More Stuff Happened And We Make Fun Of It!

Bill Oreilley calls to gloat about the Zimmerman verdict, Mitch McConnel calls to talk John McCain, Herman Cain calls to catch up.  We also take a look at the prosecutiong and defense  attorney's  jaw dropping response to the Zimmerman verdict. Plus Melissa Harris Perry talks about Edward Snowden and gets herself kicked out of the “smart liberal” club. Honestly, her essay about Eward Snowden literally turned my stomach.

Jimmy,

The Rolling Stones cover is a non-issue. The reason people are angry, is the whole point of the cover. Terrorists, murderers and anyone who commits horrific acts of violence can look like any normal person. Bad people don’t wear black hats and signs that say “bad guy”. They aren’t mustache-twirling cartoon villains.

It’s the old Hannah Arendt concept of the banality of evil. People can do horrific things while looking normal, while loving their friends and family, while liking the same things that you like. And it’s the complexity of issues that people are angry about. They just want to hate. They want a cartoon villain to pile all of their hate into, their own fantasies of violence toward the “bad guy.”

What that cover says, and the very thoroughly researched, complex and thoughtful article inside says also, is that you can’t profile people based on looks, like people want to. This kid was radicalized by American policies. Discussing that, looking into the reasons behind someone’s horrific acts in NO WAY supports those acts.

Talking about the illegal, murderous, blowback-creating American foreign policy that absolutely contributed to the events of 09/11, to the Boston bombing, and the many other acts of violence against the US recently and undoubtedly to come in the future, in no way justifies or supports those events. When people are angry and filled with the need for violent revenge, that’s just the moment when politicians can sneak in extra powers for themselves, like the Patriot Act and warrantless wire tapping.

On the George Zimmerman verdict:

Time for the Black Panthers to organize again, for real, not like the fake ‘New Black Panthers’ who make Glenn Beck cry.
How about if all black men in all of the states with stand your ground laws take advantage of open carry laws and start pinging off ‘suspicious’ whites, who are out walking in the rain, for example?
I’ll bet most of the wanna be Zimmerman rogue ‘neighbourhood watch’ assholes might stay inside instead of hunting black kids. AND, I’ll bet you might see some action on gun control, finally.
Bam! Two problems solved.

I think my comment to you in TYTU made more sense then what Melissa said. My comment also wasn’t supposed to actually make sense.

Thank you for this awesomely ha bisky podcast. I love you all.

Jimmy, I saw that comment and you were right. I was on Facebook at the time. I was surprised nobody called him out on how you were right not him. You’re is you are. You are didn’t make sense in the way you used it. Just because I don’t use grammar in the comment section (which I get shit for) doesn’t mean I don’t know grammar. Ignore those idiots.

Mike as Ron Paul is awesome. ♥ you guys a lot.
