NY Times Obliterates Trump for “Racist Lies”

Wow! What a takedown!

Mr. Trump’s Applause Lies

America has just lived through another presidential campaign week dominated by Donald Trump’s racist lies. Here’s a partial list of false statements: The United States is about to take in 250,000 Syrian refugees; African-Americans are responsible for most white homicides; and during the 9/11 attacks, “thousands and thousands” of people in an unnamed “Arab” community in New Jersey “were cheering as that building was coming down.”

In the Republican field, Mr. Trump has distinguished himself as fastest to dive to the bottom. If it’s a lie too vile to utter aloud, count on Mr. Trump to say it, often. It wins him airtime, and retweets through the roof.

This phenomenon is in fact nothing new. Politicians targeting minorities, foreigners or women have always existed in the culture. And every generation or so, at least one demagogue surfaces to fan those flames.

Here’s Donald Trump on Sunday: When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if it’s a Trojan horse. And I definitely want a database and other checks and balances. We want to go with watch lists. We want to go with databases. And we have no choice. We have no idea who’s being sent in here. This could be the — it’s probably not, but it could be the great Trojan horse of all time, where they come in.”

Here’s Joseph McCarthy in 1950: “Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity. The modern champions of communism have selected this as the time, and ladies and gentlemen, the chips are down — they are truly down.”

Here’s Donald Trump last Tuesday: “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before. And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy. And so we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

Dixiecrat George Wallace

Here’s George Wallace in 1963: “We must redefine our heritage, re-school our thoughts in the lessons our forefathers knew so well, in order to function and to grow and to prosper. We can no longer hide our head in the sand and tell ourselves that the ideology of our free fathers is not being attacked and is not being threatened by another idea … for it is.”

Mr. Trump relies on social media to spread his views. This is convenient because there’s no need to respond to questions about his fabrications. That makes it imperative that other forms of media challenge him.

Instead, as Mr. Trump stays at the top of the Republican field, it’s become a full-time job just running down falsehoods like the phony crime statistics he tweeted, which came from a white supremacist group.

Yet Mr. Trump is regularly rewarded with free TV time, where he talks right over anyone challenging him, and doubles down when called out on his lies.

This isn’t about shutting off Mr. Trump’s bullhorn. His right to spew nonsense is protected by the Constitution, but the public doesn’t need to swallow it. History teaches that failing to hold a demagogue to account is a dangerous act. It’s no easy task for journalists to interrupt Mr. Trump with the facts, but it’s an important one.

Racism Will Make You Stupid – Trump Financier and Black Churches

One of the most welcoming places on earth to anybody but perhaps a black man at some of the personality driven joint…is the Black Church. This Trump-Clown denies that with evidence staring him in the face from the very recent mass murders at a black Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Nobody kicked Dylann Roof out of that church, denied him fellowship, or refused to pray, which sadly was the reason he was able to commit is horrific and despicable crime. Indeed, one of the very few places where at least social conservatives find common ground with black folks is in Church, whether in opposing LGBT marriage, or abortion…

Apparently being a bigot isn’t an impediment to getting rich in America – at least if you are white. However, racism IS stupidity – so intelligence isn’t the sole key to getting rich either..This offensive, racist POS should learn something…Like Civil Rights Leaders in the 60’s weren’t outsider troublemakers.

Trump supporter tells CNN: ‘I’d get beat up’ at a black church so black activists deserve it at Trump events


Robert Kiger, the founder of a super PAC supporting Donald Trump for president, said on Monday that he wasn’t surprised that a black man was beaten at a Trump rally because he would expect black people to do the same thing to him if he visited an African-American church.

At a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, Trump supporters were caught on video beating a black man because he interrupted the event by shouting “black lives matter.”

Kiger told CNN’s Carol Costello on Monday that Alabama was the wrong place to protest systemic racism.

