When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS,CNN and Andy Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

THEY CAN RID THEMSELVES OF TRUMP, BUT THEY CAN'T RID THEMSELVES OF HIS DEPLORABLE BASE

During HBO’s Real Time/Overtime section Friday Maher posed the question of how deeply was GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump damaging the Republican Party and what can they do to save themselves in case he wins.

Former Mitt Romney adviser Lanhee Chen admitted that the party is going through a “temporary correction.”
“After this election, the Republican Party does have some soul-searching to do,” he explained. “But to say that it is permanently changed, implies that I think this guy will have some permanent influence on how we think about the world, and I think, from the perspective of someone who hopes that isn’t true — I hope that isn’t true.”

Host Maher jumped in to ask, “Isn't their problem their voters?”

“I mean they didn't want Trump, a lot of them,” he continued. “And we see a lot of these Vichy Republicans who go along because they don’t want to upset the apple cart. They know better. They know where their bread is buttered, where their voters are. But you can get rid of the Trump, you can’t get rid of the voter. That’s who they want.”
The reality that it is, the hateful racist base that is Trumps followers - they are deplorable, and they thrive on knowing that.
