PC Run Amok: City Cancels Columbus Day Despite Protests from Italians

Chris Columbus got the immigration ball rolling in the Americas.

So what’s the problem?

Oh, they were WHITE immigrants.

The wops aren’t taking this news well, and who could blame them?

Press Herald

Maine’s largest city will no longer celebrate Columbus Day as a municipal holiday.

The Portland City Council voted unanimously Monday to designate the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The vote came after nearly an hour of public comment.

Portland became the latest municipality in Maine to recognize indigenous people instead of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, who arrived in the New World on Oct. 12, 1492. Belfast was the first to make the switch in 2015, Bangor did so last month and Orono followed suit last week. Later Monday night, the Brunswick Town Council voted 8-1 to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1937 and will continue to be.

While the initiatives in Belfast and Bangor saw no public opposition, Italian-Americans, including representatives of the Italian Heritage Center, opposed the proposal in Portland. They said Columbus Day is less a celebration about one individual and more a celebration of Italian-American heritage.

“This is like a slap in the face to the Italians who reside here,” said Marianne Dalfonso Reali, a past president of the heritage center, which has a statue of Columbus in its lobby in Portland.

Steve Caminiti, who grew up in Portland and now lives in Falmouth, said he didn’t want to argue about whether Columbus was a good man or a bad man. Instead, he highlighted the fact that Portland, and America in general, is a nation of immigrants.

“We look at that as something that celebrates our contribution to the city of Portland and the country overall,” Caminiti said. “We understand all of these things are tainted in history.”

But others see a darker side of history – one that is rarely taught in history books.

Maulian Dana Smith, a member of the Penobscot Nation, said Columbus committed heinous crimes, including genocide. She noted how natives literally had their native language beaten out of them.

“You can’t ask us to gloss over that history just so people can have a day off,” Smith said.

Portland resident Jenn Sorkin was more blunt.

Columbus was “a murderer,” Sorkin said. “He’s a rapist. He’s an enslaver. If he were alive today there is no doubt he would be on death row. It’s absolute nonsense.”

Sorkin? Isn’t that a Jewish name?

We can’t have an article without quoting a Jew agitator, now can we?

Western Europeans first came to the Portland peninsula back in the 1600s, when it was a part of Falmouth. However, little is known about the Wabanakis who once called this region “Aucocisco.” Historians have estimated 90 percent of them were killed by disease brought by early explorers and by warfare after settlers arrived in full force.

City Councilor Spencer Thibodeau seemed to sum up the view of the council when he said the proposal was about including indigenous people in the historical discussion, rather than excluding Italian-Americans.

“(It’s) more of an opportunity to celebrate this day as one chooses,” Thibodeau said. “That is what I think is most powerful about it.”

Supporters of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, who noted that Columbus never set foot in America, called the council action a first step in correcting history books, but it’s unclear how it will affect students in Portland.

Superintendent Xavier Botana said changing the school calendar would require a vote of the school board, which has not discussed the issue. And the district does not prescribe lesson plans for Columbus Day, Botana said.

“It is important to note that our teachers teach about the impact of colonization on Native American tribes, including Maine Native Americans, throughout the social studies curriculum in an age-appropriate manner,” he said in an email.

“We also teach about the interplay of enduring themes such as exploration and discovery, economic expansionism, immigration, colonialism, genocide and cultural genocide, among other concepts associated with the arrival of Europeans in the Americas,” he said.

Recognizing indigenous people on Columbus Day is a growing trend across the U.S. A few states – Alaska, Oregon, South Dakota and Vermont – don’t recognize Columbus Day.

A bill to make Indigenous Peoples’ Day a state holiday did not advance in the Legislature this year.

The proposal was sponsored by Councilor Pious Ali, who participated in a workshop this year with the Maine-Wabanaki REACH program, which aims to improve the health and well-being of Wabanakis.

I hate to see whites participating in soft white genocide. The erasure of explorers from history, all of whom were white, is intended to be demoralizing, and it is.

Antifa Violence erupts at anti-white nationalist rally in Portland

ANTI-WHITE “STOP THE HATE” MARCH GETS UNDERWAY.

I had to spend 15 minutes looking for info on who was responsible for the violence. The mainstream media just won’t say. I’m surprised that the Portland police were allowed to Tweet out the truth.

MSN

PORTLAND — Violence broke out between opposing groups at an anti-white nationalist rally in Portland that left at least one police officer injured, CBS affiliate KOIN-TV reports.

Police made several arrests in the city’s downtown area as two groups faced off over different views on white nationalism.

The Portland Police Department tweeted that marchers and residents should clear the area for their own safety, adding that officers reported protesters attacking photographers and that projectiles were thrown at officers. They said several arrests were made and at least one officer was injured.

An opposition group held its own protest Sunday which was scheduled for around 2 p.m. local time but instead started around 12:30 p.m.

