Small plane with markings reminiscent of Nazi-era Luftwaffe crashes on Los Angeles highway

Published

on

A small plane crash on the 101 highway in Los Angeles County Monday resulted in lane closures and many confused viewers who observed that it resembled a Nazi-era Luftwaffe craft.

KTLA 5 reported that the pilot of the “vintage aircraft with camouflage paint” was removed from the craft and did not sustain any injuries from the crash that occurred near Calabasas, California.

Many who saw photos of the crash on Twitter, however, noticed that the plane’s unique markings — especially the black “iron cross” with a partial white outline — made it look a lot like a World War II Luftwaffe (German for “air force”) plane.

“A plane with the markings of the WWII Nazi Luftwaffe just crashed on a Los Angeles freeway,” user Leah McElrath tweeted. “Yes, really.”

“I thought today had a lot of overwrought Nazi comparisons, but then [Luftwaffe planes] started falling out of the sky,” Jim Geraghty of the conservative National Review magazine tweeted.

Another user noted that this isn’t the first time a Nazi Luftwaffe-themed craft had crashed onto a highway, linking to a July 2017 article from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about a similar crash outside of Atlanta.

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed

Published

on

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."

Bill Barr denies giving the order to gas protesters for Trump photo-op

Published

America's top law enforcement office on Friday denied giving the highly-controversial order to gas protesters prior to a photo-op with President Donald Trump holding a Bible.

"Attorney General William Barr says law enforcement officers were already moving to push back protesters from a park in front of the White House when he arrived there Monday evening, and he says he did not give a command to disperse the crowd, though he supported the decision," The Associated Press reports.

"Barr’s comments in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday were his most detailed explanation yet of what unfolded outside the White House earlier this week. They come after the White House and others said repeatedly that the attorney general ordered officers to clear the park," the AP reported. "Shortly after officers aggressively pushed back demonstrators, President Donald Trump — accompanied by Barr, Pentagon leaders and other top advisers — walked through Lafayette Park to pose for a photo at a nearby church that had been damaged during the protests."
