Your GOP And A Developing Social Nightmare (VIDEO)

...absolutely reprehensible cryptofascist drivel and dehumanizing xenophobia... The Washington Press

Watch and listen as the GOP's number of elected (Congressional) racists spews Nazi venom on Fox Business.

If you are a High Information Voter (HIV) you know King's core beliefs regarding what he calls 'western civilization' (culture).  If you happened to be more of a LIV (Low Information voter) you probably missed this remark during the GOP RNC Conference.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes shockingly and ineptly allowed King to spew his brand of white supremacy and without malice, stopped other show guests from taking the racist to task nor allowing any form of guest or personal retort. Hayes later admitted a high degree of shock regarding King's comment and further stated he was professionally remiss via forbidding any response to the over-the-top racism.

While MSNBC producers and managers must have known of King's affinity for white supremacy and his associated tendency to speak as such, he was booked on the segment without regard for his history ad dogma.  

And how did Fox News management react to Kings Anti-Semite fooder for its viewers?  Two very short clips; one for reference and the other a 17-second response within an hour of King's Fox Business audience feeding.

Conservatives who go public with their core paradigm biases seem to appeal to the lowest denominator of human culture while offering titillation to the nation's racist underbelly. 

We offer another well-known xenophobe who consistently feeds LIVs with insane and seemingly contrived (for pay) fodder to their viewers and listeners.  

Says Ann Coulter said, "I am a settler. I am descended from settlers — not from immigrants."
Bloggers on Monday, December 3rd, 2018 in a Facebook post

See Politifacts, here.

Imagine that! Is it actually possible Ann Coulter believes such tadpole pool shallow rhetoric? I suggest not.

Coulter is practicing that time proven and critical aspect of business and outreach to customers. "Give the customer what she/he wants." Conservative America isn't a population base which truly believes in the GOP and conservative demagogues based on the long-standing lie about fiscal conservatism. No, I posit the vast majority of American conservatives are socially biased and by living in that mindset offers a storing foundation for growing white supremacy and overt racism which is oozing across the US.

Example, Fox News isn't a historic leader among evening news related broadcast because of Hannity, the former host O'Reilly, Carlson and their cadres of social degenerate guests pepper their viewers with the discussion of economic news or fiscal conservatism. They entertain their viewers with dogma regarding the Left mixed with an abundance of overt and covert bias (maybe even subliminally) lathered-up with an animus against nonwhites. 

If you actually believe your relatives, friends, and neighbors religiously vote for the GOP based on their love of country, concern with the federal budget or vote based in faith in their assumed religion, you should possibly think a bit more.  I offer they are socially biased in their everyday lives while serving as a safe and dedicated political base for much more sinister undercurrents in the US.

Ann Coulter Leads The White Nationalist Charge After the Paris Terrorist Attacks (Trump Supporter)

Coulter AfterParis Attacks: ‘Trump Was Elected President Tonight’- Ann Coulter

Immediately after the tragic terrorist attack in Paris France, conservatives got busy like flies on a jar of honey blaming President Obama, railing about nuking the entirety of Islamic life and spewing other gyrations of racism. Ann Coulter, as usual, took up the top cheerleader spot (bones and all) with a racist affiliation and lauding of one Donald "Regress America Please" Trump.

Coulter's racism is embed in the AddictingInfo piece that follows. I find it interesting Coulter never speaks such language after all too frequent cases of racist attacks against African-Americans.  

