The latest right-wing outrage concerns a tweet by Kamala Harris telling Americans to enjoy the long weekend. Of course, this is all performative outrage, as conservative news outlets aren't exactly commemorating the solemnity of Memorial Day:

Also, none of the idiots lambasting VP Harris made a big deal about Vulgarmort actually wishing people a happy Memorial Day, leading me to believe that they operate on a double standard.
I don't begrudge people having a good time on Memorial Day weekend, paid days off are a rare occurrence for American workers. If the authorities wanted people to spend the day in solemn reflection, they should move it to January or February, when the westher is more conducive for somber occasions. The day has pretty much lost its significance for anyone who hasn't lost a loved one to war- it's now a day for the opening of the beach season, and for sales at home goods stores.
The attacks on Vice President Harris are cynical, and unconvincing... yet they aren't nearly as stupid as the current criticism of President Biden.
