Social media users in Little Rock, Arkansas, were disturbed and outraged at a neighbor’s post, which appeared to show a mannequin hanging from a tree next to a confederate flag, reports Fox 16.
“This day of time, there’s no place for it,” Ricky Allen told Fox 16. “I saw a video of a noose, of a person of color, hanging from it. It’s kind of disturbing.”
“It’s heartbreaking to know neighbors in the neighborhood is like that,” says Allen.
Another neighbor concurred. “I saw that Rebel Flag and I found out it [was] someone near my home — it’s very disturbing,” says Sims. “It is a free country but it’s very offensive.”
But the Arkansas woman who put it up denies any radicalized intentions.
“Well, hell, I’ll take it down. This is a Halloween decoration – a Creeper. You know the movie Jeepers Creepers,” the woman told local reporters.
‘This is Alice in Wonderland upside down’: Legal expert explains how Trump’s defense breaches Constitutional Law 101
The White House continues to stonewall Congress, refusing to comply with subpoenas. On Tuesday, the president's legal counsel wrote a letter to Democratic lawmakers claiming that the president's due process was being violated and that the effort was designed to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
“Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice,” said the letter, signed by Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel. “In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the executive branch and all future occupants of the office of the presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”
White House urged diplomats to stay quiet about withheld aid to Ukraine: ‘Nothing to see here’
As Democrats proceed with impeachment, there are explosive new revelations almost daily related to President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that top diplomats were instructed to keep quiet about the temporary freeze on the $141 million package of aid to Ukraine.
“Keep moving, people, nothing to see here,” Brad Freden, the State Department’s acting deputy assistant secretary of Europe and Eurasia, said in an email.
Conservative slams ‘dull-witted’ and ‘egregiously dishonest’ Republicans who won’t stand up to Trump
A slew of damning revelations exposed Thursday show President Donald Trump has engaged in massive wrongdoing–including threatening to execute the whistleblower who lodged an official complaint over his conduct with the President of Ukraine.
Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin has been a frequent critic of Republicans who back President Donald Trump no matter what he does. But now more than ever, she writes, supporting Trump is beyond that pale.
"Republican lawmakers, conservative pundits and lawyers who argue that there is nothing of significance in the rough transcript of the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky effectively ask that we ignore the words on the page," Rubin writes.
