this is the real first page of a real book by a real Fox News hostduck dynasty guy in a miley cyrus worldObama’s outchea in these streets taking away people’s bibles and guns and sweet tea. You can take our rainbows, but not my motherfuckin’ sweet tea!
There needs to be a word for “nostalgia for a time that never existed; a made-up ‘time long past’ that as you got older and progressively more angry and less sane, you used to cover for your feelings of increasing irrelevance sparked by the dawning reality of your own fleeting mortality.”
I bet the Germans have a word for that.
This guy is afraid Obama is going to take away his guns, Bible and sweet tea? A single man? A singular black man? What a scared little boy.

I’m not terribly sympathetic to the sort of tax cheat who offers grand explanations for why he shouldn’t have to pay taxes like everybody else. If you’re going to be a dick about paying taxes, own it like an honest crook. Or deny it like a rationally self-interested crook.
But this is even sillier. It’s one thing to want to be left alone. It’s another level of dickery to insist that you have a right to exploit public resources without following any rules.
…and yet he still lost to them in a court case. I’m not sure what’s funnier, that he thinks something this asinine makes him look better, or that he didn’t recognize that most of his “followers” came to him via an interstate highway and communicated with the outside world via the internet - both of which wouldn’t exist without this nonexistent entity that he’s fighting.
"YOU’RE NOT MY REAL MOM AND DAD IM A PRINCESS AND ONE DAY MY REAL ROYAL PARENTS WILL TAKE ME AWAY" - What Clive Bundy sounds like in my head.
Present day conservatism — be it in the form of Republicans, Libertarians or the Tea Party — operates on three levels: White grievance, fear-mongering, and irrational hatred of “the other”
This flag represents the 1860s “Heaven-ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race” and 1950s segregation.
The display of the Confederate flag is a highly controversial topic; it was largely absent during the American Civil War. Rather, the Confederate flag was reintroduced in 1956, just two years after the Supreme Court decision Brown v Board of Education. It was considered by many to be a protest against school desegregation. It was raised at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) during protests against integration of schools.
Conservative consistent lack of logic.
From a minimum wage hike to his newly unveiled plan to grow job training options in America, Pres. Obama is fighting for fairness. Many on the right, however, are fighting against those same policies, even when voters are demanding them.
“ It’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot ”

Conservatives are cowards. Conservative hate women.
“ We’re actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers. ”
Former Arizona sheriff and gun-wielding, self-proclaimed “patriot,” Richard Mack, on his “strategy” to fight the U.S. government while defending deadbeat, Cliven Bundy: women should be the first ones shot in order to send the most effective message. (via odinsblog)
