Secret Master of All Flatulence: Warthog: You're asking the wrong question.  The question you should be asking is why does the President of the United States refuse to utter the words "Radical Christian Terrorism," and denounce white nationalism in all its forms?  It is a toxic belief system, antithetical to civil society.  Surely you must agree it needs to be eradicated, and that by failing to condemn it the President is silently endorsing it?

How long did it take Obama to change his position that the Fort Hood massacre wasn't "workplace violence" but was Islamic terrorism?


Ah good, the "two wrongs theory" of internet debate. I believe Radical Christian Terrorism is as evil as Radical Islamic Terrorism, and that Obama should have said so.  Particularly on Ft. Hood.  Now, with that cast aside, do you care to answer my question?  I'll repeat it.  It's a simple yes or no.

Surely you must agree Radical Christian Terrorism [or violent White Nationalism -- pick one] needs to be eradicated, and that by failing to condemn it the President is silently endorsing it?

Also, if you want to be a white nationalist and think Hitler wasn't all bad because he rebuilt Germany's post WW-I economy, restored pride to his people, and got the trains running on time, own it.   Do not hide who or what you are.  Pride in power is undermined by a person's cowardice.  You have your guy in the White House, so please come out from your basements and trailers and be counted.

Hey now.  The voices in his head are real to him.

At least McMaster called it terrorism!  Let's see if that ends his job or the justice department actually acts on it.

Dear Jerk: I see it as a hate crime, not terrorism. Terrorists seek to destabilize and undermine the government. This shiatbag in the Dodge is like a Trump intern.


The definition of terrorism disagrees with you.

Using violence to scare people... Check

Using violence to scare people for political gain..... Check

Electrify: While Trump's words should have been stronger, I don't see how anyone can take that they condoned what these fascists were up to over the last couple of days.


It's a variation on condoning by standing by and doing nothing.  He's the frakakta POTUS.  It's his job to be explicitly condemning these fascists - not hiding behind a tepid tweet.
 
2017-08-13 11:58:44 AM  
Fark them. Guys like Hatch and McCain have been courting these bigoted jackholes with winks and nudges for 50 years.  Now they're acting like a married man whose mistress has just shown up at a fancy dinner party. It's not the underlying the ideas they find objectionable; it's the failure to conceal them with the proper branding.

Yeah how DARE Trump only condemn hate on ALL sides and not just single out one group...cause we all know LEFTISTS just LOVE to call out Muslims when it comes to terrorism...oh yeah, sorry. Logic. Didnt meant to use that since it could expose the current racism against white people by the left.

What the hell is a "leftist" and who (other than the actual terrorists) doesn't have a problem with Muslim terrorists?  This really shouldn't be something that has "sides" - sane and rational people are against terrorism in all forms.

I don't understand how anyone with half a brain is surprised about any of this, Trump's dumbassed response(or lack thereof) or the regular GOP's criticism.  Trump's position on white supremacists is only that they are more votes for him and this was painfully obvious long before he got the party's nomination.  The rest are just trying to make sure they don't go down with his ship of fools when the next election cycle comes around.

Go right ahead, I wouldn't say it's any great turn of phrasing, you don't have to credit me.  It's just the frustration of seeing the continuing success of forging a base made nearly completely of tribalistic morons that the Republicans have been doing since Teddy started the Bull Moose.

The one that really surprised me was Bob Dole.  Ruined his arm fighting fascists in WWII , but when they take over his own political party: crickets.

Then again, he did weep like a baby during Nixon's funeral, so maybe I was expecting too much from him.

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.

And your solution is?..................Yea, I thought so.

 Your side's solution appears to be running over people with cars to show how awesome you are.

Sorry Drew, I don't mean to crash your server with the ignore list but....congratulations asshole, you're #500


Yeah that's a typical right wing solution. Ignore the issue and point fingers at whoever is handy. How was your nazi rally?

Secret Master of All Flatulence: parasol: Maybe it'll tide you over while we wait to see what this 20-year-old has to say for himself by way of excuse for running a woman down, from behind, with his car.
Maybe you'll have the satisfaction of hearing him say he did it because he could tell from the length of her hair, or the heels of her shoes, she deserved to die because liberals made him do it.

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.


I'm wondering how it is this post is still part of the thread.

I'd also like to know why, after years of participating without any issues, the past week has seen nearly half of my posts in various threads vanish.  Apparently I've angered someone, somewhere.
 
2017-08-13 01:31:13 PM  

pheed: 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.

GREY ONE: IT'S LIKE SHADES FOR STUPID!


I like gray 1. It's really the hardest color to read of all the favorites color. But I still use the ignore button for certain people - for example, a person who HATES a certain football team and will have absolutely no material once his favorite target retires from said team, which won't be long now. He tends to use said material even when other teams are playing as well, hence his ignoring.

But really, most of the people I've ignored over the years? I see almost none of them after that first ignore. They threadshiat and run like the little pussies they are. Or they get so angry at being called out before their hooks can catch anyone they ragequit.

Lance Robdon: Flake did respond in a tweet or something so I don't fault him for that. However, I still don't like him and hope my congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema will someday take his or Mccain's place.


This isn't going to happen soon. Sinema's House seat is (relatively) safe since the district includes so much of Tempe (university town) and other urban areas. I think that any statewide election in AZ in the next ten years is going to go to someone who's not a Democrat, because there are so many Mormons and retirees here. I Could Be Wrong, but demographics and history make me think I'm right. YMMV.

But he was also against the Voting Rights Act, which was, you know, just fine with racists. Racist in intent vs. racist in effect isn't a hair I think we ought to be willing to split.

It's the classic racist stance. If you feel that gay/black/non-Christian believe don't deserve to be raped to death, dragged behind a car, or lynched then you tacitly approve of everything they do. MRAs constantly accuse feminists of believing that all women are perfect everywhere and that everything they do, including cheating and drinking/doing drugs, should be celebrated and applauded. Same thing with black people/Muslims. If someone believes that you shouldn't gun down black people indiscriminately or threaten Muslims on the street unprovoked then obviously you love and encourage gang warfare and Muslim terrorists.

You sir are an idiot.

White, leftist, and also signed up to fight terrorism.  Did so in Afghanistan and Iraq as a 19k.

You got a problem with that?  I have problem with terrorists, be it white nationalists or Muslim terrorists.

What we also have a problem with is all Muslim's being called terrorists just because of their religion.  Just like if someone were to claim all white people are racist white nationalists.

the GOP is starting to really 'get it' tho, they're finally starting to understand the kind of person they put into the white house and I don't think they like it very much.


What nonsense. Antifa were brought in on one side, white racists straight out of central casting on the other. Ordinary conservatives caught in the middle. This was orchestrated. Wake up. George Soros must have cut a lot of checks last week.
