Hehehe
Right wing troll loses pretty much everything....

1066, Hitler, the Corn Laws... Why are Brexiteers the basic bitches of history?

Why are top Brexiteers’ references to history always so… basic?

Boris Johnson, writing in his Telegraph column today, referred to 1066 – surely the cheapest novelty mug in the giftshop of English history.

“If Chequers were adopted it would mean that for the first time since 1066,” he writes, “our leaders were deliberately acquiescing in foreign rule.”

This is, of course, wrong.
-------------
The main problem is the sheer basicness of the reference. Why do these Brexiteers only ever have sub-GCSE historical references to wheel out? Less than three months ago, as another example, Jacob Rees-Mogg was warning Theresa May that reneging on her Brexit promise would lead to the same fate of Conservative prime minister Robert Peel when he repealed the Corn Laws in 1846.

This was also wrong. History absolved Peel’s decision to put country above party – something Rees-Mogg and other Corn Law-warning Brexiteers appear to have overlooked.

"One Sexual Predator on the SCOTUS is Enough" Sign on LA Freeway



That sign was done by @thorbites and I just wanted to share it with y’all because it’s so good.

Please note the way it’s posted in between the cyclone fencing and the railing. We call these toaster drops because they’re so easy to post on: just drop your sign in! Almost as if it was MADE for that sort of thing. Speaking of which, did you know the First Amendment protects the use of public property for the purposes of expressing your political opinion — it too seems practically tailored for the times we’re living in now.

Trump's insults against his 'hillbilly' base are making them turn on him: NYT column

New polls show that Donald Trump’s base is beginning to turn against him — and it may be related to his continual insults on their intelligence.

“A raft of new polls show that some of the most hard-core Trumpsters are starting to get a clue,” nonfiction author Timothy Eagen wrote in a New York Times op-ed published Friday, adding that the revelation is akin to “discovering that climate change is not a hoax when your town is under water, and all your commander in chief can do is throw you a roll of paper towels.”

----------

The proof, Eagen noted, is in the polls.

He noted that according to a Quinnipiac poll released this week, a plurality of “non-college-educated whites” wish Congress would rein Trump in. He’s also “down 14 points among the ‘poorly educated’” per a CNN poll, the writer noted.

The NRA put 'Thomas the Tank Engine' in white KKK hood to protest new diverse cast

The National Rifle Association is renowned for its brash and strange social media tactics, but this latest move might be its strangest - and most offensive - yet.

Viewers of the gun rights group’s online video channel “Relentless” saw spokeswoman Dana Loesch taking Thomas the Tank Engine to task for daring to diversify its cast. Yes, really.

Responding to news that the children’s show was adding several female and international characters, she said:

They’ve decided that the next stop is Virtue Town.

The segment echoed complaints by some that the additions amounted to "politically correctness" gone mad. But it also perplexed others who wondered why the NRA is getting involved in such an obscure topic.




Even more bizarrely, the segment then showed an image of the trains from the show dressed up in KKK hoods. Mocking the diversification, Loesch said sarcastically:

Fair, I get it. Thomas the Tank Engine has been a blight on race relations for far too long.

MAGA by attacking Thomas the frigging Tank Engine?!?!?! You really cannot make this shit up
On the bright side at least the NRA are showing their true colours and not even trying to hide being racist wankers anymore

Hehehehe/Eeeeewwwww



That sums up a picture which is not easy to eradicate from brain...