“From my perspective, I’m sick and tire of the Black Lives Matter thing,” Kiger complained. “I think it’s a farce. I think they’re there to just disrupt. Look, if they really care about black lives, they need to pick up a banner and go to the South Side of Chicago, where black lives are being slaughtered on a daily basis. If they really care about the African-American community, get up there and do something about it.”

“So they don’t have the right to protest at a Trump rally?” Costello wondered.

“No, they don’t, really,” Kiger relied. “Look, I wouldn’t go into a black church and start screaming white lives matter.”

“Would you be afraid that they would beat you up?” Costello pressed.

“Yeah! I know I’d get beat up,” Kiger insisted, adding that he would be “at least roughed up” by black church members.

Costello attempted to make a point about the way that members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church responded with kindness after they were targeted in a mass shooting.

But the CNN host quickly decided her words were lost on Kiger: “Never mind, I won’t go there.”

“These guys don’t really have a cause,” Kiger said of Black Lives Matter. “I don’t think they really care. If they did, they would go to Baltimore or they’d go to Chicago.”

Trump Uses White Supremacist Data in New Ad

Going back to white supremacist Jared Taylor in the early 90’s, white supremacist groups and the KKK have used manipulated, and/or outright made up data to created racist data supporting a “War on white people”.

Now Trump presents exactly that same data. You can find variations of the same fake dat (and bad math) at a number of conservative sites, including here, regurgitated here at the racist Federalist Lawyers.

Here is a good deconstruction of what racists like Trump, and the white supremacists he quotes and panders to are trying to do from another Blogger. And this Tim Wise piece that I use a  from a few years ago destroying the racist conservative meme (Read it all at this link):

* Only about 1 percent of African Americans — and no more than 2 percent of black males — will commit a violent crime in a given year;

* Even though there are more black-on-white interracial crimes than white-on-black interracial crimes, this fact is not evidence of anti-white racial targeting by black offenders. Rather, it is completely explained by two factors having nothing to do with anti-white bias: namely, the general differences in rates of criminal offending, and the rates at which whites and blacks encounter one another (and thus, have the opportunity to victimize one another). Once these two factors are “controlled for” in social science terms, the actual rates of black-on-white crime are lower than random chance would predict;

* No more than 0.7 percent (seven-tenths of one percent) of African Americans will commit a violent crime against a white person in a given year, and fewer than 0.3 (three-tenths of one percent) of whites will be victimized by a black person in a given year;

* Whites are 6 times as likely to be murdered by another white person as by a black person; and overall, the percentage of white Americans who will be murdered by a black offender in a given year is only 2/10,000ths of 1 percent (0.0002). This means that only 1 in every 500,000 white people will be murdered by a black person in a given year. Although the numbers of black-on-white homicides are higher than the reverse (447 to 218 in 2010), the 218 black victims of white murderers is actually a higher percentage of the black population interracially killed than the 447 white victims of black murderers as a percentage of the white population. In fact, any given black person is 2.75 times as likely to be murdered by a white person as any given white person is to be murdered by an African American.

Now..On to Trumps racism –


Donald Trump Is Using False Statistics to Make a Racist Point

At this point, it should come as no surprise when Donald Trump manipulates the truth to his political advantage. However, presenting false racially-biased statistics a day after an African-American protester was thrown out of one of his events, doesn’t send the best message.

Earlier on Sunday afternoon, Trump did his weird version of a manual retweet of an image depicting a man (in this context, assumed to be black), with a bandana over his face pointing a gun sideways towards a list of wholly fabricated statistics. 

The image alleges that 97 percent of African-Americans were killed by African Americans, while only 1 percent of murdered African-Americans were killed by police. These two statistics are demarcated from the rest in blue and red ink respectively. It also claims 81 percent of whites who are killed are killed by blacks, which is pure race-baiting at its most ignorant. The numbers in this erroneous image are attributed to the “Crime Statistics Bureau – San Francisco,” and reflect 2015 data.

For one thing, a “Crime Statistics Bureau” does not exist. The FBI is responsible for this data and they have yet to release a report on 2015, because, well 2015 is not over yet. 

