Deplorables got years worth of outrage. Yet here a candidate for President is calling Dems "savage animals" and the media doesn't care.

naturally, she made t-shirts. they were a perk in the last election and she sold out in about a day, iirc.
i’m so proud of her. she was the point person on both weed and marriage here in il.
she is a lightening rod for the right, and she just channels that shit right back at them.

count me in the savage animal brigade, too.

Inherited that from my mom.

Her dad once got beat up by the cops for protesting the internment of his Japanese friends and neighbors.

My mom's mom was a fucking crazy bitch Berserker women many men feared. I feared her too. She was a welder in World War II and one of the very few women who kept her Rosie the Riveter job when the war ended. (My first serious girlfriend was sort of like that too.)

My dad's a related clan, but without all the blood and gore.

If I'd been more like him I'd have less scars.

Savages, all savages...
