Those two definitely aren't equivalent. SYRIZA is good.

Amazing how so many leftists here are voting for an anti-refugee Stasi party. Sahra Wagenknecht has been targeted and harassed by antifas before.

The leader of Linke is f[inks]ing garbage.

Whatever you think about Wagenknecht,her views are not representative of the party.

And is saying Merkel's refugee policy reckless really the worst thing ever.

Not according to these people:

Disgusting bigoted f[inks]ing trash comparable to Le Pen and AfD. Human filth.

As a whole?  HP.

Compared to where he was before the tempban?  FF.

Case in point, he said this about the Portland train killer, who was not a Christian (though ironically his last name was Christian) and posted rants on Twitter about "monotheism". I'm surprised that you would think he's improved with this blatant anti-Christian bigotry:

Uuuuuuh excuse me I demand you change the title to "Free speech activist kills two on train in Portland"

Shouldn't it be "radical white Christian terrorist kills two on train in Portland"?

Why won't Republicans say "radical white Christian terrorism"?

He's no better than he was pre temp ban.

Uh, claiming the US is equivalent to North Korea and citing a single sheriff as why no American can criticize any country anywhere? It might've made sense directed at an actual supporter of Sheriff Clarke.

Can't vote FF, but he has improved greatly since his temp ban.

If you believe that the US is no better than North Korea, yes he has.

Total garbage. The right wingers who constantly whined about him are actually 100% correct.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Otto Warmbier, US student sent home from North Korea, dies on: June 20, 2017, 11:09:50 pm
Terrible tragedy

Also: I've seen some "woke" keyboard warriors on Twitter screaming about how mourning Otto is only because of his "white privilege," many of the same who gleefully mocked him last year when he was captured because in Asia, "white privilege" doesn't protect you, or something.

I wanted to get off my chest here what an execrable position this is to take after a man was murdered by a criminal regime, and that this flies awfully close to the line of logic that blacks "had it coming" when they are gunned down by the police.

/endrant

Very sad.
Why the hell anyone would want to go to North Korea is beyond me.

Curiosity about a notorious society.

Most American visitors are safe so long as they visit at a time of relative calm and take no action that could be mistaken as a stand against the regime. Many visitors simply can't bring themselves to act apolitically once there.

Relative calm ?
When is there ever "relative clam" in North Korea. It seems that everyday their official government-controlled news talks about nuking the USA, with an accompanying video showing a mushroom explosion over The White House or The Capitol.
Their leader killed his own uncle, for Pete's sake !
How can anyone see this country as calm and safe to visit (vacation) ?
No amount of "curiosity" would take me there.

North Korea is a terrible place, and the horrible direction it has gone since the Korean War should be a lesson for all nations. But it is hard for me to see criticism like the above coming from my fellow Americans and take it as credible when we live in the same nation that actually bombs people on a daily basis, and where Sheriff Clarke is considered for high government positions instead of incarcerated in his own jail awaiting trial.

Perhaps we should pay less attention to the daily hate for people on the far side of the world, and take off the comfortable blinders we wear at home.

David Clarke is sheriff of a single county in the US and thus no American anywhere is ever allowed to criticize any other country. Brilliant logic.

really neither of them is deserving of a permaban

I am a Bernie hack.

No you're not.

Uh, "My King is alive!"

Also I was a delegate for him at the district convention.

That happened back in the day too when J. J. and all these right wingers were being triggered by him and he didn't get many defenders.
16  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Who is more deserving of a permaban? on: June 20, 2017, 08:40:28 am
But of course he's now a respected and beloved poster here and even most mods love him. Roll Eyes

Jfern is respected and beloved? LOL.

He gets hordes of defenders and apologists in threads on him. Everyone loves him because "he's so consistent and principled."

This has literally never happened.

1. Pure ideology.
2. Implementing single-payer would require some heavy-duty logistical heavy lifting in a country this size and with this byzantine a private insurance system, especially since we're not a unitary state. (Note that I still agree that it should be done.)
3. Shouldn't this be in US General or Political Debate?

4. Why are you seriously responding to Greatest I am?

Yes. I don't care if it hurts my party, it's just the right thing for the sake of community representation.

Uh, no it's not. The new state would be an economic basket case and would have no money. Much like upstate NY downstate Illinois relies on metro Chicago to fund it.

Every state relies on its main population center to fund it, there's just an army of morons who insist of always separating ours for the sake of hypotheticals.  Our state without all of Chicagoland is almost as big as yours with the Twin Cities.

...which is an economically vibrant region. So are many places in outstate Minnesota too.

And many of the economically vibrant places downstate wouldn't be in an independent state, let's see how well Champaign does if it's no longer an in state school for people from metro Chicago.

Also haven't you not lived in Illinois since you were four? I'm closer to being a North Dakotan than you are to an Illinoisan.
