    We Did It Again

    Yet again, it's our fault. How do we live with ourselves?

    According to Media Matters, right-wing media figures are having a fine old time pinning the Russian invasion of Ukraine on queers. If your head hurts trying to make the connection, I'll do it for you. Now that I've taken ibuprofen.

    President Joe Biden's repeal of the ban on trans soldiers, along with the military's diversity training and general "wokeness," have all combined to weaken American forces to the point where Russian President Vladimir Putin saw his chance to invade Russia's neighbor.

    On a Fox News show, Pete Hegseth claimed Americans have been "running around talking about genders and reparations," so "as a result, [Putin] thinks this is his moment to make an aggressive move."

    Fox contributor Lisa Boothe tweeted, "America is weak. No one is afraid of us with dementia man in the White House and our focus is flying pride flags around the world."

    Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire podcast said it was "not a coincidence that this has happened after Biden spent his first year in office focusing primarily on wokeness and intentionally making our military weaker and more feminine." He later added that Biden was attempting to “fill our military with lesbians who can’t do three pushups."

    I wouldn't want to be Walsh when some lesbian sergeant challenges him to a pushup contest.

    So thanks to integrating LGBTQ people into the military, American forces have been neutered, and Putin took advantage.

    As these rightist talking heads blame us for the invasion, Christian fundamentalists, our usual accusers, haven't joined in.

    Maybe they're just mad they didn't think of it first.

    It's Not Easy Being Green

    It comes as no surprise that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg would be a target of rightwing conspiracy theorists, considering he's a member of President Joe Biden's Cabinet, gay and smarter than all the insurrectionists put together.

    Recently Buttigieg was filmed riding a bike from his office to the White House for a Cabinet meeting. Conservative commentators and MAGA devotees shrieked that an SUV had driven him near the White House, and he'd pedaled the last feeble bit in order to get environmental cred. Buttigieg's green sheen is fake!

    The transportation secretary actually did bike the three miles there and three miles back. As Snopes noted, "Buttigieg was not caught staging a bike ride after riding in an SUV. Countless headlines, YouTube video titles, and tweets were misleading and false."

    I'm sure the weavers of conspiracies and tall tales aren't discouraged. Perhaps next we'll hear that the gay transportation secretary rides that bike around Washington singing "You can ring my bell, you can ring my bell. Ding, dong, ding, ah-ah, ring it."

    Golden Idol

    No doubt you saw pictures of that golden statue of Donald Trump on display during CPAC last week. The artist claimed the statue was made in Mexico. Now we hear it was made in China.

    Baloney. One look at that golden hue and you know it was made at the foot of Mt. Sinai, and enraged the dickens out of Charlton Heston.