AUTHOR NOVEMBER 14, 2015 11:15 AM
For most of the world, Friday night’s terror in Paris was agonizing and traumatic. On social media, people began organizing blood drives, arranging for shelter for those caught in danger, and millions tweeting things like “Nous sommes tous Parisiens” – we are all Parisians. President Obama expressed a similar sentiment in his address following the attacks. 
“Once again, we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians,” he said. “This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.” 
Not everyone was feeling the spirit of shared humanity, however. Conservative pundits spent the night shamelessly exploiting the tragedy to further their talking points. And whenever there is an opportunity to “shamelessly exploit a tragedy,” Ann Coulter can’t be far behind. Sure enough, it took her no time at all to come up with obnoxious talking points and hurl hateful xenophobia – even while the attacks were still happening.
ANGER? We can't even deport 3rd world pouring in, committing murder, child rape, Ft Hood, 9/11 etc. It's not "adult" 
— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015 
Every year, the US imports 100K more Muslims to live here permanently. Rubio says he wants more. Why would anyone support him?— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015 
Can we all agree now? No more Muslim immigration. How is this making life better for us? But the mass immigration machine churns on …— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015 
What's the upside of letting millions of Muslims migrate to western countries?— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015
Needless to say, she couldn’t be bothered to spare a moment for the victims. She had an ax to grind.
Why does NO ONE say the obvious thing on TV?! It's insane. Don't want terrorism in US? Stop importing Muslims!— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015
In the hours that followed, reports confirmed that the radical Islamist group known as ISIS were taking credit for the attacks. So far it is unknown who the perpetrators were or where they came from. (Statements from ISIS simply call them “brothers” fighting the “Crusaders” in France.) There is absolutely no indication that they were among the group of refugees fleeing violence and starvation in Syria. In fact, as some observers dryly noted, those very same refugees are running from ISIS. For them, the attack on Paris is an all-too-common occurrence, that’s why they are leaving their homes! 
To people blaming refugees for attacks in Paris tonight. Do you not realise these are the people the refugees are trying to run away from..? — Dan Holloway (@RFCdan) November 13, 2015
But most embarrassingly of all, Coulter used the deaths of over 100 people to breathlessly plug her favorite Republican candidate: Donald Trump.
They can wait if they like until next November for the actual balloting, but Donald Trump was elected president tonight.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 14, 2015
Trump has been at the forefront of idiotic statements about foreign policy regarding the Middle East and therefore won over Coulter’s heart (or what passes for it). It consists of assuring his fans that he would “bomb the shit out of ISIS.” He doesn’t expand on it further other than to say he plans on making money after he kills everyone.
“ISIS is making a tremendous amount of money because they have certain oil camps, certain areas of oil that they took away,” Trump said. “They have some in Syria, some in Iraq. I would bomb the (expletive deleted) out of ’em. I would just bomb those suckers. That’s right. I’d blow up the pipes. … I’d blow up every single inch. There would be nothing left.
“And you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there and in two months, you ever see these guys, how good they are, the great oil companies? They’ll rebuild that sucker, brand new — it’ll be beautiful.”
Occupying a Middle Eastern country to take their oil reserves… what could go wrong?
Feel free to bookmark this page to refer back to when Trump’s campaign blows up in his face. Something tells me we won’t have to wait until next November to see it happen. After all, when has Ann Coulter ever been right?

If you think of dismissing Coulter as a noted conservative racist, thus relegating the comments to something of a one-off rant, think again. Trump is receiving support from the most disgusting among Americans: White Supremacist and White Nationalist. 

This past August, Buzzfeed ran a piece with the following headline:

David Duke On Trump: He’s “Certainly The Best Of The Lot” Running For President
 “I think he understands the real sentiment of America.”

After Donald Trump lauded Dwight Eisenhower's deportation of over one million people back to Mexico, Operation Wetback, Trumps racist army again raised its ugly head.

White Supremacists Are Thrilled Donald Trump Mentioned “Operation Wetback”

“This represents a milestone in the immigration debate.”

We realize that current conservatives poll takers do not give a damn about such reports. To be fair, we do not expect better from conservative America. Our efforts relate more to informing opened minded Americans who know America is not a nation void of people of color.  Thus, we as "good" liberals and progressives are about the business of reaching people who may take offense to a presidential candidate who so obviously courts American racist and one who is riding a tide of white privilege common to white supremacists and those who wish to extricate non-whites from the greater society.  If you think the last sentence is a bit harsh and doesn't represent your support for Trump (can company), ask yourself have you done your part in eliminating voter suppression; " ....extricate non-whites from the greater society."

