Hood Pranks! Not Funny, Dangerous and Racist?

 

Published on Jul 8, 2014

(MyFoxLA) It looked and sounded like a real drive-by shooting. Instantly, the people in one neighborhood ran for cover. But it wasn’t real. It was pranksters shooting a video, hoping it would go viral. It did. The pretend drive-by shooting video got more than 6-million views on YouTube. If you search on the web for “Hood Pranks”, hundreds of videos will come up. It’s a new trend–people harassed and terrified on video.

 

Critics say these “Hood Prank” videos target African American communities. They humiliate unsuspecting people and they’re simply not funny. Yet, these prank videos are getting millions of hits on YouTube. And they’re making the producers, a lot of money.

 

Are they funny or are they racist?

 

 

 

‘GOD’ in sliced eggplant at Baton Rouge restaurant

Baton Rouge restaurant employee finds ‘GOD’ in sliced eggplant

 
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) – When an employee at Gino’s Restaurant in Baton Rouge cut into an eggplant Monday, he found “GOD.”

 

Chef Jermarcus Brady couldn’t believe what he was seeing. “I saw a miraculous image formed by the seeds,” said Jermarcus Brady. “It spelled out the word God!” Chef Brady has many responsibilities, one being cutting, salting and sauteing eggplants.

 

“When you sliced into it, the pattern showed from the seeds that were forming in the inside the letters G-O-D as God,” said Brady. “I couldn’t think of anything. I just had to tell somebody to come look at it.”

 

Brady showed the eggplant to the owner of the restaurant and fellow coworkers and took photos, but he believed it was meant to be shared with everyone.

 

Brady says he is no stranger to life’s struggle, and his faith has gotten him through. He raised four kids on a limited income before becoming a chef. He says the significance of the rare eggplant seeds aren’t lost on him.

 

 
“Through the road, he’s showing me that ‘hey, I’m real’ and that’s the only thing I can depend on,” said Brady.

 

The restaurant’s co-owner, Gino Marino, has been in business for nearly 50 years and says with a find this rare, it is something he will never forget.

 

“You could cut one million eggplants and you’d probably never see that again, it’s that rare,” said Marino. “God is within us and he has different ways of showing it in our lives, and this is just one way of showing it.”

 

Whether it is divine intervention or not, it does not matter to Brady. “I don’t know what it means. All I know is it tells me ‘hey, he’s real’ and there’s nothing that can change my mind about that.”

 

Gino’s is an Italian restaurant near I-10 and College Drive in Baton Rouge.

Would You Donate To A Potato Salad Kickstarter Campaign?

 

Published on Jul 8, 2014

“With the 4th of July around the corner, Zack Brown had potato salad on his mind. As any enterprising entrepreneur would do, he initiated a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $10.

 

His appeal is written in a hilarious, deadpan style. For instance, he notes in the Risks section of his campaign that, “It might not be that good. It’s my first potato salad.” At the time I am writing this, he has enticed over 4,100 backers to commit more than $43,000, and counting.”

‘Halt an Imperial Presidency’, Impeach Obama – Sarah Palin 7/8/2014

Sarah Palin on why it’s time to impeach President Obama

 
‘Halt an Imperial Presidency’ Sarah Palin Urges Congress to Impeach Obama

 
(Fox News Insider) Sarah Palin tonight urged Congress to impeach President Barack Obama, saying “a great awakening is due in this country.”

 
Palin said we must send the message that “he is not an imperial president, and lawlessness will not be accepted by the American people.”

 

The former Alaska governor said the tipping point for her has been this illegal immigration crisis. She said Obama and his administration are defrauding Americans with their programs and policies.

 
She also told Sean Hannity that experts have listed at least 25 impeachable offenses.

 

“I really want Congress to do its job, the constitutional power that they have to halt an imperial presidency, to halt this fundamental transformation of America that is making us an unrecognizable mess of a nation at this time,” she said.

 

The one tool that Congress has to halt this lawlessness, Palin said, is impeachment.

 
“And it’s not necessarily, Sean, a lawsuit being filed by Congress because you don’t bring a lawsuit to a gun fight. There’s no place for lawyers on the front line. Where are the front lines in America? They are our borders.”

 

She told Hannity, “Washington is broken. If people care about the future of this country and defense of our republic, they will join this cause of articles of impeachment against Barack Obama because enough is enough.”

 

While Palin said she believes in GOP principles, she said that if the Republican Party continues to stray toward the ‘liberal failed agenda,” she won’t hesitate to unenlist herself from the party.

 

 

Who told this dumbass dicksucking Ho’ she speaks for Americans?

