He will still vote for him.

The rest is just him trying to make himself feel better about doing it.

OMG that's horrible.


Truth hurts.

Fark off Scott. You weren't even funny in your Babylon 5 appearance.

bdub77: Gosh Scott, I'm so sorry, you must feel just as abused as these young immigrant children separated from their families.

Go find a nice firepit to jump into.


White man's burden
 
2020-10-01 4:11:46 PM  
Yeah, he says this now, and tomorrow, when the Republican PR machine has rolled out their endless obfuscations and equivocations, he'll decide it wasn't really that bad and get back on his bullshiat, just like thay all do.
 
2020-10-01 4:12:36 PM  
Everyone be nice to him on Twitter now. We don't want to force him to go back on his word.
 
2020-10-01 4:12:59 PM  
How are his sock puppets planning on voting?
 
2020-10-01 4:13:07 PM  
Kind of feeling hopeful.   Adams is one of the top derpers.
 
2020-10-01 4:13:25 PM  
His comics are funny and I bought a book of his that I still have to read.

That said......

I dont agree with him politically, but whatever. Funny man is still funny. I know this is Fark and I should banish him to CancelCulture Hell. But I wont. Deal with it. We are grownups with differing opinions.

Trump's racism is nothing new. If Trump from 1970s did not clue you in, maybe Trump v1990s might have. Nevertheless surely Trump v2016 campaign wasn't a dog whistle, more like a bullhorn. OK, so clueless could be too dense they missed all that, but surely Charlotsville Trump certainly must have done it right? Nope, I guess Trump v2020 still didn't cause any to catch on either?

Is it that he now thinks Trump is a racist, or that he knows Trump is a racist but wanted him to not be so public about it. Maybe instead of a white hood, Trump could wear one that has a gold tassel in the back?
 
2020-10-01 4:13:36 PM  
Bullshiat, you know you're going to vote for him anyway. It's like a heroin addict deciding to kick, but there's still a few hits left sitting on the dresser.
 
2020-10-01 4:13:39 PM  
He saw that leopard prowling around his house again, didn't he?

F*ck off, Scott.  He has basically done the same thing a dozen times already, if not more, and done dozens more worse things besides.  Your performative, fake dismay over this is nearly as pathetic as all the lies that Trump wears over his shortcomings like fig leaves.

Sorry... but you should not listen to Scott Adams.  Even if he agrees with you.

A couple of weeks ago he told his twitter followers that Antifa and Nazi Germany teamed up against the Allies in WWII.  Anyone who is that big of a liar or has that little grasp of history needs to be ignored.  Even if he is trying to back you up.

Is Scott Adams a slow guy with bad eyes who needed to spend 4 years approaching the wall before he was able to read the writing on it?

Or is he just an irredeemable rat who just figured out the ship was going down.

Probably lip service but better than nothing I suppose.

vygramul: 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.


Smarted but this misses one major point. Trump doesn't really *like* nazis. He supports people who support him and speak well of him, and doesn't care about their ideology.

Not even trying to be subtle with those ties, is he?


Trump's tie looks like a graph of the S&P 500 three weeks from now.
 
2020-10-01 4:16:06 PM  
F*ck you, adams, you f*cking racist.  Your only concern is that people know that you love racists, just like people are only sorry that they got caught committing crimes.

You insincere, sack of shiat.
 
2020-10-01 4:16:40 PM  
He did say that trump can win him back by condemning the racists....I'm sure he'll still vote for trump either way
 
2020-10-01 4:17:15 PM  

NewportBarGuy: Jack Sabbath: 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.

He's paying for this?

Holy crap2!
 
2020-10-01 4:18:01 PM  
I'm shocked that Scott took off his klan hood long enough to make that statement.
 
2020-10-01 4:18:17 PM  
Dilbert has always sucked.
 
2020-10-01 4:18:25 PM  
He just has to fix it to get your vote back? What, he just has to say he's sorry for being a white supremacist? Adams is a farking tool.
 
2020-10-01 4:19:08 PM  
I guess Scott's been getting calls from publishers that they aren't Interested in his work anymore.
 
