‘He didn’t even call the Charlottesville murderer that’: Internet unloads on Trump for calling Kaepernick an SOB

Published

on

After President Donald Trump alluded to controversial former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “son of a b*tch” during a rally in Alabama, Twitter exploded.

“Trump used harsher language to describe Kaepernick than he used for the Neo-Nazi who killed Heather Heyer,” Christiana Mbakwe‏, a writer for “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” tweeted.

“Colin Kaepernick is a real patriot and a fantastic human being,” another user wrote. “Donald Trump is a tool and a traitor.”

Others, like activist-journalist Shaun King, mused about how unusual (and dangerous) it is for a sitting president to use that type of language.

“The POTUS said son of a b*tch on primetime,” one user noted. “What a time to be alive.”

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.

Published

on

Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.

During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.

Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.

"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.
