One of the prominent Twitter videos of the “Shut Down DC” protest is of a bearded, frantically twerking homo (how do I know? I just don’t think a hetero and presumably male–the beard is a giveaway–would twerk in skin tight shorts) while a fat person of indeterminate sex (but no beard) wearing a t-shirt that reads “silence = death” stretched over substantial forward facing protuberances (evidence of XX chromosomes?) throws handfuls of confetti in the air, cheered on by normal looking women (XX’s) holding a banner “ban pipelines now”. You don’t know what “twerking” is? You are fortunate. You want to know? I warn you, you can’t “unsee” it. Another video shows firemen putting out a dumpster fire–no, not the demonstration, a real dumpster fire set by the clean air freaks themselves. I don’t know what came first, the twerking or the dumpster fire, but they certainly function as metaphors for each other.
Other protesters held signs that read “Capitalism is Killing The Planet,” “Green New Deal” and “Bezos Earns Our Planet Burns.” In this case, the “counter protest” was lots of tweets: user @sasquasages wrote, “Everyone at #ShutDownDC… “get a job.” User @UndeadDad tweeted, “I’m sure @realDonaldTrump thanks you for your tireless efforts in getting him a second term.” “Thanks #ShutDownDC for all the doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals who couldn’t make it to their a.m. appointments,” wrote Twitter user @kristinleigh_93. #ShutDownDC is forcing more emissions into the air by making cars sit longer. Great Job Girls and Boys (and other genders)! Someone did not think that through..blocking streets and turning 30 min commutes into 2 hr commutes to reduce carbon emissions is peak idiocy “
These killjoys probably never even got to see the dumpster fire, let alone the king of twerk, who contributed visual pollution to the air pollution. Another kind of pollution was the miasma of hypocrisy from certain other unnamed quarters. The annual Polk County Iowa) Democratic Party Steak Fry yesterday, featured every presidential candidate and many national Democratic figures donning aprons to cook about 10,500 steaks for potential voters, which the Republican party of Iowa couldn’t resist butchering…… “2020 Democrats are set to attend the Polk County Democrats’ fundraiser tomorrow, and there couldn’t be more at steak. As the candidates continue beefing over whose extreme proposals go further left, it’s clear this election will be a cook-off between socialism and President Trump’s winning, America First agenda. 2020 candidates have turned themselves into a laughing stock with their outrageous misteaks and out-of-touch proposals:
- Kamala Harris recently said she would create incentives to “encourage” Americans to eat less meat.
- Cory Booker has said that meat consumption would kill the planet. Booker, who is vegan, would also take away subsidies from the meat and dairy industries.
- Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg would implement a meat tax.
- Pete Buttigieg also accused cheeseburger-loving Americans as being “part of the problem”.
- Joe Biden said the Green New Deal, which would cost $93,000,000,000,000, “doesn’t go too far”.
“Whether it’s forcing Americans to eat less cheeseburgers or getting rid of farting cows, Democrats’ rare, half-cooked ideas are struggling to find support. Iowans will certainly take note of their ridiculous hypocrisy–as they attend a steak fry after pontificating about limiting meat consumption. “The Steak Fry will be a great opportunity for caucus-goers to grill 2020 Democrats on their extreme policies that would limit Iowans’ freedoms and liberties,” said Jeff Kaufmann, Chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa. “As they continue butchering their positions, it’s clear the Democratic agenda would steer us in the wrong direction.” If this isn’t a Democratic dumpster fire….
Since dumpster fires figure so prominently in this post, I will close with this: “…in prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is, not what in fact the prison says it is.” Who said that? Joe Biden at the LGBTQ presidential forum on Friday. Just to clarify Joe, does this mean that a man who says he’s a woman gets to join the women’s prison population? That certainly won’t cause any problems, especially if he’s in prison for sexual assault! For more bright ideas from the “mind of man”, tune in for my next post.
