NJ borough officials discussed quieting ‘n*gger’ employees by giving them ‘bucket of fried chicken’: lawsuit

Published

The New Jersey borough of Red Bank this week got slapped with a racial discrimination lawsuit filed by a former parks and recreations director who claims that racist borough officials created a hostile work environment for her and other black employees.

APP.com reports that former Red Bank Parks and Recreation Director Memone Crystian is claiming in her lawsuit that former borough administrator Stanley J. Sickels once told a room full of people at the local fire house that he had just gotten through having a meeting with “the n*ggers” who worked at the Department of Public Works.

The suit also claims that Sickels and former borough council president Arthur Murphy III once joked to another council member that someone should give Crystian “a bucket of fried chicken” to “make her happy.”

Crystian claims that Sickels opposed her hiring back in 2010, and alleges that he “sought to reduce her negotiated salary; changed the borough’s policy to prevent Crystian from using accrued flextime during a medical leave, and sought to deny her admission into the state’s pension system for public employees,” according to APP.com.

She also claims that her successors as parks and recreation directors, who have been white, have not been subject to such restrictions.

Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with ‘thin-blue-line’ flag

Published

Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.

During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.

While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.

WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops

Published

Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.

Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.

"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.

Trump could use Antifa conspiracy theories to ‘investigate his political opponents’: Ex-FBI assistant director

Published

on

According to former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi, there are far more white supremacists and anti-government agitators infiltrating the peaceful Black Lives Matter protests than Antifa. He fears Trump will use Antifa as an excuse to investigate his political opponents.

Speaking to MSNBC on Sunday evening, Figliuzzi told host Brian Williams that his sources in law enforcement are telling him that President Donald Trump doesn't have his facts straight on Antifa.

"We're seeing components of legitimate frustrated protesters responding to Mr. Floyd's demise and others," explained Figliuzzi. "Then we are seeing people who are exploiting this for their own purposes, and some of them are more than just opportunistic criminals. Some of them are organized, and some of them have diverse agendas but are coming together to wreak havoc. And I think what we need to pay attention to here is what we have evidence of, what we don't have evidence of, and what we're hearing from the White House and the attorney general."
