Riffing off a recent Elizabeth Warren speech, David Atkins says that Democrats can easily stop their internal bickering. There is, he says, “no contradiction between winning back some of the white working class that defected to Trump, and achieving social justice on the issues of importance to Black Lives Matter activists.” We just have to take everyone’s concerns seriously:
The war within the left is based on false choices and straw men. There is no need for conflict if both sides are acting in good faith. Leftists who dismiss “identity politics” as an irrelevant distraction need to be sidelined, as they are not dependable allies of the Democratic Party’s true base. Center-leftists who eschew economic populism and worker empowerment in defense of the Wall Street-dependent donor class in the dream of an identity-blind faux meritocracy of oppression must also be sidelined.
….If Democrats listen to Warren, they can quickly and easily bury the hatchet, advance in unity toward common goals, and win back power at the state and federal level. Hopefully her advice didn’t go entirely unnoticed.
If it were really that easy, I think this whole problem would have been solved a long time ago. Unfortunately, there are still moderate lefties out there who Democrats need to win—not to mention moderate moderates who they also need. These are the kind of people who are OK with increased regulation of banks, but not with a full-bore Bernie assault on the entire financial system. Likewise, there are moderates who support social justice campaigns, but think that Black Lives Matter goes too far. If the answer is to boot everyone like this out of the Democratic Party, it’s going to be a pretty small party that’s left over.

As I said. There is nothing more racist than saying "All Lives Matter"
IMO, a better takeaway is that saying "All Lives Matter" implies you either don't understand or don't accept the major premises that make up the context of "Black Lives Matter" But I can definitely admit that in adding exception, you leave a lot of room for the kind of dishonesty /pol/ loves so much.

There's a distinction between genuine hate, willful ignorance, and unchallenged ignorance that I think there's some benefit in addressing. You can save arbitrary treatment for arbitrary hate. If a guy can aggree to these contexts and still be a white nationalist, has a king's maze of compartmentalization if they're actually being honest. That Minotaur isn't worth patience unless they show a lot of good faith in moving away from an incompatible belief. And you can talk to the willfully ignorant about -why- they choose their beliefs. I want to believe that you can deconstruct those choices in a way that's palatable to them. And you can talk to somebody who just hasn't been challenged about a lot of things if they don't let their ego stand in for their belief structure.

But this is coming from a person who's awareness of all this spans maybe 8 years tops, with a fuzzy middlish area beforehand. So it's not a topic that I've lost patience with yet. If there's any implication of just how effective Dixie flavored Kool-Aid is: My 12 year old self believed that the 50's were some golden age of morality. It came up once, at dinner, so my parents asked me how much I actually knew about that decade. And when I took a minute to think about it, I realized, not much. Somehow though, that belief was there without any real foundations. I'd gotten it through some cultural osmosis outside of my immediate family. And to this day, I can't pin a source on where that came from.
DNC leadership, for all their ills, aren't communist. You should join the communist party if those are your goals.
there is no real statistic that demonstrates that blacks are killed by police more than average.

in fact it's the opposite, whites die to police originated violence far more often per capita.

What did you feel when you heard the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, chant, “Jews will not replace us?” Fear, of course. Bewilderment, perhaps anger. But I bet a lot of Jews felt another emotion, which they’re less likely to articulate in public: snobbery. “Replace you? Where, behind the counter at Wendy’s? We’re successful, industrious, upper-middle class. You’re the dregs of society. Replace you? Don’t kid yourselves. When it comes to America’s class hierarchy, we replaced you and your kind long ago.”

Pewsey firefighters rescued the 18 piglets and two sows from a blaze after 60 tons of hay caught fire at a farm in Wiltshire in February.
Six months later, farmer Rachel Rivers invited the firefighters back to feed on sausages made from the rescued pigs.
"I wanted to thank them. I promised them at the time I'd bring down some sausages for them, which they were all pleased about," Rivers told the Telegraph.
While Rivers was glad the firefighters enjoyed the meal, she admitted the bizarre show of gratitude would likely be unpopular with animal lovers.
"I'm sure vegetarians will hate this," she said.
Both Rivers and the firefighters received some backlash regarding the sausages, but the farmer said the act was standard practice.
"This is just what we do - we are not an animal sanctuary. We give the pigs the best opportunity and the best life they could have for six months," she said. "They won't be kept inside. They are outdoors and fed with organic food which is grown on the farm."

