“And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.”
ChristoFascist Talibans like say Walid and Theodore Shoebat, Steven Anderson, Rick Wiles, the Westboro Baptist crew, and many others, have all used Leviticus 20:13 to condemn homosexuals to death or denial of any and all civil rights. These cherry picking, buybull thumping, ChristoFascist hypocrites always though make excuses for the death penalty punishment in the book of Leviticus for their adulterers. Oh no, they say, since Jesus came? He did away with all those nasty Levitical laws and rules. But really? The ONLY TIME these scumbag, ChristoFascist Talibans use that line of apologetic bullshit? Is when the rules they insist all others follow? Applies directly to them. LGBTS? Oh hell no, the Levitical rules still apply. A Christian on their second, third or fourth “sacred” Christian marriage, or those who have committed adultery with another person, other than their spouse while married? Which is adultery? And demands a death penalty punishment of adulterers? Why oh no, that no longer applies to us.
As long as ChristoFascist Talibans keep going after lgbts with their use of the book of Leviticus and the Bible to call for their brutal murders or the denial of their rights? Then we should start going after Christians who have violated the Levitical and Biblical rules on adultery and either demand, as ChristoFascist Taliban use Leviticus to demand death for homosexuals? The death penalty punishment for all Christian adulterers.
All Christians who are on their second, or third, or fourth “sacred” marriage? Both husband and wife should be dragged out to the city square and stoned to death. For that is what Leviticus and the bible commands to be done to adulterers. For if Christians are going to keep attacking lgbts using Leviticus? Then WE should be attacking Christians for their adulterers and demand the same things for their adulterers that they demand be done to lgbts.
These ChristoFascist Talibans should reap back all they sow, and have done unto them exactly as they want to do unto others.
They want to put lgbts to death? Then they should be put to death. They want to deny lgbts any and all rights? Then they should be denied any and all rights.
Let’s take a look at just some of these scumbag ChristoTaliban pastors and preachers of hate who demand death penalty punishments for being an lgbt and for each and every one of them? They should be dragged out of their pulpits of hate, their cult churches of hate, put on their fucking knees and have exactly the same done unto them as they want to do unto others and let them reap back all the hate and death they sow upon others.
Former Knoxville Police Detective and Pastor Grayson Fitts of the All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville Tennessee: A Knoxville pastor is under fire for calling for the deaths of homosexuals.
In early June, Det. Grayson Fritts of All Scripture Baptist Church reportedly preached on the book of Leviticus, saying, “Here’s how it should work, it shouldn’t work when we go out and we enforce the laws, because the Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God, and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT FREAKS and arrest them. Have a trial for them, and if they are convicted, then they are to be put to death … do you understand that? it’s a capital crime to be carried out by our government.”
The CBS affiliate WVLT reported Fritts continued with an attack on “Pride” month.
“All the pride parades, man, hey call the riot teams, we got a bunch of ’em, get the paddy wagon out here. We got a bunch of ’em going to jail; we got a bunch of them we’re gonna get convicted because they’ve got their pride junk on and they’re professing what they are, they’re a filthy animal,” Fritts reportedly said. “After this onslaught, where the government’s arresting them and carrying out God’s laws and they’re all dead … you think.”
Fritts, a detective with the Knoxville Police Department, accepted a buyout from his position after the remarks. He is on paid sick leave until the buyout takes effect July 19.
2. From Let’s Count the Christian Ministers who advocated death for gays
Mr. Ewing says Imam Farrokh Sekaleshfar, an advocate for killing gays, was invited to speak in Orlando. He forgets to mention Christian Pastor Kevin Swanson, who advocates killing gays. (Huckabee, Jindal, and Cruz attended his ‘Freedom 2015′ knowing this.) Or televangelist Ben Bailey of the “Gospel of Christ’ TV program preaching God commands Christians to stone gays and prevent women from teaching. Or Baptist Pastor Roger Jimenez telling his congregation the Orlando massacre was “great” and “helps society.” Or Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church agreeing 100 percent with Romero. Romero advocates the death penalty for gays. Or Steven Anderson of Tempe’s Faithful Word Baptist Church applauding the Orlando massacre and calling for the death of all gays. Or Pastor Curtis Knapp of New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, who wants the government to put gays to death. Or Jeff Smith, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Florida who equates homosexuals with serial killers, rapists, and child molesters. Or Pastor and Republican Andy Gipson in Georgia whose Facebook rants include saying gays, according to Leviticus, “are to be put to death.” Or Lake Independent Baptist Church Pastor Dennis Leatherman’s fifty-minute sermon titled ,“Homosexuality and the Bible,” where he describes his struggle not to kill gays. Want more?
So? Let’s take a look at just some of the scumbag ChristoFascist Taliban pastors mentioned in that one letter to the editor shall we?
MORE CHRISTOFASCIST TALIBAN SHITSTAIN SCUMBAG PASTORS OF HATE AND DEATH
Maryland Pastor Dennis Leatherman of the Lake Independent Baptist Church.
On Sunday, Maryland Pastor Dennis Leatherman delivered a sermon titled, “Homosexuality & the Bible,” during which he said, discussing homosexuals, “Kill them all. Right? I will be very honest with you. My flesh kind of likes that idea. But it grieves the Holy Spirit. It violates Scripture. It is wrong.”
At least this scumbag does agree that Christos should also be going after adulterers too.
Curtis Knapp New Hope Baptist Church, Seneca Kansas
“We punish pedophilia,” Pastor Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kan. “We punish incest, we punish polygamy and various things. It’s only homosexuality that is lifted out as an exemption.”
Sean Harris, Berean Baptist Church, Fayetteville, NC
In a sermon given in April 2012, Pastor Harris took that to a whole new level with his solution to the gay problem: punch gay-acting children. “Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and you crack that wrist. Man up! Give him a good punch.” Yup, that’ll teach ‘em, especially because nothing says “my son is gay” like a limp wrist.
Charles Worley, Providence Baptist Church, Maiden, NC
This ChristoFascist Taliban’s solution to lgbts is:
“Build a great, big, large fence, 150 or 100 mile long. Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals, and have that fence electrified till they can’t get out. Feed ’em. And you know what? In a few years they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce.”
Joel McDurmon, director of research for American Vision (AV), a Georgia-based Religious Right group
The Bible demands the execution of gay people, a Religious Right activist has asserted.
Joel McDurmon, director of research for American Vision (AV), a Georgia-based Religious Right group, made the claim in a recent essay on AV’s Web site.
American Vision is aligned with the Christian Reconstructionist movement, a Religious Right faction that openly seeks to replace America’s constitutional democracy with a government built around an ultra-fundamentalist reading of the Bible.
McDurmon was spurred to write the essay, titled “A Perfect Hatred,” after a situation in Uganda began attracting headlines in the American media. The Ugandan parliament is considering legislation that would apply the death penalty and other draconian punishments for homosexuality.
A number of prominent evangelicals, including the Rev. Rick Warren, have condemned the measure. But McDurmon argues that the opponents are wrong, and he condemns anyone who shirks from imposing “biblical law.”
Writes McDurmon, “The truth is, hate is an inescapable concept in every society….The problem is that in modern society, we have let the liberals and heathen define the values for us. Instead of gathering our standards of what is to be loved and what is to be ‘hated’ from God’s word, we are supposed to accept the shouts of shame from liberals – shouts which derive directly from their rejection of God’s word and replacing of God’s standards with their own value system.”
Continues McDurmon, “The evangelical mantra has always been ‘hate the sin but love the sinner,’ which is good pastoral advice to a large degree, but even this piece of folk-wisdom falls short of the biblical standard. God and His spokesmen reveal a clear role for hate of both sin (Ps. 97:10; 101:3; 119:104, 113, 128, 163; 139:21, 22) and the sinners themselves (Ps. 5:5; 11:5; 26:5; 31:6; Mal. 1:1–3; Rom. 9:13) in some circumstances.”
In McDurmon’s view, the Bible speaks clearly on homosexuality.
“God has revealed that specific sins are also civil crimes…. God also reveals specific punishments for specific civil crimes,” he writes. “He revealed that some civil crimes require restitution, a few require the death penalty. Where God says a civil crime deserves the death penalty, I propose that we keep in step with the first greatest commandment and recognize His total sovereignty in heart, soul, strength, and mind.
“Now, it just so happens that God revealed that the homosexual act is a civil crime, and it just so happens that He revealed that the homosexual act as a civil crime deserves the death penalty,” McDurmon continues.
In AV’s view, homosexuality is just one among many crimes that merit the death penalty. Christian Reconstructionists call for the death penalty for as many as 20 offenses, including adultery, homosexuality, fornication, witchcraft, incorrigible juvenile delinquency and spreading false religions.
David Berzins, Word of Truth Baptist Church, Prescott Arizona
Pastor David Berzins recently slammed a fellow pastor for not supporting Pastor Steven Anderson’s call for homosexuals to be put to death per the Bible.
Pastor Anderson also said gay people were to be put to death in 2009, per the Bible, because they recruit via rape and molestation, noted RightWingWatch.org.
Pastor Berzins, of the Word of Truth Baptist Church in Prescott, Arizona, was furious that an unidentified preacher asked to have his church removed from Pastor Anderson’s Faithful Word Baptist Church directory web site, noted RawStory.com (video below).
Pastor Berzins called the offending pastor and (pastors like him) “limp-wristed,” reports the Daily Kos, for not standing “against the homosexual agenda.”
Pastor Berzins said that he liked the offending pastor, but added, “Look, God came up with the laws of the Old Testament. They’re breathed by the Lord. And if you think that you know better on how to run a country than God has ordained, you think that your laws are better!”
Pastor Berzins also complained about Christians who lamented that the Old Testament law (Ten Commandments) was being removed from public, but don’t support the judgment against “sodomites” in the same Old Testament law.
Steven Anderson, Faithful Word Baptist Church, Tempe Arizona
An Arizona Baptist pastor has claimed that the solution to the AIDS pandemic is the execution of all homosexuals.
In an astonishing sermon preached the day before World Aids Day entitled AIDS: The Judgment of God, Rev Stephen Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, said that it was possible to achieve achieve an “AIDS-free Christmas”.
In remarks that have caused widespread outrage, Anderson said: “Turn to Leviticus 20:13 because I actually discovered the cure for AIDS. This is the cure for AIDS. Everyone is talking about ‘let’s have an AIDS free world by 2020.’ Look, we can have an AIDS free world by Christmas. OK, it wouldn’t be totally AIDS-free, but we’d be 90-something per cent AIDS-free by Christmas if we follow this.”
