Putting aside any other issues alluded to or stated in re the whole Clinton-supporters-against-Obama issue, it strikes me that attacking someone for a name which implies a specific ethnicity or at the very least a specific language group is the very definition of racism, as D-Day says. Once you get down to "ZOMG Hussein", there's no more quibbling about various shades of racism, about theories or ideologies or dialectics - if you're connecting two people based on a name with a non-Indo-European root, you are, in fact, engaging in racism.
A beach condo building in Florida partially collapsed overnight, bringing down many residents along with it. Survivors described the horrifying screams from trapped neighbors that they couldn't reach.
Now a video has emerged that shows the moment when the building came down. It appears that a middle section was first to collapse and the tower next to it came down next.
Authorities are asking people who are trying to reach their relatives to call the Miami family reunification hotline and they will work to help locate your family member. The number is 305-614-1819.
According to KSAT, a sheriff's lieutenant in Bexar County, Texas, which includes the city of San Antonio, has been fired after she participated in the attack on the Capitol on January 6 — and boasted on social media that it was the "best day of my life."
"Lt. Roxanne Mathai, 46, was given an order of dismissal five months after BCSO Sheriff Javier Salazar said he intended to never have her set foot in a BCSO building again," reported KSAT's Dillon Collier. "Mathai's attendance of the insurrection first became public in report by the KSAT 12 Defenders on Jan. 7. She later claimed through an attorney she was unaware of the bloodshed, including a slain police officer, at the riot."
Mathai reportedly posted photos on Facebook showing rioters inside the Capitol after breaking through police lines.
"Not gonna lie.....aside from my kids, this was, indeed, the best day of my life. And it's not over yet," Mathai wrote on Facebook.
The Capitol riot played host to a number of people from military and law enforcement backgrounds, prompting police across the country to confront extremism in their ranks.
Fox News host Steve Doocy disagreed with Lara Trump on Thursday after she said that the network's polling is not "legitimate" because it indicates that President Joe Biden has a "glowing" approval rating.
During an interview on Fox News, Trump blamed Biden for what she said was "skyrocketing" crime in America.
"How do you explain his approval rating was at 54%?" Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade asked. (In fact, the network's latest poll suggests Biden enjoys a 56% approval rating.)
"I mean, I truly don't believe that," Trump replied. "I don't think that is a legitimate number. I also think that he gets totally coddled, guys, by the mainstream media. Every time you see him truly asked a question by so many of these outlets, they are these softball questions about ice cream."
"And he just gets glowing reviews all around from the mainstream media," she added. "So very clearly people who tune in to those outlets are not getting the full picture on Joe Biden. I cannot believe that anybody would have his approval rating anywhere over about negative 5% at this point."
"Fox News stands by the poll," Doocy responded with a laugh.
