    Because the genuine news outlets all sound like satire now. As in you can't make this shit up.

    Let's play guess the satire:

    "Iranian Ayatollah mocks US over handling of Charlottesville racism"

    "Trump's business council had 'decided to disband before Trump claimed he had disbanded it"

    "Democrats looking to set up expert panel on Donald Trump's mental health"

    "Donald Trump, while defending neo-Nazis, managed to find time to discuss his huge house"

    "Donald Trump wipes $5.7bn off the value of Amazon with single tweet"

    "The winery Donald Trump claims to own has denied having anything to do with him"

    "Donald Trump removes law protecting buildings from floods and sea-level rise"

    "Donald Trump's lawyer makes collage of himself with black people to show he isn't racist"

    Most of these are just media lies. He never defended Neo-Nazis, Hillary was offered a plea deal by the DOJ, them setting up something like that is a last ditch effort to do something, and for the rest (actually all of them), where's the proof? If you show me the proof I will not deny it.

    Your defensiveness when it comes to a point that was literally just about headlines is telling.

    Trump doesn't need to outspokenly denounce Nazis when he is one.

    I don't agree with Crowder on a lot of points (such as painting all the Unite the Right protesters as Nazis when only a small group were), but you should watch it. Using the word Nazi so non-nonchalantly takes any meaning out of it.

    Ignoring the rise of fascism cost 85 million lives last time. Eat shit, Neville Chamberlain.

    Shoot the appeasers.

    You dislike fascism, but you want to shoot people that you disagree with? Something doesn't add up...

    Destroying fascists isn't fascism - fascism is defined by right wing ideology and nationalism - it's more like planetary chemo.

    And the list of 'people I disagree with' is so large that removing them would probably reverse global warming. A simple gulag will do for most.

    Fascism /ˈfæʃɪzəm/ is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and control of industry and commerce

    It's not just right wing, it's both left wing and right wing. I myself consider Hitler only slightly right of center, considering that he was a socialist (and due to that really should be on the left). Removing people you disagree with, as in, forcible suppression of opposition, is part of fascism.

    lol

    lol

    1. I'm not suggesting we remove all people I disagree with.
    2. Fascists aren't people.
    3. Hate preachers aren't political opposition.
    4. I'm not saying deal with them as a government or established body. I'm saying get drunk and lynch the Nazis.
    5. Again lol.

    I will repeat it. Removing people you disagree with, as in, forcible suppression of opposition, is part of fascism. But I think you are just being silly and not serious

    Yes and no... any newly elected regime having to deal with a hostile establishment will want to carry out purges, irrespective of the political leaning. In Trump's case I think the problem was that he didn't clear them out fast enough and they quickly reformed, newly emboldened and using silicon valley goons to shut down free speech and dissolve his voter base. If he really were a Nazi he would have been far more efficient in shutting them out.

    Also, despite what the media tells people, I think the average person on the street finds Antifa far more threatening than the alt-right. The world today has far bigger problems... there is a horde of flag waving ninjas dressed all in black, hell-bent on cultural vandalism and erasing hundreds or thousands of years of civilisation... and on top of Antifa - you also have Islamic State doing the same thing!

    i think its funny how people will use whatever mental gymnastics is necessary in order for them to be right, regardless of any obvious glaring flaws in what they say

    communism is an economic system, you idiots
    capitalism is an economic system, you idiots
    hitler was a dictator, you idiots
    fascism supersedes any economic system, since it seeks to control society, you idiots


    you throw a claim around like its some proven fact, like bill clinton being a rapist
    http://www.snopes.com/was-hillary-c...-deal-in-server-investigation-in-august-2017/
    one anonymous source? "clinton lawyer"?? dude come on, might as well believe that donald trump is getting indicted any second now in the super secret fisa court because conservative pundit louise mensch said so!

    also a fun story about stephen crowder: everybody including his teachers in high school hated him because he was a little smug shit. whatever friends he had left after he graduated told him to go fuck himself after he deceptively edited them in a video for the sake of youtube views
    at least you know how to write a joke. but like all jokes its a little bit of a stretch

    Call a Marxist a Stalinist and nobody bats an eyelid.
    Call a capitalist a fascist and everybody loses their minds.

    Gonna need that Discord invite.
