By way of reminder:

Quote
Pussies don't like dicks because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes. Assholes that just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck a asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is they fuck too much or fuck when it isn't appropriate. And it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes pussies can be so full of shit that they become assholes themselves. Because pussies are a inch and half away from assholes.

Roger Ebert had this to say about the film:

Quote
If I were asked to extract a political position from the movie, I'd be baffled. It is neither for nor against the war on terrorism, just dedicated to ridiculing those who wage it and those who oppose it. The White House gets a free pass, since the movie seems to think Team America makes its own policies without political direction.

I wasn't offended by the movie's content so much as by its nihilism. At a time when the world is in crisis and the country faces an important election, the response of Parker, Stone and company is to sneer at both sides -- indeed, at anyone who takes the current world situation seriously. They may be right that some of us are puppets, but they're wrong that all of us are fools, and dead wrong that it doesn't matter.

Also note that the film makes fun of Sean Penn because Penn wrote a rebuttal to Trey and Parker who had wrote in a newspaper that there's nothing wrong with not voting. Basically, the duo hates anything that isn't apathy and make fun of anyone who cares about anything.
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!

Short bus nihilists, basically.  They get as far as "there isn't any inherent meaning to anything," then got distracted by a fresh batch of tendies.

The Bible is the big book of multiple choice.

(personally I'd say "moral multiple choice")

It was refreshing to read this, after years of hearing people saying we should empathise with right wingers (including Queenslanders in my own country who voted One Nation and PUP) someone went and wrote a piece on why empathy as well as not being perfect, can just further entrench the power of the powerful.

Quote
Why demand empathy for the white, male, relatively affluent people who got exactly what they wanted? Why not instead point out the need to empathize with black women, who are, as a group, massively impoverished and discriminated against, and who voted against Trump almost uniformly?

Quote
...there is no magic shortcut to unity or consensus. Neither empathy nor rational compassion can rescue us from partisanship. Political problems require political solutions.

I like the call for Solidarity at the end. I think that's something that parties which are meant to be on the left of the spectrum should embrace.

Speaking of which, here's a criticism of Trump's evangelical supporters I particularly like:

Quote
The argument that Falwell and others are making is that if even a man as flawed as David could be favored by God, then Trump for all of his own moral failings could be an acceptable president as well:

"God called King David a man after God’s own heart even though he was an adulterer and a murderer,”

"You have to choose the leader that would make the best king or president and not necessarily someone who would be a good pastor.

But the problem with that is that God didn't call the wicked David. He called the brave and selfless David. Wicked David got the prophet Nathan telling him just how completely he fucked up and what God was going to do about it, and then David repented.

And Trump has never been brave or selfless. He's never been David. Both Judaism and Christianity agree that David had free will--his sin was his own.

Which is why these Evangelicals have outed themselves so badly here--it is their responsibility to rebuke Trump like Nathan rebuked David. To say they won't, because he'll give them this, that or the other thing is to in essence put their desires above the will of God.

And of course there's the minor fact that they're sort of ignoring most of the NT, which has some fairly harsh things to say about using God for your own purposes. After all, Trump has offered the religious right everything they want, if only they serve as his cheerleaders.

What was the 'sauce' for that? I've seen a bit of the Evangelicals criticising each other over Trump. There was an article about in 'The Week' the other day. Although the criticism is interesting because you realise even though you agree with them on this one thing, how you think is poles apart.

Here is one from the Graun:

And the one from The Week:

Why because I was going to read the whole article if it was part of a bigger opinion piece.
