Shocker! Richard Spencer is a racist asshole

Leaked audio purportedly captures Richard Spencer's racist, violent threats after Charlottesville

“We are going to destroy this f**king town,” he is heard saying in the audio. "I rule the f**king world."

Former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos published a leaked audio recording that he claims shows white nationalist leader Richard Spencer shouting racist slurs and threats after the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

“My ancestors f**king enslaved those little pieces of f**king sh*t,” the man identified as Spencer shouts in the audio recording. “They don’t do this to f**king me. We’re going to f**king ritualistically humiliate them.”

“Little f**king kikes,” the audio continues. “They get ruled by people like me. Little f**king octaroons.”

The audio includes a threat to return to Charlottesville repeatedly.

“We are coming back here like a f**king hundred times,” the voice in the recording says. “I am so mad. I am so f**king mad at these people. I am coming back here every f**king weekend if I have to. Like this is never over. I win. They f**king lose. That’s how the world f**king works. I rule the f**king world. Those pieces of sh*t get ruled by people like me.”

“We are going to destroy this f**king town,” he added.

Seriously what are Republicans offering? Is it just fear tactics and divisiveness?

What are they offering the American people? To the people voting for them?
For all the dissent amongst Democrats, I appreciate that they are bringing IDEAS! Whether its Medicaid 4 all, free college tuition, improving Obamacare, universal income, Universal Pre- K, Green new deal. I can look at all these ideas and evaluate if they add value to my life, my community, our country and our planet.

I was just watching the Kentucky Gov's political ad. Nothing about what he would do for the people. It was be afraid of the scary democrats. They don't share our values. I'm sure values is not so coded racist/bigoted.

Then I listened to a reporter that said he asked the Gov why he spent so much time talking about Trump and nationalizing a local race while his opponent was focused on education, healthcare etc. The reporter said the Gov responded by saying Trump wins. He won by 30 points. So this is what he chose to offer his constituents. Trump?
At the rally last night, he was firing up the crowd by saying lets show the country we support Pres Trump.

So at what point do these PUBLIC SERVANTS actually SERVE THE PUBLIC? Is the plan really fear tactics, fear the scary democrats and others and worship president trump?

So confused. Well not really. But just continued to be amazed by how many people accept this...

What does Trump have to do with the Terminator?

Wow, so many themes in this movie. Immigration, people in cages, losing jobs to AI, guns, women are the future. I really liked it. I'm surprised it did not do better at the box office. I think they incorporated a lot of those themes without being preachy. Gotta wonder if the Mexican heroine theme was a turnoff for some?

Anyhoo, I thought Arnold Shwarzenagger and Linda Hamilton were superb.
Here's what the director had to say
[link:https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2019-11-01/terminator-dark-fate-linda-hamilton-mackenzie-davis-natalia-reyes|
Many involved say the intention was not to make an overtly political “Terminator” sequel. Yet Cameron, who shepherded the storyline and recruited a writer’s room to chart out a potential three-film arc, delights in the pointed commentary.

“When you look at how Trump thinks of Mexico … it’s like, well, we’re going to tell a story about the most important person in the world,” he said. “She’s so important that they bend time to send an agent back to try to kill her to change the future. Let’s make her a Mexican national.

“Now you’ve got gender, but you’re also bringing race, culture and politics into it with that one decision. That’s absolutely by design, and that’s something that we talked about and we all leaned into,” he said. Adding not one but two female protectors in the forms of Sarah and Grace deepened that choice.

Maybe the Dems need to play dirty too - Go after Ivanka and Don Jr

Maybe the politicians might think it beneath them but it sure would be nice to see a Super PAC running ads on a loop about that Fraud case that went away after a donation was made to the prosecutor.

William Barr: Our Less Christian Society Is To Blame For Mental Illness And Drug Abuse
“Judeo-Christian moral standards are like God’s instruction manual for ... the best operation for human society,” said the attorney general.

Thanks Obama! Its your fault that Giuliani's buddies are criminals.

This whole. Ukraine scandal is your fault. Thanks Obama!

