Venezuela on the verge of collapse

Maybe in a work of fiction. Which is interesting as conincidently Dr Lawrence Britt who wrote the list was actually not a doctor at all. Or an academic or historian. He was a businessman who wrote a bit of fiction… from a few pieces a quick google have produced. :joy:

Comey was ordered by his boss to decide on the outcome, when it was her job.


#663

Trump ticks 14 boxes and is nearly there on two.


#664

You said he had links to fascism earlier. Even better for ascertaining what is a fascist is, so.

Who’d know the characteristics of fascism better than a fascist?

Get it straight from the horses mouth, like.


#665

Not boxes that are universally used to define and measure fascism, rather than the ravings of some deranged lunatic.


#666

That’s certainly an accurate description of yourself.

So I never take them very seriously.


#667

So it was Comey’s job.

If you want to talk about an Attorney General not doing his job or not being able to do his job, just look to the present one.

The one appointed by a president completely unable to do his job.

The one who believes the FBI director should pledge personal loyalty to him.

That’s another defining characteristic of a fascist leader, by the way.


#668

Seems even Trump himself agrees with me. :laughing:


#669

Mate you’re supposed to engage on each of the points in there so Sidney can spin long yarns about Trump on each one. You’re not helping him pivot here.


#670

Did you check your source for that…:joy:…the Rense in question whos website you pulled that list from…from wikipedia… “Rense’s radio program and website promote views such as 9/11 conspiracy theories,[3] UFO reporting, paranormal phenomena, creation of diseases, chemtrails, evidence of advanced ancient technology, emergent energy technologies, and alternative medicine.”… The Anti-Defamation League and The Southern Poverty Law Center have stated that Rense disseminates anti-semitic and pro-Nazi speech while promoting others with similar ideologies."

@sidney caught posting sources from anti-semitic pro-nazi websites. This is an all time Oooooofffffffttttttt for @alf_stewart

Sidney only reads material that reinforces his world view - not for objectivity, but to entrench his stance further - He then has the temerity to attack others for being so called bigots and fascists when he is equally as bad - Him and his mullally brigade are all the same - They demand a ‘liberal’ society but want it all on their terms.

A serious offfty by @alf_stewart.


#672

An anti-semite fascist is exactly the type of person you’d want to define fascism.

If Trump is a fascist by the definition of fascists, he is one.

Go through the points and tell me which one you disagree with, by the way.


#673

You’ve just clamped yourself beautifully there.


#674

Sure…


#675

Still looking for people to enagage with you on your link from a website designed back in the Windows 95 days. :joy:

Meanwhile in the real world. Let’s see what is happening in Venezuala;

Until recently, almost all of Venezuela’s mostly urban and educated population had access to clean drinking water, sanitation facilities and electricity. It was an affluent country, with the largest proven fossil-fuel reserves in the world.

But its economy is shrinking at an alarming rate, while at the same time inflation is spiralling out of control. Poverty and violent unrest have ensued

That one really flew over your head, mate.


#677

No, mate … i’m just not engaging with your shite.


#678

You only read material which reinforces your world view.

And even then you find it difficult.


#679

Good one, mate.

Thanks.
