Temar Bishop #racist nypost.com

A black parolee arrested for raping and bashing a white woman on the roof of his Bronx apartment building allegedly told a witness that she “deserved” the brutal attack because of slavery, according to court papers.

“She was a white girl. She deserved it because us minorities have been through slavery,” Temar Bishop, 23, allegedly said to someone who witnessed the bloodied 20-year-old woman after the assaults, according to a criminal complaint.

“This is what they used to do to us. This is what they did to us during slavery. They used to beat us and whip us.”

Temar Bishop, 23, was arrested by authorities on Friday in Virginia on a slew of charges connected to the early morning June 1 assault, which officials have deemed a hate crime, according to authorities.

The 20-year-old met Bishop — who was on parole after serving just over a year behind bars for robbery — around 5 a.m. and joined him on the rooftop of the public housing building on Alexander Avenue near East 137th Street in Mott Haven, police said.

Bishop allegedly punched her repeatedly before raping her, then continued his assault — kicking and punching her in the head and body until she fell unconscious, cops said.

He then fled, but returned with the unnamed witness — who saw the woman “laying on the roof landing with blood covering her face” — and then allegedly made the remarks about slavery, court documents say.

The woman was treated at an area hospital for several injuries, including a broken nose and broken teeth. She was also “vomiting blood,” the complaint states.

Police sources previously told The Post a Special Victims Division investigator described the attack as “one of the worst he’s ever seen.”

Bishop was charged with two counts of predatory sexual assault, attempted murder, rape, two counts of assault, sexual abuse, assault and a hate crime.

He was arraigned in Bronx court on Saturday, where he was ordered held without bail, a spokeswoman for the Bronx District attorney’s office said.

David Allen Boileau #fundie nypost.com

A Florida man has been accused of terrorizing his Iraqi neighbors by breaking into their home before threatening that “Trump will handle it” if he couldn’t get them to leave the neighborhood, authorities said.

David Allen Boileau, 58, was arrested in Holiday on Tuesday following an incident the day before in which Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said he threw nails and screws into the family’s driveway on Pinehurst Drive in an attempt to flatten the tires of a relative’s car, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

“The US needs to rid the country of all of them,” Boileau said during the incident, according to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. “He also stated we’ll get rid of them one way or another.”

Boileau, who had just recently moved into the neighborhood, took his alleged dislike of Middle Easterners to new depths on Tuesday when a neighbor told deputies he saw him approach the family’s home and yell into the windows.

The neighbor then spotted Boileau walk out the family’s front door before the neighbor started recording video of the incident and called authorities.

Boileau later admitted to a responding deputy that he went into the family’s home via an unlocked door before walking out and rifling through their mailbox. The Iraqi family, which includes four young children, was not home at the time, but when the female homeowner returned she told deputies a wallet containing credit cards, gift cards and other valuables was stolen from the residence, according to the report.

Boileau denied taking anything from the family, who had lived at the address without incident for the last three years and didn’t have any prior interactions with Boileau, the report states.

“David uttered several statements of his dislike for people of Middle Eastern descent prior to being read his Miranda Warning and after being read his Miranda Warning as well,” according to the report. “The defendant made statements of the US needing to get rid of people with Middle Eastern descent and they don’t belong here. He also stated if he doesn’t get rid of them, Trump will handle it.”

Samantha Ray Mears #sexist nypost.com

A Montana woman broke into a man’s house with a machete, ordered him to take off his clothes and forced him to have sex with her, police said.

Samantha Ray Mears, 19, was charged Friday with two felonies — aggravated burglary and assault with a weapon — as well as several misdemeanors for the incident at her ex-boyfriend’s Great Falls home, according to the Great Falls Tribune.

Mears reportedly broke into her ex of seven years’ house Friday while he was away. When he returned, she confronted him with the large knife, demanded that he take off all his clothes and ordered him to lie on his bed.

Fearing bodily harm, the victim complied and she proceeded to remove her pants and climb on top of him.

Mears then began to engage him in sexual intercourse — all while still holding the machete.

When he tried to get her to stop, Mears refused and bit him on the arm, according to KFBB.

After she finished, she sat naked on the bed, brandishing the weapon. At that point, the victim was able to take several photos of her, which he turned over to the police as evidence.

