the blame onto the shoulders of two blacks. That may not work. What would be the ideal outcome is if the voters fired all three of them and got white men to replace them.

How racist of me to suggest that. Right? Wrong, Jews and blacks had their chance. Now give white men a chance. I’ll bet they’ll do better.

Stefan Molyneux Exposes Charlottesville Facts You May Not Know (Video)

Molyneux defends the Unite the Right rally that ended in violence and death. Stefan isn’t going to turn the Antifa from thugs into defenders of the First Amendment. His half hour talk is aimed at normies who are opposed to White Nationalism. He structures his talk around the importance of freedom of speech. Basically, he’s saying that we have a right to be heard, and if we are shut down, that’s the end of civilization.

Molyneux may not be one of us, but he’s our most articulate defender. This video gained over 200,000 view in a day.

I’m a white nationalist.

Can someone explain to me why European peoples have to open their borders to rest of the world?

Can someone explain why it is “wrongthink” if I believe that “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” -It seems to me every ethnic group should feel this way about their own people.

What is the purpose or goal of multiculturalism? Is it to create a nation of mixed ethnicities and faiths? I don’t see any good reason to mix ethnicities together, I believe that diversity (especially when forced) leads to conflict.

Two Nonwhite Hooters Girls Brawl at Work, Charged with Disorderly Conduct

A black Hooters girl? In a fight with a Latina Hooters girl?

This must be a joke.

Daily Mail

Two Hooters waitresses have been busted in a workplace dispute.

Sarah Rivera, 25, was charged with disorderly conduct after police broke up the catfight at the Hooters in the Chicago suburb of Oak Lawn, Illinois, where she was arrested and booked in her low-cut uniform.

Also arrested on the scene was 24-year old Debreca L Green, who works at the same franchise.

Green was also charged with disorderly conduct in the incident, according to police records.

Both women were released on $120 bond pending court dates next month.

Further information about the cause of the fight was not immediately available.

An Oak Lawn Police department spokesman and a manager at the Hooters reached by phone said they did not know the circumstances of the incident and were unable to comment.

The Hooters manager would also not comment when asked if Green and Rivera were still employed at the location.

Well, that push for diversity at Hooters means a couple of things. For one, you can look like a sh*t stain on underwear and still be a Hooters girl. Standards are clearly out the window.

For another, do gentlemen really want to eat food served by “ladies” such as these???!!!

Trump Advisor Stephen Miller DESTROYS CNN’s Jim Acosta at Press Briefing

Verbal conflict arose at a White House briefing today. A CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, was called “ignorant” and “foolish” by Stephen Miller, President Donald Trump’s nationalist adviser and speech writer. Miller, who is Jewish, is the architect of Trump’s plan to cut legal immigration in half.

CNN’s Acosta, whose roots lie outside the U.S. in Cuba, accused President Trump of being a racist for proposing an immigration plan that requires immigrants to speak English.

This is probably the most widely covered story today.
