    The guy next to her had the perfect reaction.
    Tweeting something bad about the First Lady is a little below the belt, but this goes too far!!

    Especially since, far as I know, the current First Lady is basically a nonentity compared to Trump's daughter.

    There have been presidents who were widowers who had their daughters (or sisters) act as First Lady, but since Melania is NOT dead . . . .

    Then again, it's probably what she wants. To be left the hell alone.

    Couldn't watch the whole debate video cuz I'm getting a headache, but just to comment, the funniest point Jon makes is: "Nobody wants to be a minority!", and all the non-white people watching the video roll their eyes. It's like he's unable to comprehend that he keeps stating that minorities face some difficulties in life that majorities do not.

    Comey says he hates the New England Patriots, so he's clearly not the worst he could be.

    But enough about that, when are you going to investigate Hillary?

    Also, to the surprise of maybe two people in the news threads, Comey confirmed that Wikileaks acted as a front for information hacked by Russian agents.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Today was cool because I dozed off on break and vaguely remember something about Trump in it, and his admin stomping around powerfully.
    And woke up to check CNN and see brutal headlines for him. It was cool to have the dream suck and reality be great.

I'm expecting an apology video within 6 months or something.

    EDIT: Holy shit, I lost it when Jon said " look at Yugoslavia. It balkanized". Like, redundancy much?
    I'm so not watching that, but what did he say about Yugoslavia lol?
    Was he saying diversity destroyed it? A country that was subdivided between internal ethnic states and featured relatively few truly mixed areas? And those places (Sarajevo) weren't really where locals were killing eachother? And also the place where the diversity was largely overstated as hell?
    Because ok Jontron, if like you want to argue that intense violence and hate between Christian sects is too diverse, man does the US REALLY need to start making sure we choose a sect and stay with it. So I dunno, no more Catholics and Orthodox?
    Because yeah, racists lovvve bringing up Yugoslavia because they only seem to have heard about Muslims being involved. And seem entirely unaware that the nastiest longest term hatred was in many respects between the Catholics and Orthodox. But that doesn't help their narrative does it.

    hahaha it's even worse, he literally says "Look at Yugoslavia. It became balkanized". I probably don't need to explain the absolute ridicolousness of this statement to a scholar such as yourself.

    The whole nation tribalism thing becomes pretty interesting when it's embraced by someone, who one could argue, is not in said tribe proper.

    But i guess it fits into the whole modern off-shot of racism where it's branched out into these "it's not race it's culture vs culture" sidelines.

    Sure feels like there's been a huge upswing in that kind of talk the last decade or so.

    But it's not like i've got any meat on those bones other than a "feel".

    In sad news, ICE now posting a list of crimes commited by immigrants. I think this might be that "V.O.I.C.E thing that trump mentioned in his speech a while back, and its sad to see it become real. I know a lot of people compare Trump to Hilter, but this is literally something Hilter did.

    That's part of why what Jontron said is so bizarre; modern nationalists usually try their hardest to not make it about race, but he jumped right into it.

    True, the historical Nazis tried to hide their racism by calling it antisemitism and claiming that it was rooted in science.

    I wasn't aware of that, but I'm not surprised.

    Is there a website set up to somehow respond to it? A "critical thinking guide" on how to read the reports and what information is most relevant (like "convicted" vs "arrested") could help a lot.

    The difference is less overt talk of the race with it, but the "CULTURAL SPHERE CLASH, NOTHING LIKE US NOTHING LIKE US" was always there.
    How exactly do you think you Europeans were chiefly racist against your usually identical looking neighbors?

    Lol.

    But seriously, there's no need to reiterate his stance on issues now, his supporters will inhale anything he puts out via tweets or his spokespeople. Unless he just wants to keep getting worshipped in person?
