US politics thread: The crowning of Supernintendo Biden

Oh cool. Will unfollow then (started following because of Snowden etc, I think?)

Snowden & the recent politician are the only two “good” things that I know of from him. There’s a lot of material out there covering his overall terribleness, if you feel up to reading any of it.

Can’t be overstated how much the entire Trump presidency existed just to fleece poor, ignorant people.

I watched about 20 seconds and it just struck me how boring he is. I’m sure he wasn’t always boring but at this stage it’s just like, ach, thank fuck I don’t have to watch the rest of this!

didn’t realise that, i saw him defending Owen Jones against Suzanne Moore’s weird ramblings over the weekend but it may have been a stopped clock scenario

Any thoughts on The Gravel Institute.

Thought this was a nice unsubtle skewering. There’s always gonna be some legit comebacks on some minor details with this sort of thing, but it’s gotta be a good thing to have this sort of breakdown in wide circulation. Maybe not so much for direct conversion, but to shore up those already broadly onside and give confidence when refuting nonsense?

Mike Gravel’s 2008 presidential nomination campaign video is one of the best pieces of performance art ever.

Greenwald is an increasingly unhinged sounding Assad apologist.

Fuck that guy.

He’s… weird. Has a set of opinions that put him at odds with basically the entire rest of the world. I respect the bravery and tirelessness he showed working with Snowden and uncovering the massive miscarriage of justice surrounding Bolsonaro and the Carwash Scandal, particularly given the immense danger he faces as a gay investigative journalist living in Brazil. But yeah his other opinions make him difficult to impossible to like or endorse.

That is… quite the thing. :grinning:

All I knew of him, until reading up on Wikipedia just now, was the basics of the Gravelanche 2020 stuff.

It would be extremely based if Biden’s does this

Found out today there’s a chance I might meet the President later this year
