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.”

2020 Election

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

on

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:

Something is killing galaxies — and science is on the case

Published

In the most extreme regions of the universe, galaxies are being killed. Their star formation is being shut down and astronomers want to know why.

The first ever Canadian-led large project on one of the world’s leading telescopes is hoping to do just that. The new program, called the Virgo Environment Traced in Carbon Monoxide survey (VERTICO), is investigating, in brilliant detail, how galaxies are killed by their environment.

As VERTICO’s principal investigator, I lead a team of 30 experts that are using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) to map the molecular hydrogen gas, the fuel from which new stars are made, at high resolution across 51 galaxies in our nearest galaxy cluster, called the Virgo Cluster.

Inside the Trump administration’s chaotic dismantling of the Federal Land Agency

Published

on

Early this month, workers at the Washington headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management gathered to discuss a Trump administration plan that would force some 200 people to uproot their lives or find other jobs.

With a vague plan that keeps changing as officials describe it — and no guarantees that Congress would fully fund their relocations — the employees were being detailed to distant locations in the West like Grand Junction, Colorado, and Reno, Nevada. Many career staff saw the move as part of a wider Trump administration effort to drive federal employees out of their jobs. Acting White House chief of staff Mike Mulvaney has described that approach as a “wonderful way to streamline government.”
