fusillade762: Anybody make it through the whole thing? What do I need to know about these assholes other than the fact that they're hateful authoritarian dickbags?


Some of them are rich hateful authoritarian dickbags. And they still have influence in the highest echelons of power.

Stephen "Goebbels" Miller has entrenched his position, for example, despite the departure of Bannon and Gorka.

The conservatives constantly harp about Soros and his funding of liberal causes, but here you have a group of multi-millionaires and billionaires pushing a racist, white nationalist agenda.

Oh, I mean, I get it - you're on the "Both Sides Are Bad Concern Trollapalooza" bus - but attempting to claim that a concerted, years-long effort, funded by some of the richer right-wing assholes this country has to offer, to embrace neo-Nazis, white nationalists, teabaggers, MRAs, and all of the conservative disaffected that they could scrape up in an effort to rebrand them as an "alt-right" movement, is somehow equal to the foolishness you've posted is a study in moronic equivocation.

Being an alt-right apologist is bad enough, but to know - to actually see evidence in front of you - that these assholes were working with neo-Nazis and white nationalists, all the while lying about it through their farking teeth to anyone & everyone who confronted or even suspected them, and to then post this weak-ass concern troll shiat? It ill becomes you.

fusillade762: I wonder how the Mercers endgame jibes with the Kochs.


The Kochs seems more focused on obtaining the 'old-school', pre-Tea Party goals of the GOP, namely reductions in or outright removal of so-called Entitlements and social programs (including the ACA), and tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, specifically the repeal of the Estate Tax. They are willing to go along with other goals, but they seem hell-bent on repeal of the ACA and the Estate Tax, with other tax cuts for the rich, as well.

These Mercers seem more interested in Bannon's kind of Republican Party, namely extreme Immigration reform, and otherwise empowering the Whites over other races. They seem to be behind much of the populism that has run rampant first with the Tea Party, and then exploding behind Trump's rise to power. Surely the Kochs had their hand in this, as well, but it appears that was only a means to an end.

The only saving grace at the moment is that Trump is a buffoon.

The Mercers and Bannon, on the other hand, are in it for the long haul with billions in cash, infrastructure, and relentless propaganda.

Trump is the opening salvo to this, not the apex. That's the reality if these nationalistic white supremacists continue to gain traction. They are dedicated, full time, to seeing their vision of not only America, but the world, come to fruition.

It won't magically stop. The efforts in opposition need to unite and work twice tirelessly against this, otherwise the slow drift to a very bleak future for many will continue.

okay everyone can return to the normal race baiting and name calling.


What was called race baiting, this article proved to be "correctly identifying racists." The wedge isn't being driven by people who can successfully spot racists, but is being driven by people who will provide excuses for racists when the racists' political positions are in line with their own.

If you don't want to be lumped in with the racists, un-align your views from the racists to distinguish yourself.

It once came up here that i think interracial dating is probably a bad idea.

Which is really all that was ment. Interracial relationships blow up more often than ones that aren't. It's a bad idea in exactly the same way that, say, dating wildly out of your income bracket or education level is. There is simply a greater chance of sorrow and pain in your future.

But apparently I'm a hardcore defender of the purity of the whit race?


I'm going to need a citation for your claim. A perfunctory Google search shows that white men marrying black women have THE LOWEST divorce rate out there. So, is your view out of "concern" or do you want to admit that you just don't like it because reasons?

I'll probably wade into the poop with this assertion, but I have a feeling that when Milo says he's disavowed racism, I believe him. It is genuinely possible that he really thought he was just being funny and edgy and provoking and making big jokes without being aware that that gives shelter to people who mean it. We must know a thousand people like him; twelve year old mindsets who get off on pissing off the grownups. He just never outgrew it.

Think about that kid you knew in Junior High with the swastikas all over his Trapper Keeper. He wasn't making a political statement; his goal was to freak out the teachers. Now imagine he's making a thousand bucks per swastika. That's our man Milo.


A guy who disavows racists and Nazis only when confronted by a journalist hasn't really disavowed racists and Nazis.

PanicMan: Also, I work with a mental health organization.
The things you joke about are people suffering trauma.  Microagressions aboslutely hurt people, especially vulnerable groups. And safe spaces save lives. Literally.


