WATCH: Racist Trumpkin Gets Publicly Shamed For Calling 5-Year-Old Girl A ‘Terrorist’

You’ve probably never heard of John Turano. He’s one of the many Trump-worshiping idiots who prowl the streets of this country and feel they have the right to scream whatever insult comes to mind, even if that invective is hurled at a child.

In the video below, which is going viral, a woman approaches three Trump supporters in Los Angeles and tells them:

“You called my 5-year-old cousin a terrorist.”

The woman, named Rawan, and her cousin, are Palestinian-American. To them, Turano replies:

“Looks like one. It doesn’t matter what age you are.”

Rawan then tells Turano:

“You’re calling a 5-year-old a terrorist.”

Turano’s smug, moronic daughter, Bianca responds:

“But this is America, we can say whatever we want. Freedom of speech.”


Later in the video, John Turano tells the woman and her little cousin to suck his dick as his equally disgusting daughter adds:

“You guys are terrorists, get out of here. If you hate America so much leave.”

A boy with Rawan and her cousin then shouts at Daddy Turano:

“I don’t hate America — I just hate [inaudible] fucks like you!”

Donald Trump has emboldened assholes like John and Bianca Turano. Trump has given them cover to be as offensive as they want because some of the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville earlier this year are “very fine people,” according to the president.

Trump and many of his supporters are cancers on this country that need to be excised as soon as possible.

WATCH: Racist Gun Store Owner Refuses To Sell To Black Man – Because He Might Be A Criminal

The NRA and their minions who say they support the right of every American to own a gun apparently have a major problem with African-Americans joining their ranks.

If you want proof, look no further than Hopkins Gun & Tackle in Richmond, Virginia. Chris King Mason, a black man, went into the store and was almost immediately refused service. As Mason wrote on Facebook, where he also posted a video of the encounter with the store owner:

“The owner of this store refused to sell me any firearms. His reason was simply and I quote ‘I will not sell you or your friend any firearms because my reason to believe is that you will sell them to someone else.’ At first, I presumed that he wasn’t serious because I am a regular customer, until he stood by his decision not to sell me anything and ask that I remove myself from the store.”

When Mason tried to reason with Hopkins, he was threatened. Hopkins said he would call the cops:

“We have to follow all federal guidelines and we’re not gonna sell you a gun. And if you don’t go ahead and leave the premises I’m gonna call the police.”


Mason then commented directly on the video he was filming with his cell phone:

“So I just walked in Hopkins Gun & Tackle and before I could say anything this man right here said he would not sell me a firearm. And his reason? What’s your reason again? You don’t need a reason?”

Here’s a bet I’m more than willing to make: I bet $100 that if Mason had been white, Hopkins would have sold him as many guns as he wanted.

In America, where green is the only color that should matter, there’s still plenty of morons who are still hung up on black and white.

Here’s the video:

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller (VIDEO)

Ever since the investigation into the 2016 election began, President Trump has steadfastly maintained that he isn’t personally under investigation.

Shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed earlier this year, Trump said former FBI Director James Comey had assured him he wasn’t part of the counterintelligence investigation being conducted by the FBI. And while that may be true in regard to counterintelligence, Comey didn’t offer any assurances that Trump wasn’t under criminal investigation.

And on Monday, just hours after indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates were unsealed in Washington, the president was on Twitter trying to distract from the growing scandal:

And yet, when White House Chief of Staff John Kelly appeared on The Ingraham Angle Monday evening, he clearly suggested that his boss is indeed being investigated, telling the host:

“It’s very distracting to the president, as it would be to any citizen, to be investigated, while at the same time trying to carry the weight of what it means to be president of the United States on his shoulders.”


If that’s not confirmation, what exactly is?

As for Kelly’s whining that it’s an added “weight” on Trump to know he’s under the microscope while trying to do his job, all I can say is BOO FREAKING HOO! If he can’t handle the pressure, maybe he needs to step aside and let a legitimately elected person run the country. Someone like Hillary Clinton, who got nearly 3 million more votes than the Orange Menace.

