Less than 18 months to go from "Back the Blue" to "Defund the FBI"

Not bad...

Glad to see the right wing getting on board with the defund movement. Maybe we can actually get some shiat done!

Nothing has changed, because nothing they say is in good faith. It's all dog whistles and trolling. Top to bottom.

Their whole bacterial microcosm of a social subset started making a lot more sense, when I began framing everything that way.

The people who vote for her can barely remember all three of their own middle names, much less something that they saw on twitter a year and a half ago. Brining it up now only makes it FAKE NEWS to those folks.

Actually, "local law enforcement == good, federal law enforcement == bad" is a consistent message for their crowd.  They want the "good old boys" network back so they have control of who ever is labeled "other" with no oversight.

"BACK THE BLUE!" except when it's Jan 6th or the police try to tell us we can't do what we want. Then they can die.

"DEFUND THE FBI!" except whenever we call on them to lock up Hillary or Hunter Biden.

They don't mean to back the blue or to defund the FBI. It's all short-hand for "don't you dare try to hold us accountable for our actions, meanwhile people we don't like should be punished whether or not they actually did anything wrong"

Suddenly, there were FBI agents everywhere.  Looking confused.  Offering to sell their guns for food.  They had no charge codes to put on their payroll sheets.  Their suits smelled without the weekly martinizing.  Big SUVs sat in the parking garage.  No gas in their tanks. Some agents openly wept.

They had been defunded.
 
2022-08-09 1:12:56 PM  
The difference is clear:  The blue are cops that work for the local good guys, the FBI are the men in black working for THE MAN.
 
2022-08-09 1:13:18 PM  
Look, this is a perfectly consistent and principled stance.

It's just that their principle is "the police should go after them, not us"

I hope some cops are getting the message that the right does not and has never supported them. They were just a convenient messaging tool like the coal miners they abandoned or the veterans they continually screw over.
 
2022-08-09 1:14:41 PM  
Of course she would want to defund the FBI. They handle counterintelligence against Russian agents in the US.

Everyone knows the FBI aren't real police. They don't even wear uniforms. They are illegal Marxist gazpacho police so of course they should be defunded.

really not that much of a dichotomy.

most of these nutters hate the feds and have a warped, if not entirely fabricated, understanding of the posse comitatus act.

and they're rampant hypocrites so it really all falls into place.

From the same galaxy brains that took less than two weeks at the start of covid to go from "It's a Democrat Hoax(sic)" to "China did this to us ON PURPOSE".

I wish you guys wouldn't pile on her like that.  She's just going to take it out on me when she gets home, and she's under a lot of stress.

I't is easier to just declare the KKK a terrorist organization and barr their members from public service.

/instantly fewer school shootings and eliminate 90% of the corrupt cops, judges and lawyers.
 
2022-08-09 1:24:43 PM  
IDK, I kind of feel gaslighted here, because they have hated the FBI for years now. Here is a meme I made that was definitely made after Trump took office. Am I missing something???

The media keeps acting like its sufficient to point out the GOP's hypocrisy. It's not. In MTG's mind, these two tweets are completely consistent.

She (and the GOP) simply believe that the job of law enforcement is to shoot black people and to punish antifa and liberals. That is called "law and order." What is not acceptable is for law enforcement to do anything against the GOP / "real Americans". That is called "tyranny."

Republican principles are nothing more than a bumper sticker slogan with an asterisk that reads....

" *except when it applies to me."

Keep that in mind any time they feel the need to insert their two cents into any rational adult discourse.

Ahh the GoP. shiatting on veterans, shiatting on law enforcement, and both groups will still vote GoP.

It helps to remember conservatives are all about protecting the privileged group and enforcing punitive rules on out-groups. They work with external locuses of control and fear being ostracized.

So in this case, their god-king is mortal, and they are worried they're going to lose their special status to keep criming and being horrible selfish assholes with impunity.

Also, she might be a person of interest for all I know.

All they have is manufactured outrage, and it's getting harder for their users to get their fix, what with tolerance and natural consequences and all.

No no no, see, the FBI is bad.  Your local sheriff who encourages their deputies to shoot minorities needs more urban assault vehicles and claymore mines.
