She is making an Illuminati signal to her BFF the devil.

UH OH LOOK OUT “PRESIDENT” TRUMP! Turns out that the worst prophecies of noted journalist Alex Jones are coming true and Barack Obama, now that he is not president anymore, is yes indeedy creating an army of Illuminati Beyoncés to take over America and then the world! And he is doing this by getting Jay-Z to make his wife Beyoncé pragnet WITH TWINS!

WHAT? Do we even know they are HER TWIN BABIES? They might be Obama’s babies, or Satan’s babies!

Just kidding. We are very happy for Bey and Jay. This just proves you can have it all, ladies! You can have all kinds of babies; be an operator who brings home the paper; get all up in Mike Huckabee’s grill just by existing; murder all cops by singing and dancing at the Super Bowl; take your man’s ass to Red Lobster after he fuck you good; scare the bejesus out of some wussy Tennessee sheriff, again just by existing; murder all the rest of white America, because the CIA told you to; eat all the children’s brains, but not your own children’s brains, because they are part of the Army Of Beyoncés and are therefore exempt from getting their brains eated; and also be the sole reason the new “president” of the United States is such a perverted trash monster, because your nakey performance outfits are TOO NAUGHTY.

Anyway, here is a suggestion for who could be the babies’ godmother, or at least their “Auntie Hillary”:

Hooray for our new overlords in the Beyoncé Illuminati cult!

You may now use this as your open thread.

    My daughter had twins. It’s not for the faint of heart.

    • whitroth

      Trust me, it’s not. Nor for folks who have difficulty with shortage of sleep. As in, as one stops crying in the middle of the night, the other gets set off.

      My twins are in their thirties, now….

      • Yr. Gma

        Yes, they decide in the womb that they need to tag team, and as we always said, it takes at least three people to care for those two little ones.

      • proudgrampa

        Poo. The proudtwins are in their mid 40s. The thing that always freaked me out was when they would switch. The introvert would switch to the extrovert and the extrovert would switch to the introvert.

        Crazy.

    • Jenny

      I had twins. I’ve never recovered.

    • YoBunnyBunny

      Damn right. I’m a twin. And the few things worse than twins by themselves is another toddler running around. It didn’t really help my Mom that our older sis (2 years older) was one of those silent sneaky mischievous toddlers that had a one-word vocabulary of “No”. BunnyMom had her hands and arms full.

    • JCfromNC

      My sister had twins. It’s a good thing she’s an overachiever. They turned out into a pretty awesome pair of young women.

  • Martini Ambassador

    Wait, “The Carters?” They have last names?

    • YoBunnyBunny

      Yep. And the male one even answers to “Mr. Carter-Knowles” because I think he added her name to his.

  • Ducksworthy

    So OK. You got your Illuminati. What is the opposite of Illuminati? Deplorable? Un-Illuminati? Aren’t some people just dim-illuminati?

  • Cousin Itt de La Résistance

    (so good to say that again)

  • Michael Smith

    Ugh Trump is going to be so frustrated that this takes attention away from him for a minute.

    • Beowoof14

      I am starting to hope that being this much of an asshole for this amount of time is starting to take it’s toll on Trump and he retires to Mar-A-Lago full time.

  • Crystalclear12

    Good, I expect them to take over by next weekend.
    Hop to!

  • wide_stance_hubby

    Don’t know/care jack shit about Beyonce, but I do know/care something about flowers and that heap behind her is so awful, it’s Trumpian.

    • CindyinEncinitas

      The whole thing is horrible. Misguided. IDK. Something something, I’ve got lots of money.

      • wide_stance_hubby

        Nevermind the clown-pants color scheme, but also, half of the orchids are wilted. It looks like a florist’s dumpster.

        • CindyinEncinitas

          Really, I am having trouble deciding whether all of those flowers are even real.

    • Jenny

      It looks like something ya find on a grocery store catholic candle? Maybe that was the look she was going for?

      • Yr. Gma

        Now that I look at it again, I think maybe you are right.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Reminds me of the schlock babby pics that Anne Geddes used to churn out.

      • CindyinEncinitas

        Oh, wait. That’s it. It’s a riff on the makeshift memorial.

    • Yr. Gma

      Okay, but why is this a problem in the greater picture? I, for one, do not care which flowers she put where.

    • shaar dula

      you were looking at the flowers?

