A Net of Good and Evil

Is there no limit? Is there no bottom to their barrel of monkeys? In the wake of the murder of children radical Republican fascists seek to score points.  To attempt to make hay from the blood of murdered children. Marge Traitor Greene has her Twitter account restricted but only for a week. This is Twitter’s equivalent of a token punishment and equal to no punishment. Greene makes the assertion that the victims of her fascism are actually the aggressors.

I left Twitter after the blustering billionaires brokered bamboozle and this behavior tells me I made the right choice. As if Green’s statement wasn’t foul enough her timing is worse, “people need to know about the threat they face from Antifa & trans-terrorism.” Greene is deflecting from a child massacre by using her personal bigotry against innocent people.

This behavior is no different than the Nazis blaming Jews for the problems in Germany. On Friday, House Republican’s stunt show passed the “Parents bill of Rights.” As always, the bill has little to do with parents and certainly nothing to do with rights. The bill forces educators to use birth pronouns and to out Trans children to their parents. Spoiler alert, the parents already know their children.

Their goal is to stigmatize and traumatize Trans children. To make headlines for their gibbering senseless minions to cackle over. The bill will progress no further as the Senate wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole and the White House would certainly veto it. The bill only just passed the radical House as even five Republicans voted against it.

Little Tucker TV dinner couldn’t miss the opportunity to jump on board the bandwagon to try to score points on the tragedy of a child massacre. Carlson claims the Trans movement is targeting Christians. In the same way John Kennedy was targeting Dallas. A sickening deflection illustrating their lack of basic human decency.

Josh Ha, ha, Hawley has been quiet since the video of his now famous 100-yard dash out of the Capital to escape the harmless tourists first appeared. But his siesta is now over. Ha, ha, Hawley says assault weapons shouldn’t be banned because they have other uses too. Sure, they do. You can tie a string on the barrel and use it as a fishing pole. Or you can use it to make partisan headlines with the troglodytes. It is both shameful and despicable.

Kevin McCarthy has said nothing because he hasn’t been told what to say yet. He is the enabler in the Fascist caucus. He doesn’t tell them what to say they tell him what to say. But McCarthy took the job as speaker and so is responsible for whatever comes from his membership. Paying the cost for being the boss and being the first to enable the worst.

The House Republicans couldn’t even wait for the funerals before attempting to score points and deflect the blame for the tragedy that they helped to enable. Using a tragedy to further their bigotry. I’m left speechless sad and depressed for this country. Not that we haven’t had despicable characters in the past but that they are in positions of authority and championed and tolerated on social media.

What do the twits at Twitter think will happen when Greene’s suspension is up? Do they assume she will have learned her lesson now and will behave from here on out? She’s shitting on their rug and Twitter is letting her. Is it their goal to support these miscreants who couldn’t care less about Twitter’s reputation?

Yet the chickens are beginning to come home to roost. In Mississippi, Republican resistance to expanding Medicaid is forcing hospitals to close. In Idaho, restrictive abortion laws put doctors in the crosshairs. So, the doctors are packing their bags and leaving the state as fast as their fat little legs can carry them. Coming soon to a Republican state near you!

In Alabama, proudly 49th in the nation in education. The Governor allows $25 million dollars from the state’s poorly named education trust fund to be used to build a water park outside Mungumery. Claiming it’s educational. A state that can’t even supply microscopes to high schools thinks a water park is educational.  

“No lifeguard on duty. Swim at your own risk!”  What’s that sign say? Well, that’s an example of Alabama education for you. They love the children there, bless their shriveled little hearts and pointed little heads.

Former laundryman and vending machine technician Jimi Jordan received a five-page answer to his subpoena into the affairs of the Manhattan DA. The DA called it an unlawful intrusion into the affairs of the sovereign state of New York. Congress has no oversight authority into the affairs and prosecutions of the state’s courts. If Jordan had ever passed the bar exam, he would have known that.

But it is just more of the same crap. Headlines uber allis! Hey y’all! Watch this! Attempting to interfere in things which don’t concern him. Willing to attempt to obstruct justice only to defend a Republican criminal. But the DA makes Jordan a sweet offer. Placing a big piece of cheese on the trigger of the rat trap. Come to New York they said. It will be fun, they said. Meet with us and tell us all your concerns. Come trip yourself up and put yourself in personal legal jeopardy. We will be waiting anxiously for your reply.

In Tennessee, Republican Tim Burchett claims that there is no way to fix gun violence. Because Republicans are nihilists and believe whatever happens, happens. That’s Republican leadership for you. Jesus loves you, but we don’t personally give a shit. Criminals are going to be criminals! So you dumb saps are on your own and your dumb kids are on their own too! Asked about his own children, Burchett adds they homeschool his daughter. So, his kid his safe, but fuck you and your little rug rats. Shit happens, so get over it sweetheart!

I understand partisan politics well enough, but I don’t understand the lack of human decency. No better than Nazis. The callous disregard for the lives of children. The lack of respect for grieving parents and their lack of respect for their fellow human beings basic right to exist and live peacefully. And willing to use the blood of murdered children in a weak attempt to advance the cause of Fascism.

“I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one. . . . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil. . . . There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?” ― John Steinbeck
