Meh... former Republican who became independent after W because I just couldn't agree with the social stances of the party anymore (but still voted for Romney, which admittedly was the wrong choice in hindsight as Obama killed it in his second term)

But who's counting?

And wtf does this have to do with Macron and ratings?
i think it was probably because i (as an honorary Frenchie) had just criticised his beloved Trump, and he suddenly had a brainwave and tried to be clever

Je ne parle pas français.

Le macaroon probably has an abysmal rating because that's the times. Not that he deserves a good one. Name me a leader whose popularity has stuck. There are very few.

I think he touched on a strong point. I look at these photos of the rally and fuck me it's a bunch of young adults. They weren't alive during WW2 (obviously) so how would they even know the horror, madness, and hatred that was spreading across Europe.

It may be a reason why history tends to repeat itself in some ways. Once a generation dies off, so do some of its lessons

We really should just split the country up. We had a nice run, but it's time we went our separate ways.

You're getting more and more balkanized by the day.

This quote probably best summarizes the main issue at hand:

Quote:
But again, the media is so primed to — well, it’s all about the evil on one side. It’s a totally unbalanced presentation of what I suspect the facts were. I suspect that leftist groups bused in a bunch of thugs so the leftist media could beat this narrative about evil. I’m not saying the white groups weren’t evil, but it’s a media construct, and it’s unfortunate we can’t talk about real things and real issues.

"Obama set race relations back!" "Obama divided the country on race!" So many people whine about that, but you never hear an actual example.

Maaaaaybe someone will say it's because he dared to acknowledge an existing racial divide that a lot of Americans refuse to see. Because bootstraps and Chicago is a war zone and welfare, or something.

Oh they provide plenty of "examples".

He didn't call Black Lives Matters a hate group.

He said Trayvon Martin could have been his son.

And on and on.

Seriously. When the right complains about issues this country's facing, we have to take their feelings into account, but the moment black people (or any other minority group that's faced decades/centuries of discrimination) bring up the issues they've experienced in this country, they're making a big deal out of nothing, or they're trying to stir people up and divide us, or other BS like that, and they should just suck it up and move on. 'Cause their feelings aren't important.

There is so much stupid in that Vox link I don't even know where to begin. To say nothing of the "false flag"/"Soros funded this" nonsense. How detached from reality do you have to be to honestly buy into that shit? For a political party/affiliation that complains constantly about people playing the victim card, the right sure does seem to love to pull it out themselves quite often, don't they?

What I want to say about Trump right now could possibly get me arrested so I'm not going to say it.

His comments echoed Sean Hannity, especially the references to the "alt-left". This is where that is coming from.

What a fucked up time to be alive.
