Run Like Hell sequence = America 2016


Jackbooted thugs enforcing purity and moral fortitude whilst terrorizing those deemed second class citizens (minorities, gays, women etc). In fact, it could be argued that the whole Fascist Hammer sequence pretold of the Conservative Frankenstein's monster currently leading the GOP in the polls.

Run like hell indeed...

Funny thing, Hillary supporters being the only ones creating violent protests and all. Heck, just last week we had assasination attempt for Trump. But dont let that interrupt your narrative.

Definitely. Nigh impossible to watch parts of this movie today and not think of Trump, especially that fascist rally. This film feels as timely as ever.

Same can be said of that Nine Inch Nails album "Year Zero".

Yes, a very famous one.

Are you living under a rock?

No. However the only "Jackbooted thugs enforcing purity and moral fortitude whilst terrorizing those deemed second class citizens" (ie people who don't hold their worldview) I've seen in the USA have been Hilary supporters.

In an earlier post you appear to compare Trump and his supporters to fascists. If that's the case you obviously have no understanding of what fascism really is.

And before you ask no I'm not American.

EDIT: Very slight punctuation revision for clarity.

Right, because it was at Clinton's rallies that she demanded dissenters be violently accosted and forcibly removed. It was at Clinton's rallies that flagrant racism, xenophobia, homophobia, ablism, misogyny, anti-illectualism, and denigration of any number of people were espoused and made to appear normal. It was Clinton who was supported by white supremacists and the KKK. Right. Tell me who better represents fascism.

reply

So it's OK for people to disrupt political rallies spoiling it for 99%+ of attendees "because free speech"? For the sake of discourse and smooth/safe running of the event they should be thrown out whatever their political leanings and they're protesting about.

Please offer actual racist, xenophobic, homophobic, ablist, misogynistic (other than an old tape of locker room banter) and anti-intellectual quotes rather than just parroting the same old same old.

So what if white supremacists and the KKK endorsed him? It's not as if he endorsed them or they had a massive field of candidates to choose from.

Now I ask again, how on Earth do Trump and his supporters represent fascism?

I can't believe I'm actually having this conversation. Calling Mexicans criminals and rapists, wanting to build a border wall to keep them out, claiming a man couldn't properly do his job because of his ethnicity, wanting to deport Muslims and placing a ban on their entrance into the country, bragging about sexually assaulting women, mocking a disabled reporter, denying climate change, spewing patent falsehoods and misinformation, setting up a cabinet of billionaires who don't give a sh/t about the common American, choosing a vice president who advocates conversion therapy for LGBT citizens... the heinousness doesn't end.

And disrupting rallies is one thing. You don't need to be okay with that. But to condone that your supporters physically attack dissenting individuals?

To put it politely: are you f/cking serious?

reply

Many Mexicans are rapists and criminals, in fact many Mexican woman are raped or sexually abused by the gangs who smuggle them into the USA. Also, these Mexicans are criminals simply by being illegal immigrants.

How on earth is wanting to keep illegal immigrants out of your country racist?

He "(claimed) a man couldn't properly do his job because of his ethnicity" citation and context or it never happened.

"wanting to deport Muslims and placing a ban on their entrance into the country" He never said he wanted to deport ALL Muslims, as for fundamentalist or pro-Sharia Muslims they should not be welcome in any western country.

How exactly do you consensually sexually assault a woman? Anyway, that tape is 12 years old.

He took the piss out of a reporter and hurt their feelings. So what?

Denying climate change? He must be Satan incarnate.

"spewing patent falsehoods and misinformation" Again, citation or it never happened.

"setting up a cabinet of billionaires who don't give a sh/t about the common American" So by being rich they obviously don't give a sh/t about the "common American"? Whatever. What about Clinton admitting she had two agendas, one regarding the electorate and one regarding the corporate state? We can guess which one she would follow if she'd been voted in.

Chose a vice president who advocates conversion therapy for gay citizens. Like OMG, a politician who holds views you disagree with. They must be heinousness evil fascists. Not as if he'll ever get the chance to implement such nonsense. And it's not as if Hilary happily took $40,000,000 of campaign funds from Saudi Arabia, a country who routinely execute homosexuals and were behind the 9/11 attacks.

Who's supporters have spent the last two month rioting, destroying property, disrupting all kinds of events and institutions, denying a democratic election and of course assaulting folks who hold political views that differ from theirs. That's would be Hilary's

And of course what has any of this to do with?

1. fascism
2. a 35 year old movie about a rock star's psychological breakdown

"Many Mexicans are rapists and criminals..."

That's about as far as your post needs to go to prove you're hardly worth reasoning with.

And LOL at "holds views you disagree with" as an excuse for vile, institutionalized homophobia. But of course you would also tell me Hitler merely held views I disagree with.

It will take more than one person or an online message board conversation to knock some sense into someone willing to justify the blatant bigotry and hateful rhetoric that led to the current president's victory. Good luck.

reply

Mike Pence claiming that homosexuality is a choice is institutionalized (how can one person's views be regarded as institutionalized?) homophobia, yet Hilary Clinton taking $40,000,000 from Saudi Arabian backers (a country which routinely executes homosexuals) is OK? Your irrational hypocrisy is astonishing.

Basically you can't provide any evidence to support your claims nor counter any of my replies can you?

Just found out that Trump has killed Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty thus taking a massive amount of political and economical power out of the hands of international corporations (both now and in the future) and potentially not only improved the lot in life of around 15% of the world's population but also changed the next few decades of world history for the better (Why aren't the mainstream media covering this momentous decision?)

However you seem more bothered that he doesn't like illegal immigrants and that women may have to start paying for abortions again.

Here's a particularly nasty video of an evil Nazi Trump voter assaulting multiple peaceful protester's fists with his head having provocatively chosen to ignore them. The last few moments, when it suddenly dawns on you what the crowd are chanting, are beyond irony.

There are hundreds of videos of Clinton supporters acting like this yet you claim Trump's are the thugs and bullies? wearyourlove, you're an idiot.

Oh look, a supposed anti-fascist demonstrator indiscriminately violently attacking a stranger for holding an opinion they disagree with, action which is the very epitome of fascistic behaviour:

Yet somehow it's Trump and his supporters who represent fascism. As I've already said, you genuinely have no idea what fascism even is.
