Jerry Falwell Jr. To Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: I Didn't Threaten To Shoot Muslims, I Just Threatened To Shoot YOU!

Post-Racial America

False prophet Jerry Falwell Jr. has Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in his sights. Last week, during CPAC, Falwell threatened to shoot the congresswoman if she "came for his cows." For the record, Barack Obama was never going to take away people's guns and Ocasio-Cortez is not the Hamburglar. She has spoken about the need to address factory farming and perhaps reduce our meat consumption. Those are both fairly mainstream proposals to combat climate change. Only idiots would think Ocasio-Cortez wants to ban burgers. However, Falwell was on a panel with Donald Trump Jr., so there was idiocy to spare.


That's an odd way to apologize for publicly threatening the life of a House member. How is Vic Berger a liar? The video is right there. Falwell can't really dispute the shameful footage, so instead he just ignored it and made himself the victim. Yesterday, Ocasio-Cortez herself shared Bishop Talbert Swan's tweet that showed Falwell threatening to shoot Muslims. She mistakenly identified it as something stupid Falwell said at this year's CPAC, but it was actually something stupid he said during a 2015 speech at Liberty University. You can tell based on how horribly Falwell has aged in the past four years.

After the 2015 mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, Falwell urged his students to run around the Christian school's campus with concealed weapons. That's all very Jesus-y, we assume.

FALWELL JR.: If some of those people in that community center had what I have in my back pocket right now.... Is it illegal to pull it out? I don't know.

Yes, Falwell Jr. was apparently unclear on basic gun safety, which dictates that you don't casually whip out your penis substitute in front of a crowd of people. It's also callous and gross to suggest victims of a mass shooting could've prevented their own murders if they'd just been armed like some common John Wayne.

FALWELL JR.: I've always thought that if more good people had concealed-carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in and killed them.

Falwell Jr. clarified at the time that he didn't mean "all" Muslims just "those" Muslims, which is actually still pretty racist. Ocasio-Cortez ultimately had a compelling point about how Islamophobia is tolerated in society. Even if this example is from the distant past of 2015, it failed to dog Falwell Jr., who is a welcome guest at conservative functions.

The tweet mixup resulted in Falwell Jr. and his followers repeatedly calling Ocasio-Cortez "dumb and a liar." These people believe in bovine death panels but feel comfortable questioning a congresswoman's intelligence. Then just a few hours later, Falwell Jr. decided to show just how free-speech-embracing he is and invited the woman he threatened with bodily harm to come speak at his school. He's supposedly doing her a favor.

Why would she want to do this? What is this weird, pervy obsession conservative men have with "debating" liberal women they don't like, specifically the young attractive ones like Ocasio-Cortez? If Falwell Jr. had truly turned over a new leaf of tolerance, he could try to make Ocasio-Cortez feel welcome at Liberty University. Some rough ideas include sending her a fruit basket and perhaps defending her when his loony Twitter followers not-so-subtly suggest assassinating her.

See, Ocasio-Cortez is coming for your cows (she's not), so the Second Amendment says you can take up arms against her. Just like how you can commit treason against the United States if Yankees try to take away your slaves. We don't recommend her spending her free time with these people.

Hooray, it's time for yet another dispatch from Fox News's big fun week of failure. (No, we mean even more failure than usual.) While all of Twitter is being annoying and talking incessantly about nothing but Bran and Daenerys and Carl and Peg or whoever they are, we have been (ignoring it and) focusing on all Fox's sadness, starting with Pete Buttigieg's town hall, where he called Fox News a piece of shit to its face. Then we laughed and laughed at Fox News idiot Pete Hegseth, who is sending lots of begging to today's college graduates, that they might immediately get dropped on their heads and forget all their education, so they might grow up to be the Fox News viewers of the future.

Oh, and we haven't even had a chance to LOL at the epic hilarity of Steve Doocy trying to do man-on-the-street interviews in Midtown Manhattan, shoving the mic into the faces of New Yorkers who literally don't care if he goes and plays in traffic. That was fun!

But the point of this post is that we have finally learned what makes at least some Fox News viewers tick, and it is that Tucker Carlson "laughs like a girl." That is not us saying that, that is a Fox News fan lady telling the Washington Post's Erik Wemple why she loves Tucker Carlson so much.

Old White Guys Try To Explain Abortion

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It's your Sunday show rundown!

popular

Michael is out, so I'm taking over your Sunday Show Rundown. This week everyone was talking about those awful abortion laws worming their way through state legislatures. As usual, most of the men were tripping on their dicks while trying to talk about vag. Luckily, there's enough women around to ladysplain things.

Bernie Sanders went on Meet the Press for the first time in FOREVER and played his greatest hits for all the kids. Sanders criticized Joe Biden's environmental policy (which is literally just "beat Trump"), stating that it wasn't "good enough." Sanders is right! (NO FIGHTING.)

SANDERS: Beating Trump is not good enough. You have to beat the fossil fuel industry, you have to take on all the forces of the status quo who do not want to move this country to energy efficiency and sustainable energy.

But then Chuck Todd asked Bernie a loaded question about women getting "sex-selective" abortions and the whole interview went off the rails. Bernie struggled to answer the dumbass question and came across looking stupid despite having spent the better part of the last week in Alabama railing against abortion bans.
