High School Shooting: The Aftermath

I feel like I can go back to the last mass shooting and cut and paste. With 17 dead (so far), the “day after” talk surrounding yesterday’s shooting is all too predictable.

We learn about heroes:

We learn details:

And graphic video [WARNING] —

And more about the killer, like he was adopted at birth by a kindly older couple…. and:

He had been getting treatment at a mental health clinic, but he had stopped. He had been expelled from school for disciplinary problems. Many of his acquaintances had cut ties in part because of his unnerving Instagram posts and reports that he liked shooting animals. His father died a few years ago, and his mother, among the only people with whom he was close, died around Thanksgiving. He was living at a friend’s house. He was showing signs of depression.

And the finger-pointing starts.  The left and reasonable rightly say this is an issue of gun control.  Why?  Because this doesn’t happen in other countries.  Other countries have mentally disturbed people.  Other countries have terrorists.  But other countries make it hard — or near impossible — to get a weapon of mass destruction, like the AR-15 used in so many mass shootings.  It is easier to get one of those than it is to get a driver’s license.

And the right — they are playing defense. Some are saying we need armed police in schools — except Stoneman Douglas High School had one.  He didn’t see or hear anything until the shooting started.

And it looks like the right has picked out, among others, their fall guy — their favorite punching bag of this administration, the FBI.  It comes from Buzzfeed, which reports this:

Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. “I’m going to be a professional school shooter,” said a user named Nikolas Cruz.

The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment and calling the bureau’s Mississippi field office. He also flagged the comment to YouTube, which removed it from the video.

Agents with the bureau’s Mississippi field office got back to him “immediately,” Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25.

“They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person,” Bennight told BuzzFeed News. “I didn’t. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them.”

And the President weighed in this morning with this:

And that prompted none other than Donald Trump Jr to like a tweet criticizing the FBI:

So clearly, the fault lies with the FBI and the people who failed to report him.

Trump’s tweet, I am happy say, is not enjoying as many “likes” as he usually gets. A tweet about DACA sent out at the same time got twice as many likes.

As for others on the right, they urge caution

In any event, the left is once again raising the issue about how our GOP politicians are beholden to the NRA, including Trump himself.

Here’s what the NRA posted on Instagram on Valentine’s Day, just hours before the shooting. It has not been taken down:

… and in two days, we will have moved on.

UPDATE:

This changes things. He was a domestic terrorist (in my eyes), having trained with a white supremacist group.

The group is known as the Republic of Florida. Here is their website (although I suspect it will be taken down soon). They claim no involvement in the shooting.  From their FAQ page (spelling errors are theirs):

What is your organization about? What does it do? 

We are a white civil rights organization fighting for white identitarian politics, And the ultimate creation of a white ethnostate so we can be free from anti-white policies and have policies that reflect our values as white westerners.

Our current short-term goals are to occupy urban areas to recruit suburban young whites, Then to “Withdrawal” into majority white urban areas to create communes, While maintaining a permanent small presence.

Long term, Our towns will become our ethnostates. Were not going to ask permission from the estableshemnt to have our territorial imparrative!

Are you a hate group? Do you hate minorities? 

Considering we are minorities ourselves statistically in most cases, No we do not hate minorities.  Noting the spirit of the question, No. We don’t hate people who are not white. We have done business with many people who are not white and work with people who are nonwhite in our communities toward our ultimate goals. Ironically, Black people are very often a lot more accepting of our beliefs than white liberals. 

How would you summarize your outlook on history? 

ROFHARDTIMES

History is filled with conquest and struggle. If we come out on top of that struggle, We need to fell guilty about it.

Republic Of Florida is a Militia?

Republic Of Florida is an organization that has a militia, Just as the United States is a nation with an army. Not everyone in the ROF is required to be part of paramilitary training, However, Everyone is encouraged to arm themselves.

Republic Of Florida is to United States Of America

ROF Militia is to US Army.

Thinking of “ROF Militia” And “Republic Of Florida” As the same thing, is erroneous.

How can I get an ROF Flag?

