Let us all know when Obama finally gets around to condemning race hate by BLM.


He's not the US president anymore it's not his job to provide moral leadership.


Are you seriously equating black lives matter with the Nazis? the frickin Nazis? the ones who laid waste to europe resulting in 52million deaths? those Nazis? This isn't some Goodwins law scenario here, this is literally the Nazis. You dont get to play whataboutery with the Nazis.

When Micah Johnson shot 5 cops dead because he wanted to kill white people I guess he was just campaigning to end racism against black people yeah?
I'm glad you brought that up, here's Obama not condemning it:

It's quite easy to differentiate here. He acted outside of the stated aims of BLM.

Nazi supporters who kill different ethnic groups or those they disagree with are acting very much within the Nazi credo.

EDIT: Predictably Obama did actually condemn it. Once more the far-right come up with "alternative facts".

No, to be Nazis they would have to be National Socialists who believe in German supremacy. They are a bunch of wannabe-Nazi f**ktards.

Neo Nazis then. Happy? As you well know though, anyone holding extreme racist views can be called a Nazi, they needn't have served at the behest of The Third Reich.

Yeah, looks like he deleted it.

https://factba.se/topic/deleted-tweets

Perhaps someone literate advised him.
That's the one. So do we now have evidence that someone is cleaning up his twitter mess for him? He still let the Posobiec one stand, which is the one the media have most picked up on.

What a very strange thing to post.
I wonder which pot I've just been jucked into, together with 149,074 (the 149,076th would be KK then).

KK is playing Devil's Advocate. He's a Simpsons fan, so he can't be that bad really.

Whether KK is joking/trolling or serious, the harsh reality is that many, many people in the U.S. genuinely share his views. It's fun to laugh and groan here where it doesn't really "harm" anyone. It's another when you see events like Charlottesville and the reactions to it.

Of course you are correct; but is it better argue to against such people or to laugh at them? I doubt they are susceptible to logical arguments?

We now have the comedy starting of Trump renegotiating NAFTA. He gave an overview during his campaign that NAFTA is bad for the US and caused unemployment. He may well be right but what concretely does he want to change?
Changing trade agreements is all about the devil is in the detail but Trump is not a detail man so will not point to specific items to change.
Additionally there was no business group or farmer organisation pushing for changes to NAFTA, basically they like it so there will be no guidance coming from them about what to try to change?

Even if Trump and his aides do manage to formulate a new agreement then it will have to be ratified by Congress. The GOP have clearly demonstrated during the healthcare debacle that they are not united so the chances of them coming together to ratify a new NAFTA are little to none

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Scott Paul, head of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, quit Trump's manufacturing council on Tuesday. He said on Twitter it was "the right thing for me to do."
He joined the CEOs of Merck, Under Armour and Intel, who all left the council Monday.
