WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 03: A phalanx of Metropolitan Police Department officers create a barrier around white nationalists and neo-Nazis as they rally in front of the White House December 3, 2017 in Washington, DC. The facists held an anti-immigration rally in response to this week's acquittal of an undocumented Mexican immigrant in the 2015 shooting death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

What happened?

Kate Steinle was a 32-year-old woman walking in San Francisco with her father when a bullet struck her and she died. Because the gun was fired by an illegal immigrant who was a felon, her death has become a rallying cry for people advocating for stricter immigration policies and border security.

Why are Nazis in the news again?

Around 25 white nationalists gathered at the White House on Monday to protest the not guilty verdict for Mexican national Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who was deported five times before firing the shot that ricocheted before killing Steinle.

On today’s show, Doc expressed his frustration over how white supremacists are trying to co-opt Steinle’s tragic death to push a neo-Nazi agenda.
