In the wake of rampant allegations of voter fraud in the Paterson City Council race, the New Jersey Attorney General filed voting fraud charges Thursday against a city councilman and a council-elect.

Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced voting fraud charges against 1st Ward Councilman Michael Jackson, 3rd Ward Council-Elect Alex Mendez and two other men, weeks after the May 12 local election in which the Passaic County Board of Elections decided not to count 800 city ballots found scattered across different municipalities.

Both Jackson, 48, and Mendez, 45, were charged with fraud in casting mail-in votes, unauthorized possession of ballots, tampering with public records and falsifying or tampering with records, according to the statement. Mendez was additionally charged with election fraud and false registration or transfer.

Along with Jackson and Mendez, two Passaic County men, Shelim Khalique, 51, of Wayne, and Abu Razyen, 21, of Prospect Park, were also charged.

The investigation was sparked by reports that hundreds of mail-in ballots were found in a mailbox in Paterson and in a mailbox in Haledon. The coronavirus pandemic has forced voters to mail in their ballots, as voting sites are no longer open.

“Today’s charges send a clear message: if you try to tamper with an election in New Jersey, we will find you and we will hold you accountable,” Grewal said in a statement. “We will not allow a small number of criminals to undermine the public’s confidence in our democratic process.”

Calls to Jackson’s office in City Hall were not immediately returned.

Much of the allegations stem from voters’ ability to designate a “bearer” of their ballot, who would presumably deliver the ballot for them. The bearer is legally required to sign the ballot before submitting it. According to the charges, all four men either approached and delivered vote-by-mail ballots from other people or possessed the ballots, even though their names were not listed as the bearers.

According to the charges, Jackson allegedly approached at least one voter in the district where he was running and took their mail-in-ballots for delivery to the county board of elections. The ballots were then taken to the board of elections without anything identifying the bearer, according to the statement. Jackson allegedly had more than three official mail-in-ballots that were not his own or had him listed as an authorized bearer, the statement said.

The councilman also allegedly received one voter’s mail-in ballot unsealed, without any vote, the statement said. That ballot was also delivered to the board of elections, in a sealed envelope and without any listed bearer.

Like Jackson, Mendez also stands accused of approaching at least one voter in his district and collecting their ballots, also to be delivered to the board of elections without a bearer listed, the statement said. But Mendez also allegedly acquired and submitted at least one voter registration application for someone he knew was not eligible to vote in the district listed on the application, the statement said.

The councilman and council-elect were aided by the two Passaic County men, who approached a house to collect ballots and had several mail-in-ballots in their possession, according to the charges.

Khalique allegedly went to at least one home in the city’s 2nd Ward and collected mail-in ballots from at least one voter, which were then delivered to the board of elections, again without a bearer listed. Rayzen allegedly had more than three mail-in ballots that weren’t his and did also not have a bearer listed, according to the statement.

Authorities also found a USB drive with a video saved of Rayzen “holding and flipping through a stack” of more than three mail-in ballot outer envelopes that also did not have the bearer filled out, according to the statement. The video allegedly confirms that Rayzen collected the ballots.

“While it’s gravely disappointing to see another episode of potential corruption in Paterson, I remain hopeful that this is the final chapter in what unfortunately has plagued our city for generations,” Mayor Andre Sayegh said in a statement.

In addition, Khalique and the bus company he owns, A-1 Elegant Tours, Inc. were charged Thursday with contract fraud and other crimes in a separate investigation, officials announced.

The charges come after an election fraught with irregularities, including the reported incident where 400 Paterson ballots were found in Haledon, 300 were found in South Paterson and another 100 were found elsewhere.

“U.S. Postal authorities informed the Passaic County Board of Elections about bundled vote-by-mail ballots within their possession,” Passaic County spokesman Keith Furlong said at the time. “These ballots have been delivered to the county and set aside. Board of Elections Commissioners decided not to count 800-plus of these ballots yesterday.”

