The Queen of Accidental Comedy

It's a thought that fills me with ambivalence. There is no doubt in my mind that within the space of less than a year. we will be speaking of Marjorie Taylor Greene in the past tense - at least as far as her political career is concerned. Her act has gotten too weird even for the nice folks of Shit-For-Brains, Georgia - her natural constituency. She did not come to Washington to legislate. She went there for no other reason than to call attention to herself, something she's done very handily. I will be surprised if she even gets the GOP nomination. 

The lady is toast. 

I don't say this with any degree of schadenfreude. I really am going to miss Marjorie Taylor Greene. For people like myself who make their names commenting on the insanity of the modern-day right wing scream machine, old Marge is a gift from fate. I'm going to miss her. Seriously.

One of the more memorable aspects of her career will be her atrocious molesting of the English language. The last time I wrote "your" for "you're" or "there" for "their" or "well" for "we'll" was probably when I was in the sixth grade. That the people of Georgia could possibly send this pathetic, uninformed person to the same halls that were once walked by the likes of Henry Clay and John Quincy Adams defies credulity. 

FUN FACT: Never in my life have I referred to "Colombus Day" or "Marshall law". I'm just sayin'.

While recently testifying about what her roll might have been in the insurrection of January6, 6, 2006 Representative Greene committed perjury at least forty times. When asked if she had ever called for the overthrow of the 2020 election, amazingly, Margie told the questioner that she "couldn't recall".


I would imagine that concurring in the violent overthrow of a legitimate democratic election is not something that would easily slip one's mind. It's another example, I believe, of the contempt she holds her constituents in. Does she really believe them to be that stupid? Yeah, she probably does. And in a lot of cases? Sadly, she's probably right. What the heck is in the water south of the ol' Mason Dixon? Any scientist who can figure that one out is probably deserving of the Nobel Prize.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is an embarrassment to the halls of congress. She is to the rights of women what "Justice" Clarence Uncle Thomas is to the rights of African Americans. Does she not realize that every idiotic statement she makes is preserved for history? Does she not understand that, seventy years from now, when she is long dead and long gone, her every utterance will be scrutinized by an unborn generation of students and historians? She will no doubt be viewed by them as an amusing and comical figure, worthy only of utter contempt and scorn.

She is the Lucille Ball of unintentional comedians.

I think I'm going to stop drinking today. Have I said that before?

Marjorie Taylor Greene was stripped of her committee assignments. So she really has nothing else to do except "call attention to herself" and grift (and vote).

Good luck on the stop drinking thing. I should also quit. But I still clobber beers on Friday night.

MTG is toast, at least to the enlightened. How will we be toasting SCOTUS?

The best thing I can say about Marshall Marge is, it's better to have someone evil and stupid in Congress than someone evil and smart.

Willful ignorance is no accident.

MTG is a nut job. Luckily she is a rarity on the conservative side and on the far fringe.

The left's nut jobs are many and currently in positions of great power, hence the calamitous decline in our nation and world standing. Biden should be in the Alzheimer's wing of an assisted living home and not in the oval office. I guess the leftist lunatics really in charge find him to be a useful mouthpiece despite the nonsensical crap he spews each time he tries to speak to the public though. It is scary because the leftist fringe IS the mainstream of that failed political movement now.

Tom, I am glad you are back and doing well. You had many of us worried with your long absence.

"MTG is a nut job."

Darrell is correct, but she follows Dear Leader's Big Lie and calls democrats commies.

These delusions are held by most conservatives these days.

At 7:17 PM, Blogger Darrell Michaels said...

I recall when Democrats were for the average Joe. Now Joe is for the far left fringe special interest groups, including ones that are self-avowed Marxists that do indeed despise America. These are not your father's Democrats anymore.

At 9:17 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

(Oops. Sorry Darrell. Typo. You're not a she.)

And I'm NOT a "Commie who hates America". It is the fascist Trumpist in Darrell's brain that believes that delusion.

Darrell and MTG are on the SAME PAGE in that hateful ideological position. They think democrats are commies.

They really do.

Lately it seems anyone who supports democracy, voter rights and public education and healthcare is a "commie" to the fascist Trumpists.

Republicans have ALWAYS supported the rich and their agendas. They will cut food stamps for the poor and gut Social Security to give the rich more profits and tax breaks. We all know this.

Darrell has no problem with those who serve mammon over human beings.

I challenge Darrell to show us the names and statements of "avowed Marxists who indeed despise America" that Biden supports.

Yeah, we know. He can't.

But he BELIEVES it, and that is all that matters to him. Beliefs and Trump both trump facts with the radical Right.

Hell, the Republican Party claims Trump's attempt to overturn the election by sending his mob to storm the Capitol was "legitimate political discourse".

Can they be any more pathological in their lies?

Your fathers' Republicans were NOT Trumpists who stormed the Capitol to overturn a fair election because their Dear Leader is incapable of admitting he lost.

Just ask Darrell for evidence that the election was stolen...

I hope you have a long time to wait for his answer. He banned me before responding to this question.

He'll take just as long to inform us of the "Marxists" that Biden supports.

Darrell doesn't know how radicalized he's become. He's now a full-fledged Trumpist. A true believer.

I like Darrell, but I've witnessed him go from condemning Trump's incitement of his violent mob to defending the Big Lie that resulted in this horrible violation of our democracy and termination of our legacy of peaceful transition of power.

Who really hates America here?

Biden administration, that's who really hates America.

"Biden administration, that's who really hates America."

This is from a supporter of Trump and his coup.

