@owack6: I guess I too could've found a better source, but the point about FrontPage Magazine's obvious political slant remains.

Which is pretty funny when you think about what a mess it is to find a "good" source with all the fake news drama.

SPLC is an excellent source. chaser324 is being far too accommodating --possibly dangerously so-- to smears on what is the authority on identifying hate groups in the United States. It's just a sign of the times that identifying somebody as a bigot makes you a bigger meanie than being part of a hate group.

Indeed. The Southern Poverty Law Center are good peeps. They fought against Jim Crow laws for decades, were allies of Dr. Martin Luther King, and are still combating racial inequalities in the justice system today. Without going too into the weeds on this, the only folks who regularly criticize the SPLC are the "reverse racists are the real enemy" kind of crowd.

I'm mainly chiming in on this thread to commend @jeff and @danryckert for speaking out against the Muslim Ban on Twitter. This issue transcends politics into the realm of basic human decency, and I'm glad they took a stand. Mad respect to @alex who already had me scoping out my local DSA chapter.

Last word goes to Professor Killah:

Just so i understand, so they didn't do the things i listed? or you think those examples are fine and legitimate behavior?

I have no idea whether that publication leans left or right but there's more articles about it around.

I think you might be feigning ignorance here. It's clear what the political slant of that outlet is from that article alone, not to mention the other articles on its front page about "leftist tyranny" and "Obama is an anti-Semite".

I would caution you against trusting anything you read there to be anything close to factual or impartial. Here's an assessment from the Southern Poverty Law Center of FrontPage Magazine and its owner if you'd like to investigate further.

That's fair enough. I should have spent some more time seeking a less inflammatory source.

You complained about his source being a far right propaganda site and then link an SPLC page? the same group that said this in 2011: "We’re not really set up to cover the extreme Left.", listed Ben Carson as an extremist, FBI removed them as a legitimate source in 2014, listed Muslim reformers on the anti extremist list - Article.

I expect those of you who are fine with this EO to have no problem with any limitations on your ability to move about the world when inevitably your American citizenship results in bans for entry into other countries. Hell, Iran already has done so, to which I say, good on them. Turnabout is fair play.

As an Israeli citizen i'm already banned from these following countries: Algeria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria,United Arab Emirates, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Brunei.

Just so you understand how this part of the world works.

I mostly subscribe to political stuff so i'll just recommend the one Chanel which is discussion oriented.

The Rubin Report - Interviews with personalities on the left and the right of the political spectrum.

And some random channels:

daito manabe - This guy creates visuals for Japanese concerts. he does Perfume's stuff and he did the Japanese closing show in the last Olympics.

Cooking with dog - Bitof a cooking buff and this elderly Japanese lady shows Asian cuisine with a dog by her side.

Bruno Albouze - A more serious cooking channel about French cooking. This guy is incredibly talented and has a ridiculous accent.

@thatpinguino: I don't think anyone is defending the policy the way it was implemented.

The only thing some people are saying is that nothing about an immigration ban is unconstitutional or illegal.

The way it was rolled up and implemented was absolutely a disaster, it seems there was no thought put into it before it was sent out at all.

@spaceinsomniac: The administration have every right to impose an immigration ban but they are currently not organized enough to execute these very sensitive orders.

The language on the EO should have been triple checked, and from what i'm hearing it was not. hopefully someone is fired for this.

So is there anything in this article for someone that hates JRPG'S and FF but does enjoy learning about the inner workings of game development?

My god this is the most groan-inducing, eye-roll worthy comment.

I apologize for your eye strain.

Perhaps a bit hyperbolic on my part. :)

Woah, can't believe how positive the response is. As someone who's seen the movies but don't have any reverence for the series, this thing was unbelievably boring. Absolute snorefest.

I thought i was going crazy pretty much hating the previous movie while it was getting universal praise from everyone, and now this lowered the bar even further.

I actually liked Godzilla way more at least the monsters looking fucking bad ass in that movie so it was worth the bummer tone and very weak characters and acting.

All this movie had was amazing cinematography and a cool Vader scene at the end.

Star Wars fans just have no standards at all.
