Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid icon who emerged as South Africa’s first black President after spending 27 years as a political prisoner, passed away at the age of 95.
While human beings around the planet Earth mourned the loss of a hero, the vile repugnant slime monsters, whom also go by aliases such as "Conservatives," "Republicans," and the "Right Wing" had a different outlook on the passing of a man who changed a nation and inspired a world…
Don’t forget: President Ronald Reagan too thought Nelson Mandela was a terrorist commie. However, as usual, upon realizing history found them on the wrong side at the time, the right wing is now trying to co-opt Nelson Mandela and act as if they were always behind him.
Over on Ted Cruz’s official Facebook page, a post went up in remembrance of Nelson Mandela. However, while the professional right tries to fix their image, the Republican base is more than happy to pull back the curtain and show how true Conservative ‘patriots’ feel about Nelson Mandela…
From the GOP’s official Facebook page, comments left on their Nelson Mandela in memory of post:
On Reason.com’s Facebook post, because don’t let Libertarianism fool you into pretending Libertarians are anything anything but right wingers with a “hipster” look to appeal to younger people:
And of course, how can any good Conservative speak of Nelson Mandela without PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA coming to mind! Because, as we all know, Nelson Mandela’s death is all about Obama…
Gotta’ hand it to Shelly for the above comment, she managed to invoke Trayvon Martin in her tweet too!
Did you know that Nelson Mandela died to distract us all from the problems with Obamacare?! Why, let these patriots clue you in!…
However, after all you just saw, I think Fox News contributor Todd Starnes' tweet takes the cake. You see, Todd here was livetweeting President Obama's statement on Nelson Mandela's passing. It seems Obama was a little late to addressing the nation. Todd Starnes was PISSED. How dare Obama disrespect the great Nelson Mandela!…
Todd Starnes must really respect Nelson Mandela, right?
lmao. Check out this tweet from just a year ago where Todd Starnes complains about President Obama…SHOWING NELSON MANDELA SOME RESPECT.
Remember this hatefest, because it probably won’t be long before they start treating Mandela like they treat MLK. They’ll all be arguing that they were with him all along and that liberals backed apartheid.
Trust me. It’s only a matter of time.
J: LOL! No comment necessary.
Reminder how much Walmart takes from taxpayers, even those who don’t shop there. (via @sarah_clem)
Also a reminder that many people on public assistance have jobs. Keep that in mind next time some GOP empty suit tries to play the “lazy colored people” card.

An infographic about the Trans-Pacific Partnership provided by 350.org.
What you need to know:
- The Trans-Pacific Partnership would create a super-treaty which would jeopardize the sovereignty of the nations involved by giving that power to large corporations like Wal-Mart, Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, Pfizer, Halliburton, Philip Morris, GE, GM, Apple.
- There are currently 11 nations involved: U.S., New Zealand, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, Mexico and Canada. Japan has shown interest.
- The economic power of this group is more than 40% larger than the 27- nation European Union.
- TPP will offshore millions of good-paying jobs to low-wage nations, undercutting working conditions globally and increasing unemployment.
- TPP will expand pharmaceutical monopoly protections and institute longer patents that will decrease access to affordable medications
- TPP will limit food GMO labeling and allow the import of goods that do not meet US safe standards.
- TPP will institute SOPA, PIPA, and CISPA-like regulations and Internet measures which restrict our right to free speech.
- TPP will roll back Wall Street regulations, and prohibit bans on risky financial services.
- TPP will give multinational corporations and private investors the right to sue nations in private tribunals. These tribunals have the power to overturn environmental, labor, or any other laws that limit profit, awarding taxpayer funded damages.
- TPP will encourage the privatization of lands and natural resourcesin areas where indigenous people live.
Course 101: When can you not say “legitimate rape”…
J: You fucking have to take classes to fake decency? All i need to know.
Did you know Americans use to salute the flag, like the Nazis did, before the Nazis began using it?
The Bellamy salute is the salute described by Francis Bellamy, a famous Christian Socialist, to accompany the American Pledge of Allegiance, which he had authored. During the period when it was used with the Pledge of Allegiance, it was sometimes known as the “flag salute”.
During the 1920s and 1930s, Italian fascists and Nazis adopted a salute which was similar in form, resulting in controversy over the use of the Bellamy salute in the United States. It was officially replaced by the hand-over-heart salute when Congress amended the Flag Code on December 22, 1942.
And did you know that the Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the same guy - Francis Bellamy, who was a Baptist minister - and originally said this:
I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Nope. No “under God” until the Catholic Knights of Columbus lobbied to include it after 1951.

Durham, North Carolina: “Fast food workers repeat 1957 march to segregated lunch counter at Royal Ice Cream, which was site of the first sit-in during Civil Rights movement. Now fast food workers carry the torch and struggle for justice on the job! Burger King worker Willetta Dukes speaks to crowd.”

J: It’s easy for me to stand with the worker since I don’t buy fast food chemically induced poison, but if it’s going to be served, let it at least be by fairly paid workers, not just the sling-snots at the corporate end.

J: Given the choice, I choose murder and why hasn’t science come up with a way to give men the option of carrying all these “unborn”fetuses they so desperately think should be saved? I say carry them yourselves and give birth in the same manner you demand of women and then go on to fucking raise them. Oh, by the way, I’m no scientist but I fully believe a birth canal could be manufactured and implemented into a man’s body giving men the option of birthing through their assholes as it is an opening equal too or bigger than that of a woman’s vagina. See how simply this problem can be resolved? Wait….You don’t want to and you think you don’t have to and you believe no one has the right to force this upon you? WELL, JOIN THE FUCKING CLUB!
This is the best thing ever.
J: I love this program.
The news media wouldn’t cover Blackstone’s shady dealings, so Samantha Bee brilliantly took matters into her own hands on last night’s Daily Show.

J: Of course it wasn’t covered by the mythical liberal media nor by the oleaginous whores of no remorse known as Fox News since all the media is owned by the Big 6 (666) corporations who control and provide us, the dirty masses with an over-to-an-interregnum of discord, mockery, and delight by gossip, slander, and false reporting.
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
