The Watering Hole; Friday September 2 2016; GrOuP Insanity

Dead v stupid

If it were up to me, I’d change the word “stupid” to “insane,” even though I’m not sure there’s all that much difference in the two when the subjects are right wing Republicans (aka “TrumpiSStas”).

Anyway, whomever out there is struggling to define “insanity” in that context, these links should help. A lot. The titles themselves tell most of the story, so click at your own risk.

Michael Savage: EPA Head ‘Looks Like The Type That Stuffed The Ovens In Bergen-Belsen’

Far-right radio host Michael Savage had a meltdown yesterday over reports that the Environmental Protection Agency will begin collecting “voluntary, self-disclosed sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) workforce data” from its employees.

Savage even compared “the mean-faced, clipped-hair” EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to a Nazi death camp worker: “Take a look at her picture on my website, it makes your blood boil, she looks just like, to me, personal answer, the woman looks like the type that stuffed the ovens in Bergen-Belsen.”

OK, I give up. There are no words . . .

  1. Another Tip From Of The Weiner:

    Michael Savage: Obama Will Steal The Election From Trump

    [Savage] alleged that President Obama is addicted to criminal behavior much like a drug addict, describing him as “a man who is seeking a greater thrill to see what he can get away with next” who “has to escalate his crimes against America.”

    Savage, a fervent supporter of Donald Trump, said that Obama administration officials “are basically telling us that if Trump wins, they’ll suspend the election because something is going to happen, or they’re going to take control of the election to make sure Trump can’t win.”

    • The whole point of such dialogue is to convince the base that should Hillary win, her Presidency will be illegitimate. Note you’ve already got Trump advocating that the base exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights, should Hillary be elected. Statistically speaking, at least one gun nut will be motivated to “save America” from President Hillary Clinton – maybe even before the election.

      • True story. That’s why I’m voting for Hillary! According to Trump she’s gonna get rid of the second amendment and collect everybody’s guns — even if Obama has to “escalate his crimes against America” to keep Trump out of the White House!

    • I have mixed thoughts about those – while funny, I think that the real Calvin is essentially a sensitive and honest soul, chaotically so, but still. I have two sons who consider(ed) (one still does at 10), Calvin a role-model….

      … Drumpf to be associated with Calvin…. I find that dissonant.

  2. Savage even compared “the mean-faced, clipped-hair” EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to a Nazi death camp worker: “Take a look at her picture on my website, it makes your blood boil, she looks just like, to me, personal answer, the woman looks like the type that stuffed the ovens in Bergen-Belsen.”

    It sounds to me like all those caveats Weiner is putting in there will not protect him from libel or slander suits, except maybe the fact that she’s a “public figure.” And even if it’s his constitutional right to say those things (disputed), it’s still a horribly ugly thing to say about another human being, especially from one that’s as hideous to look at as Weiner. And he is. That’s a fact I have no problem stating publicly, and especially where he’ll never see it.🙂

    • Yes, thick as thieves. Their sweetheart deal with Apple grants them tax loopholes illegal in the EU. Now that their advantage has been busted, the Irish are going to have to figure out how to unscrew this.

    • Two things:

      First, I used to think I was part Swedish until I realized (only a few years ago) that I couldn’t possibly be. My father’s mother was Swedish and his father was German, so my father was half-Swedish, half-German. But I only got my Y-chromosome from him, not his X. So I got none of my grandmother’s Swedish lineage from him and only my grandfather’s German lineage. So I’m not really Swedish at all. Which saddens me. Instead, I get teased about being part German with all the jokes about Hitler. I just remind them that Hitler was Austrian, not German.

      And second, “Dancing Queen” was (and might still be) Newt Gingrich’s ring tone.

  3. I know this is impossible to believe, but — the Trump Foundation . . . sigh.

    Trump Foundation Fined In REAL ‘Pay To Play’ Scheme, NYT Whiffs On Reporting It

    In 2013, the foundation sent a $25,000 donation to Pam Bondi, Florida’s attorney general, for her re-election campaign, according to the report. Foundations which are tax-exempt under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code are not permitted to make donations to political candidates, but the Trump Foundation did it anyway. Maybe Donald didn’t have the cash on hand.

    Trump was very interested in supporting Bondi’s bid for election, because there was a Trump University case pending before her office at the very same time. After receiving that sizable donation, Bondi declined to prosecute the case.

    I’m guessing — given some stuff I’ve read about Trump, chicks, etc. — that Bondi is prolly not flat-chested either. But of course that’s only a guess. Sort of.

  4. Git yer guns out, locked and loaded, people! The ‘October Surprise’ is on its way!

    An ‘October Surprise’: Alex Jones Warns Of Jihadi Forces Planted By The Government

    The government has “brought in” Jihadi forces, and they’re simply awaiting activation. This is not presented as theory or debate, in Infowars World, this is an accepted fact.

    Anthony Weiner’s dick pics are a, “false-flag manipulation of the news.” It’s hard to understand why Dems would use this as a strategy. The suggestion is that they’re using the story to distract from more damaging news stories, that doubtlessly would come to light, were they not overshadowed by…Wiener. As a bonus, they get to say his wife’s name (Huma Abedin) a few times, which sounds vaguely threatening if you live in an underground bunker in Idaho.

    • We may have bigger problems on the East Coast with “angry” waves coming ashore. I’m wondering what will happen when Mother Nature gets overheated and sends some really pissed-off waves at us!

  5. Oh damn. Scary scary.

    Trump Adviser Michele Bachmann Warns That ‘This Is The Last Election’

    “It’s a math problem of demographics and a changing United States,” she said. “If you look at the numbers of people who vote and who lives in the country and who Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton want to bring in to the country, this is the last election when we even have a chance to vote for somebody who will stand up for godly moral principles. This is it.”

    Bachmann said that if Clinton were elected, she would offer “wholesale amnesty” to undocumented immigrants “so that Republicans will never again have the chance at winning Florida or Texas” and therefore be unable to secure the White House.

    “She’s going to change the demographics of the United States so that no Republican will ever win again,” Bachmann insisted.
