    National Review ^ | 11/1/06 | Byron York
    Democratic activists, Internet pranksters, rumor-mongers, and the Washington Post come together to hit the Republican candidate. ____________ In late August, a man named Mike Stark posted a plea on the popular Democratic website DailyKos.com. He was a political prankster, Stark explained, and he’d been pulling pranks on conservatives for quite a while. He had had some success slipping past Rush Limbaugh’s call screeners. He wore a monkey suit to approach George Allen and ask, “Have you ever used the word n——-?” And once, during an episode of Hannity & Colmes, he held a sign up behind Sean Hannity that said...
  • Fox News States Hundreds of White Nationalists Marched Through UVA Campus Chanting Racist Slogans

    A banner appeared at the bottom of Fox News stating hundreds of White Nationalists marched through the UVA campus chanting racists slogans. Is this true? My gut feeling is there were not more than 30-40 white nationalists at the initial rally. I base this opinion by some videos I saw of the leaders of the white nationalists meeting with their followers. The rest, IMHO, were drawn into the rally as historic monument preservationalists, etc. Also, the rally was organized by an Obama supporter, and it is still unclear to me who financed the Tiki torches, and the freshly creased Nazi...

    Franklin Graham and other evangelists are praising the godly change in a former neo-Nazi and KKK grand dragon who was recently baptized by a black pastor in Florida. Ken Parker, who just a year ago was joining other white supremacists at the so-called Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was recently profiled in a NBC News report that examined the radical change in the man's life. Parker explained his feelings of wanting to protect his race while he was a part of the Ku Klux Klan. But his attitude began to change after he met Pastor William McKinnon III...

    The Philadelphia Tribune ^ | August 17, 2018 | Raynard Jackson
    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...

    heart attack, yup. It was said by her own mother, during a live TV broadcast and there wasn’t shit the news media could do about it. It’s also exactly at that moment the media hurriedly buried it. Now, I’m no conspiracy nut either, but I do recognize it when someone’s trying to manipulate a story to push an agenda. If you try to look up the cause of death, the only thing that’ll come up will refer to the original report from the scene that day, which was just the opinion of whoever showed up and filled it out, but...

    On Saturday evening, NBC News correspondent Cal Perry and his camera crew were assaulted by a group of violent Antifa members in Charlottesville, VA. Antifa claimed they were there to promote safety during the one year anniversary of Heather Heyer’s death, but video footage shows this to be the opposite. “Protester,” NBC reporter Perry tweeted, “very aggressive with media.” Protesters very aggressive with media. #Charlottesville pic.twitter.com/CSYNyvBbeG — Cal Perry (@CalNBC) August 12, 2018 Roughly twenty minutes later, Perry posted footage of a far-left activist attacking his camera saying, “Fu**, snitch A**, B**ch F**k you.” “Fu** you, snitch ass news bitch....

    The mainstream fake-news media was as silent as a mouse after Antifa thugs showed up in full gear, including anger, at the 1 year anniversary of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, last Saturday, and did whet they’re known to do best: they attacked innocent people, and harassed journalists, including an NBC news crew. Moreover, they beat up a police officer for absolutely no reason and destroyed property. Even if zero members of the so called “far right” attended the rally in Charlottesville, approximately 200 Antifa operatives showed up. In good leftist domestic terrorist tradition, the mainstream media...

    On the one-year anniversary of the violence in Charlottesville and the killing of Heather Heyer, an anti-Nazi protester allegedly mowed down by a white nationalist, President Trump reminded us he is incapable of treating white nationalism as a singular evil — or of offending his white-grievance-obsessed base. Trump unleashed a furious backlash a year ago when he engaged in jaw-dropping moral equivalence, saying there were “very fine people, on both sides” (meaning both Nazi sympathizers and anti-Nazi protesters) and later claiming there was “blame on both sides.” Saturday, he gave the same wink to white grievance mongers, insisting on Twitter,...

    A passing thunderstorm forced the far-right demonstrators to break down their rally stage in Lafayette Park near the White House prematurely, but as police escorted them from the area, reports of Antifa resistance emerged. Some 200 anti-fascists, many of them wearing black masks, confronted police about a half-mile from the White House as officers shoved them back, The Associated Press reported.

    On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters. On Twitter, Perry was documenting the protesters as they marched through the streets of college town when they started to get “very aggressive with the media” and...

    Apprentice star-turned-spurned White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman opened a new front in her war on the West Wing on Sunday, attacking chief of staff John Kelly as a bully who drummed her out of the White House unfairly. With new prey in her talons, Manigault Newman gave voice to many of the problems that have roiled the West Wing. In a tell-all interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, she spoke in dramatic terms about the White House’s difficulties with race, honesty and loyalty, at the same time that President Donald Trump is reckoning again with criticism of his equivocal...

    Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.” Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post. He...

    On August 12, 2017, a free speech rally arrived in Charlottesville to stop the removal of the statue commemorating Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Then a group of Neo-Nazis, white knights, alt-right trolls, white nationalists, and other white supremacists showed up. They wanted to protect the statue, albeit for different reasons. Then to counter-protest the white (not “Right”) supremacists, the violent left-wing Antifa hordes with their Black Bloc goons crashed the protest, and all hell broke loose. With protesters fighting to pulverize or protect the statue of a general who had headed one side of the American Civil War, another civil...

    A march attended by Antifa to commemorate the anniversary of last summer’s Charlottesville rally devolved into an anti-police protest on Saturday night. Shortly before a pre-planned evening rally to mark the anniversary of a campus confrontation between torch-carrying white nationalists and counterprotesters, activists unfurled a banner that read, “Last year they came w/ torches. This year they come w/ badges.” “Why are you in riot gear? We don’t see no riot here,” Antifa members chanted Saturday evening. Footage of the march is circulating on social media.
