Kane, the big red machine, is going to be the newest mayor of Knox County, Tennessee. Boy did this get me excited! Full disclosure, I watched WWE until my late 20’s, and Kane and Undertaker were among my favorites, so this got me a little pumped up! I just may need to move to Tennessee now.
Glenn Jacobs (Republican) defeated Linda Haney (Democrat), via count-out, for the Tennessee Heavyweight Mayor Belt. Here is a campaign ad for his race…
If you skipped the video, the highlights are:
To tag team with local businesses to have everything they need.
To allign with teachers and administrators to help the schools create a competitive and world class work force that will attract businesses and create jobs.
To choke slam the government, so that it remains open and transparent so that every citizen in Know County has a voice.
To FIGHT to keep government small and keep taxes low.
In WWE, Kane would come to the ring, raise his arms very dramatically, then drop the quickly as flames spew from the corners. AND HE HAS FLAMES IN HIS LOGO! Had I lived in Tennessee, I absolutely would’ve voted for him. I would like to finish this by wishing Glenn Jacobs the best of luck, and congratulations.
Tommy Robinson, founder of the English Defense League, has been released on bail after winning an appeal. Tommy was jailed for “contempt of court” while streaming on Facebook live, outside a courthouse. He was trying to show the defendants on an recently finished trial about a child rape gang case. For further context, what he was streaming was all already public knowledge, however the case had “reporting restrictions”. Robinson is a free speech advocate and has been a harsh critic of Muslims in the UK, stating they are not compatible with the culture and customs of the UK. Here is the video about him being arrested…
After watching this, I’ve seen no reason for him to be arrested, but I am no master at UK law. Immediately after his arrest, he was sentenced to 13 months. He also had a previous suspended sentence, for filming a trial where four men where convicted of gang raping a 16 year old girl.
Now with most of the media, you’ll see little sympathy from them, and instead find things like this…
The media typically uses “far-right” or “alt-right” to discredit people that don’t agree with them. Needless to say, I’m a bit skeptical about what they say about him after seeing far-right plastered everywhere. After some digging, and a lot of hit pieces on the guy, I found this presentation from him. It outlines his life and his constant battle with the law, and is worth a watch if you want to know his perspective on the matters, which puts this new arrest into context.
