Does it violate Godwin’s Law when you’re talking about actual neo-Nazis?

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a moron in possession of a single idea, need only repeat it over and over for others to see it’s true. Or at least that’s the principle our deleted commenters seem to operate on, as we learned from “True Blue DIO,” one of the visitors to our story on Sarah Palin retweeting a not-veiled neo-Nazi reference. “True Blue DIO” had a really important question for us all, because he was here to wake us out of our sheeplish stupor:

uh…whats wrong with being a National Socialist again?

After a few Wonkers took the time to point out that you really can say quite a few things about the ideology of national socialism, our visitor encouraged us to learn more about it, because as everyone who’s ever come to Jesus after reading a Chick Tract knows, all that’s needed to change your life is exposure to the right ideas. Or the far-right ideas, like those found at the 4chan board /pol/ (for “politically incorrect”), the home of all those nice young folks who dream of a white homeland, masturbate to anime, and yell at their mothers to make them another sammich:

If you don’t know what /pol/ is then take a trip to 4chan dear friend maybe you will be redpilled like the others

Yes, so powerful is the truth of their memes that all you need to do is visit, and you will surely see the power of white supremacy and memes. He really was a boring little troll, but the dumbfuck confidence of that invitation is really something to behold. Or maybe that’s the joke. They just work on so many levels, they do. “True Blue DIO” didn’t say much else worth noting — this is a guy whose wit runs to stuff like this:

Yes because less IQ is bad and white people are evil isn’t that right fellow Jews embrace white geno…i mean “diversity”

Can’t you just see how going to read a lot MORE stuff like that would open your eyes to the truth? Have to say, though, he did manage to make a stupid Nazi argument we hadn’t seen before: Trans people (at least white ones) are race traitors because they aren’t fulfilling their biological destiny and producing white babies, thus “putting their race at risk,” which is the real reason he finds trans people “degenerate.” See how much more sophisticated that is than just admitting he’s freaked out by nonbinary gender categories?

That Sarah Palin thing really brought out some winners, like “Coach Don,” who explained to us that we’re just nuts, talking about some kind of supposed neo-Nazi code stuff:

I consider myself well read, but this whole 14 words and 88 is some real tin foil hat stuff.

Someone is going off the deep end here and it isn’t Palin.

Obviously, if you’ve never heard of a thing, then it’s not real, and some crazy site like the ADL is making up crazy conspiracy theories, too. Crom knows neo-Nazis themselves don’t fetishize their “14 words” and “88” number magic.

Crazy liberals! Where would they ever get such nutty notions? Then again, perhaps we’re just not “Coach Don’s” cup of Fanta; his only other comment at Wonkette was a simple “Not sure how I found my way to this website, but it’s a real loser.” We’ll miss him, too.

We also heard, entirely too much, from “ID Required,” who commented on the Sarah Palin story and several others before the banhammer fell, and who changes his username as often as a blogger changes his shirt — at least a couple times a week. Since visiting us as “ID Required,” he’s also been “No Blank Checks” and “Uncle Moneybags Sam.” His email address is “deconstructingamerica”@[redacted]. We think he’s trying to make some kind of point there, although it’s hard to tell from the stuff he actually writes, like this funny, funny joke about the Trumps at the G-20:

They were going to take Melania to the new climate control center but the antifa blocked her in. Opps,

Silly Europeans, with your unscientific belief in “climate control” and your violent leftists, hahaha! As for the actual article about Sarah Palin, “ID Required” wasn’t impressed:

WOW,. What came first the looney left or the looney left media? This guy had nothing more to say than AAAAAGGGGGGG.

Guess he told us! not very articulately, but he definitely told us. He also had thoughts on Republican healthcare “reform,” although it’s possible none of this was intended as a factual statement:

  • Republicans had a plan and they’re sticking to it. Let Obamacare crash and burn, then let Phoenix insurane rise from the ashes. -OR- outlaw all insurance and let the free market determine health care costs, ……..like in the good old days, ……when America was Great.
  • All insurance is a scam. If it wasn’t for insurance, a doctor’s visit would cost. $ 20.00. Lile the good old days.
  • Hospitals are only good for getting sick.

Remember the good old days, before health insurance? Considering that employer-based insurance developed in response to wage and price controls during WW II, we bet “ID Required” doesn’t either, but maybe he also thinks people should pay for their chemotherapy by bartering chickens. Then again, why would you even need healthcare, since hospitals only make people sick?

“ID Required” had a lot more to say, but it was pretty repetitive stuff about how Hillary Clinton ran the most corrupt foundation in history and also only had a popular vote majority because of illegal aliens voting, so we won’t bother with it.

