GRAVEST THREAT

No, not Congress or Isis or Ebola or global warming—but drunken women.

This comment appeared, and was quickly deleted, on the Forbes website. You know, that bastion of banker-boy privilege and free-market entitlement.

The author of this idiotic statement was one Bill Frezza, president of the Beta Foundation, the house corporation for the Chi Phi fraternity at MIT. He came up with the classy title: “Drunk Female Guests Are the Gravest Threat to Fraternities.”

“In our age of sexual equality, why drunk female students are almost never characterized as irresponsible jerks is a question I leave to the feminists,” wrote Billy Boy. “But it is precisely those irresponsible women that the brothers must be trained to identify and protect against, because all it takes is one to bring an entire fraternity system down.”

That’s right. In Billy Boy’s feverish brain, drunken women are going to falsely accuse frat boys of rape. These boys, of course, are all innocent victims of the women doubtless too drunk to unhook their bras, much less unzip the jeans of their hapless victims. Billy Boy then added that “drunken hookups or anger over a failed relationship” are what lead to false accusations of rape.

I can’t even go into the depths of the mindset capable of blaming the victim who is, in Billy Boy’s scenario, drunk as a skunk yet a harridan out to ruin frat boys’ lives because she felt guilty about guzzling the Bud. Has it dawned on him that some of these women might not actually be drunk—they might just be victims of sexual assault by drunken men?

Don’t any of these guys go to college to learn anything? Aside from how to prey on vulnerable women? Guess not.

TIME TO REFLECT

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is no stranger to this blog, not just because he’s a thug and a hypocrite, but because he epitomizes political decrepitude. He isn’t lurching toward it–he’s already there.

So when he made a panicky, fear-based decision to place a fearless humanitarian nurse, Kaci Hickox, in isolation after she returned from treating Ebola patients in Africa–even though she had NO symptoms–and there was a national outcry, did he apologize? What do you think?

“When she has time to reflect, she’ll understand,” said this paragon on patronizing.

I think she’ll understand she should sue the pants off Christie.

This fear-mongering has got to stop!

NOTE: I can’t get the photos to load. Did I mention how insane I am going from my stupid computer problems? I need my son to show me what to do!

 

 

 

 

EBOLA OF THE BRAIN

Now that Ebola is in Texas, it’s time to look at a different kind of virus. You know, the kind that replicates in the brains of certain Republicans, pushing aside all the sentient, thinking nerve cells and replacing them with offense-spewing mush.

Case in point: Newly inaugurated Texas State Senator Charles Perry. Right after the horrible moment when this moron was sworn in, he had this to say:  “There were 10,000 people that were paraded into a medical office under the guise of a physical. As they stood with their back against the wall, they were executed with a bullet through the throat. Before they left, 10,000 people met their fate that way,” he blathered, making reference the murder of innocent Jews during the Holocaust. “Is it not the same than when our government continues to perpetuate laws that lead citizens away from God? The only difference is that the fraud of the Germans was more immediate and whereas the fraud of today’s government will not be exposed until the final days and will have eternal-lasting effects.”

In Charles’ addled state, he forgot the Golden Rule of politics. Never bring up the Holocaust in comparison to any of your own lame ideas.

And the Golden Rule of our Constitution aka the separation of church and state.

“Where is that giant of a nation that was founded on the eternal and never-changing values of a loving God and the desire to share that?” he went on. “I don’t recognize it on so many levels today.”

Maybe because you’re looking for it in Tricky Ricky’s office, pal.

Wrong place to look.

 

PLAYTIME WITH MICHELE

Michele Bachmann has crossed so many lines that you have to wonder how many more she will cross before she implodes completely….and yet, here she is, setting the bar even lower for an elected official of the United States of America.

Bad enough when she recently claimed that the gay community wants to “abolish age of consent laws, which means we will do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.”

But she was truly epic in heinousness when she said, “People from Yemen, Iran, Iraq and other terrorist nations are making their way up through America’s southern border because they see that it’s a green light, they can easily get in,” Bachmann warned. “Not only people with potentially terrorist activities, but also very dangerous weapons are going to cross our border in addition to very dangerous drugs, and also life-threatening diseases, potentially including Ebola and other diseases like that.”

“What he is doing by opening up this southern border, frankly, he is establishing a permanent political class that will vote for a big government mentality that will continually offer welfare decency programs,” she went on, speaking of our president. In her warped cranium, Obama is “willing to allow a pandemic of disease to come into our country.”

And here’s the kicker: “If you have a hospital and they are going to get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody, and a ward of the state can’t say ‘no’––a little kid can’t say ‘no’ if they’re a ward of the state––so here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can’t even say ‘no.’ It’s sick.”

Got that? Not only are children menacing Michele’s world, but they’re going to be used in medical experiments by some secret cabal of doctors hell-bent on turning them gay.

And she is seriously considering running for president again.

Going to go bang my head against the wall now.

 

EBOLA TRUMPED

Dr. Kent Brantly is American doctor who risked his life to treat patients with the Ebola virus in Liberia. He is such a mensch that when offered an experimental serum for treatment, he told doctors to give it to his colleague, Nancy Writebol, instead. His doctors then decided he was still strong enough to fly back to Emory University Hospital for treatment, and all proper precautions were taken in this special unit, built with advice from the CDC. It’s about as protected an environment as possible for those with contagious diseases.

But none of that was enough for the comb-king, Donald Trump.

In a stunning display of smug selfishness, Donald sent a series of tweets, “Stop the EBOLA patients from entering the U.S. Treat them, at the highest level, over there. THE UNITED STATES HAS ENOUGH PROBLEMS! The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away [sic] places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences! The U.S. must immediately stop all flights from EBOLA infected countries or the plague will start and spread inside our “borders.” Act fast!

What a moron. First of all, the amount of patients with Ebola returned to the US so far stands at one. Furthermore, Ebola is not an airborne virus. It is spread only by close contact with bodily fluids or blood. You can’t catch it like you can the flu. The people at most risk are those tending to the sick.

I hope that our understandable fear of the unfamiliar does not trump our compassion when ill Americans return to the U.S. for care,” said Dr. Tom Frieden.

Putting compassion and Donald Trump in the same sentence is an exercise in futility.
