Full Frontal Thursday: Racism & Anti-Semitism

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam finally shines the spotlight on the racism and hatred that has exploded exponentially over the past few months, now that Jews have been openly targeted.

Black people have been the target for ages and I’ve talked about the dog-whistles and coded language used by the fascists and nationalists in the past. It isn’t new.

Full Frontal Thursday: Counting Down to the Midterms

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam shines the spotlight on the group that she feels is being targeted the most by hate. I disagree, but it’s her platform, eh?

Counting down to the midterm elections. Our ballots are in the mail.

Full Frontal: 17 October Edition

I completely missed Full Frontal with Samantha Bee last week, due to the baseball playoffs and hectic schedules of all sorts. Here it is. The regularly scheduled installment will post at its usual time tomorrow.

Thursday Thoughts

I’m working on a post that should be done by the weekend. It’s my review of a blogger-to-blogger (B2B) ‘interview’ which took over a week to complete, but could easily have been done in two hours. It was an interesting experience. The so-called interviewer had no interest in my blog or anything that I had to say, and their bullshit questions made it pretty obvious.

I even gave them the option of not doing the ‘interview’ since I wasn’t interested in having my time wasted by a complete asshole. I have better things to do.

Here’s a bit of music to inspire my creativity while I get that post put together.

Full Frontal Thursday: More Kavanaugh

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam shows that her new boob job has affected her brain somewhat. I guess she gets a pass for that since even the best of the late-night talk-show hosts have their cringe-worthy moments.

For example, the only man who has had his life destroyed from accusations of sexual abuse is Bill Cosby. None of the other famous men accused since his trial and conviction have had to appear before a judge. Oh, right – now that he’s been put away, all the harassment stopped. As far as most people are concerned, he was the only predator out there who needed to be imprisoned.

Why are people still talking about sexual harassment if it all ended with him?

That was a rhetorical question. Don’t strain your brain for an answer.

Full Frontal Thursday: Fascist-watch & Food Carts

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam acknowledges the fact that fascists have been shoving their alternative facts and alternative realities into mainstream things for some time, including politics. She decides to shine the spotlight on some of the up-and-comers who finally removed their bedsheets and pointy hats.

She also points out the fact that undocumented immigrants work in the hospitality industry, which includes cleaning up hotel rooms and preparing food. If you hate immigrants then here’s a suggestion: cook your own fucking food at home and don’t go out to eat anywhere. I would love to have a dining experience which didn’t involve seeing some fat, inbred, Trump-supporting tub of goo shoveling mountains of mashed potatoes into its slobbering gob.

Sam ends the show with a little hint about her show’s look. I guess she’s changing the set in September and called on her extended family to help.

On-Point Sunday

How Far Back?

The gaslighting and race-baiting from the neo-fascists has exploded over the past week as this country is taken back to the 1950s.

This is what “taking the country back” meant when Drumpf used it as his political platform, and what it continues to mean for he and his racially-charged supporters.

As expected, they resort to the logical fallacies listed in the chart below in order to defend the indefensible.

History repeats itself, and this country isn’t immune to regression. So much for “never again.”

Full Frontal Thursday: Singapore Summit, “Crisis Actors,” & Irish Abortion Referendum

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the meeting between Baby-Hands McDrumpf and Kim Jong Un. Drumpf embraces yet another dictator while insulting and turning his back on America’s allies and further alienating this country from the rest of the world. Reminds me of the way abusive partners alienate their victims from family and friends in order to continue and escalate their abuse.

Next, she points out how the victims of the school shooting in Parkland are being targeted, harassed, and bullied by the usual cadre of trolls infesting the internet. This conclave of trolls, led by Alex Jones and his ilk, love to discredit people by mockingly deriding them as “crisis actors” or “social justice warriors” and gaslight with propaganda, conspiracy theories and lies.

Finally, it appears that Ireland joined the 21st century by bringing women’s birth control rights out of the 18th century to the present. Since this country is going backwards by leaps and bounds, it is refreshing to see another take a teeny-tiny step forward.

Loving Day

Today is Loving Day…it’s a great thing. From Wikipedia:

“Loving Day is an annual celebration held on June 12, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia which struck down all anti-miscegenation laws remaining in sixteen U.S. states citing “There can be no doubt that restricting the freedom to marry solely because of racial classifications violates the central meaning of the equal protection clause.”[1][2][3] In the United States, anti-miscegenation laws were U.S. state laws banning interracial marriage, mainly forbidding marriage between non-whites and whites…The “Loving” side of the U.S. Supreme Court case consisted of Mildred and Richard Loving, a black woman and a white man. They first met when she was 11 and he was 17. He was a family friend and over the years they started courting. After she became pregnant, they got married in Washington, D.C., in 1958, when she was 18.[7] Reportedly, Mildred didn’t realize that interracial marriage was illegal, and they were arrested a few weeks after they returned to their hometown north of Richmond, Virginia. They pleaded guilty to charges of “cohabiting as man and wife, against the peace and dignity of the Commonwealth,” and avoided jail time by agreeing to leave Virginia. They moved to Washington, D.C., and began legal action by writing to U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy referred the case to the American Civil Liberties Union. After the Warren Court unanimously ruled in favor of the young couple, they returned to Virginia, where they lived with their three children. Mildred Loving died May 5, 2008 at the age of 68. Richard Loving had died about thirty-three years earlier in a car accident. Each June 12, the anniversary of the ruling, Loving Day events around the country mark the advances of mixed-race couples.”

I still get irked about the use of the term “race” and “mixed-race.” Yes, they are terms in the human lexicon that won’t go away. Because of this, many don’t want to accept or admit or acknowledge this simple fact: human beings are an entire race. Horse races, dog races, go-kart races, track-and-field races, etc. – those are “multi-racial” things! Any one of us who enjoy shows and movies such as Star Wars, Star Trek, or Doctor Who, for example, just might be a bit less inclined to think of another human being as a completely different “race.” I know that I’m hoping for too much in that regard.

Even in this day and age, there are people who go into paroxysms of rage if they even see people of different skin colours talking with each other. Their craniums implode if they see people of different skin colours, faiths, or nationalities holding hands. How ironic that those types accuse me of being “racially charged.” It’s laughably stupid. Just as they are.

I’m guessing that they are people who might have nobody special in their lives, because nobody sane would want to be around them for any length of time. Note the qualifier in that sentence, pea-brain.

If you are like me and have a special someone along with family and friends, enjoy this day and share the love. Here are three songs about the best things that love has to offer.
