Get over yourselves America: "There Is NO Such Thing As Race"



Trumps simply saying into the microphone what Mitt Romney said should be confined to “quiet rooms.”

That is the world in which Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Tom DeLay, Louis Gohmert, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney all hold hands and sing “cumbayah.”

It isn’t new, Trump isn’t breaking ground, he’s simply saying into the microphone what Mitt Romney said should be confined to “quiet rooms.”

The conservative pundits who reached for their fainting couches when Trump said the military should disobey orders and torture people were the same ones who cheered the loudest when Dick Cheney defended torture under the term “enhanced interrogation.” They were the ones who nodded in agreement or at best sat on their hands when Rush Limbaugh described the torture at Abu Ghraib as a “blowing off steam.”

The right wingers who howled as conservative financier Foster Friess advocated women put a pill between their knees as contraception want us to believe they are shocked and appalled when Trump makes crude remarks about menstrual blood or made remarks about Carly Fiorina’s attractiveness?

Who are they trying to fool?

The Debate of Dicks - Donald Trump's was just the beginning.

The Debate of Dicks
Donald Trump's was just the beginning.

Just so we're all on the same page as we begin to discuss what happened in Detroit last night, and to establish the proper mood for that discussion, here are some Klansmen on a Ferris wheel:



...........

.....there isn't enough laudanum in the world to erase entirely the memory of how He, Trump discussed the strength of Little Donald in a debate between what were alleged to be the Republican candidates for president. And I will grant you that representative democracy may never recover from the ensuing ass-biting competition between a big bag of feathers, a Tailgunner, a vulgar talking yam, and John Kasich, who hasn't yet noticed that he's the principal barker on a carnival midway.

..................................


Torture. Trump steaks. All the rest of it has degenerated into white noise in the brain, but these moments remain as clear as a summer's day. The prion disease has finally reached the higher centers of the Republican brain. They'll be eating bugs by the time the convention rolls around.

Police confirm Trump campaign wanted peaceful black students kicked out of rally

“A member of the (Trump) event staff approached a member of our agency and requested that the group be asked to leave,” Capt. Stryde Jones, a Lowndes County Sheriff’s officer, told the network.

Another member of local law enforcement who worked the event backed up Jones’ account.

“I spoke to a Trump staffer, whose name I do not have, she told us that they needed to leave,” Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress told MSNBC. “Not only did I talk to a Trump staffer, so did the University police, and we were told over the radio by the Sheriff’s office that Trump staff wanted them out

Making America Hate Again

White Nationalist Show's Syndicator Threatens To Release Emails Proving Trump Camp Lied

White Nationalist Show's Syndicator Threatens To Release Emails Proving Trump Camp Lied About Interview
Syndicator: "The Trump Campaign Through Their Booking Agency ... Absolutely Invited James To Do The Interview"


Bushman is now claiming the Trump campaign is lying about their interactions and is threatening to release "emails" proving it.

On his March 3 show, Bushman claimed that in his email reply to Trump's booking agency, he wrote "this is Sam Bushman, I own Liberty News Radio, that's the nationally syndicated radio network, James has a show on my network called The Political Cesspool, he went to your rally, was credentialed at your rally, you reached out to James with your email, and I'm responding back and saying that James can't do the interview because he has a weekend show, but I would love to do the interview."

Bushman then added: "The Trump campaign reached out through their booking agency, though. Remember that fact. The Trump campaign reached out to James to do a radio interview via their booking agency."

Bushman says he responded to the agency making clear they wanted to do the interview and cc'd Edwards.

He continued, "I called James and said 'James, do you want to be on with us?' And the reason I did is because this all came through James. It was James' media credentials that they had approved. James was the one that attended the rally. They were the ones that reached out -- meaning the Trump campaign through their booking agency -- and absolutely invited James to do the interview."

Bushman claimed "people are kind of hinting" they don't want him to re-air the interview, and he said he would "drag out every email" about the interview if the Trump campaign doesn't stop the "lies":

BUSHMAN: The interview was incredible; we talked about all kinds of good things. In fact, we're going to play the interview back so you can hear it. OK, people are kind of hinting they don't want us to play it back. I don't take directions very well from these thugs. I don't appreciate their lies and abuse and manipulation and game playing. OK, so I'm just going to tell you the story straight and if they want to debate it, we'll take that sucker on CNN and drag out every email and every little tidbit and tit-for-tat and this whole thing, because we will slaughter them, including the Trump campaign if they don't stop. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not taking on the Trump campaign. I'm just telling you that we're not going to tolerate lies and game playing.

By a show of hands, how many of you thought this helped the Republican party, what they saw tonight across the country? Raise your hands if it helped the GOP. None of you. So what is the problem?
