Mumford & Sons Needs a New Banjo Player

 


This is the intersection of everything in our culture that is stupid. Here you have Winston Marshall, aka, some banjo playing twat in Mumford & Sons endorsing a book by serial fabulist and white nationalist supporter Andy Ngo.

You can't find anyone dumber than these two. You can't miss making your mark on the culture better than this. It's like the perfect combination of being blissfully ignorant and wantonly stupid in public.

There are lots of banjo players out there, when you think about it, and I never do.

Sometimes the People You Like Are Idiots

 


Ian Brown and Noel Gallagher have revealed themselves to be ignorant jackasses and that's the whole truth and nothing but the truth:

Noel Gallagher has said he refuses to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic, complaining that it is a violation of his liberty.

Speaking on the Matt Morgan podcast, the former Oasis guitarist said: “It’s not a law. There’s too many fucking liberties being taken away from us now … I choose not to wear one. If I get the virus it’s on me, it’s not on anyone else … it’s a piss-take. There’s no need for it … They’re pointless.”

Gallagher said he had resisted calls to wear a mask on a train and in shops. “I was going up to Manchester the other week and some guy’s going, ‘Can you put your mask on,’ on the train, ‘because the transport police will get on and fine you a thousand pounds. But you don’t have to put it on if you’re eating.’ So I was saying: Oh right, this killer virus that’s sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me, but see me having a sandwich and go, leave him, he’s having his lunch?

Oh, and there's also this gem:

Gallagher is not the only Mancunian indie star to have voiced doubt over the coronavirus outbreak. Last week, Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown tweeted: “No lockdown no tests no tracks no masks no vax,” later adding: “So im a Conspiracy Theorist HA! a term invented by the lame stream media to discredit those who can smell and see through the government/media lies and propaganda #researchanddestroy.”
You can safely ignore their advice as far as it relates to protecting your health and staying alive. Wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and get tested if you can. If you test positive, do what you can to avoid spreading the virus.

I mean, what a bunch of fucking idiots. We're still having this debate?

Mary Cheney and Stupid Rhetorical Questions






Welcome to the stupidest question of the year so far:

Mary Cheney wants to know why it isn't "socially acceptable" for a white person to "put on blackface and act out offensive stereotypes of African-Americans" if drags queens are allowed to imitate female stereotypes?


If a man can dress up as a woman to entertain an audience, then why can't a white person get on stage in blackface, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney wondered aloud Thursday in a private Facebook post obtained by CNN.


Let's see. 





Racism? Ever heard of it? 





You see, when someone dons blackface, they are reinforcing a racist stereotype designed to dehumanize and belittle an entire race of people through mocking their humanity. When someone dresses up in drag, they're celebrating something they wish to be, which is a woman, and that's rare in a male-centric society.





This has been a simple answer to a stupid fucking question.

Nemo Me Impune Lacessit


There really is a website called "Conservatives For Palin" and they really, really do have a banner with a misspelled word on it.

And I realize that this is absurd and could be entirely wrong, but the phrase stamped on the old Scottish coins was "Nemo Me Impune Lacessit," which is roughly translated as "no one cuts me with inpunity."

The Palin site spells the word as "lacesset." This is an obscure spelling on the Internet. It is vastly more common to spell it "lacessit."

What? I'm bored.

Hindrocket The Troofer!




John Hinderaker at PowerLine believes that there is something amiss, and that makes for blogging gold on the Internet! Yay!

As a Reid Troofer, Hind Rocket just had to speculate that Senator Harry Reid was possibly beaten like a cheap drum by some Las Vegas thugs or casino muscle. Would it be irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to! Right? Right.

No, of course we're not being told the truth about Harry Reid. He's a Democrat, and liberals are the real haters and this is all payback for George W. Bush and his run-in with a pretzel.

Another cherished moment of a life spent watching insanity flicker in front of you on a computer screen. Is it 2005 again? Jeebus.

