The never ending news -by Tom Tomorrow

"These are things white people simply do not have to think about."

from facebook:

“I need to drive my two-year-old to daycare tomorrow morning. To ensure we arrive alive, we won’t take public transit (Oscar Grant). I removed all air fresheners from the vehicle and double-checked my registration status (Daunte Wright), and ensured my license plates were visible (Lt. Caron Nazario). I will be careful to follow all traffic rules (Philando Castille), signal every turn (Sandra Bland), keep the radio volume low (Jordan Davis), and won’t stop at a fast food chain for a meal (Rayshard Brooks). I’m too afraid to pray (Rev. Clementa C. Pickney) so I just hope the car won’t break down (Corey Jones).

When my wife picks him up at the end of the day, I’ll remind her not to dance (Elijah McClain), stop to play in a park (Tamir Rice), patronize the local convenience store for snacks (Trayvon Martin), or walk around the neighborhood (Mike Brown). Once they are home, we won’t stand in our backyard (Stephon Clark), eat ice cream on the couch (Botham Jean), or play any video games (Atatiana Jefferson).

After my wife and I tuck him into bed around 7:30pm, neither of us will leave the house to go to Walmart (John Crawford) or to the gym (Tshyrand Oates) or on a jog (Ahmaud Arbery). We won’t even walk to see the birds (Christian Cooper). We’ll just sit and try not to breathe (George Floyd) and not to sleep (Breonna Taylor).”

These are things white people simply do not have to think about.”

Senator Hirino to President Biden: "It's so nice that you're not crazy."

Sen. Mazie Hirono on her recent meeting with President Biden:

RT: You met with President Biden and Vice-President Harris on Thursday along with other members of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.

MH: We had a lovely meeting. At one point, after some of the others left and we were talking about a few things, I said to the president, “It’s so nice that you’re not crazy.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene is scrapping the planned launch of her "America First" caucus

(CNN)Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is scrapping the planned launch of her "America First" caucus after receiving blowback from leaders in her own party, despite confirming through a spokesperson on Friday that the caucus would launch.

Nick Dyer, Greene's spokesperson, told CNN in an email on Saturday afternoon the Georgia Republican is not "launching anything."

"The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved," he said in an email to CNN, referring to a flier promoting the caucus, obtained by Punchbowl News, that used inflammatory rhetoric.

He added that "she didn't approve that language and has no plans to launch anything."

That about sums it up.

Sad, sick-o little men, disturbed little boys in grown-up bodies, suffering from deep-seated self-esteem issues, playing tacticool camo cosplay and waving about hunting rifles tarted up as pretend military weapons so they can imagine they are big, tough manly-man soldiers, hunting down insurgents in Kabul while being safely at home, protected by their white privilege, as they fantasize about mowing down strangers in a strip mall or daycare center or church for not giving them the unearned social dominance to which they believe they are entitled by their white skin and their dicks. Eager tools for the enemies of America who tell them comfortable lies they yearn to believe against all prevailing evidence as they plan the mass-murder of police while wearing “blue lives matter” tee shirts. Murderous sociopathic, anti-American thugs who see guns as a phallic pacifier for their wet-toilet-paper-fragile egos, and the mass killings of children and women as their most fervent expression of a toxic, perverted, evil, and utterly fraudulent ideal of masculinity.

"I hope we all realize this."

Shut the Fuck Up and Get Your Fucking Vaccine

4/15/2021
RUDE PUNDIT:

..............

Here in the United States, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines, we're swimming in a shit pool of lies and fear. We've got the dumbass white evangelical Christians who believe garbage like "It would be God’s will if I am here or if I am not here." (So, like, if God gave people the ability to create vaccines...fuck it, not worth it.) We've got fucking idiotic conspiracy theories like "A massive death wave will be witnessed later this year among those who took the vaccine," ignoring that it's been a year since the first people were vaccinated, and, oddly, no reports of all of them dying have come out.

And then there's motherfucking Tucker fucking Carlson, who always has the expression of a Victorian gentleman learning that women like sex. Carlson has been coyly and not-so-coyly antivax for the better part of the last few years. With the coronavirus vaccines, Tuckfuck has been vigorously gargling the balls of conspiracy nuts. Wondering why you should still have to wear a mask after getting vaccinated, Carlson's just asking, "What is this about? If vaccines work, why are vaccinated people still banned from living normal lives?" Quite note: You're wearing your fucking mask because you still might be able to spread COVID, even if you can't get it, and you're trying not to be a selfish dickhead, something I'm sure Carlson can't even conceive of.

Carlson, who you know got his vaccine the second he could steal the spot from an elderly person, continued tuckerly, "If the vaccine is effective, there’s no reason for people who’ve received a vaccine to wear masks or avoid physical contact. So maybe it doesn’t work and they’re simply not telling you that. Well, you’d hate to think that especially if you’ve gotten two shots but what’s the other potential explanation? We can’t think of one." Yes, big science wants you to wear masks and not eat indoors at restaurants or go to concerts or movies because...he doesn't say, but I'm guessing socialism or critical race theory or AOC.

.....................

You know what freedom is? Freedom is celebrating that science can actually solve our fucking problems and taking advantage of that so that your superstition and anti-science fuckery doesn't kill the rest of us.

Shut the fuck up already. Get your fucking vaccine, you fucking assholes.