First, Lets show you a picture of what an actual ROF Flag looks like:

18301914_788983211264458_4462239141851966317_n.jpg

This is not to be confused with the Bonnie Blue, Which a flag that virtually every secessionist, And less-dedicated ROF members, Are sure to own.

Owning an authentic ROF flag is a sign of an extremely loyal member of an ROF cell; The reason being is they require dedication and sacrifice simply to produce them, Which means they were obtained for either 2 reasons:

  1. They made the ROF flag with knowledge on how to make them, And with financial willingness to spend the money required to make them.
  2. Were given the ROF flag by someone else who footed the bill, As a reward for that members dedication.

A genuine ROF Flag is very expensive to produce and made to rugged specifications. There is no website you go to to buy an ROF flag. There is however methods of creating them that you can learn if you are part of ROF, Or are creating an ROF cell. Several private companies have assisted us in the creation of our flags, Which are made out of the finest of thick yet light, Durable poly-cotton materials. ROF Flags

So if you want an ROF flag, You either have to know how to make it, Or be given one, Which is a major honor.

What does the ROF Flag Represent?

The white field represents purity/the white race, The St. Andrews cross is a symbol of our ancestors and the symbol of the cross of Burgundy used in the FL state flag, Which is part of Florida’s rich heritage. The blue represents the oceans surrounding our state, The righteousness of our cause, and a government that cares about the health and well being of the people.  The white star represents our independence and our freedom.

It should be noted that different ROF flags carry different meanings.

Does ROF do anything positive in the community?

During hurricane IRMA, We passed out free water and food while Amazon.com charged +20$ for bottled water. The store shelves were EMPTY. We passed out these supplies to all colors and creeds, Albeit in a majority white area. 

20170908_194542

We do numerous positive non-partisan activities that help our communities:

The ROF Militia is on the front lines during hurricanes and natural disasters making sure people are properly cared for in the aftermath, And helping preparations before the storm.

We pass out water in the hottest days of the year, And educate people on the importance of hydration

We patrol the streets at night to combat crime- This mostly involves observing and reporting to local authorities, Unless we witness forcible felonies of certain types where we feel intervention is necessary to prevent great bodily injury or loss of life, or if children or elderly are in danger.

Can a nonwhite join ROF?

In theory, Yes. Ask your local company captain/Cell coordinator if he will allow it. This wont give you a free pass to race mix, And you would be fighting for segregated communities for racial self-determination. If this sounds like you- Then Join ROF; Regardless of what your racial background is.

Are you a Christian Organization?

Technically, Per amendments to the late 1990’s conventions, We are a Christian Organization that makes an exception for a few Odinists. Now in 2017 almost half of ROF is Odinists. If following ROF doctrine to exact spec from the late 1990’s/Early 2000’s, No other organizations are allowed. But no religious belief is outlawed by the 10 codes as of 2017.

Is Islam Compatible with ROF?

No. Islam is not a religion in the traditional sense, It is closer to a military doctrine than a religion, And its values are counter-intuitive to the belief systems of ROF. Islam is a serious threat to western civilization And an enemy of ROF and the Floridian people.

Are the uniforms US Army uniforms?

This is usually a loaded question asked by a childish person whom is attempting to accuse us of “Stolen Valor”. Its a “Power play”, Among many, that helpless childish nihilists use when they have no argument and when they are unable to stop us from operating. Needless to say in 2017, Almost none of our uniforms look that much like US Amry uniforms, And are easily identifiable as ROF uniforms.

7560

None of the well known ROF companies in North Florida use multicam as of late 2017.

Our pre-2017 uniforms are not, And never were, “Stolen valor” The were purchased from private companies. And if they ever were US Army uniforms, They ceased to be US Army Uniforms the moment we took the American Flag patches off and replaced them with ROF patches. We actually wore the multicam camoflage pattern before the US Army Adopted OCP, Which is their version of Multicam. Technically in a strange way that isn’t worth arguing about, The US Army is “Stealing our valor”, Which is very very Ironic considering people accuse ROF of “Stealing Valor”. Tactical Uniforms/Equipment are tools. They are not substitutes for courage, They are not playtoys. They are tools of utility and concealment.

