Daniella Levine Cava & Black Lives Matter (2020 Miami-Dade Mayoral Candidate)

Posted by FactReal on October 31, 2020

DANIELLA LEVINE CAVA AGREES WITH BLACK LIVES MATTER (BLM) & THEIR DESTRUCTIVE AGENDA?

Daniella Levine Cava holding a “Black Lives Matter” sign during protest on May 30, 2020 in Miami, Florida.
Notice Levine Cava was NOT wearing her mask — it was May 2020 — the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
We understand — it’s tough to talk while wearing a mask in 90 degree weather!

Daniella Levine Cava, candidate for Miami-Dade mayor, at Black Lives Matter protest riotDaniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade mayoral candidateDaniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade mayor candidate. Black Lives Matters. BLMDaniella Levine Cava at Black Lives Matter protest
During the BLM protest, Levine Cava seemed to suggest that police officers don’t care about black people and are actually killing them for no reason. She said: “We know that our police have training, but still, these things happen…No more killing of black people…Black lives matter!”

Daniella Levine Cava failed to mention that in most of the cases we are seeing, people refuse to follow police orders, resist arrests, and/or attack the cops. Many have criminal record. That is why it is important to wait for the justice system to handle the case and wait for the evidence. She should understand that — isn’t she a lawyer? Even in the George Floyd case which made many Americans cry, there are new revelations that the knee-on-the-neck is part of police training manual. [more on that later]

Video:

LEVINE CAVA: “I’m here at Friendship Circle, there are hundreds of people here. They are angry, they are frustrated. Enough is enough.

It happened in Minneapolis, it happened in Atlanta, it happened in Louisville. It happened everywhere. It could happen here. And you know what? This is too much, too much.

Everybody here is standing in solidarity, with the Floyd family. Everybody here is saying, we can’t be quiet. We know that our police have training, but still, these things happen. We know we can do better. We have to build trust, we have to have conversation, we have to acknowledge the pain, the pain of so many people.

We are all today here because we cannot stand this anymore. No more. No more killing of black people. Not on my watch, not on your watch, not in Miami, not in Minneapolis, not in Atlanta, not in Louisville. No where! That’s it.

Black lives matter! What more do we have to do to make the people have the respect and dignity. 2020 and we’re going backwards! Backwards, not forwards. Enough is enough!”

MAN: “That’s our future mayor!”

IS DANIELLA LEVINE CAVA ANTI-POLICE?
Daniella Levine Cava tweeted an image with the anti-police acronym “ACAB” [All Cops Are Bastards] on a protest sign.

A Miami Herald reporter kept copy of her tweet and the letter of the police union telling her that by tweeting the ACAB image she was denigrating the law enforcement community and fanning the flames of division.(Archive) Afterwards, Levine Cava posted a tweet blaming her staff and claiming that the ACAB image “would never had been posted had I known what was communicated in those abbreviations.” All she had to do is “google” the acronym before posting anything online.

DanielleLevineCavaAntiPoliceTweet

SHE WANTS A PANEL WITH SUBPOENA POWER TO INVESTIGATE…THE POLICE…NOT THE CRIMINALS
With her ACAB tweet, Levine Cava not only offended police officers, but also used the opportunity to push her anti-police agenda, “We must fully fund and strengthen the County’s Independent Review Panel.” She wants a panel of citizens [BLM or Antifa?] to investigate and review the behavior of police officers. Will they review the behavior of citizens who disobey police orders, resist arrest, attack or mouth off an officer as well?
Levine Cava: “We are going to tamp down activities… that allow rogue officers to persecute our people:
Video: “We are going to end knock-less warrants, to tamp down on foot-chasing, and various other activities that escalate violence and allow rogue officers to persecute our people. And so, all of these things together are part of my police reform program.”

