    His head my be just about to explode. While I might endorse or lean towards a certain Democrat in primaries, I genuinely try to avoid attacking other Dem candidates. But Christian has been showing his ass even more that he has in the past (that's saying a lot, frankly). Like this:

    How (in the name of all that's holy) can you talk about diversity in one breath, and then call your opponent a "Nancy Boy" in the next? Defies reason and logic.

    Charles Davenport Jr. column should be titled "Idiot extols the virtues of propagandist.":

    D’Souza spent the majority of his time at UNCG debunking “the big lie” perpetrated by the political left: that modern conservatives are racists, fascists and Nazis. (Not coincidentally, the title of his latest book is “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.”). Most of his arguments targeted “Antifa,” prominent Democrats and the mainstream press — specifically, the three major broadcast networks, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, The Washington Post and The New York Times.

    Unlike Trump and the Republican Party, Democrats have much in common with Nazis and fascists: “The Nazi Nuremberg Laws,” D’Souza writes, “were directly modeled on the segregation and anti-miscegenation laws that had been implemented decades earlier in the Democratic South.” The Democrats’ forced sterilization and euthanasia laws also inspired the Nazi Party. These embarrassing links are well-documented in “The Big Lie.”

    “In America,” D’Souza writes, “it was the Democratic Party that was the party of slavery, segregation, racism and the Ku Klux Klan. It remains the party of racial identity politics to this day, while the Republicans were founded as an anti-slavery party, continue to favor a color-blind society, and are tolerant in a polite, respectful, old-fashioned American way that politically correct speech-banning progressives cannot stand.”

    It was interesting to watch the spectators at D’Souza’s speech. Seated in front of me were several young people who were visibly moved. Their reactions included wide-eyed astonishment, head-shaking disbelief and, finally, nods of agreement. These were apparently facts and opinions they had never heard. At the conclusion of D’Souza’s remarks, they joined the throng in a standing ovation.

    Free speech on campus. Imagine that!

    I am so tired of this "Democrats are the party of the KKK!" meme I can barely move my fingers. And that "Republicans are colorblind" thing is just...It's so absurd I don't know what it is. But frankly, Davenport can spew all the nonsense he wants, it won't change the fact Democrats now hold *all* the City Council seats in Greensboro, and most of them are women.

    I loathe Trump and his supporters and those who are mindlessly derelict in their duty as citizens and decent human beings to vote their conscience rather than their ideology. Or, perhaps they have no conscience.

    If Trump does much more of his version of "draining the swamp," we'll have to declare everything inside the beltline as a zoned and protected wetlands...
