    An inquiry you say? What is this witchcraft?!?

    Further proof that the two sides are not playing the same game.

    Documentary was a little tongue in cheek for the actual film, until the end.


    Some digs within the film and then some sobering realities covered at the end.

    Huge eye roll when I heard that story earlier. The only way the GOP could be any more "deeply concerned" or furrow its brows any harder without actually doing anything would require them to dig John McCain back up. What a load of pearl clutching bullshit. "Steve King; borderline white nationalist/racist? How could we possibly have known? There were never any signs!"

    Do you mean to imply that adolescent boys in MAGA hats, being bused to a pro-life march, because they are told they have a right to deny the reproductive rights of adult women, might be contrived?

    Or maybe, they are just actually assholes.

    I mean, who among us didn't have a PR firm hired by our parents to convince the world we weren't unrepentant douche nozzles when we were in our teens?


    While It sure seems like their aren't any really innocent parties in this whole affair (well, maybe the old man, who seems well meaning but a few cents short of a nickle), you have to admit that only one of the involved parties (an entire community!) proudly, and publicly, took on the dog whistle banner baseball cap of misogyny and nationalism and wore it with a gleeful smirk for all the world to see. "Manufactured outrage" is the fucking point when an adult lets a group of teenage edgelords wear MAGA hats to an anti abortion rally.

    I read the "actual" story a few days ago, backed up by more recent video. IMO, it doesn't change an thing. So what if the kids were being egged on by another group, that still doesn't give them the right to harass the native american guy and by all the information I can see, after coming a reasonable distance away, the kids still closed the gap and surrounded him.

    "What you see here hinges on whether you believe that “Make America Great Again” is a dog whistle meant to unite racists, misogynists, and homophobes under one umbrella, or you’re delusional and don’t care about people who aren’t white men.

    If you’re of one of the latter two groups, then you believe that Native American Nathan Phillips was asking for it when he put himself in the middle of a confrontation between a small group of Black Israelites and a large group of high school students. You also believe that Phillips’s aggressive standing and singing a song justifies the students mocking him and invading his personal space.

    Conspiracy theorists are now claiming that Phillips “waded into the crowd of students” despite video evidence that he walked into the space separating the students and Black Israelites and stood there before that students formed a semicircle around him. How you perceive this goes to whether you believe white people are entitled to whites only spaces. If you do, then Phillips being present in such a space was outrageous and the uppity Native American needed to be put in his place, just like Black civil rights protesters that invaded whites only lunch counters, public pools, schools, and neighborhoods in the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

    The kids weren’t neutral. They attended a march to voice their male anti-abortion opinions. They were in Washington D.C. to confront women’s right advocates. They draped their bodies in “Make America Great Again” attire, which is the choice apparel for racist Americans. When confronted by a smaller group of protesters instead of turning the other cheek, they stood their ground and resorted to what they’ve been taught- racism. Now that they’ve been exposed, the kids are pivoting to the other thing the adults taught them- play the victim.

    The isn’t new. White business owners, white teachers, and white parents who participated in, promulgated, and benefited racism for generations have long claimed to be victims of integration. They’ve passed it on to their children. Behave like bigots and then claim to be victims when confronted- this the epitome of what make America great again is."

    ^^^ What's the big deal? Maybe he just was identifying as black that day. All the cool kids are playing make believe these days.



    Newly married couple model Martina Big, 28, and Michael Eurwen appeared on This Morning. They have both had tanning injections to darken their skin and claim that doctors have told them that their babies will be black