  • anon_the_great

    Hey, WTF have Uday and Kusay Trump been up to tas of late? Weren’t they supposed to be hammering out conflict of interest shit lo these past three months? In inquiring minds want to know.

    • Yr. Gma

  • CindyinEncinitas

    That’s nice that she’s pregnant and all, I guess, but that picture is just stupid. I’m sorry. Maybe I’m just bitchy. Or maybe I’m pissed because I’m taking tomorrow off because it’s my birthday and so you would think ONE of my bosses or co-workers would have taken me to lunch or brought me a cupcake or SOMETHING. Why do I get hurt by these things? Is it because I come from a big family where I got overlooked a lot or because I’m utterly self-involved or because PEOPLE ARE DICKS? We may NEVER KNOW the answer to this and other important questions. That is why there are sports and drugs and rock and roll, I guess. I will now return you to your normal programming.

    • Truck Fump

      People are dicks. Happy early birthday!

      • Yr. Gma

        This. And it makes you feel any better, not one boss in my long working life ever took me to lunch for my birthday.

        • CindyinEncinitas

          I would have taken you. You seem nice.

          • Yr. Gma

            XOXO

        • shaar dula

          I would be shit scared if my boss took me out for lunch.

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      It’s deliberately bad, though. Like, it’s Beyonce, so once she does it, it’s officially cool.

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      Also, I avoid birthdays like the plague, but I hope yours is nice.

      • CindyinEncinitas

        Thank you. I went to La Jolla and got myself a wonderful lemon grass chicken banh mi and somebody brought in girl scout cookies, and I’m not really working so FUCK THOSE GUYS.

    • shaar dula

      alright. but you never completed your original thought. why is that picture stupid?

      • CindyinEncinitas

        It’s over-the-top decadent. The flower orgasm and the silly outfit made out of precious fabrics and the Mother Nature theme with someone who prolly wouldn’t be caught dead camping and who wouldn’t know the first thing about the outdoors. I bet she couldn’t grow a tomato to save her life. I’m such a bitch. Sorry.

    • Happy Day Before Your Birthday, CindyinEncinitas!

      Girl I hear you. I’m the 27th. A) winter birthdays suck the bag. Where I live cold means “really cold”. B) I don’t expect people to do anything for my birthday. Then I don’t get continuously disappointed. C) Picture is ridiculous. I kinda see where they might have been going with it, but they missed by a mile.

      What “is” Beyonce. Why does the “Beyonce, Inc.” brand marketing always include the subject in 1) Underwear 2) Bodysuit 3) Naked Dress.

      Nevermind. I know why.

    • MynameisBlarney

        • Good_Gawd_Yall

          Happy birthday, about 6 hours early! (EST, what can I say) Have some of those cakes we like and forget about it. If life were perfect we wouldn’t need a place like Wonkette to vent, and we’d never have met you!

          • CindyinEncinitas

  • President of Equitorial Guinea, Teodoro Obiang Nguema — in power since 1979, when he had the former president executed — and his extended family would like to congratulate Rex Tillerson on his new post as SecState.

    From WaPo:

    “An inconvenient truth: Exxon enables kleptocracy in Equatorial Guinea.

    In the 20 years after the 1991 oil discovery in Equatorial Guinea, the country’s GDP grew from $130 million to $2.3 billion. This sudden growth was singularly fueled by the petroleum industry, with ExxonMobil drilling in the largest proven oil reserve. Overnight, Equatorial Guinea went from a repressive, corrupt, poor and isolated nation to a filthy-rich — but still tyrannical and obscure — darling of the West. Today, Equatorial Guinea has the highest GDP per capita of any sub-Saharan country, yet nearly two-thirds of the population lives in extreme poverty. Spending on health, education and other social sectors remains below the Central Africa regional average. Infant mortality rates rival those of Afghanistan.”

    President* Twitler’s National Security Adviser and Conspiracy Gardener, Michael Flynn, is putting Iran “on notice” about its missile test, with a threat of unspecified retaliation.

    The Straits of Hormuz, through which about 20% of the world’s oil transits, is eighteen miles wide, sits off of the coast of Iran, and can be easily blockaded with mines. Any tension in this area would send oil prices skyrocketing. Rosneft, Putin, and Twitler would all benefit massively. Lifting sanctions against Russia would open up the closed oilfields owned by ExxonMobil and be worth half a trillion dollars to Putin.