Three North Carolina cops fired after racist talk of killing Black residents

A man raises his fist in the Black Power salute as workers behind him disassemble the remains of a large Confederate memorial on the grounds of the Old Capitol in Raleigh, N.C., on Sunday, June 21, 2020. —AP Photo/Allen G. Breed

Sitting in his patrol car in Wilmington, N.C., earlier this month, Officer Michael “Kevin” Piner predicted that Black Lives Matter protests would soon lead to civil war. “I’m ready,” Piner told another officer, adding that he planned to buy assault rifles.

“We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them f—— n——,” he said.

The shocking threat came amid extended, openly racist conversations between Piner, 44, and two other police officers, 50-year-old Corporal Jesse Moore, II, and 48-year-old Officer James “Brian” Gilmore. In the discussions, taped by accident on a patrol car camera and released by the department on Wednesday, the men freely drop racial slurs, suggest killing Black residents and deride protesters.

“Wipe ’em off the f—— map,” Piner said of African Americans. “That’ll put ’em back about four or five generations.”

All three officers were fired Wednesday, with new Wilmington Police Chief Donny Williams, who is Black, calling the conversations “brutally offensive.”

“This is the most exceptional and difficult case I have encountered in my career,” said Williams, who was just hired as chief on Tuesday. “We must establish new reforms for policing here at home and throughout this country.”

The officers’ vile discussions came to light purely by chance. On June 4, a sergeant was conducting routine video reviews when she found a nearly two-hour long clip from Piner’s cruiser created by an “accidental activation,” according to a department report. After listening to the racist discussion, she alerted a superior who started an internal investigation.

Piner, a Wilmington cop since 1998, began the recording by expressing his fury about the ongoing protests against police brutality and racial injustice in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Speaking to Gilmore, who had apparently pulled his cruiser up alongside Piner’s car, he complained that local police only cared about “kneeling down with the Black folks.”

Gilmore, hired by the department in 1997, said that whites were now “worshiping Blacks,” adding that he’d seen a video of a “fine looking white girl and this little punk pretty boy bowing down and kissing their toes.”

The two then complained about Black officers on the force, calling one a “piece of s—” and complaining that another was “sitting on his a–” during the protests. “Let’s see how his boys take care of him when s— gets rough, see if they don’t put a bullet in his head,” Piner said.

Piner soon left to check out an alarm, investigators found. About an hour later, Moore, who also was hired in 1997, called him to describe a recent arrest of a Black woman, repeatedly calling her a racial slur.

“She needed a bullet in the head right then and move on,” Moore said of the woman. “Let’s move the body out of the way and keep going.”

Later, while complaining about a Black magistrate judge whom Moore called a “f—— negro judge,” Moore added, “It’s bad man because not all Black people are like that.”

“Most of ’em,” Piner responded.

“90 percent of ’em, Kevin, 90 f—— percent of ’em,” Moore said.

Soon, Piner turned the conversation to his belief that a civil war was imminent and his intention to buy high-powered weaponry. After saying he was ready to “slaughter” Black people, he added, “God I can’t wait.”

“You’re crazy,” Moore responded, before the recording shut off.

On June 9, Internal Affairs investigators confronted the men with the recording. They admitted to having the conversations, but the officers each characterized it as “venting” and blamed the “stress of today’s climate in law enforcement,” investigators wrote.

Moore and Gilmore both argued that they were “not racist,” with Moore adding that he “doesn’t normally speak like that but was feeding off of Officer Piner,” according to the investigators. Piner, meanwhile, said he was “embarrassed” by the tape and suggested that concerns for his family’s safety had led him to a “breaking point.”

Williams, the chief, said he would ensure none of the men could be rehired by the city and would ask state officials to review their law enforcement certifications. He said he would consult with prosecutors about potential criminal charges against the three men, and would ask them to review whether any of the former officers had shown bias toward criminal defendants in the past.

