After a disastrous week in which President Donald Trump confirmed he was a virulent racist, Republicans are spinning like crazy as they try to defend him.

Trump has been battling with a group of progressive congresswoman known as the Squad. The group includes Reps. Ilhan Omar, Condace Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib. They are all women of color. Trump told them they should go back to their countries, even though three of them were born in the United States.

And at a rally earlier this week Trump stood by as a crowd chanted “send her back” referring to Omar, who was born in Somalia. (Trump later claimed that he tried to stop it.)

But in spite of the video evidence, Trump supporters have bent over backward to discredit the story.

QAnon followers tried to claim the chanters were plants.

“The chanters could have been shape-shifting aliens trying to make Republicans look racist,” claimed Willa Forrest, a Trump supporter from Biloxi, Miss. who is a member of a QAnon Facebook group. (QAnon is an insane conspiracy collective that believes Trump is working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to expose a group of pedophiles that includes Hillary Clinton, Oprah and Tom Hanks.)

The cast of “FOX and Friends,” also tried to defend Trump. They recently hosted alleged heterosexual and fellow racist Rush Limbaugh.

“And yet some people at a Trump rally make some innocent little chat born of fun and Washington comes to a halt and everybody gets up. ‘Oh my God, oh my God, did you hear what he –’ It’s nothing,” said Limbaugh. “You know, we have this two sets of rules circumstance here, and all this is, is designed to get conservative Republicans acting as though they’re guilty of racism, bigotry, sexism, and homophobia, and it’s all made up.”

Eric Bolling

By Rondell Pettus

Sexual predator Eric Bolling has joined with other right-wingers, who are piling in on “The Squad,” a group of progressive Democratic congressman including Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Condace Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

So-called President Donald Trump launched a political firestorm, designed to distract from his links to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, when he said the congresswomen should go back to their countries. (Three of them were born in the United States.)

Other right wingers, such as longtime bachelor Sen. Lindsey Graham, have also piled on by calling the women “communists.”

But Bolling thinks they are left-wing militants “who want to overthrow the government.”

“Why do they call themselves the Squad?” said Bolling on wingnut outlet BlazeTV. “It has militaristic tones and implies they will get violent if they don’t get their way.”

Trump’s comments have divided the country along racial lines. Democrats in the House voted unanimously to condemn the comments. However, only four Republicans joined them. Many Republicans support the president’s racist views.

According to far-right commentator Josh Bernstein, Omar is a threat to the United States.

“This is an infiltrator,” said Bernstein, according to Right Wing Watch. “This is somebody that’s not a member of Congress, this is somebody that is a jihadist terrorist that is inside Congress like a cancer [that] is trying to metastasize and spread her cancerous genes to other members to infect the body of our government. She wants to kill Americans and American policy and American freedom and liberty and prosperity by spreading hatred, by spreading lies, by spreading disinformation, and basically supporting people that are against the United States.”

Bernstein also recently urged Trump to ignore Congress and become a “dictator for patriotism.”

“You tell them what you are going to do and you do everything else you have to do by executive order. Almost become a dictator for patriotism, if you have to,” said Bernstein on Bill Deagel’s “NutriMedical Report Show.”

Lashana Lynch (MTV International)

By Michael Houltt

The National White Alliance, a white nationalist group, is up in arms about the upcoming James Bond movie.

The new movie features a black actress playing 007. British actress Latasha Lynch replaces 007, but Daniel Craig will still play James Bond. In the movie, Bond has retired from the intelligence service and is called back after an international emergency.

“The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis,” according to the Daily Mail. “A movie insider said: ‘There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007′, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.’It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”

The new movie also updates the Bond films to keep up with the modern world.

“‘This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film,’ the source added. ‘There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he’s having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo,’” said the Daily Mail.

However, the National White Alliance was furious at this and accused Hollywood of “erasing white men.”

“This is outrageous,” said Brian Blanc, Alliance president. “None of our heroes are sacred anymore. A black woman playing 007 is just ridiculous. That was always a white man’s job.”

Blanc blamed these changes on former President Barack Obama.

“Obama ruined everything,” said Blanc. “After the Jews made Obama president, anything was possible. Hollywood felt they had to keep up and now they want to take all the best roles from white men.”

