Late Night Horrorshow Open Thread: There’s A ‘Trump & His Wall’ Metaphor Here Somewhere…

And that’s only the second weirdest twitter meme of the evening.

Warning: Do not go below the fold within three hours of eating…

Not gonna link, because eeeeew, but it’s not (intended as) a joke. Amber A’Lee Frost, in the Baffler, demands that All True Progressives must ‘board the Bernie train”, complete with the pull-quote “If he dies mid-run, we’ll stuff him full of sawdust, shove a hand up his ass, and operate him like a goddamn muppet.”

IMO, if Wilmer were an honest grifter instead of a self-obsessed cult leader, this is where he’d seriously consider pulling back on the ‘exploratory’ tour for a while, because this is rapidly approaching Squeaky Fromme territory…

    I’m not sure but think that Squeaky is a better person than BS.
    At least she’s paid for her bullshit.

    Is it impolite to start calling them the Branch Bernidians yet? I’d hate to ruffle any feathers.

    As I’ve pointed out before, barbecue racoon is pretty good. Having wild game prepared at McDonald’s is fairly common in the south. I am surprised it’s spread to California.

    We live in a beach area where thousands of tourists come every summer. Without fail, Olive Garden is rated as the best Italian restaurant every year by folks from Michigan and Tennessee, even though there are dozens of authentic Italian places owned by people from NY and NJ. Go figure.

    I read that whole thing before realizing it wasn’t parody. I don’t give a shit how precious Bernie is, in 2020 he’ll be 79 goddamn years old. We’ve a fuckup in his 70s occupying the Oval Office now, don’t care for another one.

    His dead-enders are definitely a cult. What’s especially disgusting is that the sexual harrassment allegations against his campaign hasn’t seemed to dissuade a whole lot of them apparently or Sanders himself.

    @HumboldtBlue: Apparently the elderly man has mental health issues. It is actually a sad story. It is unclear if he realized the raccoon was dead. It is also unclear if he realized the raccoon was a raccoon and not a dog or a cat or something else.

    @HumboldtBlue: Have you seen the “Murder Mountain” documentary series on Netflix? Focus is on Humbolt County and the huge weed industry that has existed for many years. Just finished it. Lots of missing people cases over the years.

    Does this have something to do with neoBern Tulsi Gabbard, of whose existence I was blissfully ignorant before today?

    Adam L Silverman says:

    @eemom: Keep an eye on the funding for Gabard’s campaign. And I’ll put money on her jumping ship quickly and running as an independent to function as a spoiler. I fully expect Sanders will be forced into that by his supporters as well once it becomes clear very quickly that he’s not going to be the nominee.

    From what I’m seeing second-hand, looks like a bunch of the Cosplay Socialists are very excited by the idea of a Sanders/Gabbard ticket, or a Gabbard/Sanders ticket, because Pwn Da Neolibs NOW!!! (She did quit the DNC to endorse Sanders in 2016.)

    Of course the idea of Bizarro Trump ‘settling’ for underling to a mere woman, and a young one at that, is risible on its face. But the scuffle between the two should be entertaining, at least.

    Adam L Silverman says:

    @wasabi gasp: I’m not mad. I’m very, very concerned of the Russians ability to once again exploit one or more candidates running as an independent, like Stein did in 2016, to produce the same result as in 2016: the President loses the popular vote, but manages a narrow victory in the electoral college. Given Gabbard’s history and who she’s been connected with politically over her career, I have concerns about her candidacy.

    @Anne Laurie: I expect the knife fight between her and Nina Turner will be ugly. I fully expect that at some point Turner is going to shiv Bernie in pursuit of her own objectives.

    @Carl LaFong: I’ve called them Bernistas for a while.

    @🇺🇸🌎 Goku (aka Amerikan Baka)  🗳🌷: No, because Bernie is flawless, but those sluts are lying. The only thing to understand here is that this is a cult.

    @Adam L Silverman: Why not? She did that to HRC & the Dems. Worse yet, she did it without subtlety & success.

    @Adam L Silverman:

    At this point with Stein, I’m kind of assuming she ran to Michigan with her “recount” demand in 2016 to help MI Republicans cover up that Hillary votes were switched to Stein votes.

    Also, too:

    If he dies mid-run, we’ll stuff him full of sawdust, shove a hand up his ass, and operate him like a goddamn muppet.

    I just want to point this out for what it is. It’s not a cult member insisting that their Dear Leader is the best nominee. This is someone so unable to admit that they were wrong about anything, ever, that they would prefer to threaten to prop up a corpse than back down from the position they staked out. At this point, the Bernistas would prefer to destroy the entire country than have to admit that they were wrong and Hillary’s supporters were right.

    Read her other stuff: Amber is a comedian. Chapo are comedians. I think they’re really funny at their best, but they can be ‘problematic’. I read Amber’s ‘The Church Of Labor’. It’s glorifying and venerating coal miners. I think it’s a bit.

    Leftists don’t trust Tulsi Gabbard because she is a cop. Socially she is a crazed rightwinger (antigay, anti-Islam, and so on). Let her line up with Bernie and see where that gets them. Bernie is hardly the only source for opposition to a system that’s become exemplified by Trump and endless abuses: I like that some of these folks are dead set against Warren, because that tells me Warren has traction and ‘needs to be stopped’, by the usual suspects.

    Not the Left: Russia. Still hard at work. ‘Bernistas’ are fake. Real Bernie supporters existed but got crowded out by Russian trolls, herded in unhelpful directions, and here we are: you can’t continue to push for President Bernie without also empowering those Russian trolls, so the energy must go elsewhere to be expressed. Definitely not Gabbard. She’ll probably fight it out with Bernie over who gets to be Prez and who gets to be Vice.

    No problem – after less than 8 months in the White House, Bernie would be a fuckup in his 80s!

    I’ve been lurking for years, occasionally commenting. I’ve always suspected the ‘bernie or bust’ crowd was mostly internet bots.
    I’m fairly well connected with the Democratic party / liberal groups in Austin and I’ve never met one.

    what are your experiences?

    @ChuckInAustin: I know two that are not interested this time because of his age (they are 68), a d one mid 40’s True Believer but she’s moved to India and doesn’t plan to come back anytime soon. Her cult like devotion was creepy to watch, as was his readily she gulped the Russian bot crap. I saw a couple at the state party convention but I don’t think there were many. At the first march I saw one kinda crazy looking young man with a Tulsi for POTUS sign, but nothing else.
