That has to be incredibly embarrassing to people who can't spot a narrative and/or have zero self awareness.

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure that the person holding the "Rape Melania" sign at the anti-Trump protest was also a wannabe provocateur.

Can someone with zero self-awareness even get embarrassed?

Us in the Trump camp knew that shit like this was gonna happen. The guy hasn't even been sworn in yet, and people are acting like the deathcamps have already been built and filled to capacity.

Considering all of the right-wing's anger and paranoia over Obama for things completely imagined, I think it's reasonable to be freaking out over the prospect of a Trump presidency based on the things he actually said as a candidate.

Like "Caitlyn Jenner can take a shit in whichever bathroom she feels comfortable with"? I'm paraphrasing, but we can all read between the lines there. Which is why I nailed a gay kid to a fence yesterday.

Edit: although, to be fair, I can see why people would be concerned about Mike "Watt Watt in the butt" Pence as VP.

I get Caitlyn, Kendall and Kylie mixed up. I really only know one of them from the Wheaties box as a kid, and the others, I think, are hotties mostly known for being hotties. I'm guessing he was talking about the Weaties one.

That is a distinct possibility, and would go a long way towards making the Daily Show great again.

What, did Stewart beat me to that joke? I suppose it is a pretty obvious one.

If only black, Latino, and Muslim people could be reassured by Trump's relative tolerance of LGBTQ people.

As noted by GordonGuano and sanepride, we have to be careful about our narratives here now that it has been proven that it was a black dude who put the sign up.

The same assumptions happened in my state when someone drew a gigantic swastika on a Trump sign that happened to be centrally located in my city. This was after he won. Right off the bat my liberal friends assumed that it was some racist who was telling everyone that this was their country. They wanted to protest. I immediately assumed it was the opposite - someone wanted to send a signal that they believe Trump is a racist. We'll probably never know.

Easy narratives like this are going to throw us off from real and true experiences people are having. We should never ignore, but we must be critical. Even just judging from my own anecdotal experiences, I have no doubt tons of real racist events are happening to people across the country because of this historical moment, but assuming all of these things are solely by racists does the harm of delegitimizing them. A lot of Trump voters are only going to become hardened by it, and their heart has clearly become hardened enough as it is.

That being said, I do believe people have the right to send a signal about how they feel about their country. We just have to be careful about how we report it.

Well said. Sounds like you may be coming to grips with the fear you expressed in your post about Bannon. It's important we stay vigilant, big difference is maintaining that sense of awareness about what's actually happening.

This is what happens when you refuse to pass the hate speech laws required of you by treaty and basic decency.

Take a good look America. This is you. This isn't Trump, it's you, personally. Every one of you that's allowed the Klan to exist among you is responsible for this.

If this was indeed intended as racist hate speech (it wasn't) than I'd prefer to know exactly who this person was and where they lived. If it was actually intended as an anti-racist protest statement (it was) than I'd rather not see a censorship law, however well-intentioned, stifling it. As it turns out it seems the person who put up this sign would completely agree with the second part of your comment.

Edit: No, I'm not going to bother, you little shitweasel. You know right from wrong. You deserve this.
Ussmak said @ 3:27pm GMT on 14th Nov
And yet your divisive ass didn't directly deserve this victory for supporting a woman people had warned you all year couldn't beat Trump?

Get fucked neo-libs. You fuckers act like petulant children every time something doesn't go your way, and then have the temerity to act like you're morally superior to anyone who doesn't blindly agree with you.

You lost, and thoroughly fucking deserved it. Now you can keep rioting like the fucking trash you are, or get your shit together, and force some reforms in the DNC.

Just so you know, foobar's Canadian, so he really didn't lose anything.
And just keep in mind in your gloating that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 2 million, and the crucial sates that ensured Trump's electoral victory were within 2% margins. So I'd suggest you don't go off thinking this is a giant trouncing or big mandate. We are ALL entitled to a government that serves everyone's best interest.
midden said @ 7:42pm GMT on 14th Nov
Unfortunately, a government which serves everyone's best interest is impossible, otherwise, politics would be easy.
sanepride said @ 7:56pm GMT on 14th Nov [Score:1 Underrated]
I suppose that's technically true, but I think it's possible for government to serve almost everyone's best interest. The real challenge is getting everyone to understand and agree on just what their best interest is.
midden said @ 11:57pm GMT on 14th Nov
I think the challenge is getting everyone to understand and agree that not every one of their interests can be served by the government, but some of the most common and important ones can, and that is a good thing. It's ok not to agree on what everyone's best interests are, and it's ok not to get everything you want.

