Ned, are you trying to say you're a furry? Or do you prefer the term "plushophile"?

Crazy Alec attacks Ms. Maddow in a highly entertaining delusional rant:

"...also think she’s a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air."

This one gets a bit complicated when viewed through the left's hierarchy of oppression: feminist Minneapolis mayor and lesbian fire chief don the oppressive hijab for, um, well, not sure why...

But, but, but, but, the left tells us that voter fraud is a right-wing myth....

Vote probe aimed at 419 Cedar Avenue S. in Minneapolis

The Hennepin County attorney’s office is investigating whether a private mailbox center in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood has been improperly used as an address for more than 140 voters.

State records show that 419 Cedar Avenue S. has been used by some of the voters as far back as 2008.

No one lives at the address, which is a Somali-dominated commercial building housing several small businesses and a popular mail center. Several dozen apartments upstairs use a different building number. Records also show that more than 90 of the registrants at that address have voted in previous elections, although it’s unclear how many voted while registered at 419 Cedar.

Hey Ho Trader Joe's Gotta Go!

Mau-mauing Trader Joe's

"Grocer Trader Joe's has pulled out of a planned expansion to a poor area in Portland, Ore., after a community organizing group objected. The organizers can now take a bow for the neighborhood's loss.

Hectoring the private chain with racially tinged language, wealthy poverty-racketeers from a foundation-funded group called the Portland African American Leadership Forum claimed that a $2.4 million store on a vacant lot in a run-down part of northeast Portland would gentrify the area, driving up retail prices and driving out the local black community.

"This is a people's movement for African Americans and other communities for self-determination," declared PAALF's Avel Gordly, the Oregonian reported."

Meanwhile, back in the 'hood...

"This is not what the neighborhood people want," resident Kymberly Jeka told the Oregonian. Added another disgusted resident, Tran Nghi: "They (the community organizers) don't (even) live here anymore. They don't come to neighborhood cleanups."

The Mountain comes to Mohammed

Let’s call the whole thing off

"Minnesota Democrats attended their local precinct caucuses last night. At the Brian Coyle Center in Minneapolis a fight broke out among Democrats in search of peace and love. Backers of newly elected school board member Mohammud Noor apparently sought to unseat 21-term incumbent state Rep. Phyllis Kahn. Noor also serves as the interim executive director of the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, “helping to connect new immigrants with social welfare programs, housing, health care and education services.”

According to the Pioneer Press, arguments arose when the Somali Democratic caucus began selecting delegates for committees representing the Cedar-Riverside area that is home to many Somalis. The caucus convened at 7:00 p.m. Police called the whole thing off at 7:45."

This is the kind of thing that reinforces my belief that the increasing popularity of this populist culture war nonsense over the last few decades is just a new place for America's love of bigotry to take hold. It's not socially acceptable to talk shit about people based on the old bigot classifications like race or religion or sexual orientation so we've created new arbitrary, superficial distinctions to hate eachother over, and they make even less sense the old ones. "I'm a this, you're a that, and I hate you, so let's argue about things that neither of us actually understands or cares about."

How else could this kind of post be explained? It's not funny. It's not even novel or weird. A grocery store was going to open in a neighborhood that probably needs a grocery store, but it wasn't an appropriate grocery store for that particualr situation. Hilarious. People who claim to care about making the world better place had a fist fight over some stupid politics bullshit. Oh the knee-slapping irony.

This is the kind of humor that I see on white power websites. The "joke" is that a black person or a jewish person or a homosexual would act inconsistently with the identity of the entire group, like that's some kind of indictment against an entire race or religion or orientation.

It's weird shit. And it's not at all limited to people who identify as conservatives, it's intrinsic to the culture war and populism in general, and it's very prevelant here among people who call themselves liberals. And it's toxic. You should stop that. All of you. But you won't.

I'm extremely confused too.

But I'm drunk so I'm going to ask something I've wondered for a while. Ned, are you Newby's old roomate? I forget your name but there have been a few things that made me suspect you're somebody I know from back in the day.
