From the Guardian here:
A proposed visit to Bethlehem and the Nativity church – now cancelled – had been intended as the highlight of a tour of the Middle East next week.
That tour has been thrown into disarray by Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the consequent refusal of Palestinian and many Christian leaders to meet Pence.
Part of the reason is that Pence – who stood next to Trump during his announcement – is seen by Palestinians as having been a key influence on Trump regarding the decision, and appears to have made little effort to repair the damage.
Mike Pence could care less about anyone except his Christian fascist base. He’s a holier than thou hateful fuck and I would love to see him pelted with rocks.
He deserves it, he’s a piece of shit.
Headline from NBC News:
The unbearable hypocrisy of Roy Moore’s Christian rhetoric
It’s a judgment call as to what’s worse — Roy Moore’s teen pussy hunts or Mike Pence’s hatred of gay folks.
But they should both be denounced widely as I’m doing here.
From the New York Times:
Vice President Mike Pence has undertaken extensive personal outreach to donors, fueling speculation that he is preparing for his own political future.
And I don’t use the word lightly for Jesus Pence. He believes in the gay conversion therapy bullshit, the ‘religious freedom’/deny gay folks commercial rights, he’s a big fan of controlling women’s bodies.
He looks very reasonable, he’s got the gray hair, he’s a serious, thoughtful looking dude. The problem is he’s a fascist, a real one, not just one that has a big mouth and likes to urinate on people (we’re looking at you Donald).
Yes Trump is a train wreck, I get it.
However, if you take him out are you going to be happier with Mike Pence, a Christian fascist at the helm? Hates women, hates gay people, probably hates on Muslims very hard due to his hard Christianity.
How is that going to improve your life? I understand that Pence is not going to be as dramatic and draining but he could actually do more damage than Trump with his calm exterior.
That’s not an upgrade as far as I’m concerned.
From Bloomberg here:
“Mr. Sessions’s conduct as U.S attorney from his politically motivated voting fraud prosecutions to his indifference toward criminal violations of civil rights laws indicates that he lacks the temperament, fairness and judgment to be a federal judge,” Warren said, quoting a letter from the late wife of slain civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., who was discussing the 1986 nomination of Sessions to the federal bench.
Then the lizard from Utah Orrin Hatch admonished Warren to think of Sessions’ wife. I’m sure she’s perfectly aware of where he stands on race relations.
Now a personal attack would be to say he has a tiny dick, or his dad caught him around the back end of a greased pig when he was a strapping young man, or he likes to watch prostitutes pee on each other while he pleasures himself.
You get the idea.
From CNN here:
(CNN)Rep. Sean Duffy said Tuesday “there is a difference” between terror acts by white people and those committed by Muslims.
This is racist yo! A person murdered in a terrorist act is a person murdered in a terrorist act with no regard for the race of the perpetrator or the victim.
Saying that violence committed against Muslims by the U.S. government in our name is exactly the same as a shootup at a rock club in Paris.
Dead is dead and to say that white folks don’t use terror in this war on terror is straight up ridiculous.
