  4. Yeah, just past Rectum Roundabout

    Right-wing to the bongs and the rest of Europe is considered center-left in the US so that's not surprising at all

  6. It's at the end of Intestinal Way.


    But seriously, for all the money the Globalists have, you'd think they could pay someone to come up with a better angle than "Any and all disagreement is far-right!"

  8. Colon is Spanish for Columbus. I believe his Spanish name was Cristobal Colon. There are a lot of places in Latin America called Colon for that reason.

    My stance on Catalan independence is that it’s off the table until the Catalan authorities can stop Barcelona being the crime-ridden shithole it currently is.

  9. The Democrats aren't seen as Nazis, but more as conservatives - they're more like the modern Tory Party in the UK, while the Republicans stray into old school Tory/UKIP lines.

    The Soc-Dems in the Democrats though would fit more into the Labour Party than they would the Tories.

  10. Catalonia will only happen in the most extreme of circumstances, for the same reason any regional independence movement in Europe (outside of the Balkans) fails: because it will empower every other separatist movement in western Europe. If Catalonia forms, the Basques, the Occitans, Northern Italy, and Bavaria all start pushing for independence with renewed vigor and public support.

  12. Spain is a regional empire that was cobbled together by the Castilians (which most of the world today just calls the Spanish), didn't exist in practice until 1516 (under the Habsburgs), wasn't defined in written law as the true government over the various states and peoples within its borders until 1715 (under the French Bourbons), didn't have a written constitution until 1812 (which was basically worthless because Napoleon and his puppets held the country by the balls and was then repealed in 1814), and became a revolving door of far-left and far-right regimes up until Franco's death in 1975 and the failed military coup in 1981. It's almost like Austria-Hungary, except it was neutral in World War One and thus wasn't fragged.

    Catalonia has been a problem child for Spanish Kings ever since it lost its independence to Aragon in 1162, and as long as only the far-left nationalists and far-right nationalists within the region are visible in Catalan politics, it'll continue to be this way forever.

  13. First of all the Catalonians voted 90% for independence in October of 20-fucking-17 and Madrid just said “naw fuck that” declared it illegitimate with police brutality. Now the socialists, in power for 36 years (in a row?!) are screaming “far right” at anything moving towards the proposal? Holy shit, fuck globalists.

  14. The official line is that the poll was organised by the Catalan authorities without approval from Madrid, and as an extension of this anti-independence factions in Catalonia boycotted the poll. I can believe there was a boycott from the pro-Madrid side, but it's fair to say the response from Madrid was really heavy handed.

  16. Madrid seemed to know what the results would look like ahead of time because they were closing down polling stations on the day of the vote.

  17. To be honest, Democrats are much more right-wing than most of the conservative or otherwise right-wing parties in Europe. From european perspective almost all parties in USA are more or less ultra-right-wing, while from american perspective almost all european parties would be almost socialistic in agenda. For example, in my country all parties, including those whose main agenda is the advancement of capitalism or conservative christian values, are more to the left than Democrats.
