Fear of a Barack Planet

No Words

Howard U class of 2018

What the fuck to say other than a gutteral scream while clutching the nearest furry dog/cat/rabbit while searching for the nearest bong or bottle of vodka or Jane Austen novel?

So many things to say or think. Hard to prioritize the outrage. Where to start?  The ongoing open season on black and brown people, the hypocrisy of law enforcement who chuckle at a bunch of white wing-nuts making up for their small penises with big guns at the the Starbucks but have their sniper guns pointed at the heads of protesters with their hands in the air, the horrifying militarization of Barney Fifes of rural ‘Merikah with surplus weapons-grade body armor/machine guns/tanks, or the beatings and arrests of citizens just trying to get home or reporters trying to document the siege of the civilians.

Pay attention to what is happening in Ferguson, Missouri. The media has been banned, there is a no fly zone over the city. The police killed an unarmed black teenager and the protesters are surrounded by military grade police force with armored vehicles, assault weapons and tear gas.

Brought to you by the Patriot Act and post-9/11 hysteria.

I’m waiting for the NRA to get in there and tell these people they have the right to arm themselves against aggressive government action.

Oh. Wait.

For Whom the Bellwether Tolls

Mitch McConnell, 2010:

The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

John Boehner, 2013:

So we’re expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the Republican Party.

And let me just tell you, I do believe that is their goal — to just shove us into the dustbin of history.

Republicans are adorable when they’re scared shitless.

Don’t Go Changing, Bubba

God love Bill. Some things never change.

Dinesh D’Souza on his Obama Derangement Fantasia being snubbed: “I want to thank the Academy for not nominating our film. By ignoring 2016, the top-performing box-office hit of 2012, and pretending that films like Searching for Sugar Man and This Is Not a Film are more deserving of an Oscar, our friends in Hollywood have removed any doubt average Americans may have had that liberal political ideology, not excellence, is the true standard of what receives awards.” [Hollywood Reporter]

Happy New Black Panther Day!

It wouldn’t be an election day without Fox News fear-mongering race-baiting expressing concern over darkies standing guard potential voter intimidation in Philly.
