To be fair, he's not here to defend himself.

That being said, of course he's lying.

Love it. Keep going. Maybe Clinton wrote her secret instructions to AntiFa on the back on the Declaration of Independence with heat-activated invisible ink?

*Scoffing comment about Buzzfeed, small backpedal, story about my father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate who is half black half native american and half southerner and loves all tribes, tongues, and nations and was unjustly attacked by the Antifa*

How'd I do?

I heard Obama's real first names are Kim and Jong and I totally saw a receipt for cruise missiles in Soros' pocket. He got them at WalMart.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

No, they're Vladimir and Ilyich, and nukes are at Sam's Club, not Walmart.

Sam's Club has better pizza. You get a free MIRV when you purchase three or more pizzas.

You get a free MIRV about 6-12 hours after eating one, too.

The Dixie Highway runs through it.

Not commenting on how valid that is, just mentioning that's the given reason.

In a similar vein, looks like it got removed by the city, but was township property.

Looks like it was put up in the 20s which completes the circle of 'bullshit' monument.

Don't post and run, please explain what you find interesting/offensive/great/inspiring/silly about the photos. You wouldn't want us to assume or put words in your head, yes?

… or destroy property even?

If all they did was peacefully protesting, where is the problem?

I'm pretty sure Chongo is protesting the part of the sign with the NAMBLA logo and the "no pedo bashing", but: https://www.thedailybeast.com/alt-ri...ke-nambla-sign

I don't think it's that, because he included two other unrelated pictures.

The same poeple are in all three. They are claiming they were trolled?

Chongo: why is it that you only need some pictures to be persuaded about something like Antifa, but massive amounts of peer reviewed evidence pertaining to climate change is insufficient?

Do you ever doubt your commitment to your political ideologies?

I'm not sure he actually believes the pictures are true (not antiprotesters photobombing) or just enjoys reposting things that make the other side look bad, regardless of proof.

Probably so. I wish I could understand this "other side" in his mind. Part of the time it seems anti-religious/catholic, part of the time (perhaps more of the time) it seems anti-left. There are certainly tons of times when significant players in the right-wing are not Jesus-y, and this is even leaving aside the apparent debate on whether Jesus was a fan of helping the poor. Yet, he doesn't seem to pivot, just sort of sneakily shifts the goalposts around to deflect stuff. It must be exhausting having to defend two groups of flawed individuals tireless and constantly.

Chongo, I'm here to tell you that there doesn't have to be a traditional other side. It can simply be Chongo's world and spiritual view vs. everybody else's. This doesn't require your tireless defence of the right or a particular church or your knee-jerk attacks on the "other side".

Besides, I'm much more interested in the Chongo-way than the constant news cycle of talking points, internet click-bait and conspiracy theory. I can get that anywhere, but I can only get Chongo here.

True, you got me there.

A bessonbot would also lead Chongo to believe that it has an army of sockpuppets, and also be incredibly charming and witty. It would be a much harder bot to write.
