Roger Stone threatens, er, “predicts” bloodshed if Trump is impeached: Today in Tweets

The most pointed version of this goofy meme, courtesy of @MazMHussain on Twitter

By David Futrelle

Longtime Trump pal and world-class weirdo (the bad kind) Roger Stone is definitely just predicting a civil war and political assassinations if Trump is impeached, I mean, goodness me, why would anyone think he was threatening or trying to incite violence?

In other news, Donald Trump retweets an anti-Semite, Scott Baio retweets a Sandy Hook Truther’s conspiracy theory about Heather Heyer’s mom, Trump moves beyond tweets with his transgender ban, and, oh yeah, we don’t really live in a democracy any more.

Also cats.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If you live on the Gulf Coast  in the path of Hurricane Harvey, GET OUT! Seriously. It’s going to be bad.

One, two, three, four
Everybody out the door
Walk until your feet are sore
But make sure you don’t break

Five, six, seven, eight
Take away those who crow hate
The nation’s never been quite great
For everyone’s sake

We’re running in a land where we’ve never had a handle
On the details and trimmings, or even the chassis
Where the mural-maker’s considered a vandal
You tell the throngs but their eyes are glassy
Is anybody gonna listen? Anyone gonna care?
Anyone gonna stand up and take on a dare?
We can create a new design
But guess who’s gotta resign?

The paper keeps rollin’ and we run where it goes
We follow the trail and we find the woes
Ink keeps printin’, pixels light up, and we jump at the call
We read how we can, and we know no-one can make that wall
So come on
Don’t stop the presses!

We’re reaching a point where everything we’ve done
Can be destroyed with the word of one
Humans all deserve so much better than this
And I know that we won’t all have instant bliss, but
We’ve all gotta rise up, won’t you heed my call?
Everyone, east to west, one and all
It’s time to make ’em see
What’s really liberty!

The paper keeps rollin’ and we run where it goes
We follow the trail and we find the woes
Ink keeps printin’, pixels light up, and we jump at the call
We read how we can, and we know no-one can make that wall
So come on
Don’t stop the presses!

We wake, we rise, we’re here tonight
To give fascists an awful fright
We wake, we rise, we’re here today
To make them hear what we have to say
We wake, we rise, we’re here tonight (We were never in control)
To give fascists an awful fright (There are no puppet strings we wield)
We wake, we rise, we’re here today (Invent all the stories you want)
To make them hear what we have to say (to rationalize your terrors)
We wake, we rise, we’re here tonight (We are the disenfranchised)
To give fascists an awful fright (We are the ones who wish to be free)
We wake, we rise, we’re here today (Free of corruption, free of hatred)
To make them hear what we have to say (So listen close)

(chant above in background)
We’re not rebelling just to sate some need for power
Over our fellow man
And we’re not mere children who throw a fit
Because the kid who ain’t like the rest of us can do what we can
Our song isn’t some phase, ain’t somethin’ to pass the days
It’s the beat to which we move
We’re not doing this because we want to annoy
We just haven’t got much left to lose

You say we’re doing this for attention?
In a way–we want everyone to see
That there are people, many people that see this nation
As what it is–allegedly free
So listen to just what it is we’re sayin’
Don’t act like you don’t know–world’s decayin’
‘Cause of folks up top, should be brought right down
Before they forge a crown

LISTEN UUUUUUUUUUUUUUP!

The paper keeps rollin’ and we run where it goes
We follow the trail and we find the woes
Ink keeps printin’, pixels light up, and we jump at the call
We read how we can, and we know no-one can make that wall
So come on
Don’t stop the presses!
Don’t stop the presses!
Don’t stop the presses!
Don’t! Stop! The! Presses!

The jumping cat made me laugh.

