So it’s come to this.

We all know how this is going to go. Guthrie is going to ask Sandmann if he is a bad person, and he is going to say, “No, I’m actually a good person,” or whatever the Republican PR firm his parents hired tell him to say, and Guthrie is going to ask, “How did it feel,” and he will say, “I was really scared.” She might ask, “What about the kids doing the tomahawk chop?” He’ll probably say, “Well I wasn’t, and that was wrong.”

Guthrie likely won’t ask, “You and your friends were wearing MAGA hats, a universal symbol of white supremacy, isn’t that kind of an issue?” 

She likely won’t ask, “You were this huge crowd of boys, high on your own testosterone, filled with obvious hate, who surrounded an elderly Native American veteran and taunted him with racist gestures, why in the world should anyone be sympathetic towards you?”

White teenage boys always get sympathy in America.

She likely won’t ask, “Why shouldn’t we believe what we all saw with our own eyes?” The official position now is that what we saw with our own eyes was wrong. WTF!!!

Will anyone on the opposite side of this story, Nathan Phillips, for instance, be interviewed? I guess we’ll find out.

But Sandmann’s journey of lucrative victimhood is now well on its way.

This kid will literally get fucking FAME out of being a complete shit!

Sometimes I wish Canada builds a wall. Christ.

A Mob of Catholic high school boys wearing MAGA hats surrounded and mocked a native American elder.

Politico reports:

Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.) condemned a group of young students for displaying “blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance” in a viral video apparently taken during Friday’s Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, D.C.

“This Veteran put his life on the line for our country,” Haaland, one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress, wrote on Twitter. “The students’ display of blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance is a signal of how common decency has decayed under this administration. Heartbreaking.”

Haaland shared the now-viral video that was reportedly taken during the march. The Twitter video surpassed more than 3.7 million views in two hours. The video shows a group of dozens of mostly young men wearing President Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” hats and other apparel supporting the president.

 

This is fucking sad and embarrassing, but when you hear those Trumpers whine and sneer at what they term “political correctness” what they are really saying is they want the freedom to abandon common decency and not be held accountable by the rest of society.

And the fact is:

At this point, America looks beyond salvation. 

When it comes to the coldest places on Earth, besides Antarctica, Greenland, and Russia, there’s also CANADA!

Being the coldest country in North America, this week was pretty brutal over here. 

Here in Montreal we are dealing with -32°C (-27.4°F) due to the windchill for the third day.

And that’s not so bad compared to other places… Just take a look.

Back in the 90’s I remember the average temperature on a winter day in Montreal was between -35°C to -40 °C. And I remember that because I had to run indoors many times to not freeze to death. But climate change is making Earth warmer, and that’s NOT a good thing.

Still, I LOOOOVE Canada!! 

 

Yup, America has let itself GO.

If you’ve got a dog friend in your life hug them, and give them some chicken in memory of Boo the Pom Pom.

Boo was an internet star who had more Facebook followers than all of us combined times a million and was once declared the World’s Cutest Dog.

Sadly, the fluffy ball of animatronic teddy bear adorableness died yesterday morning at the age of 12… Boo’s humans broke the sad news to his 16 million Facebook followers last night.

Google tells me that the lifespan of a Pomeranian is 12 to 16 years, so Boo may have been on the young side, but his humans say he had heart issues that began after his pom brother Buddy died in 2017.

But truth be told these dogs are bred to be cute and that has a price, as they are genetically deficient and have many ailments, because humanity is evil as hell.

Like Jiff the Pomeranian, Boo’s internet fame led to getting that money through endorsement deals and through his many books and toy line. And now, he can rest in heaven, where he and Buddy are causing the angels to awww themselves inside out with their double dose of happy cuteness:

We humans don’t deserve the love and loyalty dogs give us, but they keep giving it to us anyway.

Rest In Bliss beautiful Boo!

Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element was released more than two decades ago and is still considered one of the most iconic sci-fi films ever made.

For fans of the cult film, there’s one scene that’s bound to stick out in your mind, the Diva Dance.

Performed by an extravagant alien opera singer called Diva Plavalaguna, the blue-skinned, tentacle-headed character wows an audience with her impressive vocal range and otherworldly dance moves. In homage to the iconic scene, Chinese opera singer Jane Zhang sang her own rendition of the song, complete with a full orchestra.

The original Diva Dance was performed by Albanian opera singer Inva Mula-Tchako.

According to movie trivia, the film’s composer Eric Serra designed the futuristic pop-opera to be technically impossible for a human to hit some of the high notes so quickly after another. Therefore, Mula-Tchako had to sing the notes individually so that they could then be arranged digitally.

However, this didn’t stop Zhang from taking on the challenge, who hit every note perfectly without the help of any computer editing, mastering the seemingly impossible.

Absolute GLORIOUS!

When Cardi B is a voice of reason against you, you should know you’re a total fuck up (talking to you, individual one).

I’m not a fan of her, and she may not be the most eloquent, but she doesn’t seem like a selfish human and makes sense every now and then.
