How inspiring that after 15 years of Steve King making bigoted comments abt Jews, African Americans, Latinos, the 1st black POTUS, poor ppl, Muslims, LGBT; plus celebrating confederacy, comparing immigrants to animals & retweeting Nazis, the @GOP is gonna nip this in the bud.

Florida commissioner: Rep. Rashida Tlaib might 'blow up' Capitol, has 'no place in government'

"A Hamas-loving anti-Semite has NO place in government! She is a danger and would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill," Annabelle Lima-Taub wrote on her personal Facebook page, according to a screen grab.

Oh, the diversity of American Women in power is something that some misogynist bigots don't want to accept--

But they might as well get used to it.

Second lady Karen Pence will teach art part time at a Christian school in the Washington suburbs that does not allow gay students, parents or employees to be part of its community

Just for fun, please replace those:

ALERT: The right is spreading a false claim that @IlhanMN accused #LindseyGraham of being compromised because of his sexual orientation.

Video posted online captures the unsettling incident in Washington, D.C., after a group of teens surrounds Nathan Phillips, mocking and harassing him as he sang the American Indian Movement song on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Phillips served in the Vietnam War and is the former director of the Native Youth Alliance, according to Indian Country Today.

 

One teen, in particular, is seen blocking Philips, smugly staring at the elder as he performs his song. Teens in the background appear to encourage the harassment.

Users on social media identified the teens as likely being students from Covington Catholic school in Kentucky because of the insignia on some of their clothing.