When an argument ensued soon after, an enraged Mears ripped a piece of trim from the victim’s wall and deliberately urinated in his bed, according to KFBB.

The ex-boyfriend was able to alert the authorities after claiming he needed to call a friend, then escaping from the room to dial 911.

According to the Tribune, Mears was also arrested in April after a previous argument at the victim’s home where she grabbed his hair, hit him in the face and attempted to strangle him.

The state has also filed a restraining order against the defendant, according to KFBB.

Donald Trump #racist nypost.com

Trump told Shinzo Abe he’d ship 25 million Mexicans to Japan

President Donald Trump stunned his fellow world leaders at the G7 meeting when he said he would ship “25 million” Mexicans to Japan, which would result in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe losing his next election.

During the gathering in Quebec — which ended with Trump leaving early and refusing to sign the traditional joint communique — the president was talking about what he called Europe’s immigration problem when he turned his attention to the Japanese leader.

“Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon,” Trump said, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a senior EU official who was in the room.

The commander-in-chief also raised eyebrows when the subject turned to Iran and terrorism.

“You must know about this, Emmanuel, because all the terrorists are in Paris,” he told French President Emmanuel Macron.

“A sense of irritation with Mr. Trump could be felt, but everyone tried to be rational and calm,” the official told the paper.

Trump arrived late to the gathering, left early, and later attacked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as “weak” after Trudeau said Canada would retaliate for tariffs on imported steel and aluminum imposed by the US.

While the president has insulted America’s longest allies, he had nothing but praise for brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after their brief sitdown later in the week, calling him “a very smart guy” and “a great negotiator.”

Julie Gunlock #fundie nypost.com

As a mom of three young kids, I’m careful about what they’re exposed to on television, and I screen the shows they watch to confirm they reflect our family values of respect and courteousness. That’s why my kids are banned from watching the Disney Channel.

The Disney Channel and its spin-off, Disney XD, are no longer “safe spaces” for kids. The kid characters on Disney’s shows are often mouthy and disrespectful to parents and authority figures (who are usually scripted as muddle-headed and embarrassingly square). Even many of the strange animated characters make crass and nasty comments.

Shockingly, both my conservative and liberal parent friends tend to be angered by Disney’s programming. And in the Trump era, moms treasure these rare moments of bipartisan disgust.

Of course, some defend Disney, saying the company is only reflecting our culture and doing what all corporations do by responding to consumer demand. Yet maybe the company should reconsider caving in to the worst impulses of an immature demographic — Disney XD is designed for kids aged 6 to 14.

After all, Disney has another consumer to consider — the wearied parent battling modern culture to instill principles of kindness, politeness and respect of elders. This Sisyphean task is made more difficult when kids get a regular dose of vulgar speech, crude jokes and insolent behavior on a channel designed for kids.

If that isn’t enough, Disney has now decided to throw some sex and gender issues into the mix.

Small-screen shows like “Andi Mack” featured a tween character coming to terms with his own sexuality.

Disney is pushing boundaries even further by attempting to address the transgender issue.

On a recent episode of the Disney XD show “Star vs. the Forces of Evil,” a young boy dresses up as Princess Marco Turdina — get it? Turd-ina — in order to rescue a group of girls from the evil headmistress at St. Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses. Sounds tame, right? Boy rescues girls, how traditional.

But when the boy is revealed to be — gasp! — a boy by the headmistress who reveals he has chest hair under his princess costume, the young girls rally around him and launch into the sort of social-justice lecture one might see playing out on the University of California, Berkeley campus.

The scene begins with the headmistress shouting, “Turdina isn’t a princess. She’s a boy!” To which the girls, responding to such a disgusting display of gender bigotry, offer a chorus of defense for Turdina, shouting down the headmistress with comments like:

“Why does it matter if he’s a boy? Nothing he said was wrong!” “He can be a princess if he wants to!” “Turdina is a state of mind!”

No doubt, Disney writers understood this scene would make parents uncomfortable, but what they didn’t understand is the nature of the discomfort.
Sure, some will be unhappy with the transgender-embracing message, but most will be more concerned that kids are being told it’s OK to shout down an adult.

Is that how we want children acting — shouting down authority figures? Oh, wait, they’re already doing that. Again, just look at our college campuses.

We hear a lot from the left about how corporations have a duty to make the world a better place for all mankind.

