It's pretty surprising that so many people are telling Israel where their capital can and cannot be.

On the face of it no, who gives a **** where their capital is. On the other hand as Jerusalem is the holy city for 3 major religions...

Israel has every right to have its capital in Jerusalem and the United States should support that decision in every way - which we were already doing. the embassy is more symbolic than anything, a big fvck you to the ass backwards countries in the middle east who want to wipe the Jewish people out of existence. The United States was extraordinarily derelict in its duties in the early part of the 20th century and Hitler almost succeeded. We need to protect our ally and make sure no one tries it again.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

He may not have any affiliation with the White House anymore, but former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson might've trolled Trump pretty hardduring a Virginia Military Institute commencement speech. Tillerson was speaking to soon-to-be-graduates at the time, and he certainly didn't mince his words. He may not have referenced President Trump or any of his aides explicitly, but he could've been speaking in reference to the Trump administration when he warned against the dangers of perpetuating false truth in a society.

During the speech, Tillerson spoke of the importance of reinforcing the sanctity of truth within American society, CNN reports. "If our leaders seek to conceal the truth," Tillerson proclaimed, "[Or if] we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom."

Tillerson didn't stop there. He continued to remark upon "a growing crisis in ethics and integrity," NBC News reports, adding, "[if] we the People go wobbly on the truth...we go wobbly on America."

He was probably talking about stuff like this:

Are you talking about Trump here? What is Trump doing that is actual Fascism? Is not meeting with NK fascism? Is mentioning that he's being targeted negatively by 90% of the media fascism? Because I'm seeing a lot of words thrown around about Trump (racist, fascist, EMOLUMENT CLAUSE!, Hilter, Literally!, Nuclear Warmonger, etc), but the only thing I'm witnessing is smoke, mirrors, and fear.

Yes, I'm talking about Trump, but not about anything you mentioned.

It's about his insistence on forced patriotism concerning the anthem kneeling. Forced patriotism is the actual definition of fascism.

this article fairly articulates my views on this issue.

https://www.nytimes....peech-test.html

though i think it's a tad hyperbolic to compare trump's stance on this to actual fascism.

It's like the old saying: If it looks like a duck. And quacks like a duck. I think it's a tad hyperbolic to call it a duck.

The likelihood of Trump knowing what fascism is, is close to nil. He just likes hurting the NFL since his USFL days and because they wouldn't let him have an NFL team a few years ago. Also, he's a little racist. This is pandering to his base, but in a undeniably fascist way (as long as you believe in the dictionary as a reliable source.) No one likes being called a fascist, even if they are. Is it Diet Fascism? Perhaps. But drink enough Diet Fascism and you're still gonna end up a fat-ass fascist with holes in your teeth.

I mean all he really did was give a dumbass opinion. I would think actual fascism requires government intervention. The NFL did this, not the government.

Actual fascism cost over 100 million people their lives in the 20th century alone. So Iím not apt for frivolous comparisons.
