I had no idea where to post this, so I figured, I need a thread for the random bits of moonbat insanity that is, apparently, normal and acceptable now that they lost an election...



This will make her beloved and people will say things like "It's just a symbolic, but bold and courageous statement" and stuff like that.

You know...the same kind of thing that they would say if that was Obama's head in the picture.......right?

Lest we forget...

Hmmm...like the confederate flag?
:coffee:

Add Madonna saying she's thought about blowing up the white house. I guess all the energy she saved not blowing Hillary voters as she promised has to go somewhere. ROFL

She's getting tons of backlash over is from both sides but yeah, if a conservative would have done something like this when Obama was in office, this country would have burned.

Kathy apologized, and I believe it was sincere.

It still begs the question, though, about why she thought it would be OK. Also, I think that, in the long run, this will help her career. She'll get lots of exposure on talk shows and sympathetic news networks, with some behind the scenes wink and a nod at places like CNN.

Really, I wonder what mechanism is broken that doesn't stop her and others from doing stuff like this in the first place. It is really hard for me to imagine a conservative holding up the bloody head of Obama and thinking that was OK. There is a huge disconnect there that I can't exactly put my finger on, but I do think that, like the Berkeley riots, it tells us a lot about why socialist countries tend to develop violent and oppressive governments. There is something in the core mindset that says "We are morally superior, so it is OK to do violence on the morally inferior, it is OK to punch a Nazi in the face."

I think this is how you get Stalin's gulag list, China's cultural cleansing, and Cambodia's killing fields. Something in the core psyche of socialists justifies it.

It's a combination of identity politics and class guilt. That's how it started in the Soviet Union at least.

A workmate of mine jsut said something that I find is probably true...

If it were a right winger with Obama's head, the whole country would be shut down right now, with nationwide riots going on, fires being lit, and people being assaulted and possibly killed.

Griffen acted like a really dumb covfefe and deserves her backlash

Squatty Potty, a line of footstools for toilets, said Tuesday it was "shocked and disappointed" and was pulling a new ad campaign starring Griffin.

"It was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for," Squatty Potty chief executive officer Bobby Edwards said in a statement. "We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance."

...pretty sure this deserves an emote, but I'm not even sure there is one appropriate for this.

Gutfeld...“If we get mad, [Griffin] wins.” Typical.

I actually agree on some level. Kathy Griffin isn't worth attention.

True, On some levels.

But I can't shake Edmund Burke:

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

I think the Oppressor/Oppressed idea I expressed here is as good an explanation as any.

Trump is a white, rich, male, heterosexual, cis-gendered, non left of center individual.

That hits the check box for every "oppressor" category there is.

As an "oppressor", then he's fair game for anything.

At the same time, she would think Obama is "oppressed" because he's black and so it's inappropriate to target him in this fashion. Anyone who did so is obviously motivated by racism.

I'm sure there are some right of center people who could have targeted in a similar fashion, and if they had, the cries of racism would have been heard.

I'm also sure that there are plenty right of center people who understand that such cries of racism would be made and so would avoid doing this.

Again, to be clear, I am not commenting on how appropriate the "oppressor/oppressed" perspective is or is not. Since I'm suggesting that it simply defines if you are liberal or if you are conservative.

Liberals do believe in it, conservatives do not.

Secret Service disagrees.
Those poor bastards. They'll all end up alcoholics by the time this is over.

Choosing to ignore her is still action.

Look, you have a D-list "celebrity" begging for attention by pandering to the mob. Her goal here isn't to harm the president or enact social change or anything other than get people to pay attention to her.

By choosing to ignore her, I am thwarting her plans.

It's like training a dog or young child. If you give them what they want when they misbehave, then they will continue to misbehave.
