I though those books were fakes set up to capitalize on Amazon’s self publishing system.
[I like this image of a cute Latinx child, but in light of recent events supported by this candidate and his fascist pals I feel a bit uneasy using it]
Denver Riggleman? They let him use his porn name on the ballot?
I did what you see there.
I see we’re starting early today:
I’m far less disturbed by the man’s personal choice of kink, than I am by the fact that some people seem to care more about that, than they do the White supremacist affiliation he has…
Is it a grammar thing?
Asking for a friend.
White supremacy is tired, Bigfoot porn is wired.
This is what happens when you tell three generations of journalists that they are in the entertainment industry.
I don’t know Melz2, I kind of felt that running as a republican meant automatically that you were a white hooded supremacist. So, it was taken for granted.
The Democratic Party’s candidate is blessed with a name that has the potential to generate some pretty interesting lawn signs.
Looks like @doctorow corrected the post.
Yeah, 'cause taking the high road and talking about issues worked so well in 2016.
That was my take on this story. Denver Riggleman? Leslie Cockburn? These names are so meta in the context of the headline.
A quick reminder of how the right wing has been acting the past week or so.
James Gunn: Made extremely inappropriate pedo joke like an eternity ago in twitter, apologizes for that joke many years after that way before it became a controversy and the right wing still got Disney to can him.
Dan Harmon: Made an extremely inappropriate sketch about a pedo like 10 years ago, apologized for it and still is getting heat from the right wing.
Riggleman: Loves a book about bigfoot violently raping teenage girls, refuses to apologize and receives radio silence from the right.
Yeah, honestly this sort of thing humanizes a candidate for me. Who gives a shit, really? And for the Dem to, as you say, kink shame him for it just feels petty and opportunistic. The white supremacy thing seems more than adequate to erode his legitimacy. That and, you know, having a platform that speaks to the people.
Call me crazy, but the “white supremacist” thing seems like the important bit, not the bigfoot erotica. That the tactic here is to engage in shaggy shaming (I’m assuming bigfoot-philes are so known), something is severely off with the values of this country.
It wouldn’t even strike me as a winning strategy these days. The '80s or '90s Republicans might have had a problem with it, but now? The Republicans have run: a serial philanderer and sex abuser who openly lusts after his own daughter, a serial pedophile, someone who covered up for a serial pedophile, and an actual pimp, yet the Republicans don’t seem the least bothered by any of them. Are conservatives really going to suddenly say, “Yeah, those guys are fine, but someone talking about fucking bigfoots…!?”
Yeah, but the right’s outrage was entirely disingenuous in those other cases. It’s not even hypocrisy when they’re openly cynically weaponizing faux-outrage.
Yeti, he persisted.
I think it bears remarking on, however, just so it doesn’t become normalised.
@FGD135, grrrrr. That photo caption makes me grind my gears. It sould read, “I think you’re some kind of deviant prevert.”
Possibly the best film ever
Writing a book suggesting women are attracted to giant, hairy creatures that need a Long censorship box to hide their junk doesn’t say much for his attitude about women…or rather says a whole lot about it in a really poor light.
