big fan of Frederick Douglass


Frederick Douglass: Hero former slave, abolitionist, diplomat, author, statesman, early adopter of fight for women's suffrage. Died in 1895.

Frederick Douglass, according to "President" Donald Trump: "Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an amazing job that is being recognized more and more, I noticed."

Just amazing. Trump's been hearing people talking. Who? Oh, just people. Frederick Douglass. He's so hot these days. Frederick Douglass.

Frederick Douglass, according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer:

Well, I think there's contribution, I think [Trump] wants to highlight the contributions that he has made, and I think through a lot of the actions and statements that he's gonna make, the contributions of Frederick Douglass will become more and more.

Which contributions? OH, ALL OF THEM KATIE.

These dildo goblins have never heard of Frederick Douglass.

Also too:

We are so fucked.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
