The latest outrage is that America is heading down the road to authoritarianism because they won’t confine people to their homes.  Yes, you heard that right.  Democracy is dying!  Grrrr outrage!

member Shady - so outraged over the topical highlighting/trending of the U.S. Republican tactics to suppress the vote in the recent days Wisconsin primary.

member Shady, can you temper your outrage enough to suggest why the vote couldn't be delayed?

I agree with that assessment.  Democrats have been trying to game the system for decades.  They’ve also been pushing for non citizens to vote.  A combination of that, along with the Democrat Chicago mantra of vote early vote often, would spell doom for Republicans.  If Democrats had to rely on American born voters, they’d never win an election again, and they wouldn’t have won in 2012 and 2008.

when you say, "American born voters"... do you plan to fully open the ShadyCurtain to further delineate, 'white American born voters'?  ;D

I trust you're quite willing to share your Trump/Republican influenced positions in regards gerrymandering... you know, where U.S. Republicans have been (not just trying) but actually gaming the system for decades!

as for your blathering about, "Democrats pushing for non-citizens to vote": per Politifact: No, House Democrats did not vote to allow noncitizens to vote as part of HR 1 (https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2019/mar/13/facebook-posts/no-house-democrats-did-vote-allow-noncitizens-vote/)

I guess you hadn't heard that your buddy Trumpy lost the popular vote by roughly 3 million votes!. It's not the "ease of voting" that would hurt the GOP it would be termination of the completely outdated EC system that would bury them when the peoples voice could be clearly heard.

How would mail in voting change the electoral college?  Regardless I tend to agree with Andrew Cuomo on this.

Cuomo, on WAMC, says there are "downsides" to voting by mail: "It's a harder system to administer, and obviously it's a harder system to police writ large. People showing up, people actually showing ID, is still the easiest system to assure total integrity."

No, American born voters of any sex, race, gender, ethnicity.  I never said that it was pushed in the recent stimulus.  But it’s been pushed at the state level for years.  It’s only a matter of time before it’s pushed nationally.

A Maryland city voted Tuesday night to enfranchise noncitizens, the latest in a growing effort to expand immigrant voting rights.

With a tie-breaking vote from the mayor, the City Council in College Park approved the measure to allow undocumented immigrants, student visa holders and residents with green cards to vote in local elections, The Washington Post reports.

No, I was talking nationally, if Democrats had their way.  What does it tell you about a political party that never receives a majority of votes from domestic born voters anymore?  How far has that party drifted?  It’s sad to see.

Nope.  It’s racist to think that only white people are born in the United States.  It’s also opposite of reality.  But, it’s the classic deflection of “you’re racist” to distract from the actual issue.  Yawn,

I don’t consider them superior.  But I would suggest that they have different priorities.  Priorities that voters feel aren’t being addressed.  That’s why the majority don’t and haven’t voted for them in years.

Hillary Clinton did receive a 3 million majority of votes over Trump. Unfortunately the EC people can still ignore the popular vote. But then they are rednecks too.

Instead of rounding up the Uighur minority and putting them in "re-education camps", maybe China should be rounding up their "traditional medicine" psychopaths for "re-education" instead.

The hot new theory in China is that COVID-19 actually comes from... black people.

The Michigan Crew is what I am talking about.

People protesting because the stores are closed, or possibly because the stores they own are closed.

The 3 classes are reflected thusly:

- The poor working class people who have to risk their lives because people want their Arby's
- The middle class people who can work from home but want to risk going to Arby's once a week or so
- The wealthy and above who own franchises, or stock in the consortium that owns the chain

I mentioned it in a different thread.  I think that an armed insurrection should be met with a hail of bullets from authorities. 

If people showed up to any legislature in Canada with guns, they’d be immediately arrested, and if they resisted, probably shot.

The only reason they’re protesting is because it’s well-funded by right-wing groups.

