    It is hilarious and tragic just how obviously Brian Kemp stole his GA Governor election. He is going to get away with it, mark my words, you can never be too cynical in this day and age. I highly doubt that poor Stacey Abrams even has a realistic chance in taking in the lead over Kemp should she be lucky enough for a recount to occur. Democracy and the will of the voters clearly mean nothing at all to crooked bigots like Kemp, sadly.

    Thankfully, there are still smart and decent Americans like Van Jones who actually do care about unfair and rigged elections, who called out Kemp on everything he pulled in this great CNN opinion piece.

    “Don’t let Brian Kemp steal Georgia’s gubernatorial election”

    NO, it is not okay to harass anyone, whether they be a “public figure” or not. Partisan bias like this creep defending the “non-violent protesters” who caused chaos outside the home of Tucker Carlson, only serves to divide our country further. Please read all of this woman’s replies as well. I’ve got a feeling if the exact same thing had been done to Hillary Clinton at her home, she wouldn’t be using these pathetic excuses for Carlson’s harassment at his home like “he is a public figure,” also finding other excuses for those SmashRacismDC monsters. Now, when it comes to Antifa and the alt-right extremists, we unfortunately do have to say “both sides,” as painful as that is. Please be decent, be rational, in other words, please don’t be this woman. Thank you.

    Ditto to everything Emma Vigeland says in this video here.

    “Hillary Clinton 2020 Rumblings Intensify. God Help Us.”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjAgwH9jNkM

    Gallup poll from September 28th, 2018. “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s favorability with U.S. adults is unchanged from last November – remaining at a record low (36%).”

    Personally, I think that if HRC does run for President again it will be a very similar result as last time, where she wins the popular vote again but by a lesser margin and loses the electoral college again but by a slightly greater margin. I hope that this dark future does not come to pass, but I’ve learned to never be too cynical when it comes to politics. Yes, I don’t believe for a second she will lose the Democratic Party nomination. Too many #StillWithHer sheep who thinks Russian hacking and fake news, “Bernie Bros,” racism/sexism, and minority voter suppression are the ONLY reasons she lost the election, rather than the main fact that Hillary was seen as too much of an establishment insider who had told several lies too many in her long and divisive political career.

    It needs to be said that America is more divided than ever now, not only in Congress, but with racist freaks like these High School graduates in Wisconsin, I realistically don’t expect the overt hatred in this country to die down anytime soon.

    One hell of a thread, my heart goes out to all poorly-educated fools who have been brainwashed into believing Nazi propaganda and especially to those who have been cruelly targeted at the school for not being “Aryan” enough, I guess. :\

    A positive news story to balance things out, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined the protest at notorious corporate sellout Nancy Pelosi’s office to advocate for her and other Dem leaders to push for “a plan for a Green New Deal to stop the Climate Crisis.” AOC being a brilliant and beautiful progressive badass as usual. Love her so much!

    Twitter comments are 99% cancer nowadays by the way. I’d literally bet money that most (probably about 80%) of those laughable “StillWithHer” and “NeverBernie” accounts are either bots, paid corporate-sponsored astroturf, or Republicans pretending to be Democrats in order to turn sentiment against progressives within the party itself. Nancy Pelosi isn’t an ally of working class progressives of all genders and races with her pathetic weak statements on “bipartisanship” in the age of Trump. She is in my opinion the opposite of a “master legislator” and I am dreaming that she miraculously loses the Speaker position in the final vote on the House floor, even though I know that is almost definitely not going to happen, sadly.

    It’s really sad that we are so divided as a nation. We are all human beings who basically want the same things in this life (or I’d like to think so, at least). I’m honestly just so tired of the party vs party mentality that we all have nowadays. I don’t know that there is one person from any party that could ever unite us. We’re broken, and I don’t know that we can ever be fixed. It hurts my heart, to tell you the truth.

    Corporations and Wall Street donors essentially buying out so many politicians from the establishment ends of both major parties will only lead to more of a revolt from the fake populist right and genuine populist left.

    I’m rooting for sanity and for the working class to stop getting screwed over by elitist billionaire-bought politicians who care far more about representing the wants and needs of their rich %1 donors than of the 99% who make up most up the actual voters anyway.

    We need to focus on only electing politicians who don’t take any big donor money or corporate funds, We need politicians to represent the ideals of the many, not the few who want us divided (by skin color, or gender, religious identity, etc) and conquered.