2020-10-01 4:19:23 PM  
I think it's amazing that Scott Adams seriously thought Trump would be able to say something thoughtful and coherent. Has he never seen the guy speak before? How was he on board before now?

Are there podiums in that picture? A stage? Fireworks? Who are the people? 

I can't understand Garrison without labels on everything.
 
2020-10-01 4:20:20 PM  
Scott adams man... What a shame he had some really funny writing ages ago. I was hoping he had finally circled back to reality with some sort of stomach dropping nauseating realization at seeing that deep down this was actually the same reality that we had been living in and that he was the one who has been wrong this whole time then he gets right back to:

"Could he win my vote back? Yeah all he has to do is denounce white supremacists"

fark off Scott, if you haven't figured out by now that the trump that openly courts white supremacists is the real deal trump and the press releases from the white house disavowing them have nothing to do with trump himself than you are an irredeemable sucker. Donate your brain to science when you die so they can study what caused your cognitive decline into delusional narcissism.

Much accurate. Such genius.

I see Garrison's still imagining a lean and fit Trump.


The first thing I thought seeing that was: "hey wait, Trump doesn't have a waist!"
 
2020-10-01 4:21:54 PM  
Scroll down and read the thread where he responds about fine people and hand gestures.

This man is a farking moron.

He's still going to vote for him.  He just doesn't want anyone else to know he's voting for him.  He has a business to run after all.
 
2020-10-01 4:23:04 PM  
Actually now that I think about it maybe adams needs to invest in some carbon monoxide detectors, it looks like the damage might have already been done, but a persistent monoxide leak might account for his delusions and mentall decline into the trump apologist camp

He probably thought Trump didn't go far ENOUGH and wasn't a proud boy about the question.

Funny, I haven't seen a single poster in this thread or similar Adams threads demanding that he be fired.
Most are calling him an asshole.
 
2020-10-01 4:24:43 PM  
Spoiler alert: "He lost my vote. Can he get it back? Yeah, all he'd have to do is fix that."

Someone just wants some attention.

thejd800: .@ScottAdamsSays feels personally abused by Trump bombing on the white supremacy question during the debate. Adams says Trump lost his vote. https://t.co/VQxQstqKso


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 thinks the PHB in Dilbert is the protagonist.  Same with Dogbert, Catbert, and the Trump insert he added later.
 
2020-10-01 4:25:36 PM  
I'll take every pre-election renouncement of Trump I can get.

That being said, slimeballs like Adams realize the writing is on the wall for Trump and are trying to get back in good graces, so they can point out how much of a 'team player' they were when they try to worm their way back into the public discourse.

I've made a list, I won't be forgetting any time soon.

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

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


You can go back to liking Dilbert from before the animated version on UPN was cancelled.

I think that's when he cracked. He said they dumped the show because it wasn't black enough.

gopher321: F*ck you anyway you Trumphumping, unfunny...

...something...


Jesus I'm running out of insults.


Try watching Lenny Henry as Gareth Blackstock in the BritCom "Chef!".  He had a command of invective that could strip the hide off a sous chef while never venturing into profanity.

Some examples:

(delivered like a Marine Drill Sergeant, just short of popping blood vessel):  "You are a pea-brained, prat-faced, pompous, pillock-headed cretin. If you took an intensive course of intelligence injections and studied till you drop, then one day you might make it to moron third class failed."

(delivered in a deceptively calm, polite, erudite tone - shifting to apoplectic Drill Sergeant for the last four words):  "While I was down there, I couldn't help noticing that the kitchen floor is in the most disgustingly filthy state that it is possible for the human brain to conceive. Amateur microbiologists amongst you will find much down there that will enthrall and fascinate. Very likely species as yet unknown to science are breeding freely underfoot even as I speak. It is possible that I'm kneeling all unbeknownst on a cure for the common cold, herpes and male pattern baldness all rolled into one. Put all such considerations out of your minds and clean this frigging floor!"

Ambivalence: When Scott Adams thinks you've gone too far, you've gone too far.


When Scott Adams thinks you've gone too far.... he's a farking loon and is liable to change his mind back tomorrow. But it is nice to see even the crazies aren't feeling confident in their beloved despot in progress. That's really nice to see.
