I don't think that's it. I see plenty of educated people who buy into this type of stuff from either side all the time.

I think it speaks far more to the power of tribalism mentality that is still very much a part of our DNA even though most of us would not want to admit or even believe how much we have in common with our pre-electricity-age ancestors.

I think that an unexpected side effect of what we've turned the internet into has become an extremely anti-societal means of regressing back to our cave man roots of tribalistic mentality.

I'm beginning to see that for the most part, at least among people of our own relative level of power and influence, there is no bad intent. Even when the insults and vitriol are coming out in full force. Everybody deep down wants to believe that they're the good guy. People in general are also very easily manipulated.

I think these reasons are much closer to the truth when trying to explain why most people will believe any headline they read that come from news sources that tend to say what they want to hear, and why they don't do any additional research of their own on the subject and oftentimes don't even read the entire articles.

Hundreds of Children Rot in the Desert. End Trump’s Draconian Policies.
The administration created this crisis.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/01/opinion/migrant-children-tent-city-
texas.html


Instead, the Trump administration’s own draconian policies are to blame. Around the same time that it began separating immigrant children from their parents as they crossed into the United States, the Department of Homeland Security also established strict new requirements for the relatives and friends who might care for these children while their cases are sorted out. Prospective sponsors are now required to submit fingerprints, and to share their information with federal immigration officers. Because most of them are undocumented immigrants themselves, they have been scared off by these new requirements. And with good cause: So far, dozens of applicants who took the chance of applying to be sponsors have been arrested on immigration charges.

As would-be sponsors shrink away, more of unaccompanied children are left stranded in federal custody.

Long before Trump campaigned on a nationalist, anti-immigrant platform, Pat Buchanan paved the way with his 'America First' campaigns. But there's a catch: Trump denounced Buchanan as being a bigot.

1. There is NOTHING wrong with Nationalism.

2. He didn't run on an anti-immigrant platform. He ran on an anti-illegal-immigrant platform.

Your attempt at calling Trump out on hypocrisy here is based on a false equivalency.




The EU is most likely going to fade away because of this very problem. Thank you Hungary for standing up for yourselves, and thanks to other Eastern Bloc countries for backing them up.



The EU is going to be a lonely place in a couple of years with only a few countries remaining, if it isn't entirely dissolved.

What you claim there is nothing wrong with was described as racist by Trump in the 90's. What you fail to understand is that Trump adopted Pat Buchanans' racist protectionist platform hook line and sinker after he denounced it as stupid, racist and much more.

And what you further don't realize because you're a dummy is that Trump is a flim flam man playing you like a fiddle.

Do you know how to immediately prove who belongs to who? We're not just talking about a handful of kids here. Imagine giving away children to anybody who claimed that they were the parents only to find out down the road that you just gave thousands or more of them to predators or sex traffickers.

I don't think this is going to be an overnight process, and if you would throw aside your partisanship and actually think about the well being of the children you should be able to see how this is not a simply black and white issue at this point.

The American Nazi Party (ANP) is a far-right American political party founded by George Lincoln Rockwell. Its headquarters are in Arlington, Virginia. Rockwell founded the organization as the World Union of Free Enterprise National Socialists (WUFENS), but renamed it the American Nazi Party in 1960.

Okay. So we have a fringe right wacko cult of Nazi LARPers out there in Virginia. Plenty of people on the fringes on both sides. I guaranty you wouldn't have even known about them right now if this were 1990 and there wasn't an internet to do a search on them.

To my point... How many times have I heard that Trump voters are Nazis? Not even on the whole of the internet, but just in the RWED in the last two years?

Are there 63 Million members of the ANP in America today then?

The U.S. Detention of Children Is Only Getting Worse
No longer forcibly separating families at the border, the Trump Administration has merely changed the way children are harmed.

This is a manufactured crisis. The number of migrants apprehended in early 2018 is comparable to the previous five years. The real difference is that apprehensions of families with children and unaccompanied children have increased as a proportion of the total.

