Rage Furby Chuck C. Johnson Gets Suspended From Facebook for the Second Time This Year

Why does everyone keep picking on the Rage Furby?
Weird • Views: 66,601

Yes, folks, our cyberstalker pal Chuck C. “Rage Furby” Johnson has gotten himself suspended from Facebook again, for the second time this year, and all he did was post some “jokes!”

WOW: GotNews.com’s Charles C. Johnson Suspended From Facebook Over Trump and Ryan Joke, Praising George Zimmerman

Of course, what the Chuck-thing calls “jokes” other people recognize as racist and homophobic slurs, which just might have something to do with the reason he finds himself without a Facebook account tonight.

People who know how Facebook works surely realize that it takes a lot to get them to suspend someone. Here are the posts Chuck is calling “jokes:”

He actually seems to think there’s nothing wrong with spewing this kind of nasty racism and homophobia; but that’s our boy the Rage Furby!

Chuck immediately got on the psychic hotline to his imaginary friends to make Facebook pay for inflicting this indignity upon him.

Pretty soon he’ll be threatening to sue Mark Zuckerberg, because that tactic has been so successful for him with other websites.

Meanwhile, the Rage Furby posted a new video to his YouTube account (how long will that last, we wonder?), claiming that he’s going to be a delegate for Donald Trump at the Republican Convention in Cleveland.

So we have that train wreck to look forward to, assuming it isn’t another figment of his diseased white supremacist mind. I can hardly wait.

The video has about 130 views. It’s a breakdown and shift in the media paradigm, with UpChuck leading the charge!

I wonder whose couch he plans to crash on while going to Cleveland to be (or act like he is) a delegate? The GOP doesn’t give them money to attend, and hotel space is at a premium. So one can expect this particular facet of his story to turn into a grift right after the CA primary at the very latest.

I actually wondered if Rage Furby was going to be a delegate. I remembered that he was a non-Trump groupie, but then I also remembered that none of that matters to the prestigious Chuck C. Johnson - all he cares about is feeling important.

Graham has already burned five or six bridges on this long, long road. I think it’s Trump thinking he can play Graham’s discussion (presuming it wasn’t just completely made up) into something that it’s not.

True Story from work today. We had a sales rep swing by the shop on Wednesday. We ordered a batch of dive lights from a new line he’s carrying, and gave him some grief that we were still waiting on some stuff that had fallen though some cracks in the order process from a couple of months ago to ship. Placed a nice order, and that we’d pay when we got notification of shipping.

That was yesterday about noon or so. Today they arrived FedEx Express from Canada. And they only charged us 25 bucks for the shipping costs.

And with that, I’m going to take care of things and go to bed.

Finished the video. It’s pretty clear that Rage Furby had no idea when he was invited to that pilot taping that he was going to be the foil. His first thought was, “Wow! I’m famous!” Then, he did the taping and reality was not what he imagined. Now, he’s trying to retcon it as an exploration into “progressive comedy” and “how the other half lives.” IOW, he’s spinning the appearance as some kind of painful journalistic investigation, and that he probably won’t do it again. Clearly, he is downcast.

Actually, it seems that Trump’s advocacy of the wall has turned Americans off the idea. The actual questions pollsters asked were about building a fence, and in 2011 & 2015 responses used to be about 46 (in favor) - 47 or 48 (against) - 5 (dont know). In 2016, 38-58-4. Probably means a bunch of people had never thought about it and said “yeah, sure” but after listening to Donald and his critics, about 1 in 10 Americans saw the light (hallelujah!). This is promising.

The Badab War

The Badab War, fought between 901.M41 and 913.M41, was one of the most insidious and dangerous internecine conflicts to wrack the Imperium of Man in recent history, made all the more lamentable because the unthinkable had occurred. As a result of a conflicting nexus of honour, treachery, politics and greed, several Space Marine Chapters turned Renegade against the Imperium and bloodshed and outright civil war ensued — a war which turned entire armies of the Imperium’s most powerful warriors against each other and in doing so swept millions to their deaths in its turbulence.

