Mass Shootings

Left-Wing Activists Accuse Chelsea Clinton of Causing the New Zealand Shooting

"I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep inside-49 people died because of the rhetoric that you put out there."

|

On Friday, New York University students confronted Chelsea Clinton at a vigil for victims of the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, which claimed the lives of 49 people.

The shooting took place at two mosques. The killer deliberately targeted Muslims, and was motivated by the delusional concerns typical of the far-right white nationalist fringe: Islam invading the West, immigrants replacing the white race, etc.

If you're wondering what this has to do with Chelsea Clinton, you're not alone. And yet, a leftwing activist wearing a t-shirt bearing the slogans "Jobs for all, Medicare for all, college for all, and justice for all" screamed at the former president's daughter.

"This [vigil] right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world," said the activist, a young woman. "I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep inside—49 people died because of the rhetoric that you put out there."

The young woman's friends—most of whom are not visible in the video footage of the encounter—snap their fingers in solidarity.

So, what's going on? Clinton, you may recall, had joined with many in the Democratic Party to criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar (D­­–Minn.) for perceived anti-Semitic remarks. Omar is Muslim, and calling her out has emboldened anti-Islamic sentiment, according to some on the far left. That's the causal chain: Chelsea Clinton urged Omar to be more careful with her rhetoric, this contributed in some way to Islamophobia, and then Christchurch happened.

Needless to say, this is absurd. I'm all for holding the Clinton family accountable, and it's perfectly legitimate to criticize Hillary Clinton for her foreign policies. As a U.S. senator and secretary of state, Clinton was a major proponent of the Iraq War and the intervention in Libya, both of which destabilized the Middle East and caused the deaths of millions of Muslims. But Chelsea Clinton isn't responsible for that, and she certainly isn't responsible for the actions of a deranged white nationalist in New Zealand.

  1. “Omar is Muslim, and calling her out has emboldened anti-Islamic sentiment, according to some on the far left. That’s the causal chain: Chelsea Clinton urged Omar to be more careful with her rhetoric, this contributed in some way to Islamophobia, and then Christchurch happened.”

    This morning, over the dead-tree news and coffee, I ran onto a similar line of ‘reasoning’ which had Trump as the causative agent.
    Those bloody shirts won’t wave themselves.

    1. I just started 6 weeks ago and I’ve gotten 2 check for a total of $2,200…this is the best decision I made in a long time! “Thank you for giving me this extraordinary opportunity to make extra money from home. This extra cash has changed my life in so many ways, thank you!”

    2. That left-wing activist criticized a woman, so she is directly responsible for every rape that happens in the world. How can she live with herself?

      1. Denouncing Jew hatred gets Muslims killed?

        1. Better yet. Criticizing those that denouce Jew hatred all whilst wearing a Bernie 2020 shirt. I’m pretty much betting that this young lady and her cult\followers would argue on just about anything as long is it gives them a platform of some sort.

          1. To the perpetrator’s credit, at least she didn’t come here to NYU and lob her denunciations in the form of inappropriate “satire.” Indeed, it seems somewhat more likely that our nation’s leading criminal “parodist,” rather than Ms. Clinton, should be held responsible for all of the violence we’ve been seeing. After all, it is he who had the nerve to twist words and stir up reputation-damaging controversy here amidst our faculty, with ultimate consequences even beyond NYU, ones that clearly contributed to tipping the balance between ordered liberty and the mayhem we’ve seen spreading across the world. See the documentation at:

    3. It feels,strange to be defending a traitor elitist like Chelsea Clinton.

      1. It’s not a defense of Clinton to note that her critics are ill intentioned idiots.

        She’s a weather vane sort of idiot.

        1. She has at least some of the power of her parents political machine behind her. That makes her somewhat dangerous. But she isn’t in any way responsible for this.

          What a daft idea.

      2. Her mother helped to build this monster.
        Your own monster returning to wreak havoc on your own family is a recurring theme in the genre.

      3. It’s more fun to cook a batch of popcorn and watch the leftists eating their own.

    5. Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

  2. Sorry this is wrong. Chelsea was wrong for accusing Ilhan of ‘trafficking in antisemitism’. Ilhan did nothing of the sort. In so doing, Chelsea gives license to the incels to attack Muslims with the belief that the Jews would approve. We don’t. Ilhan was right that AIPAC exposes our dual loyalty and needs to be debunked. Fortunately that will happen at their conference in DC next week. Should be glorious.

    However the activist doesn’t care a whit about Palestinians. (No one does, to be honest, except me probably.) She cares only about socialism. Her dream is to enact a socialist paradise in the USA and Israel, and that’s why she faked outrage. So basically everyone is faking outrage at ‘islamophobia’ and ‘antisemitism’ and they will cancel each other out. Should be spectacular.

    1. Meh, it’s relatively inexpensive to fly to Jordan for a month and volunteer to help the refugees there. Direct action, y’all.

    2. You are right about Jews not wanting White Supremacists to kill Muslims on their behalf. First off, we don’t want Muslims, or anyone else, to die. Furthermore, even if we did want that, we do our best to eliminate the middle men to make the parking situation easier.

    3. You crazy bro.

      1. If you are worried about your birthrates, please talk to me. I can help you.

        1. If you are worried about your birthrates, please talk to me. I can help you.

          How many hours in a year do you plan to devote to the process?

        2. I dont even get where your non sequitur came from. You crazy.

          1. I dont even get where your non sequitur came from. You crazy.

            I don’t know which baby making parts Dajjal plans to bring to the table. The person with a womb invests at least 9 months in the process. The person with testicles invests at least 1 hour in the process. After the baby is born there is the option of investing 20 to 50 years in child rearing, depending on the culture. With welfare and sperm banks, a family does not need husbands to make babies happen. They just need tax collectors.

            1. “With welfare and sperm banks, a family does not need husbands to make babies happen. They just need tax collectors.”

              Pithy!

            2. 1 hour?

              Really?

              1. Is sharmota4zeb a woman because because that’s every woman’s fantasy of how sex should be even if it’s your partner that you’ve had for years- romantic gestures, cuddling, making out, actual foreplay and then sensitive lovemaking, orgasm and then talk of what the future holds for the two of you. One hour minimum; a whole weekend if done right.

                1. My parents were both math majors. That’s how they met. My dad eventually settled on a career in the construction industry like his father had. My mom used to complain about the punch lists he expected her to write up for him before he started doing anything for her. Different families have different perspectives on romance.

                  😀

                  1. Punch list sex will get one a jail sentence!

            3. 1 hour LOL.

              I can turn that around in 2 minutes. 2 minutes of heaven is better than 1 minute of heaven. Knowhumsayin?

        3. “If you are worried about your birthrates, please talk to me. I can help you”

          You should watch the post apocalyptic movie “A Boy and his Dog”, Before making that statement.

          1. It’s the farm for you.

    4. Too much hate gets fomented in the name of Gazans. The Norwegian equivalent of the attorney general recently decided that tweeting “f***ing Jews are so corrupt” counts as acceptable criticism of Israel.

