Sounds absurd. But not the Russians, or North Koreans, or ISIS are doing the damage to America that the fascist right wing are doing to America. It was Trump and his allies who conspired with the Russians to undermine our Republic. It is the right wing that has given our country over to the corporations to enslave the 99 percent.
Laura Ingraham, a FOX News host, has made a career out of race baiting. Just like Trump she believes it benefit her ratings to attack black athletes:
“This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA,” Ingraham said. “And it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Oh, LeBron and Kevin, you’re great players but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach, so keep the political commentary to yourself, or, as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”
[Dwayne] Wade — who was James’ teammate on the Miami Heat and, until recently, the Cavaliers — called out both Ingraham and Trump as unabashedly racist.
“They (used) to try and hide it,” Wade tweeted, “now the president has given everyone the courage to live their truths.”
The teachers striking in Arizona have been called Democratic operatives. Masterminds of a national socialist revolution. Architects of a plot to legalize marijuana.
The backlash is fiercer than in other states where teachers have protested or gone on strike. And the comments aren’t coming from the ideological fringes of the internet. State politicians, lawmakers, and journalists are making these accusations to discredit teachers who are demanding higher pay and more funding for public schools.
A U.S. Navy veteran who reportedly told an Indian software engineer to "get out of my country" before shooting him dead and wounding two others in a bar in Kansas last year has been sentenced to life in prison, the local prosecutor said.
Under the sentence, Adam Purinton, 52, who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in March, will not be eligible for parole for 50 years, District Attorney Steve Howe said in a statement on Friday.
Johnson County District Court Judge Charles Droege also sentenced Purinton to an additional 165 months on each of two other charges stemming from the wounding of two other men, Howe said.
The February 2017 murder of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, in a bar in the Kansas City suburb of Olathe drew international attention as part of a wave of attacks across the country against blacks, Jews, Muslims and other groups following the 2016 election of U.S. President Donald Trump, who had made a crackdown on illegal immigration part of his platform.
Kuchibhotla was a legal U.S. resident as the holder of a work visa.
A sniper who targeted cars on a Georgia highway left behind a "hate-filled" document describing the Parkland high school gunman Nikolas Cruz as a hero, a sheriff said.
Authorities identified the sniper as Rex Whitmire Harbour, 26, of Snellville, Georgia. He shot at cars in Gainesville on Friday, leaving three people injured before he shot himself dead, Hall County Sheriff Gerald Couch said in a statement Saturday.