Stolen valor is the impersonation of a military unit. We are not impersonating the ROF, We are the ROF.

Don’t you find your goals to be a bit absurd and Impossible? Aren’t you traitors to America? 

Culteral marxism was looked at as “Absured” 40 years ago, But is the law of the land in US politics today.

History is filled with groups like the ROF who were laughed at in the early days. There was a time when the idea of the the colonies becoming the United States (Which really wasn’t supposed to be one country by the way, It was supposed to be a union of nation states) Seemed crazy, And seemed like total treason against the British government. Now we celebrate this “treason” and call it patriotism every 4th of July.  Yet for us having this exact same mindset, And wanting to be truly free and have taxation with representation, Just as the founding fathers of the actual U.S. did, We get called traitors. You people calling us traitors must be the ancestors of the redcoats and loyalists of that time.

I heard X about your organization, And the X Organization/Individual said this about your organization.

A wise man believes none of what he hears and half of what he sees.

99% Of people who talk about ROF, media or not, Are simply not qualified to talk about ROF. There are even people in ROF who are not necessarily qualified. If it did not come from ROF doctrine, Then it doesn’t represent the belief systems of ROF. People outside of ROF do not get to decide on our behalf what our organization is about. That isn’t how this works.

Why are your members taking over hotel buildings and meeting with government officials?

Please understand that anybody can start a blog and start throwing out random “Facts” about ROF, About how we are having a “Right Wing Bilderberg”, About how our female members are somehow sex slaves that have no rights bla bla bla.

You have female members? Are they considered equals?

They are considered equally important, But we do not pretend that women are the same as men. Women are biologically different, And thus usually are committed to tasks that are different within ROF. We teach them defensive tactics rather than offensive ones. Women shouldn’t be on the front lines of combat. Women simply are not built for combat. You can use a shovel as a hammer, But its still the wrong tool for the job- Likewise, we biologically are suited toward different jobs.  The social engineers and feminists, Who by the way are miserable young gals with absolutely no direction in their life, find that gender roles are part of some oppressive patriarchal conspiracy to oppress women. The reality is men and women love eachother and work with eachother and raise families together. If that is a conspiracy it is one we are glad to be a part of.

Seems like a lot more men than women.

We have almost 4 women per every 10 men. A little under 40% of our membership is female. That is almost unheard of in right wing political organizations. Our male to female ratio very often surpasses the left wing groups.

Do ROF’s do drugs?

Those whom are in ROF Cells, Or living an ROF lifestyle, Are permitted from the recreational use of drugs. 10 codes, Code #4 says:
I will not poison myself with the misuse of chemical substances. Chemical substances have their place, But they should only be used medicinally. Drug abuse is the number one obstacle to the recruiting of the young in our society.

The definition of “Medicinal use” is a subject of fierce debate. Some ROF’s claim marijuana is a good treatment for stress and headaches. It also is a subject of debate where alcohol falls into this code.

Are you guys violent?

The short answer: Yes. 

Marxists

Many of us are involved in paramilitary training, and we are well aware of FL Statutes 776. We will stand our ground against all who attack us. Those who attack us better know what they are doing.  If your a military aged man and we believe you can cause us great bodily harm, We will do everything in our power to make you no longer be a threat, Which will probably involve us killing or hospitalizing you. Best bet is to fight us with your words if you disagree with us. But if you want to get violent and put your hands on us, That works in our favor. We can always use practice.

We will use all tools at our disposal to advance our objectives, But our first priority is to exercise what rights we have under the law.

What if a member of the press wants to contact you?

We have a 24 Hour Hotline 561-463-2713 

RROFrecruiter@Gmail.com – The same for as for recruitment inquiries. We have a lot of press organizations contacting us, And we reserve the right to deny any press organization an interview.

We did have a facebook page before Facebook decided that our advocating our own right to exist and have a territorial imperative was forbidden thought.

Do you support Trump?

