Trumps Racialized Scapegoating: Tim Wise on the How of Trump’s Racism Appeal

Anti-racism expert explains Trump’s scapegoating appeal to whites — and it will give you chills

Anti-racism educator Tim Wise explained on Sunday how presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump used “racialized scapegoating” to appeal to white voters while “othering other people.”

“If the only reason for Trump’s support was economic anxiety then people of color should be flocking to Trump,” Wise told CNN’s Brian Stelter. “Because black folks, for instance, are twice as likely to be out of work as white folks, three times as likely to be poor, have 1/15 the net worth, nine years less life expectancy in large part due to economic inequality.”

“There’s a link between the kind of economic anxiety that white folks are feeling and this larger political or racial anxiety,” he said.

Wise likened…

th

The Aberdeen-Churchville Republican Tea-Party: Mayor Patrick McGrady, Jason Kolligs and Dan Lambros.

 

 

The Aberdeen (Md) City Manager Hiring Commission  comprised of two Tea Party Republicans,( Jason Kolligs and Dan Lambros)  as well as Peter Dacey, Steven Johnson and Raymond Warfield chose Randy Robertson as Aberdeen’s new City  Manager.  Mr. Robertson was recently the City Manager of Cordova, Alaska.(Pop 2,037)

The Mayor highlighted Mr. Robertson’s career by suggesting he had a  “superman  resume” .The Mayor then emphasized his 30 year military career prior to his city manager experience.

Little was mentioned about his city manager experience which is what he is being hired for.

No mention was made of his getting a “lukewarm” evaluation in 2013 after one year and five months as city manager in Vestavia Hills, Alabama (pop. 34,000). Mr. Robertson resigned from  Vestavia Hills after the evaluation  and received a  $153K payout.

No mention was made of Mr. Robertson first  city manger job  in Ashland, Alabama (pop 2,1037) where he resigned after nine months service.

Robertson was also city manager of Mt.Juliet,Tennesee (pop. 25,500) for  four years and 4 months. And he has been city manager in Cordova, Alaska (pop. 2,239) for the last two years and 10 months.

Mt.Juliet residents were upset over his four years there because he raised taxes “in a city that had doubled its  revenue in the previous 5 years” Other residents wanted to warn  his next community  Vestavaia Hills , but decided  “They don’t need to know the circus is coming to town…they’ll find out soon enough” [Mt Juliet residents were apprehesive about  alerting   Vestavia Hills  about Mr. Robertson poor management for fear that Mr.  Robertson might return  to Mt. Juliet]

Palin, Teabaggers and the Dunning-Kruger Effect

May 26, 2016

Wickersham's Conscience

The first of the original Dunning-Kruger experiments involved a group of undergraduate students who were asked – just as they walked out of a final exam – to rate their performance for the class just completed. In particular, they were asked how well they had mastered the course material, and what they predicted their raw score would be on the test they had just taken.

After comparing the student’s own impressions with their actual performance, a clear pattern emerged in Dunning and Kruger’s data: the worst students grossly overestimated their own performance, while the top students somewhat underestimated theirs. You can get a clear sense of the extremity of the poor students’ tendency to overestimate their own performance when you consider these results: in the bottom quartile, while their actual performance may have

put them in the 12th percentile, they estimated their mastery of the course material to fall in…

Candidate Who Called Obama a Gay Prostitute Loses Education Board Race

In a stunning comeback, State Board of Education hopeful Keven Ellis won Tuesday’s District 9 Republican primary runoff over Mary Lou Bruner, who drew national attention for social media posts touting far-right conspiracy theories and other fringe views.

The East Texas Tea Party activist and former schoolteacher had been favored to succeed in the race after nearly winning the March 1 primary outright and accumulating heavy support from influential conservative groups that typically hold big sway in low-turnout runoff elections. But Ellis, a Lufkin chiropractor who presides over the local school board, maintained a double-digit lead over Bruner throughout Tuesday night, and that lead widened as vote returns rolled in.

He ended the night 18 points ahead of Bruner, with the final vote showing Ellis…

Violent Protests At (C)hump Rally in Albequerque

Feel the Love!

The group passing through the crowd in the first video aren’t necessarily Drumph “supporters”. They are the group selected (or paid to) stand behind the candidate during the speech so that the TV Cameras get the image of an “inclusive” crowd. Finding black, Hispanic, or Asian Trump supporters in the actual crowd would be difficult, so it is common at Republican events to “pepper” the crowd with people of color, by paying folks they find on the street to attend, shout, and cheer. It is a common Media practice and goes back to the early days of Rock and Roll, where “Clickers” were people salted into an audience to loudly clap and cheer to get the audience going, or to at least provide the illusion, in the event the Artist in question was not very good – that people were actually cheering their performance.

