Re: “One Hot Potato

He's a pure and simple racist. I've read his writings; it's indisputable. That so many Republican figures and legislators are attending this event speaks directly to their willingness to support racism and racists. By attending this dinner, part of their ticket price will go to Murray. They are paying money to support a racist. It's not complicated.

Re: “One Hot Potato

He might be full of crap, but can anyone explain why Asians are beating all other races in every way except athletics? It certainly is not their brutal societies giving them the advantage.

Re: “One Hot Potato

Commies are the opposition. They use other names now, but they are commies none the less. Interestingly the biggest commie opponents in America before Jimmy Carter capitulated and Reagan mopped up were Democrats and Republicans both. These people are commies, don't be fooled by cool new names.

I ask the police to be on hand in overwhelming force so this man may exercise free speech without fear of lawlessness and violence. The left is losing at every turn and using violence as an equalizer. Don't let that happen here please.

Re: “House Speaker Paul Ryan Met With Demonstration During Boise Visit

Please expand the story. Is this group associated with the leftist Antifa movement? Look deeper, it's a valid question.

Do they have access to schools? Are parents notified? Hate is hate whether it be right or left, so I really want to know more about this group and its leadership. Anyone standing on the street yelling at centrist congressional leaders should be carefully scrutinized for radical content before having contact with school kids.

Paul Ryan is Trumps biggest problem so not clear why shouting at him unless the intent was to get attention in the media.

Re: “One Hot Potato

So, where is the line on inviting and dis-inviting speakers? If Hillary "they are superpredators" Clinton was to speak the Riverside, would she be dis-invited? I doubt it. All the so-called minority loving liberals would flock to see her. I would not go to see Murray. I would not go to see Hillary. But those that want to go see either one of them or both of them should be able to. Although Hillary can always call up Crowds on Demand and hire an audience if she had to.

Re: “One Hot Potato

Murray's theses:
- Black people are less intelligent partly due to genetics
- White people make objectively more "excellent" art (also due to biology)
- These biological differences are partly to blame for the 1/10 wealth gap between races
- The effects of hundreds of years of slave ownership and economic disenfranchisement are negligible

GOP loves him because he gives intellectual cover to their racist belief that the wealth disparity between races is due primarily to capability and not generations of oppression and dehumanization.

Heard while walking by, "What am I supposed to say now?" BTW, it should be 'Dozen' of demonstrators.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is considered a terror organization by one of out Arab allies. You be the judge.

Re: “August 22, 2017: What to Know

In the most obvious baldfaced lie of the speech, Trump said the new plan came after I studied Afghanistan in great detail and from every conceivable angle, which translates to, "Im telling you what the generals have decided to do, and by Thursday Ill have forgotten two thirds of it."

Re: “Can Police Prevent the Next Charlottesville?

Racism is bad. Race baiting is worse. Political parties using it to sew division is the worst.

There are only a handful of political topics dividing the two parties. On the inside they are identical. Therefore something emotionally inflammatory is needed to make the parties look different on the outside. The topic chosen to be divisive for the next election is the old reliable race topic. Abortion is no longer a big divider. Islamaphobia crosses party lines too. Minimum wage makes inflation. Anti-war is not viable with a well paid voluntary military. Environment is not hot when we are driving 500hp cars and still clobbering the Arabs with cheap oil. Corruption in politics is so so very deep on both sides they can't go there. So after brief deliberations the topic of race has been raised up the flagpole again. Race is the gift that keeps on giving for political operatives. The vile aspects of our society of all races and genders make it and even stronger tool.

"Why do we continue to be fooled by these political worms" should be the headline.

Re: “UPDATED: More Idaho Politicians Weigh in on Charlottesville Violence

The Russian connection has played out with no results. Soros must now reheat the race war. Everyone with an average IQ or less grab a sign and act really upset that you live the best lives of any minorities anywhere on earth. It's just not fair that whites still live well too! America sucks.

Destroy America. Socialism Now!

PS: I do agree Trump is a wacko but his name is not Clinton, Bush, Obama, or Sanders, so I'll accept it.
