Star Parker: Hug a Psycho, Stop the Next School Shooting

they said whatWhen you don’t have anything intelligent to say, the best thing to do is JUST NOT TALK. Conservatives have yet to master that type of self-control, even after decades of making fools of themselves. Today’s case in point: Star Parker, who recently weighed in on the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, as reported by Right Wing Watch:

Conservative activist Star Parker blamed the survivors of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school for helping to bring about the massacre by not making friends with the future gunman, saying in a television interview yesterday… …we can call for gun control if we want to as a nation, we can call for more federal laws if we want to as a nation, but usually when you’re faced with tragedy, you first check yourself. We have forgotten how to just look inwardly. We’ve become such a nation of victims that we’ve forgotten to say, ‘Wait a minute, what could I have done?’

When asked what the students could have possibly done to prevent 19-YEAR-OLD DOMESTIC TERRORIST Nikolas Cruz from committing mass murder, Parker replied, I kid you not:

Well, perhaps say ‘hello,’ perhaps say ‘I’m sorry to hear your dad died… This is not the responsibility of Washington, D.C., or the NRA. This is the responsibility of people that are closest to someone to be able to look them in the eye as an individual. … this is a very small community, someone must have saw [sic] his sadness, someone must have known his dad died. …they expelled him probably because he was acting out, and he was acting out probably because he didn’t have any friends—you know, whoever sat next to him in class, they’d better not be the ones who are protesting out there today.

WOW. That’s a new one, putting the onus for a school shooting on the students; we have plumbed the depths of callousness. Here are a few highlights from Cruz’s teenage years, courtesy of the Miami Herald; I wonder if Parker would have wanted her child to bring this kid home for dinner:

  • Nikolas hit his Mother with a vacuum cleaner hose and threw her against a wall
  • Shot his neighbor’s chickens
  • threatened to kill another boy over a girl
  • “talked about killing Mexicans and gays and chaining up and killing black people”
  • “referred to white women in interracial relationships as traitors”.
  • wrote about his birth mother: “My real mom was a Jew. I am glad I never met her.”

And nobody wanted to be this guy’s BFF? Stuck up little high school students; if only they’d said hello to him…

You might also want to read about Republicans gutting coverage for mental health care, how Trump made it easier for the mentally unstable to get guns, how the late Phyllis Schlafly railed against routine and comprehensive” testing and mental health screening in schools, or how the 1996, Republican-majority Congress prevented the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from funding research into firearm injuries and deaths in the ensuing decades.

Kevin McCarthy Can STFU About “Abdicating Responsibilities”

From Political Wire, (My emphasis):

“House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) wants to know why Rep.-elect Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) hasn’t been sworn in, saying the seat’s ‘elongated vacancy’ is ‘an abdication’ of his responsibilities,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

As opposed to say… holding a seat on the Supreme Court hostage for more than a year… or suspecting your candidate for President of being paid by a foreign government, and covering it up… or refusing to meet with constituents… or say, doing THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WANT.

Go ahead, throw your beer bashes about screwing America; your day is coming, and it won’t be pretty, trust me.

Michael Snyder and the Dumbest Conservative List You’ll Read

blogguyEvery time a Conservative writes a post that lists things, I picture a guy at his desk using his fingers and toes. That being said, Michael Snyder’s post “A list of 100 things liberals hate about America” must have been GRUELING.

After his fingers and toes were depleted, he probably tried an abacus, but couldn’t figure out how to use it. counter

Moving on to a hand held counter, he kept forgetting whether he clicked it the last time or not. At this point, he’s at a head exploding level of frustration, and calls John Hawkins, Conservative list-maker extraordinaire. “For God’s sake man, put pebbles in a pile!” Hawkins screams. Finally, Snyder finishes his list.

Michael_SnyderMichael Snyder runs the website “The Economic Collapse”, where he claims he puts “a very high priority on love” (Which is obviously why he’s written such a hateful post). He calls himself “one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible.” (Just not that Ephesians 4:25 thing: Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another).

ANYWAY, let’s look at some of the 100 things we supposedly “hate about America”. I’ll skip the tired old BS like the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, the flag, the 10 Commandments…

zsSorry, where was I? Oh yeah, we Liberals hate:

#5 Big Trucks

rolling coalMaybe what he means here is the childish pricks who have modified their “big trucks” to “spew great plumes of black exhaust smoke — just like the trucks at truck-and-tractor-pull competitions... targets being “walkers, joggers, cyclists, hybrid and Asian cars…” (Business Insider, Sep. 6, 2016) Why do this you ask? Because wanting cleaner air somehow infringes on their liberty.

#11 Traditional Values

You know, like women at home, barefoot and pregnant AGAIN, while the family struggles on one income, but the husband’s a “man’s man” because he’s “head of the house” they struggle to pay for.

#12 The American Flag

Sorry, dumbshit; this is not the American flag. con flag

 

 

 

 

#16 Religious Freedom

He means the kind of religious freedom Conservative Christians believe they’re the only ones entitled to. You know, where they’re trying to shove it down everyone else’s throats while they themselves behave like a bunch of heathens.

#17 Homeschooling

This one’s true; but only because we cringe at things like “ain’t got none”, nukular, and “fixin’ to”.

#19 Christian Schools

True again; because Jesus didn’t ride a dinosaur, the earth is more than 6,000 years old, and science is a real thing.

#22 Donald Trump

ABSOLUTELY

(Although I would have had him at #1.)

#23 Mike Pence

pence

#25 Rush Limbaugh

limbaughWhat sane person doesn’t? The REAL point here is that Snyder, a “good Christian” and all, doesn’t hate this pig. Limbaugh has suggested, among other things, that poor children should look for food in dumpsters..

 

#28 Old-Fashioned Light Bulbs

Yes, and turtles caught in 6 pack rings, garbage washing up on the beach, toxic dumps…

#29 Jesus, #30 The Bible, #31 The Christian Faith

Blah, Blah, Blah

#32 The Drudge Report

Seriously? Like anyone gives a damn?

#33 John Wayne

Watch it, pardner.

#34 Alex Jones

This unhinged lunatic? Yup.

Alex Jones faces

#36 Tupperware

HUH?

#37 Big Cheeseburgers

HUH?

#39 Clint Eastwood

LOVE his movies but, the guy talks to empty chairs for God’s sake.

#44 Ron Paul

#45 Rand Paul

Gee, wonder why…

The Pauls

#46 Marriage

Conservatives clearly like marriage more than we do, as they tend to do it 2, 3, even 4 times. Me? One man, 20 years. Yeah, I must hate marriage.

#51 Steakhouses

Right after big cheeseburgers, I guess.

#52 Chuck Norris

I have a thing against guys who play action heroes on TV, so they think they’re heroes in real life.

John-wayne

#53 Bottled Water

I think he’s talking about Nestle here. As Your News Wire reported:

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, the now Chairman of one of the biggest corporations and the largest food product manufacturer in the world, believes corporations should own all the water on the planet, and no one should be allowed to have access to it unless they pay.

Nestle-CEO

#55 The 1st Amendment

#56 The 2nd Amendment

#57 The 10th Amendment

Must have lost track of his counting pebbles again.

#63 Charlie Daniels

Love the music, but I wouldn’t hang out with him.

#64 Dolly Parton

He’s got me there. Wigs too big, clothes too small, voice like nails on a chalkboard… and she really should back off the Botox.

dolly parton

#65 Duck Dynasty

True. We hate phonies, and we can spot them a mile away.

duck dynasty frauds

#66 Johnny Cash

Sorry, LOVE Johnny Cash

#67 Sarah Palin

We’re obviously not the only ones. As we tried to tell you in 2008…

sarahpalinpoll

This Bimbo doesn’t belong ANYWHERE NEAR the Oval Office.

palin

Now, can you stop making stupid people famous… PLEASE?

#68 Cheesesteaks

Now that’s just ridiculous.

#69 Sean Hannity

True, Liberals don’t like political shills posing as “News” folk.

hannity

#71 Cadillacs

Well you have to admit, they have gotten pretty ugly.

caddies

I’d rather have a Jag

2017-Jaguar-F-Type-S-Convertible

#72 Barbie Dolls

Someone’s got a doll fetish, I think. Seriously, in this century

dolls

#73 Ted Cruz

We are not alone.

#75 Charlton Heston

Actually, I love his cold dead hands.

#76 Israel

I don’t hate Israel; I hate this guy:

#77 Benjamin Netanyahu

#78 Miners

Because we care about their health?

#80 The Coal Industry

Because they make their money by killing their employees?

#85 Small Businesses

In Republican Land, the following companies are considered “small businesses” because they’re classified as “Pass Throughs” (NBC, 2010):

  • Enterprise Products Partners, L.P., a pipeline company with 2009 revenues of $25 billion.
  • Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., a Wall Street firm with $445 million in revenue in 2009.
  • Price Waterhouse Coopers, an accounting firm with $26 billion in revenue in 2009.
  • Koch Industries, a conglomerate of partnerships with 70,000 employees.
  • The Hillman Company, an investment founded by billionaire philanthropist/industrialist Henry Hillman.

Yeah, we hate them.

#89 The Phrase “Islamic Terror”

First of all, it’s “Radical Islamic Terrorists”; and why don’t Conservatives ever say the phrases “Radical Domestic Terrorists”, or “Radical Christian Terrorists”?

#90 Big Families

He means big religious families, like the ones who have 20 kids because they can’t have sex unless it’s for pro-creation, but they like sex so they just keep spitting kids out, and if one’s a pedophile they just lock their daughters up at night and continue pontificating on how dangerous gay people are, meanwhile the pedophile grows up to hire hookers, but God forgives him and them for everything.

#91 The Bible Belt

That would be the area of the country where teen pregnancies, repeat teen pregnancies (the “Bible Belt” needs a chastity belt evidently), poverty, obesity, diabetes, incarceration, lack of education, and porn, among other things, are predominant.

#92 The Creation Museum

Adam and EveThe day they explain how Adam and Eve got belly buttons, I’ll pay attention.

 

 

 

#95 Anyone Who Disagrees With Them

Translation: Anyone who repeats GOP talking points verbatim as their own thoughts. Sort of like Mr. Snyder did with most of his list.

#100 The American People

THEY elected Trump, so I’ll just leave that one right there.