Our story about Rick Perry’s creative spin on how the law of supply and demand works — “you put the supply out there and the demand will follow” — wasn’t much appreciated by “MattS156,” who made a whole new Disqus account to tell us so:

Wow, a PhD who writes like a snarky teenager. CNN could use this moron.

To which we can only reply, as did the great Roman rhetorician Seneca the Elder, “Neener, neener, neener.”

That thread also brought a brief return from Turgid Love Muscle Guy, this time under the name “TakeOutTheLiberalTrash.” We don’t usually mention TLM Guy here, because why reward attention-seeking behavior? But he has a couple of new hobby horses, so for tracking purposes, we figure we should probably document them. Here’s one zinger:

If a male Muslim terrorist blows himself up in a woman’s bathroom while eating a vegan snack, who do liberals side with?

Workshop notes: You’ve just thrown together a bunch of stuff that conservatives freak out about, but there’s only one person in your joke, making the “who do liberals side with” bit nonsensical (we certainly wouldn’t side with the vegan snack, because we’re MONSTERS). You need to have your scary trans strawperson blow up a Prius showroom, maybe.

The other new thing we noticed was that TLM Guy has found the real cause of all our nation’s immigration woes: the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which is why we don’t have nice white immigrants any more:

  • [Trump] won among real Americans. I don’t consider those who immigrated under the 1965 Immigration Act to be real Americans.
  • I’m denying that most non-whites can ever assimilate into what America is. Some, like Nikki Haley and Clarence Thomas can, but most cannot.
  • Almost all non-whites (other than descendants of black slaves) immigrated under the 1965 Immigration Act.

He must have read an article. Also, when someone berated him for cheating on Wonkette by copy-pasting his tirades at The Atlantic, he explained his modus operandi, since we probably could never have figured out ourselves:

troll any site that uses Disqus. There’s plenty to go around for everyone.

Good to know. We have to admit to a certain awe at TLM Guy, who may be one of the most prolific (if repetitive) non-bot commenters on the interwebs — he has hundreds of Disqus accounts to post the same tired stuff from, and as far as we can tell, does it without automation, manually copy-pasting his self-created rants every single time. You sort of wonder what he thinks he’s accomplishing, and how long he spends each day at this. Turgid Love Muscle Guy, drop us an email — we’re sure you have a spare account — at doktorzoom at-sign wonkette dot com, so we can arrange an interview.

And finally, in the comments thread attached to our story on how Barack Obama ruined Donald Trump’s hotel reservations for the G20 (but seldom about the story), we heard from “Whodis Penny,” who has many thoughts on many things. A sampling:

  • healthcare has become unaffordable to many more millions because of inflated costs and astronomical deductibles, all because grifters need more handouts, here’s an idea, let the free market take care of itself
  • you are totally clueless about the costs/increases which puts you in the handout category, they/you are the only ones happy with this healttcare scam
  • this is nothing but a wealth distribution plan for more gubmint handouts. period/li>
  • ask anyone who actually pays for their own insurance about the increases, not the freeloaders who pay nothing. how have rebubs done anything, there have been zero votes for or against this monstrosity, it’s failing on its own. that’s why insurance companies are bailing.
  • if you this h/c was unaffordable before the obamacare debacle, what do you call increases of over 200% and more. this thing is a joke and is why insurance companies all over the country are dropping out . you are totally clueless like every other gibsmedat loser.
  • hey, look who’s not president, hillary clinton the murderer
  • indoctrinated zombie
  • poor poor snowflake, say this with me, President Donald J. Trump
  • violence and threats of same are not free speech. it is a fascist tactic used by dems to quell the opposition, and i’ll take baltimore as my burning city for $1000 alex.
  • Clueless as usual, try googling voter fraud, see what pops up then get back at me about shit that did or didn’t happen, libs just talk out of their ass all day, it’s truely unbelievable
  • sorry i don’t listen to national panhandler radio

Did you see what he did in that last post, there? Haw Haw. Gotta like a guy who urges people to uncritically accept whatever they find on Google about voter fraud — all of it, we guess?– but won’t look at a link from NPR, because that’s biased.

Also, he had thoughts on Barack Obama, but they are not racist thoughts, because Barack Obama is the REAL racist:

  • the racist community organizer owns nothing, all he ever did or tried to do is destroy the US.
  • it was more of his policies then his color
  • there was nothing in the law that says [frozen Iranian assets] had to be given back. the closet muslim (and gay) gave it to his buddies to help fund terrorism

That’s some pretty compelling thinking on the Iran nuclear agreement — hey, maybe we could have gotten a nuclear deal with Iran that didn’t involve releasing the aassets frozen since the Shah’s overthrow! Trump coulda made them accept that! (If he paid them enough…) Unfortunately, after proving with such impeccable facts and logic that he had very well-founded reasons to disagree with Barack Obama, poor “Whodis Penny” let this slip:

elect a nigger and expect a ghetto, that’s how this word play works right???

So, yeah, he seems nice. But at least he called us snowflakes and assumed the words “President Donald Trump” would throw us into a tizzy of despair, because magic words really do have great power, so on the whole, we’d have to say he won. In fact, we need to go find a safe space now. Maybe a nice place that serves bagels and has wifi.

    • ahughes798

      The good ‘ol days? I remember in my 58 years, people who had polio. And died of Diptheria. I almost died of German Measles. Those good ‘ol days? When women largely went to college to get their Mrs. degrees? Or the Vietnam era good ‘ol days, when we sent young men to die in a war that didn’t need to be fought, and lost, anyway? Everybody has their own idea of when the good ‘ol days were.

      • Incoming Ham

        Exactly. It was likely written by some 28-35 year old who has no context nor wants to educated themselves to find some lest it burst the bubble.

      • Eo Raptor

        Generally agree, except for the idea that we lost in Viet Nam. Take a look at any YouTube video that shows Hanoi — I particularly like the couple of flashmob videos. Once you see those videos, you are almost forced to think that maybe we won after all.

        • ahughes798

          True. I was just thinking of all the times I’ve been told that we lost in Viet Nam, because of all the hippies who were against the war.

    • Komsumverweigerer Ron

      Also, I note that that $20 visit might not get you any actual effective doctoring. There’s a reason life expectancy has almost doubled in the space of a century or so.

      • Nockular cavity

        Hey, $20 paid for a lot of leeches in the old days.

    • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

      Back in the day, a new automobile could be bought outright for about a hundred and fifty dollars, so yeah, inflation.

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        You know, for the longest time I was sure it was a male-type creature. But as I re-examine the evidence (for which I will need a shower) I see that it’s wearing a necklace, and I’m almost convinced that, considering the company it keeps, a necklace on a man would be a transgression of epic proportions, ergo, maybe it’s a female. However, as with all such trash, I’m perfectly willing to ignore gender in favor of simply using “it.”

        • nightmoth

          Good point. A lot depends on the pendant of said necklace. It resembles an arrowhead, and the male of this species can be sentimental about dead Indian warriors, despite its ancestors part in making them dead.

      • ziggywiggy

        I’m thinking woman actually wearing a bra, notice the indentation on her side… that’s caused by a bra strap cutting into the flab.

        • Opalescent Riddles

          Oh, OK, I should have read further downthread before commenting myself, but glad to see someone else of similar opinion.

      • Opalescent Riddles

        There are multiple shoulder straps visible, which methinks would be out of place for a male in this context. Underarm torso fat folds suggest a bra of some sort. Facial proportions are consistent with XY but not in themselves conclusive.

    • Pax Americana Per Ars Smith

      I’ve always wondered, but been afraid to ask. Is second from the left a woman?

      • nightmoth

        Same here. We had a little debate about it the last time this was posted and could not come to a conclusion.

        • Mysterious Masked Wrestler

          I’m 100% sure this is a woman. Notice the hair is short in the front, but longer in the back? Obviously a man *could* do that, but in that company? Plus the necklace, the straps… What you can see of the face is more womanly than manly, also.

          I bet she blames blacks for her dirty ass wifebeater.

      • Little Lulu Ω

        I’m going with the idea that this large person is a woman because of the necklace, which might have been an unlikely choice for a man; not because some klansman wouldn’t wear a necklace – many probably do – but because a man who looked like this who’s wearing a necklace might be mistaken for a woman frequently enough that it would be humiliating to him. And sociopaths can’t handle humiliation.

    “All insurance is a scam. If it wasn’t for insurance, a doctor’s visit would cost. $ 20.00. Lile the good old days.”

    Sure, I remember back when you got cancer, you used to go in to a hospital, where you got a bed and a bed pan. Now we’ve got all these pricey pharmaceuticals and machines, and technology and robots that are really expensive, that are designed to keep elderly Republicans alive forever. I say we go back to letting old Republicans drop dead as God intended them to do at the age of 55, and we’ll only charge them $100 a night for their stay. The rest of us can all pay into a giant GoFundMe and take advantage of modern medicine and science.

    I actually know a very right wing Republican who thinks that churches can pay for everyone’s health care. When his 90 year old father was getting an operation, paid for by Medicare, of course, he said “well, he has to have that operation, because he’s in a lot of pain.” I guess the snowflakes fathers feel pain more than everyone else’s. I’m not sure why his church didn’t pay for the operation. I’d actually like to let these people live their libertarian dreams for about 6 months, when they’d all be begging to go back to “how things used to be.”

    • Serai 1

Oh, wait, I won’t be paying anything, because I’ll no longer be able to afford even that shitty insurance. Wow, what cost savings! Thanks, GOP!!!!

