Might my ass. Illegal abortions are way hotter. In fact, preggo bitches need only hit me up with a PM.

PS Say goodbye to homo-weddings and hello to the feds closing down your legal weed shops.

Don’t worry. I got a plan: VOTE!!!!

The point is Obama has a black poppy.

It’s totally ****ing different. Trump is like white and enjoys wholesome activities like Ms. Teen USA pagents and hanging out with his daughter.

I don't think Chula grasps the concept of fascism. Fascism doesn't care about facts. It's not a concept unique to 30s/40s Germany or Italy. It's a concept that came to its logical extreme in those countries at those times, but it's an irrational "feeling" cult that is only nominally a political movement and is currently in full swing and is not going to go away simply because the right suffer a few setbacks. Fascism is the fear of the destruction of the status quo to the majority when it feels that it is under an existential threat and the right absolutely feels that atm. The right are not staying home.

TBH I think "fascism" is a term that needs to be re-evaluated and given a proper term to apply to the world at large and not simply Nazi Germany and fascist Italy and how it applies to political and social movements that show signs of "fascism" but that's what it currently means and is referencing so we're left with it.

Doesn't really have the right idea to it. Doesn't have the right name at the very least. Populism is just the idea that a politician is sucking the populace's cock. Fascism is specific to the fear that traditionalism is being threatened.

It's not about BK. It's about Trump failing to deliver on promises that got him into the WH.