In response to activist pressure, most corporations give lavishly to environmental causes. Corporations are told they must diversify their workforce. As such, most major corporations, both old and new, have initiated a variety of badly managed “Corporate Diversity Programs” that have done nothing more than increase tension in the workforce.

Corporations do these things because the public demands it — and to avoid lawsuits.

When it comes to how parents feel and how most parents want to raise kids, Disney seems to think it has zero responsibility.

That’s not going to change until parents start pushing back — or, you know, start pushing the television’s “off” button when Disney comes on.

Gunnery Sgt. Joseph Felix #fundie nypost.com

A former Marine Corps drill instructor was convicted by a military jury of physically abusing young recruits — focusing his fury on three Muslim-Americans whom he referred to as “terrorists.”

The eight-man jury at Camp Lejeune, NC, determined Thursday that Gunnery Sgt. Joseph Felix was guilty of hazing and maltreatment of recruits at the boot camp in Parris Island, SC.

[...]

Felix was accused of being a central figure in an abusive group of drill instructors that came to light after the March 2016 suicide of one of the three Muslim-American recruits he targeted.

[...]

He had pleaded not guilty and did not testify during his trial.

The lengthy list of charges against Felix included a series of disturbing acts against more than a dozen recruits. They included ordering recruits to choke each other, ordering them to drink chocolate milk and then training them until they vomited, assaulting recruits, and forcing Muslim recruits into a clothes dryer.

“He wasn’t making Marines. He was breaking Marines,” prosecutor Lt. Col. John Norman told the jury.

Felix was a “bully” who particularly “picked out three Muslim recruits for special abuse because of their Muslim faith,” he said.

In one case, Felix ordered former trainee Lance Cpl. Ameer Bourmeche into a commercial clothes dryer, which then was turned on as Felix ordered him to renounce his Islamic faith, prosecutors said.

Bourmeche testified that he twice affirmed his creed and twice Felix and another DI sent him for a scorching tumble inside the dryer. After a third spin, Bourmeche said, he feared for his life and renounced his faith. The DIs then let him out, he said.

Felix also maltreated Raheel Siddiqui, 20, a Pakistani-American. Siddiqui committed suicide in March 2016 after Felix barked at and slapped him, prosecutors said.

[...]

In 2015 and 2016, the DI derided Siddiqui and two other Muslims as “terrorists,” Norman said. Felix also ordered Bourmeche to simulate chopping off the head of a fellow Marine while reciting “God is great” in Arabic, Norman said.

Felix was permanently removed from his duties as a DI after the probe began, said Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Joshua Pena.

Congregation for the Light #fundie nypost.com

It’s a secret society that claims its followers descended from a “master Aryan race” on Atlantis and that ­humans once lived on the moon. Homosexuality is banned, corporal punishment encouraged and members atone for bad karma in past lives. Young women, denied higher education, are often married off to older men in the group, former members say.

Some male devotees have ­undergone weapons training to prepare for the end of the world, which is coming soon. But this doomsday cult isn’t hidden away in some rural ­bunker — it operates out of a brownstone in Murray Hill.

Every Thursday evening, dozens of congregants line up on East 35th Street for the group’s weekly meeting. Their leader of the flock, Tom Baer, 73, preaches from the center of the room, reading from pieces of paper. Members don’t have religious texts to follow along and aren’t allowed to take notes. In official documents, the tax-exempt church is called Congregation for the Light. To members, it’s just “the Light.”

The group has about 200 members in New York, and there are congregations in Washington, DC, and Atlanta, Baer and ex-followers say.

“It’s the cult next door to every New Yorker, and no one even knows that it’s there,” said an ­exiled member.

The former worshiper, a Manhattan woman who spoke on the condition of ­anonymity because she fears retribution, joined the group in 2003 while dating a man who was raised in it. “I totally wanted to know what was going on,” she said, adding that her boyfriend assured her it was “nothing creepy .?.?. just the basic tenets of all religions.”

The deeper she got, the more skeptical she became. Baer spoke to her of battling evil people in lucid dreams and how cancer and other illnesses were the result of karma, not health habits, genetics or environment. She noted Baer’s repeated, odd mispronunciation of “awry” as ­“ow-ree.”