        When I was a teen in the DC area, we used to call the ‘White Power Hotline’ and listen to Tuesday Summers giving out the ‘White Power Message’ for that day. It was almost a highlight of my day, getting baked and putting her on the speaker phone with friends, lol.

        Have a great day!

          We actually had one of those daily message numbers for the KKK in GA. We would laugh our asses off at the stupidity.

            Oh god, some of the messages were almost totally insane and we used to laugh about some of the quotes for days.

            Tuesday Summers’ voice reminds me of Tomi Lahren when she is in ‘cheerleader mode’.

            If any good came of that, it was that it allowed me to recognize many of the mindsets and ideology behind their propaganda descendants, the Trump era GOP.

      In all fairness, Coach Don may just be an old fashioned pedophile. Back in the day, I remember if you wanted to molest kids, one of the best professions for doing that was by becoming a coach. See: Sandusky, Jerry

        I can never look at Craig T. Nelson the same way again.

        “Youth Minister” is also a viable career option for the aspiring pedophile. Although nothing works quite as well as “Star of a TLC Series.”

        I bet Sandusky is kicking himself that he didn’t pitch a series: “Coach Jerry – Sixty Years and Counting!”

          Catholic priest is also a good old fashioned choice for pedophiles.

    • Panika MCD

      I believe there is a lot of research on the value of physical education and sportsballs in school. and in most places the coaches are required to teach a class. I had a great one for US History who did have a degree in the subject. likewise, my freshman English teacher was also too a coach who loved the subject. did I have some bad ones? yes, but it seemed they were the minority and the stereotype was made because they were the loudest–not the most common.

I remember when you could rent a one bedroom apartment in NYC for $500 a month. That house is now $800,000, the car is now $30,000 and the doctor’s visit is now $150. Oh, and my college tuition was $500 a semester, but the same school now charges $10,000 a semester. When is Trump going to fix all of this?

    *I remember going to the hospital when I was a kid, and my dad was smoking in the hospital, as were all the doctors.

      There was a fascinating (to me) documentary on Netflix for a hot minute about the history of medicine.

      I think the presenter (it was British), said a good surgeon could hack off a leg as pictured above in under 2 minutes.

      and, actually – slides glasses up nose – that painting is wrong. Apparently a doctor would take a big fat ass knife (like the one held by the dude to the left of the sawbones), give the patient something to bite down on, and do one long cut down to the bone around the circumference of the leg, THEN they got out the saw. (shudder).

        I forget the context of that exact sentence, but we had great fun with him.

        • Lori

          Black folks often do have lower IQ scores than white folks—because white folks write the test and, contrary to the intent of it’s creatures, IQ tests measure learned things, not innate capacity. How do you not know this in 2017? It’s not like we haven’t known and discussed it for a long time.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            had to be pedantic, but they don’t have lower IQ’s – they have lower IQ SCORES, which is what you’re saying. and even then, i don’t think it’s as simple as you’re making it. Assuming black folk do poorer cause white folk right the test is just as rascist, that somehow black and white folk think differently. There’s too many other factors, none of which are biological is my point.

            And i pointed out to troll that IQ was pretty meaningless.

            But thanks for assuming I’m stupid.

          • Lori

            I did not assume you’re stupid. When I asked how someone could fail to know about the problems with IQ tests I meant the troll, not you. I was using the word you in the way other languages use “one,” but US English generally doesn’t, not to mean you specifically,

            And I didn’t mean that the issue with white people writing the test was that black & white people think differently. What I meant was that they’re taught different things, often because of wealth-related disparities in education, and that causes enough issues with IQ tests that are culturally based (mostly related to examples used and how questions are asked), to skew the results.

            Is this the part where I’m supposed to thank you for assuming that I’m racist?

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Christian Republicans really do think that their ideologies of hate and other anti-American ideologies are in the “silent majority,” these filthy Christanic cultists right wing Republicans really do believe that theirs is the majority opinion.

    That’s Christianity under Republicanism. That’s why these shit hole Republicans commit treason against our country and then proclaim there’s nothing wrong with doing it against us.

    They seem to think that when they wave their KKK / Nazi / NRA / Confederate flags and “march” their Christanic Republicanism on our sidewalks by the dozen and get overwhelmed by hundreds or thousands of pro-American counter-protesters, that’s not a problem because the “silent majority” is “with us.”

I know there are those among us who like to engage a good troll and have a spirited tussle with it, but those trolls worth engaging have been few and far between lately. One (of many) virtue of the legendary Vegan Buttholes Yodel thread was its attraction to different and more varied trolls (albeit mostly of the concern type.)

