I’ve been baking the past few days because we *finally* got summer here in the SF Bay area — and boy howdy, we got it with a vengeance. Broke records all around the Bay area on Sunday, and Saturday wasn’t much cooler.

So anyhow, in the aftermath of a lesbian black woman saving the life of an anti-gay David Duke supporting bigot who was attacked by what appears to have been a lone wolf white Bernie Bro, the tighty righties have their panties in a bunch about how those mean lefties are coarsening the public discourse. Like this leftie threatening violence:

Err, yeah.

Or this liberal threatening violence:

Err, ah. Okay. Well, I’m sure this guy has to be a liberal:

No? Okay, so how about this guy who shot someone outside a Milo Yiannopoulos speech? He was clearly a liberal, right.

Uhm, no. He was wearing a Trump hat and had told his wife he was carrying his gun with him to the event so he could kill some liberals.

Okay, so let’s get this straight. You have some liberals saying that we should impeach Trump, one of whom, out of all the millions saying that, decided to start taking potshots at Republicans. Then you got right wingers saying that killing liberals is a great idea, *lots* of right wingers saying that, you can’t throw a rock at Stormfront or Brietbart or the Fox News comment section without hitting one of the right wingers saying that, and that means that liberals are the ones advocating violence.

Yeah, global warming is real, and it’s apparently baked the fucking brains out of half of America. Just sayin’.

Let’s see… what changed between four years ago and now?

Oh yeah, that’s right. Four years ago we had a n****er in the White House, and now we got a white guy (well, a tangerine guy, anyhow). So it was fine to talk about Second Amendment Solutions and all that crap about killing government officials back then. But today? Nosir!

Nosirree, no racism there on the GOP side of the bench, nope, nohow.

More than 4,000 blacks were lynched by the KKK and associated groups between 1877 and 1950. And this is not counting people like Emmett Till, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, Addie Mae Collins, and Denise McNair who were killed by KKK terrorism after 1950.

For anybody who has half a brain cell to rub together, it’s clear that the KKK was a racist terror group. But of course, racists generally don’t have half a brain cell to rub together, which is why Georgia Rep. Tommy Benton (R-Klan) said last fall that the KKK “was not so much a racist thing but a vigilante thing to keep law and order” that also “made a lot of people straighten up.” Well, I guess Denise McNair straightened up after she was killed by the KKK. Though what kind of crimes she could have committed at 11 years of age that justified the death penalty eludes me, but she’s definitely not committing crimes anymore, yessiree.

So now the state of Georgia has appointed him to the committee in charge of the state’s Civics curriculum. Where, apparently, he will be free to push guidelines saying that Abraham Lincoln was a criminal for stealing fine Southern gentlemen’s property (i.e., their black slaves).

Just as you think maybe these inbred backwoods cretins are about ready to join the 21st century, they come out and prove they haven’t even reconciled with the 20th century yet, much less the 21st century…

Really?

So how’s about this, Twitter Troll in Chief: If the terrorists who struck at the London Bridge / Borough Market had been carrying guns, a lot more people would have died. If they’d had guns, it would have looked a lot like the Bataclan Theater attack in Paris, where 89 people died. But because they only had knives and a truck, only 7 people died.

In short, yeah, this was a victory for UK gun control. A total of 130 people died in the Paris attack, where the attackers were heavily armed with semiautomatic weapons and a lot of rounds of ammunition. A total of 7 people died in the London attack where the attackers were armed with knives and a van. That’s a helluva lot less people than 130.

Of course, His Fraudulency Donald the Trump isn’t the only person trolling. Both of the candidates for Prime Minister in the UK are trolling, hard. Corbyn claims that this shows that the UK interventions in the Middle East are having blowback that endangers British lives for no gain for Britain. May claims that Corbyn is playing politics with the lives of innocent British citizens, while at the same time claiming that the solution to terrorism in the UK is to censor the Internet. Which is, uhm, playing politics with the lives of innocent British citizens — this is something she’s wanted to do for a long time as the “Queen of Mean”.

Meanwhile, here in the United States our copycat terrorists are right wing terrorists, like that nutjob in Portland who killed two men who interfered with his harassment of two Muslim girls and then yelled in court, “You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism. You hear me? Die.” And what does the Twitter Troll In Chief have to say about that?

CRICKETS

But he *does* have this to say:

Which travel ban would have stopped the Portland terrorist, uhm, how? And the “rights” he’s talking about appear to be the right to, uhm, say nasty things to Muslims. Exactly the same right that the Portland terrorist exercised to the point of killing two men who were interfering with his right to terrorize two young Muslim girls.

What a fucking asshole.

That’s all.

Trump claimed that Comey had lost the support of the field agents inside the FBI. Acting Director Andrew McCabe says that is not true.

Soon to be former acting director McCabe, methinks.

Meanwhile it has cooled down nicely here in the Silly Cone Valley, and The Mighty Fang is taking advantage of multimedia Cat TV, sitting in front of the patio sliding door’s screen door (said sliding door is open, of course, to allow cool air into the house) watching — and smelling, and hearing — the world go by. His nose is twitching left and right, his ears are twitching left and right, his head is twitching left and right, watching birds and rodents and things I can’t see flutter about outside. Ah, to be a cat, and so easily entertained… at least he’s given me my chair back. That was a thing for a while!

Meanwhile, in New Orleans, precious white snowflakes protested the removal of yet another participation trophy for losing a war. It appears that most of the pro-participation-trophy protestors are from out of town.

A reminder: Jefferson Davis was probably the most hated man in the South in 1865, widely derided as out-of-touch, as being incompetent and the cause of the Confederate loss, and as having caused undue amounts of suffering by drafting farmers who were trying to put food on their families’ tables and by not forcing the plantation owners to have their slaves grow food for those whose men had been drafted. The fact that he later became a hero of the “Lost Cause” was an after-war fabrication, a propaganda success that Fox News likely views with envy.

But none of that really matters, because it’s not about Jefferson Davis, it’s about butt-hurt Klansmen and neo-Nazis upset that their participation trophies for losing a war are being taken away from them. Oh wah! Hey, dudes, if you want a trophy, win next time! (Cue massive eye-roll!).

It’s that day again, that day that white people who have no problem with waving Irish flags and drinking green beer on St. Patrick’s Day suddenly start throwing a conniption fit about people waving Mexican flags and drinking Coronas…

Just rather overheated — it’s been above 90F here for two days in a row. Even had to plug in the portable air conditioner in my bedroom yesterday to cool it down enough to sleep.

So anywho: America’s largest oil refinery is now 100% owned by Saudi Arabia. MAGA!

Spicey runs away from a press briefing. ¿Apparently scared that the reporters would ask him hard questions about what he’s butt-tweeting on Twitter?

As I keep pointing out, Hillary Clinton didn’t ignore the working class. She had detailed policy proposals to help them. But those policy proposals would have helped the poors and the blahs too, so. Can’t have that, can we? Our working-class white people, if they were underneath a bridge cooking a pigeon on a stick over a hobo stove, would gladly give up their pigeon if it meant that the black person the next bridge over didn’t even have a hobo stove.

This Nazi vs anti-Nazi bullshit is getting ridiculous. How do so many Nazis have so much time to go to strange towns where nobody knows them and hold rallies? Sheesh.

Finally, all this needs is some Truck Nutz and it’s the perfect Trump supporter truck:

Hint: If you have to loudly proclaim that you’re an alpha male… you ain’t one. Just sayin’.
