I would expect nothing less from the scum of the earth.

If the border was actually open nobody would die trying to cross it.

I'm so f*cking sick of this "open borders" nonsense. The f*ck do they think an open border is? We used to have one with Canada, but this country lost its collective goddamned mind after 9/11 and now traveling to Canada is needlessly difficult and annoying.

The GOP are the ones that deserve to be abandoned in a locked trailer during the hottest months in Texas.


Fark their feelings and their lives because they don't give a fark about anyone else's.

Hey, you pull guns out of all the schools and your legislative pens out all the vaginas, then maybe we'll start putting immigrants up in Trump properties to live their lives.

Deal?

Clearly what is needed is more legislation to ban these long trucks.

It's truly spectacular that the goddam Border Patrol doesn't know the difference between an open border and a closed border.

There is no hope.

You know what? fark it, shut down the border nothing in or out via Mexico. Let's see how long those rural farks manage without them.

If the Red Hats actually cared about lives...they'd make it easier to immigrate to the US.

Ther is literally no depth the GOP will not plumb to lay any tragedy on the feet of the Democratic Party.

To paraphrase John Oliver, "See that thing waaaaaaay up there, if you squint and look really hard, you can almost make it out, We'll, that's rock bottom."

When I was a kid my mother would take us across the border just for groceries. I went with my uncle once and he bought cigarettes and stuffed them into every nook and cranny in his car. He risked serious criminal charges to save like $30. In high school kids would drive to the country and hop a farmers fence to smuggle fire crackers and/or weed. Living next to the border had its advantages. Now if you threw a rock across the border they'd haul you in for questioning.

About as many that died from Covid until the Nazis give a damn. Oh, they still don't give a damn about those deaths? Well, there's your answer.

Abbott pretty much tried that (close to it). And it significantly amplified what had already been occasional supply shortages in this country.

I think there was an economic loss exceeding a billion $ due to his short little stunt.

It's about distracting you with stupid issues created by the Republican Party and reacted to by the Democratic Party in order to restrict your easy, cheap, and free movements.

A border which brown people can cross without being sent to concentration camps for the "crime" of crossing that same border while non-white.

That's what the f*ck they think an open border is.

Are you people even listening to yourselves?  Lots of Republicans are like this because THEY think they're the victims.  They think THEY'RE the one being persecuted for their beliefs and opinions.  They've been spoon fed for a decade by desperate old white men that facts don't matter, just feelings.  And when we yell back at them rightly for being brainwashed morons?  They start thinking those old white men were RIGHT!

And you know the worse thing about it? YOU DON'T CARE.  You just push that nice little funny button because you think I'm just a troll since I don't exact think the way about this situation that you do.  Someone said 'Fark their feelings' and it somehow gives you the idea that you didn't have to be nice anymore.

I'm not asking you to love the GOP, for Fark's sake.  I'm asking you to stop trying to feel like you need to say meaner things than they do or give into the bait to see these people as less than human, and having their leaders justify them thinking the same of you.

Mildly surprised this isn't about the Republicans actively advocating for roasting migrants in trailers.

These are god damned fascists. THERE IS NO BOTTOM.

It's not like /b/ which is the pus-scum that leaks out of the bottom of the second barrel that catches the gross stuff that leaks out of the bottom of the barrel and that's it.

There is no goddamn bottom to how vile, awful and deplorable fascists are. One of their defining characteristics is that they turn the act of being deplorable into an anti-virtue signal. That's why Poe's Law is dead.

Gee, maybe you're right.  If we just try to reason with them and compromise, they'll meet us halfway!  Welcome to 1980.

I don't feel like I need to say mean things for internet points.  I feel like in order to meet on level ground, Republicans need to advance about 60 years for the physical health of the planet and its people, and for the benefit of society ... or they need to get off the planet.

And since they're sprinting backwards, I'll have to go with the whole get them off the planet thing.  Don't care how.

We can "be nice" and explain all the facts we like, right up until they attempt to stab up in our sleep with a "tactical knife" attached to an AR-15. Nothing is going to get through to these people.

We tried taking the high road with the GOP and it never works.  They are all fark-you-I-got-mine subhuman filth.  They have no compassion or empathy for anyone who is not them.  It's a shame Covid didn't kill large numbers of these amoral farks.

...compromise?  Who said anything about compromise?  I'm saying we starve them.

Not the rank and file...the husky ones who chirp off doctrine...the queen ants.  We've been pretty successful in doing boycotts of them and pushing some of them off of TV and radio in the past.  When they complain, just retweet back the things they said back.  Don't attempt to argue.  Just say the view is unacceptable, and withdraw love and support.  They'll naturally leech off what's left of their fanbase, who will either die disillusioned or realize that "hey, maybe this dolt just wants me for my money" and skitter off.

Your enemy is in the thousands, not in the hundreds of thousands.  Target accordingly.


Olthoi:We can "be nice" and explain all the facts we like, right up until they attempt to stab up in our sleep with a "tactical knife" attached to an AR-15. Nothing is going to get through to these people.

Uh-huh.  Let's assume this "people" you were talking about wasn't a typical Republican, but, say, some other ideaological minority.  ANTIFA, perhaps?  BLM?  Zionists?  Hate to play True Scotsman here, but you've essentially boiled a group you hate into a caricature.  Essentially, you're doing what they're doing right now with the mythical Liberal, here to slaughter the rich and privileges, sweep away your firearms, and move the LGBT Latin American Brigade into your basement.

I live in the district of Matt Gaetz.  He has yet to send his red-capped death soldiers after me for my severe annoyance at me.  Granted, if I stop posting suddenly, you will assume he is responsible for my death.

I don't want this to be taken as a personal slight, but I have to say this.

You have NEVER tried taking the high road with the GOP in any of your posts on Fark.  Not even once.  You have always hated them, like several others here I have tagged "Preemptive Snark Brigade".  I do not expect you to ever feel the need to try to play nice.  I don't want you to.  You got your own reasons to hate these guys, and to put it bluntly, far be it from me to ever convince you.

All I'm saying is that if you don't want to tone down the rhetoric, direct it towards people who really deserve it, people in power who let this happen and who will keep letting this happen until we find someone with more money and influence to step in and say enough.

I don't know when it changed but going old school in the 70s we used to just walk into Mexico from San Diego. I think we needed a picture ID. I don't know what the cars needed. We were headed to Tijuana.
