Good to see the US public opinion is finally coming around to this. Hopefully Europeans will feel the same way.

But I like the Reid Report. It's one of the better news shows on television.

Ugh.

Wealthier dictatorship, duh.

The tired MRA-harping about how great it is to be raped or whatever is not worthy of more than being told to shut up. I'm sorry if that hurts the feelings of you manly men.

Literally no one in this thread said this. You are just flat making things up at this point because you aren't actually capable of constructing a counter-argument.

Firstly, seriously, stfu.

SJW arguments in a nutshell.

what the FYCK is this sh**t

Some objectivity. I'm not saying rape isn't terrible. But people who are falsely accused can have ramifications just as long-standing and terrible. Especially considering everyone knows your name and face and there will always be a big swath of people who "just know" you did it.

Never mind if you actually get convicted and sent to prison for years before it's revealed that it was bogus.
108  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is feminism the solution to what MRAs often complain about? on: February 19, 2015, 02:38:23 pm
Not to mention that Rape is much worse than being falsely accused of rape.

This is very, very debatable. An argument could be made that there are actually more long standing ramifications of being falsely accused.

Great. Let's have America be more like the country that Germany invaded in two months.


That a stupid comparison, c'mon. The idea is we should be more like them socio-economically.

Also Denmark's social system had nothing to do with them being defeated by Germany in a day.

Stop all the nonsense about "micro-aggressions" and start focusing on actual things that matter in real life.

why do you get to decide what "matters in real life"?

That's not what I was saying and you know it. I was saying that they should focus on things like fair pay and reproductive health. Not getting outraged because someone said "work is a bitch today" in casual conversation and the like.

him/her? not really, through I can't say I care much about the gender of Manning, it's really rather irrelevant, it have nothing to do with why she's in prison, and if I was trans, I wouldn't really use her as representant of transsexuality and become angry every time someone mispronounce her gender (in fact I would be happy, because I would hope they didn't connect transsexuality with a traitor).

What the [Inks] is wrong with you?

It' really isn't that big of a deal. Stop looking for reasons to be "offended". Not being massively outraged whenever someone makes the (very understandable, btw) mistake of referring to a pre-op transsexual who was well known as male as such isn't "transphobia". It's a very basic slip of the tongue.

Nixon. The fourth best President of the 20th century.

Do you really want a Kaliningrad Airlift?

Yes, I do. It costs money. And the money spent on Kaliningrad Airlift is not spent elsewhere.

Perfect. Exactly the mentality I think we should exercise in regards to Russia.

The problem is that mainstream feminists can't stop complete man haters from calling themselves feminists, and giving up the name would give the terrible people the name which generations of women used, while they fought for their rights to be treated as human beings.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. The so-called "RadFems" need to be sidelined where they belong so that real feminists can take the helm and push for progress real issues like fair pay and reproductive health.
117  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ukraine Crisis on: February 17, 2015, 06:19:04 pm
Russia is a great power with enough nuclear weapons to leave USA as smoldering glass covered wasteland. Yes it would be nice if we could treat it as a defeated enemy or some Middle Eastern or third world sh**thole. We can't and we should accept that and look into how we need to deal with Russia (like remobilise).

I never said we should initiate a shooting war with Russia. Containment followed by RollBack should be the policy. But my main point was hat we should treat this as the threat it actually is.

The Soviet Union had a powerful nuclear arsenal too, but that didn't stop us from doing what it took to win.

If they can neutralize the Dworkinites, then yes. But modern Tumblr/Jezebel neo-feminism is just recreational outrage more than anything else. Stop all the nonsense about "micro-aggressions" and start focusing on actual things that matter in real life.

Somebody saying "man up" is not sexism. Many modern neo-feminists are some of the most privileged human beings to have ever existed in human history. They are mostly upper middle class white college graduates who make a living basically talking down to working class men, and women who don't share their views. Being offended by literally every little thing isn't getting them anywhere.

Basically if they can knock off the lynch mob mentality then we might have something we can work with.

It's time to start actually confronting Russia not just on this, but in total. Our long-term objective needs to be the destruction of the Putin regime and Ultra-Nationalism in Russia outright. The problem with 1991 was that there was no "De-Sovietization". Just internal political collapse and the establishment of Wiemar Russia. It was like 1918 all over again. And now we see the (predictable) outcome.

It's time for a new Fulton speech. We need to recognize that there is a global Russian threat that intends to undermine the current world order in favor of their Eurasianist agenda. This threat has military, economic, social, and political dimensions to it. Everything from Gazprom, the Russian mafia, and RT news network. If not publicly then internally we need to accept that these entities and those like them are enemy agencies in the new Cold War, and treat them as such.

We need to accept that the Putin regime is a neo-fascist state that is inherently a threat to the pace, freedom and stability of the entire world. Including it's own citizens. The struggle is upon us, and the free nations of the world need to unite and answer the call.

123  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would it be better for the left if Hillary lost? on: February 14, 2015, 09:42:58 pm
Scott Walker governs Wisconsin like a dictator, completely excluding Democrats from the political debate unless they sell out. He would effectively be a regent for the Koch dynasty, and with majorities in both Houses of Congress he would support legislation that would gut civil liberties and voting rights -- and Congress would approve them and he would sign them. With the GOP majority expanded in the Supreme Court, America could become for all practical purposes an Apartheid state in which minorities and the poor are effectively shut out. Elections could become a farce even if people can participate in them. As Democrats become irrelevant, the Republican supermajorities in both Congresses and in control of 3/4 of state legislatures could amend the Constitution almost at will.

ALEC would collaborate with Republican majorities in one state after another to fully entrench the Republican party forever in most states whenever they get Republican majorities with 'model' legislation.

I see no reason to believe that Scott Walker would change his ways as President of the United States from how he behaves as Governor of Wisconsin. 

Scott Walker would be the last freely-elected president of the United States, and even his second term would be the result of a rigged election.

It's like Rumsfeldia in real life.

It's deplorable, but should be legal to begin with.

Freedom Ruling.
