Cenk hosting today. In Sweden, a group of hipsters doing a photoshoot were confronted by police after they were notified that a group of terrorists were collecting. These hipsters were fully bearded, scaring the caller into thinking they were Muslim terrorists. A Black city councilman in Texas was approached by police that were called to his front yard on suspicion of drugs. He and his friends were out front practicing their frat’s step routine when he was tasered by the cops that were trying to arrest him. Video of the confrontation. A man shot and killed his wife in their home in the middle of the night when he suspected a home invader. While investigating the disturbance, he shot her in the chest with his shotgun. In another story, a woman called the paramedics to help her bleeding sister at home. When police responded to the call, the family’s terrier ran at the cop, which made him shoot, hitting their 4 year old daughter.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. After Ben Carson claimed to have been held up by a gunman in a Popeyes restaurant more people are investigating the validity of the story. Video of Ana calling out Carson’s story on the day it broke. Tommy Christopher wrote an article asking for proof. According to Baltimore police, they haven’t been able to find a police report of the incident. An anti-Islam protest in AZ was held over the weekend where the participants showed up with automatic rifles. Ana reads some of their deplorable quotes. Members of the pro-Muslim group to oppose the anti-Islam protest also showed up with guns. Another anti-Muslim protest in Ohio only had one woman, who was approached by Muslims that happily invited her into their mosque to learn more about Islam. In response to Texas’ law that allows concealed carry on college campuses, the movement #cocksnotglocks has sparked up where women carry big, pink dildos on campus. In response, gun advocates littered their website with angry messages, along with death threats. Ironically, carrying sex toys on campus could get them in trouble with the school.
