Lena Dunham Compares Trump to Mass Murderer Dylann Roof

Lena Dunham called Donald Trump racist in a tweet on Monday before drawing parallels between the president and white supremacist/mass murderer Dylann Roof.

Dunham was responding to a series of tweets from “Full Frontal” writer Travon Free, who questioned how CNN identifies people as racists. Free concluded his thread by writing, “I’ll end this by trying to help every journalist and analyst in America: [Donald Trump] is a racist. Feel free to take it from there.”

Dunham agreed with Free, and added, “Not only is he a racist, but he’s a racist with untreated mental illness. So under [different] circumstances he’s Dylann Roof.”

In 2015, Roof opened fire at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. He killed nine members of the predominately African-American church and was convicted of 33 federal hate crime charges before being sentenced to death.

“If @realDonaldTrump is not a racist who is? What do white people think a racist is?… This is one of the overwhelming problems with American media today. Y’all are afraid to call a racist what he is. A racist,” Free tweeted. “I’ll end this by trying to help every journalist and analyst in America: @realDonaldTrump is a racist. Feel free to take it from there.”

Actress Lena Dunham blasted President Donald Trump on social media Monday, comparing the president to convicted mass murderer Dylann Roof in a Twitter exchange with a late-night writer.

“Not only is he a racist but he’s a racist with untreated mental illness,” Dunham replied to the last message in Free’s thread. “So under diff circumstances he’s Dylann Roof.”

Roof, a self-proclaimed racist and white supremacist, was convicted in 2016 of the murder of nine African-American churchgoers at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston,

Racist mass-murderer Dylann Roof doesn’t want to die after all

The far right has its own web, but what use is a site no-one will serve?

After Charlottesville and the murder of Heather Heyer, hitherto Nazi-friendly internet companies have found their boots and their banhammers. The angry right has for some time anticipated this eventuality, and colonized or established replicas of key services and platforms. 8chan, Voat and Gab are the most well-known examples, respectively resembling 4chan, Reddit and Twitter.

Dylann Roof wants to fire his lawyers because they’re not white

Racist mass murderer Dylann Roof wants to fire his lawyers — calling them “political and biological enemies” who can’t be trusted — because one is Jewish and the other is Indian.

The convicted Charleston church shooter filed a handwritten request with the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday from death row to have his appointed attorneys replaced on account of their ethnicity, The State newspaper reports.

“My two currently appointed attorneys, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani, are Jewish and Indian, respectively. It is therefore quite literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests relating to my case,” Roof explained in his motion.

“Trust is a vital component in an attorney client relationship, and is important to the effectiveness of the defense,” he said. “Because of my political views, which are arguably religious, it will be impossible for me to trust two attorneys that are my political

Dylann Roof to transfer to federal prison after murder case concludes for Emanuel AME shooting

Convicted mass killer Dylann Roof will be sent to a federal prison to await execution once his state murder case concludes next week with a scheduled guilty plea, according to newly filed court documents. 

Roof, 22, is expected to plead guilty to state murder charges on April 10, sparing his nine victims’ loved ones a second grueling death penalty trial and ensuring he spends the remainder of his life in prison.

Roof was convicted in January of 33 federal charges, including hate crimes, and sentenced to death for killing nine black worshippers at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church. However, 9th Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson also was pursuing the death penalty for nine state murder charges, proceedings that had been on hold since the end of Roof’s federal trial.

She let families of Roof’s victims know last week that she is accepting a guilty plea instead.

Roof has been held at the Charleston County jail while
