Public Policy Polling: 45 Percent of Trump Voters Think Whites Face the Most Racial Discrimination in U.S.

6 Comments and 9 Shares

Public Policy Polling:

The reason Trump hasn’t lost more ground for his widely panned response to the attack is probably that many of his supporters agree with some of the beliefs that led white supremacists to rally in Charlottesville in the first place. Asked what racial group they think faces the most discrimination in America, 45% of Trump voters say it’s white people followed by 17% for Native Americans with 16% picking African Americans, and 5% picking Latinos. Asked what religious group they think faces the most discrimination in America, 54% of Trump voters says it’s Christians followed by 22% for Muslims and 12% for Jews. There is a mindset among many Trump voters that it’s whites and Christians getting trampled on in America that makes it unlikely they would abandon Trump over his “both sides” rhetoric.

The idea that white Christians are the most discriminated against group in America is both bonkers and disgusting. And that’s how we wound up with a bonkers, disgusting president.

Overall 89% of Americans have a negative opinion of neo-Nazis to 3% with a positive one, and 87% have an unfavorable opinion of white supremacists to 4% with a positive one. Just 11% agree with the sentiment that it’s possible for white supremacists and neo-Nazis to be ‘very fine people,’ to 69% who say that’s not possible.

These numbers are much less depressing. But I’m really curious about the people in the middle, who have neither a positive nor negative opinion of Nazis. Who is neutral or undecided on Nazism and white supremacy?

Maybe they misunderstood the verb "face" and read it as "the face of"?

Yes, though probably only because the question was their opinion of neo-nazis. If the question was regarding views commonly held by neo-nazis the result would, sadly, probably be different.

Like how people will hold racist opinions but take great offense if called a racist.

How Adam West played a prank using his local phone book

1 Comment and 15 Shares

A few years back, I was in Sun Valley, Idaho for a conference. I learned Adam West lived in the area and I wondered if he was listed in the local phone book. So, I pulled it out of the nightstand in my hotel room and checked.

Flipping to the the "W" page, I spotted his name. His listing prompted, “See Wayne Bruce (Millionaire)." Ha, game on!

Naturally I flipped to “Wayne Bruce (Millionaire)," which brought me to "Please consult Crime Fighters in the Yellow Pages." 

Ok, that brought me to "See BATMAN - WHITE PAGES"..

Which then circles back to "See West Adam"!

   

Nicely played, Mr. West, nicely played. RIP.

The Fidget Spinner Butt Plug!

A true artist and genius has shut up all of the tricks who say that fidget spinners are useless by making it beyond useful! If you play with a fidget spinner a lot and an annoyed friend has told you to shove it up your ass, now you can with ease!

The Etsy fuck toy shop, GlowFYourself (via Refinery29), is selling a fidget spinner butt plug, which sadly, they didn’t call the “fudget spinner butt plug.” It will cost you $35 to $55, depending on what size your ass needs. That’s a small price to pay for something that’ll make your brown sugar walls quiver as you de-stress. GlowFYourself puts it like this:

Here to help keep that A$$ focused, we present to you our custom made fidget spinner butt plugs!

Imagine the look on coworkers faces as they watch your stress levels bottom out, this toy could be the thing that keeps you cool and collected, any time your stressed, just sit and spin!

GlowFYourself doesn’t have a video of how their fidget spinner butt plug works and they call it a “novelty item,” so I have no idea if it can actually spin while up your b-hole. But if it can, then it’s a must-have for power bottoms whose piece is always stressed out. Just throw your ass up in the air, slide the fidget spinner butt plug in and let your piece spin their way to relaxation. It’s going to bring couples together!

GlowFYourself also has other masterpiece butt plugs, like the JC and rosary one, which is great for someone who wants to save their soul through their hole. And yes, I just picked up a chancleta and slapped myself with it so the ghost of my Catholic abuelita wouldn’t have to.