The Light dates back to at least the 1960s and has met in Murray Hill since the ’70s, though members are taught that the church dates to the 19th century. Much of what the group believes is shrouded in secrecy, though former members say it has a lot to do with karma, reincarnation and the end of the human race.

The former worshiper was shocked that attendance at weekly meetings was mandatory; absences for vacation or higher education were not excused. When she asked a fellow member if her teenage daughter would ­attend Harvard or Yale, the woman responded: “What are you talking about? She’ll go to a local community college. She has to attend Thursday night meetings.”

She was warned not to share the Light with others, and she kept her membership secret from her closest friends.

“Everything is ambiguous,” she said. “And if you ask, you’re told, ‘You just don’t remember. You’ll remember when you’re supposed to .?.?. Try to control your dreams, and tonight you’ll remember a symbol.’?”

But she wouldn’t stop asking questions.

During a meeting at the end of the year, ­everyone was handed a white ­envelope — except for her. The next day, she joined her boyfriend, who had since become her fiancé, and his parents for dinner.

The food wasn’t even served before her ­fiancé’s mother stood at the table and announced: “If you think you’re marrying him, you’re nuts. I remember you from 10,000 years ago, and you tried to bring down the Light. “We are launching a spiritual intervention to save his soul,” the would-be mother-in-law said.

Shattered, the young woman was driven home and told never to speak to her fiancé again. Two months later, he was married off to a fellow Light member. The white envelopes had been invitations to a special meeting to sabotage her engagement to the man who brought her into the Light in the first place. “I felt like I was in a movie,” she recalled. “I didn’t realize the kind of power Tom [Baer] had. That the Light had.”

Paul Arthur Miller was 18 when he found himself among a dozen young men in a secluded nook of the Adirondack Mountains. He had received instructions on what to pack for the three-day trip reserved only for elite members of the “Light Patrol.” The troop was led by two ­believers, ex-Army paratroopers who taught the youngsters how to track footprints, the basics of camping and other survival skills.

He didn’t realize the training would include firing M14 automatic rifles into an abandoned junk heap or training in hand-to-hand combat in preparation for the apocalypse. “The belief is that Planet Earth will be ending soon and we would have to defend our people and safeguard our food and supplies,” recalled Miller, now a ­58-year-old West Village writer.

“They changed the doomsday date at least twice,” he said. “We were told it was imminent, weeks or months. People in the cult wouldn’t have dental work done because they thought, ‘Why bother?’?”

Miller was born into the group and worked 17 years for Baer’s furniture company in Harrison, Westchester County, which employed many Light members. “I felt like a prisoner,” Miller said. “I felt like an indentured slave.” He stayed through the tenures of two Light leaders across 30 years — each with his own agendas and “personal beliefs.”

Morris Kates, chairman during the 1960s and ’70s, taught Miller that once the world ended, people would be reincarnated on ­another planet called “Nay.” There, they would be one gender — and have no stomachs. Joseph Denton, Kates’ successor and a former Southern Baptist, tried banning the Internet and some TV.

Baer took the reins when Denton died in 2001. He had married into the Light in the 1960s after hitching a ride with a West­chester-bound follower and meeting his future wife.

Miller said the three leaders had one thing in common — they tried to erase his homosexuality, which they considered “a hangover from the Roman Empire.” He was ordered to date women in the Light. After one meeting, Kates cornered him and said, “Who is this guy who comes to stay with you on weekends? Is he a faggot?”

Miller was ordered to dump his boyfriend and to begin dating a woman in the Light. He saw her on and off for five years to keep up appearances Despite this, Miller said he was a favorite of Kates, who used to announce during weekly lectures, “Paul and I have been friends for thousands and thousands of lives.”

The meetings would begin in the brownstone’s ground-floor auditorium around 7?p.m., when Kates announced, “Greetings, friends.” The teachings are rooted in 19th-century England, ex-followers and Baer say, where a husband and wife — known only as “the Wyeths” — woke from the same dream and wrote down the karmic tenets and symbols they remembered.

“They don’t give you any sources. There’s no dogma you can reference. It’s just word of mouth,” an ex-member said. “You just believe what you’re told.” The Light chairman instructs followers to obsessively look for symbols in dreams and their everyday lives.

Ex-members told The Post they couldn’t even have artwork or bric-a-brac in their homes unless it contained one of the signs, which include an “owl,” or watcher protecting Light members, and a cross with an “X,” the group’s greeting sign.

