Mr. Mister - Broken Wings

January 23, 2021

Hey, fellow radical leftists...

How are all y’all doing this first weekend under the radical leftist regime running America?

Why are we not all speaking Chinese yet?

Before you know it, we’ll all have a UBI and free healthcare and then we’ll all be doomed.

How do you say “Hail Satan” in Chinese?

Confession: I once used a lie to create my own reality

It was a relatively harmless lie, but I needed it because of the situation I was in.

Many years ago, I was working for a very horrible boss, think Kevin Spacey in “Swimming With Sharks” on steroids. In order to save my own sanity, I needed to get out of that toxic workspace.

So without any truth to back it up, I floated a rumor that I was going to get a transfer. Pretty much everybody I told this to knew that it wasn’t true and that I sounded downright delusional at the time.

Maybe it was wishful thinking, but I was desperate to get out from under that tyrant. Eventually word of my pending “transfer” got around to a guy who needed a replacement for himself, so he called me up and asked me if I was interested in taking his place. Of course, I said yes and his boss contacted my boss’s boss and I was out of there.

Needless to say, my friends that knew I was lying about some pending mythical “transfer” were amazed that I actually pulled this thing off.

That was the only time that I willfully lied about something that I knew that everybody else knew wasn’t true to get what I wanted.

But it actually worked out for me and I got a better job with a much better boss.

Now, although it did work to my advantage that one time, since I’m not pathological, there’s no way that I could lie all the time in order to get whatever I wanted. Years later, I’m still rationalizing that one lie, because I know that it wasn’t my proudest moment.

However, seeing Trump and his cult shamelessly lie about everything for the last four years only indicates to me the dire consequences that have been wrought by those lies. Mostly the millions upon millions of people who have internalized them. These people are going out of their way to lie themselves into a “reality” that can’t possibly exist.

Trump didn’t win the election.

There was no mass voter fraud.

Wednesday we saw these same people try take these lies and fabricate a second term for Trump. It was seditious domestic terrorist attack on American democracy. Trump’s lies have fractured the nation for his own benefit. He doesn’t care who will suffer and die because of lies. All he cares about is cheating and lying to win.

Those calling for forgiveness for Trump and “national unity” are really begging for immunity. Which is the most dangerous thing we can give to him and his seditious mob. These people failed once, but they haven’t given up their lies. They’re going to persist with them until they succeed. They’re planning more attacks as I write this.

Inaction is national suicide.

I know that the right lie to the right people will sometimes succeed, because I did that myself. It’s the thing that scares me the most about Trump’s lying. Anyone who cares about the future of this nation should feel the same.

We’re at a crossroads right now. What are we going to do?

I have to hand it to Trump... He never fucks down.

He only fucks up.

Fox is going out of its way to white wash Trump's GOPr enablers

As well as justifying the reasoning of the white supremacist insurrectionist domestic terrorists.

This right here is why I've always said that white supremacy is the biggest threat to America

Not only does it causes harm to our democracy, it hamstrings the response against that harm.

Consider today a wake up call.

White supremacy in America needs to be destroyed, otherwise we won’t have an America anymore.

At this point, I believe that it's our duty to save the Republican Party...

By beating the living shit out of Trump's cult and removing his enabler RINOs out of power.

The more Republicans we beat, the more the party needs to realize that it has to return to its core values. It's a proto-fascist gaggle of seditionists now, not a major political party.

We cut the head off the snake in the last presidential election.

Now let's work on the body. So many bad actors who have called themselves Republicans who need to lose their cushy jobs.

Republicans are depending on us to help them return to their senses.
