In a bid to help his white supremacist and neo-Nazi friends – the Chump tries to stop anti-terrorist law enforcement against them –
FOX News and other right wing racist media now use fake news propaganda to incite neo-Nazi and white supremacist thugs into violence against minority individuals and families.
Who is going to hold the scumbags responsible? They are responsible for thousands of hate crimes since the election.
Perhaps some folks need to consider how to make fake right wing news a little less profitable…
The school says it absolutely did not cancel the production because of religious complaints.
A Jewish family in Pennsylvania has pulled their child out of school and left town after media outlets across the country ran stories blaming them for the cancellation of a Christmas play.
Local station WHTM reported last week that Centerville Elementary School in Lancaster decided not to put on its production of “A Christmas Carol” this year after two parents complained to the them about the famous line, “God bless us, everyone.” The school had been doing the play for more than 40 years.
WHTM said school officials told the news outlet the play was not cancelled because of complaints about that line, although “many parents” believed it was so.
The Fox News commentary piece framed the controversy as part of the so-called “War on Christmas.” “[T]his year, I’m afraid Tiny Tim’s goose has been cooked by the Ghost of Christmas Intolerance,” the article stated.
But the Hempfield School District has vehemently denied this account of why it cancelled the play, and a Jewish family that says it’s being blamed for the controversy is so afraid for their safety they have left the area, at least temporarily. The earlier articles did not identify the parents being blamed as Jewish or identify them by name.
The parents of a fifth grader in the district told LancasterOnline that they never asked for the play to be cancelled or complained about it; they simply asked for their child to be excused and were told that was fine.
But they said since the school announced the cancellation last month, classmates had harassed their child. And after the story broke nationally, the school said it received at least 200 phone calls and emails about the play.
The family said they were disturbed by some of the comments on the conservative outlets’ stories ― including one on the Breitbart story asking for information about the family’s address.
And after a fake news story created an uproar over a pizza place in Washington, D.C. ― which ultimately resulted in a man coming in with an assault rifle to “self-investigate” whether there truly was a child sex ring there ― the family said they didn’t want to risk their safety by sticking around, although they were hoping to be able to come back.
“There’s no way we’re going to take a chance after the pizza incident,” said the parents, who were not named by LancasterOnline.
The Hempfield School District has backed up the family’s account. Officials have posted an FAQ sheet on its website and said the play was absolutely not cancelled because of complaints over the “God bless us” line. Instead, they dropped it because it consumed too much instructional time in the classroom. From the FAQ sheet:
The mental acuity of many Trumpazoids is at the level of a Kumquat. Which is how they have been easily manipulated by the Republican Party and now Trump. Give them a salacious story, an these idiots will eat it up like Manna from God, being to stupid to do any validity check as long as it supports their prejudices.
The problem is, they are also easily manipulated into violence.
The fabricated propaganda piece for ignorant white assholes in this case is based partially on a real story. I am pretty intimate with the details because I was involved very peripherally with sorting some of the information out shortly after my arrival after the earthquake. A white, American “Evangelical” supposedly with a Church in Idaho came to Haiti supposedly to help the earthquake victims. The Church was real, and the woman’s association with the Church was real. Virtual Child slavery is not uncommon in Haiti, in a system they call Restavek, wherein poor families sell their children as servants in rich families households. There are about 300,000 children held in the system. The buyer of the children’s services is contracted to feed and clothe the children, pay an extremely minimal wage, and in some cases to provide for their education.
White church lady saw an opportunity. The Dominican Republic is one of the world centers of child prostitution. Many of the children forced into prostitution come from Haiti, and they are frequently acquired through fake Restavek agreements with poor families. The prostitution rings in the DR would gladly pay for children who were delivered across the border. Church lady set up a fake “orphanage” in the DR – and went about selling children into prostitution. Before she could deliver her first load, she was caught.
