I see you. You got a problem with those Americans fighting for their place at the table. You got a problem with them because you feel like “subgroups” of Americans are being divisive.

Well, if you have a problem with that take it up with the Founders. “We hold these truths to be self-evident [starts singing Hamilton] that all men are created equal”—sorry. Big up. Respect, Lin-Manuel.

Those fighting to be included in the ideal of equality are not being divisive.
Those fighting to keep those people out are.

Jon Stewart takes on the conservative media’s support for Trump on the last night of the 2016 RNC
Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Respect, Jon.

As your president, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology. Believe me.
—  Donald Trump actually said these words last night — including the Q — when accepting his party’s nomination. Not mentioned? How he’ll protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of his own party.

We were promised a riot. In Cleveland, we got a block party instead. Read more here. 


This ‘Latinos Para Trump’ sign doesn’t seem right

Even though Donald Trump doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to Latino issues, at the RNC last night there appeared to be a dedicated group of supporters holding signs that said “Latinos Para Trump.” 

Indeed, some questioned whether the group was in fact Latino, though obviously one can be both light-skinned and Latino. The more damning evidence that this group may not be who it claims: Well, that sign’s not Spanish. 

Over the past few decades, Republicans and Democrats have become more and more sharply divided – not just ideologically, but also geographically. Democratic candidates tend to do best in the nation’s urban areas, while Republicans find their strongest support in more rural areas

Most of the biggest counties in the U.S. have become more presidentially Democratic over the past four decades. We analyzed county-level presidential-voting patterns in the 83 counties that were among the 100 most populous in both 1976 and 2012. In more than half (46 counties), the Democratic-Republican split shifted in the Democrats’ favor by more than 20 percentage points; only nine became less Democratic to any degree.

Explaining the Difference
  • 6yr-old son:what's the difference between democrats and republicans?
  • Mom:Well, the way that I understand it, is that: a democrat is like a really nice aunt who promises to take you to Disney World but something always comes up and she never follows through. A republican is like a grumpy uncle who tells you he can't afford to take you to Disney World, but later you find out he went without you.
The Donald Trump phenomenon. AKA 30% of dumbass (racist?) Americans are like: “This man is amazing!” And 70% of Americans and the rest of the world is like: “Um, this guy is obviously fucking insane and will probably cause WW3.”

Yeah, cool. The nuclear holocaust is gonna happen because Ezekiel in the trailer park liked that Trump talked about nothing but building walls against evil OUTSIDERS~!.

I hate you, Ezekiel. And your bad fucking teeth. 

I’ve really got only one question after the Republican Convention.

Why are they all so fucking terrified of everything?

Seriously, how is it possible they aren’t ashamed of being such whiny cowards?
