Re: “Trump and the white supremacists: Watch your smugness, resistance

When someone relies on a source like http://Twitchy.com, run by the virulent and conservative racist Michelle Malkin, then slime removal is needed to deal with this person. Here's RationalWiki on this nasty person:

Michelle Malkin (born 1970) is a particularly vile far-right US political pundit. And to merit the qualification "particularly vile" in the august company of Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage is truly awe-inspiring.
She stands out for openly defending Japanese American internment during World War II, and implying that Muslim civilians should be similarly locked up for the duration of the War on Terror (so basically until the Republican Party unanimously decides that Muslims are okay). She's also a proponent of torture, and demonizes her opponents at almost every opportunity, often for no particular reason.
Being a woman, she's usually the go-to alternative to Ann Coulter. Being Asian, (i.e., not white), she's often used to shield American conservative punditry from accusations of racism (regardless of the ironic fact that Malkin's a flaming racist herself).

Malkin has a history of bizarre, unhinged and outright anti-social behavior. The term psychopath comes to mind....

Political pundit Wonkette skewered Malkin with this piece:

You're siding with the Nazis and white supremacists, Baker. Scum seeks its own kind.

Re: “Tuesday's open line, plus the news roundup

To DBI:

Even with love and friends abounding
It's still a ritual confounding:
What is the need to know your age
When your wisdom and humor
are still the rage?
So, through laughter and joyful tears
Count your blessings
...but not your years.

Re: “Tuesday's open line, plus the news roundup

To those who believe in white supremacy and to those who support them, I have this message:
Do NOT defend white nationalists and white supremacists; do NOT defend their beliefs or actions. That is defending evil and I do NOT accept kindly your offer of this terrible poison if you do so.
By the lights of the reasoning used by these white supremacists and neo-nazis et al, and their craven defenders, they must think Hitler and his henchmen are fine human beings. Same ideas, same beliefs, same attitudes. Racial purity justifies inequality, Holocausts, genocides, etc. The old "ends justifies the means" argument writ in hatred and blood. Purifying means cleansing means final solution means murder.
Don't even dare point your cowardly fingers at those of us standing up against such danger, such darkness, such evil.

Hey goofball -- who was a traitor to his country: Jefferson or Lee?

Re: “The post-Charlottesville open line

See The Nation article with the headline:

Trump Blamed the Violence in Charlottesville On Many Sides. Republicans Must Reject That.
Members of the GOP have a duty to condemn a Republican president who had done everything in his power to divide the country.
By John Nichols

https://www.thenation.com/article/trump-bl…

Excerpt:

".....to equate the champions of equal justice under law with the vile racists who march beneath the banners of slaveholders and segregationists is beyond defense.

At a moment when the country needed a president to speak with moral authority, Trump failed the test. Miserably."
