Rape-publicans, Bathrooms, and Bigotry

Ever since their defeat in the 2003 Lawerance v. Texas decision, which removed the ability of the right-wing religious bigots from breaking into peoples homes to tormet, beat, and arrest people for consensual relationships in the privacy of their own home, right-wing bigots have been searching for an avenue of attack.

The conservative movement believes it has hit upon an unbeatable legal strategy with their current crop of Bathroom crotch sniffing and Christian Bigotry Bills. By couching their bigotry in phrase sincere religious beliefs and euphemistically used title Privacy ,conservatives believe their Pro-Discrimination anti-transgender Bills would easily be signed into Law in states run by Republican Legislatures and Governors and survive challenges in the Right-Wing dominated SCOTUS.

Of course, while conservatives dominate gerrymandered and voter-suppressed States they don't control social media or society at large any longer and the backlash against Conservative Bigotry has been swift.

There are no credible reports of a Transgender person accosting someone in a bathroom. The laws in Tennessee, Mississippi, and North Carolina do not reference incidents or police reports because they do not exist. In fact, it's much more likely, a Republican Congressman like Dennis Hastert or Mark Foley or a Conservative blowhard like Rush Limbaugh or Ted Nugent, will rape your child than a transperson.

But, look at the way conservatives frame their talking points, for instance Curt Schilling Facebook post which cost him his job at ESPN. It's Rape and/or fear of Rape.

While an element of gay panic and hatred of the other comprise a significant part of these laws, there is the deep dark desire of Rape underlining these Republican laws.

Conservatives and Republicans are seemingly always a hair's-breadth away from forcing themselves onto young girls. It's why Republican officials are always talking about Rape because Rape is always on their mind. Republicans can't stop talking about how they want to break into bathrooms and rape young women.

Rape-Rape-Rape. It's the first thought of Rape-publicans when they wake up in the morning and their last thought at night. Rape-Rape-Rape. Thus, because projection is their strongest belief, Republicans believe that must be the case with the LGBTQ community.

The New Centurions (1970) by Joseph Wambaugh pretty much encapsulates the conservative view on LGBTQ persons. Wambaugh's books exude a reactionary ethos, especially, when he writes about liberals and race relations but, when he writes about the LGBTQ community, which he does extensively in all his books, it's with fascinated revulsion bordering on the homicidal.
"Did you guys hear how many marines Hollywood vice busted last weekend?" asked Simeone...
"What's happening in Hollywood?" asked Gant
"What always happens?" Said Simeone. "The joint is lousy with faggots. I hear they got twenty marines in fruit pinches last weekend. They're going to notify the general at Camp Pendleton."
"That pisses me off," said Gant. "I was in the corps but things were different in those days. Even marines are different now." (Ibid. 177-178)
Wambaugh devotes an entire chapter of his belief that gay and lesbian people are akin to hardened criminals,
"You know The Cave?" Gant asked Roy.
"The fruit joint on Main?"
"Yeah, but it's not just fruits. There's lesbians, sadists, masochists, hypes, whores flim flammers, paddy hustlers, hugger muggers, ex-cons of all descriptions, and anybody else with a kink of some kind or other." (Ibid. 174)
And
"It's a beautiful place," said Roy.
"The park? Oh, yeah. But it's full of faggots and thieves and assholes in general. No decent people dare hang around here after dark." said Ranatti. (Ibid. 189)
Towards the end of the chapter the Vice squad and uniformed backup raid The Cave. Wambaugh's phrasing is perhaps revealing, "he watched the blue wedge of bodies insert itself into the opening of the Cave." And "the cathartic blue wedge of policemen withdrew from the mouth of The Cave". Emphasis mine. Perhaps Wambaugh is being cute and having a chuckle at his clever phrasing or perhaps...

The only character in The New Centurions who shows a scintilla of humanity or respect for Civil Rights is "Roy Fehler",
Roy was not completely certain that he would like to receive an eighteen-month assignment to vice because he respected the privacy of others. He believed that this undercover surveillance smacked of fascism and he believed that people, damn it, were trustworthy and there were very few bad ones despite what cynical policemen said.
But, Roy the Liberal gets told off by Wambaugh in blackface and gets shot on two occassions, the last fatally to close the book.

But, foruntaely times have changed so much so that in the Cop Series Southland (2009-2013), which used portions of Wambaugh's books as source material, one of the main characters "John Cooper" is homosexual. The series does treat the character's sexual orientation as an intergral issue often leading to tension between partners and civilians on the street.

While, I could go further into Wambaugh and Reactionary Police Officers, that's a subset of this issue, and the Officers of Wambaugh's day are 2 or 3 generations removed from working the job.

What we are looking at with the Sincere Religious Belief Laws and Patriotic Bathroom Privacy Acts are hopefully the last gaps of the bigoted hateful right-wing. But, I don't believe so.

One would think small-government loving conservatives would be wary about ensconcing such far-reaching invasive laws into the hands of Government Officials, one would think that Libertarians, those haters of Government intrusiveness and the State, would be taking to the ramparts to decry such an expansion of the corrosive powers of the State, but libertarians have this odd way of justifying the use of force by the government against those they don't deem worthy of legal protection.

What these laws are designed to do is to feed the hatred which consumes the Right-Wing and to put fear into the LGBTQ community. To let them know that anyday, someone can complain about them and they are only free at the whim of the bigoted conservative/libertarian/right-wing community.

The Bundy Insurrectionists, In Court, the coddling continues (Updated)

"Those Crazies In Montana Who Say, 'We're Going To Kill ATF Agents Because The U.N.'s Going To Take Over' -- Well, They're Beginning To Have A Case." - Dick Morris, Fox News March 2009
5 members of the Bundy Insurrection at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, refused to enter pleas, during their April 15th Court appearance. The defendants engaged in other right-wing Sovereign Citizen "Tactics", such as demanding the entire 64 page indictment be read out loud and requesting to represent themselves. The presiding Judge entered Not Guilty pleas for them. Cliven Bundy, in a separate Court, also refused to recognize the Court's Authority and did not enter a plea.

First of all, I think the Department of Justice, originally under Eric Holder, and the FBI have done a fantastic job defusing these conservative terrorist incidents and not allowing Faux News and the right-wing internet to incite a full-scale right-wing violent revolution. A overtly violent confrontation would have been used by Faux News and the right-wing internet in all manner of nefarious ways to continue their Quest to Destroy the United States and End the American Dream. However, much of the liberal and leftist coverage of the 2 Bundy Stand-offs was focused on the juxaposition of Law Enforcement response to minorities/Occupy protests and the Bundy Armed Rebellions. 

