RIP Elmo, you were misunderstood and red


freeski919

"tell me what I want to know, or the tickling continues."


Majestic_Jackass

How much tickling constitutes a war crime.


cocoamix

He's now Torture Me Elmo.

Michael reeves improvements weren’t enough


cantfocuswontfocus

Elmo is not a war criminal. Elmo was just following orders.


Mr_Abe_Froman

Much like the Nazis who used that excuse, it'll only work if you know anything about rockets or weapons manufacturing. If that's the case, would Elmo like to work for the government that he was fighting against?


bstowers

This tickled me far more than I’m comfortable with.


therockethornet

Suddenly I want an elmo dressed up as fidel Castro

And Re as in regressing. Republicans are regressing to their pre-school behaviors.

Con is the opposite of Pro, therefore Congress was specifically made to oppose Progress - A martian's analysis of America

Well? Say they're wrong. Edit: Also, consider this: *con-dem*

> Republicans are regressing to their pre-school behaviors. Seriously. They cry like spoiled children when they don't get there way... hell, even when they do get there way. I honestly didn't think I would ever see sober adult who were supposed to be mentally stable act this childish.


AadeeMoien

Funnily enough we **can** play the same "coincidence?" game. Conservative comes from the Latin *conservare: to preserve* while "con" is short for "Confidence Game" with confidence being derived from the Latin *confidere: to have full trust*. In both cases the "Con" is from a Latin prefix derived from the word *cum: with* used as an intensifier. * In the event you meant Con as in "Convict" this still applies as convict is ultimately derived from *convincere: to out-argue or prove guilt* with the same Con- prefix.


devbat8712

Hehe cum


ShitForCereal

No matter how serious the information is hearing cum randomly makes me giggle like a child and idk if thats a good thing


disposable_account01

Pronounced “koom”. So unless you yell “I’m kooming” in bed, that should help you stay out of 8th grade mode.

Reminds me of the sketch where Jon Stewart impersonates Glenn Beck and dismantles the word "conservative libertarian". Apparently it's not on YouTube anymore, but here it is on DailyMotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2wkw3k

NaughtyFox360

I'm just glad that I'm aware of war criminal elmo now


Sask2Ont

But also, sure, remove the "dem", then it's just Panic.


Slingerang

Pandemic! At The Disco


socialistrob

> I would like to thank Josh for being an idiot so this educational response could be made This is 100% intentional. He's a Republican running for Senate in Ohio after two failed campaigns. He's facing a contested primary and he is not the most well known candidate nor does he have great fundraising. As a result his strategy is to tweet really dumb and awful things hoping that they go viral and he can get press by generating liberal outrage. This way he will beat JD Vance for the nomination and he believes Ohio is red enough that any Trump Republican can beat Tim Ryan for Senate. Josh already thanked an Ohio bartender on Twitter for coming to work sick during the pandemic because the bar was short staffed.


Thearl_

I love the one that goes `CONgress is the opposite of PROgress` that's popping up in various forms in multiple feeds for the last 5 generations


PhyllaciousArmadillo

Pro-gress means “to walk forward”. Con-gress means “to walk *together*”. If we're talking Latin roots


_significant_error

si, eg. venga conmigo


jdbuenol

Dale, voy contigo, pero a donde?


negao360

No me importa


AllG0nePeteT0ng

> CONgress is the opposite of PROgress That's stupid for the exact same reason the one in OP's pic is stupid: it appeals to dumb people who don't understand what the words actually mean and therefore don't understand that it doesn't actually imply what they think it implies.


Slingerang

And with **RE**publicans we will **RE**gress


dontshoot4301

You can’t spell Republi*CAN* without *CUM*

you mean Ben Shapiro?


thebenshapirobot

I saw that you mentioned Ben Shapiro. In case some of you don't know, Ben Shapiro is a grifter and a hack.

