Quick reminder: Disney hires pedophiles

One would think that of all companies that should have a zero tolerance policy for pedophiles it would be a company that profits entirely off of children.  Although when you think about it, it isn’t that surprising that pedos would be naturally drawn to a place that has kids around all the time.  The lion will go where the gazelles feed.

Just last week, Disney announced that they have rehired James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3.  You may recall he was fired for some controversial tweets about child rape.  And while he tried to pass it off as a joke, that excuse falls kind of flat.  Joke or not, no person who directs children movies should be joking about child rape.  Any normal person would know this.  The shady tweets are only part of the story.

Disney has done worse though with their personnel decisions.  They re-hired convicted child rapist Brian Peck.  He worked on “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” along with several other children’s shows.

There is a LOT of shady stuff surrounding Bryan Singer.  Check out An Open Secret, a documentary on the very dark side of Hollywood.  Singer features prominently in it.  And of course there is Stoney Westmoreland, who played the grandfather on Andi Mack.

It came after the actor who portrayed the grandfather of a middle school girl in popular show Andi Mack, began communicating with someone he believed to be a 13-year-old, after they matched with on Grindr, an app commonly used for arranging hookups, according to a police affidavit.

The affidavit states that the middle-aged man requested naked photos from the person.

He also sent pornographic images in return, it is alleged.

Now he is facing charges including attempted exploitation of a minor and enticing a minor.

Westmoreland later attempted to meet the for sex by using a ride-sharing app to order the victim a car to the Little America Hotel, it is claimed.

However the minor was in fact an undercover investigator. Two novelty sex toys were seized from the hotel room.

These are only a few examples.  This is not a one off thing.  Pedos seems to gravitate to Disney and Disney seems to hire and welcome them with open arms.  Why?  Smart money would be on the fact that Disney is probably rife with pedos and maybe run by pedos too.  Not a place I would want my kids to be around.  Nor would I want them watching any programming from a company that seems to be okay with grown adults abusing and molesting children.

San Francisco is withholding surveillance videos of crime to avoid stereotypes.

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — In the last three months, there have been at least three robberies on BART involving groups of teenagers.

“I think people are genuinely concerned — they are fearful about the stories that have come out about the recent attacks, the assaults, the thefts,” said Debora Allen, who is a member of the BART Board of Directors.

April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, beating up two;

June 28: A group of four kids assaulted a passenger and made off with a cell phone at Dublin; and

June 30: A woman on a train with about a dozen teenagers had her phone snatched by one them before the group got off at the Coliseum stop. Thankfully, a good Samaritan was on hand to retrieve the phone.

So far, BART has refused to turn over surveillance video for any of these incidents.

llen told us the agency issued an explanation for why it is being tight-lipped about the thefts.

“To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district,” she was told. “And in addition it would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.”

According to a memo distributed to BART Directors, the agency won’t do a press release on the June 30 theft because it was a “petty crime” that would make BART look “crime ridden.” Furthermore, it would “unfairly affect and characterize riders of color, leading to sweeping generalizations in media reports.”

The memo was from BART Assistant General Manager Kerry Hamill.

Allen emailed Hamill, “I don’t understand what role the color of one’s skin plays in this issue [of whether to divulge information]. Can you explain?”

Hamill responded, “If we were to regularly feed the news media video of crimes on our system that involve minority suspects, particularly when they are minors, we would certainly face questions as to why we were sensationalizing relatively minor crimes and perpetuating false stereotypes in the process.” And added her opinion of the media: “My view is that the media’s real interest in the videos of youth phone snatching incidents isn’t the desire for transparency but rather the pursuit of ratings. They know that video of these events will drive clicks to their websites and viewers to their programs because people are motivated by fear.”

Allen says scared passengers aren’t being unreasonable — being on a BART train is a vulnerable position.

“This is BART, people are sort of trapped in this train for awhile and they have a right to see what could potentially happen.”

She says all this raises questions, “What is the priority of BART? Is the safety of the passenger — of all passengers — is that a lesser priority than the race bias issue?”

This is a microcosm of one of western civilizations many problems.  We would rather commit societal suicide than potentially offend <insert minority group here>.  Isn’t that telling anyways, if every single crime is committed by the same group of people every single time?  Don’t we have a right to know that?  Of course they don’t think so.  That would ruin the narrative they’re trying to push that diversity is our strength and multiculturalism is amazing.  If people really knew the truth they would not be as open and willing.  They’re literally prioritizing the feelings of criminals over the safety of the general public.  Let that sink in.

