ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK –In the seven decades since the Barnegat Inlet was shored up to protect mariners from dangerous shoals, scores of ships have passed through its impressive rock wall jetties. But it wasn’t until Hurricane Sandy that one of those jetties revealed its hidden mystery: a shipwreck preserved under tons of sand for nearly…

We’ve covered all the strange things that happen at Donald Trump rallies a lot recently.
With Trump still holding a commanding lead in the GOP primary (at least in national polls and in most state polls), it is important to know what his supporters think.
At a rally in Rock Hill, SC last Friday a Muslim woman named Rose Hamid was silently protesting Trump’s anti-refugee and pro racist policies was removed after standing up during the event. It became national news.
Hamid and other protestors were wearing yellow star shaped patches that seemed to be a reference to similar emblems worn by Jews in Nazi controlled termites during the Holocaust.
Reid Jeffries, a 21 year old native of Cincinnati and a student at the University of Mississippi was also at the same rally and he protested Trump in a truly hilarious way.
“I went to the Trump rally because I knew that years down the line, the whole world would look back at his campaign, whether successful or not, as important history,” Jeffries said in a message to RISE NEWS. “Also, we hear a lot about Trump via the media and I know that this isn’t the most fair representation of him as the media is bound to skew him one way or the other. So I knew by seeing him in person I would get a definite idea of what he is actually like.”
Jeffries said that he is moderately politically active. He’s worked as a House page for Republican Speaker John Boehner in the past but has since identified himself as an Independent.
Jeffries also loves pranks and decided to bring a “Trump likes Nickleback [sic]” (Nickelback is the proper spelling) sign to the rally, playing on the longstanding Internet meme.
Here’s what happened according to Jeffries:
“The event was electric. It started out like the Rolling Stones concert I went to earlier this year. The people there were full of energy and emotion. If you would have asked any one of them who was going to be the next president, every single one would have told you Trump without a stutter. When I talked to people individually they seemed normal. But when Trump spoke there was a mob mentality that came over them.”
After holding up his sign, Jeffries walked out in solidarity with the other protestors.
“When I walked out with one of the protestors, I remember people screaming ‘fuck you’, ‘terrorist’, ‘get the fuck out’. They were chanting USA which made no sense because I’m pretty sure he was an American citizen though I do not know this for certain.”

You may know her as “Tiara Girl” on campus. Annie Rudd, a senior at the University of Miami, has worn a tiara on her head every day for the past 8 years.
August 25, 2007, was the first day she ever wore a tiara at her 13th birthday, and the last day she left the house without it.
“The tiara was just too good of a look to let go,” Rudd said. “I don’t even realize its been 8 years of my life. It sort of just became my thing, and it worked.”
Before even realizing it, wearing a tiara became a daily routine.
Now 21-years-old, Rudd will graduate soon from UM with a major in psychology and a minor in art. She hopes to purse a master’s degree in family and marriage counseling.
In 2012 , Rudd was featured on lifetime’s reality show “Prom Queen,” crowned prom queen at Miami Beach Senior High School. At University of Miami, Rudd has become a sort of local celebrity to students at the campus.
“At UM, I’m known as Tiara Girl,” Rudd said. “We have this Facebook page called UMiami Secrets and they would post about me a lot. There was one that said, ‘OMG I just saw tiara girl for the first time. Now I know how Hogwarts felt when they first saw Harry Potter.’”
She never leaves the house without her tiara, she may forget but it never takes more than a few steps out of the door to remember.
“It’s basically second nature.” Rudd said. “I don’t even realize its on when I go out, but people will give me ugly looks sometimes. Some people don’t get the tiara and assume the worst, but once they meet me they understand I’m not stuck up.”
For Rudd, the tiara exemplifies that she enjoys everything life has to offer and lives with no regrets. Her story is a reminder that it’s okay to be who you are without living in fear of what others think of you.
“The tiara is a great conversation starter,” Rudd said. “Meeting and making friends is super important at our age. It’s all about the connections we have later on in life.”
Rudd said that although she enjoys the tiara as a fundamental part of her life, some people don’t take her seriously as a result.
“People definitely think it’s a little immature, but I don’t care. I only have one life,” Rudd said.
The tiara isn’t coming off anytime soon.
“I definitely can’t see myself not wearing it, it’s just a part of my identity now,” Rudd said. “It’s all a learning experience. I like it and that’s all that matters. There’s nothing to regret about it.”Post Views: 1,259
