Bill Maher: Bernie Supporters Unpatriotic.

Video clip of Bill Maher to Bernie Sanders tonight on his show tonight:

“You sir are a patriot sir unlike some of your supporters.”

Message to Bill Maher I am veteran and just because I support Jill Stein now after Bernie has dropped out doesn’t mean that I… And my fellow brothers and sisters who supported Bernie for president just because we don’t support a corporate/corrupt candidate who stole our votes and elections are not patriotic…In fact…We doing what anybody who believes in the Democratic system of “free and equal elections would do when their votes are stolen.

Steal our votes…Steal our Voices
Steal our Voices…STEAL OUR LIBERTY !

Bernie’s Legacy is for Liberty Not For Oligarchy: Our Stolen Votes Equal Our Stolen Liberty!

Stolen Votes/Rigged Elections=Our Stolen Liberty
“The Only Thing We have to fear is fear itself” nameless unreasoning fear itself…
In response to a friend who says changing our minds is not a bad thing when we sell out our liberty and our dignity to vote for queen Shillary $$$:
Changing your mind is not a bad thing except … When it is a “bad thing”
Our stolen vote equals our voice…
Our stolen voice equals our stolen Liberty
That liberty was stolen by Shillary $$$ and the corrupt leadership of the Democratic Party…
When the corrupt leadership of a supposedly Democratic Party stole our liberty as they did when they stole our votes and then cheated our candidate and ourselves out of a presidential nomination …
And to then accept that is not only a betrayal of our own personal liberty …
It is a betrayal of our own personal dignity.
So what you have said is that your voice does not count in the now “UN-Democratic party since your vote was stolen and you have accepted for all intents and purposes an oligarchic ruler who lies to you and says: “your vote counts”.
So, if you accept your vote not counting this time and saying you want your vote to count the next time …is destroying the very thing you are fighting against.
Sadly people who will accept the sacrifice of their liberty once are no different then the politician who says he or she will accept a bribe “only once”.
I believe Emiliano Zapata illustrated this well when he said it is “better to die on your feet then live on your knees.
And really, we are metaphorically making the same mistake that many made in 2003 when many believing out of fear the lies that led us to wrongfully invade Iraq. Yes … We were told that there was an evil and horrible bad man named Saddam Hussein and that he was going to use weapons of mass destruction on our country much the same way we are now told Trump is going to unilaterally going to use the presidency as a weapon of mass destruction which the majority of our fellow our fellow Americans will never allow him to do because of the fact that we will be more unified and fired up then like no other time in American history to oppose and stop him through mass civil disobedience and outright non violent revolt. But with Shillary $$$ … ? Not so … We have already seen in horror how many of our friends literally either worship the Clinton’s or fall into the line of the elite Democrat orthodoxy and will do … or accept anything they are told to do simply because it is the oligarchic Clinton’s. Shillary $$$ will then play the role (as her husband did) of the proverbial “Trojan Horse and then continue to double down for her “Goldman Sachs” buddies and puppet masters on Wall-street.
So … Yes changing your mind is not always a bad except… When it is a bad thing and that is the case when one decides in mid-stream to sell out their dignity by selling out their liberty (stolen vote) out of fear in order to get a little false security.
So yes, there is a decision to be made … Would one turn over their stolen vote, their liberty and therefore their dignity and their conscience to a liar and a cheat (SHILLARY $$$) out of logic erasing fear for the big mouthed blow hard Trump ? You may say yes for yourself but we would say “Give me liberty or give me death!” rather than cede our liberty to unreasoning blind and trampling fear. A real Democratic president of the once actual Democratic Party named Franklin Delano Roosevelt was right when he said that “we have nothing to fear but fear itself” for now his words ring true more then ever when we in a great panic sell out our liberty not really because of Trump but out of blind reasoning fear. We therefore should not take our liberty and put it in a temporary “detention camp” out of fear it will betray us to a Trump we should by all means do the opposite and free our liberty and free our conscience it is only then that we can ever truly defeat a trump, a George W.Bush, an L.B.J., Nixon or a Neo-Liberal, vote stealing, election rigging and cheating Clinton

Protest For Liberty Supporting Bernie Democrats Today In Phoenix 5:00PM-8:00PM! Corporate Dem Leaders Say Stay Home !


