White Supremacists In Stupid Outfits Descend On Portland, For Whatever Reason.

Post-Racial America

I swear to god, I had plans to just post something innocuous and perhaps even somewhat cheery for your Saturday open thread this week -- but then about 100 Proud Boys and Praying Patriots or whatever descended upon Portland, and UGH, I guess we have to cover that. Fine!

Why are they marching in Portland? I have no idea. I guess because there are liberals in Portland, and they are mad about that? That's basically the gist of it, according to Patriot Prayer leader Joe Gibson, who is running for Senate in Washington. "I refuse to do what Portland wants me to do because what Portland wants me to do is to shut up and never show up again," he said in a video on Facebook this week. So basically he is protesting the fact that he is unpopular and no one wants to listen to him? What does he think is going to come of this? The people of Portland will realize the error of their ways and elect him Prom King? That seems unlikely!

So now they're there, in stupid outfits, carrying Confederate flag bedecked shields and definitely not being white supremacists.

Who DOESN'T love a murderous dictator? This is all very normal.

And here he is... trying to dance? I guess?

This one in the uniform of a Kekistani soldier is my favorite. Clearly

The master race, indeed.

And now I need to go take a shower, so here is your OPEN THREAD! Remember to tip us, if you can!

If it's Sunday, this must be Nice Things, our weekly escape from the quotidian awfulness. Our featured doggo this week comes via a photo by Wonkette reader "Teecha," and we don't think Teecha mentioned a name for this lovely old rescue dog. If it is a dog at all: I think it may actually be one of Sia's more inventive disguises, like that time she was a little pony.

The producers of your favorite live-action Jack Chick pamphlet, "God's Not Dead" -- you know, the one where the Hercules dude plays an evil philosophy professor who tells all of his students on the first day that they are no longer allowed to believe in god? As all secular professors do? -- have come out with a thrilling new movie, all about how abortion is bad or whatever.

The movie tells the "true" story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic worker turned professional anti-choicer. Johnson has been a darling of the forced birth circuit ever since she made up ridiculous and provably false reasons for quitting the Planned Parenthood that was about to fire her for being bad at her job.

Basically, she claims that Planned Parenthood was pushing her to make more abortions happen so they could reel in more dough, and also that she witnessed (for the first time ever!) an ultrasound-guided abortion and saw the baby move from the light and then immediately realized that what she was doing was wrong.

The thing is, however -- no ultrasound-guided abortions were performed on the day she said it happened, and the only reason there was an uptick in abortions at her clinic was because they started offering the abortion pill on a daily basis (and had previously only been performing surgical abortions every other Saturday).

As you may have guessed, the movie does not address any of these things. It also looks very, very bad.
