wait let me laugh even harder!

if there's some good anti-critical race theory community service organizations I can work for

oh dear lord, I don't know if I can laugh that hard.

"If Project Veritas doesn't meet the standard then I don't know what does because they pursue the interests that ordinary people can't afford to pursue," McCloskey said.

He's a lawyer.  Nobody ever said he was smart.

Well.  My submission went green, but that wasn't my link or my headline.

"I'm going to look to see if there's some good anti-critical race theory community service organizations I can work for, and we'll see what they say about that," McCloskey said.

Too stupid to go to a church? Ah, but you can't grif that way, since churches funnel money to the pastor, not to your lazy ass or the poor schmucks that go there.

Try the local Klan chapter, idiot.

These aholes are putting in a lot of work to avoid actually doing charity work. But they are totally Christians.

Define Christian.

Them: Somebody who's right

Define being right.

Them: Somebody who has the power to enforce their will.

That's what Christianity is to fascism, another in-group to punish the weaker Other.

I guess there's your local ku klux klan chapter, I'm sure you're already well acquainted, but i doubt you can claim they're a community service organization, you farking idiot.

Well, that's to get their law licenses back.  The governor pardoned the criminal charges.

Sad fact:  He doesn't have a connection in government that will sign off on his hunnered hours.  Absolute worst case:  You sit in an state office and BS with a state worker about the minorities getting all the free stuff for 100 hours including 2 hour lunches and breaks.

I knew people that could get their community service signed off without putting on the vest and standing on the side of the road saying it's too hot or too cold.

Most probable: gets invited to speak at a week-long getaway retreat and lead a small group discussion about what marriage or whatever soft topic they want. They work 45 minutes a day making sure to take plenty of pictures, then at the end of the week the non-profit signs off for 100 hours of community service.

Bonus: it will be held at a resort and their room will be complimentary.

Anti Critical Race Theory organizations...

Like, all of them?  Since none of them promote it? Ever? Since it's not a thing anywhere except advanced college courses?

Or do you just mean places that allow me to remain an openly racist sh*tstain of a human being without challenge?  Because I think that's what you mean

When you view Star Wars through the lens of the Empire as tax-and-spend Democrats who leave farmers to die while only carrying about the voting elite on crime-ridden Coruscant  and install genderless bathrooms and locker rooms for stormtroopers on the deathstar, the appeal of the Republican rebellion in those movies makes a lot more sense.

As a general rule if it is what they want to do anyways, it probably should not be allowed for their community service.

"If Project Veritas doesn't meet the standard then I don't know what does because they pursue the interests that ordinary people can't afford to pursue,"

So - people who breed racehorses, collect famous paintings, and maintain superyachts are all charitable legal assistance organizations. Got it.

I don't know. I mean, he could be smart. Really smart. But a cynical, manipulative sociopath, who is following orders from some high up republican donor who is coaching him in what to say.

I mean we all sit back and talk about how stupid conservatives are day and night but I think the reality is much scarier, and that is that a lot of them are not stupid at all, but simply selling stupid, dangerous ideas as an easily digestible product to the rubes, in order to shore up their own agenda.

What's sad is, everything chewd said would have made perfect sense to George Lucas in 1977. What you said would have been word salad to a Republican in 2014.

I did my community service (caught with fake ID) at a library. Low stress, plenty of stuff to do in an AC environment.  I'd often take a rack of books to reshelf and end up reading one for lengths of time.

Got the suggestion from my roommate who did community service (DUI) as his lawyer suggested it.

NCSB
There was some other 20 yr olds doing the same thing at the library I was at (big place). Kind of started hitting it off with one cutie. Learned she was caught for grand larceny. Then the big head told the little head to reconsider if community service workers was the wisest place to find dates.

Not that HOAs are good, but they also were on the commonly-owned area of a condo which created real liability for all their neighbors and a chance of their losing property value to pay the settlement.

If you were in charge of a group that provided assistance to the needy, would you want that asshole hanging around "helping" for 100 hours?  Look at the guy, he wouldn't be any help even just schlepping boxes - he couldn't do physical labor longer than 20 minutes.  And you know he's gonna not shut up longer than 5 minutes about Trump and the election or blacks or whatever stick he has up his butt.

Stick him on a road crew picking up garbage or park his as in a cell.
