EtcetEraThread Glenn Greenwald resigns from The Intercept
Reason User Threadbanned (pending further review): JAQing off
I believe the truth is important and thus far we have no evidence to believe that the laptop is Russian disinformation. No one in Biden's camp has ever claimed the emails and texts aren't real. Both of those factual statements lead me to believe we should be okay with raising questions about the information laid out in the leaked material. If those questions lead to nothingburgers, that's fine. But we shouldn't be afraid of having the questions asked.

EtcetEraThread Do you agree with this Joe Biden statement?
Reason User Banned: Inflammatory comparison
There is no overthrowing the system anymore, at least not in today's America. A bunch of people can go cosplay as anarchists and throw bricks at buildings for a few weeks, but that's not going to affect even a fraction of the larger population that will still be comfortably carrying on as if nothing's happening and will still be propping up the system. So that boils down violence to just raising public awareness, basically. But you can raise public awareness just fine with peaceful protests, and you still ultimately need elected officials to enact the changes you want from the protests, so voting is still equally as important as protesting. I suppose you could directly affect change through violence by going full blown terrorist and taking over cities with guerilla warfare tactics. But honestly, fuck off if you seriously support something like that. So yes, I agree with Biden's statement. And reading all this edgelord shit promoting violence on this forum is starting to get insufferable. It's like when 4chan cheers on school shooters.

EtcetEraThread Reuters: Three dead in knife attack in French church, woman beheaded
Reason User banned (1 month): Downplaying Islamophobia and talking down to a minority member’s concerns over a series of posts
I wasn't equating the two or didn't mean to if it comes across like I was. And while you never said anything about Muslim leaders it sure read to me as though you were saying people shouldn't have to distance themselves or condemn these attacks as they are a small minority of the Muslim community which it really shouldn't matter how large a percentage extremist ideology makes up, it should be called out and condemned, especially from people within that community that hold power. I was hoping to understand why you feel personally responsible when people call for Muslims to denounce these attacks as I just don't understand why someone would feel that way. A woman has had her head cut off because of cartoons and you're upset that people want Muslims to condemn it because it might make people feel responsible. Which is something I just can't get my head around.Why are you assuming the condemnation of these attacks is directly aimed at decent people or even sane ones? The hope is that with more outright condemnation from people with power and familiar ties we can prevent more attacks like these in the future by preventing the ideology to spread. Religion allows people to do awful things to other humans while feeling completely righteous while doing it. Do you think the person cutting off heads in the name of God was always going to end up hurting others? I don't believe they would and I think its wrong to say only evil people fall prey to extremism. I sure as hell hope we lived in a world where every white supremacist Christian terrorist was denounced by everyone in that community and within the family. White supremacy wouldn't be so damn widespread if people were willing to condemn it at every opportunity.

Yea, same. I was taking a "to each their own" with beliefs, but now I'm actively annoyed. On the topic of "Islam is evil" or whatever - it is absolutely undeniable that in the present day you see more violent rhetoric acted upon using Islam as the tool/excuse. Christians are content with just using racism and/or sexism. The other religions seem to have their shit in order at least (and no I don't consider Israel's actions as a state to be reflective of Judaism - fuck Netanyahu).

EtcetEraThread Reuters: Three dead in knife attack in French church, woman beheaded
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Victim Blaming
If drawing a specific cartoon will, without fail, cause some psycho to kill one of your neighbors, then at what point does responsibility become shared? Is the solution just an endless cycle of provocation in order to reaffirm your individual freedom until there are no more zealots or no more neighbors? A consequentialist would argue that “It’s just a cartoon” is inherently flawed. Maybe that approach would work to shame people out of radicalization in a different universe, but it seems to not work here.

EtcetEraThread Reuters: Three dead in knife attack in French church, woman beheaded
Reason User banned (duration pending admin review): Xenophobic dogwhistle, prior severe infraction for antisemitism
Can’t say I disagree with Macron’s stance on this and closing down the mosque of the teacher beheader which was peddling extremist philosophy to its attendants. I’m sorry but we have a different set of beliefs in the west over this stuff and a right to freedom of expression. Forbidding us from expressing that should never be allowed and if you hold such an extreme belief (that leads mentally deranged people to kill and behead innocent people) then you have no place here. We wouldn’t welcome in a religious cult if they abused children, so why allow these kinds of people? There’s Islamophonia for sure which I detest, but I don’t think it’s wrong to discriminate against people with an absolutely beyond fucked moral compass to the point where drawing cartoons in any way justifies even a modicum of violence, nevermind this insanity.

I mean if we're just looking at that tweet I don't disagree. Testosterone develops bone density which is a permanent change to the body. It's not TERFy to think it's insane/dangerous to allow people with such a physical advantage fight other women. Saying the slur word isn't great but also I have the capacity to understand it's a comedian trying to provoke. I don't take my comedians seriously or look at them for ethical guidance. I'm not sure why the world seems to think that's how things should be now. Besides the point - I think Tim is hilarious most of the time. The best comedians have the ability to completely fuck your moral compass and leave you stunned and gasping for breath. I wouldn't quite put Tim in that category - maybe someone like Hans Teeuwen.

Reason User banned (3 weeks): Dismissive and insensitive commentary in a sensitive thread
You realize the majority of the country votes this way, right? Republicans and moderate Democrat voters don’t get most of the policies they want from the candidates they elect. You act as if you’re the only ones not getting exactly what you want exactly when you want it. Them being more regular and reliable voters makes them more valuable to the respective parties than activists who don’t vote in every election. Stuff like the judiciary took a long time for Republicans to transform while their voters reliably voted Republican under Obama to keep him from implementing policy even though they didn’t get their own policies passed. The party can’t ignore you if a larger and larger bloc in congress represent your ideas. AOC, Jayapal, Markey, etc won seats in safe blue districts. Showing up and electing more like them moves the party left while not risking taking steps backwards by losing the majority altogether.

France and Britain are highly responsible for the rise of religious extremism and radical fundamentalism in West Asia and North Africa.
