They said it on Breitbart

 

Something a little different today, a peek inside the soul of the Trump movement, although “soul” perhaps isn’t the right word. More like the lunatic asylum.

The hatred and anger on Breitbart never cease to amaze me. At the risk of making you puke, here are some samples from yesterday—Independence Day! The context of these posts doesn’t matter—it’s the content by which you can judge the mental state of the writers. I repeat each comment as it was posted, errors and all. After each post, I offer a comment. The names, by the way, are real: when someone posts on social media, they’re on the public record and thus fair game.

Stephanie Powell Dallas’ mayor Mike Rawlings removed a statue that had been there since the 1930’s, in the middle of the night, without voter input, at a cost of over $700,000.00 of tax payer money. DALLAS IS THE NEXT SHITHOLE LIKE VENEZUELA!!!! DEMOCRATS PISS ON EVERYTHING IN THEIR PATH!!!!!!!

My comment: Don’t you love the dirty words? These rightwingers are obsessed with bodily functions and excretions. When good old Stephanie complains about Dallas, do you think she’s objecting to the white people who live there? I think not. It’s people of color she (and white nationalists like her) hate.

Leo Gimignani Why Scarlett Johansson? I would more likely believe someone like Rosie Odonnell who already looks like a beast!

My comment: The insult to Rosie O’Donnell, a good woman, is obvious. Makes me wonder if Leo himself isn’t carrying a few extra pounds…or his wife…or his mother…or his daughter. But that’s Republicans for you: insults, smears, bullying. Just like their obese president.

Red Filipp Thoughts of a Veteran…….. then by all means pack your bags and leave , many great men have gave their lives for you and this Fine Nation so you can sit and bitch . But this Veteran has had enough of everyone whining and crying if you do not love it simple take Your ass to Another country that you think suits your way of life and sissy feeling

My comment: Thanks for your service, “Red,” if that’s your real name…and if you really did serve. But true servicemen don’t rant about taking your ass to another country. They understand that America is big enough for us all (even you). As for “the sissy feeling,” these rightwingers are also obsessed with homosexuality. I wonder if “Red” isn’t a closet case. Usually these homophobes are.

Michael Blume Boy Scouts of America? Huh? I believe that organization is no longer in existence. Didn’t it become Unisex Scouts , or Youth Scouts, Young Scouts, The New Order of Scouts, or something along those lines? The accused, if found guilty, should get 9mm to the head sentencing.

 

My comment: In this category of violent homophobia we must place Michael Blume. His hatred of gay people is bad enough, but he also is apparently obsessed with summary justice, guns and vigilantism, and shooting people through the head. Just another NRA ammosexual spouting his murderous impulses.

Lois Petrek You still have all black colleges. If you had an all white college the government would be up in arms. You have NAACP, BET all black groups.

My comment: Uh oh, Lois, your racism is showing. How do you accessorize those white sheets for your KKK rallies

Nicole Takahashi I have been to Boise, Idaho, and it breaks my heart to see an all-American town become another Somalia like Minneapolis. Democrats are hell-bent upon destroying the culture that made America great.

My comment: I must assume that Nicole is either Japanese-American or is married to a Japanese-American. Do I really need to remind her that Japanese-Americans were rounded up and interned during World War II because white people hated and feared them? It’s so ironic when a person who has suffered from racism turns out to be a racist!

Vernon Baugh go after the dems,, start arresting them ,,, start using your power, to its fullest,,, fire any and all dems you can,,, clean house, pass some laws,,, etc

My comment: What a sweet thought from Vernon! Arrest Democrats. Fire them from their jobs. Clean house. Maybe ole Vern can personally kill them. Would you like that, Vern? Then you can throw the bodies into the ovens and give the MAGA salute. Don’t forget to get the gold out of their teeth.

And finally, this:

Gene Cease Just as long as we keep the liberal, thumb sucking, fetal postion laying, safe space seeking, RADICAL, MILITANT, Antifa loving, snow flake from sucking the LIFE out of this country*****

My comment: Reading through these Breitbart comments, I often suspect they’re fake posts from Russian bots and operatives who continue to try and undermine our country. No real Americans could possibly post this crap. Could they?

