    US politics: No sub rosa Omarosa

    You mean the Freedom Riders could have not driven for days to sit in those cafes and just eaten at home? “Bunch of northern troublemakers just coming down here to stir it up and make us look bad”, amIright?

    Oh, right, now that you mention I do remember your laughing at my pain, too.

    Think this through, mate. What happened the last time the US came to Canada? Right, we burned down White House. Who hates the White House? Donald Trump. Don’t help Donald Trump. Hey, maybe this is his 3D Chess motive for all the Canada bashing?

    Only because you plied us with so much booze I couldn’t tell which Pony was violating me. All I remember clearly is crying for Manny to come back and wondering when dubstep made a comeback.

    Hey Ty: Remember when we were talking about Operation Ajax? Well... 1) Turns out today is the anniversary. 2) Turns out that Trump et al chose to commemorate that horrible self-serving intrusion into Iran’s political life (and the decades of murderous police state that followed) by announcing: http://thehill.com/policy/defense/402205-pompeo-announces-creation-of-iran-action-group-to-coordinate-post-nuclear-deal ...a program whose stated purpose is to ‘see major changes in the regime’s behaviour both inside and outside it’s borders’ so that Iran ‘finally act like a normal nation.’ It’s bad when your most optimistic version is ‘taking tone deaf to a whole new level’.

    The last sentence contradicts the first in the minds of many Americans. Edit: from the ‘examples taken from just today’ file: https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/fox-friends-recalls-that-time-the-us-defeated-communist-japan_us_5b7582b4e4b02b415d76210a

    Yeah, the ‘fear of warmongering’ tag seems an awfully limp weapon to wave at Americans. America has been at war for 222 of the 239 years of it’s existence, and almost all of those paltry few exceptions happened before WWII. War is what America does. Of all the misapplied titles to challenge, ‘peace-loving’ is probably the most ridiculous. Only if peace means constant war ‘over there’. There are serious arguments that the American economy cannot afford peace.

    Stuck in my ways and fine with it!

    You need new ways. The old ones are starting to smell.

    So the Nazis and the KKK, who are not bothered by the word ‘racist’ in the least, are...more racist? Less racist? Your insistence on painting racism as a thing people call other people rather than a thing people are is so consistent I’m halfway convinced you believe your own bullshit. More likely you’re one of those ‘everyone is racist, I’m just tired of the liberals only allowing one side to express it’ types. But wait, are you white? If you are you should recuse yourself from judging any situation involving white people. (...is something only a racist President would say, as opposed to a President ‘accused’ of racism.)

    Oh, preaching to the choir on Ajax (and it’s many facsimiles). But ‘they hate us for our freedom.’ Actually, worse than that is the one that knows Ajax happened but complains about it having been ‘decades’ before the Revolution/Embassy, somehow not getting that those intervening decades of summary executions and tortures are kind of the fucking point.

    Well I’m at least glad that you see how fucked up that is. In a way it’s just how War gets normalized when it’s a national industry, but it’s also a very bad look at American sensibilities.

    More cra cra than using it to justify killing hundreds of thousands of civilians?

    US politics: No sub rosa Omarosa

    Exactly. Or the Try Not To Really Remember the Maine! I mean, there’s a frighteningly long list about which there is a kind of ‘somewhat unfortunate, but...’ kind of post-hoc attitude, which probably speaks quite loudly to how upcoming events will be treated.

    I’m even less sure it would have to be all that convincing, sorry to say. US objectivity in the immediate wake of what looks like a terrorist attack on the US is...ummm...not at it’s best. edit for illustration: https://www.theguardian.com/media/greenslade/2007/sep/11/thirdofamericansblamesadda (and that’s 6 years later!)
