Mean people and wild goats.

Tow truck driver Kenneth Shupe from North Carolina refused to tow the car of Cassy McWade because she supports Bernie Sanders and he is a Trump supporter.I feel like I am living in Barrow, Alaska in the middle of winter. I honestly could not tell the last time I saw the sun. It might not be 67 days ago, but it sure as ell feels like it.

And don't even get me started on the rain. April showers is supposed to bring May flowers; not more showers.

Anywhoo, the weather here on the East Coast kind of fits the mood of the country right now.
Maybe that's why we have been so mean to each other of late.

Think about it. You have the trump supporter who drives a tow truck refusing to help a disabled Bernie supporter who was stranded on the side of the road. He said that god told him not to help the poor woman. I guess the god of trump is not merciful.

 "This, ladies and gentlemen, is Donald Trump's America.

On Monday, a disabled woman's car broke down 45 minutes away from her home after she was in an accident in Asheville, North Carolina. When her family mechanic could not come to get her, he called a local tow truck driver — who also happens to be an evangelical Christian who voted for Donald Trump. What happened next defies common decency, the basic tenets of Christianity and good business practice.

Ken Shupe arrived on the scene to tow Cassy McWade's car and even began the process of hooking her car up to be towed. It was then that he noticed that she had a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker on her car." [Source]

Of course we all know what happened next. Sorry Cassy.  Next time leave the bumper sticker at home. We are trying to "make America great again."

But Bernie's supporters shouldn't get on their high horses just yet, because they were out on the political trail  being mean as well.

"Just days after Donald Trump sewed up the title of presumptive Republican presidential nominee, supporters of independent Vermont Senator and upstart Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders came out in force to disrupt a Hillary Clinton speech in Los Angeles, forcing her to end the event early. Speaking to a largely Latino crowd in Monterey Park, Clinton weathered interruption after interruption, and as the local ABC affiliate reported, the protesters being led out all had Bernie Sanders’ name on their lips." [Source]

Things got so disruptive that Hillary had to cut her speech short.

People are so mean in America these days that poor Glenn Beck is literally crying about our sad state of affairs. Or at least the sad state of affairs of the republican party.

"Today on his radio program, the host let it be known that the GOP now belongs to Donald Trump and if Trump is the face of the party, that makes the party a bunch of racists. He disavowed everything he claimed Trump has caused the Republican party to stand for now, insisting that he has nothing to do with them anymore. He even went as far as to say Hillary Clinton will win the election.

“You will never elect another GOP person to high office ever again,” he claimed. His reasoning was that Trump has made the party appear so racist and Clinton will continue capitalizing on that, mobilizing a new generation of Democrat voters."

Glenn Beck calling the republican party a party of racist? My lord! What is the world coming to? 

Next you are going to tell me that wild goats have taken over a town somewhere. Wait....

@Field: "Glenn Beck calling the republican party a party of racist? My lord! What is the world coming to?"

It's a kind of "slut-shaming," although Trump is not a woman. It won't work, as Trump supporters are proud of who they are, and will continue to vote for him come November.

Besides, Trump is the last man standing.

At least the woman isn't a Latina. Otherwise, the Trumpkin tow truck driver might have towed her to the Mexican border.

Trump’s Secret Weapon is that he is NOT a movement conservative opposed to spending Social Welfare money — far from it. He just reasonably figures it should be spent on AMERICANS, White, Black, Hispanic, not foreigners mooching. A quite reasonable attitude.

Paul Mendez said...

The next six months are going to be a hell of a ride. As Trump rises in the polls, the visceral, spit-spraying anger will get worse and worse.

Anybody who doubts Trump’s patriotism should chew on this: I suspect Trump’s chances of death or serious injury between now and the election are greater than police officers, firefighters or military personnel overseas. He is literally laying his life on the line for his country.

Trump will make it really ugly, but he will lose, and we will be left to repair the damage he has done to the social fabric while being demonized and fought tooth and nail by his supporters and Republicans who don't support him but don't know how to do anything else. So, really, business as usual.

Trump's secret weapon is that he is a strident racist running for a job (Republican presidential nominee) selected by a voter base (the Republican primary electorate) that is heavily made up of racists.

Oops, the primary is over now. He has no secret weapon anymore.

There has been a surge of Islamophobic hate crimes since the end of 2015.

Hmmm ... what happened at the end of 2015? Oh yeah, now I remember.

So that kind of sucks. As a silver lining, though, the Republican Party will now be destroyed. Good riddance.

dinthebeast said...

I don't see how it will be destroyed. All of those Republicans will still be there doing the same things they have always been doing.
To quote the dearly departed Frank Zappa:
It won't blow up and disappear
It'll just look ugly for a thousand years.

Trump took a dump
On the country's front lawn,
And found to his surprise
That people liked his lies;
And before his work was done,
Once again, they would stun,
As the people couldn't wait
To crown him their candidate

The Purple Cow said...

"Anybody who doubts Trump’s patriotism should chew on this:"

1. Who gives a shit about patriotism?

2. Trump cares about nobody in the world but himself. His alleged 'patriotism' extends only as far as he can earn money and power for himself.

Limpbaugh said...

