It Was Only a Joke

That’s what the radical right always says when somebody actually calls them out. Classic bully behavior. But in any case, how fucking delusional can you be? These people have a pretty exalted view of their place in the world & their relationship to the divine; but then I knew that, I grew up with the creeps.

One thought on “It Was Only a Joke

  1. On the morning after the 2000 election, a student here in Basel asked me what I thought about the Bush family. I said I did not like them because they are bullies. She did not know the word “bully,” but I knew she was a Harry Potter fan, so with a flash of insight, I said that the Bushes are like the Malfoy family. — And like you, I can tell a bully a mile away, because I grew up with them.
