GOOD. It’s about damn time we had some good news.

I could hear this sound in my head as they were pulling his fat little body out of the hole.
So typical of these Constitution, Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine-loving wingnut types - they don’t actually have a clue about all the things they claim to revere. My personal favorite is watching them quote George Orwell to denounce the evils of socialism. (Orwell was a dedicated advocate of democratic socialism, in case you weren’t aware. He hated the fascist insanity of second-world communism, but his socio-economic beliefs make Bill Maher look like Donald Trump.)
Weak, weak trolling, but disgusting nonetheless.
He’s most certainly not wrong, although the racists are going to tear him a new one for daring to say this.
Tea Party: opposed to “socialism” (they’re not really sure what that means, just a scary boogeyman and general catch-all term to describe any policy they feel is too liberal or which might benefit a group of people they don’t like (mostly the “lazy” poor), opposed to “big government” (same deal as opposition to “socialism”; also includes a belief that not allowing white, straight, cisgender (that means “not transgender, btw) Christians to bully racial, LGBQT and religious minorities somehow constitutes persecution of white, straight, cisgender Christians), support tax breaks for the wealthy, insist that anything policy they oppose is “unconstitutional” without any understanding of how the Constitution actually works, generally extremely white and terribly ill-disposed to minorities Obama: supports tax hikes for the wealthy and tax breaks for the rest of us, more efficient government, hasn’t actually violated the Constitution except in ways that make liberals & progressives, not right-wingers, angry (warrantless surveillance, drone killings without due process, etc) (Sorry, that was long; it just needed to be said.)
Right-winger: DERP Democrats are racist DERP KKK DERP party of slavery!!!! Liberal: *weary sigh (having heard all of this bullshit many times before)* That is false and a deliberate misrepresentation of the historical facts; the Democrats who supported slavery and systematic white supremacism were conservative right wingers, ie, they were actually modern Republicans, while anti-slavery Republicans were progressive reformers, which made them modern Democrats. Right-winger: DERP SEN. ROBERT BYRD KKK DERRRRP!!!! Liberal: *weary sigh*
Just goes to show that you don’t necessarily have to be white to be racist, minority-hating dumbass.
But please, tell me more about how we don’t live in a virulently white supremacist society. Beyond disgusting.
“Well this isn’t a race issue. It’s a police issue.”
Actually, it’s both. There are two separate but related issues in the Michael Brown shooting: 1) how out-of-control our nation’s law-enforcement officers have become in their often violent mistreatment of (often innocent) citizens, and 2) how much worse that mistreatment is and how much bias there in the legal system in general against people of color, and against blacks in particular. Holder is speaking out against the second issue here; that doesn’t mean he isn’t concerned about the first.
If you genuinely believe that Amnesty International is an “anti-Semetic and racist” group, then you are as insane as any of the most delusional nutjobs who have ever commented on the internet.
Actually, it’s both.
You are a racist twat. Let me enlighten you: other races - including white people - DO behave like this and destroy their own neighborhoods. Or have you forgotten what Boston looked like when the Red Sox won the World Series last year?
Racism isn’t “coming back.” Racism never left.
Y’know, that’s definitely a thing that exists, and there probably ought to a word to describe it.
Pretty sure a straight person isn’t going to experience much homophobia.
Give the man credit where it’s due. He helped. The more people and entities get behind a cause, the more quickly it can be changed. Every little bit helps.
This sounds like something our of the fucking Onion. This is, of course, just like the “Washington Redskins” controversy, with a bunch of asses refusing to change an obviously offensive name because they’d rather keep what they’re familiar rather than admit that it’s actually pretty racist - only with the name being outrageously, unbelievably, mind-blowingly terrible instead of just pretty awful.
My first thought when I read this was, “How long until the racists accuse him of ‘dividing America’ and ‘being racist’ for doing this?” I see from the comments above and below that they’ve already started in.
So true! And did you know that blacks also kill white babies and use their blood in their Kwanzaa rituals? That’s definitely a true fact and totally not just some racist bullshit I pulled out of my ass to slander black people.
When the Red Sox won the World Series last year, Sox fans in Boston (most of them white) decided to celebrate how awesome Boston is … by trashing the city of Boston. What I’m getting at is that the last part of your comment is inaccurate and racist and also stupid.
Did you just make, like, a dozen sock puppet accounts on this site to make it look like there a lot of people who agree with your idiotic counter-argument? Or did a dozen people actually read this article and each post the same bullshit pro-discrimination talking point?
They condemn the US for getting involved when the situation doesn’t call for it and get upset when we fail to take action (military or otherwise) quickly enough. (Sadly, both these situations occur far too frequently.) These people most certainly aren’t “ignorant.”
So, wait: is this satire? Or is it just an attempt at self-deprecation by a bunch of frat boys? Because if it’s the former, then it’s quite good; if it’s the latter: how can people have such excellent self-awareness and such a lack of shame? Either way, the comments being left here would indicate that frat boys are indeed pretty deserving of all the negative stereotypes against them.
Far easier said than done …
“The executive orders are more for making minor, administrative decisions, not to break national and constitutional laws, or to change laws at a whim.” And Obama has done the former, and not the latter. You can’t just accuse Obama of shit he hasn’t actually done and then pretend he’s some kind of criminal.
“He is such a moron, a useless moron. A pitiful character that has no morals. What a waste.” Yes, that is certainly a very apt description of Sean Hannity.
Dismissing valid concerns about something harmful because it only affects members of the first world is a fallacy. Stop using it to try to derail these conversations. Also, this shit doesn’t just affect first-world women. The same type of patriarchy which negatively affects women’s lives in our society affects the lives of women in every country on Earth, first- and third-world alike.
The fact that men’s sports are so much more popular than women’s is obviously sexist, though.
Than you’re a sexist moron who’s unwilling or incapable of accepting the truth. That’s your problem, not feminists’.
Each single moon mission is ridiculously expensive, takes an enormous amount of work, is terribly dangerous - and there just really isn’t all that much to do on the surface of the moon to justify all those things. Mostly, though, no one wanted to spend any more tax dollars on something that the public had quickly lost interest in. Once we landed on the moon, we’d beaten the Russians and won the Space Race, and unfortunately the extraordinary feat of sending a human being to walk on an alien world lost its pizzazz after it had been done more than once.
Nice to see a Christian actually encouraging others to be Christ-like. It’s a nice change from all those douchebags who loudly proclaim their Christian faith, and then even more loudly champion hatred and selfishness and cruelty toward the poor and the oppressed and the less fortunate - y’know, just the way Jesus would want.
Every single one of these is simply magnificent.
Did this shitkicker not realize that he just compared undocumented Latino immigrants to the heros of Normandy and the United States to the Third Reich? I guess right-wingers put as little thought into the defense of their beliefs as they put into those beliefs themselves.
Yes, let’s. They certainly deserve it.
I really hate to label this a “WIN” since this was a senseless tragedy in which an innocent boy was killed - but this was indeed the correct outcome, since there was no wrongdoing or misconduct on his part. Sometimes accidents just happen; there isn’t always a bad guy to punish.
