    Funny.. I am pretty sure that the last one on that list is actually the Trump agenda, since no “leftist” I know of is going around trying to sell off national park lands… So, lets see. The right wing agenda – 1. contaminate everything with religion and hyper-capitalism, 2. contaminate everyone with booze and sugar, 3. get everyone you don’t like to either a) shoot each other, or b) be killed by scared and paranoid people who are “just defending themselves”, by drowning the country in guns, 4. replace America with a fascist state (theocracy helpful too, but we can just do that later), and finally, 5. Pave over everything, because we need more shopping malls and urban sprawl than we do things like trees.

    Yeah.. Sounds way more plausible than the cartoon is. :p

    I’d love to have an artisanal abortion, so I can fully support this plan, but unfortunately I don’t have a uterus, at least not that I’m aware of. Suggestions, anybody?

    Just in case it isn’t obvious (and I admit it wasn’t to me), “artisanal abortion” is a (so-far infrequently-used?) synonym for “DIY abortion”. Which is one of the things which happens when you make abortions difficult or illegal; people (try to) do it themselves. That is not at all safe.

    Would “harvesting the organs of white christian patriots” be point six or seven?

    Worth noting, re Step 5, that Joni Mitchell is Canadian. She’d probably give us free healthcare too, the Apocalyptic Harpie!

    rietpluim #3: Those who cannot have artisanal abortions shall provide artisanal abortions.

    I don’t think that’s what it means here; it wouldn’t make much sense in context. I think it’s trying to be an absurdist take on the right’s disdain for fancy or “artisanal” things (especially if you’re poor and don’t deserve it) combined with their paranoia about abortion (i.e. abortions for everyone, even those who don’t deserve them).

    Now if we could only give Trump et.al. rides in big yellow taxis.
