      We should destroy every Confederate statue in America and replace them with figures of the Obamas elect the impeachment ready dem majority in both houses just to piss off the KKK & Nazis to remove a world threat.

    Rachel Maddow’s first segment last night was a solid lesson in history. And she concluded with the president today is trying to bring these fascist, white supremacist groups back to the center of American life: this was not an accident, it is on purpose. This was not a careless mistake. “Heads UP”

          There was a political deal re: a contested election. Federal troops being removed from the South was part of the agreement. Afterward, the KKK, end of voting rights, economic and educational oppression, and no Black representation in Senate for over 100 years.

          • August 17, 2017 at 11:25 am

            yessssssss…i can see why the history was not told ..not must for the black folks who were slaves…but for all the white families who lost their sons…it is truly immoral ..and of course they hid all of that…

          • August 17, 2017 at 11:28 am

            and…why don’t we ever hear from the Sons and Daughters of the UNION soldiers…when there is talk of the Civil War…the focus is only on the Confederacy…what about the Union soldiers…there is so much to unpack…

    waiting a few days to know the real reason why banon gave that interview to that specific publication …… something does not add up ….. we will see;

    I also note that he took the opportunity to give Democrats unsolicited “advice”;

    => “advice” claiming that continuing to use “identity politics” will guarantee that he and the gop would win so much;

    ….. makes me think that this is a trick to cower those Democrats who listen too much to beltway advice;

    …….. and also manipulate those Dems and the “revolutionaries” who were already trying to push the party against inclusion and diversity and focus on “white working class”

    Some good news (personal) our adopted dog finally came home today. He had kennel cough for 2 weeks.. and then got neutered, so we had to wait an additional week. Turns out he’s 4 yrs old and is a Cane Corso. He’s really handsome, but I can see he will need a good long adjustment period. Anyway, should be an adventure 🙂 Trying to keep my rage at a simmer as much as possible.

      GM Dudette.

      FUBAR truly is the 21st century’s Pandora’s Box.

      From the article:
      “Among other things, he [the fired assistant principal who was fired by the Texas school] wanted the evil alligator’s minions to look more like a cartoon meme of Muslim women in burkas.”

      Beyond disgusting.

      This is how young minds are poisoned – the ‘water supply’, i.e. the education system, is contaminated with RW kooks like this guy who can’t contain his nuttiness.

      Context for MSM’s abysmal coverage of Campaign 2016, and how they’re still defending the horror that they actively promoted:

      August 17, 2017 at 8:31 am

      Nobody cared about Secretary Clinton’s email server. The Rightwing used it as a wedge issue and faked outrage and the MSM used it as entertainment. And here we are with a White House where the “President” uses twitter to issue policy statements.

    GE/GM TODville.

    I realize that only Dudette is still here (and it’s nearing 2am for her!), but for those who may scroll up to see this…

    re: Bannon’s call to Robert Kuttner of @prospect (progressive magazine — ?) re: North Korea…

    And summoning Pence back from Panama to attend “National Security” meeting at Camp David this weekend…

    But other sources say Camp David’s agenda is Afghanistan.

    If you do a Twitter search for Camp David, lots of speculation that FUBAR is planning to resign, or something to that effect (like House of Cards, I guess, have never seen that show), like this one:

    Don’t think that will happen, but confusing since MSM is reporting that the topic will be either Afghanistan or North Korea… and Bannon “leaked his thoughts about China and North Korea to @prospect).

    • 97 arapaho415
      August 17, 2017 at 2:03 am

      Just realized that NBC’s tweet referred to “South Asia” which is probably Afghanistan, not North Korea, but CBS radio news reported that North Korea will be discussed.

    • August 17, 2017 at 8:53 am

      Don’t these people plan anything? Afghan meeting at the last minute and/or just no coordination with VP – this is mind-boggling.
