American Government Thread 2: RIP John McCain, 81


#2940

Oh and I want to add Fox fucking straight lied about that encounter(video proof)…I chose to leave that out as it was more about how Fox talks about Nazis and people who oppose Nazis…


#2941

The only thing worse than the Nazis, is the international banking cartel that precipitated and enabled their rise.


#2942

That dude swinging a bike lock turned out to be a tenured professor, hardly a 20 something…

a lot of cis white males in these mugshots…


You couldn’t be more wrong about Antifa


#2943

I gotta find the entire speech for context, but honestly. . . . . what in the entire shit is this man saying?


#2944

It’s really hilarious that CNNs token black guy calls it a minstrel show.


#2945

I’ll just leave this here…


#2946

So NBC fucked up totally. But truth be told the real story is Trump’s reaction. The real takeaway here is how orange man bashes the media and that’s bad for democracy.


#2947

See he is trying to say who is more violent… Not what each side stands for… This is part of the setup. Its not about what the values are its about who “was” more violent. In the end Heather Heyer would probably tell you who is more violent.

ALSO the big issue is how far the White Supremacists go to make it feel the kids in masks are not only even but worse… They make ENDLESS fake Twitter/FB accounts faking to being ANTIFA…

They also do stuff like this…

In the end I repeat one side knows what they are doing. But what do I know… I am just a left wing liberal ANTIFA sympathizer I guess.

You guys love Youtube so watch this, this was one of the best made Nazi videos showing kinda how they have lived on and the last words REALLY stick out and was made way before Trump was a thing I might add…
“but what if this new era of Nazi soldiers were united under a charismatic leader like Hitler”


#2948



We know Trump supporters these tests are fake… blah blah blah…

Think Trump should release his Tax Returns already…


#2949

Has anyone else got their Soros bucks yet? I’m still waiting for the cheque.


#2950

Politics aside, those ancestry tests are hella sketchy.

Also, 10 generations back you had 1024 grandparents. Bragging about being 1/1024th anything isn’t a great look.


#2951

Agreed. Those things are markers for the regions where those traits are present day. Couple that with the potential privacy issues and its just a bad look.


#2952

Oh look she read my mind…

Looks like 1/1024th Indian putting 100/100th corrupt Trump on notice…


#2953

Why?

Even at a 1024th, Trump’s peeps would still colloquially refer to you as a hard “R”, minus the “Libtard censorship” in this post.


#2954

Well, it’s not unlike that guy who’s trying to claim affirmative action benefits for being ~4% African American. Maybe less socially detrimental than that, but still. Trying to co-opt the moxie of belonging to a group without having to pay any of the struggle dues.

I tend to agree with Warren on political issues, so I’m not saying this from an adversarial mindset.


#2955

So… what is the metric, then?

If you don’t set off the Lynch-o-Meter, you’re good if not golden?

Seems like a grand way for the racists to “have their cake and eat yours too.”


#2956

Idk. But do we really want to use the behavior of racists as our guide for determining what’s reasonable? Pretty good chance most of those racists weren’t pure anything 10 generations back either, and just don’t know about it.


#2957

Dunno.

But not acknowledging acknowledging it is a problem.


#2958

Yeah, it’s complicated. And I can’t shit on her for believing what her parents told her as a kid. But still, being less than one one thousandth of a thing probably disqualifies you from counting as that thing. To anybody trying to be remotely reasonable anyway.


#2959

And this is why identity politics is stupid. Who gives a damn about her ancestry. Judge not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