“We will be there with flags,” Joey Gibson of the Patriot Prayer Group said.

Officials said Friday that Portland Stands United Against Hate has a permit. It is not clear if Patriot Prayer does.

Authorities had previously announced a heightened police presence due to past violence between the opposition groups.

Mayor Ted Wheeler warned protesters that “illegal behavior is unacceptable.”

“We will not tolerate acts of violence. We will not tolerate vandalism. We will not tolerate criminal behavior,” Wheeler said.

Unlike earlier in the year, Portland is taking steps to protect Trump supporters, Christians, and pro-white citizens from violent attacks.

That’s progress.

Street War in Portland as Antifa Attack Trump Supporters While Police Stand Down

UPDATED WITH THIS TWITTER VIDEO:

Oregon Live

Dueling protests made their way through downtown Portland Sunday afternoon, with a few violent altercations but little police involvement. Three people were arrested on disorderly conduct charges.

The protests began about 2 p.m. at Salmon Street Springs in Tom McCall Waterfront Park, with about 150 supporters of President Trump waving American flags and wearing red Make America Great Again caps.

Joey Gibson, leader of the conservative Patriot Prayer movement and organizer of the rally, said the aim of the march was to promote “freedom and tolerance for people who think differently.”

But nearby, anti-fascist protesters in similar numbers characterized the Patriot Prayer group as white supremacists, chanting, “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.” Many wore black bandanas to cover their faces and at one point gathered in a smaller group to burn an American flag.

ANTIFA LEARNS A LESSON.

Man Who Allegedly Raped Oregon Woman Had Previous ICE Detainer, 13 Deportations

SERGIO JOSE MARTINEZ. ALLEGEDLY RAPED TWO WOMEN IN ONE DAY.

Well, this friendly looking Obama dreamer sure appears to have a huge percentage of Negroid genes. Sergio combines the black lack of self control with the meanness of the Mestizo.

He may look dumb, but he’s smart enough to reside in Oregon, which is a so-called sanctuary state, one of the most liberal in the nation.

It’s an absolute outrage that this beaner is in the USA. It’s even more outrageous that Oregon is going to be protecting this filthy rapist.

Daily Caller

The man accused of a brutal sexual assault of an Oregon woman is a “serial immigration violator” who was previously released from the Multnomah County Jail despite a formal detention request, federal officials confirmed Friday.

Sergio Jose Martinez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, had been deported at least 13 times since 2008, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Virginia Kice confirmed to Portland’s KATU2. Martinez, 31, was also the subject of an ICE detainer request placed Dec. 7, 2016 with the Multnomah County Jail, where he was being held on local charges.

Because Oregon law prohibits police from using agency resources to enforce immigration law, jail officials released Martinez the following day without notifying ICE.

“ICE last encountered Mr. Martinez Dec. 7, 2016, at the Multnomah County Jail and lodged an immigration detainer against him at that time requesting that the agency be notified prior to his release,” Kice said in a statement. “However, despite the detainer, local authorities released Mr. Martinez back into the community the following day without providing any notification to ICE.”

Martinez is accused of two separate attacks against women in Portland on Monday, reports local CBS affiliate KOIN. Police say Martinez first broke into the apartment of a 65-year-old woman, bound her hands and feet with scarves, and proceeded to sexually assault her.

Later that day, he confronted a woman in a parking garage with a knife and threatened to kill her. Police suspect that Martinez was attempting to kidnap the woman as she left work.

As KOIN reports, Martinez has a lengthy criminal history in Oregon and California. He has been arrested at least 20 times for offenses ranging from burglary and drug possession to auto theft and hit and run, according to police records. Along with local charges, Martinez has been deported back to Mexico on several occasions, most recently on Nov. 2, 2016.

Oregon has for many years been one of the nation’s most restrictive states when it comes to allowing local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. A 1986 law prevents police from using any resources to arrest or detain people whose “only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.” The Oregon legislature passed a law in late June that expands that prohibition to all “public bodies” within the state.

Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) policy prevents the agency from honoring ICE detainers, which are administrative requests to hold a criminal alien for up to 48 hours so ICE officers can take the suspect into custody. MCSO only holds suspects for immigration agents if they are subject to a federal arrest warrant signed by a judge or magistrate.

Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese explained in a September 2016 statement that MCSO policy is determined by Oregon law and a 2014 federal court decision in Miranda-Olivares v. Clackamas County, Oregon. In that case, magistrate Judge Janice Stewart ruled that holding illegal alien based on an ICE detainer is a violation of the Fourth Amendment if the detention request is not backed by a federal arrest warrant.

ICE has lodged another detainer against Martinez, reports The Oregonian.

Enough stories like this one permeated the filter of silence that the big media has placed around Mestizo criminality. That’s why we elected Donald Trump and we keep pushing for the wall.

