Golden West College professor and counselor Tarin Olson from Long Beach, CA was caught on video telling a couple to "go back to your home country." Not only is she a racist, but she's also ignorant, as the couple and their baby are American.
"I want you to tell everybody why you told us to go back to our country," Tony Kao tells Olson in the video that he posted on Facebook, which went viral with 538,000 views as of yesterday.
"You need to go back to your home country," Olson replies.
"And what does that mean?" Tao asks.
"Have your wife turn your phone off and I'll talk to you," the racist college counselor says.
According to Los Angeles Times:
On Monday, Olson said in an email to the Daily Pilot that she was "not in a good place emotionally after receiving so many disgusting emails …. for something that wasn't even racist and was then skewed by a guy named Tony who filmed me without my permission...
"I feel my perspective will be twisted if discussing the skewed video which cut out part of the incident," she said in a statement to the station. "If you would like to have a full normal interview about the displacement of European-Americans, then I gladly am available to enlighten the public."
Golden West College responded with this quote on Facebook and Twiiter: "It has recently come to our attention that there was a video posted on Facebook of a GWC faculty member making comments that the college does not condone or support. Read the rest
Dayanna Volitich is a 25-year-old social studies teacher at Crystal River Middle School in Florida. She is the host (under the pseudonym “Tiana Dalichov”) of a white nationalist podcast called “Unapologetic.” Sample quote: "So many other researchers have already looked into this and that's just the way it is -- there are races that have higher IQs than others." Citrus County School District Superintendent Sandra Himmel announced on Saturday that Volitich has been “removed from the classroom.”

In her most recent podcast on Feb. 26, a guest railed against diversity in schools, dismissing the idea that “a kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.” Volitich enthusiastically agreed with the guest, and went on to argue that “science” has proven that certain races are smarter than others.
In the same episode, Volitich boasted about bringing her white nationalist beliefs into the classroom and hiding her ideology from administrators. She said that when parents complained to the school’s principal about how she is injecting political bias into the classroom, Volitich lied to the principal and said it was not true.
“She believed me and backed off,” she said.
Volitich also agreed with her guest’s assertion that more white supremacists need to infiltrate public schools and become teachers. “They don’t have to be vocal about their views, but get in there!” her guest said. “Be more covert and just start taking over those places.”
“Right,” Volitich said.
Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who killed nine black worshipers at a church in Charleston, made a show of defiance at his trial and waltzed into the hoped-for martyrdom of a death sentence. But his bravado has run out, reports The Post and Courier.

Given the ethnicity of his court-appointed federal public defenders, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani, it is "literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests related to my case," Roof wrote.
Yates and Mirchandani were appointed after Roof was sentenced to death in January. During the trial, he often feuded with Bruck, who wanted to present evidence of mental illness and possible autism in an effort to garner Roof a life sentence.
Gainesville, Florida Police Officer Michael Hamill loved it when his handsome face went viral. That's why it's so baffling that he closed his Facebook account just as his popularity was peaking. Oh, wait, maybe it's because Officer Hamill posted on Facebook about his desire to have Jews and "stupid people" placed in concentration camps and ovens.
From the Gainesville Sun:
One screenshot is of an April 2013 post, in which Hamill writes: “Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well. Here is one for everybody, “What’s the difference between boy scouts and jews?” Anybody know? Well it is because “Boy scouts come back from their camps.”
One person replied to that Facebook post, calling it “messed up.” Hamill replied, “u don’t like it? don’t read it then.”
In another screen shot from a 2011 post, Hamill writes: “so I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality it’s YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.”

