orangehat: For the record, I don't have anyone on ignore.  But I've got a lot of favorites in red.


This is a good strategy I think. I used to use ignore a lot but it got kinda ridiculous. Now there's only one thing a person can do to earn the ignore button and that's use offensive imagery.  There are exactly two people now on my ignore list.  Suspected idiots get piss yellow and confirmed idiots graduate to grey one.

puffy999: Harry_Seldon: "You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people -- now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks -- they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America."

It is funny, how she ran away from that correct and accurate quote. Because it offended the people she was talking about.


But she was entirely and non-politically-correctly correct.  The deplorables exist.  They had a march with a crowded NASCAR sideshow on Saturday.  But something about emails, benghazi, and emails about benghazi.

There's only one problem with your theory: his advisors ARE white supremacists.

Scum, all of them. This problem will not go away until the scum is flushed out of the White House.

Asking Trump to condemn the attacks would have been like Hitler being asked to say sorry for all those special camps he had set up and built back 1939.

StaleCoffee: This is their farking fault, every one, from McCain to Hatch. They sat down and used this shiat to maintain their power base. They allowed this shiat to fester so they could be elected, they used this shiat to keep people in a certain mindset so they could keep their jobs.

fark every last one of these traitorous pieces of filth. They get no credit. Talk is cheap. You've done nothing but undermine and destroy this country, republicans. Every last one of you. You're disgusting, and this is your handiwork. Revel in it or shut the fark up and DO something. Cowards.


all true but if the sinners are starting to repent. Let's not deny them a seat in the pews.  Hatch's statement was a needed reminder , and McCain's was...eloquent and unequivocal.  Lines are being drawn and they are picking our side.   Let's not chase them off because of prior bad behavior.  We embraced the Soviets to defeat the Nazis let's not forget

Bowen: His words did not go unnoticed - prompting top GOP senators, like Sens. Chuck Grassley (IA), Orrin Hatch (UT), John McCain (AZ), Rob Portman (OH), Cory Gardner (CO) and Marco Rubio (FL), to call out the president for sidestepping the force of evil at play.

serpent_sky: PunGent: drxym: The GOP needs to stop "calling out" Trump and start removing Trump. He is a cancer on their party and the sooner they stop thinking they can deal with him the better they'll be in the long run. If they don't ditch soon they'll be annihilated in the midterms.

I'd like to think so, but that's not how I'd bet right now.  Dems will be lucky to pick up a couple seats, imho.

/would like to be wrong

And most of that is due to the way everything is so gerrymandered.  People are sick of this shiat. But when your district looks like a ten-armed octopus wearing a hat, with a monocle (the middle of a more liberal city that is part of a district that looks like a cat jumping through the air) not much you can do.


Filing law suits seems to has had some positive outcomes.
Barring that, donating money or time to organizations that file those suits is very helpful.

I am stupidly proud of having helped a tiny bit with the local League of Women Voters - they forced gerrymandering to the front and won a key victory in 2016 (and I got my first greenlit about it).

There is no quick fix but it's more important  to try than not.

You didn't mention the death penalty in your original post.

It depends on the crime - most people regardless of politics don't support it for every case of murder, and racial motivation isn't really relevant.

Going back and re-reading this conversation thread I think... I THINK... that he's saying that there's a lot of racists who don't approve of violence.  Ie. let's keep the races separated, 'I won't have my daughter dating no colored man' types, but who nonetheless abhor violence against other peoples.  'Live and let live, just do it somewhere away from me,' kind of thinking.

Which could well be far worse in the long run, because it's that sort of thinking that provides the fertile ground for the more overt and deadly forms of racism, like we saw this weekend.  This revival of Neo-Naziism in America didn't come from nowhere.  It's been hidden for a long time in this soft bigotry.

I'm not one to defend the republicans mind you but....well, there really isn't much they CAN do to stop trump right now.  once Mueller's report hits tho, I suspect the GOP will have little problem with impeaching their own president.


The republicans have had three decades to stop Trump.

This didn't start with Trump. This has been a key component of the republican party since, at least, the 70s. They've been happy to play pied piper to the KKK and neonazis for decades in order to get cheap votes, now they want to act surprised the house is overrun with vermin.

The republicans don't need to tweet about the problem, they need to burn their house down and spend a few decades rebuilding a new one.

Republicans don't have a problem with racists and right wing terrorists in their ranks.  They ARE racists and right wing terrorists. They made this happen on purpose for cheap votes, now they've lost control of it.

