    How pathetic it is that you can imagine to live in such a perfect happy sunshine society that you can focus and spend 99% of your political capital and energy on concerns of less than 1% of population.

    Idk what erich stands for besides kill Republicans, but you stand for nothing of much substance anyways, your preaching less than two weeks ago was that the tanks were ready to roll and we were all doomed here. That style of ideology really reflects how distorted your views are on what the actual issues are here. The solutions are simpler and just require action to be taken, but it will never be immediate. If however you, like aw and others here just profess knowledge of doom, eat up media narratives about how close things were and constantly deny reality, you're just part of the same problem as Erich, all you are is a different part of the equation. Congrats on being wrong, again.

    In this case, I happen to subscribe to the statement, how worthy a society is can be measured by how it treats its weakest members.

    In your own worldview. does being all but one rung from the bottom and being swindled into joining the Republican's mean your treatment by the system no longer dictates the worth of the society? Because you'd have them all gassed apparently and that says nothing at all of worth exists in our society, and you are fine with that.

    Being a racist dipshit is a choice. Being a bigot is a choice.

    Their victims don't choose to be victims, for the most part. They are made so by racists.

    They can always choose not to be cunts. If they don't, then who fucking cares what happens to them.
    meh

    You of all people should understand that being racist is usually due to upbringing and the people you are surrounded with. Sure, there's a minority of unrepentant racists, but the majority are simply ignorant and brainwashed.

    I mean unless you want the USA to end up like South Africa, which is definitely a possibility given the current "antiracist" rhetoric and general trends we see.

    Yeah, turn the other cheek so they keep beating you and laughing.

    Thing is, I've seen how quickly racists abandon their beliefs when they start being persecuted for them.

    there is no way towards a better tomorrow without solidarity, and solidarity does not have room for bigotry or exclusion.

    so fuck off, you're ad-libbing scumservative talking points.

    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    What else has he ever really done besides screech this worldview? He's literally jerking off about Trump conducting a flawless coup, and never deals with what the fuck reality is around him. When all your friends are right wing reality deniers, you can't just blame them for your views, you are choosing to reside in that world, and I think he enjoys it.

    Fuck off and back off, and tell me, other then being on the right side of the culture war (from your perspective) what on this blue Earth defines Young as a leftist?

    This started with you whining about centrist conspiracy to keep true leftist down in DNC debates.

    And I asked and you gave no fucks toward answering, what makes Young a leftist other then liberal social views? Or mayor Pete?

    I can understand you fighting for Sanders, but above two are worst possible neolib capitalist schills???

    Personally im just against media censorship of candidates with unorthodox policies that are outside of the neoliberal consensus that D and R share, and them just running Orange Man pieces 24.7 instead.
