‘God will wipe them out’: White supremacist preacher promises ‘bloodshed’ at future rallies

Published

on

Although Patriot Prayer’s rally in San Francisco was cancelled last weekend, a Portland, Oregon preacher aligned with the far-right group says there’s more — and worse — to come.

According to the Willamette Week, pro-Trump street preacher Allen Puckett is threatening violence at future rallies.

“Any movement forward in the future will inevitably have bloodshed,” Puckett wrote in a Facebook post on Monday. “Those not willing need to stop organizing and attending rallies.”

In a video, Puckett also said that “God’s going to wipe them out one day anyway,” referring to anti-racist and anti-fascist counter-protesters who have marched against white supremacist groups in recent months. He also professed a belief that those who organize such rallies shouldn’t cancel them for fear of violent retaliation, but should be “patriots” willing to “fight” in the streets for their white supremacist beliefs.

“Peace has never been an option,” Puckett reportedly wrote in a comment on his Facebook post. “Too many niave [sic] people who need to wake up to the reality that the violent understand nothing but victory or defeat through violence.”

Patriot Prayer has planned a “Freedom March” for September 10 in Portland, and the Willamette Week noted that at least three groups intend to counter-protest.

Earlier this year, Puckett was filmed brawling with anti-fascist protesters in Berkeley while wearing a “JESUS WILL JUDGE YOU” sweatshirt.

“Am I scared?” he said. “Yes, because I think I’m more scared of our own Justice Department than these criminals right now.”

Lev Parnas’s lawyer declared ‘open war’ on AG Bill Barr during Maddow interview: attorney

Published

The attorney for Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas appears to be using a novel legal strategy, attorney Luppe Luppen explained on Friday.

Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump

Published

on

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
