David Hogg smeared as a Nazi brownshirt by Parkland education board member

Published

on

A member of Parkland’s Education Advisory Board, which makes recommendations about school policy for Marjory Stoneman Douglas, attacked school shooting survivor David Hogg, the Miami New Times reported Friday.

Education advisory board member Wayne Alder allegedly compared Hogg to Nazis on his Twitter account.

“Parkland. Here is your future. I won’t be wearing the Broward Brown Shirt,” Alder allegedly posted, showing a picture of Hogg with a raised fist.

“This is what happens when a town decides to back one political party, one political voice,” he also allegedly tweeted. “The tyranny of one voice that is David Hogg.”

Alder, a partner at Boca Raton’s Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck, told the Miami News Times that he’d never posted about Hogg but didn’t deny the account was his. The Times described his claim as odd, noting they had screenshots of his posts.
“I haven’t posted anything about David Hogg myself,” Alder claimed. “Not a word.”

“He has a right to say what he wants to say,” he continued. “All I say is that when anyone puts themselves in the public forum, they should expect criticism from people.”

Columnist urges Gen. Mattis to save America from Trump before trying to peddle his book

Published

on

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis appeared on "Meet the Press" Sunday to promote his new autobiography, but he refused to indicate whether or not he agrees with the president on the recent decision to allow attacks on Kurdish allies.

In a Washington Post column, opinion writer James Downie noted that Mattis "ducked" each time he was asked where he disagrees with President Donald Trump.

Mattis not only dodged questions about the U.S. and Russia, Mattis said he wouldn't "make political assessments" because the Defense Department stays outside of politics. Mattis is no longer at the Department of Defense, nor is he an active-duty soldier, so it's unclear what his excuse is.

Trump claimed US was taking custody of 5 dozen ISIS prisoners — but troops didn’t get them in time

Published

on

There was a concern that the Turkish attacks on the U.S. Kurdish allies would free dozens of ISIS fighters that were captured by those on the ground. According to the Kurds, once Turkey began dropping bombs on the area, there wouldn't be anyone who could stay to guard the prison.

The last thing the U.S. military or any allies wanted was for terrorists to be freed by Turkey's new war. But that's exactly what happened. According to the New York Times, approximately five dozen ISIS prisoners and about 700 family members and sympathizers of the Islamic State fighters "escaped a Kurdish-run camp in northern Syria as Turkish-led assault unleashes chaos."
