Mike Pompeo Gets Slapped Down On Twitter For Saying Teaching Kids About Racism Is ‘Really Dangerous’

Like dozens of other delusional Republicans, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is seriously considering seeking the 2024 GOP nomination for president, even though his chances of winning are probably about 1 percent or even lower.

But despite the longshot odds Pompeo is facing, he felt a need to weigh in on the crisis du jour for his party these days: Critical race theory.

Critical race theory has suddenly become the hot-button issue for Republicans, even though it has never been taught in any public school and is only found in some legal theory classes at university-level law schools.

Pompeo entered the fray on Twitter, posting this:

The founding of the United States was flawed. Slaves were deemed to only have 3/5ths of the value of a white man, but were still counted at that decreased rate for the purpose of the census so that Southern states would agree to ratify the Constitution. Women were not allowed to vote, either. Neither were men who didn’t own property in many states. Does that sound fair and equitable?

This country was indeed founded on racist principles, with 41 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence being slave holders! There was no independence for slaves, and shouldn’t every student know that fact? It’s essential to understand why the actions of men and women such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks were so important and resonated with millions of Americans.

Soon after he fired off his Tweet, Pompeo got plenty of reaction on social media, where many reminded him that truth is always a good thing, especially when it shines light on the ugly past of this country:

The United States is imperfect. Every nation is. But we can take comfort in these words that express what we hope to strive for each and every day, generation to generation:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

A more perfect union should always be our goal. And we can only reach that goal by telling the truth, no matter how horrible it might be.

Matt Gaetz Gets Decimated By Defense Secy. For Accusing The Military Of Using ‘Critical Race Theory’

Desperate to deflect attention from accusations that he sexually trafficked underage girls for his own perverted pleasure, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) attempted to pick a fight with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin by accusing the U.S. military of using “critical race theory” to the detriment of American national security.

Declaring that critical race theory is the “number one concern” of military officers, Gaetz then told Secretary Austin:

“I’ve heard those sentiments most frequently from units that are majority-minority. How should the Department of Defense think about critical race theory?”

Clearly agitated by such an absurd question, the defense secretary responded:

“I don’t know what the issue of critical race theory is. We do not teach critical race theory. We don’t embrace critical race theory. And I think that’s a spurious conversation. We are focused on extremist behaviors and not ideology, not people’s thoughts, not people’s political orientation.”

Austin then continued his verbal destruction of the Florida congressman by telling him:

“And thanks for your anecdotal input. But I would say that I’ve gotten ten times that amount of input — 50 times that amount of input on the other side that has said, ‘We’re glad to have had the ability to have a conversation without ourselves and our leadership.'”

Gaetz then dared to interrupt the defense chief:

“It may be that you’re receiving that input in the ratios you describe because it was your directive. It may be people are concerned about criticizing your decision.”

The Florida Republican also accused the defense secretary of “hiring a critical race theorist” as an adviser, which drew this response from Austin:

“This is the first I’ve ever heard [Bishop Garrison] being described as a critical race theorist. Let me just share one thing you brought up, Congressman, about the input that comes to me. I trust my leadership from top to bottom that they will give me fair and balanced and unvarnished input.

“And for you to say people are telling me what I want to hear, I get it. You know, maybe they are telling you what you want to hear.”

Matt Gaetz is a whiny little punk who allegedly enjoys sleeping with children. He belongs in prison and will likely be there very soon. Maybe when he gets there, he can discuss his fascination with critical race theory with his cellmate.

Here’s the video of Matt getting slapped down by Lloyd Austin:

History Media in America Racism WTF?!

Newsmax Guest: Teaching Kids About Slavery Will Lead To ‘Death Camps’ For White People

Over the years, there’s been some absolutely moronic, absurd, and misleading shit said on right-wing media, most notably Fox News, which is infamous for trafficking in lies and conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact or grounding in reality.

But in today’s wide-open media bouillabaisse of anything goes inanity — fueled in part by the explosion of social media platforms and ubiquity of the internet everywhere you go — we have even more extreme mutant strains of nutbaggery such as Newsmax, where today’s batshit, head-shaking headline originated with a discussion of “critical race theory” which led to a guest warning that teaching about slavery and how whites have treated blacks in the United States over the centuries will result in “death camps” for white people.

Those words came from right-wing radio host Michael Savage, who told Newsmax hosts Steve Cortes and Jenn Pellegrino that there’s already violence against whites all over the country:

“And now they’re beating up white children in schoolrooms. And I’m not going to mince words. You can cut me off if you have to. I know you probably agree with me. I can’t take this anymore. And there’s only one solution to it—sue the goddamn schools if they do it to your child for child abuse, and you will win.”

Yeah, kids didn’t start beating each other up until racism became a topic of discussion, right, Michael? As for suing for child abuse, can we also sue parents who voted for Trump and believe his bullshit? Seems only fair, don’t you agree?

