    This week we found out that 40% of Americans are irredeemably racist isnt that the takeaway from Hillarys ad and her speech about how anyone voting for Trump is one step away from pulling a hood out of the hamper and firing up a cross? Then we found out that a bunch of bitter virgins sitting at keyboards who occasionally take a break from viewing My Little Pony-themed porn to tweet about their Nordic heritage are the major driver behind Donald Trump. Has anyone actually met a member of the Alt Right in real life? I havent, but then...

    Anti-establishment conservatives of all stripes from the nationalist alt-right at Breitbart to the liberty-minded anti-globalist Infowars media empire were apparently delighted with Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her latest anti-Donald Trump screed. With her bizarre speech Thursday attempting to demonize huge swaths of the American public as racists and paranoid conspiracy theorists, Clinton sounded almost unhinged. But it may all backfire.Ironically, the scandal-plagued Democrat candidate denounced what she called the paranoid fringe in American politics even while sounding unusually paranoid by outlining an imagined global right-wing conspiracy of immense proportions apparently led by former KGB boss...

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told Bloomberg TV she believes it was a calculated move on his part to get booed at the NAACP convention.

She ran an ad that basically said the KKK will be in charge if Trump wins. Politics doesnt get any lower than this. There are a few problems with the ad other than how childish it is. Not only has the KKK endorsed Hillary, but Hillary used to be good friends with someone who was actually a member. Flashback time.

Ivanka Trump riffed on issues like equal pay and affordable childcare, which are typically Democratic issues.

    So while Trump appeared flawless on the Cleveland stage Monday night, whether she intended it or not, her all-white ensemble displayed the kind of foreignness that is accepted by her husbands political party. To many, that outfit could be another reminder that in the G.O.P. white is always right. Four years ago, Republicans fretted about trying to diversify their base, in the wake of Barack Obamas clear voter mandate. This time around, with Trump at the top of the ticket, its obvious that ship has sailed. On Monday night, Melania Trump was a not-so-subliminal billboard for whats looking like the...

    Mondays Supreme Court ruling tossing Texas abortion restrictions puts a massive spotlight on the new debate pressing evangelicals: Which is a worse sin, racism or abortion? For decades, abortion has been the mother of all deciding issues for evangelicals, who make up about a quarter of the U.S. population and are strongly opposed. But in the 2016 race, with Donald Trumps unusually incendiary comments about race, culture and religion, this second issue is becoming increasingly sacred. This question of how to deal with Hillary Clintons robust support for abortion rights along with Trumps challenging of the place of minorities is...

The 2012 Republican nominee, who has openly opposed Trump's candidacy, went further than he has before in outlining to CNN's Wolf Blitzer how the country's character would suffer in a Trump White House. Trump's rhetoric has caused even some other Republicans to label him a racist, and Romney said he would not be able to paper over his incendiary remarks.

In an interview with The New York Times, Carter, the 39th president, also said Trump violated "basic human rights" by labeling Mexican and Muslim immigrants as criminals and terrorists. "When you single out any particular group of people for secondary citizenship status, that's a violation of basic human rights," Carter said.

Trump's resounding victory isn't simply a boon to his prospects for winning the Republican presidential nomination, an outcome once thought impossible that is looking increasingly more plausible. It is also an embarrassing repudiation of conservative orthodoxy that has dominated Republican politics for decades. It suggests that the party's intellectual leaders, who organized the base around the National Review/Weekly Standard consensus -- small government, free trade, pro-Israel, deregulation, low taxes, social conservatism and an aggressive foreign policy -- have been generals of a phantom army.

    “White people, come get your boy.” Depending on how you read that line from comedian W. Kamau Bell about Donald Trump, you might take it as a joke. Or you might take offense. But Bell meant it as a call to action – because Trump is not a Republican problem. He’s a white-people problem. For the uninitiated, here’s a primer on “getting your boy.” First, you need to tell said “boy” that he is making you look bad in front of polite company. This is a familiar practice to people of color: Whenever a black or brown person does something...

    Donald Trump's highly publicized meeting with a group of black pastors was met immediately with reactions ranging from skepticism to condemnation. Critics were immediately justified when numerous individuals on Trump's "endorsement" list spoke out to clarify that they had only agreed to meet with the real estate mogul turned presidential candidate, rather than agreeing to endorse him. Those who did lend their names to the Trump candidacy were predictably branded sellouts. But what was missed in all the name calling and outrage was the overall necessity of Trump's move, even if it was poorly executed. Trump recognizes what Romney did...

    Here we go again: another liberal narrative burned to a crisp. Over a two-week period in October, an arsonist targeted seven churches in the St. Louis area -- including several in Black Lives Matter protest hotspot Ferguson, Missouri. The Atlantic magazine, invoking the "long history of terrorism against black churches in America," lamented that the crime spree had been "slow to get the same attention" in the local and national media as another string of church arsons that occurred earlier this summer. Reminder: Several of those hyped hate crimes against "black churches" had been committed by black suspects; a significant...
  • CNN Report Shows White Hands for Oregon Shooter's Mom

    CNN has denied claims by conservative websites that a photo of Chris Harper-Mercer, the man who shot and killed nine people at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week, was altered to make him appear white. But a report on his mother, who is black, used footage of white hands to illustrate her making web postings on Tuesday. A CNN report aired Tuesday on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" noted there are "new questions whether the mother of the Oregon shooter shares at least some of the responsibility for the tragedy." CNN mentioned that the shooter had Asperger,...

    ...Nobody can doubt that virtually all of the president's political enemies would vehemently defend themselves against a charge of racism. Virtually all of them observe the forms and taboos of political correctness. If any very visible one of their own should insult the president by a recognized racial slur, they would all join in the predictable outrage. But the paramount fact of this moment in the history of racism is that you don't have to denominate the president by a recognized racial slur when his very name can be used as a synonym. This subtilized racism is not only a...

    President Obama this week blasted critics of the Iran deal for supposedly suggesting that the other person has bad motives. He then proceeded to suggest that his opponents have bad motives. [] Remember how this all started? Early this year, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dared to accept an invitation to address a joint session of Congress. The Obama White House tried to cow Netanyahu into canceling the speech by spreading the idea that Netanyahu had insulted President Obama by accepting the invitation. The president even stooped so low as to use the Congressional Black Caucus to make the leap...

    Another black man is the victim of another racist beating for no reason whatsoever. Or so the media would have us believe. This time in Oakland. And we know that because of what the CBS affiliate called an unprovoked violent beatdown was witnessed by one of the worlds top authorities on black victimization, Dr. Zoe Marks. And she is spreading this story around the globe. The violent encounter happened last Thursday. CBS news in San Francisco started the tsunami of coverage by calling for the arrest of the security guard who administered the beating on a black man who...

    This is a meltdown that took place on the radio yesterday. To set this up. Kim Wade is a conservative black talk show host in the Jackson area. David L. Archie is black and a "community activist". He ran for Hinds County Supervisor (Supervisors are like city council but for a county) and lost. He was in the Bennie Thompson black power crowd and loves to use the phrase "Uncle Tom". The incumbent he faced is black minister and a former fire chief.They ran all kinds of dirty ads on him. He was backed by whites and blacks and won...
