    8 years of belittling "Cousin Ray Ray" & "Uncle Pookie" speeches as he deported and bombed Black and Brown folks. Yep.

    Remember when Obama blamed African poverty on African corruption and even the Financial Time said no white president could have gotten away with that?!
  4. Obama hagiography will be particularly potent and dangerous right now. That is why we must take it on. Any film depicting Samantha Power as a hero is a lie. We have to say so. .

    Racism is when you say racist things. Dropping 20,000+ bombs across the Arab world well that's just sound foreign policy.
  7. I was going to say “Ignore Trump!” But then came along. Now I’m paying attention but precisely because this is all a joke.
  8. Human rights are a joke in America, the world’s biggest jailer.

    RIP Andrew Sullivan, he got a papercut on his dick while trying to fuck a copy of The Bell Curve and died of sphaeropsis tip blight, which normally only affects pine trees

    Once again, Trump sullies the Presidency by crudely saying what most elites think.
  12. No Foreign Bases conference kicks off today in Baltimore with a rally at 3:00 p.m. .
  13. I'll see you today at 3:00 p.m. in Baltimore. Close all foreign bases! . . .
  14. Don Lemon went in on Trump! Bill Kristol criticized Trump! And that my friends is proof that this brouhaha is something you should ignore.
  15. "Sh** show." That's how Barack Obama referred to Libya after he destroyed it.
  16. Barack Obama led a NATO/jihadist coalition to topple the Libyan government and kill thousands of people. Massacres of African migrants and darker skinned Libyans followed. When the war crime didn't work out as he hoped he referred to the attacked nation as a "sh** show."

    I agree with focus less on the words and more on the actions of Trump and his predecessors. President of the United States calls African countries "sh**hole" via
  18. President of the United States calls African countries "sh**hole" My take on the latest Trump contretemps of "shithole" countries. I appeared on .
  19. The president of the U.S. is a hateful man who doesn’t bother to filter himself. People living in huts in “sh**hole” countries etc. But Walmart is laying off thousands of people. There is a bubble of crypto currencies. Don’t let this asshole distract you. Shit, meet fan.

    Democrats & Republicans reached across the aisle today to continue warrantless spying on Americans. The bipartisan "war on terror" is shredding your rights & pouring gas on the flames of terrorism, but at least their campaign funders are getting rich off your tax money.

    Dem Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, two of the most vociferous "Russiagate" proponents, just voted to vest Trump with enormous surveillance powers. Maybe a host of one of the cable TV shows they appear on multiple times per week could ask about that paradox.

    This inversion of the left is interesting to observe. Marching towards McCarthyism completely unironically.
  23. First RT now Sputnik must register as a foreign agent. This attack on freedom of information and the press is being directed by democrats more than republicans.