Trudeau’s failed leadership and failed preparedness and response should outrage everyone.  Not only did Trudeau fail to maintain a proper supply, he’s now forced to lower the standard for importing PPE from China!  What a disgrace.

Depleted national stockpile leaves Canada reliant on China for masks, gowns and other supplies during pandemic

Yes, because Manitoba has similar population density to Minnesota.  Regardless I find it funny when a Trudeauer criticizes Trump for acting too late, when Trudeau acted even later.

Trump is strictly worried about his failing reelection hopes, while Trudeau focus is on dealing with current health issues. What's more important in your little world

Okay. North Dakota then, which doesn't even have a city and has less than half the population. Once community transmission is established, it's very hard to get rid of, and Trump was still calling it a hoax when there was already community transmission down there. That's why their shyteshow is the worst of all covid shyteshows on the planet. Trudeau can be commended for keeping the numbers down here given our large border and their total incompetence.

Nah, North Dakota is doing great.  Btw, regarding Manitoba.  Nobody’s travelling there ever, let  alone in January, February, and March, no offence. 🤣

Trump's response has been at many times stupid and all over the map, but the US isn't the worst COVID shyte show.  France, UK, Italy, Spain etc all much worse:  https://www.statista.com/statistics/1104709/coronavirus-deaths-worldwide-per-million-inhabitants/

People who hate Trump will just hate Trump.  That's why people crapped on him for being a racist for early on banning travel from China, and then was a racist apparently for banning travel from the UK.  He makes the wrong move, he's crapped on.  He makes the right move, he's crapped on.  That's "Outrage Culture".

Not really.  Not when local authorities, like in New York were responsible for disastrous polices like forcing long term care facilities to take in covid patients, and allowing subway systems to become virus spreading incubators that they waited until the end of April to finally clear out and clean.  It’s just a coincidence that the next 3 most populace states, Texas, California and Florida did so much better.  Hmmmm.

NY's deaths per million: 1,197
NYC's deaths per million: 1,489
The rest of the US combined deaths per million population: 117.7

Hmmmmmm.

North Dakota could be doing great but they are incapable of getting control of it. Their numbers are low enough that with sufficient contact tracing they could eradicate it like Manitoba has. Instead, they piss around and let it gradually (but exponentially) get worse.

And tourists generally don't come to Canada in the winter. But Canadians travel elsewhere and come home again.
Duh.

Complete nonsense.  North Dakota is doing great.  The biggest outbreak was at a meat processing plant that would’ve been open anyways, even under a lockdown because it’s an essential service. I remember when covidiots were calling it a hot spot a few weeks ago.  That never panned out.  The mainstream media is very disappointed.  Florida is doing great now too.  The mainstream media is very disappointed.  It’s like they and you want the virus to be worse than it is.  What’s your political agenda?  I don’t get it.

The meat packing plant was in South Dakota. Manitoba is doing great. North Dakota keeps getting worse. Get your facts straight.

North Dakota is doing somewhat better because of population density. (11 people/sq. mile) Unfortunately for them meat packing plants tend to be extreme sources of Covid transmission and many will remain closed. Florida is not "doing great" since the idiots finally realized rubbing up against each other on the beach is not smart so tourism has taken a hit. And their population density is just a little higher (353 per sq. mile)

The Michigan Crew is what I am talking about.

People protesting because the stores are closed, or possibly because the stores they own are closed.

The 3 classes are reflected thusly:

- The poor working class people who have to risk their lives because people want their Arby's
- The middle class people who can work from home but want to risk going to Arby's once a week or so
- The wealthy and above who own franchises, or stock in the consortium that owns the chain

I guess the solution to white rednecks storming the legislature is to have black guys with weapons at the ready escorting in the black politicians.


this is not law enforcement...   just some citizens exercising their 2nd Amendment...   what could go wrong?

The lighting and colour are nice. The representation of the people seems sort of cartoonish and unreal and could use some work. Not sure about the obvious bigotry and contempt towards submissive bottoms though. Seems kind of homophobic.

