Why don't they, and more importantly Trump put a stake in the ground and say, QAnon, white supremacists, anti-semitism...f*ck off. Instead it's always this grey, playing dumb, shrug shoulders approach by them.

    And when we are on the outside looking in..we like...give me a break..why all the dilly dalling about this. Which tells me that they think the number of these folks matter in terms of votes. And this is the problem

    BTW...I'm know sane people like yourself think they cooky.....but these folks are there storming the capitol in Trump's name.

    I appreciate the effort but it was pretty vague. Who ate these guys, what do they stand for. Better yet where can i go look to see what they stand for.
    Trump even said he knows nothing of QAnon, so im not sure how that is secretly supporting them

    Not just a woman, but one "of color".

    One of the worst VP picks I have seen. IF it had to be a woman (why oh why), I would prefer Nikki Haley but not enough people will vote for her in the primaries.

    I think Haley is the odds favorite right now for the 24 GOP primary.

    Excellent article and pretty much spot on when you talk about GOP not making inroads into the urban areas and its just nothing more than stupididness on their side. There was a record breaking number of minorities from all diffrent backgrounds (Indian, black, asian and spanish) that ran for house seats so I believe the message is getting out but the ground game and most importantly the financial backing from the RNC was severely lacking. There were some wins tho so we getting some progress. Its just a shame the way Trump and the GOP are shaped as white nationalists mainly by media which is most peoples newssource.

    ddr-jr a serious question. How are black republicans perceived by the urban community? When I look at the whole group of minorities blacks by far vote more democrat when you're talking 90% than others and its not even close.

    Conspiracy theorists that look for hidden messages about what trump is doing behind the scenes to reveal all the corruption of DC and such I think. Called qanon because it's based on anonymous online posts by someone going by "q"

The GOP could lock up EVERY Southern Black vote if they were true Christians. Same with the Latino vote. Both those minorities are very religious. Of the GOP wanted to flip big cities ...use that. But ...it’s just not that important to them. The GOP is truly the “Old Rich White Man “ party.

    This is the thing y'all don't understand. Regardless of whether they care or not, ppl will gladly take healthcare and free money over watching their money go to wars that don't need to fought and corporate bailouts lol

    That said ....you do get my point. I mean with the exception of deep , inner city young blacks ...the Christian Right would be right at home in the black community. Same with Latinos. Family oriented, God fearing , hard working. Basic values of the Old GOP.

    Those values you mentioned fall perfectly in line with far left ideology. MLK was a socialist. Religion and far left ideology go hand in hand. Republicans constantly fail to see this.

It's a shame to have to admit it, but I think if the Republicans know what's good for them (?), they will open up their eyes and ears and think of running a woman on the ticket, even at the top. The reason I hate to admit to that, is that a person's skin color, gender, etc. shouldn't make a bit of difference, but we don't live in that world anymore, it seems.
    Those types of moves by the GOP will fall flat on its face like they always do, because everyone knows it's a bs facade. See Michael Steele....

    83% of his tax cuts went to top 1%. The rest was trash and didn't tangibly affect enough peoples lives.

    How many actual socialists are there around these days? Sanders is a rich man who pretends to be a socialist (if he was a socialist, he would be a poor man). The Squad are too busy being outraged/liberals. The DNC obeys their corporate masters.... Corporate masters want to fleece the sheepies.
    The number of socialists are growing daily. You'd be surprised.
