Ever read the fan fiction that used to be on Tonya Harding's website? It was detailed and graphic. People actually put a lot into it and were invested.

Rittenhouse's fans will be here shortly to display their fan fiction, which is far more tasteless than anything that was on Harding's site.

It ain't just Texas.   We already have the tag for it:   'Murica.

Rittenhouse should be racked and stretched before being disemboweled while still alive, then decapitated.

I don't think George Floyd qualifies as a hero.  What did he do that makes him exemplary?
He shouldn't have been killed, no.  What happened to him was terrible and no one in that position deserves to be killed by the police.  But what did he do that schoolkids should also do?  Either it was a hamfisted assignment or I'm missing something, or both.

Yeah, they put George Floyd along with Gandhi and Malcolm X? Rittenhouse AND one of his victims?

This entire assignment sounds like it was just trying to make the news.

George Floyd isn't a hero.  He is a martyr.

But some people can't separate martyr from hero, apparently.

Well. I mean, that kid did live the right winger wet dream. He crossed state lines in his machine gun to go black guy hunting. Of course right wingers revere him as a hero.

My essay:

Kyle was a hero because he gave old white guys half an election for 3 minutes while they indulged their own murder fantasies at the expense of innocent lives.

Should I double space or are we good?
 
2020-09-18 11:52:02 AM  
Trolled your way out of a job, dummy.

Neither Floyd or Rittenhouse belongs on that list. And what kind of sources are you going to cite for a biography of a 17 year old who's main accomplishment is premeditated murder?

Why.  Why auto-correct "erection" to election?

This is the darkest timeline.
 
2020-09-18 11:53:40 AM  
Rittenhouse was suggested as "hero for the modern age" along with the possible subjects of Gandhi, Cesar Chavez, Malcolm X, George Floyd and Joseph Rosenbaum - one of the Rittenhouse's alleged victims.

...That's a shiat list of "heroes for the modern age."

Martyrs choose to die for their cause. George Floyd was a victim.

He's not a martyr either; he wasn't put to death for his beliefs.  He's just a tragic example.

Lee Harvey Oswald is way, way up my list of "modern heroes" from Vile Kyle shiattenhouse.

I don't even like LHO. I think he was a dim, phoney wannabe and probably a Psych Op.

But you know what they say, of the dead, speak no evil.

I wish I could say the same abbout Vile Kyle. But he resolutely refuses to be excusable.

Texas is not an open carry state unless you have a License To Carry. It seems more like we we need a Chicago tag to cover the dozens of weekly senseless shootings despite their harsh gun laws ("Oh, but Indiana!!" - yeah, yeah, yeah, then why doesn't Indiana or Texas have this crap happen every day...)

Not for lulz, for giving the teacher a proper UFIA before reporting him for making a shiat choice.

The assignment asks for two pages, so you'll have to up the font size and narrow the margins too.

Ummm, that's it? No "oh and we fired the idiot who designed this assignment."

Texans are too busy dealing with exploding deregulated industrial locations to have time to run around shooting one another.

As 9/11 demonstrated, America uses "hero" because it's afraid to say "martyr."

Then they'd have to put up with the dumbfarkery of their fascist classmates.
If a teacher is this farked up, I guarantee some of the parents in the area are just as nuts, and have raised their kids poorly.
