Political Humor Only Please

Exactly! As if someone disabled somehow loses their right to protest and somehow deserves to be humiliated.

Thanks for the reminder Steve.

I was listening to the White Lies podcast series on the murder of Rev. James Reeb who was murdered in the South for supporting civil rights.

It's a good series and they even managed to get a sort of confession from someone who "was there" to the murder.

Needless to say back then too the racists and bigots used and spread lies and conspiracies that civil rights wanted Rev. James Reeb to die so that they had a white victim who was murdered to get the public on the side of civil rights leaders.

They blamed everyone but the murderers, from the hospital to the ambulance to anything and anyone else.

Seems history repeats itself.

The handicapped are a drain on society fit only to be mocked and exterminated, eh, comrade?

We live in a strange country. People like Tim Cartmell go to Asia and train hard, study the culture and get a lifetime of learning and training. Then you get other Americans, who go there, do and accomplish nothing then basically just become internet trolls because they are frustrated that they can't speak Chinese and could never make a decent living back the States.

Make a decent living in the States is hard perhaps humiliating the disabled somehow eases the pain.

You are making wild and baseless assumptions and showing no intellectual curiosity into the context of a specific event for which you probably have zero knowledge. I watched several live streams and many videos of yesterday's events in Portland and there are individual people on both sides who, in my opinion, deserve mockery, as do both organized sides generally, whose names you probably have no idea about.

There is absolutely no valid comparison whatsoever to be made between disabled Vietnam War vets protesting the war and anything that happened in Portland yesterday.

Here is one of many videos demonstrating why the people in the photograph I posted deserve to be mocked publicly and arrested, which this guy was, one of only 13 for the whole day, which considering the massive violence really says something about his behavior.

I know you emotional women need to have basic information spoon fed to you, so just in case using Twitter is too difficult, I uploaded it to another site that's easy enough for mentally challenged people to fumble through.

"you emotional women" is that supposed to be an insult? Just throwing a little misogyny into the mix for good measure?

What did the people in the wheelchairs do to get arrested? Were they attacking someone?

He is the emotional one. He should be learning Chinese and trying to improve his life but instead he is focussed on every moment in Portland to reinforce his chosen idealogy.

Michael doesn't irritate, anger or sadden me in any way and no Michael you don't make us emotional.

If anything I just feel sorry for you and your empty life. I met many Westerners in China just like you who don't want face the reality that would have to work through back at home. For me it took 10 years to find a decent job so I understand but you should probably accept the fact that if you stopped filling your head with inforwars you would have to face your reality.

I pity you but no need to throw it back at me. I know you will figure it out, for example no one actually living in the US is concerned about Portland. Yeah it's on the news and they sensationalize it but we lives. I say you don't need to throw my pity back at me because I don't dwell on it to me you are like seeing someone get a ticket in the carpool lane you feel bad for a moment because we all do it but then you move on but seeing you go from being a 9-11 conspiracy guy to a full blown hater of anything that doesn't identify with you is just sad.

[email protected]#$ man! You filling your head with hours of livestream from Portland is not going to fill the hole in your empty life.

To a man it might be.

I didn't see any video of them getting arrested, so I think not.

Considering that Trumpsky is trying to start a war with Iran, I don't see a difference between the difference from an Antifa protestor and an anti-war protestor.

You said they should be. So I wondered why.

Here is one of many videos demonstrating why the people in the photograph I posted deserve to be mocked publicly and arrested,


So, if you didn't mean they should be arrested. What did the people in the wheelchairs do to deserve to be mocked publicly? They weren't wearing masks or carrying weapons.

Well I'd rather be a woman than whatever it is you are, that much is certain. Having a conversation with you is like putting slugs in my ears

To have a climate change denier in control of any part of the arctic would be an even greater disaster. Greenlanders would have to go along with the denial. Anyway, they say that they're up for business, not up for sale. https://time.com/4447252/greenland-ice-climate-change/

It's also been quite warm in Alaska, but the msm is busier keeping up with ridiculous tweets. Cool
