Thanks for rebooting the thread Bird. I like the new rule.

Can you link the sister thread, Post Good Tweets, in the OP please? Just to direct people there for Not-Idiots on Social Media content. And to give me a quick reference because I accidentally unbookmarked it twice

I choose to believe that these things follow hanky code protocol. If you show the striped flag hanging out of your left pocket, that means you're a top/giver of whatever the color code means; your right pocket means bottom/receiver. So having, say, the red striped flag sticker on the right side of your bumper means you're totally into being carried out of burning buildings.

Purple stripe in right picket means you like to be escorted out of mall food courts

Yes, Dawkins, I'm sure "the best immunologist you know" is worried about Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey and a horde of Facebook wine moms over mass human deaths, you utter fuckwit.

Yes everyone knows Richard "no one will ever own me" Dawkins is a dipshit but you are vastly underestimating
A: The influence and damage anti-vaxxers are capable of and have already done to society thus far.
B: The importance of rigorous medical testing.

For gently caress's sake, I'm not advocating relaxing safety standards for vaccines, I'm dunking on Dawkins because his made-up conversation put publicity over human lives.

This was unironically shared by my Christian aunt on Facebook. There's something about it that's cracking me up. I think the "Sunday's comin'!" gives it shitpost energy that I don't expect from what I assume is supposed to be a sincere Easter meme?

Does anybody know anything about this? I distrust any video that's spread around claiming to expose A Horrible Truth so I haven't watched more than five minutes of it, is it more conspiracy theory bullshit?

I trust goons more than I do a Google search

It's looney right wing conspiracy nonsense, yes.

It was organized and promoted by discredited/disgraced former medical professionals and anti-vaccine dipshits. It's so egregious that even YouTube is trying very hard to make sure it doesn't stay on their servers.

I think you'll find children are now children until their parents die or disown them, and cannot be allowed individual rights outside their stifling parentage. The idea of thinking autonomous adults was for the past, anyone born since these old crusty motherfuckers could form cogent thoughts will never count as a rational developed human in their eyes.

Remember when either Don Jr. or Eric Trump (can't remember which) received a lot of criticism for doing something and the right wing media machine started pushing the "Leave him alone he's just a kid!" narrative?

He also has something about trans people being also from Venus in case anyone was wondering since trans people do something called postmodernism that's based purely on emotion and my brain is broken from trying to translate all of this idiocy

When you hear/read "postmodernism" from a right wing thinkpiece it's a dog whistle for "cultural Marxism" which in turn is a dog whistle for "the ridiculous leftist notion that (group) should be treated with respect and not discriminated against."

Replace "group" with any bogeyman du jour but it often refers to LGBTQ people.

Wow this just ascended from "incredibly dumb" to "extremely good." Context matters!
