Politics – NewsOne | After ‘Lynching’ Threat, Black Democratic Leader In Iowa Beefs Up His Security |

Source: Scott Olson / Getty One would think that, at this point, Trump supporters would be used to their rusty-white cult leader being the subject of scorn and criticism. Donald Trump is arguably the most hated commander-in-chief in recent history. People hated Trump so much Joe Biden is now our president. But apparently, the MAGA morons who love them some orangey-white nationalism are still getting super salty whenever anyone publicly tells the truth about their Lord of the Goya Beans, because Ross Wilburn, the first Black chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, received such violent and threatening hate from Trump cultists after penning an op-ed piece blasting Iowa Republicans for their support of their commander-in-twice-impeached that he had to beef up security for himself and his staff.

Politics – NewsOne | David Duke Is Big Mad Because Donald Trump And Tucker Carlson Keep Jacking His White Supremacist Style |

Source: mark peterson / Getty Just as game recognizes game, white supremacists recognize their own. Former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke appears to be salty at ex-President Donald Trump and Fox Noose…I mean, News host Tucker Carlson for stealing his white nationalist shine by creating platforms out of his ideas without giving him his neo-Nazi props. Media Matters shared clips from a recent episode of Duke’s podcast, Tighty-Righty-Whitey Radio. (I’m joking, that’s not what it’s called. I don’t know what it’s called. Who the hell cares what David Duke’s podcast is called?) In the clips, Duke complained to his co-host, Patrick Slavery…I mean, Slattery, that both Trump and Carlson adopted talking points that were based on ideas he came up with back when he had political aspirations. Spe...

Politics – NewsOne | Donald Trump Claims He’s Starting A ‘TRUTH’ Social Media Platform ‘To Stand Up To The Tyranny Of Big Tech’ |

Source: CHRIS DELMAS / Getty So, we all know that ex-President Donald Trump has been super salty ever since he was banned from Twitter and other social media platforms over his spreading of “stop the steal” voter fraud propaganda, which eventually led to the caucasity-coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. After the ban, Trump tried starting a blog, but he ended it after less than a month because like nine people total read it. (Seriously, the guy literally thinks in sentence fragments. Who the hell wants to read entire think pieces from someone who actually thinks in pieces?) So now, Orange Juisolini is working on a new way to spread lies and call it truth—he says he’s starting his own social media platform. According to BBC News, Trump’s new digital gathering place for people who bu...

Politics – NewsOne | GOP’s School Board Meetings Video That Dems Rejected Uses Black Parents To Push Anti-CRT Propaganda |

Merrick Garland, U.S. attorney general, right, speaks during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021. | Source: Bloomberg / Getty A Republican-endorsed video that Democratic House leadership successfully prevented from being played during a hearing on Capitol Hill disproportionately features Black parents at school board meetings pushing anti-critical race theory (CRT) propaganda. The partisan clash took place on Thursday as Attorney General Merrick Garland testified before the House Judiciary Committee about everything from Donald Trump’s flunkie Steve Bannon’s criminal contempt resolution for not complying with the Jan. 6 Commission’s subpoena to the Department of Justice’s allegations that it treated school board parents like “domestic terrori...

Politics – NewsOne | Mitch McConnell Praised Clarence Thomas’ Anti-Abortion Stance Hours Before SCOTUS Upheld Texas Ban Again |

  Source: Drew Angerer / Getty Hours before the Supreme Court shut down any hope of halting the extreme Texas abortion ban that went into effect last month, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell praised Justice Clarence Thomas. Guardian Columnist Moira Donegan caught the questionable conflict of interest. Per the recap Donegan shared, during remarks at a Heritage Foundation event, McConnell called Justice Thomas  “a ‘legal titan’ whose independence and courage are illustrated through his ‘jurisprudence on unborn life.’” The SCOTUS decision to leave SB8 in effect pending a ruling comes just after Mitch McConnell introduced Clarence Thomas this way last night at a Heritage Foundation event. https://t.co/W8R4CUHMbc pic.twitter.com/5lINuyuvHT — Moira Donegan (@MoiraDonegan) October 22, 2021 ...

Politics – NewsOne | ‘The View’ Attempted to Talk About Critical Race Theory But Let Conservative Misinformation Dominate The Conversation |

Source: Lorenzo Bevilaqua / Getty Leading daytime talk show “The View” continues to be a reckless platform with misinformed analysis and bad framings of important issues. In a recent episode featuring former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, the panel discusses critical race theory in the Virginia governor’s race. From Whoopi Goldberg’s opening framing about this being simply an issue of concerned parents trying to be involved, the conversation devolves into a dishonest framing of a fabricated issue meant to whip conservative voters into a frenzy.   To be clear if your child is learning critical race theory they are in an upper-level graduate school or law school course. But Rice responds with a mixture of personal testimony and bootstrap commentary about being a little Black child in th...
