Haunting Photos Feature Trumps Sexist Comments Drawn On Womens Bodies *NSFW*



When Donald Trump won the presidential election in November, 18-year-old Aria Watson knew she needed to do something. So, she turned to art.

Watson, a first-year student at Clatsop Community College in Oregon, created a powerful photo series titled “#SignedByTrump” for a final project in a photography class. The images feature some of the sexist comments President-elect Donald Trump has made about women painted on naked women’s bodies.

Trump’s misogynistic comments paired with these women’s naked bodies serves as a powerful commentary on the damaging effect his words have had ― and will continue to have ― on so many women.

Watson told The Huffington Post she decided to mix her political opinions with her photography because she felt so strongly about Trump and Hillary Clinton. “I never really cared for or understood politics, but this year was different,” she said. “As a feminist, when I saw that Donald Trump actually won, my heart shattered.”

...

Watson explained why it’s important we continue to call out Trump’s sexism. “Kids are going to grow up and look up to this man for the next four years,” Watson said. “We can’t have a leader who says such horrible things about women. I’m scared that the way he speaks about women ― this sexism and misogyny ― will end up becoming a social norm.”

PLEASE. much more at the link.

I have to ask you.

Does the GOP and their incredibly filthy rich masters have a method to their madness, or are they just insane, narcissistic, megalomaniacs? Screwing the poor, the Vets, the minorities, the elderly, the infirm, the children, hell they don't need Cialis anymore, they screw us all and have a restful nights sleep. Their miniscule dicks are so proud of themselves!

Their minds are so fucked up with their incessant need to dominate that they do not think anything through. It is about now, MONEY MONEY MONEY POWER DOMINATION, I AM A MAN, our future has become bleak because of them all.

Let's think this through a bit. They are going to rip healthcare from us by destroying ACA. Twenty to THIRTY MILLION PEOPLE uninsured. Those that will probably die in the next year will be 45K. Then they are going after Medicare, a life line for seniors and taken away, we will die. Then, sad so many did not pay attention. SS. For some of us that is all we have. WE will die. Fact.


So. Going a step further here. Thousands uninsured, where the hell are they going to go when they are sick? Emergency Rooms will be overwhelmed. Some hospitals will treat you if you are uninsured, others deny treatment. Fact. The bodies will be stacking up and the hospitals that treat the uninsured will be going out of business left and right. You do realize the middle class will pick up the tab in taxes until we ourselves join the ranks of the dead and dying.

Bravo, you want us dead, you got your wish. I am rushing out to find a refrigerator box now! I might make it another year or so living under a bridge. You think this is a joke? It is NOT. You think I am kidding? I am NOT.

GOD BLESS FUCKING AMERICA land where we die so the rich can rule.

The music died.

America died.


I have to say.

I have never seen ANYTHING like this before.

I thought tRumps deplorable's were bad as they cheered on an avowed racist, bigoted, sexist man. Voted against their better interests, BECAUSE WHITE or something. So pitiful and scared, you are nothing other than sniveling sorry excuses for human beings. You are so terrified that you will lose your privileged white ass and what you believe to be your superiority, your "Reich" in this world, that you willfully voted him in without a care to the destruction of this earth and it's inhabitants.

Worse yet. A said progressive site after the election cheered Hillary's loss 'cause HILLARY IS NOT WELL LIKED, or something. Cheered it. Can you even imagine that? What type of Democrat would wish harm on another. Cheer the loss of ACA for 20 million? Cheer the loss of SS and Medicare? Cheer that we elected a predator in chief. Cheer that many will die, all minorities are at severe risk now, and they cheered.

You all just can't stand someone different than you and that is an incredibly sorry state you have put all of us in.

The color white is not all it is cracked up to be, it is a cool color. The absence of color it reflects heat where as black absorbs heat and light. I would far prefer to absorb the heat than reflect it.

Wake up. We are in deep shit.

JUST STOP IT!

President Obama has been the best thing that happened to this Country in the past, almost eight years now. His approval rating is at an all time high. You would never know that by reading DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND. To this day I am reading posts trashing him. Gawd, you people never give up. He has been trashed for years, by the GOP (One term President. You Lie. Ape. Not an American. He does not love this Country. Boy. N***er.) and by people that call themselves Dems here (POSUCS with hundreds and hundreds of RECOMMENDS!)


We are on the cusp of moving out of the light into darkness. We have our fears yet don't know the depths of despair in which we will sink. Under tRump we will lose it all. Our ACA. Medicare. Medicaid. SS. Our Environment. Rights. All. The tRump has declared war on all that are non white men. He has declared open hunting season come 01/20/17. If you are a woman. black. PoC. Jew. LGBTQ. Muslim. aged. different. tread carefully, you have a bulls eye on your back. Stick as close to your friends and family as you can. Watch for abuse around you, help them.

All I said may well be a moot point the psychotic deranged man with his angry puerile 3 am tweets has the nuclear codes. None of us will survive WWIII.

One way or another many people will die. That is a fact.

Street Artist Delivers Powerful Message To White America

“America is black. It is Native. It wears a hijab ... “


Oklahoma has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1968, and this year’s result was no different. Donald Trump won 65.3% of the state’s vote.

