NYT’s Racist Nutpicking

The practice of sifting through the comments of blogs, email threads, discussion groups and other user generated content in an attempt find choice quotes proving that the advocates for or against a particular political opinion are unreasonable, uninformed extremists.

It doesn’t just happen online.

The New York Times:

Voices From Donald Trump’s Rallies, Uncensored

“Kill her.”

“Trump that bitch!”

“Build a wall — kill them all.”

New York Times reporters have spent over a year covering Donald J. Trump’s rallies, witnessing so many provocations and heated confrontations at them that the cumulative effect can be numbing: A sharp sting that quickly dulls from repetition.

But what struck us was the frequency with which some Trump supporters use coarse, vitriolic, even violent language — in the epithets they shout and chant, the signs they carry, the T-shirts they wear — a pattern not seen in connection with any other recent political candidate, in any party.

Not everyone attending a Trump rally behaves this way. In fact, many are polite and well mannered. But while protesters are often shouted down, crowds seldom express disapproval of the crude slogans and angry outbursts by Mr. Trump’s supporters. Indeed, these displays have become inextricably bound with the Trump show itself — as much as the snaking entrance lines and the calls to “build a wall” along the border with Mexico.

With that in mind, we set out to record the shouts, slogans, imprecations and interactions among audience members that set Trump events apart from other political gatherings. We also obtained recordings from others in attendance, who sometimes were closer to the action.

So you go to a Trump rally. You stand in line for hours. You spend the time chatting with some of the thousands of other Trump supporters who also showed up. Most of them are nice, well-behaved middle-class Americans. Most of them are white, but there are lots of people of color there too, and nobody is treating them any different.

The only trouble-makers you see are the anti-Trump protestors outside the arena. They are chanting “Fuck Trump” and other, similar phrases. A few protestors inside the arena are escorted out as the crowd boos.

After the rally you go home and watch the news. The story you watch about the rally you attended looks nothing like what you saw with your own eyes. Most of the coverage focuses on a couple anonymous assholes that the media picked out of the crowd.

None of the anti-Trump protestors are shown. Neither are any of the nice people you talked to. Just those anonymous assholes.

Drum’s Law:

If the best evidence of wackjobism you can find is a few anonymous nutballs commenting on a blog, then the particular brand of wackjobism you’re complaining about must not be very widespread after all.

    NYT. The fish wrap of record.

    Anti-war marches would attract 1/2 million, but the media always found BushHitler and Fuck Bush signs. The rest of us were pretty average just wanting peace and love in the world 😉

    I follow David Martosko because he seems fair to me. Doesn’t advocate for either side. Last night when this NYT article came out, he calmly pointed out that majority of the media do not even attend the events, much less talk to those Americans who are in the crowd. He also points out that you will find a small percentage of these type people in BOTH campaigns, but they do not by any means represent the majority. You can look at his timeline from last night.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Good article on the 1st Amendment by a law professor who specializes in it and using Lenny Bruce as an example of what killed him. I remember seeing the movie “Lenny” (Dustin Hoffman was brilliant as always) and walking out of the theater numbed by it. Seems like what they are doing to Trump now. “Shut up and go away”. :shudder:


    • taw46 says:

      Is it real? I would not be that calm with bears swimming that close to me, lol. Cute, though.

      • lyn says:

        When I was little in Montana, we went on a camping trip and a bear sat on a stump and watched my mother cook pancakes. The bear got off the stump, and we all ran into the car; the bear eventually left.

        • taw46 says:

          Love that story! When I was little, we would visit the Smoky Mountains. We did not camp there, but I do remember seeing bears alongside the road, people stopping to take photos.

    Oh noes, we can’t have anyone point out facts! You’re smearing Mr. Khan by stating facts!

    Now going after Melania’s immigration status. Twitter so happy.

    • taw46 says:

      NYT does a “travel” piece about Ljubljana, with snarky remarks about Melania throughout the article. WaPo has an article questioning whether Melania came here legally. Coordinated, indeed.