    But I’m sure we have nothing to worry about, as the current administration has only the best interests of the country at heart.

    White House blustering, saber rattling at Iran and their missile tests and warning them to behave. Iranian leaders referred to the White House as ridiculous and Trump as a “novice”!
    Damn, we’re tightening friendship and spreading the love more and more every day.
    I feel safer each new day!

    [Rouhani added, “They [the US administration] chanted slogans for years that we are against the Iranian government but support the Iranian people, but since this person [Trump] is a special person, he revealed this hypocrisy and displayed what is in their hearts. He took measures that merely target a number of our dear citizens or Muslims and people in other countries.”
    _____________________________
    Saying that Trump’s three main qualities include “money worship,” “vulgarism” and “racism,” Larijani argued, “We should provide special funding for the scientific and research centers [in Iran] to [be able to] accept and welcome the Iranian scientists who are working in the US but can’t go to the US anymore due to the visa ban.”]

    How Putin became a nationalist hero.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/03/its-putins-world/513848/?google_editors_picks=true

    After the global financial crisis of 2008, populist uprisings had sprouted across Europe. Putin and his strategists sensed the beginnings of a larger uprising that could upend the Continent and make life uncomfortable for his geostrategic competitors. A 2013 paper from the Center for Strategic Communications, a pro-Kremlin think tank, observed that large patches of the West despised feminism and the gay-rights movement and, more generally, the progressive direction in which elites had pushed their societies. With the traditionalist masses ripe for revolt, the Russian president had an opportunity. He could become, as the paper’s title blared, “The New World Leader of Conservatism.”

      I was going to post a link to that. It is distressing reading. My takeaway: During the last ten years when I believed that the Culture Wars were gradually winding down and that we had been proved to be on the right side of history, I was utterly underestimating the extent and the danger of the world-wide backlash that was forming.

    Trump policy roll-out, shock and awe.

    http://nbcnews.to/2kr8OBk

    “You don’t know which missiles to hit. Is that a decoy, or is that for real? And that allows things that you might not be aware of to sneak through.”

    Officials involved in transition planning told the Washington Post that Sen. Jeff Sessions, the attorney general-designate, lobbied for a “shock and awe” approach in the first days of the administration in an attempt to rattle Congress. The military strategy promotes the use of overwhelming speed and disinformation, among other things, to paralyze the opposition.

    • Count Awesome

      As if Trump could do anything to shock or awe me at this point.

    • Hellhathnofury Demme

      Yep.
      It’s called a “shock event.”
      (facebook copy/paste, sorry)

      Important message from Heather Richardson, professor of History at Boston College:

      “I don’t like to talk about politics on Facebook– political history is my job, after all, and you are my friends– but there is an important non-partisan point to make today.
      What Bannon is doing, most dramatically with last night’s ban on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries– is creating what is known as a “shock event.”
      Such an event is unexpected and confusing and throws a society into chaos. People scramble to react to the event, usually along some fault line that those responsible for the event can widen by claiming that they alone know how to restore order. When opponents speak out, the authors of the shock event call them enemies. As society reels and tempers run high, those responsible for the shock event perform a sleight of hand to achieve their real goal, a goal they know to be hugely unpopular, but from which everyone has been distracted as they fight over the initial event. There is no longer concerted opposition to the real goal; opposition divides along the partisan lines established by the shock event.
      Last night’s Executive Order has all the hallmarks of a shock event. It was not reviewed by any governmental agencies or lawyers before it was released, and counterterrorism experts insist they did not ask for it. People charged with enforcing it got no instructions about how to do so. Courts immediately have declared parts of it unconstitutional, but border police in some airports are refusing to stop enforcing it.
      Predictably, chaos has followed and tempers are hot. My point today is this: unless you are the person setting it up, it is in no one’s interest to play the shock event game. It is designed explicitly to divide people who might otherwise come together so they cannot stand against something its authors think they won’t like. I don’t know what Bannon is up to– although I have some guesses– but because I know Bannon’s ideas well, I am positive that there is not a single person whom I consider a friend on either side of the aisle– and my friends range pretty widely– who will benefit from whatever it is. If the shock event strategy works, though, many of you will blame each other, rather than Bannon, for the fallout. And the country will have been tricked into accepting their real goal. But because shock events destabilize a society, they can also be used positively. We do not have to respond along old fault lines. We could just as easily reorganize into a different pattern that threatens the people who sparked the event.
      A successful shock event depends on speed and chaos because it requires knee-jerk reactions so that people divide along established lines. This, for example, is how Confederate leaders railroaded the initial southern states out of the Union.
      If people realize they are being played, though, they can reach across old lines and reorganize to challenge the leaders who are pulling the strings. This was Lincoln’s strategy when he joined together Whigs, Democrats, Free-Soilers, anti-Nebraska voters, and nativists into the new Republican Party to stand against the Slave Power.
      Five years before, such a coalition would have been unimaginable. Members of those groups agreed on very little other than that they wanted all Americans to have equal economic opportunity. Once they began to work together to promote a fair economic system, though, they found much common ground. They ended up rededicating the nation to a ‘government of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ Confederate leaders and Lincoln both knew about the political potential of a shock event. As we are in the midst of one, it seems worth noting that Lincoln seemed to have the better idea about how to use it.”

