There aren’t many days I couldn’t give Trump this award, so I try to save it for the more egregious occasions (which, again, could be almost daily). He gets it  for his response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. Apparently, he believes they don’t deserve help because they are in debt. (Here’s a mirror Don, how many times have you been bailed out?)

As a matter of fact, speaking of Don being bailed out, the Dumpster defaulted on payments for his bond-funded gold course in Puerto Rico, and left the Puerto Ricans holding the bag for $32.7M. I think he should make a personal contribution to the Puerto Rican relief effort of at least that amount, but then again, I’ve heard of no one seeing that $1M check he pledged to help our Houston.

I suppose it will come as no surprise to anyone that these two will wind up with multiple DBoTD awards. Along with a number of other fundamentalist nut-jobs, these two are blaming Irma and 9/11 on LGBT people.

In their video, the bothers, in discussing 9/11, had this to say, “One of the things we heard a lot 16 years ago was rebuild, rebuild, rebuild, but one of the words we didn’t hear was repent.” “As a nation,” they continue, “if you would have told us back then, in 2001, that in 2017 we would be completely redefining what gender means, what marriage means, what sexuality means … I would’ve–I would’ve said, ‘there’s no way that would happen in this country!’”  Continue reading »

I haven’t been awarding these much lately, well, because with the Trump Administration, there would be just too many ties each day. But I thought that Julie Gunlock, senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, deserved special recognition for some things she said on a recent edition of Fox and Friends.

Julie is upset that, apparently, behind the backs of parents as part of some great conspiracy, schools are (gasp) feeding children and teaching science. And by gawd, it has to stop.

“More and more now these schools, elementary schools are taking on and supplanting parents,” Gunlock said. “They get dropped off at 6:30 in the morning, they get three meals a day. There is after-care. There is even health care services at some schools. So, really schools have tried more and more to take on the role of parenting.”

Yes, the schools are providing these things, and why? Well, first off, they are voluntary, so parents must think they are a good thing, but this is still just another example of a favorite Republican pastime, “poor shaming.” There was a time in America when a family could live a comfortable life on a single income, leaving one parent at home for child-rearing. Thanks to Republicans and their failed trickle-down economics theory, that’s just not possible. Both parents need to work, and even that is still a struggle. So schools have had to step up and try to help parents and children, but of course, let’s make people feel bad for using these services.

And just as an aside, she’s also got her knickers all in a wad over the fact that these liberal schools are teaching things of devil like “climate change.”

As Allen Clifton over at Forward Progressives put it:

As for her assertion that “political topics” are now being pushed in school, such as climate change, she’s out of her mind. We shouldn’t dumb-down our education system just because some people want to deny facts, reality, science, and history. When the majority of the world’s scientists believe in human-made climate change, that means it damn sure needs to be taught in school. Just because there are people like her who choose to be ignorant doesn’t mean the facts become a “matter of opinion.”

Climate change is real — end of story.

This woman is essentially arguing that teaching factual science, feeding children, and providing after school care is tantamount to liberal brainwashing.

I couldn’t have said it better myself Allen. The stupid just burns.
