    I've wanted them to stop playing nice ever since Newt Gingritch decided that being a colossal asshat was good politics. But they've generally held the high ground...and lost most of their power compromising with the uncompromising GOP's ever-rightward march.

    If they're willing to stop playing nice by calling liars and conmen and traitors out and working to make sure we dont EVER have anyone like Trump in charge again, more power to them.

    I wish that weren't so much to ask for these days.
    They know there's no defense for flagrant white nationalism as a platform, so they distract by bringing up that one time one guy wore an 'open borders' t-shirt and pretend like that's policy, or get caught up on the word 'socialism' in hopes of distracting us from the reality that it's not socialists who are the problem.

    If they call out white nationalism, they lose support from all the racist crapsacks that form the core support the GOP, and they can't risk that. Thus...they rail and whine and throw fits that kick up all kinds of obfuscating dust about 'tax breaks' and 'socialism' instead of 'forcible sterilization of undesirables in US run concentration camps'.

    That's why I'm not playing nice. I'm sick of 'nice'. It gets nothing done. It let's the abusers slip through our fingers while we debate polite responses to their abuse. We need to stop providing wiggle room in these debates and discussions, because it gives them power to control the narrative with JAQoff questions and distraction bombs.

You are being terribly, terribly inaccurate. And in case you didn't know the US is in part a Social Democracy. Every Republican who wants to keep Medicare, Social Security, Unemployment Insurance (there may still be a few) and even Oil subsidies is a Social Democrat in part.
    The relevant thing about the Democratic Socialists of America isn't the name, but that the members who have won congressional primaries seem to be considered Democrats in good standing. They're not exactly running in Republican primaries.

    However, the name isn't entirely divorced from the Democrats, as founder Michael Harrington (technically, he founded Social Democrats, USA and the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee, which ended up forming the Democratic Socialists of America) did believe that socialists should work within the Democratic party.

    It seems he has gotten his wish.

    Imagine being so intellectually and morally bankrupt that you tried to conflate Democratic Socialism as an idea with anti-Semitism and Nazi sympathizing in practice.

    We get it. You think Neo-Nazis in your party is fine.

    I'm sure I read a couple of years ago that Ted Cruz said his favorite superhero was Rorschach from Watchmen...

    If Trump gets elected we'll likely see all kinds of new riot control methods, so let's all make sure that doesn't happen.

    I'm sure he'll brag about them to some rogue nation or the press while it's still in R&D, so people will have plenty of time to plan a contingency.

    If someone called the cops, they probably would have shot a Target employee instead of arresting these good, anti--socialist white heroes...

    On the one hand?

    I get that reaction.

    On the other hand?

    They look like they might be fifteen years older than I am if you added their ages up. If I'm looking at it logically...

    - Arresting Them For The Violation...
    - Taking Them In/Booking Them/Putting Them Into A Holding Cell...
    - Their Respective Folks Showing Up To Bail Them Out...

    Probably represents a more realistic threat of disease spread.

    Get the gut reaction. Feels like actually doing it could be a net negative.

    Oh, I forgot that's how the police deal with... some kids. I was thinking they'd just roll up and pop them or cave their heads in.