    • Somebody says:

      His wife, his business acumen and the size of his hands are all triggers. Team Clinton is trying their level best to set Trump off, they really, really, really need him to go off because their entire plan right now is to cut his legs off early with all these claims he has mental problems. They are going to try anything they can to set him off during August.

      I hope Trump lets surrogates do the counter punching, he really needs to. He needs to focus and stick to the issues right now the Iran thing is a nice big club to beat Hillary with and she’s doubled down on it. Otherwise, economy……immigration….trade, trade, trade and jobs, jobs, jobs……safety…….they all tie together SOCO……single overriding communication objective.

    Video poker is a bad bad thing.
    I sat down at 1pm left at 2am. I came out with 20 more than I went in with.
    Anywho Trump was often the subject and complete disgust with the media. Every single person expressed an affection for The Donald. It wasn’t just I hate that cupid stunt there seemed to be a genuine affinity towards him. The attacks have forged an allegiance.
    I have felt the urge to refer to the hildebeast as the C word. I refrain because it really upsets some women. Mystifies me that a few letters can cause such feigned anguish
    Anyhow bourbon swilling bad ass black woman let loose about hrc. Condescending was her take. She was well dressed and other than her pejorative terms for hillary was very articulate.
    To a person everyone kept saying why are hills and o not held responsible for creating ISIS.
    I have been wondering how those outside of blogosphere are reacting. These were random people of shades and economies in western PA not political junkies nor white trash expressing what I read here.

    • taw46 says:

      I often stop and ask myself that same question. Probably only a small percentage of voters read blogs or Twitter (only a couple of people that I know do). Yet they somehow know what is at stake, what are lies and what is truth, and continue to show up at Trump’s events in huge numbers.

  19. jennifer lyn says:

    its getting bad out there. hopefully silent majority will IGNORE news and vote. May we follow in England’s proud anti-EU stance and vote with our hearts and brains.

      Dear Dan
      When you have been used as the sacrificial cow for a network so that no one digs deeper into their misinformation, payola and incestuous ties, you should be able to figure out that certain people are not, never were and never will be your friends. They gave you the shaft. You just keep playing their game. You are lucky in that you are set for life so you can go fishing and enjoy what time you have left on earth. Why do you keep wading back into the muck?

  22. mothy67 says:

    I bought a pack of smokes yesterday– 10.11 a pack. That is insane. I roll my own, but I was gambling . Poorer people smoke as a rule. That’s 300/month off the dinner table. Where do those taxes go. Also the lottery is supposed to help seniors. My parents are old they get nada. Me da has medicare and the best plan highmark offers and he still spends a ton on meds. Who does it help. Only the indigent poor?
    I saw yesterday the UN wants to tax meat until it is unaffordable. Try cooking on a budget without meat. I will go gangsta for bacon.
    I owned a bar(never again) and on top of PAs already high liquor tax the county added 7% to all drinks to save the buses. Not one bus ran anywhere in the borough. I want to see where that money goes. Every year like clock work they try and pass a sugar tax. You pay a charge every month on your cell phone bill for the obama phone. Mine is like 9 dollars/month. That is 108 a year. Comcast is offering 9.99 internet to families that get free school lunches and a computer for 150. Don’t kid yourself its still a tax as you pay in higher bill. Obummer wanted to tax 529 accounts. Fuck him.
    Tax tax tax tax for what? Sell your home a new tax to cover other peoples health insurance
    I sense more people are seeing what the TEA party was saying. They had to be squashed. What would happen if middle America added it all up?

    • blowme0bama says:

      You finally took my repeated advice to you about rolling your own with the machine. Cigs are about .90 / pack. Most of the difference between .90 / pack and whatever it is you pay at retail, is tax.

      • mothy67 says:

        Thankyou it been almost a year.I smoke less and last night I bought Marlboro Lights and I could taste the chemicals. I wish I could quit. I can’t. Tried it allthey are adding a new loose tobacco tax in PA next month. Fuckers.

        • blowme0bama says:

          Yeah, I knew it was only a matter of time before they came for the lose tabacco. No mention of it down here yet and the state legislature is GOP dominated so maybe it won’t happen for a good while.