      1. As did firebombing a synagogue. That was ALSO OK and totally not anti-Semitic.

        Time to realize that in the epic battle of “Who is ruder to whom?”. Islam is running away with the trophy.

    5. I care about the Palestinians, but the situation is largely one created by their own shitty leadership over the last seventy years. The Druze, Bedouin and the Israeli Arabs who make up 26% of the population of Israel have none of those issues.

      1. Yes, it the Palestinians had just gracefully accepted being colonized and subjugated, they could have been living happily in peace on their walled reservations all these years.

        1. They were offered autonomy and nationhood but refused it while continuing to murder Israelis.

          1. They were offered autonomy and nationhood

            No, they weren’t. The most they were ever offered was an archipelago of separated settlements in which to be penned, while Israelis retained the right to keep their settlements and build new settlements on the land in between the Palestinian islands.

            1. Losing sucks, doesn’t it?

              1. Yes, it does, but it’s offensive for the conquerors to play the victim.

                1. Considering Palestine was never a separate country and the Israelis only occupied it to create a buffer between them and Arab nation’s (much like the occupied the Golan Heights) after going to war three times to defend themselves from total annihilation by these Arab states, the Israelis aren’t exactly traditional conquerors. Additionally, Israel has attempted to make peace multiple times, only to have the Palestinians attack and kill innocent women and children. I would say there is adequate victimhood to go around.

                2. “Conquerors”
                  Ignorant of history, or just a liar?
                  Egypt, Syria and Jordan lost the Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and the West Bank after they invaded Israel during the Six-day War in 1967. There never was a “Palestine”. Before the war those areas were legitimately part of Jordan, Syria and Egypt, and were full of Jordanian, Syrian and Egyptian citizens.

                  It’s an established international procedure for aggressor states to lose territory to those they attacked.
                  After WW1 and 2, Germany lost Danzig and then everything east of the Oder?Neisse line to Poland, Lithuania and Russia, Denmark got Northern Schleswig, Belgium got Moresnet and three German cantons, the Dutch got Elten and T?ddern.
                  Big chunks of Austria-Hungary went to Italy, Poland, Romania, and Yugoslavia.
                  Greece got eastern Thrace, Ionia and the city of Izmir from Turkey.
                  Italy lost the Dodecanese to Greece and lost Goriska, Inner Carniola, Istria, Zadar, the Dalmatian islands and Rijeka to Yugoslavia.
                  Hell, the amount of territory Latin American countries have had to cede after losing wars of aggression would make your head spin.

                  Israel is no more of a “conqueror” than Poland was after WWII.

                  1. Yes, it’s easy to make a conqueror look like the victim if you cherry-pick where you start the clock.

                    1. Eat the L Vern, you lost this one.

                    2. Try 1700 BC

                    3. Vernon Depner|3.17.19 @ 3:05AM|#

                      “Yes, it’s easy to make a conqueror look like the victim if you cherry-pick where you start the clock.”

                      Let’s assume, arguendo, that your account of events is accurate. It’s not, but let’s assume that it is: Why was it OK for the Babylonians, Macedonians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Ottomans to conquer Israel, but not OK for the Jews to conquer it back?

                    4. Two things:

                      For most of human history, taking land by conquest was considered OK and business as usual. Today, most of the world is trying to become more civilized, and conquering other countries is now considered unacceptably rude. We have codified rules about this that most countries have endorsed. It is not “OK” today because the human race has changed its mind about what is acceptable conduct by nations.

                      Secondly, the idea that contemporary Jews could “conquer it back” is based on the idea that today’s Jews are somehow the same people as the Jews of thousands of years ago. That is a religious/political belief, not an objective fact. Nor is Zionism a project of only Jews, as I stated in another post. Most supporters of Zionism are Christians, and there could have been no modern Israel without the help of Christian national governments, so even if you accept the belief that contemporary Jews are the same people as ancient Israelites, the taking of Israel can’t accurately be said to be an act by these Jews alone. Nor are contemporary Palestinians the same people who conquered Israel in previous ages. The assertion that modern Jews had some right to “conquer it back” suffers from the same illogic as the idea that contemporary “whites” owe reparations to the descendants of Black slaves.

                    5. Yeah sure, Eastern European Jews are actually ethnic Europeans. Lets just ignore the fact that they look nothing like their blond-haired, blue-eyed neighbors. Oh BTW, what’s the cutoff date for acceptable conquest?

                    6. The fact is that Jews around the world DO resemble their neighbors. We see blond, blue-eyed Jews in Western Europe, almond-eyed Jews in Asia, Black Jews in sub-Saharan Africa, swarthy Jews in North Africa, and Middle Eastern Jews of the same Hebrew heritage as some of their Christian and Muslim neighbors. And of course, anyone of any ethnicity can become a Jew subject to the Israeli “right of return” as long the rabbi certifying their conversion is properly credentialed. But?so what? Where else in the world do people have an automatic right to settle in another country just because some of their ancestors thousands of years ago might have lived there? My ancestors came to America from England and Germany less than 250 years ago. I have no right to “return” to either place. Much less do German-Americans have any right to go to Germany and demand to be IN CHARGE there. And do all Catholics have a right to settle in Italy?

                      Oh BTW, what’s the cutoff date for acceptable conquest?

                      June 28, 1919

                    7. So what, Jews aren’t allowed because the Romans kicked them out? Or because Canaanites are Semitic peoples too?

        2. They travel freely outside of unmolested entry into Israel, largely due to the thousands of rockets fired at Israel. But let’s ignore reality so you can feel bad for the little guy.

        3. They travel freely outside of unmolested entry into Israel, largely due to the thousands of rockets fired at Israel. But let’s ignore reality so you can feel bad for the little guy.

        4. They weren’t colonized. The orignal boundaries of Israel were land transferred from the Pakistanis. So stop with you leftist anti semtitc bullshit.

        5. it the Palestinians had just gracefully accepted being colonized and subjugated,

          Whoever could have guessed starting a war you then lose is a bad idea?

          1. Refresh my memory?when did the Palestinians invade Europe and the US and start a war against the Jews in England, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, etc., and America?

            1. Why are you pretending that is the relevant fact? Unable to deal with reality?

              1. Just looking for clarity about when you think the war started. My understanding is that it began when European and American Jews began colonizing Palestine. I’ve never read about Palestinians going in mass to Europe to start a war with Jews. I think it’s important to remember who the aggressor was in this conflict, even though it’s too late undo the outcome.

                1. My understanding is that it began when European and American Jews began colonizing Palestine.

                  Ah, the beginning is whatever we can blame on the Jews then? Good, good.

                  Maybe you can next explain how you can be colonized by people you outnumber 100 to 1?

                  1. Maybe you can next explain how you can be colonized by people you outnumber 100 to 1?

                    Ask the Mayans to explain it to you.

                    1. That’s definitely the appropriate standard – nothing absurd about that at all. Plus it’s wrong: Europeans outnumbered Mayans by a wide margin.

                      So maybe shoot to hit one relevant fact in your rant.

                    2. Ask the Mayans to explain it to you.

                      Superior technology, persistent efforts by the invaders, and being undermined by native populations that you’ve oppressed in the decades preceding the invaders’ arrival?

