    Steve Bannon, Trump's controversial chief strategist and former Breitbart head, has been forced out of the White House.

    Well, that's just going to put the Jew to non-Jew ratio in the White House in a direction the Nazis aren't going to like.

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Jew ain't kidding. They are going to have to Jews some new tactics or they'll be like Porky Pig Jewing gum while waiting for the bacon makin' machine.

    Hello.

    You mean like a shoe smith?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Like peach.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Britain slowly cobbles together a plan for what a post-Brexit world might look like.

    It's going to look just like this.

    The Apocalypse is going to be reasonably attractive.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    Well, half-attractive.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Reasonably half-attractive. Let's say 40% attractive.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Is that convertible to a 1 to 10 scale?

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    4

  • Tom Bombadil||

    Just under 4. Nobody gets a 10.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Spoiler alert: Harvey Dent was Two-Face.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    ^Fist on point as usual

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    ...sexual lubricant maker Good Clean Love is replacing animal testing with human testing.

    I'm not sure I want to know how the old way worked.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    That was a baaaaaaaaaa...d observation.

  • Jerryskids||

    If your lovin' is good and clean, you're not doing it right.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    That was a good one dog.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    It was Mr. Hands' day job.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    Why'd he ever quit?

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    He felt like his life was all give, give give. He decided he needed to take for once.

  • Scarecrow Repair & Chippering||

    Ah, he's running for mayor of Seattle then.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    I'd certainly vote for his corpse over the opposition.

  • Elias Fakaname||

    Well, if they define the word 'human' loosely enough, perhaps Tony could volunteer.

  • Tom Bombadil||

    Remember a female character in the movie "Clerks"?

    Police say the recent vehicle attacks in Barcelona, Spain that killed at least 14 people may have been part of a wider plot.

    And therefore need more broad sweeping police powers?

  • Tom Bombadil||

    "And therefore need more broad sweeping police powers?"

    Only if a disproportionate number of women are killed.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Noam Chomsky calls Anitfa "a major gift to the right."

    Likewise, I'm sure.

  • Zeb||

    It is the most sensible thing I've heard of Chomsky saying in a long time.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Certainly more sensible than any of his Universal Grammar theory. Haha.

  • stuartl||

    It's keeps changing so much, who can really tell?

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    The important thing is that you argue your scientific theory a priority rather then basing it evidence.

  • Elias Fakaname||

    Concerns over antifa could be leveraged into a new nationwide 'red scare'. Which would be a useful tool in ginning up public pressure to prosecute democrats, and members of progressive organizations. Maybe just what we need to crush the mainstream media.

  • Tom Bombadil||

    Yeah, Chomsky is just a small part of the article. An article that describes Antifa's gig as 'fighting fascists'.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Mainstream Republicans have expressed relief at his departure. Breitbart commenters have not.

    Which have more clout?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Wait a minute, why did the first Breitbart not get italics but the second did? Someone needs to get out his Reason stylebook.

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    He was formerly Andrew Breitbart's head.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Just one of many things I loved about him.

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    Mainstream Republicans have expressed relief at his departure. Breitbart commenters have not.

    Never read the comments.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    I haven't cared much about Breitbart since Andrew died, but now I care again as Bannon was my one true lover.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    Kinda looks like FB comments. Pass.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Eugene, Oregon-based sexual lubricant maker Good Clean Love is replacing animal testing with human testing.
    I volunteer! I need some Good Clean Love gone wrong.

  • Wasteland Wanderer||

    It's Eugene, dude. Be prepared to be pegged by a girl with braided armpit hair. Or, as Crusty would call it, Tuesday.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Noam Chomsky has officially came on as Professor at my Alma Mater as well. Fine times.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    He just unleashed upon the room. Said he was "Spreading God's Chosen."

  • Griffin3||

    With his right hand or his left?

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    He dual wield, and I think you knew that

  • Tom Bombadil||

    He's sponsored by Good Clean Love.

