  1. We all want our own audience. And we eventually have to be the leader of that crowd… at best. Its not pretty to look at ourselves, if all we do are ugly thinga.

  2. So how was this show framed by the alt-right and that whole chapter of USA politics that makes any non-american go: 'defuq is even going on over there?' Was it deemed propaganda or such?

  3. "How many different kinds of disgusting do you have to be to boo a man who volunteered to fight and KILL for you?" That is correct , he is defending anything . He invade other country . Damn propaganda and you are just so stupid or just so evil and dont want to see it .

  4. KILLING PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD IS F*CKING SICK!!! IT ISNT PROTECTING YOUR COUNTRY. THE TERRORISTS WE MOST NEED TO WORRY ABOUT ARE ALL GOVERNMENTS AND MOST LARGE CORPOATIONS!!! PERIOD!!!

  5. Fuck me, I love The Newsroom. Will Macavoy is a terrific fucking character and Jeff Daniels is an amazing actor. Fuck me again, I love The Newsroom.

  6. Newsroom is so universal. And every citizen wishes to have this guy in their national media which right now is polarised more than Goebbels's propaganda films.

  7. if you are willing to pick up arms and fight for me, put your life on the line for me, then I do not care one single bit what your sexual orientation is, because as far as I'm concerned its Bad Ass.

  8. Our troops aren't fighting for freedom, they're fighting for the corporations. There is absolutely zero defense, it's all offense, and anyone dumb enough to not see that deserves a bullet in the head.

  9. i want to fight for our freedom. i want with every fiber of my body to become what the enemy fears. i have no qualms with killing or being killed on the battlefield in defence of this great nation. but i have a few things to remark about that; one: i don't just want to kill the enemy, that's not why i want to join. i want to join to preserve our country so the people stateside can try to fix all the problems with the country. two: i don't want to die just so that some ceo of some oil conglomerate can put in a few wells and line his pockets with money he saved bynot paying foreign countries for their oil.

  10. I know about a guy that once said his foot was hurting to not get drafted for Vietnam, quoting Eminem "… he is gay, but you ard a faggggggggg"
    Now that foot hurting man "leads" the country
    I don't judge people who try to avoid going to a war, I judge people who attacks someone value's cuz of his sexual inclinations

  11. lol so lame, two people in a crowded room booed, oh darn. What a lame propaganda piece. Hollywood loves shit like this, tell a story that intentionally makes you draw comparisons to real life then spin the story to fit your narrative the way real life never does. Reporters are just overpaid puppets, stop pretending like even the pretend ones are any sort of heroes, theyve all been lying to you for decades now.

  12. It's funny (not). I served 23 yts in the Army, and my cmds, and sgts cheated on their wives, and husband's, but but they say dumb/stupid things about LGBT. A person who has no respect for their spouse ( who they made a pledge to) will not give a damn about me in a fire fight.
