The Karen Collection

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Opps, thought that was posted already.
It was, but way back on page 2. I wasn't sure that everyone would get that it's the same woman.

opps

It must have been another karen article on the same page with this karen. I only read the headline (not good) because I didn't want details about her avoiding charges.
Nothing about dropping charges on this loon, other than a white people petition.

Good. I was disappointed that charges were dropped.

I feel sorry for all the normal decent women named Karen, but I think it's a good thing to have an easily remembered and used term for people who insist on demonstrating their assholery in public. When seen, they should be videoed, ridiculed, shamed, and generally trashed until being an asshole is no longer rewarding to them.

Maybe CAT FAN would suffice. Nah, something like "vicpus" or "blivet" or "trumpist" or "suckcess" or "fubgod" might be better. But there's always the traditional "asshole" moniker.

They can't believe how despised they are, and how replaceable.

Somebody else learning that speech may be free but assholery carries a price.
Restaurant owner didn't like the fruit stand close by.

I had the image from the article that the fruit stand was right in front of the restaurant. Instead, it's in front of a strip mall parking lot and the restaurant is a good 200 yards away! Here's the video:


Video shows Southern California couple apparently harassing fruit vendors

You get the sense of things in the first 2 minutes. Then skip to about 5:00 to see a near-physical confrontation.

FTA:
... When the La Palma incident went viral, Yelp users began review- and photo-bombing Bergies’ now-disabled business page and uploading dozens of captioned screen captures of the owners. Multiple images taken inside or around the bar have since circulated on social media, some featuring what appears to be Ku Klux Klan imagery, including white paper cups placed upside down on the iconic Bergies bar and a white hooded figure in the parking lot....
:---P
... McAlonis, a former LAPD sergeant, assumed ownership of the building in 2015 and rebranded it Bergie’s....
Why am I not surprised?
... While the vendor seen in the video has asked not to be named, a GoFundMe to help the vendors secure the necessary permits was established Sunday night by Nayelie Ramirez, who identifies herself as the niece of the owner of La Palma Fresh Fruit. Contributions can be made here.
$7,377 raised of $5,000 goal

:---P Kens and Karens are proving to be excellent fundraisers for their targets. :lol:

Now I'm understanding more about how Trump managed to win the presidency.

We got some real STUPID people in this nation.

Yep. With literal use of "stupid."
We've all been places where the tour guide says "the people who lived during this time believed..." and we think it strange, but understand that those beliefs came from a limited world and limited ability to become educated. These stupid people today hold most of the world's accumulated knowledge literally in their hands and choose not to learn. Push them back under their stupid rocks.
