I sincerely doubt you could find 9 European men to agree to conspire to rape someone.

This is kind of like with terrorists attacks, where when it's multiple people, it's almost (almost) always Islamists and all the non-Muslims are always lone wolfs.

If a White person brought this idea up to another White person, the other White person would freak out and report them. If a White person brought this up to 9 other White people, at least one of them would.

Seriously, how do 9 people agree to commit a gang rape? This kind of conspiracy is only possible because of the morally backwards, intellectually stunted culture these people come from.

This kind of behavior will backfire.

No, it really won't.

...are we living in Bizarro world here? Eharding's fundamentally evil views are entirely irrelevant to this discussion. The problem with him is that he's a bot-tier, no-life spammer who literally posts 50+ times a day (He behaves like this on multiple websites, too. I can't even begin to imagine how he finds the time to post that often.) and ruins virtually every thread he enters. He is an utter pest who should obviously be permabanned unless he agrees to cool it with the constant posting.

I'm sorry, but what "populist appeal" does Macron have, exactly?

Anyway, no sane left-winger would vote for someone like Macron as long as left-wing candidates are also on the ballot. As much as I like Melenchon, getting a left-winger to the second round is of utmost importance so that France doesn't end up with a fascist or Thatcherite as president, so I'm going to have to go with Hamon.

edit: Antonio beat me to it.

Personally, I hold a very positive view of Jacobin's content (aside from the occasional silly hot-take re: keeping Mars socialist, or whatever), as well as it's aesthetic. Most liberals here seem to hold it in disdain, so I'm interested in seeing if the results of the poll back up my suspicion.

For the record, I don't know if I support this, but I definitely support enforcing a strict "if you block traffic without a permit, you go to jail for a long, long time" rule with zero ambiguity.

...are you a fucking sociopath? What kind of weirdo has this much of a hard-on for handing out draconian punishments for rather trivial crimes? It's high-time for you to rethink your life in it's entirety if this is what you fantasize about all day.

Oh, but, please, keep deleting all the posts that include curse words. That will show the world that this forum has standards!
Ah yes, good old Nazi comparisons. Nothing gets your point across better!

Looks like our resident would-be NSDAP voter got triggered by Antonio's post!

"Wow look at how overconfident Democrats are on this forum!"
It's not like the outcome is impossible.

Ted Cruz winning the nomination in 2024 isn't a real possibility. If his brand of conservatism isn't dead yet, it certainly will be in eight years.
You mean the ideology of pro constitution limited government conservatism? No my friend that will live on forever because I have news for you. People aren't really a fan of big government telling them what to do with their health care, how to educated their children, how they have to run their businesses. That's why a "left wing tea party" would not last. It's the opposite of small government and free market capitalism. And guess what if it's not Ted Cruz it will be someone like Mike Lee or maybe even Greg Abbott or possibly Tom Cotton, Mike Pence, or Ben Sasse or someone who's a fresh face who's much more conservative than any of them. Though my guess is Ted Cruz will probably be the next Republican nominee if Pence decides not to run for president

False on literally all accounts. First off, Reagan conservatism is not pro-"limited government" and hasn't even arguably been since 2001 when the party began it's rapid shift into authoritarianism. None of the scoundrels you mentioned sans Pence (for obvious reasons) will even be remotely relevant by 2024.

I'm just sick of it. I'm sick of it. I'm just sick of it. Trump will not resign. Just focus on 2020 and 2024 and see what happens. Remember, most Americans don't vote. We have people who know more about Kim Kardashian and The Bachelor so I don't know if this will really affect anything. His voters will feel alienated, especially the Russian-American voters in Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach, New York, places in southeast Florida, etc.

He won the electoral college. We don't count the popular vote here. We have to wait for more information, okay?

Ah, yes, what will Trump do without the crucial battleground states of Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach in his column?

Incredible how Fillon still has so many voters -- and so many locked in.

cause Fillon is Maggie Thather 2.0 and that is a good thing

21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Emmanuel Macron on: February 13, 2017, 10:59:18 am
He is, strictly speaking, a centrist. "Moderate hero" is a term used to delegitimize and derogate centrism as an ideology in general.

"Centrism" isn't actually an ideology.

The left and the right have both commonly feared centrism because of its widespread appeal and the fact that it works.

Even if you personally believe that the ideology you're describing works well, you have to realize that there is absolutely no market for it in 2017, and for good reason.

Macron supports repeal of actual red tape, and Democrats fear that. Democrats love regulation because it helps their big business donors, while hurting small business. This propaganda has been spread by the left wing talking heads.

Huh What? Huh

The idea of centrism is combining a reduction of regulations with Keynesian economics, staunch support for balanced budgets, and general issue-by-issue dissection. This is too complicated for a lot of people, so it gets called neoliberalism, corporatism, and a variety of other names.

Those are accurate labels, though. "Centrism" is the meaningless term, here.

All of those people are horrendous.
