Re: “Congressman Raul Grijalva Tests Positive for COVID-19

Turning a pandemic into a partisan issue, as Tchump and his legions of moronic cult followers have so eagerly done, is a sure sign that the fall of the American Empire is nigh.

The U.S. is by far the richest country the world has ever seen, yet has proven to be utterly incapable of effectively protecting and caring for its citizenry. The corruption and incompetence laid bare by this pandemic is truly an "emperor-wears-no-clothes" moment, yet even now, with 160,000 dead and no end in sight, there are still many millions of people inside the American bubble who refuse to see it.

Individually, all we have to do is wear a f%&#ing mask and use some common sense, yet there are many millions of people here who cannot muster the basic responsibility or decency or consideration to do even that. It's pathetic and embarrassing. We are a global laughing stock for our complete failure to handle this crisis.

Tchump is the perfect leader for these end times: a selfish, greedy, mendacious, narcissistic moron who is more interested in "owning the libs" than doing his job. He is the quintessential American, a 21st Century Schizoid Man with no morals, no conscience, and no future.

Re: “County Attorney Candidate Returns Contribution from Man Facing Manslaughter Charges for Shooting His Girlfriend in the Head

If the lame-ass cops and prosecutors had done their jobs eight years ago, this whole issue would probably be moot. Instead, as is the case all too often with violence against women, this crime was not investigated and prosecuted with the urgency and care needed to actually ensure justice.

White man kills woman, gets away with murder. What else is new? I'll bet that Laura Conover would have pursued this case more aggressively in the first place.

Re: “Huckelberry Warns School Districts To Not Reopen for In-Person Learning on Aug. 17

Hm, yeah, OK, because it's better to listen to local daycare facilities when deciding how to deal with a global public health crisis than a cooperative, highly-skilled organization that was specifically designed to deal with public health issues.

You really can't make this shit up. Satire is officially dead. It was killed by a pandemic of idiocy.

Re: “Critics: Trump order to exclude undocumented migrants in Census will fail

Even the Supreme Court, which is packed with right-wing zealots, has already rejected one attempt by this profoundly racist administration to game the census. Yet Tchump and his racist cult still cling to the hope that brown people will be officially dehumanized and made invisible, and their dream of a Great White America will be realized (at least on paper).

Re: “Arizonans recall John Lewis, heap tributes on late civil rights leader

Only a truly vile scumbag would stoop like a vulture over the corpse of such a peaceful, selfless, profoundly American hero and croak such vicious nonsense.

Re: “As AZ Emerges as a Swing State in 2020 Presidential Contest, DNC Launches New Ad Targeting Trump on Tucson Airwaves

This is the kind of mindless, hysterical, anti-predator propaganda that has resulted in the systematic persecution and near-extinction of a number of species such as jaguars, grizzly bears, Mexican wolves, etc.

There is no scientific basis or logical rationale to demonize predator-human interactions in this way. It plays on medieval stereotypes and false tropes that encourage and reinforce ignorance and intolerance. There are better metaphors (or how about just the straight truth--is that not bad enough????) that could be used.

This ad is no better than neanderthal Republican ads that play on people's fears and biases. Another idiotic Dumbocratic FAIL. It's no wonder they lose elections they should win....

Re: “Tucson City Council Repeals Controversial Police Ordinance Allowing Officers To Set Crime Scene Boundaries To Limit Filming of Officers

Implicit bias, by definition (look it up, please!), implies no moral judgment whatsoever, of heart, mind, agenda or anything else. "Implicit" in this context means internalized and unconscious.

White people (including me) have implicit bias because it is drummed into our heads by our racist society from the time we are infants, by countless media messages, community standards, racist institutions, day-to-day interactions and communications, etc. We absorb it whether we like it or not and it definitely affects our behavior, whether we realize it and acknowledge it or not.

The way to address it is to be aware of it and how it affects our behavior and to take steps to counteract it. The morally necessary reaction is to be anti-racist.

Moral judgment only arises when people pretend that racism doesn't exist, deny that implicit bias exists, or refuse or actively resist taking steps to counteract their corrosive effects on our society.
