Question to the GOP Trump defenders: Who the fuck is going to investigate the DoJ?

These assholes are ridiculous.

It's time to start up the RNC Convention Death Watch...

AS you all know, the date and location for the 2020 RNC Convention has yet to be announced. That's because no respectable city in this country wants to endure the gawdawful mess that it will surely be... Trump? MAGAheads? NEO-nazzies? General fucking RWNJ morons? Who NEEDS any of that shit?

At this point, they'll be lucky to run a convention at all... Hence, the RNC Convention Death Watch!

Going by the start date of the 2016 RNC, 18 Jul 2016, from today the count is theoretically 789 days until a proposed 2020 convention date.

I propose that this thread be used as RNC Convention Death Watch Central, updated on a daily basis, until some unfortunate burg gets hoodwinked into hosting the greatest shit show ever beheld by mankind.

(By the way, if any of you guys out there know how embed a countdown timer in a DU post, I'd really appreciate it if you'd show me how to do that.)

The cops were called to a premier horse racing event to arrest an African American who was just doing his job but apparently made a White person feel nervous.

Photographer Arturo Holmes was covering the 2018 Preakness Stakes in Baltimore on Saturday. Even though Holmes had proper credential, he was racially profiled.

Here’s what photojournalist J.M. Giordano witnessed:

Hobby Lobby Employees Call Police on Black Customer Who Looked ‘Somewhat Like’ a Crime Suspect

By Tanasia Kenney -May 19, 2018

An Alabama man says he was racially profiled at a Hobby Lobby store in Trussville this week after an employee called the cops on him while he tried to make a return.

Brian Spurlock said the incident unfolded Tuesday, when he went to return his girlfriend’s recently-purchased vinyl machine, which he claimed was broken. Despite having a receipt for the item, a store manager refused to refund Spurlock his money because the item was already opened.

“I said, ‘Is there somebody else I can talk to that can assist me with this?’ She said ‘yeah wait,'” Spurlock told local station ABC 33|40. The manager then asked for his ID and said she was calling corporate. Minutes later, the police showed up instead.

Apparently, employees mistook the Alabama man for a suspect they say had written bad checks and was returning stolen items to the store. The cops arrived and asked Spurlock for his ID but he balked, asking why they needed to see it. That’s when officers informed him he’d be charged with trespass if he didn’t hand it over.

"White people in North America live in a social environment that protects and insulates them from race-based stress. This insulated environment of racial protection builds white expectations for racial comfort while at the same time lowering the ability to tolerate racial stress, leading to what I refer to as White Fragility. White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium."

Did anyone else here already know that Josh Barro is a Clinton hating douchebag?

Because I never realized that until now...

Action Cat In Action....

Selective outage and hypocrisy go hand in hand with GOPrs.

I wouldn't be surprised if dogs paid for the study...

Two Words...
