Cautionary tale, not funny., Opinion


“Good, the peasants are at each other’s throats. We have to keep them that angry. Keep their stupid minds occupied with a red-hot hatred while we do whatever we want. The Jews, and the niggers, the spics and the chinks are going to take their jobs. Take their livelihoods from them. Their wives and children will be out on the street. Of course, Jews will replace them. And the darkies will too. We have to keep pounding them with the fact that the chinks caused Covid. And the spics are all criminals. I gotta call Tucker later.” 

Does Donald Trump have dementia? We need to know: Psychologist

“Yeah, I’m dumb…I got away with over 2 billion in four years. And Biden’s gettin’ the blame for inflation? I’m in. I even got away with causing it. And it’s got all the peasants screaming. I am in. And, Vlad, baby, you couldn’t’ve timed Ukraine any better.” 

Marjorie Taylor Greene will remain on the ballot in Georgia

“Now they’re fightin’ over baby formula too…couldn’t have happened at a better time as far as I’m concerned. Covid’s comin’ back too. Perfect. Too bad we can’t pardon that terrific kid, that would make ’em really cra—Hey, wait a sec…it’s a fact that this supermarket shooting was a Jew Democrat set-up. This kid was a leftie plant…so we true patriots would take the fall for it. I can’t wait to speak with Tucker. He’ll run with it.”

Who Is Madison Cawthorn Of North Carolina? : NPR

“I can snort all the coke I want, and these jerks’ll still vote for me as long as I keep screaming “America first.” Bunch of morons. Bringing that loaded gun through security at the Charlotte airport was a stroke of genius man. Every gun nut in North Carolina is mine. Mine! Hey, me and Tucker on Russian TV really got the Libtards crazy. Tucker, my man you are the best!” 

House Democrats move to censure GOP Rep. Paul Gosar over violent video

“I need another bump. I should post another video of me killing that AOC twat https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/nov/18/paul-gosar-retweets-video-aoc-twitter. Maybe I should make one of me machine-gunning that towelhead Ilhan Omar. Even better, do her whole Allah-loving family. That’ll give MAGA Nation a real laugh, and it’ll twist the pansy Lib’s minds outta shape. Tucker would play it on a loop!”


Yeah…we gotta keep everyone’s mind on anything except how we’re being taken for fools by people whose only interest is power – and fuck the rest of us “peasants.”

    • Peggy, let us now hope that the Ignorant Party nominates the most ill-suited, certain to be incompetent, most stupid people that are running…Like Oz, et al. Maybe even some Republicans will take the blindfold off, awaken from their stupor, and refuse to support such trash. Maybe. thanks and continue…

  2. It’s hard to believe that these people are so stupid they have no idea they are being played for complete chumps. I just wish they didn’t have to take the rest of us down with them.

    • It’s all part of the Republican long con. Steadily rip away at education, gin up the fear of anyone “different” who’s “obviously” to blame for your quality of life – or lack thereof, shred the social safety net, and most importantly, keep guns, and especially assault weapons, on the street. The right-wing’s formula for staying in power, and stealing our taxes while we all rot. Transparent and very sad. Thanks, Liz, and stay well. continue…

      • I remember from reading Mein Kamph in college that this is exactly what Hitler did: “gin up the fear of anyone ‘different’ who’s ‘obviously’ to blame for your quality of life – or lack thereof.”

      • The following is from Benjamin Kentish in The Independent:
        “Donald Trump reportedly owned a copy of Adolf Hitler’s speeches and kept them in his bedside cabinet.

        A 1990 Vanity Fair article about billionaire businessman stated that Mr. Trump’s then wife Ivana, said her husband owned a copy of “My New Order” – a printed collection of the Nazi leader’s speeches. In a 1990 interview, the billionaire businessman admitted to owning Nazi leader’s ‘Mein Kampf’ but said he had would never read speeches

        Marie Brenner, the article’s author, wrote: “Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, ‘My New Order’, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed.”

        Liz, i trust you are not surprised by this. Thanks, and continue…
