Prince Harry got a message for Americans.

A fairly large portion of the Republican Party would qualify as far-right in a lot of first-world countries tbfh
I'm not sure that any politician who has attacked the voting rights of their citizenry would be welcome in much of the western world.
They are perfectly at home in Russia though! There's a reason we call em Kremlin Cruz and Moscow Mitch
The Democratic Party would be right wing in most countries.
Yeah. Their policies would be more in line with conservatives in most of Europe, for example. They're liberal in relation to the Republicans.
Yup. Dems aren't even really center on a global political compass.
We have to be wary of this; Because it leads to voter apathy, which Republicans would love very much. Or it leads to " both parties are the same"
If anything it just reminds to me vote in the primaries. Push the furthest left candidate we have to the forefront, until we have a further left candidate. It's the exact same idea with the right, they've been pushing further and further right.
Exactly. It's how we ended up with Brexit Conservatives in the UK. UKIP were stealing so many votes, the Conservative Party leaned right to recapture their old voters.
Voting third party can still shift mainstream politics in a FPTP system. The only problem is that it tends to benefit right-wing movements better than left, as left wing movements seem to have a greater tendency to fragment.
0% interest rates for Wall St, pre-emptive invasions via executive orders resulting in endless war, enhanced War on Drugs that target minorities, funding torture chambers like guantenamo bay, extending The Patriot Act. All bipartisan. Tremendous amounts of corporate bailouts for the well connected while average Americans get scraps. Privatized gains, Socialized losses.
How are they different again? Social issues only right? Love getting distracted from the important issues and keeping the status quo for decades..
But muh Maga... But muh Occupy Wall St.. But muh Tea party.. But muh BLM
John Lewis Act, Medicare for all, Glass/ Stiegal, and let's not pretend that all Dems voted for Iraq War, and notice how regret was shown for that and the crime bill. Dude, I'm a black democrat. You think I'm not aware? But, in no way are the parties the same. Vote Green if you want, but I'm good
So I respect your response it is refreshing, but I still do disagree.
1) Glass Stiegal was introduced by Carter Glass and Henry Steagall, both Democrats from the south. Their republican buddies loved it too.
2) The Iraq War had support from Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden (majority leadership).
They're all crooks. Republicans and Democrats after? "We're Sorry."
I bet you we agree on a lot of things. The ruling class just wants to pin us against each other because we have different colored skin. I'm not participating in anything that separates Americans based on ANYTHING other than their own individual thoughts/character. Religion, sex/gender, race -- I'm done.
Yes, the united states has two right wing parties, a liberal right wing party, and a conservative right wing party.
As measured by any other countries political metrics.
The only exception is a small faction inside the Democrats, a group of about 8 in the house of representatives called the Squad, and a single senator from Vermont.
No that's wildly exaggerated. The Dems are not a right wing party. You really think the base of the Dems, Black voters, are right wing? No
They absolutely are. They are Capitalist pro marked, anti regulation, anti taxes Right wingers with liberal social values.
The republicans believe in the exact same economic policy, but they are conservative when it comes to social issues.
They’re pro capitalism so yeah?
It’s not exactly a hard concept to grasp.
I agree. Somehow things change and democrats enjoy George Bush now.
The united states basically don't have a left-wing party at all. They have a right-wing party and an insane right-wing party.
Their children are american citizens, may someday be elected president. King George playing the long game.
I could care less about the royals, but I whole heartedly agree with him.
How much less?
An alien could land in the US and find out Republicans are assholes within 5 minutes. Doesn’t take long
He's right though
Funny.. Republicans would be happy to identify with monarchies.
And we fought this one 250 years ago. How soon they forget
Well, they don’t seem to remember that they lost the Civil War...
They don't remember they voted to extend the voting rights act under Bush... Overwhelmingly.
No memory at all.
In many ways there wouldn't be a republic without the monarchy, so you can detect a hint of saltiness, all of this could have been his if they hadn't got the shit kicked out of them.
With some help from the French monarchy.
Different republic chief.
