    Child labor laws and nepotism be damned. Good job putting those kids to work, Seth.

    No surprise that Fox News is attacking the Muppets. They once even said that Mr. Rogers was “an evil, evil man”… https://youtu.be/b5JkzyGXJ2w (We could *really* use Fred Rogers to bring us comfort in these lousy times!)

    Can we vote to eliminate the word trump from the english language? It should be banned with the rest of the racist words.

    If he really wants a statue of a racist idiot that tried to destroy America, they could just stand him on a pedastal and dump a load of wet concrete over him. Although that would set a bad president…

    In 1985 in Missouri I took a test .. the kind u have to pass to graduate? Well .. one section was about the Civil War .. which I have to say ONE question I was pretty sure I got RIGHT but the whole section was marked wrong til I pointed out the ONE I knew was right … the North (Union) won that war … so .. once I pointed THAT out suddenly the whole section was reversed and I passed it .. so .. in 1985 they were still teaching the Confederacy won that …

    Individual 1 is using the same strategy he used to conquer Atlantic City. He is supporting the confederacy because it lasted 4 years, just like his presidency.

    If only Tucker could understand that his quote… When you grow up they can do whatever they want to you and you have no right to complain… Is exactly what is happening now. Just to brown and black bodies.

    Why is Fox talking about Looney Tunes and Sesame Street? The gun removal from Elmer and Yosemite is one thing because of they’re cartoons but Sesame Street? That’s just “kids this is why racism is bad” so let’s make the network apologize. By the way Fucker Carlson lost to Elmo on that so jokes on him for picking a fight.

    The namesakes of these bases are the exact opposite of a heritage of American victory and freedom. They weren’t American while fighting, they seceded. They weren’t victorious because they lost. And they were fighting for the opposite of freedom, slavery.

    I don’t think we should celebrate the symbols of hate and oppression (Confederate Flag, Nazi Flag, etc.) Instead, I think we should use those flags as symbols for causes that run completely opposite to what the original symbol was (egalitarian confederate flags, inclusive Judaism Nazi flags, etc.) This would drive the original causes crazy, which is the best revenge.

    Isn’t Trump a Confederate President? A Republican Confederate President who I predict will be pushed down into a mud puddle by some black guy outside of a McDonald’s drive through 2 years 2 months from now?

    Yeah, that’s what a leader does. Spends all his time on social media like some outcast high school student.

    What’s ironic is that the Looney Tunes cartoons were NEVER intended for children, just like how pornographic cartoons aren’t for children. So, instead of raping intellectual property so it can conform to some anti-gun agenda, maybe create your own goddamn cartoons intended for children! The usa is full of hacks and lack any real creative or imaginative minds.

    In all my years I have never seen such a jackass in any public office as Trump. His presidency is an ongoing threat to our republic. Remember, Trump is an impeached president.

    Tear down the statues of slave masters. Change names of everything that has a racists name on it. Next thing Trump will want his own stature, You can make one of those Patera down the next day.

    I’d have to agree with that. And STOP saying Americans and America ____ as if the USA is the only country in North America. For one syllable one can say US citizens, USA, or United States. Do the continental thing and say ‘States.’ Huh? Huh?

    The Democrats are the true racists. There was a racist poem being circulated and promoted my Democrats when Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington into the White House, and again when First Lady Lou Hoover, wife of President Herbert Hoover, invited the wife of Oscar DePriest to a tea event. De Priest was a member in the House of Representatives and the only African-American member in Congress in 1929.
