Jack is dumb. I don't know if he understands anything half the time.

He does have something resembling a point, though that's less a defense of Trump and more an indictment of Obama. Some of the bad things that the Trump administration did/is doing started under Obama, or even earlier. For example, the inhumane treatment of interned illegal aliens? That happened under Obama too.

But like I'd said earlier, the fact that Trump is letting this continue doesn't reflect well on him. Yeah, I'm against illegal immigration, but I'm also in favor of treating detained illegals more humanely.

And in any case, Trump's done enough shit on his own that I can't say I agree with Dorsey. Obama didn't demonize illegal immigrants as drug-dealing rapists, for example.

Don't forget drone strikes everywhere (including US territory, which has ramped up under Trump).
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Well if god existed obviously not, but logic absolutely if god does not exist. Tell me nazi hater, would killing 7 billion people or 10-100 million people be worse? If you are able to look at an event in multiple angles, the victory of the allied forces has almost certainly doomed the human species through global warming. Environmentalists love to talk about how global warming is the biggest threat facing most living organisms on earth. Surely through a greater-good view, you can see the Nazis being the saviors of earth?
Now please stop demonizing people for being Nazis without 100% understanding why they're Nazis.

...I gotta say, I don't think I've seen "Nazi-hater" used as an insult before.

How even the fuck? Like, is he blaming global warming on the allies, as if Nazi Germany wasn't super industrialized?
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Yeah, if the pagans are so smart, why did Jesus invade Pagan-land on the back of a dragon and kill them all!

A while ago one of the TP USA talking heads commented that Hitler would have been fine if he hadn't invaded other countries. Someone on Reddit got into a long argument defending her. Insisting that the most moral choice would have been to let Hitler do his thing. That the Holocaust in Germany should have been allowed to happen because the only way to prevent it would have been with a war and as that would cause more deaths it would make the war a worse situation than just the Holocaust.

Unlike Owens, his argument wasn't even that Hitler should have been allowed to commit genocide on people inside Germany, but that even invasions by him should have been allowed to happen.

And if he had been a Nazi I would have at least passed that off as usual Nazi bullshit but he really seemed to be thinking that this is a "neutral" and "moral" solution.
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!
