Nothing quite beats getting caught in the crosss-fire.
So much this. Trolls and idiots to the right, trolls and idiots to the left. We can see mirroring of tactics on either side. Even down to the memes. I was thinking somebody (who shall not be namesd) would be right at home at the one place posted (yes, I peeked, curious). Then realized - oh, he's actually the other side (doing exactly that) :X3:

What the heck, soon they'll be banning jokes and memes.

First they came for the conservatives and I said nothing....
Then they came for the...


We all know how that ends.

Those cheering now will be weeping later when they are the ones on the receiving end, that is what I never understood about progressives, such hypocrites.

I can understand how that will upset you. I mean white people today are fully morally culpable for stuff that other white people did 400 years ago.
:laugh:

Just endless whining and woe is me victimhood. The refrain never ends.

But yeah, beg daddy government to save us from the free market, eh konfab?

Some of the Trump supporters are idiots but not mindless idiots, while some are trolls and some are simply contrarians. It doesn't do anyone good if they retreat into their own bubble, that will only lead to a more entrenched, "us against the world" religious like behaviour.
It probably isn't good, but it isn't a change at all. The_Donald banned everyone that didn't toe the lie with pretty extreme prejudice. It was their own little idiot bubble anyway.

Reddit is one the most visited sites on the internet - hence a slogan used by internet users that it is 'the frontpage of the time internet'. They've been outsmarted because Reddit admins think by shutting down the page that they are somehow preventing Trump fans from congregating online. But in reality that's not what has happened.
Is this some kind of strange troll bait, cos surely you don't actually believe this silliness?

Why do you think Reddit cares about Trump fans congregating online? They just don't want their website turned into a fetid sewer by them.

Anyway, back to Colbert.
Not too funny, infantile - almost slapstick.
Oliver at least has a bit more nuance in his approach
I don't know how/why anyone watches these shows routinely. It seems impossible to make a show that's good if it has to air basically every night of the week.

Only stupider thing is cable news with its 24hr 'there must be some controversial issue we can ask our panel of airhead pundits about' business model.

Like any other religion a little critical thought reduces his "pithy remarks" to the obvious bullshit they are.

There is something wonderful about someone crying about criticism and then deciding to censor that criticism in a way that merely innoculates themselves from hearing it.

There is a saying, "none so blind as those who will not see"

On the other hand I was celebrating the idiots of this world moving from reddit to thedullard so I guess I dont mind self censorship.

Good luck!

Free market = laws that that the government to pick and choose winners based on their skin colour.

Got ya famamadingdong.

It would be the free market if the government said: the state shall not discriminate against anyone based on their skin colour. And then some leftist decided that white people are to unclean to purchase coffee at their fair trade coffee shop, so banned white people from entering their shop. That is full free market capitalism, and is exactly how this issue should play out.

You can, but I am not sure what you intend to gain from saying so.

If you choose to laugh at me, then laugh at me. I don't give a ****.

You choose to advertise that you are laughing at me: seeking approval like this reeks of insecurity.

There is a comedic device: using a non sequitur to redirect the audience's attention in a humerous manner.

Your post, unfortunately, has all of the signs of a non sequitur, but none of the humour that could have been included.

L.O.L.
