Here are 10 reasons why Trump’s win is ‘white supremacy’s last stand in America’

Published

on

Political commentator Danielle Moodie-Mills doesn’t believe sexism played as large a role in Hillary Clinton’s tragic loss as most progressive pundits have claimed.

“I do not believe that this is people saying, I couldn’t possibly have a woman in this role,” Mills told CBC News following Trump’s big win.

“This is so much bigger than that,” she continued. “…and I will say it because I have literally nothing left to lose tonight.. this is literally white supremacy’s last stand in America.”

Mills explained what that looks like, referencing infamous incidents from the Trump campaign as well as the far-right’s inexcusable agenda:

1. “This looks like black people being pushed out of rallies…”

2. “a young boy with cerebral palsy…having his wheelchair kicked and being brought to the front of the line…”

3. “gerrymandering and redistricting who can vote and who can’t vote…”

4. “closing polls early” and then suing districts for keeping polls open…

5. “the Supreme Court gutting the Voting Rights Act…”

6. acknowledging how “the system was rigged for [the white working-class] to succeed.”

7. subjecting others to a “hatred on a level that we have not seen since Jim Crow…”

8. caring more about Clinton’s likability than “how deep our hatred was…”

9. letting “the Tea Party weasel their way into Congress… into the governorships [without] conversation…”

10. letting Trump “[stoke] every fire, [light] every bridge, and just open the floodgates” to America’s racist underbelly, beginning with birtherism, only to become president.

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

Published

on

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
