@WhyTryJustDo  Lincoln wanted to deport all of the emancipated. Truman briefly joined the Klan. LBJ was a segregationist. Again: I don’t know if Biden will be a good president if he wins; from a historical perspective, pushing him in the right direction is a lighter lift than others.

Kamau Bell, who has interviewed members of the klan'>Ku Klux Klan, has joked that he “samples racism” the way Anthony Bourdain sampled food. On potentially going on Tucker Carlson's show, Bell said “I’d rather talk to the Klan again. At least they’re honest”

One teacher checked for my horns. Another taught us Judaism isn't a religion but a race characterized by "big noses and frizzy hair." The Klan burned crosses on my grandpa's front lawn. #JewishPrivilege 

So it was a 12-year old boy who didn't just abuse Wilf Zaha but sent him threatening Klan imagery. His age alters the legal position but you'd hope the police investigate how that filth came to be in his head.

Whatever happens, we have lost. Half this nation voted for white supremacy, sexual assault, and more. The Klan is happy. We should be sad.

A message to Mueller: Stay strong and stand tall. Continue to investigate them all. You are indeed answering the people's call. The klan'>Kremlin Klan is going to fall. Around you the Democrats are building a wall. We look forward to the day, to prison they will all be hauled.

Trump has made it clear - w/ Bannon & Gorka in the WH, & the Klan in the streets, it is now the White Supremacists' House. #Charlottesviille 

Our first black president will have to hand over the White House to someone endorsed by the klan'>Ku Klux Klan. Just let that sink in.
