The Water Cooler Open Thread- July 17, 2018: Yep, More Culture War Insanity

Welcome to another edition of Tuesday’s Redstate’s Water Cooler dedicated to the banality of the culture wars and Leftist rage.  Come join me in a trip into derangement.


Jerk of the Week

It’s been awhile since we heard from this harpy and charter member of the Unfunny Comedienne Hall of Fame, Chelsea Handler.  But a woke social justice warrior love them some Twitter:

Sarah Huckabee was kicked out of a restaurant, Kellyanne Conway was yelled at in a grocery store, and Stephen Miller was cussed out by a bartender… Sounds like you guys are the ones who’d benefit from being held in cages.

Well, I told you she wasn’t funny.  I guess we should be thankful she didn’t suggest a 12-year-old be caged with pedophiles or anyone stripped naked in a cage and poked with sticks.  So I guess we should count this as “civility” these days.

The Waters Effect

Apparently taking a cue from the mad wigged queen of Democrats, Maxine Waters, we have two incidents of derangement to report.  The first involved Steve Bannon who was apparently accosted by some woke individual while he perused the shelves of a Richmond bookstore.  The incident caused the owner to call the police.

Not to be outdone, Mitch McConnell was likewise accosted by a group outside a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.  At least no police were called as they threatened to vote him out of office after threatening him with the fact they knew where he lived.

No peace for the diner or book buyer it seems.


The Travails of Antman and the Wasp

Some poor soul over at Daily Beast has found something to rail against regarding the new Marvel outing,  Antman and the Wasp.   I will let her words say it all:

With widespread discussions about who gets to tell stories about marginalized communities, it remains rare to see characters with disabilities in mass-market media. Marvel’s latest, Ant-Man and the Wasp, could have been incredibly forward-thinking with its introduction of Ava, played by Hannah John-Kamen, a woman of color dealing with chronic pain. Unfortunately, short-sighted filmmakers hamper this depiction which could have furthered the conversation on race and disability with ableistic tropes, including the desire for a miraculous cure.

Let me put this in perspective.  The character to which this person refers suffers from “ Quantumly forced unstable cells with dimensional phasing.”  This is something that does not exist. Hence, they are protesting about a non-existent disability which sort of says it all.

Perhaps We Need a Foreign Invasion

With the Left running out of reasons to take down Trump, Democratic candidate Jeramy Anderson, a Mississippi state legislator running for US Congress this year came up with a unique idea. His communications secretary tweeted out:


Maybe a foreign country will invade us to implement regime change.

To date, Anderson has not disavowed the statement.  So Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, the Emoluments Clause, the 25th Amendment, the #Resistance, and manufactured crises haven’t done the job.  I suspect Canadian tanks on the border any day now. 

When They Go Low, We Go High… With Poop

Bill Kovacs is an Arizona Democrat running for Congress.  In response to Trump’s questioning of Elizabeth Warren’s alleged Native American lineage and challenging her to a DNA test (with a $1 million award), Kovacs tweeted out that a DNA test on Trump would reveal 100% poop in his lineage.  Seriously…he even used the turd icon.  

The Last Word on Poop

Conservative commentator Michael Cernovich recently tweeted out that a 20-pound bag of human feces was discovered on the streets of San Francisco, followed by another that a major medical convention decided to move out of San Francisco because of, among other things, the presence of pounds of human feces on the streets.

Shaun King, a Black Lives Matter activist who looks suspiciously white (probably because he is), had weighed in on the subject also complaining that it is only white people complaining about 20 pounds of human excrement on city streets.


A councilman in Seattle implied that cleaning human feces and urine off the sidewalk in front of the Kings County courthouse was racist.  So there it is, folks. Avoiding human excrement is a white thing and that makes you a racist!

Save the Coral Reefs!!  Get Skin Cancer!!!

The state of Hawaii just banned the sale of certain sunscreens that contain certain chemicals because said chemicals may  cause damage to coral reefs.  Mind you, there is no evidence that they do cause damage.  This seems to be a new trend among liberals- banning things before you know they even cause damage.  I mean, how much sunscreen are tourists slapping on their bodies in Hawaii anyway to warrant such an action?  Sunscreen today, speech tomorrow… it’s a very slippery slope.

From wishes of foreign invasions to imaginary diseases in movies to debates over turds to the controversial subject of sunscreen use, that’s it for this week.  Be sure to check back next week for more fun from the culture wars.
