I could run it through the Dilectizer and make it Swedish Chef!

Or could just google Liberty University.

Because I'm good with computers.

Anyhoo. I don't know what works in Europe and what don't. Try:

In the category of no shit, I guess this is stupid because it demolishes any façade the Republicans may have tried to maintain regarding their disdain for voting rights, especially among groups that are likely to vote Democrat.

Trump says Democrats’ push for expanded voting threatens Republicans

Quote:
Trump said that Democrat-proposed voting reforms to the $2.2 trillion rescue package passed last week by Congress — which were largely cut from the deal — would have led to “levels of voting, that if you ever agreed to it you'd never have a Republican elected in this country again.”
Democrats have pushed to mandate that states make plans to expand early voting and mail-in balloting for the fall election, in the event that the coronavirus pandemic makes in-person voting unsafe.
To summarize, a refrain with which we are all familiar -

Quote:
Trump’s comment provides ammunition to voting rights advocates who argue that Republicans have erected obstacles to voting in numerous states over the past two decades to fortify their political advantage against demographic trends that favor Democrats.

One thing I've learned from Facebook over the past few years -- a point that has been reinforced with depressing frequency over the past few weeks -- is that the people who were bullies when we were in school tend to have grown up to believe (or at least claim) that people who are poor or otherwise disadvantaged somehow deserve to be poor/disadvantaged. And, therefore, we shouldn't waste any time feeling sorry for them -- and we certainly shouldn't be wasting any of our hard-earned tax dollars to provide them with any sort of security or support.

More to the point of this thread, I'm constantly amazed at how many of them absolutely insist that the system is completely fair and that if anyone is in any way disadvantaged by the system, it's Straight White Christian Males. Thus, there's absolutely no reason to feel sympathy for poor people or anyone else who "whines" about the "unfairness" of our social and economic institutions. If they're poor, homeless, jobless, etc., then it's clearly because they're lazy, and thus they clearly deserve to be poor.

The man -- still -- thinks "political correctness" is the worst threat to human rights. I think it's a safe bet that there's a lot he doesn't understand.

I hate Bill Maher and sometimes wonder if the psuedo intellectual shit stirrer is a plant, since it seems he only exists to be *that* liberal commentator people can point to to show liberals are just assholes trying to get one over on others just like they are.

Also fuck his ‘scientists used to do this, you can’t change the rules’ bullshit, that only goes to show he knows nothing about science. Science used to do x so we should keep doing x out of tradition is the antithesis of science.

But it does fit with his childish ‘I’m always right’ neener neener attitude. This is afterall the man who has defended using the N word and joking about slaves because he’s dated a black woman, and he’s decided that was good enough.

Also you can totally tell people aren’t bigots when they randomly start hating on people unrelated to the topic, like there’s no connection to Muslims here Bill, but now you’re bitching about Muslims.

“His projections have changed constantly.

And you know, why such a sudden change? That’s a pretty drastic change.”

The 2 million-plus number comes from the famous Imperial College study, forecasting the results of an environment with no social distancing measures taken at all. Lower mortality projections are the result of extreme social distancing, such as shelter-in-place orders and business closures. Lorraine said she did not know about that distinction.

There is just so much wrong here, from the idiotic/deliberate thing about it being #19 to the idea that THE US GOVERNMENT should have also been more prepared, but no, it's all just the WHO's fault.

Conservative activists are demanding governors lift orders designed to stop the spread of the coronavirus, despite the recommendations of public health officials. Trump, who has clashed with Democratic governors over how soon to reopen the US economy, tweeted his support on Friday, in an unprecedented endorsement of civil disobedience by a sitting president.

Many of the planned rallies have been inspired by a protest at the Michigan state capitol on Wednesday, which was attended by thousands.

Yet while organisers claim the protests are grassroots- and people-driven, a closer look reveals a movement driven by traditional rightwing groups, including one funded by the family of Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos.
This post is more about why some conservatives are saying (and doing) stupid shit.

Here There Be Hateful Propaganda


So Yesterday, I read this article by the New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/17/u...P5eZF62-QRuBlk

which I will separately talk about on the whole in the Winnie thread.

but this quote belongs here. In that context I made a post about it on Facebook.
:dancebey::dancebey::dancebey::dancebey::dancebey: :dancebey:
Quote:
"“If there’s a statement that I think I’m hearing the most, it’s: ‘Tell us what to do and trust us to do it, don’t try to make us do it by law,’” Robert Cahaly, a Republican pollster and senior strategist for the Trafalgar Group, said of the protesters. “It’s that whole axiom of, If you would trade liberty for security, you deserve neither.”"
So yeah, they are endangering us all for ideology. Also, Cahaly should learn his fucking Franklin better.

"those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." is the actual quote.

Franklin also wasn't arguing for personal liberty, he was arguing that the legislature should not give up it's essential liberty of collective government including taxation.

Quote:
Franklin was writing not as a subject being asked to cede his liberty to government, but in his capacity as a legislator being asked to renounce his power to tax lands notionally under his jurisdiction. In other words, the “essential liberty” to which Franklin referred was thus not what we would think of today as civil liberties but, rather, the right of self-governance of a legislature in the interests of collective security.
Liberty, safety, and Benjamin Franklin - The Washington Post

I suppose it's unsurprising that covidiots understand their Franklin about as well as they do epidemiology. Unluckily for us, there ignorance is proportional to their certitude.

:sadpenis::sadpenis::sadpenis::sadpenis::sadpenis: :sadpenis:

Someone who is definitely leftwing said that my post was "hateful propaganda." and unfriended me over this and probably a couple of other posts that I made that expressed disdain for the protests.

They previously professed that since the some of the protesters probably have legitimate concerns (or could since many poor people do indeed have legitimate concerns) that is wrong to accept the rhetoric of the protest leaders and that to do so is dishonest effort to delegitimize the protests.
(Also, we should assume that I am doing a shitty job of describing their concerns, there is a class divide between many of the protesters and the experts. It is easy to shelter in place if you have a tech job. The poor are disproportionately effected by covid19 and the economic downturn and they feel left behind.)

I can't help but disagree. While there are legitimate concerns, these MAGA Teaparty Astroturf just don't represent them. In fact these dumbshit ideologues crowd out such concerns in the public mind. News reports on the protests are news reports that could be on the effect of the economy on impoverished people.

I know this would never happen, but I wish the media would stop reporting on these protests like that. I wish they'd treat it sort of like how they recommend for school shootings. Make them short, dry, local stories, without dramatic pictures, no helicopter footage, no interviews with protestors. Just a text only report that some people protested the stay at home orders by congregating at this location at this time, the end.

Like I said, it's never going to happen, and I'm complicit, because I do keep giving into the impulse to watch the footage of these things.

In New Jersey, where they don't let people have guns, all the protestors were arrested before they could protest...
