Disney’s ‘Cruella’

Y’know, some villains don’t qualify for redemption.

I’m sorry, are we trying to humanize Cruella de Vil? Give her a Maleficent-style “redemptive arc”? Because as I remember the story, she was a dog-murdering monster who was gleefully and determinedly trying to steal and skin puppies to make a coat. I don’t feel like there’s a lot of “redemption” available for a character like that.

We don’t need a party of fascists.

C’mon, Joe. You know better than this.

Yeah, we really don’t. Not this Republican Party, anyway. It’s riddled with fascists and cultists. Maybe if they clean their house, they can come back to play with the rest of reasonable society, but until then? Nah.
