California uses ‘Racism’ To Justify Prostitution-Friendly Bill

Prostitution

Liberal California is at it again, blaming “racism” as a means to justify a terrible law. The new law is aimed at decriminalizing loitering with the intent to work as a prostitute. Bill supporters say the new law is necessary because the current law targets minorities.

Biz Pac Review reports “proponents say that minorities and transgender people are disproportionately targeted for enforcement of current loitering laws because of how they are dressed.”

Those who oppose the new law worry that it drastically hinders the ability for law enforcement to intervene and help sex trafficking victims. The bill eventually passed the California Assembly after a fierce debate with a 41-26 win, with moderate Democrats siding with Republicans against the bill.

The bill also allows convictions to be overturned for those who have a prior conviction for loitering with intent to work as a prostitute, and their records for the case sealed. Democrat Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan supports the bill because the current law was allegedly “criminalizing the victims and leaving them with criminal records that create further barriers to seeking employment, housing and relief.”

A spokeswoman for the bill’s author, State Senator Scott Wiener, told the Sacramento Bee:

“Holding the bill at the Senate desk is simply a temporary delay. It provides the senator and our coalition more time to make the case about why this civil rights bill is good policy that should be signed into law and why this discriminatory loitering crime goes against California values and needs to be repealed.”

“[arresting people who] look like sex workers is discriminatory and wrong, and it endangers sex workers and trans people of color. Anti-LGTBQ and racist loitering laws need to go. Sex workers, LGBTQ people, and people of color deserve to be safe on our streets.”

 “For me, when the unintended consequence is making it more difficult to protect victims of child trafficking, even if it’s just a possibility, that’s not something I can support,” said Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris, a Democrat who does not support the bill.

The bill now awaits the California Senate, before being sent to the governor’s office in January. Depending on who wins the election attempting to recall current Governor Gavin Newsom, could determine the ultimate success or failure of the bill.

    That’s why I fled California in 2008, as soon as I could get out.
    Soon nothing but super poor and super rich. That’s what they want.

BLM Leader Vows to ‘Abolish’ NYC Mayor De Blasio’s Vax Passports

Says ‘Free Pass to Racism’,  ‘Modern-Day Freedom Papers’

Chivona Newsome

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandates and consequential vaccine passports necessary to enter most bars and restaurants in the city are being dubbed racist by a Black Lives Matter leader.

Chivona Newsome co-founded the Greater New York Chapter of BLM and also ran as a congressional candidate in 2020 for New York’s 15th district sent a statement to Fox News explaining the claims of racism.

“Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises,” Newsome stated. “The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers. The vaccination passports are modern-day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people.”

De Blasio’s mandates went into effect September 13, ordering indoor establishments making patrons show proof of vaccination before entering. Businesses can face fines up to $5,000 for not complying. On September 20, the Mayor’s office announced it had already issued 3,200 warnings to businesses in the first week.

Newsome continued, “The vaccination mandates infringe upon the civil liberties of the Black community…It’s more than where we can dine or enjoy entertainment, it will result in loss of income. As of Monday, September 27, Black health care workers and educators will lose their jobs.”

Newsome’s concerns for minorities and repercussions such as losing jobs is the same reasoning hundreds of groups and unions across the country have stood up against Biden’s vaccine mandate. Postal workers, Police unions, Nurse Unions and Hospital administrators are all amongst those expressing outrage.

Newsome says De Blasio’s actions are a direct attack on black Americans, and he “chose to disenfranchise and force the very people who elected him into poverty and second-class citizenship.”

She explained that de Blasio is, “fully aware of the hesitancy and distrust people of African descent have about vaccination and their interactions with government and law enforcement.” Newsome concluded, “the vaccination passport will not be a free pass to racism. Our organization pledges to demonstrate until the vaccine mandate is abolished.”

Democrat Pushes Back On False Claim Border Patrol Agents Whipped Migrants

Henry Cuellar

During a CNN interview on Tuesday, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) pushed back on false claims by other Democrat lawmakers that U.S. Border Patrol agents riding horses were swinging whips at illegal immigrants trying to cross the southern border.

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell pushed the false information during, saying the Border Patrol agents were hitting migrants with what “appears to use what looks like a rope or a lasso” and then asking Cuellar for his reaction.

“Well, you know, certainly, we got to make sure we treat all the immigrants with respect and dignity,” Cuellar responded. “But I will say this, Border Patrol has had those horse brigades for a while, they’ve had them for a while, number one. Number two, they don’t carry whips. And they do not carry lassos. I think the picture you’re talking about, at least the one I’ve seen is the rein, the rein of the horses.”

“And should those be used? Should those be used should even if it is a rein?” Blackwell asked.

“Well, again, if there was a problem, it should be investigated,” Cuellar responded. “And I think that’s it, but we cannot paint the Border Patrol with that same type of paintbrush. Look, you know, what are they supposed to do? Just stand there and let everybody come in? You know, they’re supposed to be enforcing the law, but again, as to how you enforce the law, you got to make sure you treat people with dignity and respect.”

The CNN interview came after a video surfaced of illegal immigrants attempting to evade U.S. Border Patrol agents on horses and run into the country. In response, many Democrats falsely declared that the agents were using whips on the migrants – despite the fact that Border Patrol agents do not carry whips and there being zero evidence any of the agents struck any of the migrants.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), for example, tweeted, “The images of inhumane treatment of Haitian migrants by Border Patrol—including the use of whips—are unacceptable They are fleeing violence and natural disaster and seeking protection in our country The Administration must uphold our refugee laws and stop Title 42 deportations.”
