    And, in tandem a constant white background noise that dulls the senses and puts moral sensibilities to sleep.

    and as the GOP’s stock in trade it must be held to task for the heinous and evil results of it. The latest being another mass shooting whose perp was filled with racial animosities.

    Being forced to not speak the truth doesn’t make the truth go away. Covering truth with lies, doesn’t change it. It will always be true no matter what. We need to work to not be blinded by the lies. Some just don’t make the effort.

    This must be the book that went with Lalo Alcarez’s May, Fri 13th, 2022 political cartoon.

    Oopsie and Fox keep trying to blame BLM for the deaths and injuries during the Waukesha parade. Darrell Edward Brooks Jr. has a history of mental health problems and no insurance coverage to pay for treatment, per his mother.

    Maybe Oopsie can also repeat Ingraham’s claims that there wasn’t any hoarding during Trump’s term.

    I guess that someone has to play the fool. The GOP seems very good at it.

    Ten people were murdered in Buffalo, NY, yesterday while shopping for groceries. They were targeted because of the color of their skin. The racist pulling the trigger at the market on Saturday is 18 years old.

    When he was 13, he heard the President of the United States say that there were “…very fine people on both sides” at a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, where a clansman ran down a young woman.

    When Saturday’s gunman was 15 years old, another racist was charged with killing 22 people and injuring 26 others in an El Paso, Texas, Walmart in 2019. The gunman, in this case, posted an online document that referred to a “Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

    When Saturday’s gunman was 17 years old, Tucker Carlson did shows about White Replacement Theory on his Fox News show. Furthermore, Carlson is far from the only Fox personality to stoke white rage.

    A significant portion of the Right and Right-Wing Media is stoking white rage and hate to gain wealth and power. The byproduct of this hate is the triggering of angry, white young men who act on this inflammatory rhetoric. The bottom line is that there are at least ten families in Buffalo today whose world will never be the same because of one 18-year-old man who could acquire an assault rifle and who listened to the hate.

    I believe that humans have an innate need to feel superior to others. This is why we have sports, for example: my team can be national champs and I didn’t have to leave the couch, so I’m better than you. My church is better, my neighborhood is better, my alma mater is better…

    Therefore, there must be inferior people. And they must be bullied and punished for being inferior. It’s easier to identify them if they look different, act different, or go to a different house of worship.

    Many people learn to be polite and to be respectful, and suppress those impulses. Others choose to be more barbaric and cliquish. And this is the current base of today’s Republican party. Not every Republican is a racist, but almost all racists are Republicans, and the party’s outreach to them has been documented over several decades.

    So they’re pursuing their own version of CRT (Critical Replacement Theory)…

    White Replacement Theory is what motivated the 18 YO Buffalo shooter, who described himself as a white supremacist and anti-Semite. Gee, ’wonder where he got those ideas? Radicalized with violent hatred, similar to the same crap ISIS terrorists are subjected to. Just ask fTucker Carlson how that works, shall we?

    Meanwhile, FOX “News” host Jon Scott, who had previously anointed Kyle Rittenhouse as a “hero” for killing BLM protesters, seemed to be absolving the Buffalo shooter, saying he thought the shooter’s brain “wasn’t fully formed”, or “maybe he had mental issues”.

    After realizing that attacking a community gay pride event with a bunch of gun-toting bikers might not be the best PR, the far-right Idaho bikers club “Panhandle Patriots” backed off a little when they told a Talibangelical group they still intended to “go head to head” with the annual Pride in the Park gathering in Coeur d’Alene on June 11, but had changed their confrontation from “Gun d’Alene” to “North Idaho Day of Prayer.”

    But they still said the LGBTQ community are all pedophilic “groomers”. “We’re going after the groomers,” said vice president Justin Allen told the Talibangelicals. “I am not a violent man. But I am not a peaceful man, either.”

    Stop replying directly to the reTuglican swines like Rickets, Oopsie, and others. They’re simply wanking it to get attention. Don’t give them any help. That’s just icky.

    As to the “fake news” about the white racist POS that shot up a grocery store, just what is the fake part? The asshole had a racist epithet on his rifle. He was still ranting about racist BS after his arrest. He studied other racist attacks and left digital fingerprints all along the way. If that’s fake news do all y’all racist fools still think Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols didn’t bomb the Murrah Building? Think there’s no white racists or white domestic terrorists? Think that white supremacists didn’t blow up a church and kill little black girls so many years ago? Or are all y’all just waiting for your chance with your racist baited breath?

    Enlighten us all. Just don’t try to en-whiten us all.

    I see the usual suspects just couldn’t wait for the lying toons tomorrow regarding the Buffalo moron. Just gotta blame Trump, Fox & the NRA for it. Seems fair since I blame Brandon, MSNBC & CNN for Crime, Inflation, Border, Fentanyl, BLM, Gas Prices, Afghanistan, Ukraine & Taco Bell. This mass shooting won’t change any minds about Americas criminal justice or gun control, after all it happened in Gun Free New York where they have had strict gun laws since the 30’s and lax penalties for crazy talk for decades. That POS shooter should be dead by Summer, he did it there is no doubt put him against the same wall as Parade killer, the Martin Bros & Subway terrorist shooting Buffalo boy with Black killers & terrorist seems fair and get it over with. Do the world a favor.

    @Clay: There has to be a ’toon in this story.

    Melania Trump teases second term as first lady in first interview since leaving White House

    The former first lady has designed and put up for sale on her personal website several non-fungible tokens, which are digital collectibles authenticated by the blockchain that is often a piece of digital art. All of the items Trump is selling can only be purchased via cryptocurrency, and the first lot of items put up for sale earlier this year failed to reach its desired monetary threshold of “$250,000 for an opening bid”.

    With all the violence, hate and treason going on in America, GOP WILL NEVER GET IT,

    Reason being:

    They would lose too much bribe money from big businesses, Pharm, NRA, Monsanto, etc, etc, etc.

    It’s all about money

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