“There are certain behaviors that one must have in order to be a police officer and these three officers have demonstrated that they do not possess it,” Williams said. “When I first learned of these conversations, I was shocked, saddened and disgusted. There is no place for this behavior in our agency or our city and it will not be tolerated.”

Massive spider found clinging to Texas home: ‘I was terrified!’

However, her biggest concern was her 12-week-old puppy.

“We could see him trying to sniff at it several times as it moved up the door, “she said.

GUESTS WATCH IN HORROR AS MASSIVE HUNTSMAN SPIDER EATS A POSSUM IN THEIR SKI LODGE

As soon as spidey reached the top of the door, Thomas said her husband, Ken, ran outside to try and capture it.

She was tasked with finding something big enough to put it inside.

“I’ve never been so nervous looking for a for Tupperware,” Thomas said, adding that her husband was the “real hero.”

“He now says he knew he had to catch it or else I would have made us move again,” she added.

After it was safely captured, the couple called the leasing office to report the spider and request pest control.

The woman from the leasing office gladly took the critter off their hands and later informed them that the spider had been released back into the wild.

Her only wish: “I pray not near our apartment complex!”

BEWARE: FACE MASKS ARE NOT PPE, AND WILL MAKE YOU SICK!!

If you are wondering about mask-

From a lady with 27 OSHA Certifications.
Long but very interesting –

So Masks?
I am OSHA 10 & 30 certified. I know some of you are too. I don’t really know WHY OSHA hasn’t come forward and stopped the nonsense BUT I wanna cover 3 things:

• N95 masks and P95 masks with exhale ports
• surgical masks
• filter or cloth masks

  • Note that cloth face coverings are not considered PPE.

Okay so upon further inspection OSHA says some masks are okay and not okay in certain situations.
If you’re working with fumes and aerosol chemicals and you give your employees the wrong masks and they get sick you can be sued.

• N95 masks and ported P95: are designed for CONTAMINATED environments. That means when you exhale through N95 the design is that you are exhaling into contamination. The exhale from P95 (ported) masks are vented to breathe straight out without filtration. They don’t filter the air on the way out. They don’t need to.
Conclusion: if you’re shopping and the guy with Covid has P95 mask his covid breath is unfiltered being exhaled into the store (because it was designed for already contaminated environments, it’s not filtering your air on the way out)

• Surgical Mask: these masks were designed and approved for STERILE environments. The amount of particles and contaminants in the outside and indoor environments where people are CLOGG these masks very Very quickly. The moisture from your breath combined with the clogged mask with render it “useless” IF you come in contact with Covid and your mask traps it You become a walking virus dispenser. Everytime you put your mask on you are breathing the germs from EVERYWHERE you went. They should be changed or thrown out every “20-30 minutes in a non sterile environment”

Cloth masks: today three people pointed to their masks as they walked by me entering Lowe’s. They said “ya gotta wear your mask BRO” I said very clearly “those masks don’t work bro, in fact they MAKE you sicker” they “pshh’d” me.

By now hopefully you all know CLOTH masks do not filter anything. You mean the American flag one my aunt made? Yes. The one with sunflowers that looks so cute? Yes. The bandanna, the cut up t-shirt, the scarf ALL of them offer NO FILTERING whatsoever. As you exhale you are ridding your lungs of contaminants and carbon dioxide. Cloth masks trap this carbon dioxide the best. It actually risks health. The moisture caught in these masks can become mildew ridden over night. Dry coughing, enhanced allergies, sore throat are all symptoms of a micro-mold in your mask.

Ultimate Answer: Ported P95 blows the virus into the air from a contaminated person and N95 holes are larger than the coronavirus and does not block particles that small. And most importantly, asymptomatic transmission is not happening anyway.

The surgical mask is not designed for the outside world and will not filter the virus upon inhaling through it. It’s filtration works on the exhale. (Like a vacuum bag it only works one way)

Cloth masks are WORSE than none.

The CDC wants us to keep wearing masks. The masks don’t work.