    A nonpartisan, i.e. #FakeNews study was done about media bias. It found NPR to be pretty much in the middle. No left or right bias. But who cares. Wingnuts think fact checking in general is a left wing conspiracy. Fucking morans.

    • Three Finger Salute

      And even they closed their peanut gallery because they couldn’t stop the same wingnuts from crowding the place and posting their BS. The argument about being a tax-funded organization and therefore having an obligation to host everyone’s crap doesn’t fly, because why should the civilized readers foot the bill for the morans to have a platform where they can harass people and groups?

      NPR ditched comments, PBS ditched comments, BBC ditched comments, I believe most other national broadcasters have ditched comments. Even private ones have, like CBS/ABC/NBC and various newspapers and magazines.

      One glaring outlier that hasn’t is CBC, which harbors one of the worst cesspools of online hate among any major media organization in the world. The video of Justin hugging a plush unicorn was a promo for a children’s show, and still attracted the usual torch-and-pitchfork gang of thugs from Deplorebel Media and r/metacanada (which itself has taken over Reddit’s main r/canada sub and is pretty much generally reflective of Reddit as a whole).

      It’s doubtful they will, what with a 9/12 Crapper majority on the board of directors right now, but they need to follow the same lead as the BBC and our (partially public but mostly Koch-supported) PBS and NPR. There is no reason whatsoever why Canadian taxpayers should have their Elizabeths and Violas subsidizing Rebel Media’s loonies.

  • MilwaukeeKent

    OT: This is why I support Sanctuary Cities. Two cops just came to our door, seeking witnesses to a vehicle hit and run in the area at 7:15 this morning. Turns out a car hit a pedestrian. This neighborhood is 75-80 percent Hispanic. I don’t want a crime like that to go unsolved just because some family has Uncle Jose living there and his papers are iffy and they won’t even answer the door if it’s police.

    • SisterArtemis

      Most of the dedicated officers I know or have seen/read interviewed are on this same page: their jobs, if they perform as actual servants to the public, are compromised if people won’t talk to them or aren’t viewing themselves as members of our communities. They don’t want to have doors literally shut in their face, let alone the job of harassing and arresting undocumented folks.

      • ahughes798

        I think a good way to get cops more in touch with, and able to relate to, the communities they serve, is to get them out of their cars and walking beats again. I grew up in a far western suburb of Chicago, and in the 60’s we had cops walking beats. I knew the local cops, and they knew us. Made it easier to tell who the good ones were, and the ones to avoid, at least.

      • Riley Whodat Venable

        I have cousins who are New Orleans and Jefferson Parrish Cops. Sanctuary Cities may be outlawed, but most street cops still carry a pocket full of “Get Out of Jail Free” cards.

  • Three Finger Salute

    99% of comment sections are unmoderated crap. Rarely if ever does anything good come of them. You go over to YouTube, and a video about kittens frolicking in a field of daisies is flooded with “Osama Hussein is a N”, “Killary is a c**t,” “Justine Truvada is a f*gg*t cuck,” “HAIL TRUMP #MAGA” and other such BS. Never mind the videos that actually have said individuals featured in them. “Outsourcing” moderation to A.I. isn’t going to do a damn thing. The very concept of a commenting system is defective by design, because moderation doesn’t scale. It has to go. YouTube and the major news organizations around the world need to get rid of their peanut galleries BTL. Facebook, Reddit and Twitter can’t be redeemed, because their very setup is that of a gigantic peanut gallery. Shut them down.

    I think of Silicon Valley as the equivalent of fossil fuel companies which need to be heavily regulated to stop them from dumping sludge and toxic waste into our natural environment. Silicon Valley needs the whip cracked over it to stop them from dumping sludge and toxic waste into our social, emotional and psychological environments. We need a Fairness Doctrine for the Internet and perhaps, yes, a system of global governance and anti-hate laws like Europe and Canada have. Give Merkel the reins, and let her have carte blanche to shut Facebook down. I don’t care. Zuck is a complete idiot if he doesn’t think that he’s enabling the next Pepe fan to throw him in the camps. Facebook is harboring snuff films via their live-streaming of murders and suicides as it is.

    We know now that Russian trolls deviously and expertly hacked the one thing that couldn’t be effectively monitored or guarded against: not ballots, not the voting machines, but the hearts and minds of the American populace. Russia preyed upon and exploited Americans’ “preexisting condition” of misogynistic and racist hatred for Obama, Hillary, and the Democrats’ “coalition of the ascendant” to create a perfect storm of Pepe memes and “spirit cooking” conspiracies that led to enough people coming out in droves to elect Trump. CNN even reported on Pepe; that’s how badly this insane asylum of hashtag-driven fake news has influenced the “mainstream media.” And it all gets allowed under the guise of “free speech.” No, no more. There’s no good words on that board. Fuck it, shut it down, and do it live!

