A quick search will reveal Kraichgauer has made several posts before referring to "inbred crackers", despite the, er, "irony" of this being pointed out to him.

It just goes to show that people like him have no principles - they just have narratives.


He's been hounded for years about his narrative but to no avail.


Only by you and a few of your bosom buddies. And the more you hound me, the louder I'll get! :twisted:

Yeah, the louder you wail about being bullied and set upon. Then there's that well used straw man of yours about "attacks" on your family. :roll:

I can guess who these "bosom buddies" are you but about all we have in common is penchant for calling you out and running you up a tree. You don't see us wooing each other like you and your bosom buddy after each post that one of you makes with all those compliments and thank yous and other gushy pleasantries, ad nauseam.

Almost ignored in the news that Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus would be becoming Donald Trump's chief of staff: That Steve Bannon, the man who proudly boasted of his Breitbart.com for anti-Semitism, white nationalism, misogyny and conspiracy theories.

Among Bannon's contributions to the media discourse: Declaring the Trump-opposing conservative Bill Kristol a "renegade Jew"; articles declaring that "birth control makes women unattractive and crazy"; advocating that women who receive online harassment should "log off"; support for public display of the confederate flag; multiple stories about "trannies" and "faggots". During divorce proceedings against him, Gannon's wife testified that he was aggressively anti-Semitic.

The site's Bannon-led embrace of white nationalism—not merely under the "alt-right" banner, but of notorious white supremacists themselves, is unambiguous.

Sounds like a very unattractive choice. However the President is free to pick anyone he wants for staff positions. Cabinet positions have to be approved by the Senate. That is because holders of cabinet posts in the line of succession to be President.

Yes, you have cast aspersions on my family, then you have retreated from it.
And if I'm up a tree, it's only be be able to p*ss on you from up there. :twisted:

In what way is Jeff Sessions a 'genuine white supremacist'?


Part 8648763478658 of the series "Everyone that disagrees with me is a racist"

:roll:


Jeff once said KKK was alright. He changed his mind when he found out they did drugs. There's numerous other things but I honestly think you would call it "mainstream lies" like you usually do. So why bother? You can easily find the information on the internet.

So I will say... Sessions is part of the series "Everyone that Trump picks is fine with Jacoby"


That, and he had once harassed a black man working for him, calling him boy repeatedly. Another time, he had described a white lawyer as a "race traitor."

I agree that Sessions is an absolutely dreadful choice. He seems to be a genuine white supremacist, although the controversies surrounding him seem to be quite old and there is a possibility he has mellowed with age.

I think your use of "inbred" is shameful, particularly in conjunction with "cracker". I don't think cracker is a racist term, but I think it can be a classist one. It seems like a fair description of Jeff Sessions. However, the use of "inbred" makes it a nasty attack from a coastal Democrat on a Southern Republican. Even if he is inbred and you're not just resorting to hateful stereotypes, what relevance does that have to whether he's a good person or a good appointment?


I promise I will try to be a good boy, and refrain from combining the words "inbred," and "cracker" together.
Incidentally, I don't think of my criticism of Sessions as being class oriented by any means, as he's very much an upper class guy. I'd rather imagine he's descended from the southern elites who had started the Civil War and session in order to keep their semi-feudalistic slave system alive, than a scion of the poor white southerners he himself has probably derided as white trash.

<--- Will back off his anti-Trump rhetoric once he sees minorities obtaining important positions in the POTUS' cabinet. (Notice how he said important as he expects minorities will be hired by Trump, but placed in inconsequential, unimportant, non-authoritative, "are y'all happy now?" positions.

I am sure Trump will hire someone of that nature soon enough but the primary consideration is who is the best person for the jump not to make sure every shade is represented. I think most Trump supporters anticipate Ben Carson being given a spot in the administration, Trump is considering Michelle Rhee for Secretary of Education who also a Democrat on top of everything else, Nikki Haley has been talked about as a possible Secretary of State. The implication of Trump being biased against these people I think couldn't be further from the truth, Trump will hire who the best person is for the job regardless of gender, race, or political party.

Forgive me, but I'll believe it when I see it.
And apparently, Ben Carson has said he doesn't want a position in the Trump administration. Maybe because he doesn't want to delouse every time he's in the same room with Bannon and Sessions.

My name's on Ellis Island; quite frankly I'm a little more concerned about all the swastika graffiti in the city. They'd do well to learn what that glyph actually means. FFS my cousin's at a Jewish uni in Brooklyn!

I'm Norsk and this is why four generations later I wear a big paperclip on my backpack.

And in keeping with the overwhelming odds, fire them all on blithe impulse.
