Oh, and this, too:

None of this appears to matter to Scalise, who is scheduled to speak Oct. 13 at the Values Voter Summit (VVS), a political convention attended by the who’s who of the far religious right and sponsored by the Family Research Council (FRC). The Southern Poverty Law Center has called the FRC a hate group due to its relentless attacks on the LGBTQ community over the past two decades and links to white supremacy groups by some of its members.

Attacking the LGBTQ community has been one of the FRC’s primary activities as a religious right lobbying group, and members have influenced some of the draconian policies promoted by the administration of President Donald Trump.

Among the things the FRC has promoted over the many years of its existence is the false association that gays and lesbians are more likely to sexually abuse children than heterosexual men and women, and that people are “recruited” into the gay lifestyle and, therefore, can be “un–recruited” via “reparative therapy.”

The group also has spent a considerable amount of time and resources fighting same–sex marriage in the U.S., as has Scalise, who authored Louisiana’s 2004 ban on same–sex marriage while a member of that state’s legislature.

This is an awesome nugget I came across on 538 today:

I’m just going to quote ABC News here on the results it got in a survey with the Washington Post to an open-ended question asking for the one word that best describes views of Trump: “The ten most common words that respondents gave were: ‘incompetent,’ ‘arrogant,’ ‘strong,’ ‘idiot,’ ‘egotistical,’ ‘ignorant,’ ‘great,’ ‘racist,’ ‘a——’ and ‘narcissistic.’”

Good to see Pence is Trump's bitch.

Trump told Pence to walkout if anyone kneeled. SF has more players that kneel than any other team. Pence gets to show instate support for his Colts and Trump gets a cheap walkout by his puppet.

How much did it cost taxpayers for the stunt of flying this buffoon from Vegas to Indy then to a fundraiser in Cali?

An extra 250k.

Wont pay for pre-existing conditions but more than willing to spend for this.

if you ever wonder why the bears were so irrelevant for so long, this guy's work in the personnel department had a lot to do with it.

All of this has really made me think how truly insidious it was how the country intentionally went nuts of the pledge during the height of the Red Scare; it seems to have truly succeeded in instilling a real kind of superficial, easily provoked style of blind loyalty in a HUGE part of the population. I keep reading/hearing people railing how the players should have to all be on the field and standing for the anthem because "it's their job/against the rules of their job," and I first I thought, "well, surely if you pointed out to them how nuts it would be if suddenly at their own job they found out it was a new rule that everyone had to stand for the anthem at the start of their shift some of them might think twice about this." But then I realized that, no, they wouldn't, and they'd probably actually welcome such a change without thinking, and even think it was a good idea. That's creepy as hell.
