"Don't Blame Trump"

I Never Thought I'd Say This, But...


I didn't care for Bush II, but my dislike for him wasn't nearly as intense as with Trump aka. Toupée Fiasco. Not only does Toupée Fiasco lie about his opposition and his agenda, but he is rude, perverted, under-qualified, doesn't respect women or non-White Americans, doesn't release his tax returns like his predecessors did, and he defends an anti-American communist (Putin). I can't think of any redeeming qualities he has.

"Hail Trump? White nationalists already losing faith in President-elect"

The alt-right is having a falling out -- in some ways with their President-elect, but in perhaps even more instances with each other.

And it comes on the eve of an alt-right inaugural celebration called the DeploraBall -- a play off of Hillary Clinton's "basket of deplorables" campaign remark.
Look no further than the white nationalist who coined the term alt-right, Richard Spencer. He's the same man who stood at a podium shortly after Donald Trump's election and, in a video that went viral, shouted "Hail Trump!" while several in the crowd celebrated the victory with a Nazi salute.
But listen to him now, you'll notice a marked shift in tone when speaking of the man who will become the 45th President of the United States.

"Its No Surprise The Racist Electoral College Elected A Racist (Again)"

Welp! December 19th marked the beginning of the end, as the Electoral College made it official and elected Donald Trump as our next Commander-in-Chief, once again confirming to me that the Electoral College ain’t worth nan and it ain’t 👏🏾 never 👏🏾 gone 👏🏾 be 👏🏾 worth 👏🏾 nan.

Another tradition that America knows has long outlived its purpose, the Electoral College’s very existence has been hotly debated for years. It didn’t come about until 1787, and the official high-school-history-book reason it was put in place was because our founding fathers frankly thought the people were too stupid to be trusted with the presidency. No really, it was a “compromise between whether the people should elect the president or whether Congress should.”

But a glimpse behind the curtain reveals another deep dark secret reason for its existence: racism.

The system utilized the “three-fifths compromise,” which counted slaves as three-fifths of a person, to give more voting power to slave owners and pro-slavery states. In 1787, James Madison—so-called “Father of the Constitution”—gave a speech in which he said that, with a popular vote, the slave-holding Southern states “could have no influence in the election on the score of Negroes.” Back then, this unjust system helped America elect Thomas Jefferson, who owned more than 100 slaves, instead of John Adams, who was opposed to slavery.

"That's How It Works."

Pro-lifers...where are you?
