    Oh right post number 37 was actually an acknowledgement that trump has done something positive. I must have misunderstood because I assumed it was just some opportunity to praise Steptoe. Good stuff.

    Which picture of a frog is the alt right one? Is it the Hitler one? The stalin one? Or the jesus one? What hidden alt right white nationalist message are they spelling out Johnnyboy? It's your responsibility to inform the world.

    Then again, that trusted anti-hate group the Anti Defamation League has this to say on the matter:

    "The mere fact of posting a Pepe meme does not mean that someone is racist or white supremacist."

    "The majority of uses of Pepe the Frog have been, and continue to be, non-bigoted."

    It's odd jonnyboy that you'd consider the frog an alt-right symbol when such a respected Jewish organisation is saying it isn't. But then I wouldn't expect someone who refuses to condemn anti semitism to be too keen on agreeing with Jews...

    Oh dear, any thread containing Guided Missile and hypochondriac is sure to follow an inevitable path.

    Although to be honest, when I saw the OP I thought it was ironic, it was so far from reality. Trump, I'm afraid, is beyond satire.

    It's the gandhi frog that'd the real insidious one isn't it. You tell them jonnyboy, seek out the truth of that evil trump and his Legion of frog loving racists.

    Kim is an evil dictator, but if this meeting assists in securing less nuclear weapons in the world and less tensions on the Korean perninsula then I don't cere how it makes Trump look. Some people would prefer Trump had no sort of success at all simply because he is trump which just shows where their priorities lie. I can't understand a mindset that would prefer trump to fail in everything he does rather than hoping that he is successful because it would be a positive thing. No surprise that that's your mindset soggy because you'd prefer to feel smug and good about how morally superior you are compared to everyone else rather than achieve anything substantial.
    I dont feel "smug and good about how morally superior" I am to every one else - just those, like you who either are extremists or support extremists. Following your ridiculous quote that "socialism is dangerous" you have gone on to support the likes of Trump, Yaxley-Lennon, Katie Hopkins, Rees-Mogg, Johnson etc. What do they have in common? Yes, they are all very right of centre so let's not pretend that you have any kind of balance here with anything left of centre. The reason we assume that your (strange) use of Pepe the Frog as your avatar has anything to do with anything other than the alt-right is based on your many, many posts slagging the left and supporting the (often) far right. You are a long busted flush.

    As for this summit being a success and making the world a safer place? Really? Let's just see what actually happens apart from two extremists soaking up plenty of self publicity and not actually committing to anything concrete. Is that grey enough for you Pepe?

    Exactly, let's just wait and see. Although imagine the uproar from the right wing press if it had been Obama, or even Corbyn, in Singapore promising to end sanctions, remove troops and legitimise Kim. There cries of apologist and socialist would be deafening.

    I'm no fan of Trump, it's bizarre that he was even close to being elected yet alone made president. But credit should be given where it's due - it has to be good to hold talks with North Korea. Also ISIS have been taking a beating recently so I guess he should take some credit for that, though there are obviously many other influences in that region.

    The problem is everyone is so obsessed with the left v right, red v blue ******** they refuse to give anyone for the 'other side' any credit. Hell would freeze over before any Labour nobhead congratulates Trump on anything, likewise as the post above says, if Corbyn had met Kim then there would be absolute uproar by the Tory idiots.

    Your "support" of all of those people amounts to not referring to them as neo nazis or fascists. You have no understanding that there is a wide spectrum between support and calling someone a fascist. It's why all of your arguments lack any nuance and you're mostly a joke figure on here.

    Oh and I'm sure that your "wait and see" approach will turn into warm congratulations if this move does succeed in lowering tensions in the region? Of course you won't, you'd rather hack your own arm off than type anything positive about something that you feel doesn't fit your ideological position. Youre just as hopelessly biased as you believe others to be.

    I am surprised Corbyn hasn't lavished praise upon Trump yet. I thought this 'talking to dictators' malarkey was straight out of the Corbyn textbook.