We do not have any desire to be part of the United States, And want our own country, And do not support the federal government running our affairs, So we are unwilling to enter into a discussion on if we “Support” Trump, Because we don’t support the government he is in charge of.

Isn’t Jordan Jereb a crazy nutball? How the hell is he the leader of ROF?

Its quite simple; Jereb is not the leader of ROF. He is the leader of a single cell of ROF, A cell that has become successful and popular, And through Jereb’s knowledge of community organizing, Multimedia, The internet, Has created the most visible ROF related activity on the internet. There are many ROF cells that do not advertise themselves on the internet, Some actually hate Jereb, Some even believe Jereb is a provocateur who has ruined ROF. People who say “Jereb is the leader of ROF.” Simply have not done their research.

This will be updated as more frequently asked questions are asked. 

She Seems Nice

Trump voter going on a tirade

This incident is the just the latest in a recent spate of obscene and racist tirades by Trump supporters. Last week a Trump fan abused black employees of a Miami Starbucks and over the weekend a viral video showed a Delta Airlines passenger screaming about “Hillary bitches.” Yesterday Delta apologized for not removing the man. Also this weekend a Colorado home supply store fired its manager for calling a customer a “faggot who voted for Hillary.”

Fourth of July Flashback

At around 50 seconds into the video, the four-year old on my shoulder starts singing a patriotic song that she made up.

Something about “America” and how the fireworks appear every day and every night….

An Apology Was What Was Called For

First, the video that went viral and started it all….

The Mac & Cheese Kid, as he has known, apologized by video.  Critics were, and are, saying that he is still a smug arrogant brat and/or is not acknowledging his alcohol problem.  I hear all that and don’t necessarily disagree, but I don’t think that is relevant.  An apology was appropriate (some people in this world can’t even muster that) so let’s acknowledge that he made one before we snark, okay?

His Parents Must Be So Proud

I’m not a fan of the public shaming of private people, but this is going viral.  And with good reason.

A drunk kid from the University of Connecticut staged a coup for some bacon jalapeño mac & cheese, and inadvertently revealed himself to be the worst person ever. He came to the university dining hall really drunk, in search of that spicy porky mac. He was asked to leave by the management because he was 1) really drunk, 2) drinking in a place where you’re not allowed to drink, and 3) underage drinking. He refused to leave without his mac & cheese, at which point someone began filming his altercation with the management.

After repeatedly yelling, getting physical multiple times, and calling the manager a “retard” and a “fag”, this guy—

screen-shot-2015-10-06-at-113349-am-YMN7LS

—a restaurant employee we’ll call “Chill Beret Guy” decided that enough was enough. After the kid pushed the manager again, Chill Beret Guy took him down and held him until the cops arrived and took him away.

When the video was posted, it wasn’t too hard to find out who he was. His name is Luke V. Gatti. He’s a 19-year-old from Long Island, and after a cursory glance through his Facebook, it appears that he really likes to ski. That’s not why it was easy to find him, though; he has already been arrested twice for similar drunk-entitled-college-kid incidents. He was first arrested about a year ago at a house party on disorderly conduct charges, which involved him calling a police officer the n-word. His second arrest occurred two weeks later, when he assaulted a police officer. At his hearing, the judge told Gatti that he was “a little concerned” he would “pull a trifecta before the month is over.”

It took him a bit longer than a month, but he did indeed pull off a trifecta. As Chill Beret Guy held him down, Gatti started trying to play the victim and said, “If I get arrested again, I’m f*cked,” to which Chill Beret guy had the perfect response…

“Well then you’re f*cked.”

I know nine minutes is a lifetime in the Internet world, but…. watch it.  It’s fun. (Strong language though)

Miss Utah Crowned As New Youtube Babbling Pageant Contestant

It’s been six years, but the memory of Miss South Carolina Teen USA contestant Caite Upton tackling a pretty straightforward question about the geographical ignorance of our fellow Americans with words fished out of the garbage disposal is as fresh as ever: “People in our nation don’t have maps, The Iraq, like, everywhere such as, something something schools in the U.S. should help South Africa and The Iraq and all of those Asian countries, such as."

