Most of my ancestors were W of Rome, and barbarians ;-)  But there must have been a lot of Roman army veterans mixed in there.  And already in Roman times you have Jewish people in W Europe, particularly Spain and France.  My other Jewish relatives were supporting Persia.  Anti-Greek and anti-Roman.

The Left are the losers of society.  Even when they win, they lose, because a new hierarchy is formed anyway.  I am sympathetic to the under-dog, but only if they are canine ;-)

No matter what I won't vote conservative, and if I were american I wouldn't vote republican either. But the current liberal system at play in western countries has enough issues I wouldn't vote for them either.

I'd rather be a free thinking non-voter then conforming to either side.

Or you're just putting too much stock in a Twitter movement. Remember, on the internet, everything is amplified. And there's issues with bots — I am completely unconcerned when a bot tells me it's leaving either party, because they're bots. If they had any political affiliations, they'd form the Corpore Metal party.

(I hope someone recognizes that reference.)

I am not happy with MAGA ... but as an American, there is no other choice at this time.  I won't support a French/Russian/Chinese/Cuban revolution here.  But I won't vote for tyrants of any flavor ... until they make voting mandatory, and have only one party, and only one candidate per office.  That is coming.  That is what makes totalitarians have ... joy joy.  We must become Red China ... or no fried rice for you!

People forget how progressive, how feminist, how optimist socialism and communism were 100 years ago.  I am also well aware how reactionary and selfish the status-quo supporting regressives are.  Weimar Republic ... if you don't support the Nazis you have to support the Communists?  That is the story of the last election.  But there is no Deep State ... says the Deep State.  I have said before, how many FBI and CIA trolls are here?

If you could ask the Etruscans, they would tell you it was the Romans that were the barbarians.

Loved that series, BTW. Rome was one of the first of HBO's big budget mini series productions. It was right up there with Game of Thrones. Probably better than Westworld.

Whoa.  Let's not go crazy.  Rome was alright, imo.  And considering that it was one of the first big budget historical productions (and most memorable town crier), it has a special place in my heart.  But as good as Game of Thrones and Westworld?  Nah.  Those are at a whole 'nother tier.

Hell, in terms of historical dramas, I'd personally rank Vikings much higher than Rome.  More memorable, more seasons, better acting, better production, better music, etc.

But Rome laid the groundwork for the success of these shows, so it gets props for that.

Trump's presidency doesn't affect only Americans.

A lot of Europeans are hopeful that the Marxist (socialist) regimes will take heed and return to some sanity.
I won't hold my breath.

Look at Poland, Hungary, Chech Republic, Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Holland, Brexit,  Bavaria from Germany. They are all want to retain their culture, sovereignty and not bow to Brussel's pressure.

Merkel and Macron are globalist, they want to replace the European people with the migrants.
But when the migrants are in sufficient numbers, they [Merkel/Macron] will be replaced by the migrants.

The keyword is demography.

As I said often, Islam does not share power.  It does not negotiate or compromise.  Winner takes all.

Here in Europe, many are hopeful that Trump will deal with the globalist.

I liked Rome when compared to Thrones and Westworld because it was historical fiction.

Julius Caesar existed. Ragnar Lothbrok, probably not even if some of his supposed sons did. That's not to say I haven't enjoyed Vikings too.

Yeah, but that's like preferring a lemon over an orange because the lemon is more lemony.  Well of course it is.

GoT and Westworld were groundbreaking, garnered truly massive followings, and basically serve as flagship programs for HBO.  Rome, in contrast, is mostly important as a precursor for what came after.

IIRC, there were certain...liberties...taken with the historical record in both shows.  I would definitely say that Vikings was worse in that regard.  *camera pans to vikings who didn't know that England existed*

But beside that, Vikings made the audience feel for the characters and had a gripping plot.  With Rome, I loved the two soldiers and some of the political scheming, but I got very bored in places and had difficulty caring about what was going on.  And the cinematography/sets, despite being light-years ahead of what came before, still felt kinda cramped and unimmersive.  It was still somewhat difficult to maintain suspension of disbelief.

Granted, Vikings was a bit of a slow burn and has plenty of slow moments, but it never really felt boring to me.

"Rome" ... until they had to rush things, because they knew their next season was cancelled ... was brutally honest and accurate.  What people fail to realize, is that we are just Romans with iPhones.  Modern times are brutal also.

OK, let's look at things honestly here.  The Republicans spent millions of dollars and 3 YEARS investigating the alleged Benghazi incident and never found a shred of evidence of wrong-doing.  That never bothered them in the least and they keep acting as if their eventual report showed any evidence. 

The Mueller investigation is only a year or so old, and has indicted or gotten guilty pleas from 20 people and three companies — that we know of.  That isn't like the failed Benghazi that yielded no results.

Just the facts...

Democrats are the party of slavery (to their ideology).  Just as Republicans are the party of slavery to the wealthy.  There is a tie in ... poor people didn't own slaves, or rent them ... that was a rich person habit.  Good cop/bad cop with the Democrats being the foot soldiers of the plantation owners.

