Can this dumpster fire be put out?

Just a random collection of images from my stream this morning:

For whatever reason, refusing to wear a mask to protect others from disease
is now a key component of fascist political ideology
Unmasked fascist police escort masked fascist activists (styled “proud boys”) to disrupt children’s program at public library. Good thing it was daytime or they might also have made a bonfire of the books, because, why not? Click through for story.
Sitting Congressman commits sedition, blames intern, will totally get away with it. If you think he won’t, offer me a bet.
“We cannot possibly provide health care for our citizens;
it’s so hard!” says the richest country in the world.
You know it’s true: only 19 of the top 20
richest countries in the world have managed it.
Because every Rethuglican is suckling at the oil money teat, silly!

The USA, on its way to full-on genocidal fascism, is also taking time to get just plain meaner. At this point these questions are equally debatable in my mind: Can this country be saved? Should it be?

The Onion Gets the Story

‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens

And they run this story… over and over.

Now the shooters themselves are starting to be more explicit. This latest one, literally around the corner from my office, was explicitly and exclusively about race.

And directly echoing villains like Tucker Carlson, or Elise Stefanik, whose exercise in stochastic terrorism would land them in jail if the “justice” system here weren’t such a joke.

Rollerball or Hunger Games?

Which is closer to this?

Known as the “Wildest Show in the South”, inmates compete for cash during “Convict Poker” in the Angola Prison Rodeo in Angola, La., Sunday, April 24, 2022. The last inmate seated wins cash. This is the first rodeo at Angola since the COVID shutdown two years ago. (AP Photo/Ted Jackson)

I have so many questions about this.

  • Why are none of the contestants white?
    • oh… Louisiana. never mind.
  • Why do they have helmets?
    • Seriously, would racists not be even more entertained at the sight of the convicts’ brains being splattered on the ground?
    • oh… they want this to be a family show. ok, helmets for the “players” and there better not be an uncovered nipple of any female.
  • How will we know when this country has no remaining shred of its alleged founding principles intact?
    • It never had.

Delicate Flowers

I would love to report that this is a parody.

I really would.

You Matter

In a verdict that is equally parts utterly shocking and utterly expected, a twit from Illinois had his mommy drive him to Kenosha, Wisconsin to shoot some black people. He was ceremonially arrested for this escapade, everyone knowing there would be no real consequences because of his melanin deficiency.