Such was all the result of the treachery and hubris of the former Chapter Master Lufgt Huron of the Astral Claws Space Marine Chapter, the self-styled and infamous “Tyrant of Badab.” The carnage wrought amongst the stars of the Maelstrom Zone during this conflict was such that it rocked the faith and order of untold Imperial worlds never touched directly by its violence, and caused loyal subjects to look upon their Adeptus Astartes protectors with fear. Such were the dire sins and hidden truths that lay behind the war, that a pall of secrecy and lies descended about the conflict even as it was fought.

The rebellion was eventually put down by the forces of the Inquisition and those Astartes Chapters who remained steadfast in their duty to the Emperor of Mankind, but its instigators, the Astral Claws, wholly given over to Chaos in the course of the conflict, turned Renegade and its survivors become the infamous corsair band of Chaos Space Marines known as the Red Corsairs. The Red Corsairs are led by the treacherous Chaos Lord named Huron Blackheart, a vicious Champion of Chaos Undivided who is now nearly unrecognisable as the once-noble Lufgt Huron. Blackheart and the Red Corsairs currently dominate a large Chaos empire within the Warp Rift known as the Maelstrom in the Eastern Fringes of the galaxy. There Blackheart plots his vengeance upon the Imperium and prepares to build a new empire dedicated to the Ruinous Powers that will bring the demesne of the Traitor Legions within the Eye of Terror to shame.

I am sure that the lawmakers are aware of the law, but they are also cynical and manipulative and aware that to most of us idiots out there, FB and Twitter are not private corporations but some sort of public utility.

They are as much a public space as the food court at the local shopping mall. Open to the public, but still on private property.

Roger Ebert’s review of ‘Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie’.

rogerebert.com

Probably not post-worthy, but I love that film.
Saw their live show recently. Hilarious in parts but mostly genuinely uncomfortable. The best part was that the closing act was apparently a standup comic that was riding their coattails and attempting to raise his exposure. Some of his bit was pretty funny, but then the houselights came up and exit music started playing. And the delivery of his jokes, while not improving, became funnier; at least to me. The music gradually gets louder and louder, all but drowning him out and Tim and Eric reappear, partly naked and halfway through having their makeup removed. Then they procede to shoo the audience away.

I get that the cult status makes it difficult to explain why a joke works without feeling as though your reasoning is contrived (fundamentally that’s not how a joke works anyway), but it’s a return to the origin of where laughter comes from.

The experience of a potential threat, and relief at its diminishment.
Sheer absurdity.

No. He’s a racist shitweasel. And claiming to be on the spectrum doesn’t excuse it. He’s gotten enough pushback from website operators to know the difference. He has called it exploring different viewpoints in the past, but the reality is that he’s attracted to white supremacists and racists. He uses their language freely. He cites to the racist and white supremacist sites regularly.

No. He’s a racist shitweasel. And claiming to be on the spectrum doesn’t excuse it. He’s gotten enough pushback from website operators to know the difference. He has called it exploring different viewpoints in the past, but the reality is that he’s attracted to white supremacists and racists. He uses their language freely. He cites to the racist and white supremacist sites regularly.

Kinda like Trump.

I’m not doubting it. He’s painted himself into the only corner that would halfway accept him. His ties with the other RWNJ media people are toast, because he’s made himself into a one-man Purity Patrol. I think the guy wants to belong to some group, any group that will let him in. The thing is, the white supremacists don’t really like him, because he married an Asian. But he doesn’t understand this, much as he didn’t understand the Comedy Central invitation.

Rage Furby does not understand that aspect. He’s never learned that one has to change one’s language depending on the situation and context. He wants verboten words to be freely used wherever and whenever by everyone.

Hard to say if that’s a result of being “on the spectrum,” as he claims, or a result of just plain cussedness.

I’m beginning to think it’s more similar to a toddler noticing that a certain word draws him attention — without having any clue what the meaning or context of the word is. Since the attention-getting is the only goal the toddler then proceeds to repeatedly use (or scream) the word.

I know of at least a few establishments in Philadelphia that have unisex rest rooms. Essentially a chain of small rooms not much larger than stalls - and no distinction that any particular one is male-only or female-only.

A lot of this fuss is a fossil of building design and attempts at efficiency. Heck, just do a little historical reading and you come across cases (US Navy for instance) where buildings or ships were designed with only one set of mass bathrooms since it was never expected to support both sexes in the first place.

