I miss the days when we could just write off John Bolton as an unequivocally crazy person, instead of the least batshit insane person in a room full of certifiably batshit insane people.

u/davidreiss666 Aug 13 '22

Bolton is batshit insane, but he represents a highly intelligent version of batshit insanity. He understands that political tools one uses to seize power are not necessarily representative of the truth. That at the end of the day, the political leadership still needs to know what the true state of affairs is and deal with it.

In short, Bolton knows that the bullets and bombs of his enemies could still harm him in the event if a war.

Where as the Newsmax idiot things the fact that he 'redefined' reality to seize power means the base reality actually changed and that somehow his political enemies now no longer have bullets or bombs that can harm him.

Both views are wrong. But the second is more wrong then the first.

u/LateNightPhilosopher Aug 13 '22

It's a weird feeling when someone like that is the voice of reason in the room. I felt the same in 2015-16 when Trump was gaining popularity and there was a period of time when Glenn motherfucking Beck was the only right-wing media personality sounding the alarms about how crazy and dangerous Trump was. Like, jumping up and down screaming at a conspiracy board fired-from-FOX-for-being-too-crazy Glenn Beck. Who I'd catch on his radio show warning about Trump and promoting some non profit he'd founded to resettle coptic Christian refugees from ISIS territory into the US. It was wild.

The Trump administration was so incompetent, corrupt and flat out dangerous that the crazies from the Bush administration look sane by comparison.

23

u/Signature_Sea Aug 13 '22

Yeah, it feels like that in the UK too.

It seems likely that Truss will become our new PM, continuing the improbable trend of every PM we have had being the worst one we have ever had, until the next one comes along.

Cameron was responsible for us kicking ourselves out of the EU, but he seemed statesmanlike in comparison to May.

May was a racist and control freak who robotically repeated the same meaningless slogans and managed to alienate everyone else in the EU resulting in her standing around at international functions like Billy No mates. But she had a genuine sense of duty unlike Johnson.

Johnson is just a black hole of pure selfishness and dishonesty and chillingly similar to Trump. But at least he isn't Truss.

Truss is obsessed with her Instagram and curating images of herself cosplaying Thatcher, she is totally lacking in self awareness and so stupid that she assured the House of Parliament that dogs were a good investment in prisons as they deterred the drones that prisoners use to bring in drugs.

u/Flavz_the_complainer Aug 13 '22

Cant believe im doing this but im gonna stick up for May here.

Cameron is right up there with Tony Blair as my goat pos prime ministers list. Yes even higher that Boris although Boris is also up there.

The whole brexit affair was due to his arrogance and him wanting to prove a point. He was playing fast and loose with our countries future to stroke his own ego. I honestly think if we had a referendum now we would revert because I know from talking to a lot of leavers that a common undercurrent was voting leave as a way to give the arrogant posh twat the finger.

Then when it doesnt go his way, instead of doing the honourable thing which would be to stand up infront of the country and say "Obviously that didnt go the way i'd hoped but as someone whos passionate about this country im going to endeavour to get us the best leave deal we can."

He just said naaa fuck it, threw his toys out the pram and pissed off. Leaving poor Theresa May, someone who never wanted the PM seat as far as im aware and was a staunch remainer to not only clean up his fucking mess but to take all the blame for it too.

Dont get me wrong she was shit, but she shouldnt have been there in the first place.

Tl;dr fuuuuuuuuck you David Cameron

u/TheYeastHunter Aug 13 '22

a common undercurrent was voting leave as a way to give the arrogant posh twat the finger

I didn't vote but live in an area that has a lot of 'lower class' folk and this was the main reason they gave at the time.

Reddit loves to say they wanted all the immigrants out or that they were conned by Russian propaganda, but everyone I spoke to at the time said they did it to spite posh cunts. Who were all voting remain

1

u/Flavz_the_complainer Aug 13 '22

Preach.

I think there was understandably a lot of upset and anger over brexit and in times like that its far easier to find someone to hate rather than reasoning that it was likely a protest vote gone wrong.

Cameron would have absorbed most of it but he fucked off and opened the door up to party boy Bojo to have carte blanche with the countries future.

