“Wanted” posters for a top Trump advisor have appeared in the streets of Washington, D.C.
“They are handing out these flyers to Stephen Miller’s neighbors at the luxe CityCenterDC,” tweeted Rachel Sadon of DCist.

“White nationalist, Trump lackey, and architect of both the Muslim ban and Family separation,” the poster says.
The poster declares Miller “guilty” of kidnapping children, crimes against humanity, and being a Nazi. Ridiculous rhetoric like this has become par for the course for the political left, to the point where it is difficult to take them seriously.
Not only is the poster over the top, it is factually inaccurate. The “family separation” policy has been in place for the past two administrations. Only now have the Democrats decided to care. Moreover, there was never a “Muslim ban.” Trump implemented a halt on travel from some predominantly Muslim nations. Nationality, not religion, was the disqualifying factor for travel to the U.S. from those nations. This pesky nuance is ignored by the left.
The protestors did not stop at hanging “Wanted” flyers. A crowd also gathered around his apartment.
“Say it loud, say it clear: immigrants are welcome here,” they shouted.

In the past week, Trump administration officials, including Stephen Miller and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nileson have been confronted by angry mobs in public for the crime of working for Trump.
Over the weekend, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for public harassment of Trump officials. Apparently, deranged anti-Trumpers heard her message loud and clear.
City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