Reading the Leviticus passage, he said: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS,” he said. “It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”
He also describes President Obama in the sermon as a “bastard”, explaining that the expression was “not a cuss-word” but referred to the child of an unwed mother (in fact Obama’s parents were married when he was born).
Theodore Shoebat, Shoebat Ministries
Right-Wing Extremist Calls For Global ‘Inquisition’ To End ‘Fag Problem’, Kill Gays:
Former Muslims, Shoebat Ministries incites violence against public gatherings of homosexuals. Walid Shoebat runs Shoebat.com and his Theodore Shoebat is his son and Director of Communications. This goes beyond First Amendment free speech. Telling viewers that “god” wants them to harm or kill innocent people is a crime.
Scott Lively, Scott Lively Ministries
Scott Lively, ‘Kill The Gays’ Bill Supporter And Evangelist, On Trial For Crimes Against Humanity
the suit against Lively alleges that he “conspired with religious and political leaders in Uganda to whip up anti-gay hysteria with warnings that gay people would sodomize African children and corrupt their culture.” Vince Warren, executive director of the CCR, argues in a Washington Post blog that Lively calls himself the “‘father’ of the anti-gay movements“ in Uganda.
So these are just a few of these scumbag ChristoFascist Taliban demanding the brutal murders of lgbts based on Leviticus of the buybull.
Each and every one of these pastors, along with the rest of their kind? Should be dragged out of their churches of hate and death, put on their knees and executed with a bullet to the back of their skulls. Cause as far as I am concerned? These scumbags should reap back exactly as they have sown and have done unto them as they want to do unto others.
And any and ALL Christians who are adulterers? Should be rounded up and publicly executed by stoning to death as ordered in Leviticus.
Let’s look at this treasonous, dangerous psychopathic Fascist traitor to this country Marjorie Taylor Greene shall we?
Promoter of dangerous, pathological lies of QAnon
This crazy cracker bitch has promoted some of the more disgusting, dangerous lies of QAnon, including Pizzagate and Frazzledrip. Let’s look at these and see the evil this bitch brought onto innocent business owners shall we?
Here is a link to just one scumbag QAnon shitstain loser spreading the lie of QAnon Pizzagate.
This all came to mind when I was reading The Washington Post‘s account of the gentleman who showed up at a Washington D.C. pizza-and-fun palace over the weekend with his trusty shootin ‘arn, pointed it at one employee, and then apparently got off one round before he was taken away by police.(Brief historical diversion: the gentleman was white, so he was not shot dead on the spot. We continue.) It seems he was one of those citizen investigators that we’ve heard so much about.
Matt Carr, the owner of the Little Red Fox market and coffee shop, said his business started getting threats last weekend. They got 30 to 40 calls before they stopped answering calls from blocked numbers, he said. “One person said he wanted to line us up in front of a firing squad,” said Carr, who spent more than an hour in lockdown with his employees Sunday.The threats were all tied to the Comet Ping Pong accusations online, he said. “There’s some old painted-over symbol on the marquee that they claim is an international symbol of pedophilia and that there are underground tunnels…”
Tunnels, again. Maybe they lead all the way across the country to Manhattan Beach. Someone should put that on Internet so we can all find out what’s what and make ourselves more stupid in the process.
As has been made clear in a number of places, Comet Ping Pong is the central establishment in a bizarre rightwing conspiracy saga in which it is alleged that—and it’s hard even to type this without a desperate thirst for liquid Thorazine—elements of the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign, up to and including chairman John Podesta, were running a child sex-slave operation out of the back of the restaurant and, apparently, out of the secret tunnels beneath. This is generally attributed to the hacked e-mails provided to the gullible by WikiLeaks and hashtagged into eternity by enthusiasts. Disruption! Thanks, Julian.
What the hell is Pizzagate?
It all started in early November 2016, when Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s email was hacked and the messages were published by Wikileaks. One of the emails, according to The New York Times, was between Podesta and James Alefantis, the owner of D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong. The message discussed Alefantis hosting a possible fundraiser for Clinton.
Users of the website 4Chan began speculating about the links between Comet Ping Pong and the Democratic Party, according to the BBC, with one particularly vile connection burbling to the surface: the pizzeria is the headquarters of a child trafficking ring led by Clinton and Podesta.
How does this involve Comet Ping Pong?
The 120-seat restaurant opened in D.C. in 2006 years ago and, according to The New York Times, is considered a kid-friendly place, with ping-pong tables and craft rooms. It’s also played host to concerts by local musicians, including the band Fugazi.
Comet Ping Pong’s owner, James Alefantis, is an artist and D.C.-native who was a Clinton supporter but had never met her, according to the Times. Alefantis has prominent friends in the Democratic party. Tony Podesta, brother of John Podesta, frequents the restaurant.
Alefantis was also in a relationship with David Brock, the founder of the website Media Matters for America. The Times described Brock as “a provocative former right-wing journalist who became an outspoken advocate for Mrs. Clinton.”
The restaurant’s staff and customers have come under frequent assault online because of this nonsense.
As fake news stories on far-right conservative blogs began to pile up and spread online, the Facebook page and Instagram feed of Comet Ping Pong began filling up with comments to the tune of “we’re on to you.” It quickly spiraled out of control, with threatening messages pouring through. “I will kill you personally,” one message read, according to the Times.
Alefantis and his staff of 40 people received threatening phone calls and text messages. Photos of customers’ children posted online were taken and used in articles as evidence of the child-abuse ring. Many of those customers, the Times noted, hired lawyers to have the pictures removed.
As the threats mounted—including one person who showed up at the restaurant to investigate for himself—Alefantis contacted local police as well as the FBI. He also got in touch with Twitter, Facebook and Reddit in an effort to remove the posts and stories about the conspiracy theory.
None of it worked. The social media posts, texts and phone calls continued to mount.
The situation finally boiled over into real violence.
On the afternoon of Sunday, December 4 2016, 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, North Carolina, walked through the front door of Comet Ping Pong and pointed an assault rifle in the direction of an employee, according to the Associated Press. The employee fled and called police, but Welch fired his gun, possibly striking the walls, door, and a computer. No one was hurt.
Police surrounded the pizzeria, according to The Washington Post, which said Welch emerged about 45 minutes later, his hands in the air, to surrender to authorities. He told police he’d gone to the restaurant to “self-investigate” reports of the child-trafficking ring. He was carrying a Colt AR-15 rifle, a Colt .38 handgun, a shotgun and a folding knife. Police charged him with assault with a dangerous weapon, other weapons offenses and destruction of property.
Earlier, Welch allegedly drove his Buick LeSabre into a teenage pedestrian in North Carolina, according to Slate. The 13-year-old “suffered head, torso, and leg injuries, WBTV reported. Welch stayed at the scene until police arrived, WBTV added, although a witness said it appeared Welch didn’t try to avoid striking the pedestrian.
In a statement after the incident at Comet, Alefantis called out the dangers of fake news. “What happened today demonstrates that promoting false and reckless conspiracy theories comes with consequences,” he said. “I hope that those involved in fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today, and stop promoting these falsehoods right away.”
Welch wasn’t the only would-be vigilante to target Comet Pizza.
Welch, who told The Timesthat he believed that Hillary Clinton had personally murdered children, isn’t the only person to target the pizzeria in person. In 2019, Ryan Jaselskis walked into the restaurant and set a curtain on fire. Employees and a customer were able to put out the flames before the fire spread. Jaselskis, who had a history of mental illness, was sentenced to spend four years in prison in April.
The shooting didn’t stop someone close to Trump from inflaming the situation.
Shortly after the incident at Comet Ping Pong, Michael Flynn, Jr., the son of Trump’s former national security advisor Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, tweeted his support of the conspiracy theory:
The story Michael Jr. shared on Twitter suggests Welch’s actions were meant as a “false flag” and will now be leveraged to push for censorship of independent media, according to Politico.
Michael Jr. isn’t just Flynn’s son, he was his chief of staff and, according to The Washington Post, his closest adviser. But he might be taking after his dad in spreading baseless rumors. The elder Flynn, who led chants of “lock her up” at the Republican National Convention, tweeted a link to a fake news story claiming police in New York had found a link between Clinton, her staff and the child-sex ring.
So why didn’t Pizzagate go away?
Many aspects of Pizzagate were eventually folded into the broader QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that Donald Trump is secretly engineering the downfall of the deep state and its cabal of elite pedophiles. Obviously, non of that is at all true.
But Pizzagate came roaring back in 2020, when the theory, once associated primarily with older Trump supporters, found a new, younger audience on platforms like TikTok. And while the theory has spread, it’s become less overtly political, morphing to falsely accuse celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Chrissy Teigen, and brands like Wayfair.
Wait, what does Wayfair have to do with this?
In July, a Reddit user sparked a viral conspiracy theory with a post about, of all things, cabinets being sold by the online furniture retailer Wayfair. The cabinets, which all cost more than $10,000, had been given female names as their product titles on the website. Soon, the theory that Wayfair was trafficking children disguised as furniture was spreading around the internet. Wayfair refuted it by explaining that the items earned their high prices because they are industrial-grade cabinets, and that an algorithm had named the products. Still, that didn’t stop believers from doing their signature deranged deep dive into attempting to connect the company to child abuse. This content is imported from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.
New York Times reporter Sheera Frankel said in an interview that pandemic lockdown-induced boredom may be helping to fuel some of the interest in Pizzagate on TikTok. Teens she spoke to said that they’d shared conspiracy videos just because it seemed like fun.
Luckily, some platforms are moving to squash the spread of this viral mythology. Reddit banned its Pizzagate subreddit in 2016 and a QAnon group in 2018. And in July, Twitter purged thousands of QAnon associated accounts, and implemented measures to prevent the amplification of QAnon content. TikTok followed by blocking QAnon hashtags.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE, HAS BEEN PROMOTING ANOTHER PROVEN LIE OF THE REICH WING FASCISTS, HARMING INNOCENT BUSINESS OWNERS, TERRORIZING INNOCENT BUSINESS OWNERS, ALL IN HER UNMITIGATED HATE FOR ANYONE OR ANYTHING WITH DEMOCRAT ATTACHED TO THEIR NAMES.
NOW LET’S LOOK AT MORE MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE’S FASCIST, LIES THAT SHE HAS BEEN EXPOSED FOR SHALL WE?