    • Persistent Demme

      I know that nothing I say will matter, but I must protest your use of “Silicon Valley” as representing the root of all evil.
      Over-generalizations about the entire “valley” do a dis-service to your arguments.

      • Three Finger Salute

        OK, what would a better catch-all or shorthand term be for the Internet industry harboring the tech titans who’ve created this monster? Sometimes I call them GRIFT (Google, Reddit, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter), but that’s not a widely-used term, and only includes the Big Five, not the facilitators of the ubiquitous hardware being used to let everyone and their idiot brothers access it en masse (Apple; Amazon; Microsoft technically isn’t in California, although the PC manufacturers are). Or the startups encroaching on other analog industries who’ve also unleashed the same culture onto everything from transport (Uber) to shared housing arrangements (AirBnB) to even dating services.

        I’d be open to suggestions for a different turn of phrase that captures what it is I’m trying to target. Texas Instruments makes calculators, which unless you throw one at someone can’t really harm a person otherwise. And as such doesn’t reflect the regressive culture of the state’s GOP-majority government that seeks to harm women and minorities. But there seems to be something in the water in “the Valley” (or whatever a better word is for it), and the companies headquartered there, that’s foisted the complete opposite of “peace and love” onto society as a whole.

        • Persistent Demme

          I lived in the valley, and am now in SF, and the water here is fine.
          Mr. Demme and I have been together for over 30 years.
          The whole time, he has worked in this industry.
          There are idiots, (Peter Thiel comes to mind), but most are good people.
          Maybe this is why you cannot find the all-encompassing term you seek.
          Maybe this world is not black and white.

          • Three Finger Salute

            The co-founder of Twitter made a nonpology about social media being partially responsible for the trolling epidemic that led to the rise of Trump. Yet gave no answers as to what could or should be done about it, and basically just shrugged. I don’t remember this sort of thing proliferating on such a grand scale the way it does now when I was younger, and I do remember a time before the Internet even existed and computers were just used in schools to play Oregon Trail. I had a Mac at home too, but we never had a modem hookup, which meant I missed out on BBSes and IRC.

            It can’t only be the anonymity by this point, otherwise people wouldn’t feel empowered enough to make YouTube videos with their real identities showing and generate their own cults of personality, like Richard Spencer and Milo and the Rebel Media gang have. Spencer has his own rallies; Milo goes on Bill Maher and gets speaking engagements at colleges, Lauren Southern trolled a rape-survivors’ event, and Ezra Levant once had his own cable network, while one of his cohorts is actually the campaign manager for the leader of Canada’s Conservative Party! Eerily echoing the onetime washed-up sitcom producer turned CEO of a onetime nothingburger wingnut blog Steve Bannon’s too-close-for-comfort association with the world’s #1 most notorious D-list Internet troll who has access to the world’s #1 nuclear arsenal.

            How did this hate get mainstreamed? It has to be the lack of responsible enforcement of basic civility, with consequences backing up rules. Twitter should have banned Trump while they had the chance. None of them are redeemable. Maybe GRIFT is a better word to use than the all-encompassing “Valley,” with an explanation of the acronym specifically applied to the major players enabling the trolletariat today. Social media created these monsters, and a cleanup of social media is what it’s going to take to rein them in.

          • Persistent Demme

            I understand the frustration with hate and trolls, because I’m frustrated too.
            Know that there are a lot of people here that are working on balancing “freedom of speech” issues as well as others (such as women-in-tech), but there could always be more.
            All I can tell you is that this area voted overwhelmingly for Hillary, and my neighborhood in SF voted over 90% for her.

Yeah, you may not like the ideas being promulgated on it, but fight against it with more speech, not suppression because how the hell are you ever going to control the suppressors.

      Comments on YouTube, as they do on Yahoo News, are quickly flushed into a vast digital sewer, never to be seen again. The fact that some keyboard-pounding dumbfuck thinks his mental masturbation is making a difference, doesn’t make it true.

    • ahughes798

      I use Facebook to keep in touch with friends, share pictures with family, share memes I find funny, etc. I’ve gotten in contact with some old friends who I’d lost touch with. So, fuck taking Facebook down. One can use media for good or evil, it’s one’s own choice. You don’t like it, don’t use it. This is a First Amendment issue. Facebook is a very good way to keep track of actual dangerous ideas and people, too.

      • JMP

        That, and he loves showing up in comments to articles that are several days old, which I guess is how he’s avoided getting banned so far.

