The most DC thing ever would be to close all the roads near the apartments, confiscate their handguns, and video them smoking crack.

I thought the most DC thing ever would be ruining all of your characters with grimdark storylines, realizing you've written yourself into a corner, then doing a half-baked reboot every few years.

Is it really dumb if their long term status isn't affected and Trump's agenda gets them what they want short term? I know more than a few people in that boat. Most loathe trump but some do not and a scant few actually love him.

People are about as convinced (an enamored) as they are with your political rantings on Facebook.

And I don't care who your banner is for, or who you're for on social media.  Give it a break.  It's spring.  Go outside, enjoy life for a bit.

I didn't say anyone was Hitler.  I said Mein Kampf was a right-wing viewpoint, which it is.  Sorry if it bothers you to hear it.  Do you need a safe space?  Or some hot cocoa?

You didn't have to.

You showed a goddamn picture of his book with him on the cover when we were discussing far-right issues.

That being said it is fair enough that he would inevitably be brought up considering historic leanings, but no doubt about it, you posted Hitler.

On purpose.

Unironically.

I find this sad and amusing.

rjakobi: Z-clipped: I didn't say anyone was Hitler.

I like how you chopped the relevant bit off my post so you didn't have to address it.  That's some mighty fine rhetoric there, Lou.

Sorry, but words mean things.  They don't mean whatever you feel like inferring in order to make a knee-jerk dismissal of a valid argument, (which, by the way, is even more dishonest than the hyperbolic comparison to Hitler you're pretending I made).

rjakobi: You showed a goddamn picture of his book with him on the cover when we were discussing far-right issues.


If I was comparing something to Hitler, I would have posted a picture of Hitler.  Hitler is not his book, and it's not my fault he's on the cover.  Or that an expert on the matter made some measured and valid comparisons between the concepts in Mein Kampf and Trump's political strategy.  You don't have to like it, but unless you address the point I've actually made instead of "stuff you pulled from your butt" I don't really have anything more to say.

You know what's funny?  I just went back to see exactly what far-right issues "we" were discussing and discovered that the only one in the thread making a comparison between Trump and Hitler was:

rjakobi: TRUMP, HITLER


Ta-DA!  Yes, I know you were kidding, and some of your other less cliched banners were pretty funny, but maybe you shouldn't be so quick to scream "OMG Godwin's Law!" without applying a little critical thinking first, eh?