The insurrection timeline
Defending President Donald Trump against accusations that he incited the Capitol insurrection, Greene argued: “The timeline doesn’t fit the narrative. Trump supporters could not have listened to President Trump’s speech at the WH and then been ‘incited’ by him to walk to and attack the Capitol.”
Facts First: This is just not true — even leaving aside the fact that insurrectionists near the Capitol could have listened to Trump’s speech on their phones or could have been inspired by Trump’s previous rhetoric. There was more than enough time for people to walk about a mile and a half from The Ellipse park, where Trump gave a speech that ended before 1:15 p.m. ET, to the Capitol, where rioters were still present more than three hours after Trump concluded. In fact, the FBI alleges that some insurrection participants did make this walk, including one who allegedly went from the Trump speech to her hotel and then into the Capitol.
White supremacists and the insurrection
Abortion rights group NARAL Pro-Choice America tweeted the following about the insurrection: “Anti-choice extremists, white supremacists, and violent misogynists all converged this week to attack our country. But the thing is, these groups already have a lot of overlap. What we saw was horrifying and devastating. But it wasn’t surprising.”
Greene responded that the Capitol attack was “terrible and shouldn’t have happened” — but then added that all of the people who died as a result of the insurrection were White, “so I’m not sure where your white supremacy bs is coming from.”
Facts First: According to the FBI, it is true, not “bs,” that White supremacists were involved in the insurrection. (Also, the fact that people killed at the Capitol were White obviously does not mean White supremacists could not have been among the perpetrators. Some of the people killed had been participants in the insurrection. And White supremacists sometimes kill other White people.)
The FBI alleges that Bryan Betancur, who has been charged for alleged involvement in the insurrection, is “is a self-professed White supremacist who has made statements to law enforcement officers that he is a member of several white supremacy organizations.” The FBI alleges that a confidential source says that another man who has been charged, Timothy Louis Hale-Cusanelli, is “an avowed white supremacist and Nazi sympathizer.”
A third man who has been charged, Robert Keith Packer, is alleged to be the man seen at the insurrection wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” shirt. The FBI alleges the shirt “appears to be a symbol of Nazi hate ideology.”
A fourth man who has been charged, Anthime Joseph (Tim) Gionet, is an Internet personality who is known for his role in the racist and anti-Semitic “alt-right” movement and who attended the infamous White nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.
The charges against these men were announced after Greene’s “bs” tweet, but nonetheless, there was never any basis to accuse NARAL of making up the claim that white supremacists were present at the Capitol. In addition, a variety of symbols used by white supremacists had been seen at the Capitol during the insurrection.
The publication Insider has reported that Gionet has disputed the assertion that he is a white nationalist. Packer did not respond to CNN requests for comment before his arrest. Betancur and Hale-Cusanelli did not immediately have lawyers listed in an online federal system.
Greene tweeted that “there was MASS voter fraud on a scale that should terrify every American regardless of political party.”
Facts First: This is, again, just false. There is no evidence of mass voter fraud — as Republican election officials around the country and Trump-appointed former Attorney General William Barr have acknowledged. Rather, there have been isolated instances of alleged fraud by lone voters, far too minor to have affected the outcome.
In court, even Trump’s own legal team often declined to allege mass fraud — focusing instead on complaints about law and process. But the Trump team lost case after case anyway.
The integrity of the election
We’ll address three related claims under this one heading.
Greene repeatedly called the presidential election “stolen.” She repeatedly referred to some of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral votes as “fraudulent.” And she explicitly claimed that Biden “lost” the election and Trump “won.”
Facts First: All three claims are false. Biden won the election, fairly and legally. There is no evidence to suggest otherwise. Trump’s various claims about supposed fraud and supposed election-rigging have been rejected in court and debunked at length by officials and fact checkers.
The presidential election in Georgia
Greene criticized Gabriel Sterling, a senior official in the office of Georgia’s top elections official, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. She tweeted, “You ran a Nov 3rd election that was stolen bc you idiots at the SOS mailed out millions of absentee ballots to any one and everyone while GA was an open state.”
Facts First: Georgia’s presidential election was not “stolen.” Biden won the state fair and square, as confirmed by three counts of the ballots and an audit of some voters’ signatures.
Georgia was not one of the states to send an absentee ballot to every eligible registered voter; a ballot was only sent to an eligible voter who requested one. Georgia does not require any excuse to vote absentee, but this no-excuse policy was created by state Republican leaders in 2005, not by Raffensperger himself.
The Senate elections in Georgia
Greene tweeted: “… Georgia state leaders refused to listen to Georgia tax payers. They refused to change anything after allowing @realDonaldTrump’s election to be stolen. And they refused to #StopTheSteaI with our two senate seats.”
Facts First: There was no “steal” of Georgia’s two Senate seats; Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock won fair and square in the January runoff elections. Their Republican opponents, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, have both conceded defeat.
The presidential election in Pennsylvania
Greene tweeted, “202,377 more votes cast than voters voting in Pennsylvania! This is called election fraud.”
Facts First: False again. State officials and fact checkers have repeatedly explained that the claim that Pennsylvania had more votes than registered voters is just not true; Greene was invoking an incorrect figure from a Republican state legislator who had relied on incomplete data.
The First Amendment
The day after Twitter banned Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account, Greene tweeted, “Yesterday they crushed the First Amendment. You can see what’s coming next. I vow to do everything I can to protect American’s Second Amendment rights.”
Facts First: Nobody crushed the First Amendment on January 8. Greene didn’t explicitly say she was talking about Twitter’s decision to suspend Trump’s account, but if she was, she was clearly inaccurate. The First Amendment prohibits the government from silencing citizens, but it does not require corporations, including social media companies like Twitter, to allow citizens to speak freely.
Violence in 2020
Greene tweeted, “ZERO Democrats have condemned the political violence of BLM/Antifa terrorists that lasted the entirety of 2020. Instead, each of them fanned the flames of hate.”
Facts First: Numerous Democrats — including Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and senior members of the party’s congressional caucus — condemned rioting and looting last year while also supporting peaceful Black Lives Matter protests against racism and police brutality.
Republicans are entitled to argue that Democrats should have issued such condemnations more forcefully or frequently, or that they should have been more explicit in identifying the perpetrators, but it’s just inaccurate to say or suggest they didn’t issue the condemnations at all.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREEN MY MESSAGE TO YOUR FASCIST PUNK LYING ASS IS?
One of these days, you Fascist, white supremacist, racist, bigoted sewer cunt who crawled out of the bottom of a well used outhouse after your generational inbred kunt of a mommy shit you out of her blown out asshole? YOU WILL REAP BACK ALL THE HATE, ALL THE BIGOTRY AND ALL THE EVIL LIES YOU HAVE SOWN, YOU FASCIST NAZI KUNT KRACKER AND YOU WILL HAVE DONE UNTO YOU EXACTLY AS YOU HAVE DONE UNTO OTHERS.
HOPEFULLY SOME KRAZY KUNT KRACKER IS GOING TO WALK RIGHT UP TO YOU ONE DAY AND BLOW YOUR FUCKING KRISTOKRACKER KUNT AWAY CAUSE YOU WOULD FUCKING DESERVE IT YOU BITCH.
DO THE WORLD A FAVOR MARJORIE TAYLOR GREEN, TAKE YOUR FUCKING GUN, SHOVE IT UP YOUR FUCKING FASCIST, NAZI, KRISTOKUNT SEWER HOLE ASSHOLE, PULL THE TRIGGER AND BLOW YOUR FUCKING BRAINS OUT.
Have you been searching for that special someone but want to make sure that person’s heart is full of utter contempt for LGBTQ people?
Well, you’re in luck.
New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist preacher Roger Jimenez just launched a dating website for fellow bigots. Jimenez is perhaps most famous for responding to the Pulse nightclub massacre (in which nearly 50 people were murdered) by telling his congregation that the real tragedy was “that more of them didn’t die.” He also longs for the government to round up all the gay people, “put them up against a firing wall, put a firing squad in front of them, and blow their brains out.”
That’s the guy who wants to play matchmaker. He just launched NewIFBSingles.com through his Verity Baptist Church ministry, and he says in the promo below that “it’s not a dating site” but rather “a place for you to be able to connect with other singles.”
Jimenez says he (or his team) will personally approve all profiles on the site. If you say you attend a certain church, they’ll contact your pastor. If you list your profession, they’re going to check if it’s a job that can support a family.
My favorite part? If you actually meet someone through the site, you won’t be able to chat with them in private. You can only chat through a public forum that will be monitored by the ministry.
And here’s the most NIFB aspect of the whole website…
As for education level, hobbies, personality traits, or anything else that might make you unique, they don’t bother asking about it because, of course, it doesn’t matter. (And you can bet that if they ever ask about your sexual preferences, the only multiple choice option will be “missionary.”) In this cult, they just want bodies who can produce more bodies.
Good luck to any couple that meets through here. You’re going to need it.
Not only is America a Christian country, but the Constitution has been perverted by infidels and atheists, according to MAGA cultist and Trump sycophant Pastor Robert Jeffress.
He made the comments on his “Pathway to Victory” broadcast during a series of episodes earlier this month promoting the Christian Nation myth. In the excerpt below, he was complaining about Supreme Court decisions that removed mandatory Bible readings from public schools.
And here’s the question: What has changed? What has changed? In these 150 years, has the Constitution changed and nobody told us? Is that what happened? Of course not. What has happened is we have allowed the secularists, the humanists, the atheists, the infidels, to pervert our Constitution into something our Founding Fathers never intended. And it is time for Americans to stand up and say ‘Enough! We’re not going to allow this in our Christian country anymore.’ It is time to put an end to this.
It’s been said before, but conservative Christians like Jeffress always mistake religious equality for persecution because they’re so used to receiving special treatment.
It’s time to once again reiterate that the Bible says far more about welcoming the immigrant and serving the poor and marginalized than anything about abortion or LGBTQ issues — which Jeffress also brought up elsewhere in his episodes. (Interestingly enough, helping the poor would also result in fewer abortions, a fact Jeffress never seems to care about.)
Pretending we live in a Christian Nation doesn’t make it true. Lying about the past won’t change reality either. The fact remains if our government treated atheism or Islam the way we’ve historically treated Christianity, Jeffress would never stop whining about it.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on another spike in church vandalism:
“The Summer of Love,” as the clueless mayor of Seattle put it, has turned into “The Summer of Hate.” Blood in the streets of urban America is a staple on weekends, and the destruction of historic statues—including Catholic ones—is spiking. While the carnage is the work of reckless thugs and left-wing activists, the tone is set by the elites: many either support these assaults or are too spineless to do anything about them.
