EtcetEraThread USSR invaded Poland in September 1939? WRONG - says Russian ambassy...
Reason User Banned (duration pending): inflammatory historical revisionism over multiple posts
Because access to non USA propaganda histories are easier to get ahold of. Lots of previous sealed war documents are now in the public domain that show that USA and western countries were not the GOD sent saviors of the world they have painted themselves to be. Let be clear- Russia did alot of terrible things- there is no excusing their invasions, gulags, and massacres. But Russia went from pre WWI when it was an economic partner to Britain and the USA (helping with west imperialist holdings), to suffering civil war during WWI. People ignore that Britain sent troops into Russia to help the losers. Stalin did reach out to West prior to joining the Nazis- but were ignored and rebuffed. The joining with Hitler was to give Russia time to rebuild it military to defend themselves. Russia had no western allies- Churchhill was happy to let them fight. People who paint Russia joining the Nazis as evil completely ignore that Britain and the USA were fine with letting Russia get beat by Hitler. Again, I don't condone what Russia did during that time, but it did not have to happen if the west would have stood with their one time allies instead of letting them face Hitler alone. Even after they joined the Allies, and Lend Lease, the deals were always tailored to benefit Britain troops over Russian troops. Stalin's mass mobilization of the Russian war machine (with the aid of USA money) was what dealt the crippling blow to to Germany- the Eastern front decimated the Nazi army though sheer brute force. After the European part of the war ended, The USA already started to change the deals it made with Russia. Again, the Russian did word the treated to give them wiggle room, but so did the USA, Britain, and France. The USA was able to lock up most of Europe into the Marshall plan, which locked USSR out of European trade block- which the war ravaged USSR desperately needed access to cash markets. It is typical Western capitalism- use resources of nations, then fuck the people there economically. The bombing of Japan was completely unnecessary- there is plenty of evidence that Japan was willing to negotiate an end to the war, the USA ignored them. The bombing was done to send a message to Russia. WE killed all those people just to make a point. If you go back into history after WWI- the again the western nations locked Japan out of the power block, leading to Japan attacking in WWII. The war is allot more nuanced then taught in the USA. Hitler is still terrible- but could have been avoid if the sanctions after WWI didn't drive German economy into the gutter giving him desperate population to control. The Russian Revolution needed to happen- life under the Czar system was terrible- but the west should not have interfered- setting up resentment with the new government. The USA only joined WWII for economic reasons- not because we were liberating anyone. USA denied Jewish refugees and sent them back to die. The USA win in WWII set up the USA's global dominance and reliance on wars to keep our economy running. And Churchhill is a piece of shit. Like Stalin, he had his moment of "heroism", but allot of his action during his career supported the imperialism and colonialism system that contributed to WWI and WWII. Look at Vietnam, Korea, the Middle East, Central and South America- look at what the USA has done to them for "freedom" and capitalism, it is really is no wonder why people look towards socialism. A good portion of western Europe has socialist systems that work along side capitalism. But here in the USA- the Red Scare and Communism still blind us to better forms of government.

It was early 20th century, maps changed almost on a monthly basis, and many countries either lost huge chunks of territory or disappeared altogether. So why would it be strange that opportunistic countries tried to take advantage. Poland crumbled like a house of cards, they were completely embarrased and outclassed. What should have Soviets done, let their people in territories occupied by Poland fall into German hands, especially Jews. Polish government back then were proper bastards, oopressing minorities (to say the least). They bit off more territory than they can chew and it backfired spectacularly. The tweet is correct.

GamingThread PC Gaming ERA | September 2019 - The Girls Are Back In Town
Reason User Banned (1 week): inflammatory point of comparison
That didn't come out of nowhere. Epic came in using the most antagonistic methods possible and their CEO has repeatedly stoked the flames of war. This whole EGS thing honestly reminds me so much of the current Brexit situation, and I think that's why I'm so frustrated with it. Basically you have a non-perfect but incredibly well-establishes status quo (the EU/Steam) being suddenly challenged by a newer, highly-antagonistic faction who wishes to completely disrupt that status quo (Brexiteers/Epic) for their own personal gain. That newer challenger mixes the legitimate issues with a whole bunch of overblown lies/hyperbole whilst getting both 'lower-folk' (Indies in this case, I honestly can't think of a better term) and money-focused elites (major publishers) on their side with promises of mass-prosperity. For us regular folk there's a arbitrary line being drawn in the sand that, frankly, very few people actually gave a shit about before, and that line has created a division and animosity between people that will likely never go away because it's a war that nobody can actually win. It's just so incredibly frustrating and I'm sick of these artificial crises being drawn up by those who are so very obviously just out for themselves.

EtcetEraThread Trying to be more informed about Palestine/Israel
Reason User Banned (5 days): Do not invoke Nazi comparisons in this topic
Nazi's felt it was OK for them to punish other races to create their beloved ethnostate because they felt that they themselves had been punished in the past by their "scheming". Nowadays we've got Israeli politicians calling for the destruction of other races in Palestine to secure a ZIonist ethnostate because apparently Arabs want nothing more than to exterminate all Jews. It might go into complex history of why the two ethnicities have and are clashing, but there's really easy to understand reasons why so many people find the actions of Israel's current government, and even opposition, disgusting. If you can't accept that the actions in Palestine are at their most very basic, ethnic cleansing, you need to rethink your position.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory false equivalence concerning bigotry. Previously banned for defense of bigotry.
That doesn't really make sense to me. This would be like saying that a Jewish family creating stationary for a customer wanting ironic nazi slogans on it should be forced to do it since they aren't the ones doing the speech, but the customer. It may be the customer's words, but the family is the one producing it in their product. Refusing to provide stationary without words on it would be a violation of discrimination laws, as far as I know. But when you get words involved, then it gets more complicated. Because its going from a general product to one that has content within.

Every single Switch port has issues. Every single one. I love my switch but there is literally no reason to ever buy a switch version of a game that exists on another console. Portability is cute until the game crashes (Tales of Vesperia which had issues on switch that it didn’t have elsewhere). Even ports of games that should have absolutely no issues running perfectly have problems. Can’t tell if it’s just devs being lazy or not caring about their Switch version or if Switch is some crazy hard to work with console (lol).

Reason User Banned (7 days): Justifying piracy, history of severe infractions
That’s sweet. I played earthbound for the first time on an emulator in 2006. I also have a physical copy that my sister purchased in 1999 that I played in 2010. I was also part of a 30+ member forum community of people who mostly played emulated games. We were all teenagers or in our early 20s, you think we had money to buy shit? So there’s roughly 20 people right there who pirated Earthbound. Here’s a hint, most people pirated Earthbound because most people weren’t going to pay $60 for Earthbound in 2003, let alone $50+ going forward. Also it’s been stupid expensive since like 2009. I’ve been following racketboy for long enough to remember their rarest SNES games list and while EB rated low on rarity, it still averaged about $100-$150 in 2009.

This is what is wrong with the left. Instead welcoming positive change with open arms, people expect you to die living a life they deem correct and then maybe you will earn their forgiveness/whatever it is you think you offer. Fuck this attitude. It's what fuels so many people to go right in the first place where they are welcome without being forever ridiculed for some dumb ass reason. Nobody has to burn at the stake and give up all worldy possessions to earn your good graces, it's unreasonable and illogical. No better than the thing you claim to hate.