How Trump Is Trying — And Failing — To Get Rich Off His Presidency

In not divesting, Trump set himself up so that his actions, and those of people who engage with his businesses, present perpetual conflicts of interest — or the appearance of them. Meanwhile, if he’d liquidated, paid capital gains tax on his entire fortune and created a blind trust to invest it all in the booming stock market, Trump would be $500 million richer than he is today — without the headaches.

His net worth, by our calculation, has dropped from $4.5 billion in 2015 to $3.1 billion the last two years, knocking the president 138 spots lower on the Forbes 400.

Quote:

You know exactly what I'm saying- SHIT

I think I know what you're saying, but it's not what you think you're saying*.

As far as what the word "Nazi" means ... You can't just use words however you feel like because:

1) Nobody will be able to understand you. The power of language is that we can have a COMMON understanding of what the words mean. If you get rid of that, you get rid of communication.

2) Sloppy words promote sloppy thinking.

So, what does "Nazi" mean? Does it mean any group with a genocidal program? If it did, then we would have called the Hutus "Nazis" when they slaughtered the Tutsis, or the Khmer Rouge when they slaughtered Cambodians.

So, it doesn't mean any group with genocidal program.

Does it apply only to WHITES who want to genocide non-whites? If that were the case, then we would have called the Founding Fathers (and their successors) "Nazis" when they slaughtered so many Native Americans.

Does it apply to post-WWII events where whites kill non-whites? If that were the case then we would have called Kissinger or Madeline Albright "Nazis".

IMHO, the word "Nazi" applies fairly narrowly to groups which claim more of the "Nazi" heritage than just racism, which includes a system of ECONOMICS and NATIONALISM as well as RACIAL PURITY. There are other words that better-describe the aims and goals of some of these American groups; white-supremacist for those whose aim is primarily racial purity. I don't follow these groups closely; MAYBE some of them have adopted the entire "Nazi" philosophy but of the ones I've heard of they seem mostly about white supremacy.

*What I understand you saying is that you hate certain groups and so you reach for the most-evocative word you can think of ... one that brings to mind cattle-cars, death-camps, gas chambers, and rank-upon-rank of marching soldiers ... to describe them, whether it fits or not.

What the reactionary, authoritarian, illiberal, regressionist, extreme Left has done in the last few years is completely devalued the word Nazi.

People just laugh when they're called a Nazi now, and people laugh at idiots who use the word to describe other people. And now it's not only the people being called Nazis that have learned to laugh it off, but the independents and center left are starting to jump on board as well.

Let him keep misusing the word if he doesn't want to learn. He's already destroyed any meaning it once had. It's going to be a pretty lonely place for him once the independents and center left start actively and vocally distancing themselves from his clan.

A leading Holocaust historian just seriously compared the US to Nazi Germany
“If the US has someone whom historians will look back on as the gravedigger of American democracy, it is Mitch McConnell.”
https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/10/5/17940610/trump-hitle
r-history-historian


Browning, a professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina, specializes in the origins and operation of Nazi genocide. His 1992 book Ordinary Men, a close examination of how an otherwise unremarkable German police battalion evolved into an instrument of mass slaughter, is widely seen as one of the defining works on how typical Germans became complicit in Nazi atrocities.

So when Browning makes comparisons between the rise of Hitler and our current historical period, this isn’t some keyboard warrior spouting off. It is one of the most knowledgeable people on Nazism alive using his expertise to sound the alarm as to what he sees as an existential threat to American democracy.

Here’s a troubling story out of Texas. Democrat Mike Siegel is running against Rep. Michael T. McCaul (R) in Texas’s 10th district. This evening I saw a tweet from Siegel which said: “Just learned that my field director was arrested while delivering our letter. He told police he was working for me and the officer asked, “what party is he?” Now Jacob is under 48 hour investigatory detention in Waller County.”

