Gingrich Super PAC Head Rick Tyler: Democratic Party Aborts Black Babies


Rick Tyler, Newt Gingrich's former communications director and now the head of his super PAC Bloviating About Our Future, had/created a terrible time on MSNBC following Tuesday's primary in Florida. Rachel Maddow had Tyler on during her primary coverage to talk about whether Gingrich's superbly negative Florida not-victory speech was using "racially coded language" to try to "appeal to Southern white conservatives." Maddow said she personally thought Gingrich was using language "designed to call on resentment of African American achievement in this country." Tyler immediately accused MNSBC of "race baiting" and then launched into an insane analysis of how the Democrats have failed African Americans. The subtext was that Democrats are racist because they support abortion. EH?

The nugget of Tyler's remarks:

...the Democrats have failed in the public schools with the African Americans, they abort their babies, they've done nothing to lift them out of poverty.

Santorum? Is that you? When Tyler defended Gingrich's remarks that Obama is the "food stamp president," post-primary opiner Al Sharpton responded by saying that there were more new food stamp applications under W. than Obama. Also, GLOBAL RECESSION HELLOOOOOOOO. When asked to explain what Republican principles have actually helped lift people out of poverty, Tyler admits that, well, there haven't been any, but remember Abraham Lincoln? He was a Republican. And also, Gingrich HAS some principles that will lift people out of poverty! Basically he is the first one since Lincoln, if you would just give him a chance!

Maybe we have good intentions too, but our policies haven’t been tried…Maybe we should try our policies, that put people back to work and not ... give them a handout, tell them to live in public housing, shut up, collect a check and vote for Democrats...

No word yet on what those policies actually are, despite Maddow's, Sharpton's and Lawrence O'Donnell's endless attempts to get Tyler to explain them. Tyler's basic gist: EVERYONE SUCKS EXCEPT WE, WHO HAVE DONE NOTHING.

As Tyler and Sharpton escalated to the point where it became really difficult to detect actual English words, Tyler then brought George Lucas into it, just to strengthen his argument, saying that African Americans didn't have "any" role models until the movie Red Tails (which is about the Tuskegee Airmen).

"They have many," said Sharpton. "They have doctors, they have lawyers. We have many role models."

"Sure they do, but Hollywood doesn’t show that." WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH NEWT? Is Team Newt really trying to somehow take credit for knowledge of the existence of Red Tails, just because he and George Lucas are both sort of cuddly and like space???

So what, for what couldn't possibly be the last time, but should be, is THE NEWT DEAL? Nobody knows, which is really fine, come to think of it, shhhhh. [Salon]

Hell of a coincidence we have here! On the very same day that a Russian spy gets arrested for using the NRA as a conduit to the Republican Party -- ahem POLITICAL PARTY 1! -- the United States Treasury announces that it won't be collecting donor information from "social welfare groups." Guess which "GUN RIGHTS ORGANIZATION" is a tax exempt social welfare group that raised $337 million in 2016 and will now be able to hide its donor list from the prying eyes of the American public?

Here's a hint:

That's right, donors to the the NRA and those Kochsuckers at Americans for Prosperity can now dump infinity political dollars into their lobbying and electioneering efforts without having their names disclosed to the Federal Election Commission. Or the IRS. Or anyone who might object to propping up lunatic politicians who want to arm preschoolers.

In the bad old days, i.e. yesterday, "social welfare organizations" had to give the IRS names and addresses of anyone donating over $5,000. But now they get to keep it all secret, as White Jesus and Charles Koch intended. Here's how the Treasury explains the change on its website.

Tax-exempt organizations described by section 501(c), other than section 501(c)(3) organizations, are no longer required to report the names and addresses of their contributors on the Schedule B of their Forms 990 or 990-EZ.

Okay, now 'splain us how awesome this is gonna be, Steven Mnuchin!

Americans shouldn't be required to send the IRS information that it doesn't need to effectively enforce our tax laws, and the IRS simply does not need tax returns with donor names and addresses to do its job in this area. It is important to emphasize that this change will in no way limit transparency. The same information about tax-exempt organizations that was previously available to the public will continue to be available, while private taxpayer information will be better protected.

BOOOOORING! Hey, Mitch McConnell, you're a big old whore -- say the quiet part out loud to the Wall Street Journal.

The IRS's decision is a move in the right direction to end activist regulators' culture of intimidation to silence political speech. [...] More and more states were using these documents to chill political discourse, rather than encourage it.

That'll do it! Can't do anything about the pizza racists running their mouths and ruining the grift. But you can make it harder for customers to work out what corporate owners do with their earnings. Because money is speech, and speech is free, and we all have a First Amendment right to secretly fund organizations that team up with Russia to ratfuck American elections and starve the poor.

Thanks, Justice Kennedy!

Fox News has been LI'L BIT CONFUSED about how to cover Donald Trump's treason meeting with Vladimir Putin. There was a lot of tut-tutting from Fox's daytime journalists (the "real" ones) on Monday, but then it was Double Dipshit Time on Monday night as Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity took over the commentary. Carlson found the real election hackers (brown Mexican people who either move to America and become legal citizens who vote or brown Mexican people who are just born here, as if THAT is allowed!) and declared that Russian meddling is like number 115 on the list of things that threaten America. (The other 114 are the blacks and the Mexicans and the gypsies, because Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist.) Meanwhile, Hannity hosted Donald Trump for some kind of mutual lick-off session where Trump said that Putin had informed him that there was NO COLLUSION. It's good to have a KGB handler who remembers stuff like that!

But even then, there was a hopeful moment! Fox News's Chris Wallace committed an actual act of journalism Monday night when he interviewed Vladimir Putin, going so far as to stick Robert Mueller's indictments in the Russian leader's stupid fucking face and dare him to read them. He even asked Putin why he constantly murders people with poison. GO GET HIM, CHRIS WALLACE!

Usually the next morning's "Fox & Friends" is like Carlson and Hannity's afterbirth, but Tuesday morning was a little bit different! For some reason, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade and Abby Huntsman were not 100% pleased with Dear Leader's behavior in Helsinki! So they put on their Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski masks and did their best impression of a more dumber version of "Morning Joe," and oh my god it was SO WEIRD. Like, they would be outraged for a second, but then they would immediately compliment him and reassure him that he is a Very Good Boy who won that presidential election fair and square.
