    This'll warm yer black hearts:

    Rudy Giuliani is fuming over his fractious divorce court clash with estranged wife Judith Nathan, claiming she’s trying to “extort” him for millions with a “vindictive . . . campaign of hate.”

    Hissing Hizzoner was enraged after Wednesday’s divorce hearing, at which Nathan’s attorney, Bernard Clair, repeatedly needled himby dropping the name of Giuliani’s friend Maria Ryan, who is married. Giuliani — who has repeatedly said his relationship with Ryan is platonic — hit back at Nathan outside of court on Thursday, alleging that his wife of 15 years is shamelessly striving to shake him down.

    President Trump’s lawyer says Nathan greedily demanded $67,000 a month in spousal support, including $25,000 for designer clothes. He accuses her of keeping $7 million he gave her during their marriage while simultaneously scheming to squeeze millions more out of him.

    Well of course. To know Rudy is to hate him. Pretty much true of any Republican voters' heroes. The only decent ones, personally, are the politicians that the voters turned their back on, for example McCain, or W.

    The dude is racist / white supremacist. Pundits are tiptoeing around this but it is time to call a spade a spade.

    I've only seen AA pundits on tv openly calling him a racist. Whitelandian talking heads think that's going too far. He has "alternate facts" on race relations to them I guess. Can't admit we voted one for president in the 21st century.

    About the only Whitelandian I've seen call Trump a racist is Michael Cohen.

    Just finished reading this article and even the writer is hesitant about directly calling the quotes from Gohmert and King what it is.... hate speech.

    From the article:

    "Gohmert and King have denounced the shooting, and there’s no reason to doubt they genuinely are saddened by this massacre."

    What? There is EVERY reason to doubt they are genuinely saddened by this massacre. EVERY reason! Why do we treat these pathetic a-holes with kid gloves?

    To be fair, the level of animosity and hate and willingness to go to violence by the right is probably on the minds of some of those pundits. I sit here safely at my desk in my home calling them White Supremacists, but when I go outside, I don't look like my avatar. So I'm fairly safe from unexpected attacks. But the pundits have their full names put on TV/media publication and are more at risk of direct violent attacks. And many of them have families and kids. Yes, I'd like them to call White Supremacy what it is, and to call hate speech what it is, both when they occur, but I also understand the reason for not actually saying those words. Some people have a hurdle to cross, or multiple hurdles, before speaking. One person I'm thinking of in particular is Alicia Rosco of NPR. Even as a Black woman, it took her a long time call hate speech hate speech. I know some of that was her journalistic integrity, some of it being NPR not jumping to the extremes too quickly, and some probably come from her editors/producers. And she has a family. Now she does call hate speech what it is, and I've heard her call White Supremacy what it is on the Politics Podcast. But it just took time for her to actually utter those words.

    That article if f*cking devastating.
    That was a great job by Matt Fuller.

    He should have left out the commentary about how those Congressman "genuinely are saddened" as there is no support for such as statement and just stuck to the actual statements.

    The rest is terrific.

    A two year old article linked in the article about King and Gohmart. Thanks to it, today I learned that there is a French "literary" equivalent of The Turner Diaries called The Camp of the Saints which, unsurprisingly, Steve Bannon is a fan of.

    The plot of The Camp of the Saints {by Jean Raspail} follows a poor Indian demagogue, named “the turd-eater” because he literally eats shit, and the deformed, apparently psychic child who sits on his shoulders. Together, they lead an “armada” of 800,000 impoverished Indians sailing to France. Dithering European politicians, bureaucrats and religious leaders, including a liberal pope from Latin America, debate whether to let the ships land and accept the Indians or to do the right thing — in the book’s vision — by recognizing the threat the migrants pose and killing them all.

    The non-white people of Earth, meanwhile, wait silently for the Indians to reach shore. The landing will be the signal for them to rise up everywhere and overthrow white Western society.

    The French government eventually gives the order to repel the armada by force, but by then the military has lost the will to fight. Troops battle among themselves as the Indians stream on shore, trampling to death the left-wing radicals who came to welcome them. Poor black and brown people literally overrun Western civilization. Chinese people pour into Russia; the queen of England is forced to marry her son to a Pakistani woman; the mayor of New York must house an African-American family at Gracie Mansion. Raspail’s rogue heroes, the defenders of white Christian supremacy, attempt to defend their civilization with guns blazing but are killed in the process.

    Calgues, the obvious Raspail stand-in, is one of those taking up arms against the migrants and their culturally “cuckolded” white supporters. Just before killing a radical hippie, Calgues compares his own actions to past heroic, sometimes mythical defenses of European Christendom. He harkens back to famous battles that fit the clash-of-civilizations narrative — the defense of Rhodes against the Ottoman Empire, the fall of Constantinople to the same — and glorifies colonial wars of conquest and the formation of the Ku Klux Klan.

    Only white Europeans like Calgues are portrayed as truly human in The Camp of the Saints. The Indian armada brings “thousands of wretched creatures” whose very bodies arouse disgust: “Scraggy branches, brown and black … All bare, those fleshless Gandhi-arms.” Poor brown children are spoiled fruit “starting to rot, all wormy inside, or turned so you can’t see the mold.”

    I'm sure with Ayesha and many other POC at NPR, it had a lot more to do with the producers and people in-house not allowing certain things to be said. This process has been described on shows like Code Switch a few times along with explanatory commas.

    @Auriaprottu and @appoo I had this discussion with a Jewish guy in the rugby chatroom. I wanted to share my thoughts as to why there is a more anti-Israel mood.
