After issuing a standard ‘I’m sorry if anybody took offense to my comments’ non-apology apology, Troy Councilwoman Anastasia Robertson deleted her Facebook posts suggesting the federal government was “rounding up and executing” blacks, and referring to America as ‘AmeriKKKa.’
The Democrat councilwoman and local school teacher issued a statement at a recent city council meeting, in which she claimed that as an African-American, her experiences led her to make such comments. She would add, “I do recognize my word choice was unfortunate and offensive to some.”
Apparently, saying that some people took offense and that it was simply just a poor choice of words was enough for Robertson, as she wiped the comments clean from the article page hoping they would go down the internet memory hole.
Fortunately, the internet is forever. Here is a recap…
He asks, “Could this be a covert plan to create an atmosphere that will allow homeland security to round up Black People and intern us under the Pat-riot Act combined with The King Alfred Plan?”
So well said…..this is a deliberate action of force……the end means does in fact seem to be leading to rounding up and executing of us as a people……Does America want to have a race war? Or we being baited for a systematic change in how Blacks are dealt with in this country?
That is a sitting councilwoman in Troy, New York claiming that police action in Ferguson is “leading to rounding up and executing of us as a people.”
Here is a screen cap of the comments:
And she doubled down…
Robertson says that while “we” (African-Americans) believe in peaceful resolutions, the time has perhaps come for a change.
While we believe in peace and reconciliation, at what point do we simply face the facts that AMERIKKKA has no love for the Black Nation and that there is something inherently wrong and that WE have become the race to disseminate and destroy…….I believe in the constitution and the rights of all Americans to live peacefully and abundantly, however that is NOT how we live. We have become targets in our OWN land.
Robertson goes on to make the claim that “nobody can remember the last time an unarmed white person” died at the hands of the police. A simple Google search shows that this has indeed happened in several communities, several times in the last few weeks alone when Robertson posted her comments.
In keeping with the conspiratorial tone, Robertson then goes on to say that the orders to “exterminate” blacks are not coming from local police departments themselves, but from “high up.”
… this is bigger than us…it is bigger than the police force….these orders come from high up….We have filled your slave ships and then your plantation, now your jails where for at least the next 50 years you remain gainfully employed off the lives of our brothers and sisters to the point where YOU can afford to simply exterminate us.
Lest one believe the claim of this being “high up” means at the Presidential level, Robertson clarifies by pleading with Obama to do something about this.
Robertson finishes with a claim that the situation has led to “militarization against our people” and asks “Does AmeriKKKa want a RACE war?”
Amazingly, Robertson not only serves as an elected official to the Troy City Council, but she is a member of the Public Safety Committee.
Last week, the president of Troy’s Police Benevolent Association accused Robertson of trying to provoke police officers into a physical altercation, which led Anastasia Robertson to storm out of the meeting. The video of the incident went viral garnering well over 100,000 views.
But the incendiary comments remain a separate and distinct issue.
Council President Rodney Wiltshire claimed that Robertson’s comments were acceptable, as she was not making them as a councilwoman.
One has to wonder if Wiltshire and the Democrats would offer the same defense to a white police officer who, while out of uniform and off duty, posted comments in support of the KKK and saying African-Americans should be rounded up.
I think we know the answer to that.
Should somebody entrusted with Public Safety be spouting off about the police “exterminating” black people, calling America the KKK, threatening a race war, and trying to instigate a racial incident with the police force she represents?
Again, we have to ask the Troy City Council, do you support Ms. Robertson’s position or will you ask her to resign in light of these remarks?
Unfortunately for Robertson and the rest of the council, the answer to that question still needs to be addressed. Her comments, while deleted, are never fully off of the internet.
