LAPD Probably Fully Justified In Shooting Homeless Guy As He Lay Prone On Ground, Says LAPD

Joe Friday has had enough of this shit.
Sunday was a lovely day in Los Angeles, unless you were the homeless guy on downtown’s Skid Row scuffling with LAPD officers who shot and killed you while holding you down on the sidewalk. Then maybe your day was not so good. Read more on LAPD Probably Fully Justified In Shooting Homeless Guy As He Lay Prone On Ground, Says LAPD…

Motorcade For Imperial High Snotnose Obama Arrogantly Delays Pregnant Lady, INPEACH!

He smiled, KNOWINGLY. Inpeach!!!
The Imperial President King of the Formerly United States, Barack Hussein Marie Antoinette Louis XVI Obama, arrogantly forced a pregnant woman to wait to cross the street to a hospital while his motorcade passed in Los Angeles Wednesday. Needless to say, the Wingnuttosphere was all over the story, because it’s just one more symptom of how THAT MAN thinks he is better than the rest of us. You can bet that the motorcade would have come to a screeching halt if the lady had “looked like Obama’s son.” Read more on Motorcade For Imperial High Snotnose Obama Arrogantly Delays Pregnant Lady, INPEACH!…

We May Not Have Donald Sterling to Kick Around Anymore

The legal proceedings surrounding racist jowl monster and Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling just took another weird turn. Apparently, Sterling thought that if he just dissolved the trust that owned the Clippers, then he wouldn’t have to sell the team, because poof, now no one owns the team! The trust’s CFO told him otherwise, but Sterling was having none of it. Ensign Deadspin, set lawsplaining engines to warp factor six! When Donald Sterling dissolved the Sterling Family Trust, the entity that ran the Clippers, he was trying to prevent the sale of the team to Steve Ballmer. It’s pretty simple: if the trust did not exist, it couldn’t sell anything to anyone. Only, it might not be that simple. According to testimony from Darren Schield, the chief financial officer of the Family Trust, the dissolution could cause several banks to find the trust in default on up to $500 million in loans, which Sterling could not repay without selling the team. Oops. Oops indeed, racist and possibly Alzheimer’s-afflicted Donald Sterling! Read more on We May Not Have Donald Sterling to Kick Around Anymore…

Los Angeles Science Teacher Suspended After Students Design Doomsday Weapons

Please do not adjust your interwebs. There is nothing wrong with your computer. Yr Wonkette is actually going to sound like a wingnut blog for just a moment here, because we have to ask if administrators at the Cortines School of Visual & Performing Arts in downtown Los Angeles are maybe just a little completely crazy for suspending science teacher Greg Schiller after two of his students designed projects that the school deemed “imitation weapons.” One would use compressed air to “propel a small object,” but it wasn’t connected to an air source, so it couldn’t have been used. The other would have used an electric coil, powered by a mighty AA battery, to propel a tiny projectile out of a tube. And so Schiller has been suspended from teaching since February because of these kids’ frightening contributions to the science-project arms race.

New Pope Nice Time: Nifty 10-Year-Old Girl Asks For Help With Immigration Reform

Here is a New Pope story that isn’t so much about New Pope as it is about the way people think of New Pope. Depending on your personal ol’ softy settings, you may want to have a hanky nearby. So what happened was that on Wednesday, the day before President Obama tried to convert Pope Francis to Kenyan Marxism, a group of immigration activists from several groups traveled to Rome and tried to get close enough to the pontiff to ask him to urge Barry Bamz to push harder for immigration reform, and especially to put a hold on deportations. They ended up nowhere near the area where Francis greets people in St. Peter’s Square. But one girl traveling with the group, 10-year-old Jersey Vargas, managed to squeeze through the crowd (or “throng,” as one is obliged to call it in a story like this), so she could tell the Pope about her own family’s situation (or “plight” — again, obligatory): Jersey was born in the U.S. to undocumented immigrants and lives with her mom in the San Fernando Valley, but her dad was detained for driving without a license and now faces deportation. There was just one small problem with her plan to talk to the Pope: But then, she was so overcome with emotion, she burst into tears when she got up to the pope. All she could do was hand him a napkin her mother had embroidered with two birds and the words, “nido de amor,” or nest of love. “That napkin represented my family — my mom and dad — until they got separated. Their nido was destroyed,” said the girl[.] Yeah, that’s where we got a little weepy, too. So sue us — we can’t always be cynics, OK?

