Florida Republican running for judgeship busted for Facebook attacks on Muslims and ‘eternally damned’ gays

Published

on

Family law attorney, Donald McBath, is running for Pinellas-Pasco circuit judgeships despite his track record of racist and homophobic beliefs.

McBath, has tweeted “never trust a Muslim,” and “Muslims are deranged!!!!”

He also wrote on Facebook: “If the homosexuals continue committing that sin of sodomy, his soul faces ETERNAL damnation. Abstain, if you really have that mental illness. It’s not love.”

McBath, stands by what he wrote on social media, but said that his views do not influence his politics.

“I absolutely can still be fair no matter what kind of beliefs that I may have,” he said in an interview with the  Tampa Bay Times. “We all have our own personal beliefs based on what happened in our lives, and as long as it doesn’t interfere with how we treat a person, that’s the goal.”

Stetson University College of Law professor Louis Virelli III said that people should be hesitant to vote for McBath, and notice the warning signs.

“It’s a terribly bad form to elect a judge who has committed to strong negative feelings about an entire segment of the population that he or she is going to be responsible to administer justice to,” Virelli said.

He continued: “It is going to put a strain on the system,” said Virelli. “I can’t imagine a Muslim litigant or lawyer would not take seriously the prospect of a recusal motion if these statements are true and if they reflect the judge’s thinking, and there’s no reason to believe that they don’t.”

When asked to provide details about his social media post, and why he believes people should not trust Muslims, McBath, declined to comment.

“I can’t really go into detail in regard to those comments that were made from a personal standpoint,” he said.

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
