The idea that corporates are withdrawing advertising from social media because they are horrified by whatever content is in the video their ad appears under - is false. As false as it was for 20 years before they suddenly decided, all at once, to adopt this new policy. It is a co-ordinated political action by political players, which is what capital and corporates are.

Could backfire as Trump is seen as the lone warrior up against the nedia and big corporations.
Michael Moore called 2016 a middle finger. It could happen again.

But Trump's Drain the Swamp has been shown to be vacuous.
Right now the only reason to vote for him is because the other guy is so deplorable.

I'd vote for Trump because he's doing such a brilliant job of smashing the USA's hegemonic position in the world.

Aye, it will be for commercial reasons rather than any sudden awakening of conscience.

There is a problem with racism in Ireland - as we can see on this forum all too often. But, INAR won't change that. I'm afraid only a general increase in the intelligence level of the Irish population will solve that matter - along with many others.
But you'd agree that INAR are generally doing good work, pointed in the right direction? Wouldnt your time be better served joining INAR and helping them become a more effective organisation. You could endear yourelf to them by bringing a list of all the major racists who use this board. You could discuss what re-education efforts are needed and what options are available for those irredeemable elements?
