  1. The testimony of Driftglass nails the truth behind the Great American Tragedy.

    First, the only thing you Republicans truly excel at is lying. Lying about your party’s past. Lying about its present. Lying about its future. Lying about math and science and God and history. And most of all, constantly, pathologically lying about Liberals.

    Unhinged hatred of the Imaginary Left is now such a fundamental element of the GOP psyche, that now it just rooooolls off the tongues of the Pig People without them even noticing.

    … millions of brand new “independents” who all believed, with a wild and fanatical fervor, that Barack Obummer was a Kenyan Usurper who was going to kill their sainted white grannies with Muslim Brotherhoods and New Black Panthers and Saul Alinskys and Death Panels.

    And they got away with it…

    Donald Trump is not destroying your conservative movement. He is just throwing a very inconvenient, million-candle-power spotlight on the rotting, squirmy, midden pile of racists, con men, imbeciles and demagogues that your conservative movement has always been.


    They have become a neo-fascist cult that listens only to their authoritarian leaders; their leaders who demonize unions, journalists, scientists, educators, and liberals who dare serve the truth and call out their hate and lies. The far Right’s view of the “Imaginary Left” is formed by these fascists, from “loonie libtards” to “Lügenpresse,” (lying press) a Nazi slur shouted at a Trump rally.

    Now they openly cheer physical assault on reporters. “Heil, Trump! Death to the Lügenpresse!”

    This is the rabid ideology that has taken over our country. We must never let them forget they are a minority.

    This is the Great American Tragedy. Thanks to “good conservatives” and the party of “value$”.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