Dont get me wrong of course there were people who voted leave for racist reasons but im yet to meet one and I think to write off 50% of the country as racist isolationists has completely split our fair nation probably forever.

Ill say it again fuck you Cameron you pig fucking pos.

1

u/Strujiksleftboot Aug 13 '22

Cameron was one of the best democrats we've had. I don't believe leave was the correct outcome but anyone thinking otherwise is probably too young to have experienced what preceded it. Referendums on a voting system (good job Labour for opposing that...), the EU & Scottish independence.

Good that Blair is high on the shitlist, he was responsible for the massive net migration increases since 97 that caused Brexit.

The common undercurrent wasn't sticking it to Cameron. It was that the poorest communities had gone through a decade of unprecedented year on year massive net migration increases that'd depleted working conditions, wages and living conditions.

u/jesustwin Aug 13 '22

Whilst Blair fucked up hugely with Iraq he was a brilliant Prime Minister who did superb things for this country both domestically and on the world stage (Iraq aside, of course)

You posting and believing this drivel makes you the same as this newsmax host.

u/Vulture80 Aug 13 '22

Cameron was directly responsible for brexit, even if it may not have actually intended it. May clearly isn't racist and while she made an absolute pig's ear of her time delivering it, she, like Cameron was somewhat held over the barrel by the shift to the right of the consevative party after they absorbed the Ukippers

1

u/Strujiksleftboot Aug 13 '22

You've a bad understanding of history and politics.

Cameron was elected on a manifesto to offer a referendum, which any Tory leader at the time would've done - for which he was elected. The politics at the time required a referendum. Cameron then campaigned for remain.

If any politicians are to blame for Brexit it's Blair & Brown for not delaying full migratory rights to EU expansion countries. The net migration statistics since 1997 are irrefutable - without a substantial change in policy Brexit was inevitable.

That's the thing. The big name republicans from the Bush administration weren't crazy. People thought they were for some stupid reason but they weren't crazy and they weren't dumb. They were very sane and very intelligent. They were just massive fucking douchebags.

u/-SneakySnake- Aug 13 '22

Cheney was both very rational and very intelligent. That makes him worse than the MAGA crowd, because lots of them are either too stupid or too deluded to understand the gravity of what they do. He doesn't have that defence.

Bolton is the old-school kind of soulless warhawk conservative, so to accuse him of not knowing the foreign affairs he was recently involved in under the previous administration made him realize how stupid both the segment and interviewer was. Super strange to see him both smile and laugh in his face lol.

1

u/GogglesPisano Aug 13 '22

Bolton is twisted and evil, but he’s not stupid. As a former National Security Advisor he is also extremely well-informed about the state of the nation. I’d certainly take his word over the bloviating Trump-fellating talking head he’s arguing with.

u/BreedinBacksnatch Aug 13 '22

Second largest amount of votes < largest amount of votes (Biden)

This country is ever growing, each election more voters. You could argue he motivates his supporters to vote, but evidently not as much as Biden

u/uppenatom Aug 13 '22

I think it's more that he motivates Biden followers to vote. Everybody with half a brain saw what he did to your country and the rest put their fingers in their ears and started singing 'star spangled banner'

u/-SneakySnake- Aug 13 '22

The Madman theory, they cite it with Nixon. The problem there is it doesn't work with Nixon either; it just made other countries escalate military spending and readiness. He personally thought it would scare the shit out of North Vietnam and get them to either surrender or agree to a permanent two-state solution. Look how that worked.

Our country is fucked along IQ lines. The median IQ is 100. 70 and you are mentally disabled. HALF the population has an IQ less than 100. They vote accordingly. Its why the races are so close. Which way is the intelligence center line tipping at that particular moment? Keep em' dumb.

(fixed number typo...thx)

3

u/Darkcel_grind Aug 13 '22

You realize 100 IQ is meant to be a representation of AVERAGE intelligence right? How do you think that the national average in most western countries falls right around this spot? Assuming 100 IQ is average(in USA it’s actually 98) its perfectly reasonable that 50% of people will be below that.

That doesn’t mean 50% of people are not intelligent. In fact most of us reading this, most likely you included are somewhere between 90-110. It doesn’t mean someone with 95 IQ is dumb and not fit for decisions.

5

u/teh_mooses Aug 13 '22

IQ is a worthless and racist metric.

