From a hardcore Trump supporter:

Quote
You people are completely subverted, immunized against facts and reality. I don't know why I ever bother trying to debate or reason with you people.

Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Quote from: Drago Musevini's 'Manifesto'
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Which is a problem. If you are powerless.

I don't agree with the conclusion that the "real menaces" in that story is a society that doesn't care about the mentally ill. Nope, checked.the vid. It was definitely four arseholes tormenting him.

That said, it's absolutely true that mental illness becomes a convenient political football that's tossed aside when it's usefulness in making a moral point expires.

You mean like the fact that illegal immigration is at its lowest in decades?

Oh wait, by "facts and reality", you mean the Donald's claims.

That's not all. The author also blamed movies and video games. I guess the Nice and Berlin attacks were caused by Euro Truck Simulator.

It's funny enough in any context coming from a Trump supporter, but it's in reference to people calling him out for citing these two videos as credible sources on Islam:

Prefaced with this:

The ignorance in this thread about the history of Islam and the fall of the Classical world is appalling, though not surprising given liberal academia's refusal to teach real history. Watch these two videos and educate yourselves on the TRUE NATURE of Islam.

It seems like Black Lives Matter is suffering from the same problems as GamerGate, in that you one group that genuinely cares about the issue at hand, and another group of simple bigots using the former as a smokescreen.

Except that for BLM, the claimed issue really is a problem, while for GG it was a farce.

This kind of reminds me of something a villain of mine said, basically in a case of real life writing the plot of a story.

Quote
Lord Eclipse: You know, I previously had quite a hard time selling social darwinism to the left. The right gobbled it up, because in their infantile view point, that "apex survivor" is white, regardless how much I try to stress that all of their infirm and unworthy will be purged as well. The left perplexed me...but now, I've found a way to bring everyone into my tent, so to speak. Now, they feel cheated, like they, the rightful, powerful victor, was cheated by the weak, the worthless, the stupid...and that, that is a mindset that led those youths from Chicago to ME. Justice is a fine word, but when angry enough, its meaning becomes...whatever you feel like it is.

In terms of what's gone on there, its proof that when you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes right back into you.
I am offensively offensive. How Offensive!

Guess what Time magazine is blaming for the torture video?

http://time.com/4626743/chicago-torture-video/?xid=homepage

Before you click that link, make your best guess.

...Everything? That was difficult to read and it didn't make much sense. Just a random list of things that the writer didn't like and insinuation that they are the reason for this attack but no actual evidence or logic.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I guess Russia.

Edit: Okay, here's what I've managed to glean from it:

  • The author blames racism for this incident getting more coverage than cases where the victim isn't white.
  • The author is mad that this gets more coverage than a police procedure decision that he thinks is a bad idea.
  • Violent video games and movies!!!111
  • Gun control!!!111
  • This too shall be forgotten by the news cycle.

It's tamer than I thought it would be. Just somebody using this thing as a political platform, while simultaneously criticizing people for using it as a political platform. Same stuff you get from every school shooting. As you've already noticed by the thing before the edit, I thought they were going to go Godlike Productions on us.

The latest in truly weird brainfarts from the chans involves a joining of forces between the Nazis, the MRAs and the Incels, even though the Nazis and MRAs want the Incels to fuck off those Incel scamps just can't help themselves. It's called Operation B.A.B.B.Y.



Note orders for MGTOW nerd virgins not to post, I'm sure they'll behave themselves...


...nah!

And it's SOOPER, SOOPER SEEKRIT GUIZE!!!

I've actually read two of the studies this picture cites. One was a failed experiment, and another found women to have more neurons than men.

Besides, if we women really were so stupid and pathetic, how stupid and pathetic is a group of males (I hesitate to call them "men") that feels threatened by us?

I thought I'd take a gander at what the Trump fanboys are up to on Reddit...

Thread title: Spot the difference.


Quote
Messy but organized. That means he's busy GETTING STUFF DONE

Because everything is done on paper and those are definitely the real actual papers he gets and not just scenery for the photo-op?

Quote
One is a racist, evil man looking to divide our country and ruin global relationships in order to start WWIII and fill his pockets.

The other is President Donald J. Trump working for the people.

Unfortunately the "best" comments were deleted before I got back from work because originally this thread had a dozen more comments that a) called Obama a nigger b) Went on and on how Trump is an ALPHA MALE while Obama is a cuck c)  complained about Obama setting his feet on the desk in some other photo and how Trump would never do something so boorish.

Seems like they do a lot of cleaning up in there. In fact, there's another Reddit group made up of people who get banned from the fanclub. (Reasons for banning vary from trolling to not being a sycophant or simply asking if the others really think that Trump is cool.)
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
