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

Published

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.”

COVID-19 cases skyrocket among younger Americans as states reopen

Published

on

The coronavirus is tearing into a new demographic as states relax social distancing guidelines.

Younger Americans have gone back to work in the service industry and congregating in public, and their activity seems to be bearing out ominous predictions from public health experts, reported The Daily Beast.

“Watch what’s happening before and after the peak,” said epidemiologist Dr. Judith Malmgren, of the University of Washington’s school of public health. “The disease didn’t change, but the people who were infected changed.”

Trump’s confederacy-loving fans accused of treason in brutal new Lincoln Project ad

Published

on

In another no-holds-barred ad from the Lincoln Project -- headed up by Republicans Rick Wilson, George Conway and Steve Schmidt -- Donald Trump is linked to the Confederacy and, by extension, treason against the United States.

The ad notes the prevalence of the Confederate flag at Trump rallies -- some even bearing his name -- and notes, "The men who followed this flag 150 years ago knew what it meant: Treason against their country. Death of the United States,” in the voiceover.

With clips showing the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, the ad goes on to ask, "What does it say that they’re all in for Trump?"

It wasn’t just Derek Chauvin who crushed the life out of George Floyd — it was the force of American history

Published

on

Encouraging police brutality and other forms violence is one of Donald Trump's favorite things to do.

In a 2017 speech, Donald Trump told police: "Please don't be too nice" to suspected criminals.

Predictably, Trump's administration has systematically removed civil rights protections designed to hold America's police accountable for acts of brutality and other crimes against the public.

On Memorial Day, Donald Trump's wish came true (again).

George Floyd was detained by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and three of his colleagues on suspicion of using a forged $20 bill to make a purchase at a local convenience store.
