Another confrontation with Senate Majority leader confronted by protesters while he was at his home state.

“McConnell chased from KY restaurant by protesters
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was followed to his car Saturday by protesters who hurled both personal insults and political rhetoric at him while he left a Kentucky restaurant.”

Is this then “black privilege”? Actually, none of them have to do with race.

Still looking for the part where CNN calls him a racist for pardoning Alice Johnson.

Classic Trump administration...create a catastrophe and then claim credit for fixing it.

Quote
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar on Tuesday said that what the U.S. is doing for immigrant children is “one of the great acts of American generosity and charity.”

“It is one of the great acts of American generosity and charity, what we are doing for these unaccompanied kids who are smuggled into our country or come across illegally,” Azar said on CNN's "The Situation Room."

Yes , conservatives and Trump cling to the "rule of law" when it comes to separating non-violent parents from their children - some of whom are guilty of no crime at all -- but he can issue full pardon for right wing nuts who tried to murder firefighters -- it is so transparent what this is all about

and yes, only white people get to commit attempted murder on peace officers and get away with it  . these Oregan terrorists wouldn't be alive today if they happened to be brown or black.

Can't win for losing.

For Black Lives Activists, Engaging in Trump’s Pardon Politics Feels Like a Deal With the Devil
Is it “worth boosting the reputation of a racist, misogynist, and dangerously authoritarian administration?”

If you're worried about racial quotas and fairness Trump has pardoned 5 white guys, 2 blacks and an Indian.  Does he need to find a LGBTXYZ Asian to pardon in order to better reflect "America"?

yeah, way to answer a made up question no one asked to deflect from actual argument

it not about the act of pardon itself, but the crime itself for which the domestic terrorists are being pardoned

But you are the one who said it’s all about race...it isn’t. I guess I have to label the jokes (sarcasm)

problem is you have a matrix of ready-made response for every topic

so if it mentions race , then use the lookup table to go to ... bingo,  quotas !

nuance cannot make it through the filing system

That’s right “white privilege” has nothing to do with race, or the topic of this thread for that matter.

Shouldn’t it be at least a little bit disconcerting to you that a bunch of lawless crazies that wanted to kill firefighters are given this level of heroic treatment as opposed to being labeled as terrorists which they are . Just because of what “side” they represent .
