What did Donald J. Trump want to do with civil rights protestors in the USA? "Crack their skulls...shoot them!" [Watch this YouTube video]:
FIRE RYDER FOR RACIST REMARKS: Nassau County County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder must resign over his racist comments regarding Black and Brown children. If Ryder fails to resign. Nassau County Executive Laura Curran must fire Commissioner Ryder for his racist remarks. If County Executive Curran fails to fire Commissioner Ryder over his racist comments. Then no respectable Nassau County resident should vote for a County Executive who fails to remove a Police Commissioner who promotes racism. We need highly substantive Police reform in Nassau County, N.Y., NOW. The Police reform must start with the removal of Police Commissioner Ryder for rogue and racist Nassau County Police Officers to be held totally accountable for their terroristic injustices against Akbar Rogers. Ahmad Tillery, Matthew Felix, and many more Black and Brown people in Nassau County, New York!!!

When Grandpa Al Lewis was doing his radio show on WBAI, it was around this time you would hear King Curtis playing, and Grandpa would be in the background yelling: "come on King!" At the beginning of his show, he and his wife Karen would read letters from those who were in prison, or the gulag, as Grandpa would say. He was a walking encyclopedia of American history. I first learned about General Smedley D. Butler, who wrote War is a Racket from Grandpa, during the buildup to the Iraqi War. He would talk about the FBI "Black Bag" operations where agents were picking locks, safe cracking, fingerprinting, taking photos, and audio-video surveillance. He'd tell the story about how names were left on documents that exposed agent provocateurs in the African American community. He'd also talk about how Fred Astaire and many other Hollywood dancers would go up to 1930 Harlem nightclubs and copy moves from dancers like Buck and Bubbles. He'd also tell stories about riding shotgun with W.E.B. Du Bois. This Grandpa Al was not the person you knew from his years as a television and movie star, this was the Grandpa who put the Green Party on the map when he ran for Governor of New York. "We don't inherit the world from our ancestors, we borrow it from our kids!" was what he said when he first ran. His frequent guests were Father Lawrence Lucas and Omowale Clay from the December 12th Movement, who were under surveillance by then US Atty. for the SDNY Rudy Giuliani. Once when radio station WBAI was in the middle of a takeover, he kicked the newly appointed program director off his show. Grandpa was a real firebrand! He would go to Cuba every year, and when he returned, invariably the "Cuba Boys" who later we found out were retired firemen, would call his show and scream out: "go back to Cuba!" Grandpa was also on the front lines of prison reform, especially the Rockefeller Drug Laws which he called draconian. And I'll tell you this: y'all better stop matching his photo with Ted Cruz, because Grandpa will come back and get you! Happy birthday Grandpa!
The racism of these NY city cops even surprised me, and I'm originally from New York (born and raised). The audacity of their demonic racism is amazing! {study the attached photo]