                      Incidentally, one reason the Palestinians lost because of a defining feature of Arabic culture–the willingness to stab a fellow Arab in the back over perceived short-term gain.

                2. “My understanding is that it began when European and American Jews began colonizing Palestine”

                  Ah that explains it. Your understanding is stupid and wrong.

                  1. European and American Jews did not emigrate to Palestine to establish modern Israel? Wow, I do have it all wrong.

                    1. This makes total sense to those who presume war is the appropriate reaction when Jews move in.

                    2. When Jews, or anyone else, move in with the expressed intention of taking over, displacing the current residents, and establishing a new nation, then, yes, taking up arms to defend against them is an understandable reaction. Yes, simply surrendering and cooperating is a lot less messy, but it’s a lot to ask.

                    3. Replace Jews, with socialist.

                    4. “re-establishing their nation that they have been in exile from for 2000 years and had always lived in and settled, but never in large enough numbers to reclaim it”

                      FTFY

                    5. I fully support the right of anyone who was born in Israel more than 2000 years ago to return there.

                3. You’re missing the 1890s – 1940s North African War.

                  The conflicts with the late Ottoman Empire fuel the creation of Israel and conflict.

                  (And PS to Jews in these comments, getting huffy at implications you are to blame for something is seriously pathetic)

                4. Arabs were the aggressors, just like they always are.

                  1. Did Arabs send forces attack Jews in Europe in the period from the 1840s when the concepts of Zionism and a Jewish state began to be publicly promoted until masses of European settlers with the expressed intention of creating a Jewish state began moving into Palestine? If not, how can you say that Arabs were the aggressors in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

                    1. And you’re right Vern, the Jews should have just stayed in Europe. After all, things worked out so well for them there.

                    2. Things went pretty badly for the Native Americans. Do they have the right to take over Siberia?

                5. By colonizing, do you mean when they purchased land from the Arabs living in Israel at the time. So it was the first “colonization” accompanied by a title search? (I ripped off that line from P.J. O’Rourke.)

                  1. That was one of the steps.

                  2. Part of the problem was that when the Zionists purchased land, it wasn’t from the Arabs living in the area. The land-owners were mainly in Turkey. The local population were mostly something like sharecroppers, and got nothing from the deal. Maybe a few of them were booted off land they’d farmed for generations but never owned, but generally the Zionists picked up land that was uninhabited and considered unsuitable for cultivation – and then they made it more productive than the neighboring farms, and the neighbors became JEALOUS!

                    The displaced “Palestinian” population came about in 1948, when Israel was officially created. Some Arabs stayed in their homes and at peace with the Israelis; their descendants are second-class citizens in some ways (for self-preservation, the Israeli constitution ensures Jews will always be in charge regardless of the demographics), but much better off than the subjects of the neighboring Arab nations. Many left to join the Arab armies that were going to sweep the Jews into the sea, and when Israel won, they didn’t let these enemies back into their country. So these became “Palestinian Refugees”.

                    Most of the great-grandchildren of those refugees are still living in refugee camps – and that’s due to the policies of the Arab nations, not Israeli policy.

        6. That is what the Japanese did in 1945.

          that is why there have not been any atomic bombings of Japan since then.

          1. But if a massive number of Americans had moved into Japan starting in 1945 and partitioned a large area to call their own permanently, we can assume that the Japanese would have been a little upset about that. Some of them might still be firing a missile once in a while.

            1. It’s called US military bases. AND yes the Japanese hate it, but what are they going to do?

              1. It would be interesting to see what would happen if the Japanese government asked us to leave.

              2. That’s an interesting statement. The Japanese have a saying “Shikataganai” which means basically “Nothing can be done about it”. It’s kind of like a passive aggressive argument ender and face saving mechanism all rolled into one. I wonder if that is kind of a cultural coping mechanism for the post war japanese society.

                Japanese people are awesome.

    6. Not today, ISIS!

    7. Israelis are doing what they need to do to protect themselves. You don’t even have to consider European antisemitism to understand the Israelis’ motivation. All you need to consider is the history of attacks they have suffered at the hands of Muslims and Arabs, especially so-called Palestinians, since the time their country was founded. If you squint your vision a certain way, you can see the Israelis over-reacting from time to time. But if you look at the evidence in whole, it is tough to make that argument. Hence, the reasonable point that anti-Zionism is antisemitism. In theory, everybody is a great Monday Morning QB at picking apart the faults of the Israelis. In reality, if you don’t see the Israelis as the most reasonable and moral group is this war (and that is what it is) then you are either ignorant or an anti-Semite. The world is an imperfect place, so holding the Israelis to a standard of perfection is simply silly. Who is the aggressor, who uses terrorism, who hides behind children, who kills non-combatants on purpose? We know the answer.

    8. “However the activist doesn’t care a whit about Palestinians.”…nice, right out of the playbook of ted kaczynski.

  3. White guilt matters. In case the snapping seems odd to you, It’s a New York City thing.

    Seriously though, the best thing we can do in the USA is lead by example through peaceful coexistence. The next level is a military intervention or diplomatic effort. Are we going to blame the Washington Post for the bombings targeting a Philippine Catholic cathedral this January?

    1. From that Aljazeera, which I assume is not biased against Muslims:

      Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan, reporting from the capital, Manila, said the timing of the attack was “suspicious”.

      “Last week, there was a referendum and the island of Jolo voted to not be part of this new autonomous government that is being created,” she said.

      The Bangsamoro, meaning Moro nation, is an expanded autonomous region, that is expected to replace the existing ARMM, which has been criticised as merely nominal, and failed to end the violent conflict that has left at least 120,000 people dead over the past five decades.

      On Friday, it was announced that voters in Mindanao overwhelmingly voted for the creation of the Bangsamoro. However, voters in Jolo and the entire Sulu province voted against the new regional unit.

      Rebels and the government in Manila hope a new, peaceful Bangsamoro will finally draw the investment needed to pull the region out of the brutal poverty that makes it a hotspot for violence.

      Muslim rebels have long been battling for the independence or autonomy on Mindanao, which they regard as their ancestral homeland dating back to when Arab traders arrived there in the 13th century.

      So … there’s a precedent for the descendants of colonists to violently demand a separation of groups in exchange for peace. This is a mess. How can we fix it without another Vietnam? Or do we simply watch and hope for the best?

    2. Isn’t snapping your fingers a micro-aggression against those with disabled hands or those with compromised hearing though?

      1. It is also an explicitly obscene affront to all with arthritis in their hands. That person should be banned from all social media accounts, and all safe spaces of all kinds.

      2. It is also a misappropriation of white fraternity culture

      3. But how else are street gangs supposed to keep their rythymn?

    3. Look up “beatnik”, man…

  4. joined with many in the Democratic Party to criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar

    “Joined with many” except those with actual power to make consequences for her remarks. But from what I saw, any comments I saw that dealt with why she thought that way were related to where she came from, not what she believed about creation.

