Неожиданно забрезжила надежда, что морок, в который мы вкатились, может быть скоро рассеется. Как дурной кошмар. Очень хотелось бы. Даже левые (не левые-левые, а просто "либералы" американского разлива) кажется начинают понимать охватившее страну безумие.


Here’s the story, as reported by San Diego’s NBC affiliate:

It all started about two weeks ago near a Black Lives Matter rally in Poway when Emmanuel Cafferty, a San Diego Gas and Electric employee, encountered a stranger on the roadway. The stranger followed Cafferty and took a picture of him as his arm hung out the window of his company truck.

The picture made the rounds on Twitter, accompanied by a claim Cafferty was making a “white power” hand gesture made popular by white supremacist groups.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, the gesture — made by forming a circle with the thumb and index finger, and extending and separating the other three fingers — has been used in recent years by white supremacists to form the letters W and P, but has also long been used as a sign signifying “OK” . . . . Therefore it shouldn't be assumed to be a white supremacy symbol unless there is other evidence to support those claims, according to the ADL. Cafferty claims he was just cracking his knuckles.

Soon after the encounter, a supervisor of Cafferty's told him he was suspended and that further action may be taken after an investigation. A few days later, he says he was fired.