You answer may reveal you as an "enabler."

The Daily GOP Ignominious: GOP 2016: Debate Fade, Trump Racism and Bigotry, Ann Coulter's Utter Disgust

We will start with piece with a couple of short visits on matters emanating from the recent GOP Debate. Bernie Sanders responded to question about his perception of parts of the debate  and we visit with debate stage lies about the Iran Nuclear Deal.

The Evolving Uncloaking of the Underbelly of Racism and Bigotry that affixes with Trump

Do you recall after the resounding congressional defeats of the 2012 mid-term elections RNC Chair, Reince Priebus, proclaiming a need to perform an autopsy of what went wrong? The autopsy (more aptly referred to as a lobotomy, since an autopsy denotes after death medical examiner procedures) was completed in 2013 with much fanfare from the RNC chair. ABC News reported in march 2013 as follows: (Highlights via The Pardu)

The report, called the "Growth and Opportunity Project," lays out an extensive plan the RNC believes will lead the party to victory with an extensive outreach to women, African-American, Asian, Hispanic and gay voters. Among the plans: hiring paid outreach staffers across the country in a $10 million push that begins right away; backing "comprehensive immigration reform"; abbreviating the presidential primary process with fewer debates, specifically saying the party would like at least half the 20 there were during the 2012 cycle; and moving the convention to June or July, as well as improving the data and digital effort. 
Priebus noted that the party's policies are fundamentally sound but require a softer tone and broader outreach, include a stronger push for African-American, Latino, Asian, women and gay voters. 
"To be clear, our principles our sound, our principles are not old rusty thoughts in some book," Priebus said, but the "report notes the way we communicate our principles isn't resonating widely enough." 
Priebus added: "I think our policies are sound, but I think in many ways the way we communicate can be a real problem." 
The report also specifically states that there needs to be more inclusion. "We need to campaign among Hispanic, black, Asian, and gay Americans and demonstrate we care about them, too. We must recruit more candidates who come from minority communities. But it is not just tone that counts. Policy always matters."

In just a little of two years post the Growth and Opportunity Project the GOP and conservative American have flushed Priebus naivety and false promise down the proverbial drain.  In Mid-June now front running candidate for the GOP 2016 nomination went here (The epitome of the time warn GOP southern strategy):  Trump went full racist.

From his June staking of his turf on behalf of the GOP in August we find this (eight seconds): Dallas rally with "White Power."

As David Duke has indicate support for Trump, we now move to this shameful act at Trumps afternoon rally. It should be noted Trump exemplified the level of class, I personal expect from a  GOP candidate and that level is nil.

Trump Townhall seething with conspiracy nuts, racists and Trump agrees with each vile remark.

Take a minute sixteen seconds and listen to complete and total validation of the GOP as the party of American racism and bigotry.

The session with a bit of opining from MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Hardball, and guests.

If you want to see a typical conservative racism, level it to Ann Coulter to deliver.

Ann Coulter Joins Pat Buchanan As A Purveyor Of White Nationalism (Racism)

A decade after the end of the Civil War, a veteran of the Confederate States of America examines a Union water bottle in front of a Confederate flag in 1875. Here's a look at the evolution of that flag:

Dixiecrats resurfaced the "Southern Cross" flag as a political symbol around the time President Harry Truman supported efforts to end lynchings and desegregate the military in 1948. During that same period, the Ku Klux Klan began using the flag more widely.

Often conservatives and some progressives for different reasons seek to deny that racism and skin color bias is no longer an issue in America. Some conservatives are so dogmatic in their promulgation of nationalism based in race, it is literally impossible to separate their actions and words from white nationalist like Pat Buchanan.
Google definition:
  1. White nationalism is an ideology that advocates a racial definition of national identity for white people. White nationalism ranges from a preference for one's ethnic group, to feelings of superiority to organized forms of white  supremacism.
Actually white nationalism is a commonly accepted vernacular for "racism." Watch Buchanan via a Rachel Maddow segment that ran after during the Sotomayor SCOTUS confirmation hearings and after Buchanan openly declared himself a "white nationalist/racist." The segment is close to seven minutes long, but relevant to the individual syllable.

