you dont have to agree with his policies but you have to admit hes the coolest president weve had ever
Nah he still a shit president
I disagree. I dont think anyone that behaves as he does is a “cool” person. President or otherwise, if you try to steal my rights, my money, my freedom, or the lives and same of others I dont think you’re cool even if you do tell jokes and play games. I think hes a liar. Hes a thief. He is the worst possible type of leader. I firmly believe he should be put in jail, not praised because he made you laugh.

if you demean women in favor of men, you are not feminist. you are misogynist.
if you demean men in favor of women, you are not feminist. you are misandrist.
if you are in favor of treating men and women equally, you are feminist.
it’s that simple.
Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukrainians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a ‘Great Leap Forward’ that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children.
In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy’s mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state’s mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous.