A powerful work of public art mounted in Oklahoma City on Sunday addresses those who gave credence to the racist, xenophobic and misogynistic language that dominated the president-elect’s campaign.

The piece, by street artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, pays homage to black Americans, Muslim Americans, American women, Latino Americans, and American immigrants ― all the populations deemed “other” and so loudly forsaken by the dangerous rhetoric of Trump’s camp.

“After the election, I immediately knew I wanted to make some public art during my trip to Oklahoma in a few weeks for Thanksgiving,” the artist wrote in a comment in Instagram. “I wanted to make something in a very Republican state that was a challenge to whiteness. So, I used a couple of recent drawings, one old drawing, and a drawing I did the day before installing this of my mother, to put together a diverse group of folks.”

The piece reads: “America is black. It is Native. It wears a hijab. It is a Spanish speaking tongue. It is migrant. It is a woman. It is here. Has been here. And it’s not going anywhere.”

Tatyana's work is breathtaking in it's power. Look in their eyes, all four of them, they draw you inside and gives you a glimpse of their souls.

Quick Takes: “This Land is Your Land”

by Nancy LeTourneau

July 1, 2016 5:14 PM

As we head into this July 4th weekend, I’m thinking about the fact that a lot of liberals struggle with the whole idea of patriotism. That’s because the word has often been associated with the air-brushed view of this country that omits the struggles and focuses mostly on symbolism. President Obama’s speech at the 50th anniversary of the Selma march gave us a more honest look at what patriotism really means.


And yet, what could be more American than what happened in this place? What could more profoundly vindicate the idea of America than plain and humble people –- unsung, the downtrodden, the dreamers not of high station, not born to wealth or privilege, not of one religious tradition but many, coming together to shape their country’s course?

What greater expression of faith in the American experiment than this, what greater form of patriotism is there than the belief that America is not yet finished, that we are strong enough to be self-critical, that each successive generation can look upon our imperfections and decide that it is in our power to remake this nation to more closely align with our highest ideals?

That’s why Selma is not some outlier in the American experience. That’s why it’s not a museum or a static monument to behold from a distance. It is instead the manifestation of a creed written into our founding documents: “We the People…in order to form a more perfect union.” “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

A Country that was literally built on the backs of black men and women.

I know many hate this song. All they can relate to is war. Yet this was a war that began your freedom. I don't like war, yet some are worth fighting. This one was. This young woman, so much beauty and passion.

This land is your land~ it is mine as well, we need to share equally.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men ( I will add women here) are created equal.”

Happy 4th.



Dear god.

That really upset me. I got a 7-0 hide on them. Now they are gone.

This is the second time in two days a one poster, posted filth to me. I feel stalked.

Love you Jag.

'Why are there no whites?': The Wiz Live draws huge numbers for NBC with over 11million viewers desp




One user tweeted to the major network: 'Minorities act like they're the victims, but can you imagine if we made an all-white version of The Wiz?'

Another user wrote: 'why are there no whites starring in #TheWiz? this is racist! can u
'Why are there no whites?' : The Wiz Live draws huge numbers for NBC with over 11million viewers despite hilarious confusion over the show's all-black cast
imagine if it were the other way? #whitelivesmatter #TheWizLive.'



Bwahahahahaha~



Additionally, a viewer posted: '#TheWiz on @NBC is a PC Disaster. An all-black Wizard of Oz? Give me a freaking break. I could say that's racist but...'

Others were more positive as one wrote: '@nbc it has been the other way before and we don't complain about all white casting, i.e the notebook, 500 days of summer..etc.'


NBC have not yet commented on the complaints.

It is most likely the complainants did not realize that The Wiz was written as a retelling of the classic story from an African-American context of The Wizard of Oz.

Penned by composer Charlie Smalls, the show won a Tony award and was adapted into a film in 1978 starring Michael Jackson, Dianna Ross and Richard Pryor.

The numbers for The Wiz far surpassed the 9.21million who watched last year's Peter Pan but fell short of the first live production of The Sound of Music in 2013, which drew 18.6million viewers.

The show even came close to beating Thursday's epic football game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions - an unheard of feat - but fell just short.

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! This was AWESOME!

I needs a copy, gotta watch again and again. It was beautiful.


Love you Bains!



Who needs that many houses?

I advocate her wealth be redistributed as well. She supports Bernie. She gets what she wishes for.

lol~

Ha~



Brava and Bravo.

These two are the adults in the room.

They were in a very heated primary. Obama won and Hillary lost. Yet they went on to develop respect and admiration of each other. She had his back during the General election. He made her SOS. If they could forgive, who are we to say different? They both carried themselves with a dignity and grace some may never know in their lifetime. This is the type of leader I wish to see in the White House.

I have seen many people here try to drive a wedge between them. I have seen pictures said to come from Hillary with Obama in native garb. I find it kind of amusing that some of these posters are the ones that trashed Obama for the last 7 years, now here they are taking his back in such a way as to trash Hillary.

No, the adults in the room are in the pictures.
