Confederate flag fight leads to racist fliers targeting Mississippi NAACP official

Published

on

The president of a Mississippi chapter of the NAACP has been targeted by name in racist fliers circulated in the town of Ocean Springs, local TV station WLOX reports.

Curley Clark was named in the neon green fliers addressed to “all white people of Ocean Springs,” which were stuck to homes, mailboxes and vehicles. It laid out a wild conspiracy for “ending the white race.” The flier said that “interbreeding” and removal of Confederate monuments would be the way to do this.

The fliers directed people to a YouTube video made by Lana Lokteff, a white supremacist Russian-American based in Oregon.

The fliers also targeted “communists,” “homosexuals” and “liberals.”

The racist flier left in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

Clark said that a fight over removing the state of Mississippi’s flag, the last in the U.S. to include the Confederate battle flag’s saltire, from the city was the source of the strife.

A group called Ocean Springs United is seeking to have the flg taken down in the city, which is more liberal than most of the state.

“Our state flag is emblematic of the hate and vitriol in those flyers. We, as a community, cannot stand in agreement with racists. Criticizing the message and sharing its symbol is hypocritical. Take the flag down,” the group said.

The city’s mayor called the flier-makers “racist cowards” and asked anyone with surveillance cameras in the area to check them for images that show who delivered the fliers.

Former Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman concluded on Monday that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin must have "something" on President Donald Trump.

"The latest reporting from The New York Times indicates that the thousands of troops that we have there, that the president moved, are now trapped. They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift? How will we get the U.S. troops out?" MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked.

"We haven’t had to get troops out like this since the fall of Saigon," Sherman replied. "This is going to be very, very difficult."

Conservative pundit blasts Mattis for not speaking candidly about Trump: He ‘is not a moral hero — he is enabling the criminal to escape’

Published

on

When former Defense Secretary James Mattis announced his resignation in December 2018, many Never Trump conservatives lamented the departure of someone they saw as a voice of reason and sanity in the Trump Administration. Those Never Trumpers were anxious to hear what a post-White House Mattis had to say in an interview with NBC News’ Chuck Todd that aired on “Meet the Press” Sunday. But conservative Washington Post writer and Trump critic Jennifer Rubin, in her October 14 column, stresses that she wishes Mattis were speaking more “candidly” and frankly about his time in the White House and President Donald Trump’s foreign policy decisions.