There are Americans who actually deny the reality of melanin bias and skin color as an inducement to racism and racist acts. On another front, there are American conservatives who unabashedly wear their racism and racist views as boldly as their GOP lapel pins.

Let's take a look at the latest and ugliest manifestation of US racism from a well known right wing propagandist and demagogue: Ann Coulter.

The background from the nascent Coulter attack is as follows
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley publicly asked to have the Confederate flag removed from the state capitol grounds. 

The request to start debate on removal of the flag was a bridge too far for Coulter. What happens when people are stretched to the limit of their paradigm. They either assimilate to the new environment (or ideology) or they lash out in futile efforts to enact their agst. Coulter, of course, chose the latter. Watch as Coulter proves (yet again) racism is a core value inherent in some who claim to be American conservatives. Racial intolerance is endemic among conservatives to a far greater degree and validates the racial and ethnic composition of the GOP: 92% white Coulter goes racial on Nikki Haley as an immigrant and not into Americanism. Coulter will say she stated "immigrant;" It doesn't require a leap of imagination to read between the lines and reach beyond Coulters closeted "dog whistle."

Politifact (See below)

Pants on Fire!CoulterSays South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley "is an immigrant."
— Ann Coulter on Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 in comments on Fox Business Network
Media Matters...
But Haley is not an immigrant. As reported by the Washington Post's Phillip Rucker, Haley was born in Bamberg, South Carolina, to Indian immigrant parents (emphasis original):
She's the daughter of Sikh immigrants from India. Haley's parents, Dr. Ajit and Raj Randhawa immigrated from Amritsar to the tiny town of Bamberg, S.C. (population 3,733). Nikki was born there and grew up with a sister, Simran, and two brothers, Mitti and Charan. Mitti was an active-duty officer in the Army for 20 years and fought in Desert Storm. Haley could become only the second Indian-American governor in the country, joining Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R).
Politfact also addressed Coulter's rhetoric. 

Ann Coulter Pants on Fire claim SC Governor Nikki Haley

Coulter is the tip of the iceberg for those on the Right who wear their racism and intolerance as proudly as some relish display of the Confederate flag. As is the case with the Confederate flag, there comes a time when even conservatives should realize the essence of their social paradigm is flawed and runs against the grain of true Americanism. It took the killing of nine innocent church worshippers to push issues with the confederate flag to the forefront of public extinction. What will it take for American conservatives to push overt racism as practiced by the likes of Coulter and Buchanan to the level of extinction?

Ann Coulter Again Visits The "Pig-Pen" ; At The Expense of Kidnapped Children!

Do you recall one of my favorite and most shared parenting lessons?

"When you wallow with a pig, the animal loves you. First, the pig is excited about your wallowing in his (her) pig pen. And now you (also) stink!

 Happy Pig Mud Happy pig wallowing. Happy Pig Mud The pigs are now housed in Happy Pig Mud Happiness is a pig in mud.

I work hard to avoid coverage of Ann Coulter. She is the epitome of Far-Right Wing nut job and one who does great harm to what was once a valid state of conservatism that was core to the GOP. You may even recall that I will provide moderate criticism of the meandering drivel of Sarah Palin, and the fantasy world lies of Michelle Bachmann, the complete idiocy of Allen West and often comment about the chameleon Rand Paul. You do not and will not find many references to Coulter on this webpage. We try to maintain some semblance of decency on the TPI. Coulter coverage would draw us far too close to the pig pen images posted above.

Coulter's nascent visit to the pig pen drew a few noted Right-wing nut jobs and far too many Re-Tweets and Tweeter "Favorites."  Coulter seemed to have taken exception to these images in response to the heinous kidnapping of 276 young girls in Nigeria. 