I used to laugh about safe spaces in the early days - until I actually met folk they had saved. Funnily enough, I met them after getting denied entry to a safe space. I dated a bisexual girl who went to one of the local Stonewall support groups - I accompanied her there one time and got refused entry. So I'm left outside, grumbling to myself when one of the kids (oh sweet Jebus, I'm old enough to say they were kids now) comes out for a smoke break and we start chatting. 
Turned out he'd attempted suicide twice because of the harassment he'd been getting since he came out, and it was only because of the group that he'd not attempted it a third time. Having somewhere where he absolutely knew he didn't have to worry about anyone attacking him because of who and what he was, and getting the support from people who could relate to his experience in a way I never could saved his life. 

I met the rest of the group over the weeks, and I learned their stories. And that's about the point when I stopped being resentful when they all disappeared into the building without me and understood why they needed a safe space.

That's what I hated most.   Ill admit I'm a closet milo video binge watcher.   I hate the way the college campuses especially seem to have become breeding grounds for a new kind of fascist identity politics where whoever is the most aggrieved becomes the most influential.   So . . . .I get off on watching him annihilate and trigger these pussy ass kids were raising.

But . . . that was really troubling.  I'm not going to vote republican ever, and I don't support white supremacy or Nazis or any of that shiat.   But. . . . like many people cited in that article,I am a long time leftist kind of pissed off with where we are going as a movement.

Its interesting how guys like milo and to a lesser extent Shapiro really resonate with many democrats who secretly despise snowflake liberalism but would almost never actually vote republican.  People like me who want there to be freedom and equality but don't want to be lectured about how intolerant they are because they arent super comfy with whatever the latest identity politics trend is.  Democrats who don't think cops are scum.   Democrats who own guns and like guns.   Democrats who believe in border security and don't want to be lectured on the cruelty of a wall or securing the border.

This is why the current gun debate is so important.  Pushing away moderates and chastising them because they aren't as angry as you or angry with the same things is just foolish.   Its partly why we have trump as our president.

To me that article painted milo as an attention seeking avaricious and obsequious kind of toady at the feet of real movers and shakers.   It painted bannon as thinking he's the man, but really being the same kind of obsequious toady just to a higher level of boss.  Also bannon comes off as . . . .just kind of dumb.   Cunning no doubt.   Able in some weird ways to navigate the halls and yachts of power well but ultimately just kind of simple and easily played.

Trivia Jockey: What an ugly hate machine.


That's the thing, though - it's not a "hate machine," but a "power machine." They created a transformer that turned disaffection, anger, and hate into political power, and then directed that political power as they saw fit. It's why they're so brash about their whole "legal defense" threat - Milo, Bannon, and others saw these assholes as malleable, and a bunch of these folks beat these assholes into a passable weapon of political war. They manufactured a power base that, while based on disaffection, anger, and hate, could be exploited without too much difficulty.

The fun part is realizing that, once "the endless tide of 1488 scum" read this, those racists and Nazis are going to be more than a little angry at Milo, and Bannon, and all the other assholes who laughed at them behind their backs even as they pitched and directed them to their faces.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Magorn: Yarvin, a software engineer who under the nom de plume Mencius Moldbug helped create the "neoreactionary" movement, which holds that Enlightenment democracy has failed and that a return to feudalism and authoritarian rule is in order. 

This...this is an actual thing?  Here and Now?

Yes it is. Moldbug is one of those socially retarded ass-pies who is obsessed with "functional programming" (an idiotic approach to coding that resonates with folks who can see the world only in terms of black and white), and thinks authoritarianism is a great idea. Like most people who hold moronic views like that, he's not self-aware enough to realize that, if authoritarian rule were instituted, he'd be one of the first ones against the wall. But he's sure he's one of the supermen who will be allowed to rule the rest.

For some reason the Venn diagram of "likes Nazis," "takes video games way too seriously," "enjoys functional programming," "wears fedoras and describes self as a 'nice guy'," "can't get laid," "hates women" is pretty large.


Yeah in retrospect, I ran into a LOT of that Venn Diagram hanging around Sci-Fi Cons in the early 90's but I wasn't aware enough to know what I was looking at.  They were almost all men, working in comp-sci jobs, had limited to non-existent social skills and grooming habits and most had a nasty case of the Madonna-whore complex to boot.   They'd worship the women who actually went to cons, A lot less nerd girls back int he day)....right up to the point where the object of their affection turned them down, and then they often got angry and on occasion violent about that (Back then I was 6'2 and 325 my self and  some of of that wasn't pure fat so Con security was my favorite gig) Eric Raymond was a fixture those cons who was sorta the archetype of the breed.

