‘Slaves built the US the way cows built McDonald’s’ — and other historical ‘facts’ from Katie McHugh

Published

on

Katie McHugh was fired from Breitbart News on Monday after she wrote on Twitter that “there would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there” after a terror attack in London.

Below is an article about McHugh’s from 2015. As you can see for yourself, she had a history of racist Twitter rants:

It must be very liberating to be a conservative right now. With fifteen GOP candidates still vying for a job that will never be hired for — now that Rick Perry finally looks like the smart one by saying “Laters, losers” — crazy talk wins the hearts and minds of the conservative base and everyone is doing it.

After Andrew Breitbart checked out at age 43 from heart failure and not an Obama space-based death ray— leaving his widow to tidy up some of his messier affairs — the website that bears his name has traveled further downriver into the fever swamps  of nativism, misogyny, barely restrained racism and incompetence.

This is due in no small part by actively seeking out people deemed too horrible to work for Tucker Carlson’s White Privilege Frat House and National Natty Light Reserve.

One of the lesser known hires from the DC is Katie McHugh who was brought over to “aggressively and insightfully tell the stories that are shaping our political and cultural experience,” according to Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.

Or, as McHugh put it: “I’m very proud to join the Breitbart News Network to reshape the American political conversation by airing out all the facts.”

And, having been promoted to front page editor after slightly more than a year, “reshaping” the conservation is exactly what she is doing by explaining history to America  — one tweet at a time.

Last night while the GOP debaters raged against the dying of the right, McHugh shared some amazing insights about immigrants in America, Muslims, slaves, Native-Americans, and Hispanics on the Twitter in her own whimsical way.

‘They deserve it’: Republican strategist tells GOP it’s their own fault for going down with Trump because ‘they know better’

Published

on

Republican strategist Susan del Percio said that there is no excuse for GOP members who failed to do the right thing and fight back against President Donald Trump when they had the opportunity.

Speaking to MSNBC's Joy Reid Thursday, del Percio called Trump "the anchor" around the GOP's necks, "dragging them down."

"But, you know what, they deserve it," she continued. "There are Republicans out there that deserve this because they know better. They should have been better on impeachment. They should have been holding him accountable all along. Now they are scared and worried about themselves. Well, boohoo, you brought it on. there's no excuse."

Trump officials demanded the Army ‘dig for misconduct’ to justify firing Lt. Col. Vindman

Published

on

This week, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman willingly left the Army after decades of honorable service. He cited a concerted campaign of "bullying" from the highest branches of power in the United States, and now more details are becoming known.

A New Yorker report revealed that top aides to President Donald Trump were told that they needed to find dirt on Vindman that could justify the firing of the decorated war hero.

"Vindman expected to go to the National War College this fall—a low-profile assignment—then take another foreign posting," the New Yorker reported. "But, in a final act of revenge, the White House recently made clear that Trump opposed Vindman’s promotion. Senior Administration officials told [Defense Secretary Mark] Esper and Ryan McCarthy, the Secretary of the Army, to dig for misconduct that would justify blocking Vindman’s promotion. They couldn’t find anything, multiple sources told me. Others in the military chain of command began to warn Vindman that he would never be deployable overseas again—despite his language skills and regional expertise."

George Conway reveals how Mary Trump’s book and the Supreme Court prove the ‘walls are closing in’ on the president

Published

on

Republican lawyer and "Lincoln Project" co-founder, George Conway, wrote in a Washington Post column Thursday that there are a lot of commonalities in Mary Trump's forthcoming tell-all book and the Supreme Court decision passed down in President Donald Trump's case with New York prosecutor Cy Vance.

Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, delivers "professional judgments about the president's indisputable narcissism and, perhaps, sociopathy dovetail with those that other experts have reached before," wrote Conway. "Yet it's not the possible diagnoses that give Mary Trump's book its punch. It's the factual detail — detail that only a family member could provide."
