Trump 2018 - Road to Midterms/Nuclear War


#1921

he seems fine, handsome chap too. probably the only good thing trump did was destroy ted cruz’s sense of entitlement to the presidency so hopefully beto can finish the job and drive ted to throw his bloblike form into the sea

He’s about as decent a politician as could end up in that position, I.e. he’s very slightly to the left of Obama.

I mean, Obama was undeniably pretty hot.

i understand what he’s trying to do but i feel like stuff like this could get someone hurt. when irony-free american chuds get triggered they storm pizza parlours with AR15s or drive into crowds of protesters.


#1926

Totally agree. Whilst it’s undeniably very satisfying to wind up mouth-breathers in the internet, in the end all this is likely to do is raise the threat of (possibly lethal) violence against immigrants and protestors. Obvs this poster is not responsible for the actions of others but this is very careless IMO


#1927

Although tbf this isn’t that different from Alex Jones going on about how antifa are planning an attack on Trump every couple of months.


#1928

There’s an iffy story about Beto potentially trying to flee from a drink driving accident.

His positions are pretty progressive (for the US)


#1929

iirc when the rumour went around last year about “antifa supersoldiers” it did actually bring out some proud boys and armed 3%ers, so it’s not like we don’t know how seriously they take ridiculous stuff. that^ is relatively plausible from a paranoid mindset point of view.


#1930

FFS lads.

*Edit - pretty sure Trump supporters will already be thinking that Soros and the Clinton’s planted explosive devices in their own homes in an attempt to smear Trump. America is fucked up.


#1931

According to some folks the right has not been and is never violent :man_shrugging:


#1932

Wasn’t us guv


#1933

Pretty much the same thing as folks in the media courting Pizzagate controversy innit? Obviously it’s fine to do this in a country where most folks have easily available access to arms…


#1934

well this was inevitable really, such a violent climate over there, him whipping up the numpties, so forth. at least nobody was hurt. be very curious to see what conspiracy theories are spun out of this.


#1935

Apparently CNN office in New York now being evacuated after suspicious package is found :confused:


#1936

#1937

Just hoping like fuck that none of these go off. Relieved and a bit surprised that at least one hasn’t.


#1938

is there a chance these are duds sent to scare the shit out of people/test response times? some people saying as much. hopefully they are.


#1939

I thought that too, but that video you posted, whoever the guy being interviewed is he suggested the FBI were saying they are capable of causing harm and it’s not a hoax :man_shrugging:


#1940

ah reet, i can’t watch with sound at work. shit :grimacing:
