‘Cuck Spartan’: Meet the brawler who defected from alt-right upon realizing they were racists

Published

on

John Turano was one of the original alt-right brawlers, becoming a celebrity after a Berkeley rally in which he fought with Antifa while wearing a Spartan helmet and chest piece.

“I never actually felt a connection with any political person ever in my entire life,” he tells Vice in a new feature called The Rise and Fall of an Alt-Right Gladiator. “Trump was the first person I ever voted for in my entire life… He says some really bad things—and I do, too.”

We then see Turano verbally assault a woman who walks by him: “Shut up you f*cking tweaker, you tweaking-ass b*tch, you crack-headed wh*re,” he says.

But the ex-con had a realization during a Portland rally: The people around him were a collection of racists, homophobes, sexists and xenophobes.

A basket of deplorables, if you will.

And so, in a story first broken by a student newspaper in Portland, Turano defected, saying he “made a big mistake.”

The Vice feature covers Turano’s origin and change of heart.

“I’m not political, so I’ll unleash on anyone,” he says. “It’s just something that grows within me. And when it explodes, I explode…. I’ve probably been affected by this my whole life.”

The feature goes into detail about John Turano’s relationship with his daughter, Bianca Turano, who goes to the protests with him. Partly to “fight for our freedoms,” but also to keep an eye on her dad.

“I like going out to, like, help control my dad as well, because I don’t want him to, like, you know, blow up and do something he might regret,” she says. “Sometimes he gets a little crazy.”

Bianca Turano points out one of the essential ironies of Based Spartan shtick: “We’re not a racist family. I mean, my mom is an illegal alien. My dad loves all people. Like I love everybody.”

Turano eventually decided to defect. He shows off his armor, which now bears a remembrance to Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville, and the words “Cuck Spartan.”

“That means about your wife getting f*cked in front of you. I told them, ‘That is me! because holy shit I would j*ck off is she was getting f*cked,'” he says. “Anyways, everyone hates me and calls me ‘Cuck Spartan,’ so I put the cuck on.”

One of the alt-right guys who watches him, wearing a mask, trashes Turano.

“He was Antifa the whole time, bro. He didn’t change sides. F*ck that guy, he’s a total f*ggot,” the man says.

Warning: There are some extremely disturbing parts, as well as an emotional moment that may make you a little teary.

Bob Kerrey, a former Republican Senator and SEAL officer in the U.S. Navy went after the president in March demanding to see proof of the bone spurs.

Cut his mic, escort him the hearing, strip him of all committees....then make him sit a Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan's lunch table!

McConnell shuts down Trump’s demand to make Democrats testify in impeachment: ‘Mutually assured destruction’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has made his position clear on how he wants the impeachment trial to be conducted: A partisan parade of Republican-approved witnesses the Senate GOP can publicly smack down, like Hunter Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and the anonymous intelligence community whistleblower who originally filed the complaint.

According to the Washington Post, however, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has put his foot down on that idea, and has instead been urging for the Senate to call no witnesses at all — both to prevent the proceedings from becoming a circus and to prevent Democrats from being given opportunities to present evidence against the president.
