The idea that Chelsea Clinton -- who literally wanted Ilhan to be more precise with her language (and someone who is a converted Jew) has rhetoric that somehow inspired the mass shooting is... weak.

Being a Clinton means you just have to be used to being everyones punching bag. Its just her and Hillary's lot in life.

People really, really hate the Clintons. Left and Right alike. That's what decades of taught hatred does.

It's incredibly out of pocket.

I know i'm a bit late to this but Pewdiepie can just rot in hell, the white supremacist-enabling cretin.
2. Should I be embarrassed that I had to look that song up? It's before my time unfortunately. Sk8ter Boi, on the other hand, came out while I was in high school.... and plus someone here was saying Trump was gonna call Beto a "skater boy."
Not really; it's one of Neil's best songs but it doesn't get the play that "Rocking in the Free World" or "Heart of Gold"; even its predecessor, Alabama seems to get more attention, if only for it inspiring "Sweet Home Alabama".

I also find it weak that they used to the video on twitter to share their venmo and ask for support.

They of course deleted it since they got ratioed for trying to use a tragedy to enrich themselves.

This maddow show...trump admin tracked individual girls' pregnancies of asylum seekers and detainees, including how far along and whether it was consensual, assault, etc. And whether abortion was requested.
I have yet to read about this, but I'll remind you these are the people who didn't think to track child separations

It's led by the one guy who was the anti-abortion crusader that Trump put in charge of this. The court blocked him from doing this after a few months, but he kept going for several months after the court order.

Part of me feels like its a bit of a conflict of interest for a candidate in the 2020 election to be signing this kind of legislature even if its something I fundamentally agree with

To be fair to him, it was voted on by the legislature. He could've vetoed it but that seems a bit silly. So it was either sign it, or just ignore it till it's the law, and he might as well sign it, if it's going to be a law anyways. Plus, he probably won't even carry Washington in the primary.

And yet, people claim it's Hillary fans that can't get over 2016.
I find it hard to believe even a die-hard berniebro would be so ghoulish as to wear his campaign gear to a vigil for a day old massacre just to accost political enemies in a way that seems to accomplish nothing but fostering further division.

But I suppose given what's just happened, an expectation of basic human decency couldn't be more unreasonable. Fuck this guy and everything he represents.

Never even thought about that aspect. Wearing campaign gear to vigil is just beyond weird.

I dunno, I guess the alternative is to assume either Chelsea lied, or the person reporting it did.

Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just posting this so people can watch the video, if they want to:

I had no doubt about the reporting, and I didn't mean to imply any hostility to your message. It's just wearying trying to figure out the authentically disturbed Bernie fans from the trolls and bad actors. At least the friend seemed to realize the outburst was an incredibly bad look and tried to take it down.

I'm sorry but Chelsea didn't deserve that. I don't always agree with Hillary Clinton but the shit she and her daughter have to put up with always makes me sympathetic to them.

I don't. This is what the originals did.

https://www.npr.org/2016/04/09/473398688/sanders-supporter-creates-superdelegate-hit-list-superdelegates-not-amused

But this hasn't stopped Sanders' enthusiastic supporters from taking matters into their own hands. This week, a Sanders fan named Spencer Thayer created the "Superdelegate Hit List," a website to compile and share the contact information of superdelegates, so they can be persuaded. It is not affiliated with the Sanders campaign, but a campaign spokesman didn't respond to multiple requests for comment.



"The superdelegate system is rigged to protect establishment politicians and shut down populism," Thayer said. "Superdelegates, by their very nature, diminish the value of the vote by giving an elite constituency of representatives, party leaders, and even lobbyists extra power. The Superdelegate List exists to help voters challenge this undemocratic system. Contacting our elected representatives and party leaders and holding them to account is an American tradition. This is the only way to keep the voter base from being patronized or ignored."

Superdelegates have been hearing from Sanders supporters for months — and it's not always pleasant. Akilah Ross Ensley is with the Young Democrats of America, and she's a superdelegate who plans to support Clinton. She has to check her professional Facebook page several times a day to deal with all the messages and posts.

He is amazing. He'll be the only male primary candidate that I am going to donate any money to.

I'll have to brainstorm some ways to get him to be more popular among my social circle.
I'm actually working on a mobile political game. I'd really like to add Mayor Booty as one of the featured candidates to help give him some exposure but my budget is already getting thin as it is and there's just too many Dem candidates. He needs to at least crack 1-2% in the polls for me to justify the expense.

I know you didn't. I just thought if we're going to talk about it, we should look at the video, and decide for ourselves if the reporting is accurate. It wasn't meant to be a "See, I was right" thing. :)

Yup, Joaquin's the good one so this is a good get.



GOP's going to drop-kick the Trumps so fast if he loses next year. 72 hours after the election is called he'll be un-personed on Fox News. He doesn't have the real money that would be needed to effectively take over the GOP.

The problem is that Trump exposed where the base is, and so when the plutocrat overlords try to move the GOP on into a post-Trump age it's going to be a hard sell. The base isn't going to want to go back to Romneyism and a lack of enthusiasm will tell.
The problem is if Trump loses, he's going to spend the next four years on Twitter keeping the crazies incensed, and I can totally see Donny Jr. bearing a field of Nikki Haley, Tom Cotton, Ben Sasse, and whaever other "reasonable" Republican's run in 2024.

*reads the thread about Clinton being accosted by the student* wow, that's a lot of....fuck it, it's a lot of anti-semitism. And hatred for Chelsea clinton, which I'm confused by. I guess it's to be expected by people who seem fueled by hatred.

If Buttigieg wins, the pendulum is going to swing back so hard we'll elect a Silent Generation KKK grand wizard in 2028.

Nine years from now and the demographic is going to shift a lot because of angry old white people dying and more new citizens and younger voters. I'm not worried so much about a giant swing in 2028 as I am in us making it there.

Angry old whites will still be a force in Florida and the rust belt. The EC gives them a shitload more representation than those morons deserve.

A lot of people have been brainwashed to think the Clinton’s are evil.

So of course they think a Sanders supporter attacking a pregnant women is a’ok.

Actually, Twitter can ban him after his term in office is over. They cannot now because his tweets are, unfortunately, official White House statements.

Yes, they can.

A private platform has no legal obligation to host official White House statements. They choose to allow them, just as news networks voluntarily cover his press conferences.

He's old as dirt and fat as shit; the problem might take care of itself by 2024.
