https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story ... 708960001/
A Des Moines woman told authorities she hit a teenage girl with her car because the victim was Hispanic, according to court records.

Nicole Marie Poole Franklin, 42, is charged with attempted murder for allegedly running down a 14-year-old on Dec. 9 as the girl walked to Indian Hills Junior High School, Clive police say. The Des Moines woman is being held at the Polk County Jail.

Franklin is accused of driving her 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee off the roadway in the 9200 block of Indian Hills Drive at Indian Hills Junior High School onto a sidewalk where the victim was walking, according to a criminal complaint.

Poole admitted to intentionally striking the victim and attempting to kill her because she was Hispanic, according to the complaint.

:shock:

Wouldn't a better defense have been that she lost control of the vehicle?

Thanks Trump. :madguy:

Iowa woman who said she hit teen with car because she was 'a Mexican' charged with hitting black child same day
BY REBECCA KLAR - 12/26/19 10:02 AM EST

An Iowa woman is reportedly facing an additional attempted murder charge after police said she hit a 12-year-old boy with her car the same day she allegedly hit a 14-year-old girl because she “was a Mexican.”

Des Moines Sgt. Paul Parizek said footage shows Nicole Poole Franklin, 42, intentionally hit the 12-year-old boy, who is black, CNN reported Tuesday.

The Dec. 9 incident reportedly happened about an hour before Franklin allegedly hit the 14-year-old girl. Franklin faces attempted murder charges for that hit-and-run as well.

Police said the boy was walking along the curb of a parking lot of an apartment in Des Moines when an SUV jumped the curb and ran over his leg, according to CNN. The driver fled the scene.

I went past this parking lot with family on Boxing Day and we all said who would be crazy enough to go shopping there on Boxing Day. Apparently Parking Lot Patty. I’m glad to say she has been identified and charged!

It appears a crafty screenwriter could draft a Black Mirror episode from this woman's life.

Can we get her some mental health treatment? How does this happen? I know Saint Ronny trashed the system in the 80s but come on!

Nick Sandmann has settled a lawsuit with CNN. The Jersey attack by black Hebrew Israelites probably helped:

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-covin ... ettled.amp

And this is from October but wasn’t posted. Sandmann suit against WaPo was reinstated:
The judge noted that the new complaint "also alleges that [Sandmann] could be identified as the subject of [Phillips' statements] by reason of certain photographs of [Sandmann] and the videos" of the episode.
Same argument I made last year.

I Grew Up in the ‘Most Hateful Town in America’
Welcome to Vidor, a town most famous for its racism


https://humanparts.medium.com/i-grew-up ... 4e91e6b3bc
Vidor was once what they called a “sundown town,” or a white-flight suburb of the much larger and more racially diverse city of Beaumont. Black people could pass through unscathed so long as they were gone come sunset. These towns usually had a sign that said something to the effect of “whites only after dark.”

:snippity:

In an interview with CNN, a 62-year-old man from Beaumont recalled an incident that happened when he was a teen in the 1970s. He and his friends were changing a tire in Vidor when a white policeman threatened them. According to the CNN story, "[The white policeman] said, 'Well, let me tell ya — you boys better wrap and get out of here, because I'm going to go to that next exit and come back around. You better be gone!’
"
In the same story, the reporter talked to a county official who claimed there “hasn’t been a Klan here in 30 years.”

Anyone who’s lived in Vidor knows this is a lie.
When my daughters were in high school their school played Vidor in sports and music competitions. When our band busses reached Vidor they were met by police who escorted us to the stadium so that the buses didn't have to stop at traffic lights. Despite that someone once stoned the bus in which I as a chaperone was riding.

Another time on the playing field a Vidor football player pushed a black game official in the chest knocking him down.

For some reason such incidents don't strike me as the behavior of a group that is thoroughly convinced of its superiority.

I never knew that about Vidor, but I also never knew anyone from there. One of my aunts and cousins lived in Beaumont and we visited them a few times when I lived in Texas as a child. What I most remember about Beaumont is they had virtually no sidewalks. I have always loved to walk, even as a kid I walked all the time, so I would notice that kind of thing. That probably isn't true today, but it sure was true back in the 60's - 70's.

A death penalty trial officially started Wednesday for Kori Muhammad, the man accused of killing four men -- including three during a racist killing spree through downtown Fresno.

During a 2018 trial to determine whether the defendant is mentally competent, an expert on radical belief systems said killing four "white devils" would make him a hero in his religion -- the Nation of Islam, which is an American black supremacy religion, and a belief system vehemently and consistently rejected by mainstream Muslims.

Canada's Chinese community faces racist abuse in wake of coronavirus

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/ ... s-outbreak
The country saw a similar wave of xenophobia during 2003 Sars outbreak, which also started in China.

During that panic, many Chinese-run businesses in Canada took steep losses as fear overrode public health advice: Toronto lost an estimated C$1bn as residents and tourists avoided the city, especially areas with a high concentration of Chinese businesses.

The irrational public worry that paralyzed much of the city seems to be returning, said Amy Go, the interim president of the Chinese Canadian National Council for Social Justice.

“I was hopeful it wasn’t going to be like 2003. But it’s is. It’s happening now and it’s just going to be amplified [by social media].”

Right Richter-

Michelle Malkin Endorses Racist CPAC Rival

https://www.thedailybeast.com/right-ric ... conference
But this time, CPAC will face a racist rival conference at an undisclosed location nearby: the “America First Political Action Conference,” featuring two speakers who marched in the white supremacist Charlottesville rally in 2017.

Ordinarily, a gathering this fringe wouldn’t mean much for the right—except for the fact that Michelle Malkin, one of the most prominent conservative columnists in the country, is also speaking. Malkin’s headlining role raises questions about how far racist ideas are infiltrating the mainstream right.

The backstory here is that a particularly online section of the right has been riven for the past few months between “groypers”—the white nationalist activists and their fellow travelers—and more establishment conservative elements like Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA and the organizers of CPAC.

Organized around white nationalist Nick Fuentes, the “groypers”—who take their name from an obese toad version of Pepe the Frog—started showing up at Turning Point events and shouting down speakers like Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX). They claimed that Crenshaw and his allies aren’t conservative enough, and many of their questions were aimed at questioning the United States’ support for Israel, in an attempt to “red-pill” campus conservatives toward more extreme views.
Malkin gives full support to the groypers.
