Corey Stewart & Sheri Few promote white supremacy and Confederacy support

Since his election in November, Donald Trump can claim one major national change over the course of his first 100 days in office: the normalization of specific types of hate speech. While the rise in hate crimes and hubris of neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups offers tangible proof of this change, the emergence of far-right mainstream white supremacist GOP political candidates demonstrates just […]

Trump, Le Pen and Racism

Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen

On “Last Week Tonight,” his brilliant take on the world we inhabit, John Oliver spent considerable time discussing the upcoming French elections. The entire segment is worth watching–it’s informative as well as hilarious (if depressing can be hilarious)–but one quote really struck home. “One of the frustrating things about watching this unfold from America, is this feels a little like […]

The Trump Cabal–God Help Us All

Donald Trump

The most accurate one-liner about  the sorry lot that Donald Trump has assembled to run–or destroy– some of the nation’s most important agencies was by a Facebook poster who said he’d seen better cabinets at IKEA.

Milo Yiannopoulos

Earlier this afternoon Jenny Kefauver at Capital HQ contacted us threatening to sue over language we used in this article about Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos published last year.

Tomi Lahren Just Doesn’t Get It – And Probably Never Will

Tomi Lahren

Aiming to be the next Ann Coulter, conservative commentator and professional aggrieved white person Tomi Lahren just doesn’t appear to understand a large portion of what she’s talking about. Or, if she does, she’s clearly hoping her audience doesn’t see her for the conservative emperor with no clothing she really is. The most recent example of this failure to launch […]