  5. As a U.S. senator and secretary of state, Clinton was a major proponent of the Iraq War and the intervention in Libya, both of which destabilized the Middle East and caused the deaths of millions of Muslims.

    The Libya intervention was a smashing Obama / Clinton success story. We came, we saw, he died!

    As for Iraq, Clinton deserves no blame for that. It was entirely the fault of the Bush regime for tricking her with manipulated intelligence. (The neocons still aren’t as bad as the alt-right though.)

    #StillWithHer
    #UnbanPalinsButtplug

    1. It really is amazing how the media lets Democrats, especially the Clintons, off the hook for Iraq. Clinton and Gore were bombing the hell out of Iraq for years and telling us Saddam had a WMD program for years before Bush was elected.

      1. The Clintons got “off the hook” for Iraq because they didn’t waste $2 trillion and 4000 US soldiers on nation building like the Bushpigs did, dumbass.

        1. So, who has raped more children PB? You, or Bill Clinton?

        2. Keep picking those cherries, turd:
          “Some 2,500 Americans Have Died in Afghanistan and Iraq Under Obama
          Under Obama, America has been at war for longer than under any other U.S. president”
          […]
          “In that spirit, here are some of those numbers.
          ?2,499 U.S. soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq so far under President Obama, according to the independent Iraq Coalition Casualty Count.
          ?Of those, 1,906 have been killed in and around Afghanistan, and 593 in Iraq.
          ?Under Obama, the United States has been at war for 2,687 days. That’s longer than under George W. Bush ? or any other U.S. president, for that matter.
          ?Obama has conducted airstrikes on seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria. (That’s three more countries than George W. Bush bombed.)
          ?U.S. combat forces are deployed on the ground in three countries: Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. That’s one more war than Obama inherited, and which his successor will likely have to contend with.

        3. There’s really not a Democrat’s duck you won’t suck, I’d there shriek?

          1. He takes it so sweet they call him ‘sugar’.

    2. “Smashing success”: Tell the entire Muslim world “Don’t straighten up and renounce terrorism, or else we’ll still kill you anyway.” That’s the great thing about interventionist foreign policy: killin’ is fun!

      Let’s just hope the IRA don’t wise up too.

  6. Good time to plug one of the better websites out there: Spurious correlations.

    http://www.tylervigen.com/spurious-correlations

    We failed the children.

    1. That’s GOOD!

      1. The “Revenue generated by arcades” and “Computer science doctorate skills” is likely a causal relationship, however.

  7. “I’m sorry you feel that way.”
    “What does that even mean?”

    Best line of the whole shitshow

    1. “It means I regret the fact that you’re a raving loon, that’s what it means.”

      1. “I think you’re wrong and I feel bad about how stupidly wrong you are.”

        1. I feel that way about most people all the time.

  8. Normally I’d look with glee at this leftist infighting, except that I bet others showed similar glee in the past:

    1649 – “No sooner did the revolutionaries defeat King Charles than they divided into factions – Presbyterians and Independents. They’re hopelessly divided!”

    1792 – “Now the revolutionaries are divided into Girondins and Jacobins. They’re hopelessly divided!”

    1917 – “Those commies are busy quarreling among themselves. I mean, Mensheviki and Bolsheviki, they’re too busy with all that infighting to be of any danger.”

    1. 1934 – “Now the Hitlerites and Rohmites are fighting, this regime can’t last long!”

      1. 11 years is not very long as far as regimes go.

        1. The implicit hope was that the regime would implode *before* killing millions of people.

        2. They did a lot of damage in those 11 years wouldn’t you say?

    2. I mean, Mensheviki and Bolsheviki,…the less thans and the more thans…..hehe

  9. Haha.

    “The rhetoric that you put out there.”

    Magic words have been uttered by an American princess causing a man on the other side of the planet to lose all agency and responsibility for his own actions! She literally performed mind control to mow down 49 human beings with a human shitlord avatar!

    1. She literally performed mind control

      That’s a lot more plausible than what the NYU students were saying.

    2. So, is the activist claiming that white nationalists are innocent victims? It’s not HIS fault, after all. The most boring human on the planet MADE him.

  10. Meanwhile, in Nigeria in the last three weeks 120 Christians were killed by Moslem extremists, including 50 in a single attack. Try to find anything about that in our lazy, left-wing, legacy media with its narratives to put forward. If you want to twist and distort your own party’s picture of reality really good, there’s nothing like the disproportionately effective propaganda of silence on all those matters you don’t want the masses to ever know or think about.

    I mean, it worked pretty well in getting Hillary off the criminal hook in 2016 and starting an absolutely ferocious McCarthyite investigation of all Trump associates based on absolutely no evidence except a fraudulent dossier bought and paid for by Hillary, so why shouldn’t our noble American “journalists” keep it up?

    1. This.

      Killing of Christians by muslims is so common it doesnt even make ripples in the media.

      1. Maybe it’s just man bites dog, or maybe the media just doesn’t want to cover it.

        You heard about it under GW Bush, when it was a useful talking point against “Bush’s war.”

      2. Killing of Christians by muslims is so common it doesnt even make ripples in the media.
        And never will. Dead Christians are a plus for progressives and the establishment, just ask Tony.
        Besides Christians have no business being in those countries anyway as far as they’re concerned. Sure, the churches in Africa and the Middle East are the oldest in the world and predate Islam, but their religion is gauche and unsophisticated and the wrong sort of white people are keen on it too.

    2. And how many of those killings were livestreamed by a perpetrator who posted English-language meme-riddled commentary regarding the reasons for the attack?

      1. If we’re just talking about hate and murder numbers, why does it matter?

        1. Because he’s looking for any justification to ignore it silly.

      2. Jgalt1075….Maybe Nigeria lacks the infrastructure to properly live-stream your typical mass shooting..?
        They also may not have enough meme savvy trolls to form a “community”…? But….I’m sure they’ll catch up.

    3. Black Africans killed by other black Africans does not fit into the agenda of Ye Olde Media. The attack in NZ gives the media what they want: make Trump the scapegoat and promote gun control.

  11. Millions of Muslims killed through American military action in the Middle East? Citations, please. And are you including the tens of thousands of Muslims killed by other Muslims? Because of course, Bush made them do it.

    1. You think we’ve just been feeding FOBdogs for the last 15 years?

      1. Generally non activists put the killef in war by American action in the tens of thousands, not millions.

        1. All the deaths in Iraq due to the Iraq War and insurgency/civil war are still far fewer deaths than Saddam was responsible for. But that’s irrelevant to the fact that we should have never gotten involved. Saddam was arguably the most evil and murderous dictator on the planet, who on multiple occasions had tried to violently conquer and rule over his neighboring countries, but that has absolutely nothing to do with us and we shouldn’t have been concerned about it.

  12. The SJW’s are totalitarian in the technical sense.

    It was Jean Kirkpatrick who pointed out that one of the major distinctions between authoritarians and totalitarians is that where authoritarians mostly concern themselves with controlling what you do, that isn’t enough for totalitarians. Totalitarians want to control what we think.

    Isn’t that what SJWs are all about–controlling what we think? How dare you think things and express them?!

