DEMOCRATS DIVIDED ON VICTORY IN NOVEMBER
With the Republican presidential race turning into Wrestlemania, high ranking Democrat officials are confident that a Democrat will maintain control of the White House come November. However, the “rank-and-file” of the Democratic party do not share the same assurance. Dana Smith, a Hillary Clinton campaign worker, tried to extend a hand of peace to a Bernie Sanders supporter at the Democratic Party Convention this weekend. Upon assuring the Sanders supporter that the White House would remain under Democratic control, Smith was rebuffed with a sharp “if she’s not indicted first”. Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison is not sure who will end up in the White House, but knows that “it’s going to be an ugly election”.
5 INJURED, 13 ARRESTED IN KKK MARCH
A Ku Klux Klan march turned violent on Saturday when the Klan clashed with counterprotesters in Anaheim, California. The Klan arrived in their vans around noon, choosing to forego the traditional white robes. The minute they got out, counterprotesters rushed the van, attacking and severely injuring several Klan members. Police arrested seven of the attackers and six Klan members. Some of the victims are in critical condition, but most have been stabilized. In a Facebook post, Anaheim police said they would have monitored the Klan’s demonstration for violations of the law.
CLINTON TAKES SOUTH CAROLINA IN LANDSLIDE VICTORY
In her first undisputed win since the start of the primaries, Hillary Clinton won South Carolina with an overwhelming margin of 174,000 votes. Her “firewall” of African American voters held strong as Bernie Sanders performed poorly with that demographic. The former Secretary of State now looks poised to take on Super Tuesday. With primaries happening in 11 states simultaneously, many of them in Clinton’s territory of the South, Clinton’s three primaries position her very well to take a majority of the states on Tuesday. While Bernie Sanders shocked with a major win in New Hampshire, he has not been able to connect with minority voters. Super Tuesday will be a test to see how well the Vermont Senator is able to build those connections.
JNU STUDENT UNION PRESIDENT ASSAULTED IN PATIALA COURT HOUSE
In the latest development of the anti-nationalist scandal at Jawaharlal Nehru University, JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was beaten by men in lawyer’s robes in the Patiala court house on Saturday. Initial reports from Delhi Police deny that the attack ever happened. A revised assessment placed the blame on an escort police part from another district. A six member panel organized to investigate the incident said that despite directions given to police to give Kumar good security, guards still let the two attackers into Kumar’s room.
