Get thee the fuck out of my state, Vanilla ISIS!

Can I just say, it's really demoralizing when the state you live in makes national news for a) shitty weather, b) your Governor thinking with his dick, and c) Caucasian terrorists from out of state camping out in the gift shop of a park in your state, "defending" two people whose families don't want Caucasian terrorists defending them.

As Ebony magazine points out, there's a whopping double standard in the fact that these armed jackasses aren't called terrorists (read: they're white.) Twitter put it well: "Armed black people are called thugs. Armed brown people are called terrorists. Armed white people are called militias."

Meanwhile, I have been laughing my ass off about #YokelHaram, #VanillaISIS, #YallQaeda, etc. These jerkoffs don't deserve any respect. Anyone who needs to storm a gift shop (yes, they're in the gift shop), armed, has got to be hung like a peanut.

In other news, the rest of the country is *also* laughing at us, because a few inches of snow shut down our entire metro area for the better part of today. Did that stop anyone from driving like an idiot? Come on! This is Oregon, after all.

I plan to catch up on blogs very soon. What's going on in your neck of the woods?

Sigh. I suppose there is no comfort for you in hearing they made the news over here as well.
Pathetic little people that they are.

It appears things are remaining the same in 2016! Nothing changes...it just gets worse, I think...here, there and everywhere!

I hope 2016 treats you kindly, RK. Let's all ban news bulletins! I'm watching the Summer of Tennis here...leading up to the Aussie Open that will start on 18th January...and when that's over, I think I'll watch the croquet!!

I'm fed up with all the fools in this world of ours. I wish they'd just all go away...and let me watch the tennis in peace...and then the croquet in peace! Maybe I should take up crochet!

Take care, RK. :)

This makes me happy that I do not read or listen to the news. It's good to keep my head in the sand:-)

Ileana said...

Hung like a peanut, inches of snow. Ay, chica! lol

Debra She Who Seeks said...

I had a good laugh at those hashtags too. But there's not a double standard -- there's a TRIPLE one!

Jono said...

I had only heard YallQaeda so far, so thanks for the chuckles. One of the terrorists calls himself Captain Moroni. Despite the Mormon reference I think moroni is plural for moron in this instance.

Charles Gramlich said...

But those folks are on a YEEHAWD.

HBF said...

Hadn't read/heard that perspective on the ... stand off? (hermit) but it hits the nail on the head and tickles me. All those # are pretty dang good.

We had a teensy bit of snow up here north of Seattle but it was enough to make some ice that caused some issues. Hell, snow that is falling and not sticking to the roads will cause issues around here.

Rock Chef said...

My favourite comment about these nuts was that if they die for their cause, when they get to heaven they will be given 72 cousins.

My neck of the woods? Christmas is over and it is raining...

Birdie said...

I have been removed from the news this last 36 hours so I don't know what you speak of. Is it worth looking up? It sounds like more assholes just ruining the love and peace the rest of us work so hard for.

Abby said...

These guys are just looking for a way to start stuff. Gift shop in the boonies it is, I suppose. Love the hashtags, though! And RC's 72 cousins!

OldLady Of The Hills said...

Like Granny Annie I've got my head in the sand! I cannot bear the news!!!! As always----I LOVE your Humor....I haven't been around much myself---Health Issues, etc.
Wishing you and yours, a very Happy New Year, my dear!!!

Lynn said...

I like Cow Tipping Terrorists the most. Good point from Ebony magazine.

And snow always shuts down Atlanta, too - we don't know what to do with it. :)

Holland said...

Meanwhile... I just want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

klahanie said...

Hey Riot Kitty,

Terrorists and whatever, there's a lot of fucked-up excuses for humans out there. Of course, a riot kitty is well ace.

I laugh at Oregon, just for the hell of it!

Why is it called neck of the woods? Why not, elbow of the forest, for fuck's sake!

Have a good one,

Gary :)

Claire said...

This whole story has me aghast....and kind of hoping it's all just an elaborate satire!

wigsf3 said...

Somehow missed this news story. Maybe that's a good thing. It's too sad and funny and aggravating simultaneously to be real news.
Or maybe it's just people getting bogged down in nomenclature and racism.

CraveCute said...

RK I too saw all of this on Twitter... and of course constantly on the news! Looks like those folks were having a regular convention out there. You've summed it up so well! Are they at least going to send them a bill for using the facilities?

Vanessa Morgan said...

Happy (late) New Year!

G. B. Miller said...

Was wondering when you were gonna comment about those G.I. Jane wannabes.

A gift store is very unoriginal.

I give them credit though, that they do have some very valid points about govt. overreach. It's that they're going about it so badly that it makes any other normal/sane person who not only holds those viewpoints but is trying to legitimately do something about it, cringe in disgust.

I Are Writer!

agg79 said...

Yea, there is a total double standard there. Defend your home/family you are some kind of right wing, god fearing, armed zealot. Shut down a freeway over some punk ass gang banger and you are protesting the inequity of the situation. Makes my head hurt.

Riot Kitty said...

Agg have you been following the coverage? I live here. They aren't protecting anyone's homes or family. They are illegally occupying - with arms - a federal building to protest the prison sentences of two arsonists. Read some information about these guys. One of them is the "Fuck Islam" t-shirt maker. Another one helped his father take target shots at federal agents. Tell me you'd want them coming into your state.

A Beer For The Shower said...

I just can't believe that they're STILL going. What a joke that they haven't been arrested yet. On the plus side, now that they're asking for supplies, did you see that someone mailed them a bag full of dildos (a literal bag of dicks)?

Blue Grumpster said...

That sure sounds like a double standard to me, and you know how I feel about double standards.

Ms. CrankyPants said...

For some reason I can't shake the expression "fistful of f*cks" (I just started watching VEEP) whenever I think of these, well, FOFs.

CraveCute said...

Just checking in RK, sounds like the stand-off is finally over.

Pandora Hinkleheimer said...

Even with two feet of snow, Joe and I always had to show up at the firehouse or be considered AWOL. Still have the 4-wheel drive car that got me there and back.

Mike_D said...

"Why can't I quit you?" is the first thing I thought of when I heard of the memes against these yahoos....
