Well, that didn't take long...

Fucktards Ahoy!

It's but a week and a bit since our friends to the south screwed up and put GWB back in power, but already the trained internet detectives from the Oi! Thump! pool have tracked down the inevitable next step. Yup, it's people who want to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the American Constitution (that's the one that forces people like GWB to eventually retire). And, here they are!

It's from the website of one of those groups that likes to go around branding anyone who disagrees with them a traitor. This lot are a bit more violence-minded than the rest (they have a really nasty tar-and-feather fetish), but that's really the only difference. Scum, in short. We'll be keeping an eye on them, and bringing you more tales of idiocy as they occur.

Oi Thump! Official Response to the U.S. Election

Ya know, I've spent a fair chunk of the last couple of years defending the U.S. during arguments with folks trying to put that country down. "Yeah," I'd say, "They're run by a real piece of shit, but it's not like he was actually elected properly." Fuck, I even felt embarassed when people booed the American national anthem. But that's all over. America, you really shit the bed on this one. You've gone and let foaming religious fundamentalists, greedy sneering media personalities, and people whose only way of interacting with other people is to try to frighten them get together and take over the most powerful government on the planet. Oh, and we can throw in the multinational corporations as well. You let them win. Now, if you actually voted for those fuckers, you're probably illiterate, so it's unlikely that you're reading this. No, this is for the rest of you. It's time for you to actually do something. Have a riot, try to impeach the dickwad, I don't care. But you'd better do something that shows that you have at least a vestigal spine, and do it fast, because otherwise you're going to find yourselves living back in medieval times, and dragging the rest of us down with you, and that's if we're all very lucky. Good luck, but you've got a hell of a mess, and I'm not drowning in optimism here.
