"The chuckleheads in Charlottesville aren't soldiers of free speech, or American values, or the preservation of their white history, whatever that even means. They are lousy domestic terrorists. They aren't trying to 'unite the right.' They are slow-thinking and disenfranchised whites looking for a cause with almost flop-sweat desperation, punks with torches, famous now in the easiest possible way in America. For being stupid."
"Trump's barbaric policy of separating immigrant children from their parents and putting them in cages has run into a buzz saw recently.

Many see it as part of an effort to impose a dictatorship on the whole country."
"On June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger landed at the port of Galveston to extend Union military and civil authority over Texas. The most controversial and far-reaching of his civil edicts, General Order No. 3, enforced the terms of the Emancipation Proclamation and liberated more than 200,000 Black slaves. That event is commemorated today as Juneteenth."
