A major advantage of having a Twitter pal like the wonderful Lalo Alcaraz (@LaloAlcaraz) is that he generously shares his work with us.
In his comic strip today, Lalo zeroed in on the all too prevalent Republican ignorance and Islamophobic tendencies.
Yes, to Gohmert, Hispanics are really Muslims in disguise, and burritos should be placed on terrorist watch lists.
In one Pennsylvania elementary school, 5-year-old girls in kindergarten who suggest it might be fun to blast bubbles at other 5-year-olds using a small, pink, plastic Hello Kitty bubble blower get suspended.
And that suspension makes it impossible to be accepted into other schools. Because, see, toy bubble-shooters are now evil threatening weapons and tots who want to not-harm other children with a not-harmful, painless, floaty stream of bubbles are now “terrorists.”
Bubbles don’t kill people, people kill people.
A 5-year-old girl was suspended from school earlier this week after she made what the school called a “terrorist threat.“
Her weapon of choice? A small, Hello Kitty automatic bubble blower.
Did I mention that the child didn’t even have the bubbler with her at school?
Did I mention her weapon of choice was a doodad that blows bubbles?
Did I mention that the 5-year-old was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation?
Guess what the outcome of the evaluation was? You guessed right. The little girl was “deemed normal” and not a threat. Imagine that! She’s as harmless as a little (Hello) Kitty.
But now she’s got a “record” and has been turned down by another school because of her scary terrorist past. Before you know it, there will be drones tracking her and she’ll be on a watch list.
Why, soon there could be a Baby Gitmo at every neighborhood mall (So convenient!) where moms ‘n’ dads can shop to their hearts’ content after paying a visit to their Little Prisoner.
Hey, remember when Sarah Palin accused President Obama of “pallin’ around with terrorists”? Me too!
So what exactly is Paul Ryan doing?
But seriously, what’s really disturbing is who these people at the Values Voter Summit really are and what they’re peddling. Watch the video and then tell me why Romney and Ryan think pallin’ around with these dangerous “right wing conspiracy theorist wing nuts” could be “their way to the White House.” Because they clearly believe that this is…
Relevant segment at about 1:02:
When Newt Gingrich arrived in Paris last week to speak to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an Iranian exile umbrella group that’s been based there since shortly after the 1979 revolution, he seemed to know exactly who Maryam Rajavi is. He praised Rajavi and her work several times in his speech, which he delivered as the prominent exile stood at his side. … [H]e turned to face Rajavi, smiled, and … folded at the waist and bowed solemnly. Rajavi, clothed head-to-toe in green, handed him a bouquet of flowers as the crowd cheered…
[S]he’s better known as the “principal leader” of Mujahadeen-e-Khalq or MEK, which is officially designated by the United States as a terrorist group.
That video is just a little payback for these breathless moments of outrage:
President Barack Obama “bows” and “scrapes” to America’s Chinese “enemy,” House Science Committee Chairman Ralph Hall said Wednesday.
“He has bowed to foreign dictators”— Mitt Romney, Dec. 7, 2011… Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom said that “the term ‘bowed to foreign dictators’ is metaphorical but the leaders Obama literally bowed to were the Saudi King, Emperor of Japan, and Chinese President Hu Jintao.” [Follow the link for the usual debunking of the usual lunacy.]
Worth noting, none of those were leaders of terrorist groups.
