As I've said elsewhere, I think that for a lot of people on this sub-forum, supporting left-wing politics is really, subconsciously just a way of getting back at the meanies who used to steal your lunch back at high school. The attack on civil liberties that you first saw with the Patriot Act 20 ye...

Well it's hard to say, because if it was antifa, they would want to try to pin it on Trump supporters and try to make themselves look like Trump supporters to not be noticed as Antifa, wouldn't they? No, it is easy to say, because if it was antifa (or any other group) there would be valid, empirica...

It's funny though, because of the whole Trump/Capitol thing, I keep hearing other Americans say stuff like, "We're the laughing stock of the world...non-Americans think we're a joke, oh no!" etc. But now, suddenly, it no longer matters what foreigners think when they're opinions actually ...

Do conservatives have a problem with this? They have only themselves to blame. They were the ones who fought for the right of private businesses to regulate the things their employees say in private or public, and that businesses have the right to regulate how others use their platforms for speech. ...

As much as I disagree with most things Pepe says, don't put words in his mouth or assume we know what the moderators are or are not doing. He gives me similar vibes to moderate 'both sides' Americans. And I have to imagine that to international moderates (who don't realize that the GOP is much, much...

There's way more evidence indicating this election was stolen than there is of Russia collusion with Trump. What?!? I had no idea! Hurry! Get that evidence to Trump's legal team as quickly as possible! They keep failing to find literally anything to present to his own judges! ....unless you were se...

The Trumpsters have really expanded on Nixonism, huh:
When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.
But now:
When Trump does it, that means that it is not something I think is wrong.

Trumpsters should get an Olympic gold medal for their amazing mental gymnastics.

Don't forget that when Hitler invaded Poland, he didn't mean for the war to start. It was not his attempt to start a world war. I wouldn't consider this the best example. Poland was the neceesary first step in Hitler's vision of exterminating the Slavs and Jews of Eastern Europe to provide ethnic G...

The folks at Parler try to market themselves as non-racist, respectable freethinkers, but then their users can't be bothered to even try to maintain plausible deniability. It's like watching alt-right youtubers who insist they aren't racist, only for you to read the comments and see they are in fact...

I think the only undead involved in the Christian apocalypse is the J-Man himself. The idea of a zombie apocalypse has become so popular, if you ask me, because of a sort of collective desire to see the slate wiped clean. It's similar to the end of the century/ fin de siecle sentiments from the late...

When exactly did we decide a coup attempt isn't a coup attempt if it didn't have a chance of succeeding? "Sure they were trying to murder elected officials to prevent a transfer of power but they wouldn't have succeeded even if they had lynched every single congressional democrat, so why are we...

None of this is even going into the fact that race is fake and Africans and those in the diaspora are not monolithic and identical. There are other social factors at play that encourage those of African descent to seek success in sports. Why are Jamaicans and Kenyans such good runners? They have a l...

Yeah this is kind of implicitly racist to even ask. No. There is no genetic predisposition to be good at a sport or other physical activity. The qualities that are considered to give black basketball players an advantage--height and long limbs--were formerly considered liabilities. In the mid- and e...

Trumpsters sure do have a love-hate relationship with evidence. Show them evidence of Trump's misdeeds and they move the goalposts. "That's not *really* evidence of X". Ask for evidence to back up his claims of conspiracy though, and they either give bs that has been debunked a dozen times...

(Jiheisho did we just slog through that whole speech at the same time?) My condolences. When they said Trump does edit himself, I know know what they mean... I pity the people that have to try and translate the run-on sentences, and the other sentences that just run on and on... At least I don't ha...

edit: Here is a link to the full speech transcript Getting through that whole speech from start to finish sure was a chore. Most of the length came from extended rambling about fraud numbers which he seems to have pulled out of the air. These seem to be the most salient parts to me: (Jiheisho did we...
