Imagine a family sitting around the dinner table halfway around the world in a country you’ve never heard of. They get wiped out by a bomb.
Now, here’s the kicker that should make us all upset. It was a white man who dropped the bomb.
I know, I know. That’s horrifying. We need a diverse group dropping bombs and killing innocent people because, after all, diversity is our strength. Well, New Hampshire has a U.S. Senate candidate promising to make war awesome as Jeremy Kauffman released his recent War is Gay ad.
“It is time to diversify the murderous military industrial complex,” Kauffman says in the ad. “We need to make the nukes gay, and that’s why I’m running for office. Like my fellow Democrats and Republicans, I will support every war, I will support stealing billions of dollars from Americans to kill innocent people, but we are going to make it so gay.”
Kauffman added: “It will go down in the history books. We will say never have so many genders and so many races killed innocent people. Let’s bomb Yemen, but let’s make sure a rainbow of skin colors are dropping those bombs. These are going to be the gayest, transist murders the United States has ever performed. That’s what I stand for as the Chief Diversity Officer at Halliburton, and that’s what I’ll do once elected to the United States Senate. I’m Jeremy Kaufman, and I’m gay for this message.”
Of course, if you watched the ad, you know it was facetious. But Kauffman is a real candidate, running for Senate with the Libertarian Party, with a real platform promoting liberty. And he doesn’t work for Halliburton, although the war profiteering company does have a diversity and inclusion page. Kauffman is the founder of LBRY, a decentralized, blockchain-based file sharing network.
I don’t live in New Hampshire, but if I did, I’d waste some time to go vote for Kauffman. It’s nice to see a politician mock the political, bureaucratic and corporate class.
“Alright, here’s what we do about Ukraine and Russia. Everyone who wants war against Russia should go to Ukraine. If you’re a senator that wants to use the military for Ukraine, go. Send your kids. If you’re a pundit that wants war in Ukraine, go. Go yourself. Send your kids. Bring your guns. Alright, don’t compel others, do it yourself.”
Kauffman also has an offer we can all embrace: “On behalf of America, I’d like to make an offer to Vladimir Putin. You, get out of Ukraine and in exchange, we will give you the state of Massachusetts.”
Although through humor, Kauffman has some serious points to make one the military draft, which is slavery, as well as how the welfare state creates homelessness and that the last two years of a “pandemic” has been a fraud with politicians motivated solely by poll numbers. He also wants to end the Department of Education, something the liars in the GOP once promised it would do.
Of course, Kauffman also has some other facetious messages:
“There’s been a lot of talk in the media about this so-called don’t say gay bill. And some people asked what am I going to do about it. My answer is nothing because it’s Florida, they can do whatever they want. But, I do have something I want to work on here at the federal level which is the Must Say Retarded Act. You know, for too long this word has been obscured and people want to come up with euphemisms for it. It’s ridiculous. So, if you’re unwilling to say the word retarded or you put an asterisks in it, straight to jail.”
The facetious ones may be funny, but they make a point.
