Ten People Are Arrested After Hundreds of Anti-Immigration Protesters Clashed With Police in Dover

dover

Ten people have been arrested during clashes between anti-immigration protesters and police in Dover on Saturday after a record 409 desperate asylum seekers crossed the Channel in one day this week.

Hundreds of campaigners were confronted by groups of pro-migrant protesters in a counter-demonstration following the arrival of 5,600 refugees in small boats this year.

The protest had blocked the A20 dual carriageway, the main route in and out of the port, which has since been reopened.

Rival protests took place in the Kent town just days after a record 416 migrants made it to the UK after crossing the English Channel.

Berlin Bans Protest Against COVID Restrictions, Deploys Police

berlin

Authorities in Berlin have banned a series of planned demonstrations against the country’s COVID-19 lockdown measures – claiming they were organized by “right-wing extremists” and would lead to the spread of the virus. The city is deploying several thousand police around the German capital this weekend, citing threats.

The German city notably did not ban a June Black Lives Matter protest  in which approximately 15,000 people turned out.

Meanwhile, the Assembly for Freedom had 17,000 registered demonstrators for the August 29 event before Berlin shut it down.

Leftists Protest Postmaster General’s DC Home Over Trump Support (Video)

idiots

Protesters gathered outside of US Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s home in Washington DC to give him a “wake up call” and object to his support for President Donald Trump, as well as recent changes made within the postal system.

Angry demonstrators marched to DeJoy’s DC condo on Saturday morning making plenty of noise and holding signs calling for universal mail-in voting in November’s presidential election. Some called for DeJoy to be “deposed” and for USPS to “deliver DeMail” — a play on the official’s name.

“DeJoy has fired or reassigned much of the existing USPS leadership and ordered the removal of mail sorting machines that are fundamental to the functioning of the postal service,” activist group Shut Down DC, which organized the protest, said in a statement. The group added that mail delivery is “slowing down under other decisions made by DeJoy” including eliminating overtime for postal workers.

NYC’s COVID Contact Tracing Will Ask About Outdoor Dining, Not Protests

contact

The city’s coronavirus tracing program will start asking people if they’ve been at outdoor bars and restaurants to help understand the spike in cases among those between the ages of 20 and 29 — even though health officials never asked if people attended the George Floyd protests, The Post has learned.

“Patients are asked who they spent close time with socially. To ensure we’re adapting our program to New Yorkers’ changing routes, patients will explicitly be asked if they spent time with their close contact at a bar or restaurant as the city continues to reopen,” said City Hall spokeswoman Avery Cohen said, while reaffirming they won’t be asked about demonstrations.

“People are asked to name any gatherings they have attended to help identify cases related to specific events,” Cohen said. “Regarding bars and restaurants, we’re adapting the program to match the increased mobility of New Yorkers, especially those in the younger age brackets.”

Researchers Say 26 Million Black Lives Matter Protesters Did Not Increase Spread of COVID-19

While much of the country was in some state of lock down due to COVID-19, up to 26 million Americans took to the streets in protest in what officials say may be the single largest protest movement in American history.

Despite up to 26 million Americans foregoing social distancing, officials say that protests did not increase the spread of COVID-19.

Estimates now suggest between 15 to  26 million Americans have taken part in the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests that have sometimes devolved into riots following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

Officials believe that Black Lives Matter may now be the largest protest movement in American history.

De Blasio Says BLM Protests and Church Are ‘Apples and Oranges’

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio dismissed the First Amendment, saying it’s perfectly acceptable for BLM protests and riots to ensue, but attending church is unacceptable during the COVID-19 pandemic.

De Blasio joined CNN last Wednesday to defend his arbitrary decision to shut down churches but allow BLM “protests” to sweep the city, which was recently ruled unconstitutional by an Albany court.

When asked about the court’s ruling, de Blasio dismissed it as “just wrong,” calling the BLM protests a “different reality.”

“We worked with the religious leadership of this city for months, Cardinal Dolan and the Catholic church and so many other religious leaders who are in full agreement that it was not time to bring back religious services because of the danger it would cause to their congregants,” de Blasio said.

Africans Protest Gates’ COVID Vaccine Testing

Demonstrators in South Africa Wednesday rallied against COVID-19 test trials being carried out by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s GAVI Alliance.

Protesters standing in front of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg where the tests will take place burned their face masks and carried signs blasting GAVI’s choice of the South African people for the continent’s first clinical trials.

“#Gates we are not your lab rats,” one sign read, adding, “AFRICA is not your playground.”

“#No to Gates poison… we don’t want the gates of hell here,” another sign stated.

“We NOT guinea pigs… NO unsafe VACCINE,” declared another protest sign.

Another sign, simply said, “#Fuck the Vaccine.”

Tampa Protesters Demand Officials Resign, Disband Police

morons

An overflow crowd came Tuesday to the Tampa Convention Center to demand the city’s police force be defunded or abolished, Mayor Jane Castor relinquish her post and Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan be fired.

The long line of speakers waiting to address the Citizen Review Board — the city’s police oversight board — also disputed the city’s narrative that protestors have been violent. The speakers say it has been officers who have used excessive force against peaceful demonstrators who have been marching against police brutality and racism since May 30.

“The time for conversation has passed,” Matthew Yampolsky said. “It’s time to move past this archaic BS and get rid of the cops.”

Right-wing protesters standing in front of an exit to Martin Luther King Jr Blvd shut down the I-95 in Wilmington, Delaware on Monday to hold a “Victims’ Lives Matter” protest.

Protesters said they were there to counter “the greatest hoax of our generation, the myth of black victimization and the hoax of white racism.”

Protesters were seen holding up signs of David Dorn, Justine Damond, Serge Fournier, Pat Underwood, Tessa Majors, Sebastian Dvorak, Reese Bowman, Erma Kaylor and more.

Alexandra Ocasio Cortez says that latinos are also black.

Bestselling author Colin Flaherty, who led the protest, livestreamed video of the event on Twitter.

Police Misconduct Claims Fall to 10-Year Low in New York City

sign

While riots and looting continue nationwide in protest of the death of George Floyd, there is nary a fact to be found about police brutality or police misconduct.

Perhaps that’s because the facts don’t fall in favor of the ongoing assault of the police in the United States that is taking place.

For example, New York Police last year saw their misconduct claims fall to a 10 year low. Allegations of false arrest, false imprisonment and excessive force are the lowest they have been at any point in the previous decade, according to new data from the New York Comptroller’s Office.

3,612 police related claims were filed in 2019, down from a high of 5,643 in 2014. New York City paid a total of $95.2 million last year to settle the claims, which is down from a high of $163.7 million in 2017.