    I’m older than dirt ( I come here to feel young again), and I remember a time with no health insurance. My father never had it. My mother eventually did through her employer (yes, Virginia, mothers did indeed used to work for a living if they didn’t reside on television) in the middle ’50s. My grandmother who lived with us was never covered by anything until she had to apply for the new Medicaid thing in 1969. It was hard not to have coverage, and I would bet my next SS check, that the loudest complainer about coverage would be howling and gnashing his/her teeth if no kind of coverage were available to them.

    • Yr. Gma

    • kareemachan

      Neo-Nazis combine the number 14 with 88, as in “14/88” or “1488” with the 8’s representing the eighth letter of the alphabet (H), with “HH” standing for “Heil Hitler”.[8][9] Lane used 88 to refer to his 88 Precepts with “14-88” representing “14 Words and 88 Precepts” which were part of the Wotansvolk movement he founded.[citation needed] The pairing of “14” and “88” has since been used by other white supremacists, including murderers Dylann Roof[10] and Curtis Allgier.[7]
      Allgier has “14” and “88” tattooed on his forehead above and to the
      sides of the words “skin” and “head” above his eyes in his mugshot
      (right).[7] The numbers also figured prominently in the Barack Obama assassination plot in Tennessee,[11] which was intended to kill 88 African-Americans, including President Obama, 14 of whom were to be beheaded.

      It’s real to these people.

    So much stuff!
    There is the ‘stop white genocide by having lots of white, Aryan babies’ in an era where climate change is trying to kill the infection of so many people (a comparison to yeast cultures or to Independence Day aliens – but overpopulation is a real problem. For real world examples, see rodents in Australia – or any other invasive species anywhere) so having as many babies as possible seems like the retro-virus path to genocide for the entire human race, along with a lot of other species.
    Then there’s ‘why do we even need insurance?’ from someone who has got to be on Medicaid (or is surprisingly healthy) in order to have the attitude that medical care is cheap. Remember when insurance started? Yeah, me neither, because the way I heard it insurance started by villages getting together in, maybe, Medieval Europe and put together funds to bring in a doctor and keep him on retainer for the whole village. Mr. Javadavis remembers when Kaiser Permanente was set up that way (in the 60s, maybe) where insurance paid the regular salaries of doctors and they would just take care of anyone who came in with the insurance.
    Huh – I’m gloomy today. I guess it is that ‘climate warming will probably kill 97% of the biosphere’ article that I got to from here (another comment thread, though) Side note – those vegans who claim the vegan diet is better for the planet don’t have the geologist view. The planet will be fine. The biosphere, now, that is a different issue.

      Do these whiners understand that Caucasians are still a majority in this country? That most of the top corporations and banks in this country have Caucasian CEOs? Yeah, I didn’t think so. These snowflakes’ fee-fees are easily bruised if they see a Person of Color in charge of something because it must mean, in their stupid, small rat-brains, that a Caucasian didn’t get that job. These people should be picked up and shipped off to an island far, far away from the USA, so they can have their own society. They would probably die off because they are too stupid to live.

      • javadavis

        I’ve been thinking about some of this, in regards to the people all upset because someone, for example, stars in a movie and the star is not white and male. Oh, the horror! Only males can time travel! How would they have survived if they were born not-white and not-male and never saw a movie lead that was them? I guess, assimilate? A la Clarence Thomas or Ann Coulter? Or go make their own movies, maybe, like Ed Wood. (look up Glen or Glenda for some fun scenes)

    • gene108

      Having a lot of babies, coupled with decent medical care that reduces maternal and infant mortality rates, is really what’s driving population growth.

      Take one of these things out of the equation and population growth will subside.

      I am not sure which one the white genociders are willing to give up.

      • ooooo but I am totally down with countering their anti healthcare stupidity with “why do you hate white babbies!!!!” or their white babbies stupidity with “Great, so you support the ACA!”

        None of them, Katie.
        They want it all.
        For those who are actually claiming biblical reasons for having lots of kids to subjugate the earth, they should all try actually growing a garden. Let those weeds and insects take over the first year and consider the REAL meaning of stewardship. Then reconsider overruning the earth with more and more people.

        I remember seeing reports that birth rates go down in countries where health care has reduced infant mortality. I don’t remember seeing anything about birth rates going down in countries where normal (middle class, working class, like that) people are not condemned to an old age full of loneliness and poverty if they didn’t have enough kids to take care of them.
        Sometimes I come across something that looks like an explanation for the ridiculous resistance to birth control (including abortion, which was finally, recently, legalized in Ireland, FFS) but I don’t remember what the last one was.

        • Maureen

          She is as big a grifter as the rest of the Kardashians. But republican on top of it.

          • AnnieGetYerFun

            Worse. The Kardashians have only ever stood for money. They don’t pretend to be something they’re not.

          • AnnieGetYerFun

            Quick follow-up: by “something they’re not”, I mean that’s she’s not a representative of the trans and queer community.

