Nooooo… Never happens.
Nooooo… Never happens.
Have had conservatives try this line on me before. It is one of those things which results in some conversation ending things being said by myself. If you are a conservative, black or white…Don’t try and quote Martin Luther King.
It is like hanging a big “I am a racist” sign around your neck.
Here, on CNN, another Chumph minion gets their ass kicked.
Kayleigh McEnany tried to defend Donald Trump during a CNN panel on Thursday by quoting Martin Luther King Jr. It did not go well.
“He is trying hard to be inclusive,” she said of Trump before calling Hillary Clinton’s speech linking Trump to white nationalists “divisive.”
“It does nothing to bring us together,” she continued. “Like Martin Luther King said, we have to learn to live together as brothers, or we will perish together as fools. Hillary Clinton’s speech did nothing to help us live together as one united country.”
McEnany’s invocation of the slain civil rights leader prompted an audible scoff from Democratic strategist Symone Sanders, as well as a rebuke from Guy Cecil, who leads a pro-Clinton super PAC.
“I always enjoy when a Trump supporter wants to ignore his record and then quote Martin Luther King,” he said. “Martin Luther King would not have kicked African-Americans off of a casino floor because a gambler wanted him to.”
“Martin Luther King would never have put a ‘C’ on the top of rental applications and prevented African-Americans from renting from him,” Cecil continued.
“That was never proven,” McEnany replied.
“Martin Luther King would not have sat on the stage and ridiculed and demeaned Muslims,” said Cecil. “He would not have insulted a Hispanic judge who was born in America who just happened to be of Mexican heritage. The idea that Donald Trump should get pats on the back because he sat on a table with six African-Americans –”
“This is so unproductive,” McEnany complained. “This is what’s wrong with this election.”
However, Cecil continued making his point, referencing a recent poll from Quinnipiac University.
“Sixty percent of Americans believe that Donald Trump traffics in bigotry, and a majority of independent voters said the same.”
Another day, another whacked-out Chumphazoid attacking innocent people. The Chumph has certainly fired up the subhumans.
“He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest,” police said
Unfortunately for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, two different violent criminals on opposite ends of the country reportedly held superficial links to the troubled candidate’s campaign while carrying out their attacks this week.
In Washington, a 32-year-old white man, described by local authorities as a likely white supremacist, attacked an interracial couple he witnessed engaged in a kiss.
Daniel Rowe stabbed a black man in Olympia, the capital of Washington state, outside of a bar at around 8:30pm after seeing the black man kiss a white woman. The 47-year-old black man and his white girlfriend, who is 35, had left the bar when Rowe approached them with a “weird” smile, according to a probable cause statement filed in court. Without warning, Rowe then yelled a racial slur and lunged with his knife, police say. The blade grazed the woman and went into the man’s hip, according to a news release from Olympia police.
“The suspect is unknown to the victims and the attack appears to have been unprovoked,” police said in a statement, calling the attack “purely racial.”
Police explained that Rowe’s behavior grew stranger as officers tried to wrestle him into the back of a patrol car.
“He tells them, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,’” said Lt. Paul Lower, a police department spokesman. “He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest.”
Rowe told police he had come to Olympia, from nearby Richland, in response to anti-police graffiti that had been written over the weekend. He told investigators he knew law enforcement officers “couldn’t hurt the black people on the street” and he would “continue the fight against all of the Black Lives Matter people,” according to the probable cause statement.
Court documents seen by KOMO say Rowe “took a blood oath to fight on the street, and if he was let go tonight, he planned on heading down to the next Donald Trump rally and stomping out more of the Black Lives Matter group.” According to court documents, officers said Rowe had “extensive” white supremacist tattoos including ones including the words “skinhead,” “white power” and the Confederate flag.
“This has all the hallmarks of a hate crime,” Deputy Prosecutor Joseph Wheeler said at Rowe’s court hearing Wednesday, according to the Olympian. “This black-and-white couple was simply expressing their love for one another.”
While neither of Rowe’s victims suffered life-threatening injuries, there was the curious case of the face-eating Florida man who killed two people while wearing signature Trump campaign paraphernalia this week….
Not sure why CNN would pay a racist clown like this to be on the air. The lies people like this promote are ther chief reason the dialog between the people being policed, and the Police breaks down.
My…My…My… This black conservative, Republican strategist Tara Setmayer absolutely rips Chumph apologist and racist Jeffry Lord a new one!
“When I heard this sheriff’s star nonsense yesterday, that this was the excuse, I looked at my husband – who is a federal law enforcement officer, by the way, who was very offended by the implication that a sheriff’s star was what this was instead of the Star of David – the first thing he said when he looked at that was, ‘A sheriff’s star has points on it,’” she said. “This is one of the nonsense excuses that this campaign is using to make up for their incompetence and the fact that they are running an amateur hour presidential campaign.”