Which would make sense... Is they haven't left the throne.
He made a great point, read some comments from these arseholes.
In order of good to worse
Good>bad> not making it to the toilet in time after a hard night of drinking> the democratic party > stepping on a Lego with a pruney foot> sitting between two fat guys on a 5 hour spirit airlines flight> The republican party
Ok, but where's the joke?
It’s a secret. Find it!
Ain’t that the guy who wore a nazi uniform for a joke?
Yep Halloween like 10 years ago. Might have dressed like Hitler or just a regular nazi can't exactly remember.
Wait republicans or the prince?
Some Republicans and the prince. Keep loving the prince though.
Why what's he bringing to the table?
People don't like him for his "amazing" personality or his work in the humanities, we're just entertained with him for bringing the oligarchy down and exposing them as the racist cunts they are.
I guess they forget he's a racist too. However! That's his fault! Let them all fall! Hahaha.
Exactly! He gets a pass because his wife has black traits that she didn't know about until recently.
He didn't get a pass at all. He publicly apologized for the bad taste after everyone wouldn't let it pass.
It happened like a decade before he met his wife. And which idiot Facebook meme did you get the idea that a black person wouldn't realize they were black? It's not like British tabloids were keen to let anyone forget that fact.
Bad taste huh. You got a black face and klansman in the picture. He's the same as his family. I mean I think you have to apologize for that. British don't find the Germans patriotic by any means either.
This doesn't explain how you think he got a pass, or how Meaghan Markle didn't know she was black.
And yeah, bad taste is still bad taste. You're saying it's not?
Oh he got a pass. Megan hasn't really played the black card until she finally was engaged to the prince. I was kinda joking about the she didn't know she was black. The only time she finally had a black friend was with maybe Serena Williams. The sorority she pledged with?!
Where on earth are you getting your information from? Like what specific source frames things the way you are here?
Its all easy for you to look up. One thing about royalty they make delve into one's life thats for sure.
Literally nothing I look up frames it at all this way, so I'm starting to question where you're looking if they're not showing up in regular channels.
Democrats are well meaning but incompetent
Republicans are openly evil
That’s really about all you need to know
The two different parties’ responses to coronavirus is evidence that what you said about Democrats is incorrect.
Everything is else is evidence is evidence I’m correct
Incompetent, or unwilling to provoke the anger of the other party. I think they're fucking cowards, and also corrupt, but not incompetent.
Republicans are openly evil.
Democrats want to appease Republicans
Republicans want to blow shit up
Dems need to grow some balls
Quite frankly, I don’t really care what a man from the lineage that destroyed the world has to say, his family’s got a lot of blood on their hands, the British monarchy is a fascist system that’s still for some reason being celebrated today and actually has a place in government, it’s quite frankly disgusting, though this man did stray from the pack, he’s still not exactly a person to like, we’ve got to hold Britain up to their sins, destroy the monarchy entirely, it was a terrible thing, it destroyed so many cultures, the fact that people still even talk about it shows how racism is still staining this world
Try to get acquainted with reality.
"People can say whatever they want, it's bonkers." Goes on Oprah "Anyways my family's super racist and killed my mom."
He's not wrong...
That Nazi uniform he wore proves it.
Man, I don’t care for those two at all. That’s it. Just had to share that.
Hello! Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately it has been removed because you don't meet our karma threshold.
You are not being removed for political orientation.
Let me be clear: The reason that this rule exists is to avoid unscrupulous internet denizens from trying to sell dong pills to our users. /r/PoliticalHumor mods reserve the RIGHT to hoard all of the dong pills to ourselves, and we refuse to share them with the community. If you want Serbo-Slovakian dong pills mailed directly to your door, become a moderator. If we shared the dong pills with the greater community, everyone would have massive dongs, and like Syndrome warned us about decades ago: "if everyone has massive dongs, nobody does.""
If you wish to rectify your low karma issue, go and make things up in /r/AskReddit like everyone else does.
Thanks for understanding! Have a nice day and be well. <3
