Congress Racism WTF?!

Several House Republicans Have Formed A White Supremacy Caucus To Promote ‘Anglo-Saxon Traditions’

Under the guise of putting “America First,” several House Republicans have formed their own white supremacist caucus that they say will promote “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.”

Jake Sherman of Punchbowl News broke the story about the newly-formed caucus:

The phrase “America first” has been around for hundreds of years. It’s been used by various nativist and blatantly racist groups for decades. Those include the Ku Klux Klan and the hardcore MAGA movement that failed, one-term President Donald Trump touched off when he announced he would be seeking the Republican presidential nomination back in June of 2015.

Mediate reports that the founding members of the new caucus are a who’s who of racist shitbags who have managed to get themselves elected:

“Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who hasn’t met a conspiracy theory she didn’t love, and Paul Gosar (R-AZ), known to have rubbed elbows with white nationalists and Q-Anon followers, have already been linked to the caucus, according to Punchbowl. Reps. Barry Moore (R-AL) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) have also reportedly agreed to join the group.”

The preamble of the “America First” caucus is clear and disgusting:

“The America First Caucus (AFC) exists to promote Congressional policies that are to the long-term benefit of the American nation. The North Star of any policy proposal will be that which serves the American people, and any consequential analysis of policy platforms must be based on this first principle.

“It is the firm belief of this Caucus that American policy-making needs to get back to first principles, restore a long-term time horizon amongst our nation’s leaders, and instill a greatly internalized sense of service to the American people on part of our elected leaders. As long as these principles are put and kept in practice, the interests of the American people will be safeguarded.”

Oh, and let’s not forget the so-called “policies” of the group, which sound like something hatched from the perverted minds of Adolf Hitler and David Duke:

Translation: It’s all about honoring White Anglo-Saxons. No one else is welcome in their brave new whitewashed version of the United States, despite the fact that Caucasians stole the land we all live on from the Native Americans and once owned slaves whose only crime was being born black.

As you’d expect, there’s plenty of other racist dog whistles, such as this declaration on the issue of immigration:

“An important distinction between post-1965 immigrants and previous waves of settlers is that previous cohorts were more educated, earned higher wages, and did not have an expansive welfare state to fall back on when they could not make it in America and thus did not stay in the country at the expense of the native-born.”

Really? Irish immigrants were derided as ignorant and drunken. Italian immigrants were hated for not speaking English. German immigrants were called the enemy during the First World War. In World War II, the United States government placed over 120,000 Japanese-Americans into internment camps. Their only crime? Being of Japanese ancestry.

The modern GOP is little more than a new iteration of the same hatred and bigotry we’ve seen in this country for hundreds of years. They may pretend to be inclusive, but their idea of inclusivity is building a wall around anyone who doesn’t look like them.

America First caucus? It would be a lot more honest to just call it the 21st Century KKK.

GOP History Racism

Mitch McConnell Gets Taken To The Woodshed For Trying To Paper Over The GOP’s Racist History

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) thought he’d try and rewrite the history of his party on Tuesday, but he immediately got smacked down by the facts about the GOP which are written in bigotry and hatred.

During a debate on whether or not to eliminate the filibuster in the U.S. Senate, McConnell said the procedure — through which one senator can bring all business in the upper chamber to a screeching halt — had not been used in the past (by Republicans) to delay passage of civil rights legislation in the 1950s:

“It has no racial history at all. None. There’s no dispute among historians about that.”

That’s a lie, and McConnell said it knowing damn well it was a lie.

History shows that the longest filibuster ever held in the Senate was made by the blatantly racist GOP Sen. Strom Thurmond in opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1957, speaking continuously for 24 hours and 15 minutes to prevent black Americans from having the same rights as whites.

Steven S. Smith, a political scientist at Washington University in St. Louis, explained the use of the filibuster by Republicans during the bad old days:

“The histories of the filibuster, civil and voting rights, and race in America are intertwined.”

How racist is the history of the Senate filibuster? It was once used to block anti-lynching bills. That is the shameful past of the procedure McConnell tried to paper over.

Fortunately, however, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance of Alabama was quick to counter McConnell, noting:

When he started getting criticism, McConnell’s office tried to walk back what he’d said:

For those who aren’t familiar with the full history of the Republican Party, it was once the Party of Lincoln. But then Richard Nixon was elected, followed by Ronald Reagan (who railed against “welfare queens” in a blatant attack on African-American women), and later was the party of choice for Donald Trump, who called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and suggested that anyone who dared to protest was a hoodlum or an “animal.” The GOP has become the party of bigotry and racial hatred. And the filibuster is part of that legacy, despite what McConnell or any other revisionist historian tries to assert.

How can you tell when someone is a racist? When they deny their own past, their support of bigots, and their cozy relationship with neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and white separatists.

Nice try, Mitch, but you’re just as full of shit as ever. And you’re also a terrible liar.

Fox News Media in America Racism WTF?!

Candace Owens Claims In-Person Learning Teaches American Kids To Hate White People

You’ve probably seen Candace Owens on various Fox News programs or run across her moronic postings on social media. She’s also a strong proponent of the so-called Blexit movement, which urges African-Americans and other people of color to leave the Democratic Party and pledge their allegiance to Republicans, even though doing so would not be the least bit beneficial to black or brown people.

Now, however, Owens is trying to suggest that coronavirus is a blessing because in-person learning is worthless and only serves to make American children into voters who are anti-white.

During an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, host Maria Bartiromo was speaking with Owens and declared:

“They’re assuming every [white] kid is a racist, Candace.”

That was all the prompting Owens needed to send her off on a fact-free rant:

“I know that Megyn Kelly pulled her kids from school for similar reason. I truly believe that it’s time for us to pull our kids out of school. And I know people say, ‘Not all of us can afford to do that,’ but the country wasn’t built on people having a lot of money when they were homeschooling.”

And what about parents who work away from home and cannot be there to homeschool their children? What are they supposed to do? Quit their jobs and become homeschool instructors? Clearly, as with most things she pontificates on, Owens hasn’t bothered to actually do any thinking on the issue.

From there, Owens then raised the specter of Marxism, though she’s probably never read a damn thing Karl Marx wrote:

“It’s indoctrination that’s happening. They’re trying to fuel racism in this country. They’re trying to teach this Marxist ideology. And the bad thing is, Maria, that they’re replacing hard academics. These kids are not learning science, they’re not learning mathematics, they’re learning how to hate white people and they’re learning how to hate their country.”

If that wasn’t bad enough, Owens also suggested suing every public school in the United States. Oddly, she never made that statement when Betsy DeVos was Secretary of Education. That alone proves just how completely full of shit Candace Owens is, and how desperate she is to be in the spotlight now that her savior, Donald Trump, has been sent into retirement and is likely facing criminal indictment in the weeks ahead.

But by all means, sue your kid’s school. Then send the legal bills to Candace Owens and see if she’s willing to pay them. After all, it was her stupid idea.

Here’s Candace Owens on Fox News:

Crime Donald Trump Impeachment Racism WTF?!

Revealed: Trump’s Impeachment Defense Will Be To Blame Black People For Inciting Violence

On Monday, the unprecedented second Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump will begin, and the charge this time will be incitement of insurrection for his role in the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol which led to the death of a police officer and four other people.

Since we have the former president’s own words from the speech he gave shortly before thousands of his supporter attacked Congress, what possible defense could Trump’s attorneys use? Simple. He plans to blame black people.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) revealed the Trump legal strategy Sunday during an appearance on Fox News, telling host Chris Wallace:

“I think you’re going to see the Trump defense play video of Rep. Maxine Waters telling crowds to mob Trump administration officials and attack them. They’ll probably show clips of Cory Booker saying get up in their face of these congresspeople. You’ll probably see comments from Rep. Omar celebrating the violence that happened to me when I had six ribs broken and part of a lung removed.”

But did Maxine Waters really urge people to “attack” Trump officials? No. She most certainly didn’t. Here’s exactly what she said:

“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothing yet. You have members of your cabinet being booed out of restaurants. You have protesters taking up at their house. We say no peace, no sleep. No peace, so sleep. And guess what? We’re going to win this battle because while you try to quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions, and others, you really don’t know the Bible. God is on our side. On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable. On the side of understanding that if we can’t protect the children, we can’t protect anybody, and so let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure that we show up where ever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Did Maxine Waters urge crowds of people to march to the White House and engage violence once they got there? She didn’t Did Ilhan Omar encourage Rand Paul’s neighbor to attack him? Nope.

Of course, it’s no surprise that Trump and his attorneys will attempt to blame African-Americans for his crimes. After all, the Trump family has been discriminating and persecuting black people for decades. It’s what they do.

Just when you think Donald Trump cannot possibly be any more disgusting, he lowers the bar yet again and limbos right under it.

Fox News Fox News Lies Joe Biden Media in America Racism WTF?!

Fox News Reporter Gets Humiliated When He Claims Biden Is Just As Racist As Trump

At Monday’s daily White House press briefing, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy thought he’d ask a question while also attempting to make an absurd comparison between President Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump.

Specifically, Doocy asked about new travel restrictions on the United Kingdom (along with large parts of Europe) and South Africa to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 variants that have been discovered in those areas:

“President Trump was imposing travel restrictions in March specifically on China. Then-candidate Biden called it ‘xenophobic’ and ‘fear-mongering.’ So, now-President Biden is putting travel restrictions on people coming in from other countries. What words would you use to describe this?”

Press Secretary Jen Psaki replied:

“Well, I don’t think that’s quite a fair articulation. The President has been clear that he felt the Muslim ban was xenophobic; he overturned the Muslim ban. He also though has supported, and he himself – even before we did, I should say even before he was inaugurated – steps, travel restrictions in order to keep the American people safe, to ensure that we are getting the pandemic under control, that’s been part of his policy, but he was critical of the former president for having a policy that was not more comprehensive than travel restrictions, and he conveyed at the time and, more recently, the importance of having a multifaceted approach, mask wearing, vaccine distribution, funding in order to get 100 million shots in the arms of Americans in the first 100 days, not just travel restrictions.”

Not only that, but Trump’s China travel ban didn’t do a bit of good. The novel coronavirus entered the U.S. from Europe, not China, and yet Trump steadfastly refused to ban travel from Europe.

Doocy was ripped to shreds on Twitter for his lame attempt to equate Biden with Trump:

Nice try, Doocy, but all you did was wind up with an embarrassing shit stain on your face.