My oldest son is going to a private Methodist college. This year, he was the only male in an on campus apartment with three females, one of which shared a bedroom with him. He’ll have the same arrangement next year, with different roommates.

In 88, when I went to college, it was controversial at WPI to have one floor of a dorm with men on one half of a floor and women at the other half.

Well, you know those Methodists. Bunch of backbenchers, those people are. //

Cornell likened the public backlash against Target to when the retailer started using African American models in advertising in the mid 1960s.

“Back then it wasn’t well received, but sitting here today we know we made the right decision,” Cornell said.

Cornell also noted that a majority of Target’s stores already have a family restroom and “we are committed over the next few months to make sure every one of our stores has that option because we want all our guests to be welcomed in our stores.”

On the other hand, I think Jerry Jones was drooling at the thought of hosting the NCAA games at Jerry World after NC’s law, and I don’t think he’ll be too happy if the state fucks that up.

As the CNN anchors poked fun of their media coverage, themselves and the election in general, Kimmel continued to explain that “I don’t need a number 1 to make a number 2.” After answering several questions about policy and his lead in the polls (since there’s currently no VP competition) Blitzer asked the most important question: “Do you think you’re making a mockery of this election?”

Big brother Obama. Right. It’s the GOP that is pushing big brother solutions for bathroom policing with their nonsensical laws that are in search of a problem.

All this energy is expended by the GOP to goose their base into a frothing mass of irrational hate/fear towards transgenders, even though this isn’t exactly a problem.

Where are all the documented cases of guys dressing as women in order to attack them in women’s bathrooms. There’s just no evidence that it’s a widespread problem. In fact, there’s no epidemic of attacks by cross dressers.

What we are finding is that guys are going into women’s bathrooms to “self-police” this, and end up assaulting or harassing women that they don’t think belong in the women’s rooms.

The only folks who don’t belong there are these knuckle dragging guys who take it upon themselves to “police” a law that doesn’t make any sense, is unenforceable, and is the very kind of big brother response that SMOTI thinks Obama is doing.

There’s nothing more Big Brother than government imposing on who can use which bathroom and criminalizing who does what - in a locked bathroom stall.

You have to deal with a set of hard-wired ideas that just set these people off into a white-hot rage:

First: that God only created two genders and that anything in between the two is an aberration and an abomination unto Him

Second: that genitals and breasts are inherently sexual features, despite the fact that they also serve other purposes

Third: That sexuality outside of marriage and procreation is inherently perverse and sinful

The thoughts of LGBTs using a restroom that does not conform to the set of genitals they were issued at birth is an abomination, and an invitation to sin and sexual perversion.

There is no convincing these people otherwise.

Trump Butler Says Detroit Should Be Nuked for Being “Disgraced by Muslims”

In a segment that aired on All in With Chris Hayes, Senecal repeated his belief that President Obama should be hanged “from the white mosque,” this time adding that it should be televised and Hillary Clinton should be hanged as well.

Even more disturbingly, Senecal called for the cities of Milwaukee and Detroit to be designated “nuclear bomb sites” because they have become “totally disgraced by Muslims.”

“We need to bomb them out,” said Senecal. “I could care less they’re in the U.S. I don’t want them in the U.S. They don’t belong here. They belong in the sand dunes they came from.”

So, he’s giving back the Black Hills to Native American tribes? You know, because that’s part of the Treaty of Laramie.

Words have meanings, and actions have consequences. He says one thing, but the reality is he isn’t going to uphold all the treaties. Just parts of some.

I’ve been out to the Black Hills, and I’ve driven through parts of the Pine Ridge reservation. I don’t think for one moment that his claim to respecting those treaties means giving these tribes what they are due - which is the land.

Not entirely sure.

Look at the polls showing head-to-head between Clinton/Trump and Sanders/Trump.

Trump gets the same level of support in both - 38%. The only difference is in who’s backing Hillary or Sanders, and even then, there’s a gap of undecideds - 11 points in the Sanders matchup, and 18 points in the Hillary-Trump matchup.

That’s why it’s way too soon to draw any conclusions about any election outcome at this point.

The Republicans would vote for a tree struck by lightning if it had an R next to its name. Our country is very polarized. All of the Democrats that would have voted Republican 35 years ago are Republicans now. All of the Republicans that would have voted for Democrats 35 years ago watch Fox news and believe unemployment has gone up over the last eight years.

