WATCH: White woman cites Trump to justify calling a Latino man a ‘rapist and animal’

Published

on

In a filmed altercation, a white woman told California man Esteban Guzman that Latinos are “rapists and animals.” After he posted the video to his Facebook, however, the website took it down for violating its community standards.

“Why do you hate us?” Guzman asked the woman, whose name has not yet been published.

“Because you’re Mexicans,” she responded.

“We’re honest people right here,” he retorted, only to have the woman laugh in his face.

“You’re rapists,” she said, “and animals.”

“Drug dealers, rapists and animals,” she repeated.

The woman then said something about “the president of the United States.”

“Do you believe everything he tells you?” Guzman asked her.

The video was republished by the groups Reforma Migratora and Progreso Legal Group on Facebook, and by Keindra Woods, the 17-year-old founder of the Hope4Humanity Project. On his own Facebook, Guzman said the video had been removed for violating Facebook’s policies.

The screenshot of the notification Guzman received reveals it was taken down for violating community standards barring “offers of sexual services, solicitation of sexual material, threats or depictions of sexual violence, threats to share intimate images or any sexual contact involving minors.”

Raw Story has reached out to Guzman and Facebook for comment.

‘Take a drink every time he says no collusion’: Social media reacts to Trump’s Orlando rally

Published

on

As President Donald Trump took the stage in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday to officially launch his 2020 campaign for re-election, numerous people all over social media expressed their thoughts on the matter.

Predictably, Trump had his fair share of online supporters cheering him on and wishing him luck defeating the evil liberals and "Floppy Joe" Biden — a new nickname Trump coined that joins the ranks of such other juvenile insults as "Sleepy Joe," "SleepyCreepy Joe," "Crazy Joe Biden," "Swampman Joe Biden," and "1 Percent Joe."

But at the same time, plenty of commentators noted some of the rally's more lacking features — as well as the president's own shortcomings as a leader and as a candidate.

I don’t feel bad for Kyle Kashuv losing Harvard: He gets a glimpse of what it’s like to be black

Published

on

Kyle Kashuv losing his admission to Harvard is the dose of reality that America needs now.

Public opinion, at least on the internet, appears to be split over Harvard’s decision to disinvite Kashuv from joining its incoming freshman class. Kashuv, 18, rose to prominence as a young conservative star after he survived the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. While many of his other classmates used the media attention to advocate for gun control, as they fought to deal with the trauma of seeing their classmates murdered, Kashuv did the opposite, becoming the high school outreach director for the conservative group Turning Point USA, lobbying for more guns in schools, and even meeting President Donald Trump.

Trump un-ironically worries a presidential candidate who refuses to concede and then shreds the constitution

Published

on

President Donald Trump officially kicked off his re-election campaign at a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida -- the 60th campaign rally of his presidency.

During the speech, Trump offered a good deal of projection as he made baseless accusations against Democrats -- on the same exact topics where he has been credibly accused.

"This election is a verdict on whether we want to live in a country where the people will lose an election, refused to concede to spend the next two years trying to shred our Constitution and rip your country apart," Trump argued.
