WATCH: Lonely Confederate supporter tackled by Miami cops after attacking demonstrators

Published

on

Only one white supremacist showed up to protest the renaming of controversial street names in South Florida — he was promptly arrested after using a Confederate Flag as a spear while charging a large crowd of anti-racism activists.

“Today, a local white supremacist, Chris Cedeno, was arrested after witnesses on-scene say he charged into the crowd of civil-rights protesters,” the Miami New Times reports. “Cedeno was standing near the entrance to Hollywood City Hall, in front of a police line that separated him from 150 to 200 protesters. After Cedeno briefly jawed back and forth with a protester from roughly 10 feet away, he ran directly at the crowd. Cops swooped in and removed Cedeno in handcuffs.”

The incident occurred as city commissioners in Hollywood, FL were considering renaming three streets honoring confederate generals John Hood and Robert E. Lee, along with Ku Klux Klan grand-wizard Nathan Bedford Forrest.

“Cedeno showed up to the protest in a shirt emblazoned with the logo for the Florida League of the South, a white nationalist group that wants the Confederate states to secede from the union again and create a society led by white, Christian people of European descent,” New Times noted. “Cedeno waved a flag that combined the classic Confederate “stars and bars” with the black-and-white League of the South logo.”

Earlier this year, Cedeno wore a neo-Nazi pin on his shirt collar when defending the use of the n-word by a prominent Miami Republican.

Reporter Shyann Malone of WPLG ABC Miami shared dramatic video of the arrest:

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed

Published

on

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."

Bill Barr denies giving the order to gas protesters for Trump photo-op

Published

on

America's top law enforcement office on Friday denied giving the highly-controversial order to gas protesters prior to a photo-op with President Donald Trump holding a Bible.

"Attorney General William Barr says law enforcement officers were already moving to push back protesters from a park in front of the White House when he arrived there Monday evening, and he says he did not give a command to disperse the crowd, though he supported the decision," The Associated Press reports.

"Barr’s comments in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday were his most detailed explanation yet of what unfolded outside the White House earlier this week. They come after the White House and others said repeatedly that the attorney general ordered officers to clear the park," the AP reported. "Shortly after officers aggressively pushed back demonstrators, President Donald Trump — accompanied by Barr, Pentagon leaders and other top advisers — walked through Lafayette Park to pose for a photo at a nearby church that had been damaged during the protests."