        • blowme0bama says:

          Yeah, you get used to smoke the home rolled pretty quick, like within maybe half a pack. Commercial cigs taste strange after that.

          Here it is again:


          • blowme0bama says:

            I considered that, but there are a lot of variants of tobacco and I wouldn’t have any idea what type of seed to buy. I am told my great grandfather grew his own and dried it in a shed with some of the boards missing, then rolled the leaves up and would cut off a plug to put in his pipe.

            Anyway, that would be the second most economical fix, but it’s more effort and research than I want to put into it. If the loose tobacco begins to be taxed like the cigarettes, the most economical solution may be necessary: quit.

    • blowme0bama says:

      I don’t even count sales taxes and all these usage fees on internet & phone. When you add up your Fed & State income, plus local property taxes, I’m paying around ~45% of my income in GD taxes. If I threw all the sales & “special” fees, it wouldn’t surprise me if ~50% of my annual income goes to the government.

      • mothy67 says:

        For what? To stand in line behind someone buying doritos and soda with food stamps. I got a call from school about my turd not eating school lunches. I somehow impact the nutrition of kids that get breakfast, lunch and after school snack for free. Pup is a vegetarian and has been for years. Idiots. Would cost them more to cater to her. I guess that doesn’t matter they just need figures to show to the feds. A few years back against the home owners wishes my town began accepting section 8. There has been a yuuuge decline in scores. Poverty does not equal stupid. Its not race most are white it is indifference to your child or assuming its the schools job to raise them. Appalling at best.

  23. Somebody says:

    Ho Lee Phuck……..Oh my, we just had a tornado! I told you the storm was bad. Luckily I was checking the weather on my phone at the moment the tornado warning was issued. I had to get my 3 grandkids, my daughter and dog to a “safe space”. Luckily we generally don’t have strong tornadoes here because we also don’t have storm shelters or basements, hell I don’t even really have a good interior room to go to.

    Oh my God I’m exhausted, I was already tired from lack of sleep. The two youngest were taking naps at opposite ends of the house. As I went to get the youngest one at the back of the house the middle one freaked out and ran through the house so I had to chase her down. Then we’re huddled in my office, internet and power goes and I can’t fucking blow up the radar image on my phone to see how close this thing is and then I lost cell service and I thought we were screwed for sure, but we’re fine. The tornado touched down about a half mile as the crow flies from my house, maybe a little less. There are overturned semis and wrecked cars out there on the highway, but as far as I know no other reported damage…….power is back on, and internet!!

    I tell you I’ve had too much day!!

    • votermom says:

      Wow. First a Trumpnado and then a tornado!
      I’m so glad you’re safe!

    • Dora says:

      OMG what a frightening experience! I’m nervous reading your words. I can’t imagine living through it. I’m glad there is no damage to your property.

      Try to relax. Have a drink. Stay safe.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Did you hear a “train” ? My close call was hearing a train, then thinking, wait, we’re nowhere near train tracks, then it was gone. Glad you’re safe! No basements here either, I’m thinking jumping into my husband’s silverado parked in the garage may be our safe space.

    • mothy67 says:

      No basement is so wierd to me. Where do you hide the bodies? Seriously I have a basement and an attic and I still have no room. My brothers store stuff that they never retrieve. My bro Ste has a 16 year old daughter, Lex, they put all the baby shit inbasement as they had an apt. Planned on more, but her womb hung out a no vacancy sign. She was sad and Steve didn’t want to throw or give away the stuff. 16 years later still there. Nice stuff but sure someone could use it. I might convert the changing table into a bar.

    • Somebody says:

      This isn’t over, apparently the tornado started in the back of my neighborhood and then jumped into my son’s neighborhood. Believe it or not my daughter in NC is getting better information via twitter than I’m getting here on the ground.

      ****According to twitter there are approximately 40 homes, maybe more in my son’s neighborhood with damage some significant**** We’re searching now to see if we can find any images of his house.