Only 25 Kids?




Did you think Idiocracy was a documentary? I know, me too!

A Memphis man with at least 25 kids by 15 different mothers is at it again.


More women claim he’s fathered children, and he’s still not paying up.


We first told you about Terry Turnage two years ago.


They called him the worst deadbeat dad ever. As we’ve found out since then, he’s wanted in another state by more women.


“Everybody tells me, ‘What you doing talking to him? How you didn’t know he had all these kids?’ Uh duh, I’ve been in school. I wasn’t out like that,” 22-year-old Paula Stewart said.


Stewart says she now knows the father of her 2-year-old son is the father of many.


Turnage shows up in court in rags, but around Forrest City, he’s known as the flashy club owner that drives fancy cars and goes by the name TYB. Those who know Turnage say it stands for ‘Take your B—-!’


Miesha Davis said she found out about Turnage when she called the Forrest City child support office.


“When I called. She was like, ‘Who?’ I said Terry T. Turnage. She was like, ‘He’s famous,’” Davis said.

That's not the good kind of famous, by the way. That's small town baby daddy fame.

Why Are You There in the First Place?




This post and the one that follows are basically asking the same thing--why the hell would anyone who is an American go to North Korea on purpose? Or "blunder" into the country? If God sent you there, then you need to ask him to get you out of there.

Doesn't anyone listen to what the State Department says?

Honestly, why are we having this discussion at all? You don't go to North Korea. Period. End of Story.

Stay the Hell Out of North Korea






What is the United States supposed to do when people don't follow simple instructions?


Kenneth Bae, an American citizen detained in North Korea, said he feels like the U.S. government has abandoned him, according to a pro-North Korea newspaper.


Bae gave an interview to Choson Sinbo, a newspaper based in Japan, which has been given access to Bae in the past.


The newspaper published a picture of Bae wearing a blue prison garment in an interview that it said took place on July 30.


Bae said that he heard the U.S. government is doing everything it can to have him released and thanked the American and North Korean government for allowing him to speak to his family over the phone and medical treatment.





The Department of State strongly recommends against all travel by U.S. citizens to North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK). This replaces the Travel Warning for North Korea of November 19, 2013, to update information on the risk of arbitrary arrest and detention of U.S. citizens in North Korea.

Travel by U.S. citizens to North Korea is not routine, and U.S. citizen tourists have been subject to arbitrary arrest and long-term detention. North Korean authorities have arrested U.S. citizens who entered the DPRK legally on valid DPRK visas as well as U.S. citizens who accidentally crossed into DPRK territory. The Department of State has also received reports of DPRK authorities arbitrarily detaining U.S. citizens without charges and not allowing them to depart the country. In the past 18 months, North Korea detained several U.S. citizens who were part of organized tours. Do not assume that joining a group tour or use of a tour guide will prevent your arrest or detention by North Korean authorities. Efforts by private tour operators to prevent or resolve past detentions of U.S. citizens in the DPRK have not succeeded in gaining their release.


The Government of North Korea has detained, arrested, and imposed heavy fines on persons who violated DPRK laws, such as entering the country illegally or attempting to contact private DPRK citizens without government authorization. Travelers to North Korea must enter the DPRK with a valid passport and valid DPRK visa. Foreign visitors to North Korea may be arrested, detained, or expelled for activities that would not be considered criminal outside North Korea, including involvement in unsanctioned religious and/or political activities (whether those activities took place inside or outside North Korea), unauthorized travel, or unauthorized interaction with the local population.
North Korean security personnel may regard as espionage unauthorized or unescorted travel inside North Korea and unauthorized attempts to speak directly to North Korean citizens. North Korean authorities may fine or arrest travelers for exchanging currency with an unauthorized vendor, for taking unauthorized photographs, or for shopping at stores not designated for foreigners. It is a criminal act in North Korea to show disrespect to the country's former leaders, Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung, or to the current leader, Kim Jong Un.