What is it about the kidnappings in Nigeria could possible proved "pig pen" opportunity for Coulter and friends? What is it about GOP governance could Coulter and friends even remotely relish. We will avoid the list of reasons sane Americans look back at years 2000 - 2008 with much contempt and disdain. The information is readily available and our purpose in the screed is not to rehash information easily secured via a Google search.

Talking Points Memo is reporting Coulter's foray into the pig pen didn't garner the support she so desired. Yes, as stated above a few well known "for hire conservative mouthpieces" joined Coulter in the pen. The usual suspects like Red State's Erick Erickson and Conservative radio host Thomas Purcell (via TPM) joined in the disgust.

How much of a Luddite can Coulter be to fail to realize her message would be Photo-shopped like no other in 2014? The full measure of photo -shopped remakes is available via TPM (liken above). 

I must offer one example that speaks volumes.

There are more via TPM.

What a truly disgusting life is that of Coulter.  

Another one of those parenting lessons, "If the fool keeps his mouth closed, he will never be discovered the fool!"

Do I smell a pig pen?

"..Women’s vote is bad for the country!" Tea Party Leader Janis Lane

Re-Blog from Addictinginfo Dot Org

This Tea Party Woman Says Women Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Vote

AUTHOR MARCH 3, 2014 6:58 PM
Janis Lane, female head of MS Tea Party, doesn't want women to vote.
Janis Lane, the president of a Tea Party group in Mississippi, thinks women shouldn’t vote, despite benefiting from the women’s vote herself. Photo of Janis Lane by Virginia Schreiber via the Jackson Free Press.

Mississippi Tea Party leader Janis Lane thinks the women’s vote is bad for the country. And yes, Janis Lane is a woman herself, who benefits from the women’s vote. After being asked whether she thought there were too many male politicians deciding women’s issues back in 2012, she said:

“I’m really going to set you back here. Probably the biggest turn we ever made was when the women got the right to vote. Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how than can skewer a person. I do not see that in men. The whole time I worked, I’d much rather have a male boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them.
Because women have the right to vote, I am active, because I want to make sure there is some sanity for women in the political world. It is up to the Christian rednecks and patriots to stand up for our country. Everyone has the right to vote now that’s 18 or over (who is) a legal citizen, and every person that’s 18 and over and a legal citizen should be active in local politics so they can make a change locally, make a change on the state level and make a change in Washington, D.C.”

So, first Janis Lane says women should never have gotten the right to vote. Then she says that she’s active in politics because of the women’s vote. What if we went back to the 19th century on that? She wouldn’t be able to have nearly as much influence politically. She could fight for issues, sure, but she couldn’t see them through at the polls. One has to wonder what she would do if women really did lose the right to vote.

Janis Lane isn’t the only woman to speak out against women.

Janis Lane is not the only woman to voice issues with the women’s vote. Back in 2007, Ann Coulter said that Democrats would never win an election again if women couldn’t vote. She also thought that the Democrats ought to hang their heads in shame for having so much trouble getting men to vote for them.

She has since revised that, saying that not only is the women’s vote bad, but also that liberal women should not be allowed to hold office. Liberal women, according to Coulter, get hysterical, start to cry, and are generally just too fragile to have a discussion with. This is about the same as what Janis Lane thinks.

So what is the GOP’s official position on the women’s vote?

According to Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP is proud to have been a moving force in securing the women’s vote. The GOP, he says, will continue “to uphold the principle of equal opportunity for all that has guided us from the very beginning. And as we celebrate the women of our party and country this month, we continue our fight for equal opportunity.”

Janis Lane, however, likely does not agree. She and other so-called “true” Tea Partiers believe there’s just as much of a problem with the GOP as there is with the Democrats. The GOP is not about equality of any sort, and the Tea Party even less so. Equality, for the Tea Party, is a privilege for white men to enjoy. Otherwise Janis Lane (and others) would never think the country would be better off if women couldn’t vote.

With the 2014 elections now less than a year away, it’s time for women to wise up. The Tea Party does not have women’s best interests at heart, as Janis Lane proved a year and a half ago.