      Speaking of my son, he and my husband aren’t going to be able to get through to get home for a while, delayed an hour or more. My son is coming from JAX so he can take a different route via the north end of Amelia Island. My husband can go that route but talk about going around your thumbs to get to your butt.

      It sounds like the fall of Saigon outside my house right now with all the helicopters. Life flight??? News choppers??? Military??? Sheriff??? I don’t know they are on the other side of the trees, but man there are quite a few it’s eery sounding.

      Too much day for me and I have to cook for everybody yet……take out doesn’t seem to be an option. My son and family were already planning on spending the night tonight due to his A/C being on the fritz overnight, now this…….and my older daughter is coming home for a 10 day visit tomorrow……YIKES! Suddenly 2,900 square feet seems really small.

      • taw46 says:

        Sorry you are having to go through this, but thankfully the family is safe. Hopefully your son’s home will be ok. What a 24 hrs for you!

        Florida has some crazy weather. When I lived in Brevard county, we had several tornadoes over the years. Some with damage. I had a couple go over and above my vehicle. Scary times indeed. Wishing the best for everyone.

        • Somebody says:

          Pictures starting to trickle in of downed trees and debris on my son’s street. I haven’t seen his house yet in any of the pictures, fingers crossed. You have to go down a canopied road to get to his neighborhood they are trying to clear a path back there, some people are either already there and tweeting out a few pictures or they’ve walked back there. It’s a fairly big neighborhood, 40 homes is probably 10-20% so I’m hoping the odds are in his favor.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        First hugs. They are scary. Come on with little or no warning. Hang tight and let them access the damage first. You can have one house leveled and another with minor damage to another in close proximity.

        My first tornado experiences was at my grandmothers(see your grandkids should never forget your reassuring presence) and you actually could hear the trains in the distance so it was a close call for everyone to realize – not that kind of train – then our little cities tornado warning system went off and that sound is scary in and of itself but it gets people moving.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          assess not access. Or should I say assess before trying to access. I actually cannot blame wordpress. A local clinic asked for technical assistance on a grant and I have been working through the required data elements and access is the word of the day.

      • lateblum says:

        OMG Somebody! I’m so glad to hear you’re safe. I hope everyone else is as well. I’ve lived through 2 tornadoes. They’re no fun. And they do sound like trains. Just let us know how everyone is doing. Hugs and 💕💕

      A Rush caller was at the Jax rally last night and Rush quizzed him hard about not having a good time, lol, trying to find fault in Trump and his supporters, was the speech too long?, was it boring?….he just couldn’t break the guy into agreeing with current headlines about Trump being “finished”, “insane” and other DNC talking points.

