    it's dangerous to treat the president like he's stupid. he's incurious and frequently doesn't think shit through, but in a general sense he knows exactly what he is doing with shit like this

    The only two things he's bothered to learn about in his life are embezzlement and Nazism and just because he's obvious as hell that's what he's about doesn't mean he isn't dangerous.

    I mean sure but that's got a lotta other weird dumbass shit on it, or things for which there is a greater degree of "plausible deniability" than outright retweeting a dude surrounded by swastikas

    Donald Trump has a sort of animal cunning.

    i'm reminded of hunter s thompson's "eulogy" for nixon
    It was Richard Nixon who got me into politics, and now that he's gone, I feel lonely. He was a giant in his way. As long as Nixon was politically alive -- and he was, all the way to the end -- we could always be sure of finding the enemy on the Low Road. There was no need to look anywhere else for the evil bastard. He had the fighting instincts of a badger trapped by hounds. The badger will roll over on its back and emit a smell of death, which confuses the dogs and lures them in for the traditional ripping and tearing action. But it is usually the badger who does the ripping and tearing. It is a beast that fights best on its back: rolling under the throat of the enemy and seizing it by the head with all four claws.

    e: more of this because it's one of my favorite pieces of writing
    If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. [edited out a slur]. His body should have been burned in a trash bin.

    These are harsh words for a man only recently canonized by President Clinton and my old friend George McGovern -- but I have written worse things about Nixon, many times, and the record will show that I kicked him repeatedly long before he went down. I beat him like a mad dog with mange every time I got a chance, and I am proud of it. He was scum.

    second e: although every single time i forget about that queer crack. man that really is not good, sorry i posted that shit

    Lee Carter is extremely pro defend-yourself-from-fascists-with-blood-if-necessary

    He’s from down the street from me (relatively speaking). He’s been maced by the police at Manassas BLM rallies.

    Oh, I thought it was in the sense of “strange” that the word had before it was used to mean gay. It seems like the definition that would fit the overall thing better, but I don’t know if he would have used the word as a slur, so I can’t say for sure.

    He absolutely would, and did.

    Trump is stupid but not dumb.

    Hateful but not racist.

    He is quite capable of thriving in a specific environment and has spent the last few years expanding that environment with tax dollars.

    He doesn't care or have emotional attachment to any racial dogma besides the simple potato chip racism.

    He dog whistles the steak and potatoes racism because it gets him votes and makes him money.

    He read mein Kampf before bed.

    He had a policy in his early apartments of not leasing to black people.

    He is 100% racist.

    I don't really get why this is ever really a question.

    Actually I was wrong his first housing discrimination case was in the 70s

    So he's been openly racist since the 70s

    My bad

    EDIT: Edited for clarification that there were multiple discrimination cases against them because they still refused to rent to black people even after the first one

    Probably worse. Mein Kampf is for people who want to embody Nazi ideals, book of Hitler's speeches are for people who want to lead those who embody Nazi ideals.

    the commonplace humdrum racism is still extremely dangerous though, if only because you can find it literally everywhere

    even if he was "just saying" racist shit and doing racist things "for money/power" that still makes him a racist

    but there's no qualifier needed, he's a racist full stop

    Because Trump's ideology has always been about money and increasing his "score." Every new bit of data released about him is another angle of him dressing up in the skin of some other group to move ahead and get richer.

    I mean, based on all the data you've seen of hin the past few years, do you see him willing to take a big enough bribe to send Barr to utterly curb stump David Duke, the alt right, qanon, every other part of his base?

    If Dr.Dre and half of Africa came with enough money, do you see him abandoning everything he's preached for the last 3 years?

    TL;DR

    Ideology means you stand for something.

    But lets talk about Shawn King trying to fundraise with Chadwick Boseman's death.
