Trump Threatens To Arrest And Jail Protesters Who Topple Statues

President Trump threatened anti-racism protesters on Tuesday morning, in what has become a common refrain for a president who brandishes a show a force at signs of dissent. This time, sounding off on Twitter to warn that protesters who attempt to vandalize or tear down statues of historical figures – many of whom have links to white supremacy – would be subject to arrest. I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such F...

IN Councilman Apologizes After Bemoaning That ‘Uneducated’ Protesters ‘Unfortunately Breed’

To be clear: I have absolutely no sympathy for the selfish so-called "protestors" who are being irresponsibly cheered on by the President to "re-open the economy" and endanger millions of American lives. While I can understand economic stresses and concerns about an overreaching government, I simply cannot abide by a movement that was literally organized by nihilistic white nationalists bankrolled by greedy right-wing donors who want other people to die in order to boost a bunch of inherently ho...