And a landslide still isn’t measured in popular vote, it’s measured in electoral college.

Don’t get that worried. I don’t even think Obama’s margins in 2008 were this large right now, though don’t quote me on that. Plus, and it’s similar to Obama, Clinton is going to lose a few percent because she’s a woman.

Someone posted a link somewhere on someone’s study of cat “chattering” and surmised that it is possibly a cat imitating the bird sounds and trying to lure them closer.

Whenever one of my Siamese did it due to bird on other side of window the other Siamese would come running since he knew what it was about.

The Republicans would vote for a tree struck by lightning if it had an R next to its name. Our country is very polarized. All of the Democrats that would have voted Republican 35 years ago are Republicans now. All of the Republicans that would have voted for Democrats 35 years ago watch Fox news and believe unemployment has gone up over the last eight years.

And a landslide still isn’t measured in popular vote, it’s measured in electoral college.

Don’t get that worried. I don’t even think Obama’s margins in 2008 were this large right now, though don’t quote me on that. Plus, and it’s similar to Obama, Clinton is going to lose a few percent because she’s a woman.

You’re right about GOP loyalty. But what gives me hope is that Trump hasn’t polled above 40% this year against Hillary.

He needs to lose in an epic McGovern/Mondale landslide. He is such an awful candidate, and such an awful person. If he ends up with Romney or McCain like numbers on election day, I will be fearful for this country.

The 35% is showing that they are quite willing to give (and keep giving) power to a collection of people who do not have their interests in mind. As long as those at the top continue to allow the 35% to maintain their discriminatory and partriarchal behaviors towards the other 35% (and whoever else they please to declare as the “other”.)

I am seeing anti-minority, anti-gay, and anti-immigrant rhetoric getting “likes” from friends in Facebook. Same crap that has been flying around in this country for a couple of hundred years, just with the target group* changing. Conservatism in this country has simply gotten ugly at this point.

Real Clear Politics has a nifty demographic calculator where you can adjust the vote percentage of different ethnicities and speculate what that would do to the Republican vote vis a vis the 2012 election. In a sane world, you would have to think that hispanics would be motivated to turn out against Trump, and that he would be lucky to get 10% of the their vote, given his demonstrably insane comments about mass deportations and building “the wall” (not to mention making Mexico pay for it). So if hispanic turnout increases to 55% (from 48% in 2012), and if Trump polls only 10%, what you talk about would definitely happen - Texas would flip to the Democrats, and Arizona might as well. Indiana would even be in reach.

GOP committee ends talk of secession at party convention

A Texas GOP committee struck secession language from a proposed party platform late Thursday, ending anticipation for an independence debate on the convention floor Friday.

Party leaders voted 16 to 14 in favor of nixing the language with one member abstaining. For now, that’s likely the end of a saga that drew national attention as an activist group ably advanced the call for Texas independence through the state GOP apparatus to the party convention, even as party leaders and most members scoffed at the notion.

It was the most high-profile emergence of Texas recurrent secessionist movement since the early 1990s, when the country watched a west Texas hostage situation unfold. Now advocates of the fringe agenda say they come away encouraged.

“The movement is growing,” wrote secession advocate Jesse Newberry on Facebook after the plank was tossed from the platform. “This isn’t a failure. It’s a success to have made it this far.”

Trump taps climate change skeptic, fracking advocate as key energy advisor

Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has turned to one of America’s most ardent drilling advocates and climate change skeptics to help him draft his energy policy.

The New York billionaire has asked U.S. Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer of North Dakota - a major oil drilling state - to write a white paper on energy policy, Cramer and sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Cramer and some other Trump energy advisers also recently met with lawmakers from western energy states, who hope Trump will open more federal land for drilling.

Cramer said his paper would emphasize the dangers of foreign ownership of U.S. energy assets, burdensome taxes, and over-regulation.

The way I’m looking at is even Bush who was a much more appealing candidate across the spectrum than Trump is barely won his elections and if you’re like me, don’t believe he won 2000 at all due to the shenanigans there, point is the GOP has a lot of states they have to gain and an increasingly unfavorable map with also increasingly unfavorable demographics. The GOP will look back and see their mistake was shitting Hispanics and they’re taking a huge shit with Trump. Trump might be another Goldwater that sends Hispanics away from even considering the Republican Party. Remember Nixon got a third of the African American vote in 1960 but in 1964, it was below 10% and it hasn’t even come close to what Nixon did in 1960 since. The GOP has become the bitter old white man’s party.

