What is wrong with these people? :cry:

This pic needs more dildos.
I could be wrong, but I see 5 of them in the picture.
That's why I said "more".
I can only hope someone decides to give this picture the special treatment they gave Massie and posts it for everybody to enjoy!
If they're old enough to play with guns they are surely old enough to play with dildos

What are odds on one of those little blighters growing up to be a mass shooter. I mean, they're extremely small right, but probably 0.001% instead of the 0.00000000001% it should be.
At least one of them will reach eighteen and absolutely despising his mother. You can be assured that her parenting bounces from tyrannical (when she wants something) to complete neglect (when they want something).
I would be ever so slightly encouraged by that tbh, as long as they ended up despising her for the right reasons, ie because she is objectively and irredeemably despicable.

Also gotta be hard to have a really hot mom.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Another Brooks essay on the mutation of American conservatism. There does, kinda sorta, seem to be an awareness that the conservatism that inspired him and he identifies with spawned what he hates, but the piece is akin to Leftists who confidently declare that what Russia or East Germany or Vietnam or China or Cuba or … isn't Communism. Sure, it isn't the abstracted predictions or assumptions, but this is what happened and you have to consider the possibility that that's a feature not a bug in Marxist politics. The ideas that Brooks waxes on about are often appealing, as ideas unconnected to practice and experience often are. Yet the neoliberalism that motivated the post-Goldwater right has ended up with fascism. Maybe those ideas don't properly capture human experience and need any better than the various theories of the left. I'll give Brooks credit for seeking to be a public intellectual on this (especially when the right has all-but-rejected intellectual discourse), but he's not willing to employ the same critique that the right throws at the left. Plenty of leftists eventually came to grips with their beliefs versus the reality of Communist states, but Brooks is still in thrall of "but that's not real conservatism."

Weird how white right-wingers get all pissy about things like Kwanzaa and Juneteenth. :hmm:

And neither of them is a religion, but apparently MTG doesn't even know the difference, but is very outspoken to denounce Kwanzaa.

As a white guy I usually dont bring it up but Ron Karenga (founder of Kwanzaa) was basically an FBI informant/stooge in the cointelpro ops against the Black Panthers. Read up its an interesting subject.

I too had read something about all that. But overall, the idea behind the celebration is a good thing, but the guy that thought it up seems to have some history.

All pretty new to me, very interesting. I note that Kwanzaa means "first fruits" in Swahili. I just love that language.

We can laugh and mock, but it speaks to a rejection of fundamental democratic principles that are becoming dogma on the right.
