Last night Fox's Tucker Carlson called the Alaska's bill changing Columbus Day to "Indigenous People's Day" an "attack on civilization". I got a chuckle.
Is this real life?
Nope. Nazi propaganda.
Fox hasn't been connected to reality or American civilization since before the turn of the century. They were practically speaking German in 2003 in the run-up to the Iraq War.
Fox is the propaganda wing of the GOP. Nothing more. They're bought, paid for, and in perpetual servitude of their masters.
"THIS ITEM OF NEWS WILL ANGER YOU. WATCH THE COMMERCIALS AND WAIT FOR ME TO MAKE YOU ANGRIER."
-Fox News host scripts
Amazing how quickly the "patriotic" Conservates will gargle the balls of a hostile foreign nation who interfered with our democratic process. Literally destroying the integrity of the very foundation of our nation, and these "patriots" are tripping over themselves to make excuses for how much it's ok.
They can have a signed check from Putin to Trump or video taped footage of Trump asking Putin to hack voting machines to win him the election. None of it matters as long as republicans put party before country and control congress.
That didn't happen.
And if it did, it wasn't that bad.
And if it was, that's not a big deal.
And if it is, that's not my fault.
And if it was, I didn't mean it.
And if I did...
You deserved it.
Trump could come out on national TV and say, verbatim, "Putin hacked the planet to get me elected, I'm unqualified, and I literally can't read" and his rabid supporters would call it 6-dimensional water polo.
That defense defines the Neo-Right: "bbbut Hillary! ... bbbut Obama!"
They never address any issue on face but always deflect and project.
Just waiting for that tweet when Trump admits to colluding like he admitted to his travel ban, any day now...right?
Let's not forget the "are you a cop, you have to tell me if you're a cop" mentality he had with Comey's investigation. Going for all the classics, it seems.
"Yeah I did collude...but SO WHAT? Why didn't anyone stop me???"
It's OK. The GOP was on tv all day today saying it's so much better coverage and so much cheaper and will insure everyone -so that's what the dolts in our country will believe.
He doesn't even try to keep his promises.
Their ability to just straight up lie is kinda amazing .
...and his supporters don't care.
WTF is wrong with those assholes?
They hate people not useful to them, directly. Sociopathy is a virtue!
They want to make sure that the federal government has no protections, no rights, and does nothing. They can then step in and offer things, like healthcare, at an extreme profit. Without any protections from the gov't, they can then just do whatever they want. Want to see what an unregulated health care market would look like, check out pet insurance.
This is the type of scum that screws up the overwhelming majority of hard working middle class citizens of the U.S.A.
Within the past 36 hours, Trump has: 1) called the Russian election interference a hoax, and, 2) has faulted Obama for not doing enough to stop it. This is actually real life.
It's a hoax!
And Obama didn't do enough to stop it!
And people still believe him, what suckers.
if only Trump supporters were able to have rational thoughts, they would see the two are statement are mutually exclusives.
Unfortunately all they hear is:
something that's prejudicial to Trump hoax - "Of course people are after Trump because he's awesome"
something something blame Obama - "I'm glad the guy from Kenya is not in power anymore."
The facts are nothing but white noise for them
Do Trump supporters really want a dictator?
Now I understand why Bohemian Rhapsody is so popular right now.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
A lot of people are asking themselves these questions whenever Trump tweets.
We have heard endless congressional testimony -- under oath -- in public -- and including from Trump appointed agency heads.
They have ALL said the same thing.
We were subject to a historic attack. We will continue to be subject to ongoing attacks. (And, for all we know, recent special elections in Montana, Georgia, South Carolina -- who knows, maybe they were under attack too.)
But for all that, Trump shrugs, says "fake news," "who knows, maybe China."
And Republican-controlled Congress -- supposed to be a check -- is doing nothing of substance. Nothing to counter Trump.
This is a really dangerous situation.
Shame on Republicans for not siding with the American people. We deserve a leader who will shine a light on darkness to be rid of it, not invite it in for tea in the Oval office.
Same thing that's been going on since last year. Coup d'etat.
The Constitution is not in effect. They are in open violation, and the scope of their violations will increase and become more violent.
it will take more than shame. they do not care about your opinions on this matter.
Yeah, they're fucking assholes. Don't worry sentor's the capitol police will make sure your constituents are kept in line! What a fucking disgrace - that was hard to watch and the fuckwads that denied her the ability to protest in a building she helps pay for should be fired and publicly shamed.
Is there a reason they couldn't just wheel her out?
I don't think it was hard to watch, I think it was watching a great American peacefully do their part while knowing the consequences.
She went to the building to protest and get removed. While I agree with her protest she does not have the right to disrupt government buildings with an unplanned protest. Even still, she decided her protest was worth the consequences. I doubt she will see more than a fine and a ban from the building in the future. The Cops carrying her out, is probably why we've seen this, I'm not saying they purposefully did her a favor, but it did work out for her. They were calm and careful with her, someone probably told them to use four officers surrounding her, might be because they feared her throwing herself on the ground or grabbing things around her to stop them removing her, increasing protest time, or in general escalating the situation.
The real assholes are the reason she felt the need to protest, those that would cut medicaid, middle class tax credits, and defund planned parenthood so that their rich friends and them can profit from poor people becoming more poor.
**Edit: I donated to ADAPT here to let them know we stand with them. Apparently 43 people were arrested from this protest for: Crowding, Obstructing or Incommoding and were sent to U.S. Capitol Police headquarters for proces... Thanks for my first gold!
Unplanned? Protest safe zones are a fucking joke. MLK wouldn't get shit done in a prescribed fenced off area where he would never be seen or heard
If Trump really wants to undo everything the previous administration did he should reconsider building a Death Star. Walls are for amateurs if he really wants to fuck up the world he need's to build a Death Star and have the Empire pay for it.
Trump doesn't listen to the people. Why do you think he surrounded himself with corporate people, even when they're unqualified for their position?
Also, Obama made that promise, to respond to the petitions. Trump would never make a promise like that unless it is to Russia.
these petitions were setup by Obama right? Why would they pay attention?
"These million people are clearly fake and Mexican, so I will not respond. However Sergey and Oleg just asked me for all of my company's financial records dating back to its founding and it would just be rude not to show them."
The Guardian reported earlier this month that Trump has told May he does not want to go ahead with the state visit until the British public supports it.
The comments, made in a phone call, would seem to put the visit on hold indefinitely.
He's obsessed with "winning" and being accepted as a big deal by powerful and wealthy people. This has to sting because the British monarchy is the ultimate symbol of this.
That's a long wait for a train don't come
May is imploding and taking her party with her. She isn't really the asset she was just a month ago after forcing an election that did not go the way she thought it would.
EDIT: Over use of words.
