Ever since the #BlackLivesMatter movement got going shortly after the shooting of Mike Brown there has been an attempt by (overwhelmingly white) conservatives to challenge with a very consistent meme of “Where is our protest?” The meme works this way…people find an incident where a person shoots and wounds or … Continue Reading Where Is the Protest
There has been a trend among Conservatives and Republicans to compare Obama to “tough foreign leaders” unfavorably. Most recently, it was regarding Netenyahu and his speech. A speech that was pretty much the same one he gave about in 2003 about Iraq. His 2003 speech missed on pretty much every … Continue Reading If Only Obama Were More Like Genghis Khan