Setmayer went on to say that she could excuse this sort of thing if it were the first time Trump had posted a horrendously offensive meme that was created by white supremacists, but in reality he’s now done this on multiple occasions.
“But this is not the first, second, third or fourth time that Donald Trump has gotten in trouble for retweeting things from white supremacists,” she said.
Seems the Chumph is a regular at Neo-Nazi and white supremacist sites…
Donald Trump tweeted a meme Saturday that used dog-whistle anti-Semitism to announce that his political rival, “Crooked Hillary,” had “made history.” The meme Trump tweeted prominently featured the Star of David — a holy symbol of the Jewish religion that Nazis attempted to pervert by forcing Jews over the age of 6 to sew it onto their clothing during Hitler’s reign.
Emblazoned onto the Star of David in Trump’s meme are the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!”
The star lies atop a giant pile of money.
Mic discovered Sunday that Donald Trump’s Twitter wasn’t the first place the meme appeared. The image was previously featured on /pol/ — an Internet message board for the alt-right, a digital movement of neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and white supremacists newly emboldened by the success of Donald Trump’s rhetoric — as early as June 22, over a week before Trump’s team tweeted it.
Though the thread where the meme was featured no longer exists, you can find it by searching the URL in Archive.is, a “time capsule of the internet” that saves unalterable text and graphic of webpages. Doing so allows you to see the thread on /pol/ as it originally existed.
Of note is the file name of the photo, HillHistory.jpg, potentially a nod to the Neo-Nazi code for “HH,” or “Heil Hitler,” which the alt-right is fond of hiding in plain sight.
Other examples of images tweeted by this account include violent propaganda about Muslims and refugees and racist images of Clinton:
On the Internet there are a number of racist trolls. Some are part of a white supremacist group which can usually spotted because they post the “company line”. Trolls most precious weapon is the anonymity. You take that away and they dry up like the weeds they are.
Taking the war to the Trolls
While social media can be an absolute cesspool — seemingly overpopulated by anonymous trolls spewing their special brand of hatred against anyone who is not like them — there are also those who have no qualms about making bigoted comments under their own names on Twitter or Facebook.
With an assist from members of the Hello Racist Facebook community, Hello Bigot shines a light on the racists among us — allowing followers to spread the word via social media of the not-so-secret lives of folks who can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to posting hateful memes and horrific comments.
With a helpful submission button, Hello Bigot followers must provide their own names and other personal information, along with a link to the offending post and screenshots.
Case in point: Danny Clayton of Texas who posted an old black and white photo of “Legal Italian immigrant” children holding American flags, with the comment: “That’s because they are white and have common sense and loved being American citizens not like the n****rs, sandn****rs or wetbacks we have in this country now.”
In an interview with Nancy Laws of HuffPo, the founder of Hello Bigot — who wishes to remain anonymous — explains why they feel the need to, as they call it: “Expose a racist.”
“There are still so many people and segments of society who are still stuck in a place where, for whatever reason, be it hate, ignorance, how they were raised, where they live, etc., racism is still acceptable behavior. It’s still systematically a part of some people’s cultures, lives, and mindset,” they explained, before adding that those people need to be “confronted with their actions.”
“There are still a surprising number of people who are racist who really shouldn’t be because of who they are and what they do professionally. Who, if they are racist, they have the potential to ruin people’s lives when they let their racial biases and prejudices creep in and affect their professional decisions and judgments in ways that are completely incomprehensible and illegal. And that really shouldn’t happen in today’s society,” the site founder continued. “I’m speaking about people who serve society in roles as police officers, teachers, public officials, doctors, bankers, realtors, judges, CEO’s, and others. It’s very critical information to understand if people filling important roles in society are racist and are making decisions and judgments that affect people of all races.”
Asked how the site can make a difference by “outing” bigoted or racist commentary, the answer was fairly simple.
“I think when some people are confronted and called out about their racism, it actually does change them. They become ashamed and embarrassed. But they learn not to do it again. People learn to be racist. And I like to believe that most people at heart don’t really believe in racism or subscribe to it. They just are because that’s what they learned to do and were never told not to or confronted by anyone to tell them that it’s wrong”
Pressed about their own anonymity, threats and lawsuits came to mind, they explained to Laws.
“Legal threats. Threats of violence. Some are laughable. Some are very real and concerning. To the extent possible, I’d like to keep these threats out of other aspects of my life. Being anonymous allows me do that.”
