White Nationalists, for example, view Jews as "non white",.

30. A pretty amazing comment when one looks at the scence thin that video.

Every last one of the four people in that image is a white male over the age of 70. Those poor, poor suffering white men. "Weapons-grade stupid" doesn't even begin to describe this.

fortunately he looks old enough to have his eternal rest soon, and than we won't have to hear that from him again. In the meantime, he should lose his rights to be in public office.

20. Or his unimaginable nightmares, like a Hispanic or Black lesbian, or transgender woman POTUS

Good thing he’s not here in Chicago,where he could already see our mayor who won all 50 wards in the election.
Shows republican gay men what these people are thinking though ...
Buttigieg is White and a male ( and a Christian )
but that’s not what they see as similar
just what’s not exactly like them so = a nightmare in their pea heads

The entire GOP, from the virulently racist to the cravenly cowardly are this fuckwad in a nutshell....

For those out there who still preach "common ground", get the fuck out of my sight...or I may actually slap you. There is NO COMMON GROUND with these people. Fuck them all.

10. It's no surprise that some county commissioner in Tennessee said that.

No surprise at all. It will probably help him win the next election.

There are two nations in the United States of America. The one that asshole is from is the one that tried to secede a long time ago. He lives in the long ago past.

36. The only solution is to keep on keeping on

The metropolitan areas of TN are very blue. Individually, we will keep trying to make inroads as we can to those in our everyday lives who are on the other end of the spectrum politically. As a group, I can tell you the Nashville women's march has had incredible turnout and the annual Pride parade and Pride Weekend continues to be a big celebration. We do what we can and how we can, despite the numbskulls in the outlying areas

They will follow Trump to the ends of the earth. They are so entrenched into Republican nonsense they will never see Trump for what he is because he embodies their beliefs. This is the same group who to this day hates "big govt" because of the TVA

Think about that for a second. We were there as part of the process of awarding them business.

Now it is infested with Confederate flags and "Jesus Is Coming. R U Saved?" yard signs

Interestingly Johnson was elected to the US Senate and died in office, claiming vindication nine years after impeachment.

24. I grew up in East TN. Color me NOT surprised at all.

Back in the late 1990s, I was riding with a black, male friend in a truck, near the Obed wild & scenic river in East TN, when we were shot at by two white men after they yelled “Hey! N_____!” at us. Yikes! It was terrifying. My friend is not an American and he was shocked.

There were KKK living out in the county near the town where I grew up. They would hold fundraising drives while in full KKK robes and pointy hats! This was back in the late 1970s.

I was home this past weekend. My sister (R - talk radio listener - never reads the papers - no college degree - Harley Rider - gun owner) became angry with me and accused me of being a “Democrat and probably a communist!”

I wanted to tell her she was exactly the person to whom the “I love the uneducated!” comment was directed, but she wouldn’t have had a clue to what I was referring.

I wanted to tell her the communist nation, China, is currently brutally suppressing human rights and democracy in Hong Kong and that MF45 is totally OK with that. But, she doesn’t have a fucking clue.