Secondly, whoever made that image did so with the intent of lying about the percentage of white Americans killed by black Americans. In 2014, that number was 14 percent, not 81 percent. 

Additionally, in the graphic, only 16 percent of whites are killed by other whites. In the same FBI report, it clearly states that 82.3 percent of whites are in fact killed by other whites, which is very similar to the number of blacks killed by blacks (89.9 percent).

Finally, when the Daily Beast reverse google image searched the picture, the only yielded results were attributed to YouTube videos in Arabic, which featured a duplicated image of the man in the picture Trump shared. 

This explicit truth-bending is only compounded by the fact that a Black Lives Matter protester named Mercutio Southall Jr. was kicked out of a Trump rally in Alabama on Saturday. 

“Get him the hell out of here, will you please?” Trump requested at the rally. “Get him out of here. Throw him out!”

Southall at one point was on the ground being kicked and punched by several white men in attendance. When asked about the violent incident this morning onFox & Friends, Trump said “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing. I have a lot of fans, and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy who was a trouble-maker who was looking to make trouble.”

The Daily Beast has reached out for comment to Southall Jr., who said he was repeatedly called a “nigger” and a “monkey” at the event. Meanwhile in a Facebook message, his father asked me for some time before speaking about yesterday’s events. 

The Trump campaign has not responded to a question from the Daily Beast about whether Trump himself retweeted the image and where he got the information within it.

Latin Grammys – “Don’t Vote for Racists”

Lat two elections, about 73% of Hispanics voted for Obama…With the latest round of “We hate brown folks” by the right…That ought to be up to 95% next election.

2015 Latin Grammys Get Political As Artists Urge Latinos: ‘Don’t Vote For Racists’

Natalia Lafourcade was the big winner Thursday at the Latin Grammy Awards, making good on four of her five nominations for her album “Hasta la Raiz.” But the Mexican singer-songwriter lost out on the top prize, album of the year, which went to Dominican bachata artist Juan Luis Guerra for “Todo Tiene su Hora.”

Lafourcade still claimed two of the night’s most prestigious awards, song of the year and record of the year for the title track of “Hasta la Raiz.”

“My friend, how amazing that we made this disc together,” Lafourcade said to her friend and collaborator Leonel Garcia, with whom she shared three nominations as cowriters of the album’s title track.

The biggest night in Latin music was presented in Spanish and English and featured a mix of rhythms, from alternative to mariachi.

Colorful performance mash-ups underscored the mix: Jamaican artist Omi shared the stage with reggaeton singer Nicky Jam, and Will Smith returned to his rap roots, performing “Fiesta” with Colombian trop-rockers Bomba Estereo.

The Latin Grammy Awards were broadcast live on Univision from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. For the first time, the telecast also reached viewers in China. Actresses Jacqueline Bracamontes and Roselyn Sanchez hosted the three-hour ceremony…

Rita Moreno delighted the audience when she busted out some reggaeton dance moves, belying her 84 years.

Things also got political, thanks to rockers Mana and Los Tigres del Norte, who urged fellow Hispanics to get out the vote.

“This is how we can use our power,” said Mana vocalist Fher as the group accepted their award for pop/rock album. “We have to exercise our right to vote, and vote for those who will give more quality (of life) to Latinos, to the candidates. Use your strength, Latinos!”

Los Tigres del Norte went further, hoisting a banner at the end of their performance that read, “Latinos united, don’t vote for the racists.”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump drew ire from Hispanics and others when he said Mexican immigrants are rapists who bring drugs into the United States. Univision was among the companies that cut ties with Trump after the remarks.

Clown Bus Update – Uncle Ben Slip Slidin’ Away

Carson Crashing

Ben Carson is cratering: New polls show controversies taking a toll on the wingnut favorite

Ben Carson has seen his fair share of fumbles, and after weeks of increased scrutiny and a turn in the spotlight under pressure, it is safe to say that the good doctor is no Teflon Don.

