When antifa identify fascists and inform their employers that these people are advocating genocide—another legal and nonviolent tactic—critics balk that this, too, infringes on speech, as if advocating for ethnic cleansing is just a different but equal political belief and if it wasn’t for people demanding accountability that we would all get along.

Bernie Sanders calls for Trump to resign over sexual assault allegations, calls for a "cultural revolution" over treatment of women

Bernie Sanders calls for Trump to resign over sexual assault allegations, calls for a "cultural revolution" over treatment of women
Powerful people should be held to account for being scumbags, sexual or otherwise. But absent a socialist revolution first, their wealth will insulate them, and the upshot of this ongoing cultural revolution will likely be that a lot of small fry get ground up into dust while the fat cats get off with slaps on the wrist (community service, court ordered therapy, donations to charities, …). Not to mention that it's turning into a bit of a witch hunt where people lose perspective. Case in point:
Franken to Resign From Senate After Sexual-Misconduct Allegations
Far as I can tell, he didn't try to rape anyone, diddle kids, etc. He grabbed a woman's but and tried to kiss someone against their will - not even succeeding, mind you. Shit things to do, but they warrant a slap in the face, not this ongoing damnatio memoriae. Same for what happened to Louis CK - never forced anyone into anything, and cries of him having a power position ring hollow. He's a mediocre comedian, not the General Secretary of the Party.

Not only that but letting rebels go in a country which your government want to remove from power? That's CIAniggery stuff going on.

I'm honestly on the fence with this because when I used to associate with aut-right/NRx types a lot of them openly admitted that the fear of getting doxxed was the only thing keeping them from joining marches or taking reactionary politics into the streets. As an added bonus, since the doxx threat keeps the relatively smarter nazis indoors, the ones that do show up are the retards and cringelords that we get to laugh at and spam across the internet
The downside is that it's hard to tell which nazis are clever and should be doxxed and which nazis are dumb and should be allowed to fuck up publicly
Also this, a lot of fascist strategy is loudly demanding that your enemies treat you according to the fair play rules of liberal democracy while refusing to give your opponents the same treatment

fucking man up you /pol/yps, deal with the fact that society still rejects people who advocate ethnic cleansing
My guess is that, at the very least, Islamic Jihad and Hamas will start lobbing rockets into Israel and we'll see another Op Protective Edge

If AIPAC controls nearly all American media and politicians, how come the entire US media has been blowing up over Trump's embassy decision?

After cutting taxes, Trump looking to localities to raise revenue for infrastructure

Even as President Trump and Republicans in Congress seek to cut federal taxes, the White House has quietly come up with a very different plan for infrastructure: It wants to reward states and localities willing to raise taxes or other revenue to pay for new projects.

We're going to totally invest in infrastructure you guys. Really.

What was the benefit of this ban?

Andrew Howard
Andrew Howard

We're already doing it though, it's just that it is voluntary. Selective abortions are on track to pretty much eliminate mongolism in the industrialized world. Other genetic defects will follow once gene editing is further perfected.
Eugenics have historically been crude, cruel, and based on faulty "science". Doesn't mean there isn't room for objective improvement. Humanity is not enriched by having people born doomed to wither away from MS, or choke on their own snot from cystic fibrosis.

Easton Turner
Easton Turner

Doesn't mean there isn't room for objective improvement

There's room for improving the material conditions of human beings, not believing we can control genetics arrogantly and ending up causing more trouble than good, biologically and morally. There is a long gap between perfecting this technology and it being a frontier since it's been essentially banned for human testing.

This sounds very simple, but I would rather not have Gattaca with bias towards traits that could even end badly for those who could afford designer children or whatever you want. And the amount of women who get abortions rather than just use birth control is far lower than you think it is.

What you're saying as it stands is science fiction, and the only people in charge of the industry is Silicon Valley and the Pentagon

Dominic Lewis
Dominic Lewis

Science is about the pursuit of knowledge for the purposes of education, not science for the pursuit of capitalist product where two countries go to war because one created what they claim are genetically superior people

Which could all end in disaster fairly quickly.

This isn't a "MY GOD, WE DID IT, WE'RE BRAIN KINGS NOW BECAUSE OF EUGENICS!" because first of all, nations compete and they''re going to see you as a threat, industry is involved and industry always wants to one up itself; with technology this radical their going to suffer from Industrial Espionage by other companies both in and outside their own nations borders (or perhaps a government) ala Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park.

These comparisons are stupid but once you start a race to the top to get to the sun, everything else you didn't take for consideration is going to drag you down to the bottom when the wings start to melt.

I would trust a biased AI more than I would trust a person allegedly built to higher standards than a normal man.Creating a society like this can go wrong in about twelve hundred different possible ways.

Killed? No idea. But I read somewhere that no witch was ever burned.

Is this true?

Adam Bell
Adam Bell

Is this true?
No. Even if they weren't, in England women falsely accused of being a witch were imprisoned into tiny cells collectively, where they were rarely fed, malnourished; and most became ill with jail fever (Epidemic typhus) and died in droves in the same cell until nobody left inside lived (this was done purposefully at times, but the claim that these mass deaths were "accidental").

So let's say they weren't burned. How the fuck is this any better