In the Meth and heroin infused world of the right wing racist whack jobs, this became a story of Hillary Clinton and the church lady being in business together and shipping over 100,000 children to the US to a restaurant in DC for prostitution.
For some reason, the shit spewing right wing propagandists chose a real restaurant.
The popular pizza restaurant was implicated in a preposterous right-wing conspiracy theory that spread through fake news stories.
A jarring incident at a restaurant that has faced violent threats because of an unfounded and preposterous conspiracy theory raises concerns about the real-world consequences of spreading fake news stories.
Washington, D.C., police on Sunday afternoon detained a man armed with an assault rifle at Comet Ping Pong, a popular pizza restaurant in a busy neighborhood of the city.
According to police, the man entered the restaurant with an assault rifle; there were conflicting reports of gunshots. Police locked down the surrounding block, which includes other restaurants and shops, including a popular bookstore, Politics and Prose.
While no one was injured, and it is unclear what the suspect’s motive was, the incident is alarming because the restaurant has been the subject of death threats originating from a false right-wing conspiracy theory alleging that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and campaign chairman John Podesta ran a child sex trafficking ring in the back of the restaurant.
There is no evidence of the disturbing claim, but it quickly spread through fake news stories on right-wing websites and circulated on social media. Among those tweeting a spurious story alleging Clinton’s “sex crimes” to his more than 100,000 followers, was Gen. Mike Flynn, President-elect Donald Trump’s appointee for national security adviser.
After the restaurant’s owner, James Alefantis, and staffers began receiving death threats, Alefantis contacted local and federal authorities, including the FBI, to get the fake news stories removed. But the threats continued, and nearby businesses have also reported threats in recent weeks, according to the Washington Post.
“One person said he wanted to line us up in front of a firing squad,” Matt Carr, the owner of a nearby coffee shop, told the Post.
Of Sunday’s incident, he said: “This was our worst fear, that someone would read all this and come to the block with a gun. And today it happened.”
Yet another right-wing racist nut case murderer…
Perhaps now some of the small verbose faction of hardhead cops who believe BLM is a “problem” will wake up to who the real threat is.
There is a big difference between black folks peacefully demonstrating and white whack-jobs with guns killing innocent cops.
The suspect in the “ambush” killings of two Iowa police officers was kicked out of a high school football game last month after clashing with black fans over his Confederate flag.
Scott Michael Greene was identified by police as the gunman who fatally shot the officers in separate attacks early Wednesday morning in the Des Moines area.
He remained at large as of 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and is considered armed and dangerous.
A YouTube video uploaded to an account belonging to Scott Greene appears to show him arguing with Des Moines police officers after he claimed he was assaulted by fans Oct. 14 at a football game at Urbandale High School.
The officers asked the man to leave school property after the altercation, which witnesses said Greene instigated by carrying an American flag and Confederate flag.
“I think I’ve been assaulted by you,” Greene says to the officers. “You grabbed me and shoved me around.”
Greene posted a photo of himself holding the flags as several black fans in the background appear to yell at him, which his caption shows he considered a “civil rights violation.”
He offered a tragically ironic explanation for his Confederate flag display in a comment posted on the YouTube video.
“I was offended by the blacks sitting through our anthem,” Greene said. “Thousands more whites fought and died for their freedom. However this is not about the Armed forces, they are cop haters.”
He posted three other short video complaints set to music about drafty windows at his apartment building, along with another viral video showing a Latino “gang member” threatening a group of bikers with a gun.
Greene was arrested in 2001 on charges of domestic assault, assault causing bodily injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
He was also charged with drunken driving in 2010 and with first-degree harassment in 2014.
This is stuck on stupid. A cop who is supposed to uphold the law, joining an extremist right wing group (and bringing it to work) which in various turns is both racist and opposes the US Government, losing his job…
The organization is made up of current and former military and police who vow to uphold the Constitution, but it has caught the attention of hate-watch groups.
