Mike's Blog Round Up
August 21, 2015

Because it's so easy to write The Donald off as some kind of silly joke, even as he and his filth remain firmly on top of the Republican presidential field, it's important to keep in mind that he's not about making America great again, as he so egomaniacally claims, he's about making America hate again. And that hatred, the hatred that he inspires, has real consequences, like the violent assault on that homeless man in Boston. There's some Trumpism in action for you.

Frankly Curious: Britain's Labour Party is a lot like America's (new) Democrats.

Infidel753: The GOP is full of radical reactionaries on abortion.

Prairie Weather: Hillary adopts progressive ideas on the campaign trail.

And because it's important not just to take The Donald seriously but also to come clean about The Hillary:

Hillary Clinton and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad UN/FEMA Conspiracy.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