It measures one thing. How good you are at taking IQ tests.

Not to say education is not fucked, and the sheer mind numbing dumb of this modern world is not a thing - but IQ is probably the worst metric to even use here.

https://oxsci.org/iq-is-meaningless-heres-why/ is a great read on this subject.

u/Darkcel_grind Aug 13 '22

Not to mention, that poster implies that someone with IQ of below 100 somehow isn’t fit to vote or make decisions. Eugenics much?

A large proportion of the population falls between 90-100, it doesn’t mean they are dumb knuckle draggers who are causing the downfall of this country…

4

u/teh_mooses Aug 13 '22

For real. It's such a useless and generally silly metric. Sure, it can be useful for identifying people with serious cognitive issues that really need help (the super low end of the scale) but the middle/top end of the scale is nonsense.

The best example I have seen is that if you give someone a 'IQ test' in a language they are fluent in, but is their second language, and then give the same test in their native language - they will have a 'higher IQ' in the latter case. Or how the scores are lower depending on location, put people in an uncomfortable situation and they score lower.

If this were any other medical diagnostic tool, it would be laughed out of valid science. The results should be reproducible, and they are just not.

I can't study for a blood test, but I sure as hell can study for an IQ test and skew my results higher or lower at will. That shows there's a problem and we're probably talking old silly Eugenics nonsense.

Host looks like squeezed dick.

Can I just say I haven’t felt safe under either president?

u/ChessyLogic Aug 13 '22

Asks guest a question immediately talks over every word he says lol

u/nekocase Aug 13 '22

Never thought the day would come were I would be on John Bolton's side.

u/Morphik08 Aug 13 '22

Conservative hosts are all the same. The second their guest starts to disagree, they shout and ramble trying to drown out the guest speaker. They can’t have an actual conversation because the guest is usually better prepared to argue the point and would make the host wrong.

1) Why we should listen to anyone who had a foreign policy position in the W administration about anything whatever to do with foreign policy ever in the future is beyond me. How do we expect to do better if there is no price for failure?

2) about this, he is absolutely correct. Stopped clocks and all.

Asking any Trump supporter to read anything is the mistake made here.

This is what you fucktards consider a “public freak out”? Fine, continue your circlejerk

u/TooManyThorns Aug 13 '22

What part of this isn't a public freak out? He's literally freaking out on Public T.V

u/DiertiestofHarrys Aug 13 '22

Two people arguing on TV? I thought this sub would consist of Karen’s in a Walmart parking lot duking it out

u/TooManyThorns Aug 13 '22

You're thinking full on ballistic, this is more mild and just something to smack your palm against your face about.

u/Alternative-Ninja-50 Aug 13 '22

checks comment history trump supporter

Face it. He lost. It's over.

u/DiertiestofHarrys Aug 13 '22

Trump is a fuckin loser. Never voted for him and never will.

u/looselytranslated Aug 13 '22

I love how they both talk over each other and still able to know how to respond.

u/Rbreaker2 Aug 13 '22

GOP in 2022. “You worked with him. I didn’t. You know first hand. I don’t. You actually created and brought forth policies with him. I didn’t. I know more than you” It’s incredible the hold this conman has on so many people.

u/Marvelman02 Aug 13 '22

Geez, is this an interview or not?

1

u/Zestyclose_Length976 Aug 13 '22

It always blows my mind when they invite people on and don't ever listen to their rationale and only talk over them with their ignorant objective over and over as if they are are the type of freakout video or Maury povich guest that keeps repeating "i said what i said"over and over. How tf are we supposed to come together and understand each other if no one listens?

u/artmobboss Aug 13 '22

God damn that was entertaining

1

u/OrwellianZinn Aug 13 '22

You know things are off the rails when John Bolton sounds reasonable.

1

u/Humble-Inflation-964 Aug 13 '22

Can y'all believe people have this job... They literally get paid to sit in front of a camera and spew shit out of their mouths all day long. I feel like I'm watching Infowars.

1

u/GotMeSomeInternet Aug 13 '22

Partisan shit aside this anchor dude talks and acts like a 10 year old stuck in an overly plastic surgical 60 year olds body. Only the right wing media can manage to make a guy like John Bolton seem like a political genius in a 2 minute clip.

