KENOSHA, WI – Some people are just so desperate for attention… so hungry for relevancy… that they’ll risk defamation lawsuits simply to bring attention to themselves.
Extreme left-wing activist Shaun King, began doxing Kenosha Police Officers after his demands at announcing the officer’s name were not answered. And of course he denies it.
King, a celebrity in his own mind, had complained about not releasing the name of the officer that shot Blake as quickly as he would like. Perhaps it is time to let King know that it does not matter what he wants or demands. He is irrelevant.
Everything has a process, including ensuring the safety of the officer and his family from Black Lives Matter and others who would wish to do him harm.
After all, this is the same extremist who chimed in and encouraged anarchy and violence.
“Nah. I’m not going to call for peace. We’ve tried peace. For years. Y’all don’t understand that language. We are calling for a complete dismantling of American policing. It’s NOT broken. It was built to work this way. And mayhem is the consequence. You earned it.”
To any police officers falsely named by @ShaunKing via his terrorist/extortion threats below, know that lawyers are on standby to help you teach Talcum X a lesson about defamation in court. https://t.co/5EJL41NTH3

However, King thinks himself important and tweeted:
To the Kenosha Police Department,
If you do not name the officer who brutally shot Jacob Blake on Sunday, we will simply begin naming officers from your department who may or may not be him.
Your protection of his identity is unethical.
What’s his name?

“To the Kenosha Police Department, If you do not name the officer who brutally shot Jacob Blake on Sunday, we will simply begin naming officers from your department who may or may not be him…[expletive] it.
Your protection of his identity is unethical. What’s his name?”
King then began taking pictures from social media of different Kenosha Police officers and compared them to the picture seen on video of the officer shooting Blake.
Captions like “is this him” were seen on the posts.
Picture after picture, and King states that what he did was not doxing. King tweeted:
“I literally did not dox a single person. This is not doxing. I never named an officer. And naming police officers on a public force, which I also did not do, is not doxing.”
I literally did not dox a single person. This is not doxxing.
I never named an officer.
And naming police officers on a public force, which I also did not do, is not doxxing. https://t.co/ys1RDE3SgQ

Whether or not taking pictures of police officers and holding them out for his social media following to attempt to identify, as if doing a line up, is doxing or not, who knows.
However, it is very dangerous when you are taking pictures of officers who may have had nothing to do with the shooting and inferring to your angry mob that that officer may be the one involved in the shooting should be criminal.
At least steps were being taken to safeguard that officer and his family, the same cannot be said about the other officers he blasted on social media.
We’re not sure what is unethical about providing an American citizen due process under the law.
Everyone in America knows that the officer faces real threats from Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other criminals who wish to do him harm, without going through any type of trial which would be afforded to anyone else.
King thinks that it is perfectly acceptable to automatically assume, and claim, that people he believes are innocent until proven guilty, but he refuses to give the same benefit of the doubt to a police officer, shameless.
Now, no one knows for sure whether or not this shooting will indeed be ruled justified or if it was.
What is known is Blake inserted himself into a situation that it appears he did not belong.
Blake, a criminal, had several arrest warrants out for him when he encountered police, one of the most serious charges was for rape, he has a known history of being armed and resisting police, and he is on video fighting with police prior to the shooting.
We also know that he completely ignored all lawful orders given to him by the officers to stop and not enter the vehicle. The only piece of the puzzle we do not know, as of yet, is what Blake was reaching for on the floorboard prior to him being shot.
However, instead of allowing for the police investigation to work, and afford the opportunity for the safety of the involved officer and his family to be assured, King jumps up on his high horse and refused to call for an end to the violence and carnage for what is left of the city.
King is quickly becoming one of the more dangerous people in America. Here’s more on his outrageous “demands”.
The latest outrage: Milk and Jesus both symbolic of white supremacy, according to PETA and Shaun King. (Op-ed)
This editorial is brought to you by a United States veteran and staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
I cannot make this up. Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t make this up. I am just not that creative. In this ever-evolving landscape of “everything is racist”, we have two new submissions for your consideration of things that are symbolic of white supremacy.
Milk and Jesus.
I told you we cannot make this stuff up.
Let me explain the logic behind the arguments of PETA (milk) and Shaun King (Jesus). I will pause momentarily while you search for the sarcasm/irony in the previous sentence. Here’s a hint: there is no logic behind their arguments.
According to a 2017 article written by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), white people tend to be more lactose tolerant, thus, milk is a symbol of white supremacy.
They pointed to research that shows almost 90 percent of African Americans and most Latinos, Asians, and Southern Europeans lack the genes necessary to digest lactose, the primary sugar in milk.
So, this must be another indicator of white privilege. Since only white people as a whole can consume cow dairy, the very presence of milk in grocery store refrigerators and school lunch trays must be based in racial superiority.
What PETA, and so many others making these claims, avoided mentioning is that most people, regardless of race, stop producing the enzyme needed to tolerate and process dairy around age 5.
The vast majority of the world (nearly 70%) is allergic to milk and other dairy products. The reaction to cow dairy is different with each individual, but the science remains…milk isn’t a drink that is harmful to one or two races, while only white people can benefit from its “nutritional” value.
Of course, those glossed-over facts do not stop people with an agenda from continuing to spread the “milk is racist” propaganda.
But, right in the middle of the article by PETA, as they claim that white people alone have the ability to drink dairy because, well…racism, they also mention that the same genetic mutation that allows whites to consume milk is also found in black cattle ranchers in Africa.
PETA’s thoughts on that fact:
“That should make racists think twice.”
So, what does it mean that black Americans profited from endorsing milk if it was a poison to “almost 90% of their own community? Remember the “got milk?” and “milk mustache” ads?

