  •  Eileen B, what do you think about double tap drone (0+ / 0-)

    strikes that kill and maim first responders?  Do you think that's funny, too?

    •  She is not inferring drone strikes are funny: (7+ / 0-)

      She is satirizing the conspiracy theorists on the far right that believe that the US is engaged in espionage against the right wing - among many other paranoid theories involving the UN, HAARP, Chemtrails, etc. The reference is to drones monitoring the actions of these people.

      She is a long time poster who is not making light of drone strikes.

        satellites.  The drone joke is in appropriate for so many reasons.  

        Obama made a drone joke, too.  

        I guess people who think in groups can be desensitized to the point where they can make jokes about drones.  

        They can be desensitized to think these dirty wars are a good thing and collateral damage is okay, too...woopsy daisy, just killed some kids...shouldn't have been there with the cameraman...

        Torture isn't torture, because Alberto said so.  

        What else?  

        It's okay to cut funding to a weather satellite for the east coast after Hurricane Sandy...tra, la, la...point at Alex Jones and call everything CT, and it all goes away...tra, la, la

          Normally I would simply chalk it up to just a disagreement about whether or not it was in poor taste and move on. But, to think her comment was in poor taste (which reasonable people could disagree upon) and suddenly lump it in with Obama's joke, which did infer a "strike" and then to lump it into accusing her of "thinking in groups" and desensitization to dirty wars, collateral damage "whoopsy daisy", killing kids and torture is just not fair in my opinion.

          Simply pointing out that anything to do with Drones should not be made light of (which might be a reasonable opinion) and then attack her with by inferring some of the most reprehensible thinking to her is just not fair at all. Especially since I have seen her make so many sensitive comments that prove otherwise.

          The paranoid right wing thinks satellites spy on them and change weather, they also think drones spy on them - it relates to the topic. You believe it was in poor taste. That's ok, let's just move on. Peace
