Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best Comments

Bebe Rexha was hit in the face by a phone thrown by an audience member in NYC. Meanwhile Bad Bunny addressed the viral video from January that appeared to show him throwing a fan’s phone “into the ocean.” “I don’t think phones should be thrown,” concludes DaBaby, and I gotta agree, unless you’re throwing a phone at DaBaby. Your best comments from this week are below.

JFC, will these cretinous pieces of shit stop assaulting women. She’s doing her job and regardless of what these fuckheads think is funny or they’re entitled to do, she should be safe to do her work. Fucking despicable.

Useful reminders:

  1. Local police became the absolute backbone of the Nazi Party following the Night of the Long Knives, when the unemployed thugs who were the majority of Brown Shirts were all purged. Local and national police also have been one of the pillars of every fascist movement since. BTW, fascist movements have always turned a blind eye at best to corruption, and more often actively encouraged it; it’s one of the principal ways they reward their foot soldiers.

  2. NYPD is currently in the midst of a scandal involving the “benefits cards” sold for a dollar to members of each of its various unions (patrolmen, sergeants, detectives, etc.) that are effectively get-out-of-jail-free cards for the friends and relatives of police. A traffic cop assigned to Staten Island got in trouble, and is now suing the department in federal court, because he pulled over and then issued a ticket to a friend of the city’s top-ranking uniformed officer. NYPD brass is in deep shit over this, because non-union command personnel have made it a policy to honor benefits cards.

  3. Remember the Costco shooting in June 2019, when an off-duty LAPD cop executed a schizophrenic man who’d bumped into him in a sample line, and for good measure shot the man’s parents while they were trying to restrain their son? I witnessed it, I’ve testified in both criminal and civil proceedings arising from it, and I’m going to be testifying in the criminal trial brought by the Attorney General’s office after the grand jury convened by the local district attorney failed to return an indictment. (This happened because the district attorney – who depends heavily on the votes of the tens of thousands of LA, Orange County, and San Diego police and their families who live in my county – almost certainly suppressed evidence that contradicted the cop’s testimony.)

There are some good cops, but the bad ones relentlessly hound them out of the occupation, like what happened to Sgt. Dume here and what happened to the NYPD cop in the benefits card case. So yes, for all intents and purposes, A fuckin’ C, A fuckin’ B.

Trent Reznor’s career has been fascinating to watch. He’s gone from this skinny, angry, depressed kid to scoring soundtracks, Oscars, marriage and kids of his own. Good for him.

Someone once described Yeezus as hip-hop’s “In Utero”, and it’s stuck with me as the most apt description of not just the music but where both Kurt Cobain and Kanye were in their life and career. I used to think Kanye made it out, that he aired his demons and was on the path to betterment. Unfortunately he too was barreling towards a type of self destruction.

I still think its his best album, even if I’m not exactly enthusiastic to listen to Kayne’s music at this point.

I’ll believe it when I see it. There’s a million reasons it may never see the light of day, even if it exists. That being said, boy, I really want to see it.