    Yeah, sticking up for freedom of thought means sticking up for the rights of stupid and evil racists. It even means sticking up for the rights of elitist shitheads like Chelsea Clinton.

    That these SJWs are also openly socialist is even more concerning. God forbid they disarm us during my lifetime.

    “Trust in God, but keep your powder dry”

    —-Cromwell by way of my translation.

  13. . . . the former president’s daughter.

    This has to be one of the worst insults I’ve ever seen.

    ‘You’ve done nothing with your life. The only thing you’re known for and your most significant accomplishment is being related to someone more famous.’

    1. Celebrity magazines devote lots of attention to precisely such people, especially British royalty.

      OMG Prince what’shisname is going to have another child!

      1. The U. S. became independent so that American media coverage of British royals could be divorced from politics and moved to the arena of pure entertainment.

        (of course dregs of politics remain)

    2. It…is not wrong.

  14. Did y’all see the rack on the commie Jew girl who tweeted video of her Palestinian friend confronting Chelsea at NYU?

    I’m loving this stuff. AOC calls FDR a racist. Ilhan Omar calls Obama a murderer who didn’t deliver on his promises. Commie cuties accuse Chelsea Clinton of inciting mass murder with her Islamophobic and racist rhetoric.

    The left is really steppin’ it up. Maybe I need to wear a Che T-shirt when I go cast my primary vote for Tulsi Gabbard next year.

    1. No patriotic American should ever vote for Tulsi Gabbard. She’s Putin’s favorite Democrat.

      1. Putin is a CIA deep cover operative.

        1. There is no CIA?it’s just a psy-op.

          1. Man who stares at goats.

  15. Fuck it, I’m tired of missing out:

    This is all AOC’s fault, really.

    1. If only AOC were so ingenious!

      I go back and forth between thinking that the people behind AOC should be exposed to dreading what happens from the exposure.

      I maintain that the opposite sides of the political spectrum strive to become the caricatures their opponents make them out to be, and blowing the whistle on the Democratic Socialists of America and their student chapters is only likely to drive more idiot children into their arms.

  16. …she certainly isn’t responsible for the actions of a deranged white nationalist in New Zealand.

    Agreed. There are a whole lot of people not responsible for this white supremacist/eco-terrorist’s actions, but that’s not going to stop people from throwing accusations around. This guy had enough dipshittery in his manifesto that we all get to tar our ideological adversaries with some part of it.

    1. It’s clear that his dipshittery was calculated to do just that. This guy is a Super Troll, not a typical ideological terrorist.

  17. She must be unpersoned for thoughtcrime

  18. the delusional concerns typical of the far-right white nationalist fringe: Islam invading the West, immigrants replacing the white race, etc.

    “Delusional”? You could make an argument for “overblown”, “premature”, or “unjustified”, but if you believe such concerns are “delusional”, you haven’t been keeping up with current events.

    1. Or the events of the last few millennia. Invasion and conquest have a rather long history among humans.

      1. There are some that would fight over ENB and some that would not.

  19. Snappity snapptiy snap.

    “I’m sorry you feel that way ” means “I am not engaging with this nut job and I hope security comes soon”.

    Every man knows exactly how Chelsea feels.

    1. Why didn’t the SS crack some heads?

      1. You could spell out “Secret Service” to avoid confusion.

        1. Some gov types are scared of the Black Shirts.

  20. This is just a backhanded way of blaming “the Jews.” First, because Chelsea criticized Omar for antisemiic remarks, and then because she’s married to a Jews. Subtext, people.

    1. This hefty Hebrew honey is the one doin’ blamin’ .

      1. I HAVE ERECTION*

        *I mean I would if I could

        1. LOL

      2. Hot damn!

  21. So do their parents get a refund on the bribe they paid to get these morons into NYU?

    At least a percentage for the Ivy League failure of a logic class?

  22. At least now Chelsea knows what it feels like to be a Republican and get blamed for everything bad that’s ever happened in the history of the universe.

  23. Seeing Democrats eat their own always cheers me up.

      1. But those were reasonable people, compared to the Democrats now, where anyone who doesn’t agree with 100% of any faction’s viewpoints is an apostate.

        1. Have you seen the “Opinion Rhapsody” going around on Facebook? One of the best parodies I’ve seen in a long time.

    1. Atomized individuals feuding with each other is the inevitable end state of identity politics.

      1. I’d say it leads factional infighting, and the successful factions use what they learned about political warfare to launch war on the non-leftists.

  24. Liberals are filthy sickos

  25. Do gay men, as they’re violently penetrating their “husbands,” resulting in an explosive full-body orgasm culminating in a massive ejaculation of HIV-infected semen into the other man’s lower intestine, realize that all normal people find their lifestyle, and them, absolutely disgusting?

    1. The effects of gluttony can also be fairly disgusting.

      The difference is that gluttony is more popular than sodomy, though we’re not lacking for people who want to turn to the law to suppress one or the other (though the defenders of one are often the persecutors of the other, and vice versa).

      Nowadays, it’s “homophobia” which is deemed disgusting, and the law is more likely to be invoked against “homophobia” than sodomy – perhaps if certain people hadn’t set the example of maintaining a Police for the Repression of Vice and the Promotion of Virtue, these anti-liberty crusades would have been more difficult.

    2. Is this like the shitpost version of OBL?

      1. Just a typical conservative.

        Conservatives are infected with SuperMan Morality Complex. They are all Aborto-Freaks or Bible beating progressives who hate liberty and love Big Gov just as much as progs do.

          1. LOL

      2. Deconstructed Potato|3.16.19 @ 6:40PM|#
        “Is this like the shitpost version of OBL?”

        Pretty sure it is; check down-thread for the breathless obsession with anal sex.
        Quite possibly the same troll doing parodies of the stereotypical marginal left and right.

    3. I’ve long suspected that the reason for the denigration of male homosexuality is that straight people truly believe that gay sex is better than hetero sex.

    4. Hey….shouldn’t that be….”violently penetrating their wives” ?
      Now….if the couple in question are flip-floppers….that makes the classification tricky…doesn’t it….?
      (or am I being too provincial?)

  26. It would appear these leftists want everything free.

    Except speech.

  27. Trying to make any sense from a lunatic is itself lunatic.

    To kill innocent people this way, to maim and cause scars for life for survivors. Why are we talking as if Chelsea Clinton or any of the others he mentioned in the rabbit holes, the traps he created? There were other distractions, things going on in his head, eco-whatever, pewdipie , those have been reported.

    Fear, hatred, division, is what he wanted.

    1. “Fear, hatred, division, is what he wanted.”

      Isn’t that what we all want? Those of us posting here, anyways.

  28. What’s disturbing about this confrontation isn’t the fact that some leftists are placing blame for an atrocity on a single source, accusing them of using an assortment of dog whistles, coded racist language and (violent) rhetoric, That’s old news.

    What’s disturbing is that these kids agree with Omar’s antisemtism. These kids aren’t mainstream prog who say “Omar was wrong to say those things but she’s not antisemitic”.5 years ago they would have been all over the OWS, blaming Jews for running the global economy like Svengali.

