The racist hits just keep on coming. These people have no shame whatsoever. I guess Stewart knows the same "good people" that Trump does.

the potus supporting it is popular, AGAIN, and is presented as normalized ameriKKKan value by Fox news, both nationally and locally the midterms MUST send a message to these type of people. We are better than this. I truly hope. Otherwise....

They'll vote for their own monetary interests. You know the old saying, "It's the economy, stupid."

shown by this potus and his racist base IS NOT about money. It's about racial superiority, white entitlement and privilege with people as described in post holding up a confederate flag as a white pride calling card for all who believe in his/her form of ameriKKKan politics.

How easily and continually do you think the WORD used by wypipo, in that photo, to describe a whole race of people, rolls off the lips of those 21st-century confederates and nazis? It is not about $$$ that make them use it.

Jobs and livelihood have always been used to drive a wedge between races and culture. Yet that is not the only reason people hate on the basis of color and culture, I believe.
