The Sixteenth Street Baptist Church Bombing

On the early Sunday morning of September 15, 1963, Ku Klux Klan member, Robert Edward Chambliss stood a few blocks away from the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. On this morning, five girls were changing into their choir robes in the church basement.

At 10:19 a.m., a bomb exploded, killing four of the girls and injuring twenty people. The four girls who died were eleven-year old Denise McNair, and fourteen year olds Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley.

The church bombing was a racially motivated terrorist attack on the 16th Street Baptist Church. It took place less than a week after President John F. Kennedy placed the Alabama National Guard under federal command in order to secure the court-ordered integration of public schools in Birmingham, Mobile and Tuskegee. The crisis over school desegregation had consumed the city since the beginning of the school year, with four bombings in the four weeks preceding. A total of 21 unsolved bombings over 8 years had already given the city the derisive nickname, “Bombingham.”

The three-story 16th Street Baptist Church near Kelly Ingram Park, while not the most inflammatory congregation, had served as a rallying point for many civil rights activities, especially during the Birmingham campaign. Members suspected that the building would be targeted by the Klan. Telephoned threats had been received since May, following April’s mass demonstrations. A warning the week before the bombing prompted four members to stand guard outside during evening services. On the day of the bombing there was no warning. A church secretary reported that the phone rang many times, but no one was on the line.

The deadly church bombing proved to be a turning point of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, provoking horror and outrage that expanded the national campaign to correct injustices. Many consider the event to have provided the impetus for passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is not a racist as this issue is not about race. To some however she will be seen as discriminating against people because of their religion or more realistically perhaps, their surnames.To me she is a person fearful of a political ideology, an ideology that I too fear. Would you put a deadly weapon in the hands of a person whose ideology is the total opposite of democracy and freedom? Is that a risk you would be willing to take?

KKK?s former Grand Dragon caught nuts deep in black male hooker

History of violence: Cross originally went by the name Frazier Glenn Miller (pictured in 1985) and created two racist and anti-Semitic groups and was once caught with a black prostitute who was a man masquerading as a woman

History of violence: Cross originally went by the name Frazier Glenn Miller (pictured in 1985) and created two racist and anti-Semitic groups and was once caught with a black prostitute who was a man masquerading as a woman

Authorities have uncovered a lot of astounding details regarding former Ku Klux Klan leader Frazier Glenn Miller, who is accused of killing three people this month at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas.

The?former Grand Dragon of the KKK was been caught nuts deep in a black male hooker back in 1986.

Frazier Glenn Cross, the man accused of murder in the shootings of three people outside Jewish facilities in Kansas last week was, for all practical purposes, born at the age of 49. ? ?

The federal government gave him that name when he was released from prison in 1990, along with a new social security number and a new place to live, not far from the Missouri River in western Iowa.

The idea was to erase any connection to the man he had been before: Frazier Glenn Miller. White Nationalist leader. Spewer of hate. Federal informant.

?I joined the family in Sioux City, Iowa,? Miller wrote later in his self-published autobiography. ?I enrolled in truck driving school?and I?ve been trucking ever since. And I love it. After prison, the freedom of the open road is gloriously exhilarating.?

This guy is a piece of work, going back decades. A life of hate…that is likely to be ended by the death penalty in Kansas.

In the early morning hours of April 30, 1987, more than three dozen federal and state law enforcement agents surrounded a mobile home in Ozark, Missouri. ?A van recently purchased by Miller in Louisiana had been spotted outside by an agent the day before.

A volley of tear gas was fired and then, just after 7 a.m, ?four men emerged and gave themselves up.

Among them was Miller, the founder of Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan?and the paramilitary White Patriot Party in North Carolina. The United States Marshals Service had issued a nationwide bulletin seeking Miller?s arrest after he disappeared while appealing his conviction for criminal contempt.

Agents recovered hand grenades, automatic rifles, pistols and flak jackets inside the trailer, according to FBI statements at the time. Explosives experts from nearby Fort Leonard Wood were called in to detonate a box containing about twenty pipe bombs.? Read more »

Why hate speech laws are an affront to society

Earnest, usually lefty academics and vested interests push for ‘hate speech’ laws to be enacted. There is even a campaign to did such a thing here, and mark my words if Labour and the Greens get into government they will do it too.

These sorts of law are actually an attack on freedom of speech and a cudgel to silence dissenting speech and though.

Bob Dylan is now a target of such laws.

French authorities have filed preliminary charges against Bob Dylan over a 2012 interview in which he is quoted comparing Croatians to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

The charges of “public insult and inciting hate” were filed against the musician in mid-November, Paris prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said on Tuesday.? Read more »

How to defeat nasty with nice

Getting Obama with a death-ray?

Two blokes have been arrested in the US for plotting to kill Barack Obama with a death-ray. Seriously..a death-ray?

Captain_proton_death_ray

TWO men have been arrested over a plot to kill US President Barack Obama with a giant homemade death ray.

The FBI arrested 49-year-old Glendon Scott Crawford, from Galway, New York, and his friend Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, New York, foiling the pair’s plan to kill Obama, who Crawford blamed for the recent Boston marathon bombings.

Crawford had built a homemade X-ray machine that used deadly amounts of radiation to kill targets and could be detonated remotely,?ABC news reports.

The FBI said the device would have been both “functional” and “lethal”. They said Crawford had called his design “Hiroshima on a light switch”.? Read more »

Fran on The Standard

Fran O’Sullivan pours scorn on the anonymous cowards at The Standard:

Lynn Prentice and the authors of The Standard

I experienced a bit of this myself last week when the website, thestandard.org.nz, branded me an “enemy of the people” for supporting the sale.

To my mind the deal provides much greater upside for New Zealand than many of the other farms sales which have gone to foreign interests in recent years.

The Standard is reputed to have been started by a bunch of Labour Party activists. Most posters won’t sign their names to their comments because they are frightened they will be held responsible. They are frankly cowards.

I finally branded them the “Ku Klux Klan” of the internet world on Twitter. A bunch of lily-livered word jocks who hide behind their virtual cloaks of anonymity.

But I would have engaged them directly in the argument if they had signed their names.

The website’s policy is to retain anonymity because they are frightened their commenters will be persecuted by employers or landlords – whoever – if their identities are made known.

No doubt their Grand Wizard, Lynn Prentice will burst forth with some vitriolic rant that The Standard is some code and a machine and how silly of Fran to think otherwise.
