This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re getting back to our roots and finally addressing the elephant in the room and the horrible mess it continues to make. What we find most interesting about this elephant’s mess is that it’s been going on for so long and even now with a Donkey in charge of things, the mess has yet to disappear. Chop, chop Donkey! By the way, we’re talking about Republicans here and not actual elephants. Real elephants are cool. Real Republicans are not.
In fact, they’ve been uncool for a really long time. How do we know this? Because it’s measurable. We have actual numbers to reflect the lack of coolness on the part of the Republican Party. Had the minimum wage laws first enacted in the 1930s followed their set trajectory and actually kept up with inflation over the decades, the current minimum wage in the U.S. would be around $30/hr. Yet asking for $15/hr is met with resistance akin to making root canals mandatory procedures for everyone. So what happened? Mainly, the 1970s Republican Party happened. They rolled up in their shiny new Ford Mavericks, rockin’ platform shoes, sportin’ feathered mullet hairdos and proceeded to sh*t all over the place.
And guess what? THEY’RE STILL DOING IT! The elephant in the room just keeps going. Just this week, old Ted Cruz took to the steps of the Supreme Court in protest of the house passing a bill to make Washington D.C. our nation’s 51st state. Ted’s not one to keep his mouth shut so naturally he flopped open his jaw and spewed some of the most hypocritical BS we’ve ever heard. Honestly, any reason to mock the Zodiac Killer is acceptable in our book, so tune in to hear exactly what he said and why he said it.
And if Ted’s word vomit wasn’t bad enough, did you hear what North Carolina’s Madison Cawthorn did last week? He introduced something he called the “Donument Act” – yes, he named it himself and considering he has no formal education or experience in much of anything other than filing lawsuits, we’re not surprised. This act proposes we make Donald Trump’s great wall a national monument in order to preserve it from wall-destroying Demoncrats. Nice try, kid.
Now we acknowledge that not all elephants are created equal. Indeed, some of the worst ones aren’t even politicians. He might not hold political office, but Mike Lindell (the My Pillow guy) is as vocal and as annoying as it gets. He’s so off his rocker insane that even Fox News cut him off air during his last interview. He now makes his rounds on conspiracy theory YouTube channels and podcasts hosted by sweaty five-shirted guys named Steve Bannon, where he pushes the Republican-held belief that the 2020 election was rigged by the evil, child murdering dirty liberals. In his quest to further this ridiculous rhetoric, this week Mike launched his own social media platform called FRANKSPEECH.COM. Be sure to listen to hear about what happened when the site went live. Let’s just say it did not go well, but it was incredibly funny nonetheless.
So tune in to hear all about the many messes Republicans continue to make, plus MORE cause this week we’re finally addressing The Elephant in the Room.
