    I, for the life of me, can't understand how little self-respect you have to have to fecklessly whimper in the face of racism in the name of your freaking political party. For shame.

    Oh hey, more Republican moral courage.

    .@ChrisCuomo: "What would you do if the President said, 'I am a racist'?"
    Kris Kobach: "Then I would not defend him."
    Cuomo: "Would you still support him as President?
    Kobach: "Um. I don't know."
    Cuomo: "You have to think about whether or not you would support a racist?"

    "Your network hauled Richard Spencer out off of the bench, and put him on the air..." should be the reply to any of Acosta's shtick from here on out. Just, what kind on backwards nonsense went into making this call?

    Even worse is reading that post racist rant Trump is actually polling 5% higher with Republicans.

    The prosperity and status that white Americans currently enjoy is entirely due to hundreds of years of racist policies meant to enrich them at the expense of everyone else. While it would be nice if they were willing to give all that up in the name of principle, it's not really realistic to expect them to.

    No, those Republicans didn't whimper in the name of their party, they whimpered because of Trump. That's a huge difference as they're clearly terrified of the Orange Menace.

    Donald Trump’s ‘Go Back’ Slur All Too Familiar To Minority Members Of Congress

    White lawmakers, however, acknowledged that people generally assumed they were American. Weak sauce from Republicans. As usual.

    **********

    Mitch McConnell Says ‘All Of Us’ Should Cool It In Wake Of Trump’s Racist Tweets

    The Senate majority leader stopped short of calling the president’s attacks on Democratic congresswomen racist. Yo, Turtle Boy, try telling that to your boss, otherwise, your words are fucking meaningless.

    **********

    Federal Law Says ‘Go Back To Where You Came From’ Counts As Discrimination

    The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cites the phrase President Trump recently used against four congresswomen as workplace harassment. Hmm! I wonder if Caramel Caligula might consider having that law overturned?

    **********

    Trump Renews Attacks Against Democratic Congresswomen: ‘Pro-Terrorist,’ ‘Vile’

    The president stoked his racist comments telling four progressive lawmakers of color to “go back” to other countries. One thing I don't believe is being discussed enough is Trump saying that anyone who is critical about things that are bad or wrong in the country is "un-American", and that's criminal.

    **********

    Anthony Scaramucci Calls Trump Attack On 4 Democrats ‘Racist And Unacceptable’

    The former White House communications director joined those condemning the man he briefly served. When Scary Tony dumps on Trump, and he was as loyal to Dolt45 as anyone, you KNOW it's bad!

    Fun Fact: Ilhan Omar has been a U.S. citizen since 2000.

    Melania Trump has only been a citizen since 2006, and she was working illegally in the United States for several years as a model before she attained a proper work visa.

    Don't hear many people telling her to go back where she came from, y'know?

    If this actually winds up being about the guy being behind on the rent, it is a particularly lousy day in America...

    Well, that's because people never complain about WHITE illegals. They pretty much get a free pass.

    True story... During one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's immigration crackdowns in Arizona back after SB1070 dropped back in the day, I remember going to a Arizona Coyotes/Vancouver Canucks game, and 30% of parking lot had Manitoba and British Colombia license plates. There are enough Canadians that come south for the winter for extended stays to enjoy a balmy 70 degrees in the Phoenix area, and still root for the team when it comes down here. Maricopa Country sheriffs just were doing traffic duty. Didn't check citizenship on a single person leaving, in spite of their plates being quite the hint that maybe they came from somewhere else. Not a single one of the cops wanted to use the wiggle room of SB1070's "reasonable suspicion" to check on it.

    Because these Republicans that are on this don't care about the citizenship... they just fear potentially being a white minority.

    It's more that they're trying to ignore the obvious because he's a useful idiot. Thing is he is useful...he's getting them their corporate tax cuts, he's getting them their judges, he's turning a blind eye to gerrymandering, he's rolling back environmental regulations...if they have to put up with his vulgarity and a little racism, eh! The fact is a lot of people are more willing to deal with an assh*le who gives them what they want than a nice guy who does little.

