He’s trying to distance himself from his own all-white rally.

So the question for Trump supporters who post here – do you agree that the chant “send her back” is racist?  Because apparently Trump does, if you’re believing what he’s saying this morning.

And if you believe him, why is it racist now and not when he tweeted it a few days ago?

My guest on All Things Reconsidered tonight will be Lynn Silver – pro-immigrant border activist in New Mexico. She will provide some history and a first hand account of events along the border and what she and other allies/activists are trying to do at ground zero.  7:00 as always.
From Lynn:
“A little history about me. I was born into a fundamentalist family, raised in Montgomery, Alabama, and my dad was a drill sergeant in the Air Force. He was also a member of the White Citizens Council and a friend of George Wallace. Bull Conner, at one time, lived down the street. I witnessed the Freedom Riders getting beaten up and left for dead at the Greyhound Bus Station. I witnessed the burning of cars around a church where Dr. King was speaking. That was the same time President Kennedy declared marshal law in Montgomery. Years later when I was an adult and saw the atrocities of the Vietnam War, it all kicked in. I happen to be working at the Pentagon. Needless to say, those events laid the groundwork for my activism and work. Since I have retired, that is what I do best!. And since a lot of the children’s prisons are essentially “in my backyard”, I cannot stay quiet. Actually Tornillo is a 9 hour drive, but Carrizo Springs is only 1 1/2 hour drive. Thank you for helping get the truth out about what is really going on.”
Side note – Lynn was also very close to the recently lost longtime KMUD figure Bruce Brady. We will all miss him dearly.

Here’s my screenshot of the current Redheaded Blackbelt home page.  Note that there are three stories on the right column entitled “crime.”  Note that of four suspects shown in photographs of this page three of them are white as snow.  Note that the fourth is not.

Now note that there are 3 comments attached to one story; 10 comments attached to another story; and 83 comments attacked to the third.

Note the skin color of the person photographed in that third story.  Now go to those comments (84 now, 1 added since I took the screenshot).   Note the very first comment:  “I really wish I could say the obvious.”  And what follows is a long discussion about his skin color and it’s supposed relationship to the crime alleged.

So far in the other two stories, no discussion of their skin color.  And no, their crimes are no less serious.  Both involve violence or threat thereof.

As there are no Latinos photoed in the stories, there is no discussion today about how they’re protected by Sanctuary (usually by people who have no idea what Sanctuary even means) or how we need a wall.

This folks is collective racism.

No criticism of Kym at all.  Her stories are fine.  But this is the climate in which we live.  This is why dog whistle politics work.  This is why the country is divided.

As you all know, I have my differences with the Sheriff with regard to his opposition to Sanctuary policies and some of the rhetoric, but clearly he’s principled.  Also makes me wonder if he’s had run-ins with HR that he can’t talk about.

Auditor-Controller Karen Paz Dominguez posted the following on her Facebook Page.

I received the most wonderful gesture of collaboration and teamwork from our Sheriff and his CFO. I feel so humbled and blessed by the recognition and I had to pinch myself a couple times to believe it. I am very grateful and feel re-energized to keep working for the public’s interest.

Ryan Burns has the story at Lost Coast Outpost.

All morning I’ve been receiving robocalls from the Department of Social Security, telling me that my social security number has been “suspended due to suspicious activity.”

Does this mean I don’t have to pay taxes?

He basically said that the freshman four Nancy Pelosi attacked earlier in the week all come from a country where the government is “a catastrophe.”

According to NBC:

“Tlaib, a Palestinian American, was born in Michigan; Omar, a Somali refugee, moved to the U.S. when she was 12 and is a naturalized U.S. citizen; Ocasio-Cortez, who is of Latin-American descent, was born in New York; and Pressley, who is African American, was born in Cincinnati.”

So stop with the TDS already!

Serious note – Pelosi opened this up.  She owes the four women an apology and she really should stick up for them now.

 

He’ a great guy and an excellent DJ.  He’s giving up a lot to run for the office – more than most candidates have to sacrifice.  Very smart guy.

Definitely not a politician.

Of course my first negative thought is that he might win, and we would lose Motown Mondays!  Can anyone replace him for Motown Mondays?

Lost Coast Outpost has the story.

It turns out that the head of the Border Patrol was also a member of that secret Facebook group.

I mean was Acosta really told to lay off because Epstein was involved in intelligence?

Or does he have dirt on powerful people?