*Occupational Safety & Health Administration sited.
The top American organization for safety.
They regulate and educate asbestos workers, surgical rooms, you name it.
If your mask gives you security wear it, just know it is a false sense of security.

If stores stopped enforcing it no one would continue this nonsense.
==============================
If work requires you to wear a mask, OSHA requires that your employer verifies you are receiving a minimum of 19.5% oxygen level by law! Are your oxygen levels being monitored while at work? Are you experiencing dizziness and headaches? This is a written law NOT a recommendation! I guarantee if employees started citing law and demanding their employers follow the law then the masks would go away!

Racist black protester screams that blacks shouldn’t have children with whites

An angry mob of Black Lives Matter protesters in London was treated to a racist tirade by a black woman the other day who warned that black people should not have “a child with a white person.”

Before a crowd gathered in Parliament Square, this protester openly defied England’s Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown while screaming from a platform about “systemic racism” and the need for a “revolution” to “overthrow the system.”

“Do not have a child with a white person unless you know they are willing to do the work to support that child,” the protester bellowed to cheers from both black and white supporters.

“I am the product of an inter-racial relationship that failed me,” she added. “I was not educated on my history; I was not educated on my rights; I was left feeling like I was aggressive as an innate part of me, not because of racism.”

Fellow supporters could be heard in the background chanting things like “silence is racism,” as well as the more common protest phrase, “no justice, no peace … no racist police.”

The woman went on to claim that while growing up she was “bullied” and told that she was too “aggressive,” but that after being told about systemic racism she realized that she was not the problem, but rather “the system was the problem.”

Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, issues a dire warning to black people to recognize their true enemy, which is not who they think it is:

“Exceptional” straight, white male turned down from London police for not being “diverse” enough

As for dealing with people’s “racist” grandparents, the speaker explained that younger people should still have “difficult conversations” with them “because we need their votes.” In other words, old people are merely needed for votes that young people have to exploit in order to advance leftist causes.

One day, however, these older votes will not be needed because a “revolution” will make it to “where we don’t need voting systems,” the speaker openly stated. “I know these conversations are uncomfortable,” she added, “but black people have been uncomfortable.”

Just like here in the United States, this same speaker called for her listeners to “research ways to defund the police,” as well as “ways we can navigate this because we need change … enough is enough.”

She went on to publicly declare that “the protest does not end here” as she urged all of those in attendance to “go home, educate yourselves, find the black radicals, be the black radicals we need to overthrow the system.”

Keep in mind that just last year, police in Cheshire unlawfully rejected a straight, white male candidate simply because he did not fit the “diversity” requirements that the force was looking to attract.

While the protest at which this call for revolution was made was characterized by the media as being “mostly peaceful,” reports indicate that the demonstrations turned violent on Whitehall, which is located near the Prime Minister’s Downing Street residence.

Protesters from both Black Lives Matter and Antifa also swarmed many other streets in and around the British capital with calls “to burn this s*** down.” They also openly celebrated the chaos and rioting taking place in the U.S., noting it as a sign that the “West is Falling.”

“If you want to shout and scream at me that every life matters, why are you not in the streets showing me that my black life matters?” the shouting black woman concluded, with blatant disregard for local social distancing restrictions.

CHAOS ALERT: New CHAZ Antifa / BLM mini-cities to pop up in every single Democrat run state in every metropolitan city and all mayors will be sworn to stand down

If the death of George Floyd wasn’t planned by the Left, it was a timely catapult for Soros-funded chaos. It was only a matter of time before George Soros’ money was enough for bored, young, chaotic, frustrated, brainwashed dudes in their twenties (and their stoned girlfriends) to go buy some liquid courage, drugs and spray paint, and take over a small section of downtown Seattle (the artsy-fartsy district, by the way). Now, the nation of libtard or “CHAZ” (acronym for Capital Hill Autonomous Zone) is a mecca, a prototype, a litmus test and a perfect model of what at least 100 more metropolitan “districts” will look like next month. In fact, a new autonomous zonealready popped up in Chicago.

