Sanders campaign is real, it seems that Dems want a real progressive to win.

Yes, and that real progressive that we want to win is Hillary Clinton.

Yeah, I don't understand how it's possible to deny in good faith that physical and mental disability are axes of oppression and discrimination.

I don't think it's that, it's just the term "ableist" has been thrown around by Tumblr types so much that it isn't taken seriously. It's likely The Boy Who Cried Wolf syndrome.
103  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why is Bush so underrated? on: June 25, 2015, 11:44:32 pm
Bush is not as far right as Clinton is far left and therefore wins more centrist voters over.

When's the last time "centrist voters" decided the election? 2000?

Epic FF for the ages. A creative genius whose passion and vision thankfully lives on to this day. Sure, he had his flaws (he was a big businessman, with all that entails) but the good far outweighs the bad.

He really meant well, but Sarkeesian, no matter what you think of her, is too toxic to use an example regardless.

This. Same goes for Wu. John Oliver chose possibly the worst two people for his examples he could have.

Aren't they basically the KKK with nice suits? Why haven't they been declared a terrorist group already?

Because having repulsive opinions doesn't make you a terrorist group?
108  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Isn't this a reasonable solution for the flag situation? on: June 20, 2015, 09:27:53 pm
It should be removed from state grounds altogether. The Confederate veterans memorial should have an American flag. Those men were victims of the treason of the slave-holding class and should be acknowledged as such.

Freedom Fighter, hands down. One of the best.

The conventional wisdom was that he did want to make another go, but Jeb Bush more or less boxed him out.

What a colossal miscalculation by the Republican establishment. It's apparent by now they should've went with Romney.
112  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Rachel Dolezal on: June 19, 2015, 01:28:57 am
Hilarious person.

Also, getting lost in all of this is that her parents only exposed her to discredit her testimony in an upcoming sexual abuse case against her older brother. While she's certainly a trainwreck and a habitual liar, we may all be getting played by a far greater evil.
113  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Democrats: do you forgive Hillary Clinton for voting for the Iraq War? on: June 18, 2015, 11:38:00 pm
Yes -I have gotten over it.  And so should everyone else.  It's water under the bridge now that she admitted that it was a mistake.  The only people who don't are those with an axe to grind against her for other reasons. 
114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should Dylann Roof receive the death penalty?/Will he? on: June 18, 2015, 11:00:34 pm
Yes and yes.  Mass murderers like him deserve the death penalty.

116  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Do you ever have weird personal feelings of irrendentism? on: June 18, 2015, 09:15:18 pm
Have you read anything about German war aims? I mean they weren't Nazi, but the plans for the "East" were a near prototype(German princes as monarchs, German settlers with the locals working the land as sharecroppers in the Ukraine/Lithuania/Poland). France crippled economically indefinitely, half of Belgium annexed. The Germans got off incredibly lightly.

Yes but all of this is beside the point. I was explaining why Beezer's idea of Germany being actually expanded after WWI would never happen.

The Tumblr fan base ruins it.

Yes, I wouldn't mind living in a Germany that stretched to Lithuania, complete with intact cities. IMO the best solution after WWI would have been to have allowed the German speaking peoples of Germany and Austria (+ Sudetenland) to unite. Maybe that could have averted the following conflict.

But that would mean France has no chance of being the dominant power in Europe, thus defeating the entire purpose of the Versailles Treaty. The entire thing was a sham from the start.

You sir, are high as a damn kite, if you don't believe the GOP hasn't assessed how big of a threat Hillary is this time around. Strategists for the RNC are gonna' have to get their sh**t together and roll out a killer game with a killer ticket consisting of hopefully Marco Rubio or/with Rand Paul to really make things happen in 2016.

Here's the thing: Strategists for the RNC don't get to choose the ticket, the primary voters do.

I'd be OK with Poland giving back the areas it took from Germany after WW2, if it gets back the areas it lost to USSR. The 1923 borders were awesome.

The Soviets had a more legitimate claim to those lands then Poland ever did, to be fair. The ethnic makeup of the population was mostly Ukrainian and Belorussian IIRC.
122  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: On What Issues Is Obama to Bill Clinton's Right? on: June 17, 2015, 09:00:26 pm
Foreign policy, our country has never been further right since Dubya, and Obama is just Dubya's policies made smarter and with more panache.

This is ridiculous nonsense. The Iran and Cuba rapprochements make this clear. All because someone isn't some True Leftist "anti-Imperialist" doesn't mean they are "rightist since Dubya".
123  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Iraqi Army No Longer Exists on: June 17, 2015, 01:14:19 am
Yes, but it would codify them. At least ISIS should we wiped out before we start talking about partitioning.

Okay I guess we'll just wait for that to happen then. So I'm guessing you are willing to support the Assad Regime? Because that's the only realistic way for ISIL to be defeated. If Assad falls then Syria is lost.

Basically we ("the West") have been outmaneuvered on a grand scale. If ISIL is to be defeated that means Iran becomes the dominant power with a "Shia Crescent" spreading from Iran through Iraq into Syria and Lebanon. There is literally no realistic mechanism by which ISIL is defeated without Iran being the ultimate winner.

Spare me the delusions about the "Free Syrian Army".
124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President of Spokane NAACP outed as white imposter on: June 17, 2015, 01:04:59 am
The intersectionalist left/SJWs/cultural Marxists/whatever you want to call them do not support transracialism. There was some confusion the first couple of days but now they are all uniformly against it. If you defend it, you will be shouted down as transphobic and racist.

You can still be against the concept, but you're wrong to pretend its something that the left is pushing.

Yeah but that's what SJW's say about anyone who disagrees with them on anything so does it really have any meaning anymore?
125  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would you like to see Trump on: June 16, 2015, 01:10:40 pm
If Donald Trump wants to hand the Democrats an electoral college landslide, I say, go ahead.
