DING DING DING. Advocating independents at this point is just forfeiting democratic votes. It's not a good look, and it isn't going to help.
Be a Democrat, or else!

Should make a nice campaign ad in the future.

You're either agreeing with us, or we will attack your livelihood and villainize you!

Yea, I'm not seeing this as nearly as bad as Kanye.

This isn't even on the level of Common talking about "black people need to love whites to end racism" which got a collective "sit the fuck down, Common" response from the black community.

The tragedy of this Chance comment is the timing. In isolation, he's completely right, but within the context of Kanye's fuckery, it looks like he's "defending his homie" or some shit. I feel like, just like JCole, and Jaden, this is another subtweet that is more about the conversation around this Kanye incident, and not a direct response to him, since people seem pretty afraid of confronting him.
There's a lot of empty box space there to articulate a point instead of being vague during a day of maga ejaculations. It's not just the timing.

it's also a two party system, that's not changing and the sides (and who they appoint in victory) couldn't be anymore distinguished from each other.

I agree there should be a third party the problems it would take a shit load of money and time to build that up and as of right now you are either democrat or a republican that actively votes against your people

I just googled "Taylor Swift Swastika" and couldn't find any news, I imagine that image might be fake. I don't understand the message it is trying to get across though.
I think Taylor got it taken down from news sites with her big money, she going straight to get it laser removed, lol.

Lol

The reactions to this have been hilarious. If you see it as good and the evil side of politics, you're the problem.
I wouldn't frame the Dem party as "good" but the Republican party is outright fucking evil. So "meh" and evil. The stances of the Dem party are semantics as long as the GOP are a party of (at best) thinly veiled white nationalism.

And people are starting to see through this narrative that has been pushed by the Democrat party and communists for so many years.

It's actually kind of entertaining and the Democrats might actually have to come up with some kind of party platform that's not "minorities have to vote for us" and "free college and free money for young people"

You can tell a centrist by how their life is absolutely, 100% fine

If you don't want change, you don't care about the people who do

You're right, nothing good will ever happen in the us unless the Democrat party has absolute control.

So I guess I can put you down in the "pretends it's not there" camp then. Good to know.

Who told you this nonsense?

Also LOL at communists. Dad, is that you?

He's right they don't have to be democrats. Women also don't have to vote for Hillary.

The democratic party is pretty lame party to get behind honestly. All talk, no spine, still succumb to the existing wealthy. Except they talk a tiny bit nicer so they have a lot of support from the internet.

FPTP was one of Amercia's biggest mistakes. In a more sensible system you can signal to the Dems that you want them to change without just handing the Republicans power for several cycles in a row via spoiling.

Okay so how can you tell if a rapper is an industry plant? If they come out of nowhere and blow up suddenly? Or if they portray a "mainstream" image that is based around being as acceptable by white audiences as much as possible? And what is the point of being an industry plant? What do they do?

Communists huh?

Also here: read up
The Democrats' primary issue isn't platform, it's messaging. Has been for a while.
Some folks will never stop and talk about individual issues, because the fact that the parties have very different positions on most major political issues makes these guys look like fools when they push the “both sides” meme.

If republicans are fascist white supremacists Nazis then the Dems can be communist fascists, we all can escalate and exaggerate.
modern republicans are closer to fascism than the democrats are to communism

and republicans aren't white supremacists? news to me

Are you really comparing what Chance is saying here to Kanye's Uncle Tomery? Ridiculous.

The Dems have been useless for us black folks. Would love an independent that actually cares about black folks to win.

Show me the forward thinking solutions to current and future concerns that modern (i.e post civil rights/post white evangelicals) Republicans are putting forward.

Show me how what essentially amounts to the status quo of right-wing agendas doesn't circle right back around again to the usual fuckery that has Democrats once again cleaning up the mess. Trump is essentially riding high off of Obama's 8 years of competence, coming in after a Republican disaster.

Show me actual progress, social or otherwise, that's been led by a modern Republican. Hell, show me an actual important Republican who believes in Climate Change.

I could get very deep into the racism, the homophobia, the attacks on the poor and voting rights, but clearly you don't actually give a fuck about that. So, show me something. Anything.

nah because a "communist fascist" likely abstained or voted for some 3rd party loon, where as fascist white supremacists came out of the fucking wood work to support Trump's Republican party.

Your attempt to equivocate the two is a laugh riot, truly.

For reference, communist fascist is an oxymoron (authoritarian =/= fascist). Also, if one were to draw up a list of the top three things an average hypothetical communist hates, it would have to be capitalism, liberals (AKA Democrats AKA capitalists) and other socialists.

Just fold capitalism and liberalism together so spot 3 can be saved for fascism.

But we do love to tear into other socialists.

"but the middle is where you should be! it doesn't matter that one side is literally stupid hitler and the gang and the other side is centrist liberals, the middle is always the correct position!"

I wish the Democrats were communists. Capitalism is racist as fuck.

modern republicans are closer to fascism than the democrats are to communism
Democrats are closer to fascism than they are to even socialism, which, again, I wish Democrats were.

"but the middle is where you should be! it doesn't matter that one side is literally stupid hitler and the gang and the other side is centrist liberals, the middle is always the correct position!"
Who'd want to be in between centrist liberals and conservatives?

Vote Democrat or vote literal evil fucks. Third parties are not viable in a first-past-the-post electoral college system and never will be. If you advocate for independent candidates you're just handing the advantage to the Republicans. It's not how it should be, but it is the reality of the situation.

is ye going to claim he was trolling and doesn't like Trump, but loves America and wants to make it great. then goes on some rant about assumptions or even makes a fire hot song about Trump sucking. The damage is done...but would people forgive that?

edit: and how it was just a hat.

Arent these two allowed to have their own opinion?

That being said Kanye has always been batshit insane, like seriously mentally ill so this is hardly surprising.
