(Talking Points Memo)   Michigan Republicans want to ban drag shows in schools, even though they admit that drag shows aren't happening in schools. "I don't think that we need to have a problem occur in the state of Michigan before we address it," one of them argued   (talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line

Okay, but what is their plan for when the Mole People invade? Oh, you think there's no such thing as Mole People? How long have you been burying your head in the sand?

/Seriously, that's the best way to see them!

Tack on actual real gun control such as banning assault weapons and it'll be considered.

/Easiest way to poison pill any debate about GQP legislation

Thank you for Today's Made Up from Whole Cloth Republican Outrage.

Tommow: Democrats are trying to ban your reading glasses to force you to hae dangerous eye surgery with rusty razor blaswa.

If you believe anything Repugs say, you sound old, fat and lazy..

You sure you want to ban public money going to drag shows? I'm just thinking about the legislators that might accidentally go to a drag show and expense the bill and all.
 
2022-07-04 2:49:17 PM  
I don't know if this will gain traction in Michigan. Drag shows are pretty popular there.

Great. And let's ban dinosaur mc nuggets in school lunches while we're at it.

I have it on good authority fro Fox News that this nation is being besieged by ILLEGAL drag queen migrant caravans from Mexico who want to take our jobs and benefits and teach our children to be trans.

They were just looking for directions to get away from there!

The Cub Scout pack I was in did a drag show and it was silly fun. But that was quite a few decades ago before everyone got so concerned it'd turn us gay or something.

I went to a farking ag/engineering university, and the drag show nights were farking popular even with the conservative crowd.

I wonder her how that's changed.

Will the bill include illegalizing and prosecuting those who go out of the state of Michigan to drag shows?

They're not teaching sex ed in kindergarten either but DeSantis felt the need to make a law against it anyway.

Some Republican politicians believe there are schools with litter boxes for students, that self-identify as cats, to do their business.  If they can make you believe in absurdities, they can get you to commit atrocities.

Can't wait for them to bring back witch trials...

I think we should ban Republican cocaine orgies in schools.

So let's see if they're for or against that.
 
2022-07-04 5:38:28 PM  
Unless it's lead in the water, then we'll just cover that up.
 
2022-07-04 5:39:09 PM  
And here I thought they were the party of small government. Isn't creating more onerous regulations that do absolutely nothing to solve a problem that doesn't exist the exact antithesis of "cutting bloated regulations and red tape"?
 
2022-07-04 5:39:35 PM  
Maybe ban kidnapping the governor, first.
 
2022-07-04 5:39:49 PM  
Oh, look, it's been more projection for decades: "Democrats like big government and pass unnecessary laws for problems that don't exist."
 
2022-07-04 5:42:23 PM  
I bet they can't even define "drag" in a way that doesn't violate like 6 constitutional rights.
 
2022-07-04 5:42:33 PM  
There have been schools bringing in drag performers. I don't think it's all that common but it has been happening since drag is trendy right now for whatever reason.
 
2022-07-04 5:42:38 PM  
Good thing they don't have anything useful to do, like fixing this s__t.

I'm all for proactive solutions: an ounce of prevention as they say. You should be sure that you're solving something that would actually be a problem if it occurred though. A drag show is literally just people showing off clothes, right?

It is far easier to be seen as winning a culture war than it is to govern or legislate.

You know what...? Yes, let's ban drag shows in schools. Good idea.

Well Minnesota apparently accidentally legalized pot edibles, so it might work.

I just banned all Republicans from sucking my ****.

Yeah, I know Republicans want to suck my **** real bad but if you vote Republican, you can't.

So look at my **** and drool Republicans, you're NEVER getting any.

Considering the state of schools now a drag show might be the most educational thing they get all week.

Every Republican-heavy state legislature that contains enough Democrats to hold up bills this way has a moral obligation to do so.

If by trendy for conservatives to be outraged by it, yes.

Members of interstate racketeering conspiracies masquerading as a political party should already be in jail awaiting felony charges.

Do they not do the powder puff games anymore? Football players in cheerleader outfits is definitely drag. I'm old so it might not be a thing anymore?

Questions for Republicans: How many children have been slaughtered by drag shows in school?  You have a solution for that but no solutions for the slaughter of children by random nutjobs with assault rifles?

/The cruelty is the point.