“They’re brainwashed. They’re obsessed,” said Miller, who is writing a screenplay on his experience in the Light. Members aren’t allowed to associate with “know-nots,” the term for people who aren’t in the Light.

“You were always told if you leave the Light, you’re subjected to evil .?.?. because you don’t have protection,” Miller said.

Miller finally worked up the courage to leave the group in the 1990s. The last straw was a member spying on him as he dined with a male suitor. “How dare you be seen in a restaurant frequented by the Light with that blatant homosexual?” the member seethed.

Miller left a letter in Denton’s mailbox notifying him he was done. His parents left six months later. “My dad [later] apologized for getting us into this thing,” he said. He is estranged from his three sisters, who are still in the group. “I didn’t start living until I left the Light,” Miller said. “I want people to know it’s OK to leave, to reclaim their independence of thought and pursue their own life dreams.”

Another ex-follower, who requested anonymity, said he was booted from his home at age 15 because he questioned the teachings and refused to throw away his Black Sabbath records. “They believe in a master Aryan race .?.?. that lived on Atlantis,” he said, adding that black, red and yellow races existed, but a blue race was wiped out. “Once you get to a certain level, they start to tell you these things.

“They think they are otherworldly,” he added. “They carry themselves like they’re robotic .?.?. they’re not of this Earth, everything else is filth and [they] don’t want to associate.” He endured brutal beatings by his parents, who he believes were instructed by Kates. “I had this reputation of being a bad kid when I wasn’t,” said the ex-member. “I was an abused kid.”

His mother was told she was Kates’ daughter on Atlantis 10,000 years ago and believed she was a high priestess of the Light. “Everybody is brainwashed in this thing,” he said. “They’re conditioned to think and behave in a certain way, and it starts in childhood. Children are taught to fear.” The Light also teaches that children aren’t human until they reach the age of 13, he said.

The Light’s solution to his sister’s rebelliousness was to marry her off to a church bachelor in his 40s. “She was a gorgeous 19-year-old, and they married her off to this schlub,” the ex-member said. He said he struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder because of his upbringing in the group.

“If they want to clear their name of suspicion, they need to start answering questions,” he said. “They should maybe have a sign out in front of their building if they’re listed as a church.”

Another ex-member said he and his mother were forced to put money in a wooden box by the entrance before they jumped ship in the late ’70s. He remembers Kates announcing the group would incorporate as a church to get tax breaks. Shortly after, the member was kicked out for marrying a Catholic woman who refused to join the Light.

“There was always so much turmoil when someone chose a partner from the outside world,” he said, adding that parents often married their children off to other members in the group. “It was not uncommon for girls as young as 18 marrying .?.?. men who were quite a bit older,” he said.

The exiled follower said it took many years for him to get over the experience and that he has never shared more than superficial details with his adult children. “It still stands out as the worst time of my entire life,” he said. “But I was … fortunate enough to have people still in my life that loved me and helped me through it.”

Baer, a charming and sharply dressed man who uses a cane and believes he was an Apache in a past life, denies the group is a “cult.” “We’re not a religion. We’re what a church should be,” said the Ohio native. “The principles are to have a decent, sane and healthy life and to be responsible for our own actions.

We’re not a religion. We’re what a church should be. “You can’t do that in one life,” he added. “It’s impossible.”

Baer denied that the group supports corporal punishment, but said, “If I want to spank my kids, it’s no one else’s business .?.?. Even Jesus said, ‘Spare the rod and spoil the child.’ But it’s not what you do first.” The preacher said children aren’t indoctrinated until they are teens and that if a child dies before age 13, it’s because they committed suicide in a previous life.

Congregation for the Light runs a nonprofit named after Kates, who died in the late 1970s. The foundation’s address is at a Brooklyn auto shop. The group’s revenues were $116,860 in 2012 and $338,429 in 2011, tax forms show. The documents reveal a vague accounting of expenses, which include $84,000 for “totally physically and mentally disabled, total care, assistance for nurses’ aides.”

Baer, who lives on an upper floor of the Light’s brownstone, said the nonprofit gets 10 percent of its funds from donations and the rest from estates when members die. The group pays for members who are down on their luck and for their home care. “It’s not a cult. It’s not a scam,” Baer said. “You can come 3,000 times and you’re not going to have to pay a dime.”

