    Republican candidate forgets to keep the racism on the down low.

    A candidate for mayor in Charlotte, N.C., listed "white" among her qualifications in Facebook comments that have since been deleted.

    The chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party rebuked Kimberley Paige Barnette, who has since apologized for her remarks.

    "VOTE FOR ME!" Barnette, 53, wrote on her Facebook page, the Charlotte Observer reported.

    "REPUBLICAN & SMART, WHITE, TRADITIONAL."

    other than that, Russians are peace-loving people who only commit atrocities unless they absolutely have to, just to defend the Motherland.

    Yeah, some groups got relocated. Collectivization was harder on some than others..
    Yeah, it was probably harder on 7-10 million people killed "relocated" into mass graves just during 1932-1933.

    Yeah, some groups got relocated. Collectivization was harder on some than others. Shit sucks, but that's different than the deliberate multi-continental genocide of an entire race carried out by the Spanish, French, and British in their quest for riches and "manifest destiny," justified by the supposed racial superiority of Europeans.
    Are you really trying to find a silver lining with soviet-era crimes?

    Stop posting.

    No, let him post. Silencing the opponents (usually by murdering them) is what socialists do.

    The more he posts, the more obvious the evils of his ideology become.

    No, you nonce. I'm trying to show that Soviet era crimes have parallels in plenty of other conflicts involving supposedly "good" or "just" social regimes/ideologies/systems of political economy. Did you miss the part where I said "This shit is unacceptable?"

    Also the context was the Native American genocide carried out by Europeans. If we're gonna hand out awards for needless slaughter, sadism, and human degradation, the Spaniards beat the Soviets any day of the week.

    The interesting thing is that because Trump folks hate the GOP, they're not seeing this as a negative.

    I know you don't care but I am legitimately offended. It's a bit beyond the pale especially when the vast majority of the deaths from this storm aren't even going to be Americans but hey whatever it takes to make a cheap political point right? I'm not gonna engage this further but yeah it's in seriously poor taste.
    They were given plenty of warning. If they are too lazy to move out of the way then why should anyone help them. Lazy people gona lazy.

    And what about those too poor to evacuate? Or those who'd like to evacuate, but can't because people are hoarding fuel?

    Sad to say that many choose to stay due to the fear of looters in the aftermath. Add that to those without the means to self-evacuate and you have a potential tragedy.

    Is it only wishful thinking, when I say Trumph's impeachment odds just got way better by going against GOP?

    Pence looks like a much better GOP soldier-president.

    Trump is save as long as he retains his base. The GOP may hate Trump but they fear the backlash that would come from his supporters if they turn on him.

    So nothing will happen before the mid-terms.

    Most likely there will be a concerted push for Trump not to stand for a second term. Trump has a history of getting bored easily and he thought that being President was like a part-time job. So convincing Trump to declare himself the greatest president every before huffing off is their best bet atm.

    They probably shouldn't fear it right now TBH.. I mean if they get rid of him now there will be a shitstorm for a bit, but the next election is how far away? All but the most diehard people will have forgotten about it by then (ie, not enough to really do much next election).
