'YOU SPELLED "RACIST" WRONG': AOC SLAMS REPORTING OF GOP STEVE KING'S REMARKS AS 'RACIALLY TINGED'

No.339159 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Democratic Socialist New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez criticized a reporter for not describing Republican Congressman Steve King as “racist.”

In a tweet Friday, David M. Drucker, a senior political correspondent for DC Examiner, tweeted that Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa and House minority whip Steve Scalise had spoken, following remarks in which King defended white nationalism.

King “'initiated' a convo today w/ @SteveScalise to inform them he would speak on floor to address his racially-tinged remarks,” tweeted Drucker, who says on his profile he is also a CNN political analyst and Vanity Fair contributor.

Hundreds of Twitter users criticised the reporter for the use of the phrase “racially tinged,” saying he should have used the word “racist” instead.

Among them was Ocasio Cortez.

"You spelled “racist” wrong,” she tweeted in response to Drucker.

"At this point those who use the terms “racially tinged” or “racially charged” to describe white supremacy should be prepared to explain why they chose to employ those terms instead of “racist”/“racism.” If the answer is their own discomfort, they’re protecting the wrong people," she continued.

Drucker thanked Ocasio Cortez for her comment, responding,"appreciate the edit."

"Thank you for being open. It’s time we call it what it is," she replied.

In a follow up report for the Examiner on comments by King to reporters in congress after addressing the House, Drucker wrote that King didn’t expect “blowback” for the remarks.

“King has been in hot water before for using racially charged rhetoric. But this latest episode smacked of outright racism and generated a rare rebuke from House GOP leaders,” he wrote.

Rudy Giuliani Forgot to Wear Pants to CNN Interview

No.342278 ViewReplyOriginalReport
In an interview tagged for its discursive melanoma, viewers had only partial access to the bizarre scene on set. Dueling with a veritable admission that the Trump team committed treason on behalf of the Russian government was the strange sight of a 74 year old man seated behind the set desk sans trousers.

When asked by a production assistant if pants should be found for him to wear, Guiliani said, “No. Thanks. Really. It's not anything to worry about.”

CNN requests KUSI for local view on the border, declines our reporter after finding out wall works

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Thursday morning, CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if one of our reporters could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown.

KUSI offered our own Dan Plante, who has reported dozens of times on the border, including one story from 2016 that was retweeted by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, and posted on DrudgeReport.com. The Border Fence Tour is below.

We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work.

We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.

Another Saudi woman has turned to social media for protection from her father, just days after Canada granted refuge to Rahaf Mohammed (who dropped her family name of al-Qunun after her family denounced her), the 18-year-old Saudi woman who fled her family.

Identified only as Nojoud al-Mandeel on Twitter, her case differs from that of Mohammed. She has not fled the kingdom, has not revealed her face and has only made her pleas for help on Twitter in Arabic.

Another Saudi rapist escales Canada with Saudi government help

Saudi embassy helped accused rapist flee Canada
BY BRAD HUNTER

And another one’s gone.

A Saudi Arabian man who failed to show for his trial on two counts of sex assault and one of sexual interference in Halifax has skipped town.

Taher Ali Al-Saba — who was in the country learning English — is just the latest Saudi national to skip facing the music, allegedly with the help of his country’s diplomats.

The embassy informed the RCMP’s immigration and passport section the then 19-year-old is now back home.

That was even though Halifax cops held his passport.

So far, the Saudi embassy is refusing to answer how he got a new passport before the trial to escape justice.

“They refused to cooperate with us in terms of telling us how that happened,” Crown attorney Catherine Cogswell told The Chronicle Herald, who broke the story.


A decade ago, Mohammed Zuraibi Alzoabi paid $37,500 cash bail in Cape Breton (thanks Saudi embassy) to be released from custody as he awaited two trials on sexual assault, assault, forcible confinement, uttering threats, criminal harassment, dangerous driving and assault with a weapon.

Cops held his passport in that instance as well.

Both men have now been placed on Interpol’s watch list.

And it isn’t just in Canada.

In Oregon, The Oregonian newspaper discovered five cases where Saudi nationals had fled before being tried.