    If it helps you, just assume that my use of pepe is in total agreement with Matt Furie who clearly wants it to be seen as politically neutral. Thankfully a frog picture can have a multitude of different meanings to loads of different people. I stand with the southern poverty law Centre who recognise that those who use a cartoon frog as a hate symbol are in the minority.

    I wonder what the reaction of corbynites would have been if Jezza had trotted off to meet dictator Kim. Really makes you think.

    Whatever your political leanings -the jury is out- one thing is crystal clear: you're doing to get a rise which makes you bit of a bellend.

    Quite, as with his previous avatar. Its like Glasgow, desperate for attention, any attention. Which is what makes it tragic.

    The swastika is an ancient religious icon that was also appropriated by the far right. We pretty much know where people are coming from when they use it themselves nowadays. As far your political leanings, given that you constantly support far right extremists and alt-right agitators on here, the fact that you are using an image appropriated by the alt-right pretty much nails you to their cause.

    I did it because of the predictably hysterical reaction it would provoke from the type of people that spend their days perpetually screaming about imagined fascists. Some even reside on here. The irony that some are still bringing it up and referring to it after I changed it weeks ago is completely lost on them. Soggy and jonnyboy can't stop referring to it so it's obviously got under their skin. I'm quite happy to be called a bell end for annoying those types of posters. If they can't cope with a frog cartoon character without spouting off about fascism then they've obviously lived a very sheltered life and have very little self control.

    I value diversity of thought. Without differences of opinion on here you'd just have the likes of soggy, verbal and moonraker huffing their own farts and circle jerking to guardian opinion pieces. If preventing that is considered attention seeking then I'm happy to be labelled one.

    I don't agree with many new left or far left opinions but I'm happy to accept that those opinions are sincerely held. It's depressing the amount of people who cannot say the same about libertarian, liberalist or centre right opinions which are branded as hate speech or neo nazi by the usual posters and thus can be dismissed out of hand. As aintforever said earlier, how unfortunate that some are so close minded and tribal that they cannot even enter into a conversation containing ideas they disagree with without attacking the other poster with false accusations of nazism or fascism or suggesting they support an assortment of far right personalities.

    It is - and it's all to easy. I can't believe that actual grown ups think Trump has done anything other than try to build condos on North Korean beaches and buff his own pumped up ego.

    Here's a reedited version of something that's dangerously close to being beyond parody.

    You have a mate? Singular I note. Do you wear matching Pepe t-shirts? Not for the first time you duck the issue and go off at an irrelevant tangent as a smokescreen. Just so as we are clear, you constantly support far right extremists and alt right mouthpieces on here. You use an avatar which has been appropriated by the alt right, clearly not ironically given your posting history. We can all see where you are coming from so why try and keep up the pretence?

    Why don't you and sadoldgit give it a rest? You're both unimaginably (and unimaginatively) boring, and together you come off like the headline double-act from purgatory.

    Unfortunately I am compelled to respond to point out when soggy tells blatant lies about me. Sadly he does it a lot. Clearly his tactic is to continually repeat the same lies in the hope that the mud sticks.

    You have come out on this forum backing up people like Trump, Yaxley-Lennon, Katie Hopkins, Rees-Mogg and Johnson. You ignored Sour Mash’s clearly racist outpourings on the terrorist thread preferring instead to have a pop at people supporting law abiding Muslims and immigrants. You came out with the famous phrase “socialism is dangerous.” I don’t recall you ever posting in support of anything slightly left of centre. Oh yes, there was your other classic, “thank God my wife isn’t a Muslim.”

    Plus of course the use of the alt-right avatar.

    I rest my case.

    As for you Verbal, still smarting over that Sotonians nonsense? If you had read my response you would have seen that I wasn’t supporting the original post and hit the like button for a completely different reason which I tried to explain to you in a pm. I think you had probably left at that point. Oh well...sorry if you think I am boring but I don’t think people like hypo should be left unchallenged. At least you know what you are getting with Sour Mash and he doesn’t pretend to be something he is not, unlike hypo. As you clearly are so much better at this and far more imaginative, I will leave it to you to carry the banner.