  • Stormy Dragon||

    Steve Bannon, Trump's controversial chief strategist and former Breitbart head, has been forced out of the White House.

    So publicly calling the alt-right "clowns" is apparently the Trump administration's final straw.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    I will miss him so much. No one else in the Trump administration had a name with such a high ratio of 'n's in their name.

  • Zeb||

    So now it's even less diverse.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    The entropy of his name was so low...

    Bannon -> 1.79248
    Trump -> 2.32193
    Kushner -> 3.16993
    Miller -> 2.25163

    No wonder Trump was jealous of his beauty.

  • Jerryskids||

    I haven't checked, but I'm assuming CNN is commending Trump for doing the right thing and cutting his ties with the alt-right rather than condemning him for waiting too long and suggesting that this is a subterfuge to hide his attachment to white supremacists and pretend he's not one of them? (I'm not checking, I'm pretty sure I know which way this is going to go.)

  • Red Rocks Baiting n Inciting||

    One of my faaaaaaaaar-left acquaintances on Facederp was spamming a comment on various links complaining about how Trump wasn't the real threat, Bannon was since he was crafting the policy. Will be interesting to see how he reacts to this.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    Finger won't come off the trigger, he'll just move the gun sights.

  • lap83||

    Noam Chomsky calls Anitfa "a major gift to the right."

    Oh, for the nice, respectful activists of yore like the Khmer Rouge. Right, Noam?

  • Zeb||

    Hey, at least they got shit done. What have American radical leftists really accomplished?

  • Tony||

    Uh... heightening the contradictions by helping Trump win?

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Trump will win in 2020 without any help from the left but a landslide would be good too.

  • Tony||

    Oh they'll no doubt be there to help. They apparently don't ever learn.

    So I take it you're not joining the rest of the insane rightwing freaks who are crying over Bannon being out, no wall being built, no Obamacare repeal, and the worst presidency in history collapsing only seven months in?

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Who's Bannon?

    Trump is already going as the best president since Eisenhower.

    He actually wants to make cuts to some parts of government and that has not happened in a long time. He also appointed some good cabinet members who are rolling back decades of lefty oppressive rules.

  • Tony||

    I really must have some of what you're smoking.

  • Elias Fakaname||

    Tony, when you care about America, instead of trying to destroy it in favor of a Soviet style system, Trump's efforts are good things. Unlike the things Obama did.

    But you're an evil progtard, so you aren't capable of logic or reason.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Steven "Low Entropy" Bannon, motherfucker.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Collapsing? Because the media says so? Haha.

    The media tends to be lairs and wrong so much that that more and more Americans are ignoring what the joooornalists say.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    the worst presidency in history collapsing only seven months in?

    Imo, most of this doesn't seem like Trump's fault to me. He hasn't changed his shtick since November, he still just says mean things, and that's about it.

    It doesn't seem like collapsing to me so much as it seems like it's being torn apart. You and your brethren didn't even give democracy a chance, you'd rather see America burn out of spite rather than simply trusting in democracy, America, the next round of elections that are mere months away.

  • Tony||

    What happened in November had very little to do with democracy.

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    Constitutional republics than, jeez. You still never gave it a chance, you and yours only clamored for the death, dishonor, or degradation of your fellow Americans since Jan 1.

    That's what I hate about you fucks on the left and right. No compassion.

  • Tony||

    I gave Republicans a chance in 2000. They started a war based on lies and tortured people, and have only become even more of an anti-intellectual ideologically bankrupt repository of all the worst instincts of Americans, if not humanity itself. A chance. Pshh.

  • ||

    If you "gave Republicans chance" in 2000, you're an idiot. If you decided based on that "one chance" that you gave them that the Democrats must be the Righteous Party to blindly support in all circumstances and that you must go forth and be the biggest dick possible to anyone who disagrees with them, then you're an even bigger idiot still.

  • Tony||

    I never asked to be a partisan. I was a super-special I'm-smarter-than-you independent when I was coming of age. Then Bush happened. And the fact that now that's considered a golden age of the Republican party compared to what it is today only reinforces my choice, obviously.

