I called both sides deplorable. The gun shooting is so obviously despicable that nobody is actually looking at the bigger picture. What is it? The enemy of my enemy is my friend? why is this Antifa mob so untouchable and exempt from scrutiny? Anytime someone questions them people like you jump in with your virtue signalling. Congratulations you despise idiot rednecks,so do I. Can we move on and discuss the situation in a bit more depth other than white supremacy bad, Antifa good? Or have we been media brainwashed so much that we must accept this group as the good guys without question?

What do police do when there's a hostage situation? Do they go in abusing the hostage taker? Do they yell at him and inflame the situation?

They keep calm, they try to negotiate and hopefully exit the situation with minimal harm to all involved. It's a measured approach and based on best outcomes.

Instead we have these young punk attention seeking rouges, there for their own selfish reasons. They don't give a shit about any issues. This time next year they'll move on to the next cool fad and the next young idealists will take their place for their 15 minutes of fame? What did they achieve? They got a young girl killed in the name of "doing what is right"

Give me a break. They've unnecessarily increased tensions. Idiots. All of them.

Where is the evidence that Antifa has done anything wrong? You bitch and complain about them, yet, you've failed to provide any concrete video or evidence that they were engaged in illegal behavior. Prove it or shut the hell up.


Here is the Antifa today in Berkeley. Seems to me that they are doing things that are wrong. Wouldn't you agree?

He had major backing from racists and racist organizations like KKK and neo-Nazis and Fox. All you righties going on about subtle messages in "liberal" speeches and you all missed a huge message in "Make America Great Again." We were asking what that means and got no response. Replace the word "great" with the word "white" and there it is. Not so subtle. If you righties find that offensive, too bad. This is what you wanted. This is what you get.

Voting for Trump is not working to eliminate your racism. It's doing precisely the opposite. It's allowing an environment where racism is acceptable and normal.

"Make America Great Again" = "Make America WHITE Again"

That is what the message means to most Trump voters. Go back to the days when white Christians ruled the land, and minorities knew their place and kept quiet.

MAGA is about making the country great for the middle class again, meaning the middle 60% of the country by income. The highest 20% and lowest 20% should not be running the country. This is a fight over money. The middle class has been the victim of the biggest robbery ever on Earth - tens of trillions of dollars. Today, we tell them their citizenship in the world's most powerful country means nothing. That they can expect nothing anymore - no higher ed, no medical care, no well-paying job, no ability to retire. Just die. That is what we are telling our middle class now. Die. And it angers them. They built this country. There is a lot of data backing up Trump's rhetorical platform, which is why he won. The true stories of the middle class are reflected in the data about real wage growth over time. HRC had no clue about people in the middle 60%, because she considered them irrelevant sheeple. Trump deduced that they can win him the election. He won 85% of counties in the US. Excluding New York and California (which were not in question), Trump won the popular vote by like 3 million. And I did not vote for him. Those voters feel more strongly than I do about this.

Bullsh!t. MAGA is about putting everyone non-white in their place, whether it's blacks, latinos, LGBTQ, non-christians...you name it. MAGA is the expression of white supremacy. None of those people gave a toss about any of the communities who have been fighting for education, medical care, well paying jobs forever.

It's 'kick-out-the-fruit pickers' and replace them with god knows what with a living wage and full benefits--but definitely don't pass any increased minimum wage laws because those are communist. MAGA is white anger materialized with no reasonable politics or economics. It's economics nationalism and populism driven by vengeance and zero consistent strategy--just 'gimme more stuff and make sure it comes at the expense of brown people'. They're tired of black people using their Obama phones to call their buddies at universities and get free college and they want *revenge*. Just seeing pictures of black people and Trump voters lose their mind. Don't kid yourself.

I really can't believe I'm reading something like this on here. This is straight up Daily Stormer content.

"They" (Antifa, BLM, liberal counterprotestors) did NOT get anyone killed.

The blame lies solely, 100 percent with the piece of scum right-winger lowlife who participated in the "unite the right"-rally to "protest the taking down" of a traitor statue and freely express his worthless opinion, and who, last but not least, (probably) voted for Trump.



That is a disgusting deflection of blame and pretty much equivalent to saying Trump is responsible for the Scalise shooting because he got people mad at Republicans. Although this still appears more logical to me.

It's all in your mind. You could certainly take what I said - the middle 60% of the income spectrum - and notice that most people in that group share a pale complexion. That's right. Then you could demonize them for that, insinuating that they are Nazis, which you have. Are they angry, yes, a middle class way of life was stolen from them basically by the rich to ruin their wages.

It's not that different from the economics of the Civil War. Entrenched business interests are addicted to cheap labor. They are infuriated that an elected Republican is standing up for the rights of citizens. Trump lacks the qualities of Lincoln to be sure. But the economic disagreement is the same. The argument over citizen-hood is similar too.

Noteworthy.
For Germany I once noted that a CDU/CSU (conservative right leaning) voter is
nothing more than an NPD ( far right ) voter holding a job.

The interesting thing in the US is that the ( predominantly white ) former middle class feels with the rich
and fight the poorer people ( mostly colored ) the rich have dropped them down to.

With slightly increased cognitive capabilities they should come to the conclusion that they must fight
the rich to regain any standing.

I certainly agree about the cheap labor argument. I would like someone to explain what Trump has proposed that really will help the average citizen, white, black, yellow, brown, any color one can think of. To me, he is all mouth and no substance as are the wealthy cohorts of his. They play the naive like violins, while grubbing more and more wealth for themselves. A few jobs have come back, nothing else has been accomplished. Especially anything that will help the average worker. You know the average worker, the underpaid average worker. The ones who live in the real world. The workers whose jobs now reside everywhere but here. You know those people.. :sarcastic:

Can someone please explain why Confederate flags and statues need to be defended? Those people rebelled against the United States and were, in effect, traitors to the Republic. Why do we have to praise those who betrayed the United States? I get Texas and Utah and even California celebrating their historical figures and events. They were, at one time, their own nations. Each state should be proud of their place in history. But why do we need to celebrate the Confederacy? Owning people? Legally treating an entire race as lower than human?

Answer me this, Flighty:

If what you say is true, and it's based on the 60% middle class, when why are the vast majority of Trump voters white? The middle class comprises people of many ethnic backgrounds, yet we only see white people supporting Trump. Why do you think that may be? :scratchchin:

did you miss all the constant bickering by Trump that minimum wage has to be increased, labor protections to be expended, US workers finally getting their paid vacation and such?

Yeah that must've flown right by. Must be the media's fault. Let me search for those terms in his tweets. Wait, no, came up empty!

A variation of this disingenuous argument has been made here and elsewhere. Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes. End of story. You don't get to exclude California or New York or any other state, because these are the United States. And when all the votes were tallied, Trump lost by around 2.8 million votes.

It's funny, these arguments are usually made by people who hate the "coastal elites," but they sure don't mind being welfare queens, suckling at the teat of those coastal elites, and accepting cash from places like New York and California (and my own state) to prop up their failing states. I'm pretty sure California and New York and other states propping up the southern states would be more than happy to be free of that particular financial arrangement.

Yeah it's quite funny that all those "economic anxiety" voters are also the ones constantly being caught on camera telling various minorities that now that Trump is in charge, they're no longer welcome in this country. It's mind-boggling how anyone can believe that an alleged billionaire who has handsomely profited off of the system in place would actually make meaningful change to that system.

They've made it crystal clear they're sympathetic to nazis and white supremacists, who Trump and the administration have been winking at since day one of the campaign. You don't look at Nazis and white supremacists armed to the tooth, murdering someone with a car, and think "gosh I must find someone else to condemn instead" without signaling your sympathies loud and clear. Unless you believe Steve Scalise was in part guilty for the bullets he ate? Maybe we should condemn both sides there too? These people aren't looking for a job, they're looking for someone to blame. And it's any and every minority they have some bone to pick with, and the administration is goose stepping to their bidding. Immigrants legal and illegal? Out. LGBQT? Banned from the army, and discrimination galore especially Devos' crusade to discriminate children, when she's not making rape great again. Blacks? Mass incarceration 2.0 in the name of "tough on crime" but also profit...also the bogeyman of affirmative action. Muslims? Ban all of 'em. And on and on and on... None of these are about economics for the poor downtrodden hard working (read: WHITE) class.

Surprise! The election wasn't about the middle class. It was about white people getting revenge, at all income levels.