If that's what he's saying, it's true.
There are lots of different levels of racism. Most racists won't actively go out and harm someone or even break any laws. Most racists condemn law-breakers, especially violent ones.
Many (most?) racists don't even think they are racists, of course.
And of course everyone is racist at some point (Avenue Q).

I had my own business for awhile. Doing computer repairs & network installs & such. Some days you make $1000/hr  some days you make $0.10/hr... thats just kinda how it goes.

Yeah, I started typing this up to one of the many defenders of moderate republicans in the newsflash thread, then I realized they won't get it.

As long as these people are willing to vote for them they won't actually do a damn thing about it except use "strong words."  What did they expect from a president that wouldn't even condemn the support of David Duke because he "didn't know him personally?"

So I use a perfect quote by Edmund Burke to explain why anyone who allows these people's votes to align with theirs but write it off because they're "moderate."

Let me fix that for you:

[img.fark.net image 850x562]

Do they tape all that extra skin back before scheduled appearances or something? How does he do it?

Donald Trump only ever sits facing towards the cameras and hunched over.  Even in cases where he'd be seen from the side, he goes out of his way to be seen more from the front and oblique at worst.  He hunches over forwards to hide the gut and he wears super tight collars to reign in the turkey neck.  He's Taft level obese, but hides it pretty well with superbly tailored, greatly misshapen suits.  He's raised fat concealment to an art form.

Forget opulence, he's the face of efficient corpulence.

 I've gained 50 pounds since I was in high school playing sports, luckily I'm able to hide it.  I'm not sure how Donnie does it, but like the saying goes, don't do what Donnie don't does.

I've gained about 45lbs since I stopped growing taller at age 12. Most of that was me filling out a nearly 6ft tall and fairly stocky frame. 210lbs is about what I'm supposed to weigh because I'm part of the Amazon brigade.

I've seen women about my size just look fat because because their bone structure is more typically feminine and they should weigh about what Taylor Swift does.

Some people carry their weight very well. Someone else with the same height could  just look aweful.

Taft looked good for someone as obese as he was. Trump looks like a caricature of a human being.

Hopefully, there's lots more video out there showing what happened.  Be warned, however, that it may, in fact, aid the driver's defense.  If it turns out that the road behind the vehicle was filled with counter-protesters, too, and he was revving his engine to try to get a hostile crowd to clear a path so he could safely leave the area, he's got a decent case that his actions were legally justified self-defense against a criminal mob.

We'll have to see what the facts are.

Hopefully, there's lots more video out there showing what happened.  Be warned, however, that it may, in fact, aid the driver's defense.  If it turns out that the road behind the vehicle was filled with counter-protesters, too, and he was revving his engine to try to get a hostile crowd to clear a path so he could safely leave the area, he's got a decent case that his actions were legally justified self-defense against a criminal mob.

We'll have to see what the facts are.

If you're trying to make a "both sides are bad" argument, and one of the sides is Nazis, you need to go fark yourself with a spiked cudgel.

NEDM: No mention of Cruz so far.
His initial statement, when the rally was just a disgusting display of filth:

And after the terrorist attack:

I think it's strange that Ted Cruz of all the Republicans was the first one to call on the Justice Department to go after the little terrorist fark.  I really wish he'd decide whether he wants to act like the Tea Party Stooge that he got initially elected as, or the intelligent man who was the editor of the Harvard Law Review.


Say what you like about Ted, and golly, there's a LOT to say...
He's a lot of things, but he isn't Dumb. He's late to this party, and while i might hate most of what he stands for, and fights for... i'd stand shoulder to shoulder with him on this one, and sent him a note thanking him for being quick to take that position.

That is the action of somebody who has the Imagination and Self-Awareness to see a few years into the future and that THIS is the face of the GOP unless folks like him immediately stand up, denounce it, and wrest it back.

I hope anybody in the GOP who doesn't ALREADY have the constitution printed on toilet paper so they can wipe their ass with it every morning looked at their news today and realized the same thing.
Things they oughta consider in church this morning:

This happened on YOUR watch.
The nazis snuck in through YOUR door.
You were only warned about this by EVERYBODY.
This DEPLORABLE act got such a tepid non-denouncement from YOUR President that the Nazi newsletter called the POTUS statement a tacit approval of their actions, and celebrated.
Wring your hands and say this is bad all you want, but until Nazi shartloads go back to hiding in their basement again, YOU AND YOUR PARTY OWN THIS.

Now go do something about it.

GOP outrage at Trump carries about as much weight as a strongly worded letter from the UN.

/wake me when they finally grow the balls to impeach that farker