I meant a real God. You don't believe in anything like that of course.

ok. I really hope you smarten up before the heart disease (which even meat eating children have signs of) starts to effect your body.

Remember people that it's never too late to change to a healthier diet. Even people dying of cancer can REVERSE their disease with a whole food vegan diet.

you aren't funny

and actually no, it's not all. I didn't include a lot of numbers because you people have a hard time grasping ethical concepts as it is.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un celebrated the test-launch of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile last month. A new report in South Korea suggests the North has now developed chemical weapons cluster bombs meant to evade U.S. missile defense systems.


According to a report this week by one of Seoul’s largest newspapers, a South Korean intelligence official claims North Korea has developed cluster bombs that can be armed with chemical-weapon projectiles. The JoongAng Illbo (The Central Times) newspaper reports the North has been trying to develop the weapons as a means to circumvent the missile defense systems employed by the U.S. at Yongsan Army Garrison in Seoul. The official said the North Korean weapons are designed to detonate 5 km beyond the maximum range of anti-missile batteries. The report continues:

>In the face of North Korea’s development, the U.S. military base here is said to have recently deployed the PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement, which has a maximum altitude of 40 kilometers, according to a local military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. A South Korean-U.S. military report in 2014, exclusively obtained by the JoongAng Ilbo earlier this month, showed the allies assessed then that the cluster bombs were controlled by the North Korean People’s Army Strategic Force, and could be attached to short-range Scud missiles, which can fly between 50 to 1,000 kilometers, and mid-range Rodong missiles, which usually fly from 300 to 1,300 kilometers.

Cluster bombs would be employed in the initial stages of any breakout of war with the intent to destroy aviation facilities and aircraft. Adding the chemical weapons component would increase the lethality of such attacks. The same report also noted that South Korean analysts with connections in the North say a “communication ban” with the South has been implemented.


WASHINGTON — The wife of the Treasury secretary on Monday night took a page from President Trump’s social media playbook for punching down.

Louise Linton, the labels-loving wife of Steven Mnuchin, replied condescendingly to an Instagram poster about her lifestyle and belittled the woman, Jenni Miller, a mother of three from Portland, Ore., for having less money than she does.

The brouhaha began when Ms. Linton posted a photograph of herself disembarking a military jet emblazoned with official government markings. She had joined her husband on a quick trip to Kentucky with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell.

“Great #daytrip to #Kentucky!” Ms. Linton, 36, wrote under the photograph. She then added hashtags for various pieces of her expensive wardrobe, listing #rolandmouret, #hermesscarf, #tomford and #valentino.

A bombastic Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail on Tuesday, vowing to shut down the government if Congress did not pay for his proposed border wall and accusing his critics of trying to erase history.
Back in Phoenix, Arizona, the site of his first major campaign speech on immigration, Mr Trump delivered a starkly different speech to his remarks on US military strategy in Afghanistan, made the previous night.
“If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Mr Trump said. “We’re going to have our wall.”


He warned of the dangers of “antifa” or anti-fascist groups — a name that far-right groups use to refer to the radical left. In his speech, Mr Trump used the word “antifa” publicly for the first time and appeared to tie the groups to the Democratic party.
“The Democrats have no ideas, no policy, no visions for the country other than total socialism, and maybe frankly a step beyond socialism from what I’m seeing,” he said.

(CNN)President Donald Trump, in a staggering, impromptu news conference in New York on Tuesday, blamed the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend on both sides of the conflict -- equating the white supremacists on one side with the "alt-left" on the other side -- after his top White House aides spent days trying to clean up after Trump's initial vague response to the violence.

The news conference laid bare his unvarnished view of who was to blame for the violence and what he thinks about the nationwide effort to remove statues of Confederate leaders. Trump's comments were the latest in what has been a jaw-dropping saga ever since the President made his first vague statement on the violence, blaming the conflicts on "many sides." The comments also made clear that Trump's speech on Monday -- which vociferously blamed the violence on the "alt-right" and neo-Nazi groups who initiated the protest -- was largely a sterilized version of his view.


