    Tucker Carlson is openly defending a 17 year old murdering protesters, I don't think people are aware of how bad things will be in November.Maw

    I'm waiting but I don't foresee things getting better before they get worse.

    Such a long thread. Damned if I'll read it all.

    The comparisons with Hitler and Mussolini have become tiresome. Besides, Mussolini actually read books, and even wrote a novel.

    But has anyone noted the remarkable resemblance to Sinclair Lewis' Senator Windrip?

    Or, even more striking, to Kaiser Bill, as described by Thomas Nipperdey?

    "... hasty, restless, unable to relax, without any deeper level of seriousness, without any desire for hard work or drive to see things through to the end, without any sense of sobriety, for balance and boundaries, or even for reality and real problems, uncontrollable and scarcely capable of learning from experience, desperate for applause and success, romantic, sentimental and theatrical, unsure and arrogant, with an immeasurably exaggerated self-confidence and desire to show off..."

    So the entire content of the RNC was: Trump Is The Best. No policy, no ideas, no content other than fear-mongering and a cavalcade of lies and delusions. A bunch of losers saying how great Trump is, and how terrible Biden is. That was the entire show, the whole enchilada. :angry:

    //ps// I'm sure the producers of the original Planet of the Apes had premonitions of both jnr Trumps.//

    Yep, definitely. I idly wonder if “Covid Never Happened” how their spin would have been different. Probably much more positive: “the Economy is great! I fixed NAFTA! I stopped all wars and drained the swamp!” (Balloons fall, flags wave, the Chump die-nasty poses for the royal photo.)

    But Covid (and the BLM protests) happened, and cut through the administration like a hot knife through butter. Every weakness was exposed. The mask dropped. The totalitarian face is seen. Chump is sweating armor-piercing bullets.

    Well... I heard on talk radio (the Lush Rimbaud show, so you know it MUST be true)... that there’s a giant 30 foot tall Black Chinese Commie living in Mexico right now! He is impervious to police brutality and is amassing followers to bring down the great USA out of pure spite, jealousy, and ignorance. Then they will rule over the smoking ashes. That’s why the wall must be built! At least 50 feet high so he can’t jump over it and terrorize the good people and patriots of Texas. A moat with Great White sharks (how’s that for symbolism?) on the Mexico side. A parade of gun and flag waving True Patriots on our side. (Canada- you’re next, ya pinko potheads!)

    (Dang, it is difficult to parody the garbage spewing from the Righteous Wing. It’s like trying to go faster than the speed of light, or attempting to do the limbo underneath a brick wall. :grimace: )

    It's notable because someone in Gaffigan's position doesn't lightly mess with their branding and potentially alienate a segment of their audience. On the other hand, maybe he's ready to go in another direction and is like fuckit.

    Nice try, but the couple "harassed by unhinged protesters" weren't being threatened by any mob, they were being shouted at by a girl holding up a cell-phone.

    So, total snowflakes, having their fee-fees hurt by naughty words. Yet another amusing instance of rightwing hypocrisy (see also: rightwingers- including/especially Little Donnie Dotard himself- "cancelling" companies, professors, etc for wearing anti-Trump shirts, criticizing Trump, criticizing Israeli settlement/apartheid policies, etc... while crying about "cancel culture" out the other side of their mouth- doh!).

    Its always projection and hypocrisy with these clowns, they rarely even attempt to hide the double standard, just outright demand to play by different rules. And so it is here.

    It’s called harassment and you blame the victims. I’m sure you do so without hypocrisy.
  • Enai De A Lukal

    Did I "blame the victims"? Not at all. I didn't blame the couple in the video: I said nothing that even implied as much. I just pointed out the usual double-standard, the amusing and persistent hypocrisy of rightwingers delight at accusing other people (i.e. on the left) of being "snowflakes" who get "triggered" and need their "safe spaces"... but then turn around and throw a crybaby tantrum when someone says some naughty words to them. As with poor Dotard himself, you can dish it out, but not take it (not without melting down at any rate). And similarly with free speech and "cancel-culture" (and probably plenty of other things besides): for all your whining, you're as guilty as anyone else and in many cases quite a bit more so.

    I mean, I understand that you don't put any stock in things like basic logical consistency, but it would help your credibility if you would at least attempt to disguise the double-standard.

    Though there might be right-wing mobs out there swarming and harassing people, I am personally not aware of any who suggest or condone doing so, especially not Trump and certainly not myself. So your claims of hypocrisy are nonsense.

    Trumptards go out and kill protesters and then whine about protesters yelling "Breonna Taylor" in Rand Paul's face. So there we have it, protests are threatening to them.

    There was no mob in the video. Just a girl saying mean words. And you're here crying about "intimidation by a mob" and "harassment" and "my poor bum it hurts so much". You've proven my point: rightwingers can dish it out, but can't take it without throwing a tantrum and crying victim.
