On June 19, 2020, agitators in Austin, Texas stormed the police headquarters and pulled down the U.S. and Texas flags.
According to PJ Media, protesters were chanting “’F*** the police!’ over and over again.” The video that caught this incident depicted the agitators lowering the Texas amid loud cheering. Apparently, the American flag was lowered before the recording started.
One tweet has photos of flags burning on the ground.

This entire episode did not morph into anything more violent.
However, on June 20. 2020, the Austin Police Association posted some surprising news on its Facebook feed.
APD is likely to see the number of police retirements double by the end of the year.
The APA highlighted that the city of Austin city council voted unanimously to defund the police. The city manager followed up and announced the elimination of 100 sworn officer positions and new delays in the current cadet class.
Due to Austin’s increasingly lax policing policies, the Texas Department of Public Safety is starting to pick up slack by patrolling Austin’s streets. In recent weeks, Mayor Steve Adler and the city council have been trashing APD in recent weeks. The city council has been attempting to force Police Chief Brian Manley to abdicate after an activist group has been clamoring for him to get the boot, but have been unsuccessful so far. State law does not allow the city council to fire police chiefs.
The anti-police radicalism is clearly spreading like a virus.
Should the Left have their way, America will be on the cusp of experiencing an unprecedented crime wave.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
