The Guard Is In Chains

Today I saw another article decrying identity politics. I’ll confess, I run hot and cold on this.

Are The White Nationalists Winning?

There’s a powerful article over on the Atlantic’s website that everyone should read. In The White Nationalists Are Winning, Adam Serwer argues that White Nationalists are actually succeeding in setting the direction and tone of conservative politics today. While it may look as though they’ve been humiliated at their recent rallies, he says, the torch…

Arizona Republican Says US Not White Enough

Ever wonder on what is really behind the appeal of Trump to a certain class of Americans. You can stop wondering, now. An Arizona State Rep., David Stringer, has just been caught on video saying that America has to stop immigration, and now, or America won’t be a white country any more. “Sixty percent of…
