The Newest In Hate Couture, A Face Mask With Gun Holster For the MAGAt...

If there’s a MAGAt on your Xian Xmas shopping list, here’s just the thing. This is for the man who’s decided that if you’ve got to be politically correct like those lib wimps and wear a *%(@# face mask, even though you know coronavirus is a hoax, you’ve got to be able to still make […]

Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year old fanatic who killed two people and maimed a third during the Kenosha protests, is now being represented by Sean Hannity’s personal lawyer, L. Lin Wood. (1) Thanks to ALL Freedom Loving Americans who responded to requests for contact information on Kyle Rittenhouse. We have connected with Kyle’s family & help is […]

Update: Kenosha Murderer Charged with Multiple Felonies

Last night I wrote a piece about Kyle Rittenhouse, the baby-faced 17-year old who murdered two people and maimed a third during the Kenosha protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake. As with every chaotic, violent, fast-moving story like this, the details sometime get reported wrong. So this is an update and a correction […]

Lindsey Graham Breaks With Trump On QAnon

Maybe Lindsey Graham is trying to inch his way back towards the sane side of the goal posts. That would make sense, because he must figure that when Trump goes down in flames, anything Graham can do to mitigate the fact that he followed Trump blindly for so long, is going to stand in his […]

The Kenosha Street Murders: Revising History Before Our Eyes

In the last four years, we’ve been “privileged” time and again to watch the psychotics on the right attempt to rewrite history before our eyes. It’s happening again, in real time, on cable news and social media. Lucky us, we get to be part of it… Protests in the Streets The streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin […]

I Blundered Into A Trump Rally and It Was North v. South, Literally, Right...

We live in strange and polarized times. I came home from an errand on another side of the San Fernando Valley today and when I pulled in front of the house I realized that I hadn’t deposited a couple of checks. So I said to myself, “Go do this.” So I headed the car up […]

‘Back the Blue’ Protesters Beat BLM Protesters In Colorado Ditch. Only Seeing Is Believing

The commentary that comes along with this Instagram post says it all far better than anything I could add. I find this incredible. The call to not escalate the hostilities with guns is a good one. But the fact that neighbor would slug neighbor in a ditch, in Ft. Collins, Colorado no less, because the […]

Sarah Palin Grifts Off RWNJ Websites, Including One That Implied Hillary Clinton Killed Jeffrey...

The fact that John McCain didn’t want Sarah Palin at his funeral spoke volumes. Palin’s newest post-politics gig appears to be the endorsement of noxious news sites, via her Facebook page. And it is evident that she’s making money doing this. “…since May 4, Palin’s Facebook page has linked to an obscure right-wing aggregation site […]

NYT’s Brooks Has a New Vision for the Post-Trump GOP: Same As It Ever...

Anyone who knows the right-wing pundits knows David Brooks is the King of Smarm. He sniffs and pontificates from his perch as the Principled Conservative for the New York Times‘s op-ed page, pretending to be one of the “good conservatives” who loftily disapproves (more or less) of racism, immigrant-bashing and the like. He doesn’t much […]

John Lewis Speaks From The Grave ‘Ordinary People With Extraordinary Vision Can Redeem the...

John Lewis left an essay to be published as an opinion piece on the day of his funeral. It is a stirring encapsulation of the forces that motivated the young boy to become the great man that he did, and a call to arms to this generation. May we rise to the challenge that Congressman Lewis now puts before us and carry on the work that he began. New York Times: While my time here has now come to an end, I want you to know that in the last days and hours of my life you inspired me. You filled me with hope about the next chapter of the great American story when you used your power to make a difference in our society. Millions of people motivated simply by human compassion laid down the burdens of division. Around the country and the world you set aside race, class, age, language and nationality to demand respect for human dignity. That is why I had to visit Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, though I was admitted to the hospital the following day. I just had to see and feel it for myself that, after many years of silent witness, the truth is still marching on. Emmett Till was my George Floyd. He was my Rayshard Brooks, Sandra Bland and Breonna Taylor. He was 14 when he was killed, and I was only 15 years old at the time. I will never ever forget the moment when it became so clear that he could easily have been me. In those days, fear constrained us like an imaginary prison, and troubling thoughts of potential brutality committed for no understandable reason were the bars. Though I was surrounded by two loving parents, plenty of brothers, sisters and cousins, their love could not protect me from the unholy oppression waiting just outside that family circle. Unchecked, unrestrained violence and government-sanctioned terror had the power to turn a simple stroll to the store for some Skittles or an innocent morning jog down a lonesome country road into a nightmare. If we are to survive as one unified nation, we must discover what so readily takes root in our hearts that could rob Mother Emanuel Church in South Carolina of her brightest and best, shoot unwitting concertgoers in Las Vegas and choke to death the hopes and dreams of a gifted violinist like Elijah McClain. Like so many young people today, I was searching for a way out, or some might say a way in, and then I heard the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on an old radio. He was talking about the philosophy and discipline of nonviolence. He said we are all complicit when we tolerate injustice. He said it is not enough to say it will get better by and by. He said each of us has a moral obligation to stand up, speak up and speak out. When you see something that is not right, you must say something. You must do something. Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part to help build what we called the Beloved Community, a nation and world society at peace with itself. Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting […]
