Nov 25 Billy Chav commented on Donald Trump's America: Here There Is No Why.
"The impulse to meet Republicans in the middle is what makes progressives better people on a fundamental level. It’s also a double-edged sword that they consistently use against us. The thing is that Republicans do not care about consensus. They do not care about governance. Based on their non-reaction to the Russians hacking the election they don’t even care about the sovereignty of the United States. Winning takes precedence over everything else. "

This is just silly. The only meeting in the middle progressives will do is being happy to support the neo-con/Wall Street candidate (the bizarre Wall Street/Occupy Wall Street coalition Zizek noted). Black Lives Matter, Gay marriage, transexual bathroom use, abortion rights – the whole cavalcade of social justice/identity politics issues – utterly dominate progressive concerns. And they have made it clear again and again that they won't budge on any of them.

And come on, "better people on a fundamental level"? You really can't get outside yourselves enough to see that people voted for Trump (and Brexit) because they believe globalists are an outsized threat to them, their families, their way of life? It's this naive and childish need to be the Good Ones that undergirds the tantrums and riots that progressives have indulged in all year. Did you all really care about TPP? Because it's dead, and it's dead because Trump won. For some reason though, this fact hasn't been able to penetrate the haze of prog narcissism.

Where did these socialist heroes come up with enough ready money and resources to distribute thousands of pre-printed signs? Almost as if they're being funded or something. Well, not worth looking into I guess, better just to kind of report on their itinerary, you know, the real news.

I had to have "the talk" with my son about revolting, predatory men.
Oct 13 Billy Chav commented on Amid Sweeps Backlash, Council Members Release Competing Plans for Addressing Homeless Encampments.
No "camping" – use of that word in this context is a joke – should be permitted at all. If the city directs police or DA not to enforce civic statutes for a while during an emergency, maybe that's acceptable. But to make it a right is just preposterous.

Bigger issue is the total failure of Seattle's homeless "non-profits" (which are in fact more profitable for their top staff than many "for-profits" are for their owners). We spend a ton on homelessness compared with other cities and our problem is worse. This is what the council keeps failing to address.

@61, don't know why you barfed out those crime victimization stats, they're not relevant to question of crime perpetration.

Anyway, poverty is irrelevant. Compare poorest part of US (Appalachia, nearly all white) with say Chicago. You could take any region in Appalachia and any city with a sizeable poor black population and find the same thing: exceedingly low/non-existent homicide rates for former, exceedingly high ones for latter. You need a better excuse.

Ansel, were you a tattle-tale in school, or did you just naturally grow into it? "Oooh, we're going to tell the Mayor what you said! You're going to get in biiiiiig trouble now!!"

This is a great Tumblr you guys have. You should get some reporters though and maybe start a news magazine or something.

Anyway, did you know that while blacks commit more than 50% of all murders annually, twice as many whites as blacks have been killed by cops so far this year? This is information I found on a news site, not on your Tumblr: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/…
Jul 7 Billy Chav commented on Dallas: 11 Police Officers Shot, Four Dead, Three In Critical Condition.
Why is "snipers" in quotation marks? Weird. What else would you call them? I assume there's some standard weirdo-political thing behind it but I'm fucked if I know what.

So now the Stranger is just pure fanboy boosterism.
