Nothing to see here, just some college Republicans spouting racial epithets.

Aren’t they just adorable?

Here are your future Republican leaders’ folks, so much like the current ones. 

Of course, Turning Point USA would like you to know that they do not condone this type of behavior (being caught on video) and they are definitely, probably going to address this issue.

Courtesy of TPM:

TPUSA released a statement on its Twitter account saying it had “permanently removed the student from any current or future involvement with our organization.” The group made no comment on the other two individuals seen in the video. It also seemed to hedge slightly on Grisar’s culpability, saying that TPUSA had a zero-tolerance policy for hate “no matter the medium or how dated the act or comment.”

TPM’s requests to the UNLV chapter of TPUSA to confirm the identities of the people in the video went unanswered. A TPUSA national spokesperson said he could not identify the other two people in the video. A spokesperson for UNLV confirmed to TPM that a student named Riley Grisar attends the school as an undergraduate and added: “The abhorrent views and language expressed in the video are antithetical to the values of diversity and inclusion that we espouse at UNLV every day. This matter, as well as the interactions that took place on campus last week, has been referred to the appropriate departments for review.”

Racism within TPUSA’s ranks is nothing new. As several outlets noted Friday, from the-then national field director saying she hates black people to anti-Semitic twitter jokes, the group has repeatedly had to answer for members’ bigoted comments after they’ve been publicly exposed.

Does anybody really believe this conservative group espouses the “values of diversity and inclusion?”

Yeah, me neither.

    “eCONomist John Maynard Keynes famously wrote in 1923, in a tract on monetary policy, “In the long run, we’re all dead.”
    I take Keynes’ to mean by this historically lightning-rod statement that, simply put, an economy is successful only if it serves the needs of those living within it.
    Trump’s version of Keynes’ precept might aptly be written thusly: “In the short term, I’m doing all I can to kill you so you don’t have to worry about the long term.”

      “according to the latest U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released last fall, under the current emissions path the world will cross the 1.5 degrees threshold by 2040; and absent significantly stronger global action the world will surpass the 2 degrees target two decades after that.

      Global warming beyond these targets would risk triggering irreversible climate tipping points including the collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet and with it dangerous sea level rise, along with melting permafrost — this frozen Arctic tundra stores carbon dioxide and methane, emissions which would be released into the atmosphere if it melts, further triggering even more warming.” Guterres said, “we need to dramatically accelerate… what everybody knows needs to be done.””

    Every Ivy League school has had its share of sleazy, vulgar, business-destroying alums they’d rather not discuss. It’s just that most of them don’t end up being president.
    Trump’s Wharton education is yet again under the spotlight because Trump is daily demonstrating just how little he learned about economics while studying there. Or while running businesses. Or ever. – Oh, and whatever you do, don’t look at the effect Trump’s tweets had on the stock market for most of the past few days – All of which is to say: WTF, Wharton? one of his professors once called him “the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.” Which is believable.

    In a country that has NEVER had a non-(allegedly) Christian president. Where every national religious holiday is a Christian one. Where there’s a Christian church on every corner.
    If Christians are persecuted in this country, try to imagine how it is for the REST OF US, Asshole.

    This country is overwhelmingly Christian.

    Yet Christians like Mike Pence feel that they are being persecuted.

    FB>”And they feel this way specifically because THEY aren’t allowed to persecute non-Christians.

    These were the people Jesus chased out of the temple with a whip.

    No Christian has ever been persecuted for being a Christian in the United States of America. But one hell of a lot of NON-Christians have been, to use Pence’s own words, “shunned” and “ridiculed.” Also, denied equal rights, oppressed, attacked, murdered.

    Mote, beam, eye, Mike Pence. Why is it Christians like you never seem to remember THAT bible passage?”<Jim Wright
