  • We need 90 videos
  • I'm actually done with the Lincoln Project.
    Their videos are great and exact what Donald Trump deserves.  But there are two things at play here.

    First, these people laid the groundwork for Trump.
    Second, they are partially doing what they are doing because they (especially Rick Wilson) get off on being assholes.   Wilson particularly has repeatedly posted about how much fun he has had in making these videos and in writing his attacks in Trump .

    Third, these people are grifters who will follow the money.   Yes they realized there is a better long time future in fighting Trump and backing him, but that is it.

    You said two, then listed three, therefore I am reporting you to someone.

    Don't care. Any port in a storm.  This is a bad storm. I know who these people are. They are our allies today. We can save the fussing with them for later. Right now, we need them.

    Ah, I think you might need to reorder your priorities.

    Instead of complaining that the originators are not as pure as you like, perhaps should concentrate on the positive effect they are having
  • This is fine and all, but Obama and Hillary have been living rent-free in Trump's head for four years.  The only thing that held them back were the norms expected of an ex-President and a defeated candidate.  Look at what happened this week when Obama finally took the gloves off.  The entire right-wing lost it's shiat because they're scared to death of him.

    The only value Lincoln Project brings is as cannon fodder to draw his wrath.

    He's just following the rules:  Then shalt thou count to three, no more-no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.
  • FTFA: Your house is on fire. Do you care who the firemen are?

    If your house is on fire....you should ABSOLUTELY care who the firemen are. For example: they might not know WTF they are doing.

    / also, those lost in the desert should ABSOLUTELY care where their water comes from
  • The greatest grift of all would be The Lincoln Project convincing you that they were ever on the side of good. They are not.

    Sort of like my Vampire run in Total War: Warhammer. The humans and dwarves allied with me to fight Chaos. I committed 15,000 skellies and 20 vampire lords. And then I watched as Chaos absolutely obliterated the humans. I swept in at the last second and saved my allies. But, I used their weakness to expand massively and, eventually, to crush them.

    / that is why you should never trust an enemy of an enemy
  • Yeah, I don't support anyone running into the white house or congress and using a chainsaw on sitting Repubicans.
    That would be wrong.

    I do like to laugh at the wrongs things.

    Welcome to Fark, jay peg.

    The enemy of my enemy might not be my friend, but that does not mean I must antagonize him or otherwise prevent him from defeating our common enemy.
  • Funny.

    However, back to reality. If this coma guy really voted for Trump in 2016, there is an 85% statistical chance he goes: "wow really? That's fantastic! He has done so much better than I ever imagined! Gosh, I am so happy I've woken up in time for the election so I can vote for him again!"

    Stalin was a murdering piece of shiat, but we needed him to kick Hitler's ass.

    So, like the Soviet Army in WWII

    Thank you citizen

    We will remedy the issue
  • Has anyone posted about how they're done with the Lincoln Project and how we shouldn't support them because, surprise, they're Republicans, yet?

    Also, I really need some insight on the saying "the enemy of my enemy is my friend."  Can anyone help me out with that?

    Most important big picture issue this country faces: regime change this January.

    Your points are solid, and I agree with most, except that I'm waiting until Nov 4th to be done with them.

    The enemy of my enemy is still my enemy, just a slightly less dangerous one.
  • The Lincoln Project only has one goal: Make sure Trump doesn't get reelected.

    Once that happens, they will go back to being dicks who hate the things that make America great.

    I'm with you on all of that, really, especially the last one, but while I'm not excited about it, the assholes are aimed at the right asshole, and if they want to make up for any of this horseshiat, it's an alright place to start. I just hope they have a plan for a (fingers crossed so hard they're separating at the knuckles) post-Trump America that isn't continuing to just post hot takes to rile up whoever holds office afterward. Though, I'm sure if they're willing to broaden their horizons in that field, there's a lot of good mud to sling elsewhere if they can avoid sinking knee-deep into partisan farkery.

    The way I look at it, Trump is both a symptom of decades of festering corruption and turning party into a sort of cargo cult by the right, but he is also its current greatest exacrrbator. Virtually anything that can throw Trump off his stride for even a moment is welcome right now, so long as it doesn't make the rest of our lots worse in the process.

    People might get it when they're responsible for directing trump 2.0 into a position of power.
