Trump says State of the Union address to stress 'unity'

Washington • President Donald Trump said Thursday that “unity” will be the theme of his first State of the Union address under divided government and that he respects Stacey Abrams, who will give the Democratic response.

“I hope she does a good job. I respect her,” Trump said of Abrams, who will be the first black woman to deliver the rebuttal.

Trump will give his speech Tuesday before a joint session of Congress at a sensitive time in talks over keeping the government open and funding the border wall he is demanding as part of any deal. Members of Congress are inviting federal workers worried about another shutdown after Feb. 15. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling also hovers.

Yes, it's pretty much impossible to think of the word "unity" without also thinking "Donald Trump"...

It appears Garry Trudeau is getting back to basics.

Alabama newspaper calls for resurgence of KKK

MONTGOMERY, Alabama --
A small-town newspaper has called for a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan, prompting two universities to withdraw the awards it had given its editor.

Auburn University and the University of Southern Mississippi decided Tuesday to rescind previous honors for Goodloe Sutton, editor and publisher of The Democrat-Reporter of Linden, Alabama.

An editorial published last week began: "Time for the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again." The editorial says Democrats and "Democrats in the Republican Party" are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama, so the Klan should raid "gated communities" where they live.

Sutton told the Montgomery Advertiser he stands by his Feb. 14 editorial. During an interview, Sutton suggested lynchings as a way to clean up Washington. Sutton also questioned whether the KKK is violent, claiming America's most feared white supremacist terrorist organization "didn't kill but a few people."

The Alabama Press Association Board said in a brief statement that its board of directors voted Tuesday to censure Sutton and suspend The Democrat-Reporter's membership.

Weeks earlier, the newspaper complained that CBS News historically has "slandered the South" by providing too much coverage when whites kill blacks in the region.

I'm sure we can expect crickets about this from The Racist-In-Chief...

The supreme cause of worry here is that this kind of thing - e.g., this 'newspaper' and the Coast Guard wannabe terrorist - is being exposed due only to their extreme stupidity. The CG guy was found because he googled things like "best place in dc to see congress people" at the office while stockpiling weapons. (Thanks LJ for that other thread.) The 'newspaper' publishes this as an editorial. It used to be that racists and homophobes (etc) were smarter than that and hid their machinations. (There's a reason for those white cone hats and the coveralls. They didn't want us to know who they were because they had respectable jobs as barbers and bankers and barkeeps.) I suspect that many of them still are not total idiots, which means that most of that iceberg is still below the surface. It also means that it's a very big fucking berg. Maybe Trump is just there as the big shiny object which is put there to distract our attention in which case he's doing one hell of a job.