Los Angeles Councilman Jose Huizar Absolutely Did Not Harass That Employee He Boned

Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar (D – duh, we did say “Los Angeles,” and also sexual harassment, right?), did you sexually harass that employee you were consensually boning? No? Okay, cool then, nothing to see here bye! [Francine] Godoy, 34, said in her lawsuit that Huizar cut back her duties “significantly” and ordered her to work from home after she refused his advances. “Plaintiff would sit at home much of her time with no work to perform since she was being retaliated against by Huizar due to her refusal to have sex with him,” the lawsuit says. Godoy said she ultimately was forced to quit her job and took a position at the city’s Bureau of Sanitation. Los Angeles City Councilman, is Francine Godoy just a malicious witch and woman scorned? She is? Okay, cool then, nothing to … Read more on Los Angeles Councilman Jose Huizar Absolutely Did Not Harass That Employee He Boned…

Wingnut Convinces Self That Yr Wonkette Consorts With Demons, Muslims

Remember how Yr Wonkette went to Jim Hoft’s Big Rage-a-Palooza over the weekend, to demand that he #PAYUP the moneez what he owes us? And remember how this one guy, Eric, grabbed our clever “Nazi-Themed Sign” sign and tried to rip it up while yelling at us about the Holocaust? And we decided to put our sign away, because it was probably a little too meta for this crowd, and also we felt bad and decided we didn’t need to be dicks? We explained the sign to Eric in our Calm Voice and after we put it away (and after he’d trooped off to yell at attendees with actual Nazi-themed signs), he said “Thank you.” We thought we were all good! On the same “honesty in media and also in not actually carrying Nazi-themed signs” team! Neither of us believed Barack Obama was trying to put him in an oven! Which is what he told the people with the actual Nazi-themed signs! Well it turns out that Eric was Eric Golub, the “comedian” who was on the bill for the Rage Thing, and he has written a blog thing about Yr Wonkette! We bet he will apologize for grabbing our clever sign and missing the point! One of the women carried a sign with the word “NAZI” emblazoned on it. Wonkette’s goal was simple: get their sign on camera and hope people would associate conservatives with Nazis. Perhaps they’d even think that conservatives were holding signs suggesting that people be Nazis. This liberal astroturfing fooled nobody, and more than one attendee demanded that the offensive sign be removed. Oh. We think maybe he missed the point again. Or maybe — and we want to be careful here — he lied like a big lying liar. Read more on Wingnut Convinces Self That Yr Wonkette Consorts With Demons, Muslims…

A Children’s Treasury Of Nazi-Themed Signs At Jim Hoft’s Sad Dumb Los Angeles Teabag Thing

Once upon a time Jim Hoft, “the Gateway Pundit,” said a very stupid thing. Some putz from the DSCC or DCCC or OFA or something, we don’t know, it is lost in the mists of time, sent out an email saying “civility alert or something, teabaggers are waving signs with Nazi symbols on them!” Jim Hoft, “the Stupidest Man on the Internet,” said he would give $3150 to anyone who could provide proof, as, he said, “THIS NEVER HAPPENED.” Well, it took your Wonket a solid 90 seconds of googling to find Washington Post pictures of a rally from that very week where Teabag People were comparing the IRS to the SS, with the clever lightning bolts and everything! We can haz muneez now Jim Hoft? No we cannot Haz! Because Jim Hoft then claimed that the DSCC or whoever guy had CLEARLY intimated that the teabaggers were carrying signs approving of the Nazis, because fuck it why not! Was that what the guy had said? Well, no, but that apparently did not stop Hoft from going back into the post, adding the word “approvingly,” and completely changing the terms of his challenge five seconds after his challenge had been met. Then Jim Hoft claimed we owed him $3150. We are beginning to think Jim Hoft might not be intellectually honest!* So we went to their big dumb “Rage Against the Media” rally at the Los Angeles federal building with a simple message: #PAYTHEFUCKUP. And what do you think we saw there? How about two separate dudes waving Nazi-themed signs! Read more on A Children’s Treasury Of Nazi-Themed Signs At Jim Hoft’s Sad Dumb Los Angeles Teabag Thing…

