Trump-loving pastor resigns from school board after raging about racial mixing and ‘white genocide’

Published

on

A school board member in Harrison, Maine has resigned from his post after the revelation of social media posts criticizing minorities and Muslims.

The Bangor Daily News reported Monday that Robert “Bob” Celeste, a member of the RSU 17 school board in Western Maine, claims his resignation “had nothing to do with the fools that say, ‘That’s racist.’”

“They can’t even define ‘racist,'” the board member who once posted a meme that depicted a white mother warning her daughter to not “betray her race” said.

After the Islamic State took credit for a terrorist attack in Paris, France in 2015, Celeste shared a post that appeared to threaten Muslims.

“To all Muslims,” the post read. “The USA has the highest concentration of Armed Christians in the world, just in case you forget.”

When speaking to the Daily News about his resignation, the erstwhile school board member said that “born-again Christians should not be putting their kids in a public school,” and that students in Maine schools are taught “lies,” including that “that racism is anyone that disagrees with Islam.”

In an interview published soon after the revelation of his posts, Celeste blasted schools that would cater to “the nonbelievers, the Jews and everyone else.”

“Is there anything wrong with protecting the white race?” Celeste mused.

Along with serving on the Western Maine school board, Celeste is also the “senior pastor” at ChristianPatriot.com. A perusal of his Facebook page reveals a number of posts made in admiration of President Donald Trump. He also regularly shares posts from fringe right-wing sites including Breitbart, and appears to be a proponent of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.

Trump’s ‘craziness’ will drive Mexico to find other sources of soybeans — permanently hurting US farmers: Ex-diplomat

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.

Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-IL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
