So, are the Republicans having some sort of competition?
So, are the Republicans having some sort of competition?
#1
Steve King defending not allowing exceptions for abortions in the case of rape and incest: What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?

Ben Shapiro: Poverty is poor peoples fault for taking jobs that don't pay enough.

Everything they've said about the statue of liberty this week.

I mean, there's being horrible people with no sense of decency, compassion or basic morals, but when did it become a fucking competition?

I think they feel confident in saying the quiet parts out loud because they don’t fear any kind of backlash or paying a price for it.

They may be right in the short run.

I doubt it, in the long run.

The Republicans have no reason not to say such things out loud. In fact, there's evidence that saying such things out loud works in their favour: Trump said similar things in 2015-2016 and was elected President.

People who don't like it should know what needs to be done in November 2020: show them the error of their ways the only way that they pay attention to.

A simple extension of the Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine.

EDIT: But, no, Greenland is not for sale.

But it's already been made clear the U.S. IS for sale.  Therefore ... Denmark Offers to Buy U.S.
Quote:“We believe that by giving the U.S. an educational system and national health care, it could be transformed from a vast land mass into a great nation,” the spokesperson said.

The GOP strategy with regards to mass shootings by white supremacists.

https://www.tampabay.com/florida-politic...lame-left/

Quote:"But it (the advice on dealing with questions about why they don't do anything about gun control) also included this question: “Do you believe white nationalism is driving more mass shootings recently?” The suggested response is to steer the conversation away from white nationalism to an argument that implies both sides are to blame.

“White nationalism and racism are pure evil and cannot be tolerated in any form," the document said. “We also can’t excuse violence from the left such as the El Paso shooter, the recent Colorado shooters, the Congressional baseball shooter, Congresswoman Giffords’ shooter and Antifa.""

Steve King says the media owe him an apology.  
Quote:“And so, when we have a national, viral attack that comes out on a misquote, and it’s absolutely proven, all the folks that did that attack, I think they owe me an apology, including my own leadership,” King added.

The Des Moines Register did correct another quote it ran on King’s remarks. But the part about rape and incest was reported accurately. The newspaper also published video of King’s remarks, which he made last week at an event at the Westside Conservative Club in Urbandale, Iowa.

One reader mentioned this apropos of nothing in comments on an unrelated article, saying:

Quote:Steve King (R-IA) says that the video of his comments is misquoting him.

Oh, for FSM's sake!

No doubt the video was "touched by His Noodly Appendage."

OMFG.

He seriously fucking went THERE!?

That's it, folks. Game over. We now have the motherfucking Anti-Christ on our hands here.
Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

His orangeness also cancelled his trip to Denmark because they refused to sell Greenland.

The way it's being reported in Canada, he dropped the appointment in a snit because they were giving his idea the respect it deserved instead of the respect he thought was his due. You can't treat him that way, he's an American!

I only lament that I will not be able to say “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” when he landed.

No, he's not just an American; in his mind, such as it is, he is America, the way royalty used to be able to say, "I am France" or "the Netherlands," or wherever.  Like the Pope making a decree ex cathedra.  So the Danish PM insulted the entire U.S.A.  In what passes for Windrip's mind.
Quote:“Don’t say, ‘What an absurd idea that is.’ Because she’s not talking to me, she’s talking to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way.”
Actually, Dotard Don, considering that the United States was so ill-advised and shit-stupid as to install you in office, the U.S. deserves to be talked to that way.  All of us; even the ones who knew or guessed what a disaster you'd be as President and tried to prevent it.  We didn't do enough to stop you.

Also, I think a big part of the problem was that it was a woman daring to say, "No," to him.

Considering that one dictionary definition of "carry on" is to "behave or speak in a foolish, excited, or improper manner," the designers of that famous poster, "Keep Calm and Carry On," need to make up their flippin' minds!

If that's the case, then he needs to update his attitude towards women to something that's Y2K-compliant.
