Christofascists and Abortion Misinformation

 


With the recent Supreme Court Decision Roe V Wade (and ignoring 50 years of established precedent in favor of blatant partisan politicking in the process) a lot of people out there are turning to "medication abortion" as a safer and more private alternative. This of course would be the Plan C pills, which are a combination of medications taken 24 to 48 hours apart that induce contractions similar to a miscarriage to expel the fetus. The result is virtually indistinguishable from a miscarriage - that is to say, a doctor would not be able to tell that one had taken the pill or had a naturally occurring miscarriage. These pills are generally very safe and (until recently) legal in every state.

This week's stream focuses on bills in several states which are looking to ban the import of Plan C pills, such as Texas, Tennessee, (because conservatives hate freedom,) a bill in Missouri modeled after the Texas abortion ban which would allow randos to sue a woman or anyone who helped her get an abortion outside of the state (because Republicans were lying when they said it was about state's rights, of course) as well as some organizations such as Just the Pill which are working to help women in these oppressive states get access to safe and legal abortions. 

Towards the end we discuss Michael Laufer an the Four Thieves Vinegar Collective who put out a video instructing women on how to manufacture their own Plan C pills. While I understand their hearts are in the right place, I want to emphasize how incredibly dangerous this is. Please do not attempt to make and consume your own pharmaceuticals. Videos like this can get people killed, and I find it extremely irresponsible to promote these ideas. Ironically though, this video illustrates just how dangerous abortion bans are. Desperation leads to questionable actions, which leads to harm.  

Stay safe and stay vigilant out there everyone.

WTF is "Let's Go Brandon?"

 


The capability of the right wing to completely miss the point and wear stupidity as a badge of honor will never cease to amaze me. These people truly believe the dumbest fucking shit.

Libertarianism Sucks: The Age of Consent

 




Second in a series of livestreams about why libertarianism sucks. Today we're exploring the strange phenomena of the obsessions from libertarians with attempting to weaken or remove the age of consent. 

  • A bit about the underlying philosophy adopted by most libertarians, specifically how human rights are derived from property rights, and why it's friendly to pedophiles 
  • Murry Rothbard's take on the rights of children, and how it should be legal to starve them to death, or sell them. 
  • Why we have age of consent laws in the first place. 
  • Examples of high profile libertarian and libertarian politicians who have made comments to the effect of eliminating the age of consent

Plus we continue with our illustration of the Oompa Loompas invading the Smurf village.


Thanks!

The Stupidest Vaccine Conspiracy Theory Ever

 


John Nolte is a conservative writer/blogger type person for Brietbart, and is quite possibly one of the worst people ever. A bonafide racist, sexist, warmongering anti-refugee misogynist who seems to only give a shit about himself and no one else, Nolte has sat down, thought really, really, really hard, and come up with quite possibly the dumbest take on Covid vaccines I've ever heard in my life. 

Here's this moron's theory: Liberals and progressives are telling Trump supporters to get vaccines because they know the Trump supporters will do the exact opposite, because they want them to get covid and die. This would mean that the evil masterplan that Biden and his tree-hugging compatriots came up with to enact a genocide of conservatives is to spend millions of dollars developing a vaccine to a deadly disease, give said vaccine away for free, and tell people to take it. 

Can somebody invent a portal gun, or a Tardis, or a spaceship or something so I can get off of this ridiculous

How do these morons even breathe?

Libertarianism and Why It Sucks

 


Hello folks! This week is all about libertarianism and why I think it sucks. Topics include:

  • Why in the United States "Libertarianism" is nearly exclusively right wing compared to the rest of the world
  • Common Libertarian beliefs and their shortcomings
  • Yes, there are pro-war libertarians.
  • An extremely brief history of libertarians (like, extremely brief)
  • Why are there so many conspiracy theorists, racists, alternative medicine freaks, anti-vaxxers, MRM people, anti-maskers, Redpill assholes, gun nuts, religious freaks, preppers, sovereign citizens, and other assorted cranks under the Libertarian umbrella?
  • Some of my favorite wacky libertarian politicians
  • The libertarian to alt-right pipeline.

Plus we continue our illustration of the Oompa Loompas invading the Smurf village.


Enjoy!

Critical Race Theory Makes Chud's Heads explode

 


Hello folks! For today's stream we'll be talking about some stuff in the news, some recent Trump news, conservative reactions to Juneteenth being a federal holiday, and conservative backlash against the made up "Critical Race Theory" paranoia. Plus we color some funny monsters.

What I really like is that not one conservative political commenter that I've seen over the last few weeks has any idea what "Critical Race Theory" even is. To be honest neither did I until all this shit started - because it's not something they teach you in schools, not grade school, not high school, not even college. It's something you study in law school. They took an obscure topic that nobody's ever heard of an manufactured this phony-baloney crisis that has "concerned parents" and other assorted right wingers hopping mad in the streets - and every single one of them has no idea what they're even mad about. You really have to admire the conservative bullshit machine sometimes, they really know how to manipulate their people.

The lesson for us is the people at the top of the conservative misinformation apparatus are extremely good at what they do, that is scaring their people and driving them into hysterics. It makes it all the more important for those of us who have the ability to push back. Use the same social media tactics they do. Push back and spread the truth, in every way that you can, because the fate of the country really does depend on it.
