Side note: you are not the leftist equivalent of the "altright" unless you are explicitly attempting to rehabilitate Soviet communism and/or Stalin.

Not at all saying that you do this, just that you post sparked the thought...

What's the exact day that the media/internet officially overuses "altright" to the point where the insult/description loses all its power?

O/U is set for June 23, 2017.

Just for the record, the guy who actually coined the term altright was the one sieg heiling Trump and [still] calling for ethnic cleansing. [GUESS WHO HE ROOTED FOR IN THE MOST RECENT SUPER BOWL?????] It's not some term of derision that was created by the filthy jew media, it's a euphemism that was invented by the neo-nazis themselves. Therefore, while it might eventually become a meaningless, blanket insult like "fascist" did, I don't think you're really coming at this from the right angle.


Yeah, I didn't come at it from the origin angle in any way, shape, or form.

Besides all that, uhhhhh, thanks, I guess?

I should clarify...I wasn't accusing you yourself of being a paranoid, extreme anti-media wingnut. Really. I was taking the opportunity to mock these people's beliefs, and I guess. I was just saying that this is a term that people used to describe themselves, so I don't know if the media will really use it as a blanket insult, instead of neonazi or neofascist or whatever.


I'm all for mocking those people, so please have at it. I will en joy.

Eventually, imo, the term will reach the oversaturation point and the media will play a role, though probably not nearly as much as internet bloggers.

Just a working theory.

Ethic cleansing chatter in the year of our lord anytime after the 1950's though....WT actual F!!! ](*,)

There's a fringe that never went away. They're just back in the news because this is the first time the extreme right has embraced a mainstream candidate since Reagan. And maybe the novelty of their sudden popularity in internet nerd culture.

But we must tread lightly. Kite will undoubtedly show up to tell us that dahhkies are the REAL ethnic cleansers. And to deny that he stole the "year of our lord" meme from me.

well, some of us raised the alarm and we're dismissed as crackpots or angry uppity blacks who talked too much about race and were therefore the real racists. but keep dismissing us... maybe they'll send you to the camps last.

You have to send them to the camps before they send you! That's just the way it is in this harsh world, that I understand so well from watching game of Thrones.

Sigh.

As was noted in the original post, I specifically said that DTF did NOT do this, that it just sparked a thought.

The term will be applied to many who have not named themselves that, if it hasn't already started.

Again, as noted in the original post.

Sigh.

Just when you thought the Ringer thread couldn't get any less enjoyable, SOTSG goes and does this.

YES, I AM DOUBLE POSTING INTHE RINGER THREAD @ ME RED FONTS!

This article: https://theringer.com/nba-d-league-coac ... .3ppvry3fv was very enjoyable. It used Jerry Stackhouse's decision to pursue a head coaching gig through the D league as a lens for the wider transformation of the league into a true minor league and feeder to the NBA.

Even better, the writer is a college kid that actually SPOKE with several of the people in the article including Stack.

The Ringer goes deep, so deep, on Reese Witherspoon's career

Image

She actually has had an amazing career, and can transform into any role in any film that she is handed as an actor. I had forgotten she was in American Psycho, a true cinematic masterpiece. Not stupid at all.

If you want to move this post over to Movies Top 5 so we can debate all day, I am fine with that.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

Reese Witherspoon had great boobies in an early role. Showed them tatters and all. Forget the name of the movie though
