Dan Crenshaw is an absolute pandering fucking loser. Should be ashamed.

These idiots are tearing down statues of lincoln and slave abolitionists too.

It's not about removing "confederate" statues it's about removing WHITE statues. The great erasure of white history marches onward.

Trump Retweets COVID-19 Video Yanked By Social Media For Pushing Fake Cure
https://www.yahoo.com/sports/report-tru ... 52814.html
President Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., on Monday retweeted a viral video that was yanked by Facebook for pushing “false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19.”

YouTube and Twitter also pulled the video.

The clip, which was originally posted by the right-wing news site Breitbart, featured four people who identified themselves as doctors speaking in front of the Supreme Court building. One was Stella Immanuel, who claims to be a physician in Houston, and said hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug often touted by Trump, was a cure for COVID-19.

A number of scientific studies have determined that the drug was not only ineffective against the novel coronavirus but that it could cause fatal heart arrhythmia. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at this time, there is no drug or therapy presently approved by the Food and Drug Administration to prevent or treat COVID-19.

Immanuel also said that people do not need to wear face masks and attacked “fake doctors” who “sound like a computer.” To avoid contracting coronavirus, the CDC advises wearing a face mask, limiting face-to-face contact with others and wearing gloves when cleaning and disinfecting or providing care for the sick.

Immanuel has an unusual background for a self-proclaimed COVID-19 expert. Information about her medical background is limited; however, she does serve as the head of Fire Power Ministries, which appears to be located in a Houston strip mall and promotes a baptism of fire program that offers “miracles, healings and deliverance.”

On Monday night, Immanuel threatened Facebook with God’s wrath.

“If my page is not back up face book will be down in Jesus name,” she tweeted.
I'm so fucking high.

I feel pity for the USA with this psychopath in charge. His twitter is full of lies and divisive speech. Where’s shuck to defend him? If he wins the election again I will lose faith in humanity.

lol is this real?

You realize the lincoln statue people want to take down looks like this right:
Image

It isn't BECAUSE its Lincoln its very clearly the depiction that people have issue with....had you looked into this at all?

We can celebrate historical figures without reinforcing ideas of racial superiority my dude. If this was a regal looking black man standing over a kneeling, half naked, white guy in chains giving him blessing to shine his shoe or whatever (wtf is that guy doing down there? is Lincoln standing on the chain?) I'm pretty sure you would understand people having an issue with it. Again, erasing a problematic depiction is not erasing Lincoln OR history.

Why do you think there is an attack on 'white history' tho? More than the statues or thats it? Are you worried about the decapitated Frederick Douglass statue or does it only matter when its a staute of a white guy?

Seem's absolutely insane to be a product of the American educational system and also somehow think 'white history' is under attack...that's basically all we teach bro lol...you live in a bubble? Not like white people would ever white wash history anything like that tho right??? Not like ALL OF EUROPE would superimpose whiteness on every biblical figure for hundreds of years or anything right??

You heard of al-Khwarizmi? Nah? Bet you know who Pythagoras was tho....but somehow the history we learn isn't white enough? :shock: I get it, you're scared/feel threatened so you aren't thinking straight...hope you can get past this.

I'm feeling very conflicted about this. I've tried my best to "go high," but my sympathy is really being tested when these same people are so adamant about not wearing masks. Some going as far as claiming COVID is a hoax.
I'm not going to shit on Bill or Herman Cain. I'm better than that. But let's just say my sympathy is a bit more limited in this case.

1. Lol at "problematic". More like realistic :lol: And if you think that's the only statue they want to tear down that has nothing to do with the confederacy, you're either deceiving yourself, willfully ignorant or stuck in your little bubble. On a side note. Well documented Lincoln thought the differences between the races irreconcilable and wanted to send all the blacks he freed back to Africa. So by that logic all statues of him are "problematic" and must come down. Problematic is just another latest buzzword mindless NPC drones like you have gobbled up from your leftist media overlords. Just another word for "it's white and we must remove it." It's as hilarious as Black Lives Matter retards tearing down Churchill statues in England :lol: Not that i'm a fan of that drunken war criminal but it's still our history.

2. You've touched on it! I don't care as much about statues of Frederick Douglas. He does not represent my people, my culture or my country. Like it or not this country was forged by white European men. Every county in history was forged, fought for, gained, earned etc with the blood sweat and tears of a nation of people fighting other nations for control. I won't apologize for our ancestors being better at it than everyone else. Sorry that our pastime of brutally conquering and occupying other peoples lands interrupted the "native" american's pastime of brutally occupying, killing and taking the lands of their neighboring tribes :lol: :roll:

3. You're out of your mind if you think that in this day and age white history is not under attack in all of the educational system, all the media, and all the universities. I was in college over 10 years ago and it was horrid. Everything boiled down to white bad everything else good hurr durr. I can't even imagine how bad it is now 12-15 years later.

4. I do feel threatened as would you if you weren't such a self hating delusional leftist. But I assure you I've never been more clear headed in my life. The fact the idea that one would be more familiar with famous historical figures/scientists/philosophers of their own race, culture etc is "problematic" to you... well that really just says it all. You have fun being delusional about what's going on in the world and hating yourself up in Canada if you live there like Tflock. I will be somewhat south of you being jealous of your much more mild summers. :P

I’m glad my comment inspired you to respond KOP :lol:

I’ll take my cooler winters here in Vancouver with lots of rain rather than civil unrest, no health care, guns everywhere and covid ravaging the country :nerd:

Spoiler:
Forgot to mention the lunatic president that wants to cancel the election or challenge it in court just to delay his inevitable demise and imprisonment. How can his supporters be so dumb that they don’t see this?

:roll: Never said anything about cancelling it. He raised a valid concern about widespread mail in voter fraud. If you don't think the the powers that be aren't going to pull out all the stops this time around you're delusional. If we can stand in lines with masks on to go to the store, we can do the same to vote.

Why are you making me defend Trump? :| I need Donny to hurry up with that second stimulus check before he's voted out of office. I'll put that 1200 to better use than anything he did during his 4 years of wasted time.

You're a sissy man for being scared of guns. I recommend less soy

Spoiler:
I really do like forests, mountains, rain etc. Vancouver sounds nice.

Because social distancing might be difficult and/or impractical at many polling places especially if there’s record turnout?

My understanding is that mail-in voting is just expanded absentee voting and vetted the same way.
