Everything Seemingly is Spinning Out of Control

Now is the time when we juxtapose, Small Dead Animals-style:

● “Seattleites celebrate Gay Pride Week by proudly beating up a Christian.”

Jim Treacher, today. (Don’t miss the close-up photo of a health-conscious leftwing mother being questioned by police with a PBR in her baby stroller’s cupholder. “Screaming at Christians is thirsty work,” quips Treacher.)

● “Conservatives Call for Capital One to Drop Baldwin Over Anti-Gay Tweets.”

Big Hollywood, today.

Update: Whoa: “Rapper Ice-T has narrated a documentary that frames the gun control argument in language the left has long avoided — gun rights are civil rights,” AWR Hawkins writes at Big Hollywood. “In other words, they are rights inherent to American citizens. Or as the HHS.gov website puts it: ‘Civil rights are personnel rights guaranteed and protected by the U.S. Constitution:'”

The documentary successfully uses the experiences of blacks during the turbulent 1950s and ’60s to show that the only thing that saved many from the machinations of the Ku Klux Klan was the Klan’s knowledge that their would-be victims could shoot back.

Astonishingly Law & Order: SVU is still on the air after 157 seasons; Dick Wolf can’t be very happy with Ice-T not toeing the NBC-Universal party line on gun control.
