Neo-Nazi ventriloquist who went on racist Starbucks rampage says he’s not racist

Published

An Illinois man has been charged with a hate crime after attacking a Hispanic man at a Starbucks, Patch.com reports.

Andrew R. Angel, 44, allegedly attacked a Hispanic man who was resting in his car in the city of Countryside, southwest of Chicago.

Angel allegedly put a flier with a swastika on it on the man’s car. When the Hispanic man saw it, he followed Angel into the Starbucks and attempted to hand it back to him.

Angel allegedly “caused a disturbance inside the Starbucks” and then left, waiting for the Hispanic man outside. Angel allegedly cursed and yelled more racial slurs at the man then dared him to act by saying “what are you going to do about it?”

Angel then allegedly got into his car and peeled around the parking lot yelling more racial slurs before police showed up and arrested him.

Angel’s car was searched by police who found clothing with swastikas and Confederate flags, a Ku Klux Klan hood, white supremacist literature and a ventriloquist dummy, Patch reports.

Angel told police he was not targeting the Hispanic man and that the racial slurs were uttered because he was “singing along with a rap song.”

“I put [the flyers] on anybody’s vehicle no matter what their race,” Angel said. “The American Nazi Party accepts support from any race. I wasn’t singling him out. It’s not about white supremacy but more of a political group that shows interest in helping people with taxes and jobs.”

Angel also denied to police that he was a neo-Nazi or white supremacist. But according to Patch, the interests listed on his social media profiles include Christianity, white nationalism, ventriloquism, professional wrestling and circuses.

Angel is reportedly homeless and lives in his car. He is now banned from Starbucks pending trial.

Tucker Carlson’s ex-lead writer has a history of racist, homophobic and misogynistic social media posts

Published

on

Blake Neff, the lead writer of The Tucker Carlson Show on FOX News, resigned on Friday after CNN uncovered a trove of disgustingly racist, homophobic and misogynist social media posts that Blake published under the handle “CharlesXII” on AutoAdmit (aka. XOXOhth), a largely unmoderated message board used by lawyers and law school students.

Among Neff’s most telling posts are a reference to “foodie faggots,” a comment stating, “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down,” and another comment stating that Democratic U.S. House Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, all women of color, want to “MAKE YOUR COUNTRY A DUMPING GROUND FOR PEOPLE FROM THIRD WORLD SHITHOLES.”

Supreme Court decision on Trump’s taxes handed Democratic lawmakers a powerful new weapon: law professor

Published

on

According to a law professor writing for Politico, Donald Trump earned a small victory this past week when the Supreme Court did not allow Congress to have his tax returns that prosecutors in New York will receive, but it did set a precedent for more Congressional power over the president that can be used in further conflicts.

In her column for Politico, Kimberly Wehle of the University of Baltimore School of Law, wrote that "Congress emerged with more clarity about its oversight powers, and how to enforce them, than it had before the Supreme Court weighed in," in its 7/2 decision.

Trump campaign workers ducking wearing masks over fears of mockery: ‘You get made fun of’

Published

on

According to Politico, Trump campaign officials at the re-election headquarters in Arlington, Virginia are too embarrassed to follow the president's own CDC guidelines about wearing masks and practicing physical distancing — because the president himself has done so much to politicize the coronavirus pandemic.

"The campaign’s headquarters — located on the 14th floor of an Arlington, Va., office building that shares space with multiple businesses — is normally packed with dozens of staffers, often sitting in close proximity to conduct phone calls and other urgent campaign business, said three people with knowledge of its operations," wrote Dan Diamond. "But the office was shut down for its first deep cleaning in weeks after a senior campaign official tested positive for the virus. The decision to conduct the cleaning came after two months of flouting the Trump administration’s own public health guidance: There are no face coverings or temporary barriers between desks at headquarters, and leaders have limited efforts to implement social distancing."
