Nutballs burn cell towers in UK

A conspiracy theory that claims that 5G internet is behind the coronavirus outbreak has led to arson attacks on more than 70 cell phone towers in the UK.

The conspiracy theory began to gain traction in the UK in late March and early April, coinciding with the rising number of cases in the country and its nationwide lockdown. Conspiracies around phone signals have existed for years, however…

Mobile UK told Business Insider on Wednesday that the number has now risen to 77, and that the rate of attacks was thankfully slowing. “Daily attacks are very low now but have not stopped entirely”…

Idjits everywhere in the world are united by a common bond of stupid, often dangerous, acts of violence, mostly because their pea-brains comprehend no science…though the vacant space is often filled with superstition and fear.

Girl Scouts versus Trump

❝ In an extraordinary rebuke of the President of the United States, the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. have obtained a restraining order against Donald J. Trump.

The order, which the Girls Scouts were granted on Monday night, prevents Trump from coming within three hundred feet of any gathering of the Scouts’ organization.

❝ Carol Foyler, a Girl Scouts spokesperson, said that while the G.S.U.S.A. sought the restraining order “out of an abundance of caution,” the girls themselves were “in no way, shape or form” afraid of President Trump.

“They’re prepared to deal with bobcats and bears,” she said. “They can handle a malignant narcissist.”

❝ Trump wasted little time responding to the Girl Scouts’ action, lashing out at the organization in a blistering early-morning tweet storm.

“Failing Girl Scouts bad (or sick) guys,” Trump wrote. “Mints, cookies terrible. Sad!”

Good satire, successful satire depends on getting really close to the truth. The scumbag in the White House, our proto-fascist so-called president, fits into this piece by Andy Borowitz like the stink of old dead fish on melted ice.

NPR Tweets the Declaration of Independence and Idjit Trump Supporters Were Offended

Welcome to 2017’s version of Republican conservatism


Bill Clark/CQ-Roll Call

In honor of the Fourth of July, aka Independence Day, NPR decided to tweet out the Declaration of Independence. Unfortunately, some Twitter users mistook the document as biased propaganda.

❝ Supporters of President Trump tweeted out their objections to NPR’s thread saying it was one-sided and the reason NPR would lose their funding.

They did not realize the radio station was simply breaking up the Declaration into 140 character segments.

Here’s the tweet-by-tweet transcription of this subversive tweetcast.
