Not so fun when it's a GOP president who has a sex scandal is it?
Well, to use a certain shout out, with what they did I wouldn't be surprised if they were practicing Word Bearers!

These two are...well, they're sick. I recognize sickness - and in some, it brings attraction to a faith.

This sickness brings them to justify their cruelest impulses with the favors of the divine. They had to be cruel, you see, to remain in the favor of their divine lord. They're never the head, the most powerful, they cast themselves as servants, to justify this sick obsession to themselves - for if they are just doing their work as a servant, what can they be accused of?
Apparently, the parents were "deeply religious".
Somehow, I am not the least bit surprised.

A couple in California have been charged with the torture of their thirteen children, after one escaped and alerted authorities.

Apparently, the parents were "deeply religious".

Religion not only makes good people do evil things, but it also makes evil people do truly horrific things.

I know we say this every time, but Garrison has really gone off the rails.

The accompanying quote really has to be read to be believed:
"The Hole Truth"

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

― Emma Lazarus

These lines appear on a bronze plaque that was installed in 1903 at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Lazarus was a Jewish poet who greatly admired Henry George, an economist who helped spark the progressive era.

It’s an era that brought us the Federal Reserve, the Income Tax, endless foreign wars, myriad social programs, the UN, globalism and the worship of big government.

Many in the Democrat Party proudly call themselves progressives these days, but their philosophy to me is synonymous with socialism. Why can’t we have the best and brightest coming here? No, Emma wanted the ‘refuse’ instead because she enjoyed playing God and imagined herself ‘helping’ them. She was a moral person who would do anything to obtain the fix of being ‘good.’ It must have given her a warm, inner glow to write what she did and the progressives mades sure her sentiments were set in stone in order to make sure everyone knew how good she was. Her plaque is nothing more than progressive virtue signaling.

It has been said that progressives see people as they want them to be. Conservatives see people for who they are. Progressives in Europe (and many of them in America) have welcomed Muslim immigrants with open arms while thinking, “They’re just like us.” No, they’re not. Their culture is completely different. Islam is not just a religion, it’s a political ideology. Its adherents see it as their duty to dominate unbelievers, which they call pejoratively refer to as ‘kafir.’ Muslims love to exploit the stupid kafir and soak up money from welfare programs while also causing crime rates to spike. Many enjoy raping the kafir women, who are asking for it because they don’t wear burkas. Muslims also create no-go zones. They don’t want to assimilate with the kafir. They insist the latter assimilate into their system instead. They insist upon Sharia Law, not the Magna Carta. We don’t need to import disparate cultures with tyrannical ideologies from violent, failed countries. They are NOT ‘just like us.’

In America, President Eisenhower forcibly deported 1.3 million illegal Mexican immigrants under a program titled ‘Operation Wetback.’ Progressives abhorred this ’shameful’ initiative, but Eisenhower’s job was to enforce the law and he proved that it’s possible to deport a great many illegal aliens. In the late 70’s, Jimmy Carter put his bleeding progressive heart on display for everyone to applaud. In a massive display of progressive virtue signaling, he allowed Cuban refugees to come to America. Fidel Castro promptly and laughingly emptied his prisons onto foolish America. In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan signed a bill that allowed nearly three million illegal aliens to gain legal status. Most were from Mexico. What do you think the result was? Millions more beat a path into America to take jobs and get free stuff.

Currently we have another president who wants to enforce the law. Do we have borders or don’t we? Progressives want open borders. Not only do they want legalization, they insist the illegals should also be able to import their families into America. This is known as ‘chain migration,’ but the progressives object to the word ‘chain,’ because they say it hints of slavery. Maybe they’re right—because the U.S. taxpayer becomes the slave to pay for such mindless, progressive egalitarianism.

President Trump and conservatives want a wall on our border—and the immigration laws enforced. Donald Trump is not a big fan of progressivism or political correctness. It’s a big reason why he was elected. The progressives despise the president and hurl the usual names at him, but words such as ‘racist’ and ‘bigot’ are rapidly losing their effectiveness. Those hurling such insults now come across as silly and desperate. It’s not the job of the United States to help people all over the globe by bringing them into America. The progressive Democrats disagree. They know that the wretches who come here and are given a spate of free stuff will almost certainly vote for Democrats.

Progressivism at its essence is nothing more than juvenile virtue signaling.

That’s all it is. But it’s a dangerous form of virtue signaling. They want to help people all over the world and they want you to know they’re good, moral people who will sacrifice your tax dollars to do it. Yes, they’re volunteering your labor to make it happen—by force! We’re talking slavery here. The utopia-obsessed progressives always use government, their favorite instrument of that force, to rob taxpayers at virtual gunpoint to help others. Big government continually grows larger and more corrupt in order to help solve disease, hunger, poverty and crime all over the world. We send aid via vast sums of money all over the world to help the contemptuous recipients, but somehow the problems never get solved! Haiti has remained a dung hole for centuries, while Japan, Germany and South Korea became economic powerhouses only a few decades after devastating wars completely wiped out everything. Could it be that some cultures are superior to others? No. To progressives, that’s bigotry. They prefer to see all people and cultures as ‘equal.’

Progressivism is a form of insanity because they’re not in tune with reality. They have an ostentatious desire to make everyone safe, well-fed, educated, comfortable, and happy. To make it all happen they want to import endless and massive amounts of wretches from shit holes around the world. Most of them will promptly try to change America into a shit hole.

—Ben Garrison

That only gets the hardcore crowd though.  The crowd that has no idea what's actually going on and will never ever vote for any Democrat ever.  That's a crowd the Democrats need not court anymore.  But for the moderates and independents?  Oh boy does that cost the GOP.

Ironbite-and considering how bad they've been doing in special elections lately, they have no clue how to stop it.

Do you really think that the GOP voters will blame the GOP? When they can conveniently blame the Democrats (and probably Hillary as well) instead?

After Fox news and Trump say that the Dems are to blame because they weren't flexible enough and put party over country anyone saying anything else will be "shills" and "fake news."

A politician (well, a backup for an elected municipal politician, so a really minor person) from the Finns* was among those spreading the sabotage ad on FB.

They took it down after one of the party leaders personally told them to do so and tried to defend themselves by saying that of course it wasn't intentional sabotage and asked if there's a rule against helping other parties... Because of course that's the plausible answer? Rather than them intentionally trying to sabotage the party that is pretty much their ideological opposite?

the resident right-wing-racist party. One that was formerly a populist party with a notable racist subset within it but was recently taken over by the racists leading into party splitting 50/50 into a new part as everyone who didn't want to be in a party where racism is the major point left

The early voting for the presidential election is going on here and it seems someone had a brilliant idea. There is an image of a fake election ad with the following text going around in the social media: "Are you against forced deportations? Show your solidarity by writing #stopdeportations in the voting ticket!" The ad uses the old logo of the Left Alliance party.

Why is this more than satire? A voting ticket with any other markings than the candidate's number is invalid. A satirical ad is one thing, sabotaging the voting procedure is another. In a tight municipality or parliamentary election this could have concrete effect on the election results, luckily any influence it might have on the presidential election results is insignificant. Even if the Left Alliance candidate would get a few less votes it doesn't matter in the greater scale.

I actually understand the point they're trying to make but it's completely insane one.

Ironbite-don't try going down this rabbit hole, it leads nowhere good.

I have to admit, I'm not quite sure what "property rights" has to do with breastfeeding.