We know what's behind this hatred. It's because the Biden Administration are all "communists", amirite?

This patently dishonest and delusional red-baiting and commie-calling serves only one purpose. It lends justification for the radical Right to HATE their fellow Americans who happen to disagree with them.

This is exactly the scapegoating and demonization that fascists and white nationalists employ to ramp up their false sense of victimization and blame for their opponents.

"If you don't agree with me, and believe Republicans and Trump, you obviously hate America! Trump won! Stop the steal! You're ALL commies."

One recent example is their hysteria over Critical Race Theory.

They inflame moral panic and bitter resentments by falsely saying CRT is taught in public elementary and high schools. They don’t even understand this is not true, nor do they comprehend what CRT even is. Their propagandists define it for them, saying it is “Marxist indoctrination that teaches kids they are racists who hate America”.

Pure 100% bullshit.

We've seen this movie before. Their hate and lies are self-fueling and self-fulfilling.

If Trump can incite a mob to storm our Capitol, he can incite his cult into even more acts of violence and terrorism.

Remember he told the thugs they were "special" and he loves them.

All he has to do is declare open season on liberals, progressives and Democrats, and his enraged cult would start picking us off.

The hate and false justification for their hate are already in place.

They see dangerous enemies in those of us who promote racial and gender equality, equal justice under law, fair elections, voter rights, public healthcare and public education.

Their culture war is only one command away from open civil war. They await their Dear Leader's order to start shooting.

This is proven by the arrests of his Proud Boys and Oath Keepers who have admitted to it. They were told to “Stand back and stand by”.

They lust for the blood of Americans whom they've been indoctrinated to hate, and see as enemies.

Sounds just like a cult, doesn't it?

I pity them, but fear them. They are dangerous, and have proven to be a domestic threat as great as Jihadist terrorists.

Anonymous: "Yawn."

May 14, 2022: Ted Nugent’s message at Trump’s rally, “I love you, but I would love you more if you went out and just went berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the marxists and the communists.”

Stochastic Terrorism

1. The use of mass communication to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable. 2. Remote-control murder by lone wolf.

Buffalo NY May 14: Erie County Sheriff John Garcia called the shooting a hate crime. “This was pure evil,” Garcia said. “It was straight up racially-motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community, coming into our community and trying to inflict that evil upon us.” Eleven of the 13 people who were shot are Black and two are white. At a press conference Saturday night, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) called the shooter “a white supremacist who has engaged in an act of terrorism, and will be prosecuted as such.”

The Buffalo shooter says in his manifesto he learned from memes on 4chan that white people were dying off quicker than Blacks, and that the average Black person takes $700,000 in money from government handouts. He believed whites are victims of genocide and “Jews” are behind it. He says that he chose the location because that zip code had the highest Black population. He wants Black people to return to their home countries. He’d feel less bad knowing all the Blacks he killed are criminals but either way they’re “replacing us” on “our land”. There are DOZENS of pages of “memes”, bullshit charts, infographics and links to proof of how genetically inferior Blacks are to white people and how we are inherently less intelligent and more violent. Then another dozen pages “proving” Jews control everything.

Anon: "Yawn...But BIDIOT!"

Here’s what the shooter's manifesto says about his politics:

"When I was 12 I was deep into communist ideology, talk to anyone from my old high school and ask about me and you will hear that.
On the political compass I fall in the mild-moderate authoritarian left category, and I would prefer to be called a populist."

He also repeatedly attacks capitalists, and rejected the conservative label because, he wrote, “conservationism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it.”

Anonymous doesn't want anyone to know the racist embraces the same radical "great replacement" conspiracy that Tucker Carlson promotes.

"14 Words" is a reference to the most popular white supremacist slogan in the world: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

He attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar for “hating America,” saying, “We have every right to fight to preserve our nation and our heritage and our culture.”

We remember Klan Leader David Duke wanted Carlson to be Vice-President.

"President Trump! You have one last chance to turn the tables, win this election and save America—and yourself! Nominate Tucker Carlson for Vice President. This would energize your campaign beyond belief." Duke tweeted.

ADL calls on Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson over racist comments about 'replacement' theory

At 4:07 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

Who cares if a 12 year-old thought he was a communist. He's a racist Nazi mass killer now. He says he's a "populist", a favorite term embraced by white nationalists.

That makes him a radical Right terrorist.

It is false to equate his planned act of terrorism with the mentally ill driver in Waukesha. He was a thug fleeing from a domestic assault and took a wrong turn into a parade. It was NOT a pre-meditated act of racist terrorism.

Of course, Owens isn't the sharpest tool in the Oreo Shed:

"What’s the one “conspiracy theory” that no matter what anyone says you believe is true. Mine is that the moon landing in 1969 was completely faked."

On Tucker, Candace Owens calls the Chauvin verdict "mob justice" and declares that "this was not a fair trial. No person can say this was a fair trial."

Trump's 1/6 coup: "Call it a hunch, but my guess is there are still ANTIFA thugs in the mix."

Owens problem with Hitler had nothing to do with the Holocaust:

Owens said that she doesn't "have any problems at all with the word nationalism."
"I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don't want," she added, then using Hitler as an example.

“If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well — OK, fine,” she said. “The problem is he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German...I don’t really have an issue with nationalism”.”

Now she wants to blame the "race-obsessed media" for a Nazi terrorist rampage.

SHE's the part of the media that fuels lies, hate and division.

What is the racist reaction to mass murder by a white supremacist?

"Yawn." "What about the Black killers?"

Anything but a condemnation of racism and white supremacy.
