  1. Why would black ppl be holding US flags in the white nationalist group? It's a shame that a multi-racial christian group is being characterized as white supremacists. More f*a*k*e news

  2. Light Saber wounds make us stronger, Right labels and their radicals are divisive, rather than divine! #GreaseTheNationalRazor

  3. I wonder why some people snort and chuckle when Avenatti's name is mentioned as a contender. He is honest, courageous and very strong. He is supported and respected by many. He may surprise the detractors…even without needing the help of Russia.

  4. The press keeps building up the losers for ratings…
    The Corporate media is a threat to our Republic ( not a free press or free speech ) the Corporate press has an agenda they spread to low educated lefty citizens

  5. Arizona,not shocked a bit.Of course they,ll push back against this brave man who stands up to them.I once met a woman from Tempe,AZ who told me how nasty they were towards her and her bf at the time who was a full blooded Cherokee.

  6. Losers? It's just a collectives opinion. Just like the mindless left have opinion of there own they are fighting for to.

    Human truth is based on majority opinions. But faced with reality would cause many leftists to commit suicide out of disbelief.

  7. LOL its MSNBC.. Successfully showed the left are insane they want no free speech and you ppl promote this.Its pathetic..Free country for who? Antifa? The way I see it those 27 ppl not all white I may add have more balls then thousands showing up to tell them they have no right to speak

  8. Dem rep warns immigration officers following 'illegal' Trump orders: 'You will not be safe'
    Gallego's warning was prompted by a story in The Washington Post on Wednesday that examined how the U.S. government has denied passports to Hispanics who have U.S. citizenship but are suspected of possibly having fraudulent birth certificates.
    In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, a State Department spokesman blasted the Washington Post report, saying passport denials in these cases have actually declined under this administration. Both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations reportedly denied passports to people delivered by midwives in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley, though the practice was hindered by a court challenge years ago.
