Re: Why, around the whole internet, are moderators such dicks?

I pop in to read some of the leftist subreddits, and when you go to subreddits like anarchy101 there is a new thread on a topic such as "how would an anarchist society deal with crime" every week. They even have a faq.

Apparently Trump actually rejected funding for the wall, because he believes the federal workers are Democrats. https://mobile.twitter.com/funder/status/1083482231841214466 So he would prefer to keep government closed purely because he wants to harm Democrats.

It should be noted that he just said that on the spot without thinking about it, and then the apologists scrambled to find a way to turn it into policy. So it's still a post-hoc excuse, but it's an old one.

Is there any evidence to back that up? No, of course not. Racists just need excuses, not facts. There is nothing about this that involves actual facts or problem solving; it's just that Republicans are a party of people who are united around one thing and one thing only: white male identity politics.

If Trump and Pence were impeached, the Senate would probably oust Trump, let Pence appoint a VP, then remove Pence and allow the new VP to take the Presidency.