As it stands, there may be a fair amount of Democrats leaving the party because of propaganda like this; I honestly don't know, and I honestly don't care. If Democrats are walking away from the party because it's become too far right, than good for them... I don't particularly blame them.

I just hope they realise there isn't any better alternative in America and come back for the primaries and elections and vote for the progressives and socialists who have started running and winning on Democrat tickets, even without the support of the DNC.

The Huffington Post reported over the weekend that this troll attack is a counter-measure against the potential “blue wave” coming this fall, with the WalkAway hashtag intended to simulate real-world Democrats who have apparently chosen to leave the party due to its (try not to laugh) alleged intolerance and lack of civility. It’s a ludicrous concept, given the galactically more egregious incivility of Trump and his Red Hats, extending back at least three years and including a deadly terrorist attack in Charlottesville, among myriad other examples.

In any case, this "hashtag has been connected to Russian bots," according to the HuffPost report:

It has ranked as the third or fourth most popular Kremlin-linked hashtag for days, according to bot tracking by the Hamilton 68 site run by the bipartisan Alliance for Securing Democracy, which keeps tabs on Russian activity on the American internet.

Arc Digital has made the same connection in the “strikingly similar” tweets pushing a “familiar narrative” of Democratic “bullying.” Arc traced the campaign from a Facebook group in May and subsequent tweets whose traffic suddenly began to explode late last month.

There is more but this should be sufficient.

While I heavily question the validity of anything Huffpost reports, I am inclined to agree that this is a movement heavily funded by right-wing aristocrats to try and maintain their power. It went from non-existent to apparently the biggest political movement of all time (if you are to believe the youtube pundits) overnight, and that is more than just a little fishy.

Quote
...real-world Democrats who have apparently chosen to leave the party due to its (try not to laugh) alleged intolerance and lack of civility.

Is this really the reason they are giving?

I completely understand Democrats who leave because the party isn't progressive enough; I think it's shooting yourself in the foot by allowing people like Trump to win, but I understand where they are coming from.

But if that's what the #WalkAway movement is about... yeah, that's a load of propaganda bullshit. If anyone actually believes it's Democrats who are uncivil and intolerant, I need to meet them and tell them about some wonderful bridges I have to sell to them.

If anyone actually believes it's Democrats who are uncivil and intolerant, I need to meet them and tell them about some wonderful bridges I have to sell to them.

You are alike, separated by decades in age.  Old 60s person to the new 60s person (culturally not age wise).

Look, John Cleese is a Deep Tax Evader ...

Yes, Shiranu ... the aristocrats are after y'all ... gotta find and chop the Scarlet Pimpernel.

Y'all get a load of toilet paper, to take with you, when you get deported to Venezuela ... they use it down there as money.

A long term gad fly, has proof that Trump has been a Russian agent since 1987 ... he used mind control to get Obama and Hillary to buy into Uranium One.

Trump loves dictators.  We shouldn't.  The world Trump wants to join isn't one where most of us would live easily.  He loves Putin, Xi, Erdogan, and Kim Jong-un.  He hates democracy EU types.  What a grand world the US toady Repubs have given us...

If someone walks away from the Democratic party they support the Republicans and if someone walks away from the Republicans they support the Democrats, even if that person chooses not to vote. Walking away isn't working to reform a party's platform. There are no viable third-party alternatives and there will never be unless the US voting system is redesigned. People who say they are walking away from the Democratic party but are not necessarily supporting the Republicans are confused or disingenuous.

I never don't vote in primaries or general elections.  Primaries are the only reason I keep a party registery.

Bullshit, Joe Stalin.  Go kill another million Kulaks.

Democracy is over.  End it now.  Mostly because the voters are actually worse than the candidates ;-(

That is why I was a Democrat too, the caucus and the primary system.  If you still think that voting matters, then that is a good reason.  Just don't going the D or R party from shitsville.

They are having a slap fight over a meme.

No I man when democrats join the republican party and become trump worshipers just because they learned left politicians lie and the Pc gang ar bunch of assholes. Going to another party because your hurt will not hurt i'll only worsen when you know that all politicians are liars and any group can be dicks.

Perhaps, we weren't united as a nation until the British burned down Washington DC.  That hurt our pride a lot.  Andrew Jackson revenged that.

Andrew Jackson wasn't Gandhi.  Wasn't pacifist (but was anti-British), and kept slaves (like Indians had for millennia).

Notice New England ... traitors in 1775, in 1812 and in 1861.

Yes, Boris and Natasha ... serve Fearless Leader, messing up Spotsylvania ... and looking stupid compared to Rocky and Bullwinkle.

The technical analysis of the DNC server, shows the data was pulled by an insider.  The Russians may have been guilty to trying to buy that (who wouldn't).  And given sting operations by everyone, including the FBI, if someone in a trench coat tried to sell you the inside stuff on X or Y ... you are an idiot.

What's with the "Retard" obsession?  I'm asking because it might be a term I think I know but might have some different meaning to you.
