Derps, Doofuses, and Unhinged Right Wingers

Someone very dear to me is in the Navy, so this story interested me.

The Navy, understands that a fit military is a good thing for America, and it is being pro-active in making sure that one way our service men and women achieve fitness is by eating well.

"Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced a host of sweeping changes in May that will affect everything from promotions and training to uniforms and fitness. As part of that, he has set his sights on a well-balanced diet, which he calls “the foundation of a healthy lifestyle” that will provide capable warfighters and lower medical costs. 

 Mabus touted the SEALs’ “Fuel to Fight” program as an example. It increases the availability of lean-proteins, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates to fuel, rather than feed, the warfighter."

However, because somewhere during the reporting of this story, Michelle Obama's name came up, the hysterical low-information Derps, aka Goopers, immediately and without any facts, criticized the FLOTUS for interfering with how the Navy feeds its men and women.

"Some current and former sailors took to the NavyTimes Facebook page saying it sounded like something that would be done by Michelle Obama. One conservative blog picked up on that, slapped on the sensationalist headline that Michelle was taking food away from sailors, with only one small disclaimer at the end of the article: 

While Michelle may not have been directly involved in the decision, it’s clear that her over-zealous desire to force the entire country to be nutritious has created a culture among the federal bureaucracy that seeks to do just that — even at the expense of our troops."

Michelle Obama had nothing to do with the Navy's decision to eliminate fried food for healthier fare, but in the fever swamp of their fact-free minds, that doesn't matter.  

This poutrage from the right isn't new, they've been slandering the FLOTUS and the POTUS since January 20, 2009. But now, they're calling for the assassination of Mrs. Obama and her family over nothing more than a rumor they heard, which they immediately connected to Mrs. Obama.

We'll always have these idiots among us.  

And they'll even support a hare-brained doofus for preznit

Why is this even news? When they're not calling the Obamas and the Clintons a crime syndicate, they're slobbering to each other about how America isn't the America they once knew.

That's right. And thank God it isn't The America they once knew is changing, becoming more progressive and diverse (they don't like progressive or diversity), and more tolerant (they don't like tolerance either).

Gays achieving equal rights was the last straw for them, they outraged that their conservative supreme court ruled against their bigotry and hopes for a defeated Obamacare.

Maybe we should try to be kind to the poor defeated souls. Maybe we should understand why they're so attracted to a jerk like Trump. He's the only one who's be able to act like a nincompoop and rise in the polls. Remember what happened to the other nincompoop candidates from the last presidential election? Let the depressed Trump-lovers have their moment. Let them believe Trump will deliver them to the promise land. It's the least we can do for the poor dears.

Wrath of the Titans? Nah.

More like Wrath of the WATB's.

Why is it a bad thing to help our military eat healthy?

Who they want to cook for the Navy, Paula Deen. She fries everything in tubs of butter and pounds of sugar. And then devours it herself.

Now he's threatening to go 3rd party.
That would pretty much cinch the election for Clinton. Let's watch Koch Walker fight a battle on two fronts. The clown car made Romney come out as a reactionary. This should be epic.

More popcorn?

I hope there're enough people/sycophants around tRump to keep telling him what a great leader who tells it like it is he is. He should have people fawning over him and feeding his outsized ego 24/7 so that he'll never forget that he's YOOOOOGE, electable, and the best politician to take America back! We really want tRump and the Baggers who support him to believe this so that he will run as a third party if the RNC doesn't "respect" him enough.

We've got news for Rubio: Calling the POTUS "classless" is the supreme mark of a classless dolt.

WASHINGTON -- Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Wednesday that we ought to phase out Medicare, the federal program that provides health insurance to Americans once they're 65.

Trump's looking better and better.

He may be the most sane of the bunch. This is a serious group of goobers.

Shaw Kenawe said...

John (Jeb!) Bush wants Americans to work more and if they do that, he'll phase out Medicare.

That's a winning platform, isn't it?

I wonder if the Klintoons put him up to saying that, since a lot of the Baggers/conservatives/libertarians believe anything rotten in the GOP is because: Hitlery!
