Patrick J. Adams jumps to Meghan Markle's defence following racist comments

US politician SPARKS OUTRAGE after posting 'racist' photo of Meghan Markle as Cheddar Man

Over the weekend, Republican politician Paul Nehlen reportedly tweeted out a since-removed image of Prince Harry alongside Markle, whose face was replaced by an image of Cheddar Man, a 10,000-year-old prehistoric human with dark skin and blue eyes who lived in what is now the U.K. He captioned the photo "Honey, does this tie make my face look pale?" Paul had shared an image of Meghan Markle with a superimposed picture of Cheddar Man onto her face - the oldest skeleton to be found in the United Kingdom by scientists at the Natural History Museum who was revealed to have dark skin.

Patrick J. Adams has come to his former Suits co-star Meghan Markle's defence after U.S. politician Paul Nehlen shared a racist Twitter post about the royal-bride-to-be.

Among those joining the campaign against Nehlen's Twitter ban were white nationalist podcast host Mike "Enoch" Peinovich and Andrew Anglin, owner of the neo-Nazi site Daily Stormer. "In response, I lampooned the article". He wrote in one tweet that he is reading "The Culture of Critique", a book about Jewish culture widely considered to be anti-Semitic, CNN reported. "He's dead to us", Breitbart chief Steve Bannon said. "74 are Jews", he wrote, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Israeli police recommend indictments of Netanyahu in corruption cases
These police recommendations come in wake of an ongoing campaign by Netanyahu to discharge the credibility of his investigators. While an indictment alone would not legally oblige Netanyahu to resign, he would likely face mounting pressure to do so.

In recent months, Nehlen had become more transparent with his sympathies and loyalties to the white nationalist alt-right movement and had engaged in a series of public meltdowns after critics called him out for his clearly anti-Semitic messages and media appearances.

Nehlen "has spent months curating an image of a sometimes ironic, but most certainly honest, white nationalist willing to say things meant to push populist nationalism into the discourse", writes the Southern Poverty Law Center. Twitter, however, suspended the politician's account. He cited comments by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who accused Twitter of censoring conservatives but not liberals. "Social media companies have usurped this freedom, and we intend to give it back to the American people", Nehlen said in a statement in December.
