    Jesus fucking Christ. Tucker Carlson just compared blaming Trump for getting covid to blaming a sexual assault victim.

    How in the fuck does this man still have a fucking platform?

    Unfortunately, many people in America need re-education training. And I'm not talking about some sort of fascist doctrine that they need to learn to follow under threat of death. I'm talking we need to increase their IQ so they can think for themselves and not have some preppy heir to the Swanson fortune struggle to think for them on live television.

    This conversation is over, its off topic and I'm not debating with some one who can't even see the problem with the AFD.
    You're still ignoring how conservative politicians who were afraid of the left got rid of checks and balances as they thought they could control Hitler. While a big part of the population was enthusiastic for Hitler, a lot of them weren't. The german population was deeply divided. Hitler wasn't elected to be supreme leader, it was a coup with the help of conservatives, to install business friendly conservative politics and get rid of the left... Somehow reminiscent of another nation right now.

    And while there is still some resentment against germans, it vastly depends on the country. The UK is not a good example for european feelings towards germany.

    And ... aren't you British? In that case i wouldn't really start with debts owed to humanity due to the past..

    So, I had a bit of a macabre thought: A lot of MAGA cultists I've seen have argued all the COVID deaths don't really count since most of the dead were old and had comorbidities and were going to die eventually anyways. Using their logic, if Trump does end up dying from COVID, will his death not really count since he was old and had comorbidities and was going to die eventually anyways?

    Iirc he and Melania have already been added to Florida's COVID count since they are both officially residents of that wretched hive of scum and villainy, we must be cautious.

    Because Fox is trash propaganda. It's also fucking hilarious how the right are clutching their pearls over "oh look at everyone else being happy he got the rona, how awful", when he has actively harmed the US people and the rest of the world with his garbage. His whiny arse followers can fuck right off.

    Before you tastelessly joke about Trump’s health, please consider:

    The jokes about Hillary’s health
    Forced sterilization
    Mocking a physical disability
    Saying Biden’s “hiding in a basement”
    421 bills repealing Obamacare
    The “Kung Flu”

    Ok, now that you have some inspiration.....

    They try to frame it as a disagreement over politics when it's not that. It's about the real harm that Trump has done to people and the country. Trying to say this is about politics is just dishonest.

    People aren't mocking Trump getting coronavirus because they hate his tax policy or hate his foreign policy, we're mocking him because he did real harm to real people with his coronavirus denialism. And not just in America either, his bullshit hurt people all over the world as he is the leading source of coronavirus disinformation.

    That's easy, he panders to white supremacists. It's rather profitable.

    you can force people to vote but you can't force them to make an informed vote. if someone doesn't vote it should just be counted as a null vote that lets all sides know that they're not managing to convince these people that there's somebody worth voting for
    a lot of people are very jaded about politics these days, there's been far too many unfulfilled promises, revelations of corruption (not to mention getting away with it) and bigotry and none of the politicians seem to be considering what they can do to reassure people that their promises hold more value than all those previous ones. hell, a large part of the people who originally supported trump claimed to be doing so because he wasn't a politician (he's proved to be at least as corrupt and untrustworthy as them though) and they were 'protesting the system' or something

    I’ve pointed this out in a very similar argument about US. His fingers can only point in one direction.

    Because he is being treated by doctors, not politicians.

    If... god forbid, as I said many times, him dying would be the worst... but, if he or members of his team die. Do we get to remove a few numbers from those ‘socialist killed X’ memes? You know... since if he listened to the socialist, communist, crazy antifa, they wouldn’t be sick? Does that work that way or do they get added to the capitalism memes? I’m old, not sure on the process of having those memes updated...

    It was certain sorts of doctors who wrote BS to let him skip draft. Not to mention NK style propaganda of him having super genes that could have made him live to 200, and all that. Why isn't he receiving that sort of care, instead of the sort he has never supported?

    Republican Senator Ron Johnson has just tested positive for COVID (although unlike the others, he wasn't at Amy Coney Barrett's nomination last week).

    Maybe the GOP should take this as a sign from above that this abomination of a nomination shall not come to pass.

    This really stinks of an "end of history" viewpoint wherein democratic government is the natural state of things.

    No, hun, Greeks did not "fall into tyranny" - oligarchy and despotism were the norm insofar as government in Classical Greece, with "democracy" being a minority form of government and not particularly democratic at all considering the only people who were voting were propertied male citizens of age.

    Please stop butchering my people's history to fit your narrative.



    Fairly sure they did that because they were men of property looking out for their own interests which democratic government might threaten.

    Said interests primarily having to do with their ability to own other people as property and exploit them for profit. So no - the idea that democracy is this beast that must be guarded against is in fact bougie propaganda.
    Its not boogie properganda, its the foundation of the modern idea of republics, and as republics have lasted far longer than any true democracy has id say there onto something.

    The rights of the individual should always be protected from the will of the people and the malevolence of the state. other wise rights are nothing.
