  1. “They’re not my people.” — Donald J. Trump, speaking of Blacks and Latinos

    • Doesn’t matter anyway, Biden is history starting from today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woGyMvqLV5o This story is all over the place !!

      You have to stop lying. You need to win on issues not lies.

    • Joe Biden “I don’t want my children to grow up in a racial jungle” ” Poor kids are just as smart as White Kids” ” You can’t go into a Dunkin Donuts and not see a person from India” ” Barack Obama is articulate for a Black Man” “If you don’t vote for me then you ain’t Black” “That Corn Pop was a bad dude” “Dey gonna put y’all in chains”
      Plus Biden praised former KKK Grand Wizard Democrat US Senator Robert Byrd at his funeral…
      Biden praised Segregationist Democrats US Senators Fullbright, Wallace, Hollins and Thurmond at their funerals..
      Racist stool sample…

    • As a member of black, latino AND white cultures…I respect Trump’s 100% honesty. He knows how AmeriKKKa runs. Christian nation, run by racist white “christians”.

  2. I Don’t want Trump to Lose!

    I want Trump to Lose Badly!!! So I Vote Biden…

  3. Trump’s economic record:
    —8,000,000 fallen into poverty
    —12,600,000 unemployed
    —40,000,000 risking eviction
    —12,000,000 who have lost health care

      I was struck deeply by your comment. My husband moved us back to his hometown in Ohio. I was shocked to see no one has a garden. No one but a tiny few decorate for any holidays. The city charges mega taxes but the sidewalks are disgusting. Trash everywhere. And the hate and violence is literally every. It all goes together….filth, anger, hate, division, no color. Sad. And now?with COVID-19? Everything looks like death.

    • @BlackberrySage Buy Some Flowers , Flowers Welcomes Peace And Love .Something We All Need. Now Imagine a Rose Garden In Ohio 😏

    Ignorance is not unique to America it’s just just become a way of life there!

    We can honestly say that French cops are not welcome in America, we have enough problems with the fascist cops here.

  10. @2:45 the united states is insane…..absolutely barbaric

  11. Slappywag Waggings | October 19, 2020 at 12:04 PM | Reply

    maybe if cops just did their job and stopped abusing the power of their position they wouldn’t have this problem. Obviously not all cops, for the people that need it spelled out

    America is just a continuation of old colonialist Europe, but a freakshow cartoon version and with “internally colonised” peoples, not just its foreign colonies

    Of ALL French police? That’s what you’re implying. France has a LONG way to go to be in the same league as the USA. America better wake up and fight for their democracy.

  14. fascism all over again…….

  15. Why are so much ppl afraid of us black ppl/ ppl of color, like what did we do to ever deserve this punishment and hatred. I’m Black and I’m proud of my skin🗣✊🏾

    • I know I just asked God the same question.

    • Dual Lingual Lady - Aisha Ahmed | October 19, 2020 at 1:20 PM | Reply

      They say Prophet Moses Peace Be Upon Him was black, so why weren’t people afraid of him?

      And Prophet Jesus Peace Be Upon Him is not white, I am saying “is” because he never died and is still alive in the Heavens waiting for his time to return to Earth 🌍

      This lifetime is nothing but a test, and the Almighty Lord is testing the people with money 💰 by making some rich and poor and in between. Just like that He has made people of different colors all from one parents, Adam Peace Be Upon Him and Eve May He have mercy on them.

      It is up to the human being to be angle like or devil like.

    • I am white and proud also…that makes me a racist…haha you are not fooling anyone

    • @Flash Gordon That doesn’t make you a racist. The question is, are you an Ally or not?

    • @Flash Gordon Maybe you should be talking to your white people about racial injustice instead of trolling..

    What’s done in the dark will come to the light .

  17. Even animals have decency….what’s happening to human race??

    _NOTE! This is an old style broadside not a “Tweet”. As this is not Twitter. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you are deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, read on._

    *VOTE! BECAUSE WE STILL CAN!*
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    _A Broadside_

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*

    *REGRETFULLY, IN THE LIGHT OF REASONABLE AND SOUND REFLECTION upon:*

    👉 *His* fluency of falsehoods,
    👉 *His* fear of criticism and responsibility,
    👉 *His* insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    👉 *His* deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    👉 *His* incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    👉 *His* open threat to decline a peaceful transfer of power should he lose his bid for reelection,
    👉 *His* inability to maintain discretion on social media _and_
    👉 *His* increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that:
    *President Donald Trump has indisputably forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government confrères in his charge that procure sensitive and secret knowledge of matters affecting national security they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *THIS SITUATION* is unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID!* Our moment, described as an “Inflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do — Let this be _OUR_ remedy!

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there come, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!

    *AMERICA WILL NOT BE DISGRACED ANY LONGER*

    *The case against the President is prima facie inasmuch as:*

    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them “suckers”,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_

    *ALL OF THE ABOVE IS CLEAR, IS OBVIOUS, AND IS TRUE! AS WELL, IT IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE BY ALL BRANCHES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BY THE FBI, BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY, et al; AND BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION!*

    *FOR PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED! ON THE CONTRARY, HE IS A MENACE TO THE PEACE!*

    *THEREFORE:*
    *IN ORDER TO RENDER THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FAMILIAR AND PLEASANT TO THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN TERRIBLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE*

    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing.

    *AND IN RETURN*
    *WE SHALL NOT* tolerate any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United States or abroad by design or effect that suppresses, deters, delays, denies, manipulates, interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND — ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY — TO REMOVE AND REPLACE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*

    _Publius_

  19. 2:43 adjusting to population size the France 26 turns into 128 relative to the US 1098. The US is ove the top and skyrocketing (8.5x France’s rate) but honestly I didn’t expect France to be that bad, it’s same population size with the UK and still a higher rate of police killings (8.7x)

  20. This world is ruled by barbarians professing to be the civilized.
