Kaye began by asking the coworkers about Trump’s racist tweets telling four congresswomen of color to “go back” to their “crime infested” countries. Kerri Krumenauer, an employee of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company, defended the president and rejected claims that his attacks are in any way racist. “How is it racist?” Krumenauer asked.

For Trump, Racism Is an Election Strategy. For the Republican Right, It’s a Path to Power.

Most Republican leaders sat in shameful silence after President Trump told four women of color in the House of Representatives—three of them born in the U.S—to “go back” to  the “crime infested” countries they came from. When called on his racist rhetoric, Trump doubled down and dialed up the volume, accusing these elected officials of hating America and again inviting them and anyone else like them to leave. His followers picked up on his cue, chanting “send her back” after Trump slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar at a political rally. Trump’s racist rants and policy...

From ‘You Will Not Replace Us’ to ‘Send Her Back’: How Trump Brought the Spirit of the Charlottesville Rally to His Campaign Stage

He didn’t wince, he didn’t cringe, he didn’t say “stop.” He soaked it in. When the crowd at President Donald Trump’s Wednesday campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, began chanting “send her back” about one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, he paused for 13 seconds and let the words hang in the air. It should have been a crisis for him and his campaign, but it wasn’t. The moment channeled the spirit of another event that really was regarded as major upheaval in his presidency: the...

Trump’s Base Is a ‘Cult’ That May Never Be Deprogrammed: Report

On Saturday, The Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill posted an analysis of President Donald Trump’s base, and what their recent behavior, which “experts say resembles a cult or totalitarianism,” says about the country’s political health. “Trump has long stoked bigoted grievances among his followers, but the Greenville rally saw him act as a more overt radicalizer than ever before,” wrote Weill. “And with a portion of Trump’s fanbase now openly clamoring for the physical removal of several prominent Democrats of color, experts are questioning whether the country can repair the damage...

House Republicans Pressuring Amazon To Sell Gay Conversion Therapy Books

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({}); House Republicans are reportedly urging their colleagues in Congress to pressure Amazon to resume selling books that promote gay conversion therapy. Vice News reported on Friday that it had obtained a handout distributed on Wednesday by the Republican Study Committee — a conservative caucus that includes more than 70% of all GOP House members – urging members to “contact Amazon with concerns” about what they referred to as “Amazon censorship.” The “censorship” in question concerns Amazon’s decision to remove books by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi who...

Watch: Trump Calls Racist ‘Send Her Back’ Chanters ‘Incredible Patriots’

President Donald Trump may have tried to seem like he was distancing himself from the racist “send her back!” chants that erupted at his North Carolina re-election rally, but Friday afternoon he embraced the supporters who gave voice to his thoughts. “Those people in North Carolina, that stadium was packed, it was a record crowd, and I could have filled it ten times, as you know,” Trump falsely told reporters from the Oval Office. There were less than 8000 people in the stadium. “Those are incredible people, those are incredible...
