Measles is back. The outbreak of this highly contagious viral illness that started at Disneyland in December has spread across the country and shows no signs of slowing. As of February 6, the CDC reported 121 cases in 17 states in this year alone, most linked to Disneyland. In 2014, we had 644 cases of measles in the U.S. This is a striking increase compared to the last 15 years, when we usually saw less than 100 cases in an entire year.

measles 2015 CDCI’m sorry that so many people have been sickened in this outbreak and hope that it is reined in soon. This is no easy task given our mobile society and the fact that we like to congregate in places like Disneyland, schools, doctors’ offices, hospitals, airplanes, and shopping malls. Add to that the pockets of unvaccinated people where measles can easily spread, and we have a recipe…

The modern-day versions of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club reared their butt-ugly heads in response to yesterday’s post about the type of pro-rape a**holes that infest the anti-woman fringe. The needle-d***ed little boys who defended their rape-endorsing comrade said lots of tough-sounding things, in their own little safe zones such as “Feminism is a Hate Movement”:

But hey, you’re a liar.

This ever-so-incisive rebuttal focuses on yesterday’s a**hole du jour not being a “real” Men’s Rights Advocate, as if that were the point of the post. But hey, if he’s such a delusional nitwit as to support the claim that wanting equal rights = hate, we really can’t expect cogency.

Plus there’s this little bit of not-even-brave-enough-to-backstab mewling from “Buttsock” (his own handle, not mine):

One might at least expect someone who is so angry about a blog post to call the blogger out in the comments section of the offending blog. Nope. This bunch of cowering little wussies did their name-calling on their own widdle tumblr pages, being too skeeered to even comment to my digital face. What a bunch of whiny, wimpy, trembling little poltroons.

Really, anti-feminists, like all other anti-equality jackholes, are frightened little boys in men’s bodies. They use their big mouths to compensate for their undersized courage (and undersized cojones, at least metaphorically). Christ on a trailer hitch, what kind of pathetic milquetoast can’t even bring himself to send a digital comment to such an insignificant f***ing blog site as this one? (Let’s be honest, I love writing this blog, but it ain’t famous. Not even infamous.)

Clearly, the MRA wimps and their type are anti-woman because women terrify them. Maybe, if they didn’t have such a lack of testicular fortitude, they could show some guts and take the time to get to know some women, relate to them, understand them, and learn to respect thems. Women, after all, are the only reason any of us get born in the first place.

MRA a**wipes and those that defend their inhuman agendas need to wake up, nut up, wise up and step up. Instead of hiding in their scummy, slimy, loathesome little holes whining piteously amongst their cowardly selves about an anti-rape blog post.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Yet another mamma-threw-away-the-child-and-raised-the-afterbirth chucklef*** demonstrates why the “Men’s Rights Activists” are all a bunch of criminally insane loserboys. One Roosh Vörek wants to make rape legal. Don’t believe it? Here are his very own “thoughts”:

I thought about this problem and am sure I have the solution: make rape legal if done on private property. I propose that we make the violent taking of a woman not punishable by law when done off public grounds.

The exception for public rape is aimed at those seedy and deranged men who randomly select their rape victims on alleys and jogging trails, but not as a mechanism to prevent those rapes, since the verdict is still out if punishment stops a committed criminal mind, but to have a way to keep them off the streets. For all other rapes, however, especially if done in a dwelling or on private property, any and all rape that happens should be completely legal.

If rape becomes legal under my proposal, a girl will protect her body in the same manner that she protects her purse and smartphone. If rape becomes legal, a girl will not enter an impaired state of mind where she can’t resist being dragged off to a bedroom with a man who she is unsure of—she’ll scream, yell, or kick at his attempt while bystanders are still around. If rape becomes legal, she will never be unchaperoned with a man she doesn’t want to sleep with. After several months of advertising this law throughout the land, rape would be virtually eliminated on the first day it is applied.

