    The director of the Homeland Security Department’s office of faith-based partnerships has resigned following a CNN report on racially inflammatory remarks he made before joining the federal government. Rev. Jamie Johnson was appointed in April to lead DHS’ Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships, which works with churches and community organizations on disaster response. […] In one clip posted by CNN, Johnson said, “America’s black community … has turned America’s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.” …
  • Trump voters were motivated by racism, not economic anxiety (ultrabarf alert)

    The theory goes that Trump was the only politician to speak to the working class’s financial fears, exacerbated by the daunting forces of globalization, immigration and mechanization. This ignores Trump’s overt sexist and racist appeals during the campaign and repackages them as legitimate economic grievances. In this world, it wasn’t Trump’s conflation of Mexican immigrants with rapists that motivated his supporters; it was his criticism of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Austin Mayor Steve Adler announced he will not participate in this year’s Veterans Day Parade, held Saturday on Congress Avenue, because some groups signed up to march will be carrying the Confederate flag. “Veterans Day should only be about honoring United States Military Veterans,” Adler said in a statement Thursday morning. “Symbols of racism, Civil War secession, and white supremacy should not be forgotten or erased, but they need to be remembered and studied in museums and classrooms not cheered and applauded in parades.”

    Minneapolis has elected two black transgender representatives to its City Council, adding to what advocacy groups have described as a banner election for transgender people in public office. Andrea Jenkins easily won the race Tuesday night for an open seat in south Minneapolis, with roughly 73 percent of the vote. Jenkins, a 56-year-old poet and historian who transitioned in her 30s, spent years as a policy aide to two previous council members in the same ward. Phillipe Cunningham’s victory took longer because of Minneapolis’ instant-runoff voting system. But by Wednesday afternoon, the city announced Cunningham — a 29-year old transgender...

    An unnamed woman was recorded calling a Taco Bell employee racist for not letting her order french fries. The video, reportedly taken in an unidentified Taco Bell restaurant in the U.S., shows a possibly drunk woman looking up at the menu while trying to order a medium-sized french fries at the counter. The employee tells the woman that they do not carry french fries, to which the woman responds, “You’re Burger King, you don’t sell french fries?”

Two openly transgender candidates won races as well as the first Sikh mayor in New Jersey and first African-American mayors in major cities.
  • Joy Reid Accuses Gillespie of Scare Tactic: "Brown People all in MSN--Um, MS-13"

    MSNBC. MS-13. Same struggle? In an amusing stumble on her MSNBC show this morning, Joy Reid momentarily seemed to confuse her own network with the notorious MS-13 criminal gang. Claiming that Virginia Republican candidate Ed Gillespie is running as a “neo-Confederate,” Reid said that he is using racial scare ads, “where he’s saying brown people are coming to kill you, because they’re all in MSN –" Reid seemed about to say “MSNBC,” before catching herself: “MS-13.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    As we have from the start, we are committed to supporting DFA's endorsed candidates in Virginia through election day, but we cannot remain silent as an outdated faction of national and state Democratic Party staffers and consultants run the same old, broken, and racist playbook that lost Democrats over 1000 elected offices since 2008 and allowed a bigoted billionaire to squeak into the White House last Fall.

  • The Democrats’ use of the race card does real harm

    Washington Post ^ | November 1, 2017 | By Ed Rogers
    Recently, a few high-profile events have illustrated the Democratic Party’s overdependence on the race card and Democrats’ need to wallow in identity politics. Since President Trump came to office, the left has ramped up its attacks on Republicans. Democrats are trying to rally liberal activists and a cooperative media to cast most everyone within the GOP as racists who sympathize with white supremacists. Democrats howl about Republicans, make everything about race or “diversity,” and don’t notice that voters are turned off. In the process, Democrats are further alienating many rational, thoughtful voters. It is easy to see that liberals’ insistence...

    Get ready to watch the attempted crucifixion of Stephen K. Bannon. Politically, that is. Bannon is being targeted by a big-money PAC tied to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The GOP establishment has, in fact, declared “open warfare” on Bannon and any candidates, for the U.S. Senate on down, that take up his mantel of “America First.” They will find well-funded opponents in the primaries, according to Washington insiders.

    On Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN political commentator Angela Rye was the latest liberal analyst to claim that President Donald Trump disproportionately targets black women for ridicule. And on Friday, CNN commentator John Avlon similarly suggested Trump was targeting white women. Even though, as previously noted by NewsBusters, there have been many white men and white women who have also been attacked by the President according to a list compiled by the New York Times. And even liberal MSNBC host Chris Hayes has described Trump's list of targets as "a wide variety of people."On Monday night, during a discussion of the...

    “Wacky?” That’s racist! That was Chris Matthews implication on this evening’s Hardball, discussing President Trump’s use of the w-word regarding Rep. Frederica Wilson in the context of the kerfuffle over Trump’s phone conversation with the widow of fallen soldier La David Johnson. Said Matthews: “I have a feeling that wouldn’t be addressed to a white guy.” View the video here.

    Following this week’s dispute between White House chief of staff John Kelly and Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), senior adviser and national spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre accused the Trump administration of trying to “dehumanize” a black woman in every controversy. “For every Trump controversy, there seems to be a black woman that this administration wants to take down publicly, dehumanize and really just try to destroy. And it’s incredibly dangerous, troubling and disgusting. You have April Ryan, you have Susan Rice, you have Jemele Hill, you have Maxine Waters, and now Frederica Wilson,” Jean-Pierre told host Joy Reid. Jean-Pierre claimed the...

    On Real Time on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher was again hitting the issue of race from the left as he promoted claims that the purpose of the Second Amendment was to help keep the slave population under control, rather than to give the population a right to self-defense. Additionally, he played the game of finding racial double standards in the treatment of whites and nonwhites with regard to guns and mass shootings. And, for his part, MSNBC Republican Steve Schmidt ridiculously claimed that "It is harder to buy cough medicine than it is to buy an AK-47 or 50...

    Michelle Obama ignored people like Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) when she said that Republican members of Congress are "all men, all white." And she greatly minimized them, and all the other minority and/or female members of the GOP caucus, when she said, "On the other side... some women, some people of color." But she didn't even stop there; the former first lady implied that this dynamic of right-wingers being only white men was a paradigm throughout the U.S. and throughout many industries.

    Tonight I made a rare Friday appearance with Tucker Carlson on Fox News. The subject was a Massachusetts school librarian's decision to reject a gift of children's books from Melania Trump because Dr Seuss is "racist propaganda":According to Steyn, the letter that Massachusetts librarian Phipps Soeiro wrote was "incredibly moronic" and "part of the dumbing down of American society." After disputing one of Serio's complaints, Steyn lamented that "we are making ourselves a society too stupid to survive."Steyn specifically took issue with Soeiro's complaint that the main character in "The Cat in the Hat" had a bowtie intended to evoke...

    President Trump’s race-baiting attack on African-American athletes is nothing new. During the civil rights movement, blacks in the South who dared to stand up for justice were often punished by being fired from their jobs. Trump is demanding that National Football League team owners act like the white segregationists of old. It was gratifying to see the overwhelming rejection of Trump’s hideous rabble-rousing by NFL players, owners and fans. But let’s be clear: There is no reason, at this point, to give Trump the benefit of any doubt. We should assume Trump’s words and actions reflect what he truly believes....
