The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg


The Christians Who Mock Wokeness for a Living is yet another 'Gorillas In the Mist' excursion by our progressive betters, this time over at The Atlantic (the link is to archive.is) where author Emma Green ventures deep into the heart of Redlandia to make contact with strange and exotic aboriginal people who live way out in the untamed wild, far beyond the boundaries of civilization. In this case, it's Kyle Mann, editor-in-chief of the Babylon Bee.

Her plaintive cluelessness throughout the interview is alternately hilarious and pathetic. For example:

Green: You guys wrote an article in January 2020 that was shared roughly 3 million times, claiming that Democrats called for the American flag to be flown at half-staff when the Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was killed in an American strike.

What makes this funny? I know that’s the worst question to ask somebody who writes jokes.

Mann: It’s funny because General Soleimani died and then they called for flags to be flown at half-mast. Get it?

Green: But that’s what I’m saying. Besides just saying the joke again, what makes it funny?

Mann: Do you want me to explain the joke to you? Because the joke is that General Soleimani died and Democrats were sad.

If you don’t know why that’s funny, then you’re not the audience for the joke.

And this is just the beginning. Toward the end of the interview, I was almost feeling sorry for her. On the one hand, it's a big, hilarious self-own on the part of Ms. Green. On the other hand, you have to ask yourself, is she completely incapable of viewing the world from a perspective that's not her own? And Mann sounds like he was caught completely off guard by the sheer magnitude of her blockheadedness. Instead of going through a stepwise explanation of the joke, he can only tell her that if she doesn't get it, she doesn't get it. Later on, when she brings up another joke that has evidently gone completely over her head, Mann says "I’m not going to sit here and deconstruct and explain every joke to you." Like he was losing patience. And can you blame him?

The Atlantic is reputedly the in-flight magazine of the Smart Set™. Yet, thoughout the interview, it is obvious that Ms. Green has no idea who this rube-from-the-sticks Kyle Mann is, how he thinks, or why the Bee has a fan base. It's as if she's doing the interview with her left foot firmly planted in a wastebasket.

Meanwhile, for the benefit of Ms. Green and others, the Bee published this helpful explainer, Here Are 10 Babylon Bee Jokes Explained (Just In Case You Don't Get Them).

I Got Your Religious Exeemption Right Here:

222..."I am pleased to see that you and I agree that we don't own our own body and conscience. Where we disagree is to who owns both our body and conscience. You believe that the State and your current employer jointly owns you as chattel and can freely dictate what they can do with your body and your conscience. I on the other hand have been purchased by Christ's blood to be His own, and to Him I serve. Your master believes that you are fundamentally unfit to live unless you are modified by this a constant stream of gene therapy. Whereas I am transformed by the Paraclete.

No one can serve two masters, for you will hate the one and love the other.

36 I went out of town this weekend. Yesterday, driving back I stopped to get some gas. Went in sans mask and a clerk at the front offered me a mask. I said, no I'm good thank you. 30 seconds later the manager came out and said if you don't put on a mask we will not serve you. So I said, cool, no problem and walked out.

Then drove across the street, went inside, nobody said shit. They got my $70 for gas (thanks Fuck Joe Biden for $4/gallon prices) of gas and $10 for snacks.

I can't really fault the manager, he was just doing what the tyrants in the govt tell him to do. But still, if enough people did that, the entire insanity would stop.

I have been watching these since last night. One of the ones on the link I posted had Groucho Marx! Also watched one of the Dean Martin get togethers (which seemed highly edited.)

One thing I noticed: The Dean Martin ones had lesser known comics. There were also more of them. Also, the banter was not as snappy from the younger guys. Came away noticing who seemed to have similar styles. Milton Berle and Don Rickles for example (although Rickles of course was more so.)

And the smoking. Damn.

I doubt she really didn't understand the jokes. It's a strategy; pretend like the jokes are so obtuse and unfunny that it's really hard to understand the punchline and why it's funny, thereby implying that the teller of the joke is just weird.

78 In regards to Gen Powell dying from Covid, apparently quite a lot of Cuban old-guard generals seem to be dying of Covid, and since they are also a bit elderly, no one can tell if Diaz-Canel is purging the ranks, the Cuban vaccines (they developed an interferon and later used something else) doesn't really work, or if they got the standard two shots of Pfizer unlike their citizens.

tinyurl.com/45dj54dt

I just find it sad that she was only married for three years or so and that she never had any children. No doubt she had many lovers and people who loved her, (and I'm not saying people have to be married and have kids to be happy) but considering how angry she was I hope at age 87 she's looked back and thought it was worth it.

92 I think a lot of leftists pretend to not get the type of humor the Bee does because you aren't supposed to be allowed to make fun of those sorts of things.

Basically, if they laugh they've committed wrong think, and if they argue with the joke they know they sound stupid arguing with a joke. For example, if you laugh at the AoC joke you are a racist. If you argue she isn't dumb well...no one can argue that.

So...they pretend to not get it since it is the safer choice.

