Sunday Reads: Corn POP

Hello.

There was a pro-tRump, KKK, Neo-Nazi rally here in Dahlonega yesterday, it stinks because this is one of the reasons I moved out of Banjoville.

Dahlonega rally organizer on probation for 2016 assault in local bar

Chester Doles, the principal organizer of Saturday’s pro-Trump rally in Dahlonega, has repeatedly described his group as patriotic and peaceful, despite his history as a violent white supremacist.

Doles has two prior felony convictions, both of which earned him stints in federal prison. Now, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned that Doles was arrested on assault charges in a December 2016 melee in a Dahlonega bar that included, according to a witness report, Doles smashing a woman’s head into a wall while calling her a “stupid (expletive) white bitch.”

Doles is currently on supervised probation for that charge, conditions of which require him to “avoid persons or places of disreputable or harmful character.”

BTW, Doles is planning to run for the US Senate…as a challenge to David Purdue.

Hey, just a side comment:

Uh, that is the sheriff of Chattooga County…as posted by the Facebook page of the Georgia Alliance For Social Justice Discussion Group…That is disgusting. As you can see, the white power symbol being flashed…

#IndivisibleLumpkin had a little rally outside of Doug Collins office in Gainesville on Friday, in conjunction with others to  #DefundHate

It was exhilarating to get out there and yell towards the dipshit’s office…granted he wasn’t there and neither was his staff…but to be able to get the frustration out, that was marvelous.

 

A few tweets….

Poorly phrased?

I wonder if that whole shitfuck was planned, because:

Meanwhile…what is important about this fucking article…gets buried:

A few more tweets…for some harmless fun?

And now, a funny take on Biden, no not just this ridiculous record player crap from the debate.

We are talking about the legendary story of Corn Pop. To get the full jest of the matter, I have to share this extra long Twitter thread with y’all. Take the time to read it in full.

 

You can also read the entire thread here: Thread by @michaelharriot: “Thread: I’m always astounded by the imaginings of white people as it relates to race. Many of them have this fictionalized jigaboo version t […]”

 

In relation to the story of Corn Pop…

Joe Biden recalls lessons learned as the only white lifeguard at city pool in 1962 – The Washington Post

 

Early in the summer, a gang that called itself the Romans frequented the pool. One of the gang members, nicknamed Corn Pop, was bouncing relentlessly on the high diving board, which was expressly against the rules. Biden, wanting to show that he “wasn’t an easy mark” whistled at Corn Pop and yelled, “Esther Williams! Get off the board, man. You’re out of here.”

Williams was a 1950s swimmer and actress best known for aquatic set pieces, and the joke was likely meant to be somewhat emasculating.

 

Former Vice President Joe Biden had a public swimming in Wilmington, Del. named after him on June 26. (WDEL)
As you have learned from the twitter thread…Corn Pop was waiting for Biden in the parking lot…

Biden wanted to call the police, but Wright stopped him. If he did that, he’d never be allowed back in the community. So Biden did as his friend suggested and wrapped a six-foot length of metal chain around his arm, which he then wrapped in a towel.

Corn Pop indeed approached Biden, who said, “You might cut me, Corn Pop, but I’m going to wrap this chain around your head before you do.”

But he also said, loudly for all to hear, “I owe you an apology. I should never have called you Esther Williams. That was wrong. And in front of all your friends, I sincerely apologize. But if you bounce on the board like that again, I’m still going to throw you out.”

The two “put our weapons away, and we ended up being friends. Corn Pop and the Romans looked out for me the rest of the summer.”

This was all news to me. How could I have missed this story of Corn Pop and the gang?

I will end with this image. I think the look on Hillary’s face says it all:

 

This is an open thread.

      Where you can see that POC probably are not given fair justice…

      This does not surprise me at all. It’s encouraging there were a lot of counter-protesters. Unfortunately law-enforcement seems to attract the goons. I have very little respect for local law enforcement anymore.

      North Georgia is a haven for white-flight from ATL. Every white person who’s moved out of my neighborhood has moved up to the hills of N. GA. I bought my house from people fleeing incoming diversity – they moved to the Alabama border in a very rural white area.

      Don’t give up on Dahlonega – it’s a college town and probably more liberal than anywhere up there.

      Great post JJ and thanks for getting out there and resisting!!!

      Well, the DOJ should usually go take care of that but I doubt that will happen under the Barr gestapo.

    So Dump is going after Joy Reid now:

    Women seem to really get under his skin. He goes after Chrissy Tiegen instead of her husband – who is the one who did the TV show on incarceration. What a man!

    Jeeeebus, that Biden Corn Pop story is TMI!

    The superpower of politicians is being really good at knowing where their voters’ heads are at.

    So forget whether it has any truth or not. That story means Biden thinks it appeals to somebody.

    And that’s even grosser and more brain-bleachy than the story itself.

      He’s basically bragging that he made a black friend. And the fake jive talk he used to tell this ridiculous story is so embarrassing. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. He probably did embellish it though.

    And then there’s this from Kamala the Inimitable:

    I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.
