It's not Alice in Wonderland.

More like Grimms Fairy Tales.

Or just a plain old sewer.

Sewers do good, they take things like mitch away for proper disposal.

It's very much a real photo, but not of Rep. MTG

It's just a curious little boy whose mom dressed him up like that and brought him to a Klan rally. Our local newspaper published that photo but did not include so many details

Definitely not Rep. Reprehensible. The important lesson of that pic is that we are not born to be racist shitbags, we are taught to be. We are not born to hate, we are taught to be. I would be interested to know whether that boy now shares his parents vile beliefs, but it doesn’t matter. 
That picture encapsulates why I take such a dim view of people who teach others to hate their fellow Americans. It takes real, active effort to teach such hatred. We see it here almost on a daily basis.

I dunno, "spewing" is not really the same thing as teaching, unless you're dealing with little kids who mimic and internalize everything they see/hear.

The ones here certainly give each other social reinforcement and encouragement, though.

Classy presidential, statesmanlike behaviour.

Setting an example..... How to openly benefit from public office and get away with it.

Or was it another COVID cure?

"

One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo. Almost immediately, the mother swooped in and took away the toddler, whom she identified to Robertson as “Josh”. The moment was fleeting, and almost no one noticed it, but Robertson had captured it on film. Since that moment the photograph has become an iconic image of American race relations and to the postulate “No one is born racist”. Here’s the colored version of the photo.

Trooper Allen Campbell later recalled:

“I didn’t even see the kid. I was just looking down to see what was bumping on my shield. And when I looked down, there was this little kid in a Klan uniform. He saw his reflection in the riot shield. He was tracing his outline. The child was oblivious to what was going on around him”.

Campbell did have some sympathy for the little boy named Josh. 

Then I note in another thread;

[BREAKING] Another Proud Boy is standing by for trial. Josh Hughes has been indicted by a federal grand jury on *NINE COUNTS* #SeditionHasConsequences

They practice in front of a mirror, so to them, it looks like their right arm.

Gotta keep your gun hand free.  Cocaine-crazed white-woman-hunting Negroes on welfare may burst out of the bushes at any moment.

Negative. They're registered as Republicans.

The most perfect illustration ever of Republican reality.

Action vs. acrimony

Sen. John Kennedy – the Republican senator from Louisiana, not the guy who became president in 1961 – recently attacked President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus bill in stark terms: “This is a left of Lenin, neo-socialist wish list.” If Kennedy is right, then we must be living in a left-of-Lenin country, given that, according to polls, the Biden plan has the support of 76% of voters, including 60% of Republicans.

The Louisiana senator’s declaration was plain silly, but his GOP colleagues in the Senate and House offered up few better justifications for their unanimous votes against the bill.  Democrats now can claim full credit when relief checks start arriving in the mailboxes of millions of stressed and cash-strapped Americans.

As Marx said, “While money can’t buy happiness, it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery.” That Marx, by the way, was not Lenin’s comrade; it was Groucho.

They should put a flyer in with every cheque showing the number of Dems who supported and opposed the bill and the number of Republicans who supported and opposed it.

Might wake up a few people.

I hope the Republicans who get the stimulus checks just countersign the back and mail it to Trump. He needs the money.

Assumes that the people who would most benefit can read and would read that flyer.  More likely they would just label it fake news