A series of new polls out this week suggests that Carson’s standing as a rising challenger to Donald Trump’s long lasting dominance may be short-lived.

Carson Tops Trump in National Poll,” the headlines read in late October, and againthe next week. But then came West Point — or was it the pyramid grain silos — either way, Carson quickly found himself in all of the headlines for all of the wrong reasons shortly after catapulting to the top of the polls. And with the increased popularity in the polls came increased scrutiny in the media.

Carson did his best to deflect the drip, drop of revelations that his personal narrative of a young thug redeemed by Jesus was full of discrepancies, lashing out at the media and hunkering down. But then came the third GOP presidential debate and Carson just faded away on stage, only to be brought back to memory by Jay Pharoah’s brutal comedic takedown of his “Gifted Hands” memoir on SNL.

In between, there were a number of terror attacks by ISIL, a bizarre claim by Carson that China is operating in Syria and a promise to provide his superior intelligence to prove it, and a disastrous Fox News interview where the political neophyte was unable to name even one specific allied partner in his plan to combat the terror group despite being asked three times by Chris Wallace.

Then this week, two close Carson advisers even admitted to the New York Times that the candidate was in over his head on foreign policy and now, it appears as though some GOP voters may have caught on.

There is the new national poll from Bloomberg that places Trump only four points ahead of Carson, but that is about as much good news as the good doctor can squeeze out of a slate of new polls showing his September surge slumping in the wake of damming allegations that he embellished his past personal narrative. A breakdown of the Bloomberg poll lays out Carson’s troubles vis-a-vis Trump front-and-center. In a head-to-head match-up, voters chose Trump over Carson on the economy, illegal immigration, fighting “Islamic terrorism,” handling Russian President Vladimir Putin, knowing the most about how to get things done and finally, having the most appropriate life experience to be president. Poor Ben.

For his part, Carson manages to grab the coveted candidate who “cares the most about people like you” top spot. And unsurprisingly, Republican voters still find Carson as the most honest and trustworthy of the entire bunch. Go figure.

But unfortunately for Ben, the poll numbers only get worse after Bloomberg. Two new polls conducted entirely post-Paris attack show Carson losing ground in the first primary state in the nation.

A Fox News poll out Wednesday evening found the retired neurosurgeon only grabbing 9 percent support from Republicans in New Hampshire, leaving him in fourth place in the crucial Granite State. In contrast, Trump bumps up to 27 percent in the Fox News poll. Another New Hampshire poll from WBUR found Carson losing ground in the state, dropping from 15 percent to 11 percent to tie for second with Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who saw his standing in the poll go up two points.

Going Nazi – The Right’s Howl over Syrian Refugees…

Last I checked there were only about 1,600 SYrian refugees that had made their way to America.

  1. That is less than 5% of the 50,000 or so Sarah Palin “Sovereignty” types who want to destroy the Federal Government of the type who brought us the mass shooting of Sikh people in Temple.
  2. Less than 5% of the 70,000  estimated number of KKK, Christian Identity, or Aryan types who want to murder all non whites and take over the government who brought us the mass murder in Charleston and countless other savage attacks..
  3. About the same number as there are extremist “Patriot” and Militia GROUPS in this country, who brought us the Bombing of the Murrah Building.

And we are supposed to stupid enough to believe the immigration of 10,000 more Syrian refugees is going to rock America’s Foundations?

Cases in point.

Rhode Island Republican wants Syrian refugees held in ‘centralized’ camps: ‘Our country is under attack’

A Rhode Island Republican lawmaker has gone one step closer to the Third Reich’s “Final Solution” by saying Syrian refugees should be rounded up and placed in a concentration camp.

State Sen. Elaine Morgan (R) made the comment in a Tuesday email to a member of the public, which she accidentally CC’ed to other lawmakers, WPRI reports.

“If we need to take these people in we should set up [a] refugee camp to keep them segregated from our populous.” Morgan wrote in the email. “I think the protection of our US citizens and the United States of America should be the most important issue here.”

