I don't think they see him so much as "not elite" they see him as not a "typical rich fuck."  To a lot of people, a rich fuck is so far up their own ass that they won't even talk to someone of a "lower" class.  D Tizzle may either sexually assault you or, at best, be a grandstanding, showboating prick, but at least he'd talk to ya.
More likely they believe "elites" fit this stereotype because the actual elites put so much time and effort into convincing them that elites are not the people who actually run things but rather fine arts grads with horn rimmed glasses and a yen for craft beer and fairtrade coffee who control precisely squat!

Here's one from Roosh's webshite



I have no idea what point he's trying to make.  And why does the teenaged boy seem sad his girlfriend doesn't want a baby?  Most teenaged boys don't want to have children yet.

Exposing the biological clock for the myth that it is?  I know that isn't what was intended, but that's damn near how it looks.

Based on the context I found this... thing in, I am very much in the "not sure if serious" camp here.

This just in: There were no violence or mass murders before the invention of video games! Film at 11!
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

...As far as I know Obamacare has been mostly working ok, but sure let's rewrite the history.

Keep in mind that the ACA was originally Nixon's plan, then it was advocated for by the Heritage Foundation, and then it was the alternative to Clinton's plan proposed by Gingrich and Dole. The "individual mandate" is a conservative position, not a liberal one.

The major problem with the individual mandate is that it forces people to go to the private market without somehow instituting any form of price controls, whether through a regulatory body or by having a competing public option. As a result, private insurers, knowing people have to buy from them, have been able to hike their prices and make a killing from all the healthy twentysomethings who wouldn't have otherwise bought insurance.

That said, if the ACA had included a public option (IIRC it did in its original form but Obama wouldn't use the bully pulpit/threats of primary challenges to get it past the conservatives in his own party) the Republicans would want to kill it in order to "shrink government."

And the real reason for their objection to the ACA is the tax it imposes on people making more than $3,700,000 per year to fund the subsidies. The Republicans are the party of tax cuts, as long as you're really, really rich, and that's a tax they want cut.

Other than your average yearly bureaucratic bullshit, the healthcare I've gotten through the Medicaid expansion that the ACA had was pretty great. I'm pretty excited for Republicans to replace it with "Fuck you poor people, don't get sick." I think that'll be an even better system than going to actual doctors.

Putting all other stupidity aside, apparently Ben Garrison thinks Italy expanding is on the same level as The Scary Brown Foreigners Invading Europe? I mean, the guy's a raving lunatic, but framing Italy as an "invasive foreign nation" to Europe is a special brand of stupid.

To be fair, I think he just doesn't know what Africa is.

I mean he was always a nut, but after all that time he spent fighting off trolls trying to frame him as a neo-nazi only for him to go off and become one for real.

I'm just wondering why some of the countries get to keep their old name or shape while others don't.  What is the logic here?