[link:https://www.mediamatters.org/peter-schweizer/asked-about-arrest-giuliani-associates-peter-schweizer-tells-fox-news-goes-back|

Asked about arrest of Giuliani associates, Peter Schweizer tells Fox: “This goes back to the Obama administration”

BILL HEMMER (ANCHOR): Rudy Giuliani was in the news yesterday — apparently this association with two men from overseas, who were arrested at Dulles International Airport with one-way tickets out. What could be the connection here? What do you think is behind this arrest, Peter?

PETER SCHWEIZER (BREITBART SENIOR CONTRIBUTOR): Yeah, the arrest seems to be tied to the fact that these individuals were sending money to a pro-Trump political PAC, I believe it was, and several members of Congress, tending to be Republicans. And that court case basically alleges that they weren't providing the funds. The funds were coming from someone else — which would be illegal — and I think further underlines the problems when you're dealing with Ukraine.

I mean, this goes back to the Obama administration. The number one recipient — or the number-one giver of money to the Clinton Foundation were donors from Ukraine. Then you have all the drama in 2016, you have Paul Manafort. The point is, Ukraine is a terribly corrupt country. They are trying to curry favor in the United States. And I think in the case of Hunter Biden, the notion that he got this sweetheart deal, is nothing to see, is just contradicted by the fact that you have all these other actions going forward. I think the bottom line is, we don't want Ukrainian meddling in the United States and politics.

I don't know if I buy all these Republicans secretly hate what Trump is doing

The Republican Party of old has died.
This is the Trump party filled with kooks and deplorables.
They welcome the disinformation and conspiracy theories along with the racism and everything else.
Their pathetic deplorable following do not know how to discern truth from stupid conspiracies. They have someone else to blame for their woes - immigrants
It keeps them where the Republicans want them. Unable to see what's really going on - all the roll back of policy that eventually hurt them in the future, the tax breaks to the wealthy - that does not benefit them, trying to take away their healthcare and on and on.

If the Republicans truly detested Trump, they would join with Democrats to try to take back their party from Trump and perhaps restore some dignity to their party. Sure some members may lose seats but if it means restoring the party then so be it. As far as the Trump base, yeah, they would whine and cry about it but eventually they get over it. What are they gonna do? Vote for democrats? That's never going to happen for the hard core Trump base. If they want to keep things like conservative judges then they will still vote Republican.

So Republicans can rebuke the NBA for kowtowing to China, but cannot say a bad word re: Trump?

These people never cease to amaze me.

So Trump allegedly has told China he will not speak out re: Hong Kong Protests
These same republicans have nothing to say regarding that but quickly rebuke the NBA?

Pols blast NBA for ‘kowtowing’ to China

The National Basketball Association on Sunday broke its silence on a brewing controversy between China and the Houston Rockets — and was promptly denounced by several Capitol Hill lawmakers and 2020 presidential hopefuls for "kowtowing" to the foreign power.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey waded into geopolitical tensions Friday, posting an image on Twitter that said “fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong,” in the midst of ongoing pro-democracy protests and clashes with police in the region.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz defended the GM of his home state team: “As a lifelong @HoustonRockets fan, I was proud to see @dmorey call out the Chinese Communist Party’s repressive treatment of protesters in Hong Kong. Now, in pursuit of big $$, the @nba is shamefully retreating.”

“It’s clear that the @NBA is more interested in money than human rights. Tonight’s statement from Commissioner Silver is an absolute joke,” Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott tweeted, referring to Adam Silver. “The NBA is kowtowing to Beijing to protect their bottom line and disavowing those with the temerity to #standwithHongKong. Shameful!”

So wait, Sondland gave $1million to Trump inauguration, has no experience in foreign diplomacy

Appears to be part of this Ukraine conspiracy but they want us to believe they were investigating corruption? They are running around saying Hunter should not have had this job because he had no experience so something must be amiss? Sonland had no foreign diplomacy experience. Yet after giving $1million to Trump he gets an Ambassador position?

I swear you can't make this shit up! The audacity of bullshit that comes from this administration.