We can all just shut up and repeat the status quo of the tunnel visioned worshipping Clinton Democrats or…Now we can finally make a difference by showing our opposition with our feet over to the Green Party. The corrupt leadership of the Democratic party laugh at us and patronizingly pretend that they cannot hear us when we say that:




The corporate/corrupt elite Democratic leadership and their coronation of queen SHILLARY $$$ are the reason Trump will be elected. The scapegoating of our progressive Democratic brothers, sisters and Millennials is nothing but a lack of self accountability on the PRO TPP/PRO FRACKING Democratic party leadership.



In light of the fact that our votes have been stolen and the presidential primary has been rigged we will be holding a non violent JILL NOT SHILL $$$ demonstration outside of the Az. Democratic party hqtrs today in Phoenix from 5:00PM until 8:00 PM. Please come by if even just for a few minutes and bring a sign stating your sadness that our votes were stolen.

In solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Philadelphia.

Shining Blood

Shining Blood Mixed With My Shining Blood
I joined in with the angry mob and cast stones at the man…He was still standing there in the village square…Bloodied…And, it was horrifyingly amazing to see his shining, bright red blood pour out onto to the hard ground beneath and then realize at that moment…The man was being stoned to death for sins of the past that he had committed and not for the good deed he had just had the temerity to commit.
And then…At that moment I jumped into the circle of hate with that man…And, I yelled out to him: “I know you have sinned before as I have brother but I will not let you be stoned alone for doing a good and righteous thing” …It was at this time that the man’s shining blood had mixed with mine and some how atonement was in that moment and peace finally came.
Of course it was not a smart thing to do but…It was the right thing to do
It is painful to anger friends and even lose them when you follow your conscience but…It is ten times more painful when you give into friends and go against your conscience.
Brothers and sisters… Below is a letter from a dear friend whom I shall not name unless that person wants to be named.
This friend, just messaged me and had said that because I had supported a person that some revile and despise in our community that I now was being attacked for doing so.
Well…I am glad my friend wrote me to ask about this and the first part will be that person’s letter asking questions of me as to why I stood by that person temporarily for something I believe that they had done right. My friend’s letters will be labeled A.) and my responses will be labeled B.)
A.) Lennie – . “I am here because I am seeing you being named and criticized for supporting Jarrett Maupin. It pains me to see you criticized — would you like to speak to this ? I haven’t yet seen a post of comment of yours mentioning Jarrett. As always, hope you’re ok….”
B.) Hello. The nitty gritty is: That I supported Maupin on holding that march on July 8th, 2016. I do not support Maupin on anything else but… I have a tendency to stand up for a person when they (although doing bad in the past) do something good for a change. Then…When people continue to go into a savage and hateful mode even for a person like Maupin who has done bad in the past when now he has finally done good for a change…I will follow my conscience and stand up for what I believe is right. Also…I don’t think taking orders from the pro police good ol’ boy Phoenix police Joe Yahner who comes from the ranks of Phx PD. is a good thing for a civil rights protester to do.
I saw some other civil rights leaders saying Maupin was wrong for not listening to the police and then…I saw Maupin criticized for what rogues were doing and that I believe was and is just plain wrong. I believed Maupin did the right thing because in the moment of truth when the establishment had co-opted the other leaders he was not so … Despite all the criticism… I will follow my conscience and not judge a man by his past actions for a good action he does in the present.
A.) Len —“I wasn’t there Friday night – but isn’t that what Jarrett did – taking orders from , being buddy with – PPD? That’s what I heard he did — and gave names of protesters to cops too. I’ve heard that he wasn’t doing good Friday night — he deceived people who attended by not telling them he intended to go to the freeway…..and parents and children were surprised and running from tear gas. People see him as not having done a good thing Friday. Just saddens me when you are criticized — I appreciate you following your conscience—-
B.) Thank : 1.) The allegation that he was buddy, buddy with the police might have been true in the past but it was very public that he defied the mayor and the pro police phx police chief because they tried to pressure him and order him not to march.
2.) As far as people stating they were deceived you and I both know that when you go to a protest you make voluntarily decisions every step of the way…
a.) some people decide to play it safe and not walk at all in the street which is already breaking the law.
b.) Some people decide to either do a sit down in the street or don’t..It is voluntary.
c.) People did not have to go the freeway…In fact when we got close to it many people decided to leave but… a group of other people voluntarily decided to stay that was their choice…And my choice as well because I stayed. It was my choice every step of the way…
d.) And as far as people insinuating that our young Millenial brothers and sisters were like children and didn’t know what they were doing? Well, that is an insult to them for they are an extremely educated and conscientious generation and that this assumption is even made at is quite frankly that older people are nervous about young people making decisions for themselves. And, by “young” I mean all young people who have reached the age of 18 and older.
e.) So, when people put their feet on the street, the police may have insinuated they had permission by doing so but nothing could be further from the truth…When one steps voluntarily onto the street and brings their children with them to a protest while doing so they need to know they are putting their children at risk.
3.) I know Maupin has done these things that have angered me from the past and I have personally told him so but I also told him I wouldn’t fault him for doing the right thing in this case for the march he held on July 8th, 2016 and…Quite frankly…The bad things he has done in the past now have company with the bad thing some of the current leaders did by doing what the pro Phoenix police chief and Phx mayor ordered them to do and that was not to have the peaceful social justice march that night.
So, I stand by my conscience and revel in the fact that I am being attacked for it. Thanks again, for your questions. I assure you, that my public decision to stand by a man who is reviled by some others who are my friends and their subsequent torrent of anger unleashed on me is something I would be accepting now if I had done things the easy way and had joined in on the chorus of vitriol towards Maupin. But, sometimes even when we anger our friends that will abandon friendship with us because we follow our conscience it is better to stay friends with our conscience which is a tough friend indeed sometimes to keep.

