No really, it’s beyond anger-inducing all the way to, “You cannot be fucking serious!”
Let’s not believe some stuff.
First up, some Vindication! The other day, while writing about Trump bombing Syria, I wrote Has MSNBC claimed he wanted to start a war with Russia so we could lose it?
So how absurd is MSNBC?
A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war.
A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump’s campaign ties to Russia by provoking the missile strike. (emphasis his)
Heh. Trump help Russia, Russia help Trump. Stupid if you do, idiot if you don’t.
If you follow the link to the next Fake Newser link (Wash Post), you can see it in all it’s absurdity.
Here we are back to the Bush-era absurdity of anti-war protestors beating up pro-war folks.
Authorities say a peaceful protest in downtown Jacksonville escalated into a confrontation between demonstrators and their opponents Friday night.
So…..peaceful until it “turned into” a melee. Gee, I wonder who started said melee? The organizer was one of the arrested and this guy.
one man at the protest was waving a pro-Trump flag while several protesters “stood in his face while recording him with cellphones.” They said Crooms “began to yell ‘[expletive] the police’ and the protesters followed his lead.”
The man holding the Trump flag began to yell pro-police statements into a megaphone, police said, and Crooms went after him. A struggle ensued between police and Crooms, who was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
That is just so perfectly and absurdly 21st century
Speaking of absurd idiots, The Obama Admin!
Former Obama administration officials are pushing back against criticism of the former president, saying they proposed similar airstrikes in Syria to the ones President Donald Trump ordered this week, but were stymied by a Republican-controlled Congress reluctant to go along with the Democratic president’s plan
Okay, that’s just absurd on so many levels. First, the lie that they wanted to bomb anybody but Texas and Israel, then the lie that the GOP Congress “Stymied” Obama on any-fucking-thing. I’m not sure if they’re stupid or they think we’re stupid.
I know, it’s both. Sorry, I shouldn’t be so absurd.
Nuke The Moon Baby!
Diplomats can’t agree on what Trump will do next in Syria
Keep our enemies guessing.
I know I’m inclined to see it because I was hoping for it, but this is a good step on the way to a Nuke The Moon POTUSy.
Hillary just keeps getting more and more absurd. Do you realize she had a Dem Party operative “meet” her on a path in the woods so a couple months later Minitrue could write articles about how Hillary’s Come Out Of The Woods! (there’s like a billion articles about her coming out of the woods, absurd)
Even more absurd is Hillary explaining why
she..we lost in 2016.
Over the course of her soft-focus conversation with the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof, the former secretary of state identified some of the reasons she thinks she lost to President Donald Trump….
Clinton blamed FBI director James B. Comey…
She also blamed Russia…
She blamed the hacking group WikiLeaks…
Clinton blamed the “weaponization of information.”…
She also jokingly blamed her chief Democratic primary opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and media…
“Certainly, misogyny played a role”…
It’s amazing how many things came together to take down this paragon of a perfect POTUS!
It might be absurd, but I’m actually for the exact opposite.
Democratic assemblywoman Deborah Glick of the New York State Assembly has introduced legislation that would fine people who do not vote
Considering that they keep electing NY politicians, I’d arrest NYers for voting. Aiding and abetting a felon is itself a felony! What is the law about a conspiracy that includes millions of people aiding thousands of felons?
Ignorance Is Bliss! only sounds absurd. Until you live it.
In a paper released [last] Friday by the New Zealand Attitudes and Values Study, researchers found that people who listen to, watch or read the news are more likely to display a dislike of Muslims, a trend that applies across the political spectrum.
It’s not an article about Islam without this de rigueur, 21st century absurdity.
The researchers also lament the fact that “media-induced Islamophobia” will become more severe if Islamic extremists continue to attack Western targets in order to “maximize the effects of media induced anger.”
People keep getting pissed off at Muslims because the media covers Islamic terror goings on.
It’s absurd that communism is treated as anything but a force for enslaving the masses to the will of murderous dictators.
Human trafficking in Cuba is an ongoing problem that the Obama State Department sought to downplay in its 2015 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report reclassifying the island from Tier 3 to Tier 2 watch list and human rights experts at the State Department denounced its politicization at the time observing that there had been no improvement to justify the move. Nevertheless the Associated Press has once again gone a step further in fake news on Cuba by reporting that the United States “removed Cuba from a blacklist of countries that have failed to combat modern-day slavery after both countries formally restored diplomatic relations in July 2015.” This is not true and Cuba remains on the blacklist on Tier 2.
The Obama State Department’s last TIP report (2016) despite trying to minimize the Cuban governments involvement in human trafficking affirmed that “Cuba is a source and destination country for adults and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor. Child sex trafficking and child sex tourism occur within Cuba.” Furthermore reported on how the Castro regime “uses some high school students in rural areas to harvest crops and does not pay them for their work but claims this work is not coerced.”
I hate commies. I really do.
Now the Gangotri and Yamunotri glaciers as well as waterfalls, forests, lake, meadows and other environmental features in the area have all been granted legal rights as “living entities.”
The glaciers are among the largest in the Himalayas and feed into the Ganga and Yamuna rivers. However, they are receding at an “alarming rate,” the judges said according to Press Trust of India, with the Gangotri glacier shrinking more than 2,800 feet in about 25 years.
“The rights of these entities shall be equivalent to the rights of human beings and any injury or harm caused to these bodies shall be treated as injury or harm caused to human beings,” Uttarakhand’s highest court said in its ruling, according to AFP.
So they’re ‘persons’ and are protected by the law?
Well then arrest all the rivers in India for spreading dysentary (attempted manslaughter!), arrest the glaciers for causing global worming! Arrest the trees too, I’ll figure out the charges by the time you get them in custody.
Love the bit about the glacier, 2800 feet in about 25 years! At that rate, within about a thousand years it’ll be gone! And it’ll be all our fault!
This is the coolest thing. From now on when synchronized swimming is on, I’ll turn my tv upside-down.
