I assumed it was generally understood that Classic Conservative was banned because he was a 12-year-old Nazi twerp who everyone hated, and that this was a good reason.

There are Eunuchs. They are a third gender.

Atlas posters don't count as their own gender

The basic issue of the last ConCon was that it was populated for the most part by idiots. I would suggest not making that mistake again.

Who is charge here? What is going on? Has the Department of Federal Elections become some kind of perverted post-modern charade? This is a national disgrace. 

Hear hear comrade. The President must fire "Peebs" immediately. At least Teddy would actually post results in between breaks from reality.

This is a useful thread for identifying the vile morons who sagely declare that fascism is preferable to a guy who worked for a bank or whatever.

Let's not pretend like the future of France under FBM is going to be some shining beacon for Europe or something. It's going to be a disaster, and you can count on Panzergirl to be there to reap the benefits in 2022. There is no surest way to encourage the rise of fascism than keeping on with nice technocratic centrist Smiley Smiley Smiley policies.

Seems like the surest way to encourage the rise of fascism would be to elect a fascist as President of France actually

And if she's a disaster and can't fully turn the media in her favor in any sort of way [given the response to her "stepping down" as FN Leader, it doesn't seem she could pull it off], that's more ammo to discrediting her movement.

Same way Hillary's loss was an absolute gift to downballot Democrats who would've been flooded out for sure in 2018.



Predictably, the dumbest take.

Macron is the best option of these and I would vote for him in the first round. Obviously would vote for virtually anyone over Panzergirl, which is what matters really.

I can't help but perceive an exploitative fetishization of black/racial minority culture by the same "educated" white liberals who unironically use the term "white trash."



Huh

"The State giveth" is a bizarre response to whatever NSV is on about but we are all by now familiar with macho bluster about 'parasites' and guillotines etc from forum leftists.

It is pretty funny how the various narratives being spun about the mysterious Midwest whites is very similar to competing colonial depictions of natives. Are they a vast tribe of aggressive unreasonable non-woke types who should be feared and despised? Are they a dying, noble breed more in touch than the effete observer? Do they merely need to be tamed and introduced to microbreweries and coding lessons so they can be brought into the brave world if the future?

The Ohio factory worker is the noble savage of American journalism.

Good to see some pushback against the bizarre media fellation of Trump voters because they once drove a truck.

Yes, clearly the most serious problem with the mainstream media these days is that they pay too much attention and are too sympathetic to economically disadvantaged groups. That explains everything!

Airhead journalists are weekly dispatched in their millions to empty diners in Michigan or whatever to ask fat guys in MAGA hats if they still like Trump and then return to write fawning pieces about how this noble working man thinks lynching is good. This genre did not exist before November 8th and does not exist for any other demographic. Not sure where you got the rest of your wild extrapolation from but I understand the urge to sermonise.

"The urge to sermonize" tends to be a byproduct of having meaningful political views and at least generically caring about the deleterious impact that the smugness of the socio-political group I happen to be a part of ends up having on the goals said group is supposed to be championing. You could try that sometimes.

I think the premise of the article is stupid 'voting against their own interests!' nonsense - for all its veneer of elitism etc. it's actually a boilerplate "maybe Trump will make the sheeple wake up!" piece. But I don't see it as any more embarrassing than the plethora of paeans to 'economic anxiety' published hourly.

I think we tend to overrate the impact of a vague sense of being condescended to - but is there anything more condescending than the aforementioned 'Chris Cilliza empathises with a laid-off steelworker' series?

The basic flaw with democracy is that at some point you've got to stop absolving voters and realise that a lot of people want terrible things. For every Trump voter who got conned there's at least two more cheering on his plan to throw every Mexican in the United States into a giant pit.

I'm just absolutely baffled that there are Serious People writing Serious Thinkpieces arguing that the problem is that the Democratic Party isn't contemptuous enough of people who don't vote for it. It really lends some credence to the idea that, when you're insulated from the actual outcomes of bad policy (e.g. by being a famous liberal pundit, or whatever Oakvale is), you start to view politics as a purely will-to-power (or will-to-feeling-superior, really, since wielding power typically requires winning elections) exercise rather than something that has real consequences if the bad guys keep winning.

I am not a politician and don't feel the need to lionise the electorate. You have zero idea as to what degree 'bad policy' affects me but by all means continue your preening.

21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: A younger Jerry Brown... on: March 21, 2017, 03:05:15 pm
I get tired of people point out age. Somehow Jerry Brown can manage to have held jobs as mayor in Oakland and Governor of biggest state in history of the US for 16 years but is too old to be elected President?  Meanwhile the median age for a Senator is 70?

IT is another form of evaluating people based on something other than their ability to perform the task at hand. An 80 year old can be elected president and the country will be jsut fine.

Another unhealthy thing that has happened is we expect the President to run for re-election.  This dates back to even before radio, and LBJ is the only example of anyone not running for 2nd term, dating back to TR, and before him I think before the civil war.,

The Presidency has become a behemoth, not a coequal branch of government or we would not make such a big deal about these things.  Maybe it is a holdover from the idea of a monarch.

Yes a man who'd be 86 at the end of his term is too old to serve in the Presidency. Not sure what's complicated about this?

I've seen about ten thousand takes about how Bush is being rehabilitated in light of Trump and basically zero actually evidence that Bush is being rehabilitated in light of Trump.

Corn is a junk crop that only exists as an industry because of scams and handouts.
