Looking at what happened in Portland, and the President’s response, I’m afraid that things are going to get a whole lot worse

Yesterday, several white nationalist groups descended on Portland, Oregon. The idea, it would seem, was for these heroic specimens of Arian perfection to bait the anti-fascist counter-protestors who had gathered in response into some kind of violent confrontation, in hopes that right-wing “journalists” like Andy Ngo might be able to get a few photos of […]

Our racist president, being a racist, says something racist

I didn’t want to write about Donald Trump’s most recent racist statements, as, to be honest, I didn’t see as how any good would come of it. It was just a week or so ago that we were talking about how he’d told four freshman Congresswomen of color to “go back” to the “crime infested” […]
