She later tweeted about the nickname 'Karen' being retired for 'dangerous white women' after revealing some of the threatening emails and texts she has received since her first controversial tweet.

They just pulled down a monument to the Ten Commandments, chained it to a pickup, and drove off with it being dragged down the street. Flathead 411 posted a video (credit: Dusty Jones) of workers placing the monument, abandoned in the middle of the street across the yellow line, into a skid steer bucket to be transported out of the way of...
