Blacks in Houston Plan to Execute Lone Whites submitted by Charlie_Prime to politics

This is the exact kind of reaction the power brokers are looking for. Turn every shade of skin against the other. Roger Ailes started harping on this theme back when Barack Obama was first elected and has been stirring the pot ever since. "If we don't look out those (insert any color but white, any religion but Christian here) will come after our jobs, our women, our children, our lives". Feed the fear on all sides, flame it with hate and throw in a sprinkle of violence for good measure.

Marketing 101 - Capture their attention with flashy headlines, lure them in with a sense of belonging, keep them with fear tactics by drilling into their heads there is no one else you can trust. And bang, you have an entire swath of society eating out of your hand and making you billions of dollars.

In the meantime, spread hate, fear and well placed racially explosive articles throughout the world press which they own a large portion. Because you will never, ever see one of the instigators of this hatred walking alone in Houston or any other place on the planet. They are safe, the rest of society can go shoot each other until there's no one left but them and their conscripts.

Be careful what you wish for, it may not be as awesome as you think.

Reddit's Former CEO Is Fed Up with Trolls, But Not Its Anonymous Gun Dealers - "A fresh look at r/GunsForSale this week...available from unidentifiable sellers eager to do deals in person" submitted by BlurryScreen to MeanwhileOnReddit

Some people shouldn't own guns, some shouldn't own home canning equipment, even more shouldn't be allowed to drive. I don't know the statistics but I think more Americans don't own guns than those who do. And honestly, I'm more afraid of being killed by the teenage girl who's texting her friends while driving daddy's SUV. Non-gun owner here, but maybe some day.

Germany in a state of SIEGE: gangs of men roam the streets and young German women told to cover up, the mood is changing submitted by dildonkers to news

Where are the German nationals pushing back against this if the government is unable to act. Don't the citizens have the energy to get out and counter this? Have entire neighborhoods out on the streets, showing they have ownership so these packs can't go roaming alone. Shine a big huge light on them every single day and night, let them know in no uncertain terms they are not going to get away with this 3rd world crap. Get outside and make a difference, it doesn't have to violent, it just needs to show the numbers. There are probably leaders within these camps, they need to be held accountable for their peoples actions and no one in a leadership role wants to be associated with filth. So quick to blame others for our problems, so slow to act upon it ourselves.

Swedish police are scrambling to defend the national immigrant population against angry natives as tensions boil over following a double murder in an IKEA superstore this week submitted by erowidtrance to news

Perhaps a gratitude examination should be given before asylum is granted. The dictators of these countries are probably just tossing out their trash and the rest of the world gets stuck with it. I wish there were an efficient way to get their more peaceful kindred to point out the trouble makers and give those guys a one way ticket back to the sweaty land under the balls. Is it true they were angry because of a possible deportation, and this is how they react, WTF?

Man released after spending 1/3 of his life in prison for Marijuana. submitted by PolishPandaBear to news

syllovespan 2 points -2 points (+0|-2) ago

Except the private prison business isn't actually private. The two largest prison for profits are publicly traded:

Corrections Corp of America (NYSE:CXW)

The GEO Group (NYSE:GEO)


The crux of this is many mutual funds hold this stock and most retirement accounts like 401k's, etc., are comprised of mutual funds. If you work for a corp you're likely investing in a 401K and it's possible that 401K has private prison for profit stocks.

For profit businesses are for the purpose of increasing shareholders wealth, that's what 'for profit' is, right? It's safe to say many people don't know they are contributing and dare I say profiting from those things they find morally objectionable. Crazy.

Here are links to the main shareholders of GEO group stocks as an example and another article discussing private prisons and illegal immigrants from 2013.

Haha, I wouldn't be surprised by this. And not taking those iron supplements the doctor prescribed.