In Phoenix The March For Social Justice Against Police Brutality/Murder Goes On ! Phx Civil Rights Leaders Put Your Differences Aside And Unify Temporarily With Maupin!


Unknown-5.jpegUnknown-6.jpegPhoenix Civil Rights Leaders: Please Sit Down With Reverend Maupin And Stop Being Divided…You Are Being Co-Opted By The Establishment As Long As This Division Continue: Thanks 🙂

Okay…Brothers and sisters…This is going to make a lot of people angry at what I am about to say below but…The media is not going to tell us, so I am going to give my non-politically correct view below. So please, if you disagree with me on this… Please let still respect our differences of opinion and continue to be friends. Thanks from Lennie 🙂

Brothers and sisters…This is only my analysis of what transpired on Friday night, July 8th, 2016 with our peaceful and non-violent march for justice against militarized police brutality and murder. Unfortunately…The establishment…A.K.A. the Phoenix politicians (Phoenix mayor Greg Stanton, Michael Nowakowski (a.k.a. Bull Connor Nowakowski), Gallego, Sal Diciccio et. al), the Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner, Arizona politicians and Homeland Security are doing a good job co-opting our non-violent movement here in Phoenix for justice against police brutality and unjustified police killings.


Why do I say that? Well because right now before our very eyes…We have civil rights  and progressive leaders…Who are not unified. The fact of the matter is (and I know this will infuriate those latter leaders I just mentioned) is that Jared Maupin (the man who kissed up to Arpaio) took the proverbial “bull by the horns” and organized and initiated a non-violent social march for justice in Phoenix, Arizona that was opposed by the political elites and Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner.


Reverend Maupin had just about everyone of the civil rights/religious leaders in Phoenix opposing him. I am not saying that the reverend is suddenly a saint but I truly admire the fact that he did not cave into the demands of the establishment and some co-opted leaders in the community to not have the march for justice. This situation reminds me of the one in which the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King was extolled, harangued and pressured to not come out against the Vietnam War but…As usual this great spirit did what was right and was not intimidated from doing the right thing. And so, again…Whether we like it or not…The reverend Maupin did the right thing and went ahead with the march. Despite the police chief harassing him and councilman Nowakowski pressuring him every step of the march for justice to stop. Imagine that…An angry police chief who thinks we are at war with our own people… In your face almost every step of that non violent march for justice trying to dissuade you from marching on… But the reverend Maupin…Thankfully did not listen. And…Despite my heavy disagreements with Reverend Maupin… I thank him very publicly for doing what was right and having the non violent march that night. And…Let me reassure you… I am still angry about his kissing up to Arpaio but my ego can for now put aside.


