Rest of the DNC Open Thread

Philadelphia

While there was plenty of action yesterday, it wasn’t on par with 1968.  Sure, there are three more days to go, but I get the feeling that there won’t be any ’68-style confrontations.

My assessment of yesterday is that we got a lot of blatantly contradictory mish mash, the most obvious of which is that we were told that the country is already great because Baraq Obama made it that way, and the country is a dystopian hellhole of social injustice, income and wealth inequality and Republicans winning elections on occasion.

Michelle Obama used the occasion of her speech last night to note that “big men with guns” take their daughters to school.  These people all want us to hate cops, but they want their protection.  Remember, Baraq and Michelle Obama deliberately bought in a Chicago neighborhood that had two layers of police protection, CPD and UCPD.  They want wafer thin dainty transgenders armed with restraining orders to be your cops, but they want big men with guns to protect them.  They want affirmative action for the military and law enforcement, but when he wanted to pull off the keynote accomplishment of his first term, he turned to the whitest part of the military, the Navy SEALs.

Rush thinks the flow of the speakers last night pushing Bernie’s start time really late and behind schedule was both deliberate and an implicit diss.

The people who run the present-day Democratic party have a similar outlook to the 1968 demonstrators. It’s often been said that the 60’s radicals became the establishment.

In the 1972 Democratic convention, due to their stupidity and fecklessness, George McGovern’s acceptance speech didn’t start until around 2 am.

Going into the convention, McGovern was about 10-12 points behind Nixon. Afterward, he was 19 behind and lost by over 20, carrying only Massachusetts.

McGovern boasted that the people outside demonstrating in 1968 were now on the inside. Yeah, right.

Except for the brain, which, by the end of Thursday, will be too irreparably rotted to be scientifically useful.

Kate and Wills should adopt a niglet. Or maybe make a (real) cuck video where she’s ‘seeded’ — the resulting offspring will help bring ‘diversity’ to the Royal Family (note the caps, like God), and as we all know that can’t be a bad thing — the profits from the video could be donated — it’s a win win win etc…

It’s why Junior is my favorite of the Trump kids. I couldn’t see any of the others being that snide. However, I don’t see him running for NYC Mayor, I think he’d be happy being something like chief of staff for his father.

This was actually a composite tweet — a reply to a tweet by Bernie Sanders

He was replying to this tweet from Bernie Sanders

At first I objected to Sanders in part because I thought he looked and sounded old — ‘low energy’ as Trump might say — but now I think he’s also just plain fucking stupid.

A few years back at a Dod base, my buddy encountered a negress employee who could. not. understand the concept of time zones. There was an Eastcoast/Westcoast teleconference scheduled, and Queefsha saw the EST and PST times listed, and axed aloud, “Why don’t everybody just meet at the same time?” I still don’t know why he tried to explain it to her. I would’ve encouraged her to share her outside-the-shortbox idea with a General.

I’ve 2x tried to embed a tweet in this comment thread and it has not worked — on twitter I selection the option ‘Embed Tweet’, copy the text, and then paste the text here — which clearly, at least for the ones I tried, does not work. Any tips on that appreciated.

Just copy and paste the direct URL of the tweet.

Trump just distracted the media from the NAACP Convention in Philly

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/289443-clinton-camp-trumps-russia-remarks-a-bridge-too-far

Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon told MSNBC that Trump “is now openly inviting Russia to engage in cyberattacks against the United States.”

It’s a bigger spread than that. I’ve always thought that a sig % of Trump voters aren’t admitting to it in public. My biggest fan had this story as evidence:
