Well, at least we know how Ashli got that way.

The deranged terrorist daughter has a deranged, violent, mother who supports terrorism.

Pretty much what one would expect.

This is speculation, but I do suspect that one reason Ashli Babbitt died was because of the way her mother raised her. Like mother, like daughter.

I went through school with a someone teasible name, but at least I wasn't named "Ashli," spelled in a demented fashion, added to the last name "Babbitt." Names shouldn't matter, but in school they are a favorite tool of bullies. They also add to the first impression that people get when introduced to a stranger. Again, it shouldn't matter, but it does. Note that the Repubs did to "Barack Obama" what the mean kids do in school.

Ashli Babbitt committed suicide (by cop). How many times do you think the cop shouted "Stop or I'll shoot"?

So many stupid assholes in the world, so little time to make them all shut the fuck up.

Having clearly been fed a diet of right wing bullshit and grievance like her traitor daughter, she’s already decided what happened and who the enemy is. Nothing else will dissuade her. She is now playing the role of righteously grieving mother and her daughter is a blameless Christian martyr. Confirmation bias is a hell of a drug.

Nothing like raising all that sweet, sweet money…

This dipstick should be behind bars and charged with threatening the former (and soon, present) Speaker of the House, a current sitting member of the US House of Reps.

Threatening the government officials of the United States is a felony under federal law.

If only Ashli had listened to the cops…

Choices. Decisions. Consequences. Ms. Babbitt should have noted those three words. Instead, sadly for her it was FAFO.

Why the fuck is she out on bail?

Two problems with cash bail:

1. letting out violent harmful dangerous people

2. keeping in harmless people

On this particular week in September, I just want to state that 1/6 is way more devasting to me than 9/11.

9/11 is kinda like 12/7/41 - we were attacked.

1/6 belongs in a category with the Civil War.

We were fighting with ourselves and that's so much worse.

Ashli Babbitt is a traitor and un-American and her mom's just as bad or somehow possibly worse.

And like that war, the South attacked first!

I shudder in horror when I think about this. What if they had gotten to Pelosi? She's small and elderly, and they (or even one reasonably strong guy) could have easily overtaken and killed her in a number of ways. It makes me sick that this bitch can make these threats (yes, they are threats) and escape any consequences.

It's like people who say "No offense intended" right before they say something offensive.

THIS THIS THIS

EGGGG-ZACTLY! They are indeed threats.

Make no mistake about this. These people know exactly what stochastic terrorism & plausible denialability are.

Well, they know what the concepts are. I doubt they understand the words. "Stow-whatnow? Yew tryin ta call me stupid, boy? I'll show yew some fuckin terrorism!"

I guess we know where her daughter learned to be an ignorant, fascistic POS, then. I'd guess her Mom is one of those people who says "Well, they should have complied/ shouldn't have broken the law" whenever unarmed Black and Indigenous people (complying or not) get killed by cops.

Expand full comment

Yep, when I see this person's irrational, confrontational, belligerent attitude, I assume that's where her daughter learned the same. Maybe she's so out there because she knows she's partially to blame for her daughter's death.

This woman feels zero blame, I can promise you that. She is among the sadly large percentage of the population who cannot understand that their actions have consequences, and thus always have a scapegoat. For ease of future reference, we can call that percentage of the population "Republicans".

Being belligerent is very popular on the right. Just look at the gun nuts saying "come and take it"about their precious guns. Because their backs are always against the wall because of the evil gummint trying to take away their freedoms. I wish they would grow into responsible adults, but I know that ain't happening.

Ashli Babbitt was held responsible. Instead of learning from that, the MAGAs just become more rabid.

Expand full comment

She's probably mostly to blame, but hard to parse all the factors.

Also hard to tell if she's acting out because of guilt or she's just a nutjob.

Narrator: she's almost certainly a nutjob.

Still trying to understand why they are so pissed of at Pelosi for not stopping a totally peaceful protest of peaceful people peacefully touring the Capitol peacefully lamenting an obviously stolen election.

Forget it MrPug, it's Crazytown.

'Zactically. "It wasn't a riot! And I was there rioting because Trump told me to."

Right? Is the Speaker of the House supposed to guide every group of tourists as they tour the Capitol?
