Nazis are bad

Posted on Updated on

Uber just recently sent it’s patrons an email declaring the following:

“We were horrified by the neo-Nazi demonstration that took place in Charlottesville…  There is simply no place for this type of bigotry, discrimination, and hate.”

Good to see Uber bravely going on the record that they don’t support Nazis.  Actually, other than a couple hundred people in the entire country, we’re fairly certain that that’s the general consensus of all Americans.  We’re curious though why Uber needed to add the words this type of before “bigotry, discrimination and hate.”  One possible conclusion is that other types of bigotry, discrimination and hate are just fine.


The fact that those following Nazi values have such extreme bigotry and hate isn’t surprising, we just didn’t know that it was only matched by their hate for mosquitoes.


Just for the record, since we’re all being brave in our declarations against the Nazis and anything they may stand for, we at the Confederacy of Drones consider them vile, ignorant, attention starved clowns who’s values are far from the values that all other Americans hold dear.  But we’ll go one step further and state that all bigotry, discrimination and hate is equally repugnant no matter who’s preaching it.  Too bad Uber wasn’t brave enough to say that.


Masthead Masters

Posted on Updated on

The Washington Post recently unveiled their thought provoking new masthead.  See below.


It got us to thinking that there must have been quite a few selections considered before landing on Democracy Dies in the Dark.  Our crack team of reporters then made it their mission to scour the streets of DC to find the rejected mastheads. And by “scour” we mean dumpster diving behind WaPo’s headquarters.  Buried deeply beneath the  tear soaked We’re With Her t-shirts and the reams of used Saul Alinsky checklists, we found the following mother load of discarded mastheads.




The disingenuous left

Springsteen sings the bathroom choice blues

Posted on Updated on


Sung to the tune of Born in the USA

Got in a bathroom jam.
Cancelled out on Greensboro, man.
North Carolina’s like a foreign land.
Said, “you gotta pee in the proper can.


Need the girls room to do my business in.
Want to have my own GYN.
Doc doesn’t realize that I am The Boss.
All he says is “turn your head and cough.

Gettin’ attention in the media.
The rest of you have a phobia.

Gotta love that CNN.
Said “go ahead, change your name to Gwen.

Born in the USA, with the wrong gen-italia.
Can stand up to piss and all they say is “duh.

I’m willin to be born different from men.
Willin to be born, ‘cept born again.


Born in the USA, with the wrong gen-italia.
I have wrong gen-italia, wrong gen-italia.

A tomb and a newspaper

Posted on Updated on


If you happen to take the Washington Post you’ll notice something so obviously missing in the Easter Sunday edition that you’ll doubt your calendar.  Not a single mention of Easter in this national newspaper except for a reference to it in the Metro Section in an article associated with foot washing.  It wasn’t worthy of the national news section, nor the international news section, nor the style section, nor sports, nor opinion.  One article in Metro.

Maybe their own calendar is broken.
