Ohio Republican compares state’s health director — who’s Jewish — to Nazis and the Antichrist

An Ohio state senator and his wife compared the state’s health director, who is Jewish, to Nazis and the biblical Antichrist.

State Sen. Andrew Brenner’s wife, Sara Marie Brenner, slurred Ohio Health Director Amy Acton for advising Gov. Mike DeWine to impose a stay-at-home order that’s been credited with keeping the state’s coronavirus outbreak largely contained.

“With a German accent, in your head say ‘Show me your papers,'” Sara Marie Brenner posted on Facebook and tagged her husband, a Republican from Powell.

Acton, who has been a target for conservatives frustrated by economic hardships resulting from the coronavirus lockdowns, endorsed issuing a certificate for those who can prove immunity to COVID-19 — which the Brenners compared to Nazi Germany and apocalyptic scripture.

“This is downright scary!” the couple posted. “You don’t issue people certificates to be able to function outside of their home. You don’t issue people a certificate to allow them to go to work. This is the mark of the beast type talk.”

“This is worse than China, for heaven’s sake,” they added. “This actually feels like Hitler’s Germany where you had to have blonde hair and blue eyes to be able to function anywhere, and you were damned otherwise. When are people going to say enough is enough?”

The lawmaker signaled his endorsement of his wife’s post by vowing “we won’t let that happen in Ohio,” in a Facebook comment.

A recent poll showed nearly 80 percent of Ohioans approved of DeWine’s handling of the pandemic, which has more than 13,000 confirmed cases and 557 deaths.

Brenner himself questioned the number of deaths in a Facebook post on his official legislative account, and called for DeWine to lift the stay-at-home order he has promised to begin easing on May 1.

“Deaths unrelated to coronavirus, generations of businesses and wealth destroyed, depression, suicide, domestic violence, children malnourished, people dying alone … this is why we must reopen Ohio,” Brenner posted. “The cure is far worse than the virus at this point.”

‘Get the hell out!’: Trump supporters freak out when protesters show up to Lindsey Graham event

Published

on

A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."

Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again

Published

on

When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.

While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.

"What made you say it?" the men asked.

The white guy shrugged.

"You that racist?" one of the men asks.

"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.

"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.

Lamar Alexander refuses to stand against Trump Supreme Court choice

Published

on

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is an outgoing Senator but he is firmly supporting President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In a statement released Sunday, Alexander claimed that the so-called "McConnell Rule" doesn't count because the Senate and the White House is ruled by Republicans. The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.

"Senator McConnell is only doing what Democrat leaders have said they would do if the shoe were on the other foot," said Alexander.