A smart friend of mine from those days who was a frequent object of those affections and is now a trained anthropologist tells me that toxic tribalism we see in Gamergate and elsewhere isn't new but festered in SF and Geek circle for a LONG time but was  just a bit more muted because of the lack of a platform like the internet where people like that could find validation and reinforcement

You were reveling in Milo upsetting and outing trans people earlier in the thread.  You consider your issues as "short old ball player" to be the equivalent of one the marginalized groups targeted for violence most often.

You don't actually support the same stuff as the Democratic party.  You don't support police reform.  You don't support protections for marginalized groups.  You don't support any restrictions on the 2nd Amendment.  These are all your positions.  That you've stated and owned.  In this thread.

The things you joke about are people suffering trauma.  Microagressions aboslutely hurt people, especially vulnerable groups. And safe spaces save lives. Literally.

I used to laugh about safe spaces in the early days - until I actually met folk they had saved. Funnily enough, I met them after getting denied entry to a safe space. I dated a bisexual girl who went to one of the local Stonewall support groups - I accompanied her there one time and got refused entry. So I'm left outside, grumbling to myself when one of the kids (oh sweet Jebus, I'm old enough to say they were kids now) comes out for a smoke break and we start chatting. 
Turned out he'd attempted suicide twice because of the harassment he'd been getting since he came out, and it was only because of the group that he'd not attempted it a third time. Having somewhere where he absolutely knew he didn't have to worry about anyone attacking him because of who and what he was, and getting the support from people who could relate to his experience in a way I never could saved his life. 

I met the rest of the group over the weeks, and I learned their stories. And that's about the point when I stopped being resentful when they all disappeared into the building without me and understood why they needed a safe space.

Valuable insight. Thank you.

Was just going to say it, you beat me to it. Touching, insightful, and spot the fark on. I like the cut of your jib good sir.

And I the cut of yours. Thank you.


Nice story, I had a similar experience. I had a group of friends who ran the gamut of LGBT. I used to hang out with them all the time and attended many of their parties. The primary couple at the head of the group was one of my best friends and I had spent most of my socialization with them and in their house. One weekend I found out that they had a HUGE party that was a blast, which I was not invited to. I got pretty hurt about it as I knew 90% of the attendees and 75% were considered close friends. 

A few weeks later I brought it up with a chip on my shoulder. My friend patiently explained to me that I was the only cis-gendered white hetero male in the group and that the party was focused on the identity of LGBT. While they were all my friends, it wasn't a space designed for me. It was a LGBT party and the party was meant to be a place where they could all be themselves without worry. Even though I "was cool about things" I still was outside that circle. My non-invite was not meant as insult but as a protection of their friends and their good night. I got it and apologized for my behavior due to it and ended up discussing this with multiple other attendees. 

People like to pretend that safe spaces are new or just for "millennials". While the official title is a new thing, but they concept has been around for a long time. Safe spaces are a thing which are important to everyone. Everyone seeks out safe spaces. For some these are a refuge from harassment or abuse. Others they are a place where they feel they can fully express themselves without fear of retribution or harassment.  Safe spaces are anywhere that you isolate a group to feel safe/comfortable. Good old boy clubs are safe spaces. Guys night in the cabin/icehouse is a safe space. Kink nights/shows are a safe space. Girl talk is a safe space. When I don't invite X over because they are going to piss of Y, I am creating a safe space.

Im a tiny bit of a milo fan and I'm not defending him.   I actually don't think anyone is.

I don't get how you can be a fan of him.

He is what 4chan looks like when they think they are trying to be christopher hitchens, given human form.

I like watching people squirm.   He makes people I think are ridiculous squirm.   Enemy of my enemy kind of deal.

Just because I like to watch him make pussies squirm doesnt mean I fall in lock Step with his views.   But here, and in modern society admitting I watch his videos and laugh makes me a Nazi

Terrible reason to be a fan of someone, but that's your bag, so hey. Stigginit-type attitude is what got us the most internationally despised president in history. What could go wrong?

You never had a guilty pleasure?   I like public freakout videos too, but I usually feel bad for the participants.

