And let’s take a moment to observe their latest atrocity:
Roseanne Barr, arguably the face of “pro-Trump” Hollywood, has seen a recent career boost built on giving a voice to the millions of Americans who support the president. But a Tuesday morning Twitter rant is the most recent example of how her efforts to provide a more nuanced portrayal of Trump supporters may be doing more harm than good.
Barr invoked racist and Islamophobic stereotypes that triggered so much outrage that ABC canceled her successful sitcom. The most offensive tweet has been deleted, one combining a common anti-black racist trope with a conspiracy theory referring to former Obama White House senior aide Valerie Jarrett.
OK, there is no nuance. This is who they are. And this is who she is:
Why is Sinclair Broadcast Group making news instead of reporting news? Because it wants to control what you think. Amazingly, it’s more insidious than Fox News. We thought news coverage was bad. It’s now worse. Take a look.
Sinclair supports Spanky McPornfucker and the crimes his administration minions are cycling through like Lance Armstrong on an anabolic bender. The right-wing robots have taken control. We are now in the outer limits:
Hundreds of thousands of people, mostly kids, participated Saturday in the March for Our Lives. Below is the main stage after the event. It was impossible to get to it once the event began:
And here are the signs.
The following is something I’ve been saying for months:
People are sick of the “thoughts and prayers” response from politicians who prostitute themselves for the NRA …
And the people at the march kept the focus on kids. Practically all of the speakers talked about how guns have affected their lives, from Parkland high school students, to kids in Washington, D.C., who have lost siblings to gun violence or who have stared down the barrel of a gun thinking it was going to be their last second alive.
There was also a reminder of when we had a compassionate, responsible, intelligent and uncorruptable leader in the White House not that long ago:
I arrived at the march a little late and had to leave early because of the crush of the crowd, but while I was there, none of the speakers gave a roll call for the congressional whores who take NRA money in exchange for kids lives. Perhaps someone did do it, but if not, here’s a reminder:
What I love about “Drunk History” is that it’s really a history lesson. I’ve read about Nichelle Nichols and the story about Dr. King and the recruitment efforts for NASA, but it’s great that people are at least hearing the story.
Even if the storyteller is drunk.
DIdn’t notice that, did you?
