Only our comedian isn't funny and has never made anyone laugh.

 

What is it called when a person causes a million head palms with every tweet? Palmedian?

So after being a prick towards Muslims and immigrants, you feel the need to attack children and teenagers.
All they're asking you is to try and leave them a habitable planet to live on, you ham-faced fartbox.
How about you taking a big bite of shutting the fuck up.

Lara Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law and 2020 campaign adviser, asserted on Thursday that Germany’s acceptance of migrants was “the downfall” of the country.

“It was the downfall of Germany ― one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany,” she told Fox Business Network, referring to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy. “This president knows that. He’s trying to prevent that from happening here, but Congress has got to get their act together and do the right thing here for the American people.”

We must spend a little time on the good news.

Facebook bans far-right groups including BNP, EDL and Britain First

 

Quote

The ban, which came into effect at midday on Thursday, extends beyond the groups and individuals specifically cited as hate organisations: posts and other content that “expresses praise or support” for them will also be banned, as will users who coordinate support for the groups.

The move is the latest in a series of crackdowns by Facebook, beginning in February when it banned the rightwing activist Tommy Robinson under the same rules, and continuing in March when it reversed a longstanding policythat had allowed “white nationalists” and “white separatists” to post on the site, provided they steered clear of promoting “white supremacy”.

A further 12 individuals and accounts have been banned by the site: the BNPand its former chairman, Nick Griffin; Britain First, its leader, Paul Golding, and former deputy leader Jayda Fransen; the EDL and Paul Ray, a founder member of the group; Knights Templar International and the far-right activist Jim Dowson; the National Front and its leader, Tony Martin; and the far-right activist Jack Renshaw, a former spokesman for the proscribed terrorist organisation National Action.

 

 

Oh, and Chase Bank is giving the boot to the newest Proud Boy leader, Enrique Tarrio. That'll learn ya! Lie down with dogs, get up with nothing...because that's the price you pay for being a joker.

Let's go ahead and call this what it is. Most of the mass violence by white men in western democracies is spawned by the anger at their diminishing dominion, an abject rage at losing primacy. Oh, and apparently 8chan is a haven for losers.

One person dead, 3 wounded. Nobody on 8Chan thought enough of it to call the police.

 

Quote

The shooter claims in the Q-and-A section to eschew political ideology, saying he does not support Donald Trump because of his support for Israel. The writer also complains that conservatives aren't violent enough in support of their politics.

Shortly after the post, 8chan users cheered on the poster of the note. The first response encouraged the user to "get a high score." The letter repeatedly credits 8chan with the writer's radicalization.

Facebook removed the profile linked by 8chan several hours after the shooting. Before the page was pulled down, white nationalists descended on the page, leaving messages for the shooter.

This is definitely a factor. I would say that there is another factor at work, and not just on white men in Western democracies. One of the flaws in the modern world, really starting from the mid-70s, is the drastic reduction in the spaces where we can imagine and construct positive utopias, utopic experiments, communities aspiring to utopic goals.  The reasons why we became suspicious of utopia, well, some of them are good, but I think things went too far.  When you squeeze out the positive utopias, what do you have left?  The negative utopias, the ones psychologically founded on individual resentments, the ones that punch downward, that are willing to break the rules and hurt people.

What you're talking about is self-segregation. I am old enough to have seen the results of Jonestown and the Branch Davidians. Your "utopias" are only pleasant for those in power over them...again, look at the demographic. I believe we already have proper segregation for people who believe their personal prejudices should be enforced with violence. They're called prisons.
