White Supremacist plans second ‘Unite the Right’ rally — but none of his racist friends want to go because they ‘suffered’ too much

Published

White Supremacist Jason Kessler, helped organize the ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in the summer 2017, and is in the process of planning a second riot.

However, Kessler has one huge problem — nobody wants to come, according to the Independent.

“We don’t have anything to gain by going back to Charlottesville,” Michael Hill, President of League of the South said.

According to Newsweek, Richard Spencer and Brad Griffin announced that they would not attend.

ALT-Right podcaster, Mike Peinovich, said he would not attend in order to stay away from “antifa thugs.’

Peinovich said:

“I have no plans to attend this rally, nor am I involved in any of the planning. I was not involved in the planning of the last event either, just an invited speaker. After the unfortunate events and the violent attacks, we suffered, I am reluctant to return to Charlottesville. I hope the event, if it happens, is peaceful and that Antifa thugs do not disrupt it with violence as they did the last one.”

Kessler, is also having location issues. He has tried unsuccessfully for months to obtain a permit from Charlottesville to return for a second protest.

The city of Charlottesville denied his request for a permit due public safety concern.

Kessler claimed that if Charlottesville wouldn’t let him return that he would take his hate to the White House.

“If Charlottesville denies our permit for any reason, it’s not safe, we’re going to get in vans and we’re going to go to Lafayette Park in front of the White House,” Kessler said.

Kessler filed a lawsuit back in March against the City of Charlottesville with claims that their denial violated is 1st and 14th Amendment rights.

More recently, white supremacist Jacob Goodwin was found guilty for beating a black man during the riots.

Neil Gorsuch & the four liberal Justices just gave away half of Oklahoma, literally.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace chuckles after Times reporter explains why Trump has no hope of pivoting to an empathetic campaign

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace struggled to stifle a chuckle in a conversation about President Donald Trump's struggle to run a campaign that can contend with most Americans' needs in a horrific pandemic.

"I think to Nick [Confessore's] point earlier, there should be a sense of nervousness in Trump's camp," began Democratic strategist Basil Smikle. "You don't see -- you talked about enablers. You don't see Republicans engaged in their behavior with respect to the president at this juncture. You're starting to see them not nationalize he's the president of the United States. They should be more allied with him, but instead, they're focused on local campaigns. The president has lost several cases at the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act case notwithstanding. There's a lot of things they should be rallying around, but they can't."

Here’s how bad things are for Trump after the Supreme Court ruling: columnist

Published

on

In a piece for Vanity Fair, columnist Eric Lutz addressed the degree to which President Donald Trump is in trouble after the ruling by the Supreme Court on his financial records.

Trump has spent the better part of four years fighting any transparency about his finances and taxes, which many have suspected might reveal illegal activity.

"He's not going to release his tax returns," said senior adviser Kellyanne Conway in 2017. "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care."
