Seems like this is case closed. He was a White Nationalist, Holla Forums's very own little wind up soldier decided to take their insanity to its logical conclusion and killed a bunch of kids.

He also said the same shit about the opioid crisis and DACA, only to fuck up both.

His words are empty and meaningless.

This is mostly intentional. Contrary to popular opinion (See places like r/politics) the Trump administration is continuing many of the policies of their Democratic predecessors.
What annoys most of the vocal liberal opposition is the optics of the Trump administration, not it's actual policies.
They were fine with the mass deportations and extrajudicial executions under Obama, they were fine with the "tough on crime" three strike laws and foreign aggression under Clinton. It was Democrats that voted for the Iraq war and the Patriot act. It was democrats that wanted to bomb Syria, and crack down on 'traitors' like Snowden or Manning.
They voted to repeal critical finance legislation, they refused to crack down financial institutions following the crisis. They're okay with minimum wage increases being eaten up by rent hikes, health insurance cartels, private prison complexes and imperial aggression. Democrats call outrage, but behind the public spectacle they conspire to bomb Korea, topple Assad, and invade Venezuela.

Just look at the limp-wristed senate Democrat opposition to Trump. They could have forced a shutdown, but didn't. They could have filibustered the tax cuts. But didn't.
And each time the elections come around it's the same story as always: "change", "hope". They could have passed vital legislation decades ago, but haven't. It's merely the bait to lure people to the voting booths. They like the status quo, and only serve to soak up revolutionary fervor that would otherwise threaten the system.
And whenever radical forces rise up to illicit change beyond the official channels, who are their most vocal opposition? Democrats. Always with the same calls for "non-violence", "reason" and "democracy". But most importantly: Encouraging people to do absolutely nothing of note whatsoever, especially anything that might serve to upset or make people question the status quo.
I know this may seem like preaching to the choir, but there are enough quasi-socdems on this board that unironically believe that the dems winning in 18'/20' will change anything whatsoever.

Senate Fails To Advance Any Immigration Proposals


Oh no. Who could've saw this coming.

Up next is the House's plan and you know that's going to be ridiculous bullshit.

And thus Trump created a perpetual outrage machine that gets nothing done.

I have become completely convinced and entrenched into the position that the fall of the US is inevitable. It may take a decade or more before it implodes, but I can no longer see any other path forward.

The mental health issues, the opioid epidemic, the crumbling infrastructure, police violence and the summary executions associated with it, the escalating tensions between political extremes and the pseudo-militias that are being germinated by it, ever worsening homelessness and poverty accompanied by the mighty few bickering among themselves on how to drain the little remaining capital and property that is not under their personal control…
I almost wish there really were an secret cabal such as the Illuminati, and that this was all just a well planned ploy that was well under control, but I am much to the dismay of my kindling depression not quite as naive as those poor Holla Forumsaks.

Once the fire truly rises, I fear I will choose to journey to the New World and take part in the slaughter which in my futile dreams might spawn a new age. Yet I staunchly and sorrowfully accept that I most likely will not live trough it to see the sprawling glory of it.
I'm just so tired of it all. I'm. Just. So. Tired.
