Anyone confused about why they're going after Susan Rice?

It seems to me that it's almost automatic. She's an intelligent, Black woman who held high office in the previous administration and did an excellent job. For some White people - especially those who support the current administration - this is an affront to everything they believe, and, consequently, she makes the perfect scapegoat for their inability to explain away Trump's idiotic position that President Obama surveilled him and his cronies in Trump Tower.

As a Caucasian myself, I find their unfounded accusations to be disgusting and pitiful.

What do you think?

You under-estimate them at your peril. See what doing so has led to so far?

2. Caught and guilty means you try to get the evidence thrown out. Really simple.

That started when the WH was subpoenaed (I assume) and WH counsel ordered document preservation (they don't say why).

Which triggered Trump's cyber-lynching of Obama to try to politicize the investigation to get the evidence thrown out.

Once the WH had been put on notice, everyone got really serious. What they want is to put on a happy face and pretend nothing is wrong, but they are no longer able to hide their panic.

Don't confuse them trying to spin this into "the black guy's fault" as not taking it seriously. That is part of their exit strategy from a very serious situation and evidences how seriously they are taking it. Nunes has revealed the degree to which they are shitting bricks and committing obstruction crimes to hide their total terror about the criminal investigation now that they know they were caught on tape.

They will strike back at any available target , no matter gender , race , religion , etc.
(It certainly doesn't hurt them in the eyes of their base , when they go after non-white males.Win-win for them , so they think.)

8. Malcolm Nance nails it:


"What Susan Rice did in her capacity as National Security Adviser is done every day."




Meanwhile on Twitter, #TrumpsTrolls are generating a ton of fake news besmearing her and calling for Obama to be jailed.

The cyber lynching continues, now with two black victims, Obama and Rice.

5. They are claiming Hillary got intelligence briefings after she stopped

being secretary of state for a time. Which is completely normal. Seems like they are trying to add Hillary into the Obama, Rice conspiracy. At least that was going on at the Discussionist last time I checked.

On a more serious note there must be a cash prize for whomever comes up with the best conspiracy of the week in GOP circles.

14. I tried to cover this story the other day:

Now trump is cyber lynching President Obama in ALL CAPS.

Well, it has grown to include Rice and the trolls are hard at work spinning even more fake news. The rabbit hole is becoming a massive warren of lies.

Tonight, I took a different approach:

Dirty Rotten Lying Sack of Shit

20. I'm old enough to have marched for civil rights as a college student.

I will never forget some of the crowds that lined the street where we were marching spitting at us and calling us "N--- lovers." That absolutely confirmed for me that we were doing the right thing. When we elected Barack Obama, I naively thought that the battle was finally over. Was I ever wrong!! And here we are again, fighting the same fights. I don't know how long it will take, but justice and equality will certainly win. I just pray that it's in my lifetime.

Just some personal reflections.

23. Except they changed "wiretap trump tower" to "wiretap" to "general surveillance" to

 

"incidental collection" to "incidental collection from talking to foreign spies"

The paranoid delusion that spun this web was that Obama specifically and maliciously ("sick" targeted Trump specifically and collected his phone calls. But now the "smoking gun" the rightwing has found is "a Trump associate's name being on a piece of paper somewhere within the intell community and an Obama-linked person seeing that info".

I'm sure my name is in some database somewhere, but that doesn't mean I'm being watched by Obama through my webcam.

11. Agree.

My first thought as well was that it stirs up and unites their racist base in the same way that maligning President Obama and Obamacare stirs up and unites them. The white supremacists would naturally like to think of them as inferior/defective/incompetent/bad.

25. You're certainly entitled to your opinion.

Obviously, I disagree. There is absolutely NO credibile evidence that Susan Rice did anything to disseminate any information to anyone. I suggest that you stick with InfoWars and Breitbart if you seek comfort for your views.

31. I'm ashamed to be white knowing all that whites have done

over centuries to screw any and all people they think they are above due to their genetic skin color and that they actually think they are entitled and should feel that way. The level of ignorance is astounding in my view.

I am a white woman and I absolutely did NOT vote for Drumpf. I voted for Hillary as she was the most qualified and it is proven as he screws up royally numerous times a day. He is a total embarrassment and should be ashamed of himself. He is a loser of the highest order. Hillary won, but he was installed to the detriment of the world. We only have the greedy, white-supremacist GOP crooks with their gerrymandering, voter suppression, e-voting machine hacking and Russian interference to thank for that. A long well-planned coup with the help of the bought-and-paid-for cable news media.

I pray every one of the bastards are removed in handcuffs and the sooner the better it will be. They will blame and demean their own mothers to keep the truth from being known. They are the scum of this earth.
