"Your Silence and Amnesia Is Complicity': Booker Blasts Nielsen for "Shithole" Memory Failure

Jon Queally, staff writer

"When the commander in chief speaks or refuses to speak, those words don't just dissipate like mist in the air. They fester. They become poison. They give license to bigotry and hate in our country."

Evil comes in many forms.

Her short-term “gain” (money, position, influence) will be paid for with long-term pain. She might not be bright enough to understand that.

It’s beginning to look more & more like Germany 1933, and I thought it couldn’t get worse that “W”. Only in America.


#5

My but she has blonde hair and blue eyes…


#6

Like the President who would be dictator, or the Senator who would be President.

Oh good, Cory Booker showed up and got angry. And he did it in such a nice way without bringing up annoying issues of substance like health care or the minimum wage. We can all rest easy knowing this corporate democrat has our back.

You stole my thunder, damn it :slight_smile: and thank you :slight_smile:

I would like to add the poor man ripped from his family after being here for 30 years and sent back to Mexico and so many other examples it hurts.

Racism must not be normalized.


#10

At long last, a Democrat names the obvious behavior: “Complicity.”


#11

Rage is all the ‘rage’ this week in political circles. It will remain as vacuous as all the other talk these days. Real substance, that which helps Americans directly, will remain elusive as ever. As this ‘shithole’ nation heads toward the abyss of oblivion, we will continue to suffer at the hands of the ruling class and their sycophantic government stooges led by the king of stooges, Mr Trump and his court of corporate vampires.


#12

Absolutely agree. We continue to react to the symptoms, rather than the disease.


#13

And a Norwegian first and last name, naturally.

Wouldn’t those things be a bit off the topic of this hearing?

Excellent article Trump must be prevented from persisting with the Nazi dictum (Goebbels’ speech Nov. 27, 1925) …we can see the … If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself. With trump it could be if he lies often enough soon even the complicit Republicans will never believe him even when perchance he says something that is true


#16

Many times recently, even Bill Maher has said W wasn’t so bad, after all…


#17

To Norwegians, and Norway, the U.S. is a shithole country.


#18

Exactly. Any Norwegian who would want to even visit the USA is not someone normal Norwegians probably care much about.

A slippery slimy little thing isn’t she? Why is everyone surprised and in denial? She could be right out of the Fox stablesThis is a Steve Miller script, has been from the start. Listen to Fox’s Judge Jeanine Pirro. Replay the Trump rallies. We have elected a fascist, and because of the flaw in our election system we have taken a wrecking ball to any democracy, we had left. Traded for a few pieces of silver and the buggers stole that as well. Crumbs from the master’s table? Hell, we didn’t even get that.
