More Aberdeen Truck Vulgarity Speaks Accidental Truth

What is it about Aberdeen men and trucks and vulgarity?

This pickup artist sporting this decal combining Q-Anon and Punisher, the latter a favorite of angry white male traitors misinterpreting authorial intent, still manages to speak some truth: promoting lies and violence does not enhance one’s manhood.

The driver speaks, perhaps, from experience.

    Not just in Aberdeen, my friend. The ones who really crack me up are the ones who hang two larger-than-life-size rubber testicles on their trucks. As my Kentucky grandmother used to say, “I’ve heard bulls fart before.” And “Empty trucks make a lot of noise.”

    Former President Bush call out these terrorists in a speech today. These, that post hate on their gas guzzlers, are cut from the same cloth as those that planned and carried out the 9/11 attacks. Terrorism is what it is.

    I’d like to think that after he put his ‘mark’ on his side, she responded with the quote on her side.

    Eh, the vulgarity is on the left side. I don’t see anything wrong with the right side. Sure, it’s cheeky, but I’m thinking the guy’s wife put it there, and he’s too dumb to figure it out.

    Sorry Donald Pay, women don’t think like that. It is vulgar and I only see these stickers on male vehicles. Unfortunately, I see these offensive stickers on trucks outside the bars on Main Street, the car derby, the rodeo, and fishing tournaments. I see lots of “Children on board” and “My child was student of the week in 7th grade” bumper stickers in my neighborhood. I notice more signs in yards that I find inappropriate as well like “Trespassers will be shot” and a smiley face along side.

    I noticed this summer in the state park near us that Trump flags were flown with ORVs and Polaris, even golf carts. The last two I saw were so huge and offensive that my left middle finger flew up in defense and waved all on it’s own. Please keep political flags out of state parks! Is nothing sacred?

    I was in the office at school one day a dozen years ago when a custodian checked out wearing a t-shirt that said “Forget the horse, ride a cowgirl instead.” I noticed it right away and commented while his supervisor sat at his desk. Nobody said anything to this young man ALL DAY. My goodness, he even had lunchroom duty with k-12. How could anyone not say anything?

    Imagine George Washington and other founding fathers and mothers reading present day bumper stickers, t-shirts, flags, and yard signs. How would they define vulgar, offensive, and inappropriate? What use to be unacceptable just a few years ago is now becoming main stream thanks to the disruption of Donald Grump. His swearing in public and his verbiage caused my Auntie to switch to Independent after 70 years as a Republican.

    You really have to look at who’s putting this stuff on. Idiots are identifying themselves and it makes it easier to avoid them in business and personally. It’s a good thing.

    I put this in the same garbage pile as blm,antifa and other racist symbols. But,you know that pesky 1st amendment.

  8. jerry 2021-09-11

    Speaking of garbage piles, how ya been?

    These are the terrorist’s in our midst. Former President Bush call them for what they are.

    “In perhaps the most important words spoken in his political career, Bush in his remarks at the crash site of United Airlines Flight 93 drew a straight line between the 9/11 terrorists and the 1/6 terrorists. “We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within,” he said. “There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit.” He added, “It is our continuing duty to confront them.” Bush’s words were an indictment not only of the violent MAGA insurrectionists but also, implicitly, of his party that coddles them and the leader whom the 1/6 terrorists wanted to install by force.” WAPO 9.11.21

    Quite a stretch, even for you.

  11. jerry 2021-09-11

    Q stands for terrorist. No stretch in that. This pickup belongs to “children of the same foul spirit”. Dude’s folks must be proud to have spawned such a miserable excuse.

  12. Porter Lansing 2021-09-11

    With no entertainment, prisoners will often defile their cell and even themselves.,

  13. Mark Anderson 2021-09-11

    LCJ identifies himself. A lonely boy trying to incite people. So sad.

