I have a confession to make. The world really bums me out. Like, in a “I may need to up my meds in order to deal with this shit” kinda way. Maybe I’m too sensitive. Maybe I watch too much news. I don’t know. But it seems that I can’t get through a single day without hearing about something that freaks me out, pisses me off, or just plain makes me sad.
And this week has been a doozy.
First it was this headline: Racist False Trayvon Martin Facebook Picture Being Circulated.
That’s right. Somebody created a Facebook page pretending to be Trayvon Martin with a picture of a saggy pantsed boy throwing a gang sign. And for extra shits and giggles the conservative media is claiming that THAT is who Trayvon really was: a gang banging thug, and that the liberal media is trying to hide that fact by only showing an old picture of him when he was a sweet little boy. Nevermind that the picture was not Trayvon. Those scumbags over at Breitbart who first released the picture even admitted it wasn’t Trayvon.
Look, I don’t care how you feel about gun laws. I don’t care how you feel about gangs. I don’t care how you feel about the media. Hell, I don’t even care how you feel about black people. The fact of the matter is that an unarmed child was shot and killed by a grown man and the police weren’t concerned with finding out what happened. Move along. Nothing to see here folks.
And then the FOX “News” viewers weighed in on the whole thing. (ugh) “Good shot Zimmy.” “Just another nigger. No loss.” “How long will it take to get all those little black curley nappies out of the white house…”
Classy, huh? And they’ll swear up and down that they’re not racist. After all, it’s not like they’ve done this sort of thing before. *like this* It’s not like they have a history of this sort of thing. *like this* It’s not like FOX editors have ever had to pull the plug on their own website because their readers ruined it with their back woods hillbilly mentality. *like this* Hello, 1929 called. It wants its racists back.
I know that not all conservatives are racist, as I happen to know many very nice ones. And I know not all FOX viewers are racist, but there’s definitely something hinky in the water over at FOXLand. If it looks like a duck, and wears a white hood like duck, and burns crosses like a duck…well, you get what I’m saying.
These people suck. I’ve got no better way to say it. I got no jokes. They’re just assholes poisoning the world with their hatred. They just plain suck. Even The Simpsons know it.
Prozac, take me away.