Im honest and stand up about it.   Ill take whatever criticism people want to hurl.   The dudes a professional troll.   I just like that he trolls people I think are ruining my party.

 please explain why trolling is at all worthy of even a guilty pleasure? Either you don't believe what you are saying and you are intentionally lying to upset people,  in which case they are a shiatbag.

Or he actually believes what he says, and is legit a shiatbag.

Either way, its complete nonsense.

Are you kidding ?   Trolling people for fun is an ancient tradition.

Watching people get trolled is the same.   Theres tv shows about it, umpteen youtubers doing it to the tune of millions of views a day.

Its not moral, its not right, you wouldnt want your mom to get trolled and get angry and act a fool.  But . . . .it can be funny and a guilty pleasure.  Like the freakout videos.  ,I feel sorry for most of the freaker outers.   Wish they would not have had an embarrassing moment caught on video.   But. . . .like many many others I will watch for a little guilty entertainment.

Call me weird then, but watching others suffer doesn't bring me joy. And in all the cases so far where youtube people or tv shows "troll" people, it ends with letting them in on the joke.

I really don't like my ex now, but she was raped when she was a teenager by her first boyfriend and we both agree that was terrible.  If someone decided to "troll" her that rape victims are at fault for getting raped, i would feel zero percent bad when she takes his knees out with a baseball bat.

Me neither.  Crush rapists and people who would troll rape victims about their rape.

These people can't be let in on the joke because to them its not a joke.   To them if I dont respect your desire to choose a new gender identity whenever you want I'm denying their right to live.   When in fact I'm saying "no, youre a dude who thinks hes different things on different days.   Youre not a woman, a dragon, a wolf, or an attack helicopter"   and that doenst make me trans phobic.   I don't care what you "identify" as.


So you are fine with people trolling, but just over topics you approve of? Gender is fine, rape isn't. Should i tell gun nuts their kids deserve it when they get killed? Or is that inappropriate? What about sexual assault victim, telling them they muat have been at least partially to blame?

And if you think it shouldn't be trolled about (like rape) but someone else does, aren't you in the same boat as us "snowflakes"?

I presume you mean the last full sentence to be your summation of what you think people who support "identity politics" believe? So in your mind, a BLM supporter would wish you dead if you don't go march with them? Um, have you met a human recently?! (Note: people may yell at you on Twitter or call you racist if you ignore a cause that primary affects the civil rights of another race and thus makes it easy for you to ignore because you apparently don't know anyone of that race. I dont' think this counts as taking away your rights?!)

In contrast, "identity politics" (read, "civil rights") has given us more police accountability for shooting of the innocent (and/or minor criminals) who happen to be black, more rights for gay and trans people, and an attempt at more diversity in politics, which generally helps reduce a close-minded culture.

You gotta hand it to Fox News; they've done an excellent job of convincing the world that "identity politics" means that a minority should get a job, no matter how unqualified they are. As usual, Fox News is deliberately wrong.

And it's too much for you and yours.   In a way I understand.   You are White males in a system that is DESIGNED from the ground up to confer upon you EVERY possible societal advantage, and still you generally fail at completing life's basic tasks: achieving financial security, having a lasting, meaningful intimate relationship, reproducing.   And so rather than take stock and realize there is something wrong with YOU and do some real work to fix it, you blame society, you play the victim even though you started life winning the genetic lottery.  And when people do thing of which you do not "agree" well that's infuriating because it drives home just how powerless you are  and how even your  privilege, which already failed you is getting thinner and less useful by the day

Man that is so not true.

One issue is the false equivalence, elevating "antifa" since Charlottesville, so we get a 'both sides are bad' issue instead of GODDAMNNAZISINAMERICANANDTHEWHITEHOUSE!

At one point, articles about antifa post-Charlottesville actually outnumbered those of the alt-right/white nationalists/Nazis who MARCHED WITH TORCHES AND CHANTED 'JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US'.  National Review called them 'twin cancers.'  CNN did an 'unmasking antifa', etc, etc.

Which is not to say there aren't legit criticisms of the far-left, but, wholly sh*t fark, people, we're talking about literal Nazis, and they worked in the f*cking White House advising the President, hiring staff, and, at one point, were on the National Security Council.

Boxingoutsider: JerseyTim: This really is a terrific piece of journalism.

On top of being a racist and overall horrible person, the fact that Bannon doesn't spell out "are" and "you" and writes things like "Dude!!! LMAO! ... Epic" in emails makes him that much more despicable.