In the Miss USA pageant last night, Miss Utah – Marissa Powell – struggled to respond with her thoughts on the question, “A recent report shows that in 40 percent of American families with children, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than men. What does it say about society?”

Not as cringe-worthy as Miss South Carolina, but her response was still worth a hearty, "WTF?!?!?"

 

I stand by her call for better education, if that was indeed her point.  Ms. Powell, BTW, is a singer, model and actress who attended Brigham Young University.

Oh, she came in third, which shows how much the Miss USA pageant places a premium on brains.

Wild Videos

The train derailment and explosion yesterday in Baltimore (wait until the end of the video):

 

Shot two days ago in Kansas, this is what it looks like INSIDE a tornado:

 

This Week’s Viral Video Is A Bit Of Social Activism

The subject? Lookism.

4.2 million hits in two days.

 

But let's be fair.  A&F aren't complete douches:

Late on Wednesday, American retailer Abercrombie & Fitch announced it would sign a safety upgrade plan that has been signed by six major European retailers and one other American company, PVH, owner of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Izod. The agreement, which is legally binding, includes independent factory inspections and requires companies to help underwrite building upgrades and repairs.

Many other American retailers have yet to sign on, including Walmart and Gap. Gap has voiced concerns that the plan could be used to sue it in American courts and Walmart objected to governance and dispute resolution mechanisms. Walmart announced on Wednesday that it would instead use its own voluntary plan that includes inspecting all of its Bangladesh facilities and providing fire safety training to workers. Gap also sent a letter to employees at its headquarters saying that it has hired a fire inspector to examine factories in Bangladesh and will commit $22 million in loans to factories to make upgrades.

 

Obama Kills

 

Here are ten favorites:

1. On President Obama’s college drug use: President Obama got in a double jab at the changing media landscape and himself when he mused that “I remember when BuzzFeed was just something I did in college around 2AM.” 

2. On CNN: CNN’s offered up some serious softballs this week, and both President Obama and O’Brien teed up on them. “I admire their commitment to cover all sides of a story, just in case one of them happens to be accurate,” Obama said of the network. And O’Brien, who noted that he’s from Boston towards the end of his speech, recalled watching MSNBC and seeing “Chuck Todd stopped a pundit from speculating on unverified information. There’s no joke here. I’m just letting CNN know you can do that.”

3. Steven Spielberg’s Obama: It helps to pull this kind of spoof off when you can call in almost anyone you want from Hollywood to work with you, but the joke was still executed strongly. “Who is Obama? I mean, we never got his transcripts nd they say he’s kind of aloof,” Spielberg joked for the video. Obama played Daniel Day Lewis playing him, explaining “The cosmetics are challenging. You wouldn’t believe how long it took to put these ears on.” And maybe best of all was an appearance by Tracy Morgan that provided the best joke about the Vice President of the evening, and the best reference-to-30 Rock joke, when Morgan credited Day-Lewis with his success when Morgan said “Without him I never could have played Joe Biden. Literally.” 

4. On Wayne LaPierre: One of O’Brien’s strongest jokes, particularly for the way it riffed on conservative fantasies of gun use. “Everything you ate tonight was personally shot by Wayne LaPierre,” he told the crowd. “Don’t worry, it was during a home invasion, though. The fish came in through the window. That wasn’t peppercorn. That was buckshot.”

5. Conservative anxieties about hip-hop: Walking in to “All I Do Is Win,” President Obama joked “Rush Limbaugh warned you about this. Second term, baby. We’re changing things around here a little bit.” And later, talking about Jay-Z and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba and rumors that the Obama administration facilitated it in some way, he mock-complained: “I’ve got 99 problems, and now Jay-Z’s one. That’s another rap reference, Bill.” 

6. On Sheldon Adelson and independent expenditures: In another twofer, Obama got at both the futility of independent expenditures in the 2012 election—and at his wife’s skepticism of life in the White House. “You could buy an island and calling it Nobama for that kind of money,” he said. “Sheldon would have been better off offering me $100 million to drop out of the race. I probably wouldn’t have taken it. But I would have thought about it. Michelle would have taken it. You think I’m joking.” Of course he’s not, though. And who can blame her?

