Rudy Giuliani gets ripped to shreds for sharing ominous ‘ode to fascism’ video on 9/11

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani marked the 18th anniversary of 9/11 by sharing an excerpt from a clothing commercial — and other social media users recoiled in horror.

Clothing manufacturer Grunt Style — which sells “patriotic” apparel celebrating police, military and violence — produced an ad last year the company says was intended for the Super Bowl that shows a police officer marching against anti-fascist demonstrators.

“This commercial shows what we stand for,” the company says in a statement posted with the video. “We support our military. We support the police. We support everyone’s right to protest. Protest peacefully.”

The officer is shown watching coverage of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as a boy, joining the military after high school and then, after joining the police, wearing riot gear to protect himself against antifa demonstrators, who are portrayed as a violent mob.

“He has served his country and has held the line,” the company says. “He is doing so here. First protecting protesters and protecting their right to assemble, and when things turn violent, he and his fellow police officers do not run, they defend the line.”

The commercial drew conservative media attention last year with the suggestion that it had been rejected for the Super Bowl broadcast, but Grunt Style admits in the statement that it was never even submitted, and it’s not clear the company had enough money to air a commercial during the game.

Giuliani, who was mayor of New York City at the time of the attacks on the World Trade Center, posted an excerpt from the video, with the comment, “God bless America.”

The commercial’s message creeped out many other Twitter users.

WATCH: Franklin Graham tells Jeanine Pirro coronavirus pandemic is because of people sinning

Published

Franklin Graham blamed sinners for the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic during a Saturday night appearance on Fox News.

Host Jeanine Pirro noted the growing death toll and wondered how God could let that happen.

"Well, I don't think it's God's plan for this to happen," Graham said.

"It's because of the sin that's in the world, judge," he argued.

"Man has turned his back on God, we have sinned against him, and we need to ask for God's forgiveness and that's what Easter's all about," he continued.

"This pandemic, this is the result of a fallen world that has turned its back on God," he added.

Drought causing water shortage amid coronavirus crisis in Chile

Published

on

With historically low river flows and reservoirs running dry due to drought, people in central Chile have found themselves particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

Years of resource exploitation and lax legislation have allowed most reservoirs in that part of the country to run dry.

"There are now 400,000 families, nearly 1.5 million people approximately, whose supply of 50 liters of water a day depends on tankers," Rodrigo Mundaca, spokesman for the Movement for the Defense of Water, the Earth and the Protection of the Environment, told AFP.

One of the main pieces of advice to protect people against coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly.

Europe continues to bear the brunt of the epidemic, however, accounting for over 45,000 of the worldwide deaths, and Britain reported a new daily high in fatalities.

There are now more than 1.17 million confirmed coronavirus cases around the world and there have been 63,437 deaths since the virus emerged in China late last year.
