General Politics Thread - I
[warning][/warning][/WARNING]

Okay Folks Listen Up!

Maybe we should have done this from the very beginning but it looks like we need some basic rules for posting in this thread.
We expect people here to act like adults and if you can not handle the rules then you don't have to post here.

1) Politics mean passion, that is to be expected. We do not care what side of the bird you fly on but you will respect the folks on the other wing. You don't have to like them but if you can't have a reasonable conversation then maybe this isn't the place for you.

2) Just as you do not insult other members on the rest of the board that goes double here. Just because your ox gets gored is not an excuse to act like a child in a playground. Flinging shit will get you kicked.

3) Previous things that have been acceptable aren't. We don't swear at each other, we don't call other people turds or cunts. This isn't going to happen anymore. If you can't be a grownup, you can leave. Or I can make you leave.

4) This is not a place to meme and run. If you want to use a meme to start your point fine, but stick around and write something to back it up. This is about conversation.

5) People can argue and not be assholes. If you can't manage to do that, then go away. If you make a mistake, I or one of the other mods, will call you out. Say you are sorry and move on. No worries. Everyone makes mistakes. Me especially. The trick is to not make them again. Just don't keep making them or you will be asked to not come back.

Thank you.

Commie, when do you think the Republicans will commit political career suicide and vote to impeach Trump?

You crack me up. Your hatred of Trump is amusing and entertaining. Don't ever change that. The fact that his presidency has caused you physical, emotional, and psychological pain is intriguing and fascinating. It's like you wait day and night hoping for Trump to be removed from office. You really think the Republicans will end their political careers just to make you and the Skynet Trump resistance happy? Your hatred of the GOP is also fascinating and intriguing. You sound like you want all of them purged.

FACT CHECK: Paul Nehlen is buttmad at Trump for not being right-wing enough, if that says anything. He called Trump a cuck because he didn't deport enough POC and invoke the "fourteen words" in his speeches.

I've been following him just for the inevitable crash and burn. The guy apparently has a few million $ of fuck you money but he's vastly overestimating the mainstream appeal of Nazi Pepe memes and Holocaust denial. He's the far-right equivalent of Ron Paul in that the Internet talks about him but nobody will vote for him in real life, and he's going to waste all his cash campaigning to an empty room. Basically the only people who see him as anything but a non-entity are @commiecorvus and Nehlen himself.

Arthur Jones also backed away from Trump because he doesn't hate Jews enough, and he's mad that there are so many of them around Trump. Just looking at him the guy is a goofy larper in jackboots. Look at that fat slob standing next to him holding the wooden shield LMAO. He will sway exactly zero people who didn't already agree with his bullshit anyway. 80% chance of him being an agent provocateur (WhiteNat ranks are thick with them).

Wow. The distance you're reaching here is equivalent to the distance between Earth and Pluto.

You guys want Trump out of office? Correct? By whatever means necessary? Am I wrong? What I don't get is how you hate Trump so much but what are you going to do about President Pence? All because your candidate choked an election away.

It's not that I see him as an 'entity'.
I see him as a Republican candidate (who will probably lose) but will get plenty of time on the air to spout his evil shit.
None of these guy get anymore more value from me than any one of the white-wing fuck nuggets on the dark web.
Except for one fact, they are in the national spotlight and getting that kind of coverage.
Is that good?
Having the light of day shined on the odorous slimy reptiles so they shrivel up under the weight of mockery and dank memes.
I though that was what would happen to the douchecanoes on YouTube but it just gave them a base and they helped elect a president.
I'm beginning to lose faith in this countries ability to filter out its worst elements.

I've had this talk with you before, please don't make me do it again.

I do not hate the GOP.
I have voted for Republicans on many occasion and would do so again.
I have friends and family who are Republicans who I love and respect.

Do I dislike what some members of the Grand Old Party have done to their party?
Absolutely.
Do I feel that there are members who rightly deserve to be voted out of office?
Most of them.
The party itself is not the problem.
The people who have co-opted it are.

I made a long list of the pain 45 has caused people and how that will most probably continue long into the future.
If you can't feel any of that you are sorely lacking in empathy.
