Gun-loving Parkland teen busted for multiple racist rants after being hired by college GOP group

Published

Kyle Kashuv, a high-school shooting survivor from Parkland, Florida who made waves by sparring with his classmates over the need for more restrictions on firearms, has issued a formal apology for making multiple racist remarks against black people.

The Huffington Post has documented multiple instances of racism by the 18-year-old Kashuv, a Parkland senior who until recently worked as a director of high school outreach for the right-wing college organization Turning Point USA.

According to the Huffington Post, Kashuv made racist remarks in “text and Skype messages” to classmates and even “in a shared Google document for a class study guide.”

In one text message to a female classmate, for instance, Kashuv described another female classmate as someone who “goes for n*ggerjocks.”

The student who received the text message tells Huffington Post that she doesn’t believe Kashuv was just trying to sound edgy with his racist remarks about black people.

“I honestly think, yeah, he’s racist against black people,” she says.

And in a Google doc for a midterm study guide, Kashuv wrote the n-word in all-caps 11 times in a row and then commented that he is “really good at typing n*gger.”

In a statement released Wednesday night, Kashuv apologized for his racist remarks, but he insisted he wasn’t really racist.

“We were 16-year-olds making idiotic comments, using callous and inflammatory language in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible,” he said.

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in Syria in less than 24 hours put American troops at risk as they were being fired on by Turkey. However, according to the Wall Street Journal , the military was also forced to bomb our own military base.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

"On Wednesday, the U.S. military said two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the American campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base," reported The Journal.

Published

On Wednesday, Politico reported that lawyers working for the House of Representatives issued a blistering court filing accusing President Donald Trump, among other things, of trying to use the power of his office to "obstruct his own impeachment."

The filing, part of the House Judiciary Committee's attempt to seek testimony from ex-White House Counsel Don McGahn, cites the White House's repeated efforts to block current and former Trump administration officials from testifying — and even some allies of Trump who have never held any position in his government.
