Open Thread Feb. 26: Stupidity Springs From the Barrel of a Gun

Filed in National, Open Thread by on February 26, 2018

Every time America has another mass shooting, gun owners demonstrate that gun ownership is inversely related to intelligence. Or, to paraphrase an old axiom, if all you’ve got is a gun, everything looks like a target. The Parkland school shooting victims are finding that out, as they have been inundated with death threats from ammosexuals who don’t understand that this is exactly why we want to take away their guns.

The proof that it’s all about their lack of courage was plainly seen this morning, when President Sack’o’Shit told America’s assembled governors that he would have run in to confront the Parkland shooter “even if [he] didn’t have a gun.” He’s as full of shit as the county wastewater treatment plant, only he doesn’t smell as good.

Sadly, President Fat Fuck is even more odious in private than in public. In private, he wants to execute drug dealers because of course he does. Let’s just hope we don’t make the mistake of allowing him any last words from the gallows when he’s being hanged for treason.

Rich shitbagsRepublicans don’t have to fantasize about shooting people — they sue them instead. Mass-murdering coal magnate Donald Murray went that route after HBO satirist John Oliver enlisted a giant squirrel tell Murray to “eat shit” for killing six miners. Now that’s just mean — telling a man to eat his own brains.

    This week President Trump thinks that he would have “ in there (Parkland HS) even if I didn’t have a weapon,” Next week he’ll think that the did run in there.

    And speaking of coal, Alby, here’s another editorial from Daily Record columnist John Niven. I don’t think he needs the paper bag this time.

    BTW, check out the photo of president scumbucket that goes along with the editorial. That sure as hell doesn’t look like 239 pounds to me.

  3. Alby says:

    The 239 pounds are just his ass.

  4. Ben says:

    If he had next to no muscle, all that fat could make him weight as little as 239.
    He brags about never exercising and has to be driven around a golf course while much more virile men walk. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if lifting 20 pounds, or taking a small flight of stairs winded him.

  5. Alby says:

    Another reality revealed by the Parkland shooting is what assholes most school administrators are.

    Consider what’s happening at Cherry Hill East High School in New Jersey, where a teacher was suspended for raising security concerns and students were threatened with “No prom for you!” if they protested the suspension.

    Threats and force are the only things our “leaders” in American society truly believe in. They all must go.

  6. Alby says:

    The narcissism of Americans can never be overestimated. Now comes Monica Lewinsky, Miss Kneepads of 1998, inserting herself into the #metoo movement.

    No, honey, not you.

    @Alby 35 years in the classroom and I can tell you the weak link in Delaware ed is leadership, or the lack of it. Corrupt, selfish, stupid, short sighted, lacking awareness, uninvolved, bullies, toxic.

  8. Alby says:

    @Paul: I grew up in suburban Philly, one school district over from Upper Merion, where principal Jay C. Smith ran a lucrative crime ring before he turned to murder. I’ve never had any illusions about school “leadership.”

  9. Arthur says:

    The parkland shooting has brought protests to a new light and hopefully a good light. every school in west virginia is closed because of teachers protesting salary and benefits. why do i relate it to parkland? because it takes one good group to begin affecting other groups to take a stand.

    Alby, it could work if the plan included psychiatric orderlies armed with tranquilizer guns to guard the guards.

  11. Alby says:

    They think their guns have magical powers, like Harry Potter’s wand.

  12. RSE says:

    Wow! Jake Tapper laid into Sheriff Israel like he was some kind of Republican. You don’t want to mess with these media types and their reputation.
    It was like Oprah and that guy who wrote “A Million Little Pieces”.

  13. Alby says:

    Glad to see you’ve reduced it to the level you understand, a pissing match.