    My parents be da bomb. I don’t think they have any idea how to spend money on themselves. I did not lose 500 last night so I stumbled in at 230 and left them 500 with a note telling icky I believe in her. Child wants for nothing. My mudroom is a shoe closet. Book shelves of shoes. She has 600 purse. Who sends a9 year old Chanel? I own the house but I still live in the garage. I thought they could have fun. What did they do? Went and bought dipstick a bike and then took her to a park. I go out out once a month I budget 500. I never spend that much but I’d rather stay home than watch my pennies. My mind money had been spent so I gave it to them. Oddly all of my siblings make decent money. 6 figures. When I graduated from high school my mom also graduated from nursing school. I did my financial aid forms. My dad made 21,000 that year with 5 kids. I always knew we were broke but I never felt I was poor. I set pins, delivered newspapers, washed dishes, cleaned offices, worked bingo. Committed major fraud at 12. The Catholic school had a newspaper drive. We had this yuuuge(I love that is now a word) room with the Sunday Paper. My brother and I took all the coupons and sold them to grocery stores. This was before scanners. We got a nickel for every 25 cents. It was serious cash. Shameless. We were never poor. My brat got one fucked up life who gets raised by a great gay uncle and great grandparents that fight tooth and nail to protect you. She is not a pathetic slob crying poor poor pitiful me. She is strong, kind, smart, athletic. She is so fit. I am so thankful for ballet. She started at 3. I did not do that dance mom shit. Her teach was strict but not maniacal. Its like meditation. Also yuuuuge fan of Tae Kwon Do. Pup is red belt. There are 9 girls in her homeroom. Six are now taking classes. One girl that is very big was sent to problem county school came back went back came back. She actually threatened to stab another kid. Social workers mean well but children at 9 are so fluid unless they have an over used chemical imbalance diagnosis. Unknown to me her dad ate a bullet in the room next to her. She has been shuffled around. Duh she is angry. Talk therapy in my opinion can be good but we got her in Tae Kwon Do. Her grandparents are raising her. She stole Shays phone last year. It was on tape. My snot is awake and alive. I told her the theft was a symptom. You are doted on non stop. My dad rides his scooter with an oxygen tank to coach her softball team. One of us goes swimming everyday with her. This girl is left to her own devices. You are wealthy share. She sleeps over once a week. I have no idea why I bother to deflate the air mattress/pirate ship/ island because there is always a sleep over. I had to make 7 milkshakes to purchase a pretend shark proof outfit so I can navigate my floor.
    All the girls go to the pool with us. Most days its all day. They all eat a pretzel with cheese and a can of pepsi. 2.50. Shay has her own money. I give her an allowance of 50/week to get away from me. Seriously adore her but go away. Some parents send their kids off for an entire day with no money. 2.50!!!! I am babysitting what would that cost
    I could not imagine thinking my imp was anyone elses responsibility. My parents did a vacation in Western PA took along her best friend. They did Old Bedford Village, Falling Water, Flight 92 Memorial, Hershey. Her mom has four kids, but still gave her daughter 300. She spent 80 on gifts for siblings and parents. Her mom tried to give me the balance. No. Vacation is important and phlegm needed to share it with someone. This woman’s child is so well behaved. I do not care about pretzel with cheese but please put down your iPhone and tell me you do not have 2.50 to leave your kid alone all day.

    Ha ha! Trump forced Obama to throw together a Potekim press conference to deny the $400 million ransom to Iran was a ransom.
    And people are falling for the media’s gaslighting that Trump is “imploding.” Ask yourself this:
    1. If Trump, whom they all in the establishment, left & right, is imploding, why are they all panicking hysterically? and
    2. America’s trust is the media is at a historic LOW — who do you think is actually falling for the media’s narrative?

      From Oregon’s rag:


      It’s only Wednesday and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has already had a no good, very bad week.

      His ongoing feud with the family of an Iraq war veteran who was killed in combat has drawn condemnation from nearly all corners. His refusal to endorse prominent members of his own party — Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Arizona Sen. John McCain — in their primary races has gathered ire from many in his own party.

      On Tuesday, he kicked a crying baby out of a rally.

      On Wednesday, ABC News reported that top Republican operatives were looking at ways to deal with an unprecedented scenario: What would the party do if their nominee dropped out of the race?

      • Venus says:

        Yeah, because the guy with $74 million cash on hand & huge crowds (remember all the way back to 2008 when huge crowds and raising big $ from small donors meant enthusiasm & inevitable win?) — and who is on ALL 50 ballots is going to drop out.

    How do you that are parents respond to your own jealousy. My youngest brother and his wife are going all out on archery with turd. I feel so envious. Like I do all this shit and I know it sounds small but it was all me. She was untouched. Beyond neglected. No one else stepped up. I got her out of poor rut. She took acting and voice classes at CLO, piano, flute, sax, tae kwon do, archery. No one else would have thought to nurture in that way. I created access for this child. She is not a sad stat. My brother is going to extreme with archery. I went the best for her but I she is going to think Danny provided her with that venue. The full scholarships for female archers are endless. I always have my eye on the prize. Its my job. I provide her with all I can.
    I was walking dogs with her at an animal shelter. Trust me I am a whore. The shelter I go to is sponsored by whose who. Pup got to go to local TV station and sit in an anchors chair. She was a piece of scrap. My other brother Ste has a junior in hs. I kept telling him she needs volunteer work for years. She is AP student and has to do some generic stuff to be in honor society. Years I said its a yuuuge plus. I was saying it when yuuuge was spelled huge. I have been milking everyone I know at dog pound for years. Ya think I like picking up shit. Gonna give my baby every advantage I can. So Ste took over my walking with his daughter. I am jealous because I think baby girl will not know its me. I want the best for her, but I do feel sads. She is going to think Dan did archery, Ste dog pound, Jim museum guy(i have the membership)

