hey guys how are you all doing today

True story, I had several nightmares last night and one of them involved me beating up a Nazi.
that sounds like a good dream

I made him cry. But then he left the house, and I was worried he'd come back and kill me because he was so angry and embarrassed, and my dad was there and didn't believe me. He thought I was overreacting. Then I looked out the window and saw the Nazi's car pull up into the driveway with its headlights off, and that's when I woke up.

My brain is fucked, and it hasn't even been a week. :sadcheer:

Be strong. People depend on you.

My dog and idiot cats depend on me. :v: Anyway, thanks, I'm doing okay. For now. If/when they touch student loans, I will probably have a legit meltdown.

I never thought I'd say this but maybe you should get Ty to teach you how to use a gun.

lol, I actually learned how to shoot last month! It was fun. It was mostly his idea, but I was curious, too.

And, really, he's the one who brought me around to the argument that sometimes you just need to punch some motherfuckers.

and get a sweet ass beret

As if I wouldn't already have one.

Also seriously this leftist love affair with satyagraha needs to fucking end already. A protest without the threat of force is just a fucking parade.

Martin Luther King Jr. was peaceful and respectable and asked for things nicely, which is why America responded by saying, "Hm, sir, you have a point. We will definitely work on granting people equal rights" and then everybody shook hands and said job well done and MLK Jr. lived a long, happy life and got to see his children and grandchildren grow up.

This fantasy world people are living in sure is fucking great!

3) Now we know which "liberals" would cave and collaborate with a fascist genocidal regime.
it's weird when they say this "legitimizes" spencer's movement or whatever, like anything can legitimize the movement to exterminate anyone who's not white
It supports their claim that all the high-minded principles advocated for in the 50s against McCarthy - that people should be free to advocate even repugnant views, even views that have killed millions of people - are lies. It legitimizes the view that all those principles were supported because those principles were convenient, and no longer are.

They certainly are free to advocate those views. They're not free from other citizens punching them in the fucking face. If the guy who punched him gets arrested, he should rightfully be charged, but I'm not going to sit here and wring my hands over the punching.

I'm not buying this argument that if only we'd ignore Nazis, they'd go away. That if we don't pay attention to them, they won't grow in ranks and won't be a problem. Maybe that was true fucking 60 years ago, but it sure as fuck isn't true now. People are being radicalized online, and the reach of Nazis is extensive. We can ignore them all we want, but they'll continue to mobilize quietly. And they know that keeping a low profile benefits them because as long as people don't know who they are and how many of them there are, they can keep growing like a fucking cancer unopposed.

And, honestly, if someone seeing a Nazi get punched makes them feel very sympathetic towards the Nazi and more likely to seek out that ideology and become a follower, the problem wasn't the fucking punch but the fact that this person was primed to be a fucking Nazi sympathizer in the first place.

Now imagine that we were talking about some random guy in Iraq running up and punching an ISIS sympathizer in the face on TV. Would there be all this hand-wringing and worry about legitimizing the ISIS guy? About stifling his right to call for a global caliphate and the slaughter of unbelievers? Would we be talking about how the proper response is to write up some blistering think pieces?

The point is that you move on it like a bitch and do as much damage as possible as quickly as you can before the rubes start realizing what horrors they've unleashed.

That tweet about the USDA ARS was true:
Quote
A similar directive has been issued to staffers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's research arm, BuzzFeed News reported Tuesday. The Agricultural Research Service employs 2,000 scientists and postdoctoral researchers. "Starting immediately and until further notice, ARS will not release any public-facing documents," wrote Sharon Drumm, chief of staff for the research service, in a department-wide email that BuzzFeed obtained. The list of prohibited external communication included news releases, photos, fact sheets, news feeds and social media content.

It's a lot simpler than that. They were raised casually racist but then decided that the racists they grew up around were all talk and no action.

p much

Also using casual racism to explain your inadequacies and every other problem in your life and then going straight to the logical conclusion.

This reminds me of a throwaway flippant remark I just saw a family member make on Facebook about "diversity grants" for college. It's all those terrible minorities who get all the breaks.

Reportedly tomorrow.

This would make the Hyde Amendment permanent and would also bar federal funds from going towards an insurance policy that covers abortion.

On the train into the city he had told me that a GOP operative who had been close to Governor George Wallace had invited him to give a talk at the Capitol Hill Club, a storied and influential club for leading Republicans. "It's an amazing opportunity," he said. "It's a real chance to get our point across to the GOP. They know that we represent the real white working class."

If we punch them, then they'll be legitimized! :ohdear:

Quote
"Look at these fools," Heimbach said. "You need force to back up your talk, and do these people have that? No. They need the force of the capitalist state to protect them from us."

Hey, look, it's a Nazi literally saying PLEASE PUNCH ME, it's the only way to stop me.

Quote
Heimbach's contact said that the movement needed money and that the GOP needed the movement, and that today would be the first step in bringing the nationalists and the GOP together: "A few years ago the GOP wouldn't be able to even sit in the same room as you, but things have changed and now we need each other. This is a big day."

Quote
Finally Heimbach came back. He was elated. The meeting had gone well, he said. In a room full of GOP operatives and state legislators he had been introduced as "the next president of the United States." He said that he had made no attempt at hiding his politics or his affiliations, and that no one had seemed to have a problem with it. He said that he'd spoken at length about the white working class, their problems, and how to strengthen the GOP's hold over them. When he finished, he had been given a resounding applause.

Hey, guys, this reminds me of the time that armed Franco goons showed up at my grandmother's house, and her dad answered the door. They asked him if he was for or against the regime, and he said neither. So they got mad and asked him again, and he said neither. So they shot him on the spot.

Anyway, obviously the solution is to invite them in for a cup of tea and talk things out.

Hope you liked my story! :wave:

That was fucking awesome. I'm laughing out loud. I cannot allow myself to get sucked into searching through the remixes and meme stuff so I am counting on you a to bring the best ones here.

Americans looking for information about the Trump administration or White House history in Spanish are coming up empty-handed. For now, at least, it no longer exists.

Just after noon on Friday, WhiteHouse.gov/espanol went dark, with an error message explaining that "the page you're looking for can't be found."

It's okay, guys, don't panic. We're just replacing it with a Russian version. :dogpipe:
