Crazy old racist man in Kentucky attacks his neighbor with a weed-whacker

Published

on

An older Kentucky man who has been the subject of dozens of 911 calls has most recently been the perpetrator of an alleged weed-whacker attack on his neighbor he has a history of disputes with.

Louisville’s WDRB reported that Thomas McMullan “looks like he fought with an animal and lost” after his neighbor, 67-year-old Larry Haynes, took a weed-whacker to his shoulder. Over the last four years, their increasing property-line disputes have resulted in 40 phone calls to local police, though the report noted that Haynes is the subject of at least 19 others from unrelated incidents, most from previous neighbors.

The 36-year-old father recorded cell phone video of Haynes attacking him, which he believed was related to debris left from fireworks he shot off on the 4th of July.

“Haynes pauses, then looks up and brings the [weed-whacker] blade toward the camera,” WDRB’s report read. “You can hear the contact and see the camera shake as the lawn-trimming device is hoisted toward the top of the fence.”

“Call the police,” McMullan said in the video. “He just attacked me with the f*cking weed eater.”

Independence Day, the report noted, appears to be something of a “trigger point” for Haynes. In July 2016, McMullan captured his aging neighbor shouting “your wife sucks n*gger d*cks” at him while taunting party-goers and trying to get them to cross over onto his property.

“He pulled a gun over trash in his yard for fireworks with eight kids in my yard,” Amanda McMullan, Thomas’ wife, told WDRB of the 2016 incident. “I had it all on video, and [police] did nothing. It was dismissed.”

Haynes’ family consistently defends him, portraying the most recent incident and all those that came before it as “accidents” and their relative as “innocent.” According to Bullitt County Chief Deputy Mike Cook, however, this incident presents much clearer evidence than the “he-said, she-said” instances Haynes was involved in in the past.

“It’s never been taken seriously by the courts,” McMullan told WDRB. “That just makes him think even more he can do whatever he pleases around here without any consequences.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.

2020 Election

Here’s how Trump hopes to recreate his 2016 presidential win — and how Democrats can send him packing

Published

on

Writing for CNN on Saturday, election forecaster Harry Enten explained how President Donald Trump's recent, racist behavior lies in his desire to recreate the same electoral conditions that gave him a victory in 2016 in the presidential election next year.

"The Trump strategy is pretty simple: 1. Drive up the unfavorable ratings of his Democratic rival as he did in 2016 in order to compensate for his own low ratings. 2. Bank on an electoral college/popular vote split as he did in 2016. 3. Use a campaign of racial resentment to drive up turnout even more among groups favorable toward the President," wrote Enten. As he noted, Democrats have excellent odds to flip back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but they will have to work harder to win back any of the other states Trump flipped from the 2012 Obama camp — in particular Wisconsin, which was the closest state after those two.
