Protesting Alt-Right Demonstrations

The question of whether to respond to alt-right demonstrations or to ignore them is a difficult one. A number of years ago, the Aryan Nations group established a compound in Hayden, Idaho, and their members applied for permits to hold parades in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. My recollection is that the citizens of Coeur d'Alene, who were horrified by this movement, debated their response at length. For one parade, protesters showed up and, I think, outnumbered the marchers. For another parade, I believe they decided to ignore these people.

muslim man killing white woman

Hi Thom, I just wanted to point out that here in Minneapolis, a muslim man did just kill a white woman (Mohamed Noor murdered Justine Damond) and trump didn't mention anything about that - but that's 'cause the murderer was a cop, and that seems to be ok. Nor did trump mention the bombing of the mosque here a few days ago. sad

We need a State Bigotry Index now: YOU can help.

We need another measuring stick that identifies states that display or facilitate bigoted, discriminatory behavior. States could be ranked from 1 to 50. I suspect that this may be an incentive to do something about it. What are the criteria by which the rankings would be determined? Here are a few suggestions to start with. Feel free to add your own

Trump lifts his leg on another defector: Breaking up is hard to do……..

You don’t leave him without getting insulted on the way out the door. Like a jilted lover, he will be sure to try to hit you in the ass with the screen door on your way out. So goes the story with Ken Frazier, the Merk CEO who decided to abandon ship on the*president’s manufacturing council, after the latest fumble of Charlottesville.

Take this Ken, from the Tweetie in Chief:

“Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!”

Inspection- Trump Can't Take It

As my radio pukes out more Trump threats to have Hillary investigated again I realize how easy Trump makes it to recognize that classic bully distraction tactic: "Look over there!" Of course, being Trump, the tactic is delivered via his trademark mob mentality, flavored with threats bordering on, "You will stop or we'll put cement shoes on someone in your family." Of course that ignores that there are many demanding the investigation continue who might even welcome Clinton in handcuffs at the same

Trump; despair, dishonest, and fraud, THE REAL FAKE

In his life; pre or post political career, when he is given a situation or subject to comment or act on, He then very planned and purposely points out the weakness for failure or will be failure. It's the oldest trick in the book; showing an image of such despair that one feels forced to reward him with the repair.

Cherry Picking the Intelligence Reports

It has been noted that the only intelligence agency reporting the miniaturization of North Korea's nuclear bombs, which makes the bomb capable of being carried on a missile, is the Defense Intelligence Agency. The other intelligence agencies of this country have not corroborated this report. The DIA made this claim several years ago as well, and it was ultimately discredited. Nonetheless, President Trump has used this report to draw the world dangerously closer to a nuclear confrontation. The question is, why does he give credence to this one report and yet

We have OUR share of CRAZY RIGHT WINGERS up here

Frustrated by our CBC (Canadian Broadcasting) blog site comment section being punctuated by right wing baloney, misguided , misinformed low information bloggers parroting right wing misinformation they've been taught by right wing propaganda sites like FOX news ,I just couldn't take it anymore and posted this comment chastising Canada's misinformed. Canadians who are by almost any standard are spoiled.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

" We hug each other a little tighter': Tense times in Guam after North Korea missile threat" We've seen this war propaganda coming from the west before, especially the US.

This GUAM nonsense, these so called quotes of terror by those living there , is nothing short of deliberate inflammatory war mongering by the Americans and their propaganda right wing controlled media.

WHY is it EVERY TIME these right winger get in power , there has to be another war, another mass killing .

Voter suppression

Hillary Clinton should file a lawsuit against voter suppression.

Also the DNC should do the same.

Liberal/Progressive

Liberal/Progressives could be characterized as practical and reasonable.

There's a 1 in 20 Chance of the Apocalypse. Shouldn't We Act Now?

A new study published in Science argues that we as a civilization need to move "rapidly" -- as in almost immediately -- towards a carbon emissions free future if we are to have any chance of holding off runaway global warming:
