Interesting skywriting at the Rose Bowl parade today.

Courtesy of SB Nation: 

Who would hijack a public sphere and turn a spectacle into an outlandish political platform. Donald Trump—'s opponents. 

Above all the Pasadena floats are planes writing anti-Trump slogans. Although the image is cut off, the writing says "Donald Trump likes to hate anybody." 

Parade workers even stopped to read all the anti-Trump slogans above them. 

One other sign read, "IOWANS DUMP TRUMP" possibly to distance themselves from his appearance at the Iowa-Iowa State game. 

The signs are very direct in their message as evident by the "America is Great, Trump is Disgusting" writing.

Personally I would not be at all surprised to learn that Trump paid for his himself in order to get more publicity and perhaps a little sympathy.

Or perhaps it's just somebody who has been paying attention to the things that Trump has been saying and who he associates with. Such as this guy from the World Net Daily website.

Courtesy of Politico: 

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump took to Facebook on Thursday morning to thank a right-wing conspiracy website for the “amazing honor” of naming him its Man of the Year. Trump told the publication, WorldNetDaily, that he “very much” appreciates its “informative polls and coverage.” 

WorldNetDaily’s founder and editor Joseph Farah is one of the nation’s leading purveyors of “birther” conspiracy theories — the repeatedly debunked notion that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya — publishing more than 600 posts on the topic. Even after Obama released his long-form birth certificate indicating his birth in Hawaii, Farah claimed that this proved nothing. Trump has frequently repeated these claims and Politico reported in 2011 that Farah frequently advised the billionaire investor and former reality show host.

As many of you may remember Trump is also a fan of Alex Jones and has appeared on his batshit crazy radio show quite a few times. 

Perhaps Donald Trump is less interested in becoming the Commander-in-Chief than he is in becoming the Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief.

But let's face it these are his people.

    That's not all..

    Well he is!

    The truth hurts. This should keep his twitter feed busy for awhile.

  5. Anita Winecooler5:11 PM

    And then there's THIS from FOX news, a freudian slip, perhaps?

    I read that a supporter of Rubio created the skywriting.

    While I appreciate the intention, I don't believe calling people "conspiracy theorists" as a derogatory term is a valid criticism. Conspiracies are happening all the time; they may be the single most prosecuted criminal charge. However, it has become a term of derision, often used by people to insinuate someone is irrational or holds nutty beliefs, i.e. when used to characterize people who don't believe the Official 911 Story (a myth), but also used to describe others who for example do not believe that Trig Palin was birthed by Sarah. In these cases, there are clearly "conspiracies" taking place (although in Trig's case, perhaps not as conspiracies are legally defined), so simply attempting to label someone a "conspiracy theorist" is more an indication of the labeler than the labeled. After all, even the Official 911 Story is a conspiracy, just not one that is supported by evidence or science.

      Sorry 7:06 p.m. there are some truly nut job conspiracies that come out of the Alex Jones site that seem quite insane. That Donald Trump believes and perpetuates things like con trails and other absurdities as per Alex Jones makes me sick.

    2. Anonymous1:13 PM

      I think we all agree that Alex Jones fosters some truly nutty conspiracies and it is troubling when our presidential candidates pander to them.

      I think the point Nikogriego was making was that to call someone a conspiracy theorist has become a term of derision, when in fact it shouldn't be. Conspiracies do exist and need to be called out. A person who calls out a conspiracy should not be automatically dismissed, persecuted or imprisoned. It's true that some conspiracy theorists are on the fringe, like the sad souls that seem convinced that the Newtown shootings were staged. There will always be that mindset in some and there's nothing that can be done about it. These are the Sarah Palin fans and the TV evangelist audience. It resonates at their level of understanding.

      On the other hand, other conspiracy theorists have changed history. We know them as whistleblowers, activists, journalists and heroes. These people see a conspiracy and call attention to it, too.

      The difference lies in whether it is a conspiracy born out of provable information i.e., Smedley Butler and the Business Plot, Woodward and Bernstein and Watergate etc, or is it a conspiracy born out of faith and belief - no proof is needed - or wanted. In fact, proof would prove to be antithetical to their conspiracy theory, i.e. It's the end times and Jesus is returning, global warming is a hoax. There's nothing that can enlighten a mind like that.

    The Republican Party is never ever going to let Trump win, even they know when to quit the theater of the absurd.

    Drip by drip the shit on Trump will come out. There still is a long way to go. Believe me even though the Rebublicans are nasty assholes they still have their limit and the old guard still has some power left.

    Trump is a tool and nothing more. he gets press from his nasty statements but the bottom line is they know he could never run America, ever. They are willing to let Hillary win and hope for a moderate Republican candidate in 2020.

    They don't want the hard work that needs to be done and they will ride Hillary Clinton's ass for the next 4 years, hoping all the while that the Tea Turds will fade, like Frankenstein who created the monster but lost control. They screwed themselves and they know it.

    When Hillary Clinton is made President, Palin can redirect her hate and idiocy all over again. We will never get rid of that bitch completely until her botox and face lifts no longer work. I saw a comment on another site that said for every inch her ass sags she loses supporters and no truer words were ever spoken.She has a shelf life like any product whether it be the pet rocks or the singing fish. In her case it is not pride goeth before the fall but age.

    When all her old fart supporters die [ and that is measured in within ten years] She will just be an OLD has been. wearing her wigs and way too much makeup like Mae West in her last years that was so sad to see, still thinking she is hot, a parody of her self and Palin is already close to this at almost 52. This is what happens when you build your world made of sand.

      This thread is not about Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin. You may want to seek help for your Palin obsession though.

    2. Our Lad3:13 AM

      Every thread is about Mrs. Palin in one way or another, fucko.

    3. Anonymous5:29 AM

      Palin's looks back in 2008 is what allowed her to get as far as she did.

    4. Anonymous6:15 AM

      Do you charge her for living rent free in your head?

    Trumps not real even he doesn't believe the shit he says. he pushes it to the limit and remains amazed at the anger out there and there is no denying the amount of anger. people who have lost their jobs, people who should have been able to retire and see no end in sight.

    But he is corporate personified. What the hell doe's he know about going without? He thinks we are all players in his reality tv show . How absurd, this man has never gone without a day in his life and yet he has suckered the ones that need it the most into believing he is looking out for their best interests.

    If only those Mexicans or any minority got kicked out well America would be great again! Corporate America are the real traitors, no profit is good enough and they take it out on the backs of their workers.

    Don't shop at Walmart they hate Unions, every retail store hates unions.Think of this when your shopping at Khols and all the other chain stores they have a wage limit, i know i have seen it an employee of ten years gets canned because they have reached the wage limit. and no it was not me i got out before the ten year mark thank dog.

    Get Trump in there and you ain't seen nothing yet.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