Blanc also called for a boycott of the new Bond film, which is not even out yet. The National White Alliance has also recently complained about “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid.” Both of the leads have been recast to feature black actors.

The U.S. women’s soccer team celebrate their win. (Howcheng)

By Megan Prince

The United States Women’s National Soccer team is still basking in the glory of winning the World Cup. Team members have been all over the media making appearances. And vice-captain Megan Rainoe has been particularly active. In a speech, she said she was happy about the diversity of the team which contained “white girls, gay girls and black girls.”

But not everyone is happy about Rapinoe, who is gay.

According to Mark Taylor, a former firefighter turned self-declared prophet, there was a more sinister motive to the team’s win. Taylor, who’s prone to promoting ridiculous conspiracy theories, said the game was rigged by the Deep State and Illuminati.

“The Deep State-Illuminati paid Holland to throw the game,” said Taylor. “They wanted Rapinoe to win, so she can use the platform to promote the gay agenda.”

Taylor also claimed that a recent weather disaster was divine punishment.

“That’s the first thing that comes to mind,” said Taylor on an appearance on the “Up with Prophecy” show, “because when Roe v. Wade comes down, where is [the issue] going to go? It is going to go to the states. And you have states out there like Georgia—and there are a couple of others out there—that have gone as far as making this stuff illegal for abortion. You’ve got to remember, what is abortion? The sacrificing of kids. What does that sacrifice do? Abortion is the food source for Baal; Baal being the strongman over America. That’s what empowers Baal. You’re taking Baal’s food source and he’s not liking it, so this is retaliation from the enemy that I would say is from that heartbeat bill.”

However, Taylor wasn’t the only American to root against their own country.

Far-right troll Ann Coulter also spoke out against the success of the U.S. women’s team.

She pledged to launch a war against soccer.

“The WOS spreads! (That’s the name of my new organization, War On Soccer.)” said Coulter in a Twitter post.

Donald Trump (Gage Skidmore)

By Rondell Pettus

Aficionados of QAnon, the insane conspiracy that believes that President Donald Trump is working with Robert Mueller to bust a group of pedohiles, are facing a conundrum. On one hand, the recent revelations about the crimes of serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein have confirmed many of their conspiracy theories about secret groups of powerful pedophiles. (Former President Bill Clinton was a friend of Epstein’s and occasionally used his plane.) However, Epstein has been closely linked to President Donald Trump, who attended his parties, once partied alone with him and said he admired his lifestyle.

Trump was also accused of raping an underage girl at Epstein party.

However, the QAnon lunatics have an excuse for this. According to a QAnon Facebook group, Trump went undercover at Epstein’s parties to gather information for the government.

“Trump is such a suave, sophisticated person he naturally blended in with all those rich freaks. But he was really gathering information he could use to bust them,” said Peter Watson, a member of the group. “He was acting like James Bond, infiltrating a terrorist group.”

However, the Trump administration is under fire for the actions of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, who was the U.S. attorney who worked out a sweetheart deal for Epstein. Although Epstein was accused of raping more than 30 children, Acosta got him a deal that left him serving 13 months in county jail. He was also still able to work and only had to report to the jail at night.

But Trump has still praised Acosta and said “he feels bad for him.”

However, he is under pressure to fire him.

According to VICE News, the Epstein story fits in with many of QAnon’s conspiracy theories.

“It’s often been described as a spinoff from the Pizzagate conspiracy, which posited that then-candidate Hillary Clinton and Democrat officials were running a child trafficking ring below the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in D.C. The Pizzagate theory, which spread quickly via social media, inspired a man to drive six hours from North Carolina, armed with an AR-15, which he fired upon arrival. Nobody was hurt, but the incident was a tangible reminder that fake news and conspiracy theories can inspire real-world violence,” said a VICE News story.

Megan Rapinoe (Flickr)
By Mary Washington

Megan Rapinoe, vice-captain of the U.S. Women’s soccer team, is lauded as a world champion after leading her team to victory in the World Cup. However, she’s not popular with everyone at home.

Fundamentalist Christians, who blindly follow the morally and financially bankrupt President Donald Trump have launched a ridiculous attack on Rapinoe. She has publicly fueded with Trump over her decision to refuse to sing the national anthem due to this country’s treatment of gay people.

