If these bots could really talk, they would be spewing things like this:

ArtemusBlank  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: How to make fun of nazis

The best I got when it comes to making fun of nazis is this:

I'm not sure we can completely do absolutely nothing about this. In the past, Neo-nazis used to have their own little corner or were completely hidden in the dark. Nowadays it's seems like the Internet has given them a bigger voice and better access to contact one another.

If a rally happened in Charlottesville twenty years ago, who would know about it? People in the local community and from the surroundings. But is a person from California or Alaska or Montana going to come out to this event? It may take those people a while to find out about where a rally of this nature to take place and they may be too late for it. But today, you can learn about such things in less than twenty minutes if you know where to go and you can definitely plan in advance when you hear about these things for the first time on Facebook or Twitter.

Also if nobody counter-protested at these rallies, wouldn't more nazis come out? If the protests were safe and there was no consequence wouldn't that enable more people to join up. I think the possibility of violence at some of these things deters some people from coming out. There are probably white nationalists out there that would want to come out and rally but can't because they're scared they would be outed to their job about their beliefs or injured or killed.

How can this be fixed though? Well that's a tough question to solve. I think this is more than just wanting a reaction anymore. It's a thing that's growing. The Westboro baptist church, remember them? Why aren't they a problem in today's America? Well they never really grew. They just mostly stuck to being Fred Phelps's family members even when they got internet attention. Everyone in America knows about them but no one is looking to join them. The Alt-Right/White Nationalists want to grow though, they want more and more members. They want the rich businessmen who want the old ways, the college kid who feels like he's falling behind, the poor factory worker who has nowhere to go, the gunmen who feel like the government is going to take away their guns at anymore, the suburban fratboy, the mother who is afraid her children will pick up bad things from minorities and so much more.

Looks like the leaks got him before he could get one.

What a bad hunter.

Wow this guy only lasted ten days in a Trump White House. He must have been that bad even for this administration.

So how many years before these two channels die out? Unless they decide to change things soon in a big way, this sounds like a dinosaur waiting for that asteroid to hit it and die.

Art Bell was entertaining and interesting. When you listened to Art, it seemed like you got a good source of entertainment like a decent tv show and it was nothing more than that. But once Art left, Coasy to Coast really changed to a more conspiracy based show and this helped open up and expose people like Alex Jones to a wider audience. Art had built the audience up but once he left that audience didn't disappear over night. So with that exposure, people like Alex Jones could grab a part of that audience and hang on for a while before greater times for conspiracy and that is happening right now with Trump in office as conspiracy theories seem to be the normal things these days. Conspiracy used to be its own little niche but now it's really out in the open thanks to the Internet and programs like Coast to Coast.

Good luck with the show. How many people are you going to perform it for?

Even though I'm 29, marriage still seems like a bit of a far away concept for me. I have a girlfriend right now and I have been with her for over half a year but marriage is still ways away for the moment. I guess it's just the new age thinking of how it's now better to get married later than sooner.

I went to an Amazon Bookstore yesterday in Paramus, NJ. This bookstore had recently opened up a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to see what it was like. There was a good number of people there but overall it seemed like an airport bookstore with slightly less books and a good bunch of amazon stuff. It was okay overall but there was not enough variety in titles to really catch my interest for too long. It seems like more of a casual place to go to sometimes if I'm in the Garden State Plaza with nothing better to do.

Personally as a young man in his 20s, I would never be able to play video games all day. It would get so boring. Even when I had a job I extremely hated as a janitor in my early 20s never did it occur to me to just play video games all day. I used to play video games a good deal when I was in my teens but nowadays I just can't get into them the way I used to. If I play any games, they are usually short games like Way of the Samurai for the PS2. I slice people up with a sword, compete it's quick story and just run around looking for people to kill for two hours. Something longer than that, I will just forget about it after a while.

There's just something about doing nothing but playing video games that's not attractive to me. Sure I could I have a good time and get better but it wouldn't make me feel better.

Isn't r/incels worse or are these two just about the same? I keep hearing incels is an awful place.

I can see why a poem like that can be frustrating as it seems like something anyone could have made. It definitely is head scratching.

Out of boredom, I did a parody piece of that poem today.

    It was hot

    She dreamed of ice

    She got up and took

    the last popsicle

    It was lemon flavored

    I got hot

    I dreamed of ice as well

    I got up

    I wanted a popsicle

    I saw that she was eating

    the last popsicle

    They were in her luscious lips

    All she could say was, "I'm

    sorry I ate the last

    popsicle, it was delicious."

    All I could say to that

    was, "I'm sorry I'm not

    William Carlos Williams,

    by the way we have no

    more plums."
