WATCH: Crude Trump supporters face an epic shaming after calling 5-year-old girl a ‘terrorist’

Published

A video of Trump supporters being confronted for allegedly calling a 5-year-old Palestinian-American girl a “terrorist” is quickly going viral.

The video shows three Trump supporters, one man and two women, being confronted by a Palestinian-American woman, teenage boy and young girl on a street in California.

“You called my 5-year-old cousin a terrorist,” the Palestinian-American woman, Rawan, says.

“Looks like one,” the man, who has been identified as Johnny Turano, responds in the video. “It doesn’t matter what age you are.”

“You’re calling a 5-year-old a terrorist,” Rawan remarks.

“But this is America, we can say whatever we want,” interjects Turano’s daughter, Bianca. “Freedom of speech.”

Rawan, who recorded the incident, told Raw Story the confrontation occurred in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Bianca can be seen taking her own video in Rawan’s recording — and that video was soon uncovered and shared online.

“You guys are terrorists, get out of here,” Bianca can be heard saying, as Johnny tells them to suck his dick.

“If you hate America so much leave,” Bianca tells them.

“I don’t hate America — I just hate [inaudible] f*cks like you,” the boy yells back.

Bianca’s video also shows the Trump supporters accosting other passersby. “You can suck my dick!” Johnny yells.

Johnny, who goes by the nickname “Based Spartan,” told the Vanguard earlier this year that he regretted becoming involved in the so-called “alt right” movement after he began noticing his comrades were brandishing swastikas.

Trump’s latest national security adviser is undercutting FBI Director Wray to quash report of new Russian meddling: report

Published

on

In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, historian David Rothkopf accused Donald Trump's latest national security director, Robert O'Brien, of undercutting the United States intelligence services and uses his comments about recent reports of new Russian election meddling to make the case that he is contradicting FBI Director Christopher Wray to please the president.

According to Rothkopf, "For just over a century, since America arrived as a major force on the global stage, we have feared that should our enemies defeat us, it would be on the battlefield or via a devastating nuclear onslaught. We never could have imagined that an enemy might take another approach altogether: infecting us with a presidential virus who this week gutted our national security leadership structures like a fish."

Decoding the Christian paradox: Evangelical historian explains how right-wingers ignore Jesus to support a corrupt and greedy president

Published

on

To quote the bumper sticker: "What would Jesus do?"

Assuming that he existed and held the views imputed to him, Jesus Christ would not support Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's behavior, values, policies and their consequences are the opposite of what Jesus Christ represented. Trump has put migrants and refugees in cages and delighted in their suffering. He feels contempt for the poor, the sick, the vulnerable and the needy. He has lied at least 16,000 times. He is corrupt and wildly greedy.

America could be on the verge of a huge shift to the left — here’s what you can expect

A new socialist movement is cohering in the US, thanks in large part to the popular class politics of Bernie Sanders. But as that movement grows and progresses, it is bound to run into dangerous obstacles and thorny contradictions. The new US socialist movement is without a single "line" or monolithic political position. That's a strength of the movement, since none of us has all the answers. Still, many people in the movement, ourselves included, feel strongly about certain approaches to strategy. One approach we feel strongly about is what we call "the democratic road to socialism," or the idea that we need to make good use of the democratic structures and processes available to us (and to improve and expand them) in order to advance our cause.A country like the United States has both a well-developed capitalist state, beholden to the capitalist class and armed to the teeth, and mechanisms for democratic participation in that state that allow people to exercise some measure of control over their representatives. Even though their choices are limited, their representatives are bought off by the rich, and the capitalist class holds the entire system hostage with the threat of devastating economic retaliation if things don't go their way, the system does have some basic democratic elements that its citizens largely affirm and occasionally participate in.This is a tricky situation to navigate. If the democratic capitalist state were less developed, it might be possible to convince people to simply storm the gates, tear up the old rules, and start fresh in a socialist society. This is what socialists tried to do in Russia in 1917: the state was weak and after centuries of autocratic rule it didn't have much legitimacy in the eyes of most Russians, so revolutionaries could get popular support for scrapping it and starting over.
