Stupid Conservative Memes…

“Democracy vs. Republic” This meme continues the abuse of teenagers who lived through their fellow students getting massacred on February 14, 2018, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The assertion is—like the assertion that these students are not old enough, or wise enough, to change the insanely permissive gun laws in the […]

“Heritage Not Hate” At no additional charge, I have corrected the spelling and punctuation in this meme: “According to the left, Emma González’s [Cuban flag] patch has everything to do with heritage and nothing to do [with] the fact [that] Cuba is controlled by murderous Communists. Just as this [Confederate flag patch] has to do […]

“Brits Took Away Our Guns” This has got to be one of the silliest Conservative responses to the “March for Our Lives” that took place, primarily in the USA but also in the UK, on Saturday, March 24. The fact (as if Conservatives could bother with facts… or balance.) is that the “March for Our […]

“Demanding More Government” News reports say that Florida legislators are now requiring Broward County Public School students to carry ID and wear clear (see-through) backpacks to school—which the county says they will provide. In the meme, featuring pictures of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students David Hogg and Emma González, Conservatives berated the supposed “hypocrisy” […]

“People of Color Too Lazy” Yes, I’m sure it’s just that we think People of Color are too stupid or lazy to get an ID. It surely could not be— Many people work multiple jobs, or don't own or have access to transportation, or don't live in a county with a DMV to get ID. […]

“Maryland School Shooter and SRO” To clarify— The SRO who fired on the Maryland shooter was a trained, armed deputy sheriff. He was facing a shooter armed not with a large semi-automatic rifle, but with a handgun. The shooter was still able to seriously wound the person he targeted, so the SRO didn’t end the […]

It’s the Guns

Taking after the rant by Cenk Uygur The Young Turks, 2/15/2017 There have been 7 school shootings in the USA in the first 45 days of 2018, including the Parkland shooting on February 14.* The USA is averaging a school shooting every week! In the USA there were 270,000,000 guns and 90 mass shooters from 1966-2012 […]

Mis-statement of Beliefs

A few days ago, I discovered a meme calling itself a Statement of Beliefs. Then I thought, “This a lot to unpack, but I believe I will give it a shot.” I copied the meme to this page. Here’s my take on it— “There's only two genders” (I’ll leave aside the grammatical error) When I […]

About that Russian hacking…

  “Beware lest in your anxiety to avoid war you obtain a master” —Demosthenes (BCE 384-382), writing a perfect epitaph for the Democratic Party The Democrats want you distracted with tales of Russian election interference so they don’t have to answer for losing the 2016 election to a con-man reality TV star. The mainstream media […]
