[WONKETTE HEADLINE: Proud Boys Tore Down A COVID-19 Memorial, Because Caring That People Died Is For Commies ]

In recent weeks, the covidiots have turned. Now, those at anti-lockdown protests are not only demanding their right to defy stay-at-home orders and social distancing protocols, they're not only asking that they get to risk other people's lives, they are demanding that everyone else join them. They grab at the masks of reporters who cover the rally and at those belonging to counterprotesters. They get in people's faces. They scream. If they were leftists this would be a super big deal and Tucker Carlson would have had a thousand fainting spells by now, but they're not.

One thing that would be very big news if these people were liberals but is not because they're not is that last week, during an anti-lockdown rally in Spokane, Washington, a bunch of Proud Boys trashed a memorial to COVID-19 victims. A memorial made out of crosses meant to represent people who have died from the novel coronavirus, two of which they broke. Crosses. You know, like the one Jesus hung on?

The memorial had been put together by activist Tom Robinson, who runs the Stronger Together Spokane Facebook page. Robinson also attended the protest as a counterprotester, where he planned to simply stand with his memorial and not bother anybody. This did not work out as planned, because these people are the biggest assholes on earth. A video posted to the group's Facebook page show the protesters harassing Robinson, screaming at him to take off his mask and otherwise acting like the school bullies in a John Hughes movie.

The primary antagonist in the video was a Seattle Proud Boy who called himself "Milkshake," but whose real name is Daniel Lyons Scott. "Milkshake" wore a midriff bulletproof vest and a Hawaiian shirt — aka "big luau," get it, official shirts of "Boogaloo Boys," the far-right fanatics hoping that the pandemic will lead to a race war.

The video also features a man old enough to have grey hair taunting Robinson and claiming that he "knows" that this is all a hoax and a very aggressive woman wielding a flag. Here are their pictures, should you happen to live in the area and want to avoid people who will probably infect you with COVID-19. Or, you know, if you work in human resources.

Tom Robinson told the Spokesman-Review that he felt afraid for his safety and so left the area. When he returned, he found his memorial had been destroyed.

Soon after, Seattle area Proud Boys Zac Staggs, Josh Hanks, and Daniel "Milkshake" Lyons Scott posted a video to TikTok in which they actually bragged about tearing the memorial down, writing "Antifa made a fear propaganda cemetery. We cleaned it up. We don't stand for COMMUNIST FEAR" as a caption on a picture of it. The image then switches to a picture of the crosses in a pile on the ground, with a hand doing the "OK" symbol now associated with "White Power" over it. Because of course.

[TikTok of the fromage-for-brains doing just that. Jerks.]

Charming people, no?

Robinson has since put the memorial back together, replacing the two crosses broken by the Proud Boys in their attempt to stamp out "communist fear." Most likely, unless these douchenozzles keel over and die from COVID-19, everyone involved will remain at an impasse. Because that's just how things are now.

Virginia pastor who defiantly held church service dies of coronavirus

He practiced what he preached — then he died of coronavirus.

An evangelical pastor died of COVID-19 just weeks after proudly showing off how packed his Virginia church was — and vowing to keep preaching “unless I’m in jail or the hospital.”

In his last known in-person service on March 22, Bishop Gerald O. Glenn got his congregation at Richmond’s New Deliverance Evangelistic Church to stand to prove how many were there despite warnings against gatherings of more than 10 people.

“I firmly believe that God is larger than this dreaded virus. You can quote me on that,” he said, repeating it a second time to claps, saying that “people are healed” in his church.

Happily announcing he was being “controversial” by being “in violation” of safety protocols — with “way more than 10 people” at the church — he vowed to keep his church open “unless I’m in jail or the hospital.”

“I am essential,” he said of remaining open, adding, “I’m a preacher — I talk to God!”

On Sunday, his church announced “with an exceedingly sorrowful and heavy heart” that the pastor had died a week after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

His wife, Marcietia Glenn, is also sick with the bug, with church members offering their prayers.

Their daughter, Mar-Gerie Crawley, told WTVR that her father initially dismissed his symptoms because he has a condition that often leads to fevers and infections.

She is now urging everyone to stay home.

“It becomes very real to you,” she told WTVR after her parents’ diagnoses.

“I just beg people to understand the severity and the seriousness of this, because people are saying it’s not just about us, it’s about everyone around us.”

Richard Spencer, #racist themarysue.com

Richard Spencer has always been a Nazi. He worked hard to trick people and mainstream media outlets into thinking his brand of white nationalism could be palatable to regular people and even have a legitimate place in the modern political discourse. He wears fancy suits and speaks eloquently and he doesn’t keep his beliefs to 8chan or basement klan meetings, instead opting to create the sort of public presence that Twitter refuses to ban and that major outlets write near-fawning profiles of. He’s also responsible for coining the term “alt-right” in an ultimately successful attempt to mollify the image of actual Nazis.

But it was always a scam. That should have been clear to anyone paying attention, but instead, we’ve seen him continue to book cable news appearances (he was just on CNN less than four months ago) and ignite debates over how just how much of a Nazi does a person have to be to justify punching them without it somehow signifying a loss of political civility. Richard Spencer wanted to legitimize a violent movement by giving it a polite, clean-cut face and it’s absolutely shameful how well his grift worked on a national scale.

