NFL star Michael Bennett has come out in solidarity with the movement for Black lives and the people of Palestine who are currently being oppressed by the authoritarian right-wing government of Israel. It takes a lot of courage to be an outspoken athlete, even moreso when you speak out against what's happening to the Palestinians. So this blog article will hopefully be one of the few that shows Bennett some support, because it's become way too easy to simply attack people who take morally strong and courageous positions.
I was compelled to write this article as a rebuttal against the notion that protesting hate speech from trolls and provocateurs is somehow a violation of free speech. I show that free speech is a two way street and will not be used as a political weapon to silence dissent. I am disturbed by the number of people on the Left who have fallen for this right-wing okie-doke.
Check out my article over at The Progressive Army's website titled 'The United States of Intolerance." A short-term victory has been achieved, but Trump said he'll "SEE YOU IN COURT!" Implying that this Muslim ban may reach the Supreme Court sometime in the future.
The Trump regime's actions on immigration have become an early rallying cry for the Left and progressive Independents in the first month he's been in office. The ban on Muslims is similar to the telltale scapegoating of 'the other' that one sees in the rise of all fascist dictatorships in history. We have to say in unison..."Not in Our Name!"
Jamie Rocymore returns to break down the murder of Emmett Till and why it still matters today. The revelation that Carolyn Bryant lied about what Till did is not so much news as much as it is confirmation and what Black America has felt for decades now. A truly disturbing story that provides a glimpse into how barbaric white supremacy can be and has been in the past.
