Michigan pastor rants about female genital mutilation in racist email to Asian NYT reporter

Published

A pastor from Macomb Township, Michigan has apologized for sending a racist email to a New York Times reporter that included a rant about female genital mutilation.

Click On Detroit reports that the Rev. Dave Muns decided to send New York Times reporter Sarah Jeong an angry email after he read a series of quotes that were falsely attributed to her in a viral social media meme.

Among other things, the meme falsely accuses Jeong of advocating for a “castration lottery” for white men, which is something she has never said.

This was enough for Muns to send Jeong a racist screed over email.

“How about if we took all the little bitter Asian woman and had a lottery and cut their clits like the Muslims do,” he wrote. “Not a very classy position is it, neither is your trashy little bitter personality towards white men. Only in a world where journalism is controlled by brain dead Liberals do you people even have jobs.”

Muns told Click On Detroit that he regrets sending the email, and that he plans to apologize to Jeong for insulting her on the basis of phony quotes.

“Should I have responded? Probably not, but in light of the summer we’ve had, all that’s going on, I just caved,” he explained.

The letter and a 60-page report, written by FEC campaign analyst Susan Worthington to McConnell’s Senate Committee, were sent to McConnell’s campaign treasurer, Larry J. Steinberg on Monday. The committee pointed out “Apparent Excessive, Prohibited, and Impermissible Contributions” regarding donations recorded in McConnell’s July quarterly report that suggests multiple contributions may have exceeded the legal limits.

Fox News analyst slams Trump for visit to Ginsburg’s casket: ‘Maybe it’s to get the boos’

Published

Fox News analyst Chris Stirewalt was bewildered on Thursday after President Donald Trump showed up at the Supreme Court to pay his respects to former Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

As Trump appeared next to Ginsburg's casket, the crowd could be heard jeering the president.

"I don't know why he went," a confused Stirewalt said. "He didn't go to John Lewis' memoriam. He wasn't there for that stuff. And for good reason. Right? These people don't want him there. Ruth Bader Ginsburg's folks don't want him there. It's going to be an ugly scene."

"I guess, he's the president. He can go where ever he wants," the Fox News contributor added. "And he has security so that he can go do it. But you just wonder what the political calculation was here in going to a place where you know you will be received poorly, going to a place where you know the folks there don't want you to be."

BUSTED: ‘Real people’ in pro-Trump Facebook testimonials are actually Republican operatives

Published

on

On Thursday, Gizmodo revealed that many of the Trump supporters identified as "real people whose lives have been positively impacted by President Trump’s policies" in the president's Facebook ads are actually Republican candidates and operatives.

"Take this ad that is currently running on Facebook," reported Matt Novak. "It shows Kim Sherk, who’s not identified by name in the ad, and yet is the president of the Georgia Federation of Republican Women. A Georgia newspaper, the Marietta Daily Journal recognized Sherk, which might be why these ads are running in states like California, Illinois, and Mississippi, according to the Facebook ad library, rather than her home state of Georgia ... the ad never identifies Sherk as a political operative, let alone one who’s visited the White House, as we can see from a photo posted to the Cobb County Republican Party website."