          • Maureen

            Yes.

    • doktorzoom

      Oh, definitely. As are all who fail to have as many white babbies as possible. As well as the 99 point something percent of us who want nothing to do with Nazis.

      • Bad Tom

        My brother and sister-in-law also can’t have a baby, and really don’t want one. By this cray-cray logic, they are also traitors to their race.

        So, good people!
        ——-
        I like babbies. We need them. They are sweet and innocent, and they inspire (in me) feelings of protectiveness and warmth.

        But, for me and my husband, it’s better if other people have the babbies.

        • The Flaming Carrot

          I had a babbie once. She smelled good. Still does (to me, anyhow).

          • Angry Red Bird DGAF

            You must be French. You spelled babby with an “ie”.

          • Bad Tom

            Or, at the outside limit of possibility, a devoted reader of Wonkette.

    • Michael Lindsay

      Childless whites, oh cripes, childless white couples? Worse *shiver, abomination* lesbians with children!!!

    • Angry Red Bird DGAF

      What they want is for you to marry a woman you don’t love and force yourself to have a child with her while remaining married, for appearances.

      • Bad Tom

        And teach that child that a loveless life is normal.
        That is evil.

    • wavicles

      Yes… why won’t you stop?

      • Bad Tom

        Because I’m GAY. And I don’t want kids.

  • amindofitsown

    Now that “redpilling” is old enough to move out on its own, can we finally let it out to pasture?

    • But they won’t leave the actual basement!

      • Jason Friedman

        That pill mustuh been something else

    • DesertedPictures

      Yes pleae! I always forget what pill is what. And even asking about it gets them in angry rant mode…

      • The Flaming Carrot

        It depends. In the U.S., the red pill turns you into a Republican. In the UK, it turns you into either Plaid Cymru or Labour Party.

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        It’s not so much the color of the pill, but how you insert it.

      • Serai 1

        Blue pill = dream
        Red pill = wake up

        How one interprets that is a different matter, of course.

  • They really have a weird thing with magic words.
    I blame Disney.

  • Nick.Trite

    I still can’t handle the fact that 4chan, my collegehood meme source, is basically a political party. This all happened because of the scientology bullshit didn’t it. Taught 4chan’s biggest idiots how to organize

    • DesertedPictures

      Remenber when internet-smart people seemed to be the good guys? When wikileaks worked with respectible newspapers and anymous went after horrible rape-apology-towns.

      What happened?

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        I remember when Craigslist was just in the SF Bay area and I could find men to date ONLINE who were crazy, but not racist.

    • Serai 1

      I don’t know. They were assholes long before that.

  • Ilgattomorte

    Actually guys, don’t repeat the words “President Donald Trump”. It’s a trick!

    If you say “President Donald Trump” 3 times into a mirror, your hair will turn to straw, your butt will grow to 4 times its size, your penis will shrink to the size of an acorn (If you have a penis, otherwise you don’t even want to think about what will be grabbing you), and Jared Kushner will appear and make you take his advice.

    It’s too horrible to contemplate.

    • DesertedPictures

      So it’s a second rate Russian curse? Figures…

      • Invisible Bunyip

        Edmund: (reads) “Dear Enemy: I curse you, and hope that something slightly unpleasant happens to you, like an onion falling on your head.”
        Baldrick: Well, that is the bottom end of the market.

      Good God, what happens to your hands?

    I’m tired. May I sleep now?

  • Moar Wordz

    I noticed one of the DSFB’s can’t spell
    ” Healthcare. ”
    These type of trolls are often pathologically angered by idealogies that threaten their own. Very similiar to Ann Coulter – she mentions ” Brown People ” ( as if that were some how an accurate description of non-caucasian ) and ” Entitlements, ” ( SSD, SSDI, Food stamps, ” Welfare, “.) The entitlements enrage her the most.

    • The Flaming Carrot

      I noticed that none of the DSFB can punctuate. And one even spelled “oops” as “opps.” Unless he/she/ze was talking about Black Ops, which I think they often do.

    • Serai 1

      What I love about the epithet “brown people” is that it assumes that EVERYONE isn’t brown. Which we are. We’re all varying shades of brown, from very light to very dark. But the ball-clutching uber-whites can’t get their brains around that.

      • Moar Wordz

        No, they can’t. Ann Coulter has created a new racist lexicon where ” Brown people ” includes everyone non-white, as a catch-all , derogatory term.

  • The Flaming Carrot

    “We need to go find a safe space now.”

    I nominate the Vegan Butthole Restaurant.

  • BearLeft

    Truely.

  • AnnieGetYerFun

    I missed the discussion about the vegan snack and the Muslim terrorist, but I’m going to have to say that I side with the bathroom. Assuming it had vintage style tiling, anyway.
