Always ask before grabbing a pussy.

Hey, Donnie! Your Uncle Vicente from Mexico has a message for you:

Now, personally, I didn’t like this dude much when he was president of Mexico. Too right-wing. Too dumb. Too much the Mexican equivalent of Dubya Bush (and mang, is it AMAZING how much Donnie has managed to make Dubya look smart and likeable, too!) But I have to say this: Since he took up TV comedy, Vicente Fox Quesada has definitely come into his own.

Maybe Donnie should take notes.

Music for a Sunday: And the honeymoon bride began to cry…

The only song that seemed appropriate right now, with three of them raging in various parts of the North Atlantic and the Caribbean.

Wankers of the Week: Here comes Irma!


Crappy weekend, everyone! And an especially crappy one, no doubt, for everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma. May you all find safe shelter quickly, and may you lose nothing of value…unless you are a grifter-turned-presidunce or a right-wing politician or pundit specializing in climate-change denial. In which case, you totally fucking deserve the shitstorm that’s coming your way, particularly the ridicule. And here’s who else is getting what’s coming to them this week, in no particular order:

1. Jeff Fucking Payne. Not content to overstep the limitations of his police badge by arresting a nurse who only did her job by the book, he decided to overstep the limitations of his paramedic badge, too. And made the mistake of announcing just how mean, vindictive and stupid he is on his own bodycam. At this rate, he’ll be lucky to get hired as a dogcatcher.

2. Danielle Fucking Bregoli. For the love of all that’s holy, I’m begging you…don’t call her “ratchet”. A ratchet is a rather useful device. This little shit isn’t good for a goddamn thing, and her 15 minutes are just about expired, thank Goddess. Back to school you go, girl.

3. John Fucking McNesby. So, Black Lives Matter bad, Nazi cops good? Yeah, that about sums HIM up. So much for the City of Brotherly Love…


4. Joel Fucking Osteen. Telling people who’ve lost everything not to have a “victim mentality”? Gee, that sounds just like something a professional scamster posing as a “prosperity gospel” preacher would do! Can you NOT?

5. Jeff Fucking Sessions. Who the fucking fuckity fuck gets giddy at the prospect of deporting people who’ve done nothing to deserve it? THIS GUY. Who deserves the infamous “imprecatory prayer” to be said for him, right along with his equally racist boss and veep.

6. Jake Fucking Shaw. No, shooting a photojournalist is not “just doing my job”, officer. Remember who else made that excuse in vain?


7. Gareth Fucking Roberts. Well, well. Look who used to write for Doctor Who…and who just burned his last bridge to ever doing so again. Gonna go out on a limb here and say that he probably won’t have an awful lot of LGBT fans from now on, either.

8. Louise Fucking Richardson. If it’s not your job as vice-chancellor at Oxford to stop homophobia from poisoning the learning environment for students — then WHOSE IS IT??? And seriously — since when is it a student’s job to reform a fucked-up prof? Since NEVER. You have the power to fire the toxic ones, and you won’t. That’s fucking irresponsible. And the excuse that students shouldn’t be “sheltered” from bigotry is wearing awfully thin in a world where the bigots are the REAL sheltered ones…and they’re running out of cover, as they damn well should. So…why are you shielding them with institutional protection, again?

9. Paul Fucking Ryan. He was against the repeal of DACA before he was for it. If you ever wondered whether there are any consistent beliefs or principles in the far Repugnican right, you now have your answer, and it is a resounding NOOOOOOOO!


10. Rush Fucking Limbaugh. Climate change, just a ginned-up media “panic” to sell shit? Tell that to all the people who are being ordered to pay rent on properties where they can’t live, Rusty. That is, if you can still talk when they pull their fists out of what’s left of your teeth. And if I had my druthers, you’d be arrested for spreading disinformation that’s getting people killed. As well as for selling completely unnecessary shit. PS: And look who’s biting his tongue now that the “hoax” is proving all too real. And local. Ha, ha!