If DPRK authorities permit you to keep your cell phone upon entry into the country, please keep in mind that you have no right to privacy in North Korea and should assume your communications are monitored. It is a criminal act to bring printed or electronic media criticizing the DPRK government into the country. If you bring electronic media, including USB drives, CD-ROMs, DVDs, or laptops, into the country, you must assume that North Korean authorities will review the information on those devices. Please be sure that the information contained on those devices does not violate the laws or regulations of the DPRK, as penalties for knowingly or unknowingly violating North Korea's laws are much harsher than U.S. penalties for similar offenses. Sentences for crimes can include years of detention in hard labor camps or death.


In
other words, don't go to North Korea. Period. End of story.

Haters Are Not Intelligent People




There are no words, just peals of laughter at the utterly ignorant fool who wrote this on a wall about children.

The glorious, patriotic message appeared on the side of a former Army Reserve warehouse in Westminster, Maryland that's been named as a potential site for housing undocumented children.

I mean, this was written about children. Whoever and whatever these people are, they were never Christians, ever.

One Third of the American People Are Always Crazy




Talk about a non-story.

Talk about a ridiculous subject for a story relating to American politics.

Talk about a nothingburger.

I mean, seriously. Support for impeaching President Obama is (gasp!) at the one-third mark? Meaning, about 33.3% of Americans want the President to be removed from office? Seriously?

At any given time in American political life, one third of the public is absolutely batshit crazy with a consuming belief that whoever is President (doesn't matter--it really does not) is wrong on everything, evil, and has abused their power.

One third?

Give me a break. I don't know who Peter Moore is but he has the cushiest gig in blogging. He doesn't have to think at all and he doesn't even have to try anymore.

Stacey Campfield is Your Republican of the Year




Why would this idiot leave the post up? Holy crap.

Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for "train rides" for Jews in the 40s.

Yeah, it's exactly the same thing. Giving people access to health care so that they do not die broke and leave their families the bill is just like how millions of Jews were put to death.

What a moron.

The Republican Party is Run by Crazy People




How do you do things like this and not see a backlash from the voters? This is insane.

A Democratic bill designed to make numerous improvements to services for veterans failed in the Senate Thursday, a victim of the partisan gridlock and election-year acrimony that dominates the chamber.


On a largely party-line vote, 56 to 41, the measure didn’t the 60 votes it needed to clear a procedural hurdle.


Republicans inserted an amendment into the bill that had nothing to do with Veteran's benefits. They wanted to tack on legislation related to sanctions against Iran. And if that sounds like foaming-at-the-mouth crazy, that's because it is. When it comes to legislation designed to alleviate the suffering of Americans, the Republican Party will stop at nothing to derail legislation and run a knife into the ribs of the American people.

What's in the bill?

The $21 billion bill, which was written primarily by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, who chairs the veterans committee, would improve veterans’ access to health care services, and expand educational and job training programs for vets. It also aims to reduce the giant claims backlog the Department of Veterans Affairs currently faces. 


Sanders argued that “we still have a very long way to go” to meet the needs of older veterans as well as the thousands of service members recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. “


“Please do not inject extraneous issues in here for totally political reasons. I think that’s unfair to American’s veterans,” Sanders said during a floor speech this week. “Let’s not kill this bill because of the same ol’, same ol’ partisan issues that we face.”



Just fucking crazy. That's all they are. Just fucking crazy.

Alec Baldwin Has No Idea What a Jackass He Really Is




Let me just put this out there--being a liberal does not mean Alec Baldwin gets a pass for being remarkably bigoted and ignorant. He actually wrote this:

I met with Nick and others from two LGBT organizations. We talked for a while about the torment of the LGBT life many of them have lived while growing up in traditional Hawaiian families. Macho fathers. Religious mothers. We talked a lot about words and their power, especially in the lives of young people.

