SRN Boos the News: No, Ricketts did not really “denounce white supremacist groups”

At his press conference on September 30, Governor Pete Ricketts made a statement that should have made local headlines. An AP reporter asked him two questions about white supremacist groups on the heels of President Trump’s comment that the Proud Boys should “stand back and stand by.” I don’t know about you, but if I […]

Right now it’s the white-tailed deer, and you did not know that, but you do know that the entire damn state worships the phallus of the white man, so let’s just make it official. A simple blog entry could not begin to detail the […]

I wasn’t planning on sharing this publicly but maybe this will help some people realize what is going on throughout the United States, and right here in our hometown.

Never have I seen a police presence or use of force as I did over this past weekend while visiting family. I attended the protests on both Friday and Saturday night at 72nd and dodge.

I was arrested while participating in the march in solidarity with Portland and to demand justice for James Scurlock, Saturday 7/25. Because so many have already given their accounts of what happened during the peaceful protest and on the bridge during the initial police action, I will skip that part. My story of those events […]
