Accused cop killer waved Confederate flag at football game to protest ‘cop haters’ sitting out anthem

Published

on

The suspect in the “ambush” killings of two Iowa police officers was kicked out of a high school football game last month after clashing with black fans over his Confederate flag.

Scott Michael Greene was identified by police as the gunman who fatally shot the officers in separate attacks early Wednesday morning in the Des Moines area.

Greene surrendered without incident about 10:30 a.m. to a Department of Natural Resources officer in Dallas County.

A YouTube video uploaded to an account belonging to Scott Greene appears to show him arguing with Des Moines police officers after he claimed he was assaulted by fans Oct. 14 at a football game at Urbandale High School, reported Buzzfeed.

The officers asked the man to leave school property after the altercation, which witnesses said Greene instigated by carrying an American flag and Confederate flag.

“I think I’ve been assaulted by you,” Greene says to the officers. “You grabbed me and shoved me around.”

Greene posted a photo of himself holding the flags as several black fans in the background appear to yell at him, which his caption shows he considered a “civil rights violation.”

He offered a tragically ironic explanation for his Confederate flag display in a comment posted on the YouTube video.

“I was offended by the blacks sitting through our anthem,” Greene said. “Thousands more whites fought and died for their freedom. However this is not about the Armed forces, they are cop haters.”

He posted three other short video complaints set to music about drafty windows at his apartment building, along with another viral video showing a Latino “gang member” threatening a group of bikers with a gun.

Greene was arrested in 2001 on charges of domestic assault, assault causing bodily injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

He was also charged with drunken driving in 2010 and with first-degree harassment in 2014.

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."
