Donald Trump Announces That He Will Represent Himself in All Future Trials

Interesting stuff.

The Guardian - 'I think leftism is a disorder: Republicans are the new punk" - Is this artist the rightwing Banksy?

If by interesting you mean incredibly banal

Conservatism is about preserving the power structure always

the clearest way to see this is by observing the positions taken when incidents of police violence go public

100% of the time a conservative will already be on the side of authority and power (The policeman)

a liberal will always go in skeptical of the authority figure

He's following through on Banksy's painfully forced mystique marketing, so the comparison isn't too off.

Banksy's art mocks the idea that it's legal to cover everything in corporate propaganda while illegal to spray paint it's actual anarchist type ideology

Frownland 06-21-2017 03:35 PM

In a way that's more ham fisted than a pig orgy.

elphenor 06-21-2017 03:39 PM

I can agree with that

Some quotes:

Quote:

Sabo now says he is “cautiously optimistic” about the president. “The day I came to love Donald Trump was when I saw how hard he was kicking liberals in the teeth.”
So it's not about standing for something, rather it's about beating your supposed enemies.

Quote:

He claimed Islam was taking over Europe and espoused debunked conspiracy theories: Obama is a Muslim who sought to undermine America, and senior Democrats literally worship the devil and run pedophile rings. “I truly believe Hillary is demonic.”

Challenged for evidence, Sabo cited leaked emails, which online conspiracy theorists claimed proved the accusations. “I’m a fan of logic and reason.”
This is the cognitive dissonance I don't understand. Obama is a Muslim who isn't an American citizen and must provide proof after proof but asking Donald Trump to release his tax returns to demonstrate that his decisions aren't unduly influenced by his financial holdings is a bridge too far. OK...

Quote:

The fan of logic and reason also lamented America’s polarisation. “The whole climate is sick right now.” Asked if his work contributed to that sickness, Sabo shook his head. “The left are the ones who dehumanise.”
Nothing like making 160 million of your fellow Americans into a giant faceless monolith. Both sides are guilty etc., etc. However, the article is on Sabo, so I'll focus on his hypocrisy.


Well, I'm sad now. Thanks, Anteater.

The guy is a walking contradiction, so I just thought it was unusual enough (and Trump related) to share. The idea of the establishment itself being anti-establishment is a curious one.