The rest, not so much! Civil unrest if Trump is impeached? How about civil unrest if he isn’t? We were just discussing him today at work, and how his Arizona rally was like a highlight reel of his doofus habits. Why does he keep talking constantly about crowd sizes? Why did he spend time praising his own speech? Why did he feel the need to assert that he was acting presidential on occasion? The right would be going apoplectic if Obama had done anything remotely similar. Just the fact that he feels a need to hold rallies when he has real work to do is a testament to his narcissism.

Well this is new. There is talk that Harvey will stall once it hits landfall. That will be bad. Very bad. San Antonio has a lot of flood control infrastructure (like giant tunnels, huge dams that usually don’t have water behind them, and a river that has steep embankments and a straight shot south) because this area is one of the most flood-prone areas in the continental US. All but the southern most part of town will probably be okay, though those towns south of here may be in real trouble (Sorry Victoria). I think we are fine here on the north side, but there is a creek not far from my house. We are on a bluff well above it, but 20 inches would probably be enough to flood this neighborhood. Hell, it’s enough to flood miles around. This could get interesting.

Well couple things:1. Gerrymandering is being challenged both legally with court cases (and courts are starting to be willing to do something however minor) and through the ballot box (I’m going to be volunteering for a group in Michigan trying to get a constitutional amendment on ballot forbidding it).

2. Saddly I’ve felt for awhile that a civil war in this country is inevitable. Doing the reading of history and politics sci that I’ve done has drawn me to the conclusion that any time two or more factions cannot agree on the nature of reality, war is inevitable as they can’t even agree on the facts to inform governing let alone govern.

The bad news is, they’re NOT gonna impeach trump. They don’t have the backbone, and they’ll never get it as long as the gerrymandering keeps them in power. The good news is, he will very likely quit when he realizes he’ll get his own show TV with a guaranteed positive audience for life

He’s too busy threatening to shut everything down if someone doesn’t fund his fucking vanity project, and trying to shunt billions more dollars into our already over-budgeted military.

Swedish politics story: Anna Kinberg Batra, the first ever woman leader of the Moderate Party (mainstream conservative), just resigned due to diminishing support from the party. She had been in crisis mode for an extended period of time since extending a hand to the overtly racist far right, with historically bad polling numbers as a result. With an election coming up almost exactly a year from now, she could have become Sweden’s first woman Prime Minister.

Something similar happened to the previous candidate for first woman PM, Mona Sahlin, who resigned from her post as the (first ever) chairwoman of the Social Democrats in 2011, after suffering two of her party’s worst election results in history (2009 EU parliament, 2010 general election).

I tend to think AKB’s resignation was appropriateand unavoidable, and I also believe that Sahlin was lucky to resign when she did, as she was sitting on massive future scandals waiting to burst (blatant corruption). Even so, it’s frustrating that we still can’t seem to let a woman lead the country. For the upcoming election, only a win for the right wing could produce a woman PM, and that’s dependent on who will be chosen as AKB’s successor. It’s also conceivable, though unlikely, that a more experienced and better liked leader of a smaller right wing ally might be elevated to PM in the case of a right wing victory. Annie Lööf of the Center Party would be the obvious candidate, with Ebba Busch Thor of the Christian Democrats an incredibly distant second.

I don’t know if it on topic or not but I just got back from my friend’s funeral and I’m drunk. She was queer. She was autistic. And that’s what killed her, those two things and the rest of society saying they were wrong, fucking 4chan and their “weaponized autism”. Those absolute stains on the sheets of humanity, they treat every autistic petson like theyre pawns in some meme war and every queer person like they should be lynched. She deserved better. My friend was a good person who deserved better. And I want to burn the world because it didn’t give it to her.

I can’t wrap my head around 4chan’s and every other alt-reichist latching over “autism”to describe their bullshit. I know it’s just an attempt at bring so edgy and offensive, but I wonder if it’s seriously a way for these fucks to try to get away with what they do, kinda like a “I (didn’t) mean it! I’m autistic ™”. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what they intend and expect everybody to just believe it

As a woman who is literally autistic, I can say with certainty that they are claiming to be autistic solely because they expect it will help them get away with things.

