Celebrity douchebags Shia LeBeouf, Ronkko & Turner have put up a website and art installation at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, which is basically a rolling feed of other douchebags repeating “He will not divide us” as a protest to the election of President Donald Trump, who took the oath and was sworn in earlier today. They plan to run it for 4 years, or until their wishes come true and democracy is thrown out in favor of some fucked up pre-school logic system where the guy you cheer for always wins and everyone gets a trophy just for showing up.

No, he will not divide us. You fuckwits are dividing us just fine without his help by protesting the democratic process.

Get over it.

Get a haircut.

Get a job.

All across Venezuela, riots are flaring up. Citizens are protesting against unemployment, inflation, and rampant crime. Threats of coups and revolution have been heard. Folks are also worried that US fascists will take over somehow. How this is worse than a Venezuelan fascist like Chavez, I fail to understand.

Why anyone should be surprised by the results of socialism-by-decree bringing unemployment, increased crime, and inflation, I also fail to understand. But folks still seem to act like it’s something new.

There is a surprising lack of media coverage on this whole affair. My suspicion, as I get out my tinfoil hat, is because the US media is controlled by socialists, and they don’t want such blatant proof of socialist failure getting continuing coverage.

What *is* happening there, is that folks are fed up, not knowing why, and are taking to the streets to vent their rage. The government, fearful of being overthrown, is hosing down, beating down, burning down, gassing down, anyone or anything that it remotely views as a threat to its wellbeing.