That's what I hated most.   Ill admit I'm a closet milo video binge watcher.   I hate the way the college campuses especially seem to have become breeding grounds for a new kind of fascist identity politics where whoever is the most aggrieved becomes the most influential.   So . . . .I get off on watching him annihilate and trigger these pussy ass kids were raising.

But . . . that was really troubling.  I'm not going to vote republican ever, and I don't support white supremacy or Nazis or any of that shiat.   But. . . . like many people cited in that article,I am a long time leftist kind of pissed off with where we are going as a movement.

Its interesting how guys like milo and to a lesser extent Shapiro really resonate with many democrats who secretly despise snowflake liberalism but would almost never actually vote republican.  People like me who want there to be freedom and equality but don't want to be lectured about how intolerant they are because they arent super comfy with whatever the latest identity politics trend is.  Democrats who don't think cops are scum.   Democrats who own guns and like guns.   Democrats who believe in border security and don't want to be lectured on the cruelty of a wall or securing the border.

This is why the current gun debate is so important.  Pushing away moderates and chastising them because they aren't as angry as you or angry with the same things is just foolish.   Its partly why we have trump as our president.

To me that article painted milo as an attention seeking avaricious and obsequious kind of toady at the feet of real movers and shakers.   It painted bannon as thinking he's the man, but really being the same kind of obsequious toady just to a higher level of boss.  Also bannon comes off as . . . .just kind of dumb.   Cunning no doubt.   Able in some weird ways to navigate the halls and yachts of power well but ultimately just kind of simple and easily played.


Gonna go out on a limb and guess that you're a white middle class male. Not that's a bad thing. It's just that it's easy for you to be drawn to his ideaology because it's liw stakes for you. If the Milo and the Bannons of the world hold power, you're fine. White, middle class males will continue to be most powerful in society. If liberals hold power, you'd still be fine but maybe not the default power setting or centered in discussions. So it can feel like liberalism is going in the wrong direction because from your position, it's shifting power away from you.

And I think the college campus snowflake bullshiat it based on cherry picked campuses and push polls. Colleges are still popping out just as many Nazi sympathizing, khaki wearing Young Republicans as they are graduating hairy-pitted, tatted SJWs.

Ned Stark: I absolutely condone interracial realationships. Not once have I ever claimed that being involved in one was wrong in any way.


I'll start off by saying that this part is in no way an attack - but you don't 'absolutely' condone them, given you advise people to stay out of them because you believe they're doomed to fail. You accept them, but maintain it's a bad idea. And that's part of the point.

So let's recap (because this has been a very long thread).  As far as I understand from the posts you've made in the thread, you advise against mixed-race relationships because of a high divorce rate that means, to you, that they're doomed failure through tensions that arise because of different ethnic backgrounds. Then you're told that a suggested theory was that the divorces weren't so much backgrounds of the couple so much as the external influences that range from outright racism, to smaller scales of discrimination and social acceptance and influence and don't quite understand why anyone would think your attitude plays into this - especially the last part about social influence. 

It doesn't make you a racist (well, unless you insist the divorces can only be because of irreconcilable differences between races in the face of more likely theories put forward by the folk that actively study these things), and that's not what I'm accusing you of being. But I am saying that by telling people that interracial relationships are a thing to be avoided, you're contributing to the smaller factors that put pressure on those relationships in the first place. You help create the very situation you warn people about. You might not mean to. You might never have wanted to. But it's what you're doing.

Funny thing is, most places that cite the massive failure rate of interracial marriages usually bring up the L. Bratter and Rosalind B. King study which relied on a small sample size, and with the highest peak of interracial marriage failures happening with couples who were together in the late 80's - which were understandably not a great time to be an interracial couplein the US or UK (hell, the 90's weren't great either: we had a local group of assholes who took exception to my mother dating a black man when I was a kid which started with bricks through windows and culminated in an attempt to set the whole apartment block on fire). 

The later study by Yaunting Zhang and Jennifer Van Hook used a larger sample size and couples who had gotten together in a later time period which shows that, while racial differences and difficulties were cited as a factor in the divorce, the divorce rates themselves were more on par with the average for same-ethnicity pairings. Hell, white/asian marriages actually pulled ahead in terms of stability.

