I feel we should do something about EnglishPete and Klartext. It's blatantly obvious that they're intentionally trying to provoke other users into breaking rules and causing fights.

There's also the fact that Klantext is quite literally a Neo-Nazi activist in Germany, at least according to people familiar with the situation on AAD.

Also, how the f-ck is Classic Conservative not banned after his Aryan rant?

^ Teachout performed more than 2% better than Clinton.

She lost by 8 while Hillary lost by 6.8. Let's not be intellectually dishonest.

Quist is en route to lose by like 8% while Clinton lost by, what, 20%? Clearly we need to go the Bernie route tbqh imo.

Great post on AAD re: "Berniecrats" & the WWC:

One last hot take: "oh no we can't win non-college whites, we need the suburbs!"

No one was saying that we could win them, particularly with the nasty age distribution of the less educated. People were saying we needed to win over the ones who voted for Obama in 2012. That is exactly what happened tonight. There was a gargantuan swing from Trump to Quist throughout much of Montana, particularly in the parts that are working class and that are not rural. Does anyone think that, outside of the Crow, there were Obama voters who voted for Gianforte?

Since he lost the DNC race and is still in the House, why not Keith Ellison?

I think Gianforte would be a home run for this seat and hell, it'll open him up to winning the Governorship in 2020 should he choose to run.

I beg to differ. Gianforte comes across to me as the sort of candidate very likely to spontaneously combust - a regular Akin-in-the-making, in other words. I don't claim to know anything about Montana politics, but Gianforte strikes me as just about the best candidate we could face this side of Punching Bag Spencer.

He is nothing like Todd Akin. Please stop.

!!!

Dude, I know you guys are gloating over this already, but let's wait until the election is over first. And no, Gianforte really was no Akin before this incident. McCaskill knew that Akin would implode which is why she rigged the primary and bragged about it later. In this case, no one thought that something like this was going to happen. No one.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm still not totally convinced that Quist will win yet, nor did I ever get the impression that Gianforte was an Akin-type before all of this. I still think that post is gold, though.

Questions Continue to Swell: No Record That Rob Quist Registered for Selective Service Says National Archives
Washington Free Beacon/Brent Scher
May 24, 2017 5:00 am

Quote
The National Archives "conducted an extensive search" and was unable to locate any record of Montana Democrat Rob Quist registering with the Selective Service System, the United States government's list of individuals eligible for conscription to the military.

Quist, born on January 5, 1948, would have been required by law to register with the Selective Service System after his 18th birthday in 1966. The National Archives and Records Administration, which has the sole responsibility for maintaining records for men born before 1960, has no record that Quist ever registered.

--Snip--

This is probably the last oppo dump on Quist - and likely too late to have any effect anyway.

FYI - The national archives found Quist's selective service registration this afternoon.  The Free Beacon has updated their story to reflect this.

big if true

Neither Obama nor Hillary was a real moderate.

Okay, then who exactly is a "real moderate"?

Rank them from 1 being the best and worst being somewhere like 20.

Democrat's Motto: Shut up and stay in line!


"Cory Booker is the next big progressive hero!"
"Wait, isn't he the Senate's number one supporter of charter schoo---"
"NEXT. BIG. PROGRESSIVE."

Charter schools are the progressive alternative  to school vouchers. Gotta think outside the box in the worst school districts.

I'm sick of this "no alternative" nonsense that Third Wayers espouse. The "Progressive alternative" to full privatization of education is absolutely not partial-privatization. How about Democrats take a stand for once and actually work to expand and improve public education instead of compromising with our opposition at every turn?

Because charter schools are the only issue that matters Roll Eyes

When did I even suggest that "charter schools are the only issue that matter"? Besides, all of the posts in that chain of quotes I quoted were talking about charter schools as well so I don't see what the problem is here...? Huh

As the 5th most liberal Senator, he should be a shoo-in for Bernie's successor. But they'll cherrypick some random issue and hate him for it instead, just watch.

Cory Booker is a right-winger who voted to reauthorize the PATRIOT Act, is one of the most steadfast proponents of privatizing schools in the Senate, doesn't support Medicare for All or a 15$ Minimum Wage, supports "enterprise zones" to solve the problems faced in urban communities, and is one of AIPACs favorite Democratic Senators.

The last thing this country needs is a Democratic President who wants to play nice with the GOP. 2020 is a massive opportunity for progressives, and it's more than understandable that they don't want to blow it by electing another New Democrat.

Because this is not a good time for instability in Europe (and the West as a whole), and overall, liberal democracy is looking pretty fragile right now. No, I do not agree with much of the CDU's domestic policy, but Germany, the strongest country in Europe, can't be turned over to a geopolitical novice lefty when outside forces are trying to weaken the EU and NATO. Maintaining the liberal world order is important to me.

Understandable sentiment, I suppose, but I don't really see how Martin Schulz of all people would constitute a threat to the western democratic order if he were to become the next Chancellor.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What parties would you be in other countries? on: May 21, 2017, 03:29:31 pm
Here's a few:

US: Democratic
Canada: Liberal
UK: Liberal Democrats
France: En Marche!
Germany: CDU, only for Merkel
Netherlands: D66
Austria: SP
Poland: PO
Italy: PD
India: INC
Japan: Democratic
Australia: ALP, although the Greens don't completely suck here
Brazil: Whatever party is best to stop the libertarian coup

Why?
