    I am a Democrat and an atheist. I used to be able to comment on RWN. Now I am unable to. I never was rude or nasty, I only debated with fact and questions. What are you afraid of Mr Hawkins, the truth?

      This is the same problem I have ran into. If you were not rude in your discourse, if you were meaningful and self assured, not psychotic in your presentation of an opposing view, then most likely you were not what guys like this want to paint the opposition.

    Just read an incredible book called ‘The Police Revolt of 2016’ by Lawrence C. Mackin. This book predicts everything that is happening in America today and pretty much what you guys have been saying too. From the stirring up of cop hatred by the likes of Sharpton and Eric Holder, to the behind the scenes plans of the Obama Administration. If you read nothing else this year, get this book. It’s a spell binding eye opener.

    Dear Mr. John Hawkins. I am a person on Facebook, and I can see you RIGHTWINGNEWS is posting images of 9/11 with it’s own captions. As a grieving person of 9/11, as so many others who have lost loved ones, I would greatly appreciate your images with phony captions be removed from Facebook and not posted again. Thank you.

    Sorry mister Hawkins, What part of you are a liar that i stated in my comment on an article was it that you don’t understand that got me blocked from commenting on the facebook page?

    Was it a reference to the lie about your article on ‘Mohammad’ being the number 1 baby name in the UK (when the source article you listed clearly stated it was round about 5th)…. or was it when you attacked transgender teenagers…

    Help me out!
