From the Terrible Apologies blog:
From President Obama’s speech on drones and national security today:
“It is a hard fact that U.S. strikes have resulted in civilian casualties, a risk that exists in all wars. For the families of those civilians, no words or legal construct can…
The Iowa Republican said immigrants that Ronald Reagan legalized by signing a 1986 “amnesty” bill were responsible for Obama’s election.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Thursday that President Obama would not be president if it weren’t for the 1986 amnesty bill that Ronald Reagan signed into law.King is a leading GOP critic of efforts to pass an immigration reform bill, and has often said on the House floor that Republicans are overreacting to the 2012 election, which some Republicans saw as a sign that the GOP needs to get behind a reform bill.
Well, we certainly didn’t expect to see that headline when we woke up this morning…
The funny thing is, you can pretty much trace everything wrong with this country back to Reagan so I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama’s faults are included in that.
Listen, I realize everyone has their own ways to deal with tragedy. I’m definitely not one to say “this is not time to politicize.” Everything is political and everything that happens within our government has an impact on how we live with our every day lives. For example, it is most definitely OK to make the relevant observation that the federal government will thankfully provide aid and relief to the poor victims of today’s massive tornadoes in Oklahoma meanwhile Oklahoma US Senators Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe had voted against federal relief and aid for Hurricane Sandy victims.
I’m also not one who gets up in arms when people crack a wise ass remark. However, it takes a special kind of asshole to see that children are among the casualties and then somehow compare an unpreventable natural disaster to, say, a school shooting…
To those who may not understand what they’re getting at, it’s OK. Because they know exactly who to suck up to to get a pat on their head and a “good boy!”
And sometimes we’ll even be blessed with this sort of intellectual observation from pundits like Fox News contributor Erick Erickson!
Because a “scandal” in which the IRS looked into Tea Party groups to see if they fit the criteria for tax exemption is totally at the same level as a national disaster with a death toll still rising.
I don’t even understand how a tornado hitting is even remotely close to gun control, talking about gun control, about bills, or any of that.
God damn, do people just get dumber by the day or what
Hahaha, children are dead, just like that other national tragedy, what an opportune moment to make a wisecrack!
Not the time.
I’m sure it’s ‘not the time’ but we could always increase taxes to their pre-Reagan levels so we can afford the bare necessities like disaster relief.
A framegrab from TV news video shows lot upon lot of homes flattened by a “mile-wide” tornado in Moore, Oklahoma on Monday. At least 51 people are dead. (via KFOR TV / The New York Times)
There’s this guy I like but I can’t date him because he doesn’t have a job or a car. And there’s this other guy I like who has a job and a car but he’s kind of stupid and I can’t date dumb guys any more. Then there’s a guy who likes me and he’s unbelievably kind (and he works!) but he’s also kinda stupid.
idk the context of this but of course it’s a brown person who gets called out for appropriating or misunderstanding an east asian culture when it seems like the manga-ka is completely stereotyping brown people to be ignorant cultureless morons. while refusing to answer for the loads of appropriation and ridicule of brown cultures that east asian cultures are accountable for.
kinda tired of it tbh. i see stuff like this but not much about east asians getting collected for blatant anti-blackness and appropriation when the latter happens 24 fucking 7.
I’d like to ask why the mangaka didn’t use a white person since there are FAR more white people fucking up then there are brown ones. The fact that they used a Black person says a lot really. - J

This is the author, Felipe Smith is from brazil.
Also LMFAO because the biggest stereotype about weaboos is that theyre in the vast majority white.
Protip - never try to make any character anything other than white. People won’t realize that people, both good and bad, come in all different ethnicities and will just scream about how “racist” it is a non-white brazilian dared to put a non white looking character in his comic.
But don’t make any character white either because that’s just eurocentric. The lesson here is don’t make any character anything, ever.
