Cenk hosting today. A Christian gun manufacturer has developed a new Muslim killing AR-15 called The Crusader. It has a Bible scripture etched onto each one that vows to kill its enemies. Video of the developer talking about the gun and firing it. A Muslim flight attendant is complaining that she has been suspended for not serving alcohol to passengers due to her religious beliefs. As a recent convert to Islam, she worked out a deal with her fellow flight attendants to serve the alcohol for her. Cenk is against her on this stand. A 14-year-old Latino boy in Indiana was shot in his side by a passing car that yelled racial slurs before shooting. Right before this shooting, an SUV at a taco shop with two parents and two kids inside was shot at, but no one was hurt. Cenk talks about how these terrorists’ ironic mindset was probably based in recent GOP talking points about immigrants being dangerous criminals. Donald Trump is answering for his military expertise by touting his time at a military school he was sent to as an adolescent after assaulting his music teacher. Videos of Trump bashing McCain for being captured in Vietnam and telling Hugh Hewitt that he will be so good at “the military.”
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the man with the world’s largest penis. A writer in London posted a viral rant about the situation of immigration and acceptance of refugees. His rant was filled with sarcasm about people speaking English and allowing Western countries’ citizens to travel wherever they’d like. Drivers in China are known for killing pedestrians they’ve accidentally hit. After hitting someone, they respond by continuing to run over the person so that their punishment is less harsh. If the person is only injured, the driver will have to pay for their injuries and future issues for the rest of their lives. If the person is dead, they only have to pay for burial fees and spend very little time in jail. Talk about the laws incentives and disincentives.
