Trump Loves Murderous Dictators, Part 267: Calls Kim Jong Un “Very Open” and “Honorable”

Politics • Views: 26,546

YouTube

I set this video to start at the section where Donald Trump calls North Korean despot Kim Jong Un “very open” and “honorable.” Yes, that would be the guy who ordered the assassination of his own half-brother with VX nerve gas, the guy who starves his own people and frequently has dissenters jailed, tortured and murdered.

“Honorable.”

The rest of the video is filled with Trump’s usual incoherent rambling and boasting.

Uh-oh, I must have killed the last thread with my last comment!

Anyway, from downstairs, about the discussion regarding “incels”:

re: #359 Colère Tueur de Lapin

Not being in a relationship in not what the “incels” are speaking of. It’s a toxic grouping of people who believe that the “normies” “get all the women” and that they will never find a partner. And, then they group on some site on the ‘tubes and fester and hate.

I’m not surprised they believe that “normies” “get all the women”. After all, if you’re outside the norm, that can be quite intimidating to a potential partner. Especially if “outside the norm” means “creepy entitled asshole” like the people in that Salon article mentioned above.

Of course, they go about it the wrong way. As a gay man who came of age In Glasgow Scotland in the late 80s/early 90s, I was definitely outside the norm, but I didn’t let that stop me trying my damnedest. So, at this point in my life, I have a minimum level of sympathy for these “incel” folks. I mean, come on, like nobody else has ever felt lonely or undersexed at some point in their lives? Also, “involuntary celibacy”? Surely the whole point of celibacy is that it’s a conscious choice and therefore voluntary.

(Also, I’m also aware that “normies” is a favoured term of the “alt-right”, so the prospect of getting into bed with an actual flipping Nazi might also be considered a turn-off for a potential partner. In addition to that, i suspect a great deal of these “incels” are less interested in a relationship and more interested in getting their rocks off. Relationships are hard work.)

As someone noted in the previous thread, anyone can find a sexual partner. The incels want something to bitch about; it’s easier to cry about not having a sexual partner than trying to not be a complete ass and scare away all females.

A note if you see the term “foid” when reading an incel rant - it is a derogatory term for a woman; the etymology is something-something, women that won’t sleep with me are the female droids or something like that.

Many “incels” may be men who don’t know how to court appropriately. They do not realize how their behavior may be a turnoff for someone who might otherwise be willing but is offended by their comments or creeped out by other traits (e.g. lurking) . Guys on the spectrum may have more serious problems in this regard — and Alek Minassian appears to be one of those.

It took me a long time to get laid, I was already out of high school and into my sophomore year of college. I was certainly interested in women, just nerdy and socially hapless.

I came to realize in retrospect that I had probably missed several chances just because I was to clueless to notice women who were signalling me.

Although the Venn Diagram for the Alt-Right and MRAs tends to look like 1 circle, use of the term “normie” does not a nazi make. *Every* subculture refers to everyone not them as “normies” or some variation on that. Punks, Goths, Neopagans, SCA Members, Ren Faire Goers, Fans of Horror movies, Rocky Horror fans, people with Disney Passes… literally nearly every group that could possibly be considered “the other” from the mainstream, uses the term “normie”.

Sarasota, Florida high school student under fire over his racist ‘promposal’

The Sarasota County School District has begun to address the community after a Riverview High School student’s racist prom proposal over the weekend went viral, including reaching out to the Sarasota chapter of the NAACP.

High school senior Noah Crowley, 18, sent out the “promposal” on Sunday over Snapchat. It shows a picture of himself holding a sign that states: “If I was black I’d be picking cotton, but I’m white so I’m picking U 4 prom.”

Officials with the school district responded to the social media poston Monday, saying it was “racist in nature.”

Noah has a future in GOP politics.

As far as I can figure out, incels are upset that they can’t have sex with any woman they choose-and some of them have very high standards for a woman’s appearance, among other things. Naturally that sex would come without strings or consequences for them.

In other words, the “involuntary” part of their celibacy comes from being jerks.

I must have developed that when I was young; my dad died when I was seven, leaving me alone with my mom and older sister.

I guess I just learned to look on women as people to be respected and protected, which is why I could never think of forcing myself on a woman who was not interested or receptive to my advances.

Too few people realize this, and so, while a lot of girls get education on what’s happening to them (or at least they did when I was a kid, as I still remember that time in sixth grade when the girls all when to one of the rooms and the boys went to the playground), boys do not. Not making an excuse, but I think my childhood and early adulthood would have been a lot less chaotic had someone helped me, and I try to get ahead of things with my kids.

As someone noted in the previous thread, anyone can find a sexual partner. The incels want something to bitch about; it’s easier to cry about not having a sexual partner than trying to not be a complete ass and scare away all females.

A note if you see the term “foid” when reading an incel rant - it is a derogatory term for a woman; the etymology is something-something, women that won’t sleep with me are the female droids or something like that.

Doesn’t that make them decels (deliberate celibates), not Incels?

It seems that some of them hearken back to a time when men did not need to court women in any romantic sense: they were chattel given in marriage by their families to the most attractive suitor or taken in wartime as sex slaves.

Or, you conked a woman over the head with your club, drug her back to your man cave and when she woke up, she was yours.

Relationships were so much easier to understand then. Seems some guys would like it to be that way still.

And man caves are still popular!

I know that relationships are a herculean struggle that often makes you wonder if it’s worth it, but that said I’ve never understood this mind set. I want whomever I’m in a relationship with to be an equal partner, “on the same team”, and still be their own person. I can’t imagine intentionally wanting someone else to be fake at best or miserable at worst so you can be happy. If you view your partner in an adversarial way or as a competitor of some kind, that’s not a relationship and why the hell are you in it?

