Georgia Supreme Court justice embarrassed after ‘awful’ video emerges of his nephew threatening to kill Black people

Published

In what many say is an example of a “climate of racism” across the city, police in Decatur, Georgia, are investigating a racist video that was posted online by a teenager, 11Alive reports.

In the video, the Decatur High School student waves a toy gun and seemingly threatens violence against African Americans as people off-camera can be heard laughing.

The video was reported to police Thursday morning by DaVena and Tony Jordan, who have two sons in Decatur schools. The couple wants to know why the teen hasn’t been immediately expelled for making a terroristic threat.

The teen’s mother is an administrator at Decatur High School and his uncle is Georgia Supreme Court justice David Nahmias. In a statement to 11Alive, Nahmias called his nephew’s actions “out of character.”

“I learned late last night about the disgusting video that my nephew made last year when he was 14 years old. Like the rest of my family, I was embarrassed and saddened by it,” the statement read. “It is simply awful and inexcusable, and it does not reflect my family’s values or what we have tried to teach our children about the importance of treating all people with respect and dignity.”

“I love my nephew, and this seems so out of character for him. I do not intend to comment further in a public way about this matter,” he continued.

His mother says her son is not racist.

“He was not making a threat but was inexcusably trying to parody people who make such threats,” Cheryl Nahmias told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

GOP senator blasted after immediately calling for vote on RBG replacement: ‘Only a ghoul would tweet something like this’

Embattled Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to move forward with a vote on whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the United States Supreme Court.

"This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court," McSally said.

McSally lost her 2018 bid for the United States Senate, but was appointed a senator anyway by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey. Polls show her trailing Democratic challenger and former astronaut Mark Kelly.

As the race is Special Election to fill a vacant seat, Kelly could be sworn in as early as November 30 if he prevails.

Mitch McConnell flattened by ex-White House official for plan to rush through Ginsburg replacement

Published

Appearing with CNN host Anderson Cooper, former White House adviser David Gergen rained hell on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) after he announced he would rush through a vote on a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just hours after it was announced she had passed away.

Gergen, who served in the White House under both Republican and Democratic presidents seemed beside himself with anger when he talked about McConnell who notoriously blocked Merrick Garland from the court after being nominated by former President Barack Obama.

"Mitch McConnell has just thrown down the gauntlet, we're going to have a titanic fight over this," Gergen exclaimed. "Yes, as Jeffrey [Toobin] has said, it will mobilize a lot of people on the right, the hunger still to overturn Roe vs Wade to get social issues on the 6-3 court, they will think Donald Trump has delivered on his promises."

Brit Hume urges Trump not to ‘put the country through this’ by replacing RBG before the election

Fox News contributor Brit Hume reacted to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by cautioning Republican leaders against replacing the liberal icon before the November election.

Hume made the remarks on Fox News after noting that both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have previously vowed to hypothetically have a nominee approved before the election.

"Lindsey Graham back in 2018... said that even if were were just into the primary season, he would not want to see a nominee advance in the election year," Hume explained. "I think the circumstances may have changed since [McConnell] outlined that."
