I fear that my country is going to see a sudden influx of illegal immigrants and refugees from what will shortly be the third-world country south of our borders. Gee, maybe [I]we[/I] should build a wall. /s
Is this just real life? is this just fantasy? Caught in a meme slide. No escape from shitposting. Open your broswers, look up at the news and see. That this is the darkest timeline. We are just all fucked.
[QUOTE=FreakyMe;51102233]So the NSA gives him the black book on the country, enabling him to black-mail anybody important with skeletons in the closet into pretty much anything or suicide. Now that I think of it, I may be misremembering the plot of the movie other than the book, given that I last saw it appended as a double feature before the movie I actually wanted to see at a drive-in, back when my city had one - it just came to mind as an image free-associated as something you would never want in Trump/Pence's hands. I think my subconscious is legitimately trying to do anything it can to find levity in a situation in which I am considering my life, employment, and future housing being forfeit objectively.[/QUOTE] I seriously doubt things are ever going to get that bad. No offense, but that's kind of melodramatic. Absolute worst case, you find you're living among closet degenerates and have to move to a more liberal state.
I still haven't heard who this hacker named 4chan is? It's almost as if the media should stay away from the Internet or make the slightest effort to understand it.
This is why we cannot have nice things.
This election is one big shitpost.
It's time to shut down the internet forever

I myself dislike the term heavily but the whole 'maybe YOU'RE THE REAL RACIST!!!!' argument is beyond stupid.

I wonder if this is how the slow disintegration of Rome looked from the inside.
Well... enough Internet for 2016.

But I don't consider those who want to see the country divided along racial lines fully sapient anyway, so I don't expect much of them.
[QUOTE=Chonch;51101900]Congratulations. Your post is so bad it changed the course of history.[/QUOTE] This is all wickedplayer's fault
Can we please delete 2016 from existence?
Guys, what if 2012 actually happened and this is hell...

The former being intolerance incarnate and the latter naturally compassionate. Those bigots are authoritarian and you talk just like them. I conclude you are authoritarian as well, but whatever.

I forget the names of the documentary but you underestimate how aggressive Trump really is as a person. As I said he has done it before with private investigators when trying to acquire properties. He used the information to bully tenets from low income housing to get his way. I would not be surprised if he uses the surveillance apparatus to its full potential and to his full advantage.

[QUOTE=Psychokitten;51101770]Each day, I become further convinced that this whole election is a bizarre, hellish fever dream.[/QUOTE] I was listening to a story last night as I was going to sleep about a guy who had been playing football and took a pretty hard hit, and got up and carried on as normal. Graduated, got married, had kids, lived his entire life as normal, and ultimately died. Then he woke up back on the field, being carried off on a stretcher. He had been unconscious in reality for only a few moments, but in his head, decades had passed. I keep praying that when I was a kid and did that front-flip into the swimming pool that fractured my skull, I'm just not woken up yet. Please fucking let me wake up.

[QUOTE=Sobotnik;51104784]only an authoritarian deals in absolutes[/QUOTE] 'Only a Sith deals in absolutes.' ... wait, isn't that an absolute?.
I only refuse to tolerate people who are intolerant of others based on race, religion, sexual orientation, etc, and who would limit their freedoms or legal protections based on that belief. I consider them degenerates who are holding the human race back, as science has already repeatedly proved that their views have no basis in reality. If that makes me authoritarian, so be it. I consider the contempt with which I treat these individuals to be a public service. For the record, that contempt also extends to left-wing extremists. The Tumblr-tier SJWs who use bullshit buzzwords like "Microaggressions" incorrectly to claim oppression where there is none, or demand special treatment for them and theirs where none is warranted. Both the alt right and these idiots - I know not where on the spectrum they fall - have demonstrated all the intelligence and critical thinking ability of preschool children, and so I will treat them like children until they grow up. They're a fantastic example of how spending enough time in an echo chamber can turn a human being into useless trash. You see, the left is socially progressive by nature, tolerant and celebrating of diversity. And I respect that view. But that tolerance should never extend to those whose ideals run counter to those very core principles, and who would take advantage of the passivity of that tolerance to impose their bigoted worldview on others who do not share it.
