    And honestly DJ, trying to re-read your post, I have no idea what you're after here. What "position" am I too defend? A random-ass global warming position? And why would I do that, when that isn't anywhere close to what the conversation was about?

    Think you need to re-read what was being discussed and what my comment was geared towards.

    Was there an argument in here about degrees of being a Nazi? All Nazis aren't bad or something like that? Are there sections of the Nazis who aren't in it for the racism and uber-nationalism? People who say, "I'm a Nazi, but only for their views on healthcare and strong system of white intramural leagues."?

    Those are mostly legit questions.

    If you march on the streets of America carrying a nazi flag you are a terrorist. There is no place for that.

    What do you think @The Oi, goose-stepping with a swastika chanting "blood and soil" and "down with the Jews."

    Nazis or just some kids out for a stroll?

    Please, let's argue the nuts and bolts. What specific policy actions has the EPA taken under the Trump administration that will result in a net positive for the people they serve?

    You first.

    If you're claiming it's going to destroy the air and water, thus taking it above the fray of normal politics, explain.

    No.

    We've tried this before. It didn't work well. Caused Oliver Wendell Holmes to write the worst decision of his career that he spent the next decade trying to pretend he didn't write.

    Carrying a flag does not make you a terrorist.

    And this is a side rant, but Wendell Holmes often gets cited as the greatest Supreme Court Justice ever. He wrote the majority decision of Schenk, a case that upheld the sedition act passed under Wilson that saw a man thrown in jail for distributing anti-capitalist, anti-military draft fliers.

    He then had one of the worst lines ever in his majority decision in Buck v. Bell, a case over the constitutionality of a state law that allowed state agents to forcibly sterilize the mentally challenged, against their will, preventing them from having children. Writing his opinion to uphold the law, Holmes stated "three generations of imbeciles are enough."

    So there's my anti- Oliver Wendell Holmes rant.

    Sure, I'll start with the NY Times article I linked in my original post:
    From another NY Times article:
    That Washington Post article referenced has a whole lot more information:
    Even more from the Washington Post:

    This was Trumps opportunity. This was his moment. And he freaking blew it.

    He could have become President today. He could have condemned this act, white supremacy and the far right movement. But he didn't. He simply refuses to be President for the entire country.

    This is going to be a defining moment for him. I was actually pulling for him leading up to his presser. I thought this would be his moment where he turned babyface. First KJU makes him look like an unhinged lunatic, and now this. It's not been a good vacation.

    What a fucking incompetent leader! I don't know how you brainless idiots on the right can continue to support this fucker. Not once in that entire clip did he mention transgender rights, women's issues, or climate change.