    Antisemitism is THE driving force behind the most enduring bigotry and persecution known to men. Back in the middle ages entire Jewish communities could decimated over rumors about them using Christian blood for sacrifice. These kids spent years being brainwashed at schools, so they’l yell at some white kids for trick or treating as Black Panther, but they won’t yell at Muslims for tweeting vile centuries old antisemitic trope that inspired violence.

    The left will condemn antisemitism when it’s useful to discredit the right wing. When the charge reaches one of their own, they squirm and deflect. “Oh it’s not antisemitic to criticize Israel”. They sure did make a stink over Charlottesville.

    1. What does this have to do with antisemitism?

      “Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.”
      Mishnah Sanhedrin

      If anything there is a place to understand given our Jewish history.

      These people were doing nothing wrong. They were just gathering together as a community in Christchurch, New Zealand.The left, the right, Republicans, democrats, no place for that.

  29. Chelsea Clinton falsely accused Ilhan Omar of anti-semitism. This woman firmly criticized Clinton and expressed her views on the matter. What is the problem?

    1. The problem is waiting for Pamela Geller to weigh in on this. It’s taking too long…

  30. It’s like the beginning of a horror movie.

  31. CC was a victim of opportunity.
    That she happens to also be a progressive, if less explicitly, is immaterial to the progressives who wanted a known/celebrity face to unleash their hatred upon.
    They are vile beasts, and they are at war with freedom and all who wish to remain individual

  32. Bernie Sanders is close to breaking into my top tier of 2020 candidates.

    Sanders is the only presidential candidate going directly after Trump

    The Democratic presidential candidate, speaking before an audience of a few thousand supporters gathered in a conference center here, called Trump “the most dangerous president in American history.” Sanders said Trump “simply does not know the difference between truth and lies.” And Sanders called Trump’s criticism of the media “beyond disgraceful.”

    If Bernie keeps talking like this, I’ll forgive his earlier misguided criticism of open borders.

    #LibertariansForBernie

    1. Bernie just wants to get elected so he can be the most dangerous president in American history

      1. As a Koch / Reason libertarian, I am no fan of Bernie’s socialist economic views. But there’s no way he could be more dangerous than Drumpf, who may have been a Russian intelligence asset since 1987.

        1. Maybe they are BOTH Russian assets. Have you thought of that? The Con Man certainly is beholden to Russian money laundering mobsters but Bernie has a long checkered history of honeymooning and vacationing with Kremlin supporters.

          Widen your lens, young foolish one.

          1. “Maybe they are BOTH Russian assets. Have you thought of that? The Con Man certainly is beholden to Russian money laundering mobsters but Bernie has a long checkered history of honeymooning and vacationing with Kremlin supporters.”

            Keep lying turd; it fits you so well.
            You and that hag lost 2-1/2 years ago and you’re still whining. It is amusing.

          2. Why are you disrespecting Reason’s property rights after they told you they didn’t want you here screech?

            1. Because he’s not a “classical liberal” and he doesn’t give two shits about property rights?

  33. Wait. Is that an expression that could be interpreted as a SMIRK?!

    1. She was getting all up in that Palestinian woman’s face, chanting “death to Muslims.”

      /sarc

  34. I am making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people say to me how much money they can make connected so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my existence.
    This is what I do?. http://www.Just4Work.com

  35. Meanwhile, Peter Jackson, who filmed a white-supremacist movie in New Zealand, is being let off the hook.

    /sarc /sarc /sarc

  36. What sad is that this NZ shooter/terrorist praised a US President for his white nationalist views. Trump is not only a con man but an inspiration to terrorists.

    1. So are environmentalists, by this logic.

      1. That’s turd; no logic there.

    2. Do you repudiate the Islamophobic views of your predecessor Palin’s Buttplug?

      I agreed with him on most issues, but I always called him out when he criticized Islam.

      #LibertariansAgainstIslamophobia

      1. All religion is vile – especially Islam. The Buttplug was certainly spot on there.

        I subscribe to The Buttplug Letter by the way.

        1. It’s disappointing to hear you say that. Just the other day you were explaining how it’s “right wing” to ostracize disfavored minority groups. Sounds like you have some “right wing” views of your own when it comes to Islam.

          #MoneyshotIsTheNewPalinsButtplug
          #(UnfortunatelyIncludingTheIslamophobia)

          1. Don’t confuse my personal views with what role a secular government should play in religion.

            I fully support the First Amendment – both the right to worship and the right for us rationalists have to ridicule those idiotic preachers/Imans/priests.

            1. Now apply that same standard to conservatives (or at least the posters here), fucktard.

          2. “Just the other day you were explaining how it’s “right wing” to ostracize disfavored minority groups. Sounds like you have some “right wing” views of your own when it comes to Islam.”

            Yeah, it’s not fair to keep track of what Shrike says from day to day and expect it to add up to something consistent and sensible. He can hit 50 contradicting positions in 50 successive days, and if they all have anything consistent in common, it’s that they’re all 50 different shades of retard.

            1. 50 Shades of Retard

              It will be the wokest softcore bdsm middle aged women fantasy novel yet!
              (Details are sketchy at this time)

            2. “…it’s that they’re all 50 different shades of retard.”

              And 50 shades of mendacity. The pathetic piece of shit must have posted an honest comment once, just by mistake, but I guess it happened during a vacation.
              He seems simply incapable of honest, good-faith argument. Probably has to do with the coke habit.

    3. Money-shot is an inspiration to pedos.

    4. No what is sad is that you got banned for posting kiddie porn links and have no respect for Reason’s property rights.

    5. David Duke praises Omar. By your association logic. Omar is now a racist.

  37. Yeah that’s pretty dumb.

  38. The shooting has fuck-all to do with the US.

    It’s first an Aussie/Kiwi issue and then it’s the European’s ball.

    Happy St. Paddy’s Day you red-faced, green-livered Micks!

  39. Oh, for fuck’s sake. She APOLOGIZED to the SJW?

    Sure, throw some blood in the water, princess. What a stupid cow.

    -jcr

    1. The problem with SJWs is that they always run out of other people to hate.

  40. BTW, doesn’t the rapist’s daughter have a Secret Service detail to curb-stomp these kinds of people before they get this close to her?

    -jcr

    1. Which rapist? Trump or Bill Clinton?

      1. Keep lying turd; it fits you so well.

        1. Oh look, its White Nationalist #4 reporting in for Trump dick sucking duty. Where is LoveCons?

            1. #MoneyshotIsTheNewPalinsButtplug

            2. It’s turd.

          1. “Oh look, its White Nationalist #4 reporting in for Trump dick sucking duty. Where is LoveCons?”

            Keep lying turd; it fits you so well.

          2. Poor PB sock/money-shot sock/ sock sock.

      2. Wait, are you saying that Chelsea Clinton is actually TRUMP’S DAUGHTER?

        1. “Janet Reno was her father”

          /John McCain

  41. Christ, what idiots.

    1. You can say that again.

  42. Christ, what idiots.

  43. In all seriousness, they were positioning Chelsea to run for congress right up until the moment Hillary lost the election. If Hillary had won, Chelsea would probably be in Congress today–maybe instead of AOC. When the president wants her daughter to win a primary in New York, she wins the primary.

