Bernie Sanders Represents America’s Working Class, Not Donald Trump

Here in Louisiana and across the country, many white working class people have subscribed to the rhetoric of Donald Trump’s campaign and have rejected Bernie Sanders as being a “communist” – despite the fact his policies would benefit them.

The Rise Of The KKK In 1915 Is Shockingly Similar To Donald Trump In 2015

The KKK and far-right hate groups made the news again this week when former Grand Wizard David Duke spoke about GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, and praised Trump as being “head and shoulders right now above the rest.” While it is important to note that David Duke claimed this wasn’t an endorsement of the Trump campaign, […]

White Supremacist David Duke on Donald Trump: He Speaks ‘A Lot More Radically’ Than I Do

This was the election cycle during which the GOP planned on showing us that they had moved beyond the Southern Strategy.

Another Protester Assaulted At A Donald Trump Rally

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has devolved from a ridiculous promotional stunt into a rabble-rousing flirtation with xenophobia and fascism that evokes memories of Mussolini and Franco in 1930’s Europe.

GOP Rep. Steve King: I’m Just As Hispanic And Latino As Julián Castro

The Republican Party is having a very hard time attracting the Hispanic vote, and Donald Trump’s antics are only making it worse.

No Longer the Party of Lincoln: Here’s Proof That the Modern Day GOP Built Itself on Racism

The usual “go-to” rhetoric from many conservatives and Republicans regarding racism harkens back to the fact that during the days of the Civil War, the creation and rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the decades of segregation, the Democratic party was mostly behind all of that. Well, that much is true; there’s no denying […]

Republicans Continuing to Defend Rep. Scalise are Exposing the True Confederate Colors of Their Party

Recently the story broke about Republican House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and a speech he gave at an event for white supremacists back in 2002. Just the facts about the story itself don’t leave a whole lot of wiggle room for excuses. This was an event organized by a Neo-Nazi for blatantly racist individuals […]

Republicans Need To Stop Making Excuses For Racism And Steve Scalise

As soon as Lamar White Jr’s shocking story on Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) and his association with the KKK broke, the usual flood of people came out to defend Rep. Scalise with the same tired old counter-accusations. Over at the boundless “klavern” of racism, bigotry and proud ignorance that is also known as my local […]

Senator David Vitter Claims A Petition Will Stop Ebola In Louisiana

It’s not a big secret how I – and many other Louisiana residents – feel about David Vitter, our junior two-term U.S. Senator. In fact, this scumbag who managed to survive a prostitution scandal that involved a dead madam and an alleged adult diaper fetish, has been referred to by The Daily Beast as “America’s […]

GOP Candidate Refers To Whites As ‘Traditional’ Voters, Wants to ‘Divide and Conquer’ the Poor

Political candidates, especially some of our friends over on the far right, still haven’t received the memo that in this day and age, cameras are everywhere. No matter what you say, where you say it, or when you said it, chances are very good that someone will send footage of anything slightly dumb that comes […]