  14. sx123 2021-09-11

    Punisher is my favorite because he’s all skill, no super powers. To mix punisher with qanon is pure blasphemy. :-)

  15. LCJ 2021-09-11

    When you free your self from your moms basement and work hard to be proud of yourself post some kind of intelligent talking point. Your reverse racism is extremely cowardly

  16. M 2021-09-12

    Well, I’d say that all these Marvel movies full of vigilante violence have a grip on the popular culture, especially the Republicans and people like sx123. Trump is their voice, the movie industry entertains them with propaganda and violent heroism, social media platforms are their unregulated forms of communication, and guns give them the bravado to show their anger with backup. They join an online group of other angry young or old white men, wear certain colors, maybe get a couple tattoos and slap some stickers on the car. These nonthinkers are the thugs of a feather who flock together without fear. Remember the storming of the Michigan state capitol building? That test run was a green light for the 1-6 insurrection.

    It all starts with crap like this truck and the acceptability of it all. We all know intimidation when we see it.

  17. M 2021-09-12

    P.S. I like the old “Thank a veteran” or “If you can read this, you’re too close” bumper stickers and I appreciate ONLY state and national park stickers on windshields. All others should be deemed a distraction.

  18. kurtz 2021-09-12

    My home state of South Dakota doesn’t have a lock on ignorance, by any stretch. Last year we were shopping in Bernalillo and a guy in a pickup bearing Trump/Pence, NRA window decals raced around us shouting obscenities, waving his middle finger and trying to provoke a response. There are Bernie 2016 and RESIST bumper stickers on our Tundra.

    Who is this Punisher person and why is he being punished?

    Come to the Conservatives with Common Sense breakfast this morning for a surprise guest deliverer of the Opening Rant which will be based on a cartoon character something like Punisher

    LCJ’s comment, of course, adds nothing to the discussion, other than maybe to support the point of the driver’s right-side decal. There is no such thing as reverse racism; since racism is integrally related to a power dynamic this has not yet been reversed. The statement that angry white males seeking to preserve their racist supremacy like the Q-Punisher symbol is not racist in any way.

    And I’m writing from the second story of a house I own. My mom has no relevance to this discussion and no involvement in the creation of this blog post.

  21. Cory Allen Heidelberger Post author | 2021-09-12

    BLM is not racist. Antifa is not racist. White supremacists flying the Punisher symbol are usually racist and promote lawless violence.

  22. jerry 2021-09-12

    Anyone who is NOT Antifa (anti fascism) is a white supremist that has no business in America. They need to go to some other country that promotes Fascism like Hungary. I hear the goulash is good there LCJ. Please, you and the rest of ” “children of the same foul spirit”, leave at once, your un-American terrorist stench is overbearing.

  23. Porter Lansing 2021-09-12

    Reverse racism
    Reverse racism or reverse discrimination is the concept that affirmative action and similar color-conscious programs for redressing racial inequality are a form of anti-white racism. The concept is often associated with conservative social movements and the belief that social and economic gains by black people in the United States and elsewhere cause disadvantages for white people.

    In Short ~ reverse racism is false victimhood by MAGA’s who’ve made lazy life choices, sit on barstools, and blame BIPOC’s for their failed lives.

    V, You’re hanging out with the wrong women. As the song said, “I like my women just a little on the trashy side.” You’re probably right, though. A woman is more likely to say that as a put down in the moment, but not put it up for all the world to see. Women generally are as vulgar as men, they just have more sense about when and how to express it.

  25. W R Old Guy 2021-09-12

    There has been an elderly gentleman seen driving around downtown RC with a billboard strapped to the top of his car with this message;

    “F–K BIDEN AND F–K YOU IF YOU VOTED FOR HIM.” There are no missing letters on the billboard. I haven’t seen him for a few days. Maybe someone took his car keys.

    I like the bumper sticker that says; “IF YOU CAN READ THIS I’M NOT IMPRESSED. MOST PEOPLE CAN READ.”

  26. ArloBlundt 2021-09-12

    Well..I don’t like bumper stickers as they are terrible for your paint and I don’y read comic books or go to comic book movies as I’m over 12. I did affix a sticker to my rear window, in the corner, which my children gave me. It says “Caution: Slow Driver: Obeys Speed Limit.

  27. cibvet 2021-09-12

    Donald pay–If women are generally as vulgar as men, your statement, you might consider some different female company. If your opinion deals with the unexpressed thoughts women have, you could possibly be right. I don’t read minds.