Commissioner Levine Cava’s statement on ‘Independent Civilian Panel for Police Oversight’ that will have subpoena and investigative powers: (Archive)

Summary:
– “As part of her continued efforts to address police accountability and systemic racism, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava joined her colleague…today in approving a plan to create an Independent Civilian Panel (ICP) that will be empowered to investigate allegations of misconduct involving Miami-Dade County Police Department officers. “
– The ICP will be permanent in the charter if approved by voters…
– “Since the death of George Floyd, people across the country and around the world are decrying the deaths of Black people at the hands of police officers and are demanding justice.”
– The ICP will be “made up of civilians to help investigate allegations of police misconduct.”
[Civilians like Antifa or Black Lives Matter members?]
– The legislation will ensure that “those who deliberately neglect protocols and target residents with abuse of force will be held accountable by the very residents they are sworn to protect.”
BLM, anti-police, police abuse, antifa, miami,

DOES LEVINE CAVA KNOW BLACK LIVES MATTER IS A MARXIST ORGANIZATION determined to destroy American society?
Will Levine Cava now claim she didn’t know?

“Black lives matter” is not just a catchy slogan. It is actually the innocuous-sounding name of a radical, Marxist organization, which along with the fascists (so-called ANTIFA) are currently terrorizing American cities.[Yes, Fascism belongs to the Left.]

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors: “We are trained Marxists”

CULLORS: “The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said. “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.”

BLM TERRORISM:
In case Levine Cava doesn’t know how the Black Lives Matter organization has been terrorizing citizens and destroying our cities, here is a summary video. Just because one is angry or yells “Black Lives Matter,” doesn’t give one license to terrorize others or destroy property.

We need a mayor who will keep us safe and wait for the evidence before passing judgment. We need a mayor who will not fall for catchy slogans!

LIST: Trump Disavowing White Supremacy…through the Years (Videos, Transcripts)

Posted by FactReal on October 23, 2020

Below is a chronological list (with videos & transcripts) of Donald Trump disavowing white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the KKK, David Duke, hate groups, etc.

Liberals and Democrats want Americans to reject Trump. The leftist media continue to pepper Trump with accusations disguised as questions to:
1. Falsely suggest that Trump has never condemned white supremacists before.
2. Smear Trump as a racist.

Below is proof leftists are lying to us.

Caveat: We don’t know anything about the Proud Boys!
TIP: HOW TO HANDLE ACCUSATORY QUESTIONS ABOUT RACE
Every time a conservative or Republican is called a racist or asked questions implying you are a racist, respond by citing quick facts about the Democrats’ racism. Leftists don’t like to be confronted with their misdeeds. They also don’t want others to know that the Democrat Party is the party of slavery/KKK/segregation, etc.

TRUMP: But I have rejected. How many times do I have to reject.I reject David Duke, rejected David Duke. I have rejected the KKK, the Ku Klux Klan. From the time I’m 5 years old, I rejected them. I put it on Twitter last week. How many times? You know, it’s an amazing thing with Twitter. I have 6 million, more than 6 million. And I have another 6 million with Facebook. I have like 13 or almost 14 million with Instagram. When I put out a minor message, everybody picks it up. Donald Trump just tweeted something very unimportant. Let me just explain. When I put out that I reject the KKK and David Duke, nobody picks it up. You know why they don’t? Because they don’t want to pick it up. They pick it up. You pick it up. Everyone else picks it up — you saw — simultaneously, practically at the same time. They don’t want to pick it up. Now, I have been asked this question so many times. I have rejected it so many times. […] So, I said it myself. How many times do I have to reject or disavow?

Q: Let me ask you this question. What about the — David Duke is saying to his supporters and followers, vote for Donald Trump. White supremacist are saying, vote — do you want those votes?

TRUMP: No, I don’t want them. And I don’t want him to say it. I can’t help if he says it, if he says it. But I don’t want it and I don’t — if he says it — John, if he says it, he says it, OK? Do I want it? No.

TRUMP: No, I don’t want anything. But how many times…

Q: What do you think of white supremacists, by the way?

