Congressional Staff Protest Deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner

Catalina Camia, USA Today, December 11, 2014

The scene on the steps of the U.S. Capitol was like many across the country: People of color raised their hands in the now familiar “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture to protest the death of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer.

Only this protest in Washington involved congressional aides who briefly walked off their jobs Thursday–angered by the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in New York, and the decision by grand juries in both communities not to indict the police involved.

“Forgive us when we have failed to lift our voices for those who couldn’t speak or breathe for themselves,” said Senate Chaplain Barry Black, as he led the group of about 200 staffers and a few members of Congress in prayer.

The protest was organized by the associations representing black, Hispanic and Asian-American congressional aides and held on a busy day as the House tried to pass a massive spending bill to keep the government running.

Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and his counterparts on the Judiciary and Homeland Security panels have asked for congressional hearings on the Brown and Garner incidents.

    Non-Whites see Whites as their enemy. We are…in the eternal gene wars. We are the new modle human on this planet and they are the old models. Our very presence is a threat to their existence.

    • fgbrunner3

      I do not believe that whites and blacks are enemies.

      • baldowl

        LOL

      • HJ11

        I don’t care what you believe.

        • Rhialto

          Neither do Blacks.

      • dd121

        Sir you missed the sign back there. This site turns right and you took a left turn.

      • Robert Smith

        That’s true. Only whites are enemies according to critical theory. Great point.

      • See The Future

        You are either stupid or crazy or both!

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        That’s about as stupid as saying “I do not believe that it’s dangerous to mix water and electricity.” It’s not about what you believe. It’s facts. Blacks are beating, raping, robbing and killing us and whites aren’t doing a thing in return. You hear Mexicans calling for taking back the land. Youre even seeing Asians flexing their muscles now. And what are young whites doing in response? They are uniting with the nonwhites against their own race. Stupid. The only thing that will save the white race is for whites to unite and force these people out of our lands and NEVER let them in again and NEVER give them any of our resources again.

    • Michigan Patriot

      No, our existence; check out the disproportional black on White crimes , especial on rape & murder the last 70 years.

      • HJ11

        Yes, but check out how many Blacks are dying from killings, disease, etc.

        Whites, when we are in all White communities don’t usually die young. However, what we DO need to do is make more like ourselves. We have to start making fully White babies again.

        • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

          I agree and stop white people from bedding down with blacks, latinas and asians. Whites have to be careful about bedding down with latinos, because according the Henry Louis Gate’s ‘Black in latin America’ many latin Americans have black blood in them. So do not marry anyone from Latin American countries as well unless DNA tests can prove that they are pure white.

        • fgbrunner3

          Young black males are the leading cause of death of young black males.

    • TruthBeTold

      Every day it becomes clearer and clearer.

      It’s US vs. THEM.

      • HJ11

        Yup. Thanks (?) to modern mass transportation, the eternal gene wars have come home to formerly all White nations. This means the gene wars will increase in intensity and many Whites will die and many White family lines will be assimilated into the non-White masses and cease to be White family lines. But, many of us are hopeful that the tide is already turning and that Whites who want to survive AS Whites are starting to see the truth.

      We are the new model human on this planet and they are the old models.

      What?

  • MekongDelta69

    “The protest was organized by the associations representing black, Hispanic and Asian-American congressional aides…”

    What? No Indians? They left out their red bruthaz ‘n’ sistaz?
    Dey be rayciss…

    • Greg Thomas

      They also left out Whites which is inherently racist!

      • MekongDelta69

        That’s a given they’ll always leave out Whites.

        Besides, there’s no ‘association’ which represent White Congressional aides (or anything else, for that matter) anyway.

    • me

      A picture is worth a thousand words. Does anyone doubt that we’re right in the middle of a race war anymore? Does anyone doubt that the White race is on their own now? We are under siege, people, in our own countries! Our ‘government’ aids and abets this ‘true racism’ against White people, while voting for our oppression, silencing, replacement, and genocide. The sooner we realize this, the sooner we can act to either create our own country within the USA, or leave en masse to another land–retaining the hard lessons of misplaced altruism, multiculturalism, and wasted compassion.

      • TruthBeTold

        US vs. THEM

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        Whites in the USA are and won’t do a damn thing. I honestly thought the more blacks attacked us and the more blatant in your face anti white hatred would wake up these liberals and stupid conservatives, but it’s only made them more passive, more self hating and more willing to appease nonwhites. With the exception of whites that think like us, most whites in the USA are toast.

        • Sheik Yerbouti

          Give it time. We can’t hope the truth will counter decades of propaganda overnight. Ferguson should be no surprise for anyone. What was interesting to see was the rise in foolish whites who protest for blacks, but not for whites. I can’t wait to see this bite them all in the asss.