This CNN sketch of the wall must have been deliberately made to look unattractive.

Saudi Student Arrested for Hit-and-Run That Killed White Teen is Wanted Fugitive After Skipping Out on Bail

ABDULRAHMAN SAMEER NOORAH. WHERE THE HELL IS HE?

If you see the sand nigger above, please call your local police department and tell them that you’ve seen the Saudi wanted for hit and run in Portland, Oregon. Demand that they come and hold him for Oregon authorities.

Unless he’s been able to leave the U.S., which isn’t that hard to do actually, he’s still in the country, probably holed up with some fellow Saudi students somewhere.

Fox News

A young Saudi national facing charges stemming from a fatal hit-and-run incident in Oregon in 2016 removed a court’s monitoring device last week and fled.

Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah, 21, was arrested last August and indicted for first-degree manslaughter, hit-and-run, reckless endangerment and reckless driving after allegedly killing 15-year-old Fallon Smart in Portland.

However, on Sept. 11, 2016 – what would have marked Fallon’s 16th birthday – Noorah’s $100,000 bond was posted by the consulate of Saudi Arabia, according to court records. Earlier this month, police say Noorah removed his monitoring device bracelet and his current whereabouts are now unknown.

He is depicted as being Saudi Arabian, 150 pounds and 6 feet tall and was last seen near the Southeast 106th Avenue and Division of Portland. Investigators are said to be concerned that Noorah poses mental health issues and are offering a reward for information leading to his whereabouts.

Noorah, a Saudi national who had been in Oregon since 2014 and enrolled at Portland Community College, was awaiting trial on charges that he struck and killed the young teenage girl while speeding down Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard, before running and later returning to the scene. Her relatives have called the latest development in the case as having broken “(their) hearts again.”

Shane Smart, Fallon’s uncle, expressed his anger in a Facebook post.

“From Day 1, our family objected to a bail because of things known about Abdulrahman Noorah that made us believe he was a flight risk,” Shane Smart wrote on Facebook. “The deputy district attorney representing the state’s case against Abdulrahman Noorah expressed our objection of allowing a bail and house arrest to the presiding Judge.”

Local reports also unveiled last week that Noorah was already considered to be a high flight risk, but authorities had no power to prevent him from fleeing due to Oregon bail legislation and the entanglement of a foreign government.

The Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles, which reportedly paid the bail and hired two prominent criminal defense lawyers to represent him, has yet to comment on the matter.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has on several occasions made bail for its nationals – including for a man accused of rape in Utah in 2015, who also fled and was subsequently convicted, and for a Missouri resident in 2013 who was accused but later acquitted of murdering a bar owner. That same year the government put up the $5 million bail for a Saudi princess charged with human trafficking in California, yet those charges, too, were let go.

Patch reports that the fugitive dune coon is a really bad guy who was driving with a suspended license. He had 18 tickets in the 18 months prior to his running down Fallon. He was also speeding and driving recklessly when he hit the poor girl.

Here are three photos of Fallon. May she never be forgotten and may her murderer be brought to justice.

14 Leftist Scum Arrested at Portland Trump Free Speech Rally

PORTLAND ANTIFA.

Portland, Oregon police were pelted with objects by leftists protesting a Donald Trump free speech rally on Sunday.

The police were present to keep the leftist antifa from clashing with Trump supporters. No Trump supporters or officers were reported hurt by the violence initiated by the left.

Salt-of-the-earth Americans who support President Trump just want to be left alone to enjoy each other’s company at rallies like the Sunday event, but the left has repeatedly disrupted these events in the past.

CNN

Portland, Oregon (CNN)At least 14 people were arrested on Sunday amid competing protests in Portland, Oregon, over a tangled web of emotions to arise from a deadly commuter train stabbing in May.

Hundreds of supporters of US President Donald Trump converged on Terry D. Schrunk Plaza for an event billed as a “Trump Free Speech” rally. They were slightly outnumbered by a mixed assemblage of counterprotesters across the street who viewed the free speech rally as an implicit endorsement of racism given its close timing to the racially charged stabbing.

The groups were separated by a wall of officers, heavily armed and wearing protective body armor, from local and federal police agencies.

What began as a tense exchange of name-calling and profane insults took a turn when counterdemonstrators began throwing glass bottles, bricks and balloons of “foul-smelling liquid” at officers, Portland police said. Officers used pepper spray to push back the counterdemonstrators and closed the park where they had gathered, threatening to arrest anyone who remained.

Portland police did not indicate which side those arrested belonged to. CNN crews on the scene observed that most of the arrests were concentrated in the area of counterdemonstrators.

Three of the 14 arrested were given citations by federal officers and released, according to a statement from the Portland police department.

Of the other 11, most face charges of disorderly conduct, police said. Other charges against various protesters included carrying a concealed weapon, interfering with a peace officer and harassment, the police statement said.

