Trump Supporters Confronted After 'Calling Five-Year-Old Girl a Terrorist'

A Palestinian-American family filmed the moment they confronted a group of Donald Trump supporters after one man allegedly called their 5-year-old cousin “a terrorist”. Rawan Yasin shared the video on her Twitter account after the dramatic encounter with the man and two women on a street in Los Angeles. The incident sparked after Yasin’s family attended a pro-Palestine demonstration nearby. The protest was organised after the American President’s decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last week. In the video, Yasin approaches a man, wearing shorts with the pattern of the American flag, who is standing next to a parked car and states: “You called my 5-year-old cousin a terrorist,” to which he responds, “Looks like one. It doesn’t matter what age you are.” Meanwhile, a woman wearing a pink “Donald Trump: Make America Great Again” T-shirt can be seen also filming the exchange with Yasin on her phone. Yasin repeats, “You’re calling a 5-year-old a terrorist" to which the woman filming responds, “But this is America, we can say whatever we want. Freedom of speech.” The man in the video was later identified as Trump supporter Johnny Turano, who goes by the nickname “Based Spartan,” Raw Story reported, while the woman filming Yasin was reportedly his daughter Bianca, a social work student at California State University, Fullerton. In the video, Yasin’s cousin is seen holding a “Dump Trump” placard. Turano, a single father from La Puente, California, has previously described alt-left protesters as “cowards”, before distancing himself from the alt-right completely, Vanguard reported.

Squeaky Rescued Otter Pup Joins Oregon Zoo1m08s

Squeaky Rescued Otter Pup Joins Oregon Zoo

A sea otter pup rescued in California took up residence at the Oregon Zoo on Friday, December 8. The pup was rescued in late October in Morro Bay Harbor, California, at less than two weeks old. The pup is simply known as 805 for now, assigned to him by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s rescue and care program. The otter could not be paired with a surrogate mother, so the US Fish and Wildlife Service deemed him non-releasable. The pup now weighs 14 pounds at about two months old. He also has started grooming himself, though his caregivers still need to help him, and he eats a seafood diet, both signs he’s doing well in his new home, the zoo said. “Right now he definitely has a preference for shrimp,” said Oregon Zoo marine life keeper Sara Morgan in a press release. “He seemed insulted when I tried to offer him squid.” Zoo visitors should expect to see the young otter in January when he joins the adult sea otters.

'Drunk' Locals Threaten Manus Island Asylum Seekers at New Accommodation3m02s

'Drunk' Locals Threaten Manus Island Asylum Seekers at New Accommodation

Refugees and asylum seekers on Manus Island said locals arrived at their new accommodation on December 10 and threatened them with violence. Although media and aid groups have been prevented from entering the new accommodation, locals were filmed entering the supposedly secure compound at Hillside Haus and verbally abusing men at West Lorengau Haus. In the early hours of Sunday, four men reportedly approached the main gate of the West Haus accommodation where refugees from the former Australian-run Manus Island detention centre were forcibly relocated to. The video shows one man, who appears to be drunk, at West Haus brandishing what looks like a metal pipe and telling the asylum seekers through the gate “you’re dead meat” and “Mi bai killim yu”, which ABC reported is New Guinean pidgin for “I will kill you”. Security stopped the man from entering the compound and as he walked away he continues to hurl abuse before launching the pipe at the side of the accommodation. In another incident at Hillside, another drunk man, reportedly a landowner, was let inside the facility. Video shows him saying “give me chicken and everything” before walking into the mess hall. Later, refugees clarified “this man was not dangerous, just drunk. He was saying I love you. He was saying we are in his land and that he will protect and support us”, but still questioned the efficacy of security if he had malevolent intentions. Iranian journalist and refugee Behrouz Boochani said two nights earlier a local approached the compound demanding the men must leave. A similar incident occurred at Port Moresby around the same time. Boochani noted that the new accommodations were in close proximity to small villages in the island’s township and that tension had escalated as the result of procured land for the facilities. Prior to being forcibly moved, asylum seekers and refugees repeatedly expressed concern about violence from locals and cited the lack of security at the new accommodation. About 60 refugees were flown to Port Moresby from December 13 to be assessed and processed for resettlement in the US, according to notices published by refugees. Credit: Anonymous via Storyful
