The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

They're also dedicated to injustice, greed, and death too, Subby.

After stigginit, of course.

Today I am officially coming out for smaller government. Can we just eliminate the GOP and call it a day? Lower taxes, no McConnell. I don't see any downsides.

It's funny, but they say the same thing about the Democrats.

A less cynical person would point out that their god is keen on issuing warnings. Like stop being assholes or I'll send a plague.

Wait a minute...

Maybe they're all secretly Cenobites

And? Domestic abusers also claim their partner is actually the abusive one.
Doesn't make it true.

But you see, they're disingenuous coonts. And we as a nation have listened to those traitorous insurrectionist pricks for far, far too long. But, Dems said nasty things about Republicans once, and that's the same as invading the farking Capitol, am I right?

So they're like the cops

Whataboutism is the only thing they have left.

The GOP is NOT a terrorist organization.
The similarity in values, tactics and morality is just coincidence.

I came across that movie on youtube.  Mok and McConnell would get along perfectly.

The first truth.

Not great cinema, but the real worst part about that movie is the lack of an actual soundtrack.  Some of the individual artists released their songs, but not all.

The way they're acting, they seem dedicated to their own pain and suffering if they don't manage to actually kill American Democracy.

They say a lot of things, but it always turns out to be lies.

Which is odd because it looks like Democratic voters are the gluttons for punishment.

The Washington Post is dedicated to pay walls.

You really need to put more effort into it.  What you posted amounts to "Nuh uh, you are!".  C'mon, have some self respect.

It is called Sadopopulism a style of governance that actively hurts the governed

Get into power by promising people things, as in traditional populism. But once you're in power, you deliberately make people suffer. Then you tell a story about how their pain is the fault of "others," however it's useful for you to define then. Did you lose your job? Those outsiders took it. Does your healthcare suck? It's because outsiders are ruining it. Are people running around doing things that you're uncomfortable with? It's those outsiders trying to destroy our traditional values.

Then people gladly give you more and more power to end their pain, hold the government blameless, or decide you are not doing enough and vote in someone more extreme

I read a story that went like this. A lot of innocent people ended up in bad places in the story I read.

If your only goal is to 'own the libs' the logical end is just a mass grave.

Don't sell them short, they're also dedicated to pedophilia and (other forms of) child abuse.

Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: pain, suffering, ruthless inhumanity, an almost fanatical devotion to tax cuts...
