Susan Sarandon was on Late Night with Stephen Colbert last night gushing about how wonderful it is that the revolution has started and we’re all protesting at town halls and shit like that.
Ohferchristsakes, get over the words already.
Here’s the interview:
What did we forget, Susan? We forgot that now Republicans are in charge of all three branches of government. If they can ever persuade their sadistic Freedom Caucus wing to get onboard, they’ll be unstoppable.
And what else?
Well, your internet browsing history is no longer private. AND net neutrality is about to go down soon.
The CPB is getting defunded. No more Morning Edition and All Things Considered from Nice Polite Republicans.
And what else?
Oh, yes, white southern male Jefferson Beauregard Sessions will be the guy in charge of our voting rights monitors.
Look, Susan, a revolution is only as good as your ability to change the system. Protesting at town halls and flooding your congressman’s voicemail box is only going to take you so far if you can’t vote the fucking asshole out of office. And with all the gerrymandering and locks on state houses, it’s going to be very hard to displace them.
So, if they can get their act together, Republicans can do a lot of damage to ordinary, not rich people. And if Republicans are clever, they’ll make sure we can never organize effectively, never completely control the message and never be able to get enough votes in the right places to remove them.
Susan is a WMD who caused a lot of collateral damage because she can’t think a few moves ahead or get inside the heads of ruthless sociopaths.
Is Susan having any town halls soon?
