Published

on

A man who killed nine people in a mass shooting in Germany published a racist manifesto in which he identified as an “incel” and called for killing all non-whites in the country.

Insider reports that 43-year-old Tobias Rathjen, whom police say went on a shooting rampage in the town of Hanhau on Wednesday night, published a 24-page manifesto on his personal website that outlined his racist beliefs.

“The man calls for the peoples of a large number of North African, Asian, and Middle Eastern countries to be ‘completely destroyed’ on the basis that they are biologically inferior,” Insider reports.

Rathjen also accuses President Donald Trump of stealing his ideas.

“A billionaire in the USA is implementing my policy recommendation (even some slogans I developed like ‘America First, Buy American and Hire American’,)” the manifesto states.

On top of all this, the man identified as an “incel,” which means that he is involuntarily celibate.

Rathjen targeted minority populations during his shooting spree, and his victims were mainly people of Turkish and Kurdish descent, Insider reports.

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
