Reject Racial Hysteria

New York’s new U.S. Attorney should ignore the paranoid politics of elites and focus on prosecuting violent crime.

On November 19, 2021, Damian Williams was sworn in as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. At 41, Williams is an impressive figure: A.B. from Harvard, M.Phil. from University of Cambridge, and J.D. from Yale Law School, followed by a prestigious clerkship with then-Judge Merrick Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme Court. He then served in the same office he now leads, rising to head its Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force.

Williams is also black, which was evidently a key qualification for New York senator Chuck Schumer, who recommended that President Biden nominate Williams and two other black lawyers as U.S. Attorneys for Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Buffalo, respectively, “to ensure this state—and this country—deliver a fairer, more inclusive and just future for each and every one of us.”

Though Williams has made history as Manhattan’s first black U.S. attorney, he is now off to an inauspicious start, for reasons having to do with the racial politics behind his appointment. At his investiture, Williams said that he was “proud to announce today that I have created a brand-new civil-rights unit in the criminal division of my office.” This is not controversial in and of itself, though it bears noting that the U.S. Department of Justice already houses the Civil Rights Division, which has a Criminal Section that “investigates and prosecutes cases throughout the United States involving the interference with liberties and deprivation of rights defined in the Constitution or federal law.” The concerning issue is that Williams justified the creation of this unit, in part, on a fiction.

“You know and I know we are living in troubled times,” Williams declared at his swearing in at the Harlem Armory. “White supremacist groups are on the march. Anti-Semitism is on the march. Anti-Asian bias is on the march. Abuse of the most vulnerable in our society is on the march.”

School board to pay thousands of dollars sum to settle with anti-woke, Christian teacher

‘Public employees cannot be forced to contradict their core beliefs just to keep a job’

The school board in Loudoun County, Virginia, has agreed to a permanent injunction and to pay $20,000 to settle claims brought by teacher Tanner Cross, who was punished by officials for expressing his Christian worldview in a public meeting.

An announcement Monday from Alliance Defending Freedom said the injunction permanently prohibits the Loudoun County School Board from retaliating against Cross for expressing “his constitutionally protected views on the board’s transgender policy.”

The agreement is a permanent resolution of protection obtained by Cross earlier when a county circuit court granted his request for preliminary relief against retaliation, which was affirmed by the state Supreme Court.

He had publicly objected at a public school-board meeting to then then-proposed Policy 8040, which forces teachers to violate their beliefs by requiring them to address “transgender and gender-expansive” students by their chosen pronouns rather than the ones consistent with their biological sex.

Ann Coulter: Leftist Message on Kyle Rittenhouse Is ‘We Are Supposed to Just Stand There and Be Murdered’

Ann Coulter, conservative commentator and author, described the left-wing subtext of Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial as a demand for conservatives “to just stand there and be murdered” when attacked by leftists.

“We are supposed to just stand there and be murdered,” Coulter said on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “That’s our obligation, because the media decided they don’t like us.”

Coulter highlighted Rittenhouse’s presence of mind and skilled shooting during the events captured on video.

She remarked, “There are a lot of people Kyle could have shot if it’s just, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m panicked, I’m shooting!’ Oh no, he was very precise shooting someone who was about to kill him, to take his gun, kill him, kill others. I was thinking — as I often do, as I’m sure you and your listeners do — thank God for cell phone cameras.”

Coulter noted that Gaige Grosskreutz, a witness in the trial, was essentially forced to admit the truth of events due to existence of video documentation. She speculated that Grosskreutz would have lied about the events in the absence of video evidence.

Black Americans Sue U.S. Farms for Replacing Them with Foreign Workers: ‘It’s Like Being Robbed of Your Heritage’

Black Americans who spent most of their lives working on Mississippi farms are suing their former employer after they were replaced by foreign workers on the H-2A visa program.

The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, accuses Pitts Farms of laying off a number of black Americans, only to replace them with foreign visa workers from South Africa.

The H-2A visa program allows U.S. farms to annually outsource an unlimited number of American jobs to foreign workers who can extend their stay for up to three years. The foreign families of H-2A visa workers can also come to the U.S. on H-4 visas.

In 1997, a little more than 16,000 foreign visa workers were imported to take American jobs on U.S. farms. By 2020, that number has ballooned to a record 213,400 foreign visa workers — an increase in the H-2A visa program of more than 1,200 percent in less than 25 years.

Data shows U.S. farms use the H-2A visa program to import cheaper, foreign visa workers.

Letter from Jan. 6 Prisoner Describes Gulag-like Conditions in D.C. Jail

What Nathan DeGrave describes sounds less like a jail in the nation’s capital and more like the Turkish prison featured in Midnight Express.

One of the January 6 protesters locked up in Washington, D.C., has published a long letter describing the brutal conditions there.

What Nathan DeGrave describes sounds less like a jail in the nation’s capital and more like the Turkish prison featured in Midnight Express.

Degrave, who faces a 12-count indictment in connection with entering the U.S. Capitol during the mostly peaceful protest, tells a tale of beatings, starvation, poor hygiene, and lack of medical care.

Federal authorities seem to be permitting the savagery to punish the prisoners in violation of the Eighth Amendment to the federal Constitution before they are tried. The conditions might explain why D.C. corrections officials blocked a congressional delegation from entering the facility.

White male marketing VP at North Carolina hospital wins $10million ‘reverse discrimination’ payout after he was replaced by two women – one of whom is black – as part of diversity and inclusion program

David Duvall was fired by Novant Health in South Carolina in 2018, five days before his fifth work anniversary. At the time, he was the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications. He says he was not given a reason for the firing, and was even told by his supervisor that he had done nothing wrong. Duvall’s role was split in two and given to two women; Kate Everett and Vicky Free.

A white male marketing vice president from a North Carolina has been awarded a $10million ‘reverse discrimination’ payout from the hospital which fired him and replaced him with two women, one of whom is black. 

David Duvall sued Novant Health in North Carolina, where he’d worked for five years as the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications, and was lauded by colleagues and supervisors, in 2018. 

He says he was inexplicably terminated just days before reaching his five year work anniversary, a milestone that would have awarded him a higher severance payout than what he was given. 

He was replaced by two women – Kate Everett, a white woman who had worked with him and was promoted to take the role of Chief PR and Communications Officer and Vicky Free, a black woman who was given the role of Chief Marketing Officer.

Duvall, in his complaint, said that while both women were qualified for the job, they were no more qualified than he was.
