According to conservative commentator Star Parker, the pride and confederate flags are identical twins...

On Tuesday morning's episode of Fox & Friends on Fox News, conservative commentator Star Parker, when confronted about the Charlottesville Unite-the-Right rally over the weekend and President Donald Trump's response to it, said this to co-host Steve Doocey:

"That is not what happened. Nancy Pelosi is exploiting an opportunity that they think will play to their side. On Saturday, there were two sides that were in an American city that were - then it was escalating very rapidly. No, the question became then, well, do you denounce the one part of it? But you know what's really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up. These two flags represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here. So if Nancy Pelosi wants to say that we're going to start shutting down First Amendment rights of a certain…

Donald Trump reads Hallmark cards to heal a wounded nation

Following the heat he faced for not calling out the white supremacists who marched at a Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, President Donald Trump did so today in a half-assed manner while reading from a teleprompter. Yes, his words regarding the tragedy were to sincerity what rocket launchers were to Gandhi.

This is what I picture Trump thinking at the time of giving the speech: "Okay, act presidential, be sincere, be genu-, genu-, what's that word? Genubob or whatever. Alright, just remember. Read the words - racism is bad, racism is bad, racism is bad. Okay, thank you, my fellow Muricans. What do those words on the prompter say? Mm, racism is bad, okay? Bigly. Some people did some bad things over the weekend. Bad things are not good things. Don't do bad things that aren't good things. God bless you all and God bless the United States of Murica."

While he's at it, Trump might as well start reading Hallmark sympathy cards whi…

The difference between the alt-right and antifa

Not long after the ugly turn of events which took place at the "Unite the Right" march in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, many Republicans, led by President Donald Trump, attempted to deflect blame to the far-left group antifa and depict the marchers as alt-right in their ideology and not emblematic of the Republican Party as a whole. Regardless of these attempts at spin, however, there's a stark difference between the two groups and their relation to the Democrat and Republican parties, respectively.

First off, for those who aren't familiar with the terms "alt-right" and "antifa," allow me to define them for you.

Alt-right is short for "alternative right," which is, as reported by the Associated Press, "a name currently embraced by some white supremacists and white nationalists to refer to themselves and their ideology, which emphasizes preserving and protecting the white race in the United States in addition to, or over, oth…

Calling a spade a spade in Charlottesville

Following the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, which resulted in 3 deaths and several injuries, while President Donald Trump has remained relatively silent regarding the event and tragedy, several Republicans condemned the acts, even going so far as to say, "This is not us." For as much as I'd hate to disagree, I have to call a spade a spade - Charlottesville is what the modern-day Republican Party has become, and unless moderates fight to retain control of the GOP, this is what the party will be in the future.

Of course, when making such a claim, many self-described Republicans will say: "These are fringe extremists! They're not actually Republicans!," "That'd be like saying all Democrats are like the hate group Black Lives Matter!," and "Trump had nothing to do with this!"

First off, these "fringe extremists" were referred to as "Unite the Right." That's not to say they we…

Why Trump and his supporters need to shut the FACT up about jobs and the stock market...

On January 20th of this year, a never-before-seen light shined down on the United States of America and an indescribable magic ensued, where the impoverished became enriched, the enslaved became free, the Debbie Downers became perky high school cheerleaders named Marcia. No, that's not what happened six and a half months ago when Donald Trump was inaugurated as our 45th president, but that's what his most ardent supporters, including himself, would have you believe.

When asked to name Donald Trump's biggest legislative accomplishment, the president and his staunch followers tend to go the route of, "Well, just look at the great jobs numbers, the low unemployment rate, the record-breaking stock market! That has to count for something!"

Oddly enough, these same individuals criticized then President Obama for reporting fake jobs numbers and unemployment rates, with Donald Trump being the most vocal critic at times.

I'm sorry, but Donald Trump has done nothing to…

Corey Lewandowski needs to stop sniffing glue...

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski just uttered something so ridiculous, I'm thinking he may have serious potential in stand-up. The sad part about it is, however, he wasn't joking.

As a guest on the Fox News show The Fox News Specialists, Lewandowski said this, and yes, with a straight face:

"You have to let Trump be Trump. I've said it 100 times in my life. Anyone who thinks he's going to change the president is not going to. He is the greatest communicator we have ever seen as an elected official. There is no question about it."

I wanna send this over to Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers...

"Really? Really?!? I mean, REALLY?!?!?"

Mr. Lewandowski, let's look at history, shall we?

Trump: "You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p*ssy. You can do anyt…

Ray Lewis is now the Elmer Fudd of football: "Be vewwy vewwy qwiet."