Rep. Keith Ellison – “Like Chickens for Col Sanders”

Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison: ‘Muslims who support Trump is like chickens for Colonel Sanders’

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) — the first Muslim elected to Congress — denounced the idea that Donald Trump would win many Muslim voters over on Tuesday, The Hill reported.

“Muslims who support Trump is like chickens for Colonel Sanders, you know what I mean?” Ellison said during an event hosted by the National Press Club.

The Hill had previously reported that Walid Phares, Trump’s head foreign policy advisor, had “quietly opened backchannels” with Muslim-American communities. Phares said many of those interactions were prompted by Muslim Republicans “seeking additional information” on the Republican candidate’s positions.

“These people know what they want – they’re concerned about the well-being of their communities and believe that Trump has the right economic and social agenda,” Phares said. “But they’re…

The Drumph’s Extensive Mafia Connections…

As I said in an earlier piece, you can’t be involved in a major real estate deal in that part of the world and not wind up with some shady connections….

And the Trump is dirtier than most.

Just What Were Donald Trump’s Ties to the Mob?

In his signature book, The Art of the Deal, Donald Trump boasted that when he wanted to build a casino in Atlantic City, he persuaded the state attorney general to limit the investigation of his background to six months. Most potential owners were scrutinized for more than a year. Trump argued that he was “clean as a whistle”—young enough that he hadn’t had time to get into any sort of trouble. He got the sped-up background check, and eventually got the casino license.

But Trump was not clean as a whistle. Beginning three years earlier, he’d hired mobbed-up firms to erect Trump Tower…

“America Was Never Great” Hat

May 21, 2016

Btx3's Blog

A young black woman decided to make a political point about the Drumph’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. If you are black, or a minority in this country – things have never been “Great” in America. I mean – how exactly was slavery “great”? Jim Crow? Young black people murdered on the streets by out-of-control police…The misnomer “War on Drugs” which in reality is a “War on Minorities”. The highest level of incarceration in the world, with more people incarcerated than communist China or the Russian Dictatorship combined! And the majority of people incarcerated are minorities.

I men – European countries are kicking our ass almost across the board. They have better schools, better child care, better elderly care, better health care, and their is a higher likelihood of economic upward mobility for their poor and middle class. Their transportation systems kick our behind.

Break The Tie-Vote Democraticly—-Nominate Stephen Smith For Council Seat Four

Harford for Obama, Bernie, Hillary And Warren

The Aberdeen City government has been hacked by the new Mayor…Patrick McGrady…a card carrying Tea Party Republican.  The Voters voted. DeBonis And Smith tied with 655 votes each for council seat four.   The Council was suppose to break the tie-vote  between Democrat Smith and Tea Party Republican DeBonis. The Council was given a chance  to support DeBonis, a McGrady crony . The Council rejected him.  Now the Council  has  not been given a chance to vote on the other tie-vote candidate— Steve Smith …because the Mayor is a partisan political hack.  Instead, the Mayor says he will nominate another Tea Party Republican crony that lost by coming in eighth. The Mayor  doesn’t have the RIGHT to thwart the will of the voters. He has hacked the democratic process.

The Mayor should follow the law and the will of the voters. Break the tie-vote. Nominate Smith and stop frustrating the …

RepublicanAegis – Is Aberdeen TeaParty Republican Mayor McGrady A Partisan Political Hack???

May 21, 2016

Harford for Obama, Bernie, Hillary And Warren

005

On Dec 21, the Aberdeen City Council unanimously rejected Mayor McGradys first nomination to fill the counsel seat vacancy. His choice was his Tea Party Republican crony  Sean DeBonis (644 votes) who tied for the fourth seat with incumbent Stephen Smith (644 votes).  The next fair and democratic step should have been the nomination of the Democratic incumbent Stephen Smith. Instead , according to Councilman Tim Lindecamp, Mayor McGrady has told council members that his next nominee will be another Tea Party political crony Jason Kolligs ( 511 votes) who came in 8th in the recent election.

This is political bullshit. Mayor McGrady is corrupting the political election process and the integrity of the Aberdeen City government. He is nothing less than a political partisan hack.
