“Othering” and disrespect - “it’s two hates in one!”

When you try to emulate the kumquat-faced jackass-o-lantern but it just comes across as self-debasing desperation.

Kamala is also a Finnish word and it means horrible. But our media hasn’t been mocking the name. We are generally quite polite. Mocking your opponent is quite low way of making speeches. So the current US politics seem very weird to us.

And the name is not from Finland. It’s Sanskrit and means lotus. It’s also the nickname for the goddess Lakshmi, who represents good luck and beauty. So it doesn’t matter if in Swahili the name means pig poop. That wasn’t the origin. Happy that the Fins have not debased themselves with that low level of discourse.

Thanks, Senator, but we already know that the GOP is the party of childish bullies.

I’m consistently impressed with the civility that Republican politicians demonstrate to the public.

Here’s David Perdue stealing a student’s cell phone to avoid answering a question about voting rights:

And here he is getting caught using anti Semitic tropes to doctor an image of his political opponent:

And here’s a overview of his predictably awful political positions

So much civility! Such a classy gentleman!

Chickenshits with the same last name as a frozen chicken company should probably STFU when it comes to name-based mockery…
…I mean, aside from the obvious reason that a fucking senator should be too mature to engage in conduct that would get an 8 year old sent to the principal’s office.

“Perdue” is French, meaning lost, hopeless, confused, non-returnable, etc.

“Perdue. That’s a French name isn’t it, senator?”

Why did we ever let Reconstruction end? Georgia, by rights, should still be under conservatorship.

Probably in the same vein that they ritually misuse “Democrat/Democratic”.
Once the tribe picks this up, it will become a standard derogation.

Mocking Harris’s name is probably a GOP talking point. He likely just forgot the first time and subsequently overdid it to make up since the Party is watching.

They pretended to not be able to pronounce Rob? Or was it Beschizza?

Here’s to hoping that he can keep mocking her name throughout her imminent vice-Presidency and soon to happen Presidency.

And that he will have to do so as a private citizen in a few weeks as he watches Ossoff take the senate seat.

Apparently the Perdue chicken folks are out reminding people that he is not related to them.