Bill Gates and George Soros fuel the violent, demented, and sickly atrocities of the world today

It was a rather simple formula. Have Bill Gates release a disease. Shutter all small businesses and create massively long lines for food, so everybody gets used to it. Make them all wear face coverings so it becomes so inhuman, nobody even cares about anybody else at all.

Then fund dozens of Hate-Trump groups where most members already have an arrest record and no jobs, and pay them to go be violent, also promising them, and this is the key to it all… to get bailed out or get off Scott-free because the police are told to stand down, the judges are sworn to Obama, and there’s no bail set anyway.

Yes, here are all the companies that FUND Antifa and Black Lives Matter, just so you know. Go ahead and click and read. We can wait. Ads are literally being run, hiring these brainwashed freaks the media spit out in just 4 short years, to create the most chaotic, idiotic, outright dangerous “protests” that are supported by every single Democrat in office right now.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are instructed by Obama and the Clintons. Obama and the Clintons answer directly to George Soros and Bill Gates. The Governors of New York, Virginia, Minnesota, California and Washington bow down and do anything they’re told, and the crap rolls down hill to the mayors, and finally to the scum of the earth, Antifa.

It’s all brought to you by the Nazis that run the social media platforms. It’s time to cage the “beast” by voting every Democrat out of office over the next two years.

Make no mistake, the Democrats want to get RID of all police, not just “defund” them, as the media spin goes

Socialism means absolute chaos for the middle and lower class. Socialism is what all Democrats want now for America, and the few who don’t won’t matter, because the money is coming from one of the richest people in the world, George “Nazi” Soros. Socialism means getting rid of all the police, not just taking away certain funds for certain expensive weapons and gear.

Socialism means nobody owns their own business anymore, and all income is taxed at 70 percent or higher for embezzlement hoaxes and schemes, better known as climate change and the military industrial war complex. Are you stressed yet? Vote them out, or it will come.

Now, you’re probably ready for the best stress relief about politics you can find right now, especially since all the late shows and SNL are in the toilet (play laugh track here). Get ready. Learn just how dumb the “No Police Democrats” have become as the brilliant and hilarious Hodgetwins (they’re also comedians) rip into the biggest political lies ever besieged upon the Sheeplecrats.

Tune your internet dial to Trump.news and watch the Democrat-run cities collapse as Antifa and BLM terrorists start starving to death because truckers across the country are saying they won’t deliver food to areas with no cops working.

BREAKING: China preparing to kill 90% of U.S. population with “EMP Pearl Harbor” first strike attack, followed by military invasion and occupation of America

Communist China, which has now achieved complete control of Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other tech giants, is planning on launching an “EMP Pearl Harbor” attack on America that would kill an estimated 90% of the U.S. population, warns a truly alarming new report from the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security.

The report, shown below, is authored by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry and warns that China now possesses three key technologies — mostly derived from stolen intellectual property — that are being prepared to launch a first strike attack against the United States of America.

Those technologies are:

1) EMP warheads mounted on missiles which can be launched against naval ships as well as U.S. cities or battlefield targets. These weapons destroy all modern electronics, disabling the U.S. power grid and sending cities back to the 19th century. They can also disable naval vessels. (Read EMP.news for more details about EMP weapons.)

2) Hypersonic missiles that travel at multiples of the speed of sound, bypassing modern anti-missile defenses, allowing China to achieve precision kinetic strikes on targets deep inside the U.S. mainland (such as military installations or even the White House).

3) EMP satellite weapons, which are satellites armed with nuclear weapons that are fine-tuned to unleash EMP explosions in orbit, intended to wipe out U.S. satellites that are key for military communications.

More details on these weapons are offered in this AllNewsPipeline article which adds:

In future high-tech warfare under informatized conditions, information warfare will span multiple dimensions, including ground, sea, air, and the EM spectrum. Information superiority has already become central and crucial to achieving victory in warfare…If the communications equipment used for the transmission of battlefield information were attacked and damaged by an opponent’s EMP weapons, then the one attacked would face the danger of disruption in battlefield information transmission. EMP severely restricts the tactical performance and battlefield survivability of informatized equipment.

