“Trash” Is the New N Word

Right wing hateration against the Obamas (and black people in general) continues.

Someone named Tammy Bruce, guest hosting for Laura Ingraham, waxes philosophical about “the trash in the White House”. According to HuffPo’s transcript, the psycho-pundit said:

“…You know what we’ve got? We’ve got trash in the White House. Trash is a thing that is colorblind, it can cross all eco-socionomic…categories. You can work on Wall Street, or you can work at the Wal-Mart. Trash, are people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy…”

Really, you have to listen to believe. I have to hope she was high because it’s pure insanity.

Loco as this is, HuffPo also links to a Townhall piece which tries to fake deep thinking proving that Michelle is…wait for it…a bitch. Think even THEY couldn’t be this pathetically obvious in their need to keep the Negroes in their place?

“The burning question in my circle is: If the First Family gets a female dog, will she be the First Bitch or will she have to settle for second place?”

OK. I gotta ask: Where is this moron’s circle, exactly? 

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