11. Ronald Fucking Coyne. He burned money in front of a homeless man…and he’ll be allowed back to Cambridge this fall. Not only did he abuse his privileges, he hasn’t the fuckingest clue just how many damn privileges he’s had that he can get away with abusing, endlessly, until the day they nail his coffin shut. Now THAT’s privilege!

12. Morris Fucking White. Pepper-spraying a trans person? Why no, that won’t get you arrested at ALL, snowflake! Aaaaand there go your rights, just like that. Good job!


13. Louise Fucking Linton. Because nothing says “I’m sorry” like your publicist…or those ravishing ballgowns you posed in for your latest shoot. Which, I assume, is what you were angling for when you put all those designer hashtags on your last Instagram. Pity that all the designer raiment in the world won’t cover the hot, flyblown mess that is your soul.

14. Jim Fucking Bakker. Hurricane Irma is coming — quick, everyone, look busy! And whatever you do, don’t buy his buckets-o-crap!

15. Theresa Fucking May. Pack your bags and be quick about it. Don’t make the nice nurses do it for you!


16. Hillary Fucking Clinton. Blaming Bernie Sanders for her loss? What chutzpah, considering that she cheated HIM out of a primary AND a presidency. And it’s thanks to her that we have Donnie Fucking Drumpf. Even though Bernie, despite being cheated, helped her campaign. Yeah, I’m listing her for that, and I’m NOT with her. DEAL WITH IT.

17. Larry Fucking Bucshon. No, dude, you know what’s a disgusting attempt to devalue human life? You, as a doctor, trying to keep people from getting healthcare..and to forbid women from getting needed medical procedures just because they happen to terminate a pregnancy. Sending you Sour Patch Kids candy as a protest, though? That’s brilliant. And apropos. And SWEET.

18. Eleftherios Fucking Tatsis. Demanding that gay people and people voting in favor of same-sex marriage be shot? What the hell kind of Christianity is THAT? Oh, I see…YOU get to be “only human”, but LGBT+ people don’t. Very convenient!


19. Chris Fucking Sevier. Waaa, waaaa, nobody wants to recognize your “marriage” to your computer? Well, that’s because your computer is not another person. And since you only did it to underscore what you think is wrong with same-sex marriage, well…I guess what you’re saying is that gay people aren’t people? In which case…what is there to prevent me saying that your “marriage” is invalid because it’s between two non-people, too? I mean, you’re not acting exactly HUMAN, are you?

20. Grady Fucking Judd. Oh sure, sheriff, you’re only doing your job. And your job, it seems, is making sure that non-white people in trouble with the law go to jail…or die in a hurricane, is that it? And then whining that your words have been “misconstrued”? Diddums.

21. Jeff Fucking Sessions. Still trying to jail a CodePink woman just for laughing at your inane KKKeebler Elf bullshit? Somebody sure has a thin skin.


22. Owen Fucking Shroyer. That bright little girl whose smart mama taught her how to cuss? She’s right. You ARE a fucking idiot. You can’t even get her gender right! PS: Ha, ha. Surrrrre, Owen, we believe you! PPS: And a double ha-ha to yer dumbass boss, too.

23. Peggy Fucking Noonan. You want people to leave standing a bunch of janky participation trophies, erected by racists giving the stink-finger to human rights, in honor of other racist, slave-owning losers who fucking seceded over the right to own slaves, and who are too dead to appreciate them anyway? You, madam, are a fucking idiotess.

24. Tomi Fucking Lahren. Ooooooo! Guess whose great-great-grandpa was an illegal immigrant? Yup. HERS. And now, she’s a hypocrite. Ha, ha!


25. Nigel Fucking Farage. Guess who’s about to speechify to a bunch of neo-Nazis in Germany? Yup. THIS guy. And he’ll be doing it at Spandau, no less.

26. Dinesh D’Fucking Souza. His latest libelous tome might as well be titled “Blame George Soros: The Book”. Because basically, that’s what it is. (Well, all right, maybe that’s not ALL it is. It should also be subtitled “The New and Unimproved Protocols of the Elders of Zion”.)

