This would stir things up (just a little):

Sentences (#91)

Broken on Twitter, but containing far too much insight into traumatic discrimination disorder to leave there:

NRx and Alt Right share just about one thing in common, but because that thing is “hating the media” the media naturally can’t tell them apart.

(Sentence unchanged, but glued back together, with one semiotic shortcut — “bc” for “because” — edited up into English)

For historical reference, this was the occasion.

Kurt Eichenwald’s Bad Day

I wouldn’t have thought it could get any worse than this, either.

But then

ADDED: ‘Open Blogger’ at AoS also delicately questions the quality of Eichenwald’s performance.

A little hyperbolic, but definitely on to something.

Shrink-Wrapped Schadenfreude

They’ve actually made it into a gift-pack:

The crying continued throughout the week. On the subway in New York City, sniffles punctuated heavy silence. Sickness or sadness? It was impossible to tell without staring. Friends confessed to each other they’d cried dozens of times. Foreigners living and working legally in America cried privately, cried together. The sadness came in waves. People said it felt like a death, like a breakup, like a national disaster. People checked in on each other. “Are you OK?” they’d ask, as though a relative had passed. […] Harrowing tales of crying continued into Friday, as Lena Dunham published an essay in Lenny Letter about how she was so distraught on election night, she broke into a hive that matched the hive of another woman in attendance at the Hillary Clinton rally, and how she cried for days after the election. The crying continued into the weekend. Saturday Night Live’s cold open ended with Kate MacKinnon, in character as Hillary Clinton tickling out Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” on a piano, teary-eyed as she promised to fight on. …

ADDED: Complementary sarcastic gloating.

ADDED: And from the full-commies at Jacobin Mag (quite wittily): “Watching the results on Election Night was like what I’d imagine living in an eighties teen horror movie would be like — the summer camp air curdling into one of vague suspicion, as a strange dawning sensation of doom takes hold. Slaughter: Ohio, Florida, Michigan — all bloody and prone. Who will be picked off next? Pennsylvania? Wisconsin? Minnesota? Your state? The vote is coming from inside the house.”

Anglophidian

stompedsnake

I’m going to assume that snake is English (despite all natural-historical evidence to the contrary). The point is hard to contest, regardless. The ones that bite are better.

There’s so much “I can’t even …” packed into this tweet, I just had to share it.

Quote note (#271)

What?

The alt furry movement finds like-minded allies within the alt Bronies, adult male fans of the TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic who subscribe to the same neo-reactionary politics.

(There’s no way this one get a ‘Neoreaction’ tag. I’m giving it an ‘Alt-Right’ tag just to be annoying.)
