Alex Jones’ Heartbreak: Today in Tweets

Alex Jones had a long night

By David Futrelle

In the wake of last night’s missile strikes on Syria, Trump is declaring “mission accomplished!” (Haven’t we heard this before?) Meanwhile, his fans on the far right, from literal Nazi Assad lovers to not-quite-Nazi America Firsters are crying foul. Alex Jones is literally crying.

Alex Jones seems to disagree.

Apparently it’s all the fault of the Deep State.

Meanwhile, every right-wing shithead that has spent the past several years demonizing brown-skinned refugees as terrorists is suddenly a humanitarian.

Among those feeling betrayed, Ann Coulter, who spent the day retweeting angry alt-rightists denouncing their former God Emporer Trump.  There is a slight irony here.

Coulter also retweeted this legitimately cute video, which I thought was a nice change from her usual horribleness.

Not all right-wing racists are mad at Trump, though.

There are several problems with that last tweet, not least the fact that this is not actually a picture of Damascus.

Back here in the US, Starbucks is calling the cops on black men for … going to Starbucks? And the cops are arresting them.

These days I think we can all relate to this:

Omg yes, the pecans thing!!!!
I’m alright, getting better of my depression and stuff. Found a therapy that works, at last.
If you have twitter, do click my name to be led to mine! I’d love having you all there.

I interacted with David and Auntie Alias a few times but naturally they didn’t recognize me. :p

You have a cool twitter timeline, Chiomara. I shall follow you!

(Also, I need to get a twitter account which isn’t in my real everyday name. I have enormous cishetmale privilege but even so, I’ve been stalked before and it wasn’t fun.)

Air strikes on Syria will just kill innocent civilians and strengthen ISIS

The incompetence of our leaders never ceases to amaze me

Hi, Chiomara!

OT, but this Finnish story has an (in my opinion) amusing twist.

https://yle.fi/uutiset/3-10154837

What do you say, if you’re a medium counseling a newly divorced woman who’s coping with her heartbreak? One thing you might say is:

I see dildos in beautiful wooden boxes

The woman, Tea Latvala, whose medium years ago told her this line, later became a small entrepreneur sex toy designer – that’s what the story is about. She also eventually found a new love, while still struggling with prejudice and lewd attitudes about her business.

@ chiomara

Hey you’re back! So happy to see you and that you’re ok. Wondered what you were up to. I keep reading the Guardian ‘South America’ section waiting for ‘Mystery woman leads revolution and overthrows government’. Haven’t seen that yet, but I guess that means you’re still working behind the scenes. I like that; it’s subtle.

Mmm, the black coffee of Mordor. Which I shall not order here.

That reminds me, I once wrote a LOTR altverse fanfic, set in Appalachia, where Saruman was the CEO of a large corporate coffee chain who wanted to bulldoze Gondor Hollow. (It seemed like a good idea at the time.). I should see if the link is still active.

Re: blackmailing Trump, that only works if he has a sense of shame, and if his followers have functioning moral compasses, and if his detractors don’t already know he’s a grotesque, lecherous yam with a penchant for trafficked underage models. At this point, there are no new revelations that would move the needle. Evangelicals don’t care about all the adultery and groping, and they don’t care that Trump has never read the Bible and rarely sets foot in a church. Trump is the embodiment of white patriarchy that their religion demands. He hates all the same people they hate. The only thing that would make them turn on him is if he suddenly started advocating for immigrants, women, and gun control.

Hi Chiomara !! Glad to see you back! Hope all is well with you.

Peter couldn’t tolerate the cultural Marxist (i.e not horrifically racist and right-wing) atmosphere in Sweden and moved to Norway.

Then Norway called him up for military service and he moved to England.

How very nationalistic and alpha.

Content Advisory: this post contains bitter sarcasm…

re: Starbucks trespassing video… it’s obvious from the film that the perpetrators were Being Black In Public (an arrestable offense in itself), what the film doesn’t show is the Events leading to Starbucks’ employees calling the police:. specifically, were the perpetrators ACTING Black In Public?? After all, Philadelphia is a Jim Crow state, amirite?

off-topic, there’s a lawsuit against a right-wing votor suppression organization, Slate has a write-up

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/04/how-an-anti-kkk-law-could-bring-down-a-notorious-voter-suppression-group.html

Interesting, and very legally sound, even in these trumpian times!

It’s good to see you again, Chiomara! It’s been lovely to see people reappearing lately – like Nicola Luna, and Sinkable John and even Scildfreja was MIA earlier, for what felt like ages which was Just Not On. (there have been several other lovely people coming back, but I have a bordering-on-significantly-messing-with-ordinary-life problem with remembering names; no slight is intended).
Hoping for still more returnees! I always get such a lot, both info and pleasure, out of reading the smart people around here.

There was a time where a particular person commenting constantly was driving people away.
Said person is (probably) gone now.
