Racist man flies into berserk rage after seeing black Denny’s worker — then things get really ugly

Published

on

A Washington man attacked a black kitchen worker on sight at a Denny’s restaurant — and then fought with police officers trying to arrest him.

The black cook said he went to a corner of the restaurant to take his break, and a customer — later identified as Rory French — immediately began using racial slurs against him, reported The News Tribune.

The employee went back to the kitchen to get away from the angry man, who continued taunting the cook.

“You are going down, I am going to kill you,” French allegedly said — punctuating each threat with a racial slur.

Another customer stepped up to stop the 41-year-old French, who punched the man three times before other customers wrangled him by the straps on his overalls, the newspaper reported.

Customers held French by his overalls until Pierce County sheriff’s deputies arrived, and the good Samaritan returned to his chicken-fried steak breakfast.

A deputy tried to distract French so he would turn around to be handcuffed.

“Hey, what’s that?” the deputy said, pointing out a window behind French.

“That’s a n*gger,” French said, without turning around.

Deputies moved to arrest French, who then raised his fist.

“He still wasn’t cooperative and assaulted one of our officers — and the fight was on,” said detective Ed Troyer.

Deputies took the Graham man to the ground, but French continued to resist their efforts to put him in neck hold.

The struggle continued until a deputy kneed French in the shoulder, and they were able to place him in handcuffs.

French, who has prior convictions for assault, was charged with a hate crime, malicious harassment, assault and resisting arrest.

“He was actually going after somebody because of their race,” Troyer said, “but then it became a fight with anybody and anything.”

Cory Booker planning to suspend his campaign if his fundraising does not improve: report

Published

on

On Saturday, NBC News reported that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has released a campaign memo indicating he will exit the Democratic presidential primary if he is unable to raise millions of dollars within days.

"Without a fundraising surge to close out this quarter, we do not see a legitimate long-term path forward," wrote campaign manager Addisu Demissie in the memo to staff ersand supporters. "The next 10 days will determine whether Cory Booker can stay in this race."

The memo added that it is likely that only four candidates presently have enough money to stay in the race for the long haul. These candidates are likely former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who report the largest fundraising hauls.

Trump snarls at press for pursuing Ukraine phone call complaint instead of reporting on debunked Biden story

Published

on

Donald Trump lashed out at the media for pursuing the story of a suppressed inspector general's report that he may have made an illegal promise to the president of Ukraine, saying they should be investigating former Vice President Joe Biden instead.

Taking to Twitter, the president wrote: "The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, want to stay as far away as possible from the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money, so they fabricate a..... story about me and a perfectly fine and routine conversation I had with the new President of the Ukraine. Nothing was said that was in any way wrong, but Biden’s demand, on the other hand, was a complete and total disaster. The Fake News knows this but doesn’t want to report!"

The new Rambo movie is essentially a MAGA fever dream of bigotry

Published

on

"Rambo: Last Blood," the latest in the long-running franchise about a traumatized war veteran (Sylvester Stallone) turned on-demand badass, is less an escapist action movie and more a dramatized manifestation of the most notorious sentences from Donald Trump's presidential campaign announcement speech: "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." Even for a series that has always been shaped by a right wing worldview, the only reason for this latest sequel to exist — besides generating profits from die-hard Stallone fans — is to validate MAGA-world bigotries about Mexicans.This article first appeared in Salon.