Chief Timothy Altomare says the hat appears to violate the department’s policy against officers espousing political beliefs and such conduct won’t be tolerated.
More Trump crazies in the news. Three white nationalists were arrested in Kansas planning to blow up an apartment building because many of the residents were Somalis.
Three men have been arrested and charged with planning to use a weapon of mass destruction in a terrorist attack on a mosque and housing complex in a western Kansas town where Somali immigrants live and worship,according to the U.S. Justice Department.
The men were part of a militia group whose members called themselves “The Crusaders,” Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said at a news conference. They had conspired to detonate a bomb at an apartment complex in Garden City, Kan., which houses about 120 people, many of whom are Muslim.
The defendants had allegedly conducted surveillance of the housing complex, stockpiled firearms and bomb-making materials and had even written a manifesto that was to be published in conjunction with the attack, which was scheduled for Nov. 9, the day after the presidential election.
“One of [the defendants] said the bombing would ‘wake people up,’ ” Beall said.
The arrests come after an eight-month investigation of the three men, identified as Curtis Allen, 49, Gavin Wright, 49, and Patrick Eugene Stein, 47. During that time, investigators say, the men considered a number of targets, including churches and public officials who supported Somali immigrants, as well as landlords who rented to Somalis.
They allegedly settled on the apartment complex. Some local people call the complex “Somali Town,” says Garden Valley Church pastor Steve Ensz.
Ensz’s church is about a mile from the apartment complex and helps refugees acclimate to life in western Kansas. He tells NPR he was “saddened, but not surprised” to hear the news and says that most people in Garden City are “good moral people, welcoming to refugees.”
When told that the defendants allegedly wanted to “wake people up,” Ensz said, “They’re the ones that need to be woken up.”
If convicted, the three men would face up to life in federal prison.
Thou shall not screw with the law of the land!
This guy has been trying to jam his religion down everyone’s throat since he was selected to office. Long past time for him to go.
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay from the state supreme court on Friday—a suspension that will last through the remainder of his term, which ends in 2018. The Alabama Judicial Inquiry Committee found that Moore violated ethics laws and judicial canons by repeatedly attempting to block same-sex marriage in Alabama long after the federal judiciary required it.
Moore’s misconduct regarding same-sex marriage litigation was sweeping and extensive. In January of 2015, a federal judge invalidated the state’s same-sex marriage ban. Moore promptly wrote letters to probate judges insisting that they remained legally prohibited from marrying gay people—in effect, demanding that they violate a federal court order. In May of that year, the judge explicitly held that probate judges must issue marriage licenses to all couples, same-sex or opposite-sex. The next month, the Supreme Court held that same-sex marriage bans violate the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Yet in January of 2016, Moore issued yet another letter ordering probate judges to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Then, in March, Moore penned a bizarre opinion calling the Supreme Court’s decision “immoral,” “tyrannical,” and “unconstitutional.” He declared that he would refuse to follow it and urged all other state judges to follow suit. In response to Moore’s repeated defiance of federal court orders, the Southern Poverty Law Center filed a judicial ethics complaint against him. Moore secured Mat Staver, Kim Davis’ attorney, to defend him.
Alabama’s judicial ethics committee is not a beacon of progressivism. Its judgment in the Moore case begins with a declaration that many members of the committee do not “personally agree” with the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling or think it was “well reasoned.” But the committee unanimously concluded that Moore had abused his position, violated the integrity of the judiciary, failed to comply with the law and perform his duties impartially, and brought “the judicial office into disrepute.” In addition to suspending Moore, the committee ordered him to pay “the costs of this proceeding.”
Moore has already been removed from the bench once, in 2003, for refusing to comply with a federal court order to remove a massive granite monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama State Judicial Building. Alabama voters, however,reelected him in 2012. In response to the Moore proceedings, the Alabama Republican Party is attempting to diminish the ethics’ committee’s independence.