Here, Gentle Reader, is the paragon of masculinity from whom those “ideas” spurted:

Yeah, looks like a misogynistic a**hole, doesn’t he? No wonder he wants rape to be legal.

A counterproposal, then, for the “blogger” Roosh V: you want legal rape? How about we say women can legally cut off your wedding tackle whenever they want. Yours and that of any other rapist, sex criminal, MRA, or other mouthbreathing toilet stains who think they have a right to rape women.

Oh, you don’t like that idea, Mr. Vörek? Funny how that works.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Both groups want to murder millions of infidels so as to bring about the end of the world. Both groups cherry-pick their respective Scriptures to justify the evil acts they perpetrate upon others. Both are run by malevolent geniuses who are followed by  hateful, gullible, violent f***wits with room-temperature IQs. And both have useful idiots in the media who try to paint them as something other than what they are.

Let’s start with ISIS, (and let’s call them “Daesh”, because it is accurate, and because they hate being called by that name).
Here is an excellent article on them, worth the click. Pretty long piece, so here are a very few snippets:

The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior. Its rise to power is less like the triumph of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (a group whose leaders the Islamic State considers apostates) than like the realization of a dystopian alternate reality in which David Koresh or Jim Jones survived to wield absolute power over not just a few hundred people, but some 8 million.
Following takfiri doctrine, the Islamic State is committed to purifying the world by killing vast numbers of people. The lack of objective reporting from its territory makes the true extent of the slaughter unknowable, but social-media posts from the region suggest that individual executions happen more or less continually, and mass executions every few weeks.

Pretty gruesome, you’ll agree. But not all that different from various “Christian” Millenialist groups (we’ll call them “Teavangelicals”, because it is likewise accurate, and they also hate being called by that name).

Teavangelicals think they should rule the world as a theocracy. Just as Daesh does:

Kingdom Now theology states that althoughSatan has been in control of the world since the Fall, God is looking for people who will help him take back dominion. Those who yield themselves to the authority of God’s apostles and prophets will take control of the kingdoms of this world, being defined as all social institutions, the “kingdom” of education, the “kingdom” of science, the “kingdom” of the arts, etc.

Teavangelicals want to re-enslave people (Women, people of color, etc). Again, Daesh also believes in slavery. Check out this quote from a Fundie:

I’m not going to sugarcoat this article in an attempt not to offend anyone. Feminism is rebellion against God’s AUTHORITY! I don’t know where the term “feminazi” originated, but it accurately describes the Feminist Movement. So many pastors today are afraid to preach against the evils of feminism. The truth needs to be told!
America’s churches, marriages and homes are being destroyed by the vile feminist agenda. Women are now filing for divorce atTWICE the rate of men because of feminism. A godly man is a threat to the feminist’s agenda, because he believes that a woman’s place is still in the home—baking cookies, knitting, and caring for the children (1st Timothy 5:14). Of course, hen pecked husbands and sissies are exempt.

That’s what Teavangelicals say about women. As to POC? Here you go, straight from the horse’s ass mouth:

Collier also said that he and his followers believe that whites are “God’s chosen people.” While he denies that racism is at the heart of the event, he admits that some members and attendees are Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members (but membership in the Klan isn’t a requirement).

And this little bon mot:

WE BELIEVE the White, Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and kindred people to be God’s true, literal Children of Israel. Only this race fulfills every detail of Biblical Prophecy and World History concerning Israel and continues in these latter days to be heirs and possessors of the Covenants, Prophecies, Promises and Blessings YHVH God made to Israel. This chosen seedline making up the “Christian Nations” (Gen. 35:11; Isa. 62:2; Acts 11:26) of the earth stands far superior to all other peoples in their call as God’s servant race (Isa. 41:8, 44:21; Luke 1:54). Only these descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel scattered abroad (James 1:1; Deut. 4:27; Jer. 31:10; John 11:52) have carried God’s Word, the Bible, throughout the world (Gen. 28:14; Isa. 43:10-12, 59:21), have used His Laws in the establishment of their civil governments and are the “Christians” opposed by the Satanic Anti-Christ forces of this world who do not recognize the true and living God (John 5:23, 8:19, 16:2-3).

And are Teavangelicals violent like Daesh? Yep. Click here to get acquainted with the many “Christians” who behead, rape, bomb, torture and assassinate anyone their diseased “brains” tell them to. Here and abroad.

This writer certainly has no love for Daesh. They are lunatic mass-murderers, among other disgusting characteristics. We cannot, however, pretend that they are any different than the Teavangelicals. We have at least as big a problem with the supposed “followers” of Rebbe Yeshua bar Joseph as we do with those who pervert the teachings of Mohammed (peace be on him).

Any Christian who wants to pretend otherwise should remember this little quote from their professed Lord and Savior in Matthew 7:

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

All terrorists are evil. All of them, regardless of motivation or religion. Look at them with clear eyes, and you’ll see it.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

We hear it all the time: no matter the issue, be it climate change, contraception, or even basic mathematics, far too many Politicos act as though their “faith” somehow equates to facts. Bull-f***ing-s***.

All the faith in the world does not make the Pill an abortion-inducing drug. It isn’t, and there is good science to prove that it isn’t. All the misapplied scriptural citations do not make climate change a hoax: again, science proves it isn’t.

And all the voodoo in America cannot make supply-side economics valid. It isn’t, wasn’t, and won’t be. All the data says it doesn’t f***ing work.

The Establishment Clause specifically rules out religion in our government. Period. So using “faith” as a policy tool isn’t just idiotic: it’s illegal.

So let’s make the penalty for the crime be de-election. Kick those fools out of their cushy jobs and let ‘em try that faith scam in the real world once or twice. See how their “faith” is rewarded.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

(Note: Faith is a wonderful thing when used where appropriate. Church, for instance.)

The Blunt and Crankies are on our way home from a vacation with wonderful friends in warm, sunny places. As we stopped for the night in Whereverthehell Kentucky, she wrapped a scarf around her head because, well, it’s f***ing cold outside. Looked a bit like a hijab, but who cares when you’ve come from the Florida coast to Freezerville in 36 hours, right?

Wrong. The woman who was misguided enough to marry your humble correspondent is of Irish/Shawnee/Syrian descent, and is frequently taken as a local in whatever country or region in which we are at a given moment. Be it in Central America, Scotland, on a Reservation or so on, people associate her with their ethnic preconceptions. So, when the locals saw her with the scarf wrapped tightly around her head, they projected their image of a Middle Eastern woman upon her. Disturbingly.

Women looked at her with a condescending mixture of pity and disdain. They looked at me as if I were a wife-abusing terrorist. Men looked at us like we were both worthy of being shot by Chris f***ing Kyle.

All because a white woman was chilly and covered her head.

America, you are SO f***ing f***ed. Surprised nobody shot us based on their idiotic, bigoted, stupid-assed ideas.

Je suis Chapel Hill.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Sounds like a reach, but trust your Uncle Crankster, they are dancing on the poor woman’s grave. Teapubbie toerag “writer” Debbie Schlussel is a perfect example. With this post, entitled “Kayla Mueller: Dead ISIS Hostage Was Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel Bitch”. This asshole Schlussel wrote the following:

No tears for the newly-departed Kayla Mueller, the ISIS hostage whose parents confirmed today that she is dead. Mueller was a Jew-hating, anti-Israel piece of crap who worked with HAMAS and helped Palestinians harass Israeli soldiers and block them from doing their job of keeping Islamic terrorists out of Israel. She also worked to prevent Israel from tearing down terrorists’ “houses,” which the Palestinian terrorists used to smuggle weapons from and to HAMAS in order to perpetrate terrorist attacks. And she wrote several lying, anti-Israel blog posts.

