    It's got nothing to do with some kind of media conspiracy, it's just that anyone who isn't a Steelers homer recognizes that Roethlisberger is a complete dirtbag and that his ability to throw a...

    Gabbard's views on Islam are troubling for sure, but I feel like people lately have been way too quick to cast stones at any anti-Muslim activity originating in foreign countries to cast it as some...

    I'm not defending Brown's behavior, but it's also a bit disingenuous for people to act all shocked and appalled by it. There's this universal tenet in the NFL that toxic and unprofessional behavior...

    No matter how bad the Syrian regime is though, there is virtually no chance that ousting them militarily and replacing them with a new US-backed government, no matter how committed to democracy and...

    It's not surprising that an NFL quarterback would be the living caricature of a fratboy douchebag, but it's saying a whole lot about how bad it's gotten that he actually gets called out for this and...

    Well then the solution is to call them out on that so that they can fix their behavior and start acting like decent human beings, not to keep coddling and enabling them for votes, especially when...

    Yeah but the NFL owners are a miserable bunch of robber barons and trust fund babies that nobody would ever miss if they disappeared forever. Most of them are as clueless about football as they are...

    It's been a long century for the Cards...

    But hey they still got that 1947 championship to hang their hats on, no one can ever take that one away from them.
  9. The stereotypes against various white ethnic...

    The stereotypes against various white ethnic groups in America are just another example of xenophobia borne out of ignorance and misunderstanding, the same as you would find anywhere else in the...
  10. Frankly, I think the Trump administration just...

    Frankly, I think the Trump administration just opened Americans' eyes to how the rest of the world has seen us all along. Granted, most of these countries are in no position to criticize our society...
  11. I'm not seeing the joke here, that's pretty much...

    I'm not seeing the joke here, that's pretty much exactly what happened in Italy and Germany in the 1920s.
  12. The problem with "humanitarian intervention" is...

    The problem with "humanitarian intervention" is that it's never more than a pretext for military actions that serve the usual objectives of resource extraction and power projection. The next time...
  13. If at this point, knowing everything we know now,...

    If at this point, knowing everything we know now, you still think that a Clinton presidency would be anywhere near as bad as what we've seen from Trump, then you should probably just stop lying to...
  14. And especially on the left, these small parties...

    And especially on the left, these small parties do love to spend all of their time going after each other over relatively minor points of contention rather than focusing on the right. Think of the...
  15. The people in the video don't come off well but...

    The people in the video don't come off well but at the end of the day that sort of thing is harmless. It's only some kind of damning evidence if you buy into that whole conspiracy of PC millennials...
  16. Well the right needs to decide whether it wants...

    Well the right needs to decide whether it wants the left to be a bunch of dangerous radicals hellbent on destroying America, or overly PC clowns that can't get their shit together long enough to...
  17. Though not really suitable for history purists,...

    Though not really suitable for history purists, the Netflix Roman Empire series covered Caligula's reign pretty well, mixing Game of Thrones esque sequences with talking head commentary. I thought...
  18. To be fair, Caligula was universally beloved by...

    To be fair, Caligula was universally beloved by the Roman people upon his accession and spent the first few months of his reign embarking on badly needed infrastructure improvements and political...

    Honestly, we don't deserve to win the trade war. It's always been more than a bit ass backwards that Americans are the ones constantly bitching about outsourcing. If it had been Chinese companies...

    B-but muh eCoNoMiC AnXiEtY...

    Also, the US-Saudi relationship is taking a page straight out of the British Empire playbook. Empower a small group of corrupt local elites to rule on your behalf...

    Because religions aren't really competing for followers based on the objective merit of their ideas, the more organized and cohesive belief systems tend to win out over loosely defined notions of...
  22. To be perfectly fair, the idea that women are...

    To be perfectly fair, the idea that women are somehow naturally more compassionate and empathetic than men is itself quite a misogynistic stereotype, as if adult women are childlike simpletons who...
  23. This idea that it'd somehow be unfair to pay out...

    This idea that it'd somehow be unfair to pay out reparations to anyone who wasn't directly enslaved is just another lie that moderates want to tell themselves in order to keep on doing nothing. The...

    It's worth pointing out that the Beer Hall Putsch itself ended in a miserable failure and the Nazis only rose to power a decade later because of electoral shenanigans. The communists and social...
  25. The definitions of what constitutes the left and...

    The definitions of what constitutes the left and right wing are always dependent on historical context and can rarely be reduced to specific issues. For instance, much of what we now consider to be...
