Kenya passes a security bill.

I know many of you probably don't know or care much about Kenyan politics. But do you think this seems like a legitimate concern for security? Or an attempt by the current government to discourage opposition and hold on to power?

Did Stalin have his own holocaust ?    
I was looking at the victims of Stalins "Great Purge" and most of them look either Jewish or have Jewish names

As far as I'm aware, Stalin didn't target Jews I speak of family experience and limited historical knowledge that I have . He was a paranoid fuck who targeted everybody. It's communism so everyone suffers, equality.

Let us not forget that Stalin had people take care of business for him. Head of secret police type positions and all.

The difference is that the people themselves in Russia could have been quite antisemetic which could have drove off many Russian Jews. You don't just go from nation wide Jewish purges in the Tsarist era to communist equality in one revolution. However both my parents never were targeted for being Jews and as far as anybody they know too.

They really left like so many others did because Russia is just a shithole in general, end of story.
User avatar #74467 to #74445 - akkere (10 hours ago) [-]
I'm not sure if Stalin orchestrated the Purge to target specifically the Jews, but there was a large degree of anti-semitism in the later stages of the Soviet Union that drove the ethnic group away and more towards the West if I recall correctly. There's quite a bit of them over here in New Jersey in certain small yet concentrated parts, as I've noticed.
Lulz could probably comment on the matter effectively, given his background.

After WW2, Stalin became worried about zionism. I highly doubt he'd be worried about jews and zionism before that, otherwise he wouldn't contribute to the creation of Israel. Also, Stalin openly condemned anti-semitism, as anti-semitism is opposed to communist ideals.

"The BBC reported on January 5 that "Witnesses and analysts confirm that Hamas fires rockets from within populated civilian areas.[22] Amnesty International assessed that Hamas fighters put civilians in danger by firing from homes.[117] United Nations Humanitarian Affairs Chief John Holmes accused Hamas of "reckless and cynical" use of civilian facilities during the hostilities in the Gaza Strip, and told that the above, as well as indiscriminate firing of rockets against civilian populations, are clear violations of International Humanitarian Law.[118] In the course of the fighting, purported evidencies of Hamas' exploitation of civilian infrastructure were recorded in ITIC reports.[119][120][121] A study by CSIS suggests that Hamas must share responsibility for the outcome on the civil population, as it seems to have relied on the population density of Gaza to both deter Israeli attacks, and as a defense against Israeli offensive.[25] Irwin Cotler said that attacks from within civilian areas and civilian structures in order to be immune from a response, e.g. apartment building, a mosque or a hospital, are unlawful; he argues that in these cases Hamas bears legal responsibility for the harm to civilians, as enshrined in general principles of International Humanitarian Law.[122] ITIC accused Hamas of making systematic use of protected civilian areas (including homes and mosques) for the hiding and storage of rockets, explosives and ammunition; using of civilian facilities (such as universities) for weapons development; calling on Palestinians to flock to targets which are expected to be attacked in order to form "human shields". ITIC states that such conduct contravenes the Laws of Armed Conflict and some of the practices above, e.g. Art. 8(2)(b)(xxiii) of the International Criminal Court, amount to a war crime"

It's not Israels' problem where Hamas resides, if Hamas posses a danger by firing rockets they must be stopped. It's there responsibility as a government of Gaza to not put their own civilians in danger by mixing military/soldiers with civilians.

They are just freedom fighters, on the other hand Jizzrael bombs everything to the ground on false allegations. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_law_and_the_Gaza_War_%282008%E2%80%9309%29#Attacks_on_civilians_and_civilian_objects_.28the_principle_of_distinction.29

they even dont let palestitians ride the bus in Israel, how tolerant and proggresive !
#74466 to #74462 - cabbagemayhem (11 hours ago) [-]
They're not freedom fighters. They're nothing but a bunch of terrorists who are in power by force. Not only is it well-documented that they launch rockets from schools, they use their own civilians as human shields. Israel drops leaflets to avoid civilian casualties, and Hamas tells them to ignore them, because they want their people to die for propaganda.

Hamas brainwashes their people from childhood to hate people they never met using children shows that resemble Sesame Street and Disney characters. They snatch up Israeli civilians for God knows what purpose. When Israel builds a wall, they dig into Israel to do it. They all of their gasoline, such that their people barely have any. They never stop wasting their people's resources to provoke their own destruction. And, when Israel decides enough is enough, Hamas cries oppression.

Don't tell me about how progressive Israel isn't, when Hamas is part of the discussion. The only thing Israel could do better is follow through, and remove Hamas from power, so the people could at least make up their own mind again.

Not much diffrent than the terrorists on UN payroll known as the IDF, if someone bulldozed my house to build their's i'd be pritty pissed.

So inorder to stop them we must blow up all schools right? Inorder to stop hamas lets just blow up all of gaza, wait you're a kike, this braindead thinking is what's actualy in your head.

How the fuck do the palestinian children know what seasame street and disney are, they have no power, israel blew up the power station. Ofcourse they would dig under the wall, no one likes to live in a concentration camp.

The kikes should stop beeing so racist and treat palestinians better. Maybe then people wont consider blowing themselves up and ending their own lives just to kill a few snot-nosed flithy limpdicked kikes.

His video develops very much like a negro's accosting of the "White man" on slavery.

