Portraits By Deplorables

Conservatives lie. That’s the honest truth. They’re not just incapable of discussing any issue without fabrications because they lack an ability to comprehend. They use lies because that’s their weapon of choice. They use lies because their base is dumb enough to fall for them.

Conservatives amplified fake news from Russian trolls 30 times more than liberals. They even complained when Twitter conducted a purge of Russian bots.

Look at their leader, who is the king of lies. Look at his spokesperson, who told so many lies yesterday it was hard to keep up. Try to find a Republican who realizes we’re paying for Trump’s stupid border wall, not Mexico.

When Republicans can’t counter an argument, they don’t just lie about the issue. They lie about the messenger and engage in campaigns to vilify their political opponents. They told us Obama was a Marxist Muslim born in Kenya planning to take everyone’s guns away right after he was finished invading Texas.

Enter the students who survived the school shooting in Parkland. This is a situation where victims of a mass shooting are speaking out in favor of gun control, and conservatives and NRA supporters are resorting to their usual tactics of assaulting the messengers. In this case, they’re attacking minors who hid in closets during a shooting and had to step over the bodies of their friends, classmates, and teachers to evacuate the building.

How do conservatives frame these kids? Ben Shapiro accuses them of being manipulated by Democrats. Actor James Woods compared survivor David Hogg to Nazis. Dinesh D’Souza celebrated the failure of a Florida gun control bill by taunting, “Adults 1, kids 0.” Leslie Gibson, a candidate for Maine’s House of Representatives said of survivor Emma Gonzalez, “There’s nothing about this skinhead lesbian that impresses me and there is nothing to say unless you’re frothing at the mouth moonbat.”

Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King noticed Gonzalez was wearing a jacket with a Cuban flag at the March For Our Lives rally, and shared a meme on Facebook page stating, “This is how you look when you claim Cuban heritage yet don’t speak Spanish and ignore the fact that your ancestors fled the island when the dictatorship turned Cuba into a prison camp, after removing all weapons from its citizens; hence their right to self defense.” Gonzalez’s parents did flee Cuba, and some conservatives are questioning her citizenship despite the fact she was born in the United States.

A doctored animation of Gonzalez tearing the US Constitution in two (taken from an actual video of her tearing a bulls-eye poster) went viral on social media after Gab, a so-called “free speech social network” that features the controversial Pepe the Frog as its account image, posted it on Twitter. Adam Baldwin, famous for being related to talented Baldwins, also tweeted the animation.

Conservative propagandists impersonating political cartoonists A.F. Branco and Ben Garrison both drew cartoons of Hogg as a puppet (conservative cartoonists always draw the same idea. Always. Now there’s a Borg collective). I seriously doubt these two hacks will get the irony of both of them repeating the same Republican talking point while accusing someone of being a puppet.

The criticism and attacks on the students started with conservatives accusing them of being paid actors, which must mean Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is giving Julliard a run for its money.

I understand that Republicans would be skeptical of the maturity and eloquence of these students as their current leader has a fourth-grade reading level, resorts to childish insults, and has displayed an ability to comprehend equivalent to that of a garden snail. But, to vilify them because you see their activism as a threat to your fetish is deplorable. And, yes. When half the guns in this nation are owned by three percent of the population and the average gun owner owns between six and eight guns, it’s not for protection or sportsmanship. It’s a fetish.

They say you shouldn’t argue with children. I try to extend that to arguing with Republicans on social media, and I often fail to be the bigger person as I feel a need to debunk false information (and troll conservative cartoonists). But Republicans aren’t even engaging or challenging these kids in an honest debate or disagreement.

What Republicans are doing is showing us, once again, who they are. When someone shows you who they are, believe them.

I believe Republicans are nothing but a bunch of knuckle-dragging, racist, sexists, Nazi-pedophile supporting, lying shit weasels.

Enough


cjones03182018

Black Lives Matter is a bunch of thugs advocating killing cops.

Antifa is a terrorist organization equivalent to Nazis and white supremacists.

The Women’s March on Washington is a bunch of women searching for a cause while wearing vaginas on their heads, which needs to be over in time to cook dinner.

The #MeToo movement is fine just so long as they only accuse liberals and Democratic men of sexual harassment, assault, and rape, and leave Republicans out of it.

NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police violence, discrimination, and a disparate justice system is a bunch of sons of bitches disrespecting our flag and troops, and they should be fired for not knowing their place.

High school students protesting school shootings are actually paid actors organized by liberal activists.

We should only protest abortion.

Can someone get me a copy of the Republican handbook, so I can find the clause that requires them to be assholes? It’s probably in the section written by the NRA.

The Republican response to criticism they can’t counter is to discredit it. When you shout about injustice, they tell you to be quiet. When you quietly protest, they tell you to pick a better time. When you want to talk about gun violence, they say it’s too soon. When students say they don’t want to be afraid to go to school, Republicans say they’re too young to have an opinion.

Republicans are not good with movements. They picked a name for their last big one without the foresight to see they were inviting the “tea bag” label. When they criticize the pussy hats as vaginas worn on heads, it makes you realize they’ve never seen a vagina, which they probably took care of after Googling Donald Trump’s latest girlfriend.

When children are targets of gun violence, they have a right to express an opinion on it. They have the right to try to save their lives. We have the responsibility to save them. It’s negligent on our part to try to shut them up. It’s criminal not to do anything about the dangers they face. It’s reprehensible to continue taking money from the NRA while you watch them die. This is why they’re marching and saying “enough.”

No one is ever too young to be informed. There are examples every day of conservatives who need a basic civics lesson. From sharing fake news on social media, to being gullible enough to become a Russian troll, to becoming a congressman who doesn’t understand how a FISA memo works, to being the President of the United States wrongly telling the Prime Minister of Canada we have a trade deficit, Republicans are too old to be so misinformed.

People who can’t name the three branches of government, who don’t understand the Second Amendment doesn’t give you a right to fire as many bullets within a minute as possible, and couldn’t find South Dakota on a map if you spot them North Dakota, shouldn’t be telling anyone to shut up.

This Saturday, students from across the nation will converge on the nation’s capital. It will most likely outnumber the attendance for Trump’s inauguration. They’ll be telling us adults they’ve had enough. We need to listen and do something about it. This is a movement where the children are educating the adults.

Enough is enough.

Here’s the video.
