Nazis, or as Pumpkin has called them, “very fine people.”  On the other hand, the 1933-45 German version probably did indeed have Germany’s interests at heart, even while going about it very badly from every point of view.  They were certainly not trying to sell it out to Russia or any other foreign power.

Rick Wilson (no friend of Pumpkin, to be sure), says in this Newsweek piece that the cruelty of the “zero tolerance” immigration edicts and stripping babies from their mothers plays well on TV, revving up their base of shitty, shitty people.

And their core supporters want anybody who’s darker than a latte deported. They’re not happy about immigration of any kind. They don’t believe in the asylum process. They want to take and separate these families as a matter of deterrence and as a sort of theater of cruelty. I think it really doesn’t speak well to their moral standing.

Everyone darker than a latte!  What do you want to bet that will also mean Jews and LGBTQ+ people before this is over?

That last sentence, by the way, is Wilson’s entry in the Understatement Olympics.

 

Descent Into Fascism

This cartoon tells the story of Rob Rogers of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  He was the editorial cartoonist with a left-of-center viewpoint.  Then the publisher decided he had to go because of insufficiently licking the boots of Cheeto Benito.

Print media is not exactly a nascent growth industry, and I doubt that moves like this are going to improve its business prospects.

No, this is just more angry old white men who figure to die soon, and they are determined to bring us all down with them.   The entire Pumpkin administration is a suicide vest the Faux News crowd and the neo-Nazis have fastened around the entire world, and they are fixing to push the button.

Happy Independence Day, by the way.  We had a good run!

 

It’s Wearing on Me

I find myself feeling a deep dislike for all supporters of our flat-out fascist Federal regime now.  These are people I want nothing to do with anymore.  Financially-privileged white suburbanites.  Rural #MAGAs.  The entire states of Indiana, South Dakota and any of those that ever styled themselves part of the CSA.

I don’t want to use the word “hate” for what I feel, but it’s functionally indistinguishable.  I have reached the point where I do not find it useful or even possible to make a distinction between a “person who supports a policy like that” and the policy itself.  Empathy for such people is beyond my reach.  And I don’t even feel motivated to try.


As for the people of color, the queer, the women, the disabled and the immigrants who are trapped geographically in amongst all that human fungus around them… I want to work now on shielding them from the worst of it and on rescuing them from it where possible.

Concentration Camps

My brother voted for this.

Kids being stripped from their parents and put in camps.

He once joked to me that he would not buy a Mercedes because, and I quote, he “could not own a car where he might be related to the seat-covers.”  Haha.  Many of us have family members who just as inexplicably supported this fascist.

NB: not even Hitler got from taking power to camps in under 18 months.

Roseanne Self-Destructs

I was grudgingly impressed that her apology – aside from using the “joke” excuse – was close to an actual apology.  She must have known she’d pretty well screwed the pooch.

Of course, you have to wonder about ABC’s judgment in the first place, for engaging with this:
