Cops Blow a Hole Through Vivek Ramaswamy’s Iowa Fender Bender Story


2024 presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy said Thursday that he was the victim of an intentional attack by two protesters who he claimed had driven their vehicle into an unoccupied campaign car at a coffee shop in Iowa near where he was campaigning. But police there told a different story—saying their investigation turned up “no evidence to substantiate” the idea that the driver intentionally hit the campaign’s rental vehicle. “[The driver] stated she was not in the area to protest, she did not know who the vehicle she struck belonged to, she did not intentionally back into the vehicle, and she did not flee the scene of the accident,” Grinnell police said in a statement. They were subsequently issued a summons for “unsafe backing.” Despite the police statement, Ramaswamy’s campaign said it stood by the initial narrative it had shared.

Trump’s anti-immigrant comments draw rebuke


Former President Donald Trump said in a recent interview that undocumented immigrants were “poisoning the blood of our country,” using language that is often employed by White supremacists and nativists in comments that have drawn rebuke from one prominent civil rights group.


“Nobody has ever seen anything like we’re witnessing right now. It is a very sad thing for our country,” Trump told the right-leaning news site The National Pulse in a video interview published last week. “It’s poisoning the blood of our country. It’s so bad, and people are coming in with disease. People are coming in with every possible thing that you could have.”


Trump’s comments, which gained traction online this week, drew condemnation from the Anti-Defamation League, whose leader called the remarks “racist, xenophobic and despicable.”


“Insinuating that immigrants are ‘poisoning the blood of our country’ echoes nativist talking points and has the potential to cause real danger and violence. We have seen this kind of toxic rhetoric inspire real-world violence before in places like Pittsburgh and El Paso. It should have no place in our politics, period,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said.


He continued, “And when anyone has a large platform, they need to be careful with their voice, but when you’re the former president of the United States, you absolutely need to recognize your responsibility because this kind of rhetoric is explosive and must end, full stop.”


Since launching his first campaign for president in 2015, Trump has often derided immigrants in inflammatory terms, but the phrase “poisoning the blood” echoed language used by White supremacists, who fixate on so-called blood purity. Adolf Hitler wrote about the “contamination of the blood” or “blood poisoning” in Mein Kampf.