Im not sure any of that is important.  I think what is important is that we still don't have a handle on internet media, and that such a stupid bunch of idiots (and Im not talking about their views as much as I am their base ignorance on any number of issues) could sway people so much.  Not to say that this couldn't happen before...but not to this extent, and not with such ease and simplicity, and not for so low of a price.

And thats not even taking into consideration the issue that much of this media was supported by Russian propaganda efforts on Facebook and Twitter with the intent on stirring the pot.

Okay, so you're apparently warning people off because of a 20% chance of failure in marriage, based on a cherry-picked portion of a study that's increasingly irrelevant as said relationships become more common and marriage less so. The point here is that you're still advocating for avoidance of mixed-race coupling based on a faulty premise.

People simply aren't the fragile little glass statues you're imagining them to be here. No one is ending their marriage because someone somewhere is aware of a demographic fact that suggests the marriage is 20% more likely to fail. They've got real problems to deal with.

No, they aren't so fragile as to crumble under one person telling everyone to avoid the relationships because they're more likely to fail. And I never said that was the case. But when you have multiple people saying that, amongst everything else - the higher prevalence of firsthand racism, hostilities from families and other groups, harassment of their children for being mixed-race; it's placing another straw on the proverbial dromedary's back. If everyone is telling you your relationship won't succeed for various reasons, guess what happens? 

One person is easy to ignore. A whole society is nigh-impossible to.  

It's almost as if you're missing the point on purpose.

My dad told me, when I introduced him to my black girlfriend (later to be wife) that I should be mindful of the pitfalls of interracial relationships. He wasn't saying don't do it, he wasn't trying to discourage me (matter of fact he elbowed me in the ribs and said she was hot lol). He was matter of factly pointing out to be mindful of how I behave, respond, and talk within the frame of our relationship. He knew that since I could NEVER EVER fully relate to her experience as a black woman in America, that I was in peril of stumbling over my own whiteness, as it were, and farking it up.

Abuse was never mentioned. Attitude was. You [and that's the general 'you', not the specific) can still make life hard for a mixed couple without putting on a white hood.

Are you kidding ?   Trolling people for fun is an ancient tradition.

Watching people get trolled is the same.   Theres tv shows about it, umpteen youtubers doing it to the tune of millions of views a day.

Its not moral, its not right, you wouldnt want your mom to get trolled and get angry and act a fool.  But . . . .it can be funny and a guilty pleasure.  Like the freakout videos.  ,I feel sorry for most of the freaker outers.   Wish they would not have had an embarrassing moment caught on video.   But. . . .like many many others I will watch for a little guilty entertainment.


Call me weird then, but watching others suffer doesn't bring me joy. And in all the cases so far where youtube people or tv shows "troll" people, it ends with letting them in on the joke.

I really don't like my ex now, but she was raped when she was a teenager by her first boyfriend and we both agree that was terrible.  If someone decided to "troll" her that rape victims are at fault for getting raped, i would feel zero percent bad when she takes his knees out with a baseball bat.

Boxingoutsider: Rapmaster2000: Boxingoutsider: Nah.   An idiot calling me an idiot means nothing to me.   Someone saying I dont embody any democratic ideals is just an idiot.

I love to engage, especially with people who are smart and educated and disagree with me.   Tests my views, forces me to be smarter and better.  I dont mind losing an argument or a discussion or changing my views.

But . . . .and both sides do this way too much, when its all about purity tests and identity politics (you support gay rights that means you are against my god,or you don't support safe spaces on college campuses defined by race which means you are a virulent racist) its ridiculous nonsense to me.

But. . . . .thats where we are.   Both parties figured out its wildly effective and cheap.  It may turn off 15% of your base give or take, but someone like me will always vote democrat even if we nominated a candidate who wanted to ban so called micro aggressions.  Energizing the base and trying to grab a little piece of the middle in key spots seems preferable to broad based support that may turn off your base.  Thats why both partys candidates have to bow and grovel to the issue of the day to their base, regardless of whether they think its worthwhile to do so.

Hey, I'm just like you.  I don't bow down to the Republicrats or the Democans.  I'm my own man.

I'm a libertarian, Dottie... a rebel.

shiat, i bow to democrats.   I pull that lever every damn time.   Regardless of however i feel we may be losing our way a bit, its still better than the alternative.


My only advice is don't cave to their assertions of reality.  I work in an office, and one of my coworkers is a trump voter.  He's a good guy, he means well and likely just drank the kool aid while he was unemployed about how Trump can save us. 
He's got three kids and he tries to teach them right from wrong.  He's not the embodiment of white power, heck he's awkward and stutters but he means well.

