Nazis, Neo-Confederates and Roy Moore......oh my!!!!!

Roy Moore’s Foundation Cashed At Least One Check From Actual Nazis.

A Huffington Post review of tax documents has found that the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment, a fascist organization formed by infamous Holocaust-denier Willis Carto, donated $1000 to the Foundation for Moral Law in 2005.

The Foundation for Moral Law is the successor to a defense fund set up for former Alabama chief justice Roy Moore. Ostensibly created to pursue a culture war agenda through the courts, IRS records show that the “charity” employs Moore’s entire family and has provided him with more than $1 million in personal income.

Pat Shannan, an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist who served on the board of FDFA in 2005, recently endorsed Moore in a fawning blog post that described him as “our ideal Alt-South candidate.”

Of course, Moore received a six-figure income from his foundation over six years while repeatedly claiming that he did not get a “regular salary,” so it would be more accurate to call him ‘an Alabama con artist’ and a ‘slimy, calculating, self-interested, insincere American.’

Carto’s organization is hardly the only example of racists and hate groups donating to Moore’s foundation. Their single largest donor is neoconfederate Michael Peroutka, a former board member of the League of the South. Moore’s foundation has hosted the group’s Secession Day events before.

Why, oh why isn't the media screaming about this?!?!?

I haven't received any such emails and I'm an Our Revolution member.

May I point out that Our Revolution candidates won in 2016 and 2017; Our Revolution also supported local and state resolutions that won in both years.

If you want to keep the Blue Wave going, expelling Our Revolution members from the party would be counterproductive. (Yes, some of them are independents or Third Party; but, most are still Democrats.)

Actually, the largest number of 2017 victories were by progressive candidates

Why Did The Elephant Cross The Road?

It's not a joke. Man Bikes Away From Sprinting Elephant, Realizes What’s Happening When Elephant Beckons To Woods:



Just like that, the elephant starts charging the biker!




Fortunately, the biker escapes before anything happens—but the elephant seems to have another motive.

Once the biker has been chased off, the elephant does an about-face and turns to face the oncoming traffic. There are at least three to four cars coming, though upon seeing the massive obstacle in the road, they all do the smart thing and stop.

Seeing that they aren’t coming closer, the elephant takes a few cautious steps forward.




What happens next is both hilarious and adorable.

Once the coast is clear, the elephant gestures into the brush—and out follows his entire family! With his safe guidance, the elephant guides the mother and two children safely across the road without harm to anyone. As it turns out, the biker was just a distraction to the elephant’s larger goal.

Who knew that nature footage like this could come with its own plot twist?




Aside from being the cutest thing ever, this story teaches us to be more aware and understanding.

Though elephants are understandably intimidating creatures, they are also beautiful and empathetic animals that have been forced to live in communities with people in many areas. They have families and normal needs of their own, even if we can’t always understand their actions.

Because everyone in the clip was aware, nobody got hurt and the elephants made it safely across the road.


How can anyone be proud of killing one of these beautiful and intelligent creatures? We all remember that horrible picture of the Spawn of Trump proudly holding up the tail of an elephant he killed.
