Uganda Knuckles is just new-school blackface comedy minstrel bullshit, don't @ me. · 3:12am Jan 24th, 2018

Big googly eyes and huge lips were a staple of racist caricatures of black people. I imagine most people will pretend it isn't, but as a thought exercise, just google "racist caricatures" and you'll see the ancestors of the uganda knuckles shit that the internet is patting itself on the back over.

Challenge for white people: make an actually funny original meme that isn't just Stepin Fetchit or Mammy Jemima, but with a hip new millennial internet flavor.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS. IT IS NOW SAFE TO TURN OFF YOUR UNITED STATES. · 8:27am Jan 20th, 2018

We are currently experiencing the worst economic crisis since the great depression, but it's okay because the invisible hand of the free market is going to gently caress us while our New Empire accelerates its decline.

Apparently we have reached the part where Trump goes bankrupt and then runs away.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:

  • If you work for the government, you can't go to work tomorrow, sorry. At least, if your role is considered nonessential.

"Communist countries are bad because death squads!" · 11:53pm Jan 18th, 2018

My child, you can get summarily executed by paramilitary death squads right here in the US of A and people not only enjoy this, but they routinely vote for MORE death squads with MORE heavy weapons and military equipment.

Today a small child was killed by our local paramilitary death squads. Not too long ago an innocent man was killed in his own home because some folks thought it would be funny to send a death squad into his house.


Fun trivia for the day:

Fash the Pony Fiction: Or, How Things Work · 4:58am Jan 17th, 2018

Good evening.

I take a brief repose from my task of writing to report that things are not entirely good on the Home Front of the Front Lines of the Revolutionary Vanguard Party of the People here in the Military Empire of the United States (Occupied Turtle Island Territory).

Irma Makes Landfall; Richard Branson devastated over loss of luxury home · 4:21am Sep 11th, 2017

Irma has made landfall on Floridian soil. The damage is exactly as bad as we imagined. It seems like an exact repeat of Harvey if not worse, with heavy flooding and high winds. Once again, it looks like you can sail your way down the streets. Looks like the oceans swallowed up Miami.

We have heard that Richard Branson spent his time in his wine-cellar riding it out on his own private island.

On the Earthquake in Mexico · 5:05pm Sep 9th, 2017

An 8.1 earthquake struck off the Southern Coast of Mexico, causing great damage and loss of life. 45 people alone were killed in Oaxaca. It is said that this is the strongest earthquake to hit Mexico in 100 years.

Complicating the rescue efforts, Hurricane Katia made landfall directly afterwards.

I hope very much that the recovery efforts go well and my sympathies are with the survivors who have lost their loved ones to this disaster.

On the murder in Charlottesville. · 9:46pm Aug 13th, 2017

I've been a member of Anti-Fascist Action since about the 1990s. We've been opposing white nationalists for a long time.

Yesterday one of our people were killed in Charlottesville by a white nationalist. Her name was Heather Hayer.

We all know this was going to happen, because white nationalists kill people. It's their thing. And we opposed them knowing it was going to happen, and that our lives were at stake.

Reviewing the troops. · 12:00am Aug 13th, 2017

So some of you might recall that I was assembling a Rebel Pony Army.

Here they are in formation.

They have grown a lot since last time as I continue to recruit new personnel.

The Great and Powerful Trixie heads the left flank.

Ploomette leads the right flank. She has two sisters who look just like her.

[Hiatus update] · 3:35pm Aug 2nd, 2017

Earlier this year, I took up the task of writing again, but found myself having two problems:

  1. My skills had deteriorated from lack of use to the point where it was much more difficult than usual for me to produce work.
  2. I had to flesh out what was initially just a quick introductory chapter to a prologue.

So I exiled myself from the internet for a while, like a reclusive monk, and set about fixing this.

We did not actually get a snowstorm. · 10:47pm Mar 14th, 2017

I'm actually very glad that it just rained a lot. I have plans for this week and snow would have destroyed them.

I completed 2,732 words in the latest chapter of my fic but it's not even remotely done yet, so I'll take a quick break.
