Looks like fluffier woke up after a weekend of pounding down trendy Ballard sours (phony beer for you who wisely stay away from that stuff).

It’s not too late, flugger. Start playing catch up reading The Classics and you might gain an understanding of human nature instead of just rehashing snark from Tv shows.

Serious question. How is this different than the white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville. This seems like a terrible precedent to set in Seattle.

Well, it is different in that it isn’t a racist rally it is a gathering of business leaders and academics to discuss technology and innovation. Conferences and rallies are not even close to the same thing.

elenchos2 – I am guessing that you are just trying to fuel the flames started by Uncle Bucky, Uncle Buck and now known as Censorship Hag.
The answer to your question is that meeting of this type, with “topics ranging from blue technology (maritime), green/clean technology, smart cities, educational technology, financial innovation, and, “the Internet of Things” happen ALL the time in Seattle and most other cities in the USA.
They have nothing to do with racist, aggressive ideologies that so called white nationalist waste their time on.

But it’s still going to have a shocking lack of diversity which is what drives all of this anyway.

Maybe you should write to the summit organizers to ask about their DEI policies. I’m sure they would be fascinated by your acute insights.

Globalism is aggressive. Forced diversity is aggressive. The scale of that compared to the handful of “white nationalists” is like comparing a mosquito to a shipping freighter.

I bet your Proud Boy buddies think you’re an intellectual. Sad.

This is a good take^^^
Liberals want to get rid of all the workers because they shipped off their jobs to Asia. The angry backlash – and massive suicides in the Rust Belt – are now all just “vile racists who should die anyway”. It’s a very convenient way to mask their own classism.

He was banned from reality and logic long ago.

Everyone is not perfect in writing. Writing is a skillful job and it is not possible for everyone to write. Most of the students hate writing essays in school time. It is a time-consuming process. They search for online essay websites so that they can find the essay which they want to write. I prefer all of you to go to this company website and you will find an affordable essay writing service here which will be helpful to you and I can assure you about the service of this website. It is a trustworthy site.
