TRIGGER WARNING: They don't work

Quick question: Did you ever play a WW2 game (video or board) as a member the Axis powers and then thought to yourself "gee maybe the Axis powers weren't so bad after all"?  Then congratulations you're a typical, sane person.  But according to Extra Credits, you might potentially become a member of the far right:

...and let's not forget the horrible stuff the Allied Governments have done.

No Bernie, commentary on your wealth is NOT anti-Semitic

Article from Politico: Seriously, can anyone who isn't Bernie Sanders (or for that matter Srta Occasional-Cortex for parroting the accusation) find anything remotely anti-Semitic about this article?

They knowingly continue to call their podcast after the political movement that inspired the Nazis to commit the Holocaust (and supplied methodology for a large portion of it), and you actually have to question if they think a bad thing is actually good?

I know, this just happened to be one of their most dumbest segments

Jordan Peele makes a questionable remark.

TYT goes out of their way to defend said remark with the most hilariously insane double standard:

Let me get this straight TYT, you actually think it's a good thing when Jordan Peele is being racist??!?!?

Dan Reed has made a new documentary called "Leaving Neverland" with the help of 2 of Michael Jackson's alleged "victims" chock full of inconsistencies and inaccuracies.
Razorfist the Rageaholic did some actual research pointing why the child sex abuse accusations levied against Michael Jackson were nothing else but a hot steaming pile of garbage:

The other 2 nominees:
-Wade Robson testified under oath during the 2005 trial that Michael Jackson did not molest him.  So was he lying then (perjury) or is he lying now (defamation)?
-James Safechuck did not refuse to testify during the 2005 trial.  He simply was not a factor during the 2005 trial.

This to me looks like the last thrashing death throes of #MeToo witch hunt.

I generally like these videos, but for this series on the Irish potatoe famine I can't seem to count how many times the narrator blames the free market while pointing out policies that go against the free market.

Especially considering that here's the case another politician with cynical and superficial support of free markets.

Props to PSA Stitch for making this supercut:

I didn't think I could neatly fit this in either "Fav" or "Fail" (because PSA deserves props while the Black Israelites deserve mockery).  By extension we can mock leftists for their objectively absurd standards of what constitutes bigotry.

Seriously, just look up this hashtag on Twitter and play this video:

A video from PSA Stitch:

Putting aside objections to the existence of government ...

-Punishing a business for simply complying with hostile boycotts is NOT good policy as it puts pressure on said business to shut down operations in either our own or foreign countries.  Doing so means either country loses tax revenue.  As far as this video is concerned, if a business shuts down in an Arab League country it will make the USA even less popular in said Arab country.  To be sure, certain actions, absolutely should not be permitted for the sake of compliance with foreign regulations such as providing personally identifying information without explicit written consent or sound justification otherwise.  Tax deductions for fines levied by foreign governments would also be a good idea.
Then again legislators aren't reliable when it comes to writing sound policy, nor revising it when it's obviously broken.

-The explanation provided for the GOP's support of Israel is based solely on one side of the equation.  Yes it is true that most evangelions evangelicals believe that Israel is linked to end times (per the book of Revelations in the New Testament).  Yes it is true that evangelions evangelicals vote heavily in favor the GOP.

BBBuuuuuut ...
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Evangelions Evangelicals make up only less than 1% of the population and only slightly more than a third of GOP voter base (2016 election numbers)

Factoring in the numbers cited by Stitch, that means only around a quarter of the GOP voter base their support on End Times prophecy.  Nothing to sneeze at sure, but he also points out that the Democrats also support Israel to an extent.  All of these reasons make me doubt that End Times prophecy was enough for states to enact laws prohibiting the boycotting of Israel.

It could simply be the case that most people support Israel either for business opportunities or that they simply do not want to see the same kind of mass exodus that led to the creation of Israel in the first place or both.  Though I admit to speculation, if it really is the latter case it would make the whole "End Times" prophecy justification moot.

Nonetheless both State and Federal laws are bad policy while the former is undeniably unjust.

Sargon of Akkad of course is for closed borders.


-Publicly funded infrastructure is not legitimate due to the mere ethical problems with taxation.
-Private property can be enforced WITHOUT the government.  That's why it's called a right to keep and bear arms.  To say otherwise is a false dichotomy.
-Close down the borders and it is GUARANTEED that "upper class" will see the "working class" as entitled and indolent.  After all, that "working class" is willing to keep otherwise industrious and eager individuals out of the labor market just to boost their own wages.
-More problems with this video, but I could go on.

Call yourself a "liberal" all you want Sargon, positions like these betray the little slivers of Marxism in you.  After all, Karl Marx himself did advocate for sealed off borders.