 

 

Senate committee approves broadening of NSA’s authority

 

Published on Jul 8, 2014

The Senate Intelligence Committee passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act in a 12-3 vote late Tuesday evening. Written by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga), civil liberties and privacy advocates fear the bill may potentially expand the controversial National Security Agency’s power to collect information on Americans. The legislation is modeled on 2013’s CISPA bill, which was defeated in Congress after a public outcry. RT’s Ameera David has more on the unexpected passage.

Gun Activists With Assault Rifles Harass Marine Veteran On Memorial Day. God Almighty I Wish This Was Me.


 

By Jueseppi B.

I have felt a somewhat mean angry nasty spirited emotion over take me the past week. I seem to have reached a brick wall reinforced by old Pittsburgh steel when it comes to my already very low tolerance for dumbfuckery from dumbassgunmorons.

 

I would gladly have switched places with this Marine Vet & been face to face with these gun toting no military service idiots, with a much different outcome than the one we see here with this Veteran.

 

00000000000000000000000000000000000000peace5

 

From Mother Jones:

 

Gun Activists With Assault Rifles Harass Marine Veteran on Memorial Day.

 

“Are you gonna cry? Sounds like you’re about to cry.” Watch armed men pursue a vet through downtown Fort Worth.

 

 

On Memorial Day this week, a former Marine in Texas named James got a couple calls from friends who’d spotted an unusual gathering in downtown Fort Worth: Roughly a dozen people, mostly men, were hanging out in the middle of the city’s cultural district, armed with semi-automatic rifles. James quickly knew what his friends were describing, having recently encountered an open-carry demonstration himself in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. An independent TV commercial producer who sometimes films live events, James headed downtown with his camera to get some footage.

 

Gun Activists Harass Marine Veteran

 

 

 

What he saw there struck him as especially provocative. Not only had the open-carry activists come to a typically relaxed, family friendly part of town, they were displaying intimidating firearms just three days after a major gun massacre in Southern California. What he didn’t anticipate was that they would soon be pursuing him for several city blocks with cameras of their own, harassing him and later posting the footage online, where they would also level homophobic slurs and violent threats against him.

 

Women who speak out have been the primary target for gun activists, as I detailed in a recent investigation. But now, on a day meant to honor fallen service members, a military vet would make the hit list.

 

James, who asked that his last name not be used, knows his way around guns. He served for four years in the US Marines infantry, where he earned several awards for marksmanship. He is a gun owner, he told me, and a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and concealed-carry rights. But while carrying rifles publicly is legal in Texas, he felt that these guys—supporters of a movement that seeks to legalize the open carrying of handguns—were crossing a line.

 

“I’ll be happy to smash assholes like him,” said one gun activist online. “Who here wants to help ruin him?” said another.

 

The men, members of the groups Open Carry Texas and Open Carry Tarrant County, asked him which news network he was with. When he said he wasn’t, things began turning frosty. They pressed him about what he thought of their demonstration, and he replied with an unvarnished opinion that included profanities, language he told me he regrets having used.

 

“I’m all for responsible gun owners,” he says. “What I was taught was not to wear it around like a gold chain. What they’re doing is irresponsible. It intimidates the public, and people have just as much right to be comfortable in their public environment as these guys have a right to own their firearms.”

 

Suddenly he was surrounded by about a half-dozen armed men. They started badgering him with questions and accusing him of being anti-American. “I said, ‘Are you kidding me? I served in the military.’ They were trying to intimidate me, and when I didn’t cower that upset them,” he said. But he was starting to feel nervous and decided to disengage and walk away.

 

In a video obtained by Mother Jones that was posted online later that day by one of the activists, the group can be seen pursuing and harassing James through downtown Fort Worth. “I’m following this guy around,” declares one of them, setting off after him with his weapon slung across his back. He and others stay right behind James for several city blocks, following him through traffic and taunting him along the way. James grows more agitated and tells them off, calling them assholes and bullies.

 

“We’re being polite, you’re calling people names,” one of the gun activists pursuing him says.

 

“You’re not being polite out here with assault rifles the weekend after people lost their children,” James retorts, before again trying to walk away.

 

The harassment continues down the street. “Are you gonna cry?” one says. “Sounds like you’re about to cry.” Another says: “What’s wrong with that guy—is he a liberal?

 

“Yeah,” the other replies.

 

“Big time?”

 

“Yeah.”

 

Eventually they follow him to a parking lot (where, in the background, there just so happens to be a Chipotle). As James gets into his vehicle, the gun activists zoom in on his company’s name and contact info appearing on the side of his truck, as well as his license plate, vowing to post it all online.

 

After the video went up on YouTube and Facebook, James pushed back in the comments sections, only to be met with increasing hostility.

 

“That guy obviously thinks he’s a badass talking shit to armed citizens,” one gun activist said. “When [the shit hits the fan] I’ll be happy to smash assholes like him.”