And, unfortunately…Many of our community leaders are still going before the press and essentially telling us: “I told you so” . Told us about what? That we had a successful non-violent march demanding justice for the victims of police brutality and murder? No…They are basically telling us that we were fools for doing the march (NOT!). And why are they saying this? Ego, Ego, Ego. So … I don’t know about you brothers and sisters… But I know in my heart, conscience and spirit that I and you all did the right thing that night by marching for justice non-violently. But….Still some of these leaders continue to look myopically at their anger towards reverend Maupin instead of the larger good that was done when we marched non violently last Friday night in Phoenix. So, No…We weren’t stupid for marching that night and… Please put aside your ego and anger for now we need to unify against injustice in the form of police brutality and police murder. Here is an interview at azcentral

Let this march and this particular leader (reverend Maupin) be a lesson to all of my fellow progressive activists and organizers… When we listen to the establishment such as the pro-police Phoenix politicians and fore go doing what is right…. WE BECOME CO-OPTED! The reverend Maupin although listening in the past to the political establishment and appeasing the monster Arpaio in this case: DID NOT LISTEN TO THE ESTABLISHMENT and did the right thing. Do I think that in the future that he will not do as he has done before? No… In all reality he might regress and continue to appease monsters like Arpaio but…When he does do something right and fills a void that was not being filled by our other leaders…. Then I will support him on those specifically needed efforts such as this non violent march that occurred on last Friday.

But, getting back to the lesson we should learn from what occurred on Friday, we must understand that the political establishment via its politicians are trying to co-opt us along every step of the way by getting us to accept political positions and appointments from them…They are hoping that since we have been given a perky position in government  that we will fill obligated to then shut up. I am not saying though that we should always turn down appointed positions as long as we refuse to become co-opted by  a system that wants to perpetuate social injustice i.e. police brutality and murder of our people.

I as many of you know here in the progressive scene in Arizona and Phoenix have made my very negative comments clear about how I strongly detested the fact that reverend Maupin had worked with the monster Arpaio. But….When I got to the march that night to observe…I saw the reverend, I saw my brothers and sisters and…I saw humanity. I could feel the righteous pressure of the people, my brothers and sisters there in Phoenix that night and there was something unseen but strongly felt…The spirit of justice and here undeniably she was calling out to all of us to: March, March, March! And ….Not continue to let the tyrannical old racist, bigoted and arrogant system to stop us anymore from obtaining justice from police brutality and police murder!

I therefore sat aside my ego….As I stood there watching the reverend Maupin rally the march. And…Most importantly, I watched my brothers and sisters as they and the reverend Maupin were being opposed in the beginning of the march by our illustrious Phoenix city leaders Nowakoski and the police chief Joe Yahner trying to intimidate and pressure them into not marching non violently for social justice against police brutality and murder.

And…As I watched the tired and old bigoted system now being employed against my non-violent brothers and sisters and the reverend Maupin, I came to a self realization and said to myself: “Wait a minute…What the fk is wrong with this picture?” And, as I asked that question of myself I wondered why the other civil rights/religious leaders were joining with the very establishment pro-police politicians because of their egos to prevent a non-violent march for justice just so they could back at Jared Maupin.  And further… By doing  so, I realized that these civil rights/religious leaders out of ego and perhaps now being in the establishment themselves were fulfilling the old and treasured tradition that stretches back to the time of Julis Ceaser: which is to “Divide and Conquer” people so that they can be subjugated.

Again…I still have great differences with the reverend Maupin on his past dealings with the monster Arpaio but…We waited for the other leaders and what did they give us? This co-opted establishment resonse of:  “We must postpone the march because our bosses, the Phoenix establishment pro-police and Homeland Security don’t want you to do it for safety reasons. Safety reasons? Really?

