A female reporter for the Hill was allegedly punched by an “Antifa” protester in the wake of a deadly car attack in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday as she tried to film the ensuing chaos. Taylor Lorenz was filming the site of the incident that left at least one person dead — after a car was driven into a crowd of “anti-fascist” protesters responding to a parallel white nationalist protest in the city. The suspect was identified by police late Saturday as 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. According to video given to DailyMail.com by Lorenz (who is a former reporter for the
Soros´ fascist "antifa" thugs smashed, burned, beat, pepper sprayed and finally they found someone who wasn´t a p***y, who wasn´t "too civilized", who wasn´t willing to be pushed around and he snapped back.
Not really defending what he did, no doubt that killing folks for a "protest" is totally out of line, criminal. But when you show up with clubs, pepper spray, helmets and start beating people and smashing things - you shouldn´t be surprised if eventually you meet up with another barbarian who is willing to play by your rules, or even raise the game one step higher up the violence scale.
This is on the fascist "antifa" thugs, they started this and the driver ended it.
Unfortunately, in an indescriminate, brutal, clearly NOT self-defense way.
I have been expecting some "antifa" thug to get shot while swinging a club at somebody. They have beaten up many, and smashed and burned a lot. Police are apparently told to let them beat and destroy. They have gotten away with far too much violence and intimidation.
Not defending the driver - he was wrong, absolutely wrong. But he was egged on by these Soros-funded thugs and the racist blacks and left insisting on wiping out all vestiges of the Confederacy. That is way wrong, and very offensive to a lot of good people.
Maybe just maybe the driver felt threatened by the mob that surrounded his car and panicked. That mob looked liked hyenas who had just surrounded a prey. The msm is not interested in facts but rather a narrative which is that all of President Trump´s supporters are white supremacists. This meme will be repeated over and over and this riot will be the go to source.
Trump is right- there was violence on both sides. We don´t know the whole story of the driver. Apparently, he hit another vehicle, smashing in his front end. I wonder if we will ever get a true account of what happened.
It´s not clear that the driver was not acting in self-defense. Reports are his car was covered with dents (from baseball bats?) Given the violent history of #BLM and AntiF(irst)A(mendment) haters, I´m going to refrain from talking about so-called "white supremacists" or a "deadly car attack".
The "white nationalists" are despicable throwbacks. But I was watching a real-time report last night and the reporterette said that the antifa thugs showed up in full battle gear with weapons like signs stapled to baseball bats (dual purpose). She said it once and never again.
The "white nationalists" had a court-ordered demonstration permit. The "antifa" did not. Had they not assembled and attacked this whole horrible incident wouldn´t have happened.
The blame and shame should be equally shared by both sides. This was an old-fashioned Rumble. In 30 years will we see a Broadway musical celebrating it like West Side Story?
Former Vice President Al Gore said his one piece of advice to President Trump would be to "resign" immediately. Gore made the statement in a video interview published Thursday on LAD Bible, the United Kingdom´s largest entertainment website. He was there to discuss climate change and his new documentary, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power," which was released this month. The interviewer asked if there was "one piece of advice" for Trump, what would it be? He responded: "Resign." The interview appears to have been recorded before the premiere of Gore´s new film in the U.K. on Aug. 10. Gore´s
More evidence of the emerging No Go Zones investigated by Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam in a new book has emerged in Birmingham, England, where a message reading ‘NO Whites Allowed After 8 pm’ appeared on the side of a building in the inner-city neighbourhood of Alum Rock. The Birmingham Mail traced the graffiti to the corner of Farndon Road after the image was shared in a Facebook post — since deleted — by a page called Brumz Updates. Local councillor Ali Khan, a Labour Party representative, told the paper that similar messages had been scrawled on stickers and affixed
FOX News reports former IT aide for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Imran Awan, has been indicted on four counts. In July, Awan was arrested at Dulles airport while trying to flee the United States. (Photos) Per FOX News: Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements. The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi. The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board
The Interior Department said Thursday that it is sending tens of millions of dollars in historic preservation grants to help states preserve "our national heritage and history." The announcement comes after President Trump tweeted that he considers the statues of Confederate war heroes taken down recently in Baltimore and other cities an affront to history. Although the agency´s announcement does not highlight the Confederate statues for preservation, nor does it discuss the weekend violence in Charlottesville, Va., that sparked the move to remove the statues, it does point out the need to help communities protect historic landmarks. "These grants highlight the
A report in the New York Times that explored whether President Trump harbors racial animus interviewed several of Trump´s black friends for the story, most of whom said they never saw signs of racism. Only Democratic activist and liberal MSNBC host Al Sharpton said he sees signs of racism in Trump. The story, published Thursday in light of Trump´s comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Va., said, "more than ever, the question is being asked: Is Mr. Trump personally racist?" Among those interviewed was Kara Young, a biracial former girlfriend of Trump´s, who said, "That was not my experience" in
President Donald Trump has evoked strong criticism from politicians and pundits after telling reporters on Tuesday that there were “very fine people on both sides” in Charlottesville. But support for the president’s claim has come from an unlikely source: the “failing” New York Times, which interviewed one of those “very fine” people for an article otherwise critical of Trump, arguing that his remarks have led to a widening split in the Republican Party. The Times reported Wednesday evening: ”Good people can go to Charlottesville,” said Michelle Piercy, a night shift worker at a Wichita, Kan., retirement home, who drove all
Ald. Ray Lopez (15th) on Thursday accused President Donald Trump of emboldening vandals to set fire to a bust of Abraham Lincoln that has stood as a symbol of freedom in West Englewood for nearly a century. Lopez said Trump’s widely-condemned decision to twice blame “both sides” for the white nationalist rally that turned deadly in Virginia has emboldened haters. “When you have a President who, from his point of moral authority as leader of the free world, condones the actions of white supremacists, neo-Nazis … when he refuses to refute what their actions are — you embolden people to
Three members of Antifa were arrested Wednesday night after they tangled with Chicago police outside of a courthouse on the city´s northwest side. The "protesters" were clad all in black with black bandanas covering their faces. They claimed to be there to demonstrate against a man facing arraignment inside the courtroom, who they said had ties to "white supremacist" and "right wing" groups. But what started out as a run-of-the-mill leftist rally featuring the same, old, tired, scripted chants ("Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Neo-Nazis go away!"), ended in a melee after Chicago police showed up to try to contain the demonstration.