The quote the bot responded with makes me want to punch Ben Shapiro in the face


thebenshapirobot

*And then, there are people in the United States that are pushing for mask mandates on children. The data that they are using are extraordinarily skimpy--in fact, they are essentially nonexistent. You're hearing the CDC say things like 'maybe the delta variant does more damage to kids,' but no information they have presented publicly that there is more damange being done to kids... and the reason we are being told that they damage kids is because they can't scare the adults enough. If we cannot scare the adults enough, we're going to have to mask up the kids.* -Ben Shapiro ***** ^(I'm a bot. My purpose is to counteract online radicalization.

Osiri551

Well you can't spell Republican without Republic and the sith were actually the ones running the Republic, coincidence? /s


NaiveCritic

A democracy without informed educated people with socially responsible ethics isn’t a democracy. It’s a disfunctional society straying along the verge of chaos and violence. We’re in deep shit, globally.

AltruisticPumpkin0

When you cant spell penis without nis, which is "sin" in reverse. God doesn't approve of your Shwanzenstuck.


BeBa420

You cant spell republican without REP, you also cant spell REPugnant without REP. Coincidence?


dgblarge

Why do you keep electing these brain dead servants of the rich. I shudder to think people like that actually represent their "constituency".


BookishPisces

Josh Mandel is incredibly stupid. He should be embarrassed.


gitartruls01

>ENGLISH 101 >Post is about a Greek word


lt0083

This is the first time I genuinely think some of the American politicians are stupid. Like low IQ stupid.


SomeNoteToMyself

Why is a politician tweeting that lol Is he poking fun at his own party?


AllG0nePeteT0ng

Josh Mandel is a real charmer. He once got banned from Twitter for [this poll](https://ibb.co/k6RQnj0) about "illegals". He's dumber than dog shit and his "ethics" stink about that much, too.


HelloAttila

Oh great, another one of those... Let me guess, Josh Mandel is Marjorie Taylor Greene's brother or something?


Green_Bay_Fappers

Can we take people's verification badges away for being stupid?


foxmcloud23

At this point I question how anyone can have any sort of party loyalty at all.


ransomedagger

The fact that this person has authority over anything is scary.


middlecandace

Did anyone else feel like this was a line from ***My Big Fat Greek Wedding***……


flipfloppery

You can't spell Republican without pub, which would account for a lot of the decisions they make.


gamerdada

Don't know who this Mandel guy is, but I'm assuming he's someone with a Right-wing following. He's almost certainly not a big enough idiot to actually believe this low-hanging tripe, but he knows his followers are. They eat shit up and thank him for it, I'm sure.


MWinbne

War criminal Elmo could have added “…..you [email protected] muppet”. I think it would have really added to the final sentence.


RedArrow69

You better listen to him, he is a war criminal after all


BeyondXpression

You can't spell "CONservative" without "CON"! Is this a coincidence?! I think not! You can do that with almost any word you limp dick fuck stick.


Drahcoh

I mean, I agree but "limp dick fuck stick" is my new favorite phrase so thank you.


Warm_Enthusiasm2007

Say, that Elmo's on fire.


evanhinton

rep appears in republican AND repulsive Coincidence??

But it sounded so clever when one of my ideology friends said it…


ThePurpleSoul70

Pandemic without Dem is just Panic.


ExIsTeNtIaL_ShIt

Don't give them ideas


newandimproved10

So we’re just gonna take the words of a war criminal at face value?


dan_santhems

It is Elmo even if he is a war criminal


mobilefreak_lee

The replies to that though. Endemic, epidemic, epizootic, zoosis.


PrinceZonion

Man if I saw the tweet I’d just see it as a massive troll I’d never respond to it 🗿


jns_reddit_already

And you can't spell "shande" without Josh Mandel, but sadly he has none.


Suspicious_Gas151

...... Wouldn't the answer be "yes"?


lumidaub

The question was "Coincidence?", which it is not, technically, so "No."


DeNivla

Can’t spell coronavirus without US


full_bodied_muppet

Can't spell it without "ande" either, Mandel.


davelm42

That guy really is a moron.

Someone should tell josh mandel that you can't spell stupid without "u" 🤷🏼‍♀️