While this was valid criticism, it ignored two more salient points; First, any right-wing protest no matter how ridiculous (e.g. The Truckers Ride for the Overthrow of the Government) or unlawful (e.g. Republicon Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz marching on the White House demanding the Lynching of President Obama) is going to receive widespread positive media coverage from the Mainstream Corporate Owned Media. It's just the nature of the beast and while it needs to be understood there is no point crying about it. Second, and more importantly, violence especially by the Government, should always be the last option, if possible.

Thus, I was in favor of letting the Bundy Buffoons self-exile at the Malheur Refuge, because of it's remoteness. Of course, within 1 months' time the assembled gaggle of right-wing domestic terrorists had despoiled the area with vast trenches of shit. A ripe analogy for what conservatives have been doing to the country for the past 35 years.

But, following their lawful arrest and detention such open contempt for a Court's Authority would not and should not be tolerated. Judges, in my Cook County District Courthouse, would rightly hold the accused felons in contempt but, when dealing with right-wing domestic terrorists, the velvet glove does not cover the iron fist of justice but the gentle fluffing hand of Nevada State Representative Michelle Fiore and multiple other elected Republican officials.
"We really need to get these patriots released," Fiore told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "We want to make sure our patriots know we stand with them."
An elected official standing with those who've taken up arms against the Government is the definition of Republicon Patriotism. But, Fiore is not alone as Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer also gave aid and comfort to the Bundy Insurrectionists prior to their arrest. These two and the many other Republicon officials apparently feel emboldened enough to ignore their real Oaths of Office for the fake ones like the ones taken by the Oathbreakers.

Unlike the standard member of the Trumpenproletariat, the Bundy Insurrectionists, their Sovereign Citizen fellow-travelers, the III Inchers, the Oathbreakers, the Unconstituional Sheriffs of America, and other unaligned right-wing domestic terrorists have been aching to murder liberals, women, and minorities in order to Make America Great Again.

The Trumpenproletariat is facing is the gross naked evil of Cut-Throat Capitalism and want to lash out. The 1% have shredded the Social Contract and no longer view the white American Worker any different than a Worker in Indonesia or Guatemala, i.e. an expense to be kept as cheap as possible and replaced as soon as it becomes old, broken, or too expensive.

A Crafty Demagogue like Trump has seen this and stoked the anger, but the Bundy Clan have used it in a different but, classic way. The Bundy's were criminals long before their 2014 Insurrection. But, with the myth of the self-made Western Rancher, and Sage Brush Rebellion infrastructure to fall back on, they received wide-spread support from all the fetid corners of the feverish right-wing.

"The draconian, authoritarian way that the government is going after Mr. Bundy is obviously to try and scare him, and scare ranchers, and send a message which is utterly un-American and not consistent with a free people," Andrew Napolitano, April 2014, Future Supreme Court Justice under President Donald Trump.
Therefore, the criminals felt smugly self-assure they could travel to a fellow conservative terrorist, Sheriff Palmer at their leisure. It ended in multiple arrests and the death of Robert LaVoy Finicum when he attempted to kill Oregon State Troopers and FBI Agents trying to detain him.

It's a pitiful thing. The Bundy Insurrectionists may consider themselves Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn or Nelson Mandela, but their closer analogy is members of Vice Lord Nation. The Bundy's and their fellow criminals have staked out terrority, threaten law enforcement with guns and violence, ignore laws, recruit fellow criminals, and put innocent bystanders living in those communities at risk.

The Bundy's and members of other Right-Wing Organizations have declared War on the American Government and should be treated exactly the same way as the detainees in Guantanamo Bay.


Updated:
Surprise, the Bundy Domestic Terrorists were present for at least 2 months prior to their Armed Insurrection, trying to strong arm Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich, intimidating the local residents, committing various crimes, and apparently trying to form a shadow government to perform some crude Coup and establish a right-wing patriot state.

Senator Mike Lee fancies himself a medieval Polish Nobleman

Pudgy Utah Republicon Mike Lee has been successful in using a procedural hold in the US Senate to keep $250 million in Federal Relief from the lead-poisoned residents of Flint, Michigan.

This is not surprising coming from Mike Lee, one of the scummiest sychophants in the Senate today. Lee ran for Senate on a platform of repealing Child Labor Laws, so he has no problem with children being harmed and sees protecting children as Unconstitutionala function outside the scope of the United States Government. This, of course, also serves the right-wing mantra that government doesn't work.

Since, he's been in office Lee's "highlights" include; proudly marching on the White House with Sarah Palin, Senator Rafael 'Ted' Cruz, Larry Klayman, and a 100 conservative domestic terrorists under the banner of the confederate flag, the symbol of the worst arch-traitors in American History, to demand the arrest and lynching of President Obama.

He's also used the arcane procedural rules of the Senate to deliberately sabotage the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Lee demanded a constitutional amendment making it possible to raise taxes only when approved by 2/3rds of both the House and Senate and threatened if it wasn't approved "in his framework" he'd shut down the Government. When 'Ted' Cruz did shut down the government in 2013, Lee continued to enjoy all the financial perks of his office, "I’m working," Republican Senator Mike Lee. "I’ll continue to be paid*."

When he began his hold Lee stated, "If we create a precedent that suggests any time there’s a significant problem with a locally operated utility that operates entirely intrastate. I would ask, where’s the stopping point? What’s the limit?" - this is basically the same argument Lee touted after Hurricane Sandy and Republicons were screeching during Hurrucane Katrina, i.e. 'FYIGM*!'

Of course, Lee sang a different tune when it came to Federal Disaster Relief for Utah in 2011. In that case it was 'Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!'

It's no mystery why Lee is withholding the funds from the residents of Flint, Michigan; they are poor, mainly black, and they've been screwed by a Republican Governor. This is the essence of Republicon governance. Steal money, kill the poor, and use every piece of "legal" recourse to ensure those people stay screwed.

But, in using byzantine Senate procedure to withhold the money in the Energy Mordenization Bill, Lee is repeating history as farce. I wrote previously about the Polish Sejm and liberum veto,
The Golden Freedom, which the magnates defended with every bit of chicanery and power they commanded, was the freedom of the few to oppress the many... - James A. Michener's, Poland
In the novel Poland, Michener describes how the, "incredible liberum veto, by which one nobleman in the Seym (parliament) of hundreds could negate and prorogue the entire work of the Seym by merely crying, 'I oppose!', was a major cause of Poland's disappearance from the map of Europe". 

The Republicons are not interested the United States or 99% of its' citizens, what they are interested in and busily working towards, is the re-feudalization of America. They are in office to destroy the federal government, or more specifically those parts of the federal government which aid the poor and working class, and to create a Wage Slavery State in which every man, woman, and child is held at the whim of the Rich and shackled in Corporate Bondage.

* Fuck You I Got Mine.

Republicans Use Debt as a Weapon (Updated)

"We are enslaving future generations, our children and grandchildren to debt that we are irresponsibly putting on their credit card," Arkansas State Senator Terry Rice said, arguing that accepting federal funding as part of the expansion would add to the national debt.
Update:
Time Magazine has dutifully put out the right-wing Fear the Debt by claiming every American owes $43,000. Over at Lawyers, Guns, and Money the correctly identifies why Time has done this, in the post The Real Motivation of the Pain Caucus
Time Magazine made the smart decision to put its dumb cover story about the national debt behind a paywall. The premise — the national debt is like household debt and should be considered as if it’s apportioned equally to every U.S. resident — is stupid on its face. But Matt O’Brien has read the thing because nobody else will, and it’s even worse than its premise. When you’re considering a flat tax, it’s not because you care about the national debt, it’s because you think wealth needs to be massively redistributed upwards, with the debt as the tissue-thin pretext.
From time to time Republicans trot out Fix The Debt but, like the 3-card Monte Dealers they are, Republicans never worry about debt when they are in charge of Government. Debt is a shell game Republicons use to distract their duped drones in order to continue their plans of slashing the social safety net and transferring Trillions of Dollars of future Americans Wealth upwards to their Plutocratic Masters.

This is not a new weapon but, like all the Moldy Chestnuts/ Zombie Lies the Republicons promulgate, a new batch of vicious conservatives emerges to pick up the torch to burn the Social Contract.

Back in 2010 as President Obama submitted his plan to help the country escape the Republicon Recession of 2007, the House GOP got together and trotted out the same old sky is falling, Fix The Debt chicanery,
These unsustainable debt and deficit burdens were not imposed upon us by some outside force, they are created by the choice to grow the federal government and spend at unprecedented levels.
Reflecting on his own coming of age in a time of economic turmoil, Ronald Reagan said, “To be young in my generation was to feel that your future had been mortgaged out from under you, and that's a tragic mistake we must never allow our leaders to make again.”
Today, our leaders are again making the tragic choice to mortgage our children’s future.  But there is an alternative, and over the next two days we will share with you how controlling spending, reforming our social safety net programs and lifting the crushing burden of debt will spur job creation and put us back on a sustainable fiscal and economic path.
Invoking the rotted corpse of Zombie Reagan and his Voodoo Economics is a given but, always worth laughing at, since Ronnie Raygun and Daddy Bush ran up $4 Trillion dollars of National Debt in the 1980's, which famously hamstrung President Bill Clinton, and along with the 1994 Republicon Contract on America gave us the worst elements of the Clinton Economy; i.e. The Budget Surplus.

When the Republicons stole the 2000 election, they made their first order to run the deficits back up, steal the Surplus, and pile more Debt upon the American People. Shadow President Dick Cheney in 2002 observed, "Reagan proved deficits don't matter."

Of course, by 2010, Jeb??? Henserling and Paul90X Ryan conveniently left out wherein they and the Republicon Party ran up Trillions in Debt with their foolish and callous taxcut-and-spending and military adventurism. Most dramatically illustrated by the 5 Trillion dollars of debt the Republicons added to National Deficit with their criminal misadventure in Iraq, the open-ended burden treating our wounded Veterans and their families will cost in the next 25-50 years under the dunder-headed leadership of W(orst POTUS in History) and the evil, criminal agenda of War Criminal Shadow President Cheney.

But, Republicons never take responsibility for their actions, they Just Do and let future generations sort out the mess. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality," - Karl Rove.

Thus, when Republicons are in power massive deficit spending is undertaken usually focused on the military and overseas adventurism, but when the Democratic Party is elected to the Congress or Presidency Fixing the Debt! and slashing Spending for the Social Safety Net becomes the only thing a responsible government can do. 

It derailed President Obama during his struggle with the Domestic Terrorists in the Republicon Party. The vicious use of Fix the Debt! to crush the American People was vividly illustrated by Paul90X Ryan's Path to Penury budget during the 2012 election, correctly called Ludicrous and Cruel by Paul Krugman. Of course, as with every action by the Republicon Party the Fix the Debt rhetoric serves their overarching agenda of stealing Social Security, defunding Medicare, and transferring wealth up their Plutocratic Owners, the 1%. It's the raison d'etre for the modern Republicans.

Much of this is predicated upon the fact that the holders of debt are always incredibly wealthy members of the 1%. "Some people call you the elites... I call you my base," - W(orst) addressing his Moneyed Masters.

As such, according to Republican Orthodoxy, Debt Holders must be made whole before the business of government can continue. If this means using the IMF to extract blood money from impoverished Nations to Vulture Capitalists who buy up their debt on the global market, fine. If it means bailing out Casino Hedge Fund Managers who made bad bet upon bad bet in the rigged housing market, building up towers upon foundations of shit until the whole edifice collapsed then so be it.

The Rich need always to be made whole and the Republicons stalk and slice up the Poor and Working Class in order to accomplish it. This is what the Republicons always do when they assume office. Ronnie Raygun's massive deficit spending, W(orst)'s blundering and destabilizing of the Middle East, and his scheme to swindle Social Security right before the Republican Recession of 2007 are designed to build up massive levels of Debt which the Republicans fully intend to extract from the American People.

Trump and Cruz Voters are The Republican Party

"Commie Faggot! Commie Faggot!" - McCain/Palin Voter in 2008 / "You goddamn Communist N*gger-lover!" - Trump Voter 2016 and screamed by every conservative from 1948 to 2016.
There is a belief, the Republican Party has been begging the media to advance that the Trump Supporter is some new and here-to-before unseen Wild Reactionary. But, in much the same way the Media clings to the Both Sides Do It bullshit rhetoric, the assertion that these people aren't the typical Republican voter is false. Trump's supporters are the Republican Party of 2016. Those voting for Trump (and/or Cruz) are Conservatives. Their spittle-flecked chants have been heard at every Republican rally since 1948. And they want what Republicans have always wanted; Societal Dominance.
"This is a movement," Trump exulted last August during a campaign speech in Nashville, Tennessee. "I don’t want it to be about me."
Whatever Trump is and desires is almost irrelevant at this point. Whether he really believes women should be punished for abortions, or if he really plans to invade Mexico, round up a million slaves, and make them build us a wall, or if he will order the military to murder children, rape men, and torture women in an orgy of war crimes doesn't matter. As he said this is a Movement; and once a movement is set in motion it will continue in motion unless some other force acts upon it. And while there is a general feeling Canadian-born Raffie Cruz is more dangerous of the two, because of his megalomaniacal theocratic ambitions, either one will destroy America because of the (un)holy terror they will allow to be unleashed.

The rabid reactionary right-wing believes with Trump/Cruz as President they will be returned to the place of power and authority, even if it's an ephemeral power only over the most marginalized people in the Nation.

What we are seeing is the final transformation of the Republican Party. The Party Elites, who promised a Re-birth of the Nation to get the votes of angry bigots, in order to pass tax cuts is about to complete it's change into the Party of White Power Racists, which will promise the upper class tax cuts to keep them on board.

Update:
One additional thought, which was spurred by Steve M. over at No More Mister Nice Blog where he asks why we haven't seen Trumpian Riots yet. It's one thing for the White Power Tea Party Republicans to kick out an Eric Cantor in Virginia or to nominate a Sharron Angle for Senate in Nevada, but when it comes to the Presidency the Republican Elites have much more sway and they very well may take the nomination from Herr Trump.

If they do engage in some convention misdirection, I believe the Republican Party, that cadre of racist bigots, right-wing religious fanatics, conservative child molestors, and Vulture Capitalists will do as they as always have; dutifully line up and vote for the candidate (whomever it may be) with the saintly R after his name.

Dennis Hastert, Don Blakenship and the coddling of Conservative Criminals

Always note that Privilege means "Private Law". If you are rich, white, and conservative you can expect to get away with the most heinous of crimes, usually followed by a vigorous defense by the right-wing media. Additionally, you can always expect Republicans to rattle their sabres about how they are "tough on crime". But, it's as hollow and false as their so-called patriotism.

Republicans are weak on crime when said crime is committed by a member of the Right-Wing Club. Obviously, if the alleged criminal is poor, liberal, or a minority then expect conservatives to gleefully support violence, torture, and extra-judicial murder.

Dennis Hastert, abused at least 5 youths, during his tenure as a High School Coach. When "Coach" Hastert took over the Speakership of the Republican Party he gladly oversaw the impeachment of President Bill Clinton for a consensual adult sexual relationship. Hypocrite is too generous and kind of a word. Child Molesting Sexual Predator is more fitting. To which should be added convicted criminal.

The need for hush money to pay off his victims explains Hastert's Prairie Parkway real estate shenanigans, which netted "Coach" several million dollars from the $207 million federal grant he secured from President George W. Bush. Hastert apparently has been engaging in various criminal financial schemes to fund his hush money.

But, conservatives loved Hastert cause he undermined Democracy, with his "Hastert Rule". Even after the allegations began to surface and the heinous details emerged, conservatives took to the ramparts to denounce the extortion, because that's the "crime" they really cared about, and to rail about Big Bad Obama and his LIEbral Government "illegally" intruding on the private financial affairs of Dennis Hastert.

Don Blakenship, the Chief Executive Officer of Massey Energy, has spent decades buying Republicans. Because as a rich man he needed the ability to flout the law with impudence and be assured he would never be held accountable. Blakenship's purchase paid off when in 2004, a West Virginia Judge whom Blakenship owned ruled in his favor in vacating a 2002, $50 million dollar verdict against Massey Energy. So, egregious was this invocation of Privilege that the case went to the Supreme Court in 2009.
In the West Virginia case, Justice Kennedy wrote, there was “a serious, objective risk of actual bias.” Chief Justice Brent D. Benjamin, the beneficiary of the coal executive’s spending, twice joined the majority in 3-to-2 decisions throwing out the $50 million jury verdict against the company, Massey Energy. 
In a series of decisions rejecting disqualification motions, Justice Benjamin said there was no objective reason to suggest he could not rule fairly in the case. 
Justice Kennedy said he did not doubt Justice Benjamin’s sincerity. “We do not question his subjective findings of impartiality and propriety,” Justice Kennedy wrote of the state court’s chief justice in Monday’s decision, Caperton v. A. T. Massey Coal Company, No. 08-22. “Nor do we determine whether there was actual bias.” 
The plaintiffs in the fraud case, several small mining companies, won the $50 million verdict in 2002, persuading a jury that they had been driven out of business by fraud committed by Massey. That company’s chief executive, Don L. Blankenship, spent about $3 million in 2004 to defeat an incumbent justice, Warren R. McGraw, a Democrat, and to elect his opponent, Mr. Benjamin, a Republican who is now the court’s chief justice.
On April 5, 2010 an explosion at the Upper Big Branch Mine owned by Massey Energy Resulted in a disaster which killed 29 coal miners. During Blakenship's 10 year reign as CEO of Massey Energy safety regulations were systematically ignored and undone in the pursuit of profits (Mine owner ran up serious violations, 495 violations last year alone.) Blakenship was just found guilty of one count of conspiring to violate mine safety regulations. Of course, deregulation is a core plank of the Republican Party. And predictably this gets zero coverage on Faux News while the only chatter in the epistemically closed right-wing internet is to decry the travesty of justice of convicting Blakenship.

Update:
Josh Marshall at TPM points out that when child molesting Dennis Hastert ascended to be Republican Speaker of the House during the right-wing Impeachment of Bill Clinton, the entire Republican leadership involved in those proceeding were all deep into sordid, tawdry, or criminal sex scandals. But, IOKIYAR.

Biological Determinism and Conservative Bigotry

If the misery of our poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin. - Charles Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle
There are certain racist ideas which bubble up from time to time as a new generation of right-wing bigots come to the forefront. I received this comment from a self-described conservative:


Glen Filthie said...
The average black IQ is 85. Mohammed Ali had an IQ of 79 which psychologists consider to be mild mental retardation.

As a conservative and a race-realist...I know there are exceptions to the rule - but they ARE the exception.

For the record I wish that you were right and I was wrong, but the facts are what they are.

Beware going to Trump Rallies

"I've hurt you and I wish to go on... hurting you." - Conservative Idol Khan Noonien Singh
Current Conservative idealogy is based on the infliction of pain. Conservatives want to hurt people. They are blinded by Rage at their economic condition and falling standard of living and have absorbed the right-wing media propaganda that steak-eatin' young bucks and mexican rapists are to blame for their woes.

