I was born in very late 1983 and I'm sure as hell not Gen X. I say if you were born during Reagan's presidency you're a millennial.

Generic platitudes about muh commies are now the height of hindsight, according to the still hilariously-named BRTD. Roll Eyes

There's two things that made me completely turn against communism:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?action=profile;u=6269;sa=showPosts

And of course a realization that if there was any value to Marxism whatsoever, then why does no one except for edgy teenagers and college kids support it today?

If there was any value to hipster Christianity whatsoever, then why does no one except for hipsters practice it?

My lead pastor is a 45-year old father of two who lives in Edina.

So, Atlas posters determines yout outlook?

Advocates of an ideology saying utterly horrifying things do, yes. On Atlas and elsewhere.

No, just no

communism sounds nice in theory...fascism doesn't.

Plenty of things about fascism sound great in theory. Societal order and cohesion, scientific advancement with unified goals, lack of political gridlock and dysfunction, high levels of societal efficiency, business interests made to serve the common good, high levels of communal care for the poor, very little unemployment, etc.

The bad parts of fascism come about in the means... just like in communism.

How is this any worse than saying communism sounds great in theory?

It doesn't. They're both garbage ideologies with zero value that need to be completely annihilated.

The stuff he's said about artificial intelligence and simulated reality is insane. He honestly reminds me of a comic book or sci-fi movie villain.

Also jfern if you had any reading comprehension you'd see that "this guy" who I referred to in that post was Snowden, not Assange. So that post is flat out calling Assange an attention whore prick, not supporting him. I fail to see your point.

Assange is almost powerless now

No he's not. Wikileaks is still spreading lies about opponents of Trump, trying to defend Flynn and also orchestrating a smear campaign against Merkel (and obviously NOT for the benefit of her left wing opponents, but for Putin obviously.)

If you read Wikileaks press releases ranting about "globalism" and all that jazz, it's obvious Assange's ultimate goal is to destroy all global cooperation and trade and reduce it to some 19th century patchwork of mercantalist states and nationalist oppressors taking over. Destroy the EU, destroy NATO, etc., and then let Putin sweep in to rule the scraps.

That's a rant, you didn't answer how he holds any significant amount of power since the election

Did you even read what I wrote?

Yes, and the tweet in question shows that Wikileaks is stockpiling a database of information to threaten and bully any critics of them and threaten doxxing.

In this case it's self defense. Julian Assange seeks to destroy liberalism and spread alt right ideologies and authoritarianism across the globe.

Assange is an attention whore prick, but I fail to see anything wrong with what this guy or Manning did ("they have some douchey admirers" is not something that they did wrong.)

Of course you didn't think he was so bad before he published the leaked Podesta e-mails. Your entire ideology must be based upon those. Sad!

It's a pro-Trump hack right wing organization:

If Santander really did post what has been implied here that he did... um... then why hasn't he been banned? Honestly a lot of people have been kicked off this forum for a lot less. Or is it really true that popularity matters massively? It would be very disappointing if that were actually true.

It also implies Santander is popular.

And people wonder why "Nice guy, FF Smiley" sentiment is mocked.

Also the "Wikileaks Task Force" has openly admitted on Twitter that they are establishing a database of information to allow them to dox anyone who opposes them.

They didn't exactly "rig" the election. Spreading lies about communist leaders isn't the same thing as what Robert Mugabe does. Actually it's pretty par for the course for campaigns. And complaining about funding DC is kind of moot when as Al noted all the funding the Soviet Union gave the communists.

Honestly I can't be bothered by spreading lies and rumors about communist leaders when they were, oh you know, SUPPORTERS OF STALIN. Its amazing the people couldn't vote against them on that basis alone and had to have some lies sent, but hey whatever. You always have the moral high ground against the part of gulags and the NKVD.

I'm actually surprised by Tony here, who has never been too fond of communists.

How many votes are needed to override a veto in Kansas? Because this got less than 2/3.

If this guy posted anywhere on the Internet saying the stuff that he actually believes, he'd be considered a troll. Oh and he's basically a con artist too.
115  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton won non-evangelical white voters 49%-43% on: February 16, 2017, 11:50:03 pm
Interesting though that while the group of white evangelicals is shrinking, while they are becoming a stronger and more active voting bloc.

White Evangelicals realize that they are a minority group under fire from the left and vote accordingly.

The anti-Evangelical bias of the Democratic Party drove me to vote straight Republican, and I've voted mostly for Democrats from 2006 to 2014.  This bias is now so out in the open that I find it hard to think about voting for a Democrat again (although I probably will).  I'm a Kerry 2004, Obama 2012, Bill Clinton, Dukakis, and Mondale voter.  Think about that for a minute.

LOL. You need to meet me and the evangelicals I know.

BRTD, I'm interested to know what about Greece, if not its historical, political, cultural, and economic circumstances, you think leads to these good results for extremist parties.

The point isn't so much those, but the fact you'd have to be pretty horrible to support such a party regardless of any circumstances.

Did the US have more than a tenth of the population being a Nazi or Stalinist in 2008?

He deserves life. In ADX Florence. With absolutely no visitation rights. Aka he'll never see his wife or family ever again.
