A pretty good read.

(EDIT)

Again, the perpetual quandary: Is it worse to actually be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, antisemitic, anti-Muslim, idiotic shitsmear on the underwear of humanity? Or is it worse to merely pretend to be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, antisemitic, anti-Muslim, idiotic shitsmear on the underwear of humanity to the extent that nobody can tell the difference at all?

I still don't have an adequate answer for this, except for "it doesn't really matter which is the case, because it's abominable in either case."

Here is the article on which the Twitter thread is based.

Hell, at this rate, maybe I should just bring the Trump tweets tag back. ¬_¬

I started to say "Late night" instead of "Late-at-night," but didn't want it to be confused with Late Night as in the television genre. Can "Late Night" be considered a "genre" now? *shrug* Hell, if I know. I don't watch it anyway, except when it's reposted on Youtube or something and then linked to me via Twitter or Facebook or whatever.

Anyway.

Warning: incoming bizarre, tangential, fucked up, quasi-stream of consciousness Twitter thread embeds.

(Note: "My Immortal" has a rather extensive page on "the other wiki" as well, for what that's worth.)

And then, instead of going to bed, I wrote a Dreamwidth post about it, and then crossposted it to Facebook. And then went to bed.

So, after James Comey said that Trump lied, the White House response was that Trump is not a crook.

"Media Criticism From 'a Proud Deplorable'"

In case it wasn't already clear, this right here is what sane, Trump-opposing citizens of the United States of America and the rest of the world are up against. The fact that these irredeemable idiots are supposedly proud to be called "deplorable," and, in fact, call themselves "deplorable," tells you pretty much everything you'll ever need to know about them. Words mean things, after all, and these dumbasses are indeed 100% absolutely accurate when they call themselves deplorable.

Seriously, even if Trump himself came out and said, "Yes, I'm a traitor and, yes, I stole the election with the help of the Russians," and then started playing video involving himself, his children, and Vladimir Putin, all of them performing the contents of the worst Aristocrats joke you've ever heard, it wouldn't matter at all, because these goddamned unrepentant asshats would still shriek "FAKE NEWS!" and "WHERE'S THE PROOF?!" and "PROUD TO BE DEPLORABLE HERPITY DURRR!"

Once again, as I've said numerous times in the past, the sheer stupidity, grievous gullibility, incredible ignorance, and horrendous hatefulness of these militant morons never ceases to astonish me. You think I'd be fucking used to it by now, but my befuddlement that these people can be so goddamn terrible (or, hell, that they can continue to exist at all) grows with every passing day and every example of their asininity that I witness, such as the above opinion piece.

This is the "war room" shit I'm referring to, if you hadn't already heard about it.

I'm going to embed my tweets below, but if you'd rather read it on Twitter itself (where it'll probably be prettier), here is my Twitter thread response to this other Twitter thread (as retweeted by [personal profile] tokoz's [protected] Twitter).


Huge Twitter thread behind cut )


This is, of course, assuming that we still actually have a chance to pull the emergency brake on this runaway train before it sails over the cliff. This is assuming the original thread above isn't correct about the GOP allowing Trump to somehow get away with something utterly, ridiculously, irreversibly[1], abjectly asinine, like getting rid of any further elections altogether.

[1] - Well, not irreversible in the sense that the rest of the country would let him get away with it, of course. (Civil War 2.0, anyone?)

I recently sent messages via their websites to Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr and to House Representative Mark Walker concerning the Trump FCC attempt to destroy Net Neutrality, undoing the good work that President Obama had put into place supporting it.

This is the response I received from Senator Tillis:


Stupid bullshit behind cut )



In other words, to put it bluntly, Senator Tillis has opted to be a part of the problem, rather than the solution. I don't know why I was expecting otherwise. As such, as I did in the past, I will be voting against him again the next time he is up for reelection in 2020.

"This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for every American."

As I said on Facebook: We've long known that this was coming, but that doesn't make the ass it sucks any less encrusted.

Let me just say this, yet again: Fuck Donald Trump. Fuck all of Donald Trump's lickspittles. Fuck everyone who still supports Donald Trump even a little bit or who still think he's somehow doing a good job.

And, most importantly in this case, fuck anyone and everyone who is benefiting in any way from this destruction of net neutrality.

There are two different cons that have been pulled on the conservative/Republican rank and file, and even on more than a few liberals/Democrats and independents and such.

"Trump’s younger supporters know he’s an incompetent joke; in fact, that’s why they support him."

This article was far more interesting than I initially thought it would be before I started reading it. Despite the headline, Trump isn't the main subject of the article. It's mostly about the history of 4chan and how it gave rise to Gamergate, which in turn gave rise to the "alt-right" (which isn't really part of "the right," in the traditional sense, even if they ostensibly and temporarily share the same "goals," and also isn't made up just of assholes from 4chan) and its support for Trump. It is, as far as I'm concerned, pretty much the be-all-end-all article on the topic. I would recommend to everyone to read it. Not just skim it. Actually read the whole thing.

To put it succinctly, Donald John Trump, and in particular the concept of Donald John Trump as President of the United States, is little more than a living, breathing 4chan meme. Donald John Trump, and especially Donald John Trump as he ran for President and after he was elected as President and after he was sworn in and began the job of being President, is little more than Gamergate, writ large.

As seen through the eyes of someone who has obviously spent far more time in the trenches of 4chan than I ever have, ever will, and ever want to, this article shows that it makes perfect sense why these people would support Trump: they don't, not really. Trump was and is a prank on the system that left them, in their minds and perhaps in truth, utterly emasculated. They voted for the con-man, knowing full well that he was a con-man, because he was the con that they were playing on everyone, including themselves. Trump is the end (hopefully) result of a decades long, full-scale temper tantrum being thrown by so many of these American hikikomori. Trump is the manifestation of these people voting, willingly and knowingly rather than ignorantly, against their own self-interests, because they already believe that the system is busted and can do nothing to help them, so why not burn it to the ground? They take morbid pride in their failures. And any attempts by "the left" or "feminists" or the like (who they see as "social justice warriors," i.e. the enemy) to try to correct the misconceptions held by these people are largely ineffective and even counterproductive, driving them even further into their exclusivities.

For the first time ever, this article has led to me feeling the very briefest inklings of pity for these people, rather than the derision and disgust and dismissiveness that I ordinarily feel for them... that is, until I looked at the comments under the article and saw some of the very ones being described in the article making their rancid opinions known. Ugh.

And here is another, similar article. Not quite as interesting as the first, to me at least, and far more combative (justifiably so), but still worth reading, I think.

Found these via articles via Twitter.
