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.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe can’t wait for Democrats to throw McConnell’s words back in his face

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave Democrats every justification to expand the Supreme Court.

The "Morning Joe" host -- an ex-Republican -- said Democrats should throw McConnell's words back in his face to make the case for expanding the court if they retake the majority, after Republicans brazenly violated their own precedent to ram through Amy Coney Barrett.

"I love watching stuff like this," Scarborough said. "This is, like, do I need some popcorn? No, I'll tell you why. Every word that Mitch McConnell -- every single word -- and if Democrats have half a brain, and if they're not wimps, they will actually lift that speech word for word and use it when they expand the court to 11 or 12 justices."

Trump ‘is in a state of panic’ as he sees ‘the walls closing in’: MSNBC’s Heilemann

Published

During an MSNBC discussion of the curious choices Donald Trump's campaign is making about his rally locations, "Morning Joe" regular John Heilemann stated the president "is in a panic" and can't think straight --even more than normal -- because he knows he's losing badly.

With only seven days ago, the president has been holding two to three rallies per day, which led "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough to ask Heileman if there is a strategy behind the choices the president is making.

"I think the president's in a state of panic," the MSNBC regular asserted. "I think that's the only real answer and I think you see things like -- you guys pointed to in the last hour when you talk about Trump being up in New Hampshire is good example of that kind of panic."

Our military is up to something in South America

Published

With withering poll numbers and a flip of control of the Senate ever more likely, Donald Trump may be preparing to end Radical Republican rule with one last big bang—a war in South America.

For over a year now, our country has been quietly building forces near Venezuela, a nation with a leftist regime that this country has long sought to upend. Just last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a whirlwind three-day tour of Venezuela’s neighboring countries:
