We are people. We are human and we will not go away.
Author: Raine    Date: 06/07/2017 12:53:26

“To me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country."

That was Eric Trump. He was conceived during his father's first of three marriages. His father also proclaimed that he likes to grab p*ssy.

To say that a segment of our population is not 'even people' is an attempt to dehumanize us. Once, that happens it paves the way for scapegoating and then intimidation. After that? We get justification for violence.

That's what happened in Rwanda. That is what happened during the rise of the Third Reich. The victims of genocide are the result of the violence that began with dehumanization. Violent criminals do not see victims as human. Dehumanization is the 4th of 10 stages of genocide.

Here in the United States under this administration, we are witnessing an attempt to dehumanize Muslims, immigrants, and poor people. Those are just a few examples off the top of my head. In more benign times and situations, I have often called it other-ism. We are now in a new place. These are not benign times. These are not normal times. I have said before and still believe that what we are witnessing will not sustain. His supporters will not go quietly into the night.

Last night the son of the leader of the free world took other-ism to a dangerous level. He openly - and without any remorse - declared almost half of the citizens of this nation inhuman. and for all the shocking things we are inundated with on a weekly, daily (and sometimes hourly) basis, this is the most deeply disturbing one of them all. It's disturbing because it doesn't appear to shock. It's disturbing that the son of the leader of the free world could say something like this with so much comfort and surety. It's disturbing because their supporters will hear it and know they have been given the green light to intimidate.

Buckle up, stay strong, and resist. I'll buy you all a drink and toast to us when this administration is finally revealed to be the criminal organization it is. They will not win. We are still the United States of America and there are more good people, more patriots from all parts of our political spectrum out there than those that would have us become 'Others'.

Morality and goodness will win the day.

In the meantime, stay woke!

and
Raine

Mornin' all..

Anything that anyone says about using the word "deplorable" is now null and void. This entire family needs to be sent to prison.

someone just burped at the PBS live stream!

Guys! Guys! If you are still friends with SSG on the Book of Faces, check out her posts about her eldest's tweets to Cheetolini that she has posted. Apparently, the kid was blocked by Donnie about 3 years ago. When he was but a lad of 13. Trumpkins couldn't handle the sick burns of a teenager.




Comment by Scoopster on 06/07/2017 14:11:49

They've been unlocking the stream paywall for these important hearings lately tho.. just sayin'

Nope the eldest spawn of SSG. SSG has done screen shots of the kid's tweets and posted them to Facebook. They are a hoot and half!

Really glad Rosenstein is laying out how FISA warrant data collection under USC702 works in plain terms, so that even the unwashed masses (i.e. the Administration) can understand it.

Comment by TriSec on 06/07/2017 14:55:45
Well, greetings fellow inhumanoids!

Comment by Raine on 06/07/2017 14:59:34
Rogers refused to confirm or deny the claim that Trump asked him to stop Comey.

Warner made it pretty clear they have evidence.



Comment by Raine on 06/07/2017 15:20:37
Rubio is actually making everyone at the table VERY uncomfortable.

Comment by Scoopster on 06/07/2017 15:24:21
So far the only one with any real balls with questions OR answers in this hearing has been Sen. Wyden.

How so?

Comment by Raine on 06/07/2017 15:45:42
I had to walk away. This is a bit of a mess.

BUT... I will say this -- for all the obstruction -- NOTHING here is helping Trump.

NOTHING.

All of these guys are going out of their way to avoid saying ANYTHING specific in an open session. And the idea that they can't answer questions about their conversation with the administration is total bullshit. It's NOT classified, it's NOT privileged, and even if it was THESE GUYS LOST ALL PRIVILEGE WHEN THE ORANGE DUMBASS STARTED TAKING EVERY POSSIBLE POSITION ON IT ON TWITTER IN PUBLIC VIEW.

Comment by Scoopster on 06/07/2017 16:19:33
Also, fuck John Cornyn with a cornyn-the-cob.

They are now in CYA mode I think -- especially Coats and Rogers.

They don't have a cogent message from the admin because the intel is SO BAD FOR THE ADMIN.



Comment by Raine on 06/07/2017 16:32:25
I think McCain just confirmed the WaPo Coats story as classified and true --

Comment by Scoopster on 06/07/2017 16:33:36
Sen. King: Then why are you not answering?

Adm. Rogers: Because I feel that it is inappropriate.

Sen. King: What you feel isn’t relevant, admiral.

Comment by Raine on 06/07/2017 16:34:18
That was a VERY interesting question from Wyden.

They know what they have.

I would be fine with that too. Did Nixon have the same presidential benies that other presidents have protection and a pension for the rest of his life?
