Shocker! Richard Spencer is a racist asshole


Leaked audio purportedly captures Richard Spencer's racist, violent threats after Charlottesville

“We are going to destroy this f**king town,” he is heard saying in the audio. "I rule the f**king world."

Former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos published a leaked audio recording that he claims shows white nationalist leader Richard Spencer shouting racist slurs and threats after the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

“My ancestors f**king enslaved those little pieces of f**king sh*t,” the man identified as Spencer shouts in the audio recording. “They don’t do this to f**king me. We’re going to f**king ritualistically humiliate them.”

“Little f**king kikes,” the audio continues. “They get ruled by people like me. Little f**king octaroons.”

The audio includes a threat to return to Charlottesville repeatedly.

“We are coming back here like a f**king hundred times,” the voice in the recording says. “I am so mad. I am so f**king mad at these people. I am coming back here every f**king weekend if I have to. Like this is never over. I win. They f**king lose. That’s how the world f**king works. I rule the f**king world. Those pieces of sh*t get ruled by people like me.”

“We are going to destroy this f**king town,” he added.

Seriously what are Republicans offering? Is it just fear tactics and divisiveness?

What are they offering the American people? To the people voting for them?
For all the dissent amongst Democrats, I appreciate that they are bringing IDEAS! Whether its Medicaid 4 all, free college tuition, improving Obamacare, universal income, Universal Pre- K, Green new deal. I can look at all these ideas and evaluate if they add value to my life, my community, our country and our planet.

I was just watching the Kentucky Gov's political ad. Nothing about what he would do for the people. It was be afraid of the scary democrats. They don't share our values. I'm sure values is not so coded racist/bigoted.

Then I listened to a reporter that said he asked the Gov why he spent so much time talking about Trump and nationalizing a local race while his opponent was focused on education, healthcare etc. The reporter said the Gov responded by saying Trump wins. He won by 30 points. So this is what he chose to offer his constituents. Trump?
At the rally last night, he was firing up the crowd by saying lets show the country we support Pres Trump.

So at what point do these PUBLIC SERVANTS actually SERVE THE PUBLIC? Is the plan really fear tactics, fear the scary democrats and others and worship president trump?

So confused. Well not really. But just continued to be amazed by how many people accept this...

What does Trump have to do with the Terminator?

Wow, so many themes in this movie. Immigration, people in cages, losing jobs to AI, guns, women are the future. I really liked it. I'm surprised it did not do better at the box office. I think they incorporated a lot of those themes without being preachy. Gotta wonder if the Mexican heroine theme was a turnoff for some?

Anyhoo, I thought Arnold Shwarzenagger and Linda Hamilton were superb.
Here's what the director had to say
Many involved say the intention was not to make an overtly political “Terminator” sequel. Yet Cameron, who shepherded the storyline and recruited a writer’s room to chart out a potential three-film arc, delights in the pointed commentary.

“When you look at how Trump thinks of Mexico … it’s like, well, we’re going to tell a story about the most important person in the world,” he said. “She’s so important that they bend time to send an agent back to try to kill her to change the future. Let’s make her a Mexican national.

“Now you’ve got gender, but you’re also bringing race, culture and politics into it with that one decision. That’s absolutely by design, and that’s something that we talked about and we all leaned into,” he said. Adding not one but two female protectors in the forms of Sarah and Grace deepened that choice.
