Greensboro government and Greensboro Daily Lies (aka Fake News) fail citizens businesses and nation, Trump police officers blamed for liberal policies and rogue cops
“While Lester and other business owners fended for themselves, trying to protect their stores, he said the police were two blocks away, staying close to the protest, which Lester called a “peaceful protest.”
“Meanwhile, looters were down here looting, and no police would come down to help.””...Greensboro Business Owner Chris Lester
“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”…William Tecumseh Sherman
“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells
You noticed I did not blame police officers in the heading above. Most of them are decent hard working enforcers of the law.
And President Trump gets the blame from the very elements that are mostly responsible for the current ills and ongoing problems in this country. The left, aka liberals, aka Democrats.
The latest episode of mistreating blacks happened in the liberal bastion of Minnesota. Also home of Amy Klobucher, a former prosecutor and judge with a record of giving cops a free pass.
Although NC went for Trump in 2016 there are many liberal influences and that includes Greensboro, NC.
So it is no wonder that the reaction in Greensboro was liberal and incompetent (I know, redundant).
The Greensboro News Record is mostly irrelevant but it is very much to blame for spreading lies about Trump, conservatives and anything non modern day liberal.
From the Greensboro Lies, aka News Record, aka fake news June 3, 2020.
“Our Opinion: It’s all about Trump”
“Now here he was marching with a contingent of security and administration officials to St. John’s Episcopal Church at Lafayette Square, where, finally, he was ready for his close-up. Trump awkwardly stood for cameras and held a Bible.
When a nation needs leadership and unity, this is what we get: A poorly executed set piece in a reality show.
In a speech of more than 800 words Monday, Trump devoted 36 to Floyd. And none to a need for dialogue and reforms in policing.
To be sure, Trump was right to address the violence and looting that left ugly stains on many protests, including those in Greensboro. But he provided no broader look at what needs to happen going forward.
The president assured us that “we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob.”
And then he set loose cops on a crowd of peaceful protesters.
The woman who oversees St. John’s Episcopal Church was incensed.
“He used violent means to ask to be escorted across the park into the courtyard of the church,” Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington told NPR. “He held up his Bible after speaking (an) inflammatory militarized approach to the wounds of our nation.”
“He did not pray,” the bishop said. “He did not offer a word of balm or condolence to those who are grieving. He did not seek to unify the country, but rather he used our symbols and our sacred space as a way to reinforce a message that is antithetical to everything that the person of Jesus, whom we follow, and the gospel texts that we strive to emulate … represent.””
Read more if you can stomach it:
Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde apparently all knowing. She could see inside his soul to know if he prayed or not.
The Episcopal Church here has become more about “social justice” and illegal sanctuary sites than following the will of God.
From President Trump’s statement:
“THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. My fellow Americans: My first and highest duty as President is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do.
All Americans were rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that, for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their President, I will fight to keep them safe. I will fight to protect you. I am your President of law and order, and an ally of all peaceful protesters.
But in recent days, our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others. A number of state and local governments have failed to take necessary action to safeguard their residents. Innocent people have been savagely beaten, like the young man in Dallas, Texas, who was left dying on the street, or the woman in Upstate New York viciously attacked by dangerous thugs.
Small-business owners have seen their dreams utterly destroyed. New York’s Finest have been hit in the face with bricks. Brave nurses, who have battled the virus, are afraid to leave their homes. A police precinct station has been overrun. Here in the nation’s capital, the Lincoln Memorial and the World War Two Memorial have been vandalized. One of our most historic churches was set ablaze. A federal officer in California, an African American enforcement hero, was shot and killed.”
President Trump is right.
The lying disgusting Fake News Greensboro News Record is wrong!
Someone in Greensboro government apparently issued the equivalent of a stand down order over the week end which gave the criminal element carte blanche to loot and damage stores downtown.
They also closed a section(s) of I40 Saturday night.
In Greensboro, NC, the Police Dept. is governed by the City Manager’s office with the probable influence of Mayor Vaughan. Ms Vaughan usually kowtows to the wishes of the arts and gay communities.
From the Winston-Salem Journal.
“Surveillance video of Sunday night looting. Greensboro businesses clean up again after Sunday’s unrest.”
“For the second day in a row, downtown business owners were out early Monday morning, assessing the damage caused by looters during Sunday night’s protest in Greensboro.
Natty Greene’s was among a handful of businesses targeted by looters.
Owner Chris Lester was outside his restaurant Monday morning as employees helped to clean up shattered glass, prepping for a crew coming to board of the windows.
Lester said he received an alarm notice around 11:15 p.m. He and his manager rushed to the restaurant to find three broken front windows, damage to the front door and several bottles of liquor stolen off the shelves.
Lester called 911 immediately but said no officers responded.
“We stayed here from 11:15 p.m. to 2:15 a.m. and not one police officer came to help us. I called five times.”
He said he didn’t have an officer stop by until 8:15 a.m. Monday.
“I was really disappointed in our police,” Lester said, adding that he even searched and found an officer outside who told him, “I can’t help you.””
“Mayor Nancy Vaughan, who was out surveying the damage on Monday morning, said police presence was thinner Sunday night because officers were deployed to other areas.
“Things were pretty widespread last night and beyond just downtown Greensboro,” Vaughan said.
While Lester and other business owners fended for themselves, trying to protect their stores, he said the police were two blocks away, staying close to the protest, which Lester called a “peaceful protest.”
“Meanwhile, looters were down here looting, and no police would come down to help.””
