    And Disney fired PewDiePie for posting anti-semitic videos!
    This has so many odd layers.

    He's smart enough to know this would be Disney's response if the vids came to light (and he's popular enough that they would).

    He's smart enough to agree that Disney is going to protect its brand over anything and anyone.

    The paper went the stupid route by so baldly taking the videos out of context.

    I feel like the story is being dominated by the context argument when it would be more interesting to simply ask why so many young people find it interesting at all to be so obviously and desperately edgy, as well as why many in the same group find "it's just a joke; you just don't get it" to be a satisfactory answer to any criticism. HashtagTeamNoOne on this thing. Newspaper fucked up in some Journalism 101 ways. And I don't really find the Nazi stuff offensive--just stupid and not particularly funny.

    Breaking news: Lying sack of shit just lied.
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    The first article seemed to refuse at times to actually bash her fully, and both are really long pieces about someone who is at most a Twitter personality and at best another fame seeker, so I didn't finish the second one. Regardless it's too bad as I kind of liked her going after Tucker's bitch ass. Oh well.

    The GOP Senate does nothing, Trump says he has been vindicated, probably wins reelection because whoever the Dems nominate will get picked apart, I'll just keep drinking.

    I wouldn't call this a prediction so much as a fear: that Trump continues to frame this as a coup attempt by the democrats, and one of his cuckoo for cocoa puffs worshipers tries to kill someone.

    He's bringing his shitshow to Minneapolis next week. Not looking forward to it.

    I'm sick of hearing about him. He is a complete and utter fool that has monopolized political talk for the last 3 years (though the Brits have tried to get in on it with Brexit). I just want him to go away and never be heard from again. Whether that is prison, exile in Russia, a quiet retirement, a heart attack, I couldn't give a shit. Just give me back a world where I don't have to think about Donald fucking Trump ever again.

    Highly unlikely to happen, and Twitter is as much to blame for this as anyone else. Same goes for NBC.

    I bet he goes after Ilhan Omar in his word salad, rambling mess of a speach.

    lol see I kinda want him to win just for that reason. I wanna see how far down the rabbit hole this goes. What's weird is that Trump doesn't really do much, or what he does do falls in line with what Democrats supposedly wanted just a few years ago (pull troops out of the middle east) but they freak the fuck out anyway. Or more likely, the MSM gets them to freak the fuck out.

    Come on, man, there is a difference between slowly removing your military presence from a region and ducking the fuck out in the blink of an eye leaving your allies to burn. If you can't see that and want to just handwave it away as "librul hipokrasy" then you are very much part of the problem.

    I mean, lets say my wife wanted me to change jobs from teaching at a uni to becoming a freelance editor so I can work from home full-time. I resist for a while, and then decide, fine, and quit my job halfway through the semester, leaving all my students in limbo and fucking over my school, are you saying that my wife raising objections to this plan would be "freaking the fuck out" because she wanted me to change jobs? No, right? So why can't you understand the exact same thing in the context of what Trump did?

    trans is correct, although the US has fucked over the Kurds before, sadly.
