Monday 10/11

Offense: “To every single person attacking Jon Gruden for his emails from over 10 years ago -- release all of YOUR emails over the last decade.

“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone"

-Lindy Li

Offense: “Domestic terrorist Ashli Babbitt died because she believed Trump’s deranged lies

Trump made a martyr out of her because she died in his failed coup

Just as Hitler glorified those who died in his failed Beer Hall coup

Different demon, same recruiting tactic for the next coup”

Tuesday 10/12

-Lavern Spicer

Offense: “They let Magic Johnson play basketball with FULL-BLOWN HIV but won’t let Kyrie Irving play because he won’t get a COVID shot.”

Wednesday 10/13

-Kim Klacik

Offense: “A look at #BuildBackBetter”

-Chris Vickery

Offense: “Set a date now. After that date, no hospital services for the willingly unvaccinated.”

Thursday 10/14

-Marjorie Taylor Greene

Offense: “The fascist NBA won’t let Kyrie Irving play for refusing a vaccine. 

But yet they still let Magic Johnson play with HIV.”

-Meidas Touch

Offense: “This ritual at last night’s Youngkin event mimics the Nazi ‘Blutfahne’ ceremonies, in which the Nazis celebrated a blood soaked flag taken from a failed coup attempt known as the Beer Hall Putsch.

The similarities are striking and chilling.”

-Richard D Wolff

Offense: “Inflation occurs when employers raise prices. Profit drives their decisions. But they dare not publicly admit that reason. Instead they blame gov't or rising wages or "shortages" etc.: anything/anyone but themselves. Dont be fooled.”

-New York Times Opinion

Offense: “Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida “announced at the end of last month that Australia was ‘not a free country,’” writes @vanbadham. “This was surprising news — most of all to Australians.”

-The Spectator

Offense: “‘If you’re serious about reducing your climate footprint, there is nothing more powerful you can do than decide not to have kids’

✍️ Tom Woodman”


Offense: “Oh no: Right-wingers have noticed that there is a difference between reviews by professional critics and self-reported ones by audience members.”

-Judd Legum

Offense: “1. The sudden interest in school boards is not an organic grassroots movement of angry parents. 

It is an effort orchestrated by seasoned right-wing political operatives who have formed a constellation of well-funded groups.”


Offense: “Tips from a former FBI hostage negotiator on how to deal with an anti-vaxxer at a holiday dinner via @BW”

Friday 10/15

-Ana Navarro Cardenas 

Offense: “I will never get tired of having a kind President.”

-President Biden

Offense: “When I took office eight months ago, we inherited an economy in crisis and less than 1% of adults were vaccinated.

Now, we’re creating an average of 600,000 jobs a month and nearly 80% of eligible Americans have received at least one shot.

That’s progress.”

-George Takei

Offense: “If Dave Chappelle had so blatantly attacked another minority group, such as Asians, Muslims, or Jews, would Netflix have so readily stood by his artistic freedom? It’s hard not to feel like trans people are considered fair game in today’s America. This is why we must speak out.”

-Elizabeth Drew

Offense [deleted]: “A perfect last name for a pol who’s stabbed at a town meeting. British lawmaker dies after being stabbed multiple times while meeting with constituents, police say

David Amess.”

Saturday 10/16

-Carl Beijer 

Offense: “It’s funny how ignorant Americans never ask folks from the Soviet Union what they thought about breadlines. In my experience, there’s a lot of nostalgia for the sense of community they fostered. The bread shortages themselves were nbd”

-Ian Millhiser

Offense: “I’ve never understood why Supreme Court justices believe that “I’m not taking away your voting rights because I’m a Republican, I’m taking them away because of my judicial philosophy” is a good argument.”

Sunday 10/17

-Ruth Marcus 

Offense: “In Madison, Wis. By now I should know better but: I get in elevator. It stops on lower floor. Man steps in, unmasked. Sign in elevator says masks required. Me, getting out: “you know, it would be really nice if you wore a mask.” Man: “I don’t care what you think.” America 2021.”


Offense: “Extremism on the right is being a literal Nazi and extremism on the left is wanting to stop criminalizing poverty and hold police accountable/drastically reduce their huge budgets to support community programs and tax corporations to improve the quality of life of the masses.”

-Dana Larsen

Offense: “When a child goes missing there are amber alerts, news stories and a lot of attention. Because it's a rare event.”

Monday 10/18

-Jeff Teidrich

Offense: “Colin Powell didn't die because he was vaccinated. he died because you weren't”

-The White House

Offense: “The cost of the Build Back Better Agenda is $0.

The President's plan won't add to our national deficit and no one making under $400,000 per year will see their taxes go up a single penny. It's fully paid for by ensuring big corporations and the very wealthy pay their fair share.

-Jackson Mahomes 

Offense: “I want to sincerely apologize for accidentally being on the Sean Taylor #21 at FedEx Field. We were directed to stand in that area and I meant absolutely no disrespect to him or his family.”
