Sometimes, it is amusing to guess whether it was Donald Trump who said a thing, or some other person or entity.

The Rwandan genocide was the systematic killing of the minority Tutsi ethnic group, along with political opponents of the Hutu majority, in 1994. Roughly 800,000 were killed over 100 days, an overall rate of extermination more rapid than the Holocaust or any other recorded genocide. Popular radio programs in Rwanda were indispensable to orchestrating the slaughter. Hutus listened daily to talk of lurid atrocities allegedly committed by Tutsis; they heard that Tutsis were evil, were vermin. These broadcasts softened the taboo against murder by portraying Tutsis as subhuman or demonic. The signal to begin the killing was given on these radio broadcasts.

Donald Trump is the president of the United States.

WHO SAID IT: Donald Trump or Rwandan Hate Radio?

1. “He would see the ten or so corpses of innocent people laying… in any case, nobody can justify it.”

2. “There is the case of [a man] who was brutally beaten and left to bleed to death in his home.”

3. “In early 1991, they killed citizens using knives.”

4. “They continue to kill citizens and hide their dead bodies, so people see much blood but no corpses.”

5. “The woman was attacked. Three women were attacked.”

6. “And these are the animals that we’ve been protecting for so long.”

7. “A great woman, according to everybody that knew her, was sexually assaulted and beaten to death with a hammer.”

8. “They are the enemies of the country, there is no question of negotiating with them.”

9. “People cannot invade our country instead of coming in peace. They steal our country, they destroy it.”

10. “Thank you to [the] great people that come in and grab the thugs and throw them the hell out. We are liberating our towns and we are liberating our cities.”

11. “They don’t want to use guns because it’s too fast and it’s not painful enough.”

12. “Those released include individuals convicted of killings, sexual assaults, and some of the most heinous crimes imaginable.”

Guys, it's been one more shit day in a shit week in the fifth shit month of another shit Trump year. Which is why I need to remind you that it's not ALL shit out there! Oh, sure, it's MOSTLY shit, but you know what isn't shit? YR WONKETTE, and the strange community of strange internet people who have made getting through all this shit a bit more tolerable, that's who and what. Which is why you should give us money, so we can keep whanging away at the walls of shit with our shovels and laughing at the shit getting all over, because one of these days we will get it all cleaned up or at least not be up to our waists in shit, and we can all laugh about what a crazy fight it was, as St. Molly Ivins always kept reminding us.

In case you're new here, let me just remind you that Wonkette literally got me, Yr Dok Zoom, out of what wasn't quite poverty, but was pretty much paycheck-to-paycheck desperation. I started reading the site shortly before Barack Obama was elected, began commenting sometime in his first term, and submitted a story tip to Rebecca a few months after she bought the site for 47 dollars and a sandwich (I now understand it was a bit more than that). It was Memorial Day 2012, and she wrote back she was busy with some "stupid thing I have to do for some muneez," but would I like to try writing a blog post myself? "I understand if you say FUCK NO. But maybe you are thinking FUCK YES?" And then she warned me she paid only in Ameros. I did, the post was forgettable but OK, and then I wrote a thing (borrowed from now long-lost comments) that went semi-viral, and suddenly I was that hottest thing in publishing, a freelancer!

In less than a year, Rebecca asked you all to buy me to be your very own pet blogger, and my life suddenly became incredibly good, like as good as an Abba song. It's as good as "Dancing Queen." Thanks to the timing of the whole thing (and to Barry Obama and Nancy Pelosi), I actually had health insurance for the first time in years, a not inconsiderable thing. And you had an Editrix who was not working 12 hour days six and a half days a week and drinking too much from stress. Your continued donations helped hire Evan full time and Robyn and Bianca part time and a whole raft of freelancers, and now Rebecca is down to eight-hour days, five and a half days a week, and drinking because there's a madman in the White House and everything's terrible.

There is a very normal article circulating on the internet right now by a fella named Don Boys (that's not the joke, the jokes are coming), who is both an insane batshit preacher, and also an insane batshit former member of the Indiana House of Representatives. (Also sometimes he blogs at the Daily Caller about how Mike Pence really went balls deep into the gay agenda when he swore in that insane batshit gay guy Rick Grenell as America's ambassador to Germany.)

This article, of course, is about Pete Buttigieg, because what are anti-gay buffoons obsessed with right now? Pete Buttigieg. Boys (still his name) is primarily concerned not with the simple fact that Buttigieg is gay, but with how gay Buttigieg really is. IN THE SEX WAY!

Well, Don, since you asked!

Shall we dive into this thing without the proper prophylactics? We shall.
