BUSTED: Vermont white nationalist loses job at pizza chain after being spotted in Charlottesville

Another day, another Charlottesville white nationalist who finds himself out of work.

The Burlington Free Press reports that Ryan Roy, who had worked as a cook at a South Burlington Pizzeria Uno, was fired from his job after activists identified him as an attendee at last week’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Ryan Roy has been terminated,” Skip Weldon, chief marketing officer for Pizzeria Uno, told the publication. “We are committed to the fair treatment of all people and the safety of our guests and employees at our restaurants.”

In an interview with the Free Press, Roy decried the liberal activists who got him fired from his job and alleged they weren’t tolerant of his belief that white Americans should have their own country that is separate from all racial minorities.

“I think it kind of just proves my point, proves a lot of what I think, not that I needed further proof,” Roy said. “I think it’s group think.”

Roy freely admitted to attending the rally, which he said was designed to advocate turning the United States back into a “white” country.

“Obviously I would advocate for racial separation and racial nationalism or repatriation or even a return to — our country was a white country up until the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act,” he said.

Minnesota neo-Nazis fired from diner after resident exposes them posing in full SS regalia

The post-Charlottesville racist outing has claimed two more neo-Nazis.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, two neo-Nazis in Minneapolis, Minnesota were fired from the diner they worked for after being photographed in what appears to be World War II-era SS uniforms.

Hours after the mens’ “Nazi selfie” caused Minneapolis residents to call for a boycott to the Uptown Diner, the restaurant’s manager made a post of their own.

“The Uptown Diner unequivocally repudiates the beliefs and ideals of neo-Nazis and white supremacy,” the restaurant said in a statement on Facebook. “Hate and bigotry have no place in society. We are committed to fostering an inclusive, welcoming environment at our restaurant and in our community.”

Along with the post showing the former Uptown Diner employees in SS regalia, Minneapolis resident Kyle Dekker’s also revealed a profile photo of a former employee with a photo claiming he’s a member of the “Rhodesian Army” — a reference to an unrecognized white supremacist government in Zimbabwe that counts Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof among their fans.

Their swift firing constitutes yet another example of viral posts getting white supremacists fired in the wake of the violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

BUSTED: Classmates ID Charlottesville marcher and demand that high school disavow him

Another white supremacist marcher has been identified, this time by fellow graduates of the St. Louis, MO high school that he attended.

KMOV Channel 4 of St. Louis said that Clark Canepa’s fellow graduates from Ladue Horton Watkins High School urged their former school to repudiate the 21-year-old who was photographed marching with a torch and chanting Nazi slogans in Charlottesville, VA last Friday night.

Canepa appeared in a video shared by Vice News in the wake of the lethal violence that took place on Saturday. Classmates recognized him and began to spread the word.

In the video, Canepa is holding a torch and chanting the Nazi slogans “Blood and soil” and “Jews will not replace us.”

Sasha Scott, who graduated with Canepa in 2014, said, “Clear shot, absolutely, not only of him marching, but him with a tiki, him chanting, like actively participating. Wasn’t even like it was something he happened to be a part of, he was going out of his way to actively participate and show his support.”

When contacted by Channel 4, Canepa said, “It was a fantastic time. Unfortunately, the left wing violence wasn’t prevented by the police.”

Boycott Puts Ivanka Out of Nordstroms

Not sure Ivanka is guilty of anything, except being a Trump and supporting her dad..And marrying a complete low life sleazebag.  One of the big reasons business and politics shouldn’t mix.

Boycotts of Chumph supporters are working. Ivanka is just the first to fall.

As to a pro-Trump counter boycott – don’t make me laugh so hard! If Trump products were sold at Walmart – there would be a concern about kickback from the great, dead Red Zone. Nordstroms is very upscale and their stores are concentrated in, or near high income Markets.Don’t go there without your wallet!

Nordstrom Is Officially Dropping the Ivanka Trump Brand

Nordstrom (JWN, -2.21%) said on Thursday that it would stop selling Ivanka Trump items this season because of the controversial brand’s performance, a move that follows boycotts by some shoppers who are angered by her father, President Donald Trump, and his White House policies.

The luxury retailer, which has faced calls for months to dump Ivanka Trump merchandise, said that Nordstrom switches out about 10% of its assortment each year to refresh it as a matter of course in running its business, culling lines that aren’t selling well enough.

“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance,” a Nordstrom spokeswoman told Fortune in an emailed statement. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”

Ivanka Trump’s brand had been the target of the grassroots “Grab Your Wallet” campaign, which maintained a list of retailers it recommended shoppers boycott.

Nordstrom recently began phasing out items from Ivanka Trump’s collection on its website, which carries some 2,000 brands. A few heavily discounted items remain for sale on the site.

The retailer has carried items by Ivanka Trump since 2011. In an email to staff obtained by Fortune in November, Co-President Pete Nordstrom recognized the conundrum and said he was aware of boycott threats from customers.

“No matter what we do, we are going to end up disappointing some of our customers. Every single brand we offer is evaluated on their results—if people don’t buy it, we won’t sell it,” he said.

The company also responded at the time to the criticism on Twitter, saying: “We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not.”

The whole contretemps illustrates how perilous the tense U.S. political climate can be for retailers. When President Trump called many Mexicans killers and rapists during his campaign in mid-2015, Macy’s (M, +5.17%) dropped his clothing collection sold there, earning the department store chain a lot of vitriol from his supporters.

Seattle Cop Arrests 70 Year Old Man For Using Golf Club as a Cane

Elderly and Walking While Black with a non-traditional cane.

This one is crazy overboard.The officer stops the older man as he is about to cross the street, and then falsely accuses him of trying to hit her with the golf club he uses as a cane despite the entire event being on video.

Police Officer Fired For Racial Bias After Falsely Claiming Black Man Attacked Her With Golf Club

In fact, video reveals William Wingate was merely leaning on the club, which he used as a cane.

Seattle Police Officer Cynthia Whitlatch was fired Tuesday for showing racial bias and a lack of remorse when she improperly arrested a 69-year-old black man who was using a golf club as a cane.

“I was disappointed by your failure during your Loudermill hearing to take any responsibility, or show any understanding that your conduct at issue here was inappropriate,” Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole wrote in her decision to fire Whitlatch. “In particular, when I asked you what if anything you would do differently in retrospect, you stated that you would do nothingdifferently.”

In July 2014, Whitlatch arrested William Wingate, then 69, claiming he had swung a golf club at her patrol car. He was convicted of unlawful use of a weapon, under a plea deal in which the charge would be dismissed if Wingate had no other offenses for two years.

However, the Seattle Police Department released video of the incident in January 2015 that showed Whitlatch’s claims to be false. The video indicates that Wingate was merely leaning on the club, which he claims to have used as a cane for years. The police department apologized to Wingate and worked with the city attorney’s office to get the charges against him dismissed early.

Whitlatch was reassigned to desk duty and given counseling, and the department deemed the case resolved. Later in the year, though, O’Toole was made aware of troubling racial comments that Whitlatch made on her Facebook page in the aftermath of the riots in Ferguson, Missouri. She said she was tired of “black peoples paranoia” and wrote of “chronic black racism that far exceeds any white racism in this country.”

In response, the Seattle Office of Professional Accountability launched a probe against Whitlatch, eventually finding that she had violated department policy in her arrest of Wingate. O’Toole signed off on that decision and filed the termination order Tuesday.

The police chief wrote in her decision that Whitlatch refused to take accountability for her actions in hearings on the incident.

“Considerable circumstantial evidence indicates that these deviations and your approach to the civilian were motivated by bias,” O’Toole wrote.

“Your inability to understand, even in hindsight, that your behavior was unnecessarily aggressive, an abuse of discretion, and negatively impacted the community’s confidence in this police service, offers me no pathway to confidence that your behavior will improve or change,” the decision continued. “Without this ability to learn from your mistakes, understand how you can improve and do better, and recognize your own errors, you are unable to effectively function as an officer.”

O’Toole also slammed the officer for assuming that officials mistreated her based on her race, noting that Whitlatch believed a black judge and black deputy chief dropped Wingate’s charges because she was white.

After Wingate’s arrest and during the hearings, Whitlatch denied any racial bias or misconduct.

The Seattle Police Department declined to comment further, telling The Huffington Post that Tuesday’s termination order “speaks for itself.”
