A racially charged confrontation in Wellington, Florida, between a man and a group of teenagers was caught on video. According to Breonna Nelson-Hicks, 15, the man followed her and her friends home.

The Palm Beach Post reports that five teens were riding in a golf cart Sunday afternoon in Nelson-Hicks’ neighborhood when the man began following them in his car and started yelling at them. At that point, Nelson-Hicks’ friend took out her cellphone and began recording.

“I don’t care if you take my picture … because you don’t belong in this development,” the man can be heard saying in the video.

Nelson-Hicks, who is black, told the man that she does indeed live there. When the man asked her where she lived, she refused to tell him.

“OK, I’m going to call the gate and have you all arrested,” the man said, adding, “You do not deserve to be in here.”

When Nelson-Hicks threatened to get her grandfather, the man appeared to continue to follow her.

“Yeah, bring him out right now, bring him out right now,” the man said, later accusing the teens of “driving illegally.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted her more conservative colleagues for barring New York state from reimposing coronavirus restrictions on religious gatherings.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4, in a late-night emergency ruling, that state officials could not reimpose limits on churches and synagogues to prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus, and Sotomayor penned a scathing dissent that was joined by Justice Elena Kagan.

"Amidst a pandemic that has already claimed over a quarter million American lives, the Court today enjoins one of New York’s public health measures aimed at containing the spread of COVID–19 in areas facing the most severe outbreaks," Sotomayor wrote.

Conservative rips GOP ‘turkeys’ for turning Thanksgiving COVID safety measures into a culture-war fight

Published

Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Tim Miller says that America should be experiencing a time of national solidarity in the midst of a global pandemic. Instead, "we have a president whose focus is entirely on his effort to perpetrate a fraud on the American public."

According to Miller, Republicans are disseminating a narrative that says coronavirus restriction should be met with a sort of "organized resistance" from individuals and businesses that feel unfairly oppressed. While everyone wants to be with their families on Thanksgiving, "one thing that most people have learned by the time they are adults is that they don’t get to do whatever they want whenever they want."

Viewers of Fox & Friends were treated to a dose of the truth on Thursday when the show admitted that President Donald Trump has "baselessly" and "falsely" claimed that the 2020 election was rigged.

The message to Fox News viewers appeared on the network's ticker graphic that is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

"President Trump phoned into a meeting organized by Republicans in Pennsylvania Wed., baseless claiming that the election was 'rigged' and falsely claiming that he won it 'by a lot,'" the Fox News ticker reported. "Most of Trump's legal efforts to challenge voting procedures in PA, MI and other states have been thrown out and his campaign has not produced sufficient evidence to back up claims of widespread voter fraud."
