NPR tweets Declaration of Independence, and Trump supporters are angered | The Kansas City Star

To commemorate the Fourth of July and what the holiday represents, National Public Radio filled its Twitter feed with the words of the Declaration of Independence on Tuesday.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events,

it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,

and to assume among the powers of the earth,

— NPR (@NPR) July 4, 2017

a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
— NPR (@NPR) July 4, 2017

The tweets went unrecognized as containing the text of one of our nation’s most important documents by some on Twitter. People tweeted that NPR’s thread was trash, that it was inciting revolution and was a reason the public organization should be defunded.

Some seemed to imply that the thread was directed at President Donald Trump.

So, NPR is calling for revolution.

Interesting way to condone the violence while trying to sound "patriotic".

Your implications are clear.

Bwhaha. I loved the guy who said NPR should having funding pulled for threatening revolt. KING GEORGE III NOT TRUMP.

Seriously, this is the dumbest idea I have ever seen on twitter. Literally no one is going to read 5000 tweets about this trash.
— Darren Mills (@darren_mills) July 4, 2017

DEFUND #NPR let the Hollywood Elites pay for your biased propaganda
— Diesel (@ScandalSheet) July 4, 2017

One of the most popular tweets in the thread from NPR was this one:

A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
— NPR (@NPR) July 4, 2017

To his credit, Twitter user D.G. Davies apologized for not recognizing the tweets as the Declaration of Independence. “I Tweeted a VERY dumb comment,” he wrote. “But ask yourselves; if read to the average American, would they know that you were reading the DOI? I do now.”

You're absolutely right, C.A.

I also hope this serves as a lesson to any and all of us to stop and think. I have learned mine.

Vegan cafe slammed for letting nude kids 'defecate on the floor'

The controversary began after a customer wrote a review for Imagine Vegan Cafe in Memphis, Tennessee, explaining that a nude baby running around in the dining area defecated on the floor.

Owners Adam and Krisite Jeffrey were quick to respond to the review, posting a series of angry responses on their Facebook page, defending the child's behaviour.

Customer Chelsea Bartley took to Google Plus to leave her review and said the baby "bent over to show me its butthole".

"During my visit, a bare butt naked baby was running around, stood up on a table with its black theyre (sic) so dirty feet," she wrote.

"An older kid came over and started like yodeling and staring at me during my meal. I was SO uncomfortable."

Mr and Mrs Jeffrey fired back to the claims and confirmed it was their child running around.

"I am about to start calling out names and pictures of people who leave us bad reviews, especially when it deals with our children," they wrote in the post since deleted on their Facebook page.

"You will no longer be allowed to come and dine at Imagine. Especially when you lie about our babies.

"You've throughly irritated mama bear!!!"

The post name Ms Bartley as the person who wrote the review in question.

"These are my children she is talking about. She's complaining about our five-year-old coming over and talking to her, and our 21-month-old.

"I understand your point, but if you are uncomfortable with a naked baby then do not come to our restaurant. Periodically she will not have a diaper on and that is life."

https://www.gomn.com/news/family-rej...tesville-rally

The family of a Fargo man pictured attending the white supremacist rally in Virginia says it "wholly rejects him."

Pete Tefft was among those photographed at the "Unite the Right" event in Charlottesville, which was attended by neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members, and other white supremacist groups.

His image was then shared by the viral Twitter account "Yes, You're Racist," which has been outing people who attended the rally.

Tefft's identification led to members of his family being subjected to harassment and threats of violence, which prompted them to release a statement on Sunday evening in which they described him as a "crazy Nazi."

His father, Percy Tefft, wrote a letter to the Fargo Forum in which he repudiates "my son's vile, hateful and racist rhetoric and actions," saying he didn't learn his beliefs from home.

"Peter Tefft, my son, is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast."

"We reject him wholly – both him personally as a vile person who has HIMSELF made violent threats against our family, and also his hideous ideology, which we abhor," Tefft's nephew, Jacob Scott, told WDAY.

"We are all bleeding-heart liberals who believe in the fundamental equality of all human beings. Peter is a maniac, who has turned away from all of us and gone down some insane internet rabbit-hole, and turned into a crazy nazi."

They continue to say the family doesn't feel safe around him, but despite their opposition to everything he stands for they have still been targeted for harassment. Tefft's sister was threatened at her place of work "under the assumption that she must be a Nazi."
Tefft's tweets from the weekend

On his Twitter account Sunday, Tefft was arguing his stance with other commenters, and also posted the following, declaring: "We're right."

MPR notes that in an interview two weeks ago, Tefft described himself as a "pro-white activist," and describes the term "Nazi" as "kinda like our N-word."

He repeated this contention on Twitter, responding to a commenter by saying: "Nazi is a racial slur against whites. Some in attendance were National Socialists but not all. Ud know if the speakers were able to speak."

MPR notes that the actions of "Yes, You're Racist" doesn't appear to flout Twitter rules. The social media site doesn't ban the identifying of people pictured in public settings.

Prior to the rally, Tefft posted a picture of himself in front of the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, the potential tearing down of which is what prompted the Unite the Right rally in the first place.

Hi. Welcome.

Third woman accuses Roman Polanski of sex attack - BBC News

Another woman has come forward to say she was sexually molested in the 1970s by the film director Roman Polanski.

The woman, named only as Robin, told a news conference that the alleged attack happened in 1973 when she was 16. She is the third woman to accuse Polanski of child abuse.

He fled the US in 1978 after admitting statutory rape of a 13 year old.

His victim, Samantha Geimer, asked a Los Angeles court in June to end the case against him.

She said she had forgiven the filmmaker for the assault and wanted closure for herself and her family.

Robin, who appeared with her lawyer Gloria Allred in Los Angeles on Tuesday, cannot sue Polanski in a criminal court because the statute of limitation has passed.

However, she could testify against him in the case involving Ms Geimer.

She told journalists that she was "infuriated" that the case against Polanski, now 83, might be dropped and she believed he should still be held accountable for his assault on Samantha Geimer.

"The day after it happened, I did tell one friend that Mr Polanski had done that to me," she said.

"The reason, with this exception, that I kept it to myself is that I didn't want my father to do something that might cause him to go to prison for the rest of his life."

Polanski's lawyers have not yet commented on the latest accusations.

He admitted unlawful sex with a minor in 1977 and served 42 days in prison, but later fled the US over concern that a plea bargain deal would be scrapped.

The Oscar-winning director, who is a citizen of Poland and of France, has been a fugitive since.

In 2010 British actress Charlotte Lewis accused Polanski of sexually assaulting her in Paris in 1983, when she was 16 years old. She was also represented by lawyer Gloria Allred.

KKK’s request to burn cross on Stone Mountain denied

The Stone Mountain Memorial Association this week denied a Ku Klux Klan request to burn a cross at the park, citing the trouble at a “pro-white” rally last year.

Joey Hobbs, a Dublin man with the Sacred Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, wanted to hold a “lighting” ceremony on Oct. 21 with 20 participants, according to the application. This would’ve been to commemorate the KKK’s 1915 revival, which began with a flaming cross atop Stone Mountain on the evening of Thanksgiving.

“We will light our cross and 20 minutes later we will be gone,” wrote Hobbs, who couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday, in an application dated May 26. It wasn’t immediately clear if Hobbs holds a formal position with the group.

“We don’t want any of these groups at the park, quite frankly,” John Bankhead, spokesman for the association said Wednesday, referring to white nationalists groups and the KKK. “This is a family-oriented park.”
