Re: POG Politics Thread

This is interesting on the question of fascism:

good list but definitely missing David 'this deal I negotiated is awful, I resign' Davis and Dominic 'I managed to fit the David Davis plot arc into just four months' Raab

Re: POG Politics Thread

Little known fact about David Davis*: DD used to be in the SAS (reserves)


Edit: he's also not very clever

Little in the sense of "Trump's hair and tan are a little odd"

Yeah, I've always thought there was a huge difference between trump and historical fascists. He doesn't have the mental capacity to form any sort of high level ideology. It's his narcissism that creates the picture of a fascist. Or maybe fascism is some sort of ideological narcissism?

Re: POG Politics Thread

I find it hard to get too wound up with David Davis in the same way that it's hard to be really _cross_ with a puppy that pees on the kitchen floor. Like, it's annoying, but you can't expect much better.

Re: POG Politics Thread

Also, I know I really dislike discussing stuff that goes on in other forums, and it is totally weaksauce, but did I talk about the time LordJvK discovered that Fraser Nelson (editor of the UK's prominent right wing magazine The Spectator) was on the board of an NGO with the word 'social' in its name and got so cross that he videoed himself setting fire to a copy of the spectator and then tweeted it to Nelson? That has to be peak Lord right there.

On the one hand I agree that the term isn't necessarily the most helpful to use, but on the other hand, if someone were to appear from the future and tell you trump would be at the head of jackbooted militias within the decade you wouldn't be completely flabbergasted, would you? Like, he definitely has it in him, if not as the intellectual brains behind it, as the frothing at the mouth demagogue king.

Re: POG Politics Thread

Or maybe it's just that mussolini and hitler had to work really hard at being fascist dictators. Trump is just a natural. A fascist savant.

So in this analogy, assuming you are throwing back to yesterday's discussion or whatever, Avenatti = Israel?

Re: POG Politics Thread

I'd just like to know how one can read this:

...

I have never struck a woman. I never will strike a woman. I have been an advocate for women’s rights my entire career and I’m going to continue to be an advocate. I am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing. I am a father to two beautiful, smart daughters. I would never disrespect them by touching a woman inappropriately or striking a woman. I am looking forward to a full investigation at which point I am confident I will be fully exonerated. I also want to thank everyone for their support that has reached out. You know my character. You know me as a man and I appreciate it.
and come away with this:

you're obviously not reading the right (i.e. Breitbart-adjacent) sources

It was first sourced by tmz


http://www.tmz.com/2018/11/14/michae...iels-attorney/

Quote:
We're told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, "She hit me first." We're told he angrily added, "This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***." We're told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

A law enforcement source says on Tuesday, Avenatti "kicked her out of the apartment" and that's when the alleged domestic violence occurred. We're told she went back to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her belongings and called police to stand by in case things got heated.

We're told Avenatti is currently in custody.
Avanetti made those comments you posted after i posted

So continue to act like i make **** up, gjge
