I Gathered Stories of People Transformed by Fox News

ttaf supporter in my life:  I will always grieve that you let this evil entity in your life to warp your faith and your beliefs.

No matter where the stories came from they all featured a few familiar beats: A loved one seemed to have changed over time. Maybe that person was already somewhat conservative to start. Maybe they were apolitical. But at one point or another, they sat down in front of Fox News, found some kind of deep, addictive comfort in the anger and paranoia, and became a different person — someone difficult, if not impossible, to spend time with. The fallout led to failed marriages and estranged parental relationships. For at least one person, it marks the final memory he’ll ever have of his father: “When I found my dad dead in his armchair, fucking Fox News was on the TV,” this reader told me. “It’s likely the last thing he saw. I hate what that channel and conservative talk radio did to my funny, compassionate dad. He spent the last years of his life increasingly angry, bigoted, and paranoid.”

A Person You Flee At Parties | David Bentley Hart | First Things

https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2011/05/a-person-you-flee-at-parties

Remember, ttaf supporter, when I told you about how ttaf is a monstrous thing…

But your false teachers have you hoodwinked, and now you basically worship the devil

Like Clouds, Like Shadows

I had it all together
rows and blocks
neat and trimmed
even if they sat
ragged round the edges
like clouds, like shadows

and then artesian wells
of soul, of spirit
invaded, armies
of color riotous
rejoicing round
those edges ragged

like clouds, like shadows
welled up out of
nowhere

and I am

now here

Supporter of ttaf, you would have loved Hitler

Well, happy horseshit for you, ttaf supporter and lover of all your lying false prophets on tv and radio…this is you.  You believe this…and it is why I keep my distance, for how can I trust you?

A Sociologist Examines the “White Fragility” That Prevents White Americans from Confronting Racism | The New Yorker

If you are white, and you also think you are open-minded and non racist, this is must reading for you.

Oh by the way…it works the same way with gender orientation, too.

“…The value in “White Fragility” lies in its methodical, irrefutable exposure of racism in thought and action, and its call for humility and vigilance. Combatting one’s inner voices of racial prejudice, sneaky and, at times, irresistibly persuasive, is a life’s work. For all the paranoid American theories of being “red-pilled,” of awakening into a many-tentacled liberal/feminist/Jewish conspiracy, the most corrosive force, the ectoplasm infusing itself invisibly through media and culture and politics, is white supremacy.

“That’s from a white progressive perspective, of course. The conspiracy of racism is hardly invisible to people of color, many of whom, I suspect, could have written this book in their sleep.”

Furia Says Keep Your Distance

That’s close enough.
Do not cross my boundaries.
You are not welcome any closer.


“…or if they masquerade as friends to draw close,
sidling up so near to shove those pills dry
down our throats in rough and rooting
thrusting fingers ripping without a
drink to help them go down and
we, our own spoonful of sugar…
until we lie in thrall to
those fell jailers…”

GOP Jesus by @frienddogstudios

Hey ttaf supporter, you in my life that every single time I think about the fact that you support this antichrist monster I want to throw up, here is your gospel for you!

THIS IS THE SHIT YOU BELIEVE NOW.  And all your tv preachers and charlatans are squeegeeing this into your ears and eyes until your heart is FULL of this shit.

You are awful.

Just Because She Could

I sat out one summer morn
I saw the wind gather her horn
and blow the fleecy clouds around
just because she could

I saw the redwing blackbird chase
those cotton clouds of wind and lace
until she caught them in her snoot
just because she could

And tufts collected in her beak
away to nest she dove, did streak
her home composed of earth and clouds
just because she could
