Playing on fear and fueling division Trump is one sorry pathetic soul.

He, like so many other demagogues will be retired to the ash heap of history.

Florida state prosecutor suspended after smearing Orlando: ‘melting pot of miscreants and thugs’

Florida Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis was suspended on Friday after insulting the city of Orlando on his Facebook page, WESH-TV reported.

Lewis first posted the disparaging remarks on Sunday, hours after the mass shooting attack at the Pulse nightclub that left 49 people dead and 53 others injured.

“The entire city should be leveled. It is void of a single redeeming quality. It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs,” he wrote. “It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril. If you go down there after dark there is seriously something wrong with you.”

Officials with the state attorney’s office said that Lewis’ post violated its policy regarding social media, and could be grounds for termination.

OT... FreeThinke had posted over at Lisa's Lunacy Lounge that you are no longer in control of your own weblog having allowed unsavory characters to take over. Mr. FreeThinke believes you've been running with wrong crowd so long you are no longer in control of your own mind. Coming from FreeThinke and LLL that is a real gas. Especially given LLL is the place where rightwing groupthink flourishes.

My apology for the OT comment. But thinking more about it FreeThinke is quite like Trump in some ways.

You don't have to apologize for the heads-up.

As for FT's or anyone from the LLL's opinion? As they say on the intertubz, "I am all out of YKWs to give."

Matthew Continetti, conservative writer and William Kristol's son-in-law:

"And when we are in late October, and Trump is still behind, his supporters will dismiss the polls as skewed, as phony. And when Trump loses, his cheerleaders in talk radio and on the Internet won’t accept a smidgen of responsibility, but will blame the neocons and the media and the Republican establishment for not doing more to help a lunatic become president.

It’s a joke. All of it: his candidacy, the apparatus of propaganda and grift surrounding it, the failures of governance and education and culture that have brought us to this place. What disturbs me most is the prospect that Donald Trump is what a very large number of Republican voters want: not a wonk, not an orator, not a statesman, not even a leader, really, if by leader you mean someone who persuades and inspires and manages a team to pursue a common good. They just want a man who vents their anger at targets above and below their status."


The rabid radical right wing bloggers who spend their time tearing down President Obama as the worst evil in America fail miserably to look with open eyes at the man who will be their nominee, a man who, by every sane person on this planet, is the personification of everything normal human beings detest.

This news brings me comfort, although I won't be fully at ease until he loses in November.

They're starting to wise up at the mothership...

"MY GOSH! I was just looking at a few news pages of headlines and you can’t BELIEVE the number of shootings…a little 4 yr old in some small town was killed today with a shot to the head, a gun store class had a fatality during the class’s practice. They go on and ON and it’s every single day. SINCE WHEN has this been happening? EVERY DAY there’s a shooting.
WHat the H?????????????"

I still think comprehensive gun control is off the table.

Since when has this been happening? Makes me feel bad that I'm banned.

Shaw Kenawe said...



Ducky, we know they live in a bubble where only they are allowed to talk to each other and, apparently, they don't stray from the central committee's approved news sources. That way reality doesn't waken them from their long, ignorant slumber.

Wait until they find out that the Orlando shooter was motivated by his self-hating sexuality and bi-polar disease.

I do stop by some of their blogs and read how utterly misinformed (and full of hatred) most of them are. A commenter here, who asked me to be delete his comment--for reasons unknown -- read that the famously stupid "kid" blithely asserted that President Obama did not go to Charleston, San Bernadino, and Auroa, Colorado after those shootings. No one corrected the dumbass, and so he and his fellow Obama haters accept the blatant lies he spreads. There's no hope for them. In some part of me, because they are my fellow Americans, I feel pity -- but mostly, after reading that pile of b.s. from the aptly named "kid," I feel contempt for a group of people so deeply invested in mendacity and hate. They will be left behind as history marches on, and history will rightly prove them monumental fools.

Ahab, I can't see how Trump will recover and become "presidential" in the next four months. He's had 12 months of being a crude, vulgar liar, alienating everyone except older white men (mostly poorly educated). And he can't win an election with just their votes. Trump has now become a large object of derision. Our country's biggest joke.

Ducky and Shaw, you're both right. Here's an example of their deranged thinking. I'm not making this up. A rightwinger wrote this and actually believes it:

"What we do is elect a majority Republican Congress and Senate to counter President Obama’s Radical Far Left agenda….. er, wait….. We The People have already done that.

So we can’t trust our own Republicans either, they’ve sold out to the Left. We’re being openly mocked, ridiculed, scolded, disrespected by the very people who promised if elected tp repeal ObamaCare, defund Executive Amnesty, defund Planned Parenthood, etc., etc., etc.

Now what do we do? Simple, elect Donald Trump in a landslide victory so large that Congress will be shaking in their boots. If they obstruct President Trump in any way, we throw their butts out of Congress until we get rid of every single traitor!

We’ve got a lot of work to do ahead of us."


The above rightwinger is too stupid to know that Congress can't "defund Planned Parenthood," individual states can, and about a dozen already have. But as was stated prviously, these people are poor educated and informed and their candidate of choice is Trump.

These people are as misinformed and dumb as their hero Trump.

Rational Nation USA said...

Dumb? Some, certainly not the lot.

Misinformed? Yup. Every last one.

The lack of curiosity and or willingness to consider factual data is astounding. These folks prefer feel good rhetoric that feeds their fears and prejudice.
