Charlie Brooker never misses with biting political commentary like this. I wish he'd do more series of Weekly Wipe but he's already given us Black Mirror this year, asking for more would just be greedy.

The block quote from Clarence Thomas at the end, that really hits at the crux of what is wrong with the world these days. I suppose it's been this way for a long time already, but man can you not get away from it at all anymore

On the plus side, a Trump loss might bring about the end of it. Not that I'm equivocating but the rise of the alt-right, nativist, white ethnonationalists and the die hard Bernie or busters makes it much harder to be the adults in the room. Which is why as much as I fervently dislike the guy I feel bad for Paul Ryan because I know and you can see he's trying to move his party forward when his base want to be cavemen.

We should have heeded the warning signs a few years ago.

You can only con people and delude yourself for so long before you slowly begin to realise what you've enabled.

The conversation America needed to have, the fight back against White Nationalism, The Alt-Right and Trump. Very well done by Roland Martin. He's doing the good work of exposing these people as the charlatans that they are.

Roland Martin laid the verbal beating on that racist little prick. Richard Spencer is nothing but a spoiled little shit who has lived his life on a pedestal and doesn't feel he should have to share because of the virtue of being born white. Fuck that little piece of shit. Just when I thought there was no one I could hate as much as Martin Shkrelli along comes that silver-spoon jackass.

Oh, there's an ever-expanding cesspool of these Frank TJ Mackey like characters out to make a buck exploiting people's prejudices. They're a dime a dozen on YouTube.

The point is that there needs to be more people like Roland Martin, more conversations taking these people to task, to not let them get away with the low expectation news coverage that softens their image. They need to be exposed. Every member of every community needs to do this with the paranoid radicals in their midst, white people don't get a free pass on that.

Goober, you're back!

This is exactly what is needed, for her to be challenged in a way that just politely shows her for what she is. But I can never bring myself to fully watch conservatives or anyone get completely exposed like that. I don't go in for schadenfreude much, even when it's happening to people I loathe.

If anyone wants to make sense out the year we just had this will help.
