A few lies never hurt any republic... Sunny Hostin, Deray McKesson, and the ringleaders at FBI.

Out IN Front

We used to be ashamed of being wrong, now some build careers on lies. The CPI is a lie that's going to destroy personal wealth, especially the "gee, I've got $50 in savings" type Americans.  ("We're all in this together" was already used by the Fauci-virus people.) Deray is tonight's contestant on "Where's that a**hole now?" There's NO WAY liberals believe the distraction lies like men having periods and giving birth. They just like hating others, and they know the mentally challenged think the fight is real. The FBI knows how to stir the pot (and smoke it).  Seriously, they need to stop assisting violent rioters like Antifa and BLM. They had one job.

Ep. 566 - The price my family has paid for the lies of Deray McKesson

The Breakdown with Shaun King

What happens in the dark always comes to light. ALWAYS. And for the past 8 years, few people have spread more lies and caused me more trouble than Deray McKesson. It has caused my wife, my kids, my mother, my extended family, and the organizations I lead so much trouble and heartache. This week his co-founders came out to say that he has not only mistreated them and stolen their work, but that he has failed to account for an astounding $40 million he raised in the names of families that he hasn't even supported. Now it all makes sense to me. He has laser-focused misinformation campaigns on me to get the attention off of himself. You don't have to believe in Karma for it to be real. The principle of "you reap what you sow" is thousands of years old. And I don't delight in the Karma Deray is now receiving - that's not my way - but I will say it's overdue. Sadly, after years of people lying and saying I was the one misspending funds - in spite of me releasing hundreds of pages of reports and accounting showing nothing of the sort, we now see that it is actually a real problem with Deray and many others in this movement. All I can do is continue to let my work and my impact speak for itself.

MIP | Make It Plain with Rev. Mark Thompson

Civil Rights 2.0 A Conversation with DeRay Mckesson

Blazing Trails

2020 was a year of dramatic change – social, economic, cultural. So what did we learn? And what can we take with us into 2021 and beyond? Joining the podcast is civil rights activist, co-founder of Campaign Zero, and host of the award-winning “Pod Save the People,” DeRay Mckesson. DeRay sits down with Salesforce Senior Managing Director Lola Banjo to discuss how he got started in activism, what it takes to bring about lasting change, and what you can do locally in your community to be an ally. In his words:“What I've learned in the social justice space over the years is that there is infinitely more work done on the problems than the solutions… I don't need another speech. I don't need a march. I don't need a workshop. I don't need a movie. I got it. The question becomes, what do we do? How do we do it? And I think that is messy work.”
