Iím sure it will be the same for Trump, who lives on KFC and Big Macs, or Steve Bannon who looks like the result of an intimate encounter between syphilis and leprosy.

Itís going to be hilarious when Alex Jones kicks the bucket. No matter how he goes the tinfoil hat people will be foaming at the mouth.

300,000 unique daily visitors, and it's dropped a lot since the tail-end of last year.  Not to mention the White House resident conspiracy theorists also seem to align with whatever nonsense he is spewing this week (Qanon, "the storm", #releasethememo, the impending Deep State coup etc).

You mean the Trump sons? They tweet about "deep state" shit all the time.

What prompted you to check the church out QG?

In August the Nazis had a rally on Boston Common and I burned myself all the way out screaming at elected officials to jump on the fire. At the event, I was presented with the opportunity to punch a Nazi and chose not to (for what I believe are good reasons that still keep in line with my general "punch the fucking Nazis" political stance). There were 40,000 people and it was tense and there were fights and I needed to process that shit, and the church is right outside the office building where we rent space, and they put up a sign about having a kind of "emergency" service/emotional support thing with all the Nazi shit going on. I'd seen the new Reverend at our local FUCK THE NAZIS IN PRINCIPAL event, he seemed like a good guy and I was falling down pretty hard, so I went.


This past Sunday, he let us know that his partner's father killed himself, and it's a hard thing to deal with. I went to his office hours and gave him some of the stuff I worked up for Holy Nonsense and another project I'm working on, because dealing with grief and depression is kinda all I do some days, and if I'm gonna sit here being a sadsack I'd better be able to sublimate SOME of that shit into something useful for another human.

I like to believe people like yourself outnumber the assholes. I really hope Iím right.

I think I may go check out our local UU church.

Not directed at you, really.  Sorry if it came off that way.  More directed at the entire thing.

No no, I only briefly heard about it on Twitter. The report I saw just said it happened, didnít mention casualties. As much as I like a good laugh I donít mean to make fun of people who died.

The reactions from the lunatic fringe though are saddening. I get that this is the fringe vox turned up to 11, but itís weird to think Alex Jonesí reach is that far.

Look at me, being all snowflake-ish, because at least one person in the truck died, and the other two aren't far behind.

Oh really? Erk... didnít hear that part. That makes the above joke in pretty bad taste. Well it already was, but moreso now.

Doesnít change the tinfoil hat people being all tinfoil hat of course.

Carry on!

Track service was delayed as clean up crews had considerable difficulty differentiating between the two cargos.

I kid, I kid.

But holy crap you should see the comments on Twitter. Itís a deep state coup, folks!!

Naw.

Would what Shandor suggests even result in a single race? With the distance involved across the globe, along with certain areas being less accessible wouldnít there always be certain variations?
