Another "fine person" who is clearly part of the Republican base.

A heckler unfurled a Nazi flag as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the only Jewish 2020 candidate, held a campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday night.

A video posted by a rally attendee shows a man in a white shirt waving a swastika flag before members of the crowd ripped it away from his hands.

“Whoever it was, I think they’re a little outnumbered tonight,” Sanders said in response to the commotion after the man was escorted out by police, per a video posted on Twitter by another rally attendee. “And more importantly they’re going to be outnumbered in November.”

It’s unclear whether Sanders saw the flag itself or only the man being removed from the arena at that moment, but Sanders campaign spokesperson Mike Casca later told a Buzzfeed News reporter that the Vermont senator “is aware of the flag with the swastika on it and is disturbed by it.”

As he was walking away from the arena outside, the man who had allegedly waved the flag shouted “Shut up, [n-word]” at a black man, a video posted by ABC 15 Arizona shows.

During the same rally, several supporters of President Donald Trump waved a flag emblazoned with Trump’s name and his “Keep America Great” campaign slogan, per a video posted by local KOLD News 13 reporter Melissa Egan. They were also removed from the rally.


Nazi? Trump and "Keep America Great?" Seem to represent the same demographic.

And they wonder why we want to take their guns. Not everybody's guns. Just the nutjobs' guns, a group that IMHO makes up an not insignificant percentages of the Trump / Rethuglican base.

A Connecticut man has been charged with threatening to murder Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) last November, federal prosecutors announced Monday. Robert Phelps, 62, was charged with threatening to assault and murder a U.S. official and making interstate threats to the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee on Nov. 12, 2019, according to the U.S Attorney’s Office in Connecticut. Prosecutors allege Schiff’s office received a meeting request from Phelps that included the phrase: “…I want to kill you with my bare hands and smash your…face in.” “In addition, in response to the preferred days of the week for the meeting request, Phelps wrote ‘Measure your Coffin day’'” prosecutors said in a news release. Phelps, who was released on a $25,000 bond, faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Radical Islam? To hell with that, I'm afraid of radical Trumpism! The right-wing noise machine loves to rile these broken people up and somebody is going to get hurt. In fact people have already been hurt. But you can't let that get in the way of ratings.

A Texas man was charged with threatening to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other government officials as part of a self-proclaimed revolution.

Gavin Weslee Blake Perry was charged with transmitting a threatening communication in interstate commerce after someone reported a Facebook post he allegedly made encouraging others to shoot Pelosi and other federal officials, reported WLBT-TV.

“If youre a dem or apart of the establishment in the democrats side I view you as a criminal and a terrorist and I advise everyone to Go SOS [shoot on sight] and use live rounds,” Perry allegedly posted March 23. “This is not gonna change until we attact NSA the DOJ the FBI and Any other agencies who want to get involved. Shoot to kill. This is a revolution.”

The 27-year-old also claimed in a subsequent Pelosi was “apart [sic] of a satanic cult and so are the people who work closly with her. Dems of the establishment will be removed at any cost necessary and yes that means by death.”

Yes, she was in cahoots to get Obama his weekly supply of children for his blood feast requirements.
