Yes I know, alt-right crypto-fascist etc.

And of course, I know have to say this here because some of you will view this as support for Trump, but the point is that I didn't see any of you jumping up and down when Obama was doing this.  And for the record, that is not to call you hypocrites.  I don't think you are.  I just think -- for a variety of reasons -- you are more sensitive to it now (which is probably a good thing -- I am definitely more sensitive to it now), but that sensitivity has turned some of you into hysterical loons.  Calm the fuck down.

But my decorum

The great thing about this Sentinel-style sidelines nonsense is that you don't have to commit to anything.  You can just be a breezy, air-headed liberal while other people do your cultural dirty-work for you.  Make non-committal "Of course property damage and riots are bad, but!" style comments, but then go home to your nice middle class house and shit post on the internet.

oh no not a porn actress!

If people stopped being degenerates, there'd be no porn for the non-degenerates to get off to.

To be clear, I don't think she is a degenerate for being a porn actress.  Just that it is hilarious, and peak whiteness.

Oh well.  I guess by some definition I'm a crypto-fascist.  But, by other definitions I'm a racist, a sexist, etc.  It doesn't bother me.

eta: like, the root words of it in latin mean "to move away from one's race" and it has connotations of immorality because the fist people to throw the word around were real concerned about race treason, racial purity, etc.

 I've been perfectly clear on how I'm using the word.  I mean, most antifa goons are fucking white, a product of white liberal education systems. You can't get any whiter than a 100 pound girl with dreadlocks bragging about collecting her Nazi scalps, throwing glass bottles at people, then getting her head kicked in, and then everyone finding out she's actually a porn actress.  That's fucking peak white person. I'd call her a degenerate.  And a fucking idiot.

As far as who makes up these groups, I find their views repellent and antithetical to living in a free society, and most of them are authoritarians in waiting.  Many of the sub groups that associate or march with Antifa are equally disgusting to me (black bloc, certain BLM groups, anarchists, radical feminists, actual communists, etc).  Their actions and views are immoral and misanthropic, and that's the word I use.

Okay, I read that as you saying there was a possible threat of re-ascendant fascism. If that's not what you think, no problem.

the possible threat of re-ascendant fascism?

This is what I mean, and where I have to just step back.  If you really think this, I don't know what to say.

It's only "beep boop" because you disagree with it.
No, it's beep boop because the thing most people are concerned about when it comes to deportation is people who have established lives here as part of communities being kicked out. That has absolutely gone up under Trump. Pointing out that fewer people have been caught at the border under Trump is presenting a statistic that has nothing to do with the issue.

It has nothing to do with your issue.

You can look at the "longer arc of history" and still come to the same conclusion.  Leftist regimes have been responsible for millions upon millions of deaths, all the while claiming to fight fascism and oppression -- and in some cases actually fighting them, but ending up worse than the people they replaced. 

The fact that you are not worried about leftist crazies is an artifact of your political beliefs.  You see an "ascendant violent right-wing formation" but I have no idea idea what you're talking about.  I see the same old neo-nazis up their same old tricks, and containable using the methods we have always used (ostracizing them, etc).  What you don't seem to see is that the specter of Nazism has turned some people absolutely fucking crazy with fear, and has given opportunists the opening to exploit that fear with their own particular brand of authoritarian horseshit. 

Finally, a phrase like "encrusted with X overtones" is a way for you slide your interpretation on top of the word I'm using.  I call them degenerates because that's what they are: they have degenerated.  They are immoral.

For example, don't set cars on fire.

seriously there are ICE agents literally destroying people's lives under orders from this garbage administration, but let's throw around a gross word like "degenerate" over property damage

Are deportations up or down from Obama?

Wtf kind of question is this? They are absolutely up,

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
Well there we just disagree.  I think Trump is a bad president.  I think he is bad for our country, and doing bad things. But I also do not think this is Armageddon. I think too many people have gotten carried away.

The whole government is not Donald Trump. Courts, counties, municipalities, and states still have their powers.  We're not living in a dictatorship, he is not the Emperor from Star Wars and Antifa are not the Jedi. In the case of the inauguration protests, the courts did what they were supposed to do, and everything is fine.  People have given this asshole way too much power over their lives.

What's "worse" for me is certain people on the left -- who are already prone to hysterics -- getting even more hysterical.  And for the record, I'm upset at car burning and window smashing for two reasons: 1) rioters generally do not give a shit whose cars they burn, whose windows the break and 2) people can get hurt and/or killed.  It's not a bit of harmless fun.  I don't care if some rich guy got his car burned.  I'm upset that degenerate -- yes, degenerate -- babies are starting potentially dangerous fires because they didn't get what they wanted.

I could easily turn your question around: why are you upset over the legal system taking its course, and not the normalizing of street violence by leftist idiots?

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
Well now you're talking about something else.

Your original questions whether or not I care about how I "sound," e.g. the impression I make to you and other posters on this forum.  My answer to that is that I don't.  I don't care if you find the way I phrase my sentiments uncomfortable or offensive. 

If you are asking me whether or not I care that protesters set cars on fire, then of course I do.  If you are asking me if I have opinions on those people -- in particular, if they are scumbags and shit heads -- then, again, of course I have opinions on them.  I have no reason to couch those opinions in any terms other than how I want. 

Finally, when you ask me what I am trying to "express," I'm not sure what you mean.  My words are clear enough.  I don't know what else to say.  If you mean to suggest that I could be nicer in my utterances, well, uhh, I don't know what to say to that, considering I've been reading your particular internet posts for a decade.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
well, you don't have to care. but if you just stop to think about it for a sec, what impression do you think you're making?

The answer is the same.  I don't care what impression I make to people who think it is okay to burn cars because you don't like an election, or someone who actually believes our idiot president is a Nazi.  You guys have reached peak levels of pandemonium. Unless I toe your line, I will sound crazy.  There is no reasoning with you on this, as I've learned over the last 15 years of talking about politics on the internet, and 12 of those years with many you directly.

What I have learned recently (say, in the last two or three years) is that it really doesn't matter.  Apart from being a little nuts politically, most of you are perfectly nice human beings who I like.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
really curious: how do you think these posts of yours make you sound?
I don't care.  We are so far apart on agreeing about any of this shit it doesn't matter.

ETA: Also, I 100% believe that if you set cars on fire because you don't like the results of an election, you are a genuine piece of shit.  I don't care how that makes me "sound" on an internet message board.

Gotta love those middle class liberals who are so down with setting cars on fire.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
I have no problem with them throwing degenerate antifa scumbags who burned cars, broke windows, etc, into jail.  Fuck those idiot babies. But, protesters at an inauguration is perfectly fine and trying to charge them was shameful.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
No it isn't, calm down.

ETA: Sorry your stepdad was a piece of shit.  You should garrote him with an extension cord.

I cannot believe how much time cable news is wasting on the "Donald Trump is Fat!" breaking news.  How fucking stupid are these people?  It was on all morning, still going.

I watched Bladerunner 2049 last night.  Really great movie.  The cinematography was even better on my TV than in the theater (I think I sat too close in the theater).  It's long, but worth every minute.

anyways the issue to me is not whether Manning is a traitor. The issue is that this was clearly severely bad judgment on her part, and someone who will not give the firth thought to consequence is not someone you want making important decisions.

I often give the Firth a thought.  He's dreamy.  :awgee:
