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.

Congress Racism WTF?!

Alan Dershowitz Compares Maxine Waters To The KKK And Gets Hit With Massive Internet Fury

In what some are calling a desperate cry for attention, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz set off a firestorm of revulsion and anger by comparing Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) to the domestic terrorist group the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

According to Mediaite, Dershowitz’s comments came during an appearance on Newsmax Tuesday in response to remarks made by Waters on the trial of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin.

Specifically, Waters urged the fight for justice to continue no matter what the verdict was in the Chauvin trial:

“We have got to fight for justice. I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. I don’t know whether it’s in the first degree, but as far as I’m concerned it’s first degree.

“We have got to stay on the streets and we have got to get more active. We have got to get more confrontational. We have got to make sure that they know that they know we mean business.”

Dershowitz was outraged by what Waters said, responding:

“That’s not the way the system of justice should operate. We’re not under the rule of law in Minneapolis, we’re under the rule of the crowd.

“The irony of what Congresswoman Waters did, she borrowed the playbook of the Ku Klux Klan from the 192os, the 1930s. They would stand outside of courtrooms and they would threatened violence if any juror would ever acquit, a black person or convict a white person.”

Dershowitz then added:

“Now we’re seeing exactly the opposite was seeing mobs outside the courthouse and was seeing members of Congress just like the Klan had governors and senators and very prominent public officials demanding verdicts in particular cases is and now we have a member of Congress demanding a verdict in the case.”

That didn’t sit well with many on Twitter, who blasted Dershowitz for such a disgusting comparison and reminded him of the allegations against him:

Alan Dershowitz may have been a brilliant lawyer in his day, but now he’s just another right-wing nutjob. And God knows there are way too many of those.

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.