  • Bill D. Burger

    It was so embarrassing . I’m quite sure that these two buffons, shown a picture of Fredrick Douglass, would say, “Great pic of Don King. Supported us. Great guy.”

    “During a listening session at the White House to honor Black History Month on Wednesday, President Donald Trump praised Frederick Douglass, who died in 1895, as “somebody who’s done an amazing job” and whose work is “being recognized more and more.”

    The remarks immediately called into question whether the president knew who the abolitionist actually was.

    [Neither Donald Trump nor Sean Spicer Seem to Know That Frederick Douglass Is Dead

      Spicer’s was a bit of a word salad. My first thought was “he doesn’t even know who Frederick Douglass is” but I wasn’t positive. The fact that he moved on to the next questioner really, really quick makes me go with my first impression.

    A federal judge in Los Angeles issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday night against the enforcement of President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order.

    Judge André Birotte Jr. ruled that Trump’s immigration order posed a likelihood of “irreparable harm” against 28 plaintiffs, including both U.S. citizens and their relatives who had received visas to immigrate to the country, the Sacramento Bee noted. The order allows dozens of Yemeni travelers stuck in Djibouti to travel to the United States.

      After taking on the fifth job in 10 years, I decided to look at the new stuff as positive, whether it really was or not. The way things were done at the last place – that was shit and was doomed to failure. The way they do it at new place – well, they haven’t disappointed yet, at least (until they finally do), and at least it’s not the same shit as the last place.

    [Trump Approved A Disastrous Military Operation in Yemen
    February 1, 2017
    Jason Turesky JASON TURESKY

    The first military operation Donald Trump has authorized as President ended in disaster on Sunday in Yemen, resulting in the death of Chief Petty Officer William Owens and 14 Yemeni people, including 8-year-old Nawar al-Awlaki

    The mission, which according to the Guardian, had been previously “pocket vetoed” by President Obama, was conducted in order to gather intelligence on suspected operations by al-Qaida in the Arabian peninsula.

    Things took a turn for the worst when the Navy Seal’s V-22 Osprey helicopter-airplane hybrid crashed and had to be destroyed.

    “Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong.” said national security expert Juliette Kayyem on Boston Public Radio Wednesday.]

So a decent school, online. I did have to go out once a semester but I’m not sure all programs require that.

            It’s studio art, so you can’t really do it on line. Plus, one of the reasons I want to do this is that I need to get reconnected to the art community, which is very difficult for an introverted 61-year-old who has been out of the loop for 25 years.

Of course, they only show you the pretty parts but that’s pretty standard. I didn’t see it again until after the war. The venues that only a few years ago had been filled with hundreds of thousands of sports fans were rubble, the Olympic rings still visible on partial walls.

    I remember seeing that at the time and thinking, ‘Look at that. America looks good now too, but that can happen here. It CAN happen here. Remember.’

    Well, this is the turning part for America. Remember the rubble of other once great cities destroyed even without a greater war. It can happen here. It might have to if we want to reclaim our country and re-install our Constitution.

    Oh, for fuck’s sake!

  • Gosala

    Some ex congress critter minions have put together a practical plan for massive resistence bared on the tactics of the tea party.

    https://www.indivisibleguide.com/web/

    My only observation right now is that I would like it to be extended to the local level and include a strategy for finding and developing potential candidates.

    • Ω cynmac will never surrender

      It has been extended. The group in my small town, adjacent to Atlanta and 8000 strong, has spawned multiple groups. The one I attended Sunday was full of neophytes and I’m not sure that I’m going to stay. I have no interest in “leading”.