Breitbart goes ballistic on Guns, Facebook, U2…and Bangladeshis!

 

If you want to know what the Republican Party is obsessing on, on any given day, just go to Breitbart. There, you’ll find all the latest grievances, spelled out in excruciatingly paranoid rage.

From yesterday, here are some top headlines.

STORY #1

Facebook Creating Global Jihadist Networks, Experts Claim

Yes, the social media giant is actively working with “terrorist supporters in 96 countries [to] create a system which helps connect extremists and terrorists.”

Who are the “experts” cited in the headline? An outfit called the “Counter Extremism Project,” a neo-conservative American group whose founders include Joe Lieberman and George W. Bush’s U.N. ambassador, Mark Wallace.

Let us posit that among Facebook’s two billion users there are extremists communicating with each other. But these extremists aren’t merely of the radical Islamic variety; Breitbart itself publishes on a Facebook platform, so one could just as easily have headlined, “Facebook Creating Global white supremacist and neo-nazi hate groups.”

See the irony? But the Right never does. Without a sense of humor, they’re incapable of understanding that they have become parodies of themselves.

STORY #2

Oklahoma Senate Concurs with House: 2nd Amendment is Your Carry Permit

Pretty straightforward story: Oklahoma, in many respects the most backward State in the country, is about to abolish all requirements for open carry, because “the second amendment protects a constitutional right to bear arms.” The new law evidently means that Oklahomans are allowed to open-carry AR-15s and other weapons of mass killing. They call Oklahoma “the Sooner State”; as for me, I’d sooner stay away from it than visit a place where armed, angry white yahoos are playing vigilante games and running around with stuffed holsters–with the state’s encouragement.

STORY #3

Border Patrol Agents Arrest 15 More Bangadeshi Nationals in South Texas

This story is designed to prove to skeptics that it’s not just criminal, rapist Mexicans whom Breitbart readers hate, it’s Bangaladeshis! Yes, those brown bad boys apparently are wreaking havoc along the border, but fortunately, “Border Patrol officials attending the National Rifle Association Annual Meeting in Dallas told Breitbart [they have] arrested…Bangadeshi nationals…for illegal entry.”

Good to know that Laredo no longer has a Bangladeshi terrorist problem! Now they’re going to have to go after those Nepalese thugs.

STORY #4

Christian Fans ‘Devastated’ with U2 For Backing Abortion in Ireland

It’s a sad day for Bono and the boys in the band. They came out in support of a woman’s right to choose in Ireland, and next thing you know, they were hit by “a barrage of more than 800 negative replies.”

I give U2 credit for declaring their beliefs even though they know some of their fans will be pissed off. That’s the way things work. I’d rather have my artists stand for something, instead of hiding behind a milquetoast demeanor and not standing for anything. I’ll give Kanye West some credit, too. I think he’s a fool to be sucking up to Trump, an out-and-out racist whose father was in the KKK. But that’s his right. I’m sure that U2 will still sell out every concert they give, and as for the women of Ireland, good for you! Abortion is a matter to be decided between a woman and her doctors (with perhaps the husband involved as well). When I was a little boy, I remember well the teenaged girls from our neighborhood who “went on vacation” for a week or so, to Mexico or Puerto Rico. These weren’t real vacations; they went to get abortions. And they were the ones who could afford to travel. Other girls weren’t so lucky; they ended up in alleys or basements with knitting needles shoved inside themselves, and often died. Republicans would love to go back to that era, but we’re not going to let them. As for those poor, devastated Christians, there’s plenty of really bad Christian rock around.

Anyhow, there it is, the news according to Breitbart. Aren’t you glad I tell you about it, so you don’t have to degrade yourself by going there?

Meanwhile, the angrier Trump gets with the Mueller investigation–and his rage meter is exploding–the more you know he has something to hide. If he were innocent, he’d cooperate 100% and get the thing over with. The fact that he’s fighting like an angry bull—and has ordered his minions to fight alongside him—can mean only one thing: There are some very, very serious crimes he’s trying to cover up. We mustn’t let him. Please do whatever you can to protect Mueller, and be prepared to scream your head off and take it to the streets if Trump tries some dumb stunt, like firing Rosenstein.
