An Iowa woman was charged with attempted murder after running over a 14-year-old girl, saying she did so because the teenager "was a Mexican," police say
 

The 14 year- old girl was walking on a sidewalk to attend a basketball game at a Junior High School when the white Iowan woman reportedly ran her car up on the sidewalk to run down the girl.

It’s hard to envision a benign reason for doing this. It sends a signal that’s hard to miss.

Giuliani went off on fed prosecutors in an unhinged, Bloody Mary-fueled interview in NY Mag, where he fell into a wall.
"[They're] a**holes if they’re investigating me.”
"I know how not to commit crimes.”
“I’m more of a Jew than Soros,” he ranted.

I find Rudy Giuliani saying that “he’s more of a Jew than Holocaust survivor George Soros” pretty antisemitic and gross.

The irony is that while Rudy is spewing this venom, Trump was a business partner with George Soros in Trump Chicago, allegedly still owing Soros $100 million, and Jared is currently partnered with Soros in a couple of business ventures.

Leading figures from the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally are headed to a militia event in Richmond on Monday,
 
with one calling for Democratic lawmakers to be dragged out of the capitol and hung for supporting gun control laws.
 
....... “You should be pulled out of office by the hair on your head, walking down the streets of the capital, walked up to the steps of a swinging rope that’s placed around your neck, because you, sir, are a tyrant and you’re committing treason,” Shoaff said. “And you would be a good example to set for the other elected officials who are doing the same thing.”  ..........
 
:blink:

The Charlottesville white nationalists are back and now they're on their way to Richmond.

The last event had a very positive outcome for race relations.     These trump supporting clowns are only assisting the Dems in the defeat of Trump.

FBI arrests three more members of right wing extremist group

'The Base'

...........Three more alleged members of a US neo-Nazi hate group have been arrested in Georgia, authorities say, in what appears to be a national operation.

The arrests came on the same day that three suspected members of the same group were detained in Maryland and Delaware.

All six men are reported members of white supremacist group The Base..........

According to an arrest warrant from the Floyd County Police Department, the three Georgia men were arrested after an undercover FBI sting operation, and charged with attempted murder and participating in a criminal organisation.

According to arrest affidavits, The Base is a racially motivated violent extremist group that sought to "accelerate the downfall of the United States government, incite a race war and establish a white ethno-state."

Luke Austin Lane, Michael Helterbrand, and Jacob Kaderli were planning to "overthrow the government and murder a Bartow County couple" who they believed to be Antifa members, Floyd County police said in a statement........

More than 8 in 10 black Americans describe Trump as racist: poll

"More than 8 in 10 black Americans believe President Trump is a racist and say the president has made racism a bigger issue in the country, according to a new Washington Post–Ipsos poll published Friday.

The president's approval rating among black Americans was even worse, with 9 in 10 black Americans saying they disapprove of the job he has done as president so far.

The respondents' apprehension over current race relations in the country, however, extends beyond the White House.

While 65 percent of those surveyed said that they feel optimistic about their lives all or most of the time, 65 percent said they think it is a bad time to be black in America, while 77 percent said they believe it is a good time to be white in America...........

Hopefully at least 6 out of those 8 will get out and VOTE in November,   unlike what way too many did in 2016.

But since that last part of the survey still has too many blacks blaming white folks for their plight,  if there isn't a black on the Dem ticket,   they might just call it a wash and sit home.

This Tuskegee Airmen /American Hero veteran from World War II would have been denied entry into Fred trump's rental apartments, which ironically were actually funded by the federal government for veterans.

We know this because the Great American Folk Singer composer of "This Land Is Your Land", Woody Guthrie, actually lived in one of Fred trump's Apartments and wrote a song about Fred trump's discriminatory racism against black World War II veterans.

 As late as the 1970s, trump's apartment complexes were still discriminating against black citizens, as his son Donald trump was running them.

This has been documented by the Nixon Administration who sued the trumps for violating the Fair Housing Act.

 This is the America that the trumps have supported and helped to create-----

Discrimination against black citizens with a Target on the head of black World War II veterans.

 The stench of hypocrisy is all over trump.

I wish a full recovery for Rush Limbaugh but the idea he deserves a medal of freedom is offensive. He's built a radio empire on spreading hate, spewing disinformation and dividing Americans. It cheapens the Medal for every person who earned the distinction. Typical Trump

Barnes & Noble pulls editions of classic novels with people of color on covers http://hill.cm/cgPQrxU

This article would be funny if it wasn't so pathetically stupid and so totally insensitive.

For Black History Month Barnes & Noble has chosen to decorate American and English literature written by white authors with covers illustrating black people.

Perhaps the book seller is not aware that there are many great black writers in the United States and abroad who have written masterpieces of literature which deserve to be featured any month of the year and certainly during February, Black History Month.

When this was pointed out to the book selling company, they pulled their ill-conceived promotion from their stores.

What were they thinking of?

And who were they trying to please?

These are some of the white nationalists who also participated in the Charlottesville riot.

I don't understand why they wear masks--

Are they ashamed of what they are or are they just cowards?

Maybe a little bit of both.....

1,688 polling places closed since 2012 in states previously subject to Voting Rights Act. 750 closed in Texas, which had 6 hour lines last night This is among best evidence I've seen for why Congress needs to restore VRA. House has passed bill but McConnell refuses to hold vote

So It's the 1960s all over again.

Polling places were closed/ discontinued in minority precincts to make it more difficult for the black voters.

In the 1960s black voters were threatened with physical violence in the South if they registered to vote.

Today the powers-that-be will try to make it as hard as possible for these people to vote. 

Comparing a line in an airport, or movie theater, or department store with a line that has been construed to  make it hard for American citizens to vote easily, doesn't make any sense.

 This is truly discrimination against a certain group of Voters.

Nazi flag waved by a man at a Bernie Sanders event sparks outcry

obviously he thought he was at a Trump rally (low information voter)

One of trump's good neo-nazis, like the ones from Charlottesville,  showed up to a Bernie Sanders rally to show his support for anti-Semitism,  racial bigotry and the Holocaust.

The number of hate crimes in the United States have spiked since trump's racist presidency.
