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.

Judge Slams The Brakes On Trump’s Pardon Of Joe Arpaio (DETAILS)

Seeing as how he knows virtually nothing about how the federal government works or the powers of the different branches–executive, judicial, and legislative–it may come as one hell of a surprise when President Trump learns that his pardon of former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not as complete as he imagined.

Yes, Trump did indeed issue a full presidential pardon of Arpaio last Friday as Hurricane Harvey was bearing down on Texas, but the federal district judge who oversaw the trail of Arpaio on charges of criminal contempt on which Sheriff Joe was convicted is now refusing to vacate Arpaio’s conviction.

According to Arizona CentralJudge Susan Bolton:

“Bolton on Tuesday stopped short of throwing out the conviction based solely on Arpaio’s request. Instead she ordered Arpaio and the U.S. Department of Justice, which is prosecuting the case, to file briefs on why she should or shouldn’t grant Arpaio’s request.

“Arpaio’s attorneys asked Bolton on Monday to vacate Arpaio’s conviction in light of President Donald Trump’s Friday pardon.

“Bolton has scheduled oral arguments on the matter for Oct. 4, the day before Arpaio was supposed to be sentenced.”


In other words, Arpaio is far from being out of the woods because unlike Trump, a federal judge is allowed to interpret how the executive branch uses its powers and whether or not the president has acted within his rights under the United States Constitution. And should Judge Bolton refuse to vacate Arpaio’s sentence, he could well be headed to jail after all.

Here are some other crimes Arapaio needs to be charged and tried for:

  • Torturing inmates at his jail.
  • Forcing female inmates to give birth while shackled.
  • Refusing to investigate sex crimes against Hispanic children.
  • The death of 160 inmates at jails under the control of Arpaio and his deputies.
  • Involving himself in immigration matters, which are the sole responsibility of federal law enforcement.

Joe Arpaio is a sadist and a bigoted piece of amphibian shit who should be in federal prison for what remains of his miserable life. Maybe we can even get him a cell next door to Donald Trump’s.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Ambushed Jane Sanders, And Bernie Just Fired Back

Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio has long been known to engage in racial profiling, houses inmates in outdoor “tent city” facilities, and even serves spoiled food to those who are unfortunate enough to have to spend any time in his custody. So it’s not surprising that this racist asshat of a worm has enthusiastically endorsed Donald Trump for President in 2016.

Earlier this week, Jane Sanders, the wife of Democratic Presidential contender Bernie Sanders visited one of Arpaio’s tent prisons, and she later said she was absolutely appalled by what she saw there. Arpaio took offense and wound up in an argument with Mrs. Sanders, telling her she could not hope to understand why he feels the need to what he does.

When this information reached the Senator from Vermont, he was said to be enraged that Arpaio had “ambushed” his wife, and he fired back last night at a campaign event, telling supporters:

“She asked him about racial profiling, and he didn’t have an answer. She asked him about conditions in Tent City and other abuses that he has perpetuated, and he didn’t have an answer. You know what, he cannot have an answer, because what he is doing is un-American and uncivilized.

“If elected president, we are going to pass comprehensive immigration reform and a path toward citizenship, whether Mr. Arpaio likes it or not.”

And Senator Sanders had a very pointed warning for Joe Arpaio, and, by extension, Donald Trump:

“It’s easy for bullies like Sheriff Arpaio to pick on people who have no power. If I am elected president — the President of the United States does have power. So watch out, Joe.”

That’s the kind of rhetoric we need more of in this campaign. We all need to be taking on the bullies and putting them in their place, no matter how much energy or effort it takes.

Indian-American Woman Visited By Cops After Trying To Buy Ammo

Sim Sangha is a 24-year-old firearms instructor from Fremont, California. She recently went to Dick’s Sporting Goods and asked an employee there about purchasing eight boxes of ammunition for her AR-15 rifle. That’s the same kind of gun used by the terrorist attackers in San Bernardino earlier this month.

Two days later, police showed up at Sangha’s home to question her after the store employee called authorities.

Sangha commented on the incident:

“I don’t know if it’s my skin color or that I’m Indian. I’m not a Muslim, but even if I were, that’s no reason to call police to my home, instantly.”

In addition to being a firearms instructor, Sangha is about to become a member of the Los Angeles Police Department. She thinks this is clearly a case of racial profiling:

“They singled me out because of the way I look. I’ve had friends buy bulk ammo, and they’ve never had police show up at their door.”

For their part, police officials say they have apologized to Ms. Sangha, but they had a duty to investigate any activity that might be considered “suspicious.”

Let’s not forget that conservatives have decried the “political correctness” that prevented a man working in the same community as the San Bernardino shooters–Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik– from calling authorities because he did not want to racially profile them.

Yet here we have a woman who appeared to be from another country and the police suddenly express an interest in what she might want to do with eight boxes of ammunition. Why do I get the feeling that when right wingers talk about the Second Amendment being absolute that they would have no problem denying guns to Muslim Americans or those who appear to be of another nationality?

Where is the NRA in this whole matter? Why isn’t NRA President Wayne LaPierre rushing to Fremont to hold a press conference and say how outraged he is that Ms. Sangha was treated in this manner? Why? Because he is a hypocrite and could care less about her rights.

The silence from the ammosexuals on what was done to Sangha is deafening.
