About Me

Just me.

No, thank you!

A big dollop of demagoguery never goes amiss, does it?

edit: btw, I think you meant "welcome back". And you're welcome to check out my journal.

(Dating from 2015, that is.)

For ease of reference, here's something now:

But we forget.

Being a gay man trumps being a woman or a person of color.

No matter how unqualified the gay man and how qualified the woman and person of color.

Just ask Hollywood.

(I realize my comments may seem incongruous in light of my primary choice. That choice is based on the extreme need to defeat Trump and the best choice for doing that. Pete Buttigieg has zero chance of doing it. My vote was kind of Harris's to lose, at the outset, and she lost it, but I agree that she would be an excellent candidate for a senior cabinet position. I do think we have to remember that policy and law come almost entirely from Congress, and step back somewhat from the ideological differences between Democratic candidates and focus on how to end Trump. All my life I've wished I had the luxury of "vote your conscience", of vote for rather than against, but the opportunity just seldom comes along.)

"I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family"

Why is the President using the language of honor killing?


Would he have said the same thing about a white woman?

Would he have said the same thing about any man?


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honor_killing

An honor killing or shame killing is the murder of a member of a family, due to the perpetrators' belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonour upon the family, ...

Human Rights Watch defines "honor killings" as follows:
... The mere perception that a woman has behaved in a way that "dishonors" her family is sufficient to trigger an attack on her life.


I see that Twitter and Reddit and even 4chan have taken note of this, but the MSM seems to have missed it.


(Just as an aside, I find the expletive "motherfucker" to be pointless, weird, hugely vulgar and tinged with misogyny, and, while I have quite a colorful vocabulary I don't generally hesitate to use and come from the 60s when that one was rather popular, I have never used it in all my life.)
