EtcetEraThread So is Era really not normal?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory generalizations, cross-forum drama, and attacking the community
No. Considering one of the most prominent members of the old place was literally arrested for child porn, which plenty of people knew him well enough to band around him to donate money to before the allegations came out, you have to remember a lot of the community migrated from there to here. There are also plenty of great people here too, but unlike 4chan or reddit, the shitheads know they’ll get instantly banned for being shitheads, so instead of outting themselves they hide away and passive aggressively chip away at discussion/virtue signal/concern troll to try and get it out of their system. There is only one real topic that allows everyone to be as vitriolic as they want without reprecussion on here, I think that goes without saying what it is, and maybe you can observe and get a glimpse of a poster’s true colors. But other than that you need to follow the hivemind. The average poster - myself included - had no idea just how fucked up Amir0x was before the arrest, he was even pretty outspoken against bigotry, misogyny, and did his fair share of virtue signaling. This place is very far from normal and shouldn’t be an accurate representation of what the general consensus is in real life. Every poster shouldn’t automatically be taken in on the merits of “well, they’re an ERA member so they must be progressive and intelligent, there must be a reason for ” and every discussion shouldn’t be taken as analogous to how the majority of people in the real world think. That said, it can be a pretty neat place for discussion about certain subjects and it’s up there with reddit for me in terms of SFW forum posting

EtcetEraThread 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary | OT2 | New thread, same old candidates
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory and antagonizing commentary
That crowd has a very nasty habit of demonizing democrats, while at the same time backing an independent running for the endorsement of the democratic party. Theres a sense of entitlement that only the sanders crowd knows what's best for the party and the country, while at the same time doing jack fucking shit to canvass, raise funds, or otherwise assist any candidates running below the presidential level. Local politics- your state reps, senators, city councilmen etc are absolutely crucial in how the lives of everyday people are affected but the sanders wing is nowhere to be found when it's time to put the work in to get people elected and supported. I attended DSA meetings. Several in fact. The rhetoric is over the top nonsense about how democrats are the problem, democrats are in love with capitalism, and democrats need to be saved from themselves...presumably by sanders and his wing. This rhetoric has not gone unnoticed, the lack of downballot support has not gone unnoticed (from Sanders AND his supporters), and consensus among the democratic base is that these people can die in a fire.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing Racism and Inflammatory False Equivalences Over a Series of Posts
Oh, also forgot to mention, I think she pissed herself in anticipation of the Sex. Yeah, noIt's ok, I don't expect you Americans to understand it. Years in this community have thought me that cultural context matters A LOT in being able to understand seemingly basic concepts. Every German knows, that if he'd imply the existence of biological human races in public, it would not end well for him or her. Does not mean there is no racism, it's just framed differently. The idea that there is no racism in Europe is just the weird take Americans always seemingly get from it, even though nobody ever claimed it. I guess it is just hard to understand that racism can work in different ways. I guess that is probably also because of different cultural backgrounds, and why americans don't understand how "white" brits can be racist towards "white" polish people. It's kinda similar to how black face is handled, and how Americans can't comprehend that most Europeans do not understand it as inherently racist. Actually... I think it's quite a good analogy. The same way most Europeans don't understand blackface, 99% of Americans just don't understand why "Race" can be a sensitive topic. And I think, that if the U.S. ever wants to overcome their "race" issues, they absolutely need to have this debate first, because the continued usage of the concept and word just cements the status-quo

(i think the world got their first taste of that when lara logan got sexually assaulted during the egypt arab spring, i dont think anyone knew that was a thing before that) the vast majority of muslims live in arab and south asian countries and dont go around sexually assaulting women on new year's eves. and thats what he fails to realize, he is looking at cultural societal issues and appropriating them to religion. it would be like blaming all christians for uganda beheading homosexuals. aside from that blindspot, i find him very enjoyable to listen to and im muslim. sometimes you just gotta accept the fact that the person has their own prejudices.

On Ilhan, quite frankly, I support her but she has made multiple unforced errors and that is on her. I know she means well and I wish her the best but she needs to have a prepared speech proof read in the future (factual errors/wording being inappropirate). AOC is also a very progressive congresswoman but she doesnt make these unforced errors. Its not always just about race/gender/religion. Ilhan makes unforced errors.

Man I got dog piled and called a troll by a bunch of Russiagators yesterday for saying that at best we’d get some possible obstruction charges that’ll be impossible to act on anyway, and that for sure the full report would be full of collusion and traitorous action. But here we are and what’s the top headline on the Washington Post?.... “Report showed team struggled on obstruction issue.” Not even the WP will take a firm stance on obstruction, and no mention of collusion, treason, or 12 dimensional chess by Trump and team. I thought about doing a victory lap and quote posting all the people who were so convinced this was going to be a revelation in Russia/Trump coordination, but who has the time? Y’all know who you are. And I’m sure people are already forming conspiracy theories to validate their convictions within any redactions.
