CPAC wants PBS defunded due to Sesame Street adding an Asian-American Character

Absolute Looney Toons (with apologies to Warner Brother Animation).

Now I’m more than convinced the Right has gone more overboard than the Left.

Here’s a novel idea: how about governing the country responsibly, rather than crucifying a fictional character on a children’s show?

Hey! Cesar! Leave us the f!ck alone!

The right need to accept they participate in the cancel culture they invented.

The Republicans as a party are coming closer to having the papers being signed for their involuntary committal to the psycho ward.

That happened in 2016 and in 2020 another 75 million were re-admitted to the psych ward

Even before that, except that before the mid-60s, the Dems were in on it as well.

the difference is, the racists fled the democratic party en masse when more activist black folk entered the party in the 60s, and those ex-democrats formed the core of what became today's GOP.

Political refugees :lol:

That explains what happened to all the dems in white robes, throwing stones at black school kids. They were given refuge in the GOP.

Exactly.

Recent US history must look strange to an outsider like you.

The worst enemy of the Black Civil Rights movement of Fifties and Sixties was the Democratic Party. And the Movement couldnt have triumphed over the Democratic Party without the help of the Movement's main ally, which was... the Democratic Party! :lol:

The northern Democrats and the Southern Democrats were very different animals back then.

Southern White Democrats defected en masse in the off year election in 1994 to the GOP. So today we dont have "Dixiecrats" anymore because they are all GOP now.

To be fair, conservatives have been trying to defund PBS my entire lifetime on general principle, they just don't think the government should be spending money on it, that it spreads messages they don't like is just gravy as far as their opposition goes.

God forbid that any public should go to educating children, as opposed to building even more expensive death dealing machines, or handing out tax cuts to the rich as if the cash was candy.
