No one questions the Graffiti, just his confession after being taken in by the government.
Obviously racist cops are trying to make the left look bad so they can more freely go to their klan meetings.

In Dutch news, the disgusting cesspool of racist, homophobic, antisemitic, islamophobic crap called Geen Stijl got a boycott on its hands after they insulted the only people with the power to hit back.

Women's protest hits Dutch website with ad boycott - BBC News

Quote:
A Dutch shock blog has been hit by an advertising boycott, after a campaign launched by more than 140 women.
TV journalists, columnists, politicians and a leading economist signed an open letter accusing GeenStijl of denigrating women and online intimidation, as well as racism and homophobia.
They accused big brands such as Rabobank and the Efteling theme park as well as the Dutch ministry of defence of "paying the salaries of the most influential trolls on the internet".
Now several advertisers have responded by pulling their ads, including the brewer Grolsch, the furniture store Ikea and the Dutch tax office.

Hackers Came, but the French Were Prepared - New York Times

Quote:
“We went on a counteroffensive,” said Mr. Mahjoubi. “We couldn’t guarantee 100 percent protection” from the attacks, “so we asked: what can we do?” Mr. Mahjoubi opted for a classic “cyber-blurring” strategy, well known to banks and corporations, creating false email accounts and filled them with phony documents the way a bank teller keeps fake bills in the cash drawer in case of a robbery.

Except it wasn't the agency posting it, it was Pizza Hut, so nobody's buying the lame excuse. And anyway Pizza Hut sucks.

A former ‘Free Syrian Army’ rebel fighter turned refugee has been sentenced to life in jail in the Austrian city of Innsbruck. The regional court found the man guilty of having murdered 20 captured Syrian Army soldiers in Syria’s central province of Homs.

The 27-year-old man had been boasting about his deeds to fellow asylum seekers. He was arrested last year when another Syrian national reported him to authorities. Killing prisoners of war is prohibited under the Geneva Convention.

More on this: Jewish Defense League Allies with Alt-Right - Tikun Olamť



So yeah, soooooo obviously not racist...

Quote:
What’s oddest of all about this ideological miscegenation is that it turns hundreds of years of white supremacism and anti-Semitism on its head. Since well before the days of the Torquemada’s auto da-fe, the Czar’s Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws, Jews have been the bete noire of the fascist ruling class. What changed? How did we all of a sudden become a friend of these monsters? It makes me very uncomfortable. I’d far rather David Duke hate me than love me.
Weeeell, Israel happened. And then Wilders started an extreme right pro-Israel party based on their mutual hatred of Muslims. And now it's all the rage, though some of them manage to combine antisemitism with being pro-Israel, like Le Pen.

A Saudi town has entered its fifth day under "siege" from the kingdom’s security services, with several reportedly killed after gunmen opened fired on police, and roadblocks placed at entrances to the town.

Saudi security services launch a raid in the Eastern Province town of Awamiyah early on Wednesday, claiming the historic Almosara neighbourhood was being used as a hideout for Shia militant groups.

The Eastern Province has a large Shia population who have frequently been accused of being linked to Iran and carrying out anti-state activity.

Another aim of the raid, however, appears to be to allow the demolition of Almosara to make way for a planned renovation project. Activists have posted pictures and videos of bulldozers being accompanied by heavily armoured military vehicles towards the site.

According to a statement from the Saudi interior ministry on Friday, workers on the project in Almosara "came under fire and their vehicles were targeted by explosives" from within the neighbourhood. A two-year-old Saudi boy - identified by the pro-government Al-Arabiya news site as Jawad al-Dagher - and a Pakistani resident were killed in the shooting.

provided proof that the person is a citizen of the United States or
that the person has lawful immigration status in the United States,
such as a Texas driver's license or similar government-issued

Dumbass, read the law you fraud.

If the federal government has issued a detainer for a specific person ...

As is typical with liberals, they exposes their racism once again as they think only people of certain races can be illegal immigrants!!