When minorities were fighting for the same exact things, the MAGA crowd told them to get bent--get a better job, get deeper into debt with more education, work harder, move, leave the country, etc. Now that the shoe is on the other foot they're singing from a completely different music sheet and that same advice is suddenly gone from their repertoire--it isn't "get a better job than your minimum wage, food stamp subsidized Walmart job", it's Walmart needs to pay more for me to get out of my recliner and show up to work.

It's economics nationalism and populism driven by vengeance and zero consistent strategy--just 'gimme more stuff and make sure it comes at the expense of brown people'. They're tired of black people using their Obama phones to call their buddies at universities and get free college and they want *revenge*.

Yep. Christians are salivating at the discrimination they can gin up once they can start "not baking cakes" for people they don't like. They're furious that LGBTQ people still exist and can finally 'stick it to the fags'. For Jesus! And they're just warming up.

Answer me this, Flighty:

If what you say is true, and it's based on the 60% middle class, when why are the vast majority of Trump voters white? The middle class comprises people of many ethnic backgrounds, yet we only see white people supporting Trump. Why do you think that may be? :scratchchin:


Hmm, I think a lot of voters of color will not vote for a Republican... so if you're asking where they went, they voted for the other party (with a few exceptions like maybe Cuban Americans, and I heard Chinese Americans). I heard a couple of elder gentlemen at a restaurant last August in U Street DC (the famous hot dog place) arguing the election - they agreed Hillary was, by a small margin the "lesser of 2 evils." This was a couple of Afr American men in DC saying that. She was a known villain to many of her own voters. But I think Trump/Bannon's policy ideas (whatever you think of them) are citizenhood-based not color-based. Some say (as we saw above) it is definitely 100% about race. So, citizenhood is about race, and is racist too maybe. Or, maybe being a US citizen is a real thing worth talking about.

Anyway, the wages for "disadvantaged minorities" (certainly not all minorities) in the US have been doing very poorly too. Trump's cheap labor argument counts strongly for diverse groups of Americans. The rich are trying to avoid paying a good wage to middle class people. Except government workers... very important exception. Because we just print money and pay them. It's not actually coming from rich people's pocketbooks. But private sector workers should be as low paid as possible. That's been our policy for 30 years. Unfortunately, for the misanthropic rich, that policy is not politically sustainable. I would be happy to get a lower return on stocks if it meant the median real wage of US workers went up. It's only money. I don't have the disease that tells me I always need more money. I'd rather see the country do better. A lot of cities are doing worse than they were in the 1970s-80s. And it's NOT because of human capital/talent. Human nature is very stable over decades. The US policy changed in favor of global stockholders over US workers... it was intentional... not a secret.

Trump voters are populist voters. If that draws in the Klan and other fringe groups, then too bad.

Pick you poison.

Us on the other side hold the fringe groups on the Left with as much disdain, and the Left hold the fringe groups on the Right. You're no better.

Trump Won. Get over it.

For a "side" that cares about strict interpretations of the laws so much and what amendments say whenever it suits them, no matter how obfuscated the language might be, you always *very conveniently* forget the First Amendment.

Religion, very explicitly, has no place in laws. WHATSOEVER. You guys need to get over that crap.

And why would that be, asks the man who says "I don't have the disease that tells me I always need more money." The Republican Party has historically enacted policy platforms that are disadvantageous to these people's HUMANITY. While using them as a scapegoat for anything and everything that is "wrong" with the country.

Maybe the Republicans are right and the Democrats take voters of color for granted and make everything about racism. Well you can sure say the same for Republicans--they also take the uneducated white lower middle class for granted and also inflame racial hatred at that level. They also convince white suburban voters that it is only them who are "paying their own way," everyone else is "stealing from them," and inflame economic warfare. American suburbs have leached off of cities for decades and pay cents on the dollar.

Help me out here. "Talking about" being a U.S. citizen to what end? So you can clarify what you "deserve"? So you can get something at someone else's expense in the short-term? Sounds like an entitlement-type approach. I thought you guys were against those. There is no mainstream economic theory that I've seen that says kicking people out of the country is going to create more wealth, quite the opposite. But, hey, I'm sure when you need to go to a doctor, you must choose to go to a voodoo priest instead.

Until the middle class has to pay higher for everything and then where's that going to leave them? That was standard Democratic Party ideology for decades.

Wasn't Trump's campaign song "You Can't Always Get What You Want"?

