'Karen' Halloween Masks Spark Outrage...and High Demand

Via CBR:

Artist Jason Adcock has crafted a painted latex mask bearing the caricature of a white, angry middle-aged woman, replete with the signature blonde Karen hairstyle. The face is a grotesque exaggeration of a stereotypical "Karen," a deprecatory name commonly given to an unreasonably demanding woman considered to be privileged or entitled.


The artist also says he's received no shortage of irate comments, from complainants ironically asking to speak to his manager.

Adcock has also made an even more disturbing, pustule-infested "KAREN-19" variant of the mask. "She thought she was slick calling you all sheep and look what happened," Adcock joked on another Instagram post.

I dunno, looks like Kellyanne Kryptkeeper Konway to me.

FBI Involved After Antimasker QAnon Loony Threatens Teachers


“She kept saying that she was going to make sure we never worked again, and that everyone knew what sickos we were and that she had her arsenal ready and that she was basically going to get rid of us at any cost,” said Allen.

The Hillsborough County Classroom Teachers Association says the same woman made threatening posts on their Facebook page and they finally blocked her.

“She was accusing the whole union, all teachers of being pedophiles,” said Stephanie Baxter-Jenkins the Executive director of the HCTA.

When contacted by a reporter, (Elena Luyo of Tampa) strongly denied making any threats but does admit she used strong language in her Facebook posts.

Luyo claims it all started when several teachers used false names and invaded a private Facebook group that she is a member of. The Facebook group opposes wearing masks.

“There is no science backing it up. They represent a collective communist society. It’s a representation of China. I mean the masks come from China,” said Luyo who added, “They admitted in their member only group that they snuck into our group like dirty little weasels.”

Where does your MAGA cap come from, Loopy?

“I started calling them pedo-marxists. In my opinion, if you are sneaking into a Facebook group on social media, what are you doing behind closed doors, where no other parent can see what’s going on,” said Luyo.

She justifies her Facebook posts and the messages she sent because Luyo says she felt threatened by the teachers.

“At that point, I don’t really care what I called you know what I’m saying. You violated me, you violated people I don’t even know, so at that point you could be anything, maybe you’re not a pedo,” said Luyo.

Luyo says she looked up some of the teachers online and they just looked like pedophiles.

“Looking at the profiles of these teachers that were sneaking into our group, they looked very questionable, they looked disturbing,” said Luyo.

Allen and the HCTA say they’ve reported the online threats to the FBI.

Police Body Cams? Li'l Don-Don, Healthy Stable Genius, Chokes Trying To Form An Opinion

Should be a snap, right? Not for Your Favorite President! He had to ask Daddy! Very good people on both sides! Via RawStory:

President Donald Trump on Tuesday struggled to answer a question about police body cameras at an event in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

While attending a round table in support of law enforcement, the president was asked if he favored the use of body cameras.

“Um, body cam,” the president said, searching for an answer. “Ah, whew. Well, that’s, uh, very interesting.”

At that point the commander-in-chief turned the question over to Attorney General Bill Barr, who offered a favorable opinion of the technology.

“It’s very tough,” Trump said, adding to Barr’s answer. “The whole thing, you read it and you read two sides of the story.”

Several local law enforcement officers also told Trump that they are in favor of officers wearing body cameras.

“Okay, good, they like ’em,” Trump announced to the press.