      • Venus says:

        Of course they are — it wasn’t easy for Trump to win the primary & it isn’t going to be easy for him to win the presidency. But the man came into this race with a plan — and that plan was to win. We were guaranteed he’d never be the nominee — he beat 16 others, including the male Hillary Jeb! with his $120 million. And he’s going to beat Hillary too. But the NeverTrumps acting like he was going to win it *today* and it’s all over because he’s behind in the polls — the same ones who said, btw, who guaranteed that if Trump was the nominee Hillary would win in a 50 state landslide — are as full of shit now as they were then.

    The damage stopped two doors down from him on his side of the street, it stopped directly across from his house on the other side of the street. The only damage he had was the loss of a couple of shingles and he lost the top out of a large live oak in his front yard. We’re not sure where the tree top ended up. His A/C is working fine too after crapping out last night, he cleaned his condensate line so I guess that was the only issue!! The grandkids ended up spending the night anyway because they were too excited about spending the night here, LOL! So my son dodged a bullet with the tornado, lucked out with his A/C AND got the night off…….he should buy a lottery ticket!

    I’m so proud of our community and emergency personnel. They worked quickly to get the roads cleared and also began immediately going door to door checking on people. Once the roads were cleared they got crews in to get trees and debris off of houses. The red cross was in the area almost immediately too.

    I’ve had a very long day…….I’m hoping tomorrow is better, gotta be it’s Friday!!!!

    Now for an on topic comment to the post based on my observations from last night’s rally.

    Did I see offensive shirts? Offensive people? Well I saw a lot of Hillary for Prison shirts, some may consider that offensive. I did see one shirt a guy had on with an outline of the US and inside the outline it said “All Full”, underneath the outline it said “Fuck off and go away”.

    Outside the venue as we were leaving a guy was selling tee shirts with a cartoonish picture of Hillary and beside that image it said “Hillary sucks” and beneath that a cartoonish picture of Monica Lewinsky and beside that it said “But not like Monica”. Then the back of the tee shirt said
    “Trump that Bitch”. I didn’t see anybody buy one of his shirts, but I did see them for sale. Also, as I stated last night there was on person selling Trump merchandise that was also selling confederate flags.

    So those would be the only things I saw that one might consider offensive depending on how delicate of a flower they are. As for offensive people, the crowd chants “Lock her up” a lot. I didn’t observe anyone being rude to people, not even to the protesters inside. Everyone seemed like nice average Americans.

    I did see very rude and hostile people outside, they were protesters. They were yelling obscenities at the Trump supporters as we walked by, but there weren’t many of them and they weren’t intimidating, at least not to me…….they were SERIOUSLY outnumbered, thousands of Trump supporters for every protester. I did see some of the Trump supporters yelling back, and waving signs and banners fairly close to the protesters faces. In fact one woman walked right up to a small group of BLM protesters and waved a big Trump banner around shouting “Trump, Trump, Trump”. This was their response to her “Fuck you, you fucking racist cunt, go fuck yourself you racist fucking bitch” There were bicycle cops right there and they moved in, I don’t know what happened as we were walking away from that area as it happened, but I didn’t see anything on the news about a fight so I presume it all ended OK.

    Oh and I forgot to mention I saw lots of offensive shirts on protesters that said stuff like “Trump suck donkey dicks”. Shirts that called all of his supporters racist or Nazis, that kind of stuff. In fact my husband said it like this……We went to a Trump rally and we found a lot of racism and hate, but it wasn’t the Trump supporters it was the protesters.

    Must be a quiet night at the hospital, the wife sent me this video and I immediately thought the Merced marsupial lover.

    While these fine chaps were arrested, and have yet to go to trial, they are examples of the type of convicted drug & gun felons that Obama has released and pardoned.
    Take a peek.