A new Marist poll finds that 62% of Americans believe statues of Confederate leaders should be allowed to stand. What’s more, a majority of self-identified “Soft Democrats” say Confederate monuments should remain. The survey of 1,125 adults (at least 18 years of age), conducted August 14-15, 2017 and sponsored in collaboration with NPR and PBS NewsHour, asked: “Do you think statues honoring leaders of the Confederacy should?” Results for “Independent” respondents mirrored that of all respondents, while Democrats favored removing the statues and Republicans were strongly in favor of preserving them: “Remain as a historical symbol”: Total: 62% - Democrats:
Cats can sleep for up to 16 hours a day and some freaky felines have come up with more unique ways to catch some Zs. Owners have been sharing pictures of their cats squeezing themselves into tiny spaces while they settle down for some rest. In a gallery put together by Bored Panda, cats can be seen living up to the old adage if it fits, they sit. One cheeky critter made himself comfortable in the cup of his owner´s bra, curling up in the underwear after she took it off. One cat managed to squeeze herself inside her salad
Since the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States The Gateway Pundit has been under constant attack by the liberal media, far left groups, angry #NeverTrumpers and Trump opponents. The Gateway Pundit supported Donald Trump for president as did millions of Americans. Donald Trump won more votes than any Republican in history in the GOP primary and the national election. Donald Trump won the election in an electoral landslide. Since January we have suffered significant hits in advertising. Far left groups have targeted TGP as a hate site for supporting President Trump. One of
China is providing Harvard University with $360 million that a former military intelligence analyst says appears to be part of an effort to influence one of America’s most important educational institutions. Anders Corr, a former government analyst who specializes in foreign influence operations, stated in a letter to Vice President Mike Pence that a Chinese military-linked company, JT Capital, gave $10 million to Harvard in 2014, the same year the family of Ronnie Chan, a Hong Kong real estate mogul with ties to China, announced it is giving $350 million to the university. Both donations were "relatively opaque" and raise
Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —
A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,
President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on
Former presidential candidate and current Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich may be moving closer to mounting a primary challenge against President Trump in the 2020 election. Sources close to Kasich told Willie Geist of the "Today Show" there is growing a sense of "moral imperative" to run against Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020 following his controversial statements on the deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va. (Tweet) Kasich has long been critical of Trump. On Tuesday, Kasich criticized Trump´s Charlottesville comments, saying "there is no moral equivalency to Nazi sympathizers" following Trump´s tumultuous press conference. Kasich, who lost to Trump
Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here. I´ve been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking. It is no secret that radical elements in the Democrat left have
Mitt Romney fired back at President Trump for saying “both sides” were responsible for violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend, claiming that the two clashing groups were more “morally different universes.” “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney tweeted Tuesday. (Tweet) Romney was responding to Trump’s comments Tuesday that “both sides” were to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday. Trump drew fire for saying Saturday that "many sides" were to blame for the violence at the
Some House Democrats renewed calls for Congress to impeach President Trump on Tuesday after he resorted to blaming "both sides´ for a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend organized by white nationalist groups. "POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger," said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a tweet Tuesday night. "Time to invoke the 25th Amendment." (Tweet) Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., also called on Republicans to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump. "As we once again hear Donald J. Trump defend those responsible for the deadly riot in Charlottesville
Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned President Trump on Wednesday that his “words are dividing Americans, not healing them” in the wake of the bloody clashes in Virginia that has sparked a national conversation about white supremacists and race. Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one
As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”