Point is, don't buy into this belief of duality, we are all shades of different colors.  Heck the only commonality is that we are all meatbags slowing moving towards our eventual demise, a flicker in a infinite void.

So don't let the "putting people in boxes brigade" get you down.  Just get involved with local politics and realize that its a damn impressive thing that some of your neighbors are able to both have pants and shirts on because my god is there lots of dumb people.

Ned Stark: goat012006: Ned Stark: HotWingConspiracy: Ned Stark: Ive disavowed the importance of biology a couple times here

Here, but not in previous threads. You were prattling on about blood transfusions and disease before

Not in regards to relationships, I didn't. Someone specifically brought up biracial children.

Meh, one of my kids has the sickle cell trait passed down from mom. Not a biology guy, but apparently the trait developed to stave off malaria or something. Is that what we are talking about here?

More or less. Biracial kids get two chances for weird ethnically centered genetic disorders(like sickle cell). Also, really unusual combinations can have a rather harder time finding matching donors for anything.

Fairly trivial stuff.


Wait, what?  Sickle cell is caused by inheriting two recessive abnormal hemoglobin genes, and a white parent is unlikely to have one to pass down.  How the hell are you figuring they're getting "two chances"?

The things you joke about are people suffering trauma.  Microagressions aboslutely hurt people, especially vulnerable groups. And safe spaces save lives. Literally.

I used to laugh about safe spaces in the early days - until I actually met folk they had saved. Funnily enough, I met them after getting denied entry to a safe space. I dated a bisexual girl who went to one of the local Stonewall support groups - I accompanied her there one time and got refused entry. So I'm left outside, grumbling to myself when one of the kids (oh sweet Jebus, I'm old enough to say they were kids now) comes out for a smoke break and we start chatting. 
Turned out he'd attempted suicide twice because of the harassment he'd been getting since he came out, and it was only because of the group that he'd not attempted it a third time. Having somewhere where he absolutely knew he didn't have to worry about anyone attacking him because of who and what he was, and getting the support from people who could relate to his experience in a way I never could saved his life. 

I met the rest of the group over the weeks, and I learned their stories. And that's about the point when I stopped being resentful when they all disappeared into the building without me and understood why they needed a safe space.


Valuable insight. Thank you.

goat012006: Dang It Ned. You've backed yourself into a corner here. I feel for ya.

My dad told me, when I introduced him to my black girlfriend (later to be wife) that I should be mindful of the pitfalls of interracial relationships. He wasn't saying don't do it, he wasn't trying to discourage me (matter of fact he elbowed me in the ribs and said she was hot lol). He was matter of factly pointing out to be mindful of how I behave, respond, and talk within the frame of our relationship. He knew that since I could NEVER EVER fully relate to her experience as a black woman in America, that I was in peril of stumbling over my own whiteness, as it were, and farking it up.

Is that what you've been trying to say? Because, love ya buddy, but you've done a shiat job lol.


I should add that he not only wasn't trying to discourage me, he was actively telling me she was the one. He was worried I would fark it up and lose her. Thankfully, I didn't and she still hasn't thrown me outta her life. 13 years together and haven't missed a beat.

It once came up here that i think interracial dating is probably a bad idea.

Which is really all that was ment. Interracial relationships blow up more often than ones that aren't. It's a bad idea in exactly the same way that, say, dating wildly out of your income bracket or education level is. There is simply a greater chance of sorrow and pain in your future.

But apparently I'm a hardcore defender of the purity of the whit race?


Look, it's really very simple.

You are making a generalization that mixed-race couples have a higher failure rate, with zero evidence.  it appears to us that you are using this fallacy to justify your own personal revulsion at seeing white girls with black guys so that you don't have to admit to yourself that you're really just (at least subconsicously) bigoted but rather are just so very concerned about their happiness. There are only two possibilities: Either we are correct in our interpretation or you are just incredibly wrong in your demographic analysis.

Even IF your wild assertion was true, SO WHAT?  People date, live together, even marry, and then sometimes it doesn't work out.  Who cares?

Actually, I'll tell you who cares:  People that think the various races among the Human species were originally geographically separated (be it by nature or God) for some deliberate natural purpose rather than just as a matter of evolutionary happenstance.  We have a term for those people: Racists.

