Trial runs for fascism are in full flow

quote [ Babies in cages were no 'mistake' by Trump but test-marketing for barbarism. To grasp what is going on in the world right now, we need to reflect on two things. One is that we are in a phase of trial runs. The other is that what is being trialled is fascism... ]

Trump may be an ignorant jackass, but he knows what he's doing. It's no accident that his choice for Supreme Court is the one who said that Presidents should be immune from criminal investigations. Meanwhile such fine 'liberal' institutions as the NY Times and the Washington Post continue to debate the proper arrangement of deck chairs on the Titanic.

I thought the comment section at that article was surprisingly good. Thoughtful, no random caps... What do the Irish know that we don't?

Clearly their pride in their fine European heritage has been corrupted by Muslim immigrants.

Oh, just wait until you see the comments section on the Orangemen marches...
captainstubing said @ 12:23am GMT on 13th Jul
Oh yeah, I know. But that particular thread struck me as being quite civil...and that isn't something that strikes me at too many comment threads.

Ha! And right on cue and to your point:

Still, there were no harsh words exchanged.

" Less defense spending from my taxes is ostensibly what it means. "

Oh my sweet summer child.
hellboy said[2] @ 8:24am GMT on 13th Jul
It doesn't mean anything of course, because (like the North Korea deal) it didn't happen. The European members of NATO said they're going to increase their spending to 2% of GDP by 2024 - exactly as they already agreed to do when Obama was President.

Those facts have no place in this conversation. Come now.

The guy who has alienated most of our allies and is making friends with our enemies. Do you listen to yourself talk? I wish that you wouldn't.

Talk that is.

Meanwhile North Korea continues its nuclear program, has returned the promised remains of zero American soldiers, and that Nobel Peace Prize will show up any day now.

They keep telling the same lies, even when they're shown to be lies, and eventually, people start to believe it. There was no apology tour, that's just more GOP bullshit.
