Gun-toting St. Louis man investigated for sending racist threat to black teen over Facebook

Published

on

According to a report from KMOV, a St. Louis mother has reported a racist threat to the FBI that her son received  from a former friend who brandished a gun during a Facebook diatribe.

The station reports that Karel Watson said the man in the video used to be friends with her son, Duane Watson, but things have taken an ugly turn that culminated with the video where the unidentified friend brandished the gun while stating, “You know you’re a n****r.”

“To make a threat of a person’s life using it, there’s a price to pay for that and you’re going to jail and I’m not gonna let this go,” Karel Watson said, with her son adding that the friend carjacked him and had been serving time behind bars.

In the video, the ex-friend claims he “did a little time in county, but I’m back out bro”

“I’m pressing charges,” Karel Watson said. “There is nothing you can do to talk me out of it, to stop it, no. He has to learn.”

The court, which found that both Beerepoots failed to pay $930,000 in income taxes and other charges in 2017, ordered them to fork over more than $2 million after they couple tried arguing that God did not want them to pay taxes.

Trump targeted Ilhan Omar the same way neo-Nazis targeted me: Progressive comedian

Published

President Donald Trump's attacks on four progressive women of color have outraged many across the nation.

And as progressive comedian and commentator Dean Obeidallah wrote for the Daily Beast, the president's attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) we're personal for him for a very difficult reason.

"Donald Trump’s vile smear of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the hijab-wearing member of Congress, as a supposed supporter of terrorism sounded instantly familiar to me," wrote Obeidallah. "You see, Trump-loving neo-Nazis at The Daily Stormer spewed that identical type of dangerous rhetoric at me too in an effort to destroy my reputation and incite death threats. And they did it for the very same reason Trump defamed Omar, namely because both Omar and I had dared to criticize Trump."

Published

on

House Democrats still haven't used their strongest weapon to force President Donald Trump's top officials to testify before Congress -- but they insist their fight against the White House is proceeding as planned.

The Democratic majority has issued subpoenas and contempt citations the White House has ignored, but so far they haven't sued the Trump administration to make current and former officials available for questioning, reported Politico.

“Right now, we’re kind of in a wind-up phase,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), who sits on the Judiciary Committee. “When litigation is filed, then the game begins.”