Incredibly as it may seem…Some of these same leaders that detest reverend Maupin so much (as I did) are now outright incorrectly insinuating that the reverend Maupin wanted violence which is b.s. Because I marched that night and there was no violence except for a few probable government provocateurs. And…I watched some of the reverend Maupin’s people tell those provocateurs at the very end (because they weren’t present throughout the march) to get away from us. At most there might have been two people causing all of this so called violence.

But…To listen to the critics of our non violent march for justice you would think there were cars being burned and windows being smashed… Nonsense!

If Dr. Martin Luther King, had listened to these co-opted community leaders advice back in the 1960s…  Civil Rights marchers would never have marched across the bridge at Selma and Ghandi and his fellow Indians would still continue to be under the tyrannical colonial domination of England today and Ceaser Chavez wouldn’t have conducted non violent acts of civil disobedience.

So…If the critics of our march and those who hate Maupin so much would have had their way… We would have all just listened and did what the establishment corporate sold out Democrats like Phoenix mayor Stanton, council person Gallego, Homophobic councilman Nowakowski (a.k.a. Phoenix’s “Bull Connor”) and their buddy right wing Trump supporting councilman Sal Diciccio wanted us to do…And that would have been: “Just stay home and it will all get better, the police brutality and murder will all just stop.”

Oh…But let’s all not forget how terrified the politicians are in Arizona of angering the largest police union here  known as the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (P.L.E.A.) with its powerful political action committees and politically active membership. In fact…This is the same union that was and probably still is defending one of its officers convicted of a serious felony for shooting a man in the back and other acts of brutality and unnecessary killing of our people, etc. . mayor of Phoenix, and the politically elected council people of Phoenix are just like all other politicians for the most part and want to keep getting re-elected over and over again and to do that…They believe they have to pander to this police union and declare themselves: “Pro-Police”.

And, as I have noted earlier in my previous writing the Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner during his  pro-establishment press conference speech alluded to only the recent police who were killed and gave condolences to them (which we all do) but… Never mentioned condolences to the families of the people who have been the victims of police brutally and even more recent murders at the hands of the police. No, this was a man in the frame of mind -as he stood scowling out at the audience during the mayor’s statement with a mindset of: We’re at  war… The Phoenix police chief then went on to brag about how he was working with “Homeland Security” (“Do you have your papers?”). Of course, this being code for ….”We are spying on you evil protesters and will use our militarized system designed for war to come after you, the people, who we all deem to be a threat to our security.” And, he’s not just bragging, the Federal government is now working closely with Phoenix (thanks to mayor  Stanton who is on the inside power curve with the current administration and its Homeland Security Department). In addition… I have observed and testified repeatedly against huge Homeland Security grants being doled out to Phoenix for to help acquire such things as Sting Ray spying devices and…Facial Recognition Systems.

So rest assured that just like the C.I.A. that was initially formed only to gather intelligence but then started doing counter-intelligence, i.e. overthrowing Democratic governments and planting agent provocateurs, we are now going through the same thing with Homeland Security….So, thank you so much for politicians who gave the constitution killing Patriot Act, NOT!   It really is becoming very apparent that the elite establishment politicians and police chief are now using the domestic version of the C.I.A.: Homeland Security to practice its very counter-intelligence tactics on us, the non violent marchers for social justice against police brutality and murder.

Ah…But you say “no way, would our local political leaders ever employ these types of tactics against us” much less use Homeland Security counter intelligence methods”…Well…Okay you have fun continuing to live under that rock you’ve come to enjoy so much and the rest of us will keep our eyes open and stop drinking the “Kool-Aid”.  So…Congratulations Phoenix politicians on the city council…You are now employing the worst tactics and resources of counter intelligence (Homeland Security) to keep the status quo of police brutality, murder and private prisons in place. And, I won’t even get started on the private version of an “all knowing private google system” being used by our politicians via Homeland Security which can look at anything on us at anytime.-source-the international journalist Glenn Greenwald

Further, you have many of our leaders now divided and… just today…You (Phoenix politicians and Homeland Security) used our state’s largest newspaper, The Arizona Republic to put out pro-police propaganda on its front page, i.e. detailing how the great benevolent Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner is “Feeling our pain” and is going to hold so called community hearings to placate all of us so that…We all “Just stay home…It will all get better and the police brutality and murder against people of color, poor people and all of us will just go away”.