And by the way, stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason.  They often times provide a useful heuristic.  And it would be cool if we held everyone in our society to the same standard, no?

Chicago the most corrupt city in US

Not exactly shocking news here.

Chicago may be known as the “Second City,” but it remains Number 1 in the ranking of most corrupt big cities in the nation, according to a new report.

The report, titled “Corruption in Chicago and Illinois,” released Monday from the University of Illinois at Chicago notes that while there’s been a decline in recent years of federal convictions for public corruption, the Windy City still leads other localities.

“Additionally, Illinois remains the third most corrupt state when compared on a per capita basis to other large states and the District of Columbia,” the report’s authors note.

The group used the most recent figures from the Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section, which found that there were a total of 25 public corruption convictions during 2017 in the Northern District of Illinois, which includes all of Chicago and the northern third of Illinois. That was down from 30 in 2016 and down an average of 33.6 per year over the last 10 years.

“There were a total of 34 cases of public corruption convictions in all of Illinois, proving that public corruption is not just a big city problem,” the authors noted.

Since 1976, when the DOJ began keeping track of public corruption statistics, there were 1,731 people convicted of public corruption in the Chicago area. In the same time period, there were 1,534 people in Los Angeles, 1,327 in New York, 1,165 in Miami and 1,159 in Washington D.C.

“These five districts, Chicago, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Miami and Washington D.C. led all of the 93 federal judicial districts for the 47-year period since 1976,” according to the report.

Let’s take a quick look at who has been running Chicago for the past 47 years, shall we?

 

Probably just a coincidence.  Totally coincidental too that all of those five districts are heavily blue.  I seem to remember some other guy coming out of Chicago who rose up the ranks too around 2008 or so.  Probably totally clean.

St Paul residents arming up

St Paul, Minnesota is traditionally not known as a hotbed for shootings.  That seems to be changing, as many residents are arming up due a summer crime spree.  Via kstp.com:

“They are so scared and to have 24 people in less than two-and-a-half months applying for permits to carry in one area is unheard of,” Gene said.

Dee Walsh told KSTP she’s lived in the North End neighborhood for 38 years and just this week she witnessed a gun incident at a nearby store and an even more frightening experience outside her home last summer.

“There were two cars shooting at each other at the end of the driveway,” Walsh said. “So, I had to run inside and check on my grandson and husband to make sure none of the bullets ended up in the house.”

Walsh said the situation has reached, for her family, a point of no return.

“In my neighborhood, it is gunshots every day. Night, or day, it doesn’t matter and we don’t even go into the backyard anymore, my garden is dying and we are moving,” Walsh said. “We are putting our house up for sale.”

Anyone should hesitate to draw conclusions, but some demographic data for Minnesota shows some revealing trends that may shine some light on the situation.  While these stats may be shocking (or not) or disturbing they still need to be shared and considered in the overall grand scheme.

MinnesotaChangeByRace

Minnesota, like so many other parts of the country, is experiencing a significant change in their demographics.  Minnesota Compass has done a nice job amassing stats and providing trends.  Two in particular that stand out:

Minnesota is home to a smaller share of residents of color than many other states, but the pace of population growth among people of color is relatively quick. Among the 50 states, Minnesota continues to rank among the states with smaller shares of residents of color (38th). The state has seen 20 percent growth in its population of color since 2010 – tenth highest among states.

And

Since 2010, four regions have experienced a net loss of non-Hispanic white residents: Northland, Northwest, Southern, and Southwest. Net gains in residents of color in the Northwest and Southern regions have helped these regions maintain positive population growth. Net gains in residents of color in the other two regions have not been large enough to offset overall population decline.

MinnesotaPOC

Minnesota’s population is seeing a decline in non-Hispanic whites and a significant increase in persons of color.  African Americans and Hispanics in particular continue to make up a greater portion of the overall population.

MinnesotaTrend

Perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but the noticeable increase in shootings coupled with the demographic change should give one pause.  It’s often said that diversity + proximity = war.  Perhaps the magic soil of America hasn’t worked its hocus pocus yet on the new population to create law abiding and productive members of society.  It won’t be very surprising how they explain away these statistics in order to shield the guilty parties, whomever they may be, but the more people wake up to what’s going on the better off we will all be.  I wonder why they just don’t make St Paul a gun-free zone?
