A black sports journalist was banned by Twitter after he criticized a Black Lives Matter co-founder’s recent purchase of a $1.4 million house.
The New York Post reports:
Jason Whitlock says Twitter blocked him over a tweet pointing out the demographics of Topanga Canyon, the Los Angeles enclave where Black Lives Matter leader Patrisse Cullors recently snapped up a $1.4 million home, according to reports.
Whitlock showed fellow journalist Ryan Glasspiegel the Friday email he received from Twitter about the offending post, which said Topanga Canyon “has a black population of 1.4%.”
“She’s with her people!” Whitlock wrote of Cullors, adding a link to a story about her real estate purchase on the celebrity blog Dirt.com.
Whitlock told the Daily Mail that Twitter went “too far” in blocking him and called BLM “one of Big Tech’s sacred cows.”
“’I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years,” said Whitlock. “I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me,” he continued.
Twitter told Whitlock his account was locked because he revealed personal information about someone.
“They said I needed to remove the tweet that linked the dirt.com story about Cullors buying a house in Topanga,” he said.
Ironically, Cullors is a self-proclaimed “Marxist” and has purchased a number of real estate properties in recent years, including two Los Angeles homes and a 3.2 acre property in Georgia.
Man Goes Off On CNN Reporter Covering Brooklyn Center Riots, Tells Them To Leave Minnesota
A man had some choice words for a CNN reporter as she was covering the riots in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota following the police-involved shooting of Daunte Wright Sunday.
Sara Sidner, a CNN correspondent, was reporting live when she was approached by the man who said “Now you can see — y’all be twistin’ up the story. That y’all doin’.”
Sidner then engaged with the man, who refused to give his name, and asked him what he thought about everything that was going on around them.
“What I think about this is, all the press and all the extra s— y’all do makes this worse!” the man exclaimed.
“You think so?” Sidner asked.
“Yeah,” the man said. “Y’all need to get up outta here with all that twistin’ up the media and s—, real s—.”
“You don’t know me, but we’re going to get to know each other,” Sidner responded in an effort to calm him down. “That’s what we’re going to do.”
“How are you gonna know me?” the man asked.
“You’re going to talk,” Sidner replied. “I’m going to share our number with you. Let’s do it.”
“No, let’s do it right here,” the man told her.
This was an incredible moment live on CNN, when a man in Minnesota walked up to Sara Sidner, and absolutely unloaded in an f-bomb-laden rant: “It’s all the press and all the extra shit ya’ll do makes this worse…Get away from here with all that media shit." pic.twitter.com/DFsszxHyeV

Affluent Chicagoans Fleeing Due to Leadership Inability to Calm BLM Violence
Many people, including President Trump himself, noted during their Republican National Convention speeches that Democratic-run cities are experiencing violence and looting, as the leaders whose policies are to blame are safely hidden in privileged areas. However, areas like Chicago have become so bad, affluent neighborhoods are no longer safe and citizens are getting out of dodge.
“Incidents of widespread looting and soaring homicide figures in Chicago have made national news during an already tumultuous year,” writes the Chicago Tribune. “As a result, some say residents in affluent neighborhoods downtown, and on the North Side, no longer feel safe in the city’s epicenter and are looking to move away.”
Liberal leadership has been unsuccessful at subduing violence from the Black Lives Matter’s highjacked movement. With no end of destruction in sight and spontaneous eruptions of violence, while residents say “they understand why protesters and rioters have poured onto the streets of downtown, and some acknowledge that crime is worse in other parts of Chicago” they still want out reports the Chicago Tribune.
Some people “agree with protesters that something systemic needs to be changed” but they “don’t want to wait it out here in the city, fearful of stepping outside at night and hoping for things to maybe get better.” A 30-year-old nurse who lives in the River North area said, “not to make it all about us; the whole world is suffering…but I do think that I’ve never had to think about my own safety in this way before.”
Hopefully, this will be a lesson to Chicagoans and similar cities, that they need to vote out their Democratic leadership who refuse to stand up to the violent protesters and also refuse to accept help and assistance offered directly from President Trump. 60-year-old Neil Spun has lived in Chicago for over half his life and is deeply conflicted about moving. A state worker, Spun said “there have been rights before, and looting. It just seems to me now that the city isn’t doing anything about it. I don’t see this getting any better, and so I’d like to leave.” Residents would be far better off voting in new leadership instead of succumbing to liberal policies that change their communities beyond recognition.