As I noted last week and many other times on this site, I have no sympathy for any of these “American” (in name only!) hostages of ISIS. And my attitude when I hear they’ve been snuffed out is, so sad, too bad. Every single one of these hostages has been a leftist America-hater. They are anti-American “journalists” there to tell us how “moderate” and “democratic” these beheaders and live-human-burners are. Or they are anti-American “aid workers” (that’s like the Middle East version of Barack Obama’s “community organizer”).

And then the heartless, despicable wretch finishes her “post” with this:

When people ask me what I think of Kayla Mueller, I’ll say, I think she’s incinerated.

Buh-bye, Kayla. Have fun with your 72 Yasser Arafats.

Got it, Gentle Reader? Anytime somebody wonders why this blog excoriates “Republicans”, remember the reigning asshole Debbie Schlossel and her sociopathic and tacitly pro-terrorism screed.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

And Justice Roy More sex with goatsore is the biggest pro-goat-f***er in the entire state. You see, for all his anti-marriage-equality rhetoric, Justice More sex with goatsore hasn’t said, well, a f***ing thing about his state’s pro-bestiality laws. Seems he likes it to to be legal to molest livestock and family pets, does it not?

By contrast, Mr. More sex with goatsore hates himself some marriage equality. The only logical conclusion to draw is that Alabama, having elected an anti-gay, pro-bestiality Chief Justice, supports sex with animals over sex with humans.

Of course, this conclusion could be disproven, by different behavior among Alabama voters. Unlikely, but possible. Meanwhile, all heterosexual animal abusers (who are rightly considered criminals in many other parts of the country) are warmly welcomed in the state. Unlike law-abiding gay people.

That, Gentle Reader, is totally f***ed. F***ed like Justice Roy Moore’s favorite goat.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Think about it for a moment: what does every business need? They need customers. What is a business without customers? Closed. So how do we create jobs?

We create jobs by giving customers the wherewithal to purchase goods and services.

We do NOT create jobs by beggaring the middle and working classes. We do NOT create jobs by throwing billions of dollars in taxpayer funds at wealthy layabout 1-percenters as Teapublicans keep doing.

It’s time we went back to our pre-1980 policies of spreading our wealth more evenly across all of America’s economy instead of redistributing it upwards.

That, if you like, will create jobs. By empowering the real job creators: consumers.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Given recent policy proposals and votes, it is the only reasonable conclusion. The Teapubbies, for all their alleged “pro-life” stances, are aggressively pushing for regulatory changes that will result in sickness at best, and death at worst.

Example Number A: GOPee Senator Thom Tillis thinks it’s OK for the people who cook your food to have urine and feces on their hands. Really:

“And at that time we were sitting back at a table that was near the restrooms and one of the employees just came out. She said: ‘For example, don’t you believe that this regulation that requires this gentleman to wash his hands before he serves your food is important and should be on the books?’”

“I said: ‘As a matter of fact, I think it’s one that I can [use to] illustrate the point,’” he remarked. “I said: ‘I don’t have any problem with Starbucks if they choose to opt out of this policy as long as they post a sign that says “We don’t require our employees to wash their hands after leaving the restroom,”’” he recalled, as the audience chuckled. “The market will take care of that.’”

This even though the evidence has long shown the importance of sanitation:

A March 2012 Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention study of over 400 restaurants throughout the US found that “12 percent of food workers said they had worked when they were sick with vomiting or diarrhea.” The ill workers turned up to work, the CDC found, because of “pressure to do so,” and, possibly, due to a “need for income.”

Example Letter 2: The “Republican” party is full of anti-vaxxers, and as all non-idiot people know, vaccines are good things that save a s***load of lives. Another case of Teapubbies encouraging death and illness.

Thirdly: Repubs want to steal your health insurance; indeed, they have been trying to do it for years. This in spite of the manifold benefits to individuals and the overall economy.

The common element among all these examples is: Teapubbies take pro-death and pro-illness positions time after time, from encouraging environmental contamination to making sure people die by denying medical care. The GOPee loves death and sickness.
