Civil Rights Right Wing Morons WTF?!

Ted Nugent Disgustingly Compares Himself To Civil Rights Icon Rosa Parks

Washed-up rock star Ted Nugent says he’s just like civil rights icon Rosa Parks because at the height of the COVID pandemic, he refused to wear a protective mask.

During an appearance on right-wing media outlet Real America’s Voice, Nugent bragged:

“What a beautiful statement, ‘I will not comply.’ I’m like Rosa Parks with a Glock. You try to give me a stupid, immoral, nonsensical, arbitrary, capricious, punitive, mandate mask puke, and I will not comply.”

According to HuffPost, this isn’t the first time Nugent has compared himself to Parks:

Nugent has a history of invoking Parks during his right-wing screeds. In 2019, he blasted a Michigan law that banned the baiting of deer and elk, and called it a “Rosa Parks moment” when hunters refused to comply, according to the Detroit Free Press. And in 2013, amid reports that then-President Barack Obama could issue an executive order to help reduce gun violence, Nugent also made the comparison.

“There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks, and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed,” Nugent told World Net Daily.

In 2007, Nugent publicly threatened former president Barack Obama, suggesting at a concert that Obama could “suck on my machine gun.”

And in 2018 Nugent called survivors of the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, “liars,” “soulless,” and “poor, mushy-brained children” after they began advocating for gun control in the United States.

Nugent’s latest comparison of himself to Parks got him significant blowback on social media.

Civil Rights Crime Justice Department

Kyle Rittenhouse Facing Federal Charges As DOJ Is Called On To Review Case

Accused Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty by a jury of his peers today, with NBC News reporting:

Rittenhouse was charged with reckless homicide in the slaying of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and intentional homicide in the death of Anthony Huber, 26.

He also faced a charge of attempted intentional homicide for severely wounding Gaige Grosskreutz, a 27-year-old paramedic from suburban Milwaukee who was there that night volunteering his medical services, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety.

But Rittenhouse is not in the clear legally. He could still face federal charges, and the Justice Department is being called on review the case and see if he should be charged.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted out a call for the DOJ to take a close look at Rittenhouse:


Specifically, Rittenhouse could face being charged with federal civil rights violations and a hate crime. That decision will have to be made by the DOJ, and it could impact future cases of this type when protesters are targeted by those who disagree with them.

So while Kyle Rittenhouse may be in the clear for the moment, there’s a very good chance he’s going to be back in court very soon, and his luck will eventually run out.

Civil Rights Donald Trump Jr. GOP Whining Social Media

Don Jr. And Lauren Boebert Own Themselves By Spreading BS About Meat Rationing By Joe Biden

There’s an old saying attributed to Benjamin Franklin that goes, “Believe none of what you hear and believe half of what you see.”

Sadly, however, not everyone practices that helpful axiom, especially those who are intent on repeating lies and conspiracy theories such as the majority of right-wing political figures in the United States these days.

If you need proof that some people are too damn lazy to even do a simple Google search before they post something on social media, consider the case of Donald Trump Jr. (aka Traitor Tot) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who is in the running with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Junior and Ms. Boebert ran across a report from Fox News that claimed President Joe Biden’s plan to combat climate change would include encouraging Americans to reduce their meat consumption by 90% within the next 10 years.

Problem is, as fact-check websites pointed out, that’s simply not true:

“At no point in this speech did Biden announce any initiative to impose a limit on red meat consumption. At no point in his presidency has Biden suggested policies aimed at limiting red meat consumption.”

Yet despite that, Boebert and Don Jr. started tweeting and getting others to retweet the lie:

Lies. All of it. No one is cutting anything. As many people pointed out, stupidity is a terrible thing:

The next time you think you’ve encountered the dumbest person on the face of the planet, remember that Junior and Klanny Oakley are too stupid and lazy to spend 10 seconds doing some research on the internet.
