1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Poll: Pick up to 3 candidates you would not support (vs Trump & 3rd Party)? on: February 18, 2017, 01:00:22 pm
Bernie Sanders. The Democrats need to nominate a true progressive, not someone of his ilk. I'll vote Green in protest because I can be a special little snowflake too.

He has discovered what brand of politics is currently cool and is now playing the game masterfully.

Polnut would have stayed had things turned out differently. But you can hardly blame him for leaving; it's almost insufferable now. Mainstream politics has embraced factlessness, so the senseless moron brigade is out in force, feeling redeemed, legitimized, and proud. The disgusting and deliberate political incorrectness (Roll Eyes) is just the rotten icing on the cake.

And, on the other sides, smug elitist pricks like yourself who don't even pretend to give a crap about anyone outside the Bubble.

Indeed. When it's so obvious that my side is right and their side is wrong, not to mention that their wrongness will have considerably more negative repercussions for [already-vulnerable] people than my rightness, it's hard to have much respect. Smiley

She seems to be fighting the good fight on identity issues, at the very least. The fact that she is so bullied only makes me even more eager to support her. FF.

Once again, people who face no social oppression whatsoever on the basis of immutable aspects of their identity come out in force to decry others who dare fight for respect. Not surprising in an era where people without marginalized identities are so willfully ignorant as to underappreciate the importance of identity politics.

People are entitled to their opinions, I suppose. Just as others are entitled to shut them down when their opinions are bullsh-t. The thing is, your favourite flavour of chewing gum is an opinion. Spouting that you think it's silly that people who have been made to feel vulnerable fight for their rights... that's a different category of atrociousness. And no—hatred like that does not need to be "tolerated" or welcomed as an expression of free speech. Not when it delegitimizes a person's subjectivity. And yeah—shocker, but maybe that does actually mean we shouldn't tolerate speech that dehumanizes people. Is it censorship? F-ckin' right it is. But demanding basic respect isn't a big ask, nor is enforcing standards that make for an inclusive community. The fact that people who are otherwise respectable posters can't see all this is extremely disappointing, though, again, not surprising, especially after we have seen their true colours post-election. It's easy to scoff at people who find meaning in identity politics, or talk about sacrificing some aspects of the progressive social message in order to "win," when you're veiled in your own privilege.

Cheers! <3

a candidate gets caught by Chris Hansen?

Nah. They'd just call it fake news.

No, but I have a "Make America Gay Again" hat.

If Chuck Schumer has any balls he'd go up there and attempt to read the letter himself, and let every single Democrat follow him until they are all ordered to be silent.

How beautiful this would have been. Sigh.

Of course. He proved he loves the limelight.

Barring another Mike Dukakis tank moment, I think Hillary's handlers are going to put her into a box and not let her out for the rest of the general election. Focus on nothing more than presenting an alternative to Trump and talk some economics.

This was surprisingly prophetic.

She did nothing more at all besides be an alternative to Trump and give some lip-service to economics, and instead of a Dukakis Tank, it was James Comey and one letter.


Yes, Yes, and Yes. She ran a terrible campaign. She was the one candidate who ended up losing to DONALD TRUMP.

I will curse her name until my last breath.

In that case, it can't come soon enough.

If you don't like my gender answer, I can amend it to America's general penchant for dumbassery instead? Better?

She's a woman, you see.

I'm ready for the firing squad. Basically none of the things mentioned in this thread would have been as potent if she were a man. They would have been assets if she were Donald Trump.

I wouldn't call it an "interruption." Spicer asked him to speak from a prepared statement...

I'll be 25 next month. I first registered as a fresh 20-year-old Romney boy. I don't regret it. The Romney part, anyway.

This is horrifying.

How so? It just shows that the dumbs live where we expected them to.

Red are states that have been a deliberate destination. Green are states I've simply travelled through. Yellow are one-night overnight stays en-route to somewhere else.

The Supreme Court will make it legal.

Gut tells me she's the daughter of Han and Leia.

Either way, it's pretty damn obvious that Kylo is the one who took her to Jakku. He slaughtered everyone at Luke's temple with the Knights of Ren, but couldn't bring himself to kill his little sister. Now, she is a walking testament to his failure, which is why she always seemed to rattle him so much in TFA.

Has to be something like that, right?
