College hires prof behind racist tweets

Sociology Professor Zandria Robinson has a new employer who doesn’t mind her “provocative” tweets.

A Memphis professor who left her job under a cloud after a series of racist tweets and Facebook posts has resurfaced at a school across town, where some of her new faculty peers are not happy to have her as a colleague.

Zandria Robinson, who taught sociology at University of Memphis until resigning on June 11, had previously posted on Facebook and Twitter that she did not want her daughter attending school with “snotty privileged whites,” apparently ramped up her social media rhetoric after leaving the job. In a series of tweets that began June 26, nine days after white racist Dylann Roof gunned down nine African Americans in a Charleston, S.C., church, Robinson wrote that “whiteness is most certainly and inevitably terror” and said she expected to see “thinkpieces about how more mental health services could prevent white people from acting how they are conditioned to act.”

Officials at Rhodes College announced Robinson’s hiring last week, and praised her for her “provocative” comments, some of which were first reported by the website SoCawlege.

“As a leading scholar and author in the areas of race, class, gender, culture, and the South, Dr. Zandria Robinson’s comments are sometimes provocative, controversial, and debatable,” the school said in a statement.

However, not all professors are in full support of the controversial hiring. Rhodes College Economics Professor John Murray told National Review that the school is trying to counter bad publicity from a year ago, when people posting from on or just off campus wrote racist comments on the anonymous social media app Yik Yak. But he said hiring someone who made racists statements from a different perspective made little sense.

“It does seem kind of crazy that we’re inviting a person to come teach on our faculty who seems to dislike a chunk of our students,” Murray said.

University of Memphis spokeswoman Gabrielle Maxey told FoxNews.com Robinson was not fired, despite earlier reports.

“She resigned on June 11,” Maxey said.

Robinson has a climactic history of racially-provocative posts on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

Robinson could not be reached for comment.

*(GENTLE GIANTS ON THE 4TH)* SHOCKING: 19 Year Olds Attackers Post Video On Facebook (VIDEO)

FOREST PARK, Ohio – Cheyanne Willis says she was beaten up, threatened and humiliated by her ex-boyfriend and several women while others took video on their cellphones and later posted it on Facebook.

The 19-year-old said her attackers slapped her, cut her hair, wrote “I got my — whooped” on her forehead in eyeliner and even signed their names.

The video is disturbing, pierced by Willis’ pleas and cries, muffled by others’ angry shouts.

Now Willis says she is in constant fear and she is frustrated because she filed a police report but her attackers are still out there bragging about it.

“I wanted to just die. I really wish they would have killed me. I don’t want to be here no more, honestly,” she told 9 On Your Side.

U.S. ANALYSTS ‘OVERWHELMED’ BY VOLUME OF ONLINE ISIS TERRORIST CHATTER

Capture

BY JOHN HAYWARD

Fox News reports exclusively obtaining a bulletin from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and National Counterterrorism Center warning of an extremely high volume of terrorist “chatter” on pro-ISIS social media. There is so much activity that our intelligence agencies are having a hard time keeping up with it all… and a great deal of the social media noise is coming from within our borders.

“The large number of social media postings by US-based ISIL supporters is challenging for investigators in differentiating those supporters focused only on promoting pro-ISIL rhetoric, which may be protected speech, [versus] detecting those prepared to engage in violence on the group’s behalf,” the bulletin advised according to Fox News.

The agencies also warned that ISIS was making very effective use of social media in its recruiting efforts, connecting with “hundreds, possibly thousands” of potential recruits and “lone wolf” jihadis within the United States.

ISIS is said to be using the Internet in “unprecedented ways” to call for attacks on American soil – a disturbing idea the Fox report does not detail any further, and unfortunately the network has only posted the first page of the bulletin. The same language was used by FBI Director James Comey in early May, after the Islamist attack in Garland, Texas; on that occasion, the “unprecedented” evil innovation he had in mind involved ISIS sending messages directly to the “smartphones of ‘disturbed people’ who could be pushed to launch assaults on the U.S.,” as USA Today reported.

It would appear that some portions of the bulletin Fox News obtained repeat statements made by intelligence and law enforcement agencies in the wake of the Garland attack, which appears to have been taken as a very serious wake-up call by the counter-terrorism community. The essential new content of this bulletin is the overwhelming volume of pro-ISIS online activity they are monitoring.

Perhaps some of the traffic is a smokescreen deliberately created by the terror state and its sympathizers, who have doubtless become well aware of law enforcement’s reliance on using social media to detect persons of interest – virtually every terror-bust story, from every part of the Western world, mentions that police were alerted to a dangerous individual by radical Facebook and Twitter postings, or discovered such activity while building a case against a suspect.

Fox News says the bulletin mentions no specific, “credible” threat… but emphasizes that the concept of “credible” threats has become “less and less relevant,” in the words of DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, because individual “lone wolf” jihadis have lately been acting with very little advance warning.

At any rate, the FBI, DHS, and National Counterterrorism Center say they are “aware of recent information suggesting U.S. military bases, locations, and events could be targeted in the near-term.”

Finnish politician suggests sterilizing African immigrants ‘to avoid total collapse’ in Helsinki *(ABOUT TIME SOMEBODY SAID SOMETHING)*

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 5.46.04 PM

A City of Helsinki deputy councilor has come under fire after he publicly stated in a Facebook post that African men who come to Finland as refugees should not be allowed to have more than three children, and should be sterilized instead.

