1  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: How Brazilís Libertarian Movement Helped Bring Down a President on: Today at 03:14:42 pm
I don't really know anything about the brazilian libertarian movement (and honestly, I don't want to know) but I sadly know some libertarians from chile (and visited some spanish-speaking libertarian pages) and most of them are insufferable rich boys (like Axel Kaiser) but are interest in politics but most of them are weird boys, from middle class neighbourhoods who love anime, play a lot of video-games, are very misanthropic and they think they are experts on economy because they took Economy  101. Seeing their pages on facebook is an act of sacrifice, they love to attack everything (specially student leaders and feminists) and think is stupid to suggest that the state can solve some things and all people are lazy who like to complaint.

The good news there are not many (and are a laughingstock) but are very noisy and from RodPresident I'm relief that in Brazil is the same.

Not even just South America - you're describing all libertarians the world over!

Ugh. I thought Corbyn was at least above this kind of dishonesty. At this point I'll be heartbroken if he still somehow wins.

Of all the reasons to be heartbroken about a candidate's dishonesty, "staging a campaign video to argue for more public transit spending" is all things considered pretty mild, no?

Wouldn't I have to have been racist in the first place to do that? Lampooning racially divisive SJW dogma is not racist. I have only been "racist" if you believe the nonsensical idea that not doing whatever the left says is therefore support of the status quo which is a super duper evil heterosexist white supremacist patriarchy system, including the constitution, the courts and justice system, capitalism, and an individualistic view on rights. These things are undeniably compatible with a race neutral system and supporting them =/= supporting the police lynching black people.

I'm no fan of cops. Believe it or not I don't even think cops should go around murdering uncooperative but otherwise non-threatening black citizens like you seem to be insinuating. 60% of deaths caused by the cops are not black though. I'm not saying that the difference between % of the population and % of deaths for black people  doesn't matter, or that race can never be a factor in some killings. But clearly more than half of police killings do not happen because the victim is black. It's really hard to take some of these anti-police violence activists seriously, when instead of focusing on the circumstances of a police killing and using the most egregious examples to win support, they instead just look at the race of victim and ignore everything else. Sometimes the person who was shot is not sympathetic. Trying to argue otherwise solely on the weight of SJW dogma ("It wasn't Trayvon Martin and Michael Browns fault they attacked people. Its the systems fault because straight white cis-males wrote laws requiring guilt beyond a reasonable doubt") is bogus.

Thank you for providing me an opportunity to rant about this. I'm becoming increasingly annoyed at how racialist some of the lefties are becoming. Apparently its a micro-aggression to tell others that race is fake (which it is) because it diminishes the important cultural identity some minorities might have related to their heritage. Meanwhile, its perfectly OK to diminish these important cultural identities by reducing them all into "peoples of colour", since Samoan fishermen, Arab housewives, Bolivian coca farmers, Seal,  Marco Rubio, and North Korean military officers all totally share a for real common identity. The totally shared experience of not being one of those people. Those people are responsible for all of society's problems you know.

I would like to personally thank you for so clearly and convincingly demonstrating your unwavering ignorance of the topic at hand and your inability to consider alternative points of view. Had you not done so I would have most likely wasted several hours in a futile attempt to highlight every single incorrect assumption and false statement you have made.

Thanks Smiley

No, it just isn't RevLeft.

Remember folks, anything that isn't ripped straight from Democratic Underground is "le literally Stormfront".

yeah I don't know what either of those things are guys but I do know racism when I see it

of course the cop in this instance had a right to self defense. that doesn't let you people get away with making objectively terrible claims like "durrrr BLM wants cops to be killed" or "hurrrr systemic racism isn't a problem and blah blah blah I'm an offensive moron". You don't get to sweep countless victims of police brutality and societal bigotry under the rug just because some BLM activists are saying stupid things and you feel like building a strawman out of it

I'm just doing my part and speaking up for the silent majority so y'alls vicious ignorance isn't allowed to go unquestioned and spread like cancer

Which of the 2 Begums does he support, Zia or Hasina?

"Neither obviously"

If he could punch any living person in the world, famous or not, without legal repercussions, who would he deck?

Rather than punching one living person, Xahar would prefer to punch a large number of living kittens and babies

Will Aliya win a medal in the all-around?

Xahar thinks so, despite her underwhelming performance on beam. Even though Mustafina's floor isn't good Steingruber can't catch her with her bars routine

BLM wants cops to be killed. Anyone who thinks BLM is a mainstream movement is joking themselves. I thought better of them.

Something something systemic racism something something trayvon martin something something straight white men.

I guess you neglected to read pages 28-33 of the document, which delineates that housing for the military is at the Eskan Village base.

1. Eskan Village is literally just a civilian residential compund that was originally built to house Bedouin tribesmen
2. The property is owned by the Saudi government anyway
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: That didn't take long... Trump leaks top-secret intel on: July 30, 2016, 02:25:01 am

Trump leaking classified information isn't hackery, it's treasonous. There's usually a very good reason why some information is classified and he's being a dumbass for saying something like that.
What part of the information allegedly "leaked" by Trump is classified?

There IS a US base in Saudi Arabia. It's not top secret. If it were, I wouldn't have been able to pull up a TRAINING MANUAL from the MILITARY.


Further, I am sure there's got to be a lease for the base and evidence of payments in the PUBLIC RECORD. Why? This is not a clandestine base. It's openly operated by the military to primarily train the Saudis and as a staging ground and coordination point of the Patriot Missiles defending Saudi Arabia. I doubt what we pay Saudi Arabia on the land is classified. As such, it's probably a line item in the DOD budget somewhere.

This kind of hackery is dangerous.

Protip: you should read your sources before actually using them

The US Military Training Mission isn't a base, it's a program operated by the US military at several Saudi military bases and facilities. The US doesn't pay the Saudis to run the mission
