Socialist College Students Plan Walkout On Inauguration Day For Some Reason

Back when I was a youngster in college, we found our own ways to have good wholesome fun. Stuff like swallowing goldfish and stuffing ourselves into phone booths and carving up hobos. But that was then. Young folks these days have come up with a new way to waste everybody's time: whining about Trump!

Is Anybody Really Surprised That Obama Just Freed A Domestic Terrorist?

After all, a domestic terrorist named Bill Ayers launched Obama's political career.

Notice that the two black men are at the edges of the frame. This is unacceptable, Variety. You're literally marginalizing them! #smdh

Genetic Male Bradley Manning Pulls Off The Klinger Gambit

8:53 AM 01/18/2017

Remember Corporal Klinger on M*A*S*H? He was the fellow who wore women's clothes so the Army would declare him a Section 8 and send him home. In later seasons of the show, he gave it up and stopped being hilarious. But now, Bradley Manning has pulled off that ploy in real life. Obama is the first president in U.S. history to commute the sentence of a "woman" for the crimes of a man.

White Man In White-Owned Restaurant To Mixed-Race Couple: ‘You Couldn’t Find No White Woman?’

With the looming inauguration of Donald Trump, there's no avoiding the fact that America in 2017 is a hotbed of racism unlike anyplace else on the planet. We haven't seen such bigotry since the days of Emmett Till. And sadly, the following story just proves the point even further.

Ft. Lauderdale Shooter Says He Did It For ISIS

Hang onto your hats, everybody. I've heard some crazy stuff in my time, but a guy killing a bunch of people and then claiming he did it in the name of Islam? That doesn't sound right to me!

Lena Dunham & J.J. Abrams Make Animated Film Glorifying Planned Parenthood

11:22 AM 01/17/2017

Are you an abortion enthusiast, but you're tired of explaining to a bunch of dumb hillbillies why it's so great to kill a child before it can inconvenience you? Lena Dunham and J.J. Abrams know your pain, and they've created a short film to explain why all those anti-choice baby-huggers are wrong and Planned Parenthood is great. The film is called 100 Years, but with J.J. on board, I'm giving it a new title: The Forceps Awaken.

Lefty ‘News’ Site Misidentifies Journalist As Omar Mateen’s Wife

John Lewis Boycotted George W. Bush’s First Inauguration Too, And He Gave The Same Reason

6:53 PM 01/16/2017

If I'm supposed to care that Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) is boycotting Trump's inauguration, and if it's somehow a big deal that Trump hit back at him like everybody knew he would, then the following item seems relevant.

Alt-Right Leader Humiliated When Nazis Find Out His Wife Is Jewish

6:23 PM 01/16/2017

I don't think a politician should be held accountable for the actions of every single one of his followers, whether the politician is a Democrat, a Republican, or Trump. As Ronald Reagan once said, when some creep tried to pull that dirty trick on him: "They support me; I don't support them." So I don't blame the president-elect for the handful of alt-right cretins who worship him, or pretend to worship him because they think it's funny, or whatever they're doing.

You’ll Never Guess Which Ex-President Is Jetting Off To Palm Springs After Trump’s Inauguration

Feds Finally Arrest Omar Mateen’s Wife

12:34 PM 01/16/2017

The Pulse nightclub massacre, committed by Omar Mateen, happened 7 months ago. Mateen's wife disappeared soon after, and nobody seemed to know or care where she went. Why would they? There was no way to blame the NRA or the Republican Party.

I know Stephen Colbert has been busy trying to hold on to second place in the late-night ratings, but maybe he should pick up a newspaper now and then. He's already forgotten who the president is!

I've been a Joss Whedon fan ever since Sarah Michelle Gellar staked her first guest star. And for almost as long, I've been exasperated by Whedon's moronic political opinions. But what you're about to see is surprising, even for him.
