    During the show, Chez referred to something he wrote regarding Sanders fans bailing on him at the first hint of having to compromise. I found it, and it’s absolutely brilliant.

  • Well I guess occupying the Bird Refuge wasn’t enough. Now they’re harrassing the sanctuary employees…..–intimidation-in-oregon-230339291.html

    Another reason to throw their asses in jail. Good.

    Suggested theme song for these patriots:

    A deployment? Oy.

    The small unit riverine craft (SURC) has a crew of 2 and can carry up to 16. According to BBC News, the boats had some sort of mechanical failure and drifted into Iranian waters, where they were intercepted by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard who accused the sailors of “snooping” in Iranian waters. My sense is that the Revolutionary Guard does not, institutionally, care much for the Iranian nuclear accord and would be more than happy to scuttle it with antics like this. It will be interesting to see how hard the Iranian government pushes for the release of the sailors and boats.

    The Bureau of Land Management really had no choice but to back off in 2014; otherwise, the carnage would have been devastating. However, as soon as the armed imbeciles dispersed, the FBI should have been arresting the participants.

    The Battle of the Gift Shop needs to end that way, with these fat, middle-aged cosplayers wandering away and being arrested individually.

    I wholeheartedly agree: there need to be arrests. Otherwise, this sort of thing will continue to happen. However, trying to “get them out now” would lead to bloodshed and that would empower the loons more than mere arrests. They can’t be given any claim to martyrdom.

    As I said at The Daily Banter, I wasn’t a David Bowie fan, per se, but I admired his refusal to make the same record twice, and the fact that he did what he did in an industry that doesn’t particularly care about music or personal expression. I’m not sure if he was one-of-a-kind, but he came damned close.

    “That’s it, there’s your porn movie.” I have no idea why I found that so funny, Chez, but kudos.

    The only way John Ritzheimer and his playmates could do good for the country would be to surrender peacefully and take their (legal) lumps. Instead, they’ll sit around, freezing their goolies off and honking on about freedumb and liburtee, wasting the time and resources of everyone from the residents of Harney County to the FBI.

    Ritzheimer isn’t the most self-aware human being, is he?

    Aren’t Kim Davis’s 15 minutes over yet?

    The funny think about that PolitiFact list is that the cause of almost every item on it is outside the control of any President.

    Bernie Sanders isn’t wrong about the economy and economic inequality, but most people in this country simply don’t care; or, rather, they’ve been convinced that (a) inequality is natural, and (b) the only way to reduce inequality is by taking from them and giving to those people.

    I’m not sure Sanders has it in him to do the dealmaking and compromising a President has to do, even if he somehow managed to square the campaign-finance circle. He would be far more influential as an outsider than as President, precisely because he’d be free of the necessity to compromise. Maybe he should angle for a position as Economy Czar in a Hillary Clinton administration (listen carefully and you’ll hear wingnut heads exploding over the prospect).

    (Bob, you missed Chez’s fucking at 49:20. First miss of 2016.)

      Bernie Sanders’ supporters have adopted the Underpants Gnomes philosophy of American politics.

      – Elect Bernie Sanders president.

      – DuuuUUUuuuUUUuuuUUUuuuUUUh.


      • muselet

        Well, maybe.

        Remember the PUMAs? The women who were so enraged! the Democrats nominated a black man in 2008 instead of Hillary Clinton that they would sit out the election or vote R for the first time in their lives! to show the Democratic Party it should never listen to anyone else but them? The twelve of them made a lot of noise and our glorious news media ate the story up with a spoon, but come election time, their supposed mass movement of millions of angry women amounted to a rounding error at most.

        I’m more than half-convinced the PUMAs were an attempt by Rs to ratfuck the Ds. I’ve yet to be convinced the noisiest Sandernistas aren’t also Rs trying to ratfuck the Ds.

        Until we’re certain who’s making the loudest noise, let’s not get carried away.


        • Victor the Crab

          I wish I was as confident as you. But these BernieBums are the kind of dumbfucks that have screwed America over in the past with their nihilistic vision that only the purest of liberals should serve the public interest. That’s what got us Dubya in 2000 and what got us the gerrymandered districts in 2010.

          And this is what I fear is what’s starting to unfold right now. There’s no fucking way Bernie Sanders can beat a Republican in November – even if he goes up against a Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. He’s going to be portrayed as an angry old Jewish atheist who wants to create a Lenin/Trotsky vision of America to the millions of undecided. This country – FUCK, the entire planet – can’t afford this risk. But these retards (yes, I used the “R” word on these people), think it will be smooth sailing if Sanders gets the nomination.

          With enemies like this, the right doesn’t need friends.

  • HilaryB

    I want a life-sized poster of Chez if you reach your goal! 😉
    Ritzheimer didn’t specify what kind of snacks he wanted. Eat the dicks, Jon, eat ’em.

  • Victor the Crab

    Chez, your Banter article about Ritzheimer’s hissy fit has brought out a lot of eyeballs. And a lot of comments. The vast majority of whom are enjoying the schadenfreude at Ritzheimer’s expense. The idiots that were upset by this are few and far between. But one that stands out is Matt Drudge, who took time out from his usual poo flinging to comment. Wear it with pride, Chez.

    I’m tempted to say people should protest the so called militia outside the Malheur Wildlife Refuge with posters and chants and just flat out mockery. But they would probably have a greater chance of being arrested the militia guys and would probably be accosted by militia supporters. That dynamic is the most frustrating part. That these men behave in this ridiculous and criminal manner and yet are still treated with kid gloves for fear of another Waco or Ruby Ridge.

    Which I understand and I will respect if it avoids violence. But at some point these men must be arrested and prosecuted.