Ironically perhaps, one of the Trump campaign's favorite theme songs was the Stones' 'You Can't Always Get What You Want".

You mean just like I said in January?

Yeah, you lot need to sort out both your political parties, but you need to put out the dumpster fire at risk of causing a holocaust level event first. The protests are a good start. As to what's next, I don't know. Maybe the second amendment people have some ideas.

See, this is like the super realistic looking plastic cat shit you can buy at Spencers'. You can put it on top of a covered dish in the refrigerator, but nobody will fall for that for more than a second. For the gag to achieve maximum lulz, put it next to the litter box, or in this case, Mississippi.

At any rate, I'm calling hoax on this, and will apologize to Dalillama plus send $50 to steele if I'm wrong. Until then, I have to ask...Dalillama, how many times has somebody sold you the Brooklyn Bridge?

Update: eh, I'm going to send steele the dinero anyway. This shit is too funny not to subsidize.
sanepride said @ 3:34pm GMT on 14th Nov
Not exactly a hoax, but it's meant to convey the opposite message as what everyone's interpreting it as.

The FBI has been notified and lawsuits filed. I would not be surprised if a little vigilante justice doesn't happen as well.

Fascinating if true. Sorry, meant this as a reply to numbers' photo.

Locally we have zoning laws where you cannot put up anything. Its not about free speech its about the look of the neighborhood city wide. This guy would be told once to take it down or suffer 500 dollar a day fines until he does complies. Holiday decorations and political signage are allowed but have to come down at the end of the holidays. Want to practice free speech here go about it the correct way, I'd love to see that guy holding up that sign on a street corner personally.
sanepride said[2] @ 3:32pm GMT on 14th Nov
OK as soon as I saw this image I thought there's no way this can be what it initially looks like. It's either a protest, a troll, or some kind of art project.

Sure enough-
Pittsburg police to issue citation on banner with racial slur

The home’s African-American resident, Alonzo Parker, says he is making a statement about society’s treatment of black people. Parker, in an exclusive interview with this newspaper, said he began displaying the sign to protest the outcome of a civil suit in which he was involved. Parker said the sign was meant to express his dissatisfaction with the way African-Americans are treated in society.

Protip: Try and check with local news media before taking such stories at face value, especially when reported in biased or questionable outlets.
SnappyNipples said[2] @ 4:14pm GMT on 14th Nov
Going by your post about the Pittsburgh police they are going after him under a signage ordnance law as well. So while this guy wants to get out his message with zero context, he is now wracking up a bill he will have to pay. Parker in his bumbling attempt at protest over his own problems is now being used as a foil by everyone else with an agenda. Dalillama is guilty of eating this hook line and sinker.
sanepride said @ 4:24pm GMT on 14th Nov
It's a clumsy statement to say the least, sounds like Parker is motivated more by a personal beef than by larger political issues. My impression is his neighbors probably know what he's trying to say, and yeah not just Dalillama but most of the left-wing media has prematurely freaked out on this.

Dali, I admire your passion and agree with your politics, but for the love of God, woman, do some research before you click that "share outrage" button! The way you keep trolling yourself is fucking embarrassing.

Am I the only one who read that and thought it was a protest statement commenting on racism? Apparently.

Glad to see that confirmed.
arrowhen said @ 12:21am GMT on 15th Nov
I did at first, because I misread it as "equal rights WE'LL" never see. "He'll" made it more ambiguous.
eidolon said @ 12:34am GMT on 15th Nov
I read it correctly but it's eloquent in a way that sounds like a lament and not a threat. It reminded me of Yoko's "Women are the n*****s of the world." It's a sad commentary rather than a slur in an instance like that.

A racist would just write "hang all the n*****s". They're usually straightforward about what they want.
