Nazi Christmas ornaments and KKK robes sold openly at Kentucky gun show

A gun show in Kentucky has come under fire after allowing the sale of Nazi memorabilia and a Klansman’s robe, reports WAVE 3.

The event happened at National Gun Day which was held at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville.

Among the vendors was Florida’s Walter Kanzler Guns and Militaria, which features a Nazi hat with a swastika on its homepage.

Among Walter Kanzler’s offerings were World War II Christmas ornaments that featured swastikas, which were for sale on the same day that an anti-Semitic gunman killed 11 at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The Klansman’s robe was for sale not far from the Louisville-area Kroger where two black shoppers were killed in what appears to be a racist attack.

The Courier Journal showed the Kentucky State Fair Board photos of the memorabilia, which is now eyeing a ban on Nazi memorabilia.

“The most upsetting part is what the meaning of these symbols have and to allow those to be sold on Kentucky Venues property when I’m chairman of the board, I really find that offensive to myself as well, it’s just not right,” said the board’s chairman Dr. Mark Lynn said.

Reached for comment, Walter Kanzler said there’s “no political agenda” and that it represented an “interest in history.”

Melania Trump scorched by columnist for standing by president’s Thunberg bullying: ‘Indefensible’

Published

In a piece for the Washington Post, columnist Karen Tumulty called out first lady Melania Trump for her statement defending her husband's bullying of 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg in a fit of jealousy after she was selected Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Responding to a statement from the White House that stated, “BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Tumulty wasn't having it.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

on

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

After watching the disgraceful way that a wonderful man, @BrettKavanaugh, was treated by the Democrats, and now seeing first hand how these same Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems are treating the whole Impeachment Hoax, I understand why so many Dems are voting Republican!
