It’s been a week.
#Caturday is a welcome respite.
It’s been a week.
So it turns out that the latest apocalyptic wildfire was started (in part) by an explosive device used to effect the reveal at one of those idiotic “gender reveal” parties that people hold to wrap mystery around the coming baby’s genitals.
Gender has so many meanings, and determinants. So few of them have to do with genital anatomy. And these parties are ridiculously over-the-top and getting worse.
For a little perspective — this is not the first such party to start a major wildfire.
JUST STOP, ALREADY!
…ist die schönste Freude
There’s probably a critical mass of people in a nation who can tip the entire polity over to fascism by their tacit or vocal support for the Pumpkin’s racism. I hope it’s more than 40%. I don’t think it is. But I still hope it is.
Support for his racism also excuses every other crime, leading to the situation you see here. By the way, I consider this comic to be literally true, although he has selected other (more efficient) methods for killing Americans than going around unplugging respirators one by one. He could never have gotten to 200,000 otherwise.
Mark my words, gas chambers are not as far behind as you’d like to think.
Shava Nerad, an Internet organizer and a founder of the TOR Project, has posted a very grim outlook on the probable aftermath of the US election. In my estimation, she’s not overly pessimistic. I think it’s a safe bet Pumpkin and his band of evildoers will try to leverage every mechanism they can think of to prevent the lawful accession of Joe Biden to the presidency. If they can’t manage to steal the election they will try to ignore it.
We won’t be out of this crisis until President Biden gets to work on Jan 21.
