    Daily Stormer? Ay yi yi!

    I think this is the actual smoking gun:

    Russian government posts April Fools' Day prank offering "election interference" - CBS News

    A source? It's a joke; we're not writing academic papers here.

    Yes. Also, Internet is full of humor that did not originate on a neo-Nazi website. Just sayin'.

    Defense from what, exactly?

    Did the satire hit a little too close to home?

    To what your statement was in response to, duh. Do you normally post links to white supremacist websites?

    Pretending to not understand clear things is another dishonest debating technique, btw. This is one of the major problems with the whole Trump movement: it turns even the most mainstream supporters into fanatical demagogues. Comes from the constant need to defend the indefensible. Putin supporters are exactly the same way. It's really one movement now: your link shows the Far Right basically reusing Kremlin memes.

    Don't rise to the bait, Bruce. Stanislav's left knee jerked and he's trying to troll you into a flame battle by employing moral judgementalism and guilt-by-association.

    The left has transformed itself into neo-puritans over the last generation. They are always wagging their fingers in their opponents' faces, always condemning everyone else for their supposed moral lapses: Evil!, Evil!, Evil!, Sinner!, Sinner!, Sinner!

    Except these days it isn't 'Blasphemer!' as often as 'Racist! But whatever the epithet, the hatred, contempt and moral condemnation is exactly the same as it was in 17th century New England.

    Your joke was funny. I doesn't matter where it came from. I liked it.

    I don't really care whether or not that makes me one of the evil ones.

    That's my moral judgement. (It's one of the many reasons why I and 60 million other Russian agents obeyed our kremlin masters and voted for Trump.)

    Well, if the Right willingly abandoned the high moral ground, I see no problem with the Left taking it. In fact, all I can say is "gee, thanks!".

    As to whether it makes you "one of the evil ones"... Everyone have sinned, and fell short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). However, you did support a guy who, very blatantly, cultivated a base of support among racists. You can't be TOO surprised when you're associated with them, can you? Especially when promoting their media outlets. I seem to recall your side used to advocate personal responsibility.

    What are you talking about? Another white guy calling other white guys racist? I voted for Trump, oh wait I'm Black. I can tell you we have suffered as a race under Obama. I am so sick of you white liberals (I thought I was once) do nothing but keep us black on the planation's and out of the work force. If food stamp and welfare programs ended tomorrow, wed be on the path to equality.

    You seem confused. Try googling "trump racist" and see what you find.

    b4cz28, just do what he says and don't question it, the white liberal knows what's best for you.