So much attention is given to historical trivia that one forgets the topic. This is related only briefly at the end, in an attempt to establish contemporary bearing.

>Blacks were shipped, in foul, cramped conditions to the United States, where they were obligated to endure heavy, arduous labor, for the benefit of the White man.
<Hence Blacks built America.
<Hence America is a racist country.
<Hence y'all should just feel guilty about that, and shut up.

Notice how history, in this type of argument, is limited to slavery. If one tries to reason with a proponent of it by saying that "times have changed," he will likely reference, or allude to, the mysterious "legacy of slavery."

>Bolshevik leaders, well versed in the French Revolution, founded the Cheka so as to purge political dissent. Terror as state doctrine, however, was never phased out. Stalin maintained a secret police force in the NKVD/NKGB under his Jewish henchman, Yagoda, who directed its bloody, internal affairs. Along with a string of successors, he relied upon lesser agents to do the state's dirty work. Putin would be one of these, making a name for himself in the later KGB.
<Hence Putin is a student of Yagoda.
<Hence Russia possess a foreign mentality.

Notice how history, here, is limited to the Soviet Union.

This neocon, Bill Whittle, fails to even mention what occurred in 1991, when the "KGB was renamed the FSB." He does not make known who appointed Putin to his post as the FSB's director. When he claims that Putin succeeded Yagoda "in an unbroken chain," the implication is that the Soviet Union never fell.

To kosher conservatives like Whittle, of course, it might as well have never fallen. Putin antagonized his lot, beyond redemption, when he dared to reclaim Russia from Exxon-Mobile, and Bill Clinton's various oligarch friends.

I don't think you have any idea of what happened. Nor am I at all aware of Ventura's opinions on Israel.

What he literally did is when he went to a funeral, he disrespected the dead and talked about how the marines where immoral so he got rightfully punched in the face by Chris Kyle.

Who would be the worst presidential nominees in 2016? By "worst", I don't mean who you'd hate to see president. But a candidate who would be unlikely to win or likely lose in a landslide because of frequent gaffes, extreme views that isolate moderates and centrists, or just not being a very captivating or charismatic speaker, etc.

Joe Biden would probably be the worst possible Democratic nominee. And I imagine most people would agree with that. It doesn't sound like anyone else has really expressed interest. They could have trouble finding a good candidate if Hillary decides against running.

Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Michelle Bachmann would all be awful choices on the Republican party's part. But I could really only see Rick Perry actually getting the nomination. And that's still pretty unlikely. But if Mitt Romney could, it's possible. Ted Cruz might also be a poor choice, I could see him isolating some Establishment Republicans.

Joe Biden is the king of Gaffe's and seems really unlikely to win. And i feel like as 2016 will be nearing Clinton will probably make a lot of poor campaign choices, combined with her hawish views it leaves her open to become unpopular. And aside from Biden, Clinton and Warren there really is no democratic candidate who seems even remotely close to having a chance.

For the Republican party tea partiers like Bachmann and Cruz are unlikely to win. Paul will depend on how he'll compromise his political views.

Can a news source be truly unbiased and objective?
User avatar #74470 to #74401 - akkere (5 hours ago) [-]
Objective? Certainly.
Unbiased? Probably not.
It boils down to writing style; if a writer is simply putting down the facts as they hear it and not bother trifling in statements of flair and perspective, then they can certainly achieve the necessity of objectivity.
However, bias will always be a problem. Screen time, article time, etc, is limited, so certain facts need more time than others, and some may present more value to them at the expense of others. That's why it's necessary that we have numerous news sources accessible to the public rather than leave an individual to be connected and isolated to a single news source.

Basically, you can go straight to the point and cut to the chase, but it's unlikely you'll be able to cut to the chase in an equal manner.

Lol i was never a Social democrat, in fact it's social democrats who support corporate cronyism over the individual. I used to be more left-wing yes but social democrat?

Technology itself is largely irrelevant to the debate. Nearly everyone would agree that equally fast internet is a good thing. The debate is whether the government should be involved with the regulation which is a debate based on economics. Which to i say instead of letting the government hold the power and continue to destroy and stifle competition we should actively allow for a cronyless free market in the broadband industry and give people the choice to go for a broadband which has or hasn't got net neutrality. Besides most ISP's have been neutral without regulation until this debacle showed up.

Ever heard the saying "when you stare into the abyss long enough, it stares back at you."?

Well when it does stare back at you you have two options. You can either turn away in disgust, and get as far away from it as you can, or you can jump in.

When you consume propaganda your heart either hardens and rejects it completely, or it softens and embraces everything it has been told.

ISPs aren't unnatural monopolies though. Like most other utility providers, they are natural monopolies.
You can't have a bunch of companies each dig up the ground, lay their own cables, then have a customer only pick one. So there are a lot of start up costs.
User avatar #74364 to #74362 - kanadetenshi (12/17/2014) [-]
Like any company starting up requires risks and costs to get it going, but it's not as difficult as people make it out to be. In the UK villagers in Lyddington, Rutland, have banded together and raised the capital to lease BT's services and lay their own fibre-optic cables, turning their internet no-go zone into a digitally connected hub that offers the 200 homes in the village download speeds of up to 40Mbps. And there are other alternatives as well. I mean just look at how the telecommunication market went from only a few competitors to thousands of competitors.
