Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – I got nothin’ edition

People – this feature is getting harder and harder to write.  Not asking for sympathy, just stating a fact. Cognitive dissonance, always a strong feature in Freeperville, has now completely taken over, and how do you parody something once it has entered Poeville?

An example:

Michelle Obama says Americans will miss having a ‘grown-up’ in the White House

In interview with Oprah Winfrey, Obama says ‘people will come to appreciate’ her husband’s presidency

Michelle Obama said the White House needs a “grown-up” and the U.S. will come to appreciate President Barack Obama.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey set to air Monday night, Obama said the election has reinforced her view that her husband’s administration was able to inspire hope “because we feel the difference now.”

“Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like,” she said. “You know? Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept. And Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes.

“What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?” she added.

Liberals live in their own alternate reality.


Projection’s a bitch, innit?


These two sociopaths can take a hike.

This moron voted for The Darnold, who is the textbook example of a sociopath – ergo, President Obama is a sociopath.
How exactly am I supposed to parody that? It would be like mocking a disabled person.
Oh, fuck you.

Who, even among his diehard syncophants, thinks of Barack as an adult?

Seriously, who sees him as anything than a petulant child?

If by “him” you mean The Darnold :
Maybe a Freeper will make some kind of funny reply I can feature as “post of the thread”?

I’ll take one more swing at it below the fold – follow, if you dare.

Maybe this story will be good for some yucks?

How an Internet conspiracy theory led a gunman into a DC pizza parlor

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman may have lost his handkerchief on Martha’s Vineyard one day in September 2014 – and two years later that incident has spawned a convoluted conspiracy theory involving a supposed pedophilia ring run out of a Washington, D.C., pizza joint.

How we got from John Podesta’s hankie to claims of a child sex ring – and an armed man arrested Sunday at the pizza parlor attempting to “investigate” the claims – is a disjointed tale that reveals how a toxic Internet story is born, fed and spread without evidence.

Edgar Maddison Welch, a 28-year-old North Carolina man, was arrested Sunday afternoon on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, after police say he fired his rifle into the floor of the pizza place. No one was hurt, but the incident sent customers running. Welch, who told authorities he went to the establishment to “self-investigate” the sex ring claims, allegedly was spotted looking for rumored tunnels filled with hidden children, a nearby store owner told The Washington Post.

C’mon, Freepers – give me some funny.

A ground-penetrating radar unit would have been a better tool than a rifle for that purpose…

“Internet conspiracy theory”… 

How does Fox know this is only a theory? This requires further investigation!

Shooter? I suppose firing a bullet in the air is a shooter.

Now, how the hell can I make fun of that??

Definition of shooter

  1. 1 :  one that shoots: asa :  a person who fires a missile-discharging device (as a rifle or bow)

I give up.
Maybe next week.
I’m getting seriously discouraged here, people.

  1. I feel you, man.
    We gotta keep trying though.
    If it’s any consolation, TTOwtF has been one of my Monday touchstones for years. Knowing that someone else sees the absurdity of the RWNJs and can point and laugh, has helped.

  2. Yeah, your work with the Obsession is appreciated out here…’s the only thing that gets me started on Mondays.

  3. The discouraging part is that this is what the Freepers do with the straight news. Most of the fun stuff is when they run smack into reality after riffing on half-understood headlines that they harvest from the derpiest corners of social media. Now instead of their mainly being loons lost in reality, somehow reality has agreed to meet them more than halfway.

    The most active Freeper threads about the Michelle-Oprah interview mentioned above all relate to her comment “Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary”. Those that didn’t read it as a story about how Michelle has lost hope personally, took it as an opportunity to talk about how she was just the first of her…kind to be evicted from public housing because of Trump. There is a lot to be….discouraged by.

    But then I read this:

    ‘Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary,’ she said in her first direct response to the November 9 election result.

    Chin up, Michelle. I felt the same way when your husband was reelected and thought we would never recover from it. But I got over it in about 2-3 days. And look what happened – Trump got elected and Hope is back!

    A mote of wisdom from the mouthbreather with the moral faculty of a baby.

    In truth, nothing has changed from November 7 until now in terms of what is morality, what is truth, what constitutes decency. Right now hurts all the more because we fell from a pretty remarkable height of hope into what promises to be a nightmare. But we are still here, right? And the Freepers are not any more in tune with reality now than they were at any point in the past 20 years, and soon enough they will go back to being the most reliable barometer of wrongness in the known universe.
