The View Blasts GA Candidate for ‘Deportation Bus’ Ad: ‘PR Stunt on the Backs of Other People’

The View today trashed a Georgia gubernatorial candidate who got some national attention over an ad featuring a “deportation bus.” Which is exactly what it sounds like. Williams bills himself as a “pro-Trump conservative Republican,” and the back of the bus has a message that says “DANGER! MURDERERS, RAPISTS, KIDNAPPERS, CHILD MOLESTORS [sic], AND OTHER CRIMINALS ON BOARD.” Vice reports YouTube pulled the video for violating its policy on hate speech. Whoopi Goldberg said “these are the things that make me berserk,” asking why on earth someone would want to separate children from their parents. She also mocked Williams for the misspelled “molestor.” Joy Behar called it “the opposite of reality” and noted he’s polling very low in the gubernatorial race (3 percent). Sara Haines said there’s a reasonable debate to be had about immigration, but resorting to that kind of rhetoric is an immediate dialogue-ender.

Georgia Gov. Candidate Says ‘Bedwetter’ Boy Scouts Would’ve Lost WWII: ‘You’d Be Reading This in German’

Here’s an interesting take on the Boy Scouts changing its name to Scouts BSA and beginning to accept girls into some of its programs. The Guardian‘s Ben Jacobs noted on Twitter that Michael Williams, a Republican candidate for governor of Georgia, said that if the Boy Scouts of today – and the supporters of its new changes – parented the soldiers who fought in WWII, the war would have been won by the Axis Powers. “For many decades, the Boy Scouts helped turn boys into men,” he said in a statement, commending his son for becoming an Eagle Scout. “Unfortunately, they have taken a big step toward the eventual destruction of the very elements that made them such an influential organization.

Fmr Georgia Official Draws Rebuke After Saying N-Word at Meeting Declaring April ‘Confederate History Month’

A former member of a Georgia city’s board of commissioners dropped an n-bomb several times at a public meeting, inspiring a rebuke from a black commissioner on the board, in dramatic video released by the Washington Post. Last week, the Atlanta suburb of Griffin, Georgia, declared April as Confederate History Month. And during the public comments part of the meeting announcing the proclamation, a former elected official made the offensive comments. “I told you at that time that there were white folks, and there were black folks when I was growing up,” Larry Johnson, our white former official, told his ex-colleague Rodney McCord, a black current official. “There was white trash — my family — and there was n*****town,” he continued. “I lived next to n*****town.” As the other officials on the board remained silent, a stunned McCord asked Johnson, “You lived next to what town?” Continue reading "Fmr Georgia Official Draws Rebuke After Saying N-Word at Meeting Declaring April ‘Confederate History Month’"

Rush Limbaugh Credits POTUS For National Title Game’s Big Ratings: ‘Support For Trump Was Overwhelming’

Last night, President Donald Trump showed up to watch (part of) the college football championship game between Alabama and Georgia, taking the field before the start of the contest to take part in the playing of the national anthem. The way conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh sees it, Trump’s appearance at the game was the reason ESPN saw a big ratings bump for the exciting national championship that went to an overtime finish. During today’s broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh tried to make the case that Trump placing his hand on his heart and (attempting) to sing the Star-Spangled Banner brought more eyeballs to the game. Furthermore, he claimed that ratings were down for this past weekend’s NFL playoff games and the Golden Globes because they represent liberalism and a disrespect for the country. “The support for Trump was overwhelming,” Limbaugh declared. “And Continue reading "Rush Limbaugh Credits POTUS For National Title Game’s Big Ratings: ‘Support For Trump Was Overwhelming’"

How to Watch Alabama vs. Georgia College Football National Championship Game Live Stream Online

It’s the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. And just as it was in 2012, it’s an all-SEC affair. The Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium to decide college football’s national champion. The Crimson Tide slipped up against Auburn to close out the regular season. But they bounced back from that loss in a big way — clobbering Clemson in the semifinal round of the College Football Playoff last Monday. And so after not even qualifying for their conference championship game, Alabama will play for the whole ball of wax on Monday night. SEC Champion Georgia won a thrilling Rose Bowl over Oklahoma in double overtime last Monday. The Jake Fromm-led offense remarkably kept up with and eventually outpaced the prolific Sooner attack. But that unit will have a much more difficult task against the Crimson Tide defense — a unit as talented Continue reading "How to Watch Alabama vs. Georgia College Football National Championship Game Live Stream Online"
