Anti-Gentrification ´Activists´
Embrace Violence, Threats

PJ Media, by Tom Knighton

Original Article

When I think about heroic activists, one name stands tallest: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He fully embraced non-violence as the means to combat injustice, and by never raising a hand against his opponents, he won. Today, some anti-gentrification "activists" would do well to learn those lessons. In communities all around the nation, people see opportunity in lower-income neighborhoods. They enter the areas, start businesses and renovate structures. They raise property values and create jobs and boost our standard of living. They also drive out prior residents who were renters. This process is the natural result of a market economy. That being

Hipsters can´t take over a neighborhood without moving the natives to some barren places as done with some of the Indian tribes. There´s always conflict when unwelcome outsiders move in.

The ´funny part´ is white liberals are largely the ones pushing out poorer residents. In San Francisco and Portland the black populations have plummeted.

We lived this do this nonsense burns me up.

Neighborhoods filled with abandoned houses, some uninhabitable, many others section 8 rentals owned by out of town landlords (slumlords) who do minimal if any maintenance. All houses run down, small, and old. Median home value well below $100k.

The business areas feature used tire stores, paycheck loan joints, shady gas stations, run down business fronts with bars on the windows, few grocery store and none that stay open late. No new businesses or restaurants.

The perpetual presence of LEO´s and blue lights at night. Questionable inhabitants loiter all day and night. Kids run in gangs.

This was our neighborhood 20 years ago. We settled here in the early years of gentrification in an up and coming part of the neighborhood. We took a risk with OUR MONEY. It paid off for us and many retirees that owned their homes here for 40 years and were able to retire with a nice nest egg thanks to selling their older homes for good money.
Now median house value is well over 200k and new businesses and restaurants are flourishing. Yes, the objectionable criminal element is almost gone. GOOD!

"Boyle Heights was a predominantly Jewish community with “a vibrant, pre-World War II, Yiddish-speaking community, replete with small shops along Brooklyn Avenue, union halls, synagogues and hyperactive politics … shaped by the enduring influence of the Socialist and Communist parties"

"...the Jewish community was moving westward into new homes, the largest growing group, Latinos, were moving into Boyle Heights because to them this neighborhood was represented as upward mobility"

"Saul Alinsky; well-known Chicago-Jewish community activist and his company, the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) garnered support from the Mexican Americans in order for Roybal (Los Angeles’s first city council member of Latino heritage) to win the 1949 election" Wikipedia

Boyle Heights has long been a center for communist activism, and Mexican-Americans have been one of their "causes" since the 1940s. I don´t think they will allow the yuppies to gentrify the area. That would be racism.

The root of the problem is once again, democrats. democrats released the mental defectives to run free among us. democrats ruined schools by letting the ACLU determine who gets disciplined or removed from the school system. democrats invited the illegals to suck the system dry of resources and overload the schools and hospitals at the same time. Finally democrats outsourced manufacturing jobs and substituted any chance at a career for a poverty dependency handout that actually punishes initiative.

Require any welfare in any form to be earned with some form of time or labor and the only people protesting would be the SOROS crowd, which should be RICOed anyway. Plenty to do. You want rent help, clean up the trash or paint a house. You want food allowance, work in the community garden. How you mobilize a run down community to do these things and the much harder problem of stopping drugs and the crime that comes with that, requires imagination, discipline and most of all leadership. So far running it from DC with liberal ´leadership,´ has been an epic fail.

Land O´Lakes teen recovering after

A Land O’ Lakes teen is recovering after being infected by something you may not expect: a caterpillar. A day of doing volunteer yard work on June 16 turned ugly when Logan Pergola’s arm brushed by an oak tree. “It just hurt like a small scratch," Logan told us. "Then all of the sudden, my arm went numb and I felt a burning pain." He looked down and saw a unlikely culprit: a small, furry caterpillar, later identified as a southern flannel moth. It’s also commonly called a puss caterpillar. His arm had simply brushed it when the venom went into

Tania Lavin is (or was, at last word) a fact-checker for the New Yorker. She achieved overnight Twitter-fame by accusing an ICE agent of being a white supremacist. The New York Post has the story: "A Harvard-educated fact-checker for the New Yorker is being excoriated by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency for “baselessly slandering” a Marine veteran — by falsely accusing him of having a Nazi tattoo, according to reports. (Snip) An obvious question is, what on God’s green Earth would cause anyone to think that the vaguely cross-like symbol on Gaertner’s elbow is a Nazi or white supremacist sign?

Every time you hear some young hip woke leftist at a technology company like Facebook telling you he needs to protect you from fake news, remember that what he´s saying is that you´re a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal who is too stupid to figure out that it´s okay for good people like Hillary to break the law. In fact, he´s saying the majority of Americans are too intellectually challenged to discriminate between fact and fiction. Historically, "common" folk were able to figure out that the National Enquirer´s stories about two-headed alien Elvis clones are fake and even that professional wrestling is staged.

It has been said a nation can have either welfare or open borders -- but not both -- in the same way one can have a cool air-conditioned room in a blazing desert or an open door -- but not both. It is the inequality between the outside and inside temperatures that the door is intended to preserve. The problem of keeping the room cool while leaving the door open is now consuming Angela Merekel´s European Union as the refugee problem grows in political size. Can the EU have no internal borders if it lacks an external one? If there´s no

TAMPA — Loueita Hargens had known for years how her son Bradley Dykes would die. She had seen him cycle through drugs of choice, had lost track of the number of times he’d wound up in the hospital or prison. A recovering alcoholic herself, she cut him off several years ago. "If you want to talk, you can find me at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting," the mother told her son. It finally happened in November: Dykes fatally overdosed on the synthetic opioid fentanyl. He was 46. Hargens was grief stricken but not shocked, and months later, another emotion has joined the mix. She hopes the federal prosecution of her

A massive python killed a woman in Indonesia, the second time in just over a year one of the giant constrictors swallowed a human in adjacent provinces in that country. The woman, 54-year-old Wa Tiba, went missing while checking her vegetable garden near her village on Muna island in Southeast Sulawesi province on Thursday evening, said the chief of the village of Persiapan Lawela, Faris, who uses a single name. Wa Tiba was concerned about wild boars getting into her corn, planted about a half-mile from her house. When she hadn’t returned by sunrise Friday, her sister went to look for her. She found only Tiba’s footprints,

Shinnecock Hills responded with a vengeance on Saturday in the third round of the 2018 U.S. Open. Dustin Johnson had pushed the lead all the way to 4-under par heading into the weekend, but as we head into Sunday´s final round, he´s in a four-way tie atop the leaderboard after going 7 over. The cut was at 8-over par, but after a day where the average score was between 75-76, 8-over par is now good enough for T-16 on the leaderboard. This course was a fickle beast all day with many golfers criticizing the way it is playing even compared

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied both the Old and New Testament, and what is being

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Michelle Obama traded workout clothes for a chic suit as she went out to lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former first lady looked perfectly chic for her business lunch as she dined at the Gjelina restaurant in Venice. Michelle swapped out her usual jewel tones with a softer palate of pastels for the meeting. She opted for light green wide-leg trousers and a suit jacket done in matching green and black stripes, topping the look off with a simple white shirt and sandals. The former first lady also shielded her face with an oversized pair of pastel pink sunglasses

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,
