The right wing has been freaking out about Trudeau ever since he ran in 2015. First they freaked out about his hair and now they want to fuck him.

they meant


quote:

"For twelve years, you have been asking: Who is John Galt? This is John Galt speaking. I am the man who loves his life. I am the man who does not sacrifice his love or his values. I am the man who has deprived you of victims and thus has destroyed your world, and if you wish to know why you are perishing-you who dread knowledge-I am the man who will now tell you." The chief engineer was the only one able to move; he ran to a television set and struggled frantically with its dials. But the screen remained empty; the speaker had not chosen to be seen. Only his voice filled the airways of the country-of the world, thought the chief engineer-sounding as if he were speaking here, in this room, not to a group, but to one man; it was not the tone of addressing a meeting, but the tone of addressing a mind.

"You have heard it said that this is an age of moral crisis. You have said it yourself, half in fear, half in hope that the words had no meaning. You have cried that man's sins are destroying the world and you have cursed human nature for its unwillingness to practice the virtues you demanded. Since virtue, to you, consists of sacrifice, you have demanded more sacrifices at every successive disaster. In the name of a return to morality, you have sacrificed all those evils which you held as the cause of your plight. You have sacrificed justice to mercy. You have sacrificed independence to unity. You have sacrificed reason to faith. You have sacrificed wealth to need. You have sacrificed self-esteem to self-denial. You have sacrificed happiness to duty.

"You have destroyed all that which you held to be evil and achieved all that which you held to be good. Why, then, do you shrink in horror from the sight of the world around you? That world is not the product of your sins, it is the product and the image of your virtues. It is your moral ideal brought into reality in its full and final perfection. You have fought for it, you have dreamed of it, and you have wished it, and I-I am the man who has granted you your wish.

"Your ideal had an implacable enemy, which your code of morality was designed to destroy. I have withdrawn that enemy. I have taken it out of your way and out of your reach. I have removed the source of all those evils you were sacrificing one by one. I have ended your battle. I have stopped your motor. I have deprived your world of man's mind.

"Men do not live by the mind, you say? I have withdrawn those who do. The mind is impotent, you say? I have withdrawn those whose mind isn't. There are values higher than the mind, you say? I have withdrawn those for whom there aren't.

"While you were dragging to your sacrificial altars the men of justice, of independence, of reason, of wealth, of self-esteem-I beat you to it, I reached them first. I told them the nature of the game you were playing and the nature of that moral code of yours, which they had been too innocently generous to grasp. I showed them the way to live by another morality-mine. It is mine that they chose to follow.

"All the men who have vanished, the men you hated, yet dreaded to lose, it is I who have taken them away from you. Do not attempt to find us. We do not choose to be found. Do not cry that it is our duty to serve you. We do not recognize such duty. Do not cry that you need us. We do not consider need a claim. Do not cry that you own us. You don't. Do not beg us to return. We are on strike, we, the men of the mind.

"We are on strike against self-immolation. We are on strike against the creed of unearned rewards and unrewarded duties. We are on strike against the dogma that the pursuit of one's happiness is evil. We are on strike against the doctrine that life is guilt.

"There is a difference between our strike and all those you've practiced for centuries: our strike consists, not of making demands, but of granting them. We are evil, according to your morality. We have chosen not to harm you any longer. We are useless, according to your economics. We have chosen not to exploit you any longer. We are dangerous and to be shackled, according to your politics. We have chosen not to endanger you, nor to wear the shackles any longer. We are only an illusion, according to your philosophy. We have chosen not to blind you any longer and have left you free to face reality-the reality you wanted, the world as you see it now, a world without mind.

"We have granted you everything you demanded of us, we who had always been the givers, but have only now understood it. We have no demands to present to you, no terms to bargain about, no compromise to reach. You have nothing to offer us. We do not need you.

"Are you now crying: No, this was not what you wanted? A mindless world of ruins was not your goal? You did not want us to leave you? You moral cannibals, I know that you've always known what it was that you wanted. But your game is...

You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You go through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast
Oh yeah
And they're gone so fast, yeah
Oh, so hold on the ones who really care
In the end they'll be the only ones there
And when you get old and start losing your hair
Can you tell me who will still care
Can you tell me who will still care?
Oh care

I was born in Tulsa and I think my neighbors might have been related to Hanson because their last name is Hanson and I've just found a meme about Mmbop on one of their Facebook profiles.

Hanfic is fanfiction written about the band Hanson. The term may have been coined by the author Meg D as early as December 1997:

The HanFic Zone is, in actuality, a Hanson Fanfic (I combined the two and, well, you know). I've been working on it since December 1997, and I'm not even close to finishing it. But If you're interested, keep on going![1]

By mid to late 1998, the term hanfic appeared to be in common usage.[2] [3]

The term hanfiction also has been used, though it is much less common.[4] [5]

'mmmbop' is a slightly uncommon way to teach 'off-meter' musical counting and notation

it's more commonly taught as "one e and [a]"
but i guess hanson's parents thought they were being super cute, or something

then those poor undoubtedly hugely religious children decided to sing a song about their school lesson for us, on the national teevee

The guy who signed Hanson started a record label just to sign the The Baha Men. Who he had also convinced to call themselves The Baha Men.

It was actually written as a collaboration by Prince and David Bowie. Unfortunately this was only discovered in Prince's archives at the point they were both dead so we'll never know.

Because it never leaves its bedroom, no one has ever seen this poster's real face.

I'm surprised more goons don't know this: after mmmbop, Hanson pretty much just immediately transformed into a fairly respected indie pop rock band
huge indie cred because there's nothing hipper than being into a band after they were famous
they had some decently successful singles ("Penny & Me", number 2 on the hot 100 singles sales in 2004) and in 2010 they made a music video where they got to hang out with Weird Al =)

AND THEN in 2020 it turned out the little one is a transphobic gun nut who supported the killing of trayvon martin, and the oldest one thinks that the government is trying to destroy christmas and thanksgiving and easter, and then they held a string of covid superspreader concerts
(oddly, the middle brother seems okay. he founded a volunteer organization to end food insecurity in oklahoma, contributed to an album promoting awareness of the tulsa race massacre, and there's a pretty persistent rumor that he loves to get fisted, so I guess he's my favorite lol who's yours?)