7. On Bob Woodward: This was extreme inside baseball even for a dinner that’s the very definition of Washington insiderism. But it was still funny to hear O’Brien crack on Bob Woodward, who threw a temper tantrum earlier this year in claiming that the Obama administration threatened him, when really his correspondent was offering him some gently-worded advice. “Earlier, a waiter asked Woodward if he wanted regular or decaf and he said ‘Stop threatening me!’” O’Brien joked. 

8. On Kamala Harris: While President Obama spent a lot of his routine playing with paranoid assumptions about him, one area where he actually made an error that he needed to acknowledge was in his compliments of California Attorney General Kamala Harris based on her looks. Obama tried to make light of it, saying “As you might imagine, I got trouble when I got back home. Who knew Eric Holder was so sensitive?” But O’Brien did him one better in showing how ridiculous Obama’s remarks would be if they were applied to man, sighing over “That stone fox, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. I like the cut of his jib.”

9. Skeet shooting: President Obama’s team has an eye for things that will go viral, and they must have had a lot of fun compiling this image of their boss shooting skeet from on top of the GoDaddy racecar, accompanied by an eagle and backgrounded by a rainbow.

10. On Taylor Swift: Sure, it’s cheap at this point. But Obama was right about the politics of the sequester, at least, when he said “Republicans fell in love with this thing and now they can’t stop talking about how much they hate it. It’s like we’re trapped in a Taylor Swift album.” 

The Insane Sorority Girl Letter… Read By Michael Shannon

If you've been under a rock the past few days, the latest Internet meme is an actual letter written by a Delta Gamma sorority girl to her sisters.  It demands to be printed in full:

If you just opened this like I told you to, tie yourself down to whatever chair you’re sitting in, because this email is going to be a rough fucking ride.

For those of you that have your heads stuck under rocks, which apparently is the majority of this chapter, we have been FUCKING UP in terms of night time events and general social interactions with Sigma Nu. I’ve been getting texts on texts about people LITERALLY being so fucking AWKWARD and so fucking BORING. If you’re reading this right now and saying to yourself “But oh em gee Julia, I’ve been having so much fun with my sisters this week!”, then punch yourself in the face right now so that I don’t have to fucking find you on campus to do it myself.

I do not give a flying fuck, and Sigma Nu does not give a flying fuck, about how much you fucking love to talk to your sisters. You have 361 days out of the fucking year to talk to sisters, and this week is NOT, I fucking repeat NOT ONE OF THEM. This week is about fostering relationships in the greek community, and that’s not fucking possible if you’re going to stand around and talk to each other and not our matchup. Newsflash you stupid cocks: FRATS DON’T LIKE BORING SORORITIES. Oh wait, DOUBLE FUCKING NEWSFLASH: SIGMA NU IS NOT GOING TO WANT TO HANG OUT WITH US IF WE FUCKING SUCK, which by the way in case you’re an idiot and need it spelled out for you, WE FUCKING SUCK SO FAR. This also applies to you little shits that have talked openly about post gaming at a different frat IN FRONT OF SIGMA NU BROTHERS. Are you people fucking retarded? That’s not a rhetorical question, I LITERALLY want you to email me back telling me if you’re mentally slow so I can make sure you don’t go to anymore night time events. If Sigma Nu openly said “Yeah we’re gonna invite Zeta over”, would you be happy? WOULD YOU? No you wouldn’t, so WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU DO IT TO THEM?? IN FRONT OF THEM?!! First of all, you SHOULDN’T be post gaming at other frats, I don’t give a FUCK if your boyfriend is in it, if your brother is in it, or if your entire family is in that frat. YOU DON’T GO. YOU. DON’T. GO. And you ESPECIALLY do fucking NOT convince other girls to leave with you.

