Canada’s hipster PM released a fawning tribute to Communist Tyrant Fidel Castro on the occasion of his death, inspiring others to contemplate how Justin Trudeau might eulogize other notorious figures, both nonfictional and made-up.
I think if you click on the picture it gets big and you can read them.
Whether or not Trudeau saw any of this coming, he didn’t appear to notice that he was delivering a speech to the Francophonie delegates in Madagascar that emphasized justice for lesbian, gay and transgender people, while from the other side of his mouth he was praising the legacy of a caudillo who spent the first decade of his rule rounding up gay people for “re-education” in labour camps. Homosexuals were irredeemably bourgeois “maricones” and agents of imperialism, Castro once explained.
I shouldn’t have to explain this; I will probably have to explain this.
Below the jump, someone went out and got even more stupid than the gawdam #DiaperPin. It’s down there because leftists are incapable of expressing themselves without the F-word.
This was my fav:
These are some of the funny memes I’ve seen since the ending of the election. The one on top of the jump pretty much sums up my reaction to the election. Seen any funny post-election memes? Post a link in the comments. If they make me laugh, I’ll add them to the gallery.
I know it’s a satirical site, but the best satire is spot on.
Modern Feminism:My Feminist Boyfriend Isn’t Working Until The Wage Gap Is Fixed
Would it be fair for him to work the same amount of hours in a comparable job and make more money than me? Definitely not! Until the wage gap is closed in all fields, he will not be working. Which is…fine. And good! It is good.
A lot of people who aren’t as committed to fighting the patriarchy (like my parents) just don’t understand why my boyfriend can’t work while being an activist. Couldn’t he just volunteer at Planned Parenthood to support women? Sure, he could and he totally would (he said that once after we had sex) but he doesn’t want to take the glory away from women volunteering at Planned Parenthood. He’s so thoughtful!
I had failed society once again. Perhaps I had been too sloppy. Too careless. Perhaps it was from the times when I brought him into the men’s restroom instead of the unisex room. Perhaps it was when I would take more groceries than Gwen when we were carrying them inside. Perhaps I didn’t wear dresses and skirts in the house enough times. Either way, it was clear that I had created, not a gender-fluid feminist, but a son.
Both Gwen and I are ashamed, but working to accept our son’s choices. We hold out hope, as Sally Kohn does, that our child will at least be gay. Perhaps during his adolescent years he will discover Tumblr, and that community will get the message across better than we. Every parent has high hopes for xer children, even in the face of severe disappointment and failure.
A good progressive is not allowed to laugh at anything that might possibly be perceived as oppressing or hurting someone (Christians, heterosexuals, and Republicans exempted, of course). In fact, the progressive leftist derives moral superiority from not laughing at “offensive” humor. So much so that stand-up comedians are actively avoiding college campuses. Because the PC Police could not handle a joke like this.
I first noticed the Progressive Comedy Pause while sharing my hilarity at office staff meetings. The majority would laugh but the committed lefties would stare blankly, each eye like that spinning wheel your smartphone shows while an app is loading. (The PCP might be why progressives just hoot and clap at Bill Maher’s jokes; the laughter reflex is considered problematic.)
It’s harder to laugh when you’re scared and much of the left is terrified. They know that an inappropriate chuckle, the wrong tweet, or last year’s term for an aggrieved minority can lessen their standing with progressive peers, if not get them fired from a job. Lefties also have turned the negative of humorlessness into the positive of moral superiority. Sniffing “That’s not funny!” at an inoffensive Caitlyn Jenner joke signals that you are more evolved than the average cis-het-white-oppressor.
I’m gonna make fun of Caitlyn Jenner if I want to. I’m gonna make fun of Barack and Michelle Obama. I’ll make fun of Rachel Maddow. And I’ll laugh my ass off while the lefty sourpusses stew in their sanctimonious bitterness.
One of the advantages to being an anti-social conservatarian who doesn’t care about political correctness; it’s a lot more fun.
Hey look, there’s now a home-version of the Folsom Street Fair.
Although, you can also use it to learn how to satisfy Dan Savage on a first date.
I understand Barney Frank bought one to use as a napkin dispenser.