27. Doug Fucking Schweitzer. A $15 minimum wage means “employers won’t hire”? Bull-fucking-SHIT. If they can’t afford workers, they can’t be in business; it’s as simple as that. They CAN afford them, however, and the only thing that will suffer as a result of fairer pay is their profit margin. Which was more than healthy before. (Remember, profit is nothing but unpaid wages, not given to those to whom they are owing.) And if you don’t believe me, just take a trip to Seattle sometime and see how they, with both a $15 minimum wage (in US dollars!) AND a socialist city council member, are making out. (Spoiler: They’re doing great.)


28. Aung San Fucking Suu Kyi. It pains me to list her, but list her I must. The Rohingya Muslims of Burma deserve better from her, whom they used to support when she was the persecuted one. And really, when even Desmond Tutu is calling you out, you HAVE to know just how badly you’ve fucked up. PS: If you haven’t already…sign, sign, SIGN. Don’t turn a blind eye to it like she did.

29. Ann Fucking Coulter. Last week’s wank is this week’s own-goal. Ha, ha!

30. Kirk Fucking Cameron. Hurricane Irma is just God flexing his muscles and being a fuckheaded egotistical brat trying to show us who’s boss? Sounds to me like somebody’s projecting his own cockamamie ideas onto nature, AGAIN.


And finally, to all the fucking evangelical preachers who think God “sends” hurricanes to punish gay people. Never mind that most of the people in the paths of hurricanes are NOT gay (something like 90% of them, in fact). Never mind, indeed, that a lot of them are just as devoutly and fundamentalistically Christian as yourselves (after all, we ARE talking about the US south here, and also all the fundies in the various Caribbean islands, with the notable exception of Cuba, where such bullshit doesn’t fly, thanks to excellent public education and that terrible, TERRIBLE Marxist Castro-communism we keep hearing so much about). Never mind that the supposedly too gay-friendly Houston is also the home of Joel Fucking Osteen and countless other homophobic preachers just like you. Never mind, indeed, that the places in the world where same-sex marriage is legal already tend to be well out of hurricane country and God isn’t punishing THEM. No, you all keep believing that bullshit you preach. Your audience is diminishing, as is your political influence, and I’m sure hurricanes will play their own part in the diminution of it. After all, you’re too superstitious to recognize that science has a better explanation for why ‘canes hit there, and why they’re getting worse. You quite deserve to lose all your tithe-paying believers. It’s just a pity you’re not losing them fast enough.

Good night, and get fucked!

There is so much grossness to pick apart in here in this minute or so of footage. There’s dear ol’ Donnie, hiding behind Ivanka’s skirts, blatantly using her as a shield to deflect criticism (sorry, asshole, even lovely daughters can turn out that way IN SPITE OF you, not because of you). There’s also the infantilization of a 35-year-old WOMAN as a Daddy’s Girl (in which Ivanka seems to participate quite happily, if the childishly flirtatious way she says “Hi, North Dakota” is any indication). It’s like she never grew up past the age of 15. And while it’s seemingly not a bad thing that they’re close, what the hell is she doing in the White House? She has a family and career of her own; it’s not like she HAS to be there. In fact, it’s highly inappropriate that she’s there at all, given the rather strict (if fairly recent) ethical rules against involving unqualified family members too much in the affairs of state. And Ivanka IS involved, as are her brothers, Eric and Donald Jr.

And last, but certainly not least, there’s that bit at the end, where it’s all “give us a kiss, honey”. She was just walking off when he pulled her back in — did you notice that? Ugh.

Remember, this IS the same man who barged in on teenage beauty pageant contestants while they were changing in the dressing room — and BRAGGED about it. He’s the same man who said he grabs women by the pussy and that they let him do it because he’s famous. He’s also the same one who famously said that if Ivanka wasn’t his daughter, he’d be dating her.

Yuck. What the hell IS she doing in the White House, anyway?

And for that matter — what’s HE still doing there, too?

