Ah, Jim Bakkker. Some of his greatest hits include:
Some of those who oppose Donald Trump are demon possessed and have demons coming out of their eyes. Source
A suicide bombing in Manchester, England killed 22 and injured 59, some seriously. Bakker claims the victims brought it on themselves because they attended the concert where the bombing happened and the title, "Dangerous Women Tour" somehow mocked God. Victims included children. Source
If Donald Trump is impeached from office, Christians will rise up and start a civil war. Source
Did Trump even bother with the usual republican pandering to conservative christians, or is this just the manifestation of blind support the party has built up in them over the years?
I think he had a few ministers place his hands over him and "bless" him at Trump Tower or some shit. But that was about it. Mostly, he is as racist as they are and they like that.
I don't get why this "water+" bullshit wasn't just called soda. That's what it is, right? It's carbonated, sweetened, flavored water. The people who sell them just don't want to be associated with soda's nasty implications.
100% sure it's just municipal tap water
This is just mineral water. It doesn't have any sugar its just super pretentious marketing trying to make it seem like wine. Though carbonated mineral water does taste better than your garden variety tap water.
the repetitiveness shows how BS artisan descriptions are
I cannot comprehend how or why so much of the lower working class was tricked into thinking that a billionaire would have THEIR interests in mind
I want to know how they think moves like these, which make access to education harder, and make the rich even more ridiculously wealthy, are moves that will benefit them in any way
And honestly after the election of Trump why would they even pretend otherwise? The guys who were pulling strings are literally in office now with a base who have become increasingly radicalized.
As the child of two MAJOR Trump Supporters, I think I know part of the answer.
Racism is a huge one. As a country, we have never meaningfully been anti-racism. We just demanded people talked and behaved better in public. Also, they hate the Clintons more than they hate the Democratic Party which is really saying something. My father felt as though the Clintons, and therefore the Democrats, don't care about working people. And, honestly, I agree but to ever find your answers in the GOP is beyond me. You combine those two things with the real, strong, desire to be lorded over by a white guy in a suit and you have a vote for Trump.
If I may, I was republican until 2008 and a solid independent-republican voter until the 2016 republican primary. In that primary it became evident that (with Trumps absolute unveiling) that this party was not only comprised of entirely self-interested vampires, but more importantly a party that HATES working class citizens.
It seems absurd from the outside looking in that I hung around for so long. I have always been against the grain when considering my social-left views and I've always admired blue collar laborers. The truth is tho that I always justified my support of the GOP as pragmatic for no other reason than "you know what you're gonna get with these guys, so you might as well elect them and try to be civically engaged." It wasn't until last year that with the GOP I realized it isn't just about lining their coffers: they actually hate a vast majority of people.

I'm just here so I won't get fined.

This may be a repost, but it's perfectly timed.
I can also tell by the reports this repost is getting that a banned brocialist is especially upset about his ban.
I banned from /sub/explainlikeimfive because I tried posting once and didn't put "ELI5" in the title.....
But God doesn't build in straight lines so angles aren't God's thing. 😅😆 Why spelling matters.
So many levels.

☐ Capitalist but "Hillary Clinton is a lifestyle"

OH good lord I used to be the gmod rekt guy in high school. Stay woke friends.
You think Zuck is going to encourage his enemies to use his platform?
Fuck Zuck, modern techno-tsar will get what’s coming for him.
Because they like weed, duh! /s
A colleague of mine was dealing with a customer today who had their disability benefits cut because they were in hospital after having a heart attack. Turns out that because it's for living costs they don't pay it when you're staying in hospital. The UK benefits system is a disgrace and has been criticised by the U.N..

Pretty bad when a "disgraceful" system is miles ahead of my own governments.
Where are you from? It really is tragic that your nations social service sucks, but this isn't a competition. In the UK we've known better and have had functional working social systems in place for decades. The Tory party & their bourgeois newspaper allies are targeting the poor & regressing our society. All in the name of lining their pockets so they can buy one more luxury offshore jet.
We have it for now but there is an active campaign to privatise healthcare, with the current government deliberately underfunding it to make it look ineffective. Very depressing.
That is quite apt. I thought they were something else. You get fooled by their "freedom" talk but it's goal is not to address inequality once such freedom has been attained but to keep the board game unchanged so that they can freeze it while they are successful.
It's a tool to keep the status quo through buzzwords. I fell for a for a time. It took a while to see past the great ideology of freedom from tyranny of the state , which is just transfer of power from we the people to they the corporations.
Horrid shit. And they can fool people with that faux constitutional freedoms they preach.
its one of the worst ideologies in history
You are correct, propertarians aren't actually libertarians which is a socialist ideology.
The image is referencing the current norm in America of 'libertarian' standing for 'right-wing libertarian' defining morality through property rights.

Hello, i would like 1 global revolution please.
that'll be $0.00, comrade.
Jesus, this reads so much like someone trying to bolster their reputation after serious damage. This is the same Donna Brazile who, as an employee of CNN and interim DNC chair, leaked CNN debate questions to the Clinton campaign, essentially causing her to lose both of these jobs, something she conveniently doesn't address in this breathless exposé.
The content of what she alleges is serious and troubling. Who knows what would've happened had the DNC been more impartial. I believe she still would've won the nomination, it wasn't that close in the end, and she started out as a huge favorite with far more name recognition and credentials to the Democratic Party base. But, who knows. I think the campaigns decision to put their thumb on the scale hurt them more than helped them honestly; Bernie brought in new voters and pushed the campaign leftward in a way that was wasted by the Clinton campaign playing dirty to run up the score in what probably was a foregone conclusion of a primary.
The Democratic Party is, at best, a tool that can be exploited to our ends, and even that I'm growing increasingly doubtful of. The entire system is too beholden to money and complicated ways of getting around fundraising laws.
The fuck is happening here, is /sub/latestagecapitalism being astroturfed by David Brock shills?
I. Fucking. Knew it.
Considering she shared primary debate questions with Clinton, I'm gonna go ahead and posit that she's not the beacon of moral rectitude she makes herself out to be here.