The way I’m looking at is even Bush who was a much more appealing candidate across the spectrum than Trump is barely won his elections and if you’re like me, don’t believe he won 2000 at all due to the shenanigans there, point is the GOP has a lot of states they have to gain and an increasingly unfavorable map with also increasingly unfavorable demographics. The GOP will look back and see their mistake was shitting Hispanics and they’re taking a huge shit with Trump. Trump might be another Goldwater that sends Hispanics away from even considering the Republican Party. Remember Nixon got a third of the African American vote in 1960 but in 1964, it was below 10% and it hasn’t even come close to what Nixon did in 1960 since. The GOP has become the bitter old white man’s party.

They are trapped in a demographic death spiral. The party desperately needs to broaden its appeal, but in the short term politicians like Trump can win primaries by appealing to white racial resentment, alienating minorities even more. Until it stops they may not win another presidential election.

There have been women who have been accused of being men being denied access to the bathroom. This is just so typical of the conservative ideology. They always invent a problem where there is not a problem and frankly the worst thing is they’re busy huffing and puffing about this shit while they ignore other very real problems in our world.

Well, this isn’t particularly surprising. Racism is really what’s driving Trump’s support. More than the economic “argument,” it’s about Trump getting at what really drives GOP support - fear that whites are falling behind - when that simply isn’t happening. Whites still enjoy far more rights and privileges than everyone else. That everyone else is catching up to share in the same equal rights and privileges under the law is what drives this fear.

Everyone else catching up means whites are falling behind according to the GOP/right wing worldview that they’ve been touting for years. Heaven forbid everyone else is entitled to the same protection under the law as written - including access to vote, equal protection under the law, etc. Blacks and other minorities finally get treated equally, and the GOP caterwauls that whites are losing rights.

It’s the same mindless BS that drives nonsense about how the stock market is down from when Obama took office, or that the economy is in worse shape now than then.

Honestly, I’m legitimately hard pressed to think of a single cultural issue the right has been on the correct side of in our history.
Let’s see
Emancipation? Nope, conservatives either defended slavery’s legality and morality or opposed its abolition.
Women’s suffrage? Nope.
Civil rights for minority groups? Again nope despite their revisionism, conservatives were very much opposed to Civil Rights if not on racial grounds, the folly of states rights ground.
Gay marriage? Nope.
And it will continue. Social conservatism especially is a flawed ideology because social conservatism cannot accept change and change is what drives society.

That seems pretty specific. Have to wonder if someone decided to map out locations of schools and clinics, and saw that they were within 2,000 feet, and therefore decided to write it that way.

I bet they have no problems with gun stores being close to schools though.

At least we don’t have to show our birth certificates to buy an AK.

In my mind, that would rank right up there with “buying a one-way ticket to LAX” on the list of warning signs, but we can’t investigate gunz.

re: #400 HappyWarrior

Honestly, I’m legitimately hard pressed to think of a single cultural issue the right has been on the correct side of in our history.
Let’s see
Emancipation? Nope, conservatives either defended slavery’s legality and morality or opposed its abolition.
Women’s suffrage? Nope.
Civil rights for minority groups? Again nope despite their revisionism, conservatives were very much opposed to Civil Rights if not on racial grounds, the folly of states rights ground.
Gay marriage? Nope.
And it will continue. Social conservatism especially is a flawed ideology because social conservatism cannot accept change and change is what drives society.

They have to fight the culture war since to not do so would mean having to fight the class war that is actually going on with it then also being clear which side is actually which.

Max out the Visa on guns, ammo, and body armor. Go on killing rampage. Leave your widow in debt.

Well, yeah, but if you buy a return ticket, that means you’re expecting to fail in your bid to become a Star!

I am really late, but a friend just told me a story from back in the 60s. Some girls from Chicago came down here to the boonies, and was told about the beer gardens we had down here. The host placed a row of a case of brown beer bottles upside down in a weeded garden bed. Wow!!!
