If you don't have any boundaries you'll just turn into Dave Rubin. The most cursed man.

Also don't let him moderate a debate either:

I've actually posted a bunch of clips from him recently but the highlight I saw in terms of being terrible was he claimed to be pro-choice but did such a terrible job defending that position when he was debating Ben Shapiro. I don't actually believe if you do a good job you can really convince certain people either but his attempt was still weak.

We pose this question to our children
That calls them all to stray
And live in tiny houses
Of the same mistakes we make

'Cause there are too many of us
In tiny houses here and there
Passing out somewhere
But you won't care

White supremacist praised at GOP rally. Wouldn't be surprised if this were a common theme with this group.

Oh god, I'm not sure I love Isobel or hate her. She's such a good reporter. I've watched pretty much all her warzone videos. I always end up depressed or crying.

Great! A Yahoo! ripoff of a Huffington Post story.

The post I quoted had nothing about unemployment rate. But it's OK, I know you have problems focusing and I know you were just making things up again.

You were excited about Kamala, Warren, and Buttigieg? They're all 3 completely different policy-wise, Buttigieg's agenda was completely counter to Warren's agenda, how does that work out as 'exciting' in your mind, I'm guessing identity is what motivates your vote.

Bernie has by far the best list of endorsements of any candidate, everything from Rage Against The Machine, Naomi Klein, AOC & Ilan Omar, Michael Moore, Cornell West, Roger Waters, Killer Mike, Sunrise Movement, American Federation of Teachers, etc. he even has Noam Chomsky, that endorsement alone is good enough for me.

Though Medicare For All isn't just about saving money, it brings my blood to a boil when the only thing mentioned regarding people's wellbeing is 'Muh taxes', Medicare For All is about better outcomes, making sure everyone is treated not based off of how much money they have but who needs it most, living a life of dignity, etc. There's no legitimate argument against Medicare For All anymore (if there is then show me the study you're referring to), universal single-payer healthcare isn't just the right thing to do it's inevitable, it will happen in this country it's just a matter of time, not to generalize entire generations but it's just a matter of fact, as soon as there are less Baby Boomers voting than Millennials/Zoomers there will be a significant shift, and I can't wait.

I don't know, I'm not going to do the dumb old person thing of writing off an entire generation but younger people seem incredibly polarised and I'm not sure how that's going to play out in electoral politics. You have a lot of teenagers who are a lot more left wing but you also have more far-right incl fascist teenagers now which.. I don't recall seeing at all when I was a teenager online a decade ago. There weren't neo-fascists period in fact in any obvious/large number 15 years ago.

People keep going on about Trump and Hitler which is pretty short sighted because Nietzsche and Evola are a lot easier to sell to teenage edgelords esp because of Evola's occultism (also other occultist members of the far-right.) And most are forming their opinions based on YT, memes, and random people they meet online anyway. The other thing is, there isn't any decent push back against this from occultists because of recuperation. I don't really know which video is more relevant to my point.



It's like the alternative was witchblr or something...? 3 years ago. Well I don't even know what's happening on tumblr these days (not that I ever was very active there,) I guess after they banned porn there's tons of Neo-nazis and tradwife blogs now. Also needless to say that kind of thing just seemed pathetic and commercialised so no dice.


lol I just watched this again, like her I can't get over the idea that these people aren't larping. One has a husband named Jeremiah it's like a script someone wrote. I'm from the UK though so I guess in the rural religious US that kind of cliche might exist.

What is actually in opposition to that wave? Well can't predict chaos. I dunno maybe Death Grips. I'm biased after I read the
lyrics
to that one track and saw 'Gothic lemons' though haha ;D something terrible is going to happen with this symbol now knowing my luck. Still entertaining stuff has happened:

Nah that probably peaked with the lemon people from Adventure Time.

Flavor Flav being booted is a remind that, like trump supporters, Bernie Bros don't like independent thought.

I am surprised BootyJudge got out before Super Tuesday. It shows that the DNC got to him. They wanted someone out of the picture so that they can focus on taking down Bernie.


We'll see his back scratched by the DNC real soon.

His clock, like Biden, is about fifteen minutes slow. His fame is up.

it's an effect of the era we live in. Our feelings are so strong about what we don't like, all we want to do is just stamp out that thing we don't like. rationality be damned.

"I don't like X, therefore I will choose Y, Z, or W". I think everyone, to some degree, is ill from that current social trend, not just Nubly.

There was a discussion going on on twitter complaining about music being political and people complaining about that in relation to the Flavor Flav story. Someone said something like 'first Rage Against The Machine now this is anything safe?' did they think that band were apolitical or something? What planet are they living on lol? It's even in the name. I'm not even a fan really I like a couple of their songs this is still obvious to me. What.

People complaining about how nothing is apolitical now in music... Are they like 13? The early 2000s had tons of political music for example in the mainstream, not that long ago.

The big test will be the Coronavirus. If Trump's current plan fails, and the problem gets really big, it'll pave the way for Bernie like a tsunami. The election will be a landslide for extreme medical reforms. Biden will have nothing, as his plan is more of the same old, same old. This is just speculation at this point, though.

Venezuelan activist: Socialist Hugo Chavez implemented what Bernie Sanders talks about

Daniel Di Martino warns against socialism and says America should present

Daniel Di Martino, a native-born Venezuelan freedom activist, had a strong warning for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election -- don't allow what happened to my country happen to yours.

"I was really shocked, when I came to the United State, less than 4 years ago, how the Democratic party went from a party that was supposed to be moderate to a party that embraced the ideas that I fled from," said Di Martino on "Fox and Friends" on Monday.


Di Martino was born in Venezuela in 1999 and left the country in 2016 to attend Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts with honors in Quantitative Economics, according to his website.


He recently wrote an opinion piece for The Daily Wire, telling the story of his grandfather, who immigrated to Venezuela in 1956 from Spain and thrived in the bustling free-market, Venezuelan economy.
"Venezuela in the 1950s was a country that received millions of immigrants from all over the world, such as my grandfather," he said on "Fox and Friends."


"[Venezuela] was prosperous, where even people without education could get a job and prosper," Di Martino explained, "Slowly but surely, socialism destroyed it and turned it into what it is today."


In Fox Nation's "The Unauthorized History of Socialism," Fox News anchor Bret Baier walks viewers through the sad history of Venezuela, and how the country, which used to be the wealthiest in Latin America, has become a failed state.
"The economy imploded and the country has collapsed to the point that it is generating more refugees now than the Middle East, than Syria," said Niall Ferguson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution in the Fox Nation show.

"Venezuelans elected people... that started implementing over-burdening business regulation, that imposed price controls, that nationalized businesses," Di Martino told "Fox and Friends."


"By the time that Venezuelans elected [Hugo] Chavez in 1998, that's when Chavez started implementing what Bernie Sanders talks about -- government-provided housing, government-provided free college, free health care, free everything, food, electricity and that bankrupt our nation," he said.

Di Martino is also featured in an episode of Fox Nation's "No Interruption with Tomi Lahren."
Lahren interviewed Morgan Zegers, founder of Young Americans Against Socialism, who works with immigrants like Di Martino, who fled socialism and want to tell their stories to young potential voters who may be susceptible to the ideology's allure.
Video

"Fox and Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Di Martino if he believes America is going down the path of his native Venezuela.
"I think that many Americans are being deceived in that direction," he said. "Unlike Venezuela, the United States has something that we didn't have -- that is a huge movement that wants to protect the Constitution and defend the history that his country was built upon, which is a history of freedom, it's a history of emancipation, of independence."