I think aggression should be directed at the establishment media and politicians, not their sheep. I really wanted to comment on why Van Jones is right the other day but my keyboard is messed up. Van Jones sees through the establishment. He was fired from the Obama administration for being a 9/11 truther. Some of the other people who spoke out and are no longer in government are Max Cleland, CYnthia McKinney, Tom Daschle, and Anthony Weiner.

Make America Great Again said...

Wait... What? When paid leftwing protesters tried to disrupt and stop Donald J. Trump spreading the word of hope, field called it a "right" and he defended his people.

But when a protester disrupts hillary's lies and bullshit, field cries because America is so mean.

Without double standards, the left would have no standards at all.

Help United America. Trump 2016 said...

Actually, this is America obama has created. Cassy McWade should be thankful the man wasn't obama's son or a hillary supporter. She would have been beaten to death.

If we're looking for a metaphor for our sorry state of affairs, Glenn Beck critiquing Donald Trump's candidacy will do handsomely.

Only if you ignore the fact Beck is a Cruz supporter and he has been "critiquing" Trump from day one.

I thought Van Jones's article the other day was really stupid, but I couldn't be arsed to respond. The days of rational debate here are well behind us.

James Bold said...

You remember Trump's Muslim immigration moratorium, but you don't remember the San Bernardino jihad mass-murder which prompted it?  No wonder you think White people hate you for your skin; you have no ability to relate cause and effect.

Just how you manage with Terry Schaivo-level rational functions while still writing grammatical English I don't know, but I'm sure someone could get at least a master's thesis out of it.

simon said...

American politics is a joke.

Everything the left doesn't agree with is "racist". You know Trump isn't racist, but he has to labelled as such because of your inability to think in any other terms. That's how your media tells you who you must vote for.

"Don't vote for that man who says he is going to stop the government from continuing to sell you out, he's a RACIST". You must vote for the hateful, nasty, lying, Wall Street-funded criminal who is being investigated for negligence, corruption and espionage. She is GOOD.

It's pathetic how effective it is.

Sorry, but I don't believe that tow truck story for one minute!

No good ole boy worth his salt is going to turn down a quick buck because of politics or a a mere sticker!and especially not in this economy my friend! Puhleeze! xD

Are you kidding? I live among good ole boys here, and I know how they operate,and the only thing one woulda done is give her the tow and try to convince her along the way to vote his way xD

Soros-funded hooligans disrupt Trump rallies, provoke and attack Trump supporters, and the media decries Trump for injecting violence into the political process.

It’s really a shame the Aryan Brotherhood didn’t set upon Obama rallies with bike chains in 2008, so that the Washington Post could have made the same lament about his resultingly ugly campaign.

Yeah, it's fat, and disabled.

Guess why she loves Bernie!

I'll bet she hasn't paid any Federal Tax, gets money from the taxpayers every year, disabilities payments out her FAT ass.

She obviously has a vehicle, so she can get to the Social Security office.

I wonder why she wants the Communist / Socialist Sanders to win?

Christ. This is what is wrong with you wingnuts. You can tell from a news story that a disabled person is obviously not disabled and must be faking because ... what? All disabled people are faking? Disability doesn't exist?

I think you're just jealous that no one has officially recognized your disability -- general stupidity -- and cut you a check.

I can tell, just from a picture, who has these problems. They tend to exhibit appearances of Mongoloid-ism, diabetes, and God only knows what else.

I wonder why field hasn't issued any updates or corrections for the Albany bus attack?



UAlbany women who claimed bus attack kicked out of school


The University at Albany confirmed that the three women who gained national attention after a January CDTA bus incident have been punished by the Student Conduct Board.
Ariel Agudio and Asha Burwell have been dismissed from the university and Alexis Briggs has been suspended for two years, according to an email sent Thursday by President Robert J. Jones to the UAlbany community.
The email, sent out 16 days after UAlbany decided the three women's student conduct cases, was released after the Times Union reported from a confidential letter informing Burwell she had been "disciplinarily dismissed" as of April 19.
Jones stated in the email he was writing to reaffirm UAlbany's commitment to accountability.
The women, who are black, said they were attacked by 12 to 20 people on a CDTA bus Jan. 30. Their accusations gained national attention, but they have since been charged for making the story up and in fact starting the fight.
The three were indicted by a grand jury and arraigned for 10 misdemeanor charges, including assault, attempted assault and false reporting, along with a violation for harassment.

Instead of dropping da mic field should man up and apology to Donald J. Trump and white people for linking them to this hoax.

Of course we know field would never do that....

The people in this country are divided, polarized, hate-filled for anyone who disagrees with them. From the President calling his rivals 'terrorists', to a presidential hopeful saying she "hated Republicans", and according to the Gallup Polls, the lowest race relations ratings in decades.

Thank Obama. Hopefully Trump can dilute the poison of the Obama administration.

Oh, really?  Do you really think that "our ilk" would not have had a problem with a White US president who publicly sympathized with a burglar and attempted murderer over his victims, who invited thugs to the White House, who encouraged riots, and who brought about the release of tens of thousands of violent felons who will inevitably create a crime wave?

Come to think of it, you probably do.  This is because your mind does not work right.  Your thought processes are an on-going car wreck, gruesome but too fascinating to turn away from.