    The point is Democrats would have to be so much more imperfect than they already are to reach the levels of torture, wars based on lies, collapsing the global economy, being stupid, appealing to racists, destroying democratic institutions, not believing in evidence, and oh yeah, actively working to destroy the planetary habitat of the human species.

    I know cankles and emails are bad, but life is full of imperfect choices.

  • ||

    I never asked to be a partisan

    Au contraire you were clearly looking for a team - it just took you a few years to settle on one. It sounds like you were one coin toss away from being John.

    The point is Democrats would have to be so much more imperfect than they already are to reach the levels of torture, wars based on lies, collapsing the global economy, being stupid, appealing to racists, destroying democratic institutions, not believing in evidence, and oh yeah, actively working to destroy the planetary habitat of the human species.

    That's only because you don't pay attention to bad things Democrats do, on account of being a mindless partisan, because you see the world in starkly dualistic, black-and-white terms and have no interest in nuance or individuality.

  • Tony||

    That's not how I see the world, but that's how our electoral system happens to be. If you disagree then may you be the first to take me up on my long-standing $10,000 wager that the next president will be either a Republican or a Democrat.

    I am however all for the far right not understanding that. Unfortunately from my perspective it's the far left who can't seem to figure out that Jill Stein can't actually be elected president and nobody cares that you voted for her either.

  • ||

    That's not how I see the world

    That is absolutely how you see the world. It's on display every time you post here. Believe me we all know that you lack awareness of this.

    If you disagree then may you be the first to take me up on my long-standing $10,000 wager that the next president will be either a Republican or a Democrat.

    Because the two dominant parties have monopolized the political system does not make either one of them worthy of support. As I have explained to you before, the two parties move in the directions indicated by the stupid irrelevant third parties that you hate so much.

    As I have pointed out to you before, Al Gore did not discover environmentalism until after the 2000 election. Why do you suppose that was?

    Unfortunately from my perspective it's the far left who can't seem to figure out that Jill Stein can't actually be elected president and nobody cares that you voted for her either.

    What a hateful thing to say. But I've come to expect that sort of thing from you.

  • Tony||

    My observation that the American political system is binary can be easily debunked by you taking up my wager and winning. Why does everyone ignore me when I ask them to put their fucking money where their brilliant above-it-all nonpartisan self-righteous mouths are?

    So now you're trashing Al Gore for being an insufficiently pure environmentalist. What even is your point?

    Also fuck third-party voters for being idiots. But if you're a rightwinger voting for a third-party rightwinger, nevermind, vote your conscience. It makes you real special and girls will want to have sex with you.

  • TrickyVic (old school)||

    """"My observation that the American political system is binary can be easily debunked by you taking up my wager and winning.""

    "" If you disagree then may you be the first to take me up on my long-standing $10,000 wager that the next president will be either a Republican or a Democrat.""

    So I just want to clarify the bet. You're saying you don't believe in binary but your choice on the bet is one or the other?

  • John C. Randolph||

    I was a super-special I'm-smarter-than-you independent

    The hilarious thing about Tony and his ilk is that they actually believe they're smarter than most people. The tragic thing is that they believe this entitles them to tell others what to do.

    Fuck off, slaver.

    The Enemy won. Democracy failed. What's so hard to understand?

  • Tony||

    Democracy wasn't given a chance. The Electoral College proved once again what a valuable institution it is. We wouldn't want the popular vote to override the installation of the worst president in history for the second time.

  • Red Rocks Baiting n Inciting||

    Democracy wasn't given a chance.

    That's pretty fucking rich coming from someone whose party uses super-delegates in its nomination process for the Presidency.

    Maybe nominate someone next time who understands how the electoral college actually works, and doesn't believe just running up vote totals on the coasts will ride them to victory.

  • Tony||

    Get rid of superdelegates tomorrow. Like I give a fuck. At least they, unlike the electoral college, went with the actual winner of the vote.

