however you feel about American politics in 2020 in the wake of the failed impeachment and upcoming election, please believe one thing:
Charlie Kirk is obviously a slimy little shit.

He is not "little." Definitely a big shit. And it is not appropriate to refer to a person by their penis size. Really, Eric, have you no shame?

It remains to be seen if the impeachment "failed." Yes, the Poisident was not convicted, which was quite a long shot, but it remains to be seen what the effect of the impeachment will be in this year's election.

I will say this: I've been a life-long Democratic voter, but I never before was so concerned about a "Republican." It wasn't a swear word for me. To be sure, Romney has maintained a shred of respect, bless him. But the year ahead is truly dangerous.

There are basic flaws in the American system, and few really understand them. It may take generations to fix, if ever. Everyone is too busy reacting to the latest Bad News.

Pelosi for President. (Though I would not wish the burden on her. If we had a real democracy, we would not elect the President, we would elect personally trusted representatives, and they would hire the executive, like any sane corporation.)

We ought to mention the dislike certain media outlets have for Sanders--it's difficult to claim this is a 'conspiracy theory' by now (mostly right-wing outlets have been snickering about it but not anymore).

He was talking about that horror show Kirk calls a face:

Well, I participated in this, which I regret. We are, here, repeating trolling which essentially lies, with irrelevant (not merely irreverent) satire.

In the Wikipedia-critical field this is what has kept critique from being effective, it mostly transformed into trolling, including trolling of any effective critics.

I am not involved in internet political activism on the level of personalities, though I certainly have plenty of opinions. (So I did not recognize "Charlie Kirk.")

I'm far more interested in political structure, to the vast amusement of certain wikipediots. Charkle Kirk and his organization are best addressed with the truth and solidarity in trusting the truth, and with satire that is actually humorous and that does not descend into hatred and contempt. I can admire his willingness to be outspoken and engage in controversy, while considering his opinions to be delusional or maybe even worse.
