Christmas comes in 48 hours, Hanukkah starts tomorrow and were less than 30 days from having the classy Obama administration replaced by the nekulturny Trump one.
I need to vent, so let;s get to this week’s Shut Up Fool Awards to determine what fools deserve to have lumps of coal in their Christmas stockings .
Honorable mention number one is Donald Trump. Just pick an outrage.
Honorable mention number two is Kellyanne Conway for being the lying you know what she’s always been in this campaign, and has no parlayed that into a White House job. Ugh.
Honorable mention number three is the Bernie Bros for peddling that tired ‘Bernie Would Have Won’ lie and being as facts averse as their Tea Klux Klan counterparts
Honorable mention number four is everyone who said nothing as a man was hauled off a Delta flight for speaking Arabic to his mother.
Honorable mention number five is the management of the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes, who is forcing them to perform against their will at the upcoming inauguration of a man who is a sexist pig and thinks ‘grabbing women by the p***y is appropriate behavior.
Honorable mention number six is Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, for pushing SB 6, the Transgender Oppression Act.
Honorable mention number seven is everyone who said nothing as a woman made racist comments aimed at two Latinx women at Jefferson Mall in Louisville.
Honorable mention number eight is Carl Paladino, who lets some racist and transmisogynist comments aimed at the President and First Lady fly and gets justifiably called out for it by Gov Cuomo and a long list of New York peeps.
This week’s shut up fool loser is a joint ward for the North Carolina GOP, Gov-elect Roy Cooper and the Charlotte City Council.
The Charlotte City Council gets called out for allowing themselves to be hoodwinked and bamboozled into throwing the human rights of trans citizens of Charlotte under the bus and repealing their non discrimination ordinances in a surprise meeting earlier this week as part of a ‘deal’ in which the NOGOP controlled legislature would repeal the unjust HB2 once they killed their NDO.
They were stupid enough to trust a NCGOP that suppresses voters, brags about it, dragged out the governor’s election for over a month, and has no problem lying through their teeth.
And y’all trusted them to keep their word on repealing HB2? Even Stevie Wonder could see that this was a trap.
Bah humbug and shut up fools