    I come here to get away from the sad Bernies, don't bring their crap into this.

  • Red Rocks Baiting n Inciting||

    Get rid of superdelegates tomorrow. Like I give a fuck

    Well, sure, there's no standards like double-standards. You're not really in a position to whine about MUH DEMOCRACY if your own party openly flouts the practice.

    At least they, unlike the electoral college, went with the actual winner of the vote.

    Hillary won the popular vote in the 2008 primaries, too--maybe nominating someone who doesn't understand how the American electoral process works wasn't such a good idea.

  • ||

    Wait. You're can't be saying that the DNC overrode the popular will of its voters to make HRC their candidate. That would be undemocratic, and Tony would be outraged at that.

  • Tony||

    Bernie lost the primary by 3.7 million votes. It was only his supporters calling for the superdelegates to override the popular vote outcome.

    In their defense, Bernie could summon birds to his lectern at will.

  • ||

    So you've memory-holed the whole Debbie Wasserman-Schulz thing, huh? Not surprising. You're memory-holing the suspicious vote totals and the accusations (supported by the leaked emails) of meddling in the vote totals. You're memory-holing how far ahead Bernie was in virtually every pole leading up to the primary despite HRC's superior machine and sucking all the air out of every room.

    Remember what the Russians did to undermine HRC's chances in the general election? What was that again - specifically?

    Oh but holy hell how you love Democracy - as long as the right person wins.

  • Tony||

    The evil DWS did not steal 4 million votes from Bernie. Why am I even dealing with this crap here? I told you to stuff the sad-Bernie horseshit.

    You are the one with the severely distorted memory. Bernie up in every poll? What polls? He won college towns and caucuses. He never made inroads with minorities. He lost fair and square because he was not the better candidate. Jesus fuck I come to Reason of all places and hear this crap when I thought it had finally gone away.

    And specifically, to name one thing, the Russians spread a bunch of propagandistic lies on social media to make Bernies hate Hillary even more than they already did. Conspiracy theories about DWS, for example.

    Ha!

  • ||

    I told you to stuff the sad-Bernie horseshit.

    And I've told you to stop with the knee-jerk liberal vacuousness, but you just won't.

    the Russians spread a bunch of propagandistic lies on social media to make Bernies hate Hillary even more than they already did. Conspiracy theories about DWS, for example.

    Please be more specific. What specific lies did they tell about poor Hillary? Did they produce no sources for these lies?

    If you're so concerned about the fact that Trump won the election, why aren't you cursing HRC for stealing the nomination when all the polls showed Bernie having a much better chance of beating Trump? Why were there no other candidates besides HRC and the one the DNC was actively working against?

  • Tony||

    Bernie had better polls in part because Hillary was disliked by a lot of people and also because Trump and his Russian friends were at least clever enough not to lay a finger on him in the hopes that his army of fucking morons would keep hating Hillary enough. Or, god forbid, maybe win the nomination and be the most successful Democratic candidate since McGovern.

  • TrickyVic (old school)||

    ""Bernie had better polls in part because Hillary was disliked by a lot of people"'

    Well, at least that part is true.

  • Red Rocks Baiting n Inciting||

    And specifically, to name one thing, the Russians spread a bunch of propagandistic lies on social media to make Bernies hate Hillary even more than they already did

    In this case, "propagandistic lies" being the Democrats' own words and actions.

    "Baby, you can't believe I was fucking your best friend just because you saw me sticking my dick in her!"

  • ||

    And if you're coming here hoping someone will see you as "cool" for dissing on Bernie, I would have taken Bernie over HRC in a heartbeat. Because I'm racist.

  • Tony||

    Probably just sexist.

  • ||

    Exactly. That's what I'm saying. The candidate you loathe was elected. That's a failure of the system.

  • Elias Fakaname||

    Yes it did. You're just too stupid to understand.

  • Tom Bombadil||

    "What happened in November had very little to do with democracy."