          • brior

  • Henry Higgins

    Will this cure the asiaphiles of their peculiar affliction?
    Whites gotta stand up and stop taking it. The more ‘Diversity’ unites against us, the more united it makes us, and when we finally stand together they will divide and destroy each other.

    • Henry Higgins

      People should be sending this, with the photo as pictures speak louder than words, to every white they know.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Recently I’ve been slamming Asian-Americans for always taking the side of the other nonwhites who hate us.

      To be fair though, while 70% of them voted for Obama in 2012, in last month’s elections 51% of them went for the GOP.

      Let’s see if this marks a major shift in their voting patterns.

      • phillyguy

        Harry ,I think the overwhelming majority of Asians in this country are not on the side of the blacks, asians come here and they open up businesses mostly in inner-city Areas , they have to deal with the inner city negro , hold ups, break ins, ect…I bet the hard working Asian hates the blacks more than we do.

        • me

          Nah. Everybody hates the White man–even the ‘government’.

        • DAWNOFNEWDAY

          They hate whites, but they also dont like each other. Look at the hell Asians who live in majority black areas go through. Yeah, the Hispanics hate whites, but they also are pushing blacks out of their areas. I don’t care about them. I care about whites waking up and having a collective strong, prowhite mindset.

          • Ultimate187

            There’s no indication that Asians actually hate Whites. I think that’s people here extrapolating too far. Not even Nazi Germany thought that, and no one was more racist than they were.

          • HJ11

            The conscious emotion “hate,” isn’t necessary for some other organism to be harmful to our continued existence as White people.

            Germs don’t hate us, but they are a danger to us.

            As far as non-White humans go, their genes compete with our genes for survival and dominance and eventual replacement of all other types of genes. No non-Whites are good for White survival.

      • HJ11

        Asians are not White. In the eternal gene wars that are just as much our enemies as are all other non-Whites.

  • Yves Vannes

    How many of these losers would qualify for a non affirmative action job in the private sector? They are the ones who will help formulate tax, regulatory, educational, industrial, defense, environmental and social policy.

    And we wonder why Washington doesn’t work.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    It’s chilling to see that many nonwhite congressional staffers. We have officially entered third world nation status.

  • Michigan Patriot

    You mean the White taxpayer funded ” Black Caucus ” since its racist, communist inception, thinks Whites are pro-White as our share of the U.S. population as plummeted from a high of 89 % prior to the 1965 Immigration & Reform Act ( of treason & non-representation ) to the present 62 % and falling like a rock , plus Obummer’s racist open borders amnesty. I would hate to see what America would look like if our traitorous politicians were anti-White !

    Most protesters are overwhelmingly black. Even from the photo that is included in this specific AmRen entry, we can see that most protesters are black.

    Yes, I did see several white protesters and Asian protesters, but they are a minority.

    If there is one group of which I did not see any Hands-Up Don’t Shoot rioters, it is East Asian males. I only saw one Asian female protester in Times Square

    • Korean guy

      I refuse to waste even a minute of my life to be a part of this borderline retarded protests.

      If I ever see someone who needs my help, of course, I will give him or her a hand, but I am convinced I will never be a part of this Hands Up I am retarded protests. None of East Asian men I know is ever a part of it either. Of course, we have heard of what is happening, but no East Asian boy I know is doing this.

      I have better things to do. Others need my time.

      • Magician

        That’s my boy!

    Most people simply don’t care; that is why negroes and liberals are ‘in a wad’ and trying to increase the annoyance of their ‘demonstrations’.

    I still don’t give a crap–just don’t make me fear for my life; self defense without hesitation.

    • DAWNOFNEWDAY

      I’ve told people if these thugs march down my street, I will open fire on them. If they hold up traffic, I will plow right into them.

  • Greg Thomas

    Therefore, every member of diversity and race has representation in our government, except for WHITES. This is inherently racist and most be rectified! When do we get a group representing our collective interests as White Americans. We do not have a “seat at the table,” resulting in our voices being silenced!

    • phillyguy

      the founding fathers of this once great country are rolling over in their graves , not because of the leftist and the negro dictating national policy against the whites, but because of us who are doing nothing about it.

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        Exactly, phillyguy. I’m not mad at the nonwhites as much as I am the white traitors and white cowards. We can whine about what some race is doing to us, but we must ask ourselves, “What are we going to do to stop it?”

  • “The protest was organized by the associations representing black, Hispanic and Asian-American congressional aides”

    Maybe this will help wake up a few who fondly believe that when the Third World gets a demographic headlock on the U.S. government that at least Asians will be on our side.

    • me

      Exactly! Whites are on their own, but we’re too collectively stupid to realize this. All races in a multicultural society will fight to be top dog, no matter if the will NEVER achieve what White people can.

    • eldoradocreekskipper

      There is a book about this: Servitors of Empire: Studies in the Dark Side of Asian America.

