Anecdotally, I seem to find that every Trump male supporter I know has either been through a bitter divorce, or is struggling in an unhappy marriage. I'm honestly not finding an exception to this rule. Lemme know if you know of contradictory evidence, thanks. Friend might do a paper.

These are the stridently uttered cries of Trumpists desperate for people to accept Barr's version and try to turn the tables. It's utterly pathetic, and worse that some lowlifes would go along with it. Some dumbfucks are even crying "treason," as though the malfeasance in the Mueller report were the playful hijinks of a toddler instead of a damning picture of a crooked president. Not to mention petulant and unstable. I really think it's dawning on some of the Trumpettes that the Mueller report isn't really the president's friend after all.

I do believe that's a calculated move for the 2020 elections. It's best to let him martyr himself, seeing as he's so very good at it. They're afraid of backlash, better to just let his misdeeds get some airplay first.

Hasn't the reconciliation between evangelicals and Trump been a glorious bit of rationalization though? Does it not speak to the poetry of the human mind that it is able the mold a philandering, narcassitic, pathological liar into a near second coming? The absolute beauty of self-delusion, the astounding grandeur of hatred. It doesn't speak very well of us as a species, does it? It would be funny if the consequences weren't so awful.

I would say this was an excellent audition for a cabinet level position in the Trump administration, but unfortunately there is no federal bureau of sanitation. Maybe Trump will try to get him in at the CIA instead.

Dugin's rhetoric definitely played a role in the Russian involvement in Eastern Ukraine, which has caused widespread political violence. This is not under dispute.
Or maybe we can compromise and you can be appalled by liberal fascism and I will tut tut Dugin’s call for egg-head extermination.
I'm not a fan of the idea of "deplatforming", especially not for political opinions, bad as they might be (a better case could be made for explicit incitement to violence) but comparing it to fascism is moronic. Goldy hasn't had her civil rights curtailed, she was simply banned from private services, i.e. what people on her side want to do to LGBT people in the infamous "cake" brouhaha. I don't think it's a good idea and it has more than a whiff of illiberalism, but it's not even remotely comparable to the effects of Dugin's rhetoric on political violence.

Being excluded from your social circles isn't pleasant, but it's not the same thing as being shot in the face.

The real humanitarian tragedy is when AirBnB and Paypal banned Faith Goldy. How will she ever recover.

Your argument is the same kind of flawed analogical reasoning used by the SocJus to argue that video games promote "rape culture", or that a thing like "stare rape" exists.

Unlike the imposition of substandard coffee, the current social purge conforms with Genocide Watches first three indicators.

You may find this annoying or inconvenient. You may rail again a ‘genocide’ being anything other than gas chambers and crematoria.

But tough. These are the facts for you to process.
No, it doesn't, at least not unless one doesn't redefine the imposition of physical or legal symbols (badges, identifications on ID cards, etc.) by claiming that people calling you something you don't like is imposing a symbol onto you. If I call you dishonest and disingenuous, for example, you may be displeased, but that's not forcing a symbol upon you.

I'm not a fan of smearing people with false or exaggerated accusations, of course, but even that is not what Genocide Watches with their idea of forcing symbols. It's not people calling you names, accurate or not, it's the state (or a powerful state-like entity) assigning you a badge, or a star to put on your chest, or a differently colored passport, or a definition within a database that is the basis for actual policies. It's not "the evil mainstream media called me a white supremacist just because I used the 14 words unironically".

Similarly, being banned from social media isn't a violation of your civil rights. I don't think with banning Goldy or others just for their ideas, awful as they might be, but the examples that the third indicator shows are a teensy bit more substantial than being banned from Paypal or Twitter: it's a matter of apartheid, of being deprived of voting rights, of legally mandated segregation, etc.

You're playing the same po-mo word games that the SocJus plays when it calls different rates of police shootings and different incarceration rates between races the "New Jim Crow". With the difference that while the SocJus is just as hyperbolic in its redefinition of concepts, they're at least talking about real matters of life and death and deprivation of one's freedom in this case.

Or maybe you're closer to the SocJus meme that redefines words they don't like as violence, to justify answering to speech they don't like with violence. :think:

Do you remember when you laughed at Alexandr Dugin's call for a genocide of "cretins" in the Ukraine, and called it "Russian humor"?

So when someone on your side explicitly calls for a genocide, it's no big deal. But when one of your favorite Youtubers is banned from some online outlets, it's the first step towards a genocide. :think:

Unlike the imposition of substandard coffee, the current social purge conforms with Genocide Watches first three indicators.

You may find this annoying or inconvenient. You may rail again a ‘genocide’ being anything other than gas chambers and crematoria.

But tough. These are the facts for you to process.
No, it doesn't, at least not unless one doesn't redefine the imposition of physical or legal symbols (badges, identifications on ID cards, etc.) by claiming that people calling you something you don't like is imposing a symbol onto you. If I call you dishonest and disingenuous, for example, you may be displeased, but that's not forcing a symbol upon you.

I'm not a fan of smearing people with false or exaggerated accusations, of course, but even that is not what Genocide Watches with their idea of forcing symbols. It's not people calling you names, accurate or not, it's the state (or a powerful state-like entity) assigning you a badge, or a star to put on your chest, or a differently colored passport, or a definition within a database that is the basis for actual policies. It's not "the evil mainstream media called me a white supremacist just because I used the 14 words unironically".

Similarly, being banned from social media isn't a violation of your civil rights. I don't think with banning Goldy or others just for their ideas, awful as they might be, but the examples that the third indicator shows are a teensy bit more substantial than being banned from Paypal or Twitter: it's a matter of apartheid, of being deprived of voting rights, of legally mandated segregation, etc.

You're playing the same po-mo word games that the SocJus plays when it calls different rates of police shootings and different incarceration rates between races the "New Jim Crow". With the difference that while the SocJus is just as hyperbolic in its redefinition of concepts, they're at least talking about real matters of life and death and deprivation of one's freedom in this case.

Or maybe you're closer to the SocJus meme that redefines words they don't like as violence, to justify answering to speech they don't like with violence. :think:

I don’t like International Roast. And while it’s a crime against humanity it’s not strictly a genocide.
Neither is Faith Goldy being banned from Facebook.

Your mob has already:

Defined people as either progressive or evil (modernist or trad)
Applied interchangeable symbolic tags of “alt-right, Nazi, nationalist, racist”
Begun the process of discrimination by denying basic transactional services

And now you dehumanise your opposition?

Mein Gott ....
Stop being an idiot.
It’s a literal virtual genocide in the making. The joined dots are astounding.
