Heritage Foundation Very Proud Of Its Incoherent Bondage Porn Filibuster Tumblr Message

News

Hey, movie fans! Remember that Robert Frank Capra classic where Jimmy Stewart saves the day by standing up and filibustering a bill he knows in his heart to be bad? Pretty dramatic stuff, and an iconic bit of Authentic American Cornball Political Sincerity. Of course, as we all sorta-kinda know, the rules for filibusters have changed, so instead of One Brave Senator standing up and reading Collected Poems of Leonard Nimoy into the record, the minority party just says "We filibuster thee" and spits three times, and that counts. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, seeing all the stalled legislation and spit covering the Senate floor, hopes to bring back Old School filibusters: You want to stop a bill, you gotta stand up and talk.


So above is the Heritage Foundation's invocation of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, aimed at Harry Reid's proposal to change how filibusters work. We will now pause, class, for you to ponder what is wrong with this picture.

Oh, yeah, right. Requiring future "Mr. Smiths" to stand up and talk like in the movie will actually, uh, silence "Mr. Smith" because then he can't bring the Senate to a halt silently anymore! Harry Reid hates free speech and wants to duct tape Jimmy Stewart's affable corpse!

The Heritage Foundation is so proud of this image that when a reader suggested it was maybe just a little meaningless, they reblogged the comment with a smart answer:

jasencomstock: “We don’t have a case so look, a movie.”

theheritagefoundation: Sometimes the simplest examples make the best points.

Yes, especially when anyone who's seen the movie knows that image makes no sense! We guess that the Nino Scalia School of Rhetoric is more influential than we thought!

We look forward to the Heritage Foundation's next Tumblr post, featuring a still from the movie Bulworth to argue that Loving v. Virginia was an example of judicial overreach.

Ann Coulter is not impressed with Donald Trump's presumptuous plan to stop ripping babies away from their mothers and sending them to infant prison. For quite a while, Ann has been obsessively lamenting the very idea that American people even have children to "fill their lives with joy," but now (lol, "now") Ann has shifted her rage to immigrant people. Every time you watch her waving her alien-length arms around in a ritualistic frenzy over how shitty liberals are, just remember that we have already seen the emptiness of her soul laid bare. Remember that time she wanted to eat your baby because you got a tax credit?

It's just another Wednesday in an America that snatched kids from their parents and locked them up in old Walmarts. Trump just signed an unneeded executive order ending his heinous child separation policy, but his "the bad guy mobster in a mobster movie" tactics might've had some permanent damage. What remains of the shriveled-up soul of the grand old poor-screwing Republican party has finally had enough.