These weapon systems follow in the footsteps of the Wuhan coronavirus bioweapon which was funded in part by Obama’s NIH, allowing China to build a deadly biological weapon that was released onto the world in late 2019, devastating world economies. Now, China is looking to follow up its bioweapons release with an EMP attack.

China intends to launch a surprise attack on America

As the report states, many U.S. military leaders are well aware that China is not merely taking a defensive stance but intends to launch these weapons as a “Pearl Harbor” first strike offensive weapon. From the report:

Chief of U.S. Strategic Command, Admiral Charles Richard, testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2020 that he could “drive a truck through China’s no first use policy.”

China’s unprecedented rapid expansion of its nuclear and missile capabilities is not consistent with a belief in “Minimum Deterrence” and “No First Use” but looks imitative of Russia’s policy seeking escalation dominance for nuclear diplomacy and nuclear war fighting. Lt. General Robert Ashley, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, warned in 2019: “China is likely to at least double the size of its nuclear stockpile in the course of implementing the most rapid expansion and diversification of its nuclear arsenal in China’s history… China launched more ballistic missiles for testing and training than the rest of the world combined.”

The EMP weapons that China is perfecting would destroy the power grid, collapsing the United States of America into mass starvation, chaos and economic collapse. Although this seems to be exactly what Democrats want for America, it’s obviously a very dangerous scenario. This achieves China’s goal of eliminating the American people without destroying the natural resources and farmland through the use of nuclear weapons, which contaminate soils for three centuries with radioisotopes.

As Pry explains in the report, “a highly computerized open society like the United States is extremely vulnerable to electronic attacks from all sides. This is because the U.S. economy, from banks to telephone systems and from power plants to iron and steel works, relies entirely on computer network.”

Once the American people begin to die off in large numbers, China will stage a military invasion to occupy America and kill any remaining resistance. At that point, China will claim America for itself and begin a mass migration effort to colonize America with communist Chinese.

All this has been meticulously documented by people like J.R. Nyquist (JYquist.blog) and Dave Hodges (TheCommonsenseShow.com), both of whom I have interviewed about these critical issues:

And here’s a recent interview with Hodges about the coming invasion of America by Chinese troops:

Brain dead Leftists think they want to live under communism, not realizing they will be among the first who are executed by the communist Chinese

Leftists in America today are delusional, deranged lunatics who think they want to live under communism. But if they get their wish, they will actually die under communism, because communist China has no plans to allow American liberals to continue to occupy North America once the next phase of World War III is unleashed.

In fact, no nation in the world has any use for a culture of cognitively retarded crybully snowflakes who don’t know how to produce anything but have been brainwashed into “victimhood” by a failed education system and a corrupt, propaganda-pushing fake news media complex. If the communist Chinese succeed in their invasion plans, libtard Leftists will be among the very first who are lined up and executed.

That’s why Leftists in California, Oregon, Washington, New York and other left-leaning states will find themselves either executed, rounded up for labor camps or used as sex slaves for the invading Chinese army. No doubt left-wing white women who currently bow down before Black Lives Matter terrorists will probably also bow down before their communist conquerors, celebrating the end of America while they are mercilessly raped by occupying Chinese troops. White guilt has no limit, it seems, as we’re already seeing with the Mayor of Seattle surrendering to Black Lives Matter terrorists.

All the institutions of America are now allied with communist China in seeking the destruction of our constitutional republic. These include the tech giantslike Google, Hollywood and the entertainment industry, the corporate-run media establishment, the U.S. Congress and the deep state intelligence community. Every element in American society, it seems is actively begging for communism while working diligently to destroy the rule of law in America, overthrow the U.S. Constitution and end democracy (and free speech) forever.

This is why if America is to survive, the American people must rise up now and take their country back from the left-wing traitors and terrorists who are collaborating with China to destroy this great nation.