    • DAWNOFNEWDAY

      None of the races will take our side and I’ve got interest in it either. Why do whites incessantly need approval from nonwhites? I’m sick of it. It’s just as bad as the liberals and RINOs. Furthermore, I don’t think most whites in the USA will wake up. The more anti white this country has gotten, the more I’m seeing and hearing whites–particularly young whites–uniting with blacks.

      • “I don’t think most whites in the USA will wake up. The more anti white this country has gotten, the more I’m seeing and hearing whites–particularly young whites–uniting with blacks.”

        Good point. Although most Whites who love minorities make sure that they themselves live in White neighborhoods. As the demographic tsunami continues, that will only be possible for the rich. We will see how much they love non-Whites when they have to live cheek to jowl with them and install three locks on every door and their kids start getting swallowed up by violent non-Whites at school because their parents cannot afford to send them to private White schools.

      • Sick of it

        Where do you live? The young white boys around here are becoming rather aware. But Southerners live around blacks.

      • Max

        These fools believe that they are buying themselves some degree of security by siding -at least superficially- with “people of color” and who will mostly turn on them instantly once they think they have the advantage. These are the ones who believe in “peace at any price” which they will NOT get even when they make every demanded concession.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Unfortunately these white Argentinians and Chileans , also Uruguay, do not support White America, but call themselves Hispanic because they know they will get freebies for being minorities and they also support illegal immigration.

    • DAWNOFNEWDAY

      Yet once they get here the brown people with Spanish names will see them as the enemy only because of their white skin. It would be like Brits thinking they were the same as Jaimcans because they both speak English.

  • Albert

    It’s a well known fact that the “gentle giant” Mike Brown was not shot while in a position of surrender. The ignorance here is astounding.

    • libertarian1234

      You’ve got that right. Also as astounding is what these pitiful dregs hope to accomplish with their false cries of injustice.

      Is their goal to stop all police scrutiny of non-white criminals? Or are these protests being used as a rallying cry for unification which they believe will give non-whites more power?

      Neither one will do anything, but make their claims appear ludicrous. I hope it keeps up.

  • crockadoodle6

    Rewriting history within days of actual events is a little hard.

  • DAWNOFNEWDAY

    They can all be successful or can kill each other off; the blacks and other races that is. I do not care. Just stay away from us and keep out of our pockets.

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      I’d pay to have them kept in their own ethnic enclaves. Like we used to do.

  • Evette Coutier

    Our black, Hispanic, and Asian officials have made it public, it’s them against us.

  • libertarian1234

    Anybody who objects to having a dumb-down Congress that includes too many non-whites will find much support for their opinions in the actions of these unaware people.

    Not only do they fail to articulate what their positions are beyond an inane assertion about “justice” that doesn’t really apply, they show themselves to be types who do not base their analysis and opinions on reason and logic, which has caused societies to fail in whatever countries they or their ancestors originated from.

    In other words they don’t have successful cultures, because they think and act like children.

    They don’t dominate enough of this society to really matter to any great extent right now, but they will as their numbers grow. We’re unequivocally headed for a Brazilian type society wherein the elites live in gated communities while the rabble rule the streets.

    The next step after that will be sporadic armed conflict that will break up along lines of race, politics, and ethnicity. (Which will probably be going on for years before it explodes into large scale conflict. We’re in the early stages right now, as the experts on civil conflict have pointed out.)

    We can avoid the slow deterioration if the economy collapses. If that happens there will be fighting in every urban center in the country over food, water race and ethnicity. And the gated elites can look forward to being carried atop the mobs for lamp post decorations.

    What a shame it is to know that the one country in the world that offered true democracy and prosperity must now fail economically in order to succeed socially.
    Third world hordes CANNOT maintain a first world society. That’s why they’re fleeing here like rats from a sinking ship.

  • Lee_CPA

    I’m wondering if all these staffers will have their pay docked for the time they spent protesting?

    • What are you, some sort of slash and burn anti-government racist tea party extremist?

  • I read somewhere credible that there are around one million official confrontations between cops and black individuals in the United States every month. Yet, somehow, with all these racist cops out there who are waging a war against black babies’ bodies, virtually all of them end up with the black person not being killed. Darren Wilson just got through responding to a sick black infant when he was on his way responding to the Ferguson Market robbery call. Strangely, he didn’t kill the black infant.

  • It’s just a fact of life. People like to re-live their glory days.

    Just as Al Bundy constantly talked about his four touchdown game in high school, the typical Democrat is stuck on 1964 and the typical Republican is stuck on 1984. Many Democrats are just waiting to recreate the March on Washington and the march from Selma to Birmingham, and many Republicans are waiting for Reagan to walk back through the door and turn the EC map red.

    You pine for past triumphs, especially when there’s a lot of shoe salesman in your present.
