    On another note, Donald Trump has overplayed his hand...he's given Dems a unifying force to rally behind and forget their differences (...again).

    Somewhat miffed about it too because I wanted to see where the piss fight between "The Squad" and everyone else in the DNC was gonna go, and now it's been cut short.

    Ben Shipario both attacks and defends Omar in one instance against the chanting that crowd did at Trump's latest rally.




    You know Trump royally fucked up when you got people like him shaking their head at what he's doing to Americans.

      I made that post before those chants happened, bro.

      I don't support deporting Omar. I don't really like her much myself (not because of the "some people did something" thing), but ideological purity testing is bad (it's the basis for why they're asking for her to be deported).

      But on the subject of Trump...

      There's an explanation going around that Donald Trump actually made those stupid Tweets to produce a "cover" controversy...because he's actually working to change the asylum system as we currently know it. The attempt is to make it so that people who haven't applied for asylum in the countries they crossed on their way to the US will not be able to apply for asylum in an attempt to reduce the backlog of asylum seekers (the article mentioned that 50-75% of applicants have their applications for asylum denied).

      ...And they might be right that that’s what Trump is doing because just like with that Tweet Ilhan Omar made some months ago, the House held a vote over the matter of Trump's Tweets and now outlets are focusing much more on the matter of the Tweet controversy than other issues.

        This implies Trump has some level of intelligence and does underhanded political tactics (you know things people accused Hiliary of being capable of) but that is waay too much credit. If anything it would be his cabinet making use of all the noise he's making as cover for their plans. I find that more likely.

            Never read anything on any news website that's marked with "opinion".

          Thoughts on Trump vetoing the bipartisan bills designed to stop him from selling weapons to Saudi Arabia?

            Gay AF.

            Our relationship with Saudi Arabia is gross and Trump is dumb for blocking the bill that would make it less gross.

            BTW, normally I just ignore stuff like NYT and WaPo opinion pieces...but that one just sounded too funny to pass up...

            I managed to find an archive link.

            Wasn’t as funny as I thought it would be, the R&M references were only in like, one paragraph.

              At this point I am just glaring at people who support Trump and pointing them to shit like this, basically saying -- "Explain!"

                      Trump believes that you shouldn't jeopardize your economy and your citizens financial freedom to fight against a threat that has to be dealt with globally in a political climate where a majority of countries are unwilling to cooperate, especially in the light of that no reliable predictions on the symptoms of man made climate change has come to pass.

                      "After facing ridicule for suggesting over the weekend that Hurricane Dorian might strike Alabama, Donald Trump showed reporters a map on Wednesday that he personally altered to help prove his point. During a briefing on the storm’s threat to the U.S. East Coast, the president held up an Aug. 29 map from the National Weather Service showing initial projections of Dorian’s track into Florida. But the map had been changed -- by the president -- with a black line that extended the storm’s path beyond Florida and into southern Alabama"

                          So I've noticed back in 2016, Bernie Sanders Dank Meme stash was a chillspot for posting shitmemes of Bernie going Super Saiyan and making jerk-off gifs out of Hillary's hand gestures and generally just having a good time.

                          And now its a community of hardcore soviet style communists, unironically calling anyone who isn't a hardcore soviet style communist a fascist and posting shit like:



                          Big Yikes.

                            And since Bernie Sanders only lives to pander to his voters, this is the kind of people who'd be in power if he won

                              Yeah, I've thinking about leaving the group since it's really not any fun these days. They do still post the occasional fun meme, but most of them are just extremist losers that have zero understanding about anything they're talking about.

                                I just had a giant blow-up argument with like 3 of them in a thread where they were trying to tell me that there's no persecution of anti-government speech in China--thats a lie created by Western Imperialists--that the Hong Kong protests were staged by the CIA, and that believing that the Hong Kong protests are a pro-democracy movement + that mainland China imposing Maoism on Hong Kong and Taiwan would be a bad thing makes you a far right white supremacist who believes racist lies about the CCP who hates Chinese people.

                                Here's the thread: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bern...action_generic

                                Scroll down to Robert Schroedl's "More racist shit from western leftists. Why don't you whine about tankies some more and shut down discussion" post

                                I fucking went off on these clowns in a way I have not gone off in a long, long time.

                                  I started reading some of it... But goddamn, those guys are stupid as shit.

                                  -edit-

                                  "Sanders is a centrist, my dude"

                                  What the actual fuck? Like, I get that the US is skewed, quite heavily, to the right. But nowhere in the world does Bernie qualify as a centrist. lol

                                    The Left in the US has to consist of the most retarded people on Earth. Alyssa Milano going after Ted Cruz for a debate is like an antelope jumping a lion.

                                    Ted's a fucking Harvard educated lawyer, and you're an uneducated soap opera actress. You're going to make yourself look like an idiot, you're going to make your fellow ideologists look like idiots, and you're securing Trump's second term.

                                      and that's why I left that group.

                                      The moment I was dog-piled (by some of the mods as well) after saying that Bernie wasn't a "Liberal Imperialist" I realized that the group had lost it's appeal.