    Only a Shrike level retard would suggest that we should have voted for Hillary so that we’d have Chelsea instead of AOC–but it is interesting that the Democrat farm system is so shallow that when you get behind the legacy candidates like Hillary, you drop all the way down to Hate America First socialists.

  44. Normal, healthy, mentally sane Americans close their eyes and into their heads pops an image of a gay man thrusting his erect penis in and out of another man’s b*tthole until he has a pleasurable, shuddering orgasm resulting in the powerful ejaculation of gobs and gobs of HIV infected man cream into the other man’s colon. When they open their eyes, they’re sweating and gag in disgust. Liberal Democrats picture that and think “Aww, what a sweet, healthy, courageous marital act between a husband and a husband!”

    1. Are you Rick Santorum?

      Or that fucking toe-tapping gloryhole loving GOP Senator Larry Craig?

      1. Why are you still here after you got banned for posting kiddie porn links?

      2. Did he not tip you enough when he patronized your gloryhole? At least you make some money in between shitposting kiddie porn links.

    2. Why would you astrik “butthole”?

    3. “Conservative Christian Americans close their eyes and into their heads pops an image of a gay man thrusting his erect penis in and out of another man’s b*tthole…”

      Fixed it for you.

    4. Please don’t post this kind of crap here, whether as satire, troll or sincerely held beliefs.

  45. It is a medical fact that the brains of teenagers are not fully developed and this makes them fertile ground for all sorts of crazy thinking and behavior. It is also why teens are susceptible to drug addiction and traffic accidents . Often they aare incapable of rational thought and making logical connections . The SJW here is living proof of this medical fact and is a reason for NOT lowering the voting age to 16 but in fact raising it to 25 when their frontal lobes are fully connected.

    1. Yep. There’s a reason they said you have to be 25 to run for Congress. It’s because 25 is when you become an actual adult.

      1. Not everyone becomes an adult with adult-level mental reasoning.

        1. The line had to be drawn someplace and it had to be before people entered their second childhood.

        2. I’m glad I’m a Beta.

    2. Yo. Raising the voting age to 25, or fuck even 30 given modern life expectancy, would be a GREAT idea.

      People are idiots when they’re young. And people tend to become more sane about policy positions as they age.

      That alone would probably push the Dems back to the platform they had in 1996, if they wanted to be elected anyway.

  46. You could write an article like this and point out the ridiculous beliefs of Trump supporters all day long They’re more ridiculous then these college students and their beliefs are more dangerous. The scary thing is Trump is as crazy as his most embarrassing supporters which is rare.

    1. Ordinary Person|3.16.19 @ 9:28PM|#
      “You could write an article like this and point out the ridiculous beliefs of Trump supporters all day long.”

      We could also do one regarding your fixation on Trump, your TDS and your constant lying. But there’s no reason to; you advertise them all day, every day.
      Fuck off, you pathetic piece of shit.

    2. I happen to disagree with your cynical smears about Trump supporters. Theys just ordinary people, like yourself.

      1. Some are assholes, but you can say that about any group of any significant number.

  47. “Omar is Muslim, and calling her out has emboldened anti-Islamic sentiment, according to some on the far left.

    The left normalized the belief that criticizing Muslims is Islamophobia because it was useful in attacking their true enemy: non-leftist Americans. It’s quite satisfying watching them die on their own weapon.

    More please.

    1. I agree that they’re sticking up for Omar because they see it as sticking in the craw of rednecks. They’re mostly against gun rights for the same reason. It has nothing to do with the issues and everything to do with aesthetics.

      1. It’s not only about sticking it to them. They side with the Muslim radicals because doing so allows them to portray their enemies and Islamophobes which helps them scare the middle away from the right. The educated in particular like to look down on fellow Americans so this sort of thing is very effective among college graduates, particularly those who don’t accomplish anything and use leftist politics to maintain their sense of self-worth.

        This coalition works. Why was Obama so much more effective than Clinton from the perspective of the far left? They have about the same views. Because with Obama they controlled congress.

    2. “It’s quite satisfying watching them die on their own weapon.”

      No, I think it’s watching their leftism become more virulent, sweeping aside former allies until said former allies get classified as “conservatives” and “reactionaries.”

      Positions which used to be normative, taken for granted, or at least permissible within the Democratic Party and the leftist coalition are now “conservative,” “right-wing extremism,” etc.

      Here is another step in that process.

      1. To be fair, the Clintons have never been all that liberal anyway. They were more crooks than ideologues. With the exception of HillaryCare and abortion, pretty much everything that Bill Clinton did during his presidency would be considered at least moderate-conservative today *by the Republicans*.

        1. Republicans ran congress most of his presidency, so he couldnt much of shit. Its also why welfare reform was passed.

        2. Don’t Ask Don’t Tell comes to mind.

          At the time, it was a politically-smart, calculated policy which was moderate liberal in nature.

          To today’s radical leftists, it’s the exact sort of homophobic, white supremacist sentiment one expects the father of a terrorist-enabler like Chelsea Clinton would have!

          Aside: Some of my more sensible liberal friends have stated that Trump as POTUS makes them miss Bush. Today’s extremists make me miss Bill.

        3. The only initiative Clinton deserves credit for is NAFTA. Welfare reform and other initiatives were forced on him by Republicans and the programs’s popularity. By contrast Bill’s first instinct was Hillarycare, essentially the same ineffective government management of healthcare we now know as Obamacare.

          Bill was no moderate. He just (1) knew it was good politics to appear to be one, and (2) was more interested in being a successful president than in earning the undying love of the far left.

          His entire presidency is the American system working at its best: different constituencies pressuring people to act against their preferences but which result in far better outcomes. Unfortunately since then the left’s institutional control has become virtually unchallenged. As a result left wingers believe their path to success is appealing to the far left.

          1. “”Welfare reform and other initiatives were forced on him by Republicans and the programs’s popularity.””

            Not exactly. Bill was instrumental is passing welfare reform when he was governor of Arkansas.

          2. Work on NAFTA began under the GHWB administration.

      2. Democratic party is imploding where only SJW Socialists are left.

        1. Even funnier is that some Democrats are Socialists will want to join other parties because they have to belong and will get shunned like RINOs and LINOs do.

          The Trump Era is going to be a wild ride for the history books.

          Trump helped destroy the Democratic Party as a political force. Almost 200 years in the making.

  48. Reason is really hurting for web traffic these days.

    They dont clear spammers regularly and they send in troll socks to bump web traffic. This is Reason now.

    1. Well, their design is pretty antiquated, don’t you think?

      Also, the libertarian angle has been on a pretty steady decline since January 7, 1995.

