No, that's the guy from Florida. Robinson a bit scarier IMO.

Mark Robinson is likely to get Joe Biden NC's EC votes. He is anti-woman to the point where he doesn't think they should get to vote, and has said the quiet part out loud that a woman's womb does not belong to her. Good luck with that this Roevember.

"Mark Robinson Is MAGA's Great Black Hope"

I think that is an insult to most black pwrents who can and do identify as parents who want their kids safe at home, in the street and especially at school; just like white parents ao I suggest a different headline"

"Mark Robinson Is MAGA's Great Psycho Hope"

This jerk is ignoring the mass murders committed at many high schools with AR-15 type weapons and the hundreds of murders committed all over the country with all sorts of gun and joimimg with the NRA and Republicans to oppose any legislation to reducw the carnage. Also
Reopublicans have opposed everything good for black or poor people in this country from voting rights to the Affordanle Care Act, that now benefits 45 million low income Americans not getting healthcsre from employers, and the NTA that opposes any attempt to limit gun violence which is so odestructive to the black community so I'm wondering when Mr. Robinson will be a spokesman in a NRA sponsored commercial stating thst the "Central Park Five Used No Guns In he crime They Didn't Commit" Tbut that Donald Trump continued to ren full psge aads calling for their execution even after DNA wvidence proved they were entirely innocent. Has Donald ever apologised for that? Does Robinson support him and the NRA? Yes he does. So what does that make him? A BIG SELLOUT! that's what.
For Republicans who have and do oppose everythibg that has helped black people and/or poor people from voting rights and Civil Rights to affordable healthcare (ACA) now serving 45 million Americans and even makes speeches for the NRA which can't wipe all the blood off their hands. He is the posterboy for SELLOUT; i.e,,No principles, no loyalty to anyone rxcept those who can boost his poliiical aspirations. Can't wait til he is talked about as a Trunp running mate. Maybe he can defend the NRA by reminding America that the "Central Park Five" didn't use any guns in the crime they didn't commit that Donald trump continued to call for their executions for even after they were completely exhonertsted. I honestly don't know how anyone can ignore that historical fact today! And his paternalistic attitudes about women are ridiculous and disgusting.

Robinson is also vehemently - almost violently - anti-abortion even though he admits that he and his wife decided to have one when a baby was inconvenient for them. That should tell you almost everything you need to know about him.

No, not this article. but he did do that.

There has been vast reporting on Robinson entertaining conspiracy theories but this is believed to be the first audio of him discussing conspiracies about Pearl Harbor and Patton.

Robinson can be heard saying you know, I'm not prepared to say our government intentionally set Pearl Harbor up. I know there's a lot of conspiracy theories that say that ... '

At that moment the host interrupted with I will! There's too much proof' behind the theory that the US was behind the attack.

Definitely,' Robinson responds. 'There's definitely questions that are out there, serious questions that have been raised.'

The attack in Hawaii by Japan on December 7, 1941 killed 2,403 Americans.

Robinson went on to argue that President Franklin Roosevelt's decision to enter the war was part of a communist conspiracy to help Stalin.

When you take in look at the totality of it, and look at the way FDR completely disregarded the fight in Japan and focused all of his energy, all of his energy was focused on a way for us to get to Europe, and not just to get to Europe, but to get over there to help the guy he called Uncle Joe,' Robinson said.

So wait a minute, we went to the Europe, and we quote freed Europe from the Nazis, but then we turned right around and turned over even more property to the communists. That doesn't make any sense,' he went on.

Industrialists in the US hated Roosevelt even attempting a coup at one point so it is not surprising they have encouraged conspiracy theories about him being complicit in the Pearl Harbor attack but as Afmiral Yamamoto said:"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

Which it certainly did and critics be damned, he lead this country out of the Great Republican Depression of 1929 and then lead us and our allies to victory over both Japan and Germany and, at the same time created the largest middle class in the history of the world and the largest economy in the world which even China, with their huge population still can't equal. He was, by far, the greatest President of the 20th Century and arguably the greatest President in American History. The America we live in today is mostly the result of his Presidency.
And people ask why I'm a Democrat? And why I just laugh!

Another 'Great Black Dope' from the Radical Reich...

It seems to be the only kind they can get to
pull the GOP Co. wagon.

Which is sad/funny. They had the ultimate
black Potential POTUS in Colin Powell years back,
and made a hard pass on him because of @

Now all they can get are looneys.

"And people ask why I'm a Democrat? And why I just laugh!"

Proving once again that Democrats are busy fighting the problems of the 1900s. Just like racism. Hey, guess what, the country moved on. We've improved. Well, except for the Great Democrat Recession of 2008.

Regarding the article, again, Dems just proving that they care about black votes...ahem, black people...unless they don't completely subscribe to liberal ideology.

It sucks to have a party these days that is so myopic and unobjective because all it is doing is causing the other side to be even more aggressive in their extremes. Which is why we have Biden...a guy who has no business in office at his mental age and he proves it constantly...and Trump...a guy who should never have been in office in the first place and never would have been if liberals hadn't gone so far to the extreme left...are our POTUS candidates.

? but to get over there to help the guy he called Uncle Joe,'"
Oh, under Roosevelt's leadership the emphasis wasn't on helping Churchill and the British? And towards the end of the war the Allies race to Berlin was because he loved Stalin so much? Laughable! We were racing to claim as much of Berlin for the Allies as we could before Stalin could get his troops there. Later after Roosevel's death, yhrtr has always been a theory about the use of the atomic bomb on Japan, which was already largely defeated, was really a very strong message to Stalin that we had the power to prevent him from thinking he could invade Europe which was always the goal of Russian leaders for several centuries but the U.S, prevented that from happening.Today, we still see Putin with that same dream of European Empire and it is, again, the US, along with NATO and the courageous Ukrainian military, that is preventing him from achieving that ancient goal! So In 1936-2039 Republicans were quite friendly with Hitler but had to quickly change their behavior when Japan attacked us in 1941 which automatically put us at war with the Axis Powera; I'm just wondering what will have to happen to remind them that they are Americans this go round? A nuclear attack? God, I hope not

How much have we improved?
Is racism over, or is racism just something you've moved on from because it doesn't seem like much of a problem to you, and you see bigger problems, like openly tolerating trans people the way we now openly tolerate black people?

""Proving once again that Democrats are busy fighting the problems of the 1900s.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.""George Santayana, The Life of Reason, 1905. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.

Republicans and go kiss Putin's ass until he proves how dangerous he is but then it will be too late just like previous Republicans did with Hitler!
