This is what fascism looks like. :satstunned:
It's like Starship Troopers without the humour.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE?


But yeah...Rudy Giuliani continues to outdo himself in being a total piece of shit, even more so of course since he became a Trump lackey. Scary video there.

Starship Troopers is simultaneously the best act of trolling and the best film on anti-fascism.

I dont know. I was in high school when that movie came out. I remember loving it because it was stylish violence. I only got the commentary after taking some film classes and learning how see subtext a little better.

Debate 3: Yang fucking still doesn't wear a tie! And he wears American flag pin on WRONG side of his suit! Castro says Biden's brain is melting, the MSM-crowd goes crazy! The rest as usual; moderators with insane right-wing framing, calls for "unity" and saying Trump is bad, Sanders with the refreshing soc-dem advocacy, Booker pointing out he lives in the PROJECT & Beto speaking Spanish for no good reason.

no tie? so what - most of America has gone casual Friday all week long, he comes from an industry famous for making work casual the new business suit (most of the time)

Which lapel did he wear the pin on. If his right (left to viewer), it's not really wrong, it just that when one shakes hands, one is more likely to look at that side of the body. I've known people over the years who do this quite consciously.

Beto is addressing a part of the audience. Also, it's a border thing - we flipped back and forth between the languages all the time. Some things just make more sense in one language or the other; or when one doesn't know the right word, one fakes it. My favorite sentence: El rufe esta leakiando.

Biden. oh well, let's hope primary voters have a clue - or maybe they want someone who sleep his way through office, especially if there's a good running mate. Some little troll keeps going on about Clinton, no?

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

Interesting take on Trump. Most politicians are on message in public , never say anything out of line but privately lie and backstab each other. Trump is exactly the opposite, he tells lies in public and makes outrageous remarks about others in public. But in private he sticks to his promises and he does what he said he would in his policies. I prefer his style to traditional politics as most politicians do not do what they say and are on message public but in private they are different and cannot be relied upon.

Good to know the New York Times generally considers getting a penis thurst into your face "harmless fun".

Brett is innocent as not proven guilty . Prove it otherwise in court or keep quiet. I think it’s wrong to condemn people not proven guilty.

No need to lie, Cipp. You constantly spread allegations and conspiracy theories.

You can just ignore that. Who cares if it happened or not or even who did it. The fact that this article called it harmless fun and that you don't belong in an ivy league school if you don't wanna be harassed is toxic. Shows how ridiculous new york times is.

It's a reference to a video game show I watch.

You'll be recanting those words in 3 years when Lord Emperor Hillary Clinton ushers us into a mini Ice Age powered by the freezing-cold heart of socialism and false rape allegations.

So, at some point the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will let us know who to attack. This is perfectly fine, right? This is somehow different from a Hillary stupid war because nobody could possibly foresee how ultra-right wing nationalist government won't soon fight wars over resources. :folded:

I am not commenting on climate or a potential Clinton standing as candidate again . Wait and see now. I may comment on actual weather in the weather thread or the final actual Democrat candidate. I hope it will be Joe Biden as that would be hilarious.

Kublai, it’s Saudi that was attacked without reason. Should they just sit back and accept more attacks on the chin? It’s clear Iran is going to be seen as the attacker of course.

Dangerous situation. Saudi leadership is not to be trusted. Trump is not to be trusted.

If the net effect of these attacks is oil prices go up and USA attack Iran, the biggest beneficiary of both of these things just happens to be, oh yes, Saudi Arabia.

No, no. I don't disagree with you there. But Trump is saying that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is setting the terms as to how the US will respond to the attack. That's what I'm recoiling to.

Spoilered it but if you wanna see a huge fucking imbecile take a look. What kind of a immoral psychopath goes against healthcare like that? Then it turns out he's a business owner. Makes total sense. It's funny, he complains about paying because of ACA when he had 84 employees, but within a few years it almost doubled? Funny, it's almost like it actually didn't hurt him that much and he's just crying cause he didn't get as much dividends as he initially wanted.

Really tempted to put this fucker in his place, but it'll be random for a Canadian gaming channel to do that.

Man you should cool down. He’s a dick for sure and it’s insane that the US doesn’t have proper healthcare. However, your personal outrage, while warranted, is probably not good for you. It seems like every post I see from you is freaking out about politics or talking about anxiety issues. There A LOT of things to be mad about in the world, but perhaps you should chill out and try to sort yourself first. Worked for me anyway. :think:

Trump is to be trusted as he has done as he said he would. He will do the right thing.
