This thread is for civilly discussing politics.

Keep in mind the site rules apply in this thread and will be enforced, especially Rule 0; that means this is not a place to be insulting people or shouting about how you hate some identity group.

This thread is also for discussion, not posting garbage to see what catches fire. Shitposting, baiting, and the like will be treated rather harshly.

Do not “blind link”; if you link to an external source, include a summary of its contents, especially if linking to a long video or audio clip.

This thread will have people disagreeing with you. Don’t take offense just from that or try to control them, and especially don’t report just for that (report abuse is a Rule 6 violation and isn’t taken lightly).

TL;DR: No insults, no ethnic/racial/etc. putdowns, no shitposting/baiting, no back-seat moderating, and we’re not expecting a vicar’s tea party, but we do expect a certain level of self control.

I would also ask for citations or evidence if you are arguing for something that you think is correct. And no this doesn’t mean anything from fox news or msnbc or hell just about any news source. it has to come from an accredited research place with ACTUAL facts. Not just facts but also how they got the data itself.

This should hopefully keep politics out of the vent thread.

So… will Trump’s wall ever actually go up? Apparently Trump insisted to the president of Mexico that yes, Mexico is paying for that wall! = o And this is just three days ago.

So those vouchers Seattle is using seem like a legit good idea, a way for voters to help level the playing field with big companies, for clarity, they are offering vouchers that amount to 100$ to all citizens that can be donated to the campaigns of politicians, it’s not quite a perfect solution but better than nothing,

So, I’m gonna say it, I feel like Sargon Of Akkad might be my least favorite YouTuber ever. He’s politically illiterate, yet has a massive following, so he spreads all sorts of misinformation.

I’m not sure if he’s deliberately dishonest or just ignorant.

He believes that “Cultural Marxism” is a real threat, believes that “mass migration” is class warfare against the poor, and thinks centre-left social democracy is Communism.

All this while he claims to be a centre-leftie who just wants to improve the left while he supports Hayekian and Thatcherite economics, and also supported numerous Right Wing goons like Trump, Marie Le Pen, and Theresa May. Most of his subscribers are Right Leaning as well.

I mean, if I claimed to be a Right Winger who just wanted to improve the Right, while saying the things that I do, people here would think I was fucking ridiculous. Yeah, Hypnosryan, the Right Wing Jill Stein/Melenchon/Jeremy Corbyn Supporter, imagine that.

I’m not sure if he has.

Well the fact of the matter is that most of academia is controlled by those that believe in trigger warnings, social justice, and other things. So it is not surprising that people would feel this way. And as for the mass migration….it IS a problem not for the poor but for EVERONE if they don’t assimilate into their new “home”. That is the main problem everyone has with mass migration.
