Your antidote for the GOP “debate”

Right about now, a lot of people are probably so inebriated from playing GOP “debate” drinking games that they’ve said “screw the bathroom…screw getting up outta this chair…I’m gonna pee riiiiiiiiiiight here”. Those who aren’t are either the fucking assholes who vote conservative (I have a few middle fingers around here for them), or those few brave souls like Ed Brayton who live-blogged the 2015 clownfest so that others wouldn’t have to. If you’re one of those brave souls and you need something to purge your mind of all the hate, bigotry, and sheer inanity, I have the cure!

Mike Huckabee has the sadz

Republican presidential hopeful and all ’round douchebag Mike Huckabee is feeling left out. While the list of Republican candidates has grown large enough to field a sports team, according to him, the media only wants to talk about one man: Donald Trump. He even said as much in a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer. Here’s part of the transcript:

Question: What happens when the skeleton in the closet confronts the elephant in the room?

Answer: The animated film ‘Confessions of an Idiom‘.

The short film, by creators Amanda Koh and Mollie Helms of Ringling College of Art and Design, features a visual collection of idiom puns as the skeleton attempts to get something off its chest. How many can you identify (I recognized 26)?

The United States is an Entitlement Nation

For this post, I’ll be donning my most favoritest hat of all time.

I’m about to say something that will shock readers. No, I’m not going to put up a trigger warning because those things are stupid. Trigger warnings are a creation of politically correct leftist liberal feminist communist marxists who whine and cry about any little thing. Who cares if a post about sexual assault triggers horrific memories in readers? Why does it matter if someone is made uncomfortable because a discussion of childhood abuse brings back awful memories? By God, this is still a free country and I’m tired of my rights being infringed. The First Amendment guarantees me the right to say what I want, when I want, and where I want, even if the things I say might trigger those who have been victimized. And don’t even think about criticizing me, because I’m within my rights as a citizen of this country!

Now, that shocking thing I was going to say?

This country has become an entitlement nation. We have become a nation of people looking for handouts from the government. The free housing was bad enough, but many of these moochers also get free food and the Nanny State liberal supporters are ok with this! Instead of people having a strong work ethic like they did back in the glory days of yesteryear-before the Civil Rights Movement, the Gay Rights Movement, and Women’s Liberation ruined this country with their pursuit of “equality”–people just want shit handed to them on a platter. As if we all have a right to housing. Or food. What’s more, our tax dollars support this! Mine, and yours, yours, and yours too. Our money, that we work hard for, is being used to assist people who have been fired or laid off from a job, or those people who have disabilities that prevent them from working.  With the release of a new Census Bureau survey, I’ve found another group that conservatives ought to direct their ire toward:

GOP Calls Ferguson Voter Registration Drive ‘Disgusting’; Terrified Community Will Start Voting

The executive director of Missouri’s Republican party could barely contain his rage when he learned that one of the facets of recent protests in Ferguson has been a voter registration drive. His reaction betrays a sense of entitlement that comes from living in an age of political apathy: citizens shouldn’t be allowed to vote for change when they see injustice in the world, that isn’t “fair.” Have we gone mad? That’s exactly what voters are supposed to do.
Like many economically distressed communities around the country, Ferguson’s voter turnout for the last few elections has been dismal. Just 12% of residents bothered to vote one way or the other in the last election. It may explain why Ferguson’s politicians are mostly white and mostly out-of-touch with the residents.


 

Right-Wing Media Continue To Decry Ferguson Residents Registering To Vote

Breitbart: “Liberal Activists” Are Promoting Voter Registration Drives That Local GOP Calls “Disgusting.” On August 18, Breitbart quoted the Missouri Republican National Committee executive director who attacked the registration effort as “completely inappropriate” and characterized voting rights advocates’ calls for Ferguson residents to “get on the juries, choose your leaders” as “liberal activism”

[…]

Fox News: Voter Registration Booths In Ferguson Show That “Protestors Aren’t Out There For Free Speech.” On the August 21 edition of Fox & Friends, host Anna Kooiman complained that Ferguson residents protesting the fatal shooting “aren’t out there for freedom of speech. They’re out there to push their side.” Co-host Clayton Morris responded, “Setting up a voter registration booth? Yeah, you think?”

[…]

Rush Limbaugh: Registering Voters In The Wake Of Michael Brown’s Death “Encompasses Everything That The Democratic Party Is.” On his August 19 radio show, Limbaugh also criticized the Ferguson voter registration drive, and condemned Democrats for “try[ing] to ramp up black turnout” by exploiting Brown’s death


Hey Look! Pat Robertson told a lie!

Televangelist Pat Robertson on his “700 Club” show today decided that repeating many right-wing lies about what happened in Ferguson during the shooting death of 18-year old Michael Brown would be a good idea.

Robertson called the unarmed college-bound teen a “giant” and surmised that he must have been on a “hallucegenic” [sic] or “PCP” because he “acted like someone who was crazy” who “beats the daylights out of” officer Darren Wilson. The octogenarian also wondered aloud why the police didn’t “do a blood test on that guy, on the dead man,” whom Robertson couldn’t bother to mention by name.

Robertson also repeated the lie that officer Darren Wilson’s “occipital bone was crushed.”

And he chastised Attorney General Eric Holder for standing up for the oppressed — which is in part his job.

“It just looks bad,” Robertson lamented — not once ever offering one word of sympathy for the death of Michael Brown.

I’m shocked, I tell you! SHOCKED that Pat Robertson displays not compassion for the death of a young unarmed black man.


 

Missouri Councilman Excuses His Racism As Being ‘A Very Active Republican’

 

Says it’s a feature not a bug.




 

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazis supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
