I’m recalling all the tut-tutting of Villager vermin about “tone” when describing something the Obama administration did.
Yet somehow this entire concept has vanished now that the cheeto-faced shitgibbon and his family are front and center.
Have some overnight Chlo-Chlo. With background Bootsy kitteh.
Shit is fucked. – @realannefrank
What a bunch of clueless, thoughtless, brainless, nasty, shitty, fucking assholes.
It’s late and I’m very tired. I’d use more adjectives if I could dig them out of my brain.
Our local (Providence) CBS affiliate likes to do “local boy/girl makes good” stories. Every time Viola Davis (from the next town over from me) gets an award, they’re right on it.
So this month, they’ve already done stories about Flynn and Spicer.
Maybe, just maybe, they should have waited a bit.
That would have looked so much better with some sparkly swastikas.
The Happy Message from Anne Frank with the Happy Graphics . . . wtf? This is beyond bad taste, into unbelievable self-parody. The old National Lampoon, maybe.
Get off her back — she probably has no idea who Anne Frank is.
She’s the one tap dancing with Fredrick Douglas, right?
@efgoldman: I forgot “classless.”
I don’t know if that’s better or worse.
@khead: Choo-choo-ka-choo is all aboard the pineapple express.

There are some diseases which afflict the opposite se x child. I am beginning to wonder if Ivanka is the opposite se x child because she comes across more and more like him.
assholes putting assholes into the seats of power. what could go wrong?
That Donald does have some strong genes, and I don’t mean that as a compliment. @Westyny: This.
Great SCOTUS death penalty decision. As usual the loathsome Thomas and Alito dissent. Thomas must really hate African Americans. Or maybe he just hates everyone.
I have no doubt that there have been many horrible Supreme Court justices lost in the mists of time and history, but Thomas must rank with the worst ever. He’s not just crazy, he’s evil crazy.
Trump said he wanted a justice in the mold of Scalia, but that just reveals his shallowness and ignorance. What he really wanted was someone like Thomas who puts all of his hate and vitriol into his decisions, especially his dissents. His fault was that he isn’t vocal enough for Trump. Scalia was a loud-mouthed bully. Thomas is quiet but pure evil.
I can’t recall the Lampoon ever being this tasteless. Or even close.
Can anyone rebut the notion that Ivanka knows about as much about Anne Frank as her old man does about Fredrick Douglas?
@different-church-lady: Given the sparkly pink graphics, it’s possible that Ivanka may have confused ‘Anne Frank” with Lisa Frank…
Hkedi [Kang T. Q.]
@TriassicSands: But thankfully, Scalia is still dead.
The upbeat Anne Frank graphics is 50 Shades of Tacky. It’s as bad as if Ivanka had launched a Springtime for Hitler fashion line.
Also, did Ivanka have to pay for the rights or get permission to use the quote?
But anyway, to commercialize it. Just freaking tacky.
@Anne Laurie: ha. You’re probably right.
We were helping our middle kid/older daughter with house stuff in Seattle and broke for lunch. As we walked down her street to grab a bite, a young man about her age approached from the other direction. He looked her in the eye and said, “Oh God, you’re ugly!” and continued down the sidewalk. I yelled at him to fuck himself, but what I should have done was go back and slam him against the wall of the coffee shop and yell, “What the fuck is wrong with you!?!” Her father was too stunned to do or say anything, which is just how he is, he does not react quickly.
This was an attack at her because she’s a female, but what inspires this kind of thing? Is this an outgrowth of the hatred inspired by Trump and Milo? is this the new reality? Open hostility against everyone not a white male?
Just “Wow!” Is there nothing these people won’t use for their own means?! And what you opiejeanne just reported is so off the charts as to be insane – we need another civil war and remove these bastards from our country.
Aside: got the thermo-nuclear fusion reactor I built to work at home Sunday! (aside, aside: the device is called a fusor and it is a radiation safe ‘toy’ (but very lethal voltage wise); it is a home project to keep me away from yard work … .) My fusor was producing 35,000 neutrons/sec! Which isn’t too bad for this class of device, so I have success on this front!
The reason I built this strange device is to test a new neutron detector I have proposed. However, in order to have determined if this “fusor” was working, I am using a standard neutron detector (A BF3 with enriched in B10; one I did build and assembled this detector myself, from parts. I’m cheap.) Next stage is to roughly calibrate my current neutron detector and then build my new class of detector and see if the damn idea has merit other than the theoretical … .
Those Jews, nothing is ever good enough for them. It’s almost as if they’re … I don’t know, greedy or something.
There’s another pithy line on that Ivanka page: “Earn Your Sleep.” Creepy. Like they’re testing out slogans for concentration camp gates.
@opiejeanne: your daughter is clearly beautiful…this guy is obviously a creep. But he may also be a stalker…he crossed the street and looked her in the eyes before saying that? Huge red flag.

@opiejeanne: hey, check your email (the address we’ve communicated on).
@Cermet: I just finished playing though Fallout 4 recently and I feel like you should be giving me quests.
@Cermet: Gee, and all I did was set up a Surface Pro tonight.
@sukabi: No, he was on the sidewalk coming toward us. And he was not attractive at all; I’ve been told this is part of the “male gaze” thing, unattractive men thinking they have the right to criticize a woman’s looks. Or maybe it’s just “keeping us in our place”. I don’t know.
That photo is from 2001 but she hasn’t really changed much.
This is the shit African Americans put up with all the damned time. I do not know how they stay sane/avoid committing murder on a daily basis.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: I baked a cherry pie in honor of George’s birthday.
@Major Major Major Major: I found it! Way back on the 8th, and I missed it somehow. Oh, I know, my son came up for a week starting the day before. Was hardly online.
Did you find any decent Mexican food in Reykjavik?
go hunt up the “Foreigners” issue.

