A really good YouTube about looking inward and recognizing the inherent prejudice in believing smollet without evidence, also touches on Covington. Probably more relevant to those that believed the story even as it fell apart.


People are waking up I think. Some, at least.
Something about her recording in her car is just funny to me. So wholesome America

That aside, I have much more respect for her than the thousand "well I always had suspicions but I didn't say anything." Bullshit I saw so many people peddle when Jussie was caught. Just admit you were wrong, you got tricked, Jussie played on your prejudice and next time you will try to do better. You will try to grow.

People would rather portray themselves as smart cowards than admit they were wrong and might have a bias

I'm guessing they plea down to 3 or 4 and run them consecutively for 3-5 years or so, but I'm not a lawyer and base this only on TV shows and throwing darts at the wall.

I'm more curious about federal charges.
The potential terroristic anthrax threat is a lot more serious than lying to cops about a fistfight.

That probably automatically puts you on a whole set of lists, like the no-fly list.
Have fun travelling between Chicago and Hollywood by train going forward :)

(he won't go on the no-fly list, but you agree it would be hilarious if he did? )

They do a well enough job painting themselves as racist by wearing a hat that dismisses historic suffering lying at the core of this nation's founding. How could you possibly wear a hat that says, "Make America Great Again" and not be a racist?
No one attacked leftists wearing political obama paraphernalia while being a certain skin color but you get stories everyday of leftists attacking people because of a maga hat and people being literally attacked by the left media for being white so yes everyone can see where the hate and racism is coming from.
Fun fact Maga hats are not a symbol of hate but they sure as fuck reveal hate from others.

Obama sponsored the sale of racially charged paraphernalia that excused historic racism and exalted racist mythology?

Things aren't racially charged just because you and your NPC pals say they are.

"NPC" is an alt-right term. Are you a member of the alt-right?
I am not alt-right and I unironically think the NPC meme is both and accurate and also a hilarious description of the crazy left.

I think you are so angry about this meme because deep down you know and recognize it does apply to yourself.

Because it is a racist statement? Do you think black people have ever thought America was great? Or indigenous people? No trolling here, bro. Just facts. :\
Yes, because when they came up with the slogan they clearly were only using it to reference the times when all the native people had their land taken from them. It had nothing to do with trying to fix current issues regarding trade, foreign policy, etc.

Because its a stupid hat with a stupid slogan that has been used by other politicians.

Not my problem you assign a false interpretation to a dumb hat.

I can't see the 16 counts sticking. 1 for each crime he said was perpetrated against him and for each officer he told it to (2). So 8 crimes to 2 officers for 16 counts.

But, if he is guilty he should be sent away for however long is possible.
That's the shit that Mueller's team pulled with a fucking campaign intern and paraded about like it was revealing "corruption".

Either a lie is a crime or it isn't.

Thinking all black and indigenous people think the same way is racism. Thinking they all think exactly what you want them to think only amplifies the inherent evilness of your thought process.

@DaForest, I think you're projecting here buddy, the "Make America Great Again" slogan was just a clever motto thought up (or reused to be precise])by Trump's PR team, this man would once again make America great that's the message they were shooting for...

I'm going to assume you're trolling, but calling the NPC meme alt- right ironically makes you seem all the more like what the meme is making fun of... an NPC.

One could say you're missing Daforest...for the trees:messenger_smirking:

I don’t know where the hate aspect of maga comes in. Unless it is projection or just a false narrative. Not that I’m a trumper but I’ve always taken MAGA to mean making America successful again. Mostly from an economic angle.
It's weaponize partisan games. A bunch of people that are bigots or racists wear the hat, and the propagandists try to label the entire existence of it as that. Yet a group on the authoritarian left does the very same thing, and it's an isolated incident.

Rules for thee and all that jazz.

"Police on Saturday arrested a transgender woman they say attacked a white couple in the Bronx and may be behind a series of attacks in upper Manhattan as well.

Investigators say the transgender suspect, who is black, confronted a couple on E. 187th Street near Crotona Avenue in the Bronx. The attacker allegedly approached the couple and asked the woman if she was white before pepper spraying her."

Cue outrage... I mean, cue silence.

Hate of maga:
Villifying it works for Democrats, because it is Trump's slogan.
Vilifying it works for socialists.
Villifying it works for intersectionalists.
Villifying it works for globalists.

America, and its deep rooted love of its constitution [especially the 1st and 2nd], rugged individualism, American exceptionalism, etc. Is a bulwark against many of these idealogies, so anything representing nationalism must be torn down and vilified. That's why America, long called a melting pot and 'the land of opportunity' is suddenly smeared as a racist hellhole by those peddling certain idealogies.

We see this across Europe as well, where identity is often presented as the most important thing in the world... except national identity, of course, which is painted as racism.

The Democrats have long sided with the rest of America in loving this country, but overwhelming hate of everything Trump, with flames fanned by a fully partisan media and a 'deplorable' campaign by HRC have caused half the country to view conservatives and this country as morally bankrupt. At the same time, every idealogy that hates America has used this Trump hate as cover to infiltrate the democratic party and push their own agendas, which explains all of the nonsense going on right now with socialism,anti-semitism, etc. We are in the middle of a culture war and shaming [and scaring] one side into silence is one of the strategies being used.