    On this date in 2014, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” published a profile on Sharron Angle, who really, really hates immigrants, running some of the most blatantly racist ad spots about them back in the 2010 election, the last time she ran for the seat, against Sen. Harry Reid. When confronted about her racism by Hispanic constituents, she used the defense that “they don’t look Hispanic to me, they look Asian”, which kind of made things worse. Angle also once tried arguing against rape exceptions in anti-abortion legislation because rape victims “need to make lemons from lemonade”, argues against water fluoridation because she believes the government deliberately poisons the water supply with lead, mercury, and arsenic (Flint, Michigan aside, “deliberately” a government deliberately doing it is insane), wanted to privatize Social Security, and falsely claimed unemployment benefits pay more than entry level jobs. She is also a climate change denier, shared her belief that the 9/11 hijackers came into the country through Canada (again, wrong), wants to eliminate the Department of Energy, Department of Education, and the Environmental Protection Agency, said there should be no separation of church and state in the Constitution, while claiming there are towns in America that have been taken over by Sharia Law. Angle was in the GOP Primary for Harry Reid’s seat again, six years later, but she had already established herself to be the kind of kook that cost the Republicans a shot at winning a Senate majority back in the first Tea Party wave and lost to U.S. House Rep Joe Heck. She seems to be the only one unaware that her career is over.

    In both 2015, and in 2016, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” published profiles of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, whose past we delved deep into, all the way back to 1973 when he worked for a Baptist newspaper called “The Rapture Express” where he would write about the dread menaces of things like women not wearing bras, or wearing short skirts, or gays, or teenagers dancing! OH MY! Back in 1992, while campaigning for a U.S. Senate seat, Huckabee suggested the novel idea of quarantining AIDS patients. In both 2007 and in 2011, he used his newfound media profile on Fox News and conservative talk radio to lament the pregnancies of Jamie Lynn Spears, and Natalie Portman, for happening out of wedlock, which is a slightly different reaction than the defense he put up for the media paying any attention to Bristol Palin being pregnant in 2008. Huckabee has also defended the Confederate flag, and then compares abortion to slavery (he surprise, he supports fetal “Personhood”). Huckabee also praises “historian” and exposed fraud David Barton, and his lies that the United States is a Christian nation that was never intended to have a separation of church and state, saying “every American should be forced at gunpoint to learn from him”. (Because that in no way would be a military indoctrination into a theocracy.) Huckabee not only defended the “legitimiate rape” comments by Congressman Todd Akin, but claimed people were only attacking him “because he was a Christian”. He can simultaneously complain about Beyonce being exploited by “Jay-Z acting like her pimp”, or Miley Cyrus being too scandalous, while he instead goes about performing on bass guitar for Ted Nugent in a rendition of “Cat Scratch Fever”, a song about getting an STD (Nugent, incidentally, also admits to having sex with underage girls numerous times in his heyday). After tensions rose in the wake of the shocking police killings of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castle, Mike Huckabee took it upon himself to respond to the outcry from the Black Lives Matter movement by calling for... the "Male Lives Matter" movement, because he just feels so attacked by all the lady folk. Huckabee, inspired by his Christian faith, advised people to not take in Syrian refugees "just because they're not living a very fancy life", but lied his ass off about a German family who were being deported they were Christians who home-schooled their children… when they weren’t even being deported, at all. Huckabee defended the idea of monitoring mosques, and chastising liberals for suggesting such an act would be a violation of the freedom of religion Muslims, trying to prove liberals were hypocrites about the premise because "they are waging war on Christmas". Huckabee responded to the shooter at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs by condemning him… and then adding a BUT to the condemnation, and pointing out that in his eyes, the people he killed working at the clinc were murderers, too. Huckabee has also called for the impeachment of President Obama for “acting like God”, freaked out over Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on ESPN during the NFL draft, and threatened to leave the Republican Party should they ever stop fighting to overturn the ruling on same sex marriage. Incidentally, Huckabee has rabidly attacked the Supreme Court since their ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, saying the United States was now “worse than Sodam and Gomorrah”, and that HIS first amendment freedom of religion is being violated because gay people can get married. He’s enough of a hypocrite that he once called a proposed boycott of Chik-Fil-A by people who were upset that they support anti-LGBT causes “economic terrorism”, and then only a few years later, called for a boycott of Doritos for producing a rainbow-dyed product to promote LGBT awareness. Huckabee also creeped everyone right out when he gave his opinion on transgendered bathroom use and said he would have done it as a teen to “get into the ladies’ locker room”. Huckabee is enough of a “victimized Christian” that he complains that he claims “the left won’t rest until there are no more churches” and after news broke that his longtime favorite family, the Duggars were revealed to have turned a blind eye to the fact that their son, Josh Duggar was molesting some of his sisters and their friends, Huckabee defended them. Mike Huckabee continues to occasionally drag his chicken-fried dumb ass onto Fox News to vomit out all sorts of folksy metaphors for why Republicans aren’t that racist or sexist (even when they clearly are doing so), while his creepy daughter has started lying her ass off as the Deputy Press Secretary for the Trump Administration, and his posts on Twitter grow all the more bigoted with each passing year, like his attempts to link the MS-13 gang to Nancy Pelosi.