Does anyone else see a remarkable symmetry of the outrage response in culture right now ?

I see this as being a response to the inadequacy of the media in covering ALL points of view.  "Mainstream" means the middle, and even if it's the middle 80% of views covered, there leaves a lot on the edges that is left out.  New media have been trying to amplify these voices and succeeding too.

Here's one.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/killer-of-edmonton-flower-shop-owner-sentenced-to-6-years-in-prison-1.5689517

Meth-head kills a guy while on probation for another violent offense, gets sentenced to 6 years. But with "enhanced credit for time already served, he will have 2½years remaining on his sentence."

During the timehe has already served, this young man has made great strides in turning his life around:
Quote
Cushnie has admitted using drugs while he has been held in custody at the Edmonton Remand Centre. He has also admitted joining the Redd Alert gang.

"I was angry at the world so I joined," Cushnie told the Gladue report author. "I feel at home here cause I am on the gang unit with other gang members. I am used to this life now."


What happens when he's out in 2.5 years?

Quote
Cushnie's criminal record includes convictions on 31 charges. Nine were for violent offences.

"Mr. Cushnie demonstrated entrenched antisocial and misogynistic attitudes," psychologist Dr. Debra Jellicoe wrote in her report. "He views violence as a legitimate means to solve problems."

After conducting a battery of tests, Jellicoe concluded that without making significant changes to his lifestyle and substance abuse, Cushnie presents a very high risk to commit more crimes and poses a high risk to re-offend violently.

Dollars to donuts, he's going to hurt or kill somebody else. You know it, I know it, the judge and the lawyers know it.   In two and a half years, somebody else's number is up. I have friends and family that live in the area where Mr Armstrong was killed by this thug. I hope they're not his next victims... but if it's not them, then somebody else's friends and family are going to cross paths with this guy, and it's just a matter of time. 30 months or less.

I think that's an outrage.

Imagine being the imbecile who wrote this:
Quote
A new documentary series about the extraordinary story of South African Paralympic and Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius (...)

The Trials of Oscar Pistorius tells the story of the 'Blade Runner' - an international hero who inspired millions with his determination and dedication until Valentine's Day 2013, when he suddenly found himself at the center of a murder investigation.


It's the inspiring story of an international hero who shot a woman four times while she pleaded for her life behind a bathroom door!

He's an extraordinary man who murdered a young woman.

You know, one reason that "suddenly found himself at the center of a murder investigation" is that he murdered someone.


I think the reason this made my blood boil is that it makes it seem like the important thing to remember about Oscar Pistorius is that he could run really fast on his flipper thingies, and posits his murdering a 29 year old woman as sort of an unfortunate footnote to the story.  It has a kind of "Well, aside from that, how did you find the play, Mrs Lincoln?" tonedeaf idiocy.

The BBC got seriously shat upon for this post, as well as for a trailer for the program which barely mentioned that he murdered a woman.

Quote
We have removed the trail for The Trials of Oscar Pistorius that was posted on social media earlier today.

We regret that the original trail did not refer to Reeva Steenkamp directly.

We are aware of the upset it has caused, which was never the intention. We have removed the trail and it will be replaced by something more representative of the series, which examines in detail a number of complex issues connected to her murder.

They replaced the promo with a short blurb that says:
Quote
This four-part documentary looks in detail at the life of Oscar Pistorius, the tragic murder of Reeva Steenkamp and the issue of gender-based violence in South Africa.

Which is slightly better but still makes it sound like her murder was some tragic event that happened somewhere and some time during the Oscar Pistorius space-time continuum, as opposed to acknowledging that he murdered her.  Why can't they mention that he murdered her? Does that take too much shine off the inspiring international hero?

I tried to get a conversation going on Gian Ghomeshi too but it was too politically sensitive for most people.

I'm all for the feminist agenda but a step back is in order so that credibiity is recovered and maintained. I know that doesn't follow your priorities with you topic but it does relate to the title of the thread.
