Kayaktivists, Activate!

It's a lovely yacht. But Mercer is odious. No reason to conflate the two.
3
yeah! That yacht was only following orders
4
which, according to The New Yorker, also "has a crew of eighteen"
See, a job creator.

@4 - Not to mention all that hand-carving and hand-knotting and stuff. Sounds like a real hand-job creator!

You can follow it all over the world: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/det…
Also notice the Bahamaian registry...another lucrative tax dodge.

Nice yacht you've got there. Be a shame if something happened to it.

EGG THAT YACHT, SEATTLE
9
But the real question is: does this vessel include a break-away hydrofoil section for emergency escapes, or perhaps a personal battle-sub for offensive deployment?
10
Fuck the eggs. Torches.
11
Maybe the Ride the Ducks caravan thing will crash into it.
12
What is the purpose of the article? Promote violence?

'It looks like the Nut job's boat, now I've checked it out and it is! Oh My God!!!!!'
Eli, please give us hourly updates on this important ongoing and groundbreaking news story.

@12 - was wondering the same. If this is about the evils of money in politics - Hillary's campaign outspent Trump's. If one of her filthy rich donors did the same, we'd get a similar outraged article, right? I was hoping Trump's election would at least silence the "campaigns are bought" mentality but I guess not. Clinton spent 2x what Trump did and lost.

@13 funding a campaign is one thing. Funding a slew of propaganda outlets that, among other things, actively promote racist White Nationalists and spread turn lies and rumors into pseudo facts (like "Obama is not an American citizen") to sew vision and hate is quite another.
15
@13: fuck off with your "both sides do it" bullshit. Mercer is a Bircher loon as corrosive to America as the Kochs.
16
oops...
"And turn lies" "sow division"
17
And there is what #15 said.
18
360-degree security cameras at the waterline?

...but what about below the waterline?
19
So many cowards posting here trying to antagonize others into action and violence.
Good job Eli, you sick SOB.
20
Calling Mercer "Far Right" is like calling The Stranger "Moderate."
21
This is what happens when you gentrify your waterfront
22
Release the concern-trolls!!! @19

Seattle, home of Whiner-Gate

25
Hey Mercer, we know what you did last summer.
26
Ah yes. The violent alt-left is trying to have everyone spring into acts of vandalism and violence by antagonising everyone with this article. Well done, hypocrites!
27
I'm excited to live in Wiemar America

@26:

(Ladies, gentlemen, and other beings, please welcome our newest deplorable alt-right sock puppet to SLOG - commenting stupid shit since 12:09 a.m. yesterday!)

Please point to the specific reference from Eli's post wherein he incites violence of any kind.

Eagerly awaiting your detailed and cogent analysis...
30
It's the intent, otherwise he and the Stranger would be liable. Did the intention of the article really go over your head?
32
So, now I'm a Nazi! Peculiar gift you have for reading minds. No wonder you hate so much even if someone tries to stem violence.
I think your smoking too much LSD.
33
The Stranger is composed solely of personal ads for the writers who write for it. It no longer has in interest in journalism or serving it's community. If they have an interest in something other than promoting their own names, it's creating click bait for their advertisers.
34
i'm not reading this whole post because my god who cares but if any of the deeply concerned above could please blockquote the part where eli tells everyone to go throw rocks or whatever at this boat that would be helpful
35
Kayaktivists, sink that yacht!
A revolution is on its way, and as long as Republikkkans continue to run amok it's about to become bloody as hell until Trumpzilla and its evil empire are held criminally accountable.
@14 Dr. Zaius: Thank you, and I nominate your comment for the win.
36
@32. Alt-left terrorists like COMTE and German Sausage think that violence to silence people is justified as long as they label anyone they disagree with a "Nazi".

@31. Lol. When was the last time that the alt-left did NOT initiate the violence at a protest? It is amusing at how the alt-left loves to pretend that they are "peaceful" and "tolerant". Sorry, munchkin. Not buying it.
37
for clarification, I'm an anti-fascist and I would advocate equally for egging Hillary Clinton's yacht.