      • Gosala

        How did you find them? I’ve been doing Google searches for my area and so far nada.

      • WomanInTheResistance

        You are the captain of your own ship. But if possible, can you at least help the newcomers become leaders?

        • Ω cynmac will never surrender

          Perhaps. But I’ve been cultivating my own hive since 2011 and have it down to a manageable size and effectively working. I guess I could stay with it for a while. Both me and my neighbor had the same assessment, but since she keeps the condo board from fuckitide (which saves me money), I guess I could take one for the team.

          • WomanInTheResistance

            It is entirely up to you (yes, I can be pretty obvious), but your work is appreciated. Thank you.

    It should have been one of the most congenial calls for the new commander in chief — a conversation with the leader of Australia, one of America’s staunchest allies, at the end of a triumphant week.

    Instead, President Trump blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refu­gee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his electoral college win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange. Then, 25 minutes into what was expected to be an hour-long call, Trump abruptly ended it.

    At one point Trump informed Turnbull that he had spoken with four other world leaders that day — including Russian President Vladi­mir Putin — and that, “This was the worst call by far.”

Australia’s strategic proximity to China’s South China Sea activity, Australian intelligence sharing on what is going on in south-east Asia, joint anti-drug and anti-child exploitation operations? I dunno, not much.

        Trump. Fuck.

        The only comfort I derive is that the arrival of Trump on the Australian political scene has caused the right wing element of the Lib/Nat governing party to either defect to the fascist One Nation Party or declare allegiance to Trump publicly. As a Labor supporter, I view this with growing hope for a change in government, as Trump is NOT popular here.

            One Nation is our current far-right party. It doesn’t get anywhere near a majority of the popular vote, but as we have preferential voting for federal upper house seats, they do have 4 senate seats. The good news is that they would rather fight amongst themselves than get together to do serious damage.

    I’ve been watching YouTube videos all day to avoid writing and I came out with three thoughts:

    There is a way to for popular culture to talk about women deciding whether or not to keep fetuses who are definitely or likely going to be disabled (whether that means adoption or abortion) because they are not sure whether or not they can take care of them; sitcoms are absurdly sexist; and straight white cis conventionally attractive women who are OK with following society’s conventional rules for women need to not talk about feminism. Ever.

    • Up In Smoke O’hontas

      Isn’t that three thoughts? I’m a girl, so, you know, math is hard and stuff.
      TBH, I’m interested in the cult of attractiveness and white privilege correlation. They’re both mechanisms of social control, but to varying, potentially voluntary degrees.

      • IOnlyLikeCats

        I fixed it right after (forgot about the sitcom thing until I started writing). There’s definitely a correlation. I know there is stuff on that but I don’t remember where.

        • Up In Smoke O’hontas

          Hey, I’m ok with alt math. I’ve been thinking about the general antifeminist tone that’s become so loud in the recent years, especially under “she’s not a 10 in chief”, and I think it’s the body positive momentum and the connectivity of the MRAs that’s loosened up the underlying weakness of people who are intimidated by others who buck the norm and manage to be fulfilled without fulfilling the social expectations…but obviously, I haven’t bothered my little head with it too much.

        In fact, it looks like Australia exports FIVE AND A HALF TIMES as much to China than it does to the US. It sells more to the Chinese than it does to its next three trading partners (in order: Japan, the US, South Korea) combined.

        And you already opted out of the TPP, Trumpy, so they’re ALREADY “economically anxious” about America.

    • Alan

      Of course I would but my wife might be annoyed.

    • Juan de Fuca

      Yes. 46 and already happily married but yes. Mostly because my wife turns 50 before I do –

      HEYYYY OHHH!

      That and she’s not only very attractive but has a sense of humor that matches my own.

      If she left me to tomorrow for the newspaper boy, could go younger or older. It’s all about personality at the end of the day.

      • WomanInTheResistance

        And I want to send you hugs. And also hugs to Juana de Fuca. Because she obviously has very good taste.

        • Juan de Fuca

          Thank you ma’am. For the record, I married up. She’s a good one. Still smoking hot (to me and at least one close friend of mine who won’t stop openly flirting with her every chance he gets) and we still crack each other up. Plenty of tough times also too but laughter makes everything better.

          Could easily go for an older woman or younger one if she decides to go on an Eat, Pray, Love journey – it’s kind of a joke in our house.

