Exactly, shit is really they need to wake the fuck up, and then get the fuck over themselves.
Says something about these assholes that the chief prison warden is the most principled man in the room.
For real. If Tillerson is 5'10" in that picture, then I’m Yao Ming (I’m not).
Just two 6'3 guys hanging out
Hey, that’s not a fair comparison! The Nazis were competent adults.
If Prince Jared or Smeagol Miller’s ancestors had been in Nazi Germany in the 30s and 40s, they would have suffered far worse fates than deportation. These guys are a betrayal and, as one of my ancestors would have said, “a shanda fur die goyim” (a shame in front of the gentiles).
I get that, but they used carter as the “worst president” in modern history. A bumbling outside know nothing (ironic they then elected trump who is more carter than any other president could be).
Without assured immunity from prosecution? I’m betting it’s a matter of digging one extra layer into his finances and political connections, or the first time he literally can’t help himself from a call to violent action in the state of New York.
Trump is always just one step shy of saying “Go murder these folks” but still putting the idea in his loyal zombie legions that they are the enemy and must be ‘dealt’ with.
Trump reminded them the crowds loved his rhetoric on immigrants along the campaign trail. Acting as if he was at a rally, he then read aloud a few made up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, like rape or murder.
I generally love almost everything on Splinter but this is stupid. We need every ally we can get right now. Some of them might not be as “pure” as we want them to be (not me personally, I’m a moderate and proud of it, although very liberal on social issues) but we need every ally possible. Look at WW2. The good guys…
Not talking about his “base”. Fuck his base. They are hopelessly lost. At this point it’s less about peeling anyone else off than it is about keeping the people he’s already lost away. If things stay the way they are RIGHT now, he and his party have already lost.
please, though, don’t weep for the objectively bad woman responsible for literally tearing families apart
In a way this is good. This is exactly what usually ends up tripping up a racist. This is why they “accidentally” say racist things in public. It’s because they’re conditioned in private as to it being okay and accepted. Nobody who isn’t privately a racist among friends ends up “accidentally” saying racist things in…
There are two separate fights in this country that aren’t mutually exclusive. The fight being fought by what you describe and the small “r” resistance for actual progressive causes, and the #Resistance. If a bunch of rich, “moderates” want to spend a lot of money fighting what Trump is doing then by all means let them…
Yeah, I disagree with a lot of the ideas this group represents, and I wholeheartedly disagree with the political philosophy, but I used up any outrage I had at the fact that moderates actually exist a long time ago. I’d rather spend my time fighting for and supporting progressive causes and demonstrating their…
