Watch: Racist white Chicago Cubs fans attack Hispanic man in bleacher brawl — security takes Hispanic man away

Published

on

Fans of the Chicago Cubs have a long history of racist antics, from t-shirts deriding Hispanic opponents as their lawnboys to attacking their own black players.

The team’s fanbase is defined from its cross-town rival by redlining and it’s been argued that the “curse” that left the team losing for so many decades was actually just racism, as the owner refused to field black ballplayers, limiting the team’s ability to compete.

The team owner has close ties to President Donald Trump, and was rumored to even be joining his cabinet and is now a senior agent of the Republican National Committee.

And yet, an ugly incident after last night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates is still shocking.

In a video posted to Twitter, several white men attack two men of color and then call one a “f*cking spic.”

It’s unclear what provoked the conflict, but the Hispanic men were taken away by security as the white man continued to hurl racist slurs.

“Yeah, take the f*cking white people’s side! F*ck that!,” the Hispanic man said as he was lead away.

“Beaners! Spics!” yelled the white man who was allowed to remain in his seat.

“Don’t record me!” he screams once he realizes he is on video.

The white man involved in the fight and what appears to be Wrigley Field security then advance on the person recording his racist rant.

Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with ‘thin-blue-line’ flag

Published

on

Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.

During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.

While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.

WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops

Published

on

Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.

Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.

"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.

Trump could use Antifa conspiracy theories to ‘investigate his political opponents’: Ex-FBI assistant director

Published

on

According to former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi, there are far more white supremacists and anti-government agitators infiltrating the peaceful Black Lives Matter protests than Antifa. He fears Trump will use Antifa as an excuse to investigate his political opponents.

Speaking to MSNBC on Sunday evening, Figliuzzi told host Brian Williams that his sources in law enforcement are telling him that President Donald Trump doesn't have his facts straight on Antifa.

"We're seeing components of legitimate frustrated protesters responding to Mr. Floyd's demise and others," explained Figliuzzi. "Then we are seeing people who are exploiting this for their own purposes, and some of them are more than just opportunistic criminals. Some of them are organized, and some of them have diverse agendas but are coming together to wreak havoc. And I think what we need to pay attention to here is what we have evidence of, what we don't have evidence of, and what we're hearing from the White House and the attorney general."
