Speaking of meltdown. You and your party really meltdown after the midterms. I don’t even know what your party you consider yourself since you don’t care about half of other Republicans or more from across the US that receive benefits. (previously we had a conversation and you mentioned you don’t care about them)

You are creating your own controversy. No one on TI really care about the hats. I don’t think no one even mentioned it.

Again Eye, your missing the point.  This is not an issue brought up by anyone here, it is a national phenomena brought up by the national media and internet trolls.  More than one Snowflake outlet like CNN, NYT and MSNBC brought up the "hat" as a triggering device.  This is not a hood or even a baklava..its a golf cap.  How is a golf cap racist?  Just more nonsensical, snowflake, fake drummed up hysterical baloney.

I’m glad that you stated that no one on TI brought up the red hat. How come you never blamed Trump’s secretary’s for the way they spent tax payers money for taking trips, you never blamed Scott P for having a sound proof room paid by the tax payers? (I can keep on going)

Why don’t you blame the GOP for being out of touch? (midterm results)

I don’t bring that up because A) that’s not the topic of this thread and B) I believe both sides waste taxpayers money like that. For every repub under a repub you can find a dem stealing under a dem...to me just no distinction there. This race baiting, snowflake thing is uniquely Democrat.

Let’s face it the GOP is out of touch. The race base tactics is not working.

Racism is on a gradient.

The terminology describing racism needs to be on a gradient also. When snowflakes label someone who hates the black keys on the piano a racist, the term loses all meaning and diminishes the crimes of true racists like Hitler.

So Eye, you only think republicans steal and abuse power? Really,  because that view is the one that is out of touch. And if you don’t see the topic of this thread as pointing out how out of touch little snowflakes are you might just be a little too close to see it.  Like the old saying goes, when you sit down to play poker and you can’t figure out who the sucker is...It’s probably you.

Snowflakes will now reap what they sow... In Virginia they now have a Governor who is going down for "Blackface:" 30 years ago, A Lt. Governor who is going down for #metoo offenses being prosecuted by their own Blasey-Ford lawyers,  and now a State AG going down for...."blackface"....If snowflakes want all these scalps guess what Virginia will get?...A Republican Governor!!!  Like I said in the SCOTUS thread this gangs lack of tolerance is costing them dearly..

Good lord, who cares? I was drinking when I was 15.  If i was prosecuted for every fumbling teenage boob grab from my teen years I would be sitting with Papillon.  The way most of us lost our virginity would today be prosecuted as child molestation.(but i didn't think so).  My generation turned out OK anyway.  Let it go, I understand "different time" but this is ridiculous.  WE ALL have these skeletons, if you don't there something wrong. If this is the new standard then NO ONE will become a judge, cop, politician,  doctor everyone is disqualified, this will backfire

Now Virginia's third-ranking official admits he wore blackface in college – after governor's own race shame and sex attack allegation against lieutenant governor – and if all three Democrats step down a REPUBLICAN would run the state

State Attorney General Mark Herring has urged Ralph Northam to step down
Northam's medical school yearbook page shows a photo of one person in blackface and another in a KKK robe
Herring admitted Wednesday that he, too, wore blackface – in 1980 while he was a college student 
He dressed as a rapper and performed a song at a party while attending college
Northam first apologized, then said it isn't him in the racist photo
Herring is third-ranking Virginia official; Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, the number-two, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at 2004 Democratic convention   
Herring would become governor if Northam and Fairfax step down; all three are Democrats
If they all fall, the Republican speaker of the State Assembly becomes governor; the same man would run impeachment hearings if they take place.

Comedy gold...like how many are going to wear this $890 monstrosity? I think this is actually corporate self flagellation in order to  drum up some free virtue signalling press. No one would have known this sweater even existed if they didn't point it out.

Gucci apologizes and stops selling $890 'blackface' sweater
"We are fully committed to increasing diversity throughout our organization and turning this incident into a powerful learning moment."

But your not a true Republican. (You are more like an opportunist that don’t care or don’t have an understanding about the GOP base) Also, your buddy ran a campaign to drain the swamp. But now it’s more like a sewer.

I'm no idealistic purist. I have stated that many times. I think ALL politicians are scum, my side included. I get endless entertainment from the fact that Dems actually think there is an ounce of Virtue in any of their candidates and leaders (hence the cynicism of this thread).  My side is closer to my personal views and motives so that is why is support them but as we have seen, Republicans don't support the President either.  This animal is a bit of a hybrid.

Easy to be a snowflake...until the sun comes out and you start to melt.

Blackface scandal silences Jimmy Kimmell and Jimmy Fallon as hosts and celebs including Billy Crystal, Judy Garland, Ted Danson and Joy Behar have participated in the racist practice

Racist practice of blackface is again in the news after a photo of Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia and a friend in a KKK robe and minstrelsy makeup emerged
Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmell made no mention of the scandal on their late night shows, with both men having done blackface in the past
Fallon did blackface to portray Chris Rock on Saturday Night Live, while Billy Crystal did the same on the show to play Sammy Davis Jr
Judy Garland (Everybody Sing), Gene Wilder (Silver Streak), Elizabeth Taylor (Il giovane Toscanini) and Robert Downey Jr (Tropic Thunder) did blackface on film
Joni Mitchell showed up in blackface on the cover of her 1977 alum Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, while Ted Danson dressed as a black minstrelsy in 1993
NAACP CEO Derrick Johnson said in a statement: 'Black face in any manner is always racist and never okay'

You never bring up Scott Pruit. Why? Because he makes Trump look really bad. You can’t beat a sound proof room that Scotty had done in his office. Lol

Love Scott Pruitt. I don't care he made a soundproof room. Can't blame these guys for being paranoid, and I am a huge "Denier" .

Blackface was invented, promoted, and perpetuated by the entertainment industry so clearly Liberals and Dems cannot be blamed for it because there are no Liberals or Dems in the entertainment industry. Oh wait.

This is why McCarthy the guy who took over for Paul Ryan took action against Steve King to serve on committees.

Representative Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, on Sunday promised “action” following the latest race-related remarks by Representative Steve King.

“Action will be taken,” McCarthy said Sunday of the Republican on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “I’m having a serious conversation with Congressman Steve King on his future and role in this Republican Party."

McCarthy said the language used by King “has no place in America” and added that he wouldn’t allow such words to continue “to stand and have any role with us.”

GOP Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said King, who was co-chairman of his 2016 presidential campaign, “needs to stop it.”

“What Steve King said was stupid,” Cruz said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “It was stupid, it was hurtful, it was wrong."

Waiting for someone to tell me that Lincoln was a Republican and Democrats were anti-civil rights.

Are the San Francisco 49'ers next.  I need to find out who the "some" are that are always "say"ing.   First, they came for the mascots....

Cal State Long Beach retires Prospector Pete mascot amid cries of racism and genocide during California gold rush

Cal State Long Beach is sending Prospector Pete packing.

The towering bronze statue that sits in the plaza outside the liberal arts building soon will be relocated to a less prominent place on campus as the university officially moves to retire the mascot that some say represents the state’s history of racism and genocide against Native Americans.
