Wingnut Weekly – 23 Aug 2020

wingnut in chief
Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above this past week to point out …
Trump has been at war with the United States Post Office for years, but his latest actions are far more devious. He is using his executive power to destroy a popular institution, undermine the will of the people and rig an election.

What happens when you elect the wingnut brigade to office is rather unique?

Over the centuries of its existence the US has invoked many different emotions from other nations. For example, envy, anger, or admiration. Never before in the entire history of the US has an administration managed to invoke one specific reaction until now. Gone is respect, dignity, and warmth, instead what we now reap is pity.

The big news of the past week was the indictment of Bannon and others for fraud. Trump of course denies any involvement, but he is on record as officially blessing the project. They even used his endorsement to harvest funds. To quote the Washington post commenting on the indictment …

This all couldn’t be happening to a nicer bunch of grifters.

They really are just a bunch of con artists. This indictment is yet one more data point that verifies that such a claim is not just an opinion but a legal fact.

What new absurdities have been promoted this past week?

Let’s take a look.

Wingnut proclamations from the last 7 days

Here are some of the highlights this week…

Conspiracies

  • Infowars Personality ‘Millie’ Weaver Arrested on Felony Charges, Fans Shower Her With Cash … “Millicent “Millie” Weaver, a personality who operates under conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars umbrella, was arrested Friday on three felony charges: robbery, tampering with evidence, and obstructing justice. Weaver was also charged with domestic violence, a misdemeanor. Weaver’s fans have already compiled a six-figure cash sum to gift to Weaver upon her release.
    • Clearly her fans are supporters of robbery, evidence tampering, and much more.
  • James Robison says that the 2020 election is a choice between … “the life and death of freedom.
    • He is correct, it really is … but the right solution is not his.
  • QAnon Conspiracy Theorist Mark Taylor Knows Why Trump Dodged the Question About QAnon …“They want Trump on the record supporting Q before they pull their false flag,” 
  • Dave Hayes, who has built an entire career out of being a leading “QAnon researcher” under the online moniker Praying Medic, insists that he’s not a conspiracy theorist.
    • He thinks that those that label him a conspiracy theorist are part of a conspiracy.

Truly Bizarre

Stuff that is so utterly bizarre it is self-parody …

What else came out of the Wingnut fantasy land last week?

Lots of other stuff. 

As always, it is an endless stream. Some of it is good, some sad, some is rather grim, and some is quite frankly hilarious. Here are a few more samples …

COVID-19 …

More weird claims …

The Catholic Church …

Lies …

Twilight Zone Bizarre …

Sometimes surprisingly good things do happen …
