INFO GRAPHICS / SUGGESTED READING

INFO GRAPHICS! CLIP SAVE & SHARE!


For a more complete overview of Wilson's place in the constellation of Far Right activism, and also for more details about his grotesque crimes against a minor, check out this Daily Beast article, which pulls no punches and thus will likely leave you with a terrible taste in your mouth. You have been warned.  


SUGGESTED READING LIST


Okay, I spent a lot of time on the "Info Graphics" sections above and below this "Suggested Readings" section, so I'm going to make this short and sweet. I'm also happy to reveal that I have finished my weeks-long project of cleaning out old stories that I've been wanting to share with y'all since the first months of the year, but for some reason never got around to. I've got one long-ish piece about Jordan Peterson and his misunderstanding of postmodernism left to finish up, polish up and share here, but after that, it's gonna be all new material here at the DDD! 

Unfortunately, that's not so much the case for Kubrick U and The Mediavore, which are both seriously behind schedule, and due for a whirlwind sweep-thru in the coming weeks, themselves. I've also got a couple of job-jobs lined up, so we'll see what happens.  

Anyway, first up, here's a handy-dandy info-sheet containing everything you ever wanted/will need to know about Alabama's Tiny Terror: Jeff Sessions, compiled by those wonderful worker bees over at The Baffler, one of yer old pal Jerky's favorite journals of literary and socio-political goodness!

Next up, I know we're all sick to the point of vomiting about what's going down with Brett Kavanaugh, whose performance before the Senate Judiciary committee last week would have been completely disqualifying in a functional democratic republic. But if you've been avoiding that soul-draining debacle (with good reason), maybe you should ingest our old pal Vic Berger's latest video, entitled American Horror Story: A Very Scary Time for Men., just so you at least get the basic gist of how terrifyingly far from the beaten path America has wandered, like a developmentally delayed child chasing a butterfly into a Big Cat sanctuary. 

Here it is:

 
And now, why not round out your Kavanaugh knowledge by reading this Current Affairs article about "How We Know Kavanaugh is Lying", and follow it up with this New York Times editorial that explores one part of Kavanaugh's bizarre, hateful obsession with the Clintons, including helping to spread ridiculous and downright evil Vince Foster conspiracy theories. Turns out there are SOOO many good reasons to despise this sack of crap. I have a feeling he won't be a Supe for very long, regardless of today's vote.

Parting shot re: Kavanaugh: I can't be the only one who thought that, while he was being questioned by Democrats during his confirmation hearings, his constant, pained facial contortions made him look like he was perpetually trapped in the early stages of transforming into a werewolf... right?

This big Okie creepshow is pretty much a walking, talking archetype, the living embodiment of Shakespeare's warning about those "who doth protest too much"! Because isn't it almost always the case that the loudest, angriest homophobes among us end up being the most thirsty for the dick? And aren't those who pray loudest always revealed to be the biggest hypocrites by the time the third act rolls around? Anyway, if you really need to know more details about this revolting specimen, here's a good place to start.

    I used to keep a running list of Republicans caught with their hands in the underage nookie jar. Then the list starting getting really long. Then I realized that no one on the right actually cares because they have a deep seated psychological ability to deflect criticism. And facts. And good sense. And humanity. And...well, you get the picture. In essence, all I ever did was preach to the converted.

    In my opinion, when they set up the US education system as a way to educate people just up to the level of their parents and no more, primarily so they would have replacement meat for the assembly lines, it was rousing success. Also, if they actually taught critical thinking skills to American children from a young age, huge chunks of American political & religious bullshit wouldn't survive. And no one in charge of this asylum wants that, now do they?

    1. Right you are Erasmus. Tragically, yes, but still correct.
