GOP House members on Thursday erupted in heated opposition after Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) condemned their objections to Washington, D.C., statehood as “racist trash” during a speech on the chamber floor.“I have had enough of my colleagues’ racist insinuations that somehow the people of Washington D.C. are incapable or even unworthy of our democracy,” Jones, a progressive first-term lawmaker, said. (Tweet/Video) His comments triggered an uproar from Republicans on the floor.“The truth is there is no good faith argument for disenfranchising 700,000 people, most of whom are people of color,” Jones continued

"Racist" is what lie-berals call anyone beating them in an argument because they can't come up with anything to actually refute what the other person said!!! The word "racist" has been so over-used in the last few years that it has lost it's power. It really means nothing any more -- which is sad since real racism should be deplored and condemned.

The left just does not know any history at all. I think the moral posing is an excuse. They call it all racist or patriarchal or whatever as an excuse for knowing essentially nothing about anything that ever happened

Fine. I'm all for counting the good people of Washington DC as residents of the state of Maryland for the purposes of voting for Senators and Congresscritters. Heck, I'd even let them add a 436th seat in Congress so Maryland doesn't "lose" a seat.

Yeah, those Founding Fathers were really racists! They just knew that 250 years in the future, that non-caucasian feral animals would occupy the federal district, and they therefore wrote the Constitution to preclude statehood for the federal district

Maxine Waters, who recently urged protesters to “get more confrontational.”The intolerance for white people and cops in general seems to have been a growing trend over the past year but Democrats really showed their true colors by condemning a police officer this week who many argue made the right move as he was forced to make a split-second decision to shoot a knife-wielding

Adam Toledo is a name that has likely saturated your newsfeed over the past month. He was a 13-year-old Mexican-American boy who was fatally shot by a police officer on Chicago’s West Side not one month ago.This week, that name was overshadowed by Ma’Khia Bryant, a black teenager who died at the hands of law enforcement in Ohio. In both cases, leftist politicians and Twitter-verified “journalists” couldn’t get the story out fast enough, absent facts, video, or nuance — but the headlines wrote themselves: “Racist Cop Shoots Unarmed Minority.”Also in both cases, the stories turned out to be completely wrong.

It comes as about one-third of CPS high school students returned for in-person learning this week for the first time since the pandemic began. “With less than two months remaining in the school year and reduced daily in-person attendance, we feel that the presence of full-time SROs is not necessary at this time,”

This is the most significant move by the federal government to redefine the nature of state-funded public schools in U.S. history. Although the current effort to push public schools receiving federal funding to adopt a detailed indoctrination agenda may feel new and overwhelming for parents, the truth is that the Biden attempt is simply the last phase in a decades-

n the debate over whether one should or should not get the COVID vaccination, much has been said about the “science.” However, I’m not sure any encyclopedic knowledge of “science” is required to make this health decision. Simple statistical analysis should suffice to inform one’s ultimate decision. Statistics is primarily a study of probabilities. Fortunately, as regards COVID mortality rates, these probabilities are now known. That is, COVID mortality statistics broken down by age cohorts are now “known knowables.” For example, through statistics as of April 7, the odds an American under the age of 25 would die from COVID were 1-in-106,217.
