Row Row Row Your Boat

Gently off a cliff,
Throw the women overboard,
Republicans want a tiff.

The Trump Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which for half a century put an end to most low-quality abortions in the United States. The Handmaid’s Tale gets ever closer to looking like a documentary, instead of a horror novel/movie about the decline of the American empire into a theocratic, dystopia. I feel bad for American women; most don’t deserve the terrible consequences Republicans/Christofascists want for them.

Maybe Democrat supporters will realize their party is too wimpy to do anything useful. It’s too corporate-owned to matter.

Top Story of June 10, 2022? Former President Trump Tried a Coup

There’s no question Trump’s insurrection attempt on January 6th, 2021, was a coup that failed.

Bad Driver or Hate Crime? RCMP says “impatient”

The RCMP put out a disgraceful press release following a vehicle attack on First Nation people rallying near a Residential School site.

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, Moe Problem

What the dickens is wrong with Saskatchewan’s prominent political Moe family? It was less than 3 months ago that his truck was impounded in British Columbia where his son drove it so badly. Decades before then, Scott Moe killed Joanne Balog with his truck by not stopping it at a stop sign. Moe says he regrets one day, that day. I guess he doesn’t regret the other 2 days he was driving drunk, even though he might consider them among his “lot of mistakes”.

“Moe calls situation around impounded truck a ‘personal matter'”

“Premier Scott Moe said this was a time he was called to support family and friends”

How does he support his family:

He pardons them from minor traffic violations that mimic his own violation that cost a life.

Ford Has Hamilton Police Arrest Peaceful Satirist Lawyer At His Campaign Rally

This is an example of police state behaviour, and Ford should be punished.

W Gaffes Again

The Republican Party didn’t become disgusting when Trump came to power, it’s been terrible for over 20 years. How can you tell? W Bush just confessed to knowing the Iraq War was wrong, during one of his infamous public speaking gaffes. Obama’s Democrats letting him skate away from responsibility for the deaths of over a million people has inspired Biden’s Democrats to do the same for Trump who has also caused the deaths of over a million Americans by mishandling the COVID-19 pandemic so badly. And the GOP is supported by Fox News which is using the xenophobic expression “illegal babies”.

Plague Update: Doug Ford Broke Quarantine Law

Liberals might be happy to learn that OPC leader Doug Ford has been privately prosecuted with breaking federal quarantine law. Trial is pending.

They may be less excited to learn that Justin Trudeau should face similar prosecution for breaking the same law in the same manner. Another who should be charged gave this excuse for their breaking of the public safety measure: “He also noted that the press conference was not a public setting.” Imagine that a ‘private’ press conference.

One of the law profs behind the prosecution of Ford has made waved on Twitter previously.

I think it would be easy to find other Premiers like Moe who’ve broken the quarantine law too. Wasn’t Moe just gallivanting around Europe and the Middle East?

Plague Update: BoJo’s Contempt For Parliament

Two years ago the UK PM Boris Johnson almost died from COVID-19.

About 3 months after that, he broke his own government’s COVID-19 public safety measures and had a birthday party for which he was recently fined for attending. He became the first British PM to be found to have broken the law while in office. Rather than resigning in disgrace as Pie argues for in his satirical video here, BoJo stayed on and is expected to avoid sanction in Parliament because of his party’s corruption and support in a majority government situation.

BoJo is among the worst human beings, and the British have him as Prime Minister, of course.

Plague Update: #FluTruxKlan rally loses $9M from GoFundMe, and sued for $10M more

GoFundMe has frozen further donations from going to the convoy organizers. This was at the request of the Mayor of Ottawa, among other authorities becoming desperate to end the blockade peacefully.

GoFundMe announces freeze of the fascists’ funding:

GoFundMe supports peaceful protests and we believe that was the intention of the Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser when it was first created.

Suuuure GoFundMe, their intentions started out “peaceful”, while being organized by Pat King of Alberta. who said in previous videos a lot of homophobic and white supremacist things, and that they’d solve their problems with bullets. That’s why the good folks on both sides showed up with their racist flags in the first place too. King thinks the flags were flown as a false flag to sully his spotless reputation… as a bigoted violent racist.

Justin_Ling :

“James Bauder, the founder of Canada Unity and the architect of the “trucker” convoy to Ottawa, has said Trudeau “needs too[sic] be arrested and charged for treason, and for participating in committing crimes against humanity.”

The media has some people doing a good job of reporting on this, but this insurrection attempt is being downplayed in lots of places too as a protest against vaccine mandates, instead of a vast, far-right wing attack on the Prime Minister and legitimate government of Canada.

Meanwhile, Moe and his CPC buddies are rolling out the red carpet for the protesters who manage to limp home with their own funds.

CBC neglects to point out in their headline that Moe’s claim is disinformation. His threat to remove public health protections is real, however.
That’s why all the American flags, the Confederate flag, Trump flags, etc.

And then, some GoFundMe collateral damage happened. Caryma is a legitimate journalist, and GoFundMe just screwed her out of $7000. They’ll have yet one more thing to answer for to Parliament.

What is it about Conservative MPs and Senators that draws them to rallies with fascist flags being flown? Hmm, if only we could know what they’re thinking.
