Fox News guest Wendy Osefo marked the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination on Wednesday by posting a hateful threat she received from an angry Fox viewer.

“When you are one of the few black Democrats that appear on Fox News and use your voice and platform to speak out against racial and economic injustice, this is what you receive,” she wrote of the threat on her Instagram account. “As we commemorate the legacy of MLK, we must remember that the fight for equity and equality continues. We must not fool ourselves to believe we live in a ‘post racial society’ or that the playing field is level because we elected a black president.”

The threat in question was an email that simply read, “Keep running your mouth, n*gger. Someone will introduce you to an AR-15.”

Osefo reacted defiantly to the threat and wrote on her Instagram account, “You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise.”

When you are one of the few black Democrats that appear on @foxnews and use your voice and platform to speak out against racial and economic injustice, this is what you receive. As we commemorate the legacy of #MLK50, we must remember that the fight for equity and equality continues. We must not fool ourselves to believe we live in a “post racial society” or that the playing field is level because we elected a black president. Now more than ever our lives, black lives are under attack by people and a system that views us as less than. 50 years after the death of Dr. King and we STILL have so far to go. I will always speak for the people. ✊🏾✊🏾 . . You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise.

BUSTED: Utah Republican took at least $135,000 in illegal campaign donations

Published

on

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that Burgess Owens, a former football player and Fox News commentator running for Congress in Utah, accepted at least $135,000 in illegal campaign contributions.

"Mr. Owens ... reported bringing in a staggering $2.5 million during the third quarter fund-raising period, one of the biggest hauls for a Republican congressional candidate. But a review of his campaign’s financial disclosures showed that at least $135,500 — about 40 percent of the cash his campaign currently has on hand in the final stretch — was ineligible because the donors had contributed more than the legal limit," reported Catie Edmondson. "Individuals may donate up to $2,800 to a federal candidate per election, according to limits published by the Federal Election Commission."

Donald Trump’s super-spreader campaign rallies generally don’t matter in the big picture of things. But there’s one happening this evening that’s a little different.

Trump will be taking over a ramp at 7:30 p.m. at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield. It is being billed as an outdoor event with “strong precautions” in place to prevent the spread of a pandemic disease that the main speaker will be telling his audience is fake news. And they’re hoping to draw 10,000 potential pandemic patients.

The reason Trump is in Omaha is the same one that President Barack Obama was there in 2008: a recognition that the Nebraska 2nd congressional district’s one electoral vote could literally decide the fate of the free world. Nebraska and Maine are the only two states that portion delegates in part by congressional districts.
