    Who gives a sh*t. That's not the point. Whataboutism at its finest. If you had any semblance of intelligence about you, you'd realize I don't disagree on that. I just think you're a fool for...

    Who says they don't? Why is your immediate reaction to jump to "oh, he thinks everything coming out of the media is BS". Sounds like you're going straight to the extreme on assumptions. And then...

    Saying as many women have been raped as stalked is quite a stretch. 1 in 5? I call BS. If you count unwanted sexual advances, sure. That could even be a guy taking a pass at a woman - an unwanted...

    So as many women have been stalked as raped? I'm not buying that. Maybe their definition for "rape" is any unwanted sexual advance. If it's actual, full-on, forced intercourse, I have some high,...

    "interfered" - wtf does that mean? Is no public official allowed to talk about foreign domestic affairs? Please tell me you're joking or this was tongue-in-cheek.

    Ok, then 67% of the electorate didn't vote for the Nazis in the last election when Hitler became chancellor. Again, that is a misleading way of looking at it. It was not a one or two or three party...