Angela Jones #racist nypost.com

A black New Jersey woman who said she’s “sick of fancy white people,” and who allegedly attacked a man with a hammer and smashed his Porsche and boat at a Virginia gas station, was arrested Wednesday, according to authorities and reports.

Angela Jones, 26, of Newark is accused of beating the man from Massachusetts on Tuesday as he fueled up his car at an Exxon gas station on I-95, the Essex County (NJ) Sheriff’s Office said.

The victim, identified by WTVR.com only as Bob, had stopped at the station on his way home from Florida with his wife, Katherine, when he allegedly was approached by a screaming Jones.

“This lady was a couple pumps over and talking to me and yelling at somebody about having a message for her. I had no idea what she was talking about,” Bob told WTVR.com.

“I was coming around the side of the car and next thing I know, a car blocks me in. She comes out of her car, gets in my face and yelling at me about some sort of message I got for her,” he said.

The victim said Jones eventually threatened to put a hole in his “fancy boat.”

Jones then allegedly busted up the victim’s Porsche and his boat with the tool and spat in the face of the victim’s wife, according to Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura.

A sheriff from the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia told the news outlet, “She actually took a hammer and she hit his vehicle and the boat … She actually clawed him. He took her down to the ground to prevent her from doing any more damage.”

Jones reportedly said during the attack that she was “sick of fancy white people,” the couple told WVTR.com.

“I have no idea why she started going after us, but I guess she thought we were some rich people,” Bob said.

The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating whether the case is a hate crime, according to the news station.

Jones — who faces charges of felonious assault, assault and battery, and two counts of intentional damage to property — was picked up by sheriff’s detectives early Wednesday at her Fairmount Avenue home.

According to the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia, additional charges are pending against Jones.

She is being held at the Essex County Jail, where she awaits extradition to Virginia, authorities said.

Razi School #fundie nypost.com

An argument over Adam and Eve between a city-paid teacher and third-graders at a private Muslim school has landed the instructor in pedagogical purgatory, The Post has learned.

English teacher Nina Kossman committed the sin of “telling the truth,” she said of her expulsion from the Razi School in Woodside, Queens, which uses taxpayer-funded city Department of Education teachers in a federally-mandated program for poor kids.

Kossman infuriated parents by telling their children that Adam is “not real.” She noted that Judaism, Christianity and Islam share the myth, thinking it would “help build up tolerance” for other faiths. She also inadvertently showed kids a classical painting of the first couple as imagined in the Garden of Eden — nude.

A group of angry parents showed up at the school the next day to complain that she “discussed Jews with them and showed them pictures of naked people,” Kossman said Imani Al-Amin, an assistant to the principal, told her.

Kossman replied, “It’s just a story, a myth. It’s not real.”

The boy objected: “Adam is not a story! He is real!”

But Kossman persisted, “The story of Adam and Eve belongs to three religions — first Judaism, then Christianity, then Islam.”

When some kids said they didn’t believe it, Kossman opened her laptop and called up the Wikipedia page on Adam and Eve. Up popped the famous painting by 17th-Century artist Paul Rubens of nude Adam and Eve.

“Ooh! Naked people!” kids cried. “We’re not allowed to look at naked people!”

Anonymous Harasser #racist nypost.com

Disturbing video shows an interracial couple being harassed by a bigot who calls a Caucasian woman “the lowest rung of humanity.”

The video, posted to World Star Hip Hop on Monday, shows a black man and a white woman sharing a meal at an undisclosed restaurant when the man begins the racially motivated rant.

“Look at this f—–y in a black-owned restaurant,” the man filming says to himself. He then asks the pair if they are a couple.

After the diner says yes, his harasser continues: “You had to go to the lowest rung of humanity? … If they are even humans. Like are you that weak?”

“Just the fact that y’all have the audacity to sit in a black-owned restaurant, you know, I had to ask,” continues the unidentified bigot. “What’s wrong with you?”

“What was it that made you that weak — that you’d get on your knees and bow to this less of a female — that’s lesser than a black woman in every way,” he adds.

But the diner doesn’t lose his cool.

“Luckily for you, I am not getting offended,” the man responds.

