The dogshit that is National Geographic

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 2:09 pm by George Smith

It’s hard to differentiate the many Rocky Mountain ranges of dogshit in American society. What parts of it, or which shows, are the worst? Somehow, this year, National Geographic has distinguished itself in this matter. First, there was the cable tv “hit,” the pandering Doomsday Preppers, monetizing the pemmican-stockpiling armed-to-the-teeth white trash right wing kooks […]
