To be fair, in their minds that’s not what they thought they were rebuking. Language is very important.

2019-01-15 22:22:21 UTC  

@StevePines -WA I mean I agree with you that it suck, but imagine defending "white nationalism" as a federal official in this climate

2019-01-15 22:23:20 UTC  

thats the same logic as "i wont vote because my vote isnt going to matter anyways" and then nobody votes

2019-01-15 22:24:00 UTC  

@Jacob I agree with that, I was looking at it more as them wasting their time by even taking this vote instead of doing something, literally just a virtue signal vote

2019-01-15 22:24:23 UTC  

If you were to take "white supremacy" to a lot of people in the dissident right they would disavow. I don't understand why he said that. King should ask Patrick for advice.

2019-01-15 22:24:28 UTC  

i just skimmed through the resolution, its pretty preachy

2019-01-15 22:25:30 UTC  

>this climate
>climate is more WN than anything since the seventies

Congressmen have two year shelf life, fresh senators have six. At the rate things are going a fresh senator with balls could display solidarity and spin it well by reelection

2019-01-15 22:26:30 UTC  

what's the take on William Barr for AG?

2019-01-15 22:26:40 UTC  

"Whereas while our country has often fallen short of these ideals, patriotic Americans have sought to form a more perfect Union by rejecting White nationalism and White supremacy, embracing inclusive patriotism, and welcoming immigrants from across the globe who have continuously enriched our Nation;"
i agree that white supremacy is bad optics but come on this is just infuriating

2019-01-15 22:27:18 UTC  

i mean i also dont believe in white supremacy but nationalism is patriotism

2019-01-15 22:27:45 UTC  

again and again

2019-01-15 22:27:46 UTC  

the GOP never learns

2019-01-15 22:29:57 UTC  

if I was a congressman I would probably just abstain

2019-01-15 22:30:09 UTC  

say that it's a meaningless virtue signal vote

2019-01-15 22:30:29 UTC  

but I don't think I would have the balls to vote "no" on condemning white nationalism

2019-01-15 22:30:36 UTC  

it would risk taking me out of power

2019-01-15 22:30:46 UTC  

with the benefit of *slightly* moving the Overton Window

2019-01-15 22:31:32 UTC  

If I was a congressman, I think my main focus would be to just lay low, don't say anything too controversial, and try to get away with passing as much good legislation as possible

2019-01-15 22:32:05 UTC  

I'd introduce immigration bills and make up bullshit post hoc rationalizations for why I support it.
"oh I think we need to cut immigration to reduce overpopulation"

2019-01-15 22:32:22 UTC  

let someone who doesn't have a position to lose do the proselytizing

2019-01-15 22:32:36 UTC  

Far leftists are actually pretty smart and don't fall for huwyte taqqiyya

2019-01-15 22:32:42 UTC  

Note how the wording of the resolution reduces politics to a binary choice between "welcoming immigrants from across the globe" and "white supremacy"

2019-01-15 22:32:49 UTC  

ya but most people aren't far leftists so who cares

2019-01-15 22:33:23 UTC  

My average conservative constituent would be like "oh cool he's stopping us from getting overpopulated"

2019-01-15 22:33:50 UTC  

Just remember 2/3 of Congress attend AIPAC

2019-01-15 22:33:58 UTC  

Yeah, yeah I am sure you would have done so much better

2019-01-15 22:34:27 UTC  

well, my point kind of is opposite

2019-01-15 22:34:46 UTC  

my point is that I probably *wouldn't* have done much better than the guys virtue signalling

2019-01-15 22:35:14 UTC  


2019-01-15 22:35:17 UTC  

I wouldn't go up there and be a hero

2019-01-15 22:35:42 UTC  

Our people need heroes

2019-01-15 22:36:29 UTC  

Too many Congress people just want to lay low and stay in office, I'd rather just have one term and actually get something done

2019-01-15 22:36:29 UTC  

No, we don't need people martyring themselves when there's other ways to make themselves useful

2019-01-15 22:36:41 UTC  

This is how we end up with career congressmen

2019-01-15 22:37:13 UTC  

The boomer anti-racism chicanery/taqiyya isn't aimed at leftists but Nationalists who need permission or cover.

2019-01-15 22:37:17 UTC  

@StevePines -WA That's a valid point. They can't take the lay low stuff *too* far, they have to do *something*.

2019-01-15 22:37:22 UTC  

Waiting for useful congressmen to do useful things....
Any day now