So, one Yank > 1,000 North Koreans? Good to know. And what are South Koreans — the US’s allies — worth?

If this guy wants to nuke North Korea, or even just conventionally bomb it, I say strap him to the warhead and let HIM go first. Hey, he’s worth more than a thousand of the people he wants to kill, right?

Wankers of the Week: Hurricane Donnie hits Houston


Crappy weekend, everyone! And a very crappy one to the unlucky folks in Houston, who are treading water right now, STILL. Hang tight, y’all, you haven’t been forgotten, even if your presidunce HAS decided to turn your misfortune into one big, dumb egoboo session. And here’s who else is doggy-paddling in a sea of doo-doo this week, in no particular order:

1. Joel Fucking Osteen. If you need a good reason why megachurches should be taxed, look no further. This preacher-man is all too happy to milk that ol’ cash cow during fair weather, but during foul, is he practicing what he preaches? NOOOOOOOO! Instead, he’s busy schmoozing for even MORE dinero he doesn’t actually need, and won’t be using to help anyone who DOES need it. PS: Lame excuse is limping awfully hard, dude.

2. Cathy Fucking Miller. And while we’re on the subject of whited sepulchres preaching one thing and practicing another, how about her? She doesn’t “condone” same-sex weddings…which will happen whether or not she’s there to approve. And whether or not she’s willing to make any money furnishing them a cake.

3. Bobby Fucking Ritter. Aren’t tattoos cool? Not only do they make you look badass (sometimes), they also make you look like a plain ol’ ass when people recognize yours in a neo-Nazi march where your face is covered. Busted!


4. Paul Fucking LePage. Hey Maine, you might want to look into impeaching your hateful-ass governor and barring him from politics for life. Just sayin’.

5. Renee Fucking Baio. No, you know whose ugliness knows no bounds, lady? YOURS. Don’t bother praying, because if there IS a God, I’m pretty sure she’s sick and tired of you and your husband’s conspiracy-theorist filth.

6. Theodore Fucking Beale. Guy who writes crap fiction (including far-right manuals on How to Alpha Male, in which he glorifies rape) calls leftists “liars”, smears them with a proven-false channer campaign claiming that they support domestic violence (read: woman abuse), then demands that someone read his shitty book that no one in their right mind would. And he thinks he’s on a level with Aristotle, too. I would charge him for the new irony meter he owes me, but even the manufacturer is fresh out.


7. Sebastian Fucking Gorka. Oh, what a shame. Wile E. Nazi is out of the White House! He may be gone, but he is far from forgotten. And he’s making sure that everyone can hear him whining about it for miles around, too. PS: Hey, Sooper Genius…did you also get your driver’s licence from a Hungarian diploma mill? Ha, ha.

8. Jillian Fucking Mele. Riddle me this: Why do police need tanks and grenades to handle protests? Answer: They don’t. Unless, of course, you’re looking to generate excuses for a fascist police state, as all of FUX Snooze apparently is.

9. Joshua Fucking Witt. Some people are too dumb to boil toast. Others, too stupid to get a knife out of its packaging without stabbing themselves and then blaming it on Antifa and their own dumb fashy haircuts.


10. Peter Fucking Cvjetanovic. Oh looky, the Angry Snowflake Boy is still mad. But he wants PEACE, you guys! Meaning, he wants you to forget all about the fact that he joined a racist hate group on a racist hate march to protect a racist hate statue. He just wants to get his poli-sci degree without being frowned at! How about FUCK NO!?

11. Tom Fucking Llamas. PSA for journos who don’t get it: People taking food from supermarkets that can’t sell it aren’t “looting”, they are HUNGRY. And they are cleaning up what would only get thrown away afterwards anyway. Didn’t Katrina teach you anything? And BTW: What color were those “looting” people, anyway? Betcha they were black! PS: Sign, sign, sign!

