Well... it looks like Ye and the Infowars wing of the GOP are going full Hitler.

(I know it's a tweet but couldn't find any other source)


Fuck Ye, fuck Alex Jones, fuck Nick Fuentes. Fuck 'em all.

Over 1 million people in US have been killed by firearms over past 30 years, data shows

Gun-related deaths in the United States are the highest they have ever been in nearly 30 years, new research shows.

The findings of a new study published in JAMA Network Open on Tuesday show that 1,110,421 people have been killed both intentionally and accidentally by a firearm between 1990 and 2021.

“That is roughly the number of people who have died from COVID in the last couple of years,” said Boston Children’s Hospital doctor Eric Fleegler, one of the authors of the study. 

Findings show that firearm deaths reached a low in 2004 of about 10 for every 100,000 people in the U.S.

But that rate began to climb back up in 2010, eventually increasing by 45.5 percent to 14.7 firearm deaths per 100,000 people in 2021.

The study’s findings show that there was an “incredible leap” in gun-related deaths during the first two years of the pandemic. In 2020 and 2021 there was a 25 percent increase in firearm deaths in the United States, a number that Fleegler said “almost defied imagination.”

Some pretty alarming facts in this article. How many more people have to die before we start calling it a genocide?

New Metallica just dropped!

Sounds a lot like the Metallica I grew up with! Definitely going to catch a show at SoFi when they come here!

I think I have an easy solution to get right wing conspiracy theorists to shut up.

And that solution is: ID check at the door for city council, municipal government (includes voter certification), and school board meetings. You're not a resident? You don't get to participate in the discussion. That's it. That's all it would take. Anyone not from the area looking to start shit? You're shown the door.

This needs to happen now. Especially in Arizona. Over half the people arguing for Kari Lake aren't even from Arizona. I'm tired of playing nice with these shitheads.

Cochise County (Arizona) Board of Supervisors vote to postpone vote certification

In a special session of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors Monday morning, the three-person board voted to postpone certifying the election until the end of the week.

The motion on the floor was to table the certification vote for the remainder of the week—until Friday, Dec. 2. The state canvass of the general election takes place on Monday, Dec. 5.

Supervisor Ann English (D2) was the sole 'no' vote on the board, making the argument against postponing the vote certification further. Supervisors Tom Crosby, (D1) and Peggy Judd (D3) voted for postponing the vote.

Here we go. Fuck you Kari!!!!

And here's newly elected Wyoming Congresswoman Harriet Hageman appearing at an America First Event:


As if we needed any further evidence Liz Cheney's removal was a political hit job. Also, who goes to shit like this?

Can we please stop using the word "breaking" for every minute piece of news that comes out?

Seriously I feel like it's the most overused word in the English language at this point. The only thing that's going to be "breaking" is my monitor when I see another headline with the word "breaking" in it. I wish we could do to the word "breaking" what Lewis Black did to the CNN scroll bar.

Hey Elon, we're not the brainwashed idiots. You are.

Elon said that the New York Times is "far left brainwashing". There's no such thing. He is the brainwashed idiot. He went down the internet conspiracy theory wormhole like so many of the deluded have done over the last 6 years since that guy who we inexplicably called president got elected. You can make that claim all you want but it isn't true. You can't provide any examples of that other than the New York Times or MSNBC, which do that weird thing called "reporting facts" and not "conspiracy theory bullshit".

I can, however, provide thousands of examples of far right brainwashing, and that shit is everywhere. There's Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity, and everyone on Fox News. There's Christian megachurch hate pastors. There's OAN and Newsmax, there's the New York Post and Washington Examiner. There's Sinclair Broadcasting. There's Ben Shapiro, Joe Rogan, Candace Owens, TPUSA, Infowars, hundreds of right wing podcasts and Youtube channels, I could go on and on.

We get what? One hour of Rachel Maddow a night? Shit, let us at least have that. And conservatives think that she's on the same level as Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Bull fucking shit. Right wing propaganda has a stranglehold on like half of the country and those who go down the wormhole aren't coming back any time soon. "Left wing propaganda" as you put it, doesn't split up families or inspire real world violence (like the Paul Pelosi attack or last night's night club shooting) and death threats or encourage people to dip their testes in orange goo to prove their "manliness". That's your side. Either you in the real world, or you live in batshit red pill make believe conspiracy theory fantasy world. I choose to live in the real world. I'm tired of this fucking bullshit.

Moms for Liberty-backed school board members fire superintendent, ban critical race theory

On Tuesday evening, the Berkeley County School District in South Carolina swore in the board members who were elected last week, including six who received endorsements from the conservative activist group Moms for Liberty.

Within two hours, the school board had voted to fire the district’s first Black superintendent, terminate the district’s lawyer, ban critical race theory and set up a new committee to decide whether certain books and materials should be banned from schools.

Additionally, the board voted to replace the existing chair with Mac McQuillin, a local attorney and one of the board members backed by Moms for Liberty.

The rapid moves Tuesday in Berkeley County, the fourth largest school district in the state, showed the impact of Moms for Liberty’s focus on electing conservative school board members, and prompted uproar among some community members in attendance.

This is why I say every election matters. Get these fascist religious Fox addicted assholes out of our school boards. Books should not be banned and thought should not be policed. Moms For Liberty, go fuck yourselves.

The "Give Me That, It's Mine" wing of the GOP already discussing a recall:


Seriously, TP USA is the political equivalent of the child screaming in Target because his parents won't buy him a toy until they cave in and do. Go away, TP USA, the adults are in charge. When we want a bunch of screaming children to run things, we'll call you.
