    The MSM is ridiculously reckless. They say this guy made this hand gesture on purpose. Doesn't look like it. Besides that, the entire OK hand signal as a white power gesture is fake news. It was created by 4chan to troll the media and show just how gullible they are. It worked so well, they still run with the claim. The left has gone mad. Even the ADL recognizes it as a hoax and they're offended by everything.

    This whole White Power conspiracy thing was raised last week by the liberal Twittersphere against Zina Bash on day one of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. Ms. Bash is an attorney of Jewish/Mexican decent who has worked for Brett Kavanaugh in the past.

    Some conspiracy nuts have nothing better to do except watch media feeds and try to stir up garbage against innocent Americans. I wonder what they think of 3%’rs who also use that symbol.

    So what if he did make a "white power" sign?
    What's wrong with that?

    Nobody says a word when some gang member flashes a sign, and many of those are racist.
    Nobody says a word when some black person gives the black power salute.

    Same problem if a black member of our armed forces made a black power sign while working in an official capacity , are you really that stupid?
    However the circle Game is not a white power sign so the whole premise is flawed

    I must be.
    And getting more stupid everyday.

    Political correctness is going one way, and I'm going the other way.
    If that's "stupid" then I'm the stupidest person on Earth.

    I work in a Federal prison. I have heard & seen every form of racism and gang signs. This "white power hand gesture" is NOT one of them.

    I have asked many of the white gang members about this. They think it is just a "OK" sign.

    :cool:

    "A (Black Power) military salute


    View attachment 450452


    When 16 black female cadets at West Point raised their fists in a pre-graduation photo last week, it unleashed a torrent of controversy when it was posted on social media. Critics suspected that the women were expressing solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, which might violate the military's prohibition on political activity while in uniform. Defenders countered that the women were simply displaying strength in sisterhood, mimicking Beyoncé and other pop stars.

    After an investigation, the military concluded, according to the Army Times, that it was an inappropriate, but not necessarily political act, which would have violated military rules. As one cadet told the Army Times, it was "a spur of the moment" pose with the intent to showcase the "awesome black women in our class."

    "Obama invites 'Black Power' protesters to White House Olympic ceremony

    [​IMG]

    WASHINGTON — President Obama paid tribute to the "Black Power" protesters at the 1968 Olympics Thursday during a White House ceremony to honor the 2016 Olympic team.

    The White House extended the invitation at the time of a national debate over San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose decision to take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem has sparked a heated debate over the Black Lives Matter movement.

    At a town hall-style forum with military families in Virginia Thursday, Obama said Kaepernick should be sensitive to the feelings of Gold Star families hurt by his refusal to stand for the flag — but also that people should understand the frustrations of black Americans about the shooting of unarmed African-Americans by police.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...esters-white-house-olympic-ceremony/91275198/ "



    Here's the deal- blacks can flash "Black Power" racial gestures and white people cannot
    even say "ok" with sign language if they even mean to. This is what the progressive establishment has deem
    appropriate for Americans. It is time to remove these fascist progressives from power.