12. Richard Fucking Preston. And speaking of racist blame-assigners: Get a load of who fired off a gun while yelling “nigger-nigger-nigger” at a black man. Yeah. This fucking Kluker. Who thinks the authorities in Charlottesville were responsible for letting violence break out. I guess, in a way, the dumbfuck is right. I mean, who else granted all these Klukers and neo-Nazis and other assorted “alt”-righturds a permit to be there, anyway?


13. Kellyanne Fucking Conway. While Donnie Tinyhands is busy bragging about the crowds he drew in Houston (without actually meeting with any flood victims!), she’s peddling “alternative facts” to Patwa on his crapaganda show. And they’re so “alternative” that she’s managed to somehow magically turn him into the essence of humility and Higher Callings. Irony meter sales are off the charts, folks.

14. Ann Fucking Coulter. Because there is literally nothing that the Coultergeist, with her reverse Midas touch, can’t turn into a mountain of horseshit, how about blaming the former mayor of Houston, who happened to be a gay woman, for the hurricane? Never mind that the current mayor is a black man who is not, to my knowledge, gay. And of course, she had to throw climate-change denialism into the mix, too. Because like #13, she’s a bleach-brained wank whose bread and butter is “alternative facts”!

15. Eric Fucking Hauser. Just think, kiddies, this racist — oh sorry, “alt-right” — numpty nincompoop used to be an assistant principal of an actual school. And now he’s a copyright-infringer who’s on the hook for stealing a cartoon frog who was stolen countless times already to justify racism, fascism, Islamophobia, and Bog only knows what all else. And he wrote what sounds like the world’s shittiest children’s book around said frog, too. But hey! At least he’s paying for it. And all the proceeds are going to CAIR. Ha, ha!


16. Christopher Fucking Cantwell. Boo-hoo, Crying Nazi doesn’t like his new nickname! Well, suck it up, buttercup. And fuck yo’ feelings!

17. Tomi Fucking Lahren. And this week, in Most Unsurprising News Ever, White Grievance Cheerleader gets new gig at FUX Snooze, Home of the Racist Old Poop Leg Cam! Yaaaaaaay…snzzzzzzzzzz.

18. Warren Fucking Love. Lynching those who “vandalize” statues that should never have been erected (during the Jim Crow era, for obvious reasons) in the first place? Why no, that’s not at all related to the wrongs that statue removal is trying to redress!


19. Roger Fucking Grigsby. I don’t know what disgusts me more about this now-unmasked white supremacist: The fact that he contributed to a known Kluker leader’s political campaign, or that for nearly 40 years, he used to run a Chinese restaurant whose name might as well have been “Ah So”. No, dude, you’re not being persecuted for being white, you’re being exposed and criticized for being a fucking idiot. And it sure looks good on you that you’ll have less money to throw at the KKK from now on.

20. Chris Fucking Hedges. False equivalence much? Read up on Nazi Germany again, bucko. You’ll see that nowhere in history was Hitler inspired to create the Third Reich while getting bopped upside the head by leftists, nor were “both sides” to blame for what he did to the Jews. That fallacy is doubly disgusting coming from a supposed progressive. But please, keep playing right into Donnie’s tiny hands. He can use all the help he can get right now, with his popularity swirling so close to the bottom of the bowl.

21. Melania Fucking Drumpf. Why?


That’s why. Also, that “FLOTUS” hat. Tacky Onassis, you sure put the ass in “class”.

22. Sarah Fucking Palin. Too bad, so sad, Screech got laughed out of court. Diddums!

23. Jason Fucking Spencer. Thanks so much for that creepy “warning” to LaDawn Jones, dude. I’m sure she’ll totally take it to heart! #HaHaNOPE

24. Marc Fucking Theissen. And again with the false “Antifa is as bad as fascists, if not worse” narrative. People punching Nazis are as bad as Augusto Pinochet, who had leftists thrown from helicopters over the Pacific ocean? Allllll righty then, stupid. And surprise, surprise: he used to work for Dubya, and now works for the AEI, too. One of the stinkiest right-wing stink tanks, in other words. No wonder he loves him some Pinochetists. Free markets and enslaved people, y’all!