“But Julia!”, you say in a whiny little bitch voice to your computer screen as you read this email, “I’ve been cheering on our teams at all the sports, doesn’t that count for something?” NO YOU STUPID FUCKING ASS HATS, IT FUCKING DOESN’T. DO YOU WANNA KNOW FUCKING WHY?!! IT DOESN’T COUNT BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN FUCKING UP AT SOBER FUCKING EVENTS TOO. I’ve not only gotten texts about people being fucking WEIRD at sports (for example, being stupid shits and saying stuff like “durr what’s kickball?” is not fucking funny), but I’ve gotten texts about people actually cheering for the opposing team. The opposing. Fucking. Team. ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID?!! I don’t give a SHIT about sportsmanship, YOU CHEER FOR OUR GODDAMN TEAM AND NOT THE OTHER ONE, HAVE YOU NEVER BEEN TO A SPORTS GAME? ARE YOU FUCKING BLIND? Or are you just so fucking dense about what it means to make people like you that you think being a good little supporter of the greek community is going to make our matchup happy? Well it’s time someone told you, NO ONE FUCKING LIKES THAT, ESPECIALLY OUR FUCKING MATCHUP. I will fucking cunt punt the next person I hear about doing something like that, and I don’t give a fuck if you SOR me, I WILL FUCKING ASSAULT YOU.

“Ohhh Julia, I’m now crying because your email has made me oh so so sad”. Well good. If this email applies to you in any way, meaning if you are a little asswipe that stands in the corners at night or if you’re a weird shit that does weird shit during the day, this following message is for you:

DO NOT GO TO TONIGHT’S EVENT.

I’m not fucking kidding. Don’t go. Seriously, if you have done ANYTHING I’ve mentioned in this email and have some rare disease where you’re unable to NOT do these things, then you are HORRIBLE, I repeat, HORRIBLE PR FOR THIS CHAPTER. I would rather have 40 girls that are fun, talk to boys, and not fucking awkward than 80 that are fucking faggots. If you are one of the people that have told me “Oh nooo boo hoo I can’t talk to boys I’m too sober”, then I pity you because I don’t know how you got this far in life, and with that in mind don’t fucking show up unless you’re going to stop being a goddamn cock block for our chapter. Seriously. I swear to fucking God if I see anyone being a goddamn boner at tonight’s event, I will tell you to leave even if you’re sober. I’m not even kidding. Try me.

And for those of you who are offended at this email, I would apologize but I really don’t give a fuck. Go fuck yourself.

I never understood the Greek system, but I never much cared for the women who were a part of it just to meet guys.  (Tip: you don't need a Greek system to do that).  Anyway, most people are shocked by the tone and awesomeness of the letter, and Michael Shannon took a shot at it:

 Truly awesome.

YouTube Gun Celebrities — Where Are They Now?

(1)  Keith Ratliff, who insisted everyone has the right to an assault weapon under the Second Amendment, who hosted a popular YouTube channel devoted to guns, including videos like “Top Three Weapons to Survive the Apocalypse”, met his end violently on January 3, single shot in the head in his office, where he stored his many guns and rifles.  Police are treating it as a homicide, although nothing was stolen.

(2)  Then there's another YouTube celeb, James Yeager, the guy who said he was going to “start shooting people” if President Obama signed an executive order on guns. I wrote about him last week.  What's up with him?  From 14news.com:

CAMDEN, TN (WSMV) –

A Middle Tennessee firearms trainer who made an ominous comment about killing people in a YouTube video that gained national attention this week has had his handgun carry permit suspended Friday by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

James Yeager, 42, had his permit suspended based on a “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public,” the department said in a statement.

Col. Tracy Trott of the Tennessee Department of Safety said it didn’t take him long to reach a decision after viewing the comments on the Internet.

“I watched it twice to make sure I was hearing what I thought I heard,” Trott said.

“It sounded like it was a veiled threat against the whole public. I believed him. He had a conviction in his voice, and the way he looked into the camera, I believe he’s capable of a violent act,” Trott said.

Yeager told Channel 4 News he is aware of the suspension, and his attorney will handle his statements going forward.