Remember, Los Angeles Wonkers: Today We Tell The Stupidest Man On the Internet To #Payup

Attention, Los Angeles area Wonkaderos, this is your chance to have a laugh at Jim Hoft, the Stupidest Man on the Internet, as he and a bunch of rightwing nutters hold their dopey “Rage Against the Media” event that is sure to change the face of journalism forever. Hoft owes your Wonket money, because he is a lying liar who told lies, and we caught him. But he has not been honorable. Indeed, we wonder if perhaps he is simply not intellectually honest. And so we’re going to show up at his dumb anger party THIS MORNING and let him know, through correctly spelled signs (and possibly an interpretive dance) that it is time for him to #PAYUP.

Los Angeles Wonkers: Here Is Your Golden Opportunity To Get The Stupidest Man On The Internet To #PayUp

Hey, kids, doesn’t a Three Hours’ Hate sound like a fun way to spend a Saturday morning in the Greater Los Angeles Area? Jim Hoft, the Stupidest Man On the Internet, will be one of the headliners at this Rage-a-Palooza aimed at telling the Lamestream Media to finally start telling the truth for a change! (You know, Benghazi and the traitor in the White House, that sort of thing.) So the Ragers will be probably be gathering to tell off Big Media at one of the many corporate headquarters in the area, right? Yep, right there at…the Federal Building in Westwood. Oh, we get it — the media are mere mouthpieces for Big Gummint, right, so they’re going to yell at a closed government office building. Message sent!

Former Los Angeles GOP Head Tweeted Funny Jokes About Filner & Weiner, Then Got Arrested For Sexting With Teen

Here’s one for the “life’s little ironies” files: On July 27, the former executive director of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County, Scott Hounsell, made a funny joke on the Twitter Machine about the Bob Filner scandal in San Diego. It’s right up there at the top of his Twitter feed, which he hasn’t had a chance to update yet, because a few days later, Hounsell was arrested for sending sexually explicit messages to a 16-year-old girl. Unfortunate timing, that. Read more on Former Los Angeles GOP Head Tweeted Funny Jokes About Filner & Weiner, Then Got Arrested For Sexting With Teen…

Weekend Nice-Time: Here Have Some Gay California Weddings, Pfft, Whatever

Friday afternoon, just hours after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals lifted the injunction that had been in place while the Prop 8 case went to the Supremes, all four of the plaintiffs in the case got married. The first wedding, for Berkeley couple Sandy Stier and Roger Ebert Kristin Perry, was performed by California Attorney General Kamala Harris at San Francisco City Hall. About an hour later, plaintiffs Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo were married in a ceremony at Los Angeles City Hall presided over by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. In a disappointment for fans of a vengeful God, seismic activity in the state was no greater than normal. Read more on Weekend Nice-Time: Here Have Some Gay California Weddings, Pfft, Whatever…

Sorry But You Are Going To Need Some Kittens For This One

Are you a social worker? Chances are high, since you are a Wonket libtard. If you are not a social worker, you are either a teacher, a retired spook, or a French pimp. This is just fact. So before we start yelling, just know that if you are a social worker what reads Wonkette, we love you. PRESUMING YOU HAVE NOT BEEN MURDERING ALL THE CHILDREN. What is up, Los Angeles? Has it been too long since a child was murdered by his parents after you’d had six complaints about them? Well set that “days without a murdered child completely ignored by DCFS” back to zero.

