Well it’s finally upon us. The national gathering of Rich Old White Men. After feeding the hate machine for so long by convincing working class white people that Black/Muslim/Mexican/Gay/etc people are the real reason they aren’t millionaires, the Republican Party has managed to unleash a monster that can’t put back in the cage.

That’s right, this week is the Republican National Convention where the Greedy Old Party will be officially nominating a tiny fingered, Cheeto-faced, ferret wearing, shitgibbon as their presidential candidate. Jesus Christ…I can’t believe people are really gonna vote for Donald Trump.

Anyways, here are some of the excellent and informative workshops you can take if you attend the Republican National Convention:


* Explaining All Lives Matter to Your Black Friend