TRUMP: I don’t like any group of hate. Hate groups are not for me. But I have said this before. The press hates me to say it. They just don’t want to pick it up.

8/14/2017:

TRUMP: “As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. It has no place in America. And as I have said many times before: No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America. Two days ago, a young American woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed. Her death fills us with grief, and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love.”

8/15/2017 [TOPIC: Charlottesville violence] No, Trump didn’t call neo-Nazis “fine people.”

Video and transcript prove Trump was talking about pro- and anti-statue protestors, not neo-Nazis vs. Antifa thugs when he said there “were fine people on both sides.” Trump also said, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally.”

Q: Do you think that what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?

TRUMP: Those people — all of those people –excuse me, I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue of Robert E. Lee.
[…]

Q: The neo-Nazis started this. They showed up in Charlottesville to protest —

TRUMP: Excuse me, excuse me. They didn’t put themselves — and you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures as you did. — You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

Q: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same.

TRUMP: George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — Excuse me, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?

Q I do love Thomas Jefferson.

TRUMP: Okay, good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people. But you also had troublemakers, and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets, and with the baseball bats. You had a lot of bad people in the other group.

9/29/2020 [TOPIC: “Stand down/stand by, Proud Boys” controversy]:

1) The word “stand” was brought up first by the debate moderator (not Trump) when he prompted Trump to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and “to say that they need to stand down.” Transcript and video show Trump answering “sure” even though the moderator (Fox News’ Chris Wallace) hadn’t finished the question. Then Trump said, “Sure, I’m willing to do that.” [But the leftwing media continue to report that Trump failed to condemn the supremacists and that he gave an order to the Proud Boys to “stand by & ready”.]

2) Joe Biden was the first to mention the “Proud Boys.”
Transcript and video show Trump complying with Biden’s and Wallace’s request by responding, “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.” [Next day Trump explained that “stand down/back/by” meant to get out of the way – to let law enforcement handle the Antifa rioters.]

Video | Transcript (emphasis added):

WALLACE: “Are you willing, tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups —

TRUMP: Sure.

WALLACE: — and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha, and as we’ve seen in Portland.

TRUMP: Sure, I’m willing to do that.

WALLACE: Are you prepared specifically to do it.
[…]
WALLACE: So what are you — what are you saying?

TRUMP: I’m willing to do anything. I want to see peace.

WALLACE: Well, then, do it, sir.

TRUMP: I am —

BIDEN: Say it. Do it. Say it.

TRUMP: Do you call them — What do you want to call them? Give me a name. Give me a name.

WALLACE: White supremacist — and right-wing militia.

TRUMP: Go ahead. Who would you like me to condemn?

BIDEN: White supremacists. The Proud Boys.

TRUMP: Who.

WALLACE: White supremacists and right-wing militia.

TRUMP: Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I’ll tell you what, I’ll tell you what. Somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left. Because this is not a right-wing problem —

BIDEN: His own — his own FBI director said —

TRUMP: –this is a left-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem.

BIDEN: — the threat comes from white supremacists. Antifa is an idea, not an organization.

9/30/2020: Trump explains the ‘stand down’ remark means ‘let law enforcement handle the rioters’:

As we explained above (day 9/29/2020), the word “stand” was brought up first by the debate moderator (not Trump).

From The White House:

9/30/2020:

Q: “Do you denounce white supremacists?”

TRUMP: “I’ve always denounced any form — any form, any form of any of that, you have to denounce”.


ABC’s Kyra Phillips tweeted: “Just now: ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ tells me he DENOUNCES white supremacists”

10/1/2020:

Exchange between Trump’s Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany & Fox News reporter John Roberts:
Video | Transcript:

ROBERTS: Kayleigh, if I could start off, I’d like to ask you for a definitive and declarative statement, without ambiguity or deflection: As the person who speaks for the President, does the President denounce white supremacism and groups that espouse it in all their forms?