Morgan also launched into a bigoted attack on Muslim people by lumping the entire religious community together with Islamic State terrorists.

“The Muslim religion and philosophy is to murder, rape, and decapitate anyone who is a non Muslim,” she wrote, also stating, “I do not want our governor bringing in any Syrian refugees. I think our country is under attack. I think this is a major plan by these countries to spread out their people to attack all non Muslim persons.”

Morgan said she meant to edit the message but failed to do so properly because she didn’t know how to edit using her smartphone. On Wednesday though, she expressed similar sentiments.

“I can see taking [Syrian refugees] in, but keeping them all centralized – it sounds a little barbaric, but we need to centralize them and keep them in one central area,” she said.

Morgan then went on to suggest refugees should fight in the civil war instead of fleeing, though most of them are women and children.

Ooooh! Here’s an idea! Little yellow stars! And really big ovens…

Trump crosses the Nazi line: Maybe Muslims should wear special ID badges

Donald Trump stuck a toe across the Nazi line Thursday morning in the ongoing hysteria over Muslim immigrants.

The Republican presidential frontrunner refused to rule out requiring Muslims to carry special identification showing their faith — which the Third Reich required Jews to do with a yellow badge that resembled the Star of David.

“We’re going to have to do things that we never did before,” Trump told Yahoo News. “Some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule.”

The Nazi policy was based on an anti-Semitic practice in Medieval and Renaissance European nations, and historians say it played a large role in paving the way for acceptance of the Holocaust.

“The German government’s policy of forcing Jews to wear identifying badges was but one of many psychological tactics aimed at isolating and dehumanizing the Jews of Europe, directly marking them as being different (i.e., inferior) to everyone else,”according to the Holocaust Center. “It allowed for the easier facilitation of their separation from society and subsequent ghettoization, which ultimately led to the deportation and murder of 6 million Jews.”

Trump also refused to rule out warrantless searches as part of his call for increased surveillance of Muslim houses of worship, and he has also suggested that U.S. mosques could be shut down if they are deemed to be a security threat — althoughhe’s not certain that’s legal.

“Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,” Trump said. “We’re going to have to do things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

The real estate tycoon and reality TV star said he was open to registering U.S. Muslims in a special database, in addition to requiring them to publicly identify themselves by their faith.

“We’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump said. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

Yeah…There are some folks that America would be better off deporting…except they aren’t refugees or immigrants. Raise the effing National IQ level…

About that Dumb Assed Border Wall

Millions of illegal immigrants flooded over the border to the US because of jobs. George W Bush and the Republican Reprobates took care of that problem. Since 2007, those folks – faced with unemployment – have been going home.

Unless you expect Syrian Refugees to cut grass and hang drywall for a living…Rethugs better be building that wall to keep them here.

More Mexicans Leaving Than Coming to the U.S.

More Mexican immigrants have returned to Mexico from the U.S. than have migrated here since the end of the Great Recession, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of newly available government data from both countries. The same data sources also show the overall flow of Mexican immigrants between the two countries is at its smallest since the 1990s, mostly due to a drop in the number of Mexican immigrants coming to the U.S.

From 2009 to 2014, 1 million Mexicans and their families (including U.S.-born children) left the U.S. for Mexico,according to data from the 2014 Mexican National Survey of Demographic Dynamics (ENADID). U.S. census data for the same period show an estimated 870,000 Mexican nationals left Mexico to come to the U.S., a smaller number than the flow of families from the U.S. to Mexico.

Measuring migration flows between Mexico and the U.S. is challenging because there are no official counts of how many Mexican immigrants enter and leave the U.S. each year. This report uses the best available government data from both countries to estimate the size of these flows. The Mexican data sources — a national household survey, and two national censuses — asked comparable questions about household members’ migration to and from Mexico over the five years previous to each survey or census date. In addition, estimates of Mexican migration to the U.S. come from U.S. Census Bureau data, adjusted for undercount, on the number of Mexican immigrants who live in the U.S….Read the Rest Here
