Finally, the man gets his stopped clock moment.
So now we'll see if anyone actually reads David Brooks for meaning instead of for opportunities to make jokes.
for some reason I'm not impressed with this wannabe road to damascus moment.
Because Brooks is just babbling.
as per usual. yep.
I saw what Walmart was doing to the mid-sized Alabama town my grandparents retired to and wrote them off decades ago. I did a Google street view of that downtown recently, it's all dollar stores and pawn shops now.
"Place item in the bagging area""Unexpected item in the bagging area"
Make up your damn mind, machine.
Maybe someone will tape this article to Sinema’s mirror where she is most likely to see it.
"He's talking about a group of people so enraged by a lack of respect that they are willing to risk death by Covid if they get to stick a middle finger in the air against those who they think look down on them. They are willing to torch our institutions because they are so resentful against the people who run them."
They aren't enraged by a lack of respect, they are enraged because Fox "News", "News"Max, OANN, Alex Jones, and the 7 million "grass roots" organizations and "think" tanks are telling them they should be enraged about __________________________.
Those others are takin' yer jerbs!!!
And they're also enraged because they can't be as bigoted, as misogynistic, as ignorant, as violent, as traitorous, as sleazy, and as hateful as they want without experiencing pushback. Ridiculous that people like Brooks still try to justify their awful, awful behavior.
Heh, we have a long, well-founded dislike of the bulk of what Brooks writes. That's an opinion, not slander. But welcome to Wonkette!
Brooks is a smug, dull person with stupid or obvious ideas and an outsized sense of self-importance.
Mark Helprin’s execrable novel “In Sunlight and In Shadow” takes exactly this tack, with the hero - a working class merchant - fording an inlet in the Hamptons to get to His One True Love at a private club.
It’s embarrassingly bad, as one might expect from a conservative like Helprin who wants to make sure we all know that he knows The One True Way The World Should Work.
When then Hamptons crowd figures out that he’s NOKD, they are aghast…..a common, let alone one of /those commoners so often in trade,, in our midst! Their shock is palpable and disabling, and it allows him to escape with His One True Love, more or less abducting her from her nominal engagement party.
Raid the Hamptons!
My point exactly!
Sounds like 'The Graduate' meets Galt's Gulch!
Their troll prince (Bannon) and troll king (Trump) told them to burn it all down. If they can't have America, no one can.