1

u/Danielle082 Aug 13 '22

Only a fool would do an interview on this network. What did he expect to happen.

1

u/annaleigh13 Aug 13 '22

First, why would anyone be a guest on a show where you’re talked over?

Second, why would you go on if you dared to differ in opinion, considering newsmax reputation and what appears to be a host who doesn’t know what listening is.

1

u/[deleted] Aug 13 '22

Anyone know where the full video lives?

1

u/Rigo3oh Aug 13 '22

No one reads any more! It’s all about what “they believe” and that makes it true.

1

u/randomlyme Aug 13 '22

What a tool.

1

u/dontlookatmynam Aug 13 '22

Damn is it normal that people act so disrespectful on TV during discussions? You can have a different opinion and still let other people speak their mind. Disgusting.

1

u/roscocoltrane Aug 13 '22

John Bolton has a line. He is crazy but coherent. Like a white taliban. Trump isn't even coherent.

1

u/thatloudblondguy Aug 13 '22

what the fuck is wrong with the guy on the left? he looks like he had an anaphylactic bee sting during a face off style facial reconstruction surgery

1

u/timmy6591 Aug 13 '22

At least he has some shred of integrity in the face of insane horseshit. Surprising how many "conservative thinkers" don't.

u/no_anesthesia_please Aug 13 '22

Found out why I have never hear of Newsmax

u/k0nfuz1us Aug 13 '22

there is a saying in germany: when to idiots argue, no one can win.

u/Alternative-Ninja-50 Aug 13 '22

The wheels are falling of the GQP train.

Choo Choo mother fuckers.

u/arcspectre17 Aug 13 '22

I would love to see trump strategy in chess lol.

u/dsb227 Aug 13 '22

This is how cray the world has become- John Bolton is the voice of reason.

1

u/bigearth36 Aug 13 '22

Opinion anchor believes he actually would know enough to debate foreign policy with someone (albeit a huge d-bag) who actually worked in foreign policy explains a ton about why America is where we are right now.

1

u/drunkondata Aug 13 '22

Obviously a newsmax host knows more about American Security than a former National Security Advisor of the United States.

1

u/Ok_Bottle_271 Aug 13 '22

No one older than 65 should be allowed to serve in politics..full of geriatric self serving flogs

Could someone get me another bowl of popcorn?🥹

u/SlimeyBurgerBun Aug 13 '22

Is " chubby, sweaty and squeezed into a size-too-small-suit" the modern Republican style?

It's not a good style.

1

u/Baboocha Aug 13 '22

We were safer under Trump?! THE WHOLE WORLD WAS IN FUCKING DANGER

1

u/genz027 Aug 13 '22

Why won’t that greased up meatball let him talk.

1

u/blue_pen_ink Aug 13 '22

Why even have a guest if they can’t get a word in?

1

u/blackjazz_society Aug 13 '22

Bolton is a really horrible person but he's very smart and knows what he's talking about at all times. You need to be as knowledgeable as he is if you want to counter him in a debate.

1

u/[deleted] Aug 13 '22

is the "host" tan or having a heart attack?

1

u/Valant0324 Aug 13 '22

Fuck Bolton.

He had a chance to say all of this while Trump was in power. He waits till now

1

u/SAMBO10794 Aug 13 '22

Neo-Conservative.

John Bolton is a very terrible man.

He helped orchestrate the ‘Middle Eastern Wars’ with the Bush administration and is always pushing for the United States to send troops to some small country to ‘liberate’ them.

For him to say America is safer under Biden should make you really, really think.

Ps. For the tribal-minded folks; my hatred for Bolton predates Biden, Trump, and Obama.

1

u/shawnsblog Aug 13 '22

Bolton is nuts, BUT, he’s a smart crazy…dude knows what he’s doing. Probably a little bit better than some quack host on some show.

I wish they’d stop giving these people time.

1

u/Kattorean Aug 13 '22

OK. It's a bit amusing to watch Bolton become a "trusted voice" , after being degraded.

Veteran establishment "diplomats" working hard to maintain their "philosophies" & "policies", while ignoring the changes that require new policies & approaches.

They are swimming against the tide. Adapt or fail.
