A day after the Senate easily passed legislation condemning last month's violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, the House passed it on a voice vote Tuesday evening.

 

Though resolutions are often passed to offer the sense of the House or Senate on various issues, they rarely head to the president for consideration. But backers of this measure structured it as a "joint resolution," a move ensuring that passage would require Trump to weigh in on an issue that has dogged his presidency for weeks.

The resolution urges Trump to "speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy. It also calls on the administration to "use all resources available to the President and the President’s Cabinet to address the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States."

 

As of now the White House has no plans to sign it.

 

 

Shocker. Why would Trump want to alienate his base?

The thing about being a big blubbering racist pussy, is that even though he's all about big talk and big "actions," he's too much of a chickenshit to ever admit that he supports these groups and their ideals. He's too cowardly to admit that he's racist. But too stupid to denounce it, thus completely admitting to it. I just don't get why he even bothers denying it.

That reminds me of when now perma'd mikee made that racist comment to @skillzdadirecta or @outsida and then pretended that he didn't know telling him to go back to eating chicken was a racist comment. And then @CitizenVectron called mikee out and said, "We didn't say the chicken part was racist, so you obviously knew you were making a racist comment."

 

Another chickenshit, but a perma'd chickenshit.

He said that shit to @outsida and when I called him out on it, he played the "I'm a European white guy from London and I didn't know there were racial connotations about food! Why are you so sensitive about food?" card. So I called him a coward and a pussy. Most racists these days either play dumb or they try to flip it and call YOU racist or feign offense when you call them out on their bullshit... which I tend to do. Mind you, I am not an overly sensitive guy and I am not prone to playing the race card at the drop of a hat. But I will either remove myself from the conversation when some of that shit rears it's head, or I'll call you out on it. His shit was so blatant that I HAD to call him out and his response showed me exactly what type of coward he was.

Because it works. We live in a time and era now where calling a racist a racist is almost as bad as hurling epithets against minorities (Thanks Fox News) Trump supporters (even ones of color) can see his half-hearted denunciations and tell themselves "See! He's not racist!" Meanwhile White Supremacists across the country are receiving his not so subtle messages loud and clear.

I remember that so fondly. Good times. The only disappointment was mikee not owning his racism like a man. A lot of conservatives like to rail against "PC culture" yet use coded language to escape the attention of the uninitiated.

Trump will sign it, but only after a suggestive tussel in the media that speaks volumes to his base.

 

It is the new equilibrium he has found on dog whistling.

 

The no comment has already begun that process. Just imagine if this were a resolution on condemning jihadists and Obama's first signal on the matter was that he might or might not sign it.

EXACTLY...  I call that cowardly shit out when I see it because oftentimes folks won't say anything.

Yeah that doesn't fly with me either. My friends and I don't joke like that.

 

I say that fucking nobody jokes like that.  It's like dropping an anal sex "joke" on a third date.  YOU KNOW what you're doing, quit trying to play it off.

What are you talking about, it's cool to call everyone a racist these days. The second someone doesn't express unwavering support for complete open borders label them a racist and a white supremacist, imply obvious moral superiority and win at the internet.

Considering we're talking about a straight-up racist, you might want to pick your battles a bit better next time.

The winning strategy is to be unafraid of turning girls off.  Like, be yourself but to the extreme.  Then never stop looking or trying to make contact.