  49. OT:

    “The World’s Recycling Is in Chaos. Here’s What Has to Happen”
    (notice that she’s already figured out what HAS TO HAPPEN! She’s so smart! Or so ‘correct’)
    […]
    “It has been a year since China jammed the works of recycling programs around the world by essentially shutting down what had been the industry’s biggest market.
    […]
    Above all, experts say it should be a wake-up call to the world on the need to sharply cut down on single-use plastics…”
    http://www.wired.com/story/the…..to-happen/

    The last claim is stated, and supported by a whole bunch of big meaningless numbers. Nowhere is there any investigation into whether the plastics ending up in landfill cause any harm whatsoever;
    ‘We KNOW it’s bad, ’cause dirt momma!!!’

    1. Two thoughts… Jammed up the works of recycling programs? The stuff is worth less than it costs to pick it up. That’s what jammed up the works. Even with China’s nearly free labor, it is worthless. Or actually it is “worth less”. As in worth less than what it costs.

      Second thought. If you care about global warming, the landfill might be where you want your plastics to end up. That’s a reasonably good way to re-sequester that carbon.

      1. Yep, on both.
        China was a ‘solution’ to a problem which isn’t.

  50. Bear in mind the ultimate goal is to silence any criticism of Islam, even mild mannered ones like Clinton’s

    1. No the ultimate goal is power.

      1. Silence any criticism of Islam

      2. ?

      3. Power

      1. 2) Would be demographic change to bring higher and higher amounts of Muslims, thanks to open borders immigration and poor treatment of women in Islam resulting in a much higher birthrate than secular people.

  51. Bernies have never encounters a Republican in the wild, so they think the biggest enemy are squishy liberals. Best keep your distance. They are weird. And don’t feed them.

  52. Denouncing Jew hatred gets Muslims killed?

    1. She’s setting a bad example.

  53. What happened to Chelsea Clinton is part of the reason I don’t express contrition over the incident in New Zealand. It is better that I write my usual eloquent stuff and get called vicious names or worse by you Rhoemites and your Moslems you support so much. than I express sorrow and have both ingratitude and a vicious guilt trip laid on me as is being done to Hillary Clinton and Webb Hubbel’s daughter. Incidentally, you Rhoemites don’t know this and don’t care, but Muslims regard people helping them as weakness. This islamophilllic/jihadophillac behavior on your part is a sick cult that cannot really be reached by the misnamed title of your magazine.

    “There’s no need to fear. Underzog is here.”.

  54. I am making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people say to me how much money they can make connected so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my existence. This is what I do?. http://www.home.jobs89.com

  56. Ha ha ha ha ha. If mirth could kill it would’ve been us instead iv thim…

  57. Having checked out a link to this goil’s twitter account (the apparently real one), she is claiming that she is going to be “the female Nick Sandman” when CNN airs the video with her as a guest talking to one of their useful idiots, or something.

    1. Maybe it was “the lefty Nick Sandman” or “the Nick Sandman who looks good in a dress” or something. Anyway, she claims a parallel.

  58. Clinton responded with “I’m sorry you feel that way”… which got her a “What does that even mean?” in response.

    This is where she dropped the ball. This was her moment to seize the world by the short and curlies and vault her name to the top of the list.

    That was her moment to reply: “It means that your assertion is too idiotic to respond to with any seriousness, but I’m just trying to be polite because there’s a mob of like-minded mental zombies surrounding you. Now please move along, as there is nothing to be gained from trying to have a discussion with someone who would espouse such indefensibly stupid ideas.”

    Well… or words to that effect.

    As Trump and AOC have taught us, people are hungry for someone who will stand up for themselves, so she would have been risking little. HRC’s army of heartbroken minions would have had their champion.

    1. By not replying much she said exactly what you wanted her to say.

      Not worth it. Chelsea Clinton is not a politician and has no wish to be drawn into this ambush.

    2. ” “It means that your assertion is too idiotic to respond to with any seriousness, but I’m just trying to be polite because there’s a mob of like-minded mental zombies surrounding you. Now please move along, as there is nothing to be gained from trying to have a discussion with someone who would espouse such indefensibly stupid ideas.””

      Commenters here are just as crass and dismissive as you want Chelsea to be. None of them have managed to grab the world by the short and curlies, and vault their names to fame and fortune. Instead they languish in well deserved obscurity.

      1. “Commenters here are just as crass and dismissive as you want Chelsea to be. None of them have managed to grab the world by the short and curlies, and vault their names to fame and fortune. Instead they languish in well deserved obscurity.”

        Fortunately, few of the commenters here are a openly imbecilic as you.
        Got a cite for you claims, idiot?

        1. Unfortunately, I think you are wrong.

      2. Nice troll attempt. Close but no coochie cigar.

        1. It was just my attempt to vault to fame and fortune by ruling the internet.

  59. “Islamic supremacists” don’t get near enough attention. They don’t even get called “Islamic supremacists” much.

  60. I just started 6 weeks ago and I’ve gotten 2 check for a total of $2,200…this is the best decision I made in a long time! “Thank you for giving me this extraordinary opportunity to make extra money from home. This extra cash has changed my life in so many ways, thank you!”

  61. snap their fingers in solidarity.

    I think this gives a hint as to who these idiots are.

    1. The Mills Brothers?

  62. This woman is right.
    Chelsea caused these shootings because she was there handing out guns, ammunition and clear advice on how to shoot people.
    If that wasn’t bad enough, she was double parked outside when this massacre occurred.
    The death penalty isn’t good enough for Chelsea for causing this horrible tragedy.
    If only she had put a “No gun zone” sign….

  63. “and was motivated by the delusional concerns typical of the far-right white nationalist fringe:”
    Another propagandist piece of utter bullshit by the far-left Reason progressives.
    He was motivated by the rape, violence, and third world behavior of the uncivilized unwashed hordes of primitives being forced on him by his government, which requires him to pay for the housing, food, clothing, healthcare, child care,etc of the invaders.

  64. The lack of intellect in these college youth is stunning, and should be alarming to us all.

  65. Of course, attacking Chelsea Clinton comments doesn’t make any sense at all. However, there is another deeply disturbing aspect to this. Chelsea Clinton is visibly pregnant. Attacking a pregnant women is a line that no one should ever cross. I have no great liking for her and less for her family. However, the are lines that no one in a civilized society should even cross. Actually, I would guess that these lines predate civilization itself.

  66. “motivated by the delusional concerns typical of the far-right white nationalist fringe: Islam invading the West, immigrants replacing the white race, etc.”

    Uhhh, they’re not delusional… That is factually accurate.

    That doesn’t mean one should go shooting up innocent Muslims at their church… But YOU are the one who is delusional and apparently doesn’t know how to read graphs, based on government statistics, which clearly show many countries in the EU will be Muslim non white majorities within only a couple decades if current immigration trends continue! In the US it isn’t Muslims, but a far for broad mix of people completely reshaping and replacing the original European settlers here, and their culture.

    I wonder if you’re just shilling here, or if you’re so stupid you don’t actually know these facts yourself… IMO it’s one thing to say ‘Fuck it!” with America since we jacked the land from Indians… But to just hand wave away the fact that European will be minorities in their own homelands… Not really cool dude. It is not acceptable to just tell them to suck it, because diversity! Especially when clear majorities of normal people all over Europe are NOT in favor of it, just their prog politicians are.

    Racism is not required for simply wanting to preserve ones own culture and people.
