Wingnut Weekly – 5 July 2020

Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above this past week to point out …
That’s right. In the middle of a global pandemic, our president is trying to deny millions of Americans access to health care. Nice.

There are specific attributes that are generally valued. Included within that list are traits such as honesty, integrity, decency, respect, tolerance, and empathy. You can of course think of more. What is apparently lacking within the wingnut community is much of this.

The objection to the wingnut brigade is not an objection to beliefs that are not true. We can all respect and happily be at peace with communities such as the Amish. They might indeed be rather extreme, dress as if it was the 1700s, avoid the use of machines such as cars, and keep themselves generally apart from the modern world. What is starkly different when compared to political/religious wingnuts is that they don’t attempt to force their beliefs upon everybody else and insist that we must all adhere to such thinking.

That’s basically the issue. Believing absurd ideas is generally not a problem for others. However, if you attempt to force all to adhere, then you have crossed the line. What they might not grasp is that it opens a door; their public proclamation announces that it is open season for both criticism and mockery of the daft beliefs they wish to impose.

Let’s take a look at what has been happening this past week amongst the wingnut community so that we can laugh at the utter absurdity of it all.

Wingnut proclamations from the last 7 days

It is all very much everything you might expect and a lot more. Here are some of the highlights …

The Cult Of Trump

BLM

  • Josh Bernstein says the “scumbags” at Black Lives Matter are … “Marxist, Black, revolutionary communist pieces of garbage, and they should all be absolutely destroyed.
    • I’m guessing that Josh is not a BLM fan.
  • Star Parker says that Black Lives Matter was founded by .. “a bunch of angry lesbian women who have decided to use ethnicity to divide this country so that they can purge out what they call patriotic hierarchies.
    • I suspect she meant “patriarchal” hierarchies.

The Wrath of a God

Masks

Some folks are quite determined to self-identify as idiots …

Fraudulent Claims

Truly Bizarre

  • Liberty Counsel warns that … “the DNA of murdered children will be injected into the bloodstream of anyone who takes those tainted [COVID-19] vaccines.
  • Jerome Corsi warns that if Joe Biden is elected president, calling the fire department will result in antifa activists showing up to abuse your family, ransack your house, and burn it to the ground.
  • Samuel Rodriguez Says Democrats Are ‘Hostile to Our Christian Worldview in Every Sense of the Word’
    • Meanwhile back in our reality, the majority of Democrats actually identify with some variation of Christianity
  • Dave Daubenmire is plotting to start a local chapter of Black Lives Matter, so he can use it as cover to protest Planned Parenthood.

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 …

… and that’s a wrap for this week.

Will next week be different and result is no bizarre claims from the wingnuts?

Probably not.