The police across the nation are acting rationally by not extending themselves. If they do their job as expected, they risk being sued, risking sanctions that put their retirement benefits in jeopardy. The result is mayhem.
A total of 18 people were shot in New York City from mid-day Saturday through Sunday night (a tropical storm kept the killers indoors on Friday). The previous weekend, 64 were shot and 10 were killed.
In Chicago this past weekend, 64 were shot and 13 were killed. Over the previous weekend, 70 were wounded and 17 were murdered.
Other cities seeing a sharp increase in shooting and killings include Philadelphia (a 6-year-old was shot in the chest on July 5); Minneapolis (a pregnant woman was shot this past weekend); and Cleveland (an 8-year-old girl was shot over the 4th of July weekend).
Denver and Louisville have seen the murder rate increase by 40% this year as compared to last year during the same time period. On the 4th of July itself, there was a spate of killings. In Atlanta an 8-year-old girl was murdered; in Washington D.C. an 11-year-old was killed; and in San Francisco and St. Louis, a 6-year-old and 4-year-old were murdered.
When young people aren’t being killed, Catholic property is being destroyed.
Over this past weekend, a statue of Our Blessed Mother was set on fire in Boston and another statue of the Virgin Mary was vandalized in Queens, New York. In Ocala, Florida a man crashed his minivan into a Catholic church while parishioners gathered for Mass; he then poured gasoline in the church’s foyer and set the church ablaze.
San Gabriel Mission Church in Los Angeles County was set on fire on July 11, destroying parts of the 249-year-old iconic structure. It was founded by Saint Junípero Serra in 1771, the priest who was a staunch defender of the rights of Indians (statues of Serra have been destroyed in many towns and cities throughout California).
Vandals were charged with a hate crime after they partially disfigured Mission San Jose, a church in Fremont, California. Swastikas and anti-Catholic comments were recently found on the graves of several Dominican friars on the campus of Providence College.
Sacred Heart Catholic school in Gallup, New Mexico was broken into last week and a statue of Jesus was vandalized. A statue outside St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Wasco, California was smashed last month. Church buildings were also attacked in Minnesota, New York, Kentucky, and Colorado.
This astonishing drop in respect for persons and property is the direct result of a culture turned against itself. The grievance culture is literally eating away at the social fabric. Charges of racism are everywhere, the effect of which is to dilute serious expressions of it. Claiming victim status is chic and pointing fingers is the latest fad.
This kind of cultural madness will continue until and unless political and cultural leaders insist on respect for human life and the heritage of Western civilization. Unfortunately, “The Summer of Hate” has a long way to go.
But apparently Bill “Pig Face” Donohue is ok with these crimes of hate and murder perpetrated by those who call themselves Christians and Trumpsters huh?
Trumpturd Terrorists: Vehicle strikes multiple protesters in Washington, 2 people sent to hospital
After a Latino gas station attendant in Gainesville, Florida, was suddenly punched in the head by a white man, the victim could be heard on surveillance camera recounting the attacker’s own words: “He said, ‘This is for Trump.'” Charges were filed but the victim stopped pursuing them.
When police questioned a Washington state man about his threats to kill a local Syrian-born man, the suspect told police he wanted the victim to “get out of my country,” adding, “That’s why I like Trump.”
Reviewing police reports and court records, ABC News found that in at least 12 cases perpetrators hailed Trump in the midst or immediate aftermath of physically assaulting innocent victims. In another 18 cases, perpetrators cheered or defended Trump while taunting or threatening others. And in another 10 cases, Trump and his rhetoric were cited in court to explain a defendant’s violent or threatening behavior.
When three Kansas men were on trial for plotting to bomb a largely-Muslim apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, one of their lawyers told the jury that the men “were concerned about what now-President Trump had to say about the concept of Islamic terrorism.” Another lawyer insisted Trump had become “the voice of a lost and ignored white, working-class set of voters,” and Trump’s rhetoric meant someone “who would often be at a 7 during a normal day, might ‘go to 11.'”
Thirteen cases identified by ABC News involved violent or threatening acts perpetrated in defiance of Trump, with many of them targeting Trump’s allies in Congress. But the vast majority of the cases – 41 of the 54 – reflect someone echoing presidential rhetoric, not protesting it.
ABC News could not find a single criminal case filed in federal or state court where an act of violence or threat was made in the name of President Barack Obama or President George W. Bush.
The 54 cases identified by ABC News are remarkable in that a link to the president is captured in court documents and police statements, under the penalty of perjury or contempt. These links are not speculative – they are documented in official records. And in the majority of cases identified by ABC News, it was perpetrators themselves who invoked the president in connection with their case, not anyone else.
The perpetrators and suspects identified in the 54 cases are mostly white men – as young as teenagers and as old as 75 – while the victims largely represent an array of minority groups – African-Americans, Latinos, Muslims and gay men.
Federal law enforcement authorities have privately told ABC News they worry that – although Trump has offered public denunciations of violence – his statements have been inconsistent and Trump’s style could inspire violence-prone individuals to take action against minorities or others they perceive to be against the president’s agenda.
“Any public figure could have the effect of inspiring people,” FBI Director Chris Wray told a Senate panel last year. “But remember that the people who commit hate fueled violence are not logical, rational people.”
Now? Here are the psycho Trumpturd Terrorists and Haters Crimes:
Aug. 19, 2015: In Boston, after he and his brother beat a sleeping homeless man of Mexican descent with a metal pole, Steven Leader, 30, told police “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported.” The victim, however, was not in the United States illegally. The brothers, who are white, ultimately pleaded guilty to several assault-related charges and were each sentenced to at least two years in prison.
Dec. 5, 2015: After Penn State University student Nicholas Tavella, 19, was charged with “ethnic intimidation” and other crimes for threatening to “put a bullet” in a young Indian man on campus, his attorney argued in court that Tavella was just motivated by “a love of country,” not “hate.” “Donald Trump is running for President of the United States saying that, ‘We’ve got to check people out more closely,'” Tavella’s attorney argued in his defense. Tavella, who is white, ultimately pleaded guilty to ethnic intimidation and was sentenced to up to two years in prison.
April 28, 2016: When FBI agents arrested 61-year-old John Martin Roos in White City, Oregon, for threatening federal officials, including then-President Barack Obama, they found several pipe bombs and guns in his home. In the three months before his arrest, Roos posted at least 34 messages to Twitter about Trump, repeatedly threatening African Americans, Muslims, Mexican immigrants and the “liberal media,” and in court documents, prosecutors noted that the avowed Trump supporter posted this threatening message to Facebook a month earlier: “The establishment is trying to steal the election from Trump. … Obama is already on a kill list … Your [name] can be there too.” Roos, who is white, has since pleaded guilty to possessing an unregistered explosive device and posting internet threats against federal officials. He was sentenced to more than five years in prison.
June 3, 2016: After 54-year-old Henry Slapnik attacked his African-American neighbors with a knife in Cleveland, he told police “Donald Trump will fix them because they are scared of Donald Trump,” according to police reports. Slapnik, who is white, ultimately pleaded guilty to “ethnic intimidation” and other charges. It’s unclear what sentence he received.
Aug. 16, 2016: In Olympia, Washington, 32-year-old Daniel Rowe attacked a white woman and a black man with a knife after seeing them kiss on a popular street. When police arrived on the scene, Rowe professed to being “a white supremacist” and said “he planned on heading down to the next Donald Trump rally and stomping out more of the Black Lives Matter group,” according to court documents filed in the case. Rowe, who is white, ultimately pleaded guilty to charges of assault and malicious harassment, and he was sentenced to more than four years in prison.
Sept. 1, 2016: The then-chief of the Bordentown, New Jersey, police department, Frank Nucera, allegedly assaulted an African American teenager who was handcuffed. Federal prosecutors said the attack was part of Nucera’s “intense racial animus,” noting in federal court that “within hours” of the assault, Nucera was secretly recorded saying “Donald Trump is the last hope for white people.” The 60-year-old Nucera, who is white, was indicted by a federal grand jury on three charges, including committing a federal hate crime and lying to the FBI about the alleged assault. He was convicted of lying to the FBI, but a jury deadlocked on the other charges, so Nucera is now awaiting a second trial. He has pleaded not guilty.
September 2016: After 40-year-old Mark Feigin of Los Angeles was arrested for posting anti-Muslim and allegedly threatening statements to a mosque’s Facebook page, his attorney argued in court that the comments were protected by the First Amendment because Feigin was “using similar language and expressing similar views” to “campaign statements from then-candidate Donald Trump.” Noting that his client “supported Donald Trump,” attorney Caleb Mason added that “Mr. Feigin’s comments were directed toward a pressing issue of public concern that was a central theme of the Trump campaign and the 2016 election generally: the Islamic roots of many international and U.S. terrorist acts.” Feigin, who is white, ultimately pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of sending harassing communications electronically. He was sentenced to probation.
Oct. 10, 2016: Police in Albany, New York, arrested 55-year-old Todd Warnken for threatening an African-American woman at a local grocery store “because of her race,” according to a police report. Warnken allegedly told the victim, “Trump is going to win, and if you don’t like it I’m gonna beat your ass you n—-r,” the police report said. He ultimately pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in the case and completed a local “restorative justice program,” allowing the charges against him to be dismissed, according to the district attorney’s office.
Oct. 13, 2016: After the FBI arrested three white Kansas men for plotting to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, where many Somali immigrants lived, one of the men’s attorneys insisted to a federal judge that the plot was “self-defensive” because the three men believed “that if Donald Trump won the election, President Obama would not recognize the validity of those results, that he would declare martial law, and that at that point militias all over the country would have to step in.” Then, after a federal grand jury convicted 47-year-old Patrick Stein and the two other men of conspiracy-related charges, Stein’s attorney argued for a lighter sentence based on “the backdrop” of Stein’s actions: Trump had become “the voice of a lost and ignored white, working-class set of voters” like Stein, and the “climate” at the time could propel someone like Stein to “go to 11,” attorney Jim Pratt said in court. Stein and his two accomplices were each sentenced to at least 25 years in prison.
