Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “War Declared” edition

People, I’ve got to say – I have always taken happiness in seeing the Freeperati go at each other, especially post-Darnold, where the True Believers and the pragmatists get their circular firing squad on, but this?

This is something completely different.

Video of Ukrainian woman confronting Russian soldier goes viral: Put sunflower seeds in your pocket ‘so at least [flowers] will grow’ when you’re killed

A fiery Ukrainian women went viral for her reaction to a Russian soldier patrolling a Ukrainian street earlier this week.

What are the details? The unnamed woman — dressed in nearly all black and wearing a white winter hat — was seen in a video shared to social media telling off a Russian soldier and suggesting he carry sunflower seeds in his pockets — so that when he is killed on foreign soil, flowers will sprout from his decomposing body.

“Put them in your pockets,” she stoically told the soldier during one point of the interaction, “so at least sunflowers will grow when you all lie down here.”

The sunflower, which is Ukraine’s national flower, is often said to represent power, strength, warmth, and more.

Elsewhere in the video, the woman could be heard telling the soldier, “You’re occupants, you’re fascists! What the f*** are you doing on our land with all these guns?”

She added, “From this moment, you are cursed. I’m telling you. You f***ing came here uninvited.”

“Pieces of s**t,” she concluded.

Now, you know that the “it’s not our fight/Putin’s a great guy” types, conditioned by four years plus of Trumpism, are going to try to downplay Putin’s Hitler impersonation.  (My fave blogger Shower Cap called Putin “Underpants Gnome Mussolini”)
.
You also know they’re going to get some pushback from the Freepers who have had about enough of The Darnold and his dictator pals.
Right?
To: marcusmaximus
Should the soldier be there? No.
But he was actually restrained and polite.

He restrained himself from shooting her in front of a bunch of witnesses recording on their phones.

He’ll politely be rounding her up when there are no witnesses around.

Bravery? Meh.

She is lucky the Russian soldier she spoke to chose to treat her like a fussy old Grandma. He may have known at least one person was filming the interaction.

If there were no cameras rolling and you had a more combative type of soldier, she could have gotten rifle-butted in the head or much worse.

Yeah! How DARE she?? (I’m assuming “much worse” means raping her. He’ll get around to that later)
To: marcusmaximus

Well Putin is a smart genius, so this soldier clearly has nothing to worry about.

Oh but we have people on here that say that country belongs to Russia because they looked at a map or something. Wake up and stand up.

I guess if foreign soldiers occupied your street, you would be bringing them lunch.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with random ruminations – pulling my trumpet card edition

Today in “Things no one but me cares about” – the CBS Sunday Morning trumpet theme. I’ve been watching this show since Charles Kuralt hosted it, and was surprised to find out that the demographic is not just old farts like me, but actually placed first in its time slot in the key demographic of adults 25–54, beating all of the political discussion-driven Sunday morning talk shows. The issue I have is with the trumpet piece that opens the show. It’s “Abblasen”, attributed to Gottfried Reiche. It’s a pretty famous fanfare, and was performed for decades as written, by Doc … Continue reading Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with random ruminations – pulling my trumpet card edition

Ok, folks – when we last left our Freeper Fandango, they were still bickering over Sgt. KMA.

Here’s the article at the beginning of the thread :

Washington trooper who defied state vaccine mandate and told gov to ‘kiss my a–‘ dies from COVID-19 NY Post ^ | 1/29/22 | Kyle Morris Posted on 1/29/2022, 6:44:09 AM by Callahan

A Washington State Patrol officer who defied a statewide vaccine mandate and signed off for the last time by telling Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee to “kiss my a–” is dead from COVID-19.

Occasionally, even a Freeper ditches the “Kung Flu” cult :

(in response to the “Darwin Award winner” comment that got deleted and that I rescued)

To: Blennos
Cruel comment or not, thousands of so-called Darwin Awards have been bestowed on these very pages during my time on FreeRepublic. I cannot begin to count the times I have read phrases like “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes” and “Hold my beer” or heard about Karma and of course Schadenfreude. I have zero doubt that if former officer Lamay had simply gotten vaccinated he would still be alive right now, perhaps enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee, looking forward to a relaxing weekend after a satisfying week on the job and counting the days to a happy retirement and generous pension. I hope no others have died as a result of following his well-publicized lead. We don’t know whether he was treated or self-medicated with Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, our some other cocktail of drugs and vitamins, but as a celebrated poster child for the antivaxx movement, I am sure he had access to all of the above and I would not be surprised if he had Dr. Zelenko and the My Pillow guy on speed dial. Sorry you are no longer with us, Mr. Lamay. I wish you were enjoying that nice hot cup of coffee right now. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need a refill.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with Random Ruminations – more COVID crapola

(written at the first months of the pandemic) All over social media, I see people saying things like: “You should be more respectful of the dead” whenever the subject of Herman Cain’s suicide – um, death comes up. No. I’m respectful of service members who gave their lives for their country. I’m respectful of First Responders who died while trying to save others. I don’t have to be respectful of morons who willfully caused their own deaths. Herman Cain and other deniers/anti-science idiots like him who loudly told everyone that the trucks zooming down the highway weren’t real, and stepped … Continue reading Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with Random Ruminations – more COVID crapola

Trump Fans Excited To Vote For The Guy Who Fast-Tracked Vaccines And Hired Fauci
Babylon Bee ^ | 1/18/22

Posted on 1/18/2022, 6:35:41 PM by Pollard

U.S.—Fans of former president Donald J. Trump are chomping at the bit to once again vote for the guy who fast-tracked vaccines and appointed Dr. Anthony Fauci to the Coronavirus Task Force.

“Trump was by far our greatest president. Even better than James Madison!” said local deplorable Nathan Nebulous. “Everything was great under Trump until that deadly virus changed the face of the entire earth overnight and ruined everything. But he was so good at owning the libs!”

Sean Hannity, a popular conservative pundit, announced his continued support of Trump on his radio program. “Sure, the vaccines don’t seem to help at all and Fauci may have created COVID himself, but nobody’s perfect. Don’t lose sight of how great his Twitter account was before he got banned.”

Ouch (and don’t shoot the messenger)

If you’re not familiar with it, the “Babylon Bee” is the right wing’s attempt at a funny news blog. Usually, it’s as ham-handedly unfunny as most right wing attempts at humour, but this time, the stopped clock has the time of day perfect.