The rallies came in the wake of the stabbing deaths on May 26 of Ricky Best, 53, and Taliesin Namkai-Meche, 23, as they tried to defend two Muslim women from what police described as a barrage of hate speech.

Suspect Jeremy Joseph Christian raised the free speech issue in his arraignment last week.

“Get out if you don’t like free speech!” he shouted as he entered the courtroom on Tuesday. “You call it terrorism; I call it patriotism. Die.”

Anti-facists have become a recurring presence at events testing the limits of free speech. They were blamed for riots that led to the cancellation of conservative firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos’ scheduled talk at The University of California, Berkeley, and have shown up at events featuring Ann Coulter.

They tend to equate such events with fascism and Nazis, messaging that was evident in signs declaring “No more Nazis.”

On each side Sunday, protesters carried signs reflecting a variety of causes. Counterdemonstrators chanted expletive-ridden slogans denouncing Trump. They carried signs proclaiming “Supporters of Trump are traitors to America” and “Freedom ends where harm begins.”

Across the street, Trump supporters waved “Make America Great Again” signs and wore the corresponding red hats.

In addition to the arrests, a large pickup truck flying two large American flags cruised past hundreds of anti-fascist protesters and honked its horn. Several people in the group ran up to the truck and ripped out the flags, bringing them into the crowd as others applauded. Others threw multiple large water bottles, sticks and other projectiles at the truck, which then sped away.

PATRIOTIC AMERICANS SHOWED SUPPORT FOR THEIR PRESIDENT.

The Portland Stabbings Psy Op Just Got Even More Bizarre

MICAH DAVID-COLE FLETCHER. THE JEW IS STRONG IN THIS ONE.

Hollywood special effects guys can do wonders in pasting on fake scars. Is that what we’re seeing in the photo above?

The mythologizing of the antiracist hero willing to risk his life to save a brown turd from a few mean words has reached a new level of absurdity.

WHO WRITES THE SCRIPT FOR THIS SH*T?

It’s reasonable to speculate that Micah’s words are intended to get some poor white sap killed. The message is garbled, however. He’s also intending to take the focus off the fact that the alleged stabber is a Jew like him–a Jew who is NOT the white supremacist that every media outlet is reporting him to be.

Portland stabbing survivor says city has “white savior complex”

PORTLAND, Ore. — A man who was stabbed in the neck while trying to stop a man from shouting anti-Muslim insults at two young women on a Portland, Oregon, light-rail train said Wednesday that the city should focus on the girls, not him.

An emotional Micah Fletcher said in a six-minute video on his Facebook page that Portland has a “white savior complex” and residents are heaping praise on him, but the real victims are the women. He says they must be traumatized from being targets of hate and from the deaths of two other men who also tried to intervene Friday.

Fletcher urged people to donate money to a fundraising campaign for the girls.

“We need to remember that this is about them,” Fletcher said. “This is about those little girls.”

Jeremy Joseph Christian is accused of fatally stabbing Ricky Best, 53, and Taliesin Namkai-Meche, 23. Prosecutors say he attacked them after they confronted him for harassing two young black women, one of whom wore a Muslim head covering.

Fletcher, a 21-year-old student at Portland State University and a poet, also stood up to Christian. Music students and staff at PSU tell CBS affiliate KOIN they have admired Micah Fletcher since he started taking classes there in the fall.

One of Fletcher’s professors, Joel Bluestone, told KOIN he is not surprised Fletcher stood up to help.

“He did it because it’s just the right thing to do and he’s just that type of person. I mean, two teenage girls are getting harrassed. You just step up. It’s the right thing to do,” he said. “He’s that type of person, definitely, 120 percent that type of person.”

Fellow student Josh Gianola also said he wasn’t surprised about what Micah did.

“It’s amazing and I think what everyone hopes that they would do in a situation like that, and he did it,” Gianola told KOIN. “It’s not surprising that he would stand up to hate in such a way. Of course, its devastating that that’s how it turned out but it’s not a surprise that he would stand up like that.”

Fletcher’s wound was within millimeters of being fatal, court documents say. He has been released from the hospital and attended Christian’s first court hearing, where a scar on his neck was visible.

Christian, 35, did not enter a plea Tuesday. His court-appointed attorney, Gregory Scholls, has not returned a call.

The narrative here is intended to push weak-minded white people to identify with browns, Muslims in particular. You start saying to yourself that “Yeah, I’ll stand up for a poor Muslim girl who’s being bullied. Yeah, I’ll be a hero. Yeah, I’m a good person. I’d do that.” And pretty soon your mind is to the point where your resistance to the reality of the Muslim threat has disappeared.

This crude propagandizing won’t work on you or me, but the sheeple will eat it up. I wonder how much longer they’re going to try to keep this fake news in the headlines.