However, fundies see her action as blasphemous. Former televangelist Jim Bakker claimed that Rapinoe is possessed by the demonic “spirits of disobedience and lesbianism.”

“It’s obvious from her lifestyle that she has decided to disobey God’s law, but she also defying Donald Trump, God’s representative on Earth,” said Bakker in an interview with Charisma magazine. “She has decided to go against everything godly.”

Bakker’s hatred of Rapinoe was also shared by posters on Breitbart, a neo-fascist website.

Some posters suggested that Rapinoe may be a secret Muslim.

“Rapinoe hates the U.S. so much she must be a secret Muslim or an ISIS agent,” said a poster called TrumpisKing22.

Rapinoe is gay so it’s highly unlikely she would be a member of a fundamentalist Islamic sect.

Other wingnuts have also piled onto the women’s soccer team, according to Salon. Some right-wingers pundits have accused the women of being “unladylike” and stomping on the American flag.

“Right wing pundit Jonathan Gilliam tweeted a video of the women celebrating, making this ‘stomped’ accusation, calling it ‘unpatriotic narcissistic behavior’ and declaring that Rapinoe ‘is neither a hero or a role model,” said Salon writer Amanda Marcotte. “Unsurprisingly, this claim is a flat-out lie. The video shows the women, in their joy, accidentally dropping the flag and Rapinoe’s foot brushing it. There was nothing more to it than that, but the flagrantly false meme spread like wildfire, feeding on both the conservative desire to equate patriotism with slavish devotion to Trump, and also on deeply-rooted conservative sexism.”

Halle Bailey

By Piper Blackmon

White people, already mad at the fact that Will Smith is playing a blue-skinned genie, are now up in arms over Disney’s decision to cast a black actress as the role of Ariel in the live-action version of “The Little Mermaid.”

And the hypersensitive National White Alliance, an alt-right group, has waded into the argument.

Alliance President Brian Blanc called the decision to cast singer/actress Halle Bailey as Ariel ludicrous and unscientific.

“This is the worst kind of politically correct nonsense that Hollywood and the liberal left are known for,” said Blanc in a press release. “How can a black woman be a mermaid? Half of them can’t swim and they don’t like to get their hair wet.”

Blanc also accused the new version of “The Little Mermaid” of erasing white culture because the story is based on Danish writer Han Christian Andersen’s tale.

“You don’t have black mermaids,” said Blanc.

However, Ghanaweb.com reported the legend of “Mami Wata” is common throughout Africa and countries settled by the descendants of Africans. Mami Wata is a half-woman, half-fish creature worshipped as a deity.

Unfortunately, many people share Blanc’s ridiculous and bigoted views.

Raw Story reported that a Change.com petition demanding that Ariel remain white has received more than 10,000 signatures.

“Jasmine in the new live action Aladdin had to be cast as a true Middle Easterner, and the voices of the lions in the new Lion King HAD to be black. Why can Ariel not stay red headed, blue eyed white girl,” said the petition? “There’s nothing wrong with being proud to be ANY race. Black, white, Asian, Latino, etc. Just like Mulan is Asian with black hair and brown eyes, and HOPEFULLY Pocahontas is Native American. Ariel is our red headed princess. Little red headed white girls shouldn’t have to feel ashamed or jipped.”

Kamala Harris (Office of the Attorney General of California)

By Michael Houltt

Members of the ridiculous QAnon cult were disappointed that “Q” didn’t use the July 4 holiday to reveal a secret that would have devastated the Democrats.

According to Bill Foster, a Trump supporter and QAnon believer, he thought Q was going to reveal that Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris and former President Barack Obama were clones of Malcolm X.

“I was sure he was going to reveal that members of the Nation of Islam had cloned Malcolm X’s DNA and implanted it in white mothers. Those mothers gave birth to Obama and Harris,” said Foster in a QAnon Facebook group. “That would have sunk Harris’ chances.”

Don Trump Jr. has also promoted the false idea that Harris is not a black American because her parents are Jamaican and Indian. Harris was born in Oakland, Calif. Her father is a Jamaican of African descent.

The QAnon conspiracy theory suggests that President Donald Trump is secretly working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to expose a secret group of pedophiles that includes Obama, Hillary Clinton and Tom Hanks.

But if that wasn’t crazy enough, some QAnon cult members have an even more bizarre idea. Many of them believe Q is John F. Kennedy, Jr. who secretly faked his death. (JFK Jr. died in a plane crash in 1999.)