One young man, an F-to-M tranny, said, “Are you here to get dry-cleaned, like Brett Ratner?” Meaning I could do some mea culpa, write them a six-figure check, go to a dinner, sob at the table, give a heartfelt speech, beg for forgiveness. I thought to myself: Beg for forgiveness for something I didn’t do?

I said, “No. I don’t want to get dry-cleaned. I don’t want to be decontaminated by you, Karen Silkwood–wise, scrubbed down. I want to learn about what is hurtful speech in your community. I want to participate in some programs about that. Or underwrite one. And then, like you, I just want to be left alone.” [emphasis, mine]


So, if you're trying to demonstrate how you're not bigoted, why would you insert the phrase "an F-to-M tranny" into your description of someone who works on behalf of gay rights? Why would you use the term "tranny" like that? Labels used like that are designed to belittle and demean people. It doesn't matter if the person was born a woman and now lives as a man--their dignity is more important than calling them a wink-wink tranny.





Alec Baldwin does not understand the culture and lives in the past. He doesn't understand the terms he applies to people as he looks down on everyone else in disgust for clearly identifying him as a bigot.





The sooner he makes good on his promise to leave public life the better. Let the assclown go.

Are You Dumber Than Andrea Peyser?




Have you heard? Al Gore is fat.

Andrea Peyser is convinced that because it has been cold, there is no global warming.

Forget about trying to explain how climate change has nothing to do with whether or not the weather is unpleasant right now--you just cannot get past the fact that some people are stupid on purpose. If the climate all over the globe has been thrown for a loop and if things have begun to fundamentally shift in varying directions, then the data would seem to indicate the climate is changing. The permafrost in Alaska is melting and the glaciers in Europe are disappearing. This was the summer to be in Greenland. Oh, and the jet stream shifted, making the world's climate shift with it.

Why any of this is about Al Gore is beyond me. There really is no debate--it's well past time to start thinking about alternatives to turning the planet into a greenhouse where everything begins to shift and change in response to human activity.

Peyser is proof you can get a job in the media--at America's most ridiculous newspaper, The New York Post--and know nothing at all.

Always Good For a Laugh




Ann Althouse misses the point entirely when she makes her attack about our weak campaign finance laws and not the complete and utter disregard of the rule of law by half-assed conservative pundit and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza. It isn't about the law--it's about the fact that D'Souza is a serial hypocrite of the highest order who got caught because he simply didn't respect the very simple and basic rules that govern who can give money to a candidate and how much they can give. So, there's that. And, of course charging him with violating campaign finance laws is "political" because D'Souza operates entirely in a political world where everyone is accountable for their actions except himself. His respect for the rule of law is legendary--especially family law.

Saying that the law is "oppressive" is laughable. How can the law be oppressive in any way, shape or form for a conservative intellectual of D'Souza's background? Did he not go to college? Wasn't he supposed to be a smarty-pants? That's the kind of stupid Ann Althouse is famous for. And her braying pack of jackasses will eat it up until they all dissolve into their wine and confusion.

D'Souza will claim he is a martyr, that he is being silenced, and that President Obama spends all day, huddled with his advisers, trying to find a way to destroy him. It couldn't possibly be the case where D'Souza acted like an idiot and got caught doing something ridiculous. It couldn't be a case where he got caught doing something that a functioning adult with basic common sense could have gotten away with just by operating with the barest of noble intentions. Nope.

If you're stupid enough to get caught violating laws no one enforces anymore, you deserve to be indicted and blasted for it. The "weird details" of Althouse's imagination really don't go any further than getting caught giving a candidate more money than they were supposed to give and then reimbursing them with payments that can be easily traced and discovered:

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan said that Mr. D’Souza encouraged others to give $20,000 to a Senate candidate and reimbursed them for the donations. Election law prohibits such arrangements and caps donations at $5,000 per donor to any one candidate. 


The Senate candidate was not identified in the indictment. Mr. D’Souza donated to only one federal candidate in 2012, giving $5,000 to Wendy Long, a New York Republican who lost her challenge to Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, a Democrat.

