Ohio seventh-grader threatened to use dad’s gun to shoot Muslim boy he called ‘son of ISIS’

Published

on

An Ohio seventh-grader is accused of threatening to shoot a Muslim classmate he called a terrorist and a “towel head.”

The boy threatened on Dec. 7 to bring a .40-caliber gun from home the following day and kill a sixth-grader he had been feuding with on the school bus, reported WHIO-TV.

The older boy called the Muslim student “the son of ISIS” and accused him of responsibility for destroying the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001 — which happened before either boy was born.

The seventh-grader then asked the younger boy if he intended to bomb him, witnesses said.

The victim said he did not hear the older boy threaten to shoot him, but another student did and reported the incident to the bus driver.

The incident was captured on surveillance video that also recorded audio, and the victim said he believed the older boy would hurt him or other students.

The older boy admitted to using racial slurs, saying he was angry at the Muslim boy because he never wanted to sit down on the bus and plays his music too loud.

He told police he didn’t remember saying anything about a gun, but he agreed the recording showed he had threatened to shoot his classmate.

The boy told police that he was familiar with firearms because he hunts with his father.

He was arrested and charged with ethnic intimidation and aggravated menacing.

The seventh-grader wrote an apology letter to the Muslim boy, saying he was sorry for calling him names and scaring him.

Administrators at Vandalia-Butler City Schools have called for a 10-day suspension and recommended expulsion for the seventh-grader.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

on

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
