Nevermind locking him up. The problem in America is far greater.

We need to stage a coup to overthrow the government and install puppets more amendable to our version of freedom.

It's the American way.

Filthy. Disgraceful. Indecent. Vulgar. That is what the powerful and their enablers will call you if you dare poke them in the eye by actually doing what you were invited to do — roast the rich and powerful at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner — rather than what women are expected to do from birth: play nice.

On April 28, comedian Michelle Wolf let loose a bipartisan evisceration on beltway politicians and media (tellingly, the notoriously thin-skinned President Donald Trump did not attend). After peppering her speech with several swear words as well as references to sex acts and genitalia, Wolf was criticized by an uneasy alliance of both supposedly free-speech obsessed conservatives and supposedly free-speech obsessed journalists. The hypocrisy was hard to miss.

“I think sometimes they look at a woman and they think ‘Oh, she'll be nice,’ and if you've seen any of my comedy you know that I don't — I'm not,” Wolf told NPR after the event. “I think they still have preconceived notions of how women will present themselves and I don't fit in that box.”

It is instructive that in the era of Trump — a man who has torpedoed the notion of civility — women are still expected to be polite and demure. “She did not cater to the room” was an actual criticism of her performance.

At a time when the word “resistance” has been sanitized and neutered, a “vulgar” Wolf understood the power of words and used them to deliver a knockout punch to a crowd more accustomed to being comfortable. As one commentator put it: “She wanted to napalm the room and she did. Unapologetically.”

That is the power of profanity — and why it is important for women to not shy away from it. Indeed, whenever I stand at a podium to give a lecture, I begin with my declaration of faith: “F**k the patriarchy.” Whether I am lecturing on feminism in Lahore, Pakistan or Dublin, Ireland or Johannesburg, South Africa or New York City, my declaration never changes.

I could say “dismantle the patriarchy” but I don’t because I am a woman; a woman of color; a Muslim woman. And I am not supposed to say f**k.

The cowards at the Correspondent's Dinner have actually decided they're not having a comedian roast this year.

Margaret Atwood warned that the U.S. will face a French Revolution-type event if the political system is not changed.

The United States will face its own “French Revolution” without significant changes to the current political system, author Margaret Atwood said last week.

The 79-year-old writer of the dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale pointed to numerous factors contributing to inequality in the U.S., warning that left unchecked, such inequality would lead to an event similar to the revolution in 18th century France that saw the ousting of the ruling class.

Via The Independent:

“There are other factors in this country that make for quite a lot of inequality, so let’s talk about the healthcare system, let’s talk about incarceration policies and let’s talk about the big split between very, very rich people and everybody else,” she said, speaking at Equality Now’s Make Equality Reality Gala in Los Angeles on Monday.

“So the dangers in this country have to do with not just gender inequality but also class and race and wealth. So you cannot go on indefinitely having lawmakers write and enact laws that make them richer.

“You just can’t go on with this forever, you’re going to get the French Revolution if you go on with that too long.”

Press punches ”fake news” screamer Trump in the face:
This too, thanks to Trump:
(CNN)Time magazine has chosen "The Guardians," a group of journalists who have been targeted for their work, as Person of the Year.

A series of four black-and-white covers highlights what the magazine calls "the War on Truth."

The group includes Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post contributor who was killed at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul in October. This is the first time that a Person of the Year is a deceased person.

I doubt Ms Atwood is right. Not in a country where her works are too popular and that actually elected the likes of Frump to the white house... the counter revolutionary folk are too many and better armed than those who would revolt.

I think Ms. Atwood has slightly exaggerated the situation.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I don't think Mrs Atwood is advocating for violence, on the contrary, and I hope we don't see any more violence or vandalism anywhere!

Possibly, or not, Frump getting where he is shows that Merkin society has grown dangerously dysfunctional... fortunately, the regressive, overarmed side is currently ascendant, which yet prevents large scale violence, let's wait and see.
