My thought for the day Why does western art always depict Jesus as white when as a middle eastern Jew he would have been brown-skinned.

Trump’s appeals to white anxiety are not ‘dog whistles’ – they’re racism

Today news coverage shows that Americans broadly understand the racial connotations when Donald Trump talks about “restoring law and order” and protecting “the suburbs.” Such phrases are no longer dog whistles, though they are still referred to as such.

“The reason why JUF and other Zionist organizations in the US are spending so much money and time attacking Palestinians and our supporters is because the exact opposite is true.”

“Israel is finally being seen – even in the US – as the criminal, racist, apartheid state that it is, and that is because our organizing and activism is paying dividends,” Abudayyeh added.

Trump Dismisses Calls For Police Reform Because Cops 'Kill More White People'

Thick as a Brick (ODT)

When she asked Trump, “why are African Americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country?” Trump’s response was not simply telling, it was piteously predictable. “So are white people. So are white people. What a terrible question.” But Trump wasn’t done digging that stupid racist’s hole, because this wouldn’t be a Donald Trump interview if he didn’t add some kind of complete lie to his ignorant response.

Trump went on to explain: “So are white people. More white people, by the way. More white people!” This may come as news to you because … it isn’t a real thing. It’s as factually accurate as saying Donald Trump is not the embodiment of corrupt narcissistic mediocrity. As many point out, while there are a lot more white folks than Black people, Black men are three and a half times more likely to be killed by law enforcement than their white counterparts. But. Let’s pretend that Donald Trump is right. Let us pretend that there is in fact no real racism, and our country’s long history of racism, specifically against Black people, ended with Barack Obama’s election to office as a secret Muslim communist revolutionary…Trump’s opinion of law enforcement is that killing American citizens willy-nilly isn’t a problem. In fact, bringing it up—specifically bringing it up in regards to racial injustice—is a ”terrible question.”

Guess who said it: Tucker Carlson or a far-right shooter | Nathan Robinson | Opinion | The Guardian

‘Tucker Carlson’s rhetoric about non-white people has long been virtually identical to that of white supremacist terrorists in New Zealand and El Paso.’

Why has Carlson gone on holiday? To avoid the flack his bullshit caused and the number of advertisers lost.Even Andrew Bolt has dumbed down a little claiming he’s the victim. You shouldn’t be surprised to see them or simalr Murdoch men at CPAC Sydney (ODT)

The Fox New host’s nightly diatribes are making the US an ever more terrifying place for immigrants and people of color

Carlson’s rhetoric about non-white people has long been virtually identical to that of white supremacist terrorists in New Zealand and El Paso. Here, for example, is a passage from Carlson’s most recent book, on the topic of why “diversity” makes us weaker:

When confronted or pressed for details, [proponents of diversity] retreat into a familiar platitude, which they repeat like a zen koan: diversity is our strength. But is diversity our strength? The less we have in common, the stronger we are? Is that true of families? Is it true in neighborhoods or businesses? Of course not. Then why is it true of America? Nobody knows. Nobody’s even allowed to ask the question.

And here is an excerpt from the manifesto issued by the man who killed 51 people in a New Zealand mosque:

Why is diversity said to be our greatest strength? Does anyone even ask why? It is spoken like a mantra and repeated ad infinitum … But no one ever seems to give a reason why. What gives a nation strength? And how does diversity increase that strength? What part of diversity causes this increase in strength? No one can give an answer.

Trump Attacks Elijah Cummings As ‘Brutal Bully’ From ‘Rodent Infested’ District | HuffPost Australia

The New America (ODT)

President Donald Trump slammed one of his leading congressional opponents, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), in a Saturday morning Twitter rant calling him a “brutal bully” and berating his majority-black Baltimore district as a “rodent infested mess.”

It’s the latest in a series of attacks in which the president has used language widely condemned as racist to insult a nonwhite member of Congress, this time prompted by Cummings’ comments about inhumane conditions at the southern border.

Three black women are currently suing Fox News over “top-down racial harassment.” Bill O’Reilly recently made racist remarks against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), the latest in the star Fox host’s long history of bigoted remarks. And it’s not just O’Reilly — the entire network is filled with bigotry. Here is a supercut showing the worst of Fox

This man is our Minister for the Indigenous people of Australia. He hasn’t learnt a thing.

Mr Abbott this moon your talking about  was a home to the First People. It wasn’t a barren waste land to them ever. It was their land filled with their history their stories their culture. It merely was a wasteland in your racist mind’s eye. Stop making the First People of this country irrelevant.

There is increasing concern about a backlash against Muslim Australians, with police taking care to say that anti-terrorism operations were to do with criminality, not religion. RacistIslamic leaders have also been upset at some media coverage of recent events.

The treasurer of the Islamic Council of Victoria, Eugenia Flynn, said the anti-Muslim incidents “run the gamut from verbal abuse on the street right through vandalising of property, vehicles and then to actual assaults, physical assaults.’

She said the council was encouraging people to report any incident to police.

IF Use Section 18C Against Newscorp commentators,Andrew Bolt, 2GB Alan Jones, ADL Australian Defense League

Now is the time to show why we retained Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act and show the Muslim Community they are truly the AUSTRALIAN MUSLIM COMMUNITY.

Andrew Bolt vilifies and demeans a section of the Australian community as a matter of course on a daily basis. If we are going to war isn’t it time to show a united front. He’s your mate Mr Abbott shut the man up. Bolt uses the term Islam as a form of abuse and insult not in ignorance but with intent. His purpose is not to integrate but rather segregate the community throughout Australia. Professional Racist

The good guys Mr Bolt will never catch up with crime and by and large you dream the impossible crime is a universal feature every society. Even if it’s called disobedience in the Bolt family
