Anti-Gentrification ´Activists´
Embrace Violence, Threats

PJ Media, by Tom Knighton

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 3/7/2018 10:08:22 AM

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.

In The Consolation of Philosophy, the 5th Century Greek scholar and Roman Consul Boethius wrote: “Compare the length of a moment with the period of ten thousand years; the first, however miniscule, does exist as a fraction of a second. But that number of years, or any multiple of it that you may name, cannot even be compared with a limitless extent of time, the reason being that comparisons can be drawn between finite things, but not between finite and infinite.” Boethius’ insight into the nature of asymmetrical comparison is perennially valid, whether with respect to philosophical and theological speculation, mathematical

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.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson — who replaced former Gov. Eric Greitens June 1 — declined to apologize, but he did attempt to clarify his position on LGBT rights this week. While serving as lieutenant governor, Parson told the Midwest Baptist publication Word & Way last year that while he didn’t believe Missourians who were gay or transgender should face job discrimination. “Do I think that you should go out there and fire them for that? I don’t,” Parson said. But, because he is a Christian — and this is what Missouri Democrats pounced on — Parson also said, “I’m old school. I know

Dipping into the Department of Justice Inspector General report released yesterday, we are inundated with information and interesting story lines. One such story line involves Bill Clinton’s response to the uproar created over his tarmac meeting with then Attorney General Loretta Lynch the Monday before Hillary Clinton’s scheduled weekend interview with the FBI in the email “investigation,” as we should probably refer to it. The uproar led to FBI Director James Comey improperly inserting himself into the decision making role over the prosecution of Hillary Clinton. In the event, in his press conference of July 5, he let her off

A story of high tragedy is buried deep in the inspector general´s (IG) report published Thursday. Like Oedipus before him, FBI staffer Peter Strzok feared a terrible future and fought to prevent it. Ironically, his very efforts to stop Donald Trump from becoming president may have sealed that very fate. Lisa Page, Strzok´s co-worker and lover, breathlessly texted him, "[Trump´s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" To this, Strzok replied, "No. No he won´t. We´ll stop it." Page and Strzok have become notorious for the anti-Trump texts they sent to one another. The IG report cited these texts as

Actor Peter Fonda apologized Wednesday afternoon for a threatening tweet in which he said Americans upset with the White House´s separation of illegal-immigrant families ´should rip Barron Trump from his mother´s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.´ The first lady´s office conferred with U.S. Secret Service about the incident. The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly.

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials.

The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America."

While Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s damning report proves the FBI colluded with the Hillary campaign to exonerate her in the email investigation, Democrats are bombarding Americans with fabricated propaganda about Trump’s “heartless” immigration policy, which consists of the president enforcing the already established laws, Limbaugh explained Tuesday. “We are smack dab in the middle of another manufactured media crisis about the supposed ‘Donald Trump, that purposely, wontedly,
