Sympathy For The Devil? No Thank You

Check out this article, dear worst-reader. Then check out this one. Anything come to mind after giving these articles a thought or three? No? Ok. Let’s give it a worst-writer thought, shall we? First….

“A lot of these defendants… they’re all fucking short-bus people,” Albert Watkins told Talking Points Memo. “These are people with brain damage, they’re fucking retarded… But they’re our brothers, our sisters, our neighbors, our coworkers—they’re part of our country. These aren’t bad people, they don’t have prior criminal history. Fuck, they were subjected to four-plus years of goddamn propaganda the likes of which the world has not seen since fucking Hitler.”

The above quote is from a lawyer defending the Q-poopi-shaman from the Jan 6 underachiever insurrection. Obviously the lawyer knows what he’s talking about. Then again, by adding the BS that these people are our brothers and sisters, blah, blah, blah, does ring of sympathy fishing. Am I wrong. #Nomatter. My point is this: there is a reason the judicial system in my beloved & missed #Americant is setup the way it is. That reason is none other than enabling some to get away with crimes while others… Well. Only so many can be allowed to get away with crimes. And so. In this case, because so many–74 million?–who voted for former prez pee-pee-hair, don’t need to be convinced that these people are innocent and are fighting for a higher cause, there’s little doubt in worst-writer’s mind that these crimes will either be forgotten by the judicial or, at the least, diluted to the point of meaninglessness. Now. Don’t get me wrong, dear worst-reader. I get why participants in the $hitshow, i.e. the lawyer quoted above, wants to paint these people as “good” people, people who have no criminal record, etc. The problem with this sort of sympathy-fishing, though, means that the true, underlying danger of what motivates these people is washed over.

What is washed over? Check out the second article, dear worst-reader. And bear with me as I stretch a bit. The president of Belarus, a big fan and confidant and boot licker of Putin, ordered/forced a commercial jet, with a Russian MIG, to land under false pretence so that someone could be forced off the plane. And it’ll be no surprise that the person forced off the plane will end up being a political prisoner. Now. I know I’m stretching here. But is there, could there be a connection between the levels/layers of right-wing bat$hittery irregardless of it being underachieving insurrectionists in #Americant or Putin owned former Soviet Satellites, e.g. Belarus? Should I have included a link in this worst-post about what the Philippine authoritarian ruler is up to with things like telling police to shoot first and question later? And let’s not even get into the epic infringement on the rules and regulations of commercial airliners flying over boarders. Put another way, what is the end game of right-wingers and where do their actions and deeds begin? Fascism, maybe? And on that note, I die-gress.

Rant on.
