Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse Who Calls Republicans Racists Belongs to Whites-Only Country Club

Democrat Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse took criticism for belonging to an all-white country club.

On Monday, Democrat Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse took criticism for belonging to an all-white country club despite his history of calling Trump, Trump voters, and Republicans a bunch of racists.

In the past, Whitehouse accused Trump of “toiling to deepen the fault lines in American life” and added, “We can and must do better to root out systemic racism in its many forms and meet America’s full promise of justice for all.”

But despite his continued taunts against the right, Whitehouse belongs to the all-white private Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport, Rhode Island.

Oddly, Whitehouse doesn’t seem to see any conflict between his accusations at others and the racist club to which he belongs.

In 2017, the Sen. told GoLocal’s News Editor Kate Nagle “I think it would be nice if they (Bailey’s Beach Club) changed a little bit, but it’s not my position,” and added that he would quietly “take that up privately” when asked if he would urge the club to accept blacks, the Daily Wire reported.

But last Friday, the site again asked Whitehouse about his membership in the exclusive club, a membership that he did change since 2017 when he was last asked about it.

“Back in 2017, you had expressed concerns about the membership of the all-white Bailey’s Beach Club. You said that you hoped it would become more diverse. Now, your family’s been members; your wife is one of the largest shareholders. Has there been any traction in that? Are there any minority members of the club now?”

Whitehouse again responded that the club is “working on that.”

Seriously? It’s been four years and they still haven’t been able to figure out if they can allow blacks to join?

That hardly seems likely, does it? The truth is they have no intention of changing their racist policy.

Imagine if a Republican belonged to a club like this. Would the media give him a pass year after year like this?

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

Published

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
