Political Humor thread.

This is distinct from the TRump humor thread. If you're a triggered right winger, that wants to vent the best "libs are evil" crap you can come up with, this is the place. Not the TRump cartoon and Meme thread.

Although feel free to post memes very specific to Trump about how awesome he is, in the Trump cartoon and meme thread.

TPB trying to make republicans look like even worse scumbags than they really are. Didn't know that was possible.

To what kind of extreme level would you have to know in your heart of hearts that you're on the wrong side, before you would resort to calling the other side pedophiles, with no valid reason ?

You guys like to say, "what are you talking about, "hate rallies ?"

Hate is all you've got (other than ignorance and significant emotional/spiritual challenges that is).

If you really want to compare the Impeachment to legal terms:

"Impeachment" means the President was charged.

"Acquittal" means he was found not guilty.

Mystery though, is that unlike Clinton, Trump was not charged with any actual crimes. Nebulous partisan crap like "Abuse of Power" and "Obstruction of Congress" was all the Dems had.

Literally Hitler!
No no no. Hitler was a methedrine user, Trump uses Aderall, snorts cocaine and the UK version of Sudafed with ephedrine in it. Trump hides boxes of that stuff in his desk and is shown inadvertantly in photos of Trump's office. Trump also uses Tenuate Dospan which has longterm use side effects of anxiety, paranoia, insomnia and delusions of grandeur. psychosis–delusions of grandeur‚ say‚ like the belief that by simply putting your name on real estate properties‚ you will double their value.”

Also, Trump recommends these controversial diet drugs to friends‚ and family.

Anyways, Hitler is one of the only things Trump ever actually read, but Trump's rise and his actions are disturbingly closer to Mussolini. Trump even uses exact replicas of Mussolini's facial expressions.

The Mussolini thing works better for Trump because gullible American followers recall and understand far less about Mussolini than they do Hitler.

http://www.thehypertexts.com/Donald%20Trump%20Benito%20Mussolini%20Parallels%20Fascists.htm

Like Mussolini, Trump demands loyalty to his person, rather than to the nation.
Like Mussolini, Trump threatens and humiliates anyone who opposes him.
Like Mussolini, Trump attempts to discredit and cow the legitimate press.
Like Mussolini, Trump becomes enraged when criticized.
Like Mussolini, Trump exhibits "thin-skinned ignorance combined with arrogant contempt."
Like Mussolini, Trump is a "man of the banner headline" who is quickly bored by details, discussions and strategy.
Like Mussolini, Trump takes all the credit when things go right, but none of the blame when things go wrong.
Like Mussolini, Trump is what Umberto Eco called "a beehive of contradictions."
Like Mussolini, Trump lacks any philosophy: he has only rhetoric.
Like Mussolini, Trump gives the impression of talking directly to the people, while presuming to speak for them.
Like Mussolini, Trump pretends to be an expert on every subject while in reality being incredibly incompetent and uninformed.
Like Mussolini, Trump is closer to a Mafia don or gang lord than a democratic leader.
Like Mussolini, Trump has had multiple wives, several mistressses and scores of adulterous affairs.
Like Mussolini, Trump is working to strengthen laws against abortions, forcing girls and women to bear children they don't want or can't afford.

Here's an eerie coincidence: Mussolini appointed his son-in-law as foreign minister; Trump has appointed his son-in-law as his primary foreign minister in the Middle East, the source of 9-11 and two bloody, trillion-dollar wars.