This entrenched establishment elite (two party duopoly) will concede nothing and will only try to co-opt us at every step of the way by giving political and financial rewards to key opposition leaders who have the trust of their supporters.
It’s the “oldest trick in the book”
Thank GOD that the beautiful spirit Doctor Martin Luther King would not be co-opted. Of course… We know what they do to our leaders who refuse to be sold out don’t we? J.F.K., M.L.K., R.F.K

In conclusion…I would like to speak personally to you, my friends who are civil rights and progressive leaders: As much as I have differences with the reverend Maupin, I have put aside those differences for now because: The reverend, whether we like it or not…Did the right thing on Friday by holding a non-violent march for justice against police brutality and murder of our people.

Please, do not accept the invitations of the political establishment…i.e. the mayor of Phoenix Greg Stanton, Gallego, Michael Nowakowski, Sal Diciccio and Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner without first making amends and coming together in a public meeting with the reverend Maupin so that we can go forward with a unified non-violent movement for justice here in Phoenix and in Arizona against police brutality and murder of our people. I have already seen a proposed meeting of many of you (community leaders) being announce via social media but….I also notice that you have left out the reverend Maupin from being in attendance. This is not wise it is preventing our unified front and…You are playing right into the hands of the counter intelligence efforts of these pro-police forces : Homeland Security, mayor Stanton, Nowakowski, Gallego and Trump supporter Sal Diciccio. We are going to remain divided if we refuse to temporarily set aside our egos.

I propose to all of you and that includes myself: To please reach out to the reverend Maupin…We must make temporary amends and unify against this social injustice: Police brutality and police murder. I will attempt to directly tell the reverend Maupin that I do not agree with his working with Arpaio but…I will also tell him that I am prepared to set aside my ego for now to stand with him whenever he marches as he did non-violently for justice that night in Phoenix. Again…We should not continue to malign him in the media, this only strengthens the dark forces that are arrayed against us and are doing everything to defeat us so that we continue to live in a militarized police state.

As long as we continue to lash out at Maupin, the government controlled corporate media will give us a microphone to destroy our non-violent movement from within and therefore ourselves. Further… I will ask reverend Maupin to refrain from appeasing monsters like Arpaio. And yes…I know you are saying: “Lennie he is fooling you but…I assure you that if he turns on us by suddenly working with the establishment, that our movement will go on without him. Until then, I will forgive the reverend for his past transgressions and … I hope he will forgive me for my transgressions as well. We are only human and it will be love in the end which cures this sickness of police brutality and police murders of our people, black, red, brown, yellow and white.

I know most of you and you are beautiful fighters for justice but…We must come to together non violently to stop this sickness…This evil which continues to abuse and murder our beautiful people. And…Let me make this last point: This movement is about the people, Our beautiful brothers and sisters and justice……It is not about Maupin, it is not about me, it is not about any of our egos…It is about love, humanity and justice. “The People United Can Not Ever Be Divided”.

Mainstream Media Is Lying…I was there and there was no warning before Pepper Spray and Tear Gas were fired into the faces of peaceful protesters!

First here is my thought on the M.S.M lying to all of you and telling you and that we were warned before we were tear gassed last night and pepper sprayed in the faces last night… I was just standing on the sidewalk next to the police line and the illogical and idiotic spooking of my non violent brothers and sisters by the police and Phoenix political leadership (Phoenix city councilman Nowawkowski stood in the middle of the street multiple times taunting the crowd to run him over and trying to impede our march) caused them to panic and nearly stampede my self and others.
F.G. is right…. There were no warnings not from helicopters or police on the ground that pepper spray would be sprayed into my non violent brothers and sisters faces marching for justice in Phoenix last night. Now, after hearing all the talk about how the mainstream media lies…. I have seen for myself. P.S. I was right underneath those helicopters and all they did was try to spook us by erratically moving their powerful search light over us light like a strobe light to dis-orient us. Now… There’s a winning strategy… Dis-orient and spray pepper spray into peaceful and non-violent marchers faces who are marching for social justice… That’s great. P.S. M.S.M is lying to you. And we weren’t on the freeway.- Leonard Clark proud to have marched non-violently for social justice against police brutality and murder yesterday.
Below is my sister of peace F.G.’s thoughts on this lie being spread by sympathizers of the Phoenix mayor Stanton, Nowakowski, Diciccio and the callous Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner:  which by the way I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH 🙂

“I love how people keep telling me the people we’re warned before they pepper sprayed us. Question, where you there? Did you walk with us? If not, please have a seat on your opinion.

