(Video is Not Safe for Work)
While a fascist slouches towards our nation's capitol, his hour come round at last, to be inaugurated as the 45th president of the Land of the Free, in the pulpit of the High and Holy Church of Both Siderism, nothing changes.
Because now that our corporate media has accepted "Both Sides Do It" as the literal and inerrant word of God, why would anything ever change?
From Mr. David Brooks in The New York Times (emphasis added):
...Bigots turn multidimensional human beings into one-dimensional creatures. Anti-Semites define Jewishness in a certain crude miniaturizing way. Racists define both blackness and whiteness in just that manner. Populists dehumanize complex people into the moronic categories of “the people” and “the elites.”But it’s not only racists who reduce people to a single identity. These days it’s the anti-racists, too. To raise money and mobilize people, advocates play up ethnic categories to an extreme degree.Large parts of popular culture — and pretty much all of stand-up comedy — consist of reducing people to one or another identity and then making jokes about that generalization. The people who worry about cultural appropriation...
And also blah.
The tiny clutch of freaked-out plutocrats who underwrite Mr. Brooks' career love this unctuous, smothering Both Sides bullshit, which is why you will continue to see it coming from everywhere.
That slight riffling noise you hear is the sound of the 3,000 theses I have already penned and nailed to this particular cathedral door being stirred by the whirlwind of Donald Trump's fascist mob moving in for the kill
So now it's 3001.
