Internet rips Trump for saying Kurds didn’t help at Normandy: ‘So? You didn’t help during Vietnam’

Published

on

President Donald Trump gave a bizarre Q&A session at the White House Wednesday, in which he attacked the Kurdish people in northern Syria for not doing enough to help anyone else.

Trump justified allowing Turkey to kill the Kurds by saying that they’ve been at war for a long time anyway. He claimed that he was fine with ethnic cleansing, so long as it was done humanely.

He then went on to attack the Kurds for not being helpful during World War II, missing the history that at least 700,000 Kurds were forcibly displaced by the end of WWI. The United Kingdom helped the Kurds declare independence in 1927. Kurdish revolts were springing up throughout Turkey in the 1920s and 1930s, but to Trump, they should have been using that time to help.

The comment seems to have come from a Townhall piece by Kurt Schlichter. He calls the PKK a bunch of “commie terrorists” who aren’t friends to the U.S. The Kurds are responsible for the majority of the fighting on the ground with Syria.

Ironically, Schlichter has since changed his position.

Trump went on to claim that alliances, like the one the U.S. made with the Kurds, are “easy.”

It prompted the internet to unleash on his nonsense and mock his lack of historic perspective.

CNN reporter Erica Orden revealed on Monday that Sale would no longer be working for Giuliani. No additional details were immediately available.

Earlier this week, Giuliani's business partner resigned from their security company.

This pro-Trump pastor is now praying for impeachment after watching Republicans ‘sell their souls to the devil’

Published

A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

on

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
