SMH: Conservatives Cry 'Nanny State' For the Dumbest Reason Ever



This is as dumb as it gets.

by Edward Lynn

Honestly, if I can just speak personally for a sometimes the stuff I come across from the conservative alternative media universe really blows my mind. I mean, sometimes when I post an article to social media about something really stupid that conservatives did or said, I will find myself making the comment “the stupid it burns”. Well, in this case I already know I’ll be doing that again, because this time the stupid literally burns.

Yeah, in the course of my daily duties of perusing the right-wing propaganda-sphere I came across this amazing piece of stupidity on the steaming pile of nonsense known as Twitchy.com. And I was just stunned. Because the latest outrage driving conservatives up the wall (actually maybe I shouldn’t use that analogy) is the audacity of government scientists warning people not to try and… get this… roast marshmallows over the lava vents of an erupting volcano.

Yes, you read that right. Seems like common sense not to do this, right? Not to the don’t tread on me (I’ll tread on you) crowd… To quote the Twitchy article;

“If we lived next to Kilauea volcano in Hawaii, there’s a 100% chance that we would do this and film it and put it on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

But, according to alleged experts, roasting marshmallows over lava is dangerous”


Yes, by “alleged experts”, they do mean the scientists of the United States Geological Survey. But what do those eggheads know about science, and anyhow, science isn’t real, Jesus said so. Right? Wrong.

1. If there wasn't a chance that some moron...

Would take innocent kids or pets on an excursion to do this, I'd say go ahead, maybe you can win the Darwin Award.

Sometimes warning, rules and laws are needed even for something that to any sane semi intelligent person would be 'common sense'. Idiots like this are why.

2. "Stop signs and red lights and making school buses stop at RR crossings! It's out of hand!

Used to be able to buy radium paint for the walls in the nursery, but they shot that down! I always liked that old One Night Cough Syrup stuff, with its medicinal mix of alcohol, chloroform, and morphine, but the bastards took it off the shelf! Used to be able to walk into the hardware store whenever and pick up a case of dynamite without any bullshit papers. Not now! It's just fucking oppressive!"

3. I've already told them in clear language

Be sure to wear your fireproof MAGA hat when roasting marshmallows over volcanoes. If you do not own a fireproof MAGA hat, then please do not attempt to roast marshmallows over volcanoes.

4. Lava is really overrated as a heat source. I invite them all to leap in waving their maga hats.