Also, Trump made a choice to associate with unsavory characters like Manafort and Gates. He appointed Michael Flynn to one of the highest positions in the administration despite the fact that he was on the take from both the Russian and Turkish governments. You know the old saying: You are the company you keep.

So here’s a bit of advice for Trump and Kelly: No one wants to hear your pathetic whining. And we don’t believe any of your lies.

Here’s Kelly on Fox News:

Former NFL Coach Mike Ditka On Anthem Protests: There’s Been ‘No Oppression In The Last 100 Years’

Former Chicago Bears head coach and player Mike Ditka simply cannot understand why some NFL players feel a need to kneel during the national anthem as a way to bring attention to discrimination against African-Americans. After all, Ditka maintains, there hasn’t been any oppression in the United States for the past 100 years.

Ditka was interviewed by Jim Gray on Westwood One, and the vocal Trump supporter sounded like he’d just gotten his talking points and marching orders from the White House:

“I think that you have to be color blind in this country. Have you got to look at a person for what he is and what he stands for. And how he produces. All of a sudden it’s become a big dealing now about oppression. There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of.”

No oppression in the last 100 years? Really, Mike? How about these facts that you conveniently overlooked:

  • In the South, an estimated two or three blacks were lynched each week in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In Mississippi alone, 500 blacks were lynched from the 1800s to 1955. Nationwide, the figure climbed to nearly 5,000.
  • Until 1965, blacks could not vote in most Southern states.
  • There was once a time in this country when African-Americans were forced to use separate bathroom facilities, go to woefully inadequate public schools, and ride at the back of buses.


The 77-year-old Ditka then added:

“I don’t care who you are, how much money you make. If you don’t respect our country, then you shouldn’t be in this country playing football. Go to another country and play football. If you can’t respect the flag and the country, then you don’t respect what this is all about. So I would say adios.”

Hey, Mike, are you aware that the flag you worship so much is nothing but a piece of cloth? It seems the flag and the anthem are being made into idols for us to all worship, which is complete bullshit. The Founding Fathers didn’t mention tests of loyalty or patriotism. And the fact that this entire matter has been stirred up by a “president” who may well have committed treason with Russia is even more galling.

Flags and national anthems are nothing but symbols. And as such, they can be ignored or rejected as each of us chooses.

Discrimination Racism Sports The Trump Adminstration

Conway Gets Snippy When Fox Host Asks If Pence’s NFL Walkout Was A ‘Political Stunt’ (VIDEO)

The Trump administration’s continued hardline position regarding protests by NFL players during the national anthem is once again bringing controversy to the White House, this time due to the actions of Vice President Pence.

On Sunday, Pence attended a game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers at Lucas Oil Stadium. When some players knelt during the playing of the anthem, Pence walked out, part of a pre-planned stunt which cost taxpayers almost $250,000 for transportation and security.

Senior adviser Kellyanne Conway was asked about Pence’s actions during an appearance on Fox & Friends Monday morning. She said it was “outrageous, egregious, and offensive” to call Pence’s walkout a “political stunt.”

Co-host Steve Doocy seemed unwilling to accept Conway’s explanation at face value, asking:

“When did the vice president and the president talk about doing this?

Conway:

“Well, they talk every day.”

Doocy then followed up by inquiring:

“So, they worked this out last week?”

Clearly upset by the question, Conway snapped:

“Hold on. They talk every day. And they certainly have talked about this issue.”


As well they should. Let them talk about it, debate it, even hold hands, pray, and sing a hymn. But when the actions of this holier-than-thou, robotic Vice President wind up costing the taxpayers a quarter of a million dollars so he can his boss can make some moronic “statement” on a matter they understand next to nothing about, don’t be surprised if more than few Americans start to wonder why their tax dollars are being used to amuse the head of state and somehow help him feel vindicated.

Trump and Pence have no regard for issues which affect the marginalized in this country: the poor, African-Americans, Latinos, women, the LGBT community. But when they start taking money out of our pockets to indulge their supercilious whims, we have every right to tell them we disagree and want them to cease and desist.