Trump also warned against nationwide attempts to remove statues to Confederate leaders, arguing that attempts to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee could lead to attempts to remove monuments honoring former Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
"You are changing history, you are changing culture"he said.
Trump said there were some "very bad people" on both sides, but that there was some who came out to protest the removal of Robert E. Lee's statue who were "fine people."
"You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, to them, of a very, very important statue and a renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name," Trump said.
Pressed by reporters, Trump raised Washington and Jefferson, arguing there could be a slippery slope.
"George Washington was a slave owner. So will George Washington lose his status? Are we going to take down statues to George Washington?" he said.

You basically are overturning headstones of graves.

This has absolutely nothing to do with slavery because that war was fought 150 years ago.

This is a pure Hatred for Southern White People.
White people are scum. I will shed no tears for them.
How does one define Hatred?
Because the removal of Civil War monuments where often Confederate and Union dead were buried together really makes me wonder, if you're not for UNITY, then what are you for?

You can't have a United States of America while always pointing your finger at White people for something other White people did 150 years ago, and act innocent as if that's not a illogical, irrational Hatred.

It just doesn't fly.
That dog doesn't hunt.

The US was a nation for White people only you filthy colored halfbreed subhuman disease. It's about time we cleansed your kind from our lands once and for all.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has opened a new front in its battle with Amazon.com Inc.

The world’s largest retailer has applied for a U.S. patent for a floating warehouse that could make deliveries via drones, which would bring products from the aircraft down to shoppers’ homes.

The blimp-style machine would fly at heights between 500 feet and 1,000 feet (as much as 305 meters), contain multiple launching bays, and be operated autonomously or by a remote human pilot. Amazon was granted a patent for a similar vessel in April 2016.

The migration to the skies represents the latest volley in a clash between Wal-Mart and Amazon to grab shoppers’ attention, loyalty and dollars. In the process, the companies are increasingly treading on the other’s turf: Amazon is opening physical stores and agreed to pay $13.7 billion for upscale grocer Whole Foods Market Inc. Wal-Mart, meanwhile, has beefed up its e-commerce business through acquisitions and offers like free two-day shipping.

An unmanned airborne warehouse -- laden with drones -- could help retailers lower the costs of fulfilling online orders, particularly the so-called “last mile” to a customer’s house, which is usually handled by a local or national logistics company. To avoid that expense, Wal-Mart and other retailers often encourage shoppers to pick up those orders at the store, where they might grab a few additional items. Earlier this week, Target Corp. agreed to acquire a software company that coordinates local deliveries.

“The core challenge of traffic and driving distance in any major city or in a very rural location can be helped by a floating warehouse,” said Brandon Fletcher, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein. “Movable warehouses are a really nice idea because any flexible part of a logistics system allows it to be more efficient when demand varies wildly.

Jacksonville Beach police used a Taser, a baton and four sets of handcuffs to arrest a man accused of punching a bouncer and walking out on his $235 bar tab on Sunday.

Facebook video of the takedown outside Surfer [the Bar] on 1st Street North is leading some beachgoers to question why the use of force was necessary in the first place, since Christopher Alan White did not appear combative when a Jacksonville Beach Police Department officer deployed the first Taser.

White pulled the prongs off the first Taser, seemingly unaffected.

“Stop doing that,” White can be heard saying in the video.

That comment led to a second Taser deployment from a second officer as well as an attempted headlock, from which White wriggled free.

“I’m not fighting,” said White as an officer beat his thigh with a baton.

White swatted at the officer during the beating.

A third officer deployed a third Taser, which brought White to the ground.

You don't even need pepper spray. In this case the man was drunk and not belligerent. You can talk a drunk person into almost anything. Police need to be trained better in subtlety and persuasion. And beyond that, there are certain holds and compliance inducing methods that don't rely on constant pain - for example, the one everyone knows, where your arm is bent behind your back - it gives a quick, sharp jab of pain, very good at keeping people under control, but you can keep that hold in place without causing any pain. There is no need for a taser, pepper spray, any of that. You might not remember this, but back in the day, I actually knew most of the cops around where I lived by name - and most of them knew most of the residents. Things went a lot smoother, because they knew what situations to expect. Nowadays they're jumpy because almost every situation is unique or at least involves unknown people. This is why it's important that common sense is instilled during their training - it's possible to induce compliance without violence or anything more than the threat of pain. In fact, there's an entire fucking martial art dedicated to this purpose - aikido. In my mind, there needs to be a reevaluation of the purpose of law enforcement - is it to keep people safe, or keep them disciplined and controlled? I'm not saying cops should be disarmed. But their core philosophy needs some revising.
This is one of the smartest posts i have read in a long time. Thank you :)
Can't wait for BLM to claim that the cops are racist because they didn't shoot him because of his skin color.
Christ that video is crazy. Why are cops such pussies, 3 vs 1 can't manage to subdue a drunk guy without beating him up?
>back in my day cops were friendly!
back in the day there was probably unimaginable police abuse that was simply covered up.