If you want to see American cities collapse again, let's force millions of people out, and, with that tax revenue and, you know as well as I do, not U.S. government budget. So who do you think will end up paying for it? The fact that you think America will "do better" because of it is nuts. Point to a single example of a long-term protectionist economy that "does better" than the U.S. is doing now, please.

The biggest Confederate flag I've ever seen was actually in Rhode Island. I was more than a bit surprised.

That's going to be "Fixed" after President Trump gets further along in loading up the SC with Originalist Judges, who, will inevitably strike down that perverted and false interpretation of the 1st Amendment: "Separation of Church and State" as incorrectly applying to religion in general, and not to the proper meaning, of assuring the Danbury Baptists that another Christian denomination could be chosen as a litmus test for holding Govt. offices, thereby excluding those of the Baptist denomination. You'll see.

Did anyone ever do the math on how big an imbalance in votes could be and
still have the relevant votes distributed such that the candidate
with the lesser overall number of votes is moved into the office?

I really can't believe I'm reading something like this on here. This is straight up Daily Stormer content.

"They" (Antifa, BLM, liberal counterprotestors) did NOT get anyone killed.

The blame lies solely, 100 percent with the piece of scum right-winger lowlife who participated in the "unite the right"-rally to "protest the taking down" of a traitor statue and freely express his worthless opinion, and who, last but not least, (probably) voted for Trump.



That is a disgusting deflection of blame and pretty much equivalent to saying Trump is responsible for the Scalise shooting because he got people mad at Republicans. Although this still appears more logical to me.


Sorry luges, it may be difficult to stomach, but when youre dealing with rednecks, acting like a redneck ain't the best approach. There was nothing gained by antagonising the situation with their self obsessed counter protest, except for getting a girl killed. Like it or not, that's how I see it.

You didn´t disagree. That means you concur. Especially since your rhetorical question is after all along the same train of thought and you just before blamed people using their right to peacefully protest for the murder of a woman by right wing terrorists, which is again the same line of thought.

Thanks for delving into personal insults, shows the level of discussion we are having here.


That people thinking it is the woman´s fault when she gets raped are disgusting people isn´t an offense, that is an objective fact.
And since you set the bar as deep as it possible can be with your comment, there is simply nothing i could say to get the discussion to a lower level then you already did.

And since you set the bar as deep as it possible can be with your comment, there is simply nothing i could say to get the discussion to a lower level then you already did.

:lol:

My question was to align the situation to a more relevant comparison. Women being raped for how they dress is no comparison.

Leaving your door wide open serves no purpose. Leaving your wallet on your car dash with the door unlocked and window open serves no purpose. You don't do these things because there's no benefit and risk of adverse affect is high.

This is my point. You may feel all warm and gooey inside because you confronted a few white supremacists. Well done to you and your virtue signalling. My point is perhaps that wasn't the best approach for dealing with these people.

But carry on putting words in my mouth trying to make yourself look smart and somehow superior.

Why couldn't antifa have protested 10km down the road? They could have still made their point, and if their numbers are larger, would have made an even bigger statement against the supremacists with the media it would have generated

Going to political ralley´s and marches does not just serve a purpose, that is a right. The rape/murder comparison is 100% valid, aside of murder arguably being worse.

Of course you support a sexual predator, so there is absolutely no surprise in your position.

Times are changing: 70 years ago the USA went to war to defeat the Nazis, now they elect them to run their country.

For a "side" that cares about strict interpretations of the laws so much and what amendments say whenever it suits them, no matter how obfuscated the language might be, you always *very conveniently* forget the First Amendment.

Religion, very explicitly, has no place in laws. WHATSOEVER. You guys need to get over that crap.


That's going to be "Fixed" after President Trump gets further along in loading up the SC with Originalist Judges, who, will inevitably strike down that perverted and false interpretation of the 1st Amendment: "Separation of Church and State" as incorrectly applying to religion in general, and not to the proper meaning, of assuring the Danbury Baptists that another Christian denomination could be chosen as a litmus test for holding Govt. offices, thereby excluding those of the Baptist denomination. You'll see.


Yay! A theocracy to hold people down politically! There are plenty of examples of those having worked well in history, and for the benefit of everyone economically!

You guys are just so far gone.

That's quite a desperate spin you've added to my post.