Nov. 3, 2016: In Tampa, Florida, David Howard threatened to burn down the house next to his “simply because” it was being purchased by a Muslim family, according to the Justice Department. He later said under oath that while he harbored a years-long dislike for Muslims, the circumstances around the home sale were “the match that lit the wick.” He cited Trump’s warnings about immigrants from majority-Muslim countries. “[With] the fact that the president wants these six countries vetted, everybody vetted before they come over, there’s a concern about Muslims,” Howard said. Howard, who is white, ultimately pleaded guilty to a federal civil rights violation, and the 59-year-old was sentenced to eight months in prison.
Nov. 10, 2016: A 23-year-old man from High Springs, Florida, allegedly assaulted an unsuspecting Hispanic man who was cleaning a parking lot outside of a local food store. “[H]e was suddenly struck in the back of the head,” a police report said of the victim. “[The victim] asked the suspect why he hit him, to which the suspect replied, ‘This is for Donald Trump.’ The suspect then grabbed [the victim] by the jacket and proceeded to strike him several more times,” according to the report. Surveillance video of the incident “completely corroborated [the victim’s] account of events,” police said. The suspect was arrested on battery charges, but the case was dropped after the victim decided not to pursue the matter, police said. Efforts by ABC News to reach the victim for further explanation were not successful.
Nov. 12, 2016: In Grand Rapids, Michigan, while attacking a cab driver from East Africa, 23-year-old Jacob Holtzlander shouted racial epithets and repeatedly yelled the word, “Trump,” according to law enforcement records. Holtzlander, who is white, ultimately pleaded guilty to a charge of ethnic intimidation, and he was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
Nov. 16, 2016: Police in San Antonio, Texas, arrested 32-year-old Dusty Paul Lacombe after he and a companion assaulted a black man at a convenience store. According to a police report, Lacombe “stepped out of a vehicle and walked to the [victim] and stated he was a Trump supporter and swung at him several times.” The victim “was punched in the face several times,” the police report said. When police arrived, Lacombe – who “smelled strongly of alcohol” – “stated something about Trump and admitted to fighting with [the victim],” the police report noted. Lacombe was charged with misdemeanor assault and ultimately received “deferred adjudication,” which is akin to probation. Lacombe ultimately pleaded “no contest” to the charge and was granted “deferred adjudication” with a $450 fine.
Jan. 25, 2017: At JFK International Airport in New York, a female Delta employee, wearing a hijab in accordance with her Muslim faith, was “physically and verbally” attacked by 57-year-old Robin Rhodes of Worcester, Mass., “for no apparent reason,” prosecutors said at the time. When the victim asked Brown what she did to him, he replied: “You did nothing, but … [Expletive] Islam. [Expletive] ISIS. Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you.” Rhodes ultimately pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of “menacing,” and he was sentenced to probation.
Feb. 19, 2017: After 35-year-old Gerald Wallace called a mosque in Miami Gardens, Florida, and threatened to “shoot all y’all,” he told the FBI and police that he made the call because he “got angry” from a local TV news report about a terrorist act. At a rally in Florida the day before, Trump falsely claimed that Muslim refugees had just launched a terrorist attack in Sweden.
Wallace’s attorney, Katie Carmon, later tried to convince a federal judge that the threat to kill worshippers could be “protected speech” due to the “very distinctly political climate” at the time. “There are courts considering President Trump’s travel ban … and the president himself has made some very pointed statements about what he thinks about people of this descent,” Carmon argued in court.
Feb. 23, 2017: Kevin Seymour and his partner Kevin price were riding their bicycles in Key West, Florida, when a man on a moped, 30-year-old Brandon Davis of North Carolina, hurled anti-gay slurs at them and “intentionally” ran into Seymour’s bike, shouting, “You live in Trump country now,” according to police reports and Davis’ attorney. Davis ultimately pleaded guilty to a charge of battery evidencing prejudice, but in court, he expressed remorse and was sentenced to four years of probation.
May 3, 2017: In South Padre Island, Texas, 35-year-old Alexander Jennes Downing of Waterford, Connecticut, was captured on cellphone video taunting and aggressively approaching a Muslim family, repeatedly shouting, “Donald Trump will stop you!” and other Trump-related remarks. Police arrested downing, of Waterford, Connecticut, for public intoxication. It’s unclear what came of the charge.
May 23, 2017: George Jarjour and his brother, Sam Jarjour, were getting gas at a station in Bellevue, Washington, when 56-year-old Kenneth Sjarpe started yelling at them to “go back to your country,” according to a police report. Sjarpe then drove his truck toward the brothers, rolled down his window, and declared, “F–k you, you Muslims,” and “I’ll f—ing kill you,” the police report stated. When police officers interviewed Sjarpe the next day, according to the report, he “became animated and his voice got louder as he started talking about how he hated those people… [particularly] Iranians, Indians and Middle Easterners.” And, the report recounted, “He said he supports Trump in keeping them out.” A week later, Sjarpe threatened another man at a local business, yelling, “I hate foreigners,” according to a police report. He was arrested days later. Sjarpe ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of malicious harassment and was sentenced to six months behind bars.
Oct. 22, 2017: A 44-year-old California man threatened to kill Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., for her frequent criticism of Trump and her promise to “take out” the president. Anthony Scott Lloyd left a voicemail at the congresswoman’s Washington office, declaring: “If you continue to make threats towards the president, you’re going to wind up dead, Maxine. Cause we’ll kill you.” After pleading guilty to one count of threatening a U.S. official, Lloyd asked the judge for leniency, saying he suffered from addiction-inducing mental illness and became “far too immersed in listening to polarizing political commentators and engaging in heated political debates online.” His lawyer put it this way to the judge: “Mr. Lloyd was a voracious consumer of political news online, on television and on radio … [that are] commonly viewed as ‘right wing,’ unconditionally supportive of President Trump, and fiercely critical of anyone who opposed President Trump’s policies.” The judge sentenced Lloyd to six months of house arrest and three years of probation.
Feb. 21, 2018: A federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., indicted a former U.S. diplomat – William Patrick Syring, 60, of Arlington, Virginia – on several counts for threatening employees of the Arab American Institute. He had previously served nearly a year in prison for threats he made in emails and voicemails to the same organization in 2006, but soon after serving his time he began emailing the organization again. In January 2017, a week after Trump was inaugurated, Syring sent one email saying: “It’s time for ethnic cleansing of Arabs in America. Elections have consequences. President Trump will cleanse America of [AAI President James] Zogby … and all Arab American terrorists.” Within months, he began sending particularly “charged” rhetoric that constituted “a true threat” – and emails like the one from January 2017 reflect the type of language that was “part and parcel of” his threats, prosecutors said in court documents. In May 2019, a federal jury convicted Syring on all 14 counts against him, including seven hate-crime charges and seven interstate-threat charges. He was sentenced to five years in prison.
June 8, 2018: Federal authorities arrested Nicholas Bukoski of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, for threatening to kill Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-California. “You wouldn’t want to be caught off guard when I use my second amendment protected firearms to rid the world of you,” Bukowski wrote to Sanders via Instagram on March, 24, 2018. Two minutes later, he wrote to Harris saying he will “make sure you and your radical lefty friends never get back in power … because you won’t make it to see that day.” At a mental treatment facility shortly after his arrest, he said, “He was watching the news and social media, which made him want to send the threats. He stated that he was frustrated with liberals and he is very supportive of the current president,” court documents signed by Bukoski recount. Other court documents describe Bukoski’s criminal past unrelated to politics, including a series of arsons he committed in 2017 and early 2018 and an armed robbery he committed in January 2018. In the most recent case involving threats to lawmakers, he ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of transmitting interstate threats and was sentenced to six months in prison.
August 2018: After the Boston Globe called on news outlets around the country to resist what it called “Trump’s assault on journalism,” the Boston Globe received more than a dozen threatening phone calls. “You are the enemy of the people,” the alleged caller, 68-year-old Robert Chain of Encino, California, told a Boston Globe employee on Aug. 22. “As long as you keep attacking the President, the duly elected President of the United States … I will continue to threat[en], harass, and annoy the Boston Globe.” A week later, authorities arrested Chain on threat-related charges. After a hearing in his case, he told reporters, “America was saved when Donald J. Trump was elected president.” Chain has pleaded guilty to seven threat-related charges, and he is awaiting sentencing.
Oct. 4, 2018: The Polk County Sheriff’s Office in Florida arrested 53-year-old James Patrick of Winter Haven, Florida, for allegedly threatening “to kill Democratic office holders, members of their families and members of both local and federal law enforcement agencies,” according to a police report. In messages posted online, Patrick detailed a “plan” for his attacks, which he said he would launch if then-nominee Brett Kavanaugh was not confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, the police report said. Seeking Patrick’s release from jail after his arrest, Patrick’s attorney, Terri Stewart, told a judge that her client’s “rantings” were akin to comments from “a certain high-ranking official” — Trump. The president had “threatened the North Korean people — to blow them all up. It was on Twitter,” Stewart said, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Patrick has been charged with making a written threat to kill or injure, and he has pleaded not guilty. His trial is pending.
Late October 2018: Over the course of a week, Florida man Cesar Sayoc allegedly mailed at least 15 potential bombs to prominent critics of Trump and members of the media. Sayoc had been living in a van plastered with pro-Trump stickers, and he had posted several pro-Trump messages on social media. Federal prosecutors have accused him of “domestic terrorism,” and Sayoc has since pleaded guilty to 65 counts, including use of a weapon of mass destruction. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison. “We believe the president’s rhetoric contributed to Mr. Sayoc’s behavior,” Sayoc’s attorney told the judge at sentencing.
Oct. 21, 2018: While Bruce M. Alexander of Tampa, Florida, was flying on a Southwest Airlines flight from Houston, Texas, to Albuquerque, New Mexico, he assaulted a woman by “reaching around the seat” in front of him and “offensively touching” her, he acknowledged in court documents. When federal authorities then arrested him, he “stated that the President of the United States says it’s ok to grab women by their private parts,” an FBI agent wrote in court documents. Alexander ultimately pleaded guilty to a federal misdemeanor count of simple assault and was sentenced to two days behind bars.
Dec. 4, 2018: Michael Brogan, 51, of Brooklyn, New York, left a voicemail at an unidentified U.S. Senator’s office in Washington insisting, “I’m going to put a bullet in ya. … You and your constant lambasting of President Trump. Oh, reproductive rights, reproductive rights.” He later told an FBI agent that before leaving the voicemail he became “very angry” by “an internet video of the Senator, including the Senator’s criticism of the President of the United States as well as the Senator’s views on reproductive rights.” “The threats were made to discourage the Senator from criticizing the President,” the Justice Department said in a later press release. Brogan has since pleaded guilty to one count of threatening a U.S. official, and he is awaiting sentencing.