That didn’t seem right, especially the part about getting arrested after being asked what party he’s affiliated with. So I managed to get Siegel on the phone to get some more details.

In the 10th district, there’s a historically black university called Prairie View A&M University. There’s a long history of the local county government (Waller County) trying to prevent the students there from voting. There was even a big Supreme Court case about it in 1979. This year local officials have put a new set of obstacles in the way of the students voting.

I'm curious how you advocate dealing with these troublesome 'Nazis'. Are trials for belonging to the 'wrong' political party or expressing the 'wrong' political ideas in order? Hangin' too good for 'em? Mob violence for anyone rumored to belong?

"mob violence" tweets the Fox parrot. I keep seeing that montage of GOP dementia patients and Fux talking heads saying "mob violence" over and over. How tiny your brain must be!

Curious: Do you get directives every day or are you able to choose your own after years of servitude? Can you make up your own propaganda or are you only allowed to select from the list they give you?

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CARRIED OUT THOUSANDS MORE FAMILY SEPARATIONS THAN PREVIOUSLY ACKNOWLEDGED

There's no logical reason for it. They just want to be evil.

Forced adoptions of children are listed as genocide under section 2e of the Convention on the prevention and punishment of the crime of genocide.

I wonder what genocide by drone strike was classified as.

Wouldn't be on your radar because that was brown people half a world away though, huh?

There is no mention of 'forced adoptions' in your linked article, or in any of its links.

Why do you feel the need to lie by insinuation?

But when Obama deported 300,000 people - separating 20,000 children born in the US from illegal immigrant parents - it was OK? (links provided multiple times elsewhere)

How the Trump family sold U.S. foreign policy to the highest bidder
http://www2.philly.com/philly/columnists/will_bunch/trump-tower-kushne
r-saudis-uae-qatar-nader-20180520.html


Today marks the 16-month anniversary of Donald Trump becoming the 45th president of the United States, and nowhere has our unlikeliest commander-in-chief placed a greater stamp on America's place in the world than his dramatic — and sometimes arbitrary and capricious, or so it seems — shifts in foreign policy. None of these seismic changes seemed more baffling than last spring's abrupt sellout of the Persian Gulf state of Qatar — a longtime ally where the U.S. Air Force Central Command and its 10,000 American troops are now based.

But suddenly, like the remarkable mid-speech policy reversal that occurs in George Orwell's 1984, we were, in a sense, at war with Qatar. We had always been at war with Qatar.

How to make sense of a 180-degree shift in policy that seemed so counter to U.S. interests in the region? A few months later, people who suspect the worst about Trump and his minions learned a possible motive that was almost too cynical to comprehend. Not long before Team Trump switched gears on Qatar, key officials from the emirate had met with Charles Kushner — father of Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared, who's in charge of Trump's Middle East portfolio — to discuss a massive Qatar-funded bailout of 666 Fifth Ave., the debt-laden Manhattan skyscraper that was threatening to sink the Kushner family real estate empire. But the Qataris rejected the deal — just weeks before the policy about-face. Whatever actually happened, the appearance was simply awful.

It also seems not to have been the full story. This weekend, the New York Times published a stunning report about a plan floated by a longtime emissary for the Saudis and the UAE in early August 2016, when Trump had just grabbed the GOP nomination but faced an uphill campaign against Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump Jr., aide Stephen Miller and Erik Prince, founder of the notorious mercenary outfit once know as Blackwater, listened intently as the emissary offered Team Trump millions of dollars in assistance, including a covert social-media campaign, to help Trump win that would be run by a former Israeli spy who specializes in psychological warfare, or psywar.

"The emissary, George Nader, told Donald Trump Jr. that the princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win election as president," the Times reported. Some key elements — exactly who was behind the plan, and what parts, if any, were carried out — remain murky.

Trumps chief of staff gets into two altercations with other White House staff outside the Oval Office twice in a week. The one today had to be broken up by the Secret Service. What a fucking mess Trump creates whenever he touches anything.
