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.

Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.

Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
