As bad as the Charlottesville Neo-Nazis are, their lawyer might be even worse

Published

on

A Cincinnati attorney has stepped forward to defend alt-right and neo-Nazi defendants in Charlottesville, Virginia, who are facing charges of conspiracy to incite violence at their “Unite the Right” rally last year.

Speaking with Cincinnati.com, Deerfield Township attorney James E. Kolenich stated he planned to defend the white supremacists by asserting their rights under the Constitution to espouse their racist and anti-Semitic beliefs and shouldn’t be blamed for the violence that followed including the death of Heather Heyer, who was mowed down with a car by a rally participant.

Unlike some civil rights lawyers who take a case due to a belief that all defendants deserve representation, Kolenich agrees with his clients’ racist beliefs, and was up-front about discussing what he feels is the danger facing Americans from Jewish influence.

“My willingness to get involved is to oppose Jewish influence in society,” he said in an interview. “It’s plain that white people are the chosen people in the New Testament. It’s the job that we were given, to spread Christianity around the world. That doesn’t involve hatred of other races, not even of ethnic Jews. But it does involve opposing their un-Christian influence in society.”

Kolenich, who described himself as a Catholic — but refuses to recognize any Pope selected after Vatican II, which he referred to as “Vatican Jew” — claims that white people have a duty to save and protect civilization from Jews, immigrants and minorities.

According to Kolenich, his involvement in the case began because he believes Jews have a plan to destroy America by turning it into a Third-World country thanks to “mass, uncontrolled, un-white immigration.”

“If you’re going to let them all (immigrants) come up here, their problems are going to come with them, they’re not going to magically get Americanized,” explained Kolenich. “They’re going to turn it into the Third World that they left.”

According to the attorney, he is unsure how many Jews died in the Holocaust as well as suggesting that it may never have happened.

“You can’t call the Jew Holocaust into question, right?” suggested Kolenich. “How many millions, tens of millions of Russians were slaughtered during the Soviet Union… you never hear about it right? Don’t want to talk about it. Just the magic six million. So Christians really shouldn’t fall for that. The Holocaust is the execution, the crucifixion of Christ. The most important event in human history is His Resurrection, not, this Jewish Holocaust even if it did happen.”

The attorney also admitted that he is not concerned about being allied with neo-Nazis and couldn’t care less if he was called one.

“If being Christian is equated with being a neo-Nazi in this society, then that’s just how it has to be,” he said. “‘It’ (being a Nazi) is something that I would reject, all things being equal, but there’s nothing I can do about it in modern society.”

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

on

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
