Is it any surprise? Student “walkout” to protest guns turns bigoted and violent

Liberal intolerance ranges from suspension to physical violence and injury while cowardly liberals hide behind the letter of the law to conceal their domestic terror agenda

Wednesday, March 14 was the scheduled day for a “National School Walkout” to protest “gun violence” in the wake of the massacre carried out against students at Marjorie Stoneman-Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14th of this year. While the event was given the optics of some type of nobility or “plea for the safety” of our nation’s schoolchildren, the event revealed itself to be what all of these liberal-loony events are: license to anarchy, unruly behavior, prejudice and violence.

Ohio – Hilliard Davidson High School

In Ohio, Senior (12th grader) Jacob Shoemaker decided not to take a side on the issue, so instead of marching with the walkout people, or standing with the 2nd Amendment supporters who were being accused of “supporting gun violence”, which is, of course a liberal straw man argument, he opted to sit in his classroom during the event and do his homework.

He was suspended from school for a day. The school cites that it could not be responsible for Shoemaker’s safety and that is why it suspended him.

So, wait. They couldn’t have had a teacher remain in a classroom or two for students who preferred not to participate? This is pretty interesting since it is a school.

Chicago – Chicago School system coercion by curriculum

In Chicago, that wonderful haven of both leftist loons and also the city with the most gun-related violence in America, the student walkout turned into an administration-organized event, sanctioned by the CEO of the Chicago public school system.

Not only that, but the event was made to champion the cause of gun control itself, with internet links provided for study materials, which as Chris Cleveland, a GOP chairman for Chicago noted in a written statement, is tantamount to coercion:

It’s appalling that 10 to 14 year old kids would be coerced, by their teachers, to participate in a political demonstration… A 10-year-old kid isn’t going to have an informed opinion on these political matters, and shouldn’t be expected to have the fortitude to hold a different opinion from everyone else in his or her classroom. This is political indoctrination, pure and simple.” (emphasis mine)

He is correct. The sad fact, though is that Mr. Cleveland is a Republican political activist by virtue of his job, and during liberal lunacy celebrations, he is part of the enemy whether he says anything or not.

But we continue.

Chicago – Walmart

Again in Chicago, some sixty students are alleged by witnesses to have indeed walked out of school… and into a local Walmart, where they promptly decided it was their right to trash the place.

In legal parlance, we are told that one should say “alleged” when a court hasn’t found a conviction. However, someone used this event as an excuse, and they were caught on video.

I thought the point of this walkout was to say that gun-related violence was wrong. Did I miss something?

But sadly, the worst yet known is next.

Minneapolis, Minnesota – Southwest High School

A student at a Minneapolis, MN high school was assaulted by a mob of students during the walkout there, because he was carrying a flag showing his support of President Donald Trump in the event.  This took place at Southwest High School. The student, whose name has not been released, was waving his flag when he was ambushed by at least eight classmates. They took his flag and damaged a camera he was carrying.

At first it was reported that he received only minor injuries (“only!”) but later a family friend told Fox News that the student had to be taken to Urgent Care because his arm was  broken in two places by these peaceful protesters.The police reported that a school resource officer did stop the attack, but the same family friend disputed that claim, saying it was a student council leader who actually stopped the fight.

There have been no arrests yet, and police are said to still be investigating what happened. However, this walkout was Wednesday, and the source of this article released this information early Saturday morning. How long does an investigation of this kind of thing actually take, folks?

The officials at the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) claim that according to state law they are prohibited from sharing details of this incident.While a spokesman for the MPS, Dirk Tedmon, stated that students have a right to express their opinions even when others do not agree with them, it seems that this dignity went unregarded in many places that day.

This is of course, not really new. But there are several kernels of real truth that a sane community would take into account.

First, kids are not in school to be politically indoctrinated. While schools do serve a purpose in socialization, in the past they did so with an eye to liberties granted under the American Constitution. We were taught to value our freedom, and we were also taught to respect the right of everyone around us to disagree with us. That is a far cry from being turned into a gun-control zombie just because it is politically correct to do so.

Second, the age of adulthood in most states is 18. This age is a benchmark that is established as the age where personal responsibility entirely falls upon each citizen of the United States of America. Before that age, a person is a “minor”, and does not really have a right to demonstrate, and certainly no right to walk out of classes and disrupt schools. Every school district and every school that sanctioned this event committed a grave error in giving a bunch of wild animals the right to be wild as possible in this way. The Walmart video clips give good visual testimony to that. Many of those kids are ones that come from “good families” and yet, this was basically a license for hooliganism on a massive scale. What kind of self-restraint does this teach?

Third, the nature and scope of this event reveals that it is not an event that mere high-school students can orchestrate. There was a major support network in place, and I would personally opine that this network was driven by liberal activists who care very little about the actual Parkland Massacre or its victims, save that they are a very effective platform from which to launch a political agenda. Remember Rahm Emmanuel’s statement, “Never let a good crisis go to waste?” Well, here you go.

The most shameful thing about this is that political activism, most particularly when it gets violent like this, is absolutely disrespectful to the memory of the kids who died and to the families who are bereaved and in unbelievable personal pain from this and other incidents.

One can be sure that the souls of those 17 kids and others like them are ashamed of the actions of these people who have hijacked their good memories for selfish ends. There are no words to adequately describe how reprehensible this has become.

Peace on Korean Peninsula within reach, if only Trump can remove Pompeo & Bolton (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 152.

Alex Christoforou

Published

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss the results of the Putin-Kim summit in Vladivostok, Russia, aimed at boosting bilateral ties between the two neighboring countries, as well as working to contribute to a final peace settlement on the Korean peninsula.

Putin’s meeting with Kim may prove to be a pivotal diplomatic moment, as North Korea continues to work towards normalizing ties with the U.S. amidst ongoing denuclearization talks with the Trump White House.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un needs international security guarantees if he is to end his nuclear programme.

Such guarantees would need to be offered within a multinational framework, he added, following talks near Vladivostok in Russia’s far east.

Mr Kim praised the summit as a “very meaningful one-on-one exchange”.

Mr Putin said North Korea’s leader was “fairly open” and had “talked freely on all issues that were on the agenda”.

The meeting followed the breakdown of talks between the US and North Korea in February, when Mr Kim met US President Donald Trump in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi.

Those talks reportedly stalled over North Korea’s demand for full economic sanctions relief in return for some denuclearisation commitments – a deal the US was not willing to make.

Speaking after the talks on Thursday, Mr Putin said he wanted to see full denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula.

But he said this could only be achieved through respect for international law.

“We need to restore the power of international law, to return to a state where international law, not the law of the strongest, determines the situation in the world,” he said.

Mr Kim greeted Russian officials warmly when he arrived in Russia on Wednesday.

The North Korean leader was entertained by a brass band in Vladivostok before he got inside a car flanked by bodyguards, who – in now familiar scenes – jogged alongside the vehicle as it departed.

What do we know about the summit?

According to the Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin believes the six-party talks on North Korea, which are currently stalled, are the only efficient way of addressing the issue of nuclear weapons on the peninsula.

Those talks, which began in 2003, involve the two Koreas as well as China, Japan, Russia and the US.

“There are no other efficient international mechanisms at the moment,” Mr Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

“But, on the other hand, efforts are being made by other countries. Here all efforts merit support as long as they really aim at de-nuclearisation and resolving the problem of the two Koreas.”

What do both sides want?

This visit is being widely viewed as an opportunity for North Korea to show it has powerful allies following the breakdown of the talks with the US in February.

The country has blamed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for the collapse of the Hanoi summit. Earlier this month North Korea demanded that Mr Pompeo be removed from nuclear talks, accusing him of “talking nonsense” and asking for someone “more careful” to replace him.

The summit is also an opportunity for Pyongyang to show that its economic future does not depend solely on the US. Mr Kim may try to put pressure on Moscow to ease sanctions.

Analysts say the summit is an opportunity for Russia to show that it is an important player on the Korean peninsula.

President Putin has been eager to meet the North Korean leader for quite some time. Yet amid the two Trump-Kim summits, the Kremlin has been somewhat sidelined.

Russia, like the US and China, is uncomfortable with North Korea being a nuclear state.

How close are Russia and North Korea?

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union (of which Russia is the main successor state) maintained close military and trade links with its communist ally, North Korea, for ideological and strategic reasons.

After the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, trade links with post-communist Russia shrank and North Korea leaned towards China as its main ally.

Under President Putin, Russia recovered economically and in 2014 he wrote off most of North Korea’s Soviet-era debt in a major goodwill gesture.

While it is arguable how much leverage Russia has with the North today, the communist state still regards it as one of the least hostile foreign powers.

Putin meets Kim for the first time (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 151.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a look at the historic meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the city of Vladivostok in the Russian Far East.

The meeting marks the first ever summit between the two leaders.

Via RT…

Leaders of Russia and North Korea sat down for a historic summit in Vladivostok, expressing hope it will revive the peace process in the Korean Peninsula and talks on normalizing relations with the US.

The summit on Russky Island, just off Vladivostok, started a little late because President Vladimir Putin’s flight was delayed. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had made the trip by train, arriving on Wednesday.

In brief public remarks before the talks, the two leaders expressed hope the summit will help move forward the reconciliation process in the Korean Peninsula. Putin welcomed Kim’s contributions to “normalizing relations” with the US and opening a dialogue with South Korea.

Kim said he hoped the Vladivostok summit would be a “milestone” in the talks about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, but also build upon “traditionally friendly ties” between Russia and North Korea.

The North Korean leader also made a point of thanking Putin for flying all the way to Vladivostok for the meeting. The Far East Russian city is only 129 kilometers from the border with North Korea.

The historic summit takes place less than two months after Kim’s second summit with US President Donald Trump in Hanoi fell apart without a breakthrough on denuclearization. The US rejected North Korea’s request for partial sanctions relief in return for moves to dismantle nuclear and missile programs; Washington insists on full disarmament before any sanctions are removed.

Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is the main subject of the Kim-Putin summit, but there will also be talks about bilateral relations, trade, and humanitarian aid. The first one-on-one meeting is scheduled to last about an hour, followed by further consultations involving other government officials.

Following the summit, Putin is scheduled to visit China.

Kim And Putin: Changing The State Of The Board In Korea

The future of Korea could be decided by these two men today.

Authored by Tom Luongo:


Today is a big day for Korea. The first face-to-face summit of Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un takes place.

At the same time the 2nd annual Belt and Road Forum kicks off in Beijing.

This meeting between Putin and Kim has been in the works for a while but rumors of it only surfaced last week. But don’t let the idea that this was put together at the last minute fool you.

It wasn’t.

The future of Korea could be decided by these two men today.

I know that sounds bold. But hear me out.

And while no one seems to think this meeting is important or that anything of substance will come from it I do. It is exactly the kind of surprise that Putin loves to spring on the world without notice and by doing so change the board state of geopolitics.

  • Russia’s entrance into Syria in 2015, two days after Putin’s historic speech at the U.N. General Assembly
  • 2018’s State of the Union address where he announced hypersonic missiles, embarrassing the U.S. Militiary-Industrial Complex which accelerated the Bolton Doctrine of subjugating the world
  • Flying 2 TU-160 nuclear-armed bombers to Venezuela, creating panic in D.C. leading to the ham-fisted regime change operations there.
  • Nationalization of Yukos.
  • The operation to secure Crimea from U.S. invasion by marines aboard the U.S.S Donald Cook during the Ukrainian uprising against Viktor Yanukovich.

Both Putin and Chinese Premier Xi Jinping are angry at the breakdown of the talks in Hanoi back in February. It was clear that everyone expected that meeting to be a rubber stamp on a deal already agreed to by all parties involved.

In fact the two meetings between Kim and Trump were only possible because Trump convinced them of his sincerity to resolve the ‘denuclearization’ of North Korea which would clear a path to rapid reunification.

It’s why they went along with the U.S.’s increased sanctions on North Korea as administered through the U.N. in 2017.

That John Bolton and Mike Pompeo destroyed those talks and Trump was unwilling or unable (who cares at this point, frankly, useless piece of crap that he is) to stop them embarrassed and betrayed them.

They are now done with Trump.

He’ll get nothing from either of them or Kim until Trump can prove he’s in charge of his administration, which he, clearly, is not.

And they will be moving forward with their own agenda for security and Asian economic integration. So I don’t think the timing of this meeting with that of the Belt and Road Forum is an accident.

And that means moving forward on solving the Korea problem without Trump.

It is clear from the rhetoric of Putin’s top diplomat, the irreplaceable Sergei Lavrov, that Russia’s patience is over. They are no longer interested in what Trump wants and they will now treat the U.S. as a threat, having upped their military stance towards the U.S. to that of “Threat.”

If Bolton wants anything from Russia at this point he best be prepared to start a war or piss off.

This is also why Russia took the gloves off with Ukraine in the run up to the Presidential elections, cutting off energy and machinery exports with Ukraine.

To put paid Putin’s growing impatience with U.S. policies, he just issued the order to allow residents of Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics to apply for Russian passports.

This will send Bolton into apoplexy. Angela Merkel of Germany will be none too pleased either. Putin is now playing hardball after years of unfailing politeness.

It’s also why Lavrov finalized arms and port deals all over the Middle East in recent weeks, including those with Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey and India.

Bolton, Pompeo and Pence are ideologues. Trump is a typical Baby Boomer, who lives in a bubble of his own design and believes in an America that never existed.

None of them truly understand the fires they are stoking and simply believe in the Manifest Destiny of the U.S. to rule the world over a dim and barbaric world.

Putin, Xi, Rouhani in Iran and Kim in North Korea are pragmatic men. They understand the realities they live in. This is why I see Putin willing tomorrow to sit down with Kim and flaunt the U.N. sanctions and begin the investment process into North Korea that should have begun last year.

Putin would not be making these moves if he didn’t feel that Bolton was all bark and no bite when it came to actual war with Russia. He also knows that Germany needs him more than he needs Germany so despite the feet-dragging and rhetoric Nordstream 2 will go forward.

Trade is expanding between them despite the continued sanctions.

Putin may be willing to cut a deal with President-elect Zelensky on gas transit later in the year but only if the shelling of the LPR and DPR stops and he guarantees no more incidents in the Sea of Azov. This would also mollify Merkel a bit and make it easier for her politically to get Nordstream 2 over the finish line.

There are moments in history when people go too far. Bolton and Pompeo went too far in Hanoi. He will pay the price now. Putin and Kim will likely agree to something in Vladivostok that no one is expecting and won’t look like much at first.

But the reality is this summit itself marks a turning point in this story that will end with the U.S. being, in Trump’s transactional parlance, a “price taker” since it has so thoroughly failed at being a “price maker.”
