From tampons to french vanilla creamer: Armed Oregon militants update their occupation wish list

Published

on

One week into their uninvited stay at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, the militia members who have occupied the park have given no indication that they will be leaving soon, posting a wish list of items they have requested from their backers.

Despite the fact that the local “safety committee” founded by leader Ammon Bundy has asked them to leave, the list — posted on social media — indicates that they are in it for the long haul, with requests for bedding, throw rugs, shelving units to store food and ice chests.

Previously, the occupiers were mocked for their requests for “snacks,” indicating a short stay, but the new list has expanded to food item staples including eggs, flour, coffee, hamburgers and hot dogs, french vanilla creamer and assorted condiments including Miracle Whip.

Apparently many of the militiamen rushed to Oregon to help hold the park without packing properly for freezing temperatures, with the list also asking for boots, socks, thermal underwear, snow pants, warm blankets and sleeping bags.

Personal care items requested include body wash, shampoo, tampons, shaving cream, razors and deodorant.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

According to a report from the Washington Times, Maryland Republicans are up in arms after an AP history teacher at a local high school used a slide to illustrate similarities between Donald Trump's policies and those of the Nazis.

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"

Stop praising anti-Trump evangelicals: Their embrace of authoritarianism is a big part of the problem

Published

on

At this critical moment for American democracy our media landscape is doing a poor job in its coverage of conservative white evangelicals. Coverage of this relatively large segment of the population is characterized by, on the one hand, effusive praise for the slightest milquetoast criticism of Donald Trump, and on the other, by a periodic parade of nearly interchangeable unfounded predictions about how evangelical youth are going to change America’s most radically right-wing demographic for the better—any day now. In the words of the great sage Bullwinkle J. Moose, “This time for sure!”
