GOP candidate has history of violent racist Facebook posts — and boasts he’s ‘on special assignment’ from Trump

Published

on

Leo Mirolli Jr., a paramedic and Republican candidate for coroner in Pennsylvania’s Northumberland County, has a long history of controversial Facebook posts that include racial epithets, rape jokes and threats to get his critics fired.

According to Sunbury, PA’s Daily Item, Mirolli’s rhetoric, which includes a post where he used the n-word to refer to rapper Kanye West, drew criticism from the Northumberland County Republican Committee.

Simple Facebook searches reveal Mirolli regularly posts using bigoted language. In several of them, he refers to black men accused of rape as “Obama’s children,” and also links to right-wing blogs peddling fake news about Muslims being “pro-rape” to bolster his anti-Muslim stance.

Mirolli, who regularly makes posts critical of “liberals,” also claimed he’s “on a special assignment for President Trump to keep the snowflakes busy” while he builds his border wall “up to Washington.”

But it’s the way Mirolli “intimidates” those who disagree with him that’s most upset one of his fellow Northumberland residents.

According to a resident in the county, who contacted Raw Story and asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation from Mirolli, the Republican coroner candidate is trying to silence naysayers by doxxing them.

In one instance earlier this week, Mirolli posted a photo of pages of social media exchanges that he said he intends to take to Geisinger Sunbury, a primary care practice where many of his critics work. According to the Northumberland resident who contacted Raw Story, Mirolli publicly accused nurses of being a “junkies” on Facebook — unsubstantiated claims that could put their jobs in jeopardy.

White supremacists accounted for majority of terror-related arrests in last year: FBI director

Published

on

FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers on Tuesday that his agency has so far made roughly 100 terrorism-related arrests so far this fiscal year -- and the majority of them are related in some way to the white supremacist movement.

As Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky reports, Wray made his remarks about white supremacist terrorists while being questioned by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) during an appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Despite the fact that white supremacists accounted for a majority of terror-related arrests in the first three quarters of this fiscal year, however, Wray also said that the FBI still considers jihadi-inspired terrorism to be the greater overall threat.

Published

Florida police chased down a joy-riding black teenager, struck the bicycle he was riding and then violently arrested him after he fled in terror.

Jaydon Stubbs and four friends were riding July 17 on their way to Hollywood Beach when an officer spotted the teens in an area where there had been a string of recent burglaries, reported WPLG-TV.

The officer saw the boys popping wheelies and ignoring traffic laws, so she tried to stop them for questioning -- but they split up and rode away from her.

Here’s how Boris Johnson is already shaping up to be Britain’s Trump

Published

on

On Tuesday, Boris Johnson, former British Foreign Secretary and leader of the Conservative Party, secured the votes in Parliament to become the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

It is an outcome that was long considered likely — and it creates parallels with the 2016 election of President Donald Trump in the United States, as there are a great many similarities between the politics and styles of these two men, notes NPR.

First, and most obviously, both men are brusque right-wing populists who have made controlling immigration their core issue on the political stage — in Trump's case it is building the wall, while in Johnson's case it is implementing Brexit.
