Not only is this news you will not hear on Fox, it is news you will not hear from TeaPublicans, Republicans or other rightwingnutcases.
Republican school board member says she will accuse 2020 Democratic Presidential nominee of sexual assault, no matter who the nominee is
Two groups have called for the immediate resignation of a South Carolina Republican school board member for writing on Facebook that she intends to falsely accuse the eventual 2020 Democratic presidential nominee of sexually assaulting her.
According to WBTW, Horry County School board member Sherrie Todd, a Republican, took to Facebook to comment on sexual assault accusations levied against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh by stating she planned to make a false accusation against a Democrat.
Todd wrote, “I’ve already decided that whoever wins the Democrat nomination in 2020 sexually assaulted me 40 years ago.”
Since that September comment, Todd has been under fire in the community, firing back that she was hacked and made no such assertion.
According to Lorraine Woodward of Grand Strand Action Together, Todd should in no way be allowed near a school board working on policies for teens.
“Imagine being a teenage girl or guy being sexually assaulted and then see a post making fun of your situation,” Woodward stated.
Horry County Alliance for Educational Justice spokesperson Dameion Fowler agreed, saying, “Personal responsibility and accountability is supposed to be for everyone. If you’re going to teach it, if you’re going to preach it, you better practice what you preach.”
Typical Republican. Thinks everyone else should be held responsible for their actions while she can do as she pleases without consequences.
Oklahoma GOP leader says “progressives” are not “real Christians”
A Republican party leader in Oklahoma sent out an email to her supporters saying that Progressive Christians are not true Christians. Carolyn McLarty serves as the National Committeewoman to the Republican Party.
Patrick Riley at The Lost Ogle said the email revealed, “The logic-defying brains of the people who run the State GOP.”
McLarty’s email warned her supporters to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing coming to Oklahoma City.
“They are a Progressive Christian troupe that promotes a socialist agenda. They would like nothing less than to flip Congress away from Republican control, yet they say they are non-partisan,” she wrote.
She added, “The ‘common good’ is an idea right out of the Marxist Communist Manifesto. Socialism and communism have never worked. A market economy with private property, individual liberty, personal responsibility, respect for the dignity of life for every person, and the rule of Law does work.”
“Don’t be deceived by this misleading statement and movement. There is only one way to God, and that is through the finished work of Jesus Christ. His sacrifice for our sin was sufficient for all human beings,” McLarty wrote. “The Bible is very clear on this truth, and it points us to Jesus in every Book of the Old and New Testaments. With all the differences in various beliefs of Christian denominations, this truth is the core of the Gospel. Individuals believe and receive Jesus as a gift of faith or not.”
Hmmm. Wonder what Jesus would think of this?
Wife of white supremacist Richard Spencer reveals a lifetime of physical and emotional abuse
Richard Spencer’s wife Nina Kroupiianova has accused him of physical, emotional, verbal and financial abuse while filing for divorce.
BuzzFeed News reported that Kroupiianova, who married the white nationalist figurehead in 2010 and has two children with him, made the allegations in her divorce filings in Montana.
Descriptions of the alleged abuse include the woman “being hit, being grabbed, being dragged around by her hair, being held down in a manner causing bruising, and being prevented from calling for help” by Spencer.
According to the filings, “Much of the abuse has occurred in the presence of the parties’ children,” and Kroupiianova “has been reluctant to call police or seek an order of protection for fear of further reprisal” by her husband.
BuzzFeed noted that in the filings, Spencer’s wife said that because of his “controversial public life,” Kroupiianova and the couples’ two young children are “targets of violence.”
He allegedly kept a loaded gun in their bedroom that was “accessible to children” after being punched the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“Despite the risk to his family,” the woman argued, “[Spencer] continues to engage in extremely polarizing public speech advocating ‘peaceful ethnic cleansing’ and a white-only ‘ethno-state’ which tends to invite passions and violence.”
“Most, if not all, of [Spencer’s] public speaking events result in violence,” Kroupiianova added.
Spencer denied “each, every and all allegations” in court filings.

Nothing surprising here.
Trump is now engaged in vast voter suppression, claims “voter fraud” — it’s all bullshit
After President Donald Trump fired off a hysterical tweet this weekend warning of mass “voter fraud”—a right-wing bogeyman for which there is virtually zero evidence—and threatening violators with severe punishment, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law condemned the president for deploying Jim Crow-era scare tactics to suppress minority voter turnout just two weeks before the midterm elections.
“President Trump’s statement regarding vote fraud is one of the most naked attempts to promote voter suppression that we have seen in modern time,” Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee, said in a statement following Trump’s tweet, in which he declared that “all levels of government and law enforcement are watching carefully” for violations.
Clarke argued that the president’s tweet is clearly part of an ongoing right-wing effortto “promote fear and incite law enforcement to action in ways that could chill voter participation this midterm election cycle.”
“Meanwhile this administration and the Justice Department’s silence regarding widespread voter suppression has been deafening. To date, this Justice Department has failed to file a single case to enforce the Voting Rights Act and has failed to take any action to protect the rights of minority voters,” Clarke said. “Instead, we see the president using his platform to promote unsubstantiated and false claims about vote fraud.”
“What is most dangerous about the president’s statement is the suggestion that government and law enforcement across the country are activating to prosecute voters,” Clarke concluded. “This is nothing more than an open and brazen attempt to use the threat of criminal prosecution to intimidate minority voters, an old and familiar tactic that dates back to the Jim Crow era.”
