This Racist ‘Theory’ Is Now GOP Dogma


Daniel Acker/Bloomberg

The hoods are off, and Republicans are embracing the white supremacist “replacement theory.”

If you’re dismissing this as fear-mongering or click-bait, you probably missed Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House and renowned adulterer, espousing replacement theory rhetoric on Fox News earlier this week while talking to host Maria Baritromo, who always has time to offer a platform to dangerous conspiracy peddling. Speaking about Mexican immigrants coming to America during the pandemic, Gingrich said the “radical left” wants to “get rid of the rest of us” and would “love to drown traditional, classic Americans with as many people as they can who know nothing of American history, nothing of American tradition, nothing of the rule of law.”

He wasn’t talking about Donald Trump, notorious for being historically ignorant and profoundly incurious, but about those of us with darker skin, who are never seen as “traditional” or “classic” or “real Americans.” Gingrich, a craven political opportunist, parroted the talking points associated with “the great replacement” theory, also known as “white genocide,” which stipulates the white race and “Western civilization” are in dire threat of being weakened and ultimately usurped by immigrants of color, Muslims, feminists, and gays.

Quotes describing the disease infecting what passes for intellect in monsters like Gingrich, Trump, et al, run through the article like shit through a goose. Read it and be prepared – if you care not only for the heritage of “small d” democrats’ fight against racism; but, what’s coming down the pike led by a caravan of hypocrites spouting fear-stricken blather in a panic over the latest reporting from the Census Bureau.

Republican racists attack voting rights

…March 25, 2021, the Republican Georgia governor signed SB202, which changes the state’s election code to prevent a repeat of what occurred in November 2020 and January 2021, when the state voted Democratic for president for the first time in 28 years and for the U.S. Senate for the first time since 2000 by intentionally erecting barriers to the rights of African Americans, Latinx, other persons of color, young persons, and seniors and the disabled to exercise the most precious and fundamental of all rights, the right to vote…

[Following this are several paragraphs of changes in voting law removing or diminishing opportunities to vote]

The reactionary law passed in Georgia, along with the 253 bills to restrict or curtail voting rights introduced in 43 states, illustrates the critical importance of Senate passage, and the signing by President Biden, of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the already House-passed H.R. 1, the “For The People Act,” which, among other things, would protect and make it easier to vote in federal elections, end congressional gerrymandering, and increase safeguards against foreign interference.

With a Senate stacked deck, and SCOTUS even worse, the next few elections will be like the “good old days” when Dixiecrats made their last stand to stop Black folks from voting in the South. Only, now, the Republicrooks are trying it on, nationwide.

“Wokeification” scares the crap out of rightwing nutballs

A commander in the US Space Force was removed from his position following comments he made on podcasts promoting his new book that claims that Marxist ideologies are spreading in the US military…

“That wasn’t just prolific in social media, or throughout the country during this past year, but it was spreading throughout the United States military,” he added. “And I had recognized those narratives as being Marxist in nature.”

[Cue the theme from TWILIGHT ZONE]

He also said practices like mandatory diversity and inclusion training, which Republicans have also rejected, create divisiveness in the US, according to Military.com.

So far, it seems that opposing racist and sexist practices are dangerous symptoms of being “woke”. Guess I’ve been “woke” for several decades. I always thought I was standing up for the best advice we ever received from the founders of this nation. And beyond.

Boycott Jim Crow politics!


Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred

This summer’s Major League Baseball Draft and the All-Star Game won’t be held in Atlanta, MLB officials announced Friday.

The withdrawal of the two events from the city in July is in response to Georgia’s recently enacted voting restrictions, which critics, including President Biden, have denounced as “Jim Crow in the 21st century” because they say the legislation will disproportionately affect communities of color.

“I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB draft,” league commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”

“Fair access to voting continues to have our game’s unwavering support,” Manfred said.

Republicans around this land keep on playing their Jim Crow games with each other. Meanwhile, the National Pastime is taking their bat and ball back to Freedomland.

Extremists in Blue spark “concern” in folks politically deaf-and-blind

The John Birch Society was founded in 1958. Committed to racism, reactionary politics, bigotry and inequality…their organizers went forth as this fascist club grew into thousands. And a critical part of the American body politic they targeted was police departments.

The third, most recent generation of the KKK was founded in the 1950’s not only as a terrorist organization opposing the struggle for civil rights in the GOUSA…their terror was as likely to focus on white supporters of civil rights and equal opportunity for all non-white Americans…as Black and Brown activists leading those struggles. A critical part of their organizing tactics was inside police departments, North and South.

Reporters, editors, liberal politicians, conservative politicians…who say they had no idea this was going on…either had their heads up their butts or they are lying to you.

You didn’t have to play a leadership role in civil rights activism to know who was working to recruit cops. And soldiers, too, BTW. But, American cops are always the first rank of suppression to be brought into action against any kind of insurgency in this land. What would have been surprising would be fascist-minded gangs of racist thugs skipping over fertile soil to grow their poison.

This ain’t sanitized high school civics. This ain’t Officer Jimmy guiding schoolkids across a busy intersection on the way home from grammar school. And I’m not saying they’ve succeeded in reworking local PD’s into a Gestapo. But, they’d love to try…and succeed. Stepping back and gasping in shock and amazement is absurd.

Now, here’s a link to the article. Read what made it into the pantywaist press!

State of Delusion

Remember, folks. Before you whine about those of us who complain about living in a bigoted, politically backwards nation – this prig was ELECTED from a Northern state, supposedly with educational standards up to par, “news” services as good as any in the country.

So, what do they like about his style, eh? Haircut? Choice of ties?
