OMG, Michigan, Can You Stop Being Awful For Like Five Seconds?

News

Between thegay-hating paranoid that is the mayor of Troy, the vagina-hating legislature banning the word vagina (but not cunt), and this guy, Michigan has very clearly spent this past week trying to make Mississippi look tolerant and Arizona look progressive.


The Great Lakes State isn't even done yet because this is happening:

Tensions flared Friday evening at the annual Arab International Festival in Dearborn as members of a Christian missionary group taunted Arab-Americans with a pig’s head and signs that promoted hatred of Islam.

“You’re gonna burn in hell,” one Christian missionary shouted at a group of young Arab-American boys listening to him speak on Warren Avenue, where the festival takes place. The festival continues today in Dearborn, but the group of missionaries with the hateful signs and pig’s head won’t be there because they’ll be protesting a gay festival in Ohio, said Arab Festival organizers.

For what it's worth the Arab Festival is a standard middle America street carnival with a couple rides, moderately rigged midway games, and fried dough sold in units of tickets that (for no good reason) must be purchased at a different stand. Since it's an Arab festival, it does attract local Arab Muslims. It's also attended by metro Detroit's Christian Arab population who, like their Muslim brethren and every other decent human being on the planet, probably don't want their summer family carnival marred by assholes playing Lord of the Flies.

This thing is so Americana that last year the CIA set up a recruiting booth. You know, because our national security apparatus might better protect us if people working for them speak the language and understand the culture of people who are our enemies.

How can we as a nation convince a (largely immigrant) ethnic population that America is their friend and they should help the government hunt down and kill the same Medieval fundamentalists that motivated many Arabs to immigrate here in the first place? Oh, here's an idea: Let's have some  homegrown real 'Merican Medieval fundamentalists ruin a perfectly innocent, Mayberry-like street carnival.

Go Michigan! [Detroit Free Press]

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