Kente Cloth Worn By Democrats Was ‘Historically Worn’ By African Empire Involved In Slave Trade, Fact Checker Says

A top mainstream fact-checker wrote on Tuesday that the Kente cloths that Democrats wore earlier this month after the death of George Floyd were “historically worn” by an “empire involved in [the] West African slave trade.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, and other top Democrats wore the cloth to an event on June 8 in response to Floyd’s death, which was widely criticized online.

I had to say something about the American politicians shameless and ignorantly using the Kente fabric as a prop in their virtue signaling.

*I’m usually more mild mannered than this so please forgive me, I’m upset.

USA Today fact-checked the following statement from a Facebook user:

Yesterday the Democrats wore kente scarfs and knelt down for their photo op. So check this out, Kente cloth was worn by the Ashanti. It’s made of silk so the affluent wore it. The Ashanti were also known as slave owners and traders. Huh? … This makes me wonder why they chose to wear this particular tribe’s garb.

It’s important to note that the cloth has historical significance that extends beyond the slave trade and has “become a symbol of pride for African Americans over the last 50 years.”

USA Today rated the claim “true,” saying that the “kente cloth was historically worn by the Asante people of Ghana, who were involved in the West African slave trade.”

USA Today’s research found:

Kente cloth comes from the Asante, or Ashanti, peoples of Ghana and Ewe peoples of Ghana and Togo.

A popular legend claims creators of kente cloth presented the cloth to Asantehene Osei Tutu, the Asante kingdom’s first leader. Tutu named the cloth “kente,” meaning basket, and adopted the fabric as a royal cloth for special occasions.

Tutu, who lived from 1660 to 1712 or 1717, unified several small Asante kingdoms to create the Asante empire. He is credited with expanding the Asante throughout most of Ghana and introducing his subjects to the gold and slave trades along the West African coast.

The Asante supplied British and Dutch traders with slaves in exchange for firearms, which they used to expand their empire. Slaves were often acquired as tributes from smaller states or captured during war. Some slaves were brought across the Atlantic whiles others stayed in Africa to work in gold fields.

According to the BBC, by the end of the 18th century the region exported an estimated 6,000-7,000 slaves per year.

After Democrats wore the cloth, The Daily Wire highlighted how various reports noted that the cloth typically signified patriotism or was worn to celebrate special celebrations.

Pro-life advocate Obianuju Ekeocha, who lives in Africa, released a video on Twitter condemning the Democrats for “ignorantly using the Kente fabric as a prop in their virtue signaling.”

“I was just looking online today like most of you and what did I see? A bunch of Democrat politicians kneeling down, of which I have nothing to say about that because I am not an American, however, they were all having around their necks this colorful fabric which I’m sure they put around their necks as some kind of mark or show of unity or solidarity with black people,” Ekeocha said. “So, in other words, they put in for the Kente material or this colorful fabric they had around their necks as some kind of placating sign or symbol to show that they are not racist and they are together with black people.”

“Excuse me, dear Democrats, in your tokenism, you didn’t wait to find out that this thing that you’re hanging around your neck is not just some African uniform, it’s actually the Kente material,” Ekeocha continued. “The Kente belongs to the Ghanaian people, mainly the Ashanti Tribe. Excuse me, Democrats. Don’t treat Africans like we’re children. These fabrics and these colorful things that we have within our culture and tradition, they all mean something to us. I know you look at us and you say, ‘oh Africans are so cute in all your colorful dresses.’”

“Well, some of those dresses and patterns and colors and fabrics actually do mean something to us,” Ekeocha added. “Some of them belong to ancient tribes and mean something to them. So why are you using it your own show of non-racism or your own show of virtue? Why are you using the Kente material to signal your virtue? Stop it. We are not children. Africans are not children. And leave our tradition and our culture to us and if you don’t know much about it, ask somebody. I’m sure there would have been something else you could have done to show your solidarity with black people instead of taking the Kente material and making a little show of it.”