25. Mark Fucking Taylor. I’m sorry, but as soon as I hear someone prattling about “Illuminati” doing anything — even walking a dog — I automatically know that nothing they say is to be taken seriously, but only pointed and laughed at.

26. Kris Fucking Kobach. Oh, look who’s now writing for Bitefart! As if running Kansas into the ground wasn’t lucrative enough. Yeah, bubba, that’s not gonna hurt your reputation one bit…but only because it’s already in the shitter!

27. Rolando Fucking Pablos. Send prayer instead of aid? Yeah, that’ll help. Dude, it’s not God air-dropping parcels of relief supplies out of the sky. Even if your cargo-cult mentality would hold that it is.


28. David Fucking Clarke. While Milwaukee is breathing a huge sigh of relief at losing the Cowboy Fascist Idiot, Washington is bracing itself for a veritable hurricane of stoopid…and it’s not like they don’t have the perfect storm of idiocy already going on over there.

29. Patsy Fucking Capshaw Fucking Skipper. Why the double Fucking? Because that’s how disgraceful it is to be both a sore loser AND a stinking racist. And claiming that a White House only “honors God” when the resident is a white right-winger, too.

30. Paul Fucking Joseph Fucking Watson. Why the double Fucking? Because that’s how jaw-droppingly idiotic he is for saying that George Orwell, who joined the POUM militia in Catalonia during the Spanish Civil War, would have “hated” Antifa. Dude, the POUM were Antifa. Books: Do you know what they are, and can you even read them? Or are you just doubleplusdumb?


And finally, to all the idiots who think Obama golfed during Hurricane Katrina while his wife went shopping. No, dumbasses, you’re thinking of Dubya and his Auntie Condi (who bought Ferragamo shoes). Obama wasn’t president then, but he did meet with evacuees from Katrina as a senator from Illinois. And when there WAS a hurricane on his White House watch, he was actually presidenting. Unlike you-know-who and his trophy, who barely got their shoes wet.

Good night, and get fucked!

The Blaze is burning out

Gee. All of a sudden I don’t feel so bad about running this here little ol’ never-made-a-dime blog. Because remember all those professional ‘wingers and their whiz-bang “news” outlets (note the quotes, there for a reason)? Well, one of them — a total trash fire from the get-go — has finally burned through all its financing, and is now going up in thick, black smoke. And surprise, surprise…it’s Biff’s!

Or maybe NOT so surprising after all. When Biff left FUX Snooze, he had nowhere to go but deeper into the fascist fringe than even they dared to tread. Oh sure, he pretends he’s not a Nazi, the very opposite of a Nazi, and anyway (so he says, and so say all the cons who are way too close to that particular tire-fire to avoid getting singed), “The Nazis were SOCIALISTS, they said so right in the name!” And yes, he Godwin’d both Obama and the young Norwegians murdered by an ACTUAL Nazi. (This even though Biff owns Nazi paraphernalia, which he has made a repeated point of wearing and displaying…in the name of freedumb. Also, he had nothing but kind words for home-grown OG Nazis.)

But if it seemed like Biff was onto something at first, with a crapaganda outlet catering to those who considered FUX a liberal fake-news channel, it never really got much traction. For one thing, he had to fake-cry too many times (and way too obviously). For another, his main competition for the FUX Snooze Leg Cam, the White Grievance Cheerleader herself, dared to let slip that she was kinda-sorta pro-choice. That was a no-no, and Tomi had to go-go. (She’s now perched awkwardly in front of that very same Leg Cam, ha ha.)

And last, but certainly not least, there was Breitbart…which, far from dying along with its hot-headed founder (although it should have), got a major cash infusion from some “libertarian” Nazi-symps who weren’t fucking around. And while Bitefart’s down now (thanks to a concerted campaign of advertiser boycotting), it’s not out yet. Steve Bannon, who served as Donnie’s adviser briefly and yet still far too long, took it on a turn so hard to starboard that Biff just couldn’t keep up. And now he’s back on board. That pretty much eats up the entire neo-Nazi — oh sorry, “alt-right” — following that Biff was going for.

