Far-Right Yankee Blogger Attacks Anti-Racist Blog From The Deep-South

A far-right Yankee blogger attacked us for our coverage of Confederate statues. Instead of clapping back, this was an educational opportunity about what the deep-south has been like for BIPOC over the last century and a half.

Are Lynched Slaves Still Buried Under Parker County Courthouse Lawn?

This may be one of the biggest stories around the ongoing conflict with the Confederate statue in Weatherford. There were once four lynched slaves buried there and no record of the bodies ever being removed. Even more shocking, the Parker County Historical Commission may have been aware of it and took steps to cover it up.

If elected officials can be charged with sedition; why not these right-wing Q-celebrities on OAN?

se·di·tion
/səˈdiSH(ə n/

noun
conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

The "newscasters" on OAN and Newsmax are intentionally spreading misinformation and talking about overturning the election, which is contributing to all of these Trumpers thinking they have a cause.

Wouldn't that also be sedition?

I made Allen West so mad, both he and Texas GOP tweeted about me.

This very well may be the highlight of my week.

Shenita Cleveland caught on video, at a Shelly Luther/Trump rally; supporters calling her the n-word, monkey, and other racial slurs. I wrote about it and encouraged Dems in the article and in Facebook groups to vote against Luther, (article below). I guess it worked because 13% of early voters in SD30 were Dem primary voters. Shenita then made a public post thanking me (Living Blue in Texas), and Allen West got all butt-hurt about it.