Your Thursday Nice Time: Magic Johnson Loves His Live Gay Son

We first spotted this story on World Nut Daily and thought to ourselves, oh Lord, the nuts already hate Magic for having the gay AIDS and for kicking Larry Bird’s ass up and down the court back in the ’80s (the ring count stands forever at Magic: 5, Larry: 3, bitches). The scare quotes in the headline (Magic Johnson “Very Proud” of “Gay” Son – there, now you do not have to clicky clicky and give WND the traffic) betrayed the writer’s take already. Perhaps Special Jackhole Correspondent Chuck Norris had written the story and offered to roundhouse kick the gay right out of young EJ Johnson in exchange for floor seats for the Lakers’ inevitable first-round playoff flameout. What horrifying swill, what terrifying glimpse into the Dante poem that is the religious wingnut hive mind would reveal itself to us if we clicked this link? But we clicked, because we are weak and had not been outraged by anything for, oh, a good hour or two. Sweet relief! The WND story turned out to just be a link and some comments (FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY WE WILL NOT READ THE COMMENTS). And the link led to this very nice beat-sweetener over at the Daily Mail: Read more on Your Thursday Nice Time: Magic Johnson Loves His Live Gay Son…

Yeah, No, Seriously, Los Angeles Spree-Killer Cop Is Really, *REALLY* Liberal

We have already read about what made Los Angeles spree-killin’ cop Christopher Dorner go Django on the entire LAPD (and their families). It was LAPD racisms. So we know who (and what) he hates. But who does he love? Just about all your typical libtards, like Hillary Clinton and Larry David and Ellen Degeneres and Anderson Cooper and Joe Scarborough and Chris Christie and Jon Huntsman. What? After the jump, some extensive selections from his manifesto (this one uncensored), which we had kind of stopped reading after we got through the racisms parts, where he espouses best wishes for women in the military, Hillary (or Christie!) 2016, and burning hell for the Westboro Baptist Church and the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre, because nobody (including himself) needs the kind of fucking arsenal with which he is currently terrorizing the country’s second biggest metropolis, and where your Editrix is currently never leaving her apartment again.

Fired LAPD Officer Going Django On Everyone’s Asses

You may have heard, there is a fired LAPD cop/former sniper going around murdering everyone, from the daughter of the Police League lawyer who didn’t win his case, to all the lesbi-cops and every other “high value target” in the universe. The LAPD, they are responding by shooting anyone in a blue or black truck, including two ladies delivering newspapers. This does not inspire confidence, LAPD! But what you probably have not heard, if you read “everything you need to know” about him on Buzzfeed, is um WHY? Which is easily answered if you read his manifesto. And the answer is LAPD racisms, and he is the Mighty Sword of Anti-Racist Justice. Fuckin’ yikes dude! Can’t you just march with the rest of us, and maybe write blog posts about Tucker Carlson instead? We have found it is an excellent way to release all the feelings that might otherwise have an outlet only in MURDERING PEOPLE’S KIDS. Read more on Fired LAPD Officer Going Django On Everyone’s Asses…

Los Angeles Would Like To Get In On This Rape Cop Game Please

Looks like the NYPD rape cops better step up their game because they have some competition! Whereas the NYPD keeps its lady citizens safe by raping them at gunpoint and or alternatively, when they are too drunk to consent, LA rape cops do it the old fashioned way: by threatening to put them in jail.

Have You Heard The One About The Woman Who Wasn’t Raped ‘Cause She Isn’t Married?

We heard such a good joke last night, you guys! Some real Absurdist Andy Kaufman-style next-level shit! It goes like this: so this chick is sleeping, and when she wakes up her boyfriend is making sweet love to her, all kissy and lovey with his penis in her vagina. Then she sees that it’s not her boyfriend and she screams and fights him off. Wait, wait, here’s where it gets good! We can’t even … laughing so hard … ok, ok, so … the court says she wasn’t raped because based on an 1872 California law, you can be raped by “fraud” if someone impersonates your “husband” but not your “boyfriend” NEW TRIAL haha lolololol OMG!
