That's because there aren't any.

Yeah, and this is the wall that keeps falling down because it's so poorly built.

White Supremecists live by a kode, you wouldn't want to understand.

I imagine you can find one or the other, but not both, connected to white supremacists.  Upstanding in public, lying to beat the band concerning their white supremacy activities OR  Honest about their hatred, difficult to employ or justify to their non-hatey friends.

I don't think either is appropriate, just suggesting this dichotomy exists, and I'd rather they be up front about it so I know whom to avoid and not do business with.

There's nothing honest about white supremacy, the very concept is a farce.

Mailing lists full of these rubes are worth gold to any con artist. They will line up to be fleeced.

Because white supremacy has been used as a cover for grift for at least 100 years.

"You poors get to be racists and I get more money."

"To me it's no worse than a crooked politician and we have plenty of those in Washington, D.C.," says Ohlde, who contributed $50.

I'm sorry to tell you but I believe the mass majority of these people are blaming Dems for them being ripped off.

When someone shows someone codependent that their spouse is cheating on them they blame the person giving the information, not the spouse.

but says she still believes in the cause because she wants security at our borders

Ah yes, keep the Mexicans out so there's no one to work the essential jobs like taking care of your covid sick family that then die, due to the lack of immigrants.

And with many particularly essential jobs, even somebody to make sure you have somewhere to buy fresh food, a grocery clerk if you will, have such low earning potential, your more likely to be held in high regard for ripping people off through mortgage fraud than, you know, actually doing any work that keeps society moving.

Who cares your job is to care for the sick and disabled?  Tell me how much money you may have made from pushing an NBA president, while suing him for how much he disabled you and deprived your wife of your 'manhood'.

That's real success.

I remember when this "private wall" grift was launched. Knowing we'd get here one day. I'm curious how much of the money found it's way into Trump's coffers.

We Build the Wall's GoFundMe page was removed from the site, with Kolfagelaying blame on censorship and attacks from Black Lives Matter activists.

The ability of the conservative mind to portray itself as the victim of some vast and incomprehensible conspiracy in literally any situation is simply amazing.

The New York Times should pull a few of their embedded reporters out of their Trumpville diners and set them on giving us daily updates and interviews from everyone who lost money in this scam. It would put a little song in my heart to hear from them every day.

Kayleigh McEnany even admitted that it is easy to make money off the naivete of the Republican rubes. Bannon and all the other criminals latched on to Trump because they know those morons can be separated from their money pretty easily. The whole non profit Tea Party groups forming everywhere showed the path. It was nothing but a way for a few to wave the flag while pocketing dumbasses' money.

Lerien Hoyt also lost money to the crowdfunding effort but says she still believes in the cause because she wants security at our borders. She hopes the fraud allegations aren't true.
"Won't make me very happy," she said. "I'm kind of disheartened by that."


You got deliberately played for a sucker because someone saw dollar signs in your xenophobia. And you are "kind of" disheartened?

I'm no Kreskin, but I think she's going to get played again. I don't think she feels like a true grass-roots conservative American unless she gets played a few times a year.

"A spokesman for GoFundMe stated that the hosting platform has been cooperating with the investigation and has already returned roughly $6 million to donors."

Well that's too bad.

If you get caught, your money has to go to better grifters.  That's the rule.

It is almost as if a mindset that has trouble with social justice also has trouble with ethics.   Who woulda thunk it.
 
2020-08-21 12:40:47 PM  
No jokes about that guy not being able to raise all that money without Bannon giving him a hand? Fark... you disappoint me...
 
2020-08-21 12:48:15 PM  
How much character do you expect from barnyard collectivists?
These are people just barely smart enough to maybe distinguish between various breeds of farm animals, but not between individual human beings.

Indeed, "Behind the Bastards" did a segment on just that a couple of years back.

It's pretty easy to do when you preemptively conclude that all criticisms against you are inherently invalid or unreasonable.

THIS is what I meant to respond to with my criticism post. Weird.

They covered this back in the '40s with Superman vs the KKK,FFS.

"Disturbed" by the charges because they think there shouldn't be any? That's what I'm assuming, to go by their reaction to all other evidence of shenanigans by their rightwing saviors.
 
2020-08-21 1:39:28 PM  
These are the ones who built the wall through the ravine, arent they, so it was lower than the hills on both sides?
 
2020-08-21 1:54:19 PM  
Sad thing is that the same people who got scammed would probably readily donate to a GoFundMe to pay for the defense of Bannon and the others who scammed them.

//Just gonna stand there and watch me burn because I love the way you lie.
 
2020-08-21 2:22:12 PM  
Hard to feel sorry for people who line up to get f*cked in the ass again and again, so I'm not even gonna try. If their god did not want them sheared, then he should not have made them sheep.

I might have pity for white supremacists.

I don't, because they're hateful assholes who want to hurt people, but I theoretically could... They are certainly pitiable.

I mean, just think of it- imagine being a person so bereft of accomplishment and capability that they latch onto their melanin deficiency and declare themselves superior because of it.

Now, I also happen to be melanin deficient, but I have my own capabilities and accomplishments from which to take pride, so I don't need to look for it in a minor cosmetic mutation in which I had no agency.I

And that's the answer to the question in that comic that gets posted - the "supremacists" are always the worst examples because if they weren't they wouldn't be white supremacists.

\The same applies to nationalism

I'm trying to figure out who could possibly think that a national border wall can be funded privately through a crowd-sourcing campaign. I don't think that's how these things work.
 
2020-08-21 10:51:40 PM  
Yet they are still writing out checks.

"I was conned by a con man," almost none of them conceded.
