All The Pearl-Clutching Outrage Over The Kathy Griffin Headless Trump Photo

Always was Team Kathy. Trump turned out to be so much worse than we ever could have imagined. Too bad his head wasn't the real thing.
|by Anonymous||reply 2||05/20/2020|
The sad truth is that nothing sticks to Trump, the GOP, the Deplorables, the alt-right, Putin, etc. for long. Their faux outrage, their claims of fake news, the hypocrisy, the bullying, their attempts to cover their bases for any potential outcome (when they win if was fair, when they lose the other side cheated), etc.
You can't argue or fight in a civil manner with someone who has no morals and not even a shred of integrity. They break every rule there is, but scream like wounded banshees when they are told to face the consequences of their actions.

It wasn't well executed. It should've been just his bloody head on a plate and the quote "and blood came out of her ... whatever!" underneath it, like in a meme. Kathy wasn't really necessary for the Anti Trump message.

People were trying really hard to destroy her, even here on DL. We had someone who would start thread after thread and talk about it as though it was a real head, then when confronted would say it was just like holding up a real animal head, then say "okay well it was a realistic dummy head," etc. Lots of claims that it was a "legitimate threat" and that Griffin was "very likely to try to kill the president."
It was so weird to see the exact same comments on news articles and on Twitter, too. Someone was behind making those very specific talking points, and they were all ridiculous, but people got so caught up in the mob mentality that it turned into almost mass hysteria.

It was in bad taste, sure.
But so was Joan Rivers's whole bit about how Palestinian children SHOULD be dead, all Palestinians deserve to be dead.
Don't give me the "post proof of that' shit because you can just go look it up on Google, it's on websites that have links that DL no longer accepts for whatever stupid reason. But you know it happened, it was in the news for quite a while. She was actively wishing death on children because of their nationality and strangely no one flipped out about THAT in the same way they flipped out about KG.

What she should’ve done instead of apologizing, was use the same pic but with her holding her own head, with a caption, ‘oops, my bad’ or something like that.
I think that it would’ve confused and appeased the rabid right a bit.

The general public wasn't aware yet how much social media was being manipulated by Russian Troll Farms and the alt right incels / Deplorables.
And to this day people underestimate the power of "first impression" where the right wing bombards the mainstream with their narrative full of lies and when they have to take back some stuff (because they lied without shame and regret) the damage is already done, because people have digested all these lies and they remain in the back of their heads and get pulled forward whenever the topic is brought up again. Only when you dismiss the initial claim right away it can't establish itself in the back of your mind.

Kathy’s tearful press conference fucking ruined her. Joan would have never done that. I understand she was being bombarded with death threats etc. but going on TV and sobbing, “He broke me?” All that does is encourage the harassment to continue.
The way it took over the news was fucking ridiculous. There must have been absolutely nothing important going on that week.

She did the photo in order to be provocative but had no idea how explpsive it'd be. When it blew up she clamed it was actually a feminist commentary on the Megyn Kelly blood comments, nobody bought it. She was an idiot. The backfiring reminds me of the Janet Jackson superbowl nipple.
They just misread how rhe country would react.
If it had been Obama's head she was holding she would have been driven underground forever and wod never be able to show her face.

She says she only did the apology video because someone asked her what if Daniel Pearl's mother saw the picture. The apology, while badly done was only for her.
She retracted her embarrassment over the picture and the apology when people would tell her they were outraged over her picture and yet at the same time they'd talk about beheading/dismemberment videos they'd watch on YouTube or LiveLeak.

He SHOULD put that fucking mask on, dripping with ketchup or whatever the fuck they use.
He cost us 36,000 American lives in ONE week's bullshit and delays. He dicked around thinking he could dodge the virus without dealing with it for two months. Maybe more. He's still doing it now, doing as little as possible and not doing what actually needs to be done.
He should be covered in blood every day, like Carrie at the prom only fat and without any telekinetic powers.

r58 - you do realize the photo was the photographer's idea. Kathy agreed to do the photo, but the photographer released it without notifying her. Kathy didn't think anything of it since it was so obviously a cheap mask. Kathy was raked over the coals, lost all of her jobs and most of her friends. The photographer, whos idea it was, who took the picture and who owns the copyright - had nothing happen to him, No loss of work, not threatening from the Trump family.

The photographer Tyler Shields shows up in various Scientology blogs from people who got out of the cult. This one is particularly interesting, a former cult member in 2014 talking about how Shields was "discovered" by Fraser Kee Scott.