They lustfully cheer the murder of unarmed black americans. They whole-heartedly approve the pepperspraying and beating of leftist protesters. They applaud the demonization of muslims and mexicans. They push legislation to disenfranchise members of the LGBTQ community. They support the destruction of Unions and the theft of Teachers pensions. They vote to eliminate medicaid, Obamacare, and Social Security even though conservatives disportionally benefit from those federal programs.

In short, they want those whom they've been conditioned to believe have stolen the American Dream, to be hurt. There are a myriad number of reasons for conservative rage; belief in biological determinism and right-wing propaganda efforts top the list. However, normally Republican politicans don't stoke the rage directly; they appeal to it sideways and make obique veiled references to "the other" while allowing Hate Talk Radio, Faux News, and the right-wing internet to fan the flames of violence and do the heavy lifting of conditioning.

But, in this election the savvy Donald Trump emerged and threw the Republican gentleman's agreement out when he told conservatives to unleash their Id, to indulge in violence, that he will pay their legal fees, while he bemoaning the fact you can't just shoot the other anymore. So, begins the violence at Trump Rallies.
  • Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski has been charged with Battery after he man-handled a Breitbart "reporter". I'm sure it was a shock for the young lady as working for Breitbart she hates all the right people and was no doubt at the Trump Rally to give his Make America Great Again fascism a glowing review.
  • Matthew Vadum (who wrote in 2012 "Registering them [the Poor] to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals. It is profoundly antisocial and un-American")  tweeted out a threat to protesters that conservatives have millions of guns.
  • The old white male conservative Trump supporter who contected with an elbow strike on a non-violent black man calmly being escorted out of a Trump Rally in North Carolina threatened, "The next time we see him we might have to kill him."
  • Another white male Trump supporter in Cleveland invoked the most infamous Nazi death camp, repeatedly telling protesters to "Got to fucking Auschwitz", while throwing up the Nazi salute.
  • Nazi salutes and white power shouts are ubiquitous at Trump rallies. A older white German immigrant Trump lover threw the Nazi salute up at protesters. Trump Junior then tweeted out the name of Bernie Sanders supporter and claimed she was the one who did it. Until that woman threatened to sue and it was proven to be a fervent Trump fan and little Trump Junior tweeted a 'My bad I got bad info' non-apology apology.
  • PBS, ran a shockingly obtuse story, on a white South Carolina woman sporting white power tattoos all over her exposed arms and neck who claimed for the first time in her life she and her family was campaigning for a political candidate (i.e. Trump).
  • A black active duty Air Force serviceman beat up a protester being escorted out.
  • In the latest incident in Wisconsin, a young white male douche bearded Trump supporter pepper-sprayed a female juvenile who claimed an older gray haired white man groped her. After spraying into a crowd the the man walked off with the smug look of satisfaction at hurting a leftist. But, while blinded with the spray a different older white male Trump supporter yelled, "You goddamn Communist n*gger lover. Get out of here!"
The times change but the American Conservative does not. So, while I agree in protesting Trump and his modern day fascist rallies be aware that conservatives have a longing deep down in their bowels to hurt everyone whom their identify as Left or "the Other" and the Republican Party, which has been feeding this right-wing beast for electoral victories, can no longer restrain them.

So, if you do go to protest Trump, remember the conservatives present are going there praying for a confrontation and are, most likely, armed. And when conservatives walk around with weapons it's not with the hope they won't have to use them, it's with the fervent desire that they will get to use them.

Antonin Scalia just kicked Clarence Thomas off the Bench and promoted Abigail N. Fisher


The admirable, but ultimately tragic and sad career of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas just took another dramatic strange twist as his fellow Justice Antonin Scalia plainly stated blacks can not do well in higher education. On page 67-68, of the 113 page Official Oral Arguments in the newly revisited, Abigail N. Fisher vs. University of Texas case, Scalia has this to say,
There are those who contend that it does not benefit African-­Americans to to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-­advanced school, a less — a slower­-track school where they do well.  
One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas. They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re — that they’re being pushed ahead in — in classes that are too — too fast for them.  
I'm just not impressed by the fact that ­­- that the University of Texas may have fewer. Maybe it ought to have fewer. And maybe some ­­you know, when you take more, the number of blacks, really competent blacks admitted to lesser schools, turns out to be less. And ­­ and I ­­ I don't think it -­­ it ­­- it stands to reason that it's a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible. I just don't think ­...
And that is what Clarence Thomas faced when he went to Yale University. Before becoming a Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas underwent withering racial bigotry at Yale. He was told he didn't belong there, that he was there simply there because of the color of his skin. After getting his JD, Justice Thomas found rampant racism from Law Firms who dismissed his accomplishments as all being owed to Affirmative Action. As Thomas himself recounted,
"I peeled a fifteen-cent sticker off a package of cigars and stuck it on the frame of my law degree to remind myself of the mistake I'd made by going to Yale. I never did change my mind about its value."
In response to this, Thomas did what so many do when faced with bullies, he adopted the language and beliefs of his oppressors and began to advance the agenda of his racist enemies. To congratulate him for his supplication, conservatives set about getting him onto the Supreme Court and rewarded him with a white woman, Ginni, an ultra-conservative woman rife with her own fascist, oppressive, intolerant agenda.

In gratitude, Justice Thomas has gone along as conservatives stole the 2000 election and created a broad category of rights for Corporations, to enforce their owners discriminatory beliefs, to be free of criminal neglect for their actions, and to place them in position to buy the American Democracy.

As to the Abigail Fisher, she's been at this most likely at the behest of some conservative Svengali, since 2012. What's at play here is the plain white power belief that in America if a black person or minority is given a chance, a job, or a college admission it has been taken away from a more deserving white person. Because the reactionary right-wing bigots believe America is a Zero-sum Game. The right-wing calls of reverse-racism have been building for years and now have reached the Supreme Court. The details surrounding Fisher, that by no metric or standard would she have gotten into the University of Texas, are irrelevant. 

It's a chance for right-wing bigots to soothe the anguished cries of undeserving white people. Take Back My Country and Make America Great Again are not even thinly veiled references to a time in American History when undeserving white people were elevated, given jobs, legacy admissions, government support, aid, and assistance simply because of the color of their skin. The only affirmative action White America has ever supported is for unqualified whites.

