You say you are “genuinely curious” ~ BTW My problem with WaPo is not that there is white nationalists that support Mr. Trump. My issue is blowing an article in an Arkansas tabloid … which is no longer online … into a blanket statement that the “official KKK newspaper” endorsed djt. This was conflated into the “KKK endorses Trump” trope, which is not true. This also served as a distraction from the more serious issues that DJT had, like his crookedness, emotional instability, and ties to Russia/communism/organized crime. ~ Dear @HuffingtonPost Asking me for my email address is not going to make me more likely to look at your clickbait. ~ We are talking at cross purposes. I mention that WaPo has given a minor newspaper article much more attention than it deserves. This minor newspaper article was used to justify the claim that the KKK endorsed DJT. This claim distracted from the more serious charges against DJT, and arguably led to his election. Yes, the KKK is an obsolete bunch of kooks that wear bedsheets. They are best ignored, as is the WaPo. ~ There is a meme You list 10 bands, and invite people to guess which one you did not see. I saw nine of these acts at the Great Southeast Music Music Hall: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Steve Martin, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Weather Report, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Sex Pistols, Chick Corea and Return to Forever, Keith Jarrett, Martin Mull, Melissa Manchester ~ Thirty poems is not happening this Aprl. I only have eleven so far. ~ @GonzoVice I miss Nixon. Compared to these Nazis we have in the White House now, Richard Nixon was a flaming liberal. ~ Mr. Obama is a politician through and through. The good news is that he won two terms. Maybe if Hillary more of a skillful politician, she would have won. Also, the Democrats seemed to be smarter when BHO was running. Did anyone ever say “If you vote for Mitt Romney you are a racist”? ~ Bret Stephens … Ann Coulter … Barack Obama aka who what & why? ~ Important Please switch to another browser or quit incognito mode to play our quizzes. ~ if your tongue was made of glass, it would never get anywhere near my ass ~ @ChrchCurmudgeon They’re releasing a brand new font for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
