The "no-go" zone was THIS BIG!

Pete Hoekstra, he is this dumb fucking Trump idiot. He used to be a Republican congressman from Michigan, but now he is Donald Trump's ambassador to the Netherlands. Presumably he got the job because he was borned there, way back in 1953! But alas, he moved to America when he was three.


No seriously, Pete Hoekstra thinks that is what happened in the Netherlands, because he is a raging dildo breath who watches Fox News. In December, a Dutch journalist asked Hoekstra about comments he made in 2015, alleging that The Netherlands is full of "no-go zones," where non-Muslims aren't even allowed to go, and that all the Dutch politicians get set on fire all the time, by the Muslims:

HOEKSTRA: I didn't say that. That is actually an incorrect statement. We would call it fake news. I never said that. No, it's not what I said!

First of all, we must take issue with his statement, "we would call it fake news." Because NO, you Trump-licking cum sock, WE in America would not call it anything besides the fucking truth. Trump-licking cum socks such as YOURSELF would call it "fake news," because you are brainwashed by the brain-addled orange shithead in the Oval Office.

OK, now that we've gotten that moment of RAGE out of the way, we shall proceed.

When that happened in December, the Dutch journalist proceeded to SHOW HOEKSTRA THE CLIP OF HOEKSTRA SAYING THE DUMB STUFF, then asked, "You call that fake news?" To which Hoekstra responded:

HOEKSTRA: I didn't call that fake news. I didn't use the words today.


HOEKSTRA: I don't think I did.

And then the Dutch journalist literally exploded because of the bullshit. RIP that Dutch journalist, who is now dead of explosion!

Fast forward to this week, when Dutch reporters decided to ask Hoekstra more questions about "no-go zones" and Dutch politicians who are aflame. And oh, did they ask him questions! They refused to stop asking him questions, and he just stood there like a guy who can't find his wooden shoes with both hands (common Dutch joke! unless it isn't), refusing to answer the questions. But sir, tell us about everybody being on fire! Tell us about the neighborhoods you are scared of! Show us on the doll where the fiery Dutch "no-go zones" touched you!

At one point, a journalist asked Hoekstra to read a John Adams quote about "honest and wise men" on the fireplace mantle behind him, and in light of that, whether he would take back his comments about "no-go" zones. Hoekstra's response was to read the quote and then say "thank you":

This is a remarkable exchange, as reported by the Washington Post:

“If you’re truly an honest and wise man, could you please take back the remark about burned politicians or name the politician that was burned in the Netherlands?” [journalist Roel] Geeraedts asked.

An uncomfortable silence followed the question.

“Thank you,” Hoekstra said, before trying to call on someone else over the clamor of the reporters in the room.

“Excuse me, I asked you a question,” Geeraedts said.

Another journalist jumped in.

“Mr. Ambassador, can you mention any example of a Dutch politician who was burned in recent years?”

Again, silence, as Hoekstra stared around the room.

“This is the Netherlands, you have to answer questions,” another reporter said.

Yeah, not like in that banana republic you have over there in America now that a small minority of Americans elected a lying tinpot dictator wannabe!

WaPo, citing a CNN report, gives more background on the loony-ass anti-Muslim conspiracies (in addition to the stuff about "no-go" zones and all the Dutch people currently being on fire) this dipshit has pushed over the years:

He speculated that some 10 to 15 percent of the Muslim community in the world — 270 million people — were radical Islamist militants and appeared to imply that Huma Abedin had “egregious” ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a claim that The Washington Post’s fact-checker Glenn Kessler, and other publications, have determined as “bogus.” On another far-right show, Hoekstra said he had considered the possibly that President Barack Obama might be intentionally aiding the rise of Muslim extremists.

Donald Trump really does hire the best people. Or rather, he hires people just as stupid as he is, probably because it makes him uncomfortable when normal people are in his presence.

Thanks for voting, Trump supporters! Is this what #MAGA looks like?

Yesterday afternoon, 45-year-old Gary Martin of Aurora, Illinois was let go from his job at the Henry Pratt Company, a factory that manufactures water valves. In response, he took out a pistol with a laser scope and began shooting at random. He killed five people and injured six others who were just trying to make it through the day at the water valve factory, and then the police killed him.

His mother said he was "stressed out." He "seemed fine" according to the clerk at the Circle K where he bought his cigars that morning. His neighbor thought he was a nice guy. Some people were surprised, others were not.

This kind of thing used to be shocking, but it's a story we're used to now. It gets repeated at least once a month. It's just what happens now, and we can't do anything about it because we can't do anything about gun control. This is, the Right has decided, just the price we all have to pay so they can stockpile guns for funsies, and take sexy pictures of guns shoved in their pants. This is the blood that waters their special tree of liberty.

It's fucking exhausting. And stupid. We shouldn't have to live this way. No one should have to live this way. But we do. Why? Because some day some yahoos might want to overthrow the government, which is (of course) a completely legal thing to do, and their "right" to do that must be protected. So it's literally just never, ever going to stop.

Gary Martin, like most other mass shooters, also had a history of violence against women. In 1994, in Mississippi, he was convicted for stabbing one. He should not have been able to get a gun after that. I would like to know how and why he was able to get that pistol with the laser scope that he killed five people with yesterday afternoon. Maybe someone gave it to him. Maybe he bought it somehow. Maybe someone forgot to do a background check. Maybe he bought it from someone who didn't have to do a background check.

I am so goddamned tired of writing this article. I am out of things to say.
