America has gone from being a Ballard novel to a Palahniuk novel.

Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature.

You're right.

Anyway, turns out young Mr. Harrouff was a Donald Trump fan, and while biting chunks of his victim's face off, the teen was wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.

The really disturbing thing is that despite being a cannibal killer this guy actually sounds like he's more lucid and less out of touch with reality than the typical Republican, and even moreso compared to extreme Republicans. The article even makes reference to him at one point being "coherent", which is something you almost never get from your average Teapartyer, ever.

From the side of the stage Mr Trump smiled and clapped. Mr Farage spoke about when President Obama came to the UK and urged voters to remain in the EU. "He talked down to us," he said, "he treated us as nothing."
Mr Farage said "I can't possibly tell you how you should vote", but added he would not vote for Hillary Clinton "if you paid me".
It was not an endorsement but it came close.

Trump's campaign spending continues to only use cheap suits.

That Farage is willing to endorse Trump in all but name should put to rest any doubts that he is entirely comfortable with racism and bigotry.

Win or lose though, it's still setting the stage for tons of future bigotry. The aftermath of this feels like it's going to be very ugly and in a couple of cycles we'll be referring to these cretins as moderates.

There were doubts??????  :eek:
Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.     St George Carlin

"Oh Farage is just appealing to racists for the votes".

Ain't any votes to be had now, though.

There is an opening for idiotic talking head though. With any luck he'll go the way of moron and fuck off to the USA until they're sick of his shit.

Still, interesting to see the link this openly so my mind goes to Russia and money. Farage may be angling for a taste of that pie, events from the past couple of weeks seem to support this suspicion.

Maybe he and Piers Morgan could co-host a show?

Also, the main financial backer of UKIP has a Russian wife, and some interesting connections to the Russian secretary/mistress of a certain Lib Dem, who was accused of being a Russian agent of influence.

Do not jest about such shows. Someone is likely to take it seriously.

I take it the lib was/is lembit? In either event it's a very odd network of possible influence that's covering a lot of demographics.

Please feel free to tell me I'm being horribly stupid and paranoid.

Nah, not Lembit.  That was the Romanian twins, and Romania is a staunch NATO ally.  Well, a NATO ally anyway.

I was thinking of  Mike Hancock.  When Arron Banks, the UKIP financier, had problems regarding his wife's visa, it was Hancock who interceded on his behalf.  Hancock had a four year affair with Katia Zatuliveter.  She had close contacts with someone in the Russian Embassy, who MI5 had fingered as an SVR officer.

I AM disappointed that Farage cut his mustache off, though.
