What I keep hearing from so many of these anti-Trump fuckers is "This president has emboldened racists."

YOU'RE ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY CORRECT!

Because at first, Colin Kapernick was taking a knee to draw attention to the issue of violence and injustice in the black community by the police. And people can disagree on whether or not that's a real thing. The point was to draw attention to it and examine it and get people talking about it more, and it worked. It was cool, I didn't mind it. Some people misunderstood the point of it, but whatever. I was fine with it.

And now... it's "Look at Whitey! Whitey is a terrorist, killing a brown skinned man, plundering what don't belong to him!"

Dear Colin,
Go give yourself a papercut in your dickhole with one of those black power pamphlets you've been reading, you lightskinned talent-less drama queen.
Sincerely, me.

To any jackass legal citizen living in this country who disagrees with the United States whacking that fucking asshole deader than hell, hear this, and Make no mistake about it: He was IN IRAQ! He did not fucking belong there! He was acting in an official capacity as an overt enemy of the United States. If you can't get behind that, then pack your shit and move to an existing functioning REAL communist country where they won't let you speak out in favor of your bullshit self-conceptualized version of communism because it does not jive with ACTUAL Communist policy.

And why is it always rich and semi-famous people attempting to champion this bullshit political philosophy with their tweets? They aren't part of the all-important working class. If we were truly Marxist, you'd SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU WEALTH HOARDING OPPRESSOR.

It's common knowledge that Hezbollah and hamas have always had their differences. Hamas prefers to  bomb jews while Hezbollah insists on beheading them. That coupled with a disagreement at their last meeting over a camel between leaders has left their relations rocky at best.

They used to just "accidentally" leave Tulsi and Yang off their charts entirely.

Speaking of CNN, they just paid the kid grinning with the maga hat on 275 million. A recap of that whole debacle:

Well then. Wonder what happens next.

https://abcnews.go.com/International/iran-launches-missiles-us-air-bases-iraq-us/story?id=68130625

"Pentagon confirms Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. forces in Iraq"

"A U.S. official confirms to ABC News that ballistic missiles have been fired from inside Iran at multiple U.S. military facilities inside Iraq on Wednesday morning, local time."

"A Defense Department statement said they are still working on initial damage assessment."

Astounding. The final tweet in this thread links to a blog chronicling instances of MSNBC/CNN/etc. omitting Yang (and sometimes Tulsi) from their charts.


https://twitter.com/EricRWeinstein/status/1214646270364504066


I knew it had happened a few times, but damn. It's obscenely blatant.