113 69 In the interview, Steele insisted that his claim that Michael Cohen, then Trump's self-described fixer, traveled to Prague in 2016 for secret meetings with Russian officials is true."

Gawd, this was the very first claim that was disproven. The NSA illegally searched cell-phone records and found a record for someone named "Michael Cohen" in Prague that weekend - but when it was discovered that Trump's attorney "Michael Cohen" had a rock sold alibi in the states with multiple witnesses for the same time, AND that it wasn't his phone number, they realized they'd pulled the record on a different "Michael Cohen" who had nothing at all to do with Trump or politics and was just having a vacation there.

170 The death came despite Powell being fully vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19.

The original selling point of the clot shots was that "you can't get COVID if you've had the shot".

Recently the FNM has started to admit the clot shots do nothing to stop you from getting it, but they argue that it reduces severity.

The actual data says they do...for 4-6 months. And I've started to see some FNM outlets mentioned the "waning affects of the shots".

They *want* to then transition this then to forcing everyone to get boosters, but the smarter members of the junta/FNM know that if they do that now they will get massive non-compliance.

No doubt she had many lovers and people who loved her, (and I'm not saying people have to be married and have kids to be happy) but considering how angry she was I hope at age 87 she's looked back and thought it was worth it.

Apparently my MIL let slip to my SIL that I opposed her as guardian for my children in the event that my wife and I both died. As I understand it, she had a brief moment of clarity and was saddened by the fact that she was old, alone and would die that way because she was an uber-feminist. It didn't last.

184 Adam West was a talented actor. When he read the pilot Batman script, he realized that the character was not to be presented as an adult man, but rather as a 13-year-old's *idea* of what an adult man would be. And he played Bruce Wayne and Batman that way.

I still dislike the campiness of the series. Even at 12 and 13, I didn't think that was the way to do a Batman series. But I have to admit West was perceptive.

Here's what makes it funny, dearie: Soleimani was a rabid islamist Iranian who dedicated his life to killing Americans, undermining American principles, and establishing a fascist islamic worldwide caliphate.

When he died, real Americans rejoiced, and Dim-o-crats mourned. Soleimani was one of their ideological comrades. He hated America and Americans almost as much as Dims do.

Essentially the Goode Famiky was cast in a very sympathetic light as the idiosyncrasies of their woke liberal beliefs were used as joke material as their sensibilities invariably caused problems for them to deal with.

Dude was 84, had cancer and Parkinson's. I doubt he spent a lot of time out in public rubbing elbows with the unvaxxed. His life probably consisted of being at home with his wife and maybe some home-care assistants, and the occasional doctor's appointments.

To hell with you," rather than trying to justify himself by whining and saying "All civilized countries have parental live and it is a wonderful and joyous time to spend time with new babies." We were very happy that we had our son and it was a wonderful blessing , but his dad went back to work within three days after our son was born (Two of which were with me in the hospital) and I don't recall time with the baby being particularly joyous. It was mostly sheer exhaustion from a having a baby and nursing it and being up at all hours. FenSpouse carried the baby back and forth on the landing for hours because FenSon was colic. Therefore, I look at Pete B's comments with a rather jaundiced eye. They must have a lot of help

And shortly after bin Laden was killed, Seal Team Six had 15 (?) dead in a strange helicopter crash that killed 38. But allegedly none of them were on the raid. idk if there was any quid pro quo deal on that, but it is a popular conspiracy theory, and given Bagram surrender and China surrender and the DC cartel war on America ... it is not impossible.

329 I note that the media doesn't mention those from the Democrats/left that expire due to covid but they have no problem labeling the Republicans that might have.

They do mention it but really more in passing esp. in the headline.

Yeah it was the covid 19 which we all know republicans get and die from cause they're stewpid anti science.

They didn't press the point that Colin had late stage cancer and at 84 that in itself was a death knell. The secondary conditions that make covid more deadly all have to do with the immune system either being overwhelmed by a condition/disease or where the immune system is acting badly and is not doing it's job.

Keep your immune system healthy and well provided with nutrients and supplements and there shouldn't be any problems.

And don't forget to take your horse paste.

That's a distinction, but I don't think it is all that meaningful, and here's why. If a contractor (or, more likely, a whole bunch of contractors) are doing and not the NSA proper, that doesn't absolve the NSA or make them legitimate. These contractors are vetted by the NSA and/or its chieftans, and their activities within those databases are known or knowable. So the NSA proper either knows and enables it anyway (which is likely), or the NSA proper is playing "See no evil, say no evil" while loudly looking the other way.

Either way, that's on the NSA.

If you really don't care you are done.
If you care and make a mistake you are done.
The only way to survive is to decide to live and make no mistakes.

392 PSA: The definition of "metrication" is "the conversion of English units of weights and measures to the International System of Units," not "the subversion of American exceptionalism to European mediocrity." Putting the latter answer on a test question will earn you zero points for that question.

Which is BS if you ask me.

I noticed that the fried chicken is the only one without any accompaniments (sauce, butter, veggies, etc.). Just the core ingredients. As such it stands on its own merits! Doesn't rely on a supporting cast.
