While it is quite true that Bush Jr is quite stupid, however it is quite evident that Bush Jr has some very deep-seated motivations.

In this case, Bush Jr had always wanted to do something to show his father (who was the President, an Ambassador, a Director of the CIA, a war hero, a successful businessman, a Ivy League graduate, and so on) that his namesake son is a person of considerable worth.

And by settling the Iraq issue once and for all, Bush Jr could show his chops to both his father and his electorate.

I suggest the following term for Honorable Marjorie Taylor Greene:

Treasonous Moron.

And by a happy coincidence, the very same term can be readily applied to her hero Donald J. Trump.

Maybe so and maybe not. It is still too early to tell for sure.

In any event, I just hope that the elections are done honestly in order to give the people the government that they deserve.

It's a sign of the times, surely, that G.W.Bush, whom I despise deeply and consider one of the worst presidents ever, a font of wrongness and corruption in nearly every way, seems like a breath of fresh air compared to some of his party's more recent representatives.

The have, if nothing else, succeeded in normalizing the awful. How we long for the days when we were only sucking the scum out of the barrel, before we got to the bottom.

While Dubya is a fool, he is not evil. He's a generally decent human being who made some very bad decisions but he's not a scumbag. On the other hand, you have Trump and his butt-kissing minions who are just plain evil.

I don't know where to put this, but apparently a crowd of somewhere around 75 QAnon people gathered at Dealey Plaza in Dallas today to await an appearance of JFK Jr.

https://twitter.com/stevanzetti/stat...41979362861057

I'm not making this up.

Sometimes, when I am at a restaurant, I look around and think, "All these other people here said, "Where do you want to go to eat?" and it was answered with this restaurant name. That's interesting."

But there are people who got up this morning and said, "Let's go over to Dealey Plaza because I heard that JFK Jr will be making an appearance." And they brought "Trump Kennedy 2024" flags with them.

Just a reminder, JFK Jr died in a plane accident in 1999.

There was a reply tweet that summed it up: Imagine being this divorced from reality.

That is weird even for the 'Q' nutjobs.

However, I guess that they are thinking about RFK, Jr. who is now a supporter of the Anti-Covid Vaccine movement.

No, they are thinking JFK Jr. They think that his death is actually a coverup for...something, I don't know what. They even have a guy who they insist is actually JFK Jr based on pictures. The guy naturally denies it, but that's what the real JFK Jr would say.

Yes, this is weird even for the nutjobs, but not as weird as you think.

As I posted in the CT subforum, some also brought "Trump Kennedy 2020" flags. I mean, there's still a chance, right?

ETA - The USA Politics and the conspiracy theories sub-forums can probably be merged at this point.

All the lunatics in one place! Why didn't someone round them up and commit them as a job lot?

pgwenthold 2nd November 2021 06:44 PM

Ok, since JFK Jr didn't show up in Dealey Plaza today, now the thinking is that he will come to the Rolling Stones concert in Dallas tonight. What ate the odds they think Keith Richard's is JFK Jr?

Again, I'm not making this up. They actually think JFK Jr is going to show up

bruto 2nd November 2021 08:55 PM

The disconnect I find odd is that these people seem to assume JFK Jr. would be on their side. Combining Kennedy worship with T**** worship goes beyond mere stupidity into the florid lunacy of cargo cults and lizard queens.

Why the present tense? It has already been happening for a fairly long time.

I think they think he's turned on the Democrats, which is why he had to fake his death and go into hiding. Having lived his life as the ultimate Democratic insider, he'd have seen all the demonic stuff they were up to, and is now poised to bring the whole house of cards down.

Why it's taken him 22 years (and counting) to do this is a mystery.

Oh gosh! I am beginning to think that these 'Q' people have been watching too many Scooby Doo cartoons.

Come to think of it, just a few weeks ago MTG made a weird Scooby Doo reference on the floor of the US House of Representatives.

I told you all, I'm not making this up.

This is the level of nuttery that is out there.

There was a non-trivial amount of people yesterday who absolutely said, "Let's go to Dealey Plaza because JFK Jr is going to show up there" and they thought he was going to support Donald Trump.

More antics with potentially deadly consequences. This time the targets were the thirteen House Republicans who voted for President Biden's infrastructure bill.
Quote:

Those defectors were savaged afterward by former President Donald Trump, while hard-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., called them “traitors” while tweeting their names and office telephone numbers, and one of the 13 says he received death threats. AP story linked via WWNY-TV, a CBS affiliate in upstate New York
MTG really went full press. In a Tweet she wrote:
Quote:

They “handed over their voting cards to Nancy Pelosi to pass Joe Biden’s Communist takeover of America” through the infrastructure package. USA Today
One of the congressman, a veteran lawmaker from Michigan, reacted angrily.
Quote:

“This madness has to stop,” said Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., an 18-term moderate, who noted the dozens of threatening calls he said his offices received following his yes vote. That included one obscenity-laced rant that aides provided in which the caller repeatedly called Upton a “traitor” and expressed hope that the lawmaker, his family and aides would die.
In Long Island NY, 64-year-old Kenneth Gasper was arrested by local police after calling local Republican congressman Andrew Garbarino's office, cursing staffers who took his call and saying he would kill Garbarino if he "saw him on the street."

She is literally inciting her followers to commit murder and hoping one of them is crazy enough to take her words to heart.

Yes, it is getting crazy, beyond crazy.
Quote:

Republican Rep. Paul Gosar posted a photoshopped anime video to his Twitter and Instagram accounts showing him appearing to kill Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attacking President Joe Biden...Gosar is portrayed as a cartoon anime-type hero and is seen attacking a giant with Ocasio-Cortez' face with a sword from behind. The giant can then be seen crumbling to the ground. Another scene shows Gosar flying through the air, swinging two swords at a character with President Biden's face. CNN link
California congressman Ted Lieu -- a Democrat and a colonel in the US Air Force Reserve -- said the anime video, created by Gosar's staff, showing Gosar killing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was sick. "In any workplace in America, if a coworker made an anime video killing another coworker, that person would be fired."

I am 100% convinced that Paul Gosar has serious mental issues.

Marjorie Jewish Space Laser Greene on the other hand, is a straight up ******* psychopath!