as far as pain, the police aren't there to make sure you arent uncomfortable, theyre there to make sure you and the people around you are safe. when they dont know who you are and you're being uncooperative, the fastest way of getting you into cuffs is usually also the safest.

Recall some of the dire polling he faced as a candidate. More than 60 percent of voters didn’t think he was qualified to be president; not even 20 percent thought he had the temperament and personality to serve; more than half of Republicans said they weren’t satisfied with him as their nominee. On Election Day, 60 percent of the electorate said it didn’t like him.
By any historical standard, these were also politically catastrophic numbers, and yet, well, Trump is in the White House. In 2016, the numbers didn’t mean quite what we thought they did.
As narratives of collapse take shape around Trump’s presidency now, the campaign should at least serve as a cautionary tale. It may look like his base is crumbling — and maybe it is — or maybe we’re living through a new version of what happened last year.
Consider the newest round of NBC polling from the three states that put Trump over the top. In Michigan, his approval rating is 36 percent, and in both Pennsylvania and Wisconsin it’s 33 percent. This looks brutal and it feeds the perception that Trump’s base is abandoning him. But is it different from his standing in these states during the campaign?
In each state, his favorable rating is in the low to mid-30s, close to where it was during the campaign. Back then, this was taken as a sign Trump would fall short in the Rust Belt; instead, he became the first Republican since the 1980's to win these three states.
Similarly, there's polling now that shows Trump's approval rating slipping among his fellow Republicans. Are they abandoning him? Or is this just another version of what we saw last year when his negative rating among Republicans looked alarmingly high through Election Day — when they snapped back and voted for him at a nearly 90 percent clip.

Research the internation scheme that killed the entire Czar family. Learn why it happened, and who vowed it would happen. Russia is pro Trump because Russia is against everything the internationalist stand for. You have no idea how fucked everything really is.

This only proves that no one ever liked Trump, they just hated Hillary more. That stopped being relevant the moment the election was over.
A foreign government cannot discuss their prefferences?

They didnt hack the election, if they did it would be relevant, then theyd be a government interfering in an election directly in the attempt to put a favourable candidate in the White House

Now theyre just a foreign govt. claiming theyd prefer the guy who wants to be friends over the girl who wants to be enemies

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Two North Korean shipments to a Syrian government agency responsible for the country's chemical weapons program were intercepted in the past six months, according to a confidential United Nations report on North Korea sanctions violations.

The report by a panel of independent U.N. experts, which was submitted to the U.N. Security Council earlier this month and seen by Reuters on Monday, gave no details on when or where the interdictions occurred or what the shipments contained.

"The panel is investigating reported prohibited chemical, ballistic missile and conventional arms cooperation between Syria and the DPRK (North Korea)," the experts wrote in the 37-page report.

is that even possible?
Yes, but probably not without the help of the Russians. The Russians have the closest ties to the Norks and are pretty much the only ones who do trade with them besides China. They also have close ties to the Assad regime. They likely facilitated this.

At least one person has died and another has been injured after a car was driven into two bus shelters in Marseille.
French police said the car’s driver drove on to the pavement in the Croix-Rouge area north of the city at about 8.15am, hitting and injuring one person.
An hour later, the same vehicle crashed into a second bus shelter in the Valentine arrondissement, killing one person.
The car’s driver has been arrested and police and soldiers were at the scene.
Officers spotted the vehicle in the Vieux Port area of the city and arrested the driver, reportedly a 35-year-old male known to the police for “acts of minor delinquency”.
Police advised locals and tourists to keep away from the port area.
