‘Crying Nazi’ threatens more violence after conviction of Heather Heyer’s killer: An ‘army of fanatics willing to die’

Published

on

The notorious white supremacist nicknamed the “Crying Nazi” defended James Fields as an “innocent man” after he was convicted of murdering Heather Heyer at the deadly “Unite the Right” rally.

Christopher Cantwell, who was also charged for his role in the Charlottesville alt-right gathering, lashed out at the “left” following the conviction.

“Charlottesville and the broader Left celebrate prematurely tonight,” Cantwell wrote on the alt-Right social media platform Gab. “The show trial and CONviction (sic) of James Fields is merely a symbolic victory for you, which you’ll forget in short order. He was not an intellectual leader or military necessity.”

“It is likewise symbolic for us. We lost nothing, but we will never forget. Knowing that any of us could be next, it will drive us toward your complete and total destruction, as a matter of necessity for our very survival,” he threatened.

“The next Dylann Roof, the next Robert Bowers, he’s not going to go out blasting and be out of the fight. You are creating an army of fanatics who are ready to die, but the ones who are listening to me, are going to put in the massive amounts of unpleasant work, that will be required to make sure history treats you worse than it did Hitler,” he continued.

“If he was found not guilty, he could have been a sign of hope for our justice system, and peaceful solutions to our problems, and lacking those signs is a pain I would rather not suffer,” he added.

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade

Published

on

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he might deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House. But legal experts who spoke with Bloomberg warned that might not be a good idea.

The publication described the proposal as "a minefield of problems for the staff charged with putting such an event together."

The Hatch Act forbids the use of government property and employees for political activities. Although the president and vice president are exempted from the federal law, their staff at the White House could face repercussions.

Controversial ‘Hookers for Jesus’ group to get more federal money as Bill Barr and Ivanka Trump announce anti-sex trafficking effort

Published

on

The Las Vegas-based group Hookers for Jesus has won a grant from the Justice Department less than a year after whistleblowers raised red flags about federal funds being awarded to the organization, Reuters reports.

The complaint from union officials says the group, which is run by a born-again Christian survivor of sex trafficking and operates a safe house for adult trafficking victims, got its grant due to political favoritism.

A previous Reuters report revealed that the group required residents of the safe house to go to church, complete Christian homework, and banned them from reading “secular magazines with articles, pictures, etc. that portray worldly views/advice on living, sex, clothing, makeup tips.” As Reuters points out, recipients of federal funds are not allowed to use the funds to promote religion.
