So, Five Thirty-Eight broke it down harsh-wise for my fellow Americans on the right: "For the GOP... things look grim, in large part because the country is becoming less white and more educated." Boom.
And honestly, I want to feel sorry for dumb white people. The world is changing, and it must be scary to feel you can't keep up. Maybe we ought to be more compassionate.
And then I read shit like this, over at Fox Nation, and I remember: Oh, yeah. They're just mean-spirited illiterate fuckwads who deserve nothing but the worst the world can offer.
What happened was, Home Depot began setting up crafts booths at gay pride events around the country. Kinda nice if you're a kid whose gay dads or lesbian moms are having fun while you're bored, right? Well, that's not how the World Nut Daily saw it. They pissed and farted in their patented paranoid cockslap style. And yeah, they went for the "Homo Depot" gag in the headline. (Seriously? What grade are we in?)
So then Uncle Rupert's Anger Bear Jamboree picked the story up, opening the floor for comments. Comments like:
Lulz. And oh, yeah:
To conclude: Not all conservatives are assholes. But if you're an asshole, you're probably a conservative.
