General News Thread 2.0


Not much info on it yet, but apparently uncle Diosdi’s cartel moves so much crack that now he’s consuming it. Probably of bad quality.

He probably thinks he can go al “bamm-bamm” on Marco

Funny how the news comes out a day after Nicolasito announced he “would take over the White House in New York”.



The General News thread gets derailed again, I’m shocked!

Play nice folks.


When Trump fail to condemn Neo-Nazis etc (and we know why):

then someone in the stab have to do it for him, again his stab has to come running with the water buckets:

I really hope you are right Anthony Scaramucci and not something you just say because you are mad for been fired:


I really hope he is ousted, and the less insane man, Pence, becomes president.


A coup maybe?

Very unlikely, impeacement is more likely, but we have to wait and see how the Russian investigation is going or maybe if he fail miserably (imo he have already done that).


(SEOUL/WASHINGTON) — North Korea’s leader has delayed a decision on firing missiles towards Guam while he watches U.S. actions a little longer, the North’s state media said on Tuesday, as South Korea’s president said Seoul would seek to prevent war by all means.

I think we can thank China for this, because China said that they would remain neutral if NK attacks first.

This is also good news :smiley::

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Tuesday there would be no military action without Seoul’s consent and his government would prevent war by all means.
“Military action on the Korean peninsula can only be decided by South Korea and no one else can decide to take military action without the consent of South Korea,” Moon said in a speech to commemorate the anniversary of the nation’s liberation from Japanese military rule in 1945.

This means that Trump can’t do anything stupid before he has cleared it with SK first :smiley:.


God works in mysterious ways.


While Pence could probably actually run a country, I wouldn’t say he’s any better than Trump. Escpecially on LGBTQ+ rights.


How is it possible for so much guff to come out of a single mouth?

Here are the “sides” in this, for anyone confused:

  1. Nazis
  2. Literally everyone else

Is everyone to blame when Nazis attack and beat counter protesters? Are the “alt left” equally as culpable as the neo nazi who drove a car into a crowd of people, killing 1 and maiming 20 others? Why do terrorists suddenly lose their agency when they are white?




They don’t.


Then why say this…

If you think “the alt left are also to blame” for that incident?

You’ve contradicted yourself.


From an actual resident of Charlottesville:

"There seems to be a perception from people outside of Charlottesville that what is going on here is two opposing groups coming to town and fighting some ideological battle that has gotten messy. That is not what is happening here. What is happening here is that several hate groups from the extreme right have come together under the “unite the right” banner here in our town and basically started acting as terrorists. This may seem like an exaggeration but it’s not.

A church service was held over because they had surrounded the building and police had to disperse them. People had to be escorted to their cars. My friend was there with her daughter. Everywhere they meet, businesses close. We had drive by shootings yesterday from a van marked kkk.

A car plowed into a huge group of people. I’m sure you saw that on the newsfeeds. What you probably didn’t see is that some of those people were on their way back from helping to repel a white supremacist march to predominately black housing development a few blocks away where they were attempting home invasions. I guess they were unfamiliar with the neighborhood. The residents repelled that one before antifa got there but there is some video of the alt-right folks getting run off on the daily progress twitter feed, if you’re interested.

So, basically, what I’d like you to understand is this IS NOT two side egging eachother on to unavoidable violence for more attention. This is one side of terrorists declaring that they can and will hold a town hostage (they’ve been saying it for over a month now, actually) and the town responding to that threat. The car that killed and injured people yesterday? Ohio tags. The medic tents (which treated both sides… turns out the alt right erst didn’t bring any medics. Guess they planned on doing all the injuring), water bottles, snacks, shade tents (all volunteer, donations, none shut down by police… all manned by that radical left you keep hearing about) yeah, we all live here. I saw a lot of people I knew yesterday, none of them were speaking for unite the right. None of them were escalating violence, most of them were offering some kind of aid and defending."


Oh. So in this statement you were referring to the alt-left of that specific situation:

I thought you were referring to the alt-left in general. Well, let me re-answer that question in this new context.
The alt-lefts from that situation are still culpable. They shouldn’t be vandalizing Charlottesville. Same goes for the alt-rights. And there certainly shouldn’t be plowed a car into a group of people.

Just to be sure, I googled the meaning of ‘lose their agency’, and I think you meant 'lose their SENSE of agency. In that case, let me say this: Not a single terrorist has a sense of agency. It is utter nonsense to make this a skin-pigmentation issue.


Can someone explain who the alt-left is? It seems like a meaningless term to use


Vandalizing statues is the same as vehicular homicide and assault with a deadly weapon.

Yeah I know these guys are taking and endangering human lives, but listen the other guys tore down a statue-not cool-not cool bro.

but what about but what about the statues? Statues lives matter.

Those guys should not have been removing those statues, and yeah I guess the other guys should not have beat that man like that.

But you know what. The ring leader of the statue removal has been arrested. Ask me if the young men assaulting a guy in parking garage have been arrested. LOL you won’t cause you know they haven’t.

But those guys they shouldn’t have been messing with statues.


My powers of prophesy indicate your discussion with Quinn (which is what it is now for the time being) will lead this thread on a tangent resulting in yet another derailment.

It’s all good and well to discuss these things, but when members come in here they shouldn’t be welcomed by long two-sided discussions which are best suited somewhere else. Create a new topic. Send a PM.


Taking a journalism class this semester due to…circumstances.

Very timely looks like, I will be following the AP’s lead and purging my use of the term ‘alt-right’ and just tell the truth and shame the devil.

Associated Press defines ‘alt-right’ :

A political grouping or tendency mixing racism, white nationalism and populism; a name currently embraced by some white supremacists and white nationalists to refer to themselves and their ideology, which emphasizes preserving and protecting the white race in the United States.

So instead of ‘Alt-right’ I will just call them by their formal name. White Supremacists.


Tl;dr incoming, but important. List of crimes attributable to neo nazis, alt right, etc.If the best you have for this imaginary “alt left” thing is property damage, good luck making the compariaon between them and the Nazis with a straight face.