Conservatives yearn for a time when an ignorant white man was the pinnacle of creation, lauded and revered. This has been the message of Faux News for the last 20 years, and this is the unvarnished message of the 2016 Republican Presidential Campaign. This is the goal of the American Conservative.

When Republicans offer their "thoughts and prayers" they literally care nothing about gun violence and won't do anything about it (Updated)

As the horrific mass shooting in San Bernadino was ending, Republicans once again offered up their "Thoughts and Prayers". And do you know why?

Because that hollow statement amounts to literally nothing. Go into your pharmacy and pay for your prescription with your "thoughts and prayers" and see how many pills you get. After eating at Ruth Chris Steakhouse tell the manager he has your "thoughts and prayers" and leave. Buy Bill O'Reilly's latest dreck-filled fact avoidant book Killing-Jaysus with your thoughts and prayers and see how long it is before Bill-O calls his Faux News secret police on you.

When the NRA endorses a Republican candidate for Office do they send them their "Thoughts and Prayers"? No, the NRA sends them money. Because the NRA knows "Thoughts and Prayers" are worthless and they want something from the candidates they buy.

The NRA has a Golden Ring of Freedom, which are Corporations who have contributed at least $1 million to the NRA, Gun Makers the Freedom Group, Smith & Wesson, Ruger, and Springfield Armory, as well as 6 Firearm related Corporations are in the Golden Ring of Freedom.

And so, the Gun Makers have been funneling massive amounts of blood-soaked money to the NRA and the Republicans get the blood-soaked money from the NRA and they dutifully vote to allow guns anywhere and everywhere. Go see how much the NRA paid for your Congressman because the Republicans have been bought and bought cheaply.

What Republicans have been doing in exchange for the Golden Ring of Freedom money has been to systematically weaken gun regulations, offer protection to the Gun Industry and ensure that gun makers can enjoy massive profits of the death of 30,000 Americans every year with no fear of retribution.

The NRA and Firearm Manufacturers are feeding the money they make off the deaths of thousands back into the political machine to make deaths by guns more likely.

In 2005, George W(orst President Ever) Bush backed by the Republican Controlled House and Senate at the behest of their NRA masters, passed Legislation making Gun Manufacturers immune to Lawsuits for their Negligence.

Wayne LaPierre stated the 2005 law had been the "No. 1 legislative priority of the National Rifle Association". Of course, the NRA "lobbied lawmakers intensely for it". Sickeningly 59 Democrats joined in the House to pass it a vote of 283 to 144. 

Over at Think Progress, Igor Volsky has catalogued how much the NRA paid the Republican Party to do literally nothing about the flood of guns and the unsurprising resultant mass shootings in America.

We have let an insane hard-core of gun worshiping fanatics, egged on by a blood-soaked Industry fronted by cowardly chicken shit cynical Lobbyists* in the NRA control the gun debate in this Nation. Hence we are flooded with firearms and we have daily mass shootings.

And the Republican Party with their hollow thoughts and prayers constantly let's the American People know they have nothing to offer them and will do nothing about it.
*- Here's some neat facts about Wayne LaPierre and David Keene. LaPierre spent the late 60's and early 70's going to college. As soon as he got his Master's he went to work as a DC Lobbyist. David Keene started work in Washington DC in the late 1960's working for noted Republican criminal Spirio Agnew.  The Leaders of the NRA are Typical Conservatives. They never had a real job. Never worked for a living. Never served a Day in Uniform. Chicken Hawk Cowards who skirted Vietnam to spend 40 years as lobbyists in Washington DC. Just your Average American Conservative.
Update:
Fortunately, the shooting in San Bernadino might motivate Republicans because these gun-wielding killers have scary names Sayeed R. Farouk and Tashfeen Malik, unlike gentle-loner and conservative hero Robert Lewis Dear. So, the only gun control we might get in this country will come in the form of making it illegal for brown and black people to have guns just as the Founding Fathers intended.

Update 2:
On MSNBC Morning Joke, Republican Congressman Max Thornberry of Texas, whose been in office for 20 years, pounded home that Republicans aren't going to do anything about Guns. Eventhough they are the common element in 355 mass shooting in 2015 thus far. Thornberry played the game about the term "assault rifle" and semantics about gun parts that gun nuts bust out to confuse the situation and offered up the canard that Laws won't stop gun violence. As we all know since Laws can't stop crime therefore the only option is to abolish all laws.

What is needed, and what has always been needed, is the Will to Act. The Will to enforce Gun Laws. It's not that the Will is Lacking or that a large segment of Soceity is opposed, it's that the Will of the American People is actively being thrwarted by the Republican Party, who are wholly owned by the blood-soaked NRA.

Another Mass Shooting, Guns will Destroy Us

"We're living in a country, a free country, where people have a right to express their Second Amendment rights." NRA President David Keene. 
12 people are apparently dead with another dozen people wounded in San Bernadino California as 3 camo-wearing, tactically-outfiited, heavily armed men became the latest people to express their Holy Second Amendment Rights. The attack possibly targeted the Inland Regional Center, a free clinic for the disabled.

Does it really matter why? There is nothing to write about this other than these incidents will continue because Gun Law Policy in this country is controlled by a hard nut of gun-humping fanatics, who will never allow any laws whatsoever to contain/control guns. We have ceded our lives to the whims of short-dicked maniacs who absolutely consider guns and gun rights more precious human beings. These Mass Shooting are the Ultimate Expression of White Privilege.

Now, the internet dance will begin again the Gun-Humping Maniacs who will descend upon every internet news story and scream and scream and scream until everyone gets tired of trying to rationally debate and Americans return to their daily routine until the next mass shooting* at which point the dance begins again.
 *- Mass Shootings are occurring on average more than once per day.
American Society is being held hostage to the NRA, gun nuts, and the Gun Manufactuering Industry whom absolutely love these mass murder events because it drives up sales and makes them millions in profits.

And you never know when some Faux News-fueled, anti-Obamacare white conservative domestic terrorist is going to Take His Country Back and go off and slaughter some of America's Enemies in a Planned Parenthood Clinic, a Yoga Studio, or a Movie Theater.

If we had a functioning Government in this Nation each of these shooting would be investigated by Congress at the same level the Republicans are investigating Benghazi, Obamacare, and Planned Parenthood. But, we do not we have a Republican Government. And the Republican Government's role and goal is crush the American People and grind us down into obedient, docile, broken Wage Slaves, willing to accept whatever crumbs the Nietzcheian UberClass deems us worthy to receive.

