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!

Hello! Here a beautiful open thread for you to not comment all over, so that you don't not comment all over Dok's book club post.

I was gonna drop my Nonnie's recipe for Easter bread in here, but apparently it has to proof overnight and is also for approximately 87,000 people, so not much of a point to that! (Though here it is if you really want it. She doesn't do the egg thing, but if you want, you can put some dyed raw eggs in the braided dough before you bake. And you can add sprinkles, and anise if you're gross and like gross things) I was gonna try and make it myself last night, but have instead opted to just make waffles. Waffles are FINE.

So instead, I shall just leave you with this absolutely terrifying version of The Velveteen Rabbit starring Marie Osmond as said velveteen rabbit. Coincidentally, Marie Osmond is also Nonnie's 2nd arch-nemesis, after Rachel Ray (Rachel Ray because she doesn't pull her hair back when she cooks, and Marie for reasons I'm not entirely clear on but which I believe are related to a Weight Watchers commercial).

'Unemployed men queued outside a depression soup kitchen opened in Chicago by Al Capone' -- National Archives

Happy Day Before Half-Priced Easter Chocolate Day, Wonkers! Time to wrap up our Wonkette Book Club discussion of Winter War: Hoover, Roosevelt, and the First Clash Over the New Deal, by Erich Rauchway, a historian at UC-Davis. We're increasingly convinced the book might have just as well been titled Herbert Hoover: Christ, What An Asshole! As ever, even if you haven't finished the reading, jump in anyway -- there won't be a test!
