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.

Former Clinton lawyer scolds Trump’s White House counsel on impeachment: ‘we never considered’ behaving this way

Published

on

On Tuesday, Lanny Breuer, a special counsel who worked for President Bill Clinton's White House, wrote an open letter in the Washington Post to President Donald Trump's White House Counsel Pat Cipollone — telling him that, while he understands an impeachment is a horrible thing for an administration to go through, Clinton and his lawyers would never have behaved the way Trump is now.

"In 1998, we felt under siege," wrote Breuer. "We argued at the time, as you do in your letter, that Congress should provide additional procedural protections to the president ... For example, instead of conducting its own investigation, the committee relied almost exclusively on [independent counsel Ken] Starr’s report, which had serious flaws. The House took only three months to adopt articles of impeachment, and we had only two days to present our witnesses. The president’s personal lawyer, David Kendall, had only 30 minutes to question Starr. We felt this was deeply unfair and a derogation of the House’s constitutional duty to investigate thoroughly whether impeachment was warranted."
