The main stream press often falls short of reporting the truth, even when it's painfully obvious. Perhaps it's so-called fairness doctrine, or perhaps it's not wanting to offend the corporations they depend on for advertising revenue. So usually what we get is diluted pabulum, more related to infotainment or infoganda than it is to information. But when that they actually do their job well, I'm delighted.

Oh, no frikken kidding. I'm afraid I lost my temper with one individual this morning who posted a comment on an article abou Black Lives Matter to the effect that if we would all start seeing people just as people, not white or black, all our problems would go away.

In fact, we tried that. We tried it for fifty years, and what heppened? All the bigots stayed bigots - but now they could start yelling "special treatment" every time anyone pointed out that being a person of color might just have some disadvantages. And, sadly, they managed to convice courts that affirmative action was, in fact, "special treatment." Now we have probably the classiest President in my lifetime, and people are publicly telling him he lies; referring to him as "this animal we have for a president;" posting stills from "Bedtime for Bonzo" with the caption "Look! Ronald Reagan babysat for Obama!" And that's just the President. For those who are not the President, we have people of color getting killed in the streets by law enforcement - and I could go on, but I couldn't even begin to cover it.

Sorry for the rant, TC; you touched a nerve.

We know it, they know it, and nothing is being done to rein this freak in. Very scary, indeed.

Thanks, Tom.

I hate the picture of a sweet, innocent, baby wearing a KKK onesie! That is very disturbing to me! Even if the picture is computer generated it represents evil! Thanks TC! xx

NY T:  “...claiming a person can’t do their job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment."  Paul Ryan.

 Let me get this straight, because i would sort of like not like to be ssort of wrong, big time, "Sort of like??  WTF then IS the definition of a racist comment?  

Yes, as I commented elsewhere, Rumpy either never got, or, characteristically, decided that HE did not have to bother with , the GOP memo on surreptious bigotry.

Great cartoon!  Nailed it!: Bring 'em up dumb, keep 'em dumb, and we'll "Make America Great, Again!"  
I just noted, the dumb ass could not even get the grammar right!

He's just GOTTA look up one day and say "It was all a JOKE!"! Doesn't that sound like something he would do? All the press time he would get for that!!!
Otherwise, please vote BLUE, NO matter what you do!

Trump has encouraged racists and xenophobes to express their hatreds that were simmering beneath civility for years. I had no idea how many people that I know were racists until Pres. Obama was elected, and since the primary started with Trump making his outrageous statements, I have found more. The Republican party encourages this, too, in my opinion.

What ma peeps said. I can't even begin to express my disgust and revulsion for the FFBB's, enmasse, Derr Fuhrer Rughead in particular and that baby picture not at all. I am just so utterly SICK TO DEATH of all the HATE and RACISM and FASCISM going on.

"But this is the party the Republicans have been deliberately and assiduously building for many decades, the party of division and intolerance."

Absolutely agree. This began with the Civil Rights movement when all those Blue Dog Democrats from the south turned republican. This is the party they built and its very foundation is unadulterated racism of the George Wallace variety for a long time, slightly more covert since then, but make no mistake, this is still the beating heart of the republican party. Donald is just saying out loud what they all believe - and they can't claim they don't. What they have done since the restrictions were removed on voting rights is out there for all to see, they went right back to the 60's and began trying to suppress minority votes. They're still at it but claim it isn't racism, just making sure only citizens vote though there is NO evidence of fraud at all. What they are doing all over the country where they hold power and even here in Minnesota where they don't is push for safeguarding the vote by restricting the ability to do so. That IS racist and I don't give a hoot what they try to pretend it is. What it is, is clear. And so is what they are.

Thanks Gene--you reminded me that historically the only candidate with as negative ratings as Trump and Clinton was Wallace. Fitting company.

Derr Fuhrer Drumpf should talk about "handicaps". He suffers from being a narcissistic bigoted racist tyrant bully and really enjoys himself in that role and capacity. The only place suitable for him is in a mental hospital out of sight.

Drumpf is saying out loud all the while the GOP/TP gleefully wish they could do so but actually keep their thoughts in their number two hole and in their pants. No wonder they smell so bad. lol.

Drumpf = racist, bigoted, xenophobic, misogynistic, narcissist

And by extension, those Republicans that follow him are the same. He is well beyond contempt!

None of us here had any doubts about it: " Given the cowardice of his fellow members of the party of Lincoln, Trump is, naturally, doubling down on running for racist in chief."

Andrew Rosenthal end his article with"" Supporters of Bernie Sanders who talk about voting for Trump instead of Clinton if their candidate finally decides to drop out should consider this latest episode, and Trump’s larger pattern, carefully. They should know they would be voting for a racist."
Now why haven't you told us that before, TomCat 🙂 😉 🙂

Well said Gene. This picture is disturbing on so many levels. I doubt if Trump would see it that way. Maybe it a picture of one of his grandchildren?

Thanks Winnie.

The Pic is not photo shopped. It's how a real Republican dresses their kid.
