In other news, a white supremacist, shitposting internet troll opened fire on a Mosque in New Zealand last night, killing 49 and wounding at least 48 others. The shooter live-streamed his attack.

Meanwhile, special prosecutors Robert Mueller has asked a court to delay sentencing for Paul Manafort's deputy Rick Gates because Gates is still singing for him. The investigation is ongoing.

Finally, the Trump regime is revoking visas from International Criminal Court staff involved in investigating Americans who may have committed crimes in Afghanistan.

The United States will repeal or deny visas to International Criminal Court (ICC) staff seeking to investigate Americans in Afghanistan or elsewhere and may take similar action to protect Israelis or other allied forces from prosecution, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday.

The unprecedented move came amid a pending request by the ICC prosecutor's office to open a probe into possible war crimes by Afghan or U.S. personnel in Afghanistan and after national security adviser John Bolton, a vehement critic of the court, threatened punitive action in September.

I lost several hours this afternoon due to an expected family function, so forgive the light posting. Have a good weekend.

    Forty eight of our fellow human beings have been slaughtered and another 49 wounded because a gullible, bigoted fool allowed himself to get cranked up by American Nazi conmen pushing the pseudo sociological snake oil known as “white genocide.” Every grifter selling this swill and their enablers in the conservative media belong in Hell with broken backs.

    On a somewhat more positive note, here’s a valuable lesson on the history of “white genocide” conspiracy theories from Adam Serwer. It’s a good read.

    The week has ended. Go in peace. Lord knows, we could all use some.

    Words fail. The loss of people simply going about their day in peace and worship because of these toxic motherfuckers is just too much to bear. “Shitposting white supremacist internet trolls” doesn’t begin to describe these loathsome creatures and the poisonous fever swamps they dwell in. Enjoy your weekend. I need a stiff drink.
