Survivors are Still Victims
Author: BobR    Date: 2018-03-29 13:04:18

So I was going to write a blog about how the kids from Parkland - despite being "survivors" are still "victims" and should be considered as such. However, Heidi Hollen (friend and fellow Resistor Sister to Raine) posted this on Facebook, and pretty much summarized everything I was going to write:

Since the March for our Lives, those against comprehensive gun control have done or said the following:

  • Shared a photoshopped picture of Emma Gonzalez ripping up the constitution (she's actually ripping up a target)

  • Shared a photoshopped picture of Emma Gonzalez using an umbrella to vandalize a car (it's actually Brittany Spears after her break up with Kevin Federline)

  • Attacked Emma Gonzalez because she dared wear a jacket with a patch of the Cuban flag on the sleeve (she is Cuban, for fucks sake)

  • Showing a picture of David Hogg with his fist in the air alongside a picture of Hitler doing the Nazi salute (because that's the same)

  • These kids are paid actors (literally too stupid to respond)

  • David Hogg's father is a former FBI agent, which proves this is an Obama/Hillary/Soros deep state conspiracy to take all the guns. (This dumbfuckery is exactly why I don't want mouth breathers who believe such drivel to have access to firearms.)

  • Believe that these kids are being paid by George Soros (still awaiting my check from him for prior protesting) Also, how much money does this guy have in reality? Paying every protester since 2012 must mean he's close to bankruptcy at this point, right?

  • Believing that these kids are being manipulated by adults (these kids lost friends and classmates, at least two were severely injured, one laid under a dead classmate, another in the blood of a dead classmate, but yeah, adults MADE them protest)

  • Not understanding why these kids were marching (um....it was actually in the name, you window licking doodlefuck. March FOR our Lives cannot be more obvious.


I'm sure I've missed some of the retorts to Saturday's march. Ask yourself why the other side in this issue needs to lie and dig up the most tin foil hat wearing conspiracies in an attempt to counteract their message.

(note: edited for formatting and spelling)

Big Kudos to Heidi for helping summarize the disgusting depths to which the gun industry lobbyists and arms-over-kids extremists will go to maintain their investments.

Mornin' all!

I somehow got engrossed in power watching all of One Punch Man last night, and now I'm running on 4 hours of sleep. It was totally worth it tho that show is friggin' hilarious.

Good morning, bloggers!!!

I am here for a few minutes before report card pick up day. Then, I am off until I go back on April 9th.

I am not surprised by David Shulkin's removal as the Secretary for Veterans Affairs. I will be interested in reading what TriSec thinks of his nominated replacement, Dr. Ronny Jackson. According to Talking Points Memo, Trump nominated him as he was impressed with Jackson as a speaker.

I'm not sure if I am down with Momma's mocking SHS about her accent and lazy eye. It seems like she's punching down.

Morning, comrades.

Busy day already. But my sightseeing license is renewed for the season (Say, BPD...did my fingerprints change or something?) Shopping done for Easter, taking a moment to eat lunch, then on to round one of baking. (My annual Easter assault is far less ambitious than the Christmas assault on Mount Cookie.)

Then on to what is likely my last Pinewood Derby with Pack 205 tonight.

BTW, What is up with the creepy ass cover of Jeff Sessions on Time magazine?

I am meh about it, I have watched her mock too many reporters during her tenure there.

She's a bad person pushing evil propaganda and is a liar. She has given morality she thinks she has.

Seriously, if you haven't done so, watch a press briefing -- She's an awful person.

She's a press secretary; Her job is to talk . Y'all is pretty unprofessional for her position --

I agree with all your points. I still think it is punching down.

Like I said, Meh.

Sarah punches down every damn day to the fourth estate. She doesn't respect it at all.

personally, for myself only, there are bigger swords to fall on.

Who saw Dana Carvey do John Bolton on Colbert last night?

You know....the Mets are pond scum.

Erm, did I miss something? All I saw was them beating the Cards, 8-4.

We're on to the second game of the day - Sox and Rays just underway.

And on a side note, now that Andrew McCutchen is dead to me, I have ended my brief affair with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Now that 3 of my favourite Non-Sock players are out in San Francisco, I had considered lifting my longtime loathing, but I just can't bring myself to do it.

Yes, now I saw. But I've been on MLB.com all day - that story isn't even "above the fold" on the homepage.

Sheesh.

Yes, it was. Made him extra crazy, and whenever the camera cut to him, the mustache would get bigger and bigger. It ate Trump's ear in the end.

Back for game three - It's Opening Day, biatches!!

Now Dodgers v. Giants.

Of course, the Sox managed to choke.
