If you are prone to anger, you might want to skip ahead, because I find if difficult to contain the outrage I feel over the vile acts of some Georgia Republicans. They dressed in full Republican regalia, put the Republican flag, the stars and bars, on display and attacked a child’s birthday party.

This is good candidate for "As the Stomach Churns." We have some very sick people in this country who think they are above the law and, given who represents the law in some jurisdictions, they may not be as wrong as they should be/

I am glad I couldn't see the clip, my bp would have shot right off the charts!

How warped and pathetic are their minds that they think it is a good idea for a group of men (and I use the latter word quite wrongly here – no real man would have done such a thing!) to get armed to the teeth, summon up a crowd of like-minded people, and harass, frighten and threaten a child's birthday party! At the very least these are overgrown bullies – and at the worst they are psychopaths. God help us all – and the local police should have arrested them all – starting at the minimum offense of behavior likely to cause a breech of the peace, and anything else they could throw at them. Those 'men' are a danger to all around.

How disgusting and revolting these people are....how can they have that much hate inside and still survive at all?
I suppose I should feel sorry for them but I don't - it's as if the devil is calling his spawn.

Link did not work but when I clicked on: "The occupants then called them n****rs and threatened them with violence" I was directed to the original news item and it worked.
All I can say is that the idiots in the flag waving pickups merely showed what low life, knuckle dragging, primitive, ignorant, hate mongers they are. Just mentally deficient Klown Kar Kukoos.

The Daily Kos article starts with: "I kid you not, it feels like we are going back in time in America. "
As far as racism is concerned, I think that statement is incorrect, America has not advanced much in that area, but has varnished the hatred just a bit more until a decade or so ago. Since then the varnish has worn thin, especially in the red(neck) states and racism is out in the open once more.

These particular disgusting, racist, ammosexual Georgians were fully aware of what they were doing and of the fact that it would be put on video by one or more onlookers. That reminded me eerily of the snapshots of KKK-members and their families posing proudly next to the mutilated and burnt bodies of their victims. The same arrogance, the same pride and why not? Apparently the Douglasville police officers held back the black men and women at this child's birthday party the pickup trucks drove off the property of a black woman. And the same police, with their hands over their ears and eyes claimed they didn't see any laws being broken so the couldn't do anything.

The varnish is getting thinner but at the same time more African-American, and all the other (minority) groups see how unhinged and widespread racism has become. If racists keep being protected on all levels by authorities, black people will take matters in their own hands and though it will not be pretty, they will be joined by many other minorities that feel and are discriminated against.

"Douglasville police officers holding back a group of black men and women as at least seven pickup trucks drive off."

Looks like the police department are also complicit as they did nothing to go after the trucks. What about driving on and damaging private property??

Get this racist symbol off of state grounds everywhere

"I just can’t get my head around such vile, unbridled, Republican hate."

No one can, TC, but the haters. It is why the Republican party is shrinking and has been for more than two decades. It is why they are having such trouble attracting young people to their side of the aisle but for the young brainwashed rich; youth are having no part of what republicans stand for. The only good news in this is that they can't stop themselves, as the debate season and campaign will prove. Just wait until their official platform comes out during the convention, I'd wager good money now it will be even more vile and hateful than was the 2012 platform. They are a dying breed, and the sooner they go extinct the better. And insane racists like these only hasten the process.

Gene...I REALLY hope you're right when you say the GOP is ''shrinking''....so far, I haven't seen much evidence for that. They appeal to greed, hate, religiously-fueled resentments, etc.

It's the party of degenerates (in the fullest meaning of that word.)

I did see this and could not wrap my head around it either. We are seeing so much lately that I cannot wrap my head around. Last week, wasn't it, you posted the video about the Black Lives Matter protest on one side of the South Carolina state house, with a pro-Condeferate-Flag event on the other side? "Worst Mixer Ever"? And some of the whites yelled at the BLMs "You are the color of a bowel movement"? I just wanted to be able to shout across the miles and into the past as I was reading it, "Shut yo' mouth befo' any of them realize we-all are the color of pus." Of course it wouldn't have done any good. Who can reach people who are that crazy?

In sort of related news, Franklin Graham now wants to ban all Muslims from America. Genuine people of genuine faith are going on record to oppose his statements here:

Thanks Gene for your comments. I certainly hope this is the case as they are really showing just who they are and what they stand for. A bunch of disgusting and despicable loud mouth morons and that's insulting to morons.

Lona - "If racists keep being protected on all levels by authorities, black people will take matters in their own hands and though it will not be pretty, they will be joined by many other minorities that feel and are discriminated against." - there are some white folks who will proudly join the black folks too.