What is the value of their branding as private citizens again? What is an example of a country where this is done so I can better understand the context.

I started out being somewhat facetious, but at the heart of it all is the point that monarchy and aristocracy are social relics that should be abolished.

Germany still has the relics of its aristocracy, but their titles mean nothing nor do they enjoy any special rights or privileges; in fact, those in the former East Germany were quite discriminated against and those whose lands were expropriated under the Soviets (before the GDR was constituted in 1949) did not even get their property back after reunification.

(I know this because I have been translating tons of documents for a landless prince who is trying to recover his property and trying to take it to the Hague and the UN)

There is even a Monarchist movement in Germany that would like to restore the Kaiser, which I find entirely ludicrous. For starters, there was only a Monarchy from 1871-1918, and even to a lot of Germans, they were pompous comic-opera figures with pointy mustaches and silly helmets.

The one ignoring what I’m dealing with is the one okay with me being called scum. The one ignoring what I’m dealing with may not actually be on my side when they become “aware” of the situation.

I’d prefer dealing with the open racist, because I can take measures to protect myself. I had to do that this weekend, in fact.

Thanks. I just don’t know but I tell you this, when I saw him dismiss Southern states and their predominant AA Dem primary electorate as states that were going GOP anyhow while pumping his chest after winning caucuses in equally GOP states but ones much whiter in electorate, I began to see some spite.

re: #136 Targetpractice

A lot of Bernie supporters voiced their acceptance of Trump presidency in public on the grounds that they figured it would destroy the “duopoly,” but the Kos diary and my own experiences lead me to believe a lot of them figure that a Trump presidency will also lead to a halting if not a rollback of those “identity politics” they feel are threatening their own privilege. The worst case scenario in their minds is that Trump simply maintains the “status quo” and gets voted out in 2020.

At the local Bernie headquarters before the election, when the woman who was tending the place was asked about the prospect of helping Trump get elected, her answer was, ‘Good. It will bring on a bloody revolution. We need one of those.’

Not her blood she was talking about.

His age may give him a different perspective. At my age, racism seems to have increased, since I was born in the 60s and my memories start in the 70s (all but one anyway). At his age, he’s seen the terrible racism from before and during the 60s, and will be comparing the present to then. That’s no excuse to ignore racism, but it may explain why it seems like less of an issue to an older person.

In court filings, Delgado claimed that Miller texted her saying Trump campaign manager and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has “shriveled up fun bags” that needed to remain “covered.”

Miller also allegedly said the Moon landing was fake, which he reportedly learned from spending time with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) advisors.

“It really does feel like the Handmaid’s Tale,” Delgado told DailyMailTV. “[The system] treats women, especially single mothers, like mules.”

“As a conservative we hear the term ‘white male privilege’ and we kind of roll our eyes at it,” she admitted. “I don’t. I see it all the time in this case.”

Trump can’t get any good lawyers because the people he’s going after keep hiring them.

Fired FBI Director James Comey has retained former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as one of his personal attorneys, bringing in a heavy-hitting former prosecutor, close friend and longtime colleague to help him navigate his dramatic role as a potential witness in the investigation of President Trump’s campaign and potential obstruction of justice.

Two Capitol Hill sources independently confirmed to TPM that Fitzgerald was serving as a lawyer for Comey.

The hiring adds an additional twist to President Trump’s recent decision to pardon Scooter Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, for his role in the Valerie Plame affair.

Comey, then the deputy attorney general, was the man who authorized the special counsel’s investigation into “the alleged unauthorized disclosure of a CIA employee’s identity” in late 2003, the case that eventually led to Libby’s conviction for perjury and obstruction of justice. His choice for special counsel, the prosecutor who got the guilty verdict on Libby, was none other than Fitzgerald.

You just know Trump took all of 10 seconds thinking about this. His staff probably put together files on the top 2-5 candidates, and maybe even briefed him on them, and then he thought, “The VA - that’s hospitals, right? For veterans? Ronnie Jackson’s perfect! He’s a DOCTOR and a VETERAN! Brilliant!”

Like Carson for HUD - “Housing and Urban Development? Urban…sounds black. Who do I know who’s black?”

Strange in that they haven’t grown tusks. Usually wild/feral pigs will grow tusks in less than a year.

A friend gave me a feral pig skull he had from a ranch where he had hunting permission. The roots of the tusks are almost as long as what you see protruding.

The guys on Pod Save America, who know Jackson from their time working in the White House, had nothing but positive things to say about him. And obviously, Obama kept him on through his second term. Feels like there’s going to be more to this story.

Smells a little like a setup. I could be wrong, since there have been no denials.

Minor news from down under - but what sane person should trust anything trump says

Donald Trump sends incoming ambassador to Australia Harry Harris to South Korea instead

abc.net.au

16 months in - no ambassador & the one that was coming is heading off to South Korea (where no doubt he is very much needed) - yet again there seem to be few who want to work for trump.

Which is why we can expect when he finally makes his way to Pyongyang, Li’l Kim will put a lot of money into throwing a huge parade and buttering up the Comrade Combover…before telling him that there’s no way NK’s giving up their nukes and Donny’s only hope of getting a “win” is getting some minor “concession” that he can argue Obama never would have been able to get.

I tested, and it even works if you’re telling your wife, “My new phone launches Siri if I just say, ‘Hey Siri’.”

I found the switch and turned it off, but that doesn’t mean it’s not listening. I only hope it’s just The Machine listening, and not Samaritan.

Siri also has a tendency to activate when you say anything that is vaguely similar in phonetics to the phrase, “Hey Siri”, which has led to some rather … interesting … drunk-texts-to-Siri in the fish household.
