Trumps presidency has given voice to some of the country's worst. Aaron Schlossberg feels it's OK to shout racists rants in public.

We fail as a society more often than not these days but Gina Haspel's confirmation is a particularly grim moment in our history. Shame to everyone involved.

Yeah, she's a reminder that while Trump is a huge step down from Obama, Obama had a long way to step up from W.

I think the thing I liked even less than the fact that she oversaw torture was the fact that she's completely unrepentant, and won't even give the matter the dignity of an honest answer.

We can only hope the midterms suspected Blue Wave will get us back on track. I've heard the Republican party is in what some call a zombie state. Bob Mueller is another hope. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Six Democrats voted to confirm her. They had an opportunity to stop this and failed.

That frightens me. Democrats are not stepping up to the plate when the opportunity to do so presents itself. What's their plan? The party lacks strong leadership. I hope Holder takes a leadership role.

It would be a challenge for Trump to end up worse than W. I saw the post-presidency reverence for Bush coming but it doesnt make it any less nauseating.

The guy is a racist d-bag but you know what I like? The folks that you hear in the background standing up to him. He says "this is America" as to why the workers should not speak Spanish in his warped mind and some woman off camera says "Yeah, this IS America". Several people speak out against him and the management asks him to leave.

Recently there was another racist d-bag insulting a Muslim woman wearing the veil and she records him and her response. Again people speak out against him and the management asks him to leave.

The two black guys who were arrested without cause when the mgr called the cops because they were "loitering", there were people in that video speaking up for them also.

There are racists out there and Trump has given them a sense they can speak out but the non-racists among us (hopefully the majority) are speaking up against them. Just average folks in delis and coffee shops saying cut it out, unacceptable, you leave. That heartens me, it is too easy for "good" people to just sit there and let it happen and that is NOT happening at least not all of the time.

NY Post: Racist lawyer kicked out of his office space

Quote:
Racist lawyer Aaron Schlossberg will have to find new office space — and an attorney of his own.

The 44-year-old was kicked out of his Madison Avenue work space Thursday after he was was captured in a hate-filled rant at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers — and then a Congressman filed a formal complaint to the state court system’s disciplinary committee.

Schlossberg had been using a business center in 275 Madison Ave. as an office address for his private law firm — but has been given the boot over the shocking video that went viral Wednesday.

It's just so easy to like a guy who can act like a human when faced with one who doesn't.

Maybe he'll also lose some of his clients.

These people were involved.
Democrats YES: Manchin, Donnelly, Warner, Nelson, Shaheen, Heitkamp

(Republicans NO: Paul, Flake)

Shame is correct, but if the person doesn't feel it, or get held to account for it so they might, the person just moves on. Public does too bc leaders said we cool.

Concurrent to that, there's another viral (supposedly and hopefully from Canada) of a woman arguing with a coffee shop clerk. She gets so unhinged that she drops pants and defecates on the floor, picks the product up and throws it at him, uses napkins from the counter to "clean up" with, throws THOSE at him, and continues to freak out while standing there fully exposed. Needless to say, someone who goes that far is quite probably mentally unfit for society, but stans like this guy are adjacent to that lot of folk. You don't cause multiple (not his first rodeo) public disturbances like that unless you have a personality disorder and severe anger management problems, which are often paired with the standard issue racism and xenophobia. It's been theorized that there's something innate in modernity that causes people to lose their sh in public like this (literally in the case of the woman above). I might agree, but Edvard Munch completed his first version of The Scream in 1893...well before Macaulay Culkin resurrected it. It's not a new idea. Is it the life and times we live in or are human beings just loonies at root?

And what's remarkably chilling about this is that she's probably one of the most qualified, if not the most qualified, person for a job that Trump has appointed. I mean that seriously.

That's not quite what I was suggesting! I'd put a smiling or laughing emoticon here, but it's really not a laughing matter.