So, as you leave for work or to return home just ask yourself is today the day some gun-totting madman decides he wants to smoke a cigarette inside a diner, or is today the day some Second Amendment Hero decides he's going to strike a blow at Obama's Tyranny.

A smoking Bushmaster, overwhelmingly the symbol of these massacres, will be used to etch Sic Transit Gloria into history when people wonder why America ceased to be.

Conservatives wished Robert Dear killed more people at Planned Parenthood

Now, that a few days have passed Faux News has picked up the White Man's Burden and begun the slow and steady justification of the Domestic Terror Attack on Planned Parenthood.

Right-Wingers follow a set pattern in their process of justifying these incidents of right-wing violence. And groups who ostensibly are not supposed to be right or left are always shown to be front groups for the advancement of white conservative power, because there is no pushback by the Pro-Police #Bluelivesmatter, who should conceivably be upset a Police Officer was killed, but in reality is just another right-wing group dedicated to pushing for white power.

First is misdirection, the conservative internet was awash in bullshit claiming this was a bank robbery and had nothing to do with Planned Parenthood. Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger was brought on CNN to demand Planned Parenthood apologize while the terrorist attack was still unfolding. Afterwards, the Media aided conservatives by playing, 'Oh goodness we don't know what the motivations might be...' for 2 days.

Next comes accusation. Cuban Refugee and potential Communist Infiltrator Ted Cruz jumped in on Jim Hoft's claim that Robert Lewis Dear is actually a "Transgendered leftist activist". The proof of this is a claim by Hoft, is that Dear is registered "female" on his voter registration in North Carolina. But, this tactic is a dual-edged sword because the Conservatives whole-heartedly agree with murdering people who do not adhere to their rigid ideology of hatred, oppression and intolerance.

So, then comes endorsement. Bill O'Reilly when talking about the attacks on Planned Parenthood, devoted his talk show intro to justifying his demonization and call to kill Doctor George Tiller and accentuated words like deserved while Bill-O echoed Robert Lewis Dear by claiming PP is in the "baby parts business".

Meanwhile, the entire conservative media infrastructure is playing the tired old tune, 'Biased liberal media! Biased liberal Media!' Conservative Power must always be served. And conservatives are more than willing to sacrifice anyone, even their so-called revered heroes (Veterans and Cops) to advance their Agenda. Toma over at Sick Horses captured the tweets of Republican Presidential Candidates which showed a remarkable lack of acknowledgment, let alone condemnation, of the Right-Wing Domestic Terror Attack.

And this whole right-wing kabuki dance has one goal in mind, to allow conservatives to wash their hands of any guilt and allow the right-wing wurlitizer to go back into cranking up the conservative domestic terrorists for their next attack. It's the same pattern they follow in murders of black people, although in those cases conservatives viciously slander the dead African-American victim (even if it's a child) with a non-stop smear campaign to justify the murder.

Because what Faux News is doing is letting every liberal, minority, woman, or LBGTQ person in America know that it's open season on them. Faux News is torquing up their pack of "lone wolves" and letting them loose on society. And after a right-wing white terrorist murders you, Faux News and the Conservative Internet will celebrate your death and call for more.

Unlike Benghazi, we can never know the motives of the Planned Parenthood Gunman nonetheless, Republicans support the Terrorist Attack (Updated)

Oh wait yes we can!

Robert Lewis Dear made a partial statement when taken into custody last night proclaiming "no more baby parts" as his hostage taking, act of terror, stand-off was finally ended. 3 brave people died another 9 were wounded.

What motivated Dear to leave his North Carolina home and drive all the way to Colorado Springs to attempt a mass murder terrorist attack?

Wouldn't it be just if the deaths of 3 brave Americans at Colorado Springs received the same level of scrutiny and 13 Congressional Investigations as the deaths of 4 brave Americans at Benghazi?

But, then who are the Republican Congress going to investigate and indict? Themselves? Because Jason Chaffetz and the Republicans who feverntly lied and dutifully tried to manufacture controversy over bogus videos are culpable and complicit in this incident. Would Jason Chaffetz also have to admit that his feeble lies motivated Dear?

Would Adam Kinzinger and the Republican Congress have to admit so-called "barbaric videos" can in fact motivate a true believer to commit a terrorist attack, after they spent the last 3 years telling Americans that videos could never do that? Would the Republicans have to issue arrest warrants for David Daleiden, one of their Heroic anti-abortion Propagandists? Because as tbogg notes,
David Dalieden didn’t pull the trigger — he just showed Robert Lewis Dear where he needed to aim the gun.
Additionally, the absolute silence from the Republican Candidates for President is deafening and eye-opening. The Republicans absolutely agree with the attack on the Planned Parenthood but can't figure out a way to thread the needle of supporting the attack which took the lives of 3 brave Americans, including a Police Officer, whom Republicans always claim to support and love but, are willing to sacrifice to advance their evil agenda.

Nonetheless, Robert Lewis Dear is now be enshrined in the Pantheon of Conservative Second Amendment Heroes. Dear did what so many conservatives fantasize about but lack the intestinal fortitude to undertake.

The thing is conservatives are cowards and Republicans are liars. They lack the courage of their convictions. If they truly believed that Planned Parenthood is murdering millions of babies as they so often shout then why aren't they storming the facilities? Why aren't they attacking PP facilities like the ISIS fighters they truly wish they had the balls to be?

It is because they don't believe their own rhetoric. Despite the rending of their garments and the gnashing of their teeth and the beating of their breasts. What Republicans see in Planned Parenthood is an unending source of political propaganda, which they tap into time and time again for votes, to advance their true agenda of Intolerance and Oppression.

Now, as in the case of Robert Lewis Dear, a conservative domestic terrorist swallows enough of the right-wing Republican rhetoric and believes enough of the deceptive bogus video evidence from David Daleiden and goes off on a killing spree. But, there's enough Republicans willing to obfuscate, lie and distort (as Adam Kinzinger of Illinois did when he was quick to note, while the attack and hostage situation was unfolding, Dear "had taken a legitimate disagreement with the practice") to muddy the waters, until the public tires of the situation and returns to their daily routine and forgets the Republicans in Congress are responsible for this incident.

While conservatives proclaim amongst themselves, 'This had nothing to do with Planned Parenthood it was a bank robbery gone wrong, move along,' and go back to their routine of "catapulting the propaganda" until another so-called lone wolf in the right-wing pack of domestic terrorists, easily gets guns and murders more liberals, women, minorities, and anyone else so they can Make America Great Again.

