Will humans ever transcend scapegoating? Especially when the entitled (white, male, GOP) employ it as a tactic against those who threaten their position at the top of the pecking order, invoking racism, misogyny and in this case fatphobia to punch "down" at someone they believe--and assume others believe--will respond to their bullying with silence and retreat.

So his frat expelled him. I'm sure another, more prestigious one will embrace him soon.

I’m kind of annoyed that this racist (ex) frat boy’s name isn’t being publicly disclosed… but unfortunately that would only make him famous to all the worst people. He’d lament how he got cancel cultured at TPUSA keynote speaking gigs with Kyle Rittenhouse. He’s monetize that game in a heartbeat, so yeah, fuck that anonymous hillbilly dipshit.

Gives credence to the saying breathed by every state in the union where this didn’t happen, “Thank God for Mississippi”.

"Joe Biden and the radical left" <---> "pro-Hamas, anti-American, Antifa anarchists.”

If you begin your thinking with where you want to end up, you won't have any trouble getting there. Works either way.

Why are Republicans like this?

I should elaborate. Why are Republicans weird human beings? Everything they do, they never approach it like normal, every people, even when they're trying to do normal, everyday kinds of things.

What is wrong with them?

I think racism is too flippant an answer. We've always had racists, and they've done some pretty atrocious things, but they didn't go through their lives acting like they were running off some owner's manual written by someone whose first language wasn't English.

Someone should tell those boys in the American flag jumpers they look super hot, and I mean that in the best, most gay way imaginable.

No. They already think that.

Someone should tell them they look super FAGGY. That would enrage them :D

Yeah, that was the first indicator of poor choices and assholery. If you disrespect the flag enough to wear garments that appear to be made from it, and think you look OK, it’s an indicator of generally poor judgment.

that video gave me heartburn. Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. She was brave to stand up to their hoot circle, and then had cops trying to convince her to ...? why weren't the cops telling the racist white boys to knock it off? Oh wait I think I might know why

If ape man was not motivated by racism, he was motivated by dumb as his face will be uploaded into every background checking company's database and will pop out a red flag to all of their customers screening new college grads they might want to hire.

“ to categorically and unequivocally confront anti-Semitism”

Because I’m sure that there’s no antisemitism among the student body at Ole Miss.

Also, don’t anyone tell this fool that Palestinians are Semitic as well.

That’s not what antisemitic means anymore. Misses the point. You had it right when you said there’s plenty of antisemitism at that school. Also, but a different thing, plenty of anti Arab and anti Muslim sentiment.

Oh, I know the general usage is different than the technical or historical linguistic spec, but it’s worth mentioning that the fuckwits making chimp noises are the same fuckwits crowing on and on about how (((Teh Joooos))) are the center of the ebil cabal controlling the government and the banks and controlling all your private thoughts because space lasers or whatthefuckever. Just because today there happens to be someone they hate even more as an available target doesn’t erase the fact that they are literal fucking Nazis, and would happily pull the lever to gas as many Jews as they could.

But also, there’s a reason that’s not what it means anymore. And it has a lot to do with the dehumanization of non Jewish Semitic people. Not going to go too far into it, but yeah.
