Really I am 50/50 on him. He's done good work, but as a person he is a complete dick and too often I get the impression that he views govt as an enemy, and those kinds of people tend to really annoy me because they only ever seem to consider the negative aspects of it.

We have to stop these animals. This is just nuts. Around the world, these people are committing atrocities more and more. They have to be stopped.

I'm of course referring to men.

Because cultural differences don't real.

Re-posting my comment from a similar thread for relevance.

I understand the the majority of asylum seekers ect. aren't like that but enough are (especially young men, whom we are talking about) are to the point where it is an issue. By denying it and shaming people who point it out we are only adding fuel to the far-right.

Comments like "well maybe it's MEN IN GENERAL who are the problem" are so obviously silly that it serves no purpose other than to create a self-inflicted straw-man that serves only to delegitimize the left in the eyes of reasonable people.

It's time for certain people on the left to realize that all because someone is a member of a minority ethnic/social group that they aren't somehow incapable of culturally structured wrongdoing. It's time to consider the "lived experience" of people who are the victims of this stuff also. You might not like what you hear.

This horrifying trashcan of a human being is trying to scam leftists into supporting him in 2020. Why did Bernie allow himself to be used as a prop?

The thing people must learn about the modern GOP is that they don't perceive this as an assault on America, because only they represent America. Unless it was targeted at Republicans, the representatives of real America, then foreign influence and such isn't a negative.

This. Republicans I know in real life honestly seem to think they have a monopoly on being American as well. Honestly it's kind of getting old.

Lindsey Graham and John McCain are putting country above party. They deserve praise Bigby.
111  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What if Trump VETOES ObamaCare Repeal? on: January 05, 2017, 08:10:57 pm
Trump could possible secure his re-election by doing this very thing.

Immigrant men from North African background, are much more likely to commit crime, than german men.

But, but, but....... you're not allowed to say that!

113  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Austrian Cardinal: "Muslims NOT to blame for the de-Christianisation of Europe" on: January 05, 2017, 07:24:47 pm
Yes, let's fight the ever growing role of a fairy tale cult by doubling down on our own fairy tale cult. 😑

As someone who cares neither about religion nor faith my primary concern is not to strengthen one religious group in order to provide a bulwark against another. The reason why people like me have a problem with Islam is not because I believe it will weaken Christianity in Europe but because its hidebound values are far more prevalent than they are among Christian sects.

Maoist scum.

I highly doubt anyone involved in this video even knows what Maoism is.
115  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: teens live stream their torturing of bound and gagged trump supporter on: January 04, 2017, 07:31:22 pm
Nowhere in the article does it say he was a Trump supporter. Nice try though.

Point of Order: China will not go to war with the US to defend North Korea.

Nothing. 

Well you're a conservative so.......

119  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Vienna police to distribute 6000 anti-rape kits for women on New Year's Eve on: January 01, 2017, 05:06:06 pm
Oh god, this is because of ceartin muslims, right?

This is because of certain young Arab and North African males who don't have their testosterones under control.
FTFY
Ethnicity is hardly irrelevant in this context, so no need to "fix" it.
... are you kidding?
Are you? Let's not pretend it's Europeans who roam around the streets on New Year's Eve grabbing women by the p***y.

Well, given recent trends (the Roosh V crowd) and the incidents with the "migrants" (those who are criminals should painly be expelled), I'm sure there is plenty of European young men doing that and using the fact migrants are spotlighted to get away with it. As we say, opportinuity makes the rapist.

Rape did exist before Muslims arrived.

     Rape and other crimes on this scale have not been a thing outside of wartime and foreign occupations. Supposing that this is not an issue primarily with migrant populations is fundamentally detached from reality.

Oh, I'm aware, I just mean that's utter naivety to not believe than the local rapists don't use that chaos to hide their actions. Like I said, justice needs to be very harsh.

Everything you've said in this thread is pure Whataboutery.
120  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are you "normalizing" Donald Trump and Mike Pence? on: December 30, 2016, 09:32:11 pm
Are you normalizing the results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Donald Trump and Mike Pence's victory? Are you normalizing the Trump/Pence inauguration? Should it be normalized? Is it acceptable?

Buzzfeed? Is that you?

North Korea. It's time for the suffering there to end.
122  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Trump extradite Fethullah Gülen to Turkey? on: December 28, 2016, 04:12:07 pm
(Not hyperbole by the way, I actually know people who believe God chose Obama to be President and implanted him in the office and Trump is going against God's will.)

Well that's just silly.

An actual example of Trump utilising the best people.

Gulen should flee to Canada ASAP.