According to Olli Sademies, 67, the problem with African immigrants is that they have too many children. So forced sterilization is the way to tackle it, he suggested.

“Migrants put to the test our social security,” Sademies wrote. “Africa’s social security is based on a large number of children, which enables some children to live longer and take care of their parents.”

In order “to avoid total collapse” of a similar system in Finland, African refugees should be restricted, Sademies said. “Three children maximum. It would require the forced sterilization of African men, which will effectively discourage them from trundling into our country,” he wrapped up.

The Finns Party that Sademies is a member of has rushed to distance itself from the controversial statement.

Party Secretary Riikka Sjunga-Poutsalo said on Twitter that Sademies’s comments are only his own views, not those of the party.

Seppo Kanerva, who leads the group of Finns Party councilors on the Helsinki council, slammed Sademies’ remarks.

“What he’s written is completely mad,” Kanerva told Yle’s Swedish language news service, according to Yle in English. “It’s fascism. Hitler thought in the same way. I don’t understand why he wrote that.”

The politician told Helsingin Sanomat daily he stands behind his words.

“This is a way to tackle the problem, and I wait for better suggestions. Tell us what would be better!” he told the HS.

In 2012, a Finns Party parliamentary assistant Helena Eronen raised eyebrows when she suggested on her blog on the Uusi Suomi website to make it compulsory for immigrants to wear armbands.

“If every foreigner was obliged to wear a mark on their sleeve stating their country of origin, then the police could see at a glance that ‘aha, there’s a Muslim from Somalia’, or ‘aha, that’s a beggar from Romania,'” Eronen wrote, as cited by the Helsinki Times.

Phew – what a racist! Media watchdog slammed after exonerating Katie Hopkins’ migrant slurs

Earlier this month, over 300,000 people signed an online petition calling for the Sun to sack columnist Katie Hopkins, who described African migrants as “cockroaches.” The article, published just five days after 400 people died when a migrant boat capsized in the Mediterranean Sea last month, provoked public outrage.

“NO, I don’t care. Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad,” she wrote. “Make no mistake, these migrants are like cockroaches. They might look a bit ‘Bob Geldof’s Ethiopia circa 1984,’ but they are built to survive a nuclear bomb. They are survivors.”

The UN’s human rights chief, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, commented that UK tabloids like the Murdoch-owned Sun that published Hopkins’ comments, bring back the dark days of the Nazi media.

“The Nazi media described people their masters wanted to eliminate as rats and cockroaches,” the UN high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in April.

*(GENTLE GIANT FOR TODAY)* IOWA MAN ARRESTED FOR FACEBOOK POSTS CALLING FOR MURDER OF WHITE COPS

Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 6.00.34 PM

Said he would kill police officers until killed by them

On Tuesday Michael Leshawn McCullum was arrested for advocating on Facebook the shooting of “every white cop in the nation.”

The Iowa man is being held on a $100,000 bail on an aggravated misdemeanor count.

“I’ve thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them,” McCullum wrote.

“Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least fifteen tomorrow. I’m plotting now,” he wrote later.

The arrest of McCullum follows the earlier arrest of a Georgia woman, Ebony Dickens. The mother from East Point, a suburb of Atlanta, wrote: “All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW… Death to all white cops nationwide,” according to police.

She said her remarks are protected under the First Amendment. “They reading this shit too right now. Freedom of speech tho… you can absolutely show me in the 1st amendment where it explicitly says you can’t say ‘kill all cops’…Other than that… NOPE!”

Dickens was charged with making terroristic threats.

FBI DIRECTOR: ‘MAYBE THOUSANDS’ RECRUITED BY ISIS IN US

“The haystack is the entire country. We are looking for the needles, but increasingly the needles are unavailable to us.”

by TRUTH REVOLT | BRADFORD THOMAS | MAY 9, 2015

FBI Director James Comey provided a troubling assessment Thursday of the agency’s efforts to combat the domestic threat posed by potential ISIS operatives. Saying there are “hundreds, maybe thousands” of people in the U.S. being actively recruited by ISIS, Comey painted a grim picture of the government’s “needle in a haystack” search for potential threats.

“The haystack is the entire country,” Comey said Thursday. “We are looking for the needles, but increasingly the needles are unavailable to us.”

Officials say ISIS’ recruitment efforts involve an unprecedented level of sophistication in its social media outreach. Using Twitter and Facebook and other social media platforms, the Syria-based terrorist group is effectively targeting what Comey described as “disturbed” people particularly vulnerable to their overtures. The terrorist group then directs them to encrypted venues where Comey said their communications become “lost to us.”

“This is the ‘going dark’ problem in living color,” said Comey. “There are Elton Simpsons out there that I have not found and I cannot see.”

The group’s method of mobilizing operatives like Simpson and Nadir Soofi makes attacks particularly difficult to anticipate.  Unlike Al Quaeda, ISIS does not necessarily impose direct orders or vet attack plans, frustrating the officials’ attempts to prevent attacks. The FBI was only able to notify Texas authorities of a potential threat of actions by Simpson three hoursbefore the “draw Muhammad” attack Sunday.

Comey said that hundreds of investigations are currently being conducted all over the country, with all 56 of the agency’s field divisions involved
