SICK.... No other words to describe the NRA.

The National Rifle Association picked a really weird way to mark a Mother's Day that began with more deadly violence;

I'm in absolute agreement with the tweets, the NRA should be identified as a Domestic Terrorist Organization.

"Equal Justice Under Law"... What a F-ing Joke!



Just saw Joy Reid lay the smackdown on Tucker Carlson.

Please someone here post the video.

Education of ethnic diversity and each group's history helps defeat Systemic Racism.

Isn't this what Republicans calls Socialism?

I'm all for it but it's interesting that a former Democrat, now Republican, is promoting this.

This is why there is still institutionalized sistemic racism in America.

MUST READ: Oklahoma House Passes Bill To Give Immunity To Drivers Who Hit Protesters

In an early morning vote along party lines, with 79 votes in favor and 18 against, state lawmakers approved legislation that would remove criminal or civil liability for any driver who “unintentionally” injures or kills someone while “fleeing from a riot,” as long as they have a “reasonable belief” that fleeing would protect themselves from harm.

In the United States the right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances".

“reasonable belief” that fleeing would protect themselves from harm = People of Color will be a target


MUST READ: Rep. Zoe Lofgren's Report Bares Lawmakers' Posts Bashing Election Before Capitol Riot

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) issued a massive 2,000-page report on Friday exposing thousands of social media posts by GOP lawmakers attacking the presidential election and spreading lies before and after the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol by Donald Trump supporters seeking to overturn the results.

No congressional member can serve who has taken an oath to support the Constitution and then engaged in insurrection, noted the California Democrat.

From Rep Lofgren's review and on 1/6, Rep. Bob Good (R-Virginia) perpetuated Trump's big lie and tweeted;

First,
I'm 110% certain that Bob Good does not represent Virginia's 5th People of Color, LGBTQs, and White Liberals. Bob Good is on the extreme side of Former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R) and a true Trump sycophant.

Second,
When a member of the Fascist Party (the former GOP) says, "ensure the integrity of the election," that's a dog whistle for promoting Voter Suppression. Fortunately, the state of Virginia is Blue.
