Polish Politician Makes Seemingly Threatening Gesture Towards President Donald Trump

Published

on

A Polish politician shocked political observers after tweeting a photo of him making a gun gesture towards U.S. President Donald Trump’s back last week on December 5, 2019.

Infowars reported that Donald Tusk, the president of the European People’s Party, published the photo in a tweet on which casually stated, “Despite seasonal turbulences our transatlantic friendship must last.”

This photo also pictured the back of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and appears to have taken place at last week’s NATO summit, which ended on Wednesday.

The New York Post reported that many social media users were caught off guard by the photo, which was viewed as a death threat.

“[Outgoing] European Union Council Leader Donald Tusk tweets himself holding 2 fingers against Trump’s back like a GUN,” one user tweeted while tagging the FBI, adding, “Is that a THREAT?”

“We all know that the Globalist EU opposes Trump, but this goes too far,” the user continued.

Another user followed up by asking, “Is this some sort of veiled EU threat aimed at the US?”

Twitter user @AsiaNietop made reference to a Pennsylvania law which recently declared that the “gun-like hand gesture” is a threat of “intimidation” and a crime of disorderly conduct.

Tusk is staunch opponent of Brexit and dislikes President Trump.

During a speech back in September, he lambasted Trump’s nationalist political views as “false” and “dangerous.” He also demanded that Trump “stop lying.”

However, The Post highlighted that many Poles on Twitter apologized for Tusk’s threatening gesture.

“As a Polish citizen I am embarrassed for this person,” tweeted @RZbijowski.

“Dear @realDonaldTrump, Poland apologizes for Donald Tusk,” @MikiPoznan added.

Tusk, while reasonable on certain policy matters dealing with economics, represents a brand of conservatism that must go by the wayside in these times of civilizational struggle.

By taking wishy-washy stances on populism and not fully embracing effective populist figures such as Donald Trump, Tusk and his ilk would indirectly play a role in bringing mass migration policies —which have already done considerable damage in Western Europe— to the EU’s otherwise solid Eastern bloc.

Thankfully, the current Polish government has a strong populist coalition that will not buy into globalist policies and strive to maintain Poland’s national identity.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
