WATCH: Angry pro-Confederate protester asks for help spelling ‘Do your research!’ message to liberals

Published

on

The fight over Confederate monuments has come to Virginia Beach, Virginia where a rally is underway. In efforts to give people a place to speak out, local police set up a whiteboard where people could write their feelings about the monument.

One Trump supporter (identified by his white Trump t-shirt) cut through the crowd to approach the whiteboard, according to Virginia Beach city government reporter Alissa Skelton. He wrote, “Do your research,” but had to turn to a reporter to ask how to spell research.

The Progressive Democrats there for Thursday’s afternoon rally erased the comment by the man. He then returned and tried to write on the board again.

“It ain’t got nothing to do with me!” he shouted to the crowd and reporters. “It’s got something to do with right and wrong.”

Some of those in attendance wrote the names of their ancestors who fought in the civil war and one post included statistics on the number of African American men who fought and died for the Union during the war.

At one point the rally organizers attempted to hold a mock slave auction during the protest.

You can watch the rally live and see the photos and video of the Trump supporter below:

Tommy Chong waxes philosophical about his stoner persona, jazz music, and dealing with Trump

Published

on

Tommy Chong plays arguably one of the two sanest characters in the trippy, psychotronic, sci-fi film, "Color Out of Space," based on the H. P. Lovecraft story. The comedian, actor, and marijuana activist plays Ezra, a "hippie reprobate" and squatter living off the grid — even his cameras are solar-powered — and on the land owned by alpaca farmer Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage). When a meteorite lands on the property, all hell breaks loose, with animals changing form or dying, strange voices being heard, plants growing, electronics going wonky, and water being contaminated (Nathan develops a strange rash after a shower). Ezra wonders, have aliens arrived? Perhaps.

Why a conservative columnist thinks Republicans’ impeachment strategy will blow up in their faces

Published

on

It remains to be seen whether Republicans will maintain their U.S. Senate majority in November’s election. If Democrats are able to flip four GOP-help seats while holding onto all of the seats they are defending, Mitch McConnell would cease to be Senate majority leader in January 2021. And conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a scathing column published on Friday morning, argues that Senate Republicans — with their appalling behavior during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial — are giving Democrats plenty of material for attack ads against incumbent GOP senators who are seeking reelection this year.