Hamill told TIME on Wednesday, before news broke about the alleged Facebook posts, that he was shocked by the newfound attention.
“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio," Trump told Fox News on Sunday. "He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”

Members of a far-right Norwegian Facebook group confused a photo of empty seats on a bus for women in burkas. From TheNewArab:

Responses included how "frightening", "tragic" and "scary" the scene was, while others worried the non-existent passengers could have "weapons and bombs" under their garments.
"It looks really scary, should be banned. You can never know who is under there. Could be terrorists with weapons," one member wrote, according to Norweigian English-language site thelocal.no...
The head of the Norwegian Centre Against Racism (Antirasistisk senter) told Nettavisen that the irrational response to six empty bus seats shows how quickly people jump to conclusions.
"People see what they want to see and what they want to see are dangerous Muslims. In a way it's an interesting test of how quickly people can find confirmations of their own delusions," Rune Berglund Steen said.
Simultaneously racist and cringe-inducing today is the aging Republiclone lawmaker, Florida State Sen. Frank Artiles, calling a black colleague a "fucking asshole," "bitch," and "girl," and declaring that he had risen to his powerful role thanks to "six niggas" in the caucus.
He didn't pronounce "niggas" the way he might in order to be clear in his meaning, obviously, and had to explain exactly which kind of racist he was later: the ironically-appropriating kind, not the white-hoods-and-nooses kind. But now that's cleared up, everything's all good.

By Tuesday night, the Florida Democratic Party had called on Artiles to resign. Negron, after initially saying little on the incident, said in a statement late Tuesday he was “appalled” by Artiles’ comments — and that Artiles will publicly apologize to Gibson on the Senate floor Wednesday.
“Racial slurs and profane, sexist insults have no place in conversation between Senators and will not be tolerated while I am serving as Senate President,” Negron said.
The Black Caucus has scheduled an emergency Wednesday meeting.
To Gibson and Thurston, it was clear Artiles wasn’t referring to them or to any other Democrats as “niggas” but apparently to six Republicans who favored Negron for the job over Sen. Jack Latvala of Clearwater.
What will happen to Milo Yiannopoulos now that he has 'resigned' from Breitbart.com, after tape resurfaced of the alt-right Nazi-lovin' bottle blonde hater making pro-pedophilia comments? He's launching his own media empire, bla bla bla. As soon as the Milo-pedo news cycle ends, he'll be fine.

Charles Wasko, as mayor of West York, PA, had a bad Facebook habit, issuing a string of racist and sexist postings that finally cost him his job. He regrets nothing, reports the BBC: "The racist stuff, yeah. I'll admit I did that, and I don't care what people label me as." Read the rest

In a 1971 Playboy interview John Wayne expressed his views on blacks ("irresponsible") and native Americans ("selfish"). These comments came back to haunt Wayne's legacy when California lawmakers nixed Orange County Assemblyman Matthew Harper's proposal to designate May 26, 2016, as "John Wayne Day." The bill was defeated in a 35-20 vote.
From the Playboy interview:
“I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.”
“Our so-called stealing of this country from [native Americans] was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”
“Opposing the John Wayne Day resolution is like opposing apple pie, fireworks, baseball, the Free Enterprise system and the Fourth of July!” said Harper in a statement.

One of the men occupying the Malheur wildlife preserve building in Oregon has, finally, been arrested. Why? Because he drove off in one of the feds' trucks.
The Oregonian reports: "Kenneth Medenbach, 62, of Crescent, was arrested on suspicion of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, a class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison. He was to be booked into the Deschutes County Jail in Bend with bail set at $10,000, officials said."
Two trucks were impounded, and it's not clear if they know who was in the other one or what that person's fate is. Evidently, the two had decided to go shopping at Safeway, having become tired of the diet of candy cock that Americans are mailing in response to their pleas for groceries. Read the rest
Last week Patrick Rushing, mayor of Airway Heights, Washington, posted a comment to Facebook which read, “Gorilla face Michelle, can't disagree with that. The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL." When people suggested he resign from office for his racist slur, Rushing said, “I made a mistake. I owned up to my mistake. If I do resign that’s admitting I’m a racist and I’m not.”
“My entire life race has never been an issue,” Rushing said. Check out 75 other "mistakes" that Rushing posted to his Facebook page.
