And to think that some people claim it’s become passe to point out the power of White Privilege.


#4

I wonder if they’re gonna show “American History X” on movie night in his prison. (Do they even have movie night in prison anymore?)


#5

Wow those Nazis really have a hard time recruiting the best and the brightest, ever since that whole Holocaust thing.


#6

I thought candidate 45 said he’d pay all the legal bills?


#7

Heimbach will only spend 38 days in jail.

Given BB’s updated policy, all I can say is that I really, really hope that Heimbach doesn’t get stabbed through his eyeballs while incarcerated. I really hope that doesn’t happen.

“I could have been one of the greats. I had so much going for me. My skin color, my … my … ok, that’s all I have going for me. Join my party!”


#9

If it was his wife’s step-father’s wife, I think that’s his wife’s mother, no?


#10

Could be multiple divorces/remarriages involved. White supremacists aren’t a crowd known for their ability to maintain stable long-term family relationships.


#11

If the Heimbach affair was with anyone other than his wife’s mother, then the step-father would need to be described as Heimbach’s wife’s former step-father…right?


#12

So wait, I think what you’re all saying is that he’s his own grampa?

Many, many years ago when I was 23
I was married to a widow who was pretty as can be

This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her and soon they too were wed

This made my dad my son-in-law and really changed my life
For now my daughter was my mother 'cause she was my father’s wife

And to complicate the matter even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy

My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so he became my uncle though it mad me very sad

For if he were my uncle that would also made him brother
Of the widows grown-up daughter who was of course my stepmother

Father’s wife then had a son who kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild for he was my daughter’s son

My wife is now my mother’s mother and it makes me blue
Because although she is my wife she’s my grandmother two

Now if my wife is my grandmother then I’m her grandchild
And every time I think of it, nearly drives me wild

'Cause now I have become the strangest case you ever saw
As husband of my grandmother I am my own grandpaw

Oh I’m my own grandpaw
I’m my own grandpaw
It sounds funny I know but it really is so
I’m my own grandpaw
(Listen to this now)
I’m my own grandpaw
I’m my own grandpaw
I’m my own grandpaw

This never gets old.

I am not positive this is a legitimate statement, but there is evidence to back up your claim:


#17

That hallway of jail cells has a nice shade of green.


#18

No, that’s mother in law. Someone becomes your step-father because they marry your mother. So generally your step-father’s wife is your own mother.

(I assume this is not the case here)

A few years ago, a younger friend and I were dating a mother and a daughter. This had so many possibilities, like, I told him if we got married, he’d have to call me, “Daddy”. And it would have made a good sitcom, if older had married younger. Like the song.

Roger That!

It’s almost like they’re angry people.
