    No, he’s always been a self-righteous, arrogant, pompous shitbag first and foremost.

    its impressive how basically everyone who was big in the anti-religion space became huge reactionaries in general

    before even getting into that in retrospect half of it was cover for just being Islamophobic (Sam Harris being the most notable one)

    yeah hes been islamophobic regularly, calls himself a feminist while sharing misogynist bits, and does the "just asking questions" about trans issues in a terf fashion that is common in england

    he's a strange person in general so a lot of it gets excused. definitely not as transparently awful as the Harris/Maher/Ali gang

    with where ole Hitch was at the time he died i'd probably include him there too but can't be certain

    This is what Buttigieg was referring to when he said the phrase “racist highways” and got mocked. But he is right, and this is one example.

    thanks for sharing!

    same, he was pretty much my only news source back in the mid 2000s

    but somewhere around that ben affleck interview where he said all muslims are bad is where I started to really notice a tonal shift and stopped watching

    and then he gave a platform to Milo and that gang

    Dawkins is awful.

    The only one of the big new atheists guys that I can think of that isn’t just totally embarrassing is Daniel Dennett. If he embarrassed himself like the others, I’ve missed it.

    This is obviously the tweet of someone who doesn't understand the difficulties of running in gerrymandered districts. I ran in a non competitive state house seat 2x to carry the torch for Democrats. I did so to reach and turn out voters that statewide and national campaigns wouldn't. Campaigns like that helped flip GA in 2020. We need to contest every seat. Having said that, folks need to understand what they are asking of candidates. It's physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially draining on yourself and your family. Raising funds is incredibly difficult unless you are challenging an infamous incumbent - eg: Marcus Flowers challenging MTG in GA CD14. Volunteers are there, but not nearly like what you'll find in competitive races. You'll get little support from liberal and left leaning organizations during the race. Endorsements take more work and are harder to get because influencers like to endorse people they feel like will win. It's a thankless grind with little reward at the end for the majority of candidates. If you are tweeting stuff like this, you better make sure you've put in the work to run or supported those that have.

    His explanation is that he's not gay, he just likes fucking men.


    And, no, I'm not joking.


    I could foresee this becoming more common with gay conservatives. It's a way to separate themselves from the LGBT community while still being open about their lifestyle.

    Starts at 2 minutes. I honestly feel bad for the kid. He likes men but hates gay people? I can't help but think family pressure has him all fucked up.


    Walker responded: ““Don’t call—Don’t put that ghetto g-word on me. I just like masculine men. I’m not a—I don’t wanna be lumped in with the rainbow people,” he said. “Gay conserv—I’m not a gay conservative. I’m a conservative who likes men.”
