North Carolina Jim Crow And The Justice Department’s Response

In Gov McCrory, North Carolina bigotry, Transgender rights, US Justice Dept. Loretta Lynch on May 9, 2016 at 10:36 PM

Remember this?

Again we have yet another Republican Governor and state legislature working to regress life in their state via discrimination against Transgender people. From poisoning Flint Michigan’s  water supply  (to save money), through overt efforts to instill state law soundly grounded in discrimination. 

Will rational “Americans ever recognize the GOP and many of its conservative supporters for what they are: regressive social deviants with an abundance of white male privilege? As we watch Donald Trump assume the reigns of GOP leadership we should remind ourselves of past examples of political parties leading social regression which often ends in national horrors and disgrace.  We are potentially witnessing similar evolution and it is replete with full support from American white supremacists. Trump has offended just about every segment of the population with an exception for white males and the ever-present and nascent gleeful white supremacist who actively support Trump.

As we consider North Carolina’s efforts to enact a modern-day version of Jim Crow, we must recall our not so distant past: 


Martin Niemöller, a prominent Protestant pastor who opposed the Nazi regime. He spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. Germany, 1937.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
First, they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— 

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

As we add Transgender people to the list of groups offended by or discriminated against by the GOP, let’s consider 13 groups Donald Trump has offended (Liberal America post). While the list was published in December 2015, I posit the list should be amended to include even deeper offenses against African-Americans and American Jews via Trumps refusal to denounce growing support from “white supremacists.”

Time to review North Carolina’s HB-2 (Transgender Bathroom Law)

In response to a Justice Department order to repeal the law, this morning (the day of the deadline) the state’s governor took to the airways and doubled-down regarding the law. He even reached to pull other states into his and his state’s web of bias and discrimination.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trumpism (Taco Salad, Rick Perry, Refusal To Denounce)

In, Refusal To Denounce, Rick Perry, Taco Salad, The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trumpism on May 9, 2016 at 11:50 AM

The level and scope of Trump unfavorable are astounding  The rational person has to ask, “how can so many Americans fall for the child-like demeanor and rhetoric of Donald Trump?”  The answer to the question lies in Trump’s celebrity, oratory (albeit ridiculous and often shameful), and opportunity. Let’s take a quick look and read about political opportunity from one very disingenuous Republican.

Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, stated he is not yet ready to endorse Trump.  No worries, Ryan will follow lock-step along with others in his party, but for now, let’s consider Ryan.

He obviously has gotten the Memo from the RNC regarding referring to the GOP as the party of Lincoln.  Really?

Watch what you can of the following interview. After you can watch no more consider visiting the link that follows the video.

Rest assured Ryan will cuddle under to Trump immediately after the meeting schedule with the RNC Chair on Thursday of this week.

Trump refuses to denounce his neo-nazi followers and supporters. It is important to recognize Wolf Blitzer is Jewish.  Trump doesn’t even have the inner core to even slightly modify his paradigm during an international interview.  He clearly is counting on the white male vote to take him to the White House.

If you need more validation of Trumps appeal to white supremacists, white nationalists, and simple-minded racists, try Pat Buchanan on for size.

Pat Buchanan joins David Duke in supporting Trump while continuing to work towards whitewashing America. 

Some do not fall far from the tree.

Happy ! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics! 

Trump’s special form of bigotry and racism regarding an American dish as a tool to offer carnival barker messages to Latinos was both revealing and horrific. If you want to see and hear worse, watch as the RNC Chair, Reince Priebus, avoids criticizing his racist nascent party leader.

 Politico’s Mike Allen asked Priebus about Trump’sexhibition. Believe it or not, Priebus started his remarks with an: “uh.” 

“Uh, he’s trying,” Priebus says to audience laughter. “Honestly, he’s trying and I’ll tell you what, and I honestly think he understands that building and unifying and growing the party is the only way we’re gonna win.”

“He’s trying.”  “Trying!” 
Priebus’s remarks provide validation of Trump’s over the top flawed social views ad elitism?

Trump and Priebus and their part in this latest example of true racism are only surpassed by the reality Trumps tea allowed him to develop such an exhibition. It would be interesting to know who in Trump’s corral actually came up with the idea? After that, it would be even more interesting to know Trump’s top advisors didn’t reject the exhibition. The answer is obvious, elitism and bigotry are rampant in all things Trump.

taco salad is an American dish.

Fox News’s Hannity endorse Trump and jumps Ryan for not doing same. If you know of another news network with hosts who openly endorse political candidates, please consider leaving us a note. We boxed you in a bit and that was unfair. We mentioned news networks; Fox News is not a news network, therefore, we have to take Hannity in the context of “the show.”