    It was all about the Schadenfreude. And that German train was right on time.

  • lap83||

    They make good roadblocks?

  • Tony||

    FTR I think the Antifa crowd are in some ways worse than the alt-right, because at least the alt-right believe in voting for someone even if it's not Bernie Sanders. Fuck, they'll vote for an insane reality TV guy with absolutely no qualifications if it means advancing their agenda. That's what I call pragmatism.

  • Eek Barba Durkle||

    The truly important thing is that they seek SOME kind of boot for their necks.

  • Tony||

    The boot was mostly for women seeking abortions, as usual.

  • MarkLastname||

    Both wildly irrelevant and thoroughly inaccurate, there's the Tony we know.

  • Tony||

    "Sure Trump is a hand-raping racist incompetent who might get us all nuked, but it was worth it cuz GORSUCH."

    Is literally the only thing non-Nazi Republicans say anymore.

  • ||

    I know, right? I mean Trump literally fucks pigs in the public square while screaming out "Hitler was right to kill the Jews!!" and people here be all like "b. . .b . . ..but Gorsuch!!"

  • Tony||

    A bit of an exaggeration but not fucking much.

  • ||

    I know, right?

    I mean here he is, literally running around raping random little girls in the streets, openly calling for genocide of all non Scot-Germans, and finger-fucking nuns in churches.

    And people around here are all like "something something Trump not that bad something something."

    Indefensible, I tell you!

  • MarkLastname||

    It's vital for the country's survival that the major parties know that no matter how much they rape you, you'll still love them in the morning.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    They cannot be anti-fascism when they are for fascism.

  • Tony||

    You don't know what nine words in that sentence mean.

  • lap83||

    He knows what one fascism means, but not the other fascism?

  • loveconstitution1789||

    You really don't make any sense today Tony. Its like you're phoning in the nonsense.

  • Tony||

    It's Friday afternoon what do you want from me.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Go take a nap buddy. It's okay to rest up.

  • Zeb||

    Get a room.

  • loveconstitution1789||

    I know... long week of advocating for tearing down historical markers and statues from the Civil war and prepping for tearing down other things the left does not like.

  • Tony||

    But what does the right like? Can you even articulate what precisely it is that you want? Or are you content just slapping libtards in the head with rubber dildos, which seems to be the extent of your politics these days?

  • Red Rocks Baiting n Inciting||

    Or are you content just slapping libtards in the head with rubber dildos,

    They'd have to pull those out of the libtards' asses first--who wants to risk the bacterial infection?

  • ||

    But what does the right like?

    Why do you come to a libertarian website to find out "what the right likes?" Why not, oh, I don't know, go to a right wing website?

  • Tony||

    I'm asking that constitution weirdo. And this is a right-wing website. I hate to break it to you. It happens to be the only one where I can have a conversation that's not about Soros, other Jews, all black people needing to be killed, how great Trump is, and other such lovely sentiments as pollute literally the entire right-wing internet. Of course that's only sometimes.

    And of course it's leftists who are the real problem.

  • ||

    I'm asking that constitution weirdo.

    Fair enough.

    And this is a right-wing website. I hate to break it to you.

    No - it isn't. This is that thing again where you can't see anything at all as not being either "Left" or "Right." You know - that thing you totally don't do and lecture us about constantly.

  • Tom Bombadil||

    "What happened in November had very little to do with democracy."

    The big question is, how does someone as smart as Tony end up being a socialist/prog? The answer of course is cowardice.

    But be happy, Tony. You getting lots of attention these days. All those years of trolling have finally delivered. Happy jack-off, bro.

  • Tom Bombadil||

    Author's note: Tony isn't smart, but he claimed to be smart about a mile up above.

  • Tony||

    I always get attention, but that's hardly my fault. And a smart person like me becomes a "prog" by not reading fucktarded rightwing internet horseshit that leads me to call people such names as "prog."

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    Fair.

