“On Monday, Stone shared the now-deleted image, but, luckily, screenshots never die! The image featured the words “Space Force ― in space no one can hear you lie” with the accompanying caption: “I love this – proud to be in this crew – but the only lies being told are by liberal scumbags.”
Keep on rocking with the Huffington Post!
Wee, sleekit, cow’rin’, tim’rous beastie, O what a panic’s in thy breastie!
❝ It wasn’t so much a dog whistle as it was an airhorn. Or perhaps a primal scream. But whatever it was, Laura Ingraham’s forceful denunciation of “massive demographic changes” served as another raw example of a Fox News host echoing white nationalist language.
Perhaps it was a glimpse into President Donald Trump’s well of support, too.
❝ The Fox News audience is almost 100% white, according to Nielsen. And on the channel’s highest-rated shows, the politics of white anxiety play out practically every day, as hosts and guests warn about the impacts of immigration and minimize or mock the perspectives of people of color…
“The America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore,” Ingraham said Wednesday night. “Massive demographic changes have been foisted on the American people, and they are changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don’t like.”
Ingraham said “this is related to both illegal and legal immigration.”
Nixon’s Southern Strategy has come home. Another president who – no doubt – also deserves to be impeached has taken up the racist cudgel. The Fake President marches on in his campaign to squash democratic opportunity. His Republican allies in Congress, whether through cowardice or shared racist conviction, march proudly at his side.
Folks ignorant enough to believe “It can’t happen here” had better get off their rusty-dusties – because once the Klan-types are through with reinstalling racist officialdom they’ll be coming for anyone who isn’t wholly subservient to their version of law.
Same as it ever was…and the BBC is almost as polite as the CBC.
In what may be the worst decision since the infamous Korematsu case, when the Supreme Court upheld the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, the court Tuesday by a 5-4 vote upheld President Donald Trump ‘s Muslim travel ban.
Like the Korematsu decision, Trump v. Hawaii elevates legal formalities as a way to avoid addressing what everyone understood is really at issue here — namely, prejudice.
Chief Justice John Roberts’s majority opinion downplays Trump’s anti-Muslim bias, focusing instead on the president’s legal power to block immigration in the name of national security…
…We might well be celebrating the fact that the Supreme Court had finally and expressly repudiated Korematsu, which it had never fully done before. Instead, Roberts’s declaration reads like a desperate attempt to change the subject.
The truth is that this decision and Korematsu are a pair: Prominent instances where the Supreme Court abdicated its claim to moral leadership.
RTFA. Please! Noah Feldman cuts through the breast-beating of Trump and his peers. Pimps for bigotry.
I’ve made the pilgrimage to Auschwitz. The sign was still over the entrance. Another old tradition brought to a new audience in the United States.
Fox phony news
Fox News apologized Tuesday after receiving a torrent of criticism over the network’s use of photos of various players for the Philadelphia Eagles kneeling in prayer, creating the misleading impression that they were demonstrating during the national anthem.
Fox and President Mouth remain interchangeable sources of fake news.
Meanwhile, don’t expect the NBA Champions to visit the White House until Trump’s racism is fumigated and the source is gone.
The rest of us suffer through it.