[Picture of Tweet by Aamer Rahman saying, “Is it really okay to punch Nazis?”]

Milo Yiannopoulos, another obnoxious face of the “alt-right” movement, posted a video to YouTube Sunday night that contains audio of a person Milo claims is Spencer, screaming a racist diatribe about enslaving and dominating groups of people.

Warning: The audio here is incredibly disturbing….

[SUBMITTER NOTE: Below I put in transcript of Audio….Imagine this guy ranting this while being dragged away by cops if you want a laugh….]

We are coming back here like a fucking hundred times! I am so mad! I am so fucking mad at these people! They don’t do this to fucking me! We’re going to fucking ritualistically humiliate them! I am coming back here every fucking weekend if I have to! Like, this is never over! I win! They fucking lose! That’s how the world fucking works! Little fucking kikes; They get ruled by people like me! Little fucking octaroons….I fucking….My fucking ancestors enslaved those fucking pieces of shit! I rule the fucking world! Those pieces of shit get ruled by people like me! They look up and see a face like mine, looking down at them! That's how the world fucking works! We are going to destroy this fucking town!

The audio, which includes use of slurs like “kikes” and “octaroons,” was allegedly taken shortly after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville where counter-protester Heather Heyer was murdered.

“We are coming back here like a hundred fucking times,” Spencer can be heard saying, and the “here” he’s referring to is presumably Charlottesville. “I am so mad. I am so mad at these fucking people.”

“They don’t do this to fucking me,” he screamed. “We’re going to ritualistically humiliate them. I am coming back here every fucking weekend if I have to. Like this is never over! I win! They fucking lose!”

This is horrific but again, it doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know about Spencer, assuming you weren’t blinded by his “upstanding young man” charade.

AND THE WINNER OF THE RONALD REAGAN WITH A BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN SONG AWARD GOES TO: DONALD J. TRUMP!

[From: THE MARY SUE ]

Remember at the end of Avengers: Endgame when Thanos said, “I am inevitable” and snapped his fingers before realizing that he didn’t have the Infinity Stones, but rather, Tony Stark did? Well, someone on Trump’s campaign decided that it would be a great idea to … put Trump’s face over Thanos in the scene in which he is losing.

To be quite honest, I’m 90% sure that whoever made this video has absolutely no idea what they’re doing and was just trying to be relevant, and that makes this infinitely funnier to me. Basically, whoever made this video for Team Trump decided that none of the footage of the brief moment of victory for Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War was worth it and, instead, decided that Avengers: Endgame—a movie where Thanos loses not once, but twice—was a better use of their time. Not only that, but they specifically picked this scene where, in the next shot, Thanos realizes that it is, in fact, Tony Stark who is wielding the power of the Infinity Stones, and he snaps away Thanos and his entire army.

Tony Stark did not die for Republicans to think that Thanos won.

The video in question was posted by the Trump War Room, and they very clearly took Thanos’s threat of his inevitability in the completely wrong way and made this awful video.

Trump War Room (Text TRUMP to 88022)
House Democrats can push their sham impeachment all they want.
President Trump's re-election is 𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘃𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲.
[Video of Endgame scene with Thanos with Trump’s head superimposed.
He snaps his fingers and The Democrats (standing at the podium, announcing
Impeachment) turn to dust.

Now, hear me out: Who willingly wants to be Thanos? Sure, not considering the rest of the scene’s context is one thing, but why make yourself the villain? A villain who believes that if he just wipes out half the population of the universe, we can save on resources and stop—you know, that probably would be Trump’s climate change solution, if he believed in it. I get it now.

Besides that, it’s just baffling to me that anyone thought it was a good idea to make Trump Thanos. Like … can anyone on Trump’s team read?

Twitter, understandably, tore this to shreds. Truly, the next shot is Tony Stark. At first, many just began to explain the scene to them:

(A BUNCH OF TWEETS DOING JUST THAT AND EXPLAINING THAT THANOS WAS THE VILLAIN AND HE LOSES)

And then … came the jokes. The sweet, beautiful, nerdy jokes.

(SIMILAR AS ABOVE WITH WITH IRON MAN DEPICTED AS THE CONSTITUTION, NANCY PELOSI, ETC., THE HULK PUNCHING TRUMP AND WHATNOT. THERE’S ALSO AN AWESOME MORE ACCURATE RE-EDIT OF SAID VIDEO CLIP WITH “TRUMPOS” GETTING DUSTED BY “IRON SCHIFF” AND A STILL OF “IRON PELOSI”.

The best part? This makes Nancy Pelosi, technically, Iron Man. She gets to swoop in at the end and snap her fingers and win all because Trump thinks he’s untouchable and always going to win, and … you know, it’s not that they’re wrong with this comparison, but they probably shouldn’t be so proud of it?

Anyway, I don’t like that I have to watch Donald Trump’s face on a Marvel property, but I do like that this then makes the American people and the Democratic party the Tony Stark of this situation. Your first term might have been “inevitable,” but as Tony Stark says, I am Iron Man. Well … that doesn’t work, but you get the point. We’re going to win, Mr. Stark.
