OK. So the author brings up all these substantial criticisms of the political right in the US and the Trump campaign in particular, all of which are perfectly viable avenues for civil legislative, executive, and perhaps even judicial opposition in absence of any violent behaviour whatsoever. These are points of criticism that are receiving, if Trump's unfavourable figures are any indication, nationwide sympathy in enormous numbers. I'm really not seeing the need for violent action there in light of a substantial and viable alternative path that doesn't involve violence.

The author further cites the Stonewall riots as an example of successful violent action eventually manifesting itself into a peaceful reform movement that aims to preserve the civil and human rights of LGBT people. What the author forgets to mention is that what happened at Stonewall was a direct, proportional response to brutal police crackdowns against LGBT people in the name of homophobia and transphobia wrapped in McCarthyist paranoia, and that where the Stonewall rioters' next move was to establish peaceful communities, protest to receive a fair share of the USA's pie, and run for public office to enact reforms themselves other groups who resorted to violence (such as the more radical segment of the black nationalist movement) ended up becoming criminal syndicates that endure to this day.

The author mentions that the response to the rise of Fascism in Europe was a violent one on the part of the Allies (particularly the USSR), but forgets to mention that the USSR's own formation through revolution entailed spilling the blood of democratic socialists, social democrats, anarchist socialists, labour unions, and anyone else that proved inconvenient to the Bolsheviks' vision and/or power. The author forgets that the reason the USSR and Germany began fighting one another wasn't because of Stalin's fears for Europe's collective soul under the rising tide of Fascism (that was the reason expressed in Soviet propaganda), but rather because Hitler invaded the Soviet Union. What response, pray tell, would Stalin have given if not a violent one to invasion?

I'm with Bernie Sanders on this:


Violence is absolutely and totally unacceptable...Anyone even thinking about violence, please do not tell anybody you are a Bernie Sanders supporter, because those are not the supporters that I want...I understand how reprehensible and disgraceful Donald Trump’s positions are, I can understand the anger, I surely can, because I feel it. The bigotry that is coming from his mouth, the insults to the Mexican community, and the Latino community, and the Muslim community, and women, and African Americans, and veterans, I understand the anger...We will defeat Trump, but the way to defeat Trump is not by violence, The way to defeat him is not by violence of any kind, not by personal harassment, it’s by educating, by organizing and bringing people out to vote.

Clearly the huffpo writer has no idea what the word "liberal" means, since he doesn't respect the idea of people he doesn't agree with being allowed to peaceably assemble.



Most of these "Liberals" are more akin to communists than liberals anyways.


And the "republicans" are more akin to ISIS than republicans anyways. *cough cough*

So you're saying that "Bernie Sanders" should be Donald Trump's vice president.

I don't see how republicans can be similar to an Egyptian goddess.

I believe you are getting the Egyptian Goddess Isis (notice the lack of caps) with ISIS (all caps) meaning the Islamic State.

Nice try though. I can equate Republicans to a few beings though... Satan and a branch of succubae... Minus they steal things other than vitality ;)

You wanna shit post, COME AT ME BRO!

But Satan was an alien that disobeyed his race's laws and freed humanity of the mind control put forth by the controller aliens!

Succubae give you great pleasure and just take a little vitality. Is it really any different than normal women, well I guess women also ask for money so Succubae have 1 up on them.

Someone doesn't read enough fiction. Pick up a bible and some medieval era books and do some reading.

Edit: An original succubae that hasn't been romanticized...
