Politics and Government / Re: Sargon of Akkad running for office

They will stop doing that when the racist meme-lords stop getting them a net gain in votes.

Finland had elections recently and a racist drunk with a history for violent crimes (including sexual assault) has been getting more and more votes each time he's a candidate. He hasn't done anything useful to anyone while in parliament but he's an unashamed alcoholic and a cowardly racist (his campaign car had a slogan that insults immigrants and demands them to be driven out of Finland but when questioned by reporters he made bullshit excuses for it.)

There's a popular movement of right-wing racists in Europe and USA (at least) and so far they are still gaining momentum.

Their leader was arrested for gun crimes. Not for kidnapping people or for impersonating a police officer though. Perhaps they are building a case for those charges? ACLU at least appears interested in seeing them behind bars and may bring the story to news in order to force authorities to do something to save their face.

And we have now gotten to the point where idiotic talking heads are convinced they can in fact run for office. Beautiful.

Keep shooting yourselves in the foot, UKIP. As if THIS is what you needed to reverse your poor performances.

Politics and Government / Sargon of Akkad running for office
« Last post by Skybison on April 23, 2019, 01:31:52 am »
Once upon a time Sargon of Akkad was a brutal conqueror who formed the first empire in human history in ancient Mesopotamia.  Then he disappeared for a while before coming back as an angry sexist jerk whining about how women were ruining video games but giving their opinions on them.  But now he's going beyond youtube and is running for office for UKIP in the upcoming EU parliamentary elections.

Things seem to off to a rocky start with even the daily mail calling him a sicko, but his fans are supporting him with their usual level of rational thought



Will sargon end up in the EU parliament?  I sure hope not but the way thigs have been going it wouldn't shock me.

Maybe people just want to chip in. If there'd been an option to donate to rebuild the WTC, I think a lot of people would've contributed to that too.

On a side note, I heard some idiots have been using this to criticize the French president. Yeah, there are legit reasons to complain about Manny Macaroon, but how was this in any way his fault?
If individual people decide on their own that they want to give the Catholic Church a bunch of money, that's fine. I still think it's about as sensible as giving charity to Jeff Bezos, but at the end of the day, it's their money and they can do with it what they want. It's the Catholic Church going around hat in hand, particularly to governments, that I have a problem with. They have no business begging for money, they can already afford it just fine.

Sometimes, Dpareja, it seems like you and Jack freaking Chick might've found common ground about the Catholic Church.

If Joel Osteen's megachurch's roof caves in, Mr. Osteen and his congregation can pay for the repairs. I don't want a single cent of public money going toward it.

Didn't they just arrest the leader of these assholes?  Of course, it's only because someone was making CBP and ICE look bad by working with random wackos...

Clearly, the Democrats aren't letting him make America great again.

The pre-Civil Rights Act, pre-Voting Rights Act Democrats would have!

If individual people want to chip in, that's fine. My complaint is governments pledging aid for this when the two bodies responsible for the maintenance, upkeep and use of the cathedral, the Government of France and the Catholic Church, have enough money to do it themselves, and said governments could better spend that money elsewhere.
