You have no right to pretend to send condolences now.

1. You created the Muslim Ban
2. You use rhetoric to purposely inspire White Nationalists
3. the shooter's manifesto cites YOUR WORDS
4. Very good people on both sides
5. You have purposely fueled this hate

You have no right to pretend to send condolences now.

My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!

Murdoch's Sky News Australia has been taken off the air in New Zealand after it broadcast the mosque shooter's disturbing video of the attack

We stand in support of our fellow New Zealanders and have made the decision to remove Sky News Australia from our platform until we are confident that the distressing footage from yesterday’s events will not be shared #KiaKahaChristchurch https://twitter.com/SKYNZ/status/1106402563409113088


Mayor Pete Buttigieg: Some words for South Bend's Muslim community.



Asked by a reporter if white nationalism is a growing threat, @POTUS replies,
”not really,” suggesting it’s just a small group of people.

The FBI does not agree


In the last decade, 73.3% of all domestic extremist-related killings have been perpetrated by right-wing extremists, compared to 23.4% perpetrated by terrorists motivated by Salafi-jihadism and 3.2% by left-wing extremism.


& Neither does the New Zealand Prime Minister



Remarkable, moving statement from Australian news anchor Waleed Aly on Christchurch.

“You’ll have to forgive me, these won’t be my best words...”

On this heartbreaking day, Waleed reflects and calls for unity.


"Call off the investigations and nobody gets HURT, See?"

Ireland's openly gay prime minister met with Mike Pence and he had a special message just for him


Ireland’s openly gay prime minister met with America’s openly homophobic vice president on Thursday. “Vice President Mike Pence invited me and Matt to his home at the Naval Observatory this morning,” Ireland’s Taioseach Leo Varadkar tweeted. “It’s great to be back here for a really warm reception.” But some choice words were saved for when the cameras were on Pence.

“I stand here leader of my country,” Varadkar said to the audience assembled at the residence, “flawed and human, but judged by my political actions and not by my sexual orientation, my skin tone, gender or religious beliefs.” Pence was sitting to Varadkar’s immediate right, just feet away.

“I don’t believe my country is the only one in the world where this story is possible,” he continued. “It is found in every country where freedom and liberty are cherished. We are after all, all god’s children. That’s true of the United States as well, the land and home of the brave and free." But it’s also true that the vice president’s wife works at a school that bans people like Varadkar and his partner, Matt Barrett.

The same Pence that defended that bigotry was also seen chatting with Barrett before posing for photos. It really so perfectly sums up the giant phony that is Pence, and what a complete joke it is to believe this administration is in any way pro-LGBTQ (cough Maggie Haberman cough). Remember that while Pence is smiling for the cameras, the administration he’s pledged his fealty to is busy implementing state-sanctioned hate.

Pelosi Never Actually Ruled Out Impeachment

Molly Ball: “Conventional wisdom in Washington tends to treat impeachment as a fringe crusade, on a par with campaigns by anti­fluoridation activists or UFO ­enthusiasts, and views Pelosi as right to resist this momentum. Many believe it would be a political disaster for Democrats, galvanizing Trump’s base and alienating moderates. Republicans have taken to goading their opponents to try it, while White House officials say they relish the prospect of the Democratic Party tearing itself apart over the issue.”

“But Pelosi is actually playing a deeper game. Her aides note that she’s never ruled impeachment out. All she’s done, they say, is set a ­standard: ­increased popular support and some degree of GOP backing. Behind the scenes, she and her team are working to see that standard is met.”

Said one senior Pelosi aide: “The easy thing to do would be to start down the path of impeachment. That’s a trap. Now that we have the gavel and can expose all of this wrongdoing, I think you will start to see a shift in public opinion and movement of Republicans.”
