Racist Explains Trump’s Appeal to Racists

Attribution: KAMiKAZOW

White supremacist Jared Taylor -- I wish people would stop calling him and others like him white nationalists, a phrase they invented to make themselves sound better; they are white supremacists -- went on CNN and explained why Donald Trump appeals so much to "ordinary white people" -- that is, to racists like him. … [Read more...]

Sincere Kirabo on the Secular Social Justice Conference


Last weekend was the Secular Social Justice conference in Houston, Texas, and I so wish I'd been there. So many of my friends were there and it sounds like they had an amazing time. Sincere Kirabo was there and he has a long post about some of the panels and the discussion that took place. His introduction: … [Read more...]

Georgia Legislator Defends the KKK


Georgia State Sen. Tommy Benton has submitted a bill to protect the many confederate monuments in that state from being taken down and, predictably, is making some truly horrendous arguments in defending that bill. That includes defending the KKK as just a good law-and-order group that kept the rabble in line. … [Read more...]

Trump Spokeswoman as Racist as He Is


It should come as no surprise that Katrina Pierson, the absolutely ridiculous woman who serves as Donald Trump's campaign spokesperson, is every bit as racist as he is. She's already responded to questions about his plan to ban Muslim immigration by saying "So what? They're Muslims." Now look what was found on her Twitter page during the 2012 election: … [Read more...]

AZ Students Pose With Racial Slur on Shirts


A group of students from Desert Vista High School in Phoenix posed for a picture in t-shirts with letters on them. Dozens of students spelled out a positive message about the school. And then a group of six of them decided it would be a good idea to take a picture with their shirts spelling out "nigger" with the two G's replaced by asterisks. Didn't turn out so well. … [Read more...]

Trump Retweets From Neo-Nazi Account


Donald Trump's open flirtation with white supremacists and neo-Nazis continues. On Twitter, he retweeted something from @WhiteGenocideTM, who is an open neo-Nazi (the "white genocide" is a dead giveaway; these are the world-class morons who put up billboards saying that "diversity = white genocide). But he was making fun of Jeb Bush, so why should The Donald care that he's a Nazi? … [Read more...]

White Supremacists Loved Trump’s Reaction to Their Robocalls


The white supremacists who put out those robocalls urging people to vote for Donald Trump to preserve the white race were thrilled that Trump only half-heartedly disavowed their efforts while validating their anger over immigration. On CNN, Trump made a classic attempt to have his cake and eat it too, pretending to disavow the racists while claiming that they're legitimately angry: … [Read more...]

Ted Cruz ‘Honors’ Martin Luther King


Like most right-wing politicians these days, Ted Cruz is trying really hard to pretend that he's a disciple of Martin Luther King, who would agree with him on everything if only he were alive. The attempt is quite pathetic, of course. He invoked MLK during several campaign stops in New Hampshire and even wrote a whole column about it for a website called The Resurgent. … [Read more...]

Publisher Cancels Book About Washington’s Happy Slaves


A publisher that specializes in children's books actually published a book that portrayed George Washington's slaves as happy and treated well. After releasing that book and initially defending its publication, The Scholastic Corporation has bowed to pressure and pulled the book and will be refunding the purchase price for those who want to return it. … [Read more...]

How Fox News Celebrates Martin Luther King Day


Monday was Martin Luther King Day, the federal holiday that honors the late civil rights leader for his legacy of fighting for equality and justice. So naturally, when Fox News celebrates that legacy, they bring on his extremely right-wing niece and ask her about the entirely mythical "war on police" (pulled from the same orifice as the equally non-existent "war on Christmas"). … [Read more...]

Mercer: Trump Can Lead ‘White Lives Matter’ Movement


Ilana Mercer -- yes, the woman who once said that homosexuality "denudes sex of its Randian majesty and meaning" (and she meant Ayn Rand, for crying out loud) -- has a Worldnetdaily column in which she claims to be part of a "White lives matter" movement that shows her overwhelming concern for poor white men who are apparently the biggest victims of...well, something she doesn't like. And Donald Trump is the savior of this "invisible white army." … [Read more...]

When Black Protesters Seized a Federal Wildlife Refuge


Joseph Rose of the Oregonian newspaper has the story of a time when another group of protesters took over a federal wildlife refuge. It happened in Harris Neck, Georgia, where members of the African-American Gullah culture of former slaves had been screwed over by the government. Unlike those in Oregon, these men were unarmed. And they were black. And that seems to have made all the difference: … [Read more...]
