Charlottesville white supremacist marcher gets ID’d on Twitter and loses job at hot dog restaurant

Published

Another “alt-right” white supremacist marcher photographed in Charlottesville, VA over the weekend has learned why his 19th and 20th century forebears wore hoods to their rallies.

According to the East Bay Times, Cole White of Berkeley, CA has lost his job at Top Dog — a chain of hot dog restaurants.

“Effective Saturday 12th August, Cole White no longer works at Top Dog,” said an email statement from the restaurant chain. “The actions of those in Charlottesville are not supported by Top Dog. We believe in individual freedom and voluntary association for everyone.”

On Saturday, Twitter user @YesYoureRacist began to circulate photos of the tiki-torch-carrying mob of white supremacist who marched on Friday night, as well as photos from the “Unite the Right” march, which quickly devolved into a violent melee in which a 20-year-old white supremacist rammed his car into a crowd of anti-fascist marchers, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring at least 19 others.

Using the hashtag #GoodNightAltRight, @YesYoureRacist collected identification on a number of racist marchers, including White and James Allsup, the president of Washington State University’s chapter of the College Republicans.

One marcher — identified as 20-year-old Peter Cvjetanovic — tried to frantically backtrack after being exposed as one of the white supremacist marchers, insisting he’s “not the angry racist” people see in the viral photos.

Georgia secretary of state: ‘There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters’

Published

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger warned on Monday that outside groups are trying to take advantage of the "emotions" of President Donald Trump's supporters with false information about the recent and upcoming elections.

"There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half-truths, misinformation and, frankly, they are misleading the president as well," Raffensperger explained at a Monday press conference.

The Georgia official went on to announce investigations into over 250 claims of election irregularities.

"Upholding the law matters, truth matters, and your vote matters," he insisted. "Anyone telling you to boycott an election is not on your side. You're right to vote is sacred. Don't let someone con you out of it."

2020 Election

The View hosts mock Republicans for ‘shooting themselves in the foot’ on election conspiracies

Published

on

The hosts of "The View" couldn't help but notice that the Republicans are making it more difficult to get their own voters out to support Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) for the special election in January.

The problem the GOP has to overcome is that the overwhelming majority of Republican voters believe that the 2020 election was "rigged" by Democrats. It puts Republicans in a difficult place because now they have to combat that message with assurances that the Georgia special election isn't already rigged for the Democrats.

"I'm really sick of all of this," Whoopi Goldberg bemoaned. "I'm sick of people blaming American citizens for cheating in their own elections. I'm sick of this. You're blaming Republican governors. You're blaming people who are saying, 'Actually, no.' Why would they fight against their own interests, and, again, I will say if the Democrats had done this, why has everybody still got a job? None of this makes any sense to me."

Georgia Republicans turn on Gov. Brian Kemp: He ‘will be primaried’

Published

on

Georgia Republicans were already unhappy with Gov. Brian Kemp, and his refusal to interfere in President Donald Trump's election loss may have been the last straw.

Trump claims credit for Kemp's election win two years ago, but he and other Republicans have withdrawn their support after the governor has declined to get involved in the president's efforts to overturn his loss to Joe Biden in Georgia and other states, reported The Daily Beast.

“[Kemp] will be primaried," said Kay Godwin, the chair of the Pierce County GOP. "Just hoping and praying we get the right one this time.”
