    When this happens in tour groups, people need to get out their smartphones and start broadcasting live. Get these idiots identified and fired from whatever jobs they may hold.

    Normally I’d say it’s people having a bad day, I’m not big on people ruining other people’s lives on their worst days. But this is so very different.

    It's not. If you're spewing this crap in a place where it all happened, you get what's coming to you.

    Yeah. I agree. Hence the last sentence in the post.

    Whoa, my doc never offered this explanation for miscarriages!!

    “ A Florida pastor and longtime spiritual adviser to President Trump says she was speaking in metaphor when she recently prayed in a sermon for all “satanic pregnancies” to end in miscarriage.”

    Either way, she's a despicable human being.

    Also, speaking of despicable human beings, a Liverpool venue cancelled a Franklin Graham event.

    She has unwittingly generated the need to add a new category of exceptions for abortion once the zealots get their way.

    *Taking to term presents the probable death of the mother
    *Rape and incest
    *The spawn of Satan

    Quick someone create an app that be added to ultrasound machines that will superimpose horns and a pointy tail to the fetus.

    He's not wrong. Hitler was able to harness a nation and then some. Very evil reasons, obviously. He had the same talents as someone like MLK, or JFK, he was on the wrong side of the coin. He had leadership skills left, right, and sideways, and he chose to use those skills for bad, not good.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    If he had heard of Hitler's Table Talk he might have saved himself some trouble.

    My God, this is a perfect description of Dump:

    [Hitler] was that classic German type known as Besserwisser, the know-it-all. His mind was cluttered with minor information and misinformation, about everything. I believe that one of the reasons he gathered so many flunkies around him was that his instinct told him that first-rate people couldn't possibly stomach the outpourings.

    CC was a slaver but that also reflected his time. His actions led indirectly to a genocide.

    Hitler was decidedly behind or, if the GOP remains in power, ahead of his time, and his genocide was directly due to his actions.

    CC's in White People Hell*, sure, but in a different circle.

    * Won't it be funny if hell is systemically racist? In either direction, it's a good final twist.