When you march and protest your doing just that. There was no cop speaking to any of us warning us to go any other way. No one on the mega phone or anything for any warnings. See, what you so think happens is from sitting on your couch watching from your TV. So when people are marching how are we supposed to know what’s being said or told when we are out there in the front lines marching?! No, what I seen was one man speaking to an officer, the officer moved his Sheild, and another officer started spraying people.
What’s crazy, is people really think, people marching and walking are supposed to turn on the tv when WE ARE MARCHING. Maybe one of my “friends” should’ve messaged me if you felt that way or cared to tell me valuable information.”

“They didn’t just spray protestors, they sprayed photographers, news reporters, camera men. All of us. Normal people standing by.”-F.G.

And this second statement that is from another eye witness: D.D. :

“No helicopters said anything! Of course the media will tell you something different!! I was there until the second round of pepper spray helping parents with kids get further away from the cloud and helping people who were hurt from getting hit by people running from the spray. NOBODY ANNOUNCED ANYTHING so if you don’t know, well now you know holmes. Easy to say stuff from the comfort of your couch” #fuckyourcomfortandyourfeelings#unitedminorities


So in conclusion… this false narrative is being spread by Phoenix mayor Stanton and Phoenix govt as propaganda…Wish I could say I was surprisedlet’s say this one more time: I was there with thousands of others and…THERE WAS NO WARNING FROM PHX POLICE BEFORE THEY FIRED TEAR GAS AND PEPPER SPRAY INTO PEACEFUL PROTESTERS FACES.

Phoenix City Councilman Nowakowski: “Bull Connor” of Phoenix

nowakowski stanton.jpeg
Another powerful politician who would love for me to have an unfortunate accident: City councilman Michael Nowakowski of Phoenix district#7:
Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski:
“Bull Connor” of Phoenix:
Really loved how councilman Nowakowski stood in the middle of the street to oppose my brother and sisters no violent march for justice this evening in Phoenix. Can someone tell me how this guy is a vice president of radio campesina because he is acting like a right wing fundamentalist Republican evangelical. Mark my words…..He is looking for a way to get elected as a Republican oh … But wait… He’s a Conservative Democrat and supporter of the Corporate Democratic party… So… Same difference.
He trying to play the role of “Bull Connor” except that in this case…He was trying to stop justice for police brutality and murder victims. Really saddened to see how he was kissing up to the police chief Yahner who made it plain yesterday in his comments at the press conference that he wasn’t going to express sympathy for victims of police brutality and murder…
And for the record…He despises me for outing him on his homophobic comments and has used the excuse that his bigoted beliefs against same sex bathrooms are part of his religion. So yes, I guess he is also Bull Connor of Alabama in the sense that he is for segregating our Trans Gender brothers and sisters from bathrooms… Oh …And forgot to mention that I have heard him personally during official city of Phoenix council meetings from his official microphone/podium decry the fact that: There is no more prayer in schools and that is why our students are just lousy.
But just when you thought councilman Nowakowski couldn’t be anymore of a corporate right wing fake Democrat… We only have to look back several years to see that he also worked with the monster Arpaio. Now… as in the case with Maupin who at least participated in a non violent march for justice against police brutality… We were able to put our egos aside and march for justice against police brutality and murder but what did Phoenix city councilman Nowakowski do? No… He didn’t march with us … He stood facing us  in the street opposed as it were to our route of  non violent march for justice against police brutality and murder…
So Yes… There are limits to setting aside differences as was with the case of Maupin yesterday but with Nowakowski… We couldn’t… Because he was literally standing in the street opposed to us trying to very openly curry favor with the very politically active Phoenix police union.