Update:
The Republican candidates finally got around to responding, and we've learned the two other victims identities; a Iraq War Veteran and a 36 year old Mother of Two. But, don't worry because the victims identities will not dissuade the Conservative Domestic Terrorists.

A Conservative Domestic Terrorist Attack on Planned Parenthood but, remember this Fundamental Truth; Blacks are Criminals, Muslims are Terrorists, Whites are Neither. (Updated)

Note: I began this post before the white male Terrorist Attack on Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. As I type this, the right-wing christian white male domestic terrorist armed with an AK-47, is holed up in the lobby of the Planned Parenthood apparently having been confronted by Police Officers, whom he attempted to murder after they disrupted his plan to commit another conservative domestic terrorist attack.
Chicago releases video footage of the murder of Laquan McDonald by Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014, a totally unjustified shooting and the right-wing reaction is to deflect and justify the shooting. There is literally no killing of a black person that Faux News and conservative will not defend and support.

A foundational building block of Conservatism is white people are Real America, and every advance by minorities is taken from the American Zero-Sum Pie, reducing the power/influence/undeserved status of white people. It's why conservatives don't push back when Donald Trump tweets out Neo-Nazi Propaganda claiming blacks kill 85% of Americans.

When "whites" commit crimes it's because of some demonic outside force, e.g. Video Games and Violent Movies (which is code for Hollywood and Jews), naughty lyrics in rap music (dastardly black culture influence), mental illness, liberal schooling, and so forth. Thus, we can conclude the virtuous white person was corrupted. Whereas, Muslims are Terrorists because of their religion and Blacks are criminals because of their culture and upbringing. That they are impure due to their inherent nature.

That Muslims are Terrorists/Blacks are Criminals is a fundamental core belief of conservatives. It's why conservatives are so ready to accept every manufactured Faux News "criminal" scandal of the Obama Presidency. Barack Obama is ipso facto a criminal based on his blood, skin color, and upbringing.

Many right-wing institutions, books, toxic radio, and conservative news sites exist to defend and advance this narrative. Conservative react to every shooting by referencing Chicago, as though that is the only place in the United States affected by gun violence. Faux News and conservatives justify every shooting of a black person by Police, and every incident of right-wing rage (i.e. Cliven Bundy Insurrection, The Dylann Roof Terrorist Attack in South Carolina) is in reality the fault of President Obama.

Conservatives don't call the criminal incidents of white male rage "terrorism" because they fundamentally agree with the actions. Now, right-wingers may denounce the attacks but more often than not they obliquely justify the action by denouncing a tangential or unrelated issue, such as blaming government regulations for the murder of Eric Garner in Long Island instead of blaming the white police officer applying a choke hold for a business offense.

Domestic Terrorism by conservatives has been on the rise since President Obama's inauguration and will continue until he's out of office. At that time either the conservative domestic terror sleeper cells will go dormant or they will pivot towards misogyny and continue their campaign of violence against America.

Update 1:
The right-wing domestic terrorist surrendered to Law Enforcement. One Police Officer and One citizen have died from his attack. Hopefully, none of the others wounded by this conservative criminal will succumb to their wounds. Now, all that remains is for Faux News and Republicans to minimize this incident and deflect as much blame onto President Obama and Planned Parenthood as possible.

Seriously, Congressman Adam Kinzinger was brought onto CNN to demand the Director of Planned Parenthood apologize, justify the shooters actions because of the "barbaric videos" conservatives have allegedly seen and then proclaim if the shooting was at Planned Parenthood it's because of mental illness.

Update 2:
Colorado Springs is a hotbed of conservative insanity with the Air Force Academy and Focus on the Family being located there. But, no doubt the recent lie-a-thon by Congress, especially Congressman Jason Chaffetz and all the other bloated fat ass white Republican men attacking Planned Parenthood with outright false manufactured information convinced this right-wing domestic terrorist he had to do something.

Update 3:
This is the second mass shooting by a crazed white male gunman in Colorado Springs inside a month. Just 4 weeks earlier Noah Harpham, paraded around with his M-16 brandishing the weapon, his neighbor called 911 only to be informed snidely that Colorado has Open-Carry Laws before Harpham murdered 3 people and was gunned down himself.

#BlackLivesMatter protesters targeted and shot by Conservatives in Minneapolis (Updated)

Back in July, I pointed out that the Conservative Media Machine was preparing to target and destroy the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The summer and early autumn witnessed the declaration by Faux News that #BlackLivesMatter was a Terrorist Organization and the right-wing incestuous internet sucked in the emissions and dutifully regurgitated it to their conservative drones.

Well, the Summer of demonization has moved into the Autumn of outright violence,
Five protesters were shot late Monday night near the Black Lives Matter encampment at the Fourth Precinct police station in north Minneapolis, according to police. 
Those who were shot sustained non-life-threatening injuries, said police spokesman John Elder in a statement. 
Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter, said “a group of white supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights.” 
One of the three counterdemonstrators wore a mask, said Dana Jaehnert, who had been at the protest site since early evening. 
When about a dozen protesters attempted to herd the group away from the area, Noor said, they “opened fire on about six protesters,” hitting five of them. Jaehnert said she heard four gunshots. 
The shootings occurred at 10:45 p.m. on Morgan Avenue N. about a block north of the precinct station.
Not, that this will soften the right's position on #Blacklivesmatter. In fact, I would predict most conservative sites will proclaim the BLM protestors have been asking for it, or they threatened the White Supremacists, while Alex Jones and his Acolytes declare this to be a False Flag Operation. And Conservatives will comfortably slide right back into their unrestrained bigotry and rabid racism.

When BLM began to protest Bernie Sanders many liberals and Bernie Bros pouted BLM should be protesting at Republican Rallies. I often pointed out black people were too smart to do this because they knew at best they would be forcibly removed and at worst, beaten, imprisioned or killed. In fact, conservatives and every Republican running for President are quite comfortable with Polcie Officers killing black people because they believe being black is prima facie evidence of being a criminal.

Now, on the heels of Donald Trump's White Power Supporters beating a single #BlackLivesMatter protester and then Trump and others in his campaign justifying it, we now have this shooting in Minnesota. This is not surprising because the majority of Conservatives are racist neo-confederates and white power domestic terrorists.

Update:
As if to prove the Minnesota Republican Party is comprised of racists who support the shooting of 5 BLM protesters by conservative domestic terrorists, the Minnesota GOP 7th Congressional District tweeted out their complaints about the #Negroproblem.