MCENANY: This has been answered, yesterday by the President himself, the day before by the President himself on the debate stage. The President was asked this; he said “sure” three times. Yesterday, he was point-blank asked, “Do you denounce white supremacy?” And he said, “I’ve always denounced any form of that.”

I can go back and read for you — in August 2019, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy.” In August of 2017, “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups.” I have an entire list of these quotes that I can go through with you.

He has condemned white supremacy more than any President in modern history.

McEnany later tweeted that Robert’s reporter-wife had tweeted 21 hours before that Trump had denounced white supremacists:

10/1/2020:

TRUMP: “Let me be clear, I condemn the KKK, white supremacists and the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that. But he [Joe Biden] should condemn, also, Antifa. Antifa is a horrible group of people. They kill people. They — what they do to people — and they’re causing insurrection. They’re causing riots. He doesn’t want to do that, but the press doesn’t go after him. And that’s a really bad group of people. But I condemn them.”

11/18/2016: ‘Hamilton’ Cast Treated Mike Pence as a Racist Dictator…while they wanted ‘Non-White’ Actors

Posted by FactReal on October 30, 2018

LIBERAL INCIVILITY & MORE
LECTURED BY THE PEOPLE WHO WANTED ‘NON-WHITE’ ACTORS

Days after the 2016 election, VP-elect Mike Pence was treated as a racist dictator by the cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton.”
(It’s obvious the cast seems to ignore the Democrats’ Racist Past)

The cast bullied Pence on the false premise that the Trump administration would be racist:[1]

The cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” a show about the duel between Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, felt it appropriate to bully and lecture Mr. Pence at the end of the show, which he attended.

Actor Brandon Victor Dixon, speaking on behalf of the cast (all of whom, ironically, found a safe space holding hands as though they were the ones about to be bullied) ambushed Mr. Pence with a condescending lecture premised on the expectation that the new administration would be racist and unfair.

The audience, which booed Mr. Pence and his family as they entered the theater, and then booed them again during certain points in the musical, applauded the rebuke.

WAS THE CAST PROJECTING?
Actor’s Racist & Sexist Tweets:

The left always goes too far, and the “Hamilton” stunt was exactly one of those times. They intended to embarrass Mr. Pence, but they embarrassed only themselves. After the ambush, President-elect Donald Trump and many others (including this columnist) called for the “Hamilton” cast to apologize. Mr. Dixon said there was no need as it was a “conversation.” That’s like claiming a bully sucker-punching someone is the equivalent of having a chat.

Not so surprising, this same actor who dares to lecture Mr. Pence on fairness and diversity is a hypocrite and is now under fire for what some consider racist and sexist tweets. Mr. Dixon refers in one tweet to women as “hos” (the slang for whores) and in one case tweeted, “St. Patty’s day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys.”

In July 2013 he also tweeted, “4 every racist comment I get about Trayvon Im going 2 turn 1 white married suburban housewife & mother n2 a jump off. The. Best.” Jump off apparently referring to a casual sexual encounter.

‘Hamilton’ ad seeking ‘non-white’ actors:[5]

The musical was at the center of another controversy in March after posting a casting notice seeking “non-white” performers.

The notice for an open casting call in New York advertised open auditions for singers “who rap,” adding, “Seeking NON-WHITE men and women, ages 20s to 30s, for Broadway and upcoming Tours!” […]

“What if they put an ad out that said, ‘Whites only need apply?’” […]

The law states that it is an unlawful “for an employer… because of the actual written or perceived… race of any person, to discriminate.”

MICROAGGRESSIONS BY THE LEFT
Summary of the night:[2]

Vice-President-elect Mike Pence took the opportunity of being in New York City…to attend the Broadway hit musical “Hamilton”. Ruining what might have been an enjoyable night out at the theater, the show cast lectured and harassed Mr. Pence, criticizing his new administration barely a week after he and Donald Trump were elected. So much for the theater being a safe space, free from microaggressions.

Actor’s main remarks:[3]

Brandon Victor Dixon’s remarks Friday night … yet again revealed the peculiar failure of liberal America to practice the empathy it preaches.

