Soldier-turned-hate music promoter among eight neo-Nazis charged in attack on bar’s DJ

Published

A group of neo-Nazis were charged in a racist attack on a bar’s DJ after he refused a request.

Investigators said the group, which included the head of the hate music label American Defense Records, hate group patches, jackets and other paraphernalia at the Rec Room Tavern in Lynnwood, reported the (Everett) Herald.

One of them approached the DJ about 12:40 a.m. Saturday and ordered him to play heavy metal music, but the black man said he queued up Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden and went outside to smoke a cigarette.

When he returned, the DJ said, the group shouted racial slurs, announced the Nazi salute was still alive and violently attacked him.

The DJ suffered a swollen eye and other injuries, and the bar’s Asian-American manager said he was struck in the temple with what felt like brass knuckles.

The assailants fled when witnesses started calling 911.

Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies pulled over a white Toyota Tundra with Oregon license plates a half mile away, and they found six people wearing clothing with neo-Nazi themes.

They arrested Randy Smith, 38, of Eugene, Oregon, and former U.S. Army Spc. Travis Condor, 34, who runs a hate music label from a Pittsburgh apartment.

Condor was photographed last year at the violent Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

They also took into custody driver Cory Colwell, 34, of Eugene; Leah Northcraft, 25, of Raleigh, North Carolina; Daniel Dorson, 23, of Corvallis, Oregon; and Nathaniel Woodell, 32, of Woodstock, Illinois.

Deputies arrested Guy Miller III, 37, of Tacoma, and Vincent Nutter, 28, of Bothell, Washington, as they fled in a separate car.

Nutter, who has served prison terms for drug- and gun-related crimes, was charged with drunken driving.

Nearly everyone in the group wore patches for the Crew 38 support group for skinheads in the Hammerskin Nation, one of the nation’s most widespread hate groups.

The most notorious Hammerskin was Wade Michael Page, who killed six people at a Sikh temple in 2012.

Condor, the Army veteran, was sentenced to 90 days in jail after he and a group of veterans and active-duty soldiers brutally beat a homeless man at random in Cincinnati back in 2010.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

on

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