 

When one of the guys who’d followed him suggested posting the video to multiple sites, another said they should “put really gay background music to it.”

 

“He wasn’t Marine Corps infantry,” declared another. “Or he got out due to ‘don’t ask don’t tell.’ What a fruit.”

 

“Who here wants to help ruin him?” said another.

 

The footage the group posted was not the first such effort to intimidate by exposing someone’s personal information: As I reported recently, in April members of Open Carry Texas outed a concerned schoolteacher who had called police in Plano, Texas, and she was soon hit with a barrage of harassment and violent threats by phone and email. James faced similar treatment this week, he told me, with harassers saying he was a “fucking faggot” and “this guy needs his jaw broken.”

 

James shared his story only reluctantly, but he is also adamant, he says, that what the gun activists are doing is wrong. And he’s far from alone in that view: He has since also received many positive calls and messages of support, he says—including from a couple of vocal open-carry supporters, one of whom invited him to go to a firing range together.

 

After multiple rejections from corporate restaurants and a wave of negative publicity, several Texas open-carry groups put out a joint statement last week asking their supporters to dial back the provocative tactics. Some hardcore followers balked at that, but now even some rank and file gun activists have expressed doubt in online comments about this latest incident. “Following him makes you the bad guy and could be considered intimidation,” one said. A member of Open Carry Texas—who himself participated in that group’s intimidation tactics against women—also disapproved of the footage, or at least of its public airing. “Nothing about this video benefits our movement,” he said.

 

Thank you  & Mother Jones.

When I was in basic in my branch of the military, we were taught in the first month of that experience how to disarm anyone who was unfriendly. Be they armed with a K-Bar or toting a SG 550. We were taught that no matter the weapon, if an enemy was within reach of us physically, he could be disarmed in 4.5 seconds if we recruits learned what we were being taught.

 

I wish an asshole who imagines he/she has an advantage over anyone because he/she is armed, would approach me in the exact same manner as these 11th graders approached this Marine Vet.

 

I am against guns. PERIOD. The 2nd amendment is a racist joke, and should be repealed yesterday. NO human should have any weapon more deadly that a Louisville Slugger. Guns should be, must be, removed from any sane intelligent civil society.

 

I own guns, and I own a concealed carry permit and have been licensed since 1985 when I returned home from my 9 years in hell for Uncle Sam. With relatives like Uncle Sam, you never need enemies. I carry daily when I am in the street, you could never tell that just by looking at me or talking to me.

 

The second guns are outlawed I’ll be the 2nd person in line to turn my weapons in….never be the 1st to do anything (another military lesson from my CO).

 

On July 13th of 2013 when George Zimmerman was labeled not guilty, I re-purchased 7 weapons to replace the 7 I had given up the week after the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre. I couldn’t with good mind keep guns if I hated them so much, and that Sandy Hook slaughter turned my resolve to carry or hold weapons.

 

Then George Zimmerman was set free. That changed my resolve to be unarmed.

 

I said all that to say this….this video is prime proof why dumbass Americans do not need firearms, including me.

 

I should not have weapons and neither should any human, no matter how well trained, or how well experienced in the use of firearms.

 

Before you open your mouth to say “2nd amendment” read this, then shut the fuck up and go sit the fuck down…..

 

Guns. Some Guns. More Guns. Gun News. The 2nd Amendment.

 

People like these cretins in this video are why no human that breaths oxygen or bleeds red blood, should ever have a weapon. Had that been me instead of “James”, we’d all have been on the 6 O’clock news.

 

With them dead, and me facing prison because Stand Your Ground was not created for a Black American. Nor is it allowed to be used as a defense option during trial.

 

Have a happy weekend.

Father of UCSB Shooting Victim Christopher Martinez: “When Will This Insanity Stop?”

 

Published on May 24, 2014

Richard Martinez, the father of 20-year-old UCSB shooting victim Christopher Martinez, attacked the NRA and guns in a heartbreaking speech at a press conference this afternoon.

 

“Our son Chris Martinez and six others are dead,” Martinez said. “Our family has a message for every parent out there: You don’t think it will happen to your child until it does.”

 

 

 

Richard Martinez is right.

 

His son Christopher was shot and killed in Santa Barbara after our representatives in Washington failed — again and again and again — to fix our broken gun laws.

 

They failed to take comprehensive action after Columbine. After Virginia Tech. After Tucson. After Fort Hood. After Aurora. And as Mr. Martinez said, “My kid died because nobody responded to what happened at Sandy Hook.”

 

We cannot stand by and do nothing while 86 people die every day from gun shots. Not One More person should die because our elected officials failed to fix our broken gun laws.