Boxingoutsider: weddingsinger: Boxingoutsider: JimmyTheHutt: weddingsinger: Oh, man, we're all gonna die, aren't we?

Yep.

Nope.   Nazis are on the run since Charlottesville.

Man that is so not true.

One issue is the false equivalence, elevating "antifa" since Charlottesville, so we get a 'both sides are bad' issue instead of GODDAMNNAZISINAMERICANANDTHEWHITEHOUSE!

At one point, articles about antifa post-Charlottesville actually outnumbered those of the alt-right/white nationalists/Nazis who MARCHED WITH TORCHES AND CHANTED 'JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US'.  National Review called them 'twin cancers.'  CNN did an 'unmasking antifa', etc, etc.

Which is not to say there aren't legit criticisms of the far-left, but, wholly sh*t fark, people, we're talking about literal Nazis, and they worked in the f*cking White House advising the President, hiring staff, and, at one point, were on the National Security Council.

Stay focused on the bigger problem.

Real actual Nazis advising the advisor to the president is an existential problem.   Fugazi Nazis marching with tiki torches and then having their lives ripped apart and having events cancelled because they are scared of being outed as a Nazi are generally irrelevant aside from driving outrage clicks on news sites.


Real Nazis publicly espousing their ideology (America First!  Build a Wall!  Mexicans are rapists!) is more than existential.  Its permissive and its recruiting.  It emboldens some to commit their hate publicly (not just Charlottesville, but hate crimes in general are up); and expands their base.  They become normalized.  Which makes it easier for their hatred to spread.  Sometimes boldly (Charlottesville march by a bunch of 'Fugazi Nazis' who, btw, were also backed by quite a few para-miltary wannabes in body armor and AR-15s), and sometimes more sublte ways.  Why shouldn't we deport all those illegals?  Why can't we have a travel ban until we figure things out?

Sure there was a brief outrage after Charlottesville, perhaps only because a woman died, and since then most people have moved on.  The casual national news certainly has.   There are too many stories. The fewer stories written or told put more focus on Antifa and those violent alt-left thugs (why the fake false equivalence is so frustrating).

On top of being a racist and overall horrible person, the fact that Bannon doesn't spell out "are" and "you" and writes things like "Dude!!! LMAO! ... Epic" in emails makes him that much more despicable.

That's what I hated most.   Ill admit I'm a closet milo video binge watcher.   I hate the way the college campuses especially seem to have become breeding grounds for a new kind of fascist identity politics where whoever is the most aggrieved becomes the most influential.   So . . . .I get off on watching him annihilate and trigger these pussy ass kids were raising.

But . . . that was really troubling.  I'm not going to vote republican ever, and I don't support white supremacy or Nazis or any of that shiat.   But. . . . like many people cited in that article,I am a long time leftist kind of pissed off with where we are going as a movement.

Its interesting how guys like milo and to a lesser extent Shapiro really resonate with many democrats who secretly despise snowflake liberalism but would almost never actually vote republican.  People like me who want there to be freedom and equality but don't want to be lectured about how intolerant they are because they arent super comfy with whatever the latest identity politics trend is.  Democrats who don't think cops are scum.   Democrats who own guns and like guns.   Democrats who believe in border security and don't want to be lectured on the cruelty of a wall or securing the border.

This is why the current gun debate is so important.  Pushing away moderates and chastising them because they aren't as angry as you or angry with the same things is just foolish.   Its partly why we have trump as our president.

To me that article painted milo as an attention seeking avaricious and obsequious kind of toady at the feet of real movers and shakers.   It painted bannon as thinking he's the man, but really being the same ki ...

FormlessOne: Trivia Jockey: What an ugly hate machine.

That's the thing, though - it's not a "hate machine," but a "power machine." They created a transformer that turned disaffection, anger, and hate into political power, and then directed that political power as they saw fit. It's why they're so brash about their whole "legal defense" threat - Milo, Bannon, and others saw these assholes as malleable, and a bunch of these folks beat these assholes into a passable weapon of political war. They manufactured a power base that, while based on disaffection, anger, and hate, could be exploited without too much difficulty.

The fun part is realizing that, once "the endless tide of 1488 scum" read this, those racists and Nazis are going to be more than a little angry at Milo, and Bannon, and all the other assholes who laughed at them behind their backs even as they pitched and directed them to their faces.
