Dem Political Consultant Wants to Create Giant Holographic Joe Biden in Fortnite to Rally Young Voters

“Travis Scott’s takeover of Fortnite … if we could do that with Joe Biden,” she said.

A Democrat political consultant is floating the idea of inserting a giant Joe Biden hologram in Fortnite to generate some enthusiasm for the lackluster candidate.

Lis Smith, a former campaign advisor for Pete Buttigieg, suggested the idea during an interview with Politico.

“Stefan Smith, who had done digital work for Pete Buttigieg, cited the other day how Travis Scott’s take over of Fortnite and how that was a really creative way to think about it,” Smith told Politico in a video interview.

Smith and the interviewers were discussing how the Democratic National Convention could “hop from digital events on Instagram Live to Facebook to Twitch to Twitter,” as the coronavirus is making an in-person event seem far less likely.

For the keynote event, she said that perhaps they could take over Fortnite with a giant hologram of the candidate. Smith suggested that they could project the giant Biden against the Grand Canyon with a soundtrack provided by some of the “biggest musical artists in the game.”

“If we could do that with Joe Biden, you know, Joe Biden and project it against the Grand Canyon, that might be a little bit ambitious, but we could have exclusive musical content from some of the biggest musical artists in the game at this driving eyeballs to the convention so that people watch them.”

“Give America a giant avatar of President Obama introducing another avatar of Joe Biden while they stand amidst a digital rendering of America through the ages,” Smith suggested. “Give America Joe Biden accepting his nomination from a national monument like the Grand Canyon while the sun sets behind him.”

Smith was inspired by a concert inside Fortnite by Travis Scott last month — which boasted a massive audience of 12 million people. The elaborate virtual performance included a larger-than-life version of the rapper.

“Travis Scott’s takeover of Fortnite … if we could do that with Joe Biden,” she said before adding, “that might be a little ambitious.”

The ten minute performance broke the record for most viewers of a virtual performance in the game.

Gaming website Kotaku commented on Smith’s idea saying that “at the very least, ejaculating a giant Biden avatar onto one of the nation’s natural wonders might be a step up from hiding their candidate inside an honest-to-god podcast bunker.”

A heroic California restaurant owner blocked in a Los Angeles County health inspector’s car after he attempted to shut his business down for allowing outdoor dining, asserting that “if we can’t work, you can’t work.”

Carlos Roman, the owner of Bread & Barley in Covina, did not back down even after police arrived.

“He wants to come in here and say that no one can work, so he can’t work either,” Roman told the officer. “He decided to come today and take photos of the people outside and say that he was going to fine us,” he explained.

Roman refused to move his truck, telling the officer to go ahead and get her supervisor.

“This is what happens when people get desperate. I’m desperate. Who is going to pay her car payment? Who is going to pay my cook’s rent?” Roman asked the officer. “I want it to be hard on everyone. I want everyone to see how hard this sh-t is.”

The outraged owner demanded to know if the inspector and the officer got paychecks last week, asserting that his employees haven’t.

“You’re just doing your job right, we’re all in this together?” Roman asked the inspector. “When I go to the bank, can I tell the bank the health department said it’s ok and that I don’t have to pay you?”

“What do I tell my employees?” Roman shouted.

Roman is now facing two $500 fines for failure to comply and interfering with the health officer.

A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.

Woman Paints Over Black Lives Matter Mural in NYC, Shouts ‘Bill de Blasio Doesn’t Care About Black People!’

De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.

The state-sanctioned Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower in New York City has been vandalized by a protester for the third time since it was painted.

A black woman covered multiple letters of the bright yellow eyesore with multiple gallons of black paint while shouting “Refund the Police” and “Bill de Blasio doesn’t care about black people!”

The woman urged people to find Jesus while she worked, attempting to cover as much as she could before being detained and arrested.

The mural was also vandalized the previous day by four protesters who oppose the Marxist political message painted in the street by the mayor. The brave activists shouted “Blue Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter” as they painted over the city-approved vandalism.

Onlookers shouted at them hysterically as they did it.

NBC New York reports “the alleged vandals threw the paint in what appeared to be a coordinated effort involving about 10 people around 4 p.m. Friday. There were plans going around on social media with a group of people discussing doing the stunt.”

On Monday, the mural was splattered with red paint.

Unlike the rioters and looters that took over his city recently, he has made it a priority to arrest those who dare to vandalize it. In fact, Mayor de Blasio has seemingly been more concerned with protecting the tacky painting than about the rising crime in the city since he tied the hands of his police force.

De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.

War on Christianity: Virgin Mary Statue Honoring WWII Servicemen Lit on Fire in Massachusetts

Imagine if this was happening to any other religion.

Following three churches being lit ablaze across the US over the weekend, a statue of the Virgin Mary honoring fallen WWII soldiers has been lit on fire in Massachusetts.

The statue at St. Peter Parish in Dorchester was found charred around 10 p.m. Saturday.

“Fire investigators say it appears someone set fire to plastic flowers that were in the hands of the statue, which caused the face and upper body of the statue to be burned,” NBC Boston reports. “The charred statue startled parishioners on Sunday, with one man saying he was ‘very disturbed’ by the incident.”

“This is ridiculous,” a woman added. “This needs to stop.”

St. Peter Parish’s Pastor Currie said he would like to help the person who did this and believes that they are a “troubled soul.”

“This is obviously someone disturbed, someone who has a lot of trouble, a troubled soul,” he said. “But I know our Lady in Heaven is looking down on the soul, or whoever it might’ve been, and saying, ‘I love you! If you need help, come get help. We’re here for you.'”

The Boston Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 617-343-4335.

Over the weekend, three churches were burned across the nation.

A fire destroyed Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama Friday night.

On Saturday a man drove into a church in Ocala, Florida, before lighting it on fire.

Next, a fire destroyed the roof of 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California.

Had these been places of worship for any other religion, it would have been leading the news cycle for at least a week.