Rather than provide proof of his specious assertions, Savage went full douche and brought up Nazi Germany and the Holocaust:

“The same kind of thing started in Germany. The Jews were no good. The Jews did this. The Jews did that. The next thing you know they were being excluded from swimming pools. They didn’t put them in concentration camps overnight.

“I studied this intimately. I am Jewish. I know how this starts. Attacks on white people is exactly what was done to the Jews in Germany in the 1930s. Don’t fall for this garbage. This is the road to the death camps. Stand up to these bastards and sue them!”

Jewish Americans were once excluded from public swimming pools, clubs, and schools in this country, too. Did it lead to concentration camps? No. It led to reforms, change, and a growth in American consciousness that allowed this country to evolve and realize the ignorance of such discrimination.

We have to understand where we’ve been as a nation in order to make sure we don’t repeat the past endlessly and lose our souls. Learning from history — even the dark and controversial parts — is how we prevent repeating it.

Ivanka Trump Racism WTF?!

Actress Vivica A. Fox Says Ivanka Trump Used A Racist Insult On The Set Of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

Much like her father and brothers, Ivanka Trump likes to pretend that she’s not bigoted, but then she opens her mouth and proves otherwise.

Actress Vivica A. Fox was a contestant on “The Celebrity Apprentice” back in 2015, and she told host Andy Cohen on Friday’s episode of “For Real: The Story of Reality TV,” that not only did Ivanka make a racist remark, but she probably didn’t even realize she’d done so:

“I’ll never forget that when I did ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and Ivanka Trump, she said, ‘Wow, you speak very well.’

“No, Andy. I hate to say it. I don’t think she knew at the time that she was insulting us. I really think that she thought she was complimenting us. That it was like, ‘Oh, wow, you guys are intelligent.’”

Cohen noted that he was somewhat shocked Ivanka’s remark was allowed to make the final edit of the episode, but he chalked it up to white people being clueless just how offensive such a comment is to a black person:

“Think of the layers and layers of white people that saw a cut of that show and aired it and they said, ‘Oh, this is great.'”

Failed, one-term former President Donald Trump once told producers of “The Apprentice” that it would be a great idea to pit black contestants against white ones:

“I think that it would be handled very beautifully by me,” Trump said of the concept at the time, even boasting to radio host Howard Stern that it would be “the highest-rated show on television.”

Highest-rated show on television? Please! Donald Trump never had any show that got the best ratings and he never will. Even his State of the Union addresses scored lower ratings than those of his predecessors.

As for Ivanka, she’s clearly a chip off the old white supremacist block.

Here’s Vivica Fox speaking with Andy Cohen:

Racism The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Stephen Miller Proudly Brags He’s Suing The Biden Administration To Protect White People

Now that his personal Lord and Savior, Donald Trump, is no longer in the White House, former presidential adviser Stephen Miller is struggling to remain relevant until some right-wing network or website hires him to once again get paid for spewing hatred and bigotry.

Instead, Miller is filing lawsuits and then appearing on Fox News so he can announce they’ve been filed. That’s what he’s now engaged in to pass the time and perpetuate his patented message of xenophobia and racism.

On Sunday, Miller joined Maria Bartiromo to let the world know that he’s filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration because they’re daring to make sure that black farmers are treated equitably with their white counterparts.

Translation: Miller is suing to protect white people from being discriminated against.

At issue is $5 billion allocated to minority farmers who were denied funding under the Trump administration, according to The Independent:

“The $5bn is intended to help socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers with loan forgiveness. Qualifying recipients include Black, Hispanic, Native American, Alaskan native, Asian-American and Pacific Islander farmers and ranchers, but not white farmers and ranchers.

“White farmers and ranchers have long been the recipients of substantial federal subsidies that make it possible for farms to operate and keep food prices relatively inexpensive.”

That $5 billion for farmers of color cannot be allowed to stand, Miller proclaimed:

“We filed two lawsuits. One lawsuit to ensure that farm aid is delivered irrespective of one’s race and ethnicity.

“The Biden administration has specifically excluded people solely based on skin color. That’s outrageous.”

Miller’s other lawsuit against the Biden administration deals with immigration, which Miller tried to restrict as much as possible when Trump was in office. He explained it this way:

“Imagine you were living in an apartment building and a new landlord came in and he ripped off all the doors, he ripped out all the windows and he said that any lawbreaker, any trespasser, any vandal, anyone — even criminal — who wants to come into your building and your unit is free to do so. That is what President Biden has done to the country.”

That’s complete and utter bullshit. President Biden is doing no such thing, but since when have Republicans ever put truth and facts ahead ahead of propaganda?

Miller’s lawsuits will fail. They’ll be dismissed with prejudice and laughed out of court. But at least Miller can claim he’s a vanguard of the GOP and remind right-wingers what a heartless douche he is.

Stephen Miller — just like his former boss — is a cancer on the United States.
