For those who don’t remember David Duke is a former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, who denies the Holocaust ever happened.  He is a former politician who was convicted of a felony in 2002 for pretending to be broke siphon money from his supporters for investments and gambling trips. 

Duke is the prototypical visage of the “angry white male.”  People who suffer from penis envy and feel power is being lost due to diversification.  He started the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan shortly after graduating from LSU, he called himself the Grand Wizard.  He changed the title from Grand Wizard to National Director and began to wear business suits instead of Robes.

"Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness," the story said. "A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value." 

This is just one statement in an article on the website the Daily Stoermer.  It also called the woman who was run down by a white supremacist during a rally this week end.  It also referred to the woman as, "fat and a drain on society."

The good thing is GoDaddy, booted them and cited that the racist site violates their terms of agreement.    According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, "the Daily Stormer is dedicated to spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism, primarily through guttural hyperbole and epithet-laden stories about topics like alleged Jewish world control and black-on-white crime."

One of the sickest feelings you can get is when you hear of a baby being left in a vehicle on a sweltering hot day.   Despite the number of times we see this scene, it always seems to happen again. 

In Hackensack, New Jersey in a Costo parking lot a two-year-old boy was observed sweating and suffering in the back of a minivan.  The windows were down about an inch and the boy was in a car seat.  Authorities waited for someone to return to the vehicle and when they did police approached them. 

It was a woman and another small child with a cart full of groceries. 

Chaeyoung Lim-Kim was arrested and charged with child endangerment.  Her hot son was taken to a hospital and cleared of any possible injury from the incident.  He is now in custody of his father.  His mother was released on her own recognizance.
