    • 19 jacquelineoboomer
      August 12, 2017 at 11:28 pm

      Agree. But leaving off the hoods allows some of their images to be spread all over social media. I’m guessing some have actual jobs, and I’m hoping many of them will be fired on Monday, after being recognized.

      Of course, I believe in the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny, too, there’s that.

    You know, this pic that PBO used in his first tweet has graced the front page of TOD many times in the past. I always thought it was an adorable pic of our President interacting with the little ones. But it’s only tonight with PBO’s tweet did I consider that the kids are from different racial/ethnic groups and have different skin colors, yet they are all huddling together to look out through the same window without seemingly a care about the race or skin color of the kid standing next them to them.

    And this is what may have most intrigued PBO as he stopped by to greet them. The pureness of the hearts of our youngest children. Their natural curiosity is about the outside world, not how to hate others because of their skin or race. I’m glad he used that pic, because I gained a perspective from it that I hadn’t before. Once again, our President Obama is using this as a teachable moment for the betterment of humanity.

      This story from MLK has always stayed with me – since someone on TOD mentioned it – I don’t know when. Children are not born racist.

      “From the age of three I had a white playmate who was about my age. We always felt free to play our childhood games together. He did not live in our community, but he was usually around every day; his father owned a store across the street from our home. At the age of six we both entered school—separate schools, of course. I remember how our friendship began to break as soon as we entered school; this was not my desire but his. The climax came when he told me one day that his father had demanded that he would play with me no more. I never will forget what a great shock this was to me. I immediately asked my parents about the motive behind such a statement.”

    I hope that the cops who arrested the 20 year old driver remembered PP’s advice … and didn’t put a hand over the driver’s head as he got in the back seat of the cop car! Remember what PP said … don’t be afraid to rough him up a little.

    America … don’t be afraid. Be strong. You will overcome this. There is a lesson somewhere in all this, for those who need to learn.

    Elections have consequences.

    As an ole white dude, I CANNOT wrap my head around those young white DOUCHEBAGS that descended on Charlottesville. WTF?? How….. I know they feed on each other, they probably can’t get dates….and are brainwashed by pernicious right-wing GARBAGE online. But still, it’s not enough to have their sick, deluded ideas and pasty buddy clubs? they actually SHOWED UP EN MASSE, with silly little helmets, sticks and shields to put on such a pathetic display of ignorance, cowardice and hate? These ARE NOT DISENFRANCHISED blue collar workers. (That would not be an excuse for violence, but at least something worthy of empathy.)

    How did they get so fucking detached from reality and humanity?

      GM magapie,

      Responding late, so doubt if you will see this, but you’ve hit the nail on the head.

      I felt the same way seeing the knee-jerk reaction of many “people” (or at least online presences) while PBO was in office — completely “detached from reality and humanity.”

      How else can you possibly explain actions like this?

    These are exactly my thoughts….and this is EXACTLY what I had on my mind when I woke up this morning….

    http://washingtonmonthly.com/2017/08/13/get-out-time-for-republicans-horrified-by-charlottesville-to-leave-the-gop/

    If Painter has been a Republican for 30 years, then he knows damn well how long his party has been race-baiting. He knows damn well how the Republican Party resisted integrated schools, affirmative action, efforts to stop police brutality, and any and all efforts to remedy discrimination against African-Americans and other non-majority groups. He knows damn well that the GOP stopped embracing Abraham Lincoln decades ago–and wrapped its arms around the reactionary forces that gave rise to the viciousness in Virginia.

    If Painter is so morally offended by what happened in Charlottesville yesterday, he will renounce the GOP today and leave the party. If Ana Navarro is so morally offended by what happened in Charlottesville yesterday, she will renounce the GOP today and leave the party. If any Republican who bore witness to yesterday’s terrorism is horrified by what they saw, they will renounce the GOP today and leave the party.

    “Painter” is in reference to Richard Painter, Bush WH Ethics lawyer

      If they have the moral courage they will get out. In their eyes the only thing that Trump does wrong is that he speaks his mind outside of the “quiet rooms” that Mitt Romney talked about. There are no more quiet rooms to speak of, Trump has destroyed them all. The Republicans have had more than enough time to denounce Trump, and they chose not to. Anything short of self-immolation will not save the Republican Party.

          But it’s an important starting point.

          It’s going to take quite a bit to remove Trump from the Oval Office one way or another, but Bannon and Miller craft his policy and messages.
          Trump knows nothing about how to actually DO things from the Executive Branch.

          And Mueller can’t come up with the grounds to oust Sessions fast enough.

          David Duke endorses ALL of these administration picks, because they’re all in there to aid and abet the white nationalist cause. I want Sessions out ASAP, as he’s in the position to give DoJ cover to all the white supremacists in law enforcement.

          Start somewhere, but any of these three, and as soon as possible will do.

          • August 13, 2017 at 3:56 pm

            I’m not saying that Bannon and Miller shouldn’t be removed. I’m saying anyone who replaces them will be of the same “caliber” and won’t do anything to change Trump.

              Bannon seems to be the architect of the ‘dismantle the government’ strategy if that whiteboard pic is accurate. I wonder how he was chosen (Putin)?

              But yes, whoever’s calling the shots is making sure the fabric of the U.S. government is destroyed by these admin and cabinet choices.

    ……………….. hypocrisy displayed by republicans office holders who are pretending to condemn the actions of these fellow scumbags while at the same time enjoying their campaign contributions, votes and also pushing policies (at all levels of government) that are promoting the demands of these hatemongers.

    ……………… judge people by what they do not just by what they say ….. and the Dr. Angelou said, when they show you who they are believe them.

    ………………… I hope people understand that ordinary people who believe in socio-economic justice and equality for everyone must continue to lead this fight for the soul of this nation and world.

    ………….. no one individual can do it alone and certainly not the people whose political power is built on this.

    …………..we have to work together, each one doing their part, for an extremely long time, with each generation doing its part to push progress for all