        Husband and I also have a list of omg’s that we’re out the door for in a heartbeat. It’s one of my fav parts of our relationship, teasing him about his many “girlfriends,” while I occasionally get (dramatically) swooney over George C-c-c-clooney.

    • Poorly Behaved Résistanista

      Ho, there, as a woman over 50 I adhere to the notion of not having a relationship with a man younger than moi because women age differently than men, kind of a fact due the different hormones we embody, not even accounting for differences of societal acceptance of aging twixt the sexes, and who needs the fucking pressure?

      My best friend married a guy 9 years younger, and good on her, but I could not do it. It takes all my exquisite spiritual maturity to groove on all the myriad aspects of aging, but if I had to look at a guy a decade younger, when I’m fixing to turn 60, well, it would be one fucking cross to bear I could do without.

      FYI, I’m into biological and neurological and hormonal realities as being the driving forces behind a lot of societal norms so I’m kinda in the camp of not wanting to be a fish swimming against a hard-wired current, because swimming, in and of itself, is hard, and tiring, at the best of times.

  • Vagenda and Pee-ara

    From Charles Pierce (aka Donna Rose’s babysitter): “The hitching post was a penal innovation popular in Alabama around the time Sessions was attorney general of that state. From a 1997 New York Times account:

    Prisoners testified that, in the broiling heat of Alabama’s summers, the damp cold of its winters and rain in all seasons, they have stood shackled for as long as seven hours to the chest-high horizontal bars that they call the ”hitching post.” Often they were deprived of food, water, and the opportunity to use a toilet, prisoners said. ”They had me chained, hitched up to the hitching rail like I was a dog,” an inmate, Michael Askew, testified last year in hearings on a lawsuit to ban the devices.
    (Alabama fought for the hitching post all the way up to the Supreme Court where it lost, 6-3, in a case called Hope v. Pelzer. Clarence Thomas’s dissent was one of the low points of his career.)”

    If I hadn’t read this myself, I would have assumed the person telling me there was a “whipping post” was a big fat liar.

        When I read it, I rubbed my eyes, because Alabama was defending it up until NINETEEN NINETY SEVEN!!!!!!! I thought it happened in 1947.

        I don’t think Broad is a Dominionist.

      • Anna Rompage

        Remember when Leia sent the message to Obi Wan that he was their only hope, DeVos is the opposite of that and would taint the charter school movement/grift for a whole generation at least…

      • Juan de Fuca

        I’m supportive of charter schools. Am also vehemently against DeVos. As in, if there is one person who get denied, let it be Betsy DeVos.

      Excellent! 2 republicans also said they would vote no on her which right now would make it 50/50 so Pence would be tie-breaker. Needs 1 more republican with a conscience!! (I know, I know)

    You know what I’m so close to losing what little sanity I have from Republicans claiming anything other than wholeheartedly embracing fascism is just completely political (and remember, a Senator’s job is to be political and represent their base).

    • Jennifer R

      You are fully encouraged to call them Collaborators at this point.

      • IOnlyLikeCats

        Thanks, I’ll definitely use that.

    • Poorly Behaved Résistanista

      Exactly! There’s this shit going on in the NYT in competing articles about whether or not it is a good idea to have a March for Science. The dissenters says it would be bad to politicize science. Are you fucking kidding me? I’m pretty damned sure science has been politicized by, you know, Politicians. Fuck!

      My favorite scene from “Band of Brothers”:
      They are being trucked down the road, after the end of the war past thousands of disarmed German soldier sPOW’s marching the other way:
      Paraphrased: ” We were dragged from our homes for this? You sorry servile pieces of shit! What was this all for?!!”
      The very real, now apparent difference between the two parts of our society: Authoritarianism and Servility.
      The right craves a strong man to keep their every day lives in order..and decree who is… the other.
      Have long said: Republicanism isn’t an ideology..it is a disease….an actual mental illness. Bent solely to drag us down into the abyss.

      They intend to destroy the EU, because, WWI & II were Good Times.

            I don’t think that’s true, but that’s just me assuming.

            Do you have any data?

          • Poorly Behaved Résistanista

            Data? Haha, I am a lazy, drunk, librul,so, no, not so much, but isn’t it generally accepted that the oldz are more conservative than the youngz?

            Especially when one takes into account how many of the previously thoughtful oldz have had their brainz eaten by Fox Newz?
