    The Impeachment Thread

    "You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!" "It is a terrible thing that you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!" This is dumb even by Republican standards.
  2. You can drive through the rural portions of any part of this country and find countless ****buckets displaying the confederate flag.
  3. I have my own criticisms of Pete but sometimes the progressive wing is just a parody of itself.
  4. She's not running for re-election in Hawaii right? Tulsi is going to milk a ton of money from right wing media outlets post-retirement.

    I don’t think the Boris-Trump comparisons are accurate. Boris Johnson is a masterful liar but he’s not an inept buffoon like Trump. Boris is a shapeshifter. He was a moderate mayor of a cosmopolitan London, then saw a lane for right wing populism through anti-EU sentiments and has basically lied his way into power by promising simplistic nonsense. This time around he swept Labour partly by adopting a fair amount of leftist economic ideas and breaking from his parties history of austerity and cuts to social services. So he ended up winning a lot of working class left voters who bought into the lies of Brexit. Despite anti-globalist sentiment, the world is actually pivoting towards greater internationalism. Support for the EU has gone up significantly throughout Europe after seeing the Brexit process. And while it isn’t desirable, China’s growing international presence is globalism in action as well. This is probably the most consequential change in the world order. Trump’s completely inept “nationalist” agenda hasn’t fought back against globalism, it’s made our platform smaller and it’s increased the influence and spread of Chinese totalitarianism.
  7. What a puff piece on a stupidly irresponsible, fraudulent person.
  8. Seems like he’s punishing people for voting him out of office at this point.

    The Impeachment Thread

    Social and economic sorting will take its natural course. If you are well adapted to a socially modern and globalized world, you likely have nothing to worry about. The GOP would be far more destructive if they had cultural support in major metro areas. You see this with right wing nationalism in countries like India, where the urban And cultural centers are the breeding grounds of bigotry. But here, the GOP derives it’s power from a decentralized network of disconnected rural regions, which means they get to do all of their bad economic policies but can’t really dictate and control the social norms and trends of the population.

    You have liberal governments recently elected in most Western European countries. Right wing nationalism is unfortunately a failed ideology that keeps coming back from the dustbin of history, and it typically ends with the same disastrous results. Any time there is major disruption, some people adapt and the others latch on to tribal instincts of self-preservation. Typically doesn’t end well for them.

    The absolute funniest thing about “Trump and Giuliani the corruption fighters” skit is that one of the guys they were getting bogus conspiracies from is a Ukranian oligarch hiding in Austria to prevent US extradition for charges of corruption. We are truly living in the dumbest era in American history.

    Election 2020 The Non Presidential Edition

    Bernie endorses a raging misogynist for Katie Hill’s former seat, which she lost after being on receiving end of misogyny and revenge porn. All because Cenk uses his media platform to endorse Bernie and his ideas. Guy doesn’t even live in CA-25.

    The Brexit Thread

    Just an amazing display of political and economic suicide over a three year period by both conservatives and Labour. No one wins in this. This is only the beginning of what will be a very bad decade, in which Scotland and Northern Ireland will undergo massive internal conflict, and will almost certainly vote for secession.

    The Brexit Thread

    UK election taking place today. Still probably headed for a conservative majority.
  15. A pedophile ran for Senate in Alabama and received the full backing of the GOP. The President is on record saying that he enjoyed visiting the dressing room of teenage beauty contests to see underage girls naked. Pedophiles have a very special place in the new GOP, along with other types of bottom feeding scum.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Don’t think anyone actually cares about “God” or the worlds most popular fairy tale book. It has been abundantly clear for several years that there’s a group of people unable to cope with a rapidly modernizing world and their chosen fairy tales are more of a coping mechanism, rather than steadfast beliefs. It’s the only social construct that allows you to absolve yourself of your own stupidity and bigotry.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Garbage people are garbage but in a way, there is a really great form of social self-sorting taking place. No decent person can look at this and continue supporting it. Yet those who continue to support this mountain of human trash are there for everyone to recognize as just failed people.

    The Impeachment Thread

    Impeachment hurts Dems is a bogus argument when ruby red states just elected Democratic governors. Part of Trump’s mystique is that he’s a monumentally stupid person but he somehow has wealth and power, so people assume that he’s some kind of hard to figure out genius. When in reality, he’s a reflection of decades of intellectual decline in the US.
