#8  “At 50, everyone has the face he deserves,” wrote George Orwell in 1949. These were apparently the last words the Nineteen Eighty-Four author penned in his personal diary.

Because White Supremacists == Democrat???

And even BLM is a White Supremacist organization. Wrap your head around that - they have the same basic goals as the KKK (control the black vote), and is a militant arm of the DNC. Only the methods (direct "I will kill you" verses indirect "The MAN will kill you!" threats) differ.

Overnight on 4–5 Oct., BLM-antifa rioters in Portland marched around downtown in more criminal protests

Viral video reportedly shows antifa members trying to rip American flag from woman's hands in Portland
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] A viral video out of Portland shows a woman holding on to an American flag while reported antifa members try to rip it from her hands.

"There was a conservative protest today in downtown Portland. Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...
came to attack the attendees. As they were leaving, antifa tried to steal a woman’s US flag (she’s a person of color). She refused to let go & they pulled her to ground by her hair. She still didn’t let go," journalist Andy Ngo tweeted, accompanied by video of the incident.

The video has grabbed people's attention, with more than a half million views on Twitter and conservative radio host Dan Bongino condemning antifa.

"ANTIFA is a fascist
...anybody you disagree with, damn them...
terror group that worships violence and destruction. They are also known racists who terrorize Minority communities. They should be prosecuted as the bandidos hard boyz they are. Only racists support ANTIFA," Bongino tweeted in response.

President Trump vowed in September to designate antifa and the Ku Klux Klan terrorist organizations when he announced an economic empowerment plan for the black community.

During the first presidential debate of the general election cycle, Democratic nominee Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Candidate for president in 2020. When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'...
described antifa as an "idea."

"Antifa’s an idea, not an organization," Biden said after the Trump administration moved to designate it a terror group. "That’s what [Trump's] FBI director said."

"Ideas do not target coppers. Ideas do not burn down buildings. Ideas do not kill innocent Americans. Organizations do. And Democrats should condemn this shameful group in the same manner President Trump continues to condemn white supremacy
...the pernicious doctrine that laws were intended to be obeyed, that society works better when people don't pour shreiking from their places of worship every Friday for a weekend of rioting over insults real or imagined; and that cannibalism, beastiality, incest, murder, theft, rape, and similar activities are bad. A Dead White European (which invalidates his opinion) philosopher once opined that societies thrive when a person's word can be relied upon, and that a society which puts individual happiness first will invariably fail. Strangely enough, other successful societies, such as China, Japan, Korea, and those kinds of places could also be lumped with white supremacist societies, since they push the same values...
," White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany hit back last week during a presser.

The Grand Turk
Erdogan: ''Turkey is ready to disrupt this bloody game in the Caucasus with all its resources''
[APA.AZ] The massacres committed by Armenia in Azerbaijan have gone unpunished to this day. Unfortunately, the international organizations remained silent in the face of this baseness during the occupation of Azerbaijan's Karabakh lands by Armenia, Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
said in his speech after the cabinet meeting, APA's local bureau reports.The Ottoman Turkish President said that the US, La Belle France and Russia, members of the OSCE Minsk Group, have not solved this problem for nearly 30 years, so the Azerbaijani people have suffered the consequences of both occupation and losses. The Azerbaijani army moved quickly and so far part of the Karabakh lands has been liberated from occupation.

RT Erdogan noted that The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
has always considered Azerbaijan justified in its struggle and is still with the brotherly country: "We stand with the brotherly Azerbaijani people with all our hearts."

The Ottoman Turkish President also stressed that the bandidos in the region violated peace and stability and that the world could no longer tolerate the oppression of such terrorist states: "Turkey is ready to disrupt this bloody game with all its strength and capabilities. That is why we say that the world is bigger than 5. Such a solution to the Karabakh problem, which has been the most important crisis in the Caucasus for the last 30 years, is a necessity of history, law and truth. Otherwise, it is impossible to solve this problem in the region."

Rasoul: Armed Forces reached important leads regarding rocket launchers
[THEBAGHDADPOST] On Sunday, the front man for the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Major General Yahya Rasoul, revealed that important leads have been reached regarding launching rockets towards the Green Zone, confirming that the operations of imposing law and confining weapons to the hands of the state are continuing.Rasoul told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "The intelligence effort is the present. Therefore, today work is underway according to an accurate intelligence plan through which we reached important strings regarding launching missiles."

He added, "The investigation committees that were formed under the order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Mustafa al-Kadhmi, were intended to reach the rocket launchers towards the Green Zone and towards the citizens, the last of which was in Radwaniyah, which killed three deaders and maimed two."

In a separate context, Major General Rasoul emphasized that "the operations of imposing law, imposing the prestige of the state, and controlling uncontrolled weapons are continuing and did not stop until the issue of tribal disputes is completed, in coordination with the original Iraqi tribes."

"Now is the time to secure the fortieth visit of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, peace be upon him," he explained, "and the cutters now have a mission to secure the routes taken by the visitors, as well as to perform the tasks of preemptive security operations against ISIS terrorist gangs and their remnants."

With regard to the disputed areas, Rasoul pointed out that "there are some areas that are still empty, which are spaces between the veils of the provincial guard forces and the locations of the federal government units."

He stated that "these areas contain the remnants of ISIS terrorist gangs, and they need proactive and qualitative work," indicating that "the joint committees between the federal government represented by the leadership of joint operations and the Ministry of Peshmerga in the Kurdistan region are working to overcome all these difficulties."
