White supremacist begs for cash after being arrested for aggravated assault on anti-Confederate protesters

Published

A white supremacist who was arrested for charging at anti-Confederate demonstrators during a small protest in Florida is now asking for the internet to help pay his legal fees, according to Miami New Times.

Christopher Rey Monzon, who also goes by the name Chris Cedeno, was quickly arrested in August after he charged into the crowd, who were urging city commissioners in Hollywood, Florida, to rename streets bearing the names of Confederate generals.

“You are a cancer on the face of the earth!” Monzon told the protesters. “All Jews are!”

Video of the incident showed him waving his Confederate flag towards the protesters as he tries to rush towards the crowd. But he only made it a few feet before police officers grabbed him.

The 22-year-old Monzon was charged with disorderly conduct, aggravated assault and inciting a riot.

He has now turned to a crowdfunding website called GoyFundMe to seek help paying his legal fees.

“Because Mr. Cedeno’s politics don’t follow the mainstream view, the legal system is throwing the book at him to silence him and intimidate anyone else who holds his views, namely that Islam has no place in the South,” his fundraising page claims. Monzon is seeking $1,000 to “fight these bogus charges.”

European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland will leave no wiggle room for President Donald Trump to deny his direct involvement in the Ukraine scandal in his bombshell opening statement.

As reported by the Daily Beast, Sondland will testify that he followed President Donald Trump's orders to work with personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on dealing with Ukraine, despite the fact that he was personally reluctant to do so.

"Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States," the statement says. "We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders."

Elise Stefanik shredded by local columnist for selling out to Trump: ‘She’s not one of us’

Published

on

Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been dubbed a "rising star" by President Donald Trump for her sycophantic defenses of him during the House impeachment inquiry.

But Ken Tingley, a newspaper columnist at the Glens Falls Post Star in upstate New York, believes that her strident defenses of the president will cost her dearly in her district.

In his latest column, Tingley offers a scathing assessment of Stefanik's character by pointing out that she swooped into the district despite not living there after a career that suggested she'd rather be running the Republican National Committee than representing New York's 21st district.