Bank Street School for Children #fundie nypost.com

An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.

Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.

They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.

“Ever since Ferguson, the school has been increasing anti-white propaganda in its curriculum,” said a parent who requested anonymity because he has children currently enrolled in the school.

Bank Street has created a “dedicated space” in the school for “kids of color,” where they’re “embraced” by minority instructors and encouraged to “voice their feelings” and “share experiences about being a kid of color,” according to school presentation slides obtained by The Post.

Meanwhile, white kids are herded into separate classrooms and taught to raise their “awareness of the prevalence of Whiteness and privilege,” challenge “notions of colorblindness (and) assumptions of ‘normal,’ ‘good,’ and ‘American’” and “understand and own European ancestry and see the tie to privilege.”

The same slides point out that a number of leading private schools across the country also have segregated students by “race-based affinity groups.” It lists several in New York, including Riverdale Country School, Brooklyn Friends School, The Cathedral School, The Calhoun School, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, and Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School.

Under Bank Street’s “Racial Justice and Advocacy” curriculum, parents say, teachers push white kids to grapple with America’s history of racism. Then they indoctrinate them into thinking “systemic racism” still exists, and that they’re part of the problem and must hold themselves accountable even for acts of racism committed by others.

“One hundred percent of the curriculum is what whites have done to other races,” said another Bank Street parent. “They offer nothing that would balance the story.”

Added the parent, who also asked to go unnamed: “Any questions they can’t answer they rationalize under the pretense of ‘institutional racism,’ which is never really defined.”

The program, these parents say, deliberately instills in white children a strong sense of guilt about their race. Some kids come home in tears, saying, “I’m a bad person.”

They say white kids are being brainwashed into thinking any success they achieve is unearned. Indeed, a young white girl is seen confessing on a Bank Street video: “I feel guilty for having a privilege I don’t deserve.”

John Bolton #fundie nypost.com

Obama’s shameful apology tour lands in Hiroshima.

An American president’s highest moral, constitutional and political duty is protecting his fellow citizens from foreign threats. Presidents should adhere to our values and the Constitution, and not treat America’s enemies as morally equivalent to us.

If they do, they need not apologize to anyone.

The White House says that President Obama won’t apologize as he visits Hiroshima Friday. But who believes his press flacks?

His penchant for apologizing is central to his legacy. He may not often say “I apologize” explicitly, but his meaning is always clear, especially since he often bends his knee overseas, where he knows the foreign audiences will get his meaning. It is, in fact, Obama’s subtlety that makes his effort to reduce America’s influence in the world so dangerous.

He started in Cairo in 2009, referring to the “fear and anger” that the 9/11 attacks provoked in Americans, saying that, “in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our traditions and our ideals.” He later said, “Unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions . . . based on fear rather than foresight” — a characterization Americans overwhelmingly reject.

In Europe, saved three times by America in the last century, Obama apologized because “there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.” And in this hemisphere, Obama said, “We have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms,” culminating in his recent fawning visits with the Castros in Cuba.

The list goes on and on.

...

Obama’s apologies and gestures prove yet again, in his words, that he isn’t like those other presidents on our currency. And Friday, in Hiroshima, Obama may prove conclusively that, on national security, he’s no Franklin Roosevelt or Harry Truman.

Obama’s narcissism, his zeal for photo opportunities with him at the center, whether in Havana or Hiroshima, too often overcomes lesser concerns — like the best interests of the country. He puts his vanity before our nation’s pride.

Saudi Arabian religious police #fundie nypost.com

Religious police in Saudi Arabia detained a pastry shop’s cross-dressing mascot — for showing a little too much skin.

As part of a promotional campaign, a bakery in Riyadh had the man dress up in a costume depicting an unveiled Muppet-like woman in a blue gown.

He appeared in photographs posted on Twitter and Instagram as he greeted customers – but apparently offended Muslim sensibilities, since in Saudi Arabia, women are required to cover their hair and, in some parts of the country, their faces.

Authorities with the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice quickly reminded the mascot of religiously acceptable dress code, the Washington Post reported.

The man was seen in images sitting in a vehicle used by the religious police, who enforce the kingdom’s strict interpretation of Islam.

He “expressed regret” about the incident.

Many Saudis reacted to the half-baked crackdown with a mixture of embarrassment and amusement.