  28. mike from iowa 2021-09-12

    For any sex people, what good is langwidge without seasoning? I can’t say all women cuss, but, some have been known to put mule skinners to shame with raunchy vocabulary.

  29. cibvet 2021-09-12

    If language is a form of communication, I’m unsure how obscenities and vulgarities add to normal conversation other than to establish male bravado, sort of like hanging a scrotum on your receiver hitch. Can’t comment of the other statement as I do not know any mule skinners.

  30. mike from iowa 2021-09-12

    Think of vulgarities as the color commentators on MNF football broadcasts.

  31. O 2021-09-12

    Jerry, this Bush guy you refer to seems like he would have been a decent president. Too bad this is not the man who was in office at the time.

  32. Donald Pay 2021-09-12

    Shakespeare was a writer of classic vulgarity. He use obscenity, double entendres, cursing in most of his plays. I think he might like that truck.

    SIR ANDREW
    But it becomes me well enough, does ’t not?
    SIR TOBY BELCH
    Excellent; it hangs like flax on a distaff; and I
    hope to see a housewife take thee between her legs
    and spin it off.

    You can be vulgar, and be artful. I rest my case.

  33. jerry 2021-09-12

    O, I never said that he was a good president, he wasn’t, as you clearly know. What he just said though, does not make up for the blood on his hands. His words though, speak the truth in this case, or do you disagree with his description of the terrorists within?

  34. O 2021-09-12

    Jerry, sorry, I was going for sarcasm. The point I (unsuccessfully) was going for was that he has been far more thoughtful as an ex-president than he ever was as a president. I also would say he is not a bright man; certainly not while in office. So now that he seems to be more rational, human, or aware, that must be seen as a telling sign of how real the domestic terrorist threat is in/to the US and how his silence on the issue until more recently demonstrates that is a partisan divide with these domestic terrorists falling into camps on the right.

  35. jerry 2021-09-13

    Yes O, I couldn’t agree more with you. For all of the evil bush put in our lap, after 20 years, he did get something right with that terrorism comparison, Now the republicans are gonna have to wear that anvil and hope they don’t step off a pier or Pierre.

  36. Francis Schaffer 2021-09-13

    It is pretty easy to go wrong when you have saddled yourself with Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. Also, I believe some of you may be over estimating the truck owner’s status with women.

    You know Arlo, I stopped collecting comics when I was a freshman in high school. A friend and I were going to publish a fanzine and a school reporter wanted to publish an article about us. We meet at lunch and decided comics were over, we wanted to be able to date. Times have changed. I sold all my comics over 20 years ago at a local comic convention. Every DC and most of the Marvel’s from the 60s. A few thousand dollars. A dealer bought them all right before the event, he made me clear my booth. We needed the money for our annual summer trip to So. Dak. They would be valued at least half a million today. Times have really changed. My son collected comics he has mostly Marvels, first wolverine etc all in bags and boxes. They are still in his former room. He told me to sell them but I’m just letting them set in their bags and boxes. He has to retire someday. I did like Starro the Conqueror in the recent Suicide Squad movie it reminded me of my childhood, otherwise I’m in agreement on the ridiculousness of our culture in its relation to comic books. All the talent and energy and money put into those movies, Martin Scorsese is right.

    Mr. Old Guy, I think that fellow has occasional health bouts and has to lay low on occasion to regenerate his constitution. I’m sure he’ll be back out and about in no time.

    M, well said.

    …the GOP is a cult of personality
    teeming with extremism, racism, malice, conspiracy theories, cranks, violence, fascists, militias and misinformation. It is the singularly greatest driver of American weakness and division. It’s nativism, ignorance and hysteria have had a profoundly terrible effect on the country….

    @SteveSchmidtSES twitter, today

    Repeating M:

    “Republicans and people like sx123….Trump is their voice, the movie industry entertains them with propaganda and violent heroism, social media platforms are their unregulated forms of communication, and guns give them the bravado to show their anger with backup. They join an online group of other angry young or old white men, wear certain colors, maybe get a couple tattoos and slap some stickers on the car.