If that's not breathtakingly stupid, what the hell is?

Celebrating Dumbassery




I'm sorry, but this happened because of sheer dumbassery:

In a search involving 200 people, rescuers finally located the family on Tuesday after they had gone missing two days earlier during a playful outing in the snow in mountainous northwest Nevada.

This playful outing involved going into a remote area and joyriding. With children, four of them, in a Jeep. Why were they doing this and why isn't anyone else a little more critical of their choices? Why does the article here gloss over why they were in the mountains and focus on the fact that they were found because of a great deal of hard work undertaken by a number of people who risked their own lives?

Grow the hell up. Respect the climate and the geography where you live. And try to remember that a Jeep does not give you a license to fly across valleys and jump mountains and live life like a Mountain Dew commercial.

It's good that everyone was found. I'm sure it was a traumatic event. But it was avoidable. Don't go joyriding on mountain roads during a deep freeze. Watch a weather forecast. Leave the kids out of your plans to go muddin'. And keep some better winter weather emergency supplies in your damned Jeep.

Pacman and Peso Will Do Anything For a Buck




This has to be the dumbest stunt anyone ever pulled in order to gain virtually no fame whatsoever. Who's going to watch these two idiots in a video shot in North Korea?

I mean, duh:

ENTRY / EXIT REQUIREMENTS FOR U.S. CITIZENS: Travel by U.S. citizens to North Korea is not routine, and U.S. citizens crossing into North Korea without proper documentation have been subject to arbitrary arrest and long-term detention (see Travel Warning ). You must have a valid passport and a valid DPRK visa to enter North Korea. The U.S. government does not issue letters to private U.S. citizens who wish to apply for DPRK visas. If you plan to enter and depart North Korea through China, you must obtain a multiple-entry visa for China, because a valid Chinese visa is required to enter China after leaving North Korea at the conclusion of your visit. Routine travel from South Korea to North Korea is prohibited. Travel across the demilitarized zone (DMZ) is allowed only infrequently for official and government-authorized cultural and economic exchanges or aid shipments. Commercial airlines do not operate regular flights between South and North Korea. 


If you arrive in North Korea without a valid passport and a valid DPRK visa, you may be denied entry, fined, detained, arrested, or imprisoned. North Korea has imposed heavy fines and long prison sentences with hard labor on persons who entered the country without the proper documentation. Even with the proper documentation, visitors may be subject to arbitrary arrest and imprisonment and may not receive appropriate legal protection against inhumane treatment. 


Internet access is limited to non-existent, and many hotels do not offer international telephone calls. If you use a cell phone in the DPRK, please keep in mind that mobile telephone networks are operated as a joint venture with the North Korean government. You have no right to privacy in North Korea and should assume your communications are monitored. If you bring electronic media, including USB drives, CD-ROMs, DVDs, or laptops, into North Korea, you must assume that North Korean authorities will review the information on those devices. Please be sure that the information contained on those devices does not violate North Korea’s laws or regulations. If you violate North Korea’s laws, knowingly or unknowingly, you can be harshly punished, even for offenses that would not be illegal in the United States.

How delusional are these two? They are backed by some serious idiocy:

“This trip will be a fantastic opportunity for Pacman and Peso to meet young, dynamic people and significantly broaden their horizons,” read the proposal, which was posted Aug. 30, “in addition to jump starting their musical careers.” The title was straightforward and surreal: “Pacman & Peso Make a Music Video in North Korea.”


This sentiment comes from, in part, a manager who should probably give up on his dreams and get a real job:


Ramsey Aburdene has a slight build, a post-college beard and an earnest way of communicating that makes him seem both younger and older than his age, which is 24. By day he works in commercial lending. But Ramsey grew up attending District public schools and always dreamed, after college at the University of Connecticut, of returning to his home and forming a small production studio for rap music.


North Korea? Really? Good luck, chumps.
