Hell, go with it. What can B do to take the Grand Cheeto out of the white house? Send him home and let him run apartments or something.

They all seem to view Donnie Two Scoops like an ancient Japanese emperor.  Whichever warlord can grab him becomes Shogun and reigns and control what he does.

Since they all know him well, it is fascinating they think this of him.

Has anyone noticed that the original Breitbart is dead? His major accomplishment was parsing the comments of some African-American staff lady in the Obama administration to somehow prove she was "racist" and somehow got her fired or resigned.

So they fell for an @usa.com email account over a .gov?  Am I wrong here?  Is that not like the first clue?

In more shocking news, Breitbart has a staffer named 'Raheem.'

fusillade762: davidphogan: The kind of people who read that site will say it's fake news. They want to believe.

That will be hard since they already acknowledged it happened. From another article

After the Breitbart editors realized they had been hoodwinked, Breitbart president and CEO Larry Solov wrote a cautionary note to staffers.

"For the moment, be especially careful of emails from this address," Solov wrote in the company's internal Slack channel, a copy of which was obtained by CNN.

So how do they plan to oust Kushner, let alone Trump's daughter? I suppose there's potentially ways to limit Kushner but are they going to be able to effectively sever Trump from his daughter in any legal manner?

I read that as Breitbart caught in a pine box, six feet under.

Then I smiled.

I found it!  It's from "The Men who Stare at Goats" and goes as follows:
Well, sir... It looks like they found out about our attempt to telepathically communicate with one of our nuclear subs. The Nautilus, while it was under the Polar cap.

What attempt?

There was no attempt. It seems the story was a French hoax. But the Russians think the story about the story being a French hoax is just a story, sir.

So, they've started psi research because they thought we were doing psi research, when in fact we weren't doing psi research?

They literally cannot help themselves. A friend at work had a coworker come by his house for a while, and before he left he had to run his mouth about that horsecrap Jewish conspiracy stuff.

My dad sent me a link to some "essay" on how, basically, the right cannot possibly be extremists because they are god fearing Americans who believe in liberty and personal freedom. Aaaaand then in the second to last sentence, the guy calls out the left as conducting a blood-libel on the right. I farking lost my shiat.

Most times people go "I'm not racist, but..." before they say something utterly racist. Not this, this was full on pro alt-right and then went full nazi.

Also that movie is hilarious.  If you haven't seen it already I highly recommend it.  You pretty much have to be drunk though.

That's actually a bit creepy.  I consider myself to be moderately left, and I'm not plotting a "blood-libel", whatever that is, against anybody.  I just think that people need to calm the fark down and realize that we're all basically interested in the same things.  We'd like to wake up in the morning in a place we can afford, go to work, do work and get paid, and come home again, all without being threatened by armed thugs.

Is that so much to ask?

Politics is becoming like sports arguments in a bar. I respect that you are Phillies fan, I support your right to be a Phillies fan, but the Marlins just beat your team and the Phillies have the worst record in baseball.
How badly does President Trump have to lose for his fans to admit he is wrong for the job?
Apparently pretty badly. And unfortunately there is Pence. He doesn't even have a fastball.

This is exactly the problem. We don't have an army of the dead marching on us, but the living still are supposed to be on the same team. Instead, we've drawn a bunch of arbitrary lines and defend them to the death, and once those lines are defended we make up even more imaginary lines and start hating each other over those.

"Blood libel" is the term for the traditional myths about Jews drinking the blood of Christian babies for Passover. The sort of thing a Nazi would promote/believe.

Metaphorically, a "blood libel" is any really extreme libel or slander. In this case, the point is that libs are so terrible, they're the real Nazis, according to a Nazi.

Is there anybody out there that genuinely believes that "Globalists" does not mean "The Jews"? I mean, when you read through the Alt-Right newspeak, even Marlow's sad response reads as mind-numbingly racist.

It's almost like that, except one team is actual nazis that believe in white supremacy. The problem is, the sheer number of people I think have started to defend that shiat, not even because they deep down believe that, but because of solidarity with others on their 'team' and wanting to beat the other 'team' so badly. In this case they are basically willing to destroy society as we know it for the sake of winning. They don't seem to care that in that scenario they'd be ruling over the ash pile.