@opiejeanne: now why in god’s name would I try to do something like that?
@Major Major Major Major: Ha! I thought you mentioned the scarcity of Mexican food.

@opiejeanne: I remember somebody saying that, but it wasn’t me.
@opiejeanne: You went to the bridge troll!
@opiejeanne: We are watching OJ, Made in America. It’s a seven hour documentary that is an intense look at race in America. Even if you are not into sports it is a worthy look.
Trump and his family are what I call NCAA people – No Class At All (NCAA)
(I’m not African American, or a woman, but even I can figure that one out)
@raven: I’m into sports. I’ll give it a look.
@opiejeanne: George is on the state flag.
@raven: No, that guy’s busy holding up the roadway and holding down a VW over in Fremont. We were in Phinney Ridge.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: And on every state highway sign, or at least his silhouette is.
@opiejeanne: @opiejeanne: Huh, I saw it on your flickr and, ever since I visited it 25 years ago, that’s what I thought it was called!
@a href=”#comment-6261215″>opiejeanne: An attempt at hipster irony, perhaps? Clearly, your daughter is beautiful. Perhaps he felt this fact was so obviously self-evident that his remark would be interpreted as humor. Pathetic any way you look at it.
@raven: It’s called that as well as the Fremont Troll. It was a local art project, and there is a VW bug buried under his left hand.
Seattle is a fun and weird place.
@Mobile: He was hostile in tone and expression. Nothing ironic about it other than his looks.
@opiejeanne: I was stationed at Ft Lewis between Korea and Vietnam and had some wild experiences in Seattle!
Your daughter is gorgeous. But even if she looked like the back end of a bus, the guy was completely out of line. I hope he doesn’t live in her new neighbourhood.
@SiubhanDuinne: She’s moving pretty far away from this one, to West Seattle. She bought her house for next to nothing 6 years ago because it was bank-owned and needed work; we helped her do a lot of the work. It’s zoned R-4 so now with the recovery it’s worth a ton, but the new owner isn’t tearing it down, so yay!
@SiubhanDuinne: Thanks. She was fine until we got to the lunch place, then she just fell apart. I was so mad I was ready to run down the street and find that guy.
Yeah, I’m a terrifying 5’2″, and nearly 67. Very frightening.
@opiejeanne: weird, unsettling, and rage-inducing. Whatever’s going on in that guy’s life, verbally assaulting your beautiful daughter was way out of line. I’d assume he has mental health issues, but I agree that public nastiness has been enabled by the current Republican party and their media enablers to a huge degree.
Hope she shrugged it off as a random nut yapping.
@raven: And that was probably before Fremont started having the annual nekkid bicycling Solstice parade with people wearing nothing but paint. It’s funny because after a very short while it was only shocking when someone had no paint on.
@satby: She recovered. It was intended to shock, and it did.
Iowa Old Lady
@opiejeanne: I’m sitting here furious for your daughter. I’m so sorry that happened.
I thought that it was a joke too. It took me several times reading it before I realized that it was real What an odious person.
Even so, it might have helped if you had one of those collapsible things J. Lo had in “Out of Sight,” see if the asshole wanted to “tussle.”
You and dmsilev should get together, probably have some interesting conversations.
@Brachiator: You kind of wonder what the jewy jews in her husband’s orthodox community think of this? I mean, I grasp intellectually that there are right wing jews but isn’t this a burning corpse too far, even for them?
@opiejeanne: Happens all the time. Since your daughter spent some time in NY she probably experienced plenty of this free floating male hostility. I know I’ve had plenty of it, when I was younger. I think everything has ramped up since Trump but the general level of male entitlement and willingness to spill rage on the nearest female is probably about the same as it ever was.
Anne Frank? Next month, Words To Live By, by Reinhard Heydrich!
@opiejeanne: Ugh. I am hurting for her and you. So sorry that happened.
Maybe the guy was mentally unstable and his verbal assault was not personal. But no matter, it was obviously upsetting, and I am sorry that you and your family experienced it.
My jaw just dropped so hard it hurts. Ivanka Frickin Trump using Anne Frank’s words to sell tacky, overpriced shoes. If this doesn’t just sum up this family and administration.
@opiejeanne: So very sorry this happened to you and her.
@aimai: Not in NY. She was there in the spring of 2001 with a bunch of other girls from her UC and all they got were happy comments from a bunch of firemen near what became Ground Zero a few months later. Their last day in NY they got the girls to pose for a picture with them. No hostility though.
Before the hockey game last night, we were eating dinner at Steak and Shake. We were near the entrance and there was a mom and 5 girls (the girls looked biracial) at a table near the window. At a booth near the center were a couple of old white guys. The girls were high spirited and having fun. The old white guy started screaming “SHUT UP! You’re making too much noise!” The mom said they’re just kids. He kept screaming for them to shut up and leave. I was so mad. We bought the family’s dinner and I went over to tell her not everyone feels the way those guys do. Assholes gotta asshole.