According to Rolling Stone magazine, many QAnon cultists believed Kennedy was going to reveal his hidden identity on July 4.

“The theory that JFK Jr. is alive and a Trump supporter and a hirsute former financial services professional who lives in Pittsburgh has been percolating in QAnon forums for at least the past year. But it recently made a resurgence on YouTube, where QAnon supporters are posting tutorials for how to make JFK Jr. face masks to wear to Trump’s much-hyped July 4th rally, when they believe JFK Jr. will finally emerge from hiding,” said EJ Dickson. “The goal of the masks, according to Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer, is for believers to be able to easily identify other QAnon supporters (though, frankly, this seems unlikely, as the shock of seeing a long-dead celebrity casually walking around Washington would almost certainly inspire mass fear and panic in the streets).”

Rep. Alexandria-Cortez (El Borde)
By Rondell Pettus

The right-wing media has accused Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of threatening Customs and Border Patrol officers during a recent tour of a Texas facility.

According to FOX News commentator Jesse Watters, he has received anonymous reports that Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, threatened to assault them.

“According to reports I’ve received, AOC said, ‘I’m from the Bronx, son. I will cut you.’” said Watters. “It could be true, you know those Latinas are passionate and have hot tempers.”

AOC and a congregation of black and Latino representatives recently toured an El Paso, Texas facility used to house migrants. During the visit, they were stonewalled by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officials and also threatened by CBP officers. They were also heckled by protestors. AOC later said it was a hostile environment and she didn’t feel safe.

Rep. Veronica Escobar was also targeted by verbal abuse. A protestor called her a bitch.

She posted a video of the abuse on Twitter.

“Take a listen. This is what my staff and I have to deal with because we demand dignity for migrants. This woman was yelling this at me and others the entire presser,” said Escobar.

AOC later reported that she was shocked at the conditions she encountered, which included hundreds of migrants sharing one bathroom and people sleeping on the floor.

“It’s not just the kids. It’s everyone. People drinking out of toilets, officers laughing in front of members Congress. cell and one toilet and people sleeping on the floor,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a Twitter.

ProPublica also reported that AOC was the target of vile racist and sexist comments from a Facebook group that featured several CBP officers.

She also laughed at accusations of her threatening CBP officers.

“And to these CBP officers saying they felt “threatened” by me,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “They were literally discussing making a GoFundMe for an officer who attacked me on my tour.They confiscated my phone, and they were all armed. I’m 5’4”.”

Ivanka Trump (Twitter)

By Megan Prince

Hold on to your hats America. Far-right Christians are not just rallying behind President Donald Trump, who pals around with murderous dictators such as Kim Jong-Un and Vladimir Putin. But now they are also promoting Trump’s, shallow daughter Ivanka as a future president.

Ivanka Trump has a role as an advisor in the White House, even though she has no political experience.

Recently Ivanka caught flak after she accompanied her father to the G-20 and was pictured with world leaders. She also was videotaped trying to butt into a conversation with world leaders and getting rejected. She has also recently addressed the troops and accompanied her father on his butt-kissing meeting with North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-Un.

But Paula White, Trump’s spiritual advisor, is also an Ivanka booster. She promoted Ivanka as a future president. (There’s is currently an Ivanka2024 Twitter hashtag.)

“Ivanka has anointing in her DNA,” said White in a Charisma magazine interview. “If we elect her president, God will reward us for doing great things. He could send us a cure for AIDS.”

White recently said she had cast out “demonic networks” that were working against Trump.

However, Ivanka was also defended by trans-Atlantic idiot Piers Morgan, who called her “brilliant.”

But back in the real world, most of America was disgusted by Ivanka’s attempts to inject herself onto the world stage.

MSNBC pundits recently tore into her.

“I would assume Ivanka would tell you she’s not as qualified as a top American diplomat to do that, because she’s not,” said Phil Rucker, a Washington Post writer.

“She’s not as qualified as a Secret Service agent, who are at least briefed on the security threats,” said host Nicole Wallace. “What is she doing there?”

She was also savaged on Twitter.

“Stick to selling shoes Ivanka. We do not need a privileged twit like you advising us on North Korea or world peace,” said Twitter user Teresa Grier.
