Re: “Oakland Landlord Evicts Tenant, Then Hangs Pro-Trump Billboard on Building

Untruthfully saying the city has declared the residence unlawful SHOULD be actionable, both by the renter and the city. The city should take legal action against this slime.

Hanging that sign is creating a hostile environment and intimidation. I'd say a lawsuit should be on order.

Re: “Oakland Landlord Evicts Tenant, Then Hangs Pro-Trump Billboard on Building

Other Gorelicks have been effective legal counsel for poor people in Oakland for years; this new-Jack Gorelick has his fangs out now that Trump has normalized hate and ignorance. This particular weakling is hiding his predation under Trump's trumphet call to all the idiots: "Here Ye, Here Ye, you don't have to hide your hate any longer!" Oaklanders, he hopes, will bow down to such treatment of its fragile citizens, but I suspect this idiot will rue the day he stuck his neck out to celebrate hateful derision!

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

The left has rescued this country so many times from the right (I mean the wrong): Great Depression, Reaganomics, random wars. Really? You think Obama was given a chance to govern? No way. The friggin', selfish, manipulative, cheating, war-mongering republicans (cap left off purposely -- they don't deserve one) wouldn't give Obama an inch. Obama succeeded, as well as he could, with the obstructionist congress that he had. Trump supporters: a basket of deplorables, that we are ALL now riding in, to hell. Don't believe me? Look at his cabinet choices: a bigoted fake news chairman as senior counselor, corporate raiders for treasury, a previously fired general for national security, a climate denier for EPA, a billionaire charter school proponent for education, "It's fun to shoot people" secretary of defense, not to mention the many conflicts of interest of his business dealings. What a mess. Leave it to the left to rescue again. Only this time, the lefts will be way left of center. No more trying to meet the right half-way. There will be such a negative reaction to Trump and his extreme-right policies -- there will be a Bernie Revolution!

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

During the campaign I really didn't get it when Trump yelled "I love the poorly educated"...I believe this group was not offended but rather elated that someone was listening...Are YOU listening Liberals?? We are they and they are we....
Great article Jay!

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

generation of liberals and progressives narcissistically unaware of conditions outside their self-defined groups. It is a bit much for someone to say they are 99% when so many people don't agree. Trump spoke to many who don't agree with those who say they are 99% and those who are identified as 1%. The Progressives math is wrong and so many know it.

You might have given Obama a chance but the Republicans in Congress NEVER did.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

In a way you are pissing on a wall. Give Trump a chance. We gave Obama a HUGE chance and he blew it with his perverted ideology that has little to do with the USA, and more with his muslim upbringing. Obama didn't even help his brothers who need help desperately! So, let's give Trump a chance and not be so wussily put off because he is a big mouthed New Yorker and richer than the rest of us. He is also a patriot, and maybe it is time for lefties in the East Bay, anywhere, to stop categorizing patriots as some kind of bigot? Maybe it's the other guys who are the bigots? It often seems that way! Let's give this gigantic and irrefutable swing to the right a fair trial period, before we decide we can see into the future.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

US/Western Culture is again channeling our perceptions, wrongly, into an either-or paradigm. Reality is multidimensional and multi-causal. US political issues are about BOTH-AND race and class and they are largely inseparable. Bernie Sanders makes the same mistake that socialists and folks on the left have frequently made: that class is more important than race or "identity politics." He wants to draw us into a class struggle within and to reform the Democrat Party. This is a historically proven mistake and a waste of energy. Read "The Miner's Canary" for examples of how to form successful coalitions across lines of both race and class.

Re: “PG&E's Assault on Solar Power

There should be restrictions on emitting such large amount of CO2 greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. The latter is the issue the governors should be constrained about, rather, they should praise all the benefits that solar companies bring out. As a user of the services of LA Solar Group, I would advice you to purchase their solar powered panels, as they provide panels with great mechanical engineering designs.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

More than anything, the election illustrates fragmentation. The "them's" are large and many; The "us" is small and few.

Re: “Congresswoman Barbara Lee on President Trump: 'The Fight is Coming'

It's a shame that someone like this, could get elected to Congress.

She spends her time spending other peoples money to get her self re-elected to office; I wonder if she has ever had a job in the real world.

Progress made in the last 8 years; 25 trillion in debt, more people on public assistance , foreign policy decisions that have been a disaster.

There is nothing like a sore loser, especially when that sore loser is a big government liberal!

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf on President Trump: 'Move Beyond Anger to Action'

It's a shame that Oakland has a Mayor that needs a civics lesson.

Her comments about progressive values is what got defeated in November, people are sick and tired of career politicians taking other peoples income to finance their personal and social agendas.

It's unfortunate that we have elected officials that take an oath of office and then do everything they can to violate the very oath they have taken to uphold the law.

Re: “Oakland Activist Cat Brooks on President Trump: 'My Revolutionary Prayer'

When will the black on black genocide be acknowledged and become equally denounced? I live in East Oakland and with in a five houe radius, one family has lost both of their sons, another family lost a daughter, the other 3 lost a grandson each. All these murders were black on black killings. Facts prove that more black men are killed by black men then by any other race or law enforcement every year. I don't understand why there is not marching in the streets for that, why is this loss of so many black lives not a reason?

Really no one that's a competitor? How about FIFTY24SF, 111 Minna, Mirus, Heron Arts? Thanks for supporting all the local galleries that have never screwed anyone over Lauren Nopalitano!
