  1. True, but given the number of women who identify as pro life, I'm not sure the sex of the politician is what's important, but rather the politicians views on abortion.
  2. Women are voting for these men, no? Jumped the gun a bit. Stull as much as I dislike how the system works, these people are voted in and largely by women. Not sure that's the same as men imposing their will on women who have no say.
  3. At least we can agree on one thing - the alt right, white supremacists and nazis are all bad. No doubt that if there are racists, particularly in leadership positions, at turning point USA, they ought to be outed. And if they're not, then turning point will deserve whatever racist tag they get. You must denounce that crap, or one can assume correctly that you are complicit. I would take it one step further - if turning point was a several decades old organization, and they had a history of white supremacists or other idealogical radicals among their ranks, especially in leadership positions, and they didn't disavow or clean it up, I'd question anyone who would join such a group. This standard, for me, would also apply to any idealogical, political or religious organization - left, right, Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, whatever.
  4. the guy from the tweet, vic berger, is a guy who had accused mcginnis of threatening him. pool reached out to both of them for comment and says that berger blocked him instead of responding. pool discusses it in a video i can link you to if you like. after that, it looks like berger started going after pool. why berger didnt respond, i have no idea. i had never heard of him until you posted that. he's accusing pool of operating in bad faith and a far right propagandist, presumably because he was in a picture with some far right trolls. the problem i have with that is two fold. first, pool is a journalist. he made his name by talking to people and recording events like occupy wall street. he talks to everyone a far as i can tell. what would be telling is what he actually thinks of the far right, and you can find out easily. if he was sympathetic to these people, or if he agreed with them, then he would be guilty of being what you and berger are accusing him off. being that he's a quarter korean, he wouldn't fit in very well with those people. what pool does do is defend principle. he's a pretty hard core free speech guy and so he defends the rights of some of these far right 'loons', as he calls them, to speak. when mcginnis got banned, he was critical of mcginnis. watch the video on the topic and you'll hear it yourself. defending what people are saying as opposed to defending their right to say it are very different things. pool is a media critic who criticizes the way media covers stories- left, right, everybody. he goes through all of the news outlets and breaks down how they are reporting various events. this is great, imo. if someone is quoting a source, whether its its going down, which is far left, or breitbart, which far right, it's helpful to know if there is a bias there, if you don't already know, and helpful to know if they have a reliable track record. he promotes media fact checking websites and recognizes how the media sacrifices quality for clicks, and he is exactly right about that. i think you've likely made up your mind about pool, so i don't expect you to agree, so i'll say this- if pool is an undercover quarter asian white supremacist, if you can find him espousing white supremacist ideas, then i will absolutely say i'm wrong. he's got thousands of hours of videos of him talking so it shouldn't be hard to find that. where we will agree is that white nationalists are scumbags, and i have no problem with anyone- its going down, or anyone else- pointing them out. i think we're done with tim pool, unless you have anything to show me about him (and if you do, PM me- i wouldn't support an actual white nationalist). when you said i was islamophobic regarding the MSA, was the post i quoted above the one you were talking about? if so, what part of that did you have a problem with?
  5. how is pool an alt right sympathizer? there are very, very few people that I am comfortable 'going to bat for' in terms of integrity and character, and he is one. he is not close to alt right. I know very little about molyneux. the only thing I recall ever posting about him is that he did a debate with sam sede- I cant find anything in a search. he may very well be a racist, I just don't know because I don't listen to him. I literally have no opinion one way or another. here's my post about the msa- I did a very quick search about this. Apparently he was VP of a chapter of the Muslim student association, which has been accused of ties with the Muslim brotherhood, and called a "Radicalization incubator" by the NYPD. I assume the last part is true, and it appears that people in the MSA have been found to be terrorist sympathizers, including MSA’s national president from 1983, Abdurrahman Alamoudi. I question sources and basically don't trust any when it comes to some issues, so I don't know what's accurate or not, but it's something to look into. (don't know why font got big - not intentional.- ok fixed) Edited June 6, 2018 by grego is this what you are referring to? I don't see any others about the msa.
  6. to the point of tim pool and its going down, to be clear- are you saying they are correct in calling him an alt right troll? if so, we are ****ed.
  7. 'It's going down' is a good example of a group that can provide some good nuggets of info, but get stuff wrong. It's a group that seems to hold a worldview that everything is racist and everyone who is right of Bernie is alt right. For instance, they think Tim Pool is alt right. That's crazy.
  8. While I agree with the basic premise, your solution sounds a bit too authoritarian.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    you moved the goal posts. this is what you said first- you should have said you didn't want to serve in the military to begin with rather than the more understandable 'put your life on the line' reason. first of all, i think the military is an excellent option for getting money to go to college. but i think we'd both agree that college is too expensive to begin with. i'll go back to the mid nineties when i was at maryland. i can't recall what the exact tuition was, but almost all of my classes were taught by TA's. sorry, but wtf is that? i would love to see an accounting of where the money goes, but that's another story. i'm not an expert on college options, but i can speak from my experience on this. i do currently take classes at UMUC and for the first year, i think i paid about $300 for several thousand dollars worth of classes. when my son get to college, he'll have even more options for grants as his mom is native american, hispanic, and black. while there are options, and many more than i am personally familiar with, i don't think 'military or bust' has to be the only option. what kind of work would you be willing to do to help pay, or pay completely for college?