They may actually be autistic, but it’s not the reason for their asshattery.

@Zephkiel

My condolences. I concur that your friend deserved better–and that isn’t what the people of this world gave her. I speak as someone else who’s queer and autistic–people should feel safe and happy regardless of their sexuality, gender, or mental condition.

Thankfully, I am clear of the hurricane.

@Zeph, Jojo, and Sandra re: 4chan dropping “autism” left and right as a shit excuse

Again speaking as someone with autism, I should know it’s not an excuse to be an ass. It’s a reason, as I tell people who need to know, why I might start getting overly concerned about small things, or start flipping out if I receive conflicting instructions, or start crying more easily than other people, or just not look them in the eye as much as I should.

But if I’m an asshole, and I have been before, I know that’s on me as a person.

And with a screen in play, communication is so much easier for me. I don’t have to worry about unintentionally sounding monotone or looking distracted, and I can rethink my words before I post–and if I slop up, I don’t have to worry about someone being in my face and menacing while I produce an apology.

I can reasonably assume I am not the only person who benefits from such things.

It’s easier not to accidentally cock up when using text.

You have the time to think about what the hell you’re saying.

Using autism as an excuse for asshattery, especially online, is dishonest and deprecating of one’s actual ability to function.

Claiming to have autism when you don’t and using that as an excuse…that’s tarnishing autism’s reputation very unfairly, and also fuck that hypothetical person and those who match their description.

Take care, Gulf Coast friends! It’s a bit stormy I hear. Thinking of you today.

Re: autism and online douchebaggery
I just generally fucking hate people who claim or invoke a mental illness that they don’t actually suffer from. Like, you are not “sooo OCD” because you like to have your clothes arranged a certain way in your closet, and you are not “suuuch an alcoholic haha” because you like to have a few drinks on a Saturday night. A person citing these real illnesses that people really struggle with to explain their totally innocuous behavior cheapens those struggles, which is unacceptable.

Re: Roger Stone
LOL yeah, sure buddy, a bunch of whiny babies that piss and moan about how they “aren’t the hateful racist you see” when publicly challenged are totally going to riot in the streets if we depose the God Emperor. They definitely aren’t going to turn tail and run the first time the cops start shooting them with baton rounds. I guess maybe Stone thinks that the cops will be rioting too, which is a pretty damning thing to say about LEOs if true. But seriously, if the Waco and Ruby Ridge massacres, and the Oklahoma City Bombing, didn’t provoke the radical Christianists to open rebellion in the 1990s, when they had a much better case for actually being oppressed by the government, I think that we should be safe, on a national level at least, from a Trumpist revolt. That’s not to say that Trumpistas aren’t dangerous, but more in a “murdering vulnerable minorities because they think that they are ‘allowed’ to do that now” sort of way than an “actual Fourth Reich” sort of way.

Your friend deserved so much better than this shitty society. Why the fuck do people care so goddamn much who you love or how your brain works? It just doesn’t make any sense. They say autistic people are the ones who have trouble with social interaction but I think it’s the so-called “normal” people who have this need to butt into everyone else’s lives and dictate how they should gesture and how they should think and who they should love and how they should cope with the stress of dealing with them, all up in your business all the time. And these supposedly-good-at-social-interaction-people expect you to read their minds and blame you for failing the friendship when you can’t, but they don’t even tell you because they expect you to read their mind on that, too. And then you’re too sensitive if you’re hurt by that, but they’re not too sensitive for being offended you didn’t read their damn mind?

Sorry, that rant has been brewing for a while now.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar starred on TNT’s Franklin & Bash a few years ago. It was a really fun series where he and Breckin Meyer played unconventional, frat-bro type lawyers who stick up for the little guy and shake up an established LA law firm with their antics. It lasted 4 seasons, and I highly recommend it. Most recently he played a baseball player on the short-lived Fox series Pitch, about a woman who joins the MLB and becomes the first female pro baseball player.