Other Parallels

They both were "problem children" and bullies who were sent to boarding schools as young men.
They both were megalomaniacs, obsessed with themselves.
They both had books published.
They both denounced military interventions, only to later advocate and order military interventions.
They both had children before they were married.
They both had affairs while married.
They both organized disparate right-wing groups into a cohesive political force.
They both blamed their nations' economic problems on other nations that acted unfairly.
They both advocated an aggressive foreign policy to arrest a purported national decline.
They both painted a picture of a society in crisis that needed a strong leader to save it (i.e., them).
They both stoked racial animosities and grievances of the majority against minorities.
They both favored the "stick" over the "carrot" in dealing with unwanted "inferior" people.
They both favored deportation of "inferior" people.
They both saw darker-skinned people as "inferior" to white people.
They both enlisted working-class voters against the left.
They both mocked people they perceived as weak.
They both glorified strength, power and "winning at all costs."
They both claimed that only they could restore order and "save" their nations.
They both became cults of one.
They both denounced legitimate presses while employing propaganda lavishly themselves.
They both demanded public displays of loyalty (in Trump's case, everyone saluting the flag during the national anthem).
They both called for large sums of money to be spent on public works.
They both supported their nation's dominant religion and were supported in return by religious leaders and their flocks.
They both used the term "love" while sowing discord, hatred and intolerance.
They both were wildly inconsistent; they said whatever suited "the mood of the moment."
They both had no time or use for scruples.
They both were patently unfit to hold any office, yet held the highest office nonetheless.
Trumpism is eerily similar to fascism.


So for now we are fucked. After we ditch Trump, and as a direct result, we may be in better shape than ever to kill the cancer the Republican party has been on our country. But we still have to force the Democrats to start standing what the things they have been advertising all along instead of merely the lighter, more secretive version of corporatism.

The Democrats won't survive this election. The DNC will cheat Bernie bad, or Bernie will nomination : Either way Trump 2020.

Trump changed America Permanently. Obama is now too far right for Democrats.

Patrick, don't take this as a knock on the site, but this thread has turned into a dumpster fire.... jesus. Everyone does realize no minds are going to be changed? I kind of thought the point of the thread was political humor. Post something humorous. We can agree or disagree if it's funny. This has now officially (more so than the past comments) become a divisive party line "I'm better than you, and you suck" thread.

@Patrick, why not a 24 hour maximum 5-post limit in this thread?

That way when somebody goes on a freakout or rage-filled bender, it doesn't end up with endless unfunny memes. And then I don't feel obligated to respond tit-for-tat. hahaha

I could see anyone saying that who would watch Fox Fairytales etc. That is a whole different world with realities coming out of their asses.—according to their wealthy libertarian sponsors.

But Trump’s changes better not last, I pray that the propaganda isn’t nearly effective enough for that.

I don't always agree with TPB. I may be stepping out of bounds site rules wise, but I sometimes think he's a bit looney. BUT, he also has valid opinions that most the time are reasonable, if not correct. And if/when I disagree, I'll ask a question. Same with Marcus. Same with you (which I think I'm on your ignore list).

Discourse can be tense but also polite. You will receive what you put out. If you act a fool that's how people will treat you. This thread has devolved into foolishness.

Even someone not running for fucks sake! Tell us what you want and NOT mention Trump in it!

The problem is I think they like Trumps policy, they don't like his demeanor and personality. Which I'd actually agree with. Trump is a cunt. But he's doing something that no politician (he is now) has had the balls to do, hence why he got elected and will again. Nerds and wimps despise him. This is anecdotal fact.

We know you already have been armed with juicy attacks and the latest Russian memes against everyone who dare stand against GOP from FB and wherever.

It’s too bad that as things are currently, all that hilarious ammo is going to waste. The loss of entertainment value must really be frustrating.

2 or 3 of us have been denying you “attack dominance” for a few days here and you fascist comedians are already crying about it.

Go to your GOP channels and learn how glorious Trump has paved all our streets with gold, because if Trump gets the infrastructure package you won’t even be able to afford using the fucking streets any more.

A Vermont Socialist, a Gay Mayor of a 3rd Tier City*, and a frumpy Minnesota Woman leading the pack so far. Trump better look out.

* Sorry, if you asked 100 people to name 10 US cities, lucky if South Bend was mentioned once. Really an exurb/satellite city. He must be the Deep State Candidate, the could-be-anybody candidate.

That seems reasonable to me. I can see it's distracting to have a very active hate-filled thread on the home page, but once you know that's what it's about, why bother to look at it again?

The best solution to bad ideas is to ignore them. Replying or talking about them gives them free advertising.

I'm open to ideas about how to change the site though.
