I’m probably just including this story because given how many words I have devoted to my distaste for Donald Trump, I want it to be known that at least one dude dislikes him more than me.
But seriously, asshole, vandalism isn’t the answer. It makes people who support Trump look more reasonable than those of us who know he’s a bigoted, misogynistic, narcissist, who would probably be the worst President in the history of our country. Which is saying a lot since Buchanan set the bar pretty low, not even George W. Bush was able to limbo under it.
I’ve read people likening it to the destruction of statues of Lenin or Hussein but the thing is: Trump hasn’t been elected yet. And hopefully he’s not going to be. Does it make sense that we should destroy a statue of John McCain simply because we don’t like his stance on using the Senate to blockade the Supreme Court?
Or destroy a statue of George W. Bush because he was a terrible President?
I don’t think there is justification for this kind of behavior. If you think it would be wrong for someone to destroy something that says Hillary Clinton (or Gary Johnson or Jill Stein), it is just as wrong to destroy something that says Donald Trump.
If you’ve got a problem with Trump, how about you work your ass off to make sure he doesn’t get elected? Read More…
This is actually two week’s worth of stuff and it is still pretty short. I guess that the mild summer is taking a toll on people acting like crazy idiots. Not all of them, though.
Now let’s be clear – this guy is completely nuts. He blew up a dog because he believed it was possessed. Normal people don’t have a tendency to do that sort of thing.
He’s charged with possession of explosives but not with animal cruelty.
Because the dog died instantaneously and therefore did not experience any pain.
Now look, the guy needs to go a mental institution because he’s pretty clearly fucked up. Animal cruelty or no animal cruelty, he’s quite a few bullets short of a loaded gun.
You have to wonder about a law, though, that won’t allow you to charge someone with animal cruelty when you blow the animal up. Pain or no pain, that seems like a pretty cruel thing to do, doesn’t it?
