Whew, Occupying Government Buildings Is Good Again
"It's different when WE do it"
The Capitol riot on January 6 was bad, and I did not and will not defend it. Those idiots deserve the punishment they’re getting, and if that makes you mad, you’d be agreeing with me if they were all libs.
And, also, in addition to that: The 1/6 riot wasn’t an insurrection, or a coup, or worse than 9/11, or just like Pearl Harbor, or any of the other ridiculous claims the Democrats have made about it. It was bad and it shouldn’t have happened, and the Dems who exploit it for their own purposes are a bunch of @$$holes. The two things are not mutually exclusive.
If you think they actually care about the sanctity of government buildings, just look at this crap.
So we’re back to this being a legitimate form of protest now? Huh.
Climate protesters attempted to occupy the Department of the Interior on Thursday, with dozens holding a sit-in inside as those remaining outside clashed with the police who were blocking the entrance.
Protesters and security personnel were injured as climate activists crowded an entrance to the Stewart Lee Udall Main Interior Building on C St NW. Melissa Schwartz, a department spokesperson, said in a statement that security personnel sustained “multiple injuries,” and one officer was transported to a hospital.
Yeah, but it was for a good cause. Everybody knows the weather is going to kill us all, so it’s okay to break into a government building and hurt people. That’s only bad when the rioters are wearing MAGA hats.
Via the great @MidnightMitch:
Chuck Ross at the Washington Free Beacon: “WHO Taps Lab Leak Denier To Investigate COVID Origins.” Not only is the fox inside the henhouse, they’ve made him a manager.
It makes me nauseous that the Chinese Communist Party is getting away with infecting the world with their latest weaponized bat virus. Millions dead, the entire western world disrupted, and we’re all just supposed to smile and nod and keep buying cheap Chinese crap. Ptui.
Remember when Jimmy Kimmel at least pretended to be a man? Now he’s mocking Captain Kirk for going into space.
Kimmel’s hard left turn is nothing new, but comparing Amazon to state TV is a bit much coming from the guy who gets his talking points directly from Chuck Schumer.
And now, the least shocking news of the last 30 years…
Bill Clinton getting an infected dick is the “Dog Bites Man” of presidential news stories. If you want to know how something like this could happen, there’s a whole show on FX about it.
I’m just trying to imagine the smile on Hillary’s face right now…
If we weren’t in the middle of a transportation crisis, it might actually be funny that the secretary of transportation has been on maternity leave for the last two months and nobody noticed.
Congratulations on adopting those babies and all that, but are we supposed to ooh and aah over your parenting skills while the ports clog up and the shelves go bare? If you don’t want a cabinet-level job, you should quit. You’re 14th in the presidential line of succession, so the least you can do is show up for work.
Then again, this is what happened when Mayor Pete finally did show his face this week:
If we had a president with any idea what’s going on around him, he’d fire this clown today.
But who am I kidding? Buttigieg has been a slimy weasel his whole life. He’ll just keep failing up and calling his critics homophobes. He’ll be fine.
Hey, did you see that story about the maniac in Norway who used a bow and arrows to kill five people? Yeah, well, you can just forget it ever happened, because the killer had recently converted to Islam. INSTANT NON-STORY.
I used to wait tables, and I try to be respectful of restaurant servers because it’s not an easy way to make a living. But if a waitress ever does this to me, it’s coming out of her tip.
“Waitress, there’s a fly in my— WAIT, DON’T SHOOT!!”
Gotta say, though, putting a beer garden right on top of a Waffle House is a stroke of genius. All they need now is a fireman’s pole.
Libs can tolerate anything but dissent, and they’ve got a great sense of humor about everything but themselves. Emma Green at The Atlantic provides the latest example during her interview with Kyle Mann, editor in chief of the Babylon Bee. It seems strange for a journalist to sit down with a comedy writer and read off a list of jokes she didn’t like, but I guess that’s the future we can look forward to.
And of course, Woke America is still complaining about Dave Chappelle. As much as I hate the executives at Netflix for their arrogance and complete disregard for quality — as far as they’re concerned, they’re hog farmers and Squid Game is the slop in our trough — I applaud them for standing by Chappelle. The scolds who are trying to shut him down are no different than the PMRC in the 1980s, or Carrie Nation and the “temperance” movement over a century ago, or anybody else throughout history who thought they knew how to run the lives of the common rabble.
If I don’t like a comedian, I don’t watch him. That’s the way it works, and it works just fine. Have you seen the ratings for late-night TV lately?
On the other hand…
Kudos to the hilarious comedian Hannah Gadsby on an excellent satire of a horrid feminist shrew. They really do think like that!
This week the internet went bonkers over Jamie Costa’s impression of Robin Williams, and it turns out he’s been practicing it. A lot:
One thing, though: Leave Robin Williams’ daughter alone.
Please spare a thought and/or prayer for my friend Taylor White, who was injured in a car accident last week. Click the thread below to read all about it:
Taylor’s an amazing artist and a really nice person, and here’s wishing her a speedy recovery.
Thanks for reading! Show appreciation to the deity of your choice for the arrival of the final workday of the week. Boy, there must be a shorter way to say that…