One Twitter uses jokingly referred to the poor sap as a female doll who should have been accompanied by a male guardian – as the kingdom requires for women.

“The doll is an irresponsible teenager,” he wrote.

Another man tweeted that the doll “had a lot of makeup on because it wanted to seduce people.”

And yet another man posted a photo of a Muppet-like man on the phone saying, “This is not my daughter and I don’t know her, officer.”

But not all locals found the gender-bending brouhaha to be funny.

A large number of the country’s 28 million people support the religious police, which until recently whacked transgressors with canes and even forced a group of women to go back into a blazing building because they were not covered enough.

Fifteen of those women perished in the fire.

One man tweeted that the offending mascot violated religious law simply by impersonating a female.

The police “are entitled to do this because the doll resembled” a woman, he wrote.

Vester Lee Flanagan II #racist nypost.com

ROANOKE, Va. — The words are a part of everyday conversation — “swinging” by an address and going out in the “field.”

But in the twisted mind of Virginia gunman Vester Lee Flanagan II, they were pure racism — and saying them became a death sentence for Alison Parker.

The 24-year-old white reporter, who was murdered on live TV along with her cameraman, used the phrases as an intern at ­WDBJ TV in Roanoke in 2012, according to an internal complaint filed by Flanagan, who was black.

“One was something about ‘swinging’ by some place; the other was out in the ‘field,’?” said the Jan. 21 report by assistant news director Greg Baldwin, which refers to Parker as Alison Bailey (her middle name).

Parker was never disciplined over the remarks, but Flanagan never forgot them.

...

Trevor Fair, a 33-year-old cameraman at WDBJ for six years, said that the words Parker used are commonplace but that they would routinely set Flanagan off.

“We would say stuff like, ‘The reporter’s out in the field.’ And he would look at us and say, ‘What are you saying, cotton fields? That’s racist,’?” Fair recounted.

“We’d be like, ‘What?’ We all know what that means, but he took it as cotton fields, and therefore we’re all racists.”

“This guy was a nightmare,” Fair said. “Management’s worst nightmare.”

Flanagan assumed everything was a jab at his race, even when a manager brought in watermelon for all employees.

“Of course, he thought that was racist. He was like, ‘You’re doing that because of me.’ No, the general manager brought in watermelon for the entire news team. He’s like, ‘Nope, this is out for me. You guys are calling me out because I’m black.’?”

Flanagan even declared that ­7-Eleven was racist because it sold watermelon-flavored Slurpees.

“It’s not a coincidence, they’re racist,” he allegedly told Fair.

Palaan Tewsmith #racist nypost.com

We have seen this same thing happen to us here in Vancouver. The lure of increased taxation, jobs, and ofcourse the always touted diversity mantra. Now our city is completely Chinese in all shape and form. They own everything, they only hire their own, they own all of the prime real estate and average Canadians are finding it very difficult to live in the Metro Vancouver area. The average house is 1.2 million, the average salary is 42,000 and everyone is speaking or supporting Chinese dominance. We have lost our country in many respects but it is sold as 'multiculturalism' and 'we are all immigrants'. If this project is approved in NYC you will attract very rude and aggressive uber wealthy Chinese that will take an imperialistic view towards the locals and this new base will serve as a beachhead for the Overseas Chinese to further expand their demographic and economic reach far into US territory. You will not be welcomed to visit this place - it will be an exclusive ethnic Han city. I am sure the Thompson, NY real estate agents, developers and immigration lawyers will be licking their lips at this prospect and will be sure to call anyone a bigot or racist that tries to thwart their effort to make a profit while selling the rest of you down the drain.

Shane Soares #fundie nypost.com

A Washington state woman will probably be more careful about whom she takes in as a roommate after her last one kidnapped her young sons because he believed the home was “infested with demons.”

Shane Soares allegedly grabbed the 3- and 4-year-old boys from their beds after midnight one day last week. When he was caught, he told Grant County sheriff’s deputies that “the Lord told him” to do it, police said.

[About the recent suicide of a Fannie Mae executive.]

He was getting ready to blow the whistle...so the Obama brownshirts killed him. This stinks to high heaven if you ask me, he only had the acting CFO job for 7 months! Of course the MSM will sweep this one under the rug too. Problem is that rug is running out of space real fast!
