Why am I not surprised that a GOP senate nominee who said homosexuality was evil had relationships with underage girls?
Because don't you know that today's GOP is all about hypocrisy? They scream and shout about what a bad Christian you are if you are attracted to someone of the same sex, until they themselves get caught in something that is actually disgusting like sexual assoult and child molestation. But no they are GREAT Christians! Please excuse me while I go vomit! The GOP is truly fucked up. I hope that Tuesday's results are an indication of what's to come in the 2018 midterm elections.

WSJ: Flynn & Son met with Turkish government officials over $15 kidnapping and rendition plot... during transition.

Flynn's would have kidnapped Turkish cleric from US and flew him to island where Turkey would take custody, in exchange for a large cash payment.

This would be after election, before Flynn's firing, and most importantly, before Trump asked Comey to drop investigation because "Flynn's a nice guy"

Maybe if they offered him more than $15, he would've done it, too.

Flynn's son is dumb as a rock and arrogant to boot. Definitely the weak link here.

I thought this was kind of an April Fools post, to flush out the gullible perhaps. I really did.
So I read the paper. I'm mystified that the world has become such a poorly written political disaster movie. Am I Truman? Is this all even real?

Flynn not the big story

Why did TP step down after the initial indictments?

Is DB trying to get out ahead of what's to come and salvage her party. Create distance between the party and HRC

This is what Hannity, Breitbart, your alter, and Trump would like you to believe.

Don’t look here, look over there Hillary tampering uranium email benghazi.

It's funny how people who were banned always try to find a way back in.

Do you really want posters who create alters named lbgtbbq in here? Do you really think these are folks that want to engage in conversation?

Yeah that one was just a troll. I actually got a lot out of hearing Oregoropa's observations, and others with similar views. I never saw anything abusive etc from him.
It's different for me, being so removed geographically and politically. As much as I genuinely care about the state of the US and its politics, it is naturally a little less personal for me. So I accept I would react differently to those like yourself who watched the election result in horror, knowing it would genuinely change the life of yourself and/or those you care about.

I never saw whatever altercation led to Oregoropa's banning. Not sure what happened to AEON either - again I enjoyed his perspective if for nothing else it educated me a little as to how others think.

Did any one thing happen with AEON? Or was it just enough Nazi sympathizing is enough?


Also, this nonsense where Trump supporters smash their keurigs because keurig pulled their ads from during Hannity’s show is pretty hilarious. They’re all gonna be so mad come tomorrow morning when they can no longer make coffee.

Not sure what you find so fascinating/enjoyable about a fascist sympathising perspective.

Why so defensive Vlad? The "fascist sympathising perspective" encompasses tens of millions of people in the US, more around the rest of the world. None of whom I know personally. You think it's healthier for me or anyone else to not understand the alternative view, however much I might dislike/disagree with it?
Are they all horrible people? Are they all child abusers, or sadists, or rascists, or homophobes? Yes there are some fucked up views, as I see it. Some truly are despicable. Most, I suspect, are decent people who would be as human and compassionate to me or my family in a moment of need as any democrat.
Perhaps you could enlighten me with the benefits of living in an echo chamber?

There's really no defensiveness in my post. Oreganoropa was found on Reddit and it demonstrated that he had blatant far-right views - whilst crying about how this board is largely liberal leaning. Others can effectively elaborate more on this. AEON, added very little to the discourse other than making excuses for fascists and refusing to condemn them in any real way. We can see these views all over the internet, what is the value of having them here? That some of us don't want this shit here does not suggest we're living in some 'echo chamber', I don't see eye to eye with many of the folks here but the discussion is much more worthwhile when there is unanimous agreement on basic points (general anti-racism/sexism etc. pro-LGBT rights) - instead of wasting time with someone who simply won't denounce fascism.