The actor who plays Aaron Burr in “Hamilton” thanked Vice President-elect Mike Pence for coming to the show, then spoke up for “the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us . . . or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”

The words were perfectly respectful — but the implication was downright rude.

And blindly condescending. All the marches and media hysteria have made it quite plain how much alarm many feel over Donald Trump’s victory.

LIBERALS HATE THE CARICATURE OF TRUMP & HIS SUPPORTERS…
…Caricatures created by the Democrat Party and the national liberal media

Michael Goodwin in his column, “Dear liberals: Start practicing the empathy you preach,” points what liberals hate “is the caricature of them the Democratic Party and the national liberal media created, and that you swallowed.”[4]

You don’t just reject Trump, you also hold contempt for his supporters. You belittle their concerns and demonize their resistance to your power. Among yourselves, you ask, how can they be so stupid to elect such a stupid man?

[T]hat contempt for certain less fortunate Americans is real. Such hate is anathema to the classical meaning of liberalism, and is often directed at an unknown adversary. So it is here, because most of you don’t actually know Trump supporters. […]

Actually, you don’t really hate them, either. What you hate is the caricature of them the Democratic Party and the national liberal media created, and that you swallowed, hook, line and sinker.

You fell for the oldest trick in the propaganda playbook. Obama, Clinton, Hollywood and their media handmaidens “otherized” tens of millions of hardworking, God-fearing Americans, and you said amen.

These hucksters turned anecdotes into universal truths. They found a racist or heard an anti-Muslim comment at a Trump rally and bingo, declared an entire movement bitter clingers, deplorables and irredeemables.

You accepted the caricature because it fit the stereotypes reinforced in your closed circle. It has ever been thus for the smart set.

MORE IRONIES WITH THE HAMILTON PRODUCTION
Diverse actors representing white males:[2]

“Hamilton” does indeed have a diverse cast with Black, biracial and Asian cast members representing our White male founding fathers…Until they stepped over the line. At a casting call earlier this year, they called for “non-white” actors, contradicting the inclusiveness the play supposedly represents.

No diversity at liberal media boards: [2]

Perhaps it is worth looking at these institutions to see how diverse and inclusive they are. Or are they living in glass houses casting stones?

The US Census Bureau breaks down the US population as 62 percent White, 18 percent Hispanic, 13 percent Black, and 6 percent Asian. And of course, a 50-50 distribution of males and females.

The executive editor of the Huffington Post tweeted a now famous photo of an editors’ meeting

All women, no Blacks. Hardly the bastion of diversity that they are already criticizing Trump over.

CNN has a digital leadership team of six. Four men, two women, all White.

The Washington Post has eight editorial board members. Six White men, one White woman, one Black man.

The New York Times editorial board fares a bit better in the diversity department. Of 16 board members, only nine White men, two Black men, and seven women, six of whom are White. Not so much for their executive team of thirteen members. Nine are White guys, one Black guy, and three White women.

Not only news organizations, but sports teams too. The NFL has a commitment to diversity. Yet NFL players are 68 percent Black, 28 percent White, and only 1 percent Hispanic. Hardly the diversity seen in the American population.

The NBA is also committed to diversity and inclusion. Much like the NFL, the NBA racial complexion is far different than that of America. Players are 69 percent Black, 22 percent White, and 4 percent Hispanic.

The point is that these organizations, extolling the virtues of diversity and inclusiveness, aren’t practicing what they preach. Hypocrisy? Yes.

Alexander Hamilton favored the electoral college, which liberal hate…because they lost the 2016 election:[2]

An ironic aside lost on the cast members lecturing and audience booing Mr. Pence is that Alexander Hamilton, namesake of the Broadway play, probable author of Federalist Paper 68, argued in favor of the electoral college for choosing the president. Yes, the same electoral college that modern-day liberals want to abolish since it didn’t deliver their desired election outcome.