Jan. 17, 2019: Stephen Taubert of Syracuse, New York, was arrested by the U.S. Capitol Police for threatening to kill Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and for threatening to “hang” former President Barack Obama. Taubert used “overtly bigoted, hateful language” in his threats, according to federal prosecutors. On July 20, 2018, Taubert called the congresswoman’s Los Angeles office to say he would find her at public events and kill her and her entire staff. In a letter to the judge just days before Taubert’s trial began, his defense attorney, Courtenay McKeon, noted: “During that time period, Congresswoman Waters was embroiled in a public feud with the Trump administration. … On June 25, 2018, in response to Congresswoman Waters’ public statements, President Trump tweeted: ‘Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has … just called for harm to supporters … of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!'” As McKeon insisted to the judge: “This context is relevant to the case.” A federal jury ultimately convicted Taubert on three federal charges, including retaliating against a federal official and making a threat over state lines. He was sentenced to nearly four years in prison.
Jan. 22, 2019: David Boileau of Holiday, Florida, was arrested by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office for allegedly burglarizing an Iraqi family’s home and “going through” their mailbox, according to a police report. After officers arrived at the home, Boileau “made several statements of his dislike for people of Middle Eastern descent,” the report said. “He also stated if he doesn’t get rid of them, Trump will handle it.” The police report noted that a day before, Boileau threw screws at a vehicle outside the family’s house. On that day, Boileau allegedly told police, “We’ll get rid of them one way or another.” Boileau, 58, has since pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of trespassing, and he was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
Feb. 15, 2019: The FBI in Maryland arrested a Marine veteran and U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant, Christopher Paul Hasson, who they said was stockpiling weapons and “espoused” racist and anti-immigrant views for years as he sought to “murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.” In court documents, prosecutors said the 49-year-old “domestic terrorist” compiled a “hit list” of prominent Democrats. Two months later, while seeking Hasson’s release from jail before trial, his public defender, Elizabeth Oyer, told a federal judge: “This looks like the sort of list that our commander-in-chief might have compiled while watching Fox News in the morning. … Is it legitimately frustrating that offensive language and ideology has now become part of our national vocabulary? Yes, it is very frustrating. But … it is hard to differentiate it from the random musings of someone like Donald Trump who uses similar epithets in his everyday language and tweets.” Hasson ultimately pleaded guilty to federal weapons-related charges, and he was sentenced to more than 13 years in federal prison.
March 16, 2019: Anthony Comello, 24, of Staten Island, New York, was taken into custody for allegedly killing Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali, the reputed head of the infamous Gambino crime family. It marked the first mob boss murder in New York in 30 years, law enforcement officials told ABC News the murder may have stemmed from Comello’s romantic relationship with a Cali family member. Court documents since filed in state court by Comello’s defense attorney, Robert Gottlieb, said Comello suffers from mental defect and was a believer in the “conspiratorial fringe right-wing political group” QAnon. In addition, Gottlieb wrote: “Beginning with the election of President Trump in November 2016, Anthony Comello’s family began to notice changes to his personality. … Mr. Comello became certain that he was enjoying the protection of President Trump himself, and that he had the president’s full support. Mr. Comello grew to believe that several well-known politicians and celebrities were actually members of the Deep State, and were actively trying to bring about the destruction of America.” Comello has been charged with one count of murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. His trial is pending, and he has pleaded not guilty.
April 5, 2019: The FBI arrested a 55-year-old man from upstate New York for allegedly threatening to kill Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., one of the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress. She is an outspoken critic of Trump, and Trump has frequently launched public attacks against her and three other female lawmakers of color. Two weeks before his arrest, Patrick Carlineo Jr. allegedly called Omar’s office in Washington labeling the congresswoman a “terrorist” and declaring: “I’ll put a bullet in her f—-ing skull.” When an FBI agent then traced the call to Carlineo and interviewed him, Carlineo “stated that he was a patriot, that he loves the President, and that he hates radical Muslims in our government,” according to the FBI agent’s summary of the interview. Federal prosecutors charged Carlineo with threatening to assault and murder a United States official. He has since pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to one year in prison.
April 18, 2019: The FBI arrested John Joseph Kless of Tamarac, Florida, for calling the Washington offices of three prominent Democrats and threatening to kill each of them. At his home, authorities found a loaded handgun in a backpack, an AR-15 rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. In later pleading guilty to one charge of transmitting threats over state lines, Kless admitted that in a threatening voicemail targeting Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., he stated: “You won’t f—ing tell Americans what to say, and you definitely don’t tell our president, Donald Trump, what to say.” Tlaib, a vocal critic of Trump, was scheduled to speak in Florida four days later. Kless was awaiting sentencing. In a letter to the federal judge, he said he “made a very big mistake,” never meant to hurt anyone, and “was way out of line with my language and attitude.” Kless was sentenced to one year behind bars.
April 24, 2019: The FBI arrested 30-year-old Matthew Haviland of North Kingstown, Rhode Island, for allegedly sending a series of violent and threatening emails to a college professor in Massachusetts who publicly expressed support for abortion rights and strongly criticized Trump. In one of 28 emails sent to the professor on March 10, 2019, Haviland allegedly called the professor “pure evil” and said “all Democrats must be eradicated,” insisting the country now has “a president who’s taking our country in a place of more freedom rather than less.” In another email the same day, Haviland allegedly wrote the professor: “I will rip every limb from your body and … I will kill every member of your family.” According to court documents, Haviland’s longtime friend later told the FBI that “within the last year, Haviland’s views regarding abortion and politics have become more extreme … at least in part because of the way the news media portrays President Trump.” Haviland has since pleaded guilty to charges of cyberstalking and transmitting a threat in interstate commerce. He is awaiting sentencing.
June 5, 2019: The FBI arrested a Utah man for allegedly calling the U.S. Capitol more than 2,000 times over several months and threatening to kill Democratic lawmakers, whom he said were “trying to destroy Trump’s presidency.” “I am going to take up my second amendment right, and shoot you liberals in the head,” 54-year-old Scott Brian Haven allegedly stated in one of the calls on Oct. 18, 2018, according to charging documents. When an FBI agent later interviewed Haven, he “explained the phone calls were made during periods of frustration with the way Democrats were treating President Trump,” the charging documents said. The FBI visit, however, didn’t stop Haven from making more threats, including: On March 21, 2019, he called an unidentified U.S. senator’s office to say that if Democrats refer to Trump as Hitler again he will shoot them, and two days later he called an unidentified congressman’s office to say he “was going to take [the congressman] out … because he is trying to remove a duly elected President.” A federal grand jury has since charged Haven with one count of transmitting a threat over state lines. Haven has since pleaded guilty to one count of transmitting a threat over state lines. He was sentenced to time served.
Aug. 3, 2019: A gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, killing 22 people and injuring 24 others. The FBI labeled the massacre an act of “domestic terrorism,” and police determined that the alleged shooter, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, posted a lengthy anti-immigrant diatribe online before the attack. “We attribute that manifesto directly to him,” according to El Paso police chief Greg Allen. Describing the coming assault as “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas,” the screed’s writer said “the media” would “blame Trump’s rhetoric” for the attack but insisted his anti-immigrant views “predate Trump” — an apparent acknowledgement that at least some of his views align with some of Trump’s public statements. The writer began his online essay by stating that he generally “support[s]” the previous writings of the man who killed 51 Muslim worshippers in New Zealand earlier this year. In that case, the shooter in New Zealand said he absolutely did not support Trump as “a policy maker and leader” — but “[a]s a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure.” Crusius has been charged with capital murder by the state of Texas.
Aug. 16, 2019: The FBI arrested Eric Lin, 35, of Clarksburg, Maryland, for sending threatening and hate-filled messages over Facebook vowing to kill a Miami-area woman and “all Hispanics in Miami and other places,” as the Justice Department described it. Over two months, the woman received 150 pages’ worth of messages from Lin, the FBI said. In June 2019, Lin allegedly wrote: “In 3 short years your entire Race your entire culture will perish only then after I kill your [epithet] family will I permit you to Die by Hanging on Metal Wire.” A month later, on July 19, 2019, he allegedly wrote: “I Thank God everday President Donald John Trump is President and that he will launch a Racial War and Crusade to keep the n—-rs, S—s, and Muslims and any dangerous non-White or Ethnically or Culturally Foreign group ‘In Line.’” On his Facebook account, Lin says he “Studied at Trump University,” and he repeatedly praises Trump for, among other things, “fomenting racial hatred” and “Making Racism Ok Again.” At the same time, a few of his posts seem to praise Democrats and minorities. In January, Lin pleaded guilty to one count of transmitting a threatening communication. He has yet to be sentenced.
Oct. 25, 2019: The FBI arrested Jan Peter Meister of Tucson, Arizona, for threatening to kill House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, D-California. Three weeks earlier, he left a voicemail at Schiff’s office in Washington, D.C, promising to “blow your brains out.” According to court documents filed in the case, Meister told FBI agents that “he strongly dislikes the Democrats, and feels they are to blame for the country’s political issues.” In other court documents, Meister’s attorney, Bradley Roach, noted that the charge his client ultimately accepted “involves threats of injury of death against a political figure who figures very prominently in the ongoing impeachment of President Trump.” Meister has pleaded guilty to one count of threatening a U.S. official. A plea agreement with prosecutors calls for Meister to be sentenced to time already served.
Nov. 1, 2019: Clifton Blackwell, 61, of Milwaukee was arrested by local police after allegedly throwing acid on a Peruvian-American’s face and accusing him of being inside the United States illegally. Before attacking the victim outside of a Mexican restaurant, Blackwell allegedly asked the victim “Why you invade my country?” and “Why don’t you respect my laws?” The attack was captured on video by surveillance cameras, and the victim suffered second-degree burns on his face and neck. When police then searched Blackwell’s home, they found gun parts and “three letters addressed to President Donald Trump,” a police report noted. And when police interviewed an employee at a grocery store frequented by Blackwell, the employee told police that Blackwell “many times talked about his political support for President Trump,” according to a police report. “She stated she was even warned by the security guard James to not talk about political issued when [Blackwell] is in the store because of how he acts.” Blackwell was charged with first-degree reckless injury during a hate crime. He pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.
