Trump-lover’s anti-Islam rally in Georgia hilariously fails after only one other person shows up

Published

on

Anti-Muslim activists organized a rally they called “United against Islam and Islamic immigration refugee,” but they must have had trouble activating the Islamophobic community in the state because no one showed up. The group planned to shred a Quran and a picture of the Prophet Muhammad.

Jim Stachowiak, one of the event organizers is a Trump supporter according to a Huffington Post report last week. “I support Donald Trump because I like his agenda on dealing with the threats to this country — his ban on Islamic immigration,” he explained. He also added that he believes Muslim immigrants and refugees to the U.S. are “no more than an invading horde or army.”

Capitol Police Director Lewis G. Young notified employees of the Georgia state capitol that the protest rally would be taking place and that organizers were encouraging rally participants to come armed.

“DPS is currently monitoring the threat risk and, together with GBA, is taking precautions to make Capitol Hill a safe environment,” the warning continued. But the group was all bark and no bite if photos tweeted from the event are any indication.

Despite no attendees, the organizers did destroy a Quran. “We’re not against Muslims,” the man in the video below says to the media. He continued that the group is concerned about Islamic extremists not “Joe Muhammad down the street mowing his yard.”

The men had expected 200 rally attendants. Less than a hand full of people attended, all of which seemed to be organizers for the rally. In fact, there appeared to be more media attention than attention from participants of the demonstration.

After the buses never showed up, however, Trump supporters claimed that the bus company was part of a "deep state" conspiracy aimed at silencing their voices.

Mick Mulvaney is Trump’s new fall guy on corruption — and Republicans just play along

Published

on

It's getting increasingly more difficult to keep track of all the new impeachable acts President Trump commits every day. And perhaps even more difficult to imagine the most outrageous thing he can do that the Republican Party would still defend.

This article first appeared in Salon.

It took almost two weeks, but the White House has finally admitting what everyone knew from day one: Trump demanded a quid pro quo from the Ukrainian government before releasing military aid authorized by Congress. Republicans have been denying the obvious, remaining willfully blind to a brazen scheme. That suddenly seems quaint, now that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has confessed on live television that there was a quid pro quo.

The week Donald Trump’s presidency crashed and burned — and Republicans noticed

Published

on

It feels as though every week during the Trump administration is a year and every year a decade. Every day there is a crisis or an outrage or a revelation that takes your breath away. But the underlying dynamics always seem to be the same no matter what. The press reports the story, the Democrats get outraged, the pundits analyze it, the president rages and then Fox and the Republicans all line up like a bunch of robots and salute smartly. Then we reset until the next crisis, outrage or revelation. It's an exhausting cycle that never seems to get us anywhere and it's bred a fatalistic response in many of us: "Nothing matters."
