Stupid Rightwing Anti-Bowe Bergdahl Facebook Page Is Now All Full Of Goats

News

Oh, hurrah, the goatz have struck again! For some while now, a clever fellow calling himself Busta Troll has made a hobby of rudely seizing control of egregiously rightwing Facebook pages and replacing their idiocy with pun-filled images of goats.


It would be inaccurate to call this "hacking," since that actually requires playing dirty with computer code; no, this is far simpler. Busta Troll simply hangs out on a wingnut Facebook for a while, pretending to agree with them, and then asks for administrator privileges (which is ridiculously easy), so he too can post cool anti-Obama stuff there. And then after he takes over, GOATS! The latest victim: a page called "Bowe Bergdahl is NOT a hero." It now offers a far more wholesome, goat-oriented discussion of L'affaire Bergdahl. For Goat Justice.

The other nice thing about Busta Troll's method, of course, is that, like the old joke about every third Klansman being an FBI infiltrator, it sows paranoia among the people running rightwing Facebook pages. Who knows, they may even become a little less enthusiastic about posting hate-filled content. OK, so we're dreamers.

That'll do, Goatz. That'll do.

What's that, Goatz? You say you've also taken over a paranoid New World Order freakout page called "FEMA Exposed," which until recently was dedicated to this pile of derp?

FEMA has been militarized by Obama and is mobilizing to re-educate Americans to blindly follow the doctrine of socialism and the religion of Islam.

Only now, it's starting to look less like this...

and more like this:

Nicely played. Let the Goating commence.

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

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.
