Dov Hikind is the worst the Jewish-American community has to offer.  The man is an absolute disgrace.

Somehow I doubt that.

I was being semi-sarcastic when I said he should run but calling him the Jewish Al Sharpton is harsh.

I mean ignoring his general bigotry, endorsement of Trump, support for people who commit hate crimes against Muslims, the fact that he dressed up in blackface for a party, has said gay marriage will lead to "incest and beastality," his corruption (pretty sure he was actually indicted at one point), and his support for racial profiling, there's also the fact that hid evidence of over 1,000 cases of sexual abuse at orthodox Yeshivas in NYC.

Not everyone has to agree with gay marriage.
No, not everyone has to agree, but saying gay marriage will lead to "incest and bestiality" is pretty bad. Interesting that you focus on that while ignoring the rest of Hikind's awfulness.

Also, everyone has to agree with gay marriage if they want to be Mayor of New York.

This is also true. And if you want to win in Utah, you can't fundraise off of mocking Mormons (something that actually happened recently).

Ron Dellums identified as "socialist" back when he was in politics.

Has the CEO resigned or faced jail time? The bosses that encouraged this need to see at least as much jail time as the regular workers.

Jerry Brown, easily. He's been able to do a lot, and I agree with most of it. The only problem is his choice of Gavin Newsom as his LG.
34  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are DU and DailyKos "far left" sites? on: September 07, 2016, 11:25:45 pm
I'm a regular on Daily Kos Elections, the even more hackish sub-group of Daily Kos. DKE cares only about elections and winning. We don't care about policy except as it involves elections. And we have an obsession with gerrymandering. It's kind of nice if you don't want histronics and wailing and weeping and gnashing of teeth and all that. Very level-headed.
35  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Issues where 'your side' frustrates you on: September 05, 2016, 12:22:02 am
1. Establishment of Constantinople as its own independent country and making it a Christian city.
2. Recognition of Taiwan as the True Heir to China.
3. Recognition of Tibet
4. Recognition of Biblical Israel and Naming it the Jewish State
5. Recognition of Kurdistan
6. Recognition of Bavaria

Considering a couple of those would literally be ethnic cleansing.... I'm glad your side frustrates you.

As for my own frustrations with the Democrats, gun control, not enough financial support for alternative energy, some of the Sanderista-style isolationism, and a few other issues I can't remember frustrate me.

In my own state, the base of the Utah Democrats frustrates me, because they're often anti-Mormon and being anti-Mormon is insane in Utah.

37  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The new state obesity rankings are out! on: September 02, 2016, 11:36:07 pm
Utah is so high because we Mormons don't drink alcohol, and we're theoretically not supposed to eat too much meat (though we do have a lot of meat anyway), and we hike a lot.

Otherwise, we're as fat as anyone else.
38  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Jesse Helms v. Crank Uygur on: September 02, 2016, 11:27:34 pm

A bit too similar to this?

Cenk Uygur is not a SJW.

Jesse Helms wasn't racist. He just opposed forced busing.

You haven't seen the "Hands" ad, have you? Or was that Ernst Hollings?

Raul Ruiz over in CA-36 should really be getting stronger opponents, but he hasn't.

Didn't Horsford also suffer a heart attack while a Congressman? Seems like Congressmen from this district have bad luck.
41  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should there be a left-wing Milo? on: August 27, 2016, 12:01:09 am
An absolute reverse of Milo would be a left-wing, straight, black redneck, as opposed to Milo's right-wing, LGBT, white (and proud of it), faux-cultured persona. Or am I interpreting Milo's persona incorrectly?
42  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Was Hillary Clinton involved in the Lindbergh baby kidnapping? on: August 26, 2016, 01:10:10 am
Hillary Clinton killed the Princes in the Tower, destroyed the Easter Island civilisation, wiped out the dinosaurs, is involved with the Bermuda Triangle, shot down Amelia Earthart, ran over Tank Man, was secretly DB Cooper, ordered the deaths in Dyatlov Pass etc.

She also sold Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, killed Abel, and led the hosts of heaven to fall from grace.
43  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Former FNC host sues; claims sexual harassment by Ailes, O'Reilly, Scott Brown on: August 24, 2016, 02:33:59 pm
To think these people wanted Bill Clinton's head on a platter because of a blowjob.
I don't get what Bill Clinton has to do with this. I would agree with you though if Bill Clinton wasn't married to Hillary in 1998 who would care about a blowjob that he was getting at the White House but he is/was married to Hillary.

I mean, I'd care that the most powerful man in the world was in a sexual relationship with an intern decades younger than him.

The power dynamics are icky, though I don't think that's what the pro-impeachment crowd was concerned about.
44  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: UT-PPP: Herbert +36 on: August 24, 2016, 09:56:02 am
Herbert is well liked, even though he really hasn't put much of a footprint on the state's politics, he usually leaves everything to the legislature, which is a bit less popular than he is. He's basically an affable grandpa, even if I think he's a corrupt sleazebag who deserves little credit for our economic recovery.

You could arguably say that about about both of the Governors who preceded him, not counting lovable old Olene Walker.

I think Huntsman is overrated (and more far-right than he's portrayed to be), but not quite corrupt, and I don't recall much about Leavitt. Herbert is the one I have the most familarity with, and he's actually had several corruption scandals which seem to slide off him like Teflon. His "Available Jones" thing, the UDOT scandal, his big donations from agriculture which coincided with an infamous "ag-gag" law... and he and half the Republican leadership in the state (including the current AG) have gotten donations from a secretive polygamist group known as the Kingstons.

Herbert's an affable "good old boy" and nothing the Utah Democrats throw at him (or any other GOP governor for that matter) seem to hurt them.

I think Rush Limbaugh has thought too deeply and closely about this subject...
46  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: UT-PPP: Lee +30 on: August 24, 2016, 01:19:50 am
Does Snow have any future in SLC politics? It's a shame that the first Trans nominee for US Senate is a sacrificial land who likely has no political career ahead of her.

Mayor of SLC, City Council in SLC, possibly even a state legislator in SLC (all of our LGBT legislators have come from extremely liberal SLC neighborhoods). No future outside of that tiny bubble.

As a side note, an openly gay state senator (Jim Dabakis) currently represents the area where the LDS Church has its headquarters. And of course SLC, with its openly gay mayor, is the city where the headquarters is located. I think the city councilor is even Derek Kitchen, the hero of the LGBT side in Utah's fight about same-sex marriage.

And no, no Democrat is beating Lee, not even Matheson. Lee's been able to crush any establishment Republican opposition, so there's no challenge from that quarter either. We'll probably just send up more sacrificial lambs against him, as usual.

So Mike Wenholtz gets about the same percentage of the vote as Hillary Clinton.

He's effectively generic Democrat at this point, which isn't very popular on a statewide level. If it were Matheson, that'd be something else, but he's not.

50  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: I made a super detailed map of religion in Scotland on: August 16, 2016, 09:25:20 am
I wonder where the Mormons in Scotland are.... Obviously they would fall under Protestant so they wouldn't be visible on this map anyway. Excellent map in any case. What are the biggest Scottish Protestant denominations?
