Comment Re:/. editors: why do you maintain this shit hole? (Score 4, Insightful) 1149

Donald Trump broke this place. I used to think the anti-immigrant rhetoric here was 90% related to H1B misuse and 10% racism. After noting how strongly /. fell behind Trump (an anti-science, anti-net-neutrality, racist dog-whistling lunatic) it seems obvious I was wrong.

It's so interesting the rights you conservatives choose to give a shit about. Second hand smoke and the right to fire pointy metal bits at high velocity are defended to the death. The right of two men to marry, of workers to collectively bargain, of everyone to see a doctor - meh.

Will Trump being president be a disaster, probably.. but at least it would shake things up and make the elite take notice how easily they can be replaced by the unsatisfied masses when the option presents itself.

Thinking that a presidential "disaster" might be a good thing is more elitist than any of the attitudes of the people you seem to despise. A presidential disaster likely means a unemployment, homelessness, and hunger to us plebs. Even if you don't like her a vote for Hillary means 4 more years of status quo with a chance to vote for someone else in 2020. A vote for Trump is a vote for chaos, only the truly elite can survive that.

their tantrums are pushing me more and more to vote trump

You could make a similar argument throughout history to justify voting into office any of the great tyrants. I see this sentiment over and over again on slashdot and it perplexes me. Yes, people dislike this unapologetically racist, sexist, liar and yes, some of them are very vocal about it. That is not a reason to vote for him

Is Hillary perfect? No, not even close. But if you vote for her you can rest assured that in four years we'll have another election in which you can vote for someone you find less repulsive. A vote for Trump is a vote for chaos and a move of the political needle in the direction of fascism.

I don't even want to go into the fact that his cars are, for the most part, coal powered.

Just no. You're faulting Elon for the overall makeup of the US energy market?

Nevermind the fact this entire discussion is based on Elon saying we should move away from fossil fuels in our production of electricity.

Nevermind the fact that what you said is just plain wrong, 62% of US electricity comes from non-coal sources.
