MAGA Moron Maritime Mishaps

 Because no one died, or was seriously injured, the sinking of several boats in a Lake Travis, Texas 'boat parade' for Trump is Pure Comedy Gold.  This particular disaster weren't a perfect enough metaphor... larger boats being operated in an unsafe manner causing wakes which swamp smaller boats, that's Republicanism in a nutshell.  Who needs regulations, just make sure you're the guy who swamps the other loser!  The stupider MAGA pundits, eschewing Occam's Razor as always, denied the evidence of their own eyes to see evidence of a sinister leftist plot:

 

 

Now, THAT is the sort of paranoia which warms the cockles of my heart! This incident is not the first of its kind, a couple of weeks ago, irresponsible Trump boaters swamped the boat of a family on Oregon's Willamette River.  Oddly enough, it was also foreshadowed by Fox dumbass Pete Hegseth comparing a Trump boat parade to the Spanish Armada, which tells you how much the typical right-wing talking head knows about history.

Besides today's Lake Travis swamping, there was a boat fire at a Lake Havasu, Arizona Trump boat parade (the linked thread has a hilarious Trump cultist claiming that boat fires are common.  There was also a report of boat sinkings in Oklahoma.  My favorite comment describing the event, which I have been attempting to track down for linkage and attribution, described these inept boaters as graduates of the Trump Naval Academy.

As for Trump himself, he doesn't seem to have kept up with the news, leading to this own goal:

Sigh, I also wish he could join them. At any rate, I sure hope this is a foreshadowing of November, with a Blue Wave washing all of the MAGAts out of political power... All it would take is a few more rats fleeing a sinking shit.

The odds of Republicans NOT blaming any kind of mishap or disaster on terrorism is also microscopic.

What a load of "morans", as they would say

My favorite thing about these morans is their insistence that the sinkings were due to terrorism or sabotage, rather than the obvious cause of bad boat handling and probable boating while intoxicated.

Swamped boaters pulled from the water by Travis Lake Fire / Rescue....

God fucking forbid a trumpoon would stop to pick up a boater in distress! God fucking forbid these morons would operate their boats in a safe manner!!!

Who knew Antifa had submarines?

The reports from local authorities indicate that the sinkings were almost entirely from wakes created by the larger boats being handled in a irresponsible manner (too close together, moving too fast).

And yes, the richer Trumpoons didn't deign stop to pick up fellow Trumpoons in distress.

"I like Trumpoons who don't capsize!"

A better analogy of the entire GOP even Bill Shakespeare couldn't have made...

Yes, Tombie, clearly Antifa has submarines, because no surface vessels were seen ramming the victim boats, there were no explosions, and clearly, this had to have been a series of terrorist acts, because no way could Trump-supporting boat owners have been such ignorant uncaring buffoons as to cause or react to these sinkings as we see in the videos. How else do you reconcile all of those undeniable facts except by way of Antifa submarines ramming the boats underwater where no one could see them.

Okay, this logic is admittedly not airtight. It could have been Soros who was behind the submarines, and not Antifa, and reasonable people should be open to all rational explanations. There is room for empiricism in analysing these matters, it's not all dogmatic assertion.

Once again the seaworthiness of wooden boats over plastic boats is shown
Port Townsend Wooden Boat parades never have this problem though oftimes just as numorous with larger vessels such as Lady Washington, several over 80" schooners, numorous sloops, ketchs and yawls with classic runabouts.

You know who created Lake Travis? Lyndon Johnson, a DEMOCRAT! What more do you need?
