a rambling pastiche of slogans and internet memes written by a mentally ill individual– Tucker Carlson

May 18, 2022 § Leave a comment

Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host who
has been criticized for amplifying the
“great replacement theory” cited by the
suspect in the Buffalo massacre,
condemned the mass shooting on his
Monday broadcast. But he quickly
pivoted to attacking Democratic leaders
who, he said, used the event to “blame
those murders on their political
opponents.” Carlson called the suspect’s
letter “definitely racist, bitterly so,” but
argued that it was “not really political,”
but rather “a rambling pastiche of
slogans and internet memes” written by
a mentally ill individual.

His fifteen minutes has lasted far too long.

“He’s always been a parody of an ‘intellectual’ psychologist, dummies,” another said.

“because the program is really nice.” said the man with a gun.

Australia’s Shittiest Golf Gaff Person

May 16, 2022 § Leave a comment

Listening to Greg Norman it is easy to conclude that golf is fundamentally about money and that not much matters beyond that.

Suggesting we all make mistakes, while trying to brush off the murder in 2018 of dissident Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, was as crass a gaff as could be imagined.

But at its heart was a notion that it was more important to consider the £1.6bn of Saudi cash being ploughed into the sport through Norman’s LIV Golf Investments and how it is helping the Australian’s stated aim of “growing the game”.

There is nothing that the Saudis are unable to corrupt and seem to be intent on. The Saudis in Yemen are worse than the Russians in Ukraine. The Saudis war on the Yemeni people is based on a religious disagreement while the Russians are engaged in a form of self defense caused by US meddling in matters and places which have no real bearing on Americans in the US.

Obama described in verse

May 4, 2022 § Leave a comment

Obama should have gone ahead with his appointment, but we’ve already seen that he never missed an opportunity to back down.”

The defining summation of Barack Obama vis-a-vis the Republican Party (and right-wing policy generally), especially when it came to doing their dirtiest work for them by bashing the so-called “left wing” of his own Democratic Party. How quickly he went from “Hope” and “Change” to despair and the status quo. And with a Nobel Peace Prize for Endless War, too. The quintessential American example of:

Congenital Stockholm Syndrome

He started by giving up quickly,
Surrendering early his case.
He offered to kiss their asses.
Replying, they pissed in his face.

Their urine, he thought, tasted strangely;
Yet not at all bad to his taste.
He’d gotten so used to it, plainly.
Why let such a drink go to waste?

The people who voted in favor
Of him and his promise of “change”
Now see in his many betrayals
A poodle afflicted with mange.

Each time that the surly and crazy
Republicans out for his skin
Condemn him for living and breathing,
He graciously helps them to win.

He’ll turn on his base in an instant
With threats and disdain and neglect
While bombing some Muslims so Cheney
Might thrill to the lives that he’s wrecked.

A black man in love with apartheid
He offers his stalwart support
To Zionists and their extortion
With “More, please!” his only retort.

A masochist begging for beatings
Obama takes joy in abuse
Receiving just what he has asked for
Which makes him of no earthly use

The little brown men that he’s murdered
In homes far away from our land
Bring profits obscene to his backers
Who give him the back of their hand.

Obama seeks praise from the vicious
Republicans, no matter what.
He suffers, apparently, nothing
So much as his need to kiss butt.
