So I guess he's writing in Gavin McInnes?

And no one else wants him in their group either.

Just f*ck right off you asshole.

Oh, thank God!  I can finally like Scott Adams again!

Nah, just kidding.  I still think he's an arsehole.

Maybe Scotty's decades-younger wife told him "but I LIKE some people that aren't white!"

And then she huffed and puffed and withheld her favors, as if any kind of medicine or foreplay could get his aging old tadger up and ready for sexytimes anyways.
 
2020-10-01 3:12:06 PM  
Well, what he's really saying is that he needs Trump to pretend that he's not a racist before he'll vote for him. Spoiler alert: he's gonna vote for Trump.

People who still support Trump are racists.

People who supported Trump a week ago are also racists.

People who supported Trump a week ago but no longer support him now are racists and slow learners

Not even trying to be subtle with those ties, is he?
 
2020-10-01 3:25:10 PM  
I get the impression that he's still going to vote for Trump --- he just wants to express some independent-minded concerns first.

I never really associated him with overt racism. I thought he has more of a dude-bro/incel following.

Gosh Scott, I'm so sorry, you must feel just as abused as these young immigrant children separated from their families.

SurfaceTension: I thought he has more of a dude-bro/incel following.


He does.

His whole thing was that Trump was some kind of master persuader, which Adams himself -- being a genius and all -- realized long before the professional pundits did.  So when Trump somehow landed in the office, Adams got to ride a self-congratulatory high.

Now that Trump is doing well not to drool on himself in public, there's nothing about supporting him that 'looks smart,' so Adams is cutting his losses.
 
2020-10-01 3:33:54 PM  
The thing is, Adams is correct that the "fine people" thing is stripped of context. He's also right that the white supremacist question should have been a lay-up.

But he's blaming Trump for INCOMPETENCE, not for being a nazi. He's almost there but there are two big steps he needs to take before he can begin to heal his soul. First, he has to understand this isn't incompetence. Trump LIKES nazis and wants them to like him. Scott's proposed answers does harm to that mutual admiration. Second, he has to internalize the truth that Republicans can be nazis. That's a huge hurdle, because conservatives have this myth they love to tell themselves - no tyranny can be right-wing because tyranny is anathema to the ideology. This ignores that tyranny is anathema to the left just as much as it is the right. And it's an admission that conservatives desperately want to avoid - the idea that it's even a possibility puts constraints on their policy positions. It's so bad that the No True Scotsman overwhelmingly dominates their view of history. It's even worse than the, "It wasn't real communism," crowd's apologia. 

Because Adams can't allow the notion that conservatism can slip into tyranny, he therefore cannot appreciate when it's actually happen, and he will continue to blame Trump's actions on incompetence rather than malevolence, and he will see this not as, "he must be stopped," and will not vote in a manner conducive to insuring we don't transition from the '20s to the '30s.

Part of me hope he's realizing that Trump is nothing more than the Pointy-haired Boss. But I doubt that's what's happening.

He must have lost some money recently.

One wonders how heroically Garrison will draw the President, attempting to flee the country for financial prosecution.

I see Garrison's still imagining a lean and fit Trump.
 
2020-10-01 4:07:46 PM  
That was his long way around of expressing the very powerful emotion of "dissatisfaction". Very persuasive. Earth shattering.

Well, reading a comic strip requires being functionally literate at a first-grade level or so, so he probably hasn't.

The only thing about Trumps' overt racism which Adams doesn't like is the "overt" part.

Putting kids in cages, separating them from their parents, removing uterus from women by force was all good for him.

Meh, I can kinda understand. When I was young I was a big fan of Mike Tyson. I defended the hell out of him. Defended his sexual assault (forgive me, I was young and stupid). Defended his assaults. All of it.

Then he bit two chunks off a guys ear.

That was it, I gave in and conceded to my friends that they were right and I was wrong, he is a piece of crap.

It wasn't that the rest of it was OK and the biting was so heinous that I gave in, it was that cumulatively I couldn't hand wave it all away anymore.

This is probably like that, he isn't saying the rest of it is OK, just that all together it is so overwhelming that he can't deny it any longer.

Scott Adams is still a pile of garbage.

Actual Adams quotes put back in Dilbert comics.

Rich white man takes personal offense at something not even said about him, suddenly decides to maybe change his vote to not supporting Trump...maybe...

No story here.  Entitled white guy has feelings hurt.  Wah wah wah.