  • Elias Fakaname||

    No qualifications? Like a 'community organizer' with communist ties and communist mentors, being elected president based on a short senate career consisting of voting 'present"? Are you proud of being this big a hypocrite, or do you just lack any self awareness whatsoever?

  • Tony||

    Obama was light on qualifications too but he ended up a successful president anyway. But then he was far more qualified than Trump, of course.

  • John C. Randolph||

    they'll vote for an insane reality TV guy with absolutely no qualifications if it means advancing their agenda

    I think you'll find that most of the people who voted for the Giant Douche did so because your side nominated a Turd Sandwich.

  • Tony||

    What kind of fucking impenetrable moron would think both of those candidates were equally unsuited?

    I mean you'd have to be the dumbest fucking people on planet earth.

  • Procyon Rotor||

    You finally said something true, Tony. Hillary was much worse.

  • Tony||

    And I mean dumber than a fucking starving African baby who's never seen a toilet, let alone a book. You have to be so fucking dumb you will be the star attraction at the museum of dumb. Dumber than is humanly fathomable except for the fact that Trump actually is president, meaning at least enough for a large minority of Americans was just that fucking dumb. We probably deserved to be nuked.

    I just finally got sick and tired of having to wait ten minutes for the site to load, only to have it freeze up and crash half the time I try to scroll down the page.

    But maybe I need to wise up to this ad-blocker thingy.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Which browser do you use?

  • ||

    At work I'm limited to IE on Windows 7, and I'm greatly restricted on being able to install anything at all (no admin privileges).

  • ||

    IE, lol. Hard to feel bad for you.

    Hey, man - it's not my choice. You should pity me even harder.

    And I hate. And I mean hate. Trying to type on a phone.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Yeah, it runs bad on IE. My guess is its an ad issue. IE is not supported anymore by MS and it has its own unique special snowflake Javascript mechanism. Which means that every single website if it wants to run correctly on IE, it has to write its code for IE. The other browsers behave, even Edge behaves now.

    That being said, Reason's Javascript seems pretty iffy at best, as I often get tremendous slowdown issues. So I understand your pain.

  • ||

    Yeah - I notice it's especially bad on IE, and in fairness there are other sites that have similar issues, so I really should be blaming IE and my stupid administrators who won't let us use anything else.

    Sorry, Reason. I was too harsh.

    Don't worry about it pal, Treason doesn't read the comments unless it's $$ time.

    Hey, there's plenty valid criticisms to shit on them for. So you're still right.

    E is not supported anymore by MS

    While they have discontinued it, IE is going to be supported until something ridiculous like 2029, IIRC, because of all the corporate intranet websites that run on it.

    I have the same problem working onsite at a government agency. Is there a way to short the government? Please?

    "Please tell us where you work so I can short your stock"

    Because of their shitty IT or because Square is fucking around on REASON instead of doing his work?

  • Half-Virtue, Half-Vice||

    Let it out Square, don't bottle that shit up.

    It does feel so good to just let it go. Now I know how Hihn feels.

    In Hihn's case it's not catharis, it's confusion.

  • Elias Fakaname||

    I think he suffers from bipolar disorder. His appearances seem consistent with someone on a manic high. Then you don't see him for several days.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    I don't know, and I'm rather not fond of accusing people of mental illness. He is erratic though, and I find that I can't hate him simply because I'm so confused by him.

    Long week of ill news, I dedicate this calming ditty to you good folks

    Enjoy your weekends, see you in the trenches first thing Monday morning (well 1130am for me, millennial etc.).

    Here's a dope song too.

    As always, no political intent behind this.

    Don Hertzfeldt is making a sequel to World of Tomorrow.

    THIS IS BIG FUCKING NEWS, PEOPLE

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Call me when he makes a sequel to Rejected.

  • BestUsedCarSales||

    Which is not to say I'm unthankful for you linking to this as well.

  • Liberty =><= Equality||

    Eugene, Oregon-based sexual lubricant maker Good Clean Love is replacing animal testing with human testing.

    So how am I supposed to know if it's safe for my cat now?