So, between the battered but still sputtering Bitefart and the loss of his main slice of red meat, Biff’s dumpster fire is now rapidly dwindling to soot and cinders. One almost feels sorry for him, but remember, kiddies…this is a guy who likes to fake-cry. Don’t put it past him to bawl for more bucks. He probably won’t invest them into his channel, though. He’ll just go crying all the way to the bank, like all the pay-yourself-first CEOs do.

And as Cenk says…it’s all proof that no, conservatives don’t know how to run a business any better than progressives. Because when’s the last time you saw a hard-hitting progressive news outlet go kaputt like The Blaze?

Or, for that matter, a little ol’ pay-it-no-mind-and-no-bucks socialist blog like this one?

Cops Behaving Badly: Georgia’s “finest” at work — affirming racism!

OMG, this is unbelievable…except that it totally isn’t. After all, this is Cobb County, Georgia…where racism is just good ol’ Southern heritage and tradition at work. And even the cops affirm it, however inadvertently this one let the (open) secret slip:

Cobb County police Chief Mike Register told Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne that after Channel 2 Action News submitted an open-records request, he and his command staff looked at the video.

“Remember, we only kill black people. We only kill black people, right?” the Cobb County police officer can be heard saying on the video.

On Friday, they opened an internal investigation.

Register said the officer heard on video is Lt. Greg Abbott. Register said Abbott has been assigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of the investigation.

According to Register, the recording is part of a DUI stop. The woman said she was hesitant to put her hands down to pick up a cellphone because she didn’t want to get shot.

“No matter what context it was said, it shouldn’t have been said,” Register said.

Suri Chadha Jimenez, who is representing the driver in the case, said he believes the officer was being sarcastic after the woman “gave him some lip.”

“It makes you cringe when you hear it. It’s unacceptable,” Jimenez said.

Cringe? Yeah, I would hope to shout that it does.

But this line is more than merely cringeworthy. Even uttered sarcastically, it’s still the unacceptable truth that police in Georgia (and, let’s be real, practically everywhere that blacks are a minority, including beautiful liberal multicultural Toronto) really are that fucking racist. They’ll stop black people more. They’ll demand to see black people’s IDs more. They’ll frisk black people more. They’ll break down black people’s doors more. They’ll plant drugs on them more. And when it comes to the trigger-happy confrontational ones, they’ll shoot (and kill) black people more.

‘Course, Georgia being Georgia, with its long history of slavery, the Confederacy, Jim Crow, the KKK, resistance to non-white voter registration and school integration and yadda yadda yadda oh just read some fucking history already, it stands to reason that this cop wasn’t really kidding when he said that they only shoot (and kill) black people. Police in the US south are the direct descendants of slave patrols, and busting uppity niggruhs is what they were originally and traditionally expected to do. The South may have lost the Civil War, and been dragged through Emancipation kicking and screaming (or at least its wealthy planters were), but the one thing that hasn’t changed in all this time is the color of the people who felt the lash of the law the hardest.

White thugs? They get a free pass for a lot of things, especially in the US south. And if the cops MUST bust them, they’ll handcuff and frog-march them as gently as they can. They won’t rough ’em up unless maybe they’re on drugs or acting agitated. Dylann Roof was only an anomaly in that the police were actually willing to arrest him. They didn’t, however, maltreat him as they routinely do black arrestees; they actually stopped for fast food along the way because the little snowflake was hungry.

And when the white thug also happens to be a cop? Well, you get scenes like the above, in which a cop tries to “reassure” a white woman he’s stopped by pointing out that she’s in no physical danger. By telling her that he’d only shoot her if she were black.

I don’t know about you, but I’m white. And I wouldn’t feel the least bit reassured to know that the color of my skin, or rather lack thereof, is all that’s standing between me and a police bullet.

PS: Oh looky, the fine 28-year veteran has just pulled a “you can’t fire me, I quit!” Typical.
