Fear Leads to Hate

It turns out Bernie Sanders is and always has been the “pragmatic” choice to defeat Trump Drumpf. Like every other word out of Hillary Clinton’s mouth, such as her commitment to a final debate in California, claims to the contrary were lies, or at least dredged from a deep well of self-deception

Little GOP of Horrors

Saturday, August 29, 2015

In contrast to his reputation as a builder, devouring the entire slate of Republican candidates this election cycle and rendering the Republican brand as radioactive as Chernobyl would be Trump’s greatest, most lasting achievement, having a far longer-term, more meaningful, and positive impact on history and the world than any number of golf courses with ridiculously-oversized American flags or skyscrapers with his name plastered on them in giant letters.

Republicans (or people for whom the Republican party isn’t right wing enough) are usually the ones shouting loudest about “States’ Rights,” and are most likely to claim Lincoln as a rhetorical symbol while outright rejecting or fighting against everything he stood for.

Separate but Equal Justice Under Law

The entire justice system in the U.S., and not just the police, is still racially-biased against darker-skinned minorities; almost as if one of the things “Justice” measures, when determining the guilt or innocence of the accused, is how white that person is.

Some racist morons whose racism has been so obvious and indelible, that any denials of it are ludicrously absurd…

Torch of LIberty

I thought the “free at last” segment from Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech might be repurposed to refer to this decision as a backwards step for Civil Rights if I were to pair it with an image that was neither subtle, nor easily-misinterpreted…

Grand Old Party Games

As John McCain recently observed, the results of the last election were a savage indictment of Republican immigration policy, especially when it comes to Hispanics and Latinos, where the orthodox view seems to be “deport all of them, except for the ones that mow my lawn!”

Rational Actor

Aside from the lying, one of the major themes of the Republican National Convention was trying to humanize Mitt Romney to the American public, which worked out like an alchemist attempting to transmute lead into gold. There were several reasons for this, not all of them tied to Romney’s being a soulless, private-equity golem powered by tax fraud, diet Coke, and skinless turkey…
