    This is some good news! Two Atlanta police fired for using excessive force during the protests.

It's not the same thing as having come here as slaves or had to deal with the fallout of having been slaves that continues to this very day. And as COVID based anti asian racism showed, the old ways are just a stones throw away regardless of what you do. Is this the part you post crime statistics to show that blacks have it coming?

    It was on this date in 2017, 2018, as well as 2019, that “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” published profiles of Mike Moon, a member of the Missouri House of Representatives since 2013, and the only person we’ve profiled whose name can be spelled by Tom Cullen. Moon first took office in 2013 after a special election and was re-elected in 2018 on the benefit of facing no opposition at all in the GOP primary, and coasting to victory in the general election with 79% of the vote.

    Which, for Moon, is pretty lucky. After all, he’s made some of the most embarrassing remarks from a Republican anywhere in the country regarding abortion over the past few years, and that truly is saying something. In January of 2016, he sponsored legislation called the “All Lives Matter” act (uh oh). But don’t worry, it didn’t have anything to do with police violence, it was just a slap in the face to folks in Ferguson, Missouri added on to a Personhood bill he filed. It was even more of a bit of an eyebrow-raiser back in March of 2016 when during debate on a bill that would ban abortion at any stage of development, Moon was laughed out of the room when he compared abortion to the enslavement of African Americans for a moment before he claimed to be a “reproductive expert” based on his qualifications of being a “former embryo”. Alas, Mike Moon did not learn his lesson about looking like a boob for trying to get high and mighty about fetal development without knowing what the hell he was talking about. In February of 2017, Missouri Republicans were again looking to pass some form of Personhood legislation, even though it would obviously be overturned. And this time, Mike Moon didn’t just compare abortion to slavery. We mean, he did that, mentioning the Dred Scott ruling during debate, but this time, he also compared legalized abortion to “Jews being slaughtered by Nazis”, because why not add Godwin’s Law while we’re at it? But he STILL wasn’t done. He then began to argue that life begins farther than people think, comparing sperm to tadpoles, rhetorically asking, “Is a sperm alive?” Moon, an Ash Grove Republican, asked during a hearing Tuesday night on a bill that would enshrine in the Missouri Constitution the statement that life begins at conception. “Have you ever seen a tadpole? Is a tadpole alive?”

    So, since Mike Moon cares so much about life at all stages, you would think he would care a lot about saving the lives of refugee children fleeing war, right? HA HA! Trick question! Are those kids Muslims? Because if so, Mike Moon wrote a nice letter in November of 2015 where he explained he would like those kids placed in camps, and sent back home at the first opportunity, especially because you can’t trust ‘em because they lie so danged much.


    Mike Moon doesn’t like the idea of special protections in schools for transgendered youth, and in his arguments against them, he cites the work of Dr. Paul McHugh, who classifies being transgendered as a “mental disorder”, even though the American Psychiatric Association stopped classifying “gender dysphoria” as a mental disorder years ago. He also introduced a resolution that he and his fellow legislators should appeal to Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act with “manly firmness”, as if they would be able to pull it off if they just took an extra large dose of Viagra, or something? As you’d expect, Mike Moon’s whole voting record is pretty “out there”, including a vote to try and block the implementation of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 Environmental Treaty, votes to attempt to nullify federal firearms laws, and a vote for the unconstitutional HB 499, which would have forced schoolchildren to recite the pledge of allegiance… specifically in English.

    Since we first introduced you to Mike Moon, he has continued to be a goddamned lunatic. Take for example in June of 2017, how he decided to put up a video on his Facebook page to announce he was introducing new anti-choice legislation in Missouri, and he did so by discussing it as he decapitated a chicken. That is not a typo, Mike Moon cut off a chicken’s head and started to pull its innards out while discussing abortion.

    Now, if that isn’t crazy enough, there’s also the matter of former Governor of Missouri Eric Greitens, who’s been all over the news cycle for being accused of taking nude photos of his mistress without her consent, assaulting her during rough sex, and threatening to release the nude photos of her if she ever exposed him as an adulterer. After Mike Moon spent four years trying to impeach Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon without any real cause, when a governor comes along who isn’t just a sexual predator, but is caught breaking the law in multiple campaign finance violations and abusing charitable organizations to further his own political career, can you guess what Moon wants to do? NOTHING. Mike Moon thought it would be unfair to impeach Gov. Greitens for ANY of his moral, or legal failings.

    We’ll close this update out by reporting on Mike Moon’s voting record since we last checked in with him. Because maybe he’s mellowed out… NOPE. He’s voted for legislation to have public schools teach Bible courses, and voted for a bill that prohibits all abortion in Missouri “if Roe v. Wade is overturned”.

    It is, at least, perhaps possible that Mike Moon will not be in office come this time next year, as he is term-limited in the Missouri House of Representatives. He is, however, taking a crack at getting elected to District 29 of the Missouri State Senate, and currently will find out if he makes the jump to the upper chamber when he faces off against former Chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, David Cole. At this time, we’re pretty sure the state would be at least marginally better off with Cole instead of Moon, because he hasn’t ever said anything bats*** crazy publicly.
    Is Mike Moon the guy who fills in when Ron Burgundy is on vacation?

    Trump is that cartoon character trope of the guy who talks tough, but always runs and hides whenever there's any real danger.

    This is the quick decisive tangible action that needs to happen. It shouldn't take all these protests either. It would go a long way to showing that is and isn't tolerated.

    So that must be their excuse for opening fire on nurses trying to treat the injured on the streets, including going into medical tents and opening fire on the occupants with rubber bullets, or opening fire on then after they had taken shelter in an alley to avoid being shot.

    Half of them probably had him on mute. That's what I do whenever Trump comes on the TV.

    I’d love some one who believes in Karma to come along to explain how Trump ends up where he is.

    He must have done a lot of good deeds in an earlier life, maybe?

    Seriously... the cell phone is literally changing the world. Or at least in more crowd city enviroments where you have crowded streets of people, all of whom have a cell phone ready and able to put something on instragram at a moments notice. It's the great equilizer.

    For rogue cops, cellphones have become their worst enemy. No more committing questionable arrests or flat out crimes in a vacuum, because SOMEBODY is filming.

    Apparently the Pittsburgh riots where started/escalated by a 20 year old radical vegan white man called Brian Bartels. Firearms found at his home.

    Can't make this shit up.
