I don’t hate him. I want whoever is President to be successful at being a President. Despite a lot of help around him to clean up his poopy messes, he’s failing miserably, although the elimination of one after another of his campaign promises ever coming to fruition gives me hope that maybe he’ll start being a President. “Fuck it, guess I’ll act like a President now”. That’ll be better. Less embarrassing.

[can’t say he’s not a politician: you start being a politician the moment you enter politics. Duh. He’s just too naked at it. You’re supposed to HIDE your idiocies]

======

without the ‘fa’, there’s no need for an anti-fa. Simple.

====

The moment an American died during an American protest event on American soil, it’s game over.

People may continue playing their little shield fight battles and towns may be stupid enough to host them for free on their streets, but it’s time everybody just went home.

Unless you want a police state, ’cause that’s how you get a police state.

====

Youtube’s full of right-wing political maneuvering. I’ll pass. Bad enough I gotta hear my nephew infected with bits of it, although he’s improving.

====

right wing’s been heavy online since AOL days in the mid 90s. The moment it went commercial and commonplace, it was done for.

====

CNN had a short heydey: early 90s, first Iraq thing. But after a few years, 24 hour news became commonplace, and CNN went with whatever politics got the advertisers playing their ads.

Corps only pretend to be left wing when they are. It’s show.

===

Fox in all of it forms was never my thing. They ran a terrible TV channel (I think it’s still on) – killing every half decent show idea with terrible execution, and only ride on their successes that lasted from their beginnings.

THen they launch a news channel to compete with CNN by being ‘for the others’ [right wing]. They’re great when you want a “YAY AMERICA” boost during wartimes as they pump up the “Go Team America” message, but otherwise, I don’t know what good came out of them.

====

I already said CNN sucked. What side am I picking?

Is he ded yet? My ancient ass had a friend in the late 80s who was OBSESSED with GWAR. Pasted posters of Gwar all over the senior room in senior year high school.

I remember they had big props with a big penis shooting goo on the audience and they loved it and I think they always chopped off the head of whoever was the current president at the time as part of their act.

Never saw them though. But I could see their papeal.

===

he’s all fake. he’s just not that clever about it. but a used car salesman personality is able to convince some people that he’s genuine.

i grew up surrounded by scam artists and used car sales people and he’s a regular example. [new jersey]. his techniques are predictable.

===

some republican was getting in. it always follows that pattern. the dems blew it because they didn’t have a chance from the start and they knew it. republicans always follow democrats and democrats follow republicans.

===

i think it’s adorable that you believe in a politician though. nice to see star-struck idealism alive and well.

===

dude, you’re a politician the moment you enter politics. don’t believe the hype, unless it helps you sleep at night.

what he did is give a message of jobs which was good. yay america. good stuff. people overlooked his inadequacies because he was being the “daddy will take care of everything” republican that they always want after the “mommy will keep you under her wings” democrat.

mommy daddy mommy daddy mommy daddy. standard american pattern.

====

You know that line “I’m not a politician, like those other guys, I’m a [x]” is standard political fodder.

====

It’s his 3rd time running. And politician? If you are in business, you are a politician. The only difference is the networks you build.

====

He had plenty of time to prepare. Now he’s in. He deserves the same treatment every leader gets: constant criticism. They all get it. He’s getting it too.

===

They have “business correctness”: don’t do shit that will get us sued unless we’re lawyered up first.

I worked for big pharma for a few years. Fun stuff. Same shit you see in government, just different people. Trump’s problem is he’s getting abandoned by the asses he kissed in the past and those asses he kissed that are loyal to him aren’t the kind of people he’s able to show in public as a politician.

====

Right wing media was for him. left wing media was against him. Nothing much new there.

====

Right love him. Main diff is the right’s moved onto the internet where there’s less restrictions.

====

Can’t believe TV’s still alive in 2017 tbh. It’s some kind of stability I guess. but Youtube won long ago.

White Christian Right’s been dying since their popularity boost in the 80s. Same old faces forever.

New Right started popping up in the mid 90s, getting huge in the late 90s and early 00s, and an extra boost after 2009/10. Spencer’s coining “alt right” in 2008 was kinda stupid tbh because it’s just a vacuous neoconservatism with the outer trappings of conservatism with none of the previous soul, for what it was.

====

I love it. But I’m ancient. Bee online since 17 yrs old in 1989. 45 now. Through every job, even before when they only had LANs, I’d bring message board discussions on diskette and reply to shit when I should’ve beenworking, go home and I’d upload my replies.

It’s awesome. I love seeing the world turn into nerds like me.. and smarter than me too now.

People take their online personas more seriously than their meat and bones personas and selves. I think it’s great. But when people are stupid and bring their internet ideals out onto the streets and march with naked faces? Well, I don’t feel bad for them if they get their real lives spoiled. There’s STILL a huge chasm between online and real life, despite the magic of memes.

====

I’ve been informally studying subcultures online forever. I love watching movements start, grow, explode, then get absorbed into the younger culture or die off.

Studied the bronies around 12/13, the furries after that, the internet philosophers and the alt right from around 14-16, and I learn something each time about how groups operate. Even got myself absorbed in minecraft culture from 2012-2014. Had a nephew want me to start a server and I did and well, it kind of took me over for 25 months. But it was a blast.

====

never cared much about the ‘fa / antifa’ stuff but there’s more than enough people watching. in fact, the moment i heard the term ‘alt right’ on REGULAR news, I was like, “ok, study’s over” and I got out of the political groups I was in. They’re gonna study and mess it all up and I couldn’t watch the shitshow from too close anymore.

====

The difference lies within their very ideologies. Far Right and Far Left actually have very little in common, once you get past appearances. I’d post a link explaining it but I don’t think I’ll be able to convince you. You’re in the category of “one of the smarter people” that I won’t be able to convince.