Feb. 19, 2020: The FBI arrested Salvatore Lippa II, 57, of upstate New York for allegedly threatening to kill Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, the top Democrat in the Senate, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. In late January, he left a voicemail at Schiff’s office in Washington, D.C., calling Schiff a “scumbag” and threatening to “put a bullet in your [expletive] forehead,” according to charging documents. Two weeks later, he allegedly left a voicemail at Schumer’s office in Albany, New York, saying “somebody wants to assassinate you.” When federal authorities confronted Lippa, he “admitted that he made the threatening calls because he was upset about the impeachment proceedings” targeting Trump. Lippa has been charged with threatening to kill a U.S. official and is currently engaged in plea negotiations with the government, according to court records.

White nationalist group posing as antifa called for violence on Twitter A Twitter account claiming to belong to a national “antifa” organization and pushing violent rhetoric related to ongoing protests has been linked to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, according to a Twitter spokesperson. The spokesperson said the account violated the company’s platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts. Twitter suspended the account after a tweet that incited violence.
Christian Conspiracist: Black Lives Matter and Antifa Leaders Must Be Executed John Guandolo, a disgraced former FBI agent who appears to treat all brown people with beards as a threat to national security and once said Muslim women shouldn’t be allowed to hold public office, now has an even worse opinion.

This morning, Joe Biden said something stupid. (Surprise.) He claimed, perhaps jokingly, on a morning radio talk show with a predominantly black audience, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” And then, he apologized for it because it wasn’t funny, it wasn’t accurate, and what-the-hell-are-you-doing-Joe?
If you’re a Republican, that’s fodder for days’ worth of news segments. It doesn’t matter that Trump says far stupider things every day. It doesn’t matter that Trump says far more racist things every day. It doesn’t matter that Trump surrounds himself with and praises white nationalists. Who cares?!
A Democratic slip-up will always get more coverage than a Republican fuck-up.
All you have to do is shut up and let the Biden clip speak for itself.
Enter Christian author Eric Metaxas, a recently named “fellow” at Liberty University’s hilariously named Falkirk Center, who had perhaps the worst response you could imagine:
BREAKING: Just now Joe Biden tried & failed to walk back his “You ain’t black comment” by saying “Sho nuff you is fo shizzle ain’t black! Cuz Massa Trump be fixin to put all y’alls behinds back in chains! You done got yo sefs no choice in dis hyah. And that’s a FO sho fo sho!”
This is why there’s no conservative version of The Daily Show. Conservatives aren’t funny or clever. Their response to a racist comment is to be waaaaaay more racist. Unlike Biden, Metaxas hasn’t apologized. That tweet is still up. He’s just retweeting supportive comments now.
So, this actually completely undermines whatever point you thought you were making, and instead just shows you mocking African American Vernacular English, which is worse than the point you initially thought you were making.
When you accepted Trump as your lord and savior, did it come with a complimentary white hood? This is disgusting, no matter what point you were trying to make. You grieve God with this nonsense, but then, God was only a money-making tool for you, right?
— Susan Insufficiently Partisan Bagwell (@SweetieWalker) May 23, 2020
All of this comes just days after Metaxas claimed the only reason people were anti-racist was because of the Bible.
Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to rally at the White House, inviting a potentially dangerous mix of protesters after people angry about the death of an unarmed black man in Minnesota police custody skirmished with the Secret Service on Friday.
He threatened “the unlimited power” of the U.S. military to clamp down on demonstrations, tweeting from Air Force One as he traveled to Cape Canaveral, Florida, for the launch of a SpaceX spacecraft. The military is “ready, willing and able” to assist, Trump said earlier.
In a series of tweets early on Saturday, Trump also seemed to revel in the potential for violence outside the White House, warning that Friday’s protesters would have been met by “the most vicious dogs” and “most ominous weapons” had they dared to breach the fence around the property.
He depicted Secret Services agents as eager to battle the demonstrators, and later issued an appeal to his supporters to assemble: “Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???”
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser rebuked the president in her own series of tweets, calling him “a scared man. Afraid/alone” and saying she stood with people peacefully protesting the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis this week.
Those demonstrations were not altogether peaceful, though. The Secret Service said in a statement that it arrested six people and that “multiple” personnel from the agency were injured when protesters assaulted them with “bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items.”
Videos from Friday’s demonstration showed protesters chasing journalists from the park and throwing objects at officers wearing riot gear, and Secret Service officers responding with pepper spray.
Contrary to Trump’s assertion that Bowser “wouldn’t let the D.C. police get involved,” the Secret Service said the city’s police and U.S. Park Police were also on the scene of the protests.
Call for Restraint
Bowser called a press conference on Saturday to discuss the situation. “I call upon our city and our nation to exercise great restraint, even while the president tries to divide us,” she said.
Trump told reporters he had “no idea” if his boosters would assemble on Saturday night at the White House.
“I heard that MAGA wanted to be there — that a lot of MAGA was going to be there,” Trump said as he departed the White House, using the acronym for “Make America Great Again.”
Washington on Friday entered “Phase One” of its reopening from coronavirus stay-at-home restrictions. Large gatherings of people are currently prohibited.
Trump also tweeted that “ANTIFA and the Radical Left” were stoking protests against Floyd’s death, a day after saying he understood the “pain” that demonstrators were feeling. “Antifa,” short for anti-fascist, is sometimes used to describe militant left-wing activists.
Attorney General William Barr made a brief televised statement to make similar comments, tying the protests to “groups of outside radicals and agitators exploiting the situation.”
“It is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting. We will enforce these laws,” Barr said. He took no questions.
Minnesota officials, including the state’s Democratic governor, echoed Trump’s suggestion that organized agitators were exploiting anger about the death of Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed black man.
“The situation in Minneapolis is no longer in any way about the murder of George Floyd,” Governor Tim Walz said. “It is about attacking civil society, instilling fear and disrupting our great cities.”
Video showed a white police officer in Minneapolis kneeling on Floyd’s neck to the point the arrested man could no longer breathe. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was arrested Friday and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
In Washington, demonstrators gathered in a park across from the White House around dusk on Friday, briefly causing the compound to be locked down. It was just one of a string of protests around the country, from Atlanta to Oakland, California.
Trump said he “watched every move” of Friday’s protests outside the White House, and couldn’t have felt more safe.”
Had protesters breached the complex’s fence, they would have faced “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons,” Trump said. “That’s when people would have been really badly hurt, at least.”
Bowser said in her briefing that Trump’s reference to attack dogs was “no subtle reminder to African-Americans of segregationists that let dogs out on women, children and innocent people in the South.” She called the comments “an attack on humanity.”
Friday night’s protests came on a day after Trump appeared to threaten violence against certain demonstrators, tweeting overnight that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
The phrase echoed a remark made in 1967 by a white Miami police chief when announcing tougher policing policies for the Florida city’s black neighborhoods. In a rare reversal, Trump later said his tweet wasn’t intended as a threat, but merely meant to discourage looting that has historically coincided with violence.
Trump also said he’d spoken with Floyd’s family and that he understood the hurt and pain of demonstrators.
“We have peaceful protesters, and support the rights for peaceful protesters,” Trump said Friday. “We can’t allow a situation like in Minneapolis to descend further into lawless anarchy and chaos.
President Trump on Sunday retweeted a video of one of his supporters yelling “White power!,” once again using the vast reach of his social media platforms to inflame racial divisions in a nation roiled by weeks of protests about police brutality against black people and demands for social justice reforms.
The edited racist video shows a white man riding in a golf cart bearing “Trump 2020” and “America First” signs during what appears to be an angry clash over the president and race between white residents of a Florida retirement community. Mr. Trump deleted the tweet more than three hours after posting it.
In response to a protester shouting “Where’s your white hood?” and other taunts, the man in the golf cart pumps his fist in the air and says “White power!” twice. The two-minute video continues to show profane exchanges between protesters and other Trump supporters riding on more golf carts.
The president retweeted the video to his millions of followers just after 7:30 a.m., thanking “the great people of The Villages,” the Florida retirement community where the clash apparently took place. He added: “The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!”
The tweet was widely criticized as racist and insensitive, and again demonstrated the president’s willingness use social media to amplify some of the most hateful commentary of some of his followers, even at a moment of national unrest.
Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, the only black Republican senator, called the video “offensive” and asked Mr. Trump to take it off his Twitter page.
“There is no question he should not have retweeted it, and he should just take it down,” Mr. Scott said on the CNN program “State of the Union.” “We can play politics with it or we can’t. I’m not going to. I think it’s indefensible. We should take it down.”
Mr. Trump deleted it less than an hour after Mr. Scott’s comments, but he did not condemn the “white power” statement or specifically disavow the sentiment expressed by his supporter.
Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, said Mr. Trump “is a big fan of The Villages.”
“He did not hear the one statement made on the video,” Mr. Deere said. “What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters.”
John R. Bolton, the former national security adviser who just released a scathing book about Mr. Trump, said on Sunday that the president’s inattention to detail made it possible that he did not notice the racist comments.
“He doesn’t pay attention to a lot of things,” Mr. Bolton said on “State of the Union.” “It’s entirely possible that he tweeted this video because he saw the sign, I think it was in the first go-kart that said the Trump 2020 or something like that. That’s all he needed to see. Not paying attention. Not considering all the implications of information he gets.”
But Mr. Bolton added, “It may be that you can draw a conclusion that he heard it, and it was racist, and he tweeted it to promote the message. It’s a legitimate conclusion to draw.”
Either way, the president’s initial decision to approvingly share the blatant support for white supremacy was the latest example of his willingness to use his vast Twitter following to inject incendiary commentary into the ongoing debate in the country over systemic racism.
In May, as protests erupted after the killing of George Floyd, a black man, by a Minneapolis police officer, Mr. Trump tweeted, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” a phrase with a long history of connection to racism.
More recently, Mr. Trump has used his Twitter feed to attack protesters who have pulled down statues of Confederate generals, calling them “arsonists, anarchists, looters, and agitators.” On Saturday night, he tweeted out 15 “wanted” posters for people the U.S. Park Police were seeking in connection with vandalism in Lafayette Square, just outside the White House.
The video on Sunday — which could not be independently verified by The New York Times — appeared to show a slow-moving parade through the Florida community with supporters of Mr. Trump riding golf carts, wearing red, white and blue, and displaying pro-Trump materials.
Protesters lined the street, many of them screaming epithets, accusing the Trump supporters of being racists and holding signs calling the president a bigot.
In his tweet, Mr. Trump did not specifically refer to the man who yelled “white power.” But his reference to “the great people of The Villages” was an eerie echo of his comments in the summer of 2017, when he responded to deadly violence by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., by saying there were “very fine people on both sides.”
Joseph R. Biden Jr., the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, invoked the president’s comments about Charlottesville in response to the video on Sunday.
“We’re in a battle for the soul of the nation — and the President has picked a side,” Mr. Biden tweeted.
Mr. Trump has repeatedly denied that he was expressing support for white supremacy with his “both sides” comment. But the tweet on Sunday underscores what has become a hallmark of his presidency since he took office: a willingness to embrace divisive comments when they are coming from people he perceives to be his supporters.
The president has routinely retweeted far-right messages and a conspiracy theory known as QAnon, which includes people who believe that a “deep state” in the government is filled with satanic pedophiles. Mr. Trump once retweeted VB Nationalist, an anonymous account that has promoted a hoax about top Democrats worshiping the Devil and engaging in child sex trafficking.
“I’ve been retweeted by the President of the United States, President Trump!” the author of the anonymous account tweeted at the time.
An analysis of Mr. Trump’s Twitter account by The New York Times at the end of last year found that the president had retweeted at least 145 unverified accounts that had pushed conspiracy, racist or other fringe content, including more than two dozen that were later suspended by Twitter.
Recently, Twitter has begun to crack down directly on Mr. Trump’s feed, posting warnings on some of his messages. In May, when the president tweeted about shooting following looting, the company added a statement to the post.
“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the company wrote. Later, when the president warned that efforts by protesters to set up an “autonomous zone” in Washington, D.C., would be “met with serious force!,” Twitter put up a similar message and blocked it from being retweeted.
The quick deletion of the video on Sunday was a rare instance in which Mr. Trump backed down in the face of criticism. His previous tweets have remained online despite the company’s online warnings.
To the haters, the takers, the liars, all the vultures and the bottom feeding scum The FCC, the FBI and every tin god with a badge and a gun You talk and talk, you preach and bitch but your words don’t mean a thing You get what you give, you give what you get Just the way it’s always been

Since a real President, Barack Obama was elected? Trumpturds and Taliban Kristo Kracker Krazies have been promoting either a Civil War or a race war called a Boogaloo. Time for them to put up or shut the fuck up
Don’t you all get sick and tired of these troglodyte Trumpturds and Taliban Kristo Kracker Krazies spewing from their well used outhouse pieholes how they want to start a race war and take over the country and install their Fascist Kristo Kracker Krazie Turd Reich upon us all. For almost 12 years straight? We have heard these generational inbred, farm animal fucking, twisted pieces of shit, who think they are supreme to all the rest of us, spew how they are going to rise up and take over. Their Civil War for Traitor Trump, or their Boogaloo for their White KKKunts.
They parade around our streets dressed up in their finest garb for war, but put most of these Gi Joe wanna be punks on a real battlefield? With real bullets and bombs taking them out? They would piss and shit their diapers and run like the little bitches they actually are.
Sure, these punks, these mental midget morons are “brave”. When they attack a single person, in a group? The sure are brave huh? Or when they hide in the shadows and shoot some unarmed person. Or run over a group of them in a crowd. Yeah, they sure are real “tough guys”, terrorizing basically defenseless people. But again? Let the odds be even and these pussies for Trump? With people blowing the heads off of the punks next to them? Or seeing their fucking retarded friends running screaming in flames as napalm or other similar weapons take out whole groups of them? Trust me, these punks will be the real snowflakes they are and surrender.
That is what my father always taught me. Stand up to bullies like these Trumpturds and Kristo Kracker Krazies. They are basically punks, scared of their own shadows, and to try to make up for their being real pussies? They do all they can to act tough. But you stand up to a bully and kick his ass? They learn not to fuck with you. And so? I started to kick bullies asses who picked on me, on my loved ones and my friends. I knocked the teeth out of one bully for biting my sister and friends. I buried a fucking fork in the forearm of one bully trying to steal my lunch. I beat one bully so fucking bad at the boarding school I went to for trying to steal my money he actually left the school and had to have around $30,000 worth of surgery to repair the damage I did to his punk bully face. I beat the hell out of a misogynist pig punk who thought it was his right to beat the shit out of a woman in the middle of the street. This is what you do to bully punks like these Trumpturds and Kristo Kracker Krazies pushing this Civil War and Boogaloo shit. You give them right back what they put forth and then? You watch these pussies, these punk bullies fold like the bitches they are. And? They hate it when you throw their hate, their bigotry, their insanity right back into their faces either.
Yeah, they do truly think they are tough. And yeah, some of these twisted Trumpturds are psychotically dangerous. But a full frontal lobotomy from a 50 cal Desert Eagle will take care of the problem. Or a whole group of these scumbags being doused with napalm and lit up like one of their racist crosses they light up as they have a fucking circle jerk dancing around their cross in their pointy hats and white dresses to swallow each others jizz as they jerk off for their heroes Hitler and Trump.
These assholes parade on our streets, dressed in their finest battle gear, flak jackets, helmets, and of course? Their small dick replacements. Thinking they are absolutely bad ass. Here is the funny thing though. In a real war? We give no fucking mercy. So you wear a bullet proof jacket? So what. Your legs and micro balls are exposed and we will not be wasting bullets on shooting center mass or head shots. No bitches, we will take your legs out first and then finish you punks off with full frontal lobotomies and I know a few people who will love using their Nazi head busting Louisville’s to bust your heads open.
I mean come on, look at what we will be fighting. Punks, who think because they play Call of Duty video games that makes them tough. Or because they hang out with their generational inbred butt buddies for a weekend shooting off their big, bad guns at their “KristoTaliban Traitor Training Camps”, that also makes them bad asses. But again? There is one huge difference between being at a gun gallery shooting off your gun and being on a real battlefield with people shooting back at you.
Most of these fuckers think the are part of the Master Race? Really? What master race is that? Generational inbreds? Daughter fucking? Flying flags of loser armies? Well they are masters at circle jerks that is for sure. Most of these punks dropped out of second grade home schooling cause they knocked up their teachers, or got knocked up by their teachers and daddy had to marry them off to their mommies, or uncles had to marry them off to their daddies, in shotgun weddings. Can’t you hear their theme song of Dueling Banjos playing now? This has to be a fucking family portrait of inbreds, really. I mean they sure do fit the neanderthal troglodyte stage of evolution. Well they never evolved in the first place, they just crawled out of the assholes of the amoebas, eating the shit from other ameobas asses in their well used outhouses they live in and call home.
Yeah basically? This is the bulk, and I do mean BULK of Traitor Trump’s army. For real. Most of these Trumpturds could not follow Commander Bone Spurs up Pork Chop Hill on the 9th green of Mar-A-Largo golf course. Most of these fucks could not walk a half a block in full battle gear without crying for their mommies to change their diapers.
Again? These fucking morons? NEVER read their hero Hitler’s ideology on what the Master Race and Aryan Nation was.
Adolf Hitler thought that people of Northern European descent were a superior race to all others known as the Aryan Race. Throughout World War 2 his goal was for that perfect race known as the “Übermensch” which translates as “Super Man”. Their goal was to wipe out those of not pure Aryan descent or the “Untermensch” which translates as “Sub-Human”. Because Hitler believed people such as Jews to be impure, he killed many of them in his quest for utopia. He also believed that the reason that the Germans lost World War I was that the German race had been weakened due to the inter-marriage of Übermensch and Untermensch.
The idea of the “Master Race” came from a 19th century theory which claimed that there was a hierarchy of races. The bottom of that hierarchy included dark-skinned people and Jews. In the middle were the Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Italians who were considered semi-tainted by mixing with the Untermensch. The top of the hierarchy were Germans, Swedes, Icelanders, Norwegians, Danes, English, and Dutch who were considered the Aryans. From a leaflet ‘The Nazi Race’ in 1929 “The Aryan race is tall, long legged, slim. The race is narrow-faced, with a narrow forehead, a narrow high-built nose and a lower jaw and prominent chin the skin is rosy bright and the blood shines through ….. the hair is smooth, straight or wavy – possibly curly in childhood. The colour is blond.”
In order to get a pure race, Hitler created a selective human breeding program called the Lebensborn program. He made breeding facilities where Aryan women were recruited to have children with S.S. soldiers. Any German man who wanted to be part of the program had to prove that he was in perfect physical condition and is “racially pure” as far back as the year of 1750. Marriages between those of the Aryans and those who weren’t was considered a major crime. The Lebensborn program produced more the 42,000 babies before it was closed down in 1944. The Germans also captured Aryans from conquered countries which surrounded them. From just Poland, they kidnapped 200,000 Aryan children.
To be considered of the Aryan Race in Hitler’s eyes you didn’t just have to have blonde hair and blue eyes but you needed to be physically fit. The Lebensborn program required male applicants to be at least 6 ft. tall near the end of it. Hitler thought people who were 6 ft.6 in. and taller as the highest creed of the Übermensch and called them “Hünenmensch” and considered them to be the closest relatives to the original Germanic warrior tribes.
Nazi soldiers with that tribute were given a special medal called the Hünenkreuz and instant promotion to the status of S.S. officer. People who had the trait of gigantism were not considered as one of these special Germans because they grow abnormally tall due to a defective pituitary gland.
For every imperfect person with a disease or religion that Hitler didn’t like he killed them equaling an unimaginable amount of deaths just for the ideal human. Today people are still searching for the Aryans but we all know as a fact that these “perfect people” (or at least Hitler’s Aryans) were just perfect in the body not the mind. So for now humans will continue to be imperfect and I doubt we will ever find the true Aryans which Hitler thought he had found. It is as Miley Cyrus once said ,”Nobody’s perfect.”
From Hitler’s Aryan Race-Hitler’s German Society: The Aryan Race
If you white supremacist Trumpturd rejects of humanity want to get on your knees and suck the dick of your failed loser hero Hitler, who would have sent each and every one of you mongrel mutts to his death camps? Then have at it. You Trumpturd mental midget morons want to give up your life for Traitor Trump? Commander Bone Spurs who does not give one flying fuck about you, just like Hitler would not give one flying fuck about you? If you want to fucking die for the Kristo Kunt Kracker Talibans like Jim Jeffress, Paula Jones, Franklin Graham, Jim Bakker, Jerry Falwell Jr and the rest of the Fascist KristoTalibans?
