Why am I not surprised by this?

Set aside the question of whether President Donald Trump’s rhetorical flirtations with white nationalism enabled Saturday’s mass shooting in Pittsburgh. What’s undeniable is that his administration has hobbled the infrastructure designed to prevent such murders.

In the waning days of Barack Obama’s administration, the Department of Homeland Security awarded a set of grants to organizations working to counter violent extremism, including among white supremacists. One of the grantees was Life After Hate, which The Hill has called “one of the only programs in the U.S. devoted to helping people leave neo-Nazi and other white supremacy groups.” Another grant went to researchers at the University of North Carolina who were helping young people develop media campaigns aimed at preventing their peers from embracing white supremacy and other violent ideologies. But soon after Trump took office, his administration canceled both of these grants. In its first budget, it requested no funding for any grants in this field.

Go ahead, tell me again that this administration does not embrace white supremacy. 

I need the laugh.

    And I think the only accurate descriptive word for the folks shown in the photo is, well, “deplorable.”

    “To compare Martin Luther King to Robert E. Lee is not only a dangerous comparison, it is completely historically inaccurate,” Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter, said in an email. “Dr. King saved lives ― Robert E. Lee destroyed them.”

    Editor’s Note: The “caravan” is not a threat to anyone in the United States, and it won’t be here for weeks or months. No one is able to explain why Trump is declaring this a national emergency that requires troops deployed within the United States, or why they are deployed now, but critics accuse Trump of using this as an election boost for his party.
    Update: The Pentagon has identified about 7,000 troops that could be deployed to the border with Mexico if needed, a U.S. official told Reuters on Wednesday.

      I just read trump is talking about sending 15,000 troops.

        By tomorrow morning, it will be 50,000 troops. And more and more each day until Election Day.

    “This is the kind of abuse of executive power that we conservatives have been fighting for years.”

    Chavez said Trump was acting exactly like the predecessor he so openly despises, President Obama.

    ” “I think it was ultimately about slavery at that time and rights that should come to former slaves.”

    The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, however, does not mention slavery as a requirement for bestowing citizenship rights on people born in the U.S.”

    Wasn’t there some change in policy after trump got in office, that the DOJ wasn’t suppose to track hate crimes any longer?

    The photo at the top of this article is a group of people who consider themselves to be “the master race.”

    I doubt there is a full set of teeth or a high school diploma among the group.
