Reader Fotos: God Hates America, Loves Taiwan

News

Oh well looky here! Two (2) brave Wonkette readers have sent us photographs of the night sky showing a frowning Space Jesus in North America and a happy lil' Sky Monster in "the nation most likely to be confused with Thailand." To your left you see the adorable Taiwanese sky, pictured at about 7:30pm local time yesterday. Paul, who sent us this picture, would like to remind you that Taiwan is in the northern hemisphere, so no bellyaching from you Americans and Canadians about how God just likes the down-under peoples better. In truth he just prefers those nations where people wear slippers around the house instead of keeping on their street shoes like common slobs.


And then here is our frowny American sky, which has a sad because it just learned the economy went into recession a year ago. And that, friends, concludes this post, which has almost nothing to do with politics or "DC Gossip."

Thank you to Mel and Paul for the nice pictures.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