And he tries, for a second time, to walk back his threats, this time with an attorney:

 

The Solar Flare Disruption

The huge solar flare that ignited from the Sun earlier this week is hitting Earth now, and may cause disruptions to high frequency radio communication, global positioning systems (GPS) and power grids.  

Also, the northern lights might be more visible.  Cool.

 

Yes, I Believe It’s From Nigeria

Pat Robertson asks if macaroni and cheese is a "black thing".  His (black) co-host, who knows where her bread is buttered, jokes with him about it, but the awkwardness stinks up the studio nonetheless.

 

Funniest aspect to this: Robertson wasn't confused about the notion of African Americans eating mac and cheese at Thanksgiving; but rather, he just doesn't know what mac and cheese is, and seems to think the dish itself is "a black thing."

WTF

Old Chinese people performing "Bad Romance"… apparently on the "Next to Normal" set

 

You Sneaky Mom!

Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to tell their kids "I'm sorry. I ate all your Halloween candy", and videotape the results.  The results?

LOTS of crying (but in my opinion, the last two kids are classic).

 

Controversy of the Day

In video one, a Central Park horse gets tired and/or trips.  The woman rider freaks out.

 

Question:  Was she over-reacting?

In video #2, the same woman sees that the horse is back in the carriage line, having returned to work.  Again, she freaks:

 

Question: Is the woman right to be concerned about the horse?

I'm siding with the carriage driver (who I thought was remarkably restrained).  First of all, the woman is all over Youtube complaining about the inhumane treatment of the horse, when the video clearly show that he first concern was NOT the horse, but herself.

Secondly, as one commenter put it:

As someone who grew up around horses these horses are bred to be work horses and towing these carriages really isn't bad for them. It keeps their muscles toned and keeps them healthy as they should be. he got spooked and tripped over a curb, it's not like he was hit by a car or shot. If the horse was really in pain it would be making noise, just like people do when they are in pain and it would still be on the ground.

In other words, this woman doesn't know what she was talking about.

There is nothing to suggest that this horse is weak or malnourished or had been treated badly (in fact, it looks well cared for).  Here's what happened — it got spooked and tripped.  People trip, too, but they go on with their day.

Beating The Heat

Dog discovers pool outside and thinks, "This would be awesome inside".  And can you blame him, with the heat?  He gets very determined.

 

Bachmann and the Marriage Vow

I love trashing Michelle Bachmann and how she keeps putting her foot in it.

Last week, as presidential candidate, she signed something called the "Marriage Vow", which is a pledge among presidential candidates (well, those who sign) to, among other things, fight against same-sex marriage, fight against Sharia law (this is a problem?), fight against porn, and basically return to family values stuff.

The Marriage Vow became controversial because it included this stunning statement:

"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President."

… a rather stupid statement which had Bachmann and others to assure people they were anti-slavery.  (Also, the facts of that statement aren't true.)

Anyway, the ladies from The View were cooking with gas about this today:

 

Friday Literal Video

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love "literal videos" — music videos with altered lyrics to reflect on the video itself.

Here's a pretty good new one, and being Friday… well…. here it is:

 

The Godzilla Tsunami Video

This is terrifying.

The video starts calmly enough.  Some water moving down the street.  Then, within minutes, it is tearing up cars and houses.  This guy was dangerously close, but safe.

If you want to see what it looked like before the video, check out Google Maps

Then watch this:

 

Charlie Sheen Interview: He’s Not Bi-Polar; He’s Bi-Winning

Okay.  I want the T-shirt rights to that.

Unfortunately, they're not letting people embed the video of Charlie Manson's Sheen's rantings, so you'll just have to watch it on YouTube.  I know Sheen is a punchline; I had no idea how deserving he is.

Bonus Sheen: “I am on a drug: it’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available ’cause if you try it, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body."

Elsewhere in the interview, Sheen claims he has “tiger blood” running through his veins, adding: “My brain … fires in a way that is, I don’t know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”

I'll buy that.

Making People Paranoid

This guy follows people around in Target, describes their actions over his cellphone and creeps them out.  If I had nothing better to do, I would do this for a living.  If it paid.