Now, in case milk being racist isn’t a wild enough proposition, Jesus himself is a symbol of white supremacy, at least according to Shaun King.
Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down.
They are a form of white supremacy.
Always have been.
In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went?
Tear them down.

For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. King, he is a far-left, social justice activist who made a name for himself on social media, as a black man. The reality is that both of his biological parents are white, according to his birth certificate.
“If your religion requires Jesus to be a blonde haired, blue eyed Jesus, then your religion is not Christianity, but white supremacy,” King said. “Christian whiteness, not white Christianity, has been the primary religion of this country for hundreds of years.”
I for one was raised in a Christian home. I was never once told Jesus was white. I honestly do not think anyone I know believes that Jesus was white. I have never seen Jesus depicted as blonde-haired and blue-eyed. But none of that matters to King…because the current climate says that if you hate something bad enough, call it racist and tear it down.
“King followed the post up with another, saying that a ‘white Jesus is a lie’ and a ‘tool of white supremacy’ created to help white people use Christianity as a “tool of oppression. He added that white people would never have accepted a religion ‘from a Brown man.’
King then tweeted support from taking down all imagery, including ‘murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends.’
‘They are a gross form white supremacy,’ King wrote. ‘Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.’
Reactions on Twitter were mixed. Some agreed with King’s position, while others pointed out that cultures other than white Europeans have depicted Jesus in ways that resembled the local community.”
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who is an ordained minister, joined Fox News to discuss King’s comments.
“To say that Jesus is a symbol of white anything is absurd. In part, because Jesus wasn’t a white guy. He was a middle-Easterner, and probably had more olive skin than he did white skin. I just find that this had fallen onto a level that extends beyond the theater of the absurd.”
“It has to be one of the most unbelievable things I have ever heard. First of all, if anyone studied Jesus, they would find that He was the ultimate person that loved the unlovable, who cared for the ones that no one else cared for. He care abut people who were slaves. He cared about people who were prostitutes. He stepped in the path of the ones who were going to stone a woman caught in adultery. He was the one who intervened.
So, you can take down the art and the images depicting Jesus, but you could never take the true spirit of Jesus Christ out of the lives of His followers.”
Well said Governor. That is the reality of who Jesus is. His skin color is irrelevant.
I am reminded of a TV show in the 80’s called ‘Gimme A Break’, starring Nell Carter. She played a nanny to a white family. The father was the chief of police and his wife had passed away. She took the children to her home and they saw a painting of Jesus and He was black. One of the children commented about it.
Nell’s character calmly replied, and I am paraphrasing: “Jesus is a lot of things to a lot of people. They see Him the way they want to see him. White folks like Him white. Black folks like Him black. Kermit the Frog likes Him green.”
But this is the world we live in now. Anyone can say what they want…and if they use the word ‘racist’ in their arguments, then it must be so.
“Cops are racist. Defund them.”
“Milk is a white supremacist drink.”
“Jesus is a symbol of white supremacy.”
Sadly, I think we are just getting started.