Pat, Winn, all. Yes, that is true. I can't find it at the moment, but I will. The republican base (older white voters) has been shrinking as a percentage of the total vote by 1% to 2% per year since 1994, in every national election. There's a chart out there somewhere that I've linked to before - and they are not bringing in anything like the necessary numbers of young people to replace those dying off, which is essentially what is happening. They also, of course, are not helping themselves by moving ever further to the right fringe with their conservative religious based ideas. Really, most of their candidates are as extreme religiously as are any in any Islamic country. It isn't Sharia they want to impose here but a conservative christian version of it. Which will never fly in this country. People who think like that are really a shrinking part of the population which will be more than half non-Caucasian by 2043. They are noisy now but they'll quiet down as their numbers are overrun by people who want this to remain a free and secular nation.

Puzzle — 3:15 Great colour for this succulent! As the purple in my hair "fades", it becomes a very bright colour like this flower! Have to love it!

Upworthy — Agnes Török nailed the Republicanus/Teabaggerum, and I am sure many other conservative austerity first governments! Kudos indeed!!!

The New Yorker — Republicanus/Teabaggerum family values from the nomination hopefuls. I think a movie was made about this . . . Sex, Lies and Videotape! Good one Andy!

Washington Post — I wonder how the Republicanus/Teabaggerum would feel if they were discriminated against just because they were Republicanus/Teabaggerum? . . . put the shoe on the other foot so to speak. How fast can you say SCOTUS? I am sure there would be yowling and howling, and great nashing of teeth.

Cartoon — You can have it Teabaggerum!

Oops! Previous post is on the wrong thread. Here is the correct one.

If you follow the link — The occupants then called them niggers and threatened them with violence — in the story, it will take you to a video. I do not however know if this is the video that has been removed above.

These lower life forms that think it is OK to spoil a child's birthday party by driving around with racist flags, parking on the grass which is someone's private property, threatening people with guns, and yelling racial slurs, need to be taught a lesson . . . I just don't know how that lesson should be taught. They and their unbridled hatred are thoroughly disgusting. I have to belive that karma will be a bitch for these neanderthals. This reminds me of an incident in Buffalo, NY when my maternal grandfather took my brother and I down his "Archie Bunker" style street to a corner store to buy Squirt. Outside the store there were a number of African American men standing about. My grandfather grabbed me by the collar and pulled me close as he said "Come here girl or the N*****s will get you!" I never forgot that on an emotional and physical level. I never forgave my grandfather either and refused to have anything more to do with him.

I seriously believe that these racist organizations (any RepubliCON group: from the KKK to the Evangelical Right-wingers, to the GOP Central) are inciting this sort of thing to provoke race riots & their favorite institution, martial law. Doing so would get a whole bunch of Democrats (or possible Democrats) locked up, deported, or both. Since we know those deviants starting this stuff would be "protected & served" by Police, paramilitary types, and probably the National Guard, we can only hope they'll be so drunk with power (and assorted beers & liquors) that They'll forget to vote come election time.

big brave , gun , toting republician , confederate fag wavers . shows you just how big their balls really are . well you have to be brave , to take on a child's birthday party . and I'm sure the cops didn't get to much involved ,cause they would have probably sided with the fag wavers so there would be too many witnesses to what ever evil they committed . can someone tell me what ever happened to "the land of the free and the home of the brave" ??when it come back to the 50's land of the racist bigoted and prejudiced crowd who wear the label so proudly ? even up to what they say about the President .

I'm relieved in a way that the video is not working. The text says enough. This memory will haunt the children who attended this party. Instead of being victimized, I hope it galvanizes them to greater action to conquer this evil by not internalizing it. Unfortunately, evil like this is unilkely to ever be eradicated. It just gets driven underground. At this point in time, it seems racism is rearing its ugly head once again, in all its more blatant forms.

If only this were just a time warp!!
I have friends, in Florida, white folk, who visited Georgia some years back, looking for a place to get to in the event of more big time coastal hurricanes. They stayed a while in some town, and found the bigotry so blatant that they abandoned their idea!
As I sit, writing this, I take time out to simply hold my head in my hands and experience dismaying disbelief!

Despicable and disgusting. These aren't men, they are bullies who act like they are still in high school, getting away with terrorizing those who cannot defend themselves. One can only hope Chris and Gene are correct in that the rabid right Republicans are on their way out. Unfortunately, it can't be soon enough.

Noted with true nausea and a deepening of revulsion and trepidation toward the evil 1% that rules the world and easily buys the Republicans. I say "easily buys", as no one would become a member without knowing what's demanded of them, just as no one would join the KKK without knowing what's demanded of them. So, only a certain mindset joins their clubs. Perhaps, as both are dwindling in number, they should just make it official and unite. Meow--TomCat!! Claws out for that sort!!! Thanks.
