Man holding Black Lives Matter sign in ‘America’s most racist town’ gets pelted with nonstop threats and abuse

Published

A man holding a “Black Lives Matter” sign in a notorious white supremacist stronghold filmed himself getting pelted with nonstop threats and abuse for hours by passersby.

In the video, the man stands on the side of the road in Harrison, Arkansas, which has earned a reputation as a haven for white nationalist activity over the years.

Many drivers in the town who pass him by give him the middle finger, while others yell racist abuse at him.

“White pride world wide!” one driver yells at him.

“In about ten minutes, I’m going to be back and you’d better be f*cking gone!” another driver threatens him.

“What about white lives?” one woman asks angrily. “We matter too!”

“Explain to me why a coon’s life matters,” shouts a man from his car.

“Get your ass out of town, that sh*t don’t mean sh*t here!” threatens another.

“I’d be ashamed to be a white boy carrying that stupid sign,” a driver informs him.

Even though most of the video is grim, it ends on a hopeful note as a young woman wearing a face mask approaches the man and gives him a note that reads, “Ignore the haters, you’re being peaceful. What you’re doing is good — just a friendly reminder don’t give up hope.”

Watch the video below.

He encouraged his followers to engage in voter intimidation under the guise of "poll watching," and told armed hate groups to "stand by." Trump also floated a number of baseless conspiracy theories about "voter fraud" that are clearly designed to discourage voting and rationalize legal efforts to stop votes from being counted.

‘You just called me a liar!’: Trump campaign official flips out after he’s fact-checked on Biden ear-piece lie

Published

MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin attempted to fact-check President Donald Trump's campaign official, Steve Cortes, on the lies coming out of the campaign, but Cortes refused to back down, instead claiming that the host was calling him a "liar."

Cortes began Tuesday by joining other campaign members accusing Vice President Joe Biden of refusing to have his ears inspected by a third party to prove he's not wearing an earpiece. They falsely claimed that Biden agreed to it but then pulled back on the agreement. The Biden campaign has said that isn't true. So, Mohyeldin asked Cortes who made the agreement with the Biden team. Cortes fumbled around, saying it was "the campaign," but Mohyeldin demanded to know what the name was of the campaign official who made the agreement. Cortes said there was a "debate negotiating committee" who made all the demands. He ultimately couldn't name the name.
