Mother of Maumee man accused

The Blade [Toledo, OH], by Lauren Lindstrom

James Alex Fields, Jr., texted his mother Friday to say he had dropped his cat off at her Monclova Township home so he could go to an “alt-right” rally in Virginia. It shocked Samantha Bloom that the 20-year-old Maumee man is now accused of plowing into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town — killing one person, hurting at least two dozen more and ratcheting up tension in a violent confrontation. (Snip) “I told him to be careful,” she said of her son’s participation at the rally. “[And] if they’re going

Posting this article simply as a human interest piece to suggest that the young man seems to have been raised in an atmosphere of at least one loving parent. As silly as it may seem, if the young man enjoyed polka music, that might suggest he was not of a rap music mind-set seemingly inherent in individuals involved in violent activities. Perhaps his car was threatened by protesters and the young man panicked. Hopefully, if rent-a-mobs were involved, appropriate and severe legal action will be imposed by the federal government that includes the organizer(s) and financier(s).

Gov. John Kasich tweeted that “There is no place in America for this violence and vicious hatred coming from white nationalist, KKK & neo-nazi groups.”

So, violence and vicious hatred from BLM, Antifa and other such neo-Communist and anarchist groups is okay, Governor?

When will this official willful blindness/ignorance end?

Exactly #1, they weren´t peaceful protestors. Seems the "white supremacists" were peaceful until attacked by the leftist antifa and BLM types. But of course, the fault is never with the Leftists.

You have to have no memory to forget the BLM (with seed money provided by Soros) and the multiple assassinations of police officers which were a direct consequence of the anti-police campaign from the media and the Democrats. Several of the murderers stated that they had acted in concert with and as a result of the anti-police rhetoric from the left. And still the media absolutely refused to allow any connection to BLM etc.

The media and leftists have once more controlled the language. "White nationalist." I am white. I am a nationalist...I think...whatever the term originally meant. By today´s definition, however, that makes me a racist, bigot, KKKer, and whatever else those controlling the language wish to include.

The group he hit was counter-protesters, who were elsewhere reported to be “violently” protesting, who were marching down a street several full city blocks from the park that was the approved site for the original scheduled protest. The crash occurred two hours after LE shut down the scheduled protest before it ever began.

The enemy wants their enemy to be ´emotional knee-jerk reactionaries´ and this proves just how useless they all become. The community agitators never let a good crisis go to waste.

For all we know this guy was in the middle of texting his girlfriend when he slammed into that car then panicked. It happens ALL the time, unfortunately. Alternatively, he MIGHT have thought he was slamming into a crowd of his much hated, "Alt-Right freaks," and thought he was doing the world a favor. Who knows?? From the looks of things, he seems an odd candidate to go full Timothy McVeigh.

The Antifa mob was just that, a MOB! They apparently had NO permit for lawful public assembly. And it was Martin Loser King who ALWAYS used that little trick. He´d be begged by local civil authorities to take out a permit for peaceful assembly and would REFUSE in order to bring out the cops, national guard, whatever, which also brought out the TV cameras. It was all his way to make the nightly news. He made flaunting the law his Modus Operandi. He was no saint, he was a devil, and his spawn is Barack O´Soros.

Release the "raw" FBI files on MKL,Jr., now!

THOUSANDS of anti-fascist protesters take

Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.

An SUV crashed after all four occupants overdosed on heroin in North Carolina. The same day, a man in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, grabbed the steering wheel after his grandson lost consciousness while driving. Police in the city of 30,000 responded to 11 other overdose reports that day, including a woman who crashed her car just before a highway entrance. The next day in Cleveland, a rescue squad found an unconscious 43-year-old man who had driven off the road and hit a pole. An overdose antidote brought him back around, police say. He was seriously hurt from the crash and was cited

Marijuana is legal in some capacity, whether medicinally or recreationally, in more than half of the United States. But according to conservative columnist Ann Coulter, legalization of the plant is “destroying the country,” and what’s worse, it “makes people retarded.” That’s what The New York Times best-selling author had to say about cannabis while speaking at the nonpartisan political event Politicon on Saturday. Coulter, who has a longstanding history of making controversial remarks, debated with Ana Kasparian, a marijuana advocate and correspondent for the progressive news media outlet The Young Turks, on various topics, including the legality of marijuana in

In the first six months of this administration, President Donald Trump has fought every day to deliver on his promises to the American people. At a historic pace, this president has taken bold action to restore prosperity, keep Americans safe and secure, and hold government accountable. President Trump has signed more than 40 bills and nearly 40 executive orders on everything from health care to energy, infrastructure and more. While the previous administration turned to federal agencies to enact its agenda, President Trump has signed more laws to slash through federal red tape than any president in American history and

Ever since Six Flags opened in 1961, the six flags that have flown over Texas have been a staple of the park.No more. As of Friday morning, the five flags other than the United States flag — representing Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy — are being left to the history books.The park received criticism following last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., from TMZ, Fox News and others for flying the Confederate states flag. As a result, Six Flags Over Texas decided to take down all but the U.S. flag.
