Trump supporters in action: These are bad people

I can’t criticize enough the skid mark in an IBS sufferers underwear who’s also the Republican nominee for president, but let’s take a look at his supporters;

Like this guy:

Daniel Rowe was apparently enraged at the sight of a black man and a white woman kissing on the streets of Olympia, Wash., Tuesday night. But police say he hid his violent intent behind a stony face until he was close enough to strike. …

Rowe, 32, walked up to the couple and, without warning, yelled a racial slur and lunged with his knife, police say. The blade grazed the woman and went into the man’s hip, according to a news release from Olympia police.

No one involved had life-threatening injuries, but police said Rowe’s behavior grew stranger as officers tried to wrestle him into the back of a patrol car.

“He tells them, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,’” Lower said. “He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest.”

And officers were scratching their heads at Rowe’s comments about fighting Black Lives Matter during a Donald Trump rally. Neither had events planned in Washington this week.

An aberration, some Trump supporters would say? OK, then what about this:

A Massachusetts convoy of Trump supporters drove from Wrentham to Foxboro in their trucks, RVs and SUVs on July 31 and were caught on tape spewing racist epithets and calls for anti-black violence.

“Lynch the ni**ers by their d*cks!” said one driver, according to Winning Democrats, which highlighted a YouTube video of what the “Make America Great Again” convoy talked about on its CB channel when they thought no one was listening.

“Burn every single ni**er!” said another driver.

“All I know is we got plenty of trees to hang ni**ers from,” said another.

The convoy drove five miles from one township to another with their U.S. and Confederate flags waving.

Another aberration? Maybe you didn’t see this:

Donald Trump has a new obsession: comparing Hillary Clinton to Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany. During a Monday speech, Trump denounced the “massive immigration” to Germany under Merkel, for which he blames crime rising “to levels that no one thought would they would ever see.” He followed up this speech with press releases and a hashtag aimed at equating Clinton and Merkel. …

To white nationalist communities that fervently support Trump, Merkel has been a popular villain. Sites like the Daily Stormer, the White Genocide Project, American Renaissance, and The White Resister have posted constantly about her since the Syrian refugee crisis began escalating earlier this year. They have accused her of making a “deliberate attempt to turn Germany from a majority White country into a minority White country.” They have called her a “crazy childless bitch,” an “anti-White traitor,” and “a patron saint of terrorists.” They have asked, in articles about Merkel, “Why would you allow a woman to run a country, unless you were doing it as a joke?” …

It’s yet another example of how Trump is mainstreaming white supremacist sentiment. But by making two women the center of an attack, he is also highlighting the way that antifeminism and white supremacy are tied into each other, since people in alt-right, white supremacist circles like to blame feminism for what they see as the “decline” of the white race.

If you haven’t noticed it already, some people are pointing out that these instances are just examples of Trumpism. That’s a lie. This is the base of the Republican Party. And when the  human urinal cake gets his ass kicked by a girl in November, when you hear the talk about the repudiation of Trumpism, replace that made up word with what it really is: core Republican belief.

And don’t think the losers have integrity and would never do anything like that. It happened when Barack Obama was elected president, and instead of pointing out that people saying “I want my country back” were Republicans, they were deceptively called “Tea Party Patriots.” Don’t believe me?

An Olympic moment tied to civil rights in America

This is a major moment is sports, but the way NBC played it, you would have missed it (I did, and I watched most of last night’s coverage). Here’s why:

With her victory in the 100-meter freestyle, she became the first African-American woman to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming.

The 20-year-old Manuel upset world-record holder Cate Campbell of Australia and tied with Penny Oleksiak of Canada at the Rio Games on Thursday night.

And why has it taken so long for a black woman to win an Olympic swimming medal? Time for a history lesson (click on image below):

Leah kills Jabba at Fox News

This just in:

Roger Ailes, the former GOP political operative who oversaw the creation of the Fox News Channel and turned it into the leading voice of American conservatism, is in final negotiations to leave as CEO of the network amid a budding sexual harassment scandal, according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations. The agreement is expected to be done shortly, the person said.

Although the lawsuit was filed by Gretchen Carlson, it appears that another Fox blonde may have delivered the final blow, according to New York Magazine:

According to two sources briefed on parent company 21st Century Fox’s outside probe of the Fox News executive, led by New York–based law firm Paul, Weiss, [Megan] Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances toward her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox. Kelly, according to the sources, has described her harassment by Ailes in detail.

Kelly’s comments to investigators might explain why the Murdochs are moving so quickly to oust Ailes. As New York reported yesterday, Rupert and sons James and Lachlan, the three top executives at 21st Century Fox, have, according to multiple sources, decided that Ailes needs to be removed. Kelly, who has become something of a feminist icon thanks to her tangles with GOP nominee Donald Trump, is seen by many inside Fox as the future of the network. She’s currently in contract negotiations, and given that Bill O’Reilly has said he’s considering retirement, Fox can’t afford to lose her.

This is how Kelly downed the Hutt:

 

Olivia de Havilland is 100 years old

As she readily admitted to Vogue, people thought she was dead:

“I have the idea that anyone who has ever heard my name has the distinct impression that I was put under the sod years ago just before they buried Lillian Russell. And so, when I wonder if you know that I live in France, I’m sure you don’t, because I am certain that you think me peacefully interred, and in good old native American soil. If that’s the case, you’re in for a surprise.”

Five time Oscar nominee. Two time winner (for “The Heiress in 1950 and “To Each His Own” in 1947. Melanie Hamilton in “Gone With the Wind,” for which she got a supporting actor Oscar nod. . A true movie legend. She has to be the last of the greats. So let’s see her in action:

Sigur Rós: Varúõ

Why is an Asian woman with a gold sparkly wig skipping barefoot in the middle of the streets of New York to an etherial Islandic song whose title means “Warning”?

Even more puzzling, why is she skipping through every place I go when I’m in the city? For me, that’s the scary part, because I expect to see myself bicycling through one of these shots, because that’s how I usually get around Brooklyn and Manhattan.

This is one of those instances where I think I’ve been brain hacked.

Here are the lyrics:

Varúð

Þrjú lagst út
Og reitum til alls tiðna
Út allt, allt út
Og kveikjum bálkerti
Og vindur undan frá
Sem hverlir orðnar múrar
Allt, allt út um allt
Og nóg beini er kalt
Drepur allt
Varúð
Varúð
Útan liður í ísköld
Kveikjum varðeld, þá að komi kvöld
Og orðin bíðum bláköld
Við reisum aftur á sifurskjól
Og vindur undan frá
Sem hverlir orðnar múrar
Allt, allt út um allt
Þarna lá þúsund fall
Og dregur all
Varúð
Varúð
Varúð
And here’s what they mean in English:

Warning

Three laid out
And fields of everything melted
Out all, all out.
And let’s light the bonfire-candles
And the winds from far away.
As ?who/might be something else? became brick walls
All, everywhere
And enough bones are cold
Kills everything
Warning
Warning
Outside, part of the icecold
Let’s light a bonfire, when it’s evening
And words wait bluecold
Let’s build again a silver shelter
And winds from underneath
As ?who? became brick walls
All, everywhere
There laid a thousand falls
And draws everything
Warning
Warning
Warning
