CNN is really stepping in it this week. On CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” the panel laid into the controversy surrounding Covington Catholic high schoolers’ encounter with a Native American protester, Nathan Phillips. CNN commentator Angela Rye flatly stated that she just could not get past high school junior Nick Sandmann wearing a MAGA hat. Then she dropped a bombshell by admitting that it is “as maddening and frustrating and triggering for me to look at as a KKK hood.” Sounds like she’s taking her cue from Alyssa Milano.
Host Chris Cuomo was predictably snarky, suggesting that Trump was being disingenuous in his outrage over the media’s libelous reporting on the incident. On cue, Rye agreed with him but then went on about the “standoff” between the teens and activist Nathan Phillips being effectively a Rorschach test of people’s ideological perspectives. No, it wasn’t.
“I wish that for one moment we can talk about what we see. People are talking about what is happening right now as a result of this particular incident is our varying perspectives, and I think that’s such a powerful point,” Rye said.
“Forget Donald Trump for a moment, and just think about that symbol of that red hat,” sneered Rye. “When I see the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat now, Chris, I am triggered. I’m so triggered.” This woman needs professional help.
From The Daily Wire:
“Rye then turned to fellow commentator Andre Bauer, who often defends the president, and said, “Andre, I think in a lot of ways our friendship has been compromised by the fact that you continue to support this man.” She followed that up by giving him credit for sometimes calling out Trump, but making sure to say that she disagrees with him on this issue.
“Red hats, she emphasized, were now as much a symbol of hate as the notorious white hoods of the Ku Klux Klan. “This Make America Great Again hat is just as maddening and frustrating and triggering for me to look at as a KKK hood,” Rye said. “That is the type of hatred that [Trump’s] policies represent. And until we can have common ground and understanding about that, that it’s that triggering, we’re going to continue to have problems.”
These teens have been slandered and libeled all over the place in the media and on social media. They were themselves the target of racism and hatred. They were doing cheers like they do every year except this time they were also trying to drown out the hate coming at them from extremist groups. In true leftist fashion, the actual victims have been tried and found guilty simply for being set up by these shrews. The radical racist group Black Hebrew Israelites has been designated a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. After being called “f*ggots” and “crackers” and being told to “go back to Europe,” the boys began doing their chants and cheers in a form of self-defense.
The Native American Phillips was the antagonist here and he’s been lying his head off at every turn. He told the media the boys were the aggressors and should be expelled. He described them as “beasts” ready to pounce on their “prey,” and a “mob” poised to “lynch” minorities. None of that was even remotely true.
I was chagrined to see one teen, Nick Sandmann, give an interview to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie. I can understand wanting to clear his name but there is no way his parents should have let Nick swim in those shark-infested media waters.
“Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own fault in any way?” Guthrie suggestively asked Sandmann in the interview. She laid her trap beautifully but Sandmann couldn’t have known that.
“As far as standing there, I had every right to do so,” the boy replied. “My position is that I was not disrespectful to Mr. Phillips — I respect him, I’d like to talk to him. In hindsight, I wish we could have walked away and avoided the whole thing, but I can’t say that I’m sorry for listening to him and standing there.”
That was the truth but it won’t matter… no matter what the teen said he’ll be pilloried in the media for it. The real racists and hatemongers… not so much. And the left will continue to be triggered by red MAGA hats. Judge a man not by the color of his skin or the content of his character… judge him on the color of his hat of all things.
“In hindsight, I wish we could’ve walked away and avoided the whole thing.”

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