Not long ago, former Pro Bowl quarterback and human-highlight reel Michael Vick came under scrutiny for advising former Super Bowl and current free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick to get a haircut, saying image is important. While I disagreed with the former #1 pick's assertion that Kaepernick's protests last season played no factor in him not being signed today, I could understand his unfortunately real assertion that most NFL owners are white and there's often a double-standard in the league as far as black and white players are concerned, particularly when it comes to image.

Well, now it's former Super Bowl and future Hall-of-Fame linebacker Ray Lewis's turn, and in my opinion, his advice to Kaepernick is far more troubling than Vick's. Just the other day, Lewis said this:

"The football field is our sanctuary. If you do nothing else, young man, get back on the football field and let your play speak for itself. And what you do off the field, don't …

After one game, new Yankees manager Donald Trump takes credit for team's 99-game win streak

Sadly, two days ago, in the midst of a 98-game win streak, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi was forced to resign due to health complications. Interim manager Donald Trump then led his team to a 10-9 victory over the winless Chicago White Sox yesterday, increasing the win streak to 99 games. After yet another record-breaking win for the team, Trump said the following in his post-game press conference:

"Can you believe it? 99 games. It's believable, fantastic, tremendous, all of those words, so believdoustastic! I don't like to brag, but let's give credit where credit is due - I'm 99-0. Why is no one talking about that? We're 99-0 in our last 99 games, I'm currently the coach, so like yeah, I'm undefeated in 99 games, even in those 50 games I missed earlier in the season for, uh, legal reasons, and those 48 others I fell asleep during. I'm the best, the greatest, and you can't spell 99 without 1! Google it!"

NFL GM Donald Trump releases all players and fires all coaches

In an unprecedented move, NFL GM Donald Trump has just released all of his team's players and fired all of his coaches. When asked by ESPN NFL analyst John Clayton on the chaos surrounding his team, Mr. Trump said this:

"Chaos? What chaos? When I became GM of this team, I said I had the best coaches, the best players, and had 100% confidence in them, and I meant it! I still do; I still do. But while I had the best coaches and the best players before, the ones I'm going to get are even bester, believe me! They're going to be the best of the bestest, even bester than the bestest I had before them! Period! Look, I have no team, but it's the best team, and even if I have to play all four positions on the court at one time, or whatever it is, I'm going to make us great again, that I can promise you; that I can promise you."

As the GM began walking away from the ESPN reporter, Clayton asked, "Who are you going after at quarterback?" to which Trump res…

There's no excuse for keeping transgender men and women out of our military

Just one week ago, Donald Trump made his thoughts on transgender individuals in the military known via Twitter, when he posted the following message in a series of tweets:

"After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you."

First thing's first, which generals and military experts was Mr. Trump talking to? In an article which was just released, it's being reported that 56 retired generals and admirals have released a statement which runs contrary to the president's claim that such individuals are on his side in this debate. In the statement, they wrote:

"This proposed ban, if implemented, would cause significant dis…

"CSA: The Confederate States Of America"

- "'C.S.A.' tells a counter-story of how slavery survives to the present day-and it uses traces of contemporary pop culture to show that the notion isn't really even such a stretch." - Richard Brody (New Yorker)

- "A piece of well-crafted righteous indignation." - Ann Hornaday (Washington Post)

- "By slyly nudging both history and the language of television, this mock documentary about an America won by the Confederacy ... manages to be both shocking and strangely banal in equal measure." - Geoff Pevere (Toronto Star)

- "A sometimes incisive, sometimes amateurish look at race in America, the things we do and tolerate as a nation that are really no different from an America ruled by unrepentant slave-holders." - Roger Moore (Orlando Sentinel)

- "[Writer/Director] Willmott could have easily stumbled over his own cleverness but, as with the rest of the movie, his fantasia is intellectually rigorous and makes for stimulating debate.…

Why Michael Vick is both right and wrong about Colin Kaepernick

Former #1 draft pick and human highlight reel, Michael Vick, recently came under some scrutiny due to advice he provided former Super Bowl quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

During an interview with Jason Whitlock on Fox Sports's Speak for Yourself, Vick said:

"The first thing we've got to get Colin to do is cut his hair. Listen, I'm not up here trying to be politically correct. Even if he put cornrows in there, I don't think he should represent himself in that way, in terms of just the hairstyle. Just go clean-cut, you know, why not? You're already dealing with a lot, a lot of controversy surrounding this issue, and the most important thing he needs to do is just try to be presentable."

The former Pro Bowl quarterback added:

"The gesture he made last year he took the stand to do what he did, listen, we all appreciated it, we respected it, and it was a good thing. I really think the stand that he took has nothing to do with him not having a job playing in t…
