It's fucking ridiculous to try and keep everything into one giant megathread when that literally just does nothing other than drive people AWAY from talking about these things. Like you really think that people wouldn't look a little more apprehensively at a candidate knowing their relationship with a noted segregationist? Of course they would. It's absurd, it's a blatant controlling of the narrative to try and stifle any ACTUAL discourse outside of the 15 people in this incredibly opaque thread arguing in circles, as has been stated dozens of times with absolutely no actual answer other than "it goes in here until the debates" as if that's not incredibly arbitrary. This is a discussion forum with the STATED rule "new news, new thread".
